Especially the Yankee would be great for RP's. Kind of tired storing all my guns in Sentinels etc.

I'm actually happy that everybody agrees with the restriction as well. Thanks for the positive support, guys.

I suggested something like this a while back.

viewtopic.php?f=319&t=152179

Like I said in my post, we'd be allowing a LOT more roleplay with the ability to own and use realistic transporting vehicles (and not just Burritos).

Definitely a suggestion that' worth it.

Also, as someone mentioned, raise their price, by about 30% or so. I don't think that anyone would bother doing crazy stuff with the linerunner truck after spending 50 hours working for it.

Adding to it, if someone wants to RP using one of the trucks for what ever reason, the trucker driving the truck has to do /truckermission to start the engine, then for whoever is involved in the RP, illegal or legal, they would have to risk getting demoted and losing quite a lot of hours, since you can't /lock or /engine the truck either, and if its illegal RP, getting arrested and leaving the truck and goods there would definitely get you demoted.

This is true also.
Very little reasons not to add them to the buyable list, to be honest.

I haven't got my head around the recent changes, but I had assumed most of the trucks were available in the dealerships. They should definitely be purchasable.

Like Nine says, you can get hold of similar trucks in real life very easily - and surprisingly cheaply. I would prefer there to be a "Truckers' Licence" system instead of the job-based restrictions, but that's a different issue.

Put them in the dealerships.

There are no reasons not to add them tbh.

Plus adding them to buylist will reduce possible metagame.. I mean, now when you see a truck - you know, ooooh it's a trucker, lets *rob* him for 200$ he has, shoot him for fun and hopefully make him demoted.. trollololol.
Mmmm...

You got that right, my dear friend. I've been browsing, lately, in Craiglist and ebay, and they even sell out old trucks that were cement trucks and such. There are even look-a-like Yankee vehicles in real life that are being sold in this moment, even C.O.E trucks that are used for transport.

This is a MUST if we are talking about Trucker career's vehicles.

To the last post, the vehicles will be only for truckers with the right rank, because it'll minimize the idiotic driving.

Adding to this.

Most trucks in the US have air brakes, which require a CDL(Commercial Drivers License). Most trucks that are as big as the 'Yankee' need to have air brakes and require the license. People caught driving trucks with air brakes that do not have a CDL can get into serious trouble with the law and may risk getting their license revoked. Saying that, I think a CDL system should be implemented and the test for the license should be more complicated than the normal one. Also, most Boxville-like trucks have disk brakes and do not require CDL's.

I'd agree on the mentioned cars, but why not a securicar as well?
It would cost a lot, but it isn't anything restricted in the USA, unlike the SWAT trucks and other such

The Securicar is not really realistic. If only the Yankee and I would be happy.

Yes! Make them buyable for everyone, I would rather have sadler than the Yosemite while I have the trucker career. Pony should also be added as a trucker career vehicle. Anyhow, great suggestion.
