      Ads (altis delivery service) bugs

      BUG 1: Deposit Prices So I have completed a few jobs for ADS and have seen the deposit prices go up and up again, do not know if this is a feature or a bug. Example my current deposit to take a mission is $180,000 which is ridiculous as the highest paying mission is $147,036 from Sofia Cargo yard to SYD Port. A normal trucking company would lower the deposit needed for those drivers who have made successful deliverers before. BUG 2: Restraints in Vehicle Untested from rebel perspective, only experienced from driver(mission takers) side While on a trucking mission before, rebels decided to take me hostage and did not have pliers to unrestrain me. All was good but they were unable to pull me out of the vehicle to unrestrain me after they had placed me in the vehicle. I have not tested this from the rebel side and would imagine its not possible but they did seem new so they may have not known how to pull me out?

      I find this update incredibly helpful for all three sides within the server! All recently requested suggestions have been added by the looks of it. Great work!

      Problem is people need ID to confirm it's not some terrorist walking into PD I mean if you wanna do that when I'm on maybe we could have at least 1 person awarded it

      Just gonna chuck my personal opinion in even though its not really relevant to the topic. I personally hopped on Anzus a while ago, for an hour or so, checking everything out, yes they do have some good ideas but everything is clunky and not well made, full FPS drops when you enter the ATM stuff like that. Props to @Connor. for the well made mission file and assets within it because it definitely shows how much efforts been put in. If it is true that he's stolen mission files then that should be plain embarrassment to himself, you profiting off other peoples work which you didn't have the decency to pay for in the first place. I honestly hope I don't see you on Straya Frank and personally think you should think about yourself, change a bit because the person you were before, or still are now is one that shouldn't be associated to arma 3 RP.

      While driving back through Sydney to deliver to the port, I felt a touch of nostalgia and in turn felt it was necessary to make this post. Not everyone is going to agree with this post and that's just how the world works. While my time on the server has been limited (almost 6 months) I feel that most of the memories I have made were in Sydney, lining up on the wall when you were a pub-slot, the cancerous but quality RP SYD bridge, and all the people I met. I understand why head-administration did it, it must have caused complete and utter chaos in help desk and everyone needed a change, I just don't think I was ready for such a large change. I have been playing the new update for a while and although its nice to have a fresh new location to patrol and and new sights to see I still miss the old locations just as much. The same RP has staled out in Brisbane & Melbourne, compared to Sydney where you knew everyone would be. As I also come on during the mornings (NZST) I see alot of pub-cops and myself patrolling together, and since there isn't a city limits buffer its straight into gun welding rebels who are far better combat ready compared to fresh, green pub-cops (although some are very good a tazer rifle is completely useless compared to a 6.5 etc). I feel Sydney is completely useless now, I haven't seen many people there at all and one of the main reasons you would go there is because of deliveries. I feel this is a complete waste of quite a useful part of the map. By moving people around the map its caused the server to lose 1/4 of it again. Although I did feel the 'rebel' narrative was an amazing idea and executed very well with broken buildings, graffiti in Sydney etc it lacked involving the players, the whole thing could have been run a whole lot differently. I feel a different city that wasn't Sydney should have been chosen aswell, it seems weird to leave the largest city on the map completely useless. I do understand that higher-ups want opinions on the new map, and suggestions to keep it fresh. I just felt this post was necessary to get it off my mind and my opinion to be known, its up to you how you take it. Thank you Loxton

    11. Hey Guys This is my guide for you people who do not have ready access to a proper microphone. A lot's not as good as a proper microphone it can still do the job really well. Positives The plus side of it is that it makes roleplay and general gameplay a hell of a lot easier than. ZERO cost whatsoever Very short lag Available to both IOS (Android) and OS (Apple) Negatives The negative side is that you need to either pick up your phone to talk or have it close to your mouth all of the time. Guide to getting it working Click this to go the companies website. It has a more in-depth guide on the website if you have any trouble either consult that or myself. Sometimes it can be a little temperamental so give it a few tries.

      Skyfise already got there before me I'll link this thread to the DCOs and heres a link to the medic discord if you need it https://discord.gg/yeGQy2

      Not really. You have to make a little money to survive but it's not like its critical for anything unless you wanna play the rebel side. You can still have a bluty great yarn to people at Sydney market, I have met plenty of friendly people there

If you do not supply two referrals and they cannot be confirmed your application will be denied. (@their name) Referral One: @hugot Referral Two: Tickle Me Elmo (would tag but do not know his forum name.) Induction Training Completed By (Must have been completed no more than 30 days ago): Completed 8/09/2018 by 'Tickle Me Elmo' [Senior Constable] Questionnaire: - Why do you want to join the Altis Police Department (100 words min)?: Upon enlisting as a paramedic, hired due to my basic medical training, I saw the crime rates within the city be controlled when the police are plentiful but during the night when little police are on the crime rates increase and civilians cannot rely on the police. I endeavor to change this as I'm from New Zealand and tend to wake up earlier than other police. With my basic training within the police I hope to decrease the crime rate within this period. I will endeavor to help new civilians as much as possible with starting out and swaying them as much as possible to stay on the legal side of the law, while also communicating with rebels to sway them away from the life of crime. If you are successful; where do you see yourself in 3 months in the APD (50 words min)?: Either Senior Constable or Constable for the sole reason that I'm not heavily active as I'm only on one day a week. I would most likely be staying in GD as I enjoy patrolling inside city limits and participating in checkpoints. I will most likely decide on joining a division after three to four months with better knowledge of what they all do and the main objectives of each one. What do you believe you can bring to the Altis Police Department (50 words min)?: I believe I can bring my leadership skills (which I have shown in the APS, when I'm the highest rank online), my roleplay skills which have developed whilst playing on Straya and the many other roleplay servers on other games. I take heavy pride in my work to make it the best it can be and challenge myself to do better and develop new ideas to improve things which are difficult. Continuing on with ideas part I tend to find things that aren't working well or could be improved and have suggested ways to create more RP within the police force, paramedic services and civ roleplay. Do you have any experience as a Police Officers from other servers? No Other than Police, what previous role play scenarios have you been a part of on Straya-Gaming?: [SP-506] Loxton, I have had experience as a paramedic and was promoted yesterday. Was an aircraft controller for a few days, quit due to not many people willing to roleplay with it while flying. How much time can you dedicate to the Altis Police Department?: Approximately half my Saturdays, probably more in the mornings typically 8am-12pm NZST. As this is when I find it funnest playing in the police force. Have you ever been banned, kicked or watchlisted from Altis Life at any stage? If so when and why: I have not been banned, kicked nor watchlisted whilst playing Straya Gaming or Altis life. Conclusion: Have you read and understood the Altis Life Server Rules?: (Y/N) Yes Have you read and understood the Altis Police Department Protocols?: (Y/N) Yes By submitting this application you agree to the limitations of being a Probationary Constable that is set above: (Y/N) Yes Do you acknowledge that by partaking in illegal or 'Rebel' activities you do not have the right to apply for Police Divisions within the APD such as S.R.T., Detectives, PolAir and Police Academy or promotion to or past Senior Sergeant: (Y/N) Yes
    15. Hey guys! About a week ago I thought about doing one of my old ideas, doing guides. PUB-SLOT medics/ cops get a lot of stick for well being there, some of them do deserve it. But considering quite a lot of PUB-SLOTS are just there to help and learn I thought doing this guide would be a good idea. Hopefully, this guide will help all those players who want to join the PUB-SLOT slots be better and in turn, gain a better name for the slots. Remember to be in Teamspeak! ts.straya.life Join paramedic lobby to be dragged Thanks to @Hope, and @iamjack All announcements that pub-slots will need to know will be added below; Combat Zones Combat Zones are a medics worse enemy when responding to a downed person. Respect your life like it matters, even though its just a game if you see a gun get out a there. The absolute worst thing to happen is that a medic gets caught in the crossfire and more medics have to respond to you. If there is police on the scene when you arrive ask them if they have the scene under control if they don't leave them for a minute and come back. REMEMBER! You are only allowed to go in two minutes after you have heard the last gunshot if you are not certain or have arrived late ask a medic near the scene if it is still hostile before going in! If there is still guns shots at the scene retreat to no less than 200 meters from the scene. If there is a hill nearby try to drive up it to get a vantage point to overlook the scene fully. If a player or police request that that player should not be revived, retreat to 200 meters and overlook the scene till they leave, then go in to revive. Added in a new rule: If a player is revived and continues with the active scene notify them of this rule, if they continue to warn them again. If the persist take it to help desk. Items you need 2x Defibrillator To revive an unconscious person by pressing window key while looking at the body of the victim One to be stored in your vehicle in case you die to crossfire and one is stolen from your bag. 10x Lollipops Used as EMS food Brings food from 0 back to 100. To consume press Y, click on the item, then press 'consume' 10x Water Bottles Used as drink Brings water from 0 back to 100. To consume press Y, click on the item, then press 'consume' 5x Toolkit Try and have quite a few of these as car crashes are common within altis. Store in your vehicle, press T, then click the item, then press the 'take' button. Press windows key on the vehicle, then repair 1x Full fuel canister For the odd time, someone runs out of fuel Store in vehicle 3x Panadol Give people with headaches Refer to higher-ups if other medication if required Heals 25 HP (Use it after first aid kit, as panadol heals 25 HP: 75+25 = 100) Press Y key and select the person you would like to use/give it to. Panadol can also be used on yourself Do not give painkiller just because someone asks for it. And only 1 painkiller can be given to 1 player every roleplay situation. 10x First Aid Kits Heal a player up to 75 HP Heals 75 HP (Use it before panadol, as the first aid kit heals 75 HP: 75+25 = 100) Use your scroll wheel on your mouse to bring up the option 1x Night vision Good for night operations (duh) 1x Map Press M to access 1x GPS EMS Uniform If the uniform shows up as "ranger" press I and drag it out and back in to fix this graphical issue OPTIONAL ITEMS 1x Cap The area you're allowed in PUB-SLOTS are only allowed to drive and respond to downed players within Sydney Limits, the only exception to this is when you gain permission from an ICP+ (Intensive Care Paramedic) or you are the only medic online at the time. Sydney Limits in the big purple line around the city of Sydney. Most accidents happen within these limits so usually, you won't be short of action. If you are the only medic online and the following occur Robbing of a bank Airdrop event Drug shipment event KOS Island death You may not respond unless the bank has been cleared by the cops and it is now declared safe by a high ranking officer. For both the events, you may not respond until the event has self-destructed (airdrop) or the drug shipment has left. You may not under any circumstances respond to a downed player on KOS island as crossfire here is HIGHLY likely. If a player dies within a rebel area All areas with a red dot (weed fields etc) Rebal Outposts Cartel Hideouts You may respond one you have cleared the area, it is not a combat zone and you feel it is safe to do so. You may respond to an incident within PD (Police Department - Blue gridded area on your map) If you have asked permission from the highest ranking police officer on the scene. Ranks of command While playing as a medic you should always respect those who are higher ranked than you. They have the experience and often expertise to help, if you are controlled don't fret to ask them! The rank structure follows these colors, colors are displayed in uniforms blue - green - red Pub-Slot Paramedic Not trained Junior Paramedic Trained and tested Paramedic Added to rank from Pub-Slot paramedic Paramedic First EMS rank First Whitelist rank Must be promoted to this rank from Junior Paramedic Senior Paramedic Second EMS rank Must be promoted to this rank from Paramedic Intensive Care Paramedic Third EMS rank Must be promoted to this rank from Senior Paramedic Special Response Paramedic Forth EMS rank Must be promoted to this rank from Intensive Care Paramedic Duty Control Officer Fifth EMS rank May be found in a pink suit Must be promoted to this rank from Special Response Paramedic Assistant Command Officer Sixth EMS rank May be found in a pink suit Must be promoted to this rank from Duty Control Officer Chief Executive Officer Highest ranking EMS May be found in a pink suit Must be promoted to this rank from Assistant Command Officer Vehicles The only vehicle a PUB-SLOT can use is the off-roader, a sturdy vehicle that does what the name implies very well. Refer to "Hotkeys" below to see the common hotkeys used with this vehicle. Refer to "Areas you are allowed in" before using this vehicle. Try and park it as best you can, don't be the one to cause another accident. If you are driving to Sydney hospital use the designated parks out front or take the vehicle behind the hospital, it looks shit if you park your vehicle halfway up the bushes. Here are some examples of how the vehicle should be used. Car Crash/ Vehicle Accident If you respond to a car crash use your vehicle as best you can to warn other motorists that there is an accident ahead, you can also use it as a barrier to protect yourself if another accident occurs. Use the beacons but try turn off the sirens as they are incredibly loud. Shotting/ Robbery Make sure there is no combat zone still occurring and approach with caution, use sirens if necessary to warn the robbers you are EMS, not the police. Be very wary and back off if guns are drawn or shots are fired. Speed Limits The speed limits are 60km/h Inside city limits of Sydney 30km/h Inside Sydney Market/ Outside Sydney Hosptial The only time a medic may drive faster than the assigned speed limit of 60km/h is in the case of an emergency that you are responding to. In which emergency lights and sirens must be used. Hotkeys U Locks your vehicle, remember to lock your vehicle every time you get in and out to avoid it being stolen. Shift+F Turns on your sirens LeftCtrl+F Yelps your sirens Shift+L Turns on your becons O Opens the boom gate at the back of the hospital Windows Key When reviving a player When repairing/ flipping a car Sitting on objects Scroll wheel Lets you turn on your beckons Useful Links APS Rules and Regulations EMS Discord EMS Database Let me know if I have missed anything, will be adding to this guide as time goes on Last update 3/08/2018
