    Zelyth got a reaction from broaus in ELS in GTA V?   
    Hello everyone,
    something crossed my mind today. Taking into consideration that there will most likely be police vehicle mods for GTA V PC, probably from many people a part of this community, there will likely be demand for a lighting system other than the default one (granted, it is FAR better than the default GTA IV lighting system) but my question is, how do you think it will be integrated? I don't think that an ELS type mod for GTA V would use the same mechanic as the GTA IV ELS (turning extras on and off and making them bright to simulate police light effects in patterns) but it may rather utilize the existing mechanic and simply change some of the properties to make them brighter and the like and also enable the use of takedowns and traffic advisors. Then, similar to ELS, some panel to change patterns around so that it isn't the way it is now where it changes every 3 or so seconds. Even more brilliant is that there are mechanics already in game for LED lights AND rotary lightbars! This is all presuming that the mechanic even works in such a way that makes it manipulable.
     
    Yes, I know that a GTA V ELS type mod is far in the future, but it just crossed my mind.
     
    How do y'all think a GTA V ELS would work? Is it even necessary, or are you pleased enough by the default mechanic?

    ​How does making a website improve their police mod? That really makes no sense at all.
    So far, they released a skin changer, a bodyguard script and a vehicle spawner, and they have one callout of a shootout between 2 people that is almost always over by the time you get there, and blips don't even disappear upon those people being killed.
    Might as well give up on LSPDFR now and turn all development over to them.
    But I'm probably biased because I believe it's an immature move to steal another groups name and try to trademark it in an attempt to get name recognition.

    You seem to have the wrong idea about how mods work. Each mod make your game more unstable. You should try to minimize the use of modifications.
    My personal recommendation is seeing if you can live with the stock vehicles, the GTA IV engine doesn't deal with modified vehicles too well, especially not ones which have a very high polygon count.

    Be lucky enough to have somebody give EVI's to you. I've seen some other Valor's floating around, although they were a bit lack luster. However, that would be fine for someone just starting off such as yourself. You could also make one, as PS3Gameplays suggested.
     
    After you've got some stuff released, and can prove you're up to bat for the modding scene, someone will be willing to give you theirs. You'll probably have to map it yourself, though.

    Zelyth got a reaction from MichaelV in Should we rebuild the Empire State Building?   
    Why on Earth would they rebuild WTC as the exact same? I think that's a dishonor to all those who died as result of 9/11, and that's just a lot of money for the rebuilding of two towers that were knocked down by terrorists - with the exact same appearance. I'm glad they did something unique with the new WTC, and they also dedicated quite a lot of land to it's memorial. Also, responding to the last part of the quote above, there were already multiple WTC buildings before 9/11. I believe only 3 were destroyed and another seriously damaged, so the construction of new buildings was totally fine. Also, I'm sure that they didn't just build them for the shits and giggles, saying that the city didn't need them simply because they didn't dedicate anything to the skyline is absurd.
     
    Also, methinks it's worth mentioning that the statement "the new WTC could easily be knocked down just the same" is quite invalid. If you recall, airport security was pretty lax before 9/11, and the chances of three terrorists getting through airport security with weapons is near impossible. Even if they did get through security, they'd be shot down well before they even got near the New York skyline.

    Whoa whoa whoa. You just ignored almost everything that has been said before. Who said anything about prostitutes being beaten for money? And, further more, forced prostitution and willing prostitution are totally different things. Forced is when they are made to be addicted to drugs and forced by a pimp to sell their bodies on the street so that they can satisfy their addiction. Willing prostitutes are usually normal people, sometimes without pimps, sometimes aren't addicted to drugs, and generally have "standards". The kind of legalized prostitution we're talking about is in regulated brothels with people who are STD tested, condoms are provided, and nobody is forced to do anything.
     
    Prostitutes aren't beaten up by customers, that's a totally null point. Nobody provides a "pay me to beat me up" service. Maybe your idea of sex and physical abuse are skewed.
     
    However, I'm totally against pimping and forced prostitution and street prostitution, because they aren't regulated at all, there's health risks, and it's usually quite dirty.

    Back to the subject of morals - some people don't see sex as a beautiful thing. They see it as pure pleasure. That's it. The argument of "sex is a beautiful thing that should only be between two partners in love" really isn't a good excuse. If you want to know the reason why I am in support of a regulated, legal prostitution service, it's because it makes it safer for the people who don't share that opinion on sex. If prostitution remains illegal and unregulated, people will be put at risk for STD's, and the market for forced street prostitution will remain wayyy up, making it so that pimps actively look for young girls to abduct, force drugs into, and put on the street to sell their bodies. Fuck that shit. Offer a safe, regulated place for women to work and make some money, and for guys to have another option as opposed to using an STD ridden street hooker.

    You Didn't read any of the other Responses did you.. I Posted Reports from the DoJ about how ILLEGAL prostitution Covers 48% of human trafficking, and if Prostitution was made legal it would cut most of that Off, And also its been shown multiple times that with Government oversights and Weekly/Monthly Checkups Coupled with Mandatory Condom Use, the Spread of STD's would Decline in Prostitution.. Please Scroll up if you want elaboration.

    I think you have a faulty definition of "prostitution", if your definition requires someone to be kidnapped, drugged, and forced to work. The whole point of legal prostitution is that people involved think the money is worth it. People work in coal mines, in spite of the fact that it dramatically shortens your life expectancy, because the money is worth it. It may defy all logic to you that someone might decide to go to work in a brothel where they'll be paid to have sex, but it's disingenuous to say that what people would be willingly doing is "forced on the sidewalk by some pimp." In fact, a legal prostitute is much *less* likely to be subject to extremely degrading conditions or forced to work, because they can always go to the police if they're the victim of a crime.

    Your analogy is seriously flawed. With assault, an argument that paying someone to assault them is illegal would rest on the idea that consent for money isn't enough to justify the assault (i.e. "we don't want rich people able to hire poor people and punch them"). With sex, that means prostitution would be considered a variant of rape. There's a funny thing about rape: Being raped isn't a crime. If you're going with the assault analogy, prostitutes are victims and have done absolutely nothing wrong (unless you really want to argue that they're an accomplice to their own rape).

    I am fine with legalizing regulated prostitution, and I am against legalizing street prostitution, pimps, human trafficking, etc etc. People can do whatever the hell they want with their bodies, it doesn't affect me at all. I agree with the argument of not wanting to see two people going at it in a car in an alleyway. That's wrong even if the two people are married. The reason I find it absurd to compare this to the legalization of rape or child pornography is because prostitution is a victim-less crime unless one or both of the persons involved have STD's, which would be solved by having such activities regulated by STD checks, condom use, and private areas for the activity to occur which would not disturb anyone else. Police should be able to focus on pimping, human trafficking and drug use. I even think that prostitutes who are being forced or controlled by pimps should be given more support if picked up off the street. I only see benefit from the legalization of regulated prostitution. Just like if Marijuana is legal in your state/wherever you live, you don't have to smoke marijuana. Nobody is forcing you to. You can go about your day totally unaffected by the man smoking in his house. However, my own counter argument to that is that I dislike when people smoke on the street, however, I already solved the prostitution equivalent of that issue above.
     
    Regarding morals or religion, or whatever - sure, to you, sex may be a romantic, passionate thing between you and your lover, that's all fine and dandy. Nobody is saying that you have to abandon those morals by going out and buying prostitution services. You can share your love with someone else however you wish, however, other people may not share your morals/religion, and you shouldn't prohibit them from doing something that *would be* totally safe and private just because you don't like it. That's like me saying, "I don't like people who smoke cigarettes, it's against my morals. And some other people share those morals. Let's make it illegal!" but my opinion is my own, and just because I don't like smoking doesn't mean I should prohibit everyone else from smoking. It's their lungs, it's your body. Religion, personal morals and opinion should never be the basis of law.
     
    Anyways. I'm on board with allowing regulated prostitution, and continue fighting unsafe, non-private street prostitution, human trafficking, pimping and drug use.
