Hey guys,

A big part of any role-play server is the jobs that are available to civilians. I would love to get the communities input / suggestions on what we should do when it comes to job ideas. I would like to have a mix of legal and illegal jobs, it will expand the role-play horizon and cater to both legal and illegal role-players. So, if you have any ideas or suggestions we would love to hear from you!

I mean I would honestly limit script jobs to a minimum. While I understand some jobs are actually important for the server economy to function properly, I always felt script jobs made zero sense. Nobody with a trucker job is RPing their character being a trucker. It's just a weird way to make money and then buy a house your character couldn't afford ICly. And if you actually want to RP a trucker I'm sure joining or starting an actual IC company and RPing with likeminded players is more fun.

What I would like to see is the script giving everyone the option to do things e.g brew alcohol or deliver components to businesses etc. but without providing vehicles or having to '/acceptjob' somewhere.

I'm on the same side, I also hope to see a good Company System other than a job system. Players should be able to create companies and purchase licenses for companies which would allow them to do different stuff, such as, security, towing cars, trucking, private medical transport/company/clinic etc, imagination is the limit

Logistics, Shop Keeper, Weapons Manufacturer, Weapons Dealer, Mechanic, Taxi, Security, Horticulturist, Private detective, Legal Representative, Icecream dealer, Chauffeur, Street Sweeper, Prostitute..the more the merrier, giving people the option to do anything they desire will attract loads of people.

Hello everyone,

Starting from today, I will be collecting the various ideas and suggestions posted in this thread in-order to finalize the necessary script-related work for "jobs" that will be offered through the script and not through peer to peer interaction.

The results, once clarified, evaluated, and reviewed will be announced so to allow you to prepare for the launch. Feel free to keep posting your suggestions on what should be scripted jobs and we will happily review them.

Best regards.

Revolving around roleplay jobs would be the best bet. Something interesting would be having jobs rely on one another. An example of jobs relying on one another is you have miners who mine ores, couriers who transport the ores, weapon factories that produce weapons for ammu-nations, and ammu-nations that sell to consumers. Mining, delivering, and weapon factories can all be company player-owned introducing working-class roleplay. Something that always tends to happen is what @Matt[Y] said, you have people who've been cashing in checks and probably done countless hours on trucking and roleplay wealthy with a house and two cars. Unless the economy is being roleplayed as an amazing booming economy, I don't think that should be available without some roleplay in the mix (eg., working at a popular night club). Guess what I'm trying to say is that roleplaying should outweigh the profit you make from script jobs (unless they're roleplayed through companies and work unions).

It would be amazing to actually see faction related jobs, taking for an example a Legal dealership faction where users could practically apply for a position.

I'd love to see jobs incorporated into the role play. Similar to LS:RP's system whereby the trucking job supplies businesses for goods, being able to roleplay whilst earning money is vital to make sure that jobs and careers don't become a background process to when other players aren't online.
