    Suggestion Title:
    Alias confirmation or Removing alias.


    Suggestion Category:
    Roleplay Server


    Suggestion Sub-Category:
    Script Alias


    Suggestion:
    So basically i would like to see a system that a person who is getting Aliased by another person lets say on the street would have to confirm that they allow being aliased. Because at the moment people are Aliasing other people all the time as "Cop1,Cop2 or Kill1 and so on". And I'm basing this from the idea that this is VoiceRP so we can always recognize someones voice or remember how somebody looks or even what cars he drives. Because at the moment a lot of people just Powergame someones name who is in the car and just follow him even though they didn't see there face or anything they just see an alias above their head. This would make the server more immersive and it would make it a bit harder for people to identify who is who and would make it way more realistic.

    So the basic idea of it would be: If i alias someone a bar should pop up for the guy i'm aliasing that he could confirm it. If it's not confirmed i just have to memorize how he looks and how he sounds.

    Also, a possible solution if reports would be a problem could be having a timestamp running somewhere that staff could find out who the person was at a specific time with specific id like 1 2 3 or 4.
    If we would remove alias all together.

    I dislike this idea. Nicknaming someone as they please should be given with greater freedom without consent of the other person

    I like the idea of just aliasing someone nicknames etc. I've called people nicknames and I don't want to be awkward and meet them later on and be like "who are you again?"

    But the removing of alias is a good option, although you can easily alias someone as "stranger" if you wish to forget their name.

    Agree with remove lot of ppl metagaming you can actually see it on report videos too :D When they tagging someone OOCLY....

    It should be double sided like friend request... When they gonna accept that real names will reveal...

    I totally agree with the full removal and just have ids for the admins and reports. As it's the most common thing to be powergamed and meta its so hard to prove, by removing it you take the chance of it ever happening. Plus adds to more immersion as you have to actually remember people by voice clothes car etc an not just save gangs or police like andy said as cop1 bratva2 savage3 etc... as half of my members dont wanna play anymore due to all this forums war and pg and Meta shit it's just turning into eclipse again too much toxicity... my guys are just here to have fun and rp we have never evan robbed anyone ig lol...

    You could do it like so. You would ask for consent of whoever you are trying to name, to alias them. If they accept you can nickname them as you please.

    Should just add words that cant be added, like 'Cop' & 'kill' for example should not allow you to use those words in an alias.

    In my opinion, the whole alias and Stranger ID system should be scrapped.

    Well we could get a system with a timestamp and short IDs just to track down rule-breakers. Or get a system that was already suggested before to actually have like a friendlist.

    My Thoughts Exactly Joenly.... I like being able to listen in on a conversation and remember a name with out them even knowing I am there... To me that is the essence of immersion.... you never know who is listening!

    Well then remember how they look or how they sound. Because i dont think you should be remember someone in general over walls or corners without seeing them

    yeah someone tries to hide in a bush or behind a wall and listen you really think you gonna carry on a conversation knowing OOCly that there is a enemy or police officer right there it just wont happen... Plus how is that immersion knowing who your listening to from a distance because of their name tag if your a good detective or listener you should remember who they are by *listening* not some floating text above their head I feel sorry for the people irl here who obviously forget shit loads of peoples names or have alzheimer's

    I agree, if you are in a building or in a car the tag should not be visible.... but face to face up close I like being able to have that visible reminder, because people change their look way to often in the game.... I have almost everyone I come into contact with Aliased.... most are just first names but if I had to try to remember based on there appearance there is no way.... Real life you can change your clothes but your face is a defining factor... in this game the faces are generic and play very little in your ability to identify someone. I agree that META is a problem on this server and there are those who shirtlessly use it constantly to manipulate situations. However those of us who are not children and have some maturity should not be at a disadvantage because some people can't police themselves.

    I will say this, even if you had to enter a menu and be up close to someone to do it, I would support that... Just like being at you vehicle in order to lock it...

    But if I am face to face with some one having a conversation I should be able to do this with out breaking immersion

    The /me /do and lock and unlock shit needs to all be taken down to like 1-3 m as i can see people unlocking property from around the block and yes name tags if they do stay should only be visible if an object isn't between you and that person plus they should also only be visible from a certain distance anyway.
