I agree with the above changes. I also have a few of my own I believe could be good.
Evidence Locker Change
Change Evidence event to where it’s not one location but instead at every HQ. Basically sort of like a gas station robbery in one of the rooms, if you complete the robbery a crate with all the seized shit spawns in for the taking.
This let’s all the boys come together in the cities to hold down the hq and kill cops like usual but actually be able to gain something from it too.
Put Kavala back on top of respawn screen
Obvious reason, it’s the superior city and deserves to be there.
Add another coke field
New players play in Kavala, that’s just how it be, so instead of then making shit money doing weed and leaving the server add a coke field and processor somewhere near Kavala. It’s not great money but not super shit either so it’ll be more reason for new players to stick around.
Increase weapon prices
6.5 and 7.62 rifles should cost a little bit more than they currently do, the money is inflated enough and it doesn’t help you can get a full load out for 20-25k. Full kit should be around 30-35k now.
This change would be mainly for the people like me who sit in cities full kit 24/7 popping off on everybody. Times were better when we were just rook and sdar banging but now money is too easy to get and we’re all rich a full kit is literally nothing of value to us anymore.
Now I know all the cartel warriors are sweating right now, don’t worry keep reading.
Increase cartel payouts
To counteract kits being more expensive, which is a change to prevent us city slickers with our full loadouts, the cartels should payout a larger amount so the people doing the cartels don’t feel a difference in the cost of kits.
Add some of the lower tier illegal weapons to gun shops
Add like the sting, protector, zubr, and aks74u to the gunshops, they can still be illegal or whatever and even cost more at the gunshops than they do at rebel outposts but it would give a bit more variety to the gunshops.

First Step - Fix the economy!! - 1. Make drug fields dynamic again [ meth lab, cocaine, heroin] just like before V2, so players\ gangs won’t have the ability to control the same area with their houses forever, and it will also make new experiences for the players.
2. Remove fields and money methods - Oyster field, Moonshine, weed seeds, drug runner ports, uranium, crypto and house electric bills.
3. nerf - shipwrecks.
4. prices - IFRIT [100K], Hunter [65k], Sui vest [120k] and Speed bombs [140k]
5. real estate - players can list their houses for 1.5 mill max.
6. wipe bank accounts [ community decision ]
Second Step - Revive the APD, because it’s dead.
1. Unblacklist everyone!!!! [give everyone a second chance]
2. Remove- Athira bank, Mental asylum and Federal evidence
3. Federal events timer – after finishing a federal event there’s should be a timer of 40-50 minutes until the next one.
4. Only a group of three or more players can start a federal event and they must have an illegal weapon on them. [ SDAR doesn’t count] - it will prevent trolls from starting a federal event for no reason.
Third Step - Rules change.
1. A player who was kidnapped by someone will not get kidnapped\downed by the same person\group\gang for 30 minutes [ doesn’t apply when he initiates\shoots them or has a bounty+ Cops] - ****you can still keep killing them****
2. drug dealer and wong's trader are not red zones.
Fourth step - RP additions and cartel changes.
1. Add a night club where players can spend their time dancing and singing.
2. house customization – let people customize their houses by adding a Walmart shop where they can buy furniture and place them in their houses.
3. Add cartel locations to the server for our current cartels and make them dynamic just like on domination.
Meth Lab [ 2nd]
Cocaine processing [2nd]
Cocaine Field [2nd]
Heroin processing [2nd]
Weed processing [replacing the currnet one]
Please give a honest feedback!!! @Mitch (IFRIT) @Patato @ObiWoki @mitch @Leady
Trioxide liked a post in a topic by bbgreg17 in ****House Raiding Policy****
From time to time it will be necessary and appropriate for the APD to conduct raids on homes in the Asylum Server. This document is meant to outline the proper way to perform these raids.
Note for civilians:
By giving keys to another, you deputize them to use your house. Because of this, their actions can lead to your house being raided, even if you are not online.
General policies related to both Barricaded Suspects and House Raids
If the Lieutenant+ (LT) uses the toggle lock function on a house, they must: Ensure a proper perimeter and clear all civilians from the immediate area. Have at least one officer guarding every exterior door to prevent any civilians from entering the premises. No officer below the rank of Lieutenant is permitted to enter the house or interact with the inventory. (Failure to comply with this will be considered unlawful home entry) If the LT does not use the toggle lock function and instead unlocks a door: One officer must guard any unlocked exterior door to prevent any civilians from entering the premises. Any officer may accompany the LT into the house with LT permission. In the event that the LT dies and can not be revived, all other officers must exit the house. If another LT is on scene they may take over the raid and officers may proceed. LTs may check the registration of a house for the owner or any additional key holders at any time.
An individual inside a locked house will be considered a barricaded suspect when:
He/she is actively wanted or needs to be charged Is wearing/holding illegal item(s) A civilian/officer/medic is held against their will inside the house. OR Suspects within the house have been downed or restrained and officers need to remove them from the house. The LT may not seize the house inventory.
The LT must:
Have proper initiation before breaching the house. Announced in direct chat that they will be entering the house. If a suspect has engaged in a firefight with APD and the suspect(s) within the house have been downed, they waive their right to surrender themselves to the LT. The LT may enter the house, restrain the suspects, and remove them from the premises. No other action may be taken by the LT. Upon restraining and removing all suspects from the house, the LT must relock any exterior doors they unlocked.
Actively Shooting Barricaded Suspects
An individual who is inside of a locked house and actively firing out may have their house raided and inventory seized. Suspects who have shot from within a house while officers are on scene are considered to be an active shooter even if they cease fire. Suspects who have stored illegal items in their house and choose to defend their property will not be considered actively shooting barricaded suspects. If an LT does not have the intention of seizing the house inventory they may proceed like a normal Barricaded Suspect. During the raid all officers are limited to 1 life. If they are killed and unable to be revived they may not respond back to the house to rejoin the raid. The LT must:
Inform the suspect of their intent to raid the house and seize the house inventory. Give the suspect a reasonable amount of time to surrender themself and their weapon/inventory instead of having their house seized. Note, there is no 5 minute timer for these situations. Should the suspect fail to surrender themself the LT may then proceed with the raid. The LT may then open doors and enter the premises in an attempt to gain control of the house. Once all suspects within the house are restrained the LT may seize the house. An LT should use the scroll wheel option when available. If an LT does choose to seize via the house inventory menu they must seize all illegal items. An LT may not drop the items on the ground and then seize them.
House Raiding Procedure
In order to raid a house and seize the contents, the LT must obtain sufficient probable cause.
Each LT is limited to one house raid (successful) per server restart.
Note, this limit only applies to a house raid and not to a barricaded suspect. Actively Shooting Barricaded Suspect raids also count. Should an LT come across an Actively Shooting Barricaded Suspect after already using their raid they may proceed as a normal barricaded suspect. A raid is considered successful when the inventory of the house has been seized. The amount of the seized items does not matter. During a house raid all officers are limited to 1 life. If they are killed and unable to be revived they may not respond back to the house to rejoin the raid. Sufficient Probable Cause
Sufficient probable cause includes:
Seeing a person or persons in an illegal collection or processing area, following them to the house in question and witnessing them behave in a manner indicative of unloading illegal cargo into the house. Seeing a highly wanted individual entering/exiting or inside a house which belongs to them. This person must be wanted for multiple manslaughter charges, bank robbery, escaping prison, or other high crimes. An individual wanted for small offenses such as hit and run, attempted auto theft, grand theft, aiding escape from custody, ect does not qualify. Seeing a person or persons who possess keys to the house with an illegal firearm or other illegal item, storing said illegal item inside of the house. An LT may only raid a house once per probable cause. If a raid fails, the LT must gain new probable cause to raid the house again. Probable cause must come from the current server cycle, and can not be old information. Houses change hands often, so LTs need to be sure they are raiding the correct house. The LT must have video of their probable cause and the raid. Failure to do so may result in administrative or APD disciplinary action being taken against them. This also allows administrative staff to review the raid ensuring it was proper and that compensation should not be given to the owner for lost items.
After the LT has obtained sufficient probable cause they may proceed with raiding the house.
The LT must contact the suspect observed interacting with the house and inform them of their intent to raid the house. The suspect has 5 minutes to surrender themselves to the LT. The suspect may respawn at the house to turn themselves in. If the suspect does not surrender the items and/or themself within 5 minutes, the LT may proceed with the house raid. Should the suspect surrender themselves, they may turnover the illegal items witnessed being placed into the house instead of the LT seizing the house. If the suspect does not surrender all items or instead wishes to defend their house (as is their right) the LT may then proceed with the house raid. The 5 minute timer starts upon contact, not the suspect showing up to, or beginning to defend their property. The LT may open doors after the 5 minute timer and enter the premises in an attempt to gain control of the house. LTs should always ensure they are still properly initiated on any and all civilians inside the property. Once all suspects within the house are restrained the LT may seize the house. An LT should use the scroll wheel option when available. If an LT does choose to seize via the house inventory menu they must seize all illegal items. An LT may not drop the items on the ground and then seize them.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact a Captain.

By how much?
Money making methods that involve large groups should be buffed.
Why 3? Why not add back money cap and convert cash into prestige?
Chill with what type of bans? Seems like a lot of long bans are for DPI and cheating.
What makes these federal events bad?
Why? It is one of the worst methods of making money on the server. It is exactly the money sink that you are asking for.

It is difficult to avoid the fact that our beloved ARMA3 server, Asylum, is dying.
The server has been struggling for some time now and I think that it is time now that we work together as a community to add some changes. As I have been told many times in the course of my military service, "one solider cannot change the battle but a team can always".
I propose something which I think many players will not like, but I have seen it work many times on other servers at different times.
Reset the server, and make it from the ground-up.
This will certainly be unpopular with the old players who own all the houses in the biggest cities and have 50 ifrits in there garage, but starting new will definitely bring new players to the server, also causing there to be a big rush to buy the houses and make money. It would be very crazy and could be a risky move, but I could think that everyone starting fresh may bring back people who have gotten tired of the server and also attract new players who are interested in the new opportunities.
I also propose that there is a heavier focus on RP implemented into the server. Right now the role-play aspects are very minimal and the RDM rates are high. Everytime I try and go anywhere it's just "bullet hell".
I have also seen other players say that maybe we change the map. I think that would be a good idea but also requires alot of work from the developers I imagine and could be very, very frustrating. That being said, a smaller and newer map could bring us all a bit closer to action and would improve the game-play. Also, new map = fun, lol.
That's all I have for now. Cheers
(Note: Sorry for poor grammar, not native english over here)

This is what I've been saying. The most profitable ways of making money should be cartels, meth, and scotch. Cartels for pvp gangs who wanna have fun, meth for big groups who wanna grind money, and scotch for people who wanna go mostly solo and still make money quickly. I feel like this was how the server was just a couple years ago. Since then, the devs have just been adding literally everything they can think of to the game and it has completely screwed the economy. The really hard money making methods should not be the least profitable. The most profitable money making methods should not be really easy. It's completely fucked. Fix it.
Trioxide liked a post in a topic by Bherky in Cartel Income
I miss how it used to be. Making money is a huge dynamic of the game and can definitely be enjoyable. I actually want to go an do runs sometimes but its not an efficient use of my time, there are way better options that I could choose.
In the past few weeks, anytime I wanted to make some money back I have been doing solo banks where all I am doing is aim training for 10 minutes and getting the equivalent of a box truck of meth or more.
I play one domination, and I make the same money I would have if I processed a house full of meth, that's nuts.
I am not blaming the server/developers since things can't go back to the way they were without a load of backlash, I'm just saying I miss the days of grinding meth early in the morning to fight during the day.
Trioxide liked a post in a topic by Bherky in Cartel Income
This is my viewpoint, and is mostly subjective.
The whole economy is pretty fucked. Fed. events and domination are the only money making source that is worth your time if you have a half decent team.
Cartels are dead at the moment and the idea of raising the money that you earn from cartels isn't a bad idea. The only problem I see with this is that the server will (and has) become a "pvp" server fewer and fewer people doing money runs. (excluding newer players and people with great houses).
The dynamic of the server has changed from what I have seen, changing from a "make money/do runs to fight/pvp" to a "fight/pvp to make money".
People have gotten used to being able to fight fed. events and domination to make their money that if we ever were to go back to how it was before when people ran drugs to buy their loadouts it would have a shitload of community backlash.
There have been adjustments from what I have seen to try and combat this (not sure this is 100% correct), like reducing the amount of gold bars in the fed. reserve, but even if there weren't any federal events, domination still rakes in an absolute shitload of money.
I'm not against making money off of domination at all, its great, it allows me to have fun and spend my money freely, but it removes the need for people to run money on the main server and that takes away a huge aspect of the server.

Maybe add a "said amount" to gang account after every 5 minutes or something. Sometimes taking cartels doesn't payout the price especially if you were to lose an Ifrit (Rn there's more of an incentive to take the ifrit and chop it over staying and taking the cartel)
Trioxide liked a post in a topic by Mithridates Of Pontus in Cartel Income
we have completely bogus cartel payouts, drugs getting nerfed made it worse, and now ifrits are twice the price they once were. I'm starting to see the negative effects of this imbalancing. full teams without any ifrits, especially lower skill gangs just get wiped. even when the skill ratio is a lot more balanced you're still at a significant disadvantage without ifrits.
