If you do one fed event, does that increase the security for the other ones or just the one in question?

Does the number of officers required reset after a certain amount of time during that same restart or will it reset back down after a soft/hard restart?

Why is weather being added at all? You do realize that everyone gets 40-50 FPS when ifrits / cops slam the fed event with smokes and on top of that rain at night or even during the day will decrease fps by 10-20 on top of that. There is a reason that it was removed back in the day.

Yeah this is in kavala when no one is around on the server, "You do realize that everyone gets 40-50 FPS when ifrits / cops slam the fed event with smokes and on top of that rain at night or even during the day will decrease fps by 10-20 on top of that"

You are sending a image from the stone age without actually showing real proof of what rain actually looks like now and how it impacts performance. It doesn't look like this shit show anymore and has had multiple revisions by bohemia over the state of rain to improve the exact things you are saying.

For now it stays till a restart, this is subject to change in the future though

You can pretty much only do one of these a restart since all the gold bars arent in there until a certain time in restart. I'd just raise the amount of cops that are needed to start it.

so do y'all not care about the mood of the game at all? You don't think occasional weather is better than it being sunny all day every day?

In the interest of appealing to people with lower to lower-middle end PC's I would recommend limiting the rain to time frames less then 45 minutes or so. I agree that it sometimes just makes the game look a little more interesting and can be a good change of pace. however, it still can hurt performance for those people with older PC's. it would make no difference to me and I'm sure with my new machine it would be a subtle difference if any. Just trying to be conscious of small changes with a large potential negative impact.

You literally screen capped yourself taking a steam screenshot which means you used external software to get this picture causing the game application to become temporarily idle, greatly increasing your fps. Not fooling anyone bud, get rid of the rain.

You get a cut taken while processing now iirc, just like drugs without the cartel.

So scotch requires an aging process. In order for me to keep it all, I have to capture wongs, go process, store my materials......wait 3 server restarts, go cap wongs AGAIN, add aging chemicals.....Bwahahhaaaa........then go sell hopefully before someone recaps it from me.

This could take 3 days to sell a single box truck and risk multiple load outs, orcas and ifrits to do so.

Nothing, no other money making process on the server has been taxed that hard before.

Honestly, if the devs just wanted to nuke scotch, just get rid of it.

We might have to check up on these DH guys every once in a while just to make sure they are still breathing.
