why does the support title have to be part of anything? i would have said what i said no matter what. everyone bitches about wanting new stuff and when new stuff is put in they find anything and everything to still bitch about. calling me out because of a title is completely irrelevant. 

The idea of an oil cartel rig was suggested by a career cop LT who hasn't even been playing for a year. @Shepurd, someone who actually knows what a cartel is, argued against the idea with solid points that anyone should be able to comprehend. Somehow this makes it into the game still. Something being new doesn't make it good. The new bank is shit and every prison after the 'good' Pyrgos prison was a downgrade. 

I'm calling you out because you're defending something that is blatantly stupid whilst having a position that requires you to suck staff dick.

Yeah maybe it's fine if one dumbass is capping the cartel. But if it's the same oil rig you don't have many places to land. If you think about the other cartels, would you ever drop in an orca that close to the cap?

One scubba dude and nobody is getting close the those ladders. Now if you have to bring your own scubba dude to deal with one it's just the same problem people had with the cartel before. Someone is going to have to drop the rebel load out and get a scubba set, which takes a decent time.

You can hot drop people in tons of spots on that rig with relatively decent cover.  Also, if one scuba dude can cover 100's of square meters and multiple ladder spots, then he's better than should be expected.  

The rig is 400m from land and 850m from a spot where you can buy a rebreather and a sub.  Again, I think you guys will figure this out.  Also since it's money and not rubber, there should be plenty of incentive for gangs to want to hold the cartel.  If it's not for you, then that's fine.  Someone will want to hold it since it's likely to produce more money than drug or arms...

Drill Baby Drill

Altis has decided to open up the mainland to oil drilling.  There are marked areas where permits for drilling oil have been issued to all citizens of the island - provide you have the correct licensing.  For those of you just starting out on the island, you can grab a pickaxe and scrape the surface for what little oil you can find.  For those that are more established citizens several new vehicles for drilling oil have been delivered to the island.  Drilling with a vehicle will be faster than drilling by hand, but the vehicle will not be able to be moved until you retract the drill.  

Altis has also decided that the oil rig was too far offshore to be effectively used by it's citizens.  Much to the dismay of citizens with bayfront property, the oil rig has been moved into Kalithea Bay.  The governement was hoping to entice citizens to work on the oil rig more with this move, but unfortunately a criminal element has moved in instead.  Through a series of what can only be described as corruption worthy of current events in the west, a new breed of oil cartel has taken over the island.  Gone are the days when the oil cartel only cared about taking rubber from our citizens and they now instead demand a cut of the profits from everyone who is not a member that processes oil.  Further, from time to time they establish a stronghold on the oil rig as a display of their dominance.  
 

  • You can now drill for oil either by gathering (requires a pickaxe), or with new vehicles, by going to an oil field.  
  • In order to use the new vehicles to drill for oil, you must have an oil processing license.  
  • The new vehicles' trunks are made only for oil and oil accessories. Most items will not fit into them.
  • You can purchase an oil processing license in town or at the oil processors throughout the map.  
  • Unprocessed oil may be processed at an oil processor.  
  • Barrels of oil are still processed in the same location.  Look for "Oil Barrel Processing" on the map.  
  • The oil rig has been moved to be much closer to land.  
  • The oil rig will sometimes be the oil cartel.  
  • The oil cartel generates cash into the gang bank of the gang holding the cartel now instead of rubber.  
  • When your gang captures a cartel, that cartel may not be captured for 20 minutes now (up from 15).
  • Dive shop added to Kalithea Bay boat shop area and North Rebel base.
  • When someone goes on parole, any bounty hunters with that mission should stop tracking that target.
  • Lumber now sells for significantly more money.
  • Chopping a tree now only requires an axe to be in your virtual inventory
  • Lockpicking handcuffs should now properly appear on your scrollwheel
  • Additional optimizations and other miscellaneous tweaks.

Note:  The oil cartel can not be captured by players in the water.  You must be on at least the main level in order to capture the cartel.  If you are on a dock near the water, then you will not be able to capture the cartel.  

i suggested this like a year ago, maybe not how you got it thew now but atleast its "new" content.

@bamf Can we change the processor to another location or colour of the new place it makes it tricky to see 

I toyed with that, but given the system that changes marker colors it has to be the color of the other things that are alike.

Allow the trucks to gather oil or fuel both with different processors to give some variety.

Fuel trucks that are filled with fuel have unintentional consequences that we are not allowing at this time.

I’m saying this so the second you see one you don’t assume it has oil chance it could have the other like seeing a hemmit box.

I want to fuel truck kavala, make it happen. Also buff the price a bit of oil.

Profit from oil is between heroin and cocaine on a per hour basis.  The price is fine...

Edit:  To add to this a touch.  You used to be able to get 20 oil every 15 minutes, now you can get 12 oil in 1 minute (by gathering).  The price is going to be fine.  Again, even the admins thought the money was good (the gang admins at that).
