Luke    485

The following changes have been made over the past few weeks by Huntah and I. This one is a bit short, but the new police changes are fairly important so need to be announced. If there are any issues with any of the following changes and you feel as though it's a bug, please bug report it and it will be addressed.

New

  • Police Patrol Officers
    • Playable only through police quest
    • 4 playable regular slots (+2 admin slots)
    • Requires 'Patrol' to be in your name
    • Same abilities as old Highway Patrol Squad (excluding patrol Hunter and fuel darting from it)
  • Police Drone Squad
    • 5 squad member limit (3 Can be online at once)
    • Ability to retrieve multiple types of drones 
    • Surveillance truck with multiple cameras of different locations
    • Heli-Drone has missiles enabled during martial law to combat rebel air vehicles
    • Because drone squad are UAV instead of Combat Lifesavers, they can not use the normal police heal system. Because of this their police kit comes with 20 medikits

Changes

  • Vehicle retrieval and storing is now much faster and not as affected by server lag anymore
  • Security now have to take actual bags from the bank instead of money, and trade them for payment at their HQ
  • Security now drop items when they are killed (including money bags)
  • The colour of whitelist and public cops now differ in shade
  • Removed the unneeded 4 frame glitch information from the help menu
  • Changed police trainer to slots

Fixes

  • Being killed while connected to a Drone now disconnects you so it can be used by other cops
  • Impounded vehicles now properly show up back in your garage
  • Fixed a bug where mechanics were not showing to others as mechanics
  • Like 5
  • Thanks 2

This will be fun to see hahaha

Also do we have to wait till next squad round to be able to apply for Drone squad?

Like Frank said I can't wait to see these new helicopter drones in action with missiles and all. And also great job to all the server staff on bringing us, yet again, another kick-ass change log.

Definitely looking forward to the new police squad interesting to see how people combat these during martial law.

May I make a suggestion though? Would it be possible to have a Rebel way to possibly hack one of these drones if its stolen so that it can be used if picklocked?

Other then that keep up the great work guys!

Some editions/Fixes since last night..

* You can now lockpick vehicles even if they have super security, however you can not enter a vehicle that has super security unless you are the vehicle owner or have been given the keys.

This means you can now lighter and steal the inventory out of vehicles with super security, you just can't drive/fly it to a chopshop.

* You can no longer give keys out to a vehicle that you have lockpicked, you can only give out keys of a vehicle that you either actually own, or that you have been given the keys to.

* To load a vehicle onto a truck, you must now have the vehicles keys on your key ring (Locking picking will work)

* 4 Cameras removed from the recon squads truck, for a total of 8 (Arma only allows 8 pip images)

* Shielded Stomper added for recon squad, this is a stomper UGV with a concrete wall attached to the front of it, to give police cover on the move.

* Fixed a bug where patrol officers could not retrieve building items from their vehicles

 

Just to briefly explain the super security change again....

Vehicles with super security can now be lockpicked just like any other vehicle, however people who don't legitimately have the keys can not enter the vehicle. This change was added for realism, locking the trunk seemed silly and over powered. Super security will still however make your vehicle much harder to chop because people still wont be-able to just simply jump into it and drive/fly to a chop shop. They will instead need to air lift it (If possible) or carry it on the back of a truck.

Think about it, if we could give out keys to lock picked vehicles, that could be exploited for super sec vehicles, and people would be able to drive them. Hats off to whoever came up with this idea that prevents a future exploit.

When the squad apps get done, till then it's just a few people testing and informing us of issues.
