Christmas Update Review
I was bored earlier and curious about the new SSRP Update so I decided to hop on the server and share my experience with the new features.
I really like the new gang store they added to the server. I think these features come at a relatively fair price, and while not all of them are likely to be used I think some of them have their use cases and are interesting.
The ZARP Missions feature is just your average daily and weekly missions you'd see in plenty of other games. I don't really like that a lot of these are just sort of "waste your time" tasks that you wouldn't do otherwise. Example: Heal 25 players, Arrest 20 players, Mine 2500 stones. This is one of many new features I feel are held back by the current and recent low player count on the server. Healing 25 players and arresting 20 players is not realistic for a server that gets 5 players on average, and most of those being alts. This isn't meant as a shot or diss, just reality.
This was the first thing I noticed when I joined the server. I'm glad its 10 instead of 5 now, but to be honest I really don't think this is what the server needed now. Maybe years ago, but it's too little to late in my opinion.
New Update, new cases. I can't really comment on any of the new items,
New Character Upgrades
Character upgrades are also being held back by this update because of the player count as well. Launching a nuke is nearly impossible because there's simply not enough people online. I'd really like to see these player count limits on gameplay aspects removed from the server, as I believe they're simply unrealistic and unhealthy for what the server is now. Melee boost could be interesting, seems more memey than anything though.
I'm interested in what your guys' thoughts are on the changes and update in general. I'm not really an active player at all, just wanted to stop by and give my two cents on it all.
