    So as the tittle says I think the Military Police should have something that distinguishes them from the regular soldiers. My father is a policeman in a special department in my country and he told me several times that using balaclavas in the regular basis is crucial for avoiding the jeoperdizing the Operation. Not only that but it inspires fear and authority over the criminals. I think this is an issue in game because there's an aura of insoburdination towards MP that is behond ridiculous.

    The following are some examples of the use of balaclavas in my fathers work and in other games to let you guys know how fucking amazing looking they are:

    policia-890x558.
    img_818x455$2016_10_10_23_36_57_569110. 878695903_preview_20170307114344_1.

    Right so these were to be handed out to the devout personel of the MP's to conceal Identities and inspire authority. They were not to be used by any other military personel unless given permission.

    PS: I know coding all of these as a script would be a pain in the ass but Dave and his dev crew are amazing in what they do so I think it could be pulled.

    While balaclavas would be a welcome addition on the server, I think it'd be silly to have them as a "uniform" item for MPs. In actual an actual military, more times than not, they're just regular looking soldiers who wear a badge.

    this isn't something necessarily that needs to be 'developed', it needs to be modelled. if i'm not mistaken clothing is basic to do but the head bodygroup needs to be there

    overall, though, i don't think this is important or needed at all. if your character's wearing a balaclava, feel free to put it in your description or donate and have custom headgear.

    If there's insubordination you kick em in the dick

    If you want balaclavas just get one because you do

    Just because that's the case, it doesn't make wearing balaclavas any more practical. Balaclavas generally have two main functions: either concealing the identity of the wearer (kinda' counterproductive to the mission of the Military Police), and providing warmth. Otherwise, they're uncomfortable, especially when you add on the fatigues, plate carrier, helmet, and other equipment.

    Let's not allow this thread to get too far off topic.
    Having a script item that actually accommodates the idea of Military Police would be a nice change.
    The helmet that Jimmy suggested makes much more sense for the setting and principle over the balaclavas in terms of realism and identification.
    This is a creative idea though, Papa! Thanks for suggesting it!

    I actually talked to @TankNut about this a couple of days back.

    Items currently work with bone-merging by attaching the model to the rig of a model. Balaclavas would be an actual model that just replaces the head instead of attaching to it, something which the script doesn't currently do. I really like balaclavas, especially if you could wear helmets, caps ect with them but its not currently within the scope of the server's possibilities because there isn't a system in place that can replace head models on the fly, only attach to them.

    can we do like a blue colored ball cap? I'll settle for that and Snuggles can write it in his bio that it's really a balaclava/ballcap combo.

    We can swap out the head entirely if we have to. It's just that if you want something like a new helmet or other head item that fits ontop your existing head then we need dave to apply it to every head model. Because adding another attachment in the same vein as the current torsos and exos would likely be too taxing performance/FPS wise

    while i think the whole idea of having a distinguishing MP apparel item i don't really think all of the effort that has to go into it is worth it

    definitely a cool idea and i don't think anybody doesn't want to have it in the server, just seems like a whole lotta effort

    pac is a bad idea

    it allows creativity yes but i also feel like the people who donated for models would feel pretty gimped, or pac3 would be put behind a paywall, and if it wasn't, then the model quality would differ significantly.

    as much as i like pac and all it lags servers pretty bad depending on people's pacs and that's not very enjoyable, the quality difference is pretty severe (as stated previously) and that always makes shit look super wonky to me

    their post was probably a joke anyways but here i am
