    The governments in this universe have actual pure intentions, so once they sent up the first rocket and realized Earth is flat, they returned and informed the people of the world responsibly.

    I'd fill the other 50 but it's sorta ridiculous if it's still gonna be absent since it's one of the default HL2 models, we use the rest of them after all. Still don't know why it was pulled from TRP.

    Bikes are still vehicles, whether they're powered by a motor or by pedal. While there's numerous reasons why most characters shouldn't have cars in the city without even getting into the more restrictive laws, I can see a justification for someone like a courier having a bike or a moped. But, we don't want everyone zipping around on bicycles like it's Amsterdam, for the same reason we want to limit cars in a cramped urban setting. If you absolutely need it for your character, I suppose you can ask. Otherwise just take the subway like every other schmuck.

    the amount of people who drive in new york from 5pm to 6pm probably outnumber the amount of people living in your hometown of swampville, new jersey tbh

    thats just a product of ratios. there are more people living in SoHo and the meatpacking district than most of North Jersey so of course more people are driving

    Will there be Dsit? It was really nifty for making simple vehicles like wheelchairs and bicycles without auths and also just for sitting places without making a chair nocollided and invisible and putting it where you want to sit.

    Also stream radios? I think they're a great tool and I feel like sound is such a neglected part of scene building compared to visuals. The music at a bar or campfire or the ambient noise in a room really sets the mood for me.

    Well I do want to create a char who is a bike courier. I have had this char made up for a month now and plan to stick to it. So how would I go about asking for a bike? I will role play the shit of having it locked up and carrying it around even, and won’t zoom around running into people. I will even rp having permits for it, if I need to.

    Most female characters on HL2RP seemed to get away with it just fine on their own.

    I can't remember if we came to a definitive answer on zombie media.

    What's it like? Does NOTHING exist that depicts zombies, is it just less popular, is it portrayed differently than in real life? What's going on with it?

    i cant find the post for the life of me but essentially zombie media doesnt exist and then bloo expanded on it saying that night of the living dead was a total failure in this universe and anyone who likes it is a weeaboo-tier outcast.

    In regards to the spread of 'violence' under the guise of the entire drug craze, would there slowly be news seeping in of other parts of the country or other parts of the world equally suffering of an increase in violent cases and all that? Not just like official news but also just online talk and all that.

    Contrarily I feel like news sources would make the connection first, before there's even substantial evidence of a connection, because that's what news sources do. The first couple of anecdotes would probably be enough to have Christian newspapers connecting the dots for a shocking headline: drug epidemic turns people into beasts worldwide!

    There's been a fair bit of federal cover up so far but it is getting to the point where it's all over the States now, we'll be exploring that and making an issue of it starting from today.

    george romero dies of a fatal car crash before making his first zombie film, night of the living dead. the zombie idea is never brought about as a major piece of media and never emerges as a cultural phenomenon.

    the collapse of yugoslavia can be attributed to the collapse of the soviet union, and since the soviet union is still active in zrp, it can be assumed that yugoslavia still exists.
