I completely understand for keeping 3PP an option for the ability to look at your character. I love 3PP when I'm focused on PVP so I can peak corners accurately. But I've been in a couple situations where they let 3PP dictate how they RP. For instance, If I'm holding a door and I'm aiming down sights, you should not RP that you see me unless your character has peaked. I get why people want to have 3PP as an option, but its not ideal overall.
I never said that there shouldn't be any PVP, there is always going to be consequences for your actions. I personally don't like the idea of there being montages related to deaths, I don't know, I might take it more seriously because I know if I get killed its a PK.
The whitelist should be way harder than it is currently, I've already ran into a lot of people who don't know how to RP whatsoever, giving badRP.
When there is montages for kills in an RP server you know something is wrong.
*Shifting through the many items in my bag, I finally find the radio I barely use. Clearing my voice before sending a broadcast.*
"Hello survivors of the outbreak, I broadcast myself as a way to express my needs. I need shelter... I ended up finding a place to call home but It's not enough.
*The stranger lets out a deep sigh before continuing*
"Many of you have already meet me, you can acknowledge me as the "Pastor". I have two types of skills that I would like to offer, superb marksmanship and the ability to help other people medically. One skill that is not used as often is being a ground mechanic. If you think you have work for me, contact me. I'll be at Novaya Petro..."
*The radio cuts off before the last word is fully said*
* Right before Henry goes to sleep, he cuts on his radio and hears a clear English accent cut through the frequency *
*Your radio sparks to life as you hear a somewhat crazy English guy talking on the line*
" I wish you luck stranger, there are still people to be trusted in this country, but I do agree, be careful. "

I am one of the new members that took what he said in the original post to heart because this is how I play. With sympathy for my character. I know from experience for the Military that picking up a weapon and shooting someone with it takes a toll on the human brain. I think if people played for the emotion of the roleplay it would be so much better, because lets face it, a lot of the players here would probably freak out in real life if they either shot someone or robbed them.
Newer people does not mean that there is a lower standard, I have been playing in the "serious" roleplaying scene for a while, you might have bumped into me a couple times who knows. But the point of it, your player interactions are always going to be different, maybe there is a reason why your hostile RP has been more decent than others?
