Detailed CCA and Citizen Uniforms

Post by Cinere on Wed Feb 12, 2014 11:55 pm

Obviously, detail in RP is helpful and adds to the experience. Detail is the difference between:

/me walks to the nexus

and

/me walks to the nexus at a brisk pace, gripping the pommel of his stun-stick in his right hand, his left hand stationary by his side.

Sure, both of these actions accomplish the same thing, they get to the nexus. But which one is more interfere-able? Its a lot more awkward to start an RP about someone walking, and say, "Hey why you have to go to the nexus mistor CCA mang" then it is for citizens to notice the detail and make subtle actions of their own.
Personally, I consider CCA units to require a higher level of detail in their roleplay. Sure, you could just do your job silently and patrol, and then arrest people for running around. Or, you could add detail. It can't really be a rule for the CCA to have to have a certain number of words, etc. But, OOCly, we can give them more to talk about.

To start off, obviously CCA units need to add more detail, but by improving the description of their uniforms for them will help. Just saying they have a Kevlar vest is boring, but describing the items in which they are ICly and OOCly given as a unit can add to the experience. For example:

1 Kevlar Vest
1 Pair of Black Boots
1 9mm Pistol
1 Stunstick
1 Data-pad
1 Patrol Pants/Jacket

Vs.

Heres a little help en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulletproof_vest
1 Type IIA Black Kevlar Vest with 2 Inch Collar, Covering Chest and Upper Torso, 2 Side Pockets
1 Pair of Black Vulcanized Rubber Boots, Composite Toed
1 USP Match 9×19mm Parabellum with 20 Round Clip and Tritium Sights
1 250 -500V 100mA, Adjustable Voltage stun-baton with rubber grip, 7 Inches.
1 Directly Uplinked CCA Data-pad
1 Grey Nylon Patrol Jacket, Long-Sleeved,
1 Pair of Dark Grey patrol pants, 4 pockets.
Etc.

I agree but the problem is that the /chardesc is not very long...

This is my Ghost-EpU's desc: Ghost Tatical Uniform| Ghost EpU Badge | 2 Union Dove Pins | Oculus 3.0 (Glowing Red) | Tall | Strong Build.

I don't have much to add about his boots and such.

I agree when it comes to description within /me's.

Its much better to have one or two long and detailed updates to read, instead of multiple short ones being sent every few seconds

Even if they are not that long, having just good detail and description makes me feel more immersed in the RP.

(P.S. Diablo get on the chat)

This is one of my biggest points in HL2RP: /me detail. Nobody ever really takes the time to detail their /mes. CCA units are what citizens look up to, so they need to see units doing it RIGHT.

I've always agreed with this argument of details, but, it is not exactly possible to fit all those details in the desc, I still fully agree with Cinere. Be as detailed as possible, but know when you are over doing it. We can't have everybody typing novels each time they /me lol.

Apparently you've only recently started making novels ;P I haven't seen you typing very many huge /me's until recently in all honesty, keep it up though man, just know when it's too much and going completely overboard lol.
