@idea from Walker
Cars shuold be given a license plate so that they are trackable. This should be automated from the dealer. unless a vanity plate is specified.
and if one so chooses there should be a way to change the plates.

I dont like the idea of the plates being removable. If you relly think with all the cool shit we got for our cars today and imagine in 85 years from now the shit we will have will be nuts. I think an LCD screen on the front and back that reads your license plate would be nice. But I think that right now if any work is done on cars it should be put into decent security systems, I mean like any car when you order it you have different packages to choose from, like the premium or the deluxe and they all have a different alarm. And the top grade ones zap you and knock you out for like fifteen second and shout for help over a loudspeaker.
I dunno just a thought.
After playing NFSU2, and helping my buddy turn his POS Geo Storm from shit to semi-pimp, I had a cool idea for SD.
Street races, body kits, add-ons, nitro, stero systems,and all that cool shit you can do with cars.
Of course, no mixer, save for the crime lords, can afford somthing like a 2089 Mono, and cool features.
So, how about at KRO's we have a used car lot??
Old 2049 Mustangs that can barely get off the lot, and then you can bring them back, put some turbo and shit in it, and turn it into a real racer.
It would probably be hell on code, but think about it.
Street races for cash, or even your fucking car! It would also throw alot of RP and income at the mechanic players.
Who says that vehicles -are not- trackable and or uniquely identifiable? :biggrin:
And don't bother askin' cause we're not telling. It's IC info.
As for coded vehicle mods, as cool at it would be there are a few problems with it.
The first two that come to mind are ..
There are higher priority things (repeat after me) 'on the list'.
99% of the people living in the mix (most characters included), couldn't afford a car so wouldn't be interested in mods, -some- current characters being the exception.
Of course, this doesn't mean you can't -RP- it.

Which leaves one to wonder where they get them.
It's the Mix, man. They don't get them, they -steal- them. And every now and then they rig one from scratch and lots of duckt tape... o.O
