Turnstile mayhem
Automated @idea from in-game

@idea from Jaguar

I think you should be able to jump the turnstiles in the mag-lev stations. maybe put a gaurd in each station so people dont. But if someoenes luck is good enough maybe they could get by, or if there have high stealth ya know?

That's a good idea.  I got a good one too.

John Boy pulls the chyen out of his pocket for the lev.  He steps up to the turnstile, preparing to drop the chyen in.  Before he can react, the chyen slide into the slot, and JoBob runs from the crowd, pushing you aside and stealing your ride.

That would be interesting.

Or how about ...

John Boy pulls the chyen out of his pocket for the lev. He steps up to the turnstile, preparing to drop the chyen in.

Before he can react, JoeBoy walks up to JohnBoy seeing the chyen, beats him to a bloody pulp, takes -all-JohnBoy's chyen, slots it, and rides the lev.

Gosh, you could almost do that now.

Oh wait ... you can.

And turnstile jumping isn't a new idea.

I know, I just can't remember seeing (other than gangers), and IC mugging.

I can't even imagine how much ridiculous amount of code would have to be used to put that in the game. Especially when there are so many other, more important things to be coding right now.


Besides, don't you think it's hard enough for the mods to control the NPCs? But to add, say 1 or 2 to each maglev station would result in at least 6 more.

You know what really sucks, slotting chyen and then having the door close before you get on.  Really annoying.

I agree. STUPID AUTOMATED CONDUCTORS!

Aflec get's a gold star on that post about 'waste of time and effort'.

Amen.

Ya know, if you're grappling someone and you carry them through the turnstile, you don't have to pay for them. �I guessing that's not intentional, but I suppose it could be a way to "jump the turnstile".
Oh, and I had an idea on the paying to go on and then getting the door slammed in your face thing.  What if you pay your 45 chyen to enter the staging area and then you can get on any mag-lev that comes through.

No, see, I like that the doors can close on your face.  That's just another example of the corpies screwing the chummers.  Granted it's not intentional, but it's a nice touch in my opinion.  I mean that's what it's about.  The rich want to get richer and make the poor become the broke! They'll try and get your money anyway they can, even if it includes making you pay for a train that's already firing up it's engines to fly.

yeah! exactly...

a)think of it as the next step up from slotting in your hard earned:
1 buck/toonie/pound/*insert favorite currancy here*
b)in order to get a:
coke/pepsi/presidents choice/*insert favorite beverage here*
c)and getting:
zilch/nada/shit all/*insert favorite synonym for nothing here*

in return.

:biggrin:
