[LSGOV] Appealing for crews for involvement

Recommended Posts

CheapApples12

Hi There!

 

Before we get down to business, I'd like to introduce myself! My name is Bradley, I'm a full-stack web developer and I'm currently the lead developer for an upcoming GTA 5 mega crew. Anyone who has ever had anything to do with roleplaying in GTA 5 has at some point come across a website that represents a crew on GTA.

 

Well, we plan on changing that completely forever. If you're interested, then strap yourself in; it's going to be a hell of a post.

 

Down to Brass Tax

In a nutshell, what we're planning on doing, is creating a Government that has the authority to represent a heavy volume of crews within GTA 5. The Government will have the power to set budgets for sub-crews, engage in realistic government-based roleplaying, liaison with other crews to establish plans and build engaging relationships, connect recruiting crews and players looking for crews, and a whole bunch of other cool stuff.

 

We've already partnered with the Los Santos Police Department, allowing us to provide AMAZING experiences within GTA 5. The Los Santos Police Department brings alot to the table, such as Web Applications (such as working Criminal Databases and C.A.D.'s), infringement issuing, the ability to operate courts, and once again, other awesome stuff.

 

We believe that all crews have something unique and interesting to offer, and we're appealing to crew leaders, crew members and people looking for crews to join the government and connect eachother in one place in a way that hasn't been done anywhere else before.

 

What are we looking for?

At the moment, we're currently focusing on the crew aspect of the government. The government plans to operate as an overseeing body in which crews can liaison with and engage in awesome roleplaying. We'll explain some more of the aspects of joining a little later in this post. As of now, we are currently looking for the following armed forces & agency crews to join the government and operate under it as such:

 

  • Federal Investigation Bureau;
  • United States Secret Service;
  • United States Navy;
  • United States Marine Corps;
  • Weazel News;

We are offering the opportunity of a life time to anyone who runs any of those crews and has at least 20 (active) pre-existing members and has been in operation for more than 3 weeks. We can guarantee that the offer that you are about to receive never has been and never will be better.

 

We are offering the crews access to some of the worlds best, most realistic roleplaying resources. Not only will the government develop a complete website and custom backend software for these crews, but the websites that the government provides will be free of charge, custom built (to specification, or real-life counterpart), 100% free of website builders and will be come with their own custom URL. The pre-decided URL's for the respective divisions are as follows:

 

Federal Investigation Bureau: https://fib.lsgov.net

United States Secret Service: https://secretservice.lsgov.net

United States Navy: https://navy.lsgov.net

United States Marine Corps: https://marines.lsgov.net

Weazel News: https://weazelnews.lsgov.net

 

As mentioned, the websites will have fully custom design, by default, they will be built to their real-life counterparts specifications (unless the real-life versions are ugly haha - we're looking at you, USMC). The websites will also have custom recruitment applications, recruitment-flow, back-end applications and will all be linked using oAuth (You can use you Navy login on our LSGOV websites and vice-versa).

 

Examples of websites already in development can be found at:

https://police.lsgov.net

https://www.lsgov.net

https://airforce.lsgov.net

https://weazelnews.lsgov.net

https://defence.lsgov.net

 

All crews are also entitled to custom email address, and we do accept forwarding and aliasing of pre-existing domains. Emails would look something like: d45bfd278bad115db4ef8d19854e22c6.png

 

 

How will command structure work?

Command structure for the government will be developed to almost mirror real life. This is not for a roleplaying purpose, but for another reason that crews will need to consider before applying. The Government will be a democratic body for Grand Theft Auto 5 Online. No one person will own the government, citizens registered with the government will have the opportunity to vote for a new administration every months, meaning that anybody can become President.

 

Command Structure will work as follows, we will use the Marine Corps as an example:

 

PRESIDENT (chooses cabinet)

SECRETARY OF DEFENSE (chooses Secretary of the Navy, and is included in discussion on budget for the Defence Force)

SECRETARY OF THE NAVY (typically chooses the Commandant of the Marine Corps)

COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS (chooses all other crew ranks; including normal members) <-- This rank would go to you, in your USMC crew

 

So, as you can see, the ranks are designed to ensure that no-one can cause a crew to collapse. As your crew will from the point of acceptance into the LSGOV, be operating with requirements and possible restrictions as handed down by the Cabinet and other officials, (such as budget), you are given the right to choose where your budget is spent, the weapons and vehicles you use, and the policies you enforce (all of these are also mentioned in this post).

 

So, with all that said, not a lot changes in regards to the command of your crew. Only the advisory members above you.

 

What's all this about budgeting?

Budgeting is practice that we are introducing to throw things around and change roleplaying for people. The basic idea of things, is crews are presented on a statement given to the elected President shortly after the new President is elected. The statement contains your crew, and the President and Cabinet are tasked with allocating "money" to crews based on a set amount. The amount your crew is given dictates the weapons, vehicles and equipment your crew is entitled to use.

 

For example, let's say that your crew has been provided a budget $40,000,000,000 (40 billion dollars), and in order to equip your members with Combat MG's, it will cost a total of $10,000,000,000. That leaves you $30,000,000,000 to play with and allocate in other areas of your crew. This is all done in a web-app on the Government website accessible to only the crew leader, and cannot be manipulated by anyone other than a unanimous vote in Congress after the budget allocation has been finalized (apart from Department budget cuts that are not able to be directed at your crew, rather departments as a whole - ie. Department of Defence).

 

How will voting work?

Voting is explained in detail at the LSGOV website. You learn about voting and exactly it will work at https://www.lsgov.net/voting.

 

Will I have to pay for any of this?

Absolutely not! This project is available to anyone and everyone completely free!

 

Where do I sign up?

You can contact us today to get your crew listed by messaging our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/LSGOV).

 

What about a cool, super-hero video?

We have those!:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GN8CmSCfaM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heaECnpPI2M

 

 

What about crews that aren't on that list. Will they be included?

You bet your bottom dollar they will! The LSGOV website will be an open platform. We will be allowing in-game companies and any kind of crew to register and access resources such as posting advertisements for recruitment on our "Employment" page, as well as direct linking back to GTA Forums to allow people to view your crew's awesome, in depth posts and respond to them as such. (We might even make websites for crews not on that list that we think rise above the crowd.

 

How do you accommodate those crews?

That's a really good question! We've spent ALOT of time, creating a platform unlike any other. Our main goal in this whole plan is to ensure that we make room for everyone. That's why we spend so much time on recruitment material, and more importantly, our flagship Jobs Center. Our Jobs Center enables everyone to find their perfect crew. In a nutshell, we created Linkedin for GTA 5! The way it works, is this:

  1. Crew leaders register their crew on the Jobs Center (this takes less than 30 seconds to do).
  2. Anyone looking for a crew joins the Jobs Center, and applies!

It's literally that simple. Although, it has PLENTY of benefits. For one, you can say goodbye to Google Forms and Jotform.. because the Jobs Center has a completely integrated and accessible applications management system, so you can manage users, applications and advertisements all in one place. Once a user has applied, you can message them using our custom in-house messaging app!

 

Better yet, it means that you don't have to go to different websites to apply for different crews. They're all in one place!

 

Here are some screenshots of that service:

Example Job (Screenshot)

You can check out the Jobs & Employment Center today at https://www.lsgov.net/jobs.

This is truly something else. The amount of dedication that was put into making it very realistic but awesome inspires me. Do not miss out if you are a crew leader. And if you are a person looking for a crew, make sure to apply, as its something you will not regret.

Hello Vaulttec,

 

My name's Lt. Commander GB and I represent the crew as head of our Navy SEALs. Unfortunately for you, our crew is on Xbox One and has no intentions of moving to PS4, or branching out just yet at least. Our president has sent me to deliver you this news, and we hope you have a good day.

 

For more information on our crew in general, please visit: www.lsgov.net

or PM me on Xbox, KIK or here: Username - GeBRsB

 

Thank you for submitting a request and we thank you for your time

 

GB, Head of Navy SEALs unit

What GeBRsB saidt is not correct, we have full intentions to expand to all platforms by mid-2017. Please contact me directly on KiK: sexyturtles11

 

There must have been a lapse in communication. Any and all messages from the executive body will be passed through me, as I am part of it.

Well, our crew might not be able to meet the criteria for joining, however we do have experience in the intelligence field, so if you'd like we could fill the void.
