  1. Hello, 

    my name is twinky and I am wanting to be a huge help to the community and give people help and guidance, I am hoping to create a gang based on giving to the people who need the help the most. I am also fairly new i joined about an hour ago and was wondering if you with you almighty power and also kind nature and love for the community help me get a little started off and get people to know my cause. I am twinky the leader of the desperadoes leader of the rebellion we give to the needy and take from the unworthy so if you believe my cause and trust my kind nature I hope you will respond and help me out so I can help the community and in return I will also do favors like you like maybe smuggle some grade A cocaine into your house so the law doesn't find out but keep that one on the down low so hush hush. as you can tell im huge into role playing and want to get more people involved so serisolsy I could use some help. thank you for your time and for the rebellion.

  2. Experienced Police Officer

    Hey Kracken! Welcome to the Identity community! People like yourself with experience in law enforcement will be a healthy benefit to the police career in this game. We hope we'll receive your approval by hopefully doing a good job representing law enforcement in Identity!
  3. Name change

    Sorry for the late response DJMaggus, please private message me letting me know what name you'd like to use on the website and forums.
  4. E-mail Change

    Hey Unrundead, if I understand correctly, you'd like to change your email address on the identityrpg.com account page. Please private message me with the email address you'd like it to be changed too!
  5. Cant Log in

    Hey Yannifatios, Jamesluck beat me to it, but please be sure you have created an account for both the website and forums separately. They are two different accounts. Let me know if the problem still persists!
  6. I send you a message.

    Cordially.

  7. Backer Only Area?

    We'd love to do this! We still need to integrate pledge tiers into forum user accounts. After that is sorted, we'll see about making this happen!
  8. Scam Email!

    Thanks guys, I'll investigate that.
  9. Do you or any other devs happen to know how clothing creation will work?

  10. Steam Beta?

    Hey Golden, Identity will be on Steam, but I'm not sure it will be on Steam during beta testing. You may have to download it from a custom launcher available on our website in order to test when the time comes. We will make more payment options available in the future from our website long before their are any changes to the current pledge tier options.
  11. Text Chat and concerns

    Text chat will be available to you in Identity! There will be local chat, as well as private messaging. We acknowledge that the convenience of voice chat isn't always what people want in every situation. Whether you are shy, or you want to pretend to be someone else, or even if someone in your proximity is trying to sleep, we don't want to suppress your ability to get a message across, but we do think that those who want and will use voice chat, will inherently have an enhanced experience in Identity.
  12. Will there BE Tornadoes Or Hurricanes????

    1. HairyGrenade

      There will not be.

    2. Odiggitydog

      Odiggitydog

      they said maybe on tornados

  13. Good pistol variety

    I can't yet say specifically what pistols will be in Identity. We're still adding some, and may remove others. But there will be a variety of pistols, including revolvers. We want handguns to be more common than any other weapon, with automatic weapons being rare enough that they are typically brought out by gun collectors for special occasions, like federal reserve robberies, or bank heists. We don't expect that players will be roaming the streets with an AK-47 or M4A1 attached to their backs due to the high risk of losing it. Other players, including cops can see the weapons attached to your hip or back, and the deadlier it is, the more valuable target you are for others. There won't be any sniper rifles or long range weapon attachments beyond a simple 2x scoped hunting rifle. Expect gunfights to be close quarters. Shotguns are also included. Our ballistics model is pretty cool, and these weapons will quickly become a favorite for those who can afford to carry them. The whole idea is to keep things realistic. Ask yourself what you'd expect to see in real life when encountering a person with a firearm. You certainly wouldn't expect to see a Thompson Sub-machine gun, or a .50 caliber sniper rifle. What kind of handguns do you think are most commonly carried in modern day United States?
  14. Is this even true...

    We absolutely encourage people to wait to pledge until they are actually able to play the beta if they aren't sure what they are getting into yet. Our pledge options will still be available throughout that process. It's much less stressful that way, for all parties! 
  15. Is this even true...

    All very good questions. We continuously plot our budget to hire as many people as we can (accounting for up to a years pay in most cases) in all essential areas. This essentially means that in order to make more room for more artists or programmers, some of us have to do multiple jobs at once. For instance, I'm both the Community Manager and a 3D artist. Paratus, besides just being our project manager, is also a full time programmer and technical artist for Identity. He's always busy with one thing or another and It's not that he's taking 6 months to do one thing. it's more like that he's actually moving from one priority to another with the video never being at the top of that list. The longer it takes him of course, the higher priority it becomes, and it's certainly far past due now. He knows that and isn't intentionally avoiding it. We've had a lot of people offer to help us for free, but we've also had a few offer to help for a price. We have hired a couple freelancers in the past from our community on Twitter, but we do have incredibly high standards for our artists, and not everyone is capable of meeting those standards, and that kind of talent doesn't come free. The other issue is that, perhaps hypocritically on my part being the exception, we feel very strongly against accepting free work. With our budget in check, we can't afford to pay these people if they were looking for a paid job, and don't feel comfortable exploiting their services for free. There are a lot of moral and ethical concerns regarding that, even if the person providing thinks they are ok with it. From our experience, eventually they are going to want compensation, which leaves the door open for potential legal issues. I think this post particularly is a wake up call for our entire team. As a result of our lack of communication, we can observe how damaging false accusations, like that posted on Reddit can be, especially when noone from the community has been provided anything in support of countering these claims. Worse still, this burden is my responsibility specifically, and I absolutely do feel like I am underachieving by not being able to provide new information to our community with any kind of frequency. I will work with Paratus to see what we can move around to develop a new strategy for dealing with our PR issues.
