The focus is to get best of both worlds. Gamey mechanics of Arma 3 Life and Roleplay of FiveM. Basically you can have the hardcore RP while actually having a gamemode where the things you do are real(as in not just imagined for the sake of RP). It’s definetely a balance we’ll have to think alot about.
For the phones/computers it was mostly to force companies and police etc to invest in better laptops because they have to. Idea for example is that to install the DMV Registry App and Police DB App you need X amount of space, and that isn’t available on the worse models which means police have to get the more advanced ones, thus forcing progression. Same for companies etc. Won’t be focused on phones too much(phones will probably mostly be about screen size/shape) as I believe most people should have access to most features always.
