Myself and a few others have been toying with the idea of creating a local government to act as a central power for civilians. Unlike the last two 'governments' - this one will be comprised of multiple players, both active and dedicated, and is able to take a more direct approach to regular civilian life, as Soviets are no longer wholly dependant on the civilian/insurgent scene with the introduction of NATO. Currently, as I'm sure many will agree, civilian mains lack direction. @Sneaky makes an interesting analysis with the whole 'initiator' mentality, and currently there are too many people in all factions who wait for roleplay to happen, rather than creating it. A local government would focus on the following - but be aware these are merely suggestions for discussion, rather than anything currently set in stone: Forced employment for all civilians, whether they be shoehorned into a player-controlled business - such as bars/vehicle dealerships, or state-sanctioned ones - taxi's, for example. State-run public services, with the nationalisation of things like the fire department being propped up by the government with subsidiaries and general support. This would also fall in line with the mandatory employment aspect, where some civilians may be injected into the fire department as employees. This would also likely follow with an increase in vehicles/equipment, dependant on circumstances. In addition, state-run hospitals would also crop up, likely amalgamating with the red cross to form official medical care. State-run farms, with civilians being appointed to manage/harvest crops and meet certain quotes. Government delegates responsible for handling different tasks - e.g someone responsible for handling businesses, and subsequent permits/subsidiaries, one responsible for civilian employment, etc. Potential housing system, depending on how things go. Again, these are points of discussion rather than guarantees. A local government would be comprised of multiple people rather than a singular mayor, and should be the overarching authority outside the Soviet base - although they are still the ultimate authority in Germany as a whole. For now... :^) Anyway, discuss what you'd like to see or elaborate on the points above. If you're interested in being part of the government, shoot me a message on steam and we'll go from there. If the community accepts this there'll be the relevant events to get the ball rolling. We can't go ahead with this unless we know people want it, so let us know what you think, even if it's just a plain yes/no.
