    Unhappy

    I figure I'll work on a new version of the Keyhearse script event, and maybe release it tonight.  It will have the following changes:

    1) You will be able to buy anti-scratch paint at Di-Mart.  It will work almost exactly like the padlock (and will probably be 6 gold as well), with each scratch wearing down the paint a little bit, until the paint wears completely off.  If you get caught scratching a hearse with anti-scratch paint, you will still be fined the equivalent of a gold tag.

    2) It will only add an event to the newspaper if you are caught scratching a hearse.  It just clutters everything up otherwise.

    3) The chance of getting caught will be vastly different.  Luck will play a much smaller role (right now it is solely dependent on luck), but so will other factors.  Like if you try to scratch someone with a higher ranking, you'll have slightly a better chance of getting away with it than if you scratch someone with a lower ranking.

    If anyone has any other suggestions, or thinks any of the changes are pretty stupid, let me know.

    I especially like points 2 and 3. I think your first idea is ok but if it's alot of work might not be worth the effort. 1 gold tag isn't much to loose and to have to key someone multiple times just to cost them 1 measly gold tag is a little overkill

    Hrm, you're probably right. I just finished coding it all too Ah well, I still haven't tested it extensively, and it looks like I might be able to release it tomorrow.

    How about instead of paint you make it a car security alarm and if you have one equipped there is a 25% higher chance the player won't succeed?

    I finished it. Download it over at the FQ Mod Page. I tested it quite a bit, and there didn't seem to be any problems.
