Quote:Arm the police Edict: get those batons off the policemen and arm then with some guns! Police now acts as a paramilitary unit in the government taking part in fighting the rebels. However they are inferior in battle to professional soldiers (just like uneducated conscripts) and do not carry out assassinations.
Zero tolerance Policy Edict: policemen will now throw anyone who they see is protesting against the government in jail (if there’s free space in the prison). Arrests made by policemen don’t cost a thing. Reduces liberty.
Traffic Cop training Edict: all vehicles move 1% faster per policemen present on the island, with a maximum cap of 15%. eg: if 8 policemen are active in the island all vehicles would move 8% faster than normal. If 22 policemen are active in the island all vehicles would move 15% faster.
TBI: Tropican Bureau of Investigation Edict: The tropican police now cracks down on corruption in the industrial buildings. Industries now use up 1% less raw material consumption per policeman active on the island with a maximum cap of 20%.
Police State edict: the policemen boost respect for El presidente in nearby citizens out of fear of police brutality, reduces public protests and liberty in the process.
a few things...
the arm the police one doesnt make much sence, as we already have marital law.. with the way tropico works, repression is more about the military.. though i supose these days "police" states are becoming more prevelant with just using cops..
zero tollerance with protests, automatically arresting protestors, but having this on should be a HUGE liberty hit.. this edict should cost something every year its active.
Traffic cop.... If anything, traffic cops reduce speed, in no place in my entire life have i seen a traffic cop speed things up.. the only thing it does is let traffic slowly outta roads that normally wouldnt see any trafic moving, but over all traffic slows. to me you would only use this if you have roads that get backed up.. It would be like adding traffic lights, but just like real life, they are less efficent.
Police state should decrease respec, and liberty, But protests shouldnt last as long.
TBI, (i wonder if you know that also means tramatic brain injury) I would suggest the TTBI.. The Tropico Bureau of invenstigation.. I like the idea with more efficient factories, BUT it should have a a big hit on liberty and respec hit on all factory workers. Noone ever wants big brother looking over its shoulder
