    So I was looking over the paths on the Torn homepage, and of course the Criminal path has drug dealing, but what if the drugs could be made/grown! How feasible would it be to have an update where, take cannabis for example, there where the cannabis was either male or female. Most of them would be male, female being rare, (because the female is the one that buds with seeds or whatever to grow more) and if you had a female plant. And like with the option in Items to turn on a computer, you could "plant" the cannabis, and get a few more. But the catch so then the drug market doesn't flood, is just like crimes, you can't start making LSD or something. Growing requires some skill, and for some time you can only grow one plant, just braking even, or even lose it. There could be something to spend merits on to raise skill. But the more one attempts to grow, the more they could yield, and/or get a small increase in the chance of growing female plants. Of course, like most thing is Torn, this skill would take a long, long time to develop, and maybe should only be available after lvl 5 or something. Then in the crimes section, under maybe shoplifting, there in like a Walgreens/convince store option to rob, where you could walk out with Over The Counter drugs or other things you an buy in stores to make drugs. With randomness it would take time to get everything, and you would end up with a lot of easier supplies, and probably need to get that one last ingredient "limiting resource", but then you could try and "craft" LSD or smoother drug. The more you make it the better you get, and then you have it.  I think this could really add to the druggie game experience and then add another level or "real-ness" to game. What do you guys think. 

    I'm a fairly new player and don't actually use drugs. Where do these drugs come from? How are they added to the circulation. I know at least some can be stolen from the hospital, but what about the rest?

    Edit: I've been corrected on where drugs come from. I only thought the above because you could get morphine from the hospital.
    • Would you want this implemented in the game?
    • Yes!
    • No.
    • I like the idea, but a lot needs to be changed.

    hmmm...  so are you sussing this out to come up with a more thorough suggestion?  It sounds like a suggestion now.  I don't think I would be interested in it but I bet there are people in my faction that would.  That's the beauty of this game.. one can do the things that interest them...  Sometimes I like racing... sometimes I don;t think about doing it for months.  Sometimes I'll think about going to SA to hunt.  So I think it sounds like it could be worked into the game even if I wouldn't actually be interested in playing this part of the game.  I do think this probably belongs in the Suggestions section tho.

    This has been suggested before; find the appropriate thread in the suggestion forum and R+ and bump it!

    In the development queue are both changes to drugs and crimes. However, there are other things, like Territories, that are ahead of those items.

    This

    No need to make Torn one of those games where you repeatedly perform the same tasks for minute amounts of in game currency and a small boost to some abstract, useless statistic.

    Wait...

     

    Thank you Kuroyukihime [284514] for making those lovely signatures for me!

    Crimes are going to be revamped anyway. If I remember well, some crimes will produce components needed for others. And maybe factions would get a drug lab as an upgrade. 

    But if you can't resist the urge of seeing something grow, start a farm company. Maybe company owners will tell you to brace yourself for a painful grind. I owned a sports team in the past, performed really great on many counts, but had had it and sold it. But if that's what you want, who am I to stop you?

    Recently in the Auction House:
    Dune Vest (sold for: 820m),
    and Dune Gloves (sold for: 515m)

    See you next time face_08.gif

    I think DeadTitanKiller was meaning to inject more of this into Torn: than Farmville...however, as others have said, this should be moved to the suggestion forum or bump the one that's already there in the suggestion forum.

    I'm unsure of what did you smoke, but please do give me some...Also I'm not sure if you how "plants" are actually "working". If you want to make more serious suggestion about this I suggest you first take a closer look at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plant_reproduction it could help you become the plant master.

    would like to point out: " you can't start making LSD or something"

    LSD comes from a bloody plant, so does cannabis, if you can grow cannabis you can grow LSD
