Title: [+++] Reducing Taxi’s levels requirements by 15% [READ]
Post by: Sinon on 18 05, 2020, 11:56:00 am
Greetings Community,


I'm here to suggest reducing Taxi's levels requirements by 15%, I will explain everything including why so before making any judgment/vote make sure to read it all.


before a long time, the Taxi's payment/cash got reduced to depend on the level, however they forgot something, Taxi's levels work on the earning so changing the payment/cash made it to be harder than what it used to be.


Back then, the taxi's payment/cash had nothing to do with the level, as it used to be whether being level 0 or level 10 all of them had the same payment, (and this is not what I'm suggesting), and it used to be hard to level up, however, now it's harder since the level decides the payment and the requirements did not get reduced at all, in fact one of the SO said level 10 requirements got increased from $19,000,000 earning to $21,000,000 earning which is insane, why it's insane? because I asked another SO who is level 10 about the average payment and he told me it's around $3,000-$7,000, ( no VIP passenger also depends on the distance), so can you imagine how it's hard to reach level 10 with these payments? I guess you may not thus let's do the math together.


but before we do the math let's see what's the current requirements for the Taxi job,

L0 - $0 Earnings - Training
L1 - $210,000 Earnings - Junior Driver
L2 - $630,000 Earnings - Trained Driver
L3 - $1,470,000 Earnings - Senior Driver
L4 - $2,730,000 Earnings - Specialist Taxist
L5 - $4,410,000 Earnings - Professional
L6 - $6,510,000 Earnings - Tourist Manager
L7 - $9,030,000 Earnings - First Class Driver
L8 - $11,970,000 Earnings - Executive
L9 - $16,530,000 Earnings - Celebrities Class
L10 - $21,000,000 Earnings - President & CEO


so let's do the math, however, to makes it more interesting  I will math it like if we have level 10 payment with 0 earning just to see the difference,

so if you have level 10 payment and let's say it's gonna be almost to the max $7,000 ( with no VIP passengers ), you will have to deliver 3,000 pedestrians and that's too many delivers, I believe 15% will make it more reasonable to me and to many players, 15% is not that much but it will help for sure.



after reducing it by 15% these are the new requirements

L0 - $0 Earnings - Training
L1 - $178,500 Earnings - Junior Driver
L2 - $535,500 Earnings - Trained Driver
L3 - $1,249,500 Earnings - Senior Driver
L4 - $2,320,500 Earnings - Specialist Taxist
L5 - $3,748,500 Earnings - Professional
L6 - $5,533,500 Earnings - Tourist Manager
L7 - $7,675,500 Earnings - First Class Driver
L8 - $10,174,500 Earnings - Executive
L9 - $14,050,500 Earnings - Celebrities Class
L10 - $17,850,000 Earnings - President & CEO


it does not sound crazy at all, but in fact, it sounds more reasonable, before I make this suggestion I actually discussed it with the civilians and most of them agreed with me, as it's very hard to reach level 10 and obviously it's harder than before.


That's all I got, share your thoughts about it in a reasonable way and I will make sure to read them all.

The current taxi driver is filled with randoms. Such as destinations, passenger locations etc.

Indeed it is making a huge time for the taxi driver to level up. Especially for new players, they don't have a well tuned taxi to do the job. Therefore, lowering the requirement of leveling in Taxi Driver makes sense from my point of view. Voting Positive

I vote positively for this suggestion because it's the current Taxi Driver profession and it's hard to be the L10 so players can level up and earn money more easily

The current Taxi Driver job system is complicated and underpaid. I believe by implementing this suggestion we would be motivating more players to work as as taxi drivers and get to enjoy the job. People are already bored from the high paid jobs and by balancing other jobs we would be giving them the opportunity to try new jobs without being paid less.

I think taxi driver is not too hard job. There are so many hard job in CIT like waste manager, fuel transporter etc and also there are so many easy job like lumberjack, medic etc. Everyweek, people suggest like this suggestions but if you are a hardworker player, you can be L10Lumberjack in a day, you can be L10Medic in 3 days, you can be L10 Taxi driver in 6-7 days, you can be L10 Waste Manager in 14-15 days... Imo don't be lazy and work harder. I m negative.

I feel that Taxi driver is one of the hardest jobs in the server and I rarely see people playing it , speaking for my self I tried it for like 1 hour and I admit that it's hard to reach the next level so people just try and then they don't play it again so this suggestion maybe make it active and enjoyable.
So I am up-voting

I see your point, however, the main of this point is not about being lazy, it’s about how it became more harder, which should not, therefore I suggested a small thing to push it a little and it might be the motivation to work as a taxi driver, as many people says it’s hard and not worth it.

Yeah, the taxi system is really hard right now.You get bored doing the job.When you do this job for 1 hour, we don't get the reward we deserve.Payments are low and level requirements are too much.I think the system you suggested would affect people's play by lowering the requirements of this job.At least it'll be a little easier to level up. Positive.

It's a good idea to offer people different job alternatives to pay. It's hard to improve job level and make money at taxi driver. Making it easier will motivate people to work in this job. If you're someone like me who likes to drive, that's a great idea. If you're tired of working another job, that would be a good choice. I support this.

I feel like this would increase the taxi drivers since its too hard to reach level 10 and there is a few players working as taxi driver so reducing the levels requirements by 15% is really good and gonna be a good addition the job gonna be more attractive to players since it would be easier to get level 10 and also would increase the players who working as taxi driver and I don't really think 15% is too much since is the job isn't even easy to reach high levels I believe this would be balanced and I don't think this would harm anyone so i'm supporting this suggestion

in fact one of the SO said level 10 requirements got increased from $19,000,000 earning to $21,000,000 
wrong, it used to be 15M, then increased to the current one, however it was easy tbh to get L10 in taxi driver so, I don't wanna see everyone having L10 in a small duration, overall hard work pays off, i'm not talking about laziness but, the current one is better in my opinion, obviously i'm negative here.

In my opinion, problem is not about level requirements  it’s all about taxi driver earnings are poor. I have never seen I hit %50 of earnlimit on this job yet. You work almost 1-2 hours and get totally 200-300k. You can reach earnlimit in just 30 minutes on Cave Miner and Hunter job. so I prefer to getting more money from every passenger. Even though I am stillpositive just because If we don’t get more money, level requirements should be reduced.

Upvoting with this. Totally I agreed because I don't know why the earnings for taxi to level up is too high and we only receives max money 6k with VIP Passengers.

Why don't we add like the bus driver job the "City Route" and "State Route" to taxi driver job?So when you are working as a taxi driver you can go to another places not just on SF or LS.

The real issue that almost the average of the players that tried this job will work it the first,second day, and when they see the small progress that they made they will be discouraged to continue working because leveling up in this job is really hard and require spending many hours on working in order to levl up in it.

However you can keep the current reuirements of promotions but increase the payment of this job, this in my opinion sounds more reasonable because there are many jobs that require many hours of work and they pay really good comparing to the taxi driver job that people who try it for few hours get discouraged to reach high levels in it and spend the time in mining jobs as they will get tons of resources.

Moreover the solution that you requested is reasonable and i'm upvoting this suggestion as it seems a solution as how you explained, but instead I would like if you consider the second solution that I gave wich is keeping the current levels requirements and increasing the payment with 15 - 20 % of the current payments of each lovel starting from 0 to 10.
Hope you get my point that there are many jobs have high requirements as their payment is high you would get 600k in an hour as you are an L10 waste manager for example.

first of all, you are wrong as I took that information from a trusted SO, second of all isn't that selfish from you, that you don't other people to get level 10 as well? especially when it got harder than before, I really can't reply to you especially with the way you think.

I get your way and it may better, however, there are 2 things that block it, first if anyone reached his earn limit he will stop, on the other hand, if we reduced the requirements he might be able to level up faster, second I don't think the administrators will agree on increasing the payments, thus I came up with reducing the requirements.

To settle the dispute it used to be 15m, but maybe it got increased to 19m before going to 21m, I don't know but i'm sure it used to be 15m, anyway, taxi driver has bad payment and is a job that depend of factors outside the players control so you can actually get a good payment, like the amount of people playing at the same time or if you get lucky with a vip passenger, while the level 10 requirement were 15m I already found to be quite a lot since the job don't really have much to offer and it was quite difficult already.Positive

It’s not gonna be in a small duration 15% is not that much, also I ain’t buying your story am sticking to my trusted fella, anyhow there is no point in posting any further, you already explained your point.

The current current version is hard comparing to the other jobs in the same levels, because leveling up in taxi driver job is not that easy in it's first levels, which it might be easier than that in the other jobs IMO, and that drives us to the point of decreasing every job's requirements. I guess implementing this would be reasonable and worth it's time, I'm positive.

Actually, you're right. I know how hard it is to get level in the taxi business.I haven't had a cab in a long time because it's hard to increase the level.I totally agree with you. This kind of innovation will be a good update for the taxi profession. I'm vote Positive.

You're absolutely right, but there's something else you don't explain, and it's absolutely important.

What is that? I'll explain it right away.

There are a lot of people who make this job L10. If that happens, wouldn't it be unfair to those who had done L10 before? I think it's okay. Personally, if I had done this job in L10, I would have voted negatively, because I tried and made L10, so I made $21 million in total, and it would be unfair if someone else started from L0  and ended it sooner than me. I hope I've been explanatory, it's important that you consider what I'm saying. Im voting neutral.

I don't see many people work as taxi drivers and honestly, I thought it's exhausting to drive all around, but after checking the discussion board, I have noticed this suggestion, and after reading it all, it's actually make sense why people don't work/prefer this job, the requirements to level this job up is too high, and I think it'll take from me forever to max this job.

My vote is : Positive

Indeed, what you have actually stated, is reasonable in the perspective of the people who tries to level up their level, considering that taxi driver job depends on the earning, so reducing the requirements is the best way to fix it, since increasing the payments won't satisfy the administrators, I'm going with positive.

Defininetly , as We see numbers compare to other jobs this is very high
I also think that similar is situation with Trucker , and Pilot jobs I must mention that level progress on this 2 jobs is also too hard.
Also second reason why should be added this is that new players under 100 hours mostly work as taxi I realized this thing,since I saw many of them working as Taxi driver.As We already know is to hard to progress when you newbie so this thing def. should be added  :tick:

I tried before ti level taxi driver job, I found that job requirement is too high, I first ignored it as I thought it wouldn't be too hard, Just some hard work and it will be done (one of my recent L10 friend), After j started I found that the job payment is too low and the requirements to level it is too high so I found that it's unfair at all, And also I thought when Rami decreased some Jobs requirements that Taxi driver was one of them, But after some times someone told me he didn't, In short, I really believe this is a great help to us,

Positive.

I heared many things about that job and how it's hard and now I am working as Taxi Driver, and I know now why it's very hard especially for the newbies.

I want to about something in the jobs:
In trucker job you should pass about 600 miles to get the next job (earler ranks), and if you want to be the top trucker, then you should work after getting the 600 miles, maybe you should pass 800, but in taxi driver job if you got the promotion then be sure that you are the top and u will be until the reset, because the requirements to get L2 as taxi is around 400k!! and it's too much, So I think reducing the requirements will be good for all.

Positive.

Hey, I like your idea of reducing the job requirement of taxi job by 15%, why? because the taxi job is one of the hardest job to level up and reducing just 15% is gonna make the job a slight easier but not super easy. I don't see much player working as a Taxi Driver since I came back playing like a week ago, maybe they're got tired because of the high requirements of the job or they already made it to level 10, who knows? but I will give a positive vote on your suggestion.

Hi,
I really like your suggestion and It's a must to reduce the promotion requirements, but still 15% is too less, the requirements to me in my opinion 30% reduction is better I guess, the normal gap between L1 and L3 itself will take weeks, even if  we reduce by 15% there should be a slight increase in the earnings as well because you don't really make that good in taxi driver, and sometimes there are stops that are like 100m away and u get paid like 400$ for that so that also needs to be fixed. I am voting Positive on this one though.

Yes, yes and yess. After NoD3s update to all civilian jobs level requirements, all jobs ruined. After that some of this updates were reverted. But taxi job is still not fixed. I was 4 level in taxi job before nod3s uptade but after that my level decreased to 1 and I'm really pissed off from this. I hope your suggestion will be accepted. I'm giving Positive vote  :tick:

Yes, I agree that leveling up as a taxi driver is very difficult and time consuming. Reducing the requirement to level up would be a better suggestion than actually getting paid more. The goal is leveling up and not actually getting rich. I mean how many taxi drivers own a Lamborghini lol. So yes, I agree with Sinon and I hope this suggestion is accepted because it will encourage players to become a taxi driver and not just all hoard Hunter job for the fantastic pay. Positive

Current system of taxi driver is not easy at all, as every passenger gives between 3-5k (L6) but VIP passenger gives around 15k which is overpaid, Not going to mention the distance as the payment increase if the distance is too far. But it still not balanced job because 21m isn't easy to reach it in order get L10.
I believe that decreasing requirements of taxi driver by 15% might motivate civilians and they'll surely improve their level as much as they can in short duration.

according to my experience as a civilian, This suggestion will help many players and newbies too because many players don't like it due to Its high requirements.
But The earning(progress) between Level 8 and level 9 is higher than the earning(progress) between level 9 and level 10 make it balanced and this will be perfect.
Supporting this. :tick:
