Variety is the spice of life - Minor weekly events

Random server events occurring every week with varieties of positive and negative effects. A citywide higher quality water that temporarily acts like Hotdogs for thirst. A nationwide Oil shortage so EMS are the only ones allowed to do oil. Dominos workers riot forcing the business to pay 50% more for the week. Not enough Fuel Delivery workers forcing people to fill up only to 75% on their cars... Stanley desires more Airbags and will pay double for them... Locals want more weed and will pay 20% more... Variety is the spice of life. Players character lives get stagnant and a lot of people eventually fall into a routine where they do the same dull thing every day. If we had random events that we were alerted of the week before, and then activated and enforced for a week, there would be small, unique changes players will need to adapt to. For jobs, it will mean players try them more, or remind people that some of the "Danny jobs" still exist.

-------------

As aforementioned above, but I will go into greater detail, for a personal experience of the server, and I strongly encourage others to do the same.

Dakota's life consists of the following daily routine. She'll fly in, clock into the radio, Announce she's in city. From here, she'll get a couple of Dannies who call her up to hang out with, whom she'll respectfully agree or decline, To mix things up. This will normally result in trying to help the Dannies move into the city proper, learn the ropes. This is the only variety she will have in a day. From here she'll loiter at TBT south, giving away coffee to TBT workers, before opening up the 665 Coffee shop for a couple of hours. Occasionally she will involve herself in Teamster activities. - this is a very rough, loose routine and a lot has been removed because too much meta info leaked is a bad thing. She'll occaisionally do the rare weed growth, chop, etc. but this is the only variety she does and are not her fulltime goals. 

Random events will also incur more between character action. People will talk about rioting pizza workers and laugh at them. Police may cruise around North Chop more if theres an event for that, and I could go on.

If anyone agrees, please post below some ideas for random weekly events that would be minor impacts, but cause enough of a difference to incur people playing slightly differently? Or perhaps what their characters all do currently as their routine? That would show that people are much more keen on this idea

Absolutely love this idea. One thing someone mentioned in the discord is the city isn't stopping you from creating these weekly RP scenes. I think if you created and was successful with these scenes GOV would see this and maybe dedicate some dev time to help you out. Would love to see this in the future.
