Too far and the vehicle disappears right after I enter the ammunation, as well. Without mentioning that I don't have enough money to purchase anything, and newly registered players would surely face the same issue.
No, it doesn't have to go like that always. I want to earn money by myself but still I don't receive something conspicuous to purchase what I really need everytime I'm DMing. I'm still convinced an increasing of ammo would do no harm.
Implement a feature which allows you to either choosing a specific team, as we already do, or going automatically by random making also some balance within the gangs' membership numbers if there are too many in one already. This should show up as soon as you type /TDM.
