Licenses

TC's license system was introduced to link certain game functionality to licenses. Only a license holder can access certain functionality in-game.

The license system is very extensible and also covers less important licenses like DJ. Some of the licences don't even have any game-funcionality at all, they rather just exist to link badges to them e.g the Gumball-badges or Team-badges.

COP / MED / RES / TOW
Playing certain roles on TC requires you to own a particular license e.g if you wanted to play as COP, you'd need to own a valid COP-license.

Currently, the following 3 roles require a valid license:
COP
MED/RES
TOW

In these cases, the licenses basically prove that you are qualified for the role and have the knowledge that is necessary to play it. To obtain either of these licenses, a written test must be taken. These licenses also have a limited validity (usually 1 year). After that, the license lapses and a new test must be taken. This is to keep everyone's knowledge on a high level.

Possible future use
Since the system is very open the possible scenarios are possible:
Directly buyable licenses that enable new functionality
System-granted licenses that enable new functionality, ie as a bonus
