  • What I want to know is what happened to gamemodes GMS and wintersurvival. Is it just me or are these gamemodes starting to realy die out? If they are dieing, why? And what can/should be done to keep them around a bit longer?
  • Stranded used to be popular a few years ago, but I guess people just got bored of it. It was fun for a while but I eventually got bored of it.
  • they're gamemodes that have just a short period of fun, so they die out fast. when you first play it, it seems like an awesome gamemode and you're confused as to why it's dead. Then when you've played it for 2 weeks straight, you get bored of it.
  • Keeping them around would only be possible via one thing. Releasing a brand new version coded from scratch that is actually mod able :V (Stranded)
  • Mixing survival with some kinda shoot everyone rp would be alright. Think stalker or metro. Struggling to survive and exerting your authority using a weapon with only 5 bullets left. EDIT: A guessing game does he have enough bullets to kill us all before we steal his boat
  • I'd say set up a system of limited resources, then allow players to fight over the resources available, however this would require a setup so players are not instantly armed, yet armed soon enough so new players don't get ran off from all the resources...

  • As they said, they easily get bored, you have to go onto the internet to get strategy guides and recipes (which most people frankly won't do) and the annoyances of people having level 79 and you having 1 and them using their power on you is frustrating. Basically, people got frustrated and although it's fun for a short amount of time it's painful in large doses.

  • You can find servers like Team AWOL stranded and codename sky, which are heavily modified versions of stranded, and last much longer to play than GMS. CNS is unrecognisable as a stranded gamemode, other than the basic functions, like planting/mining/chopping. They are very well made and if you want to try them out, : Team AWOL Sky:27.50.70.51:27019 Team AWOL Stranded:203.217.2.113:27015
