  • I really think it's over-populated because you make it WAY too easy for people to start up a server, and therefor any 12 year old with an allowance will do such. I mean, sure, there should be an easy way to add things, just not 1 line functions to make every single server generic

Come on, are you honestly criticizing me for making it too easy to set things up? The servers aren't that generic anyway. Most servers have unique sets of jobs, shipments and addons running. You'd have to consider the whole customization of these three things as generic in order to call DarkRP servers generic.

A gamemode shouldn't be harder just to avoid 12 year olds can't make a server. If you don't want to play on a 12 year old's DarkRP, then don't.

Everything is extremely generic and you made the base of the gamemode extremely simple to minge/fuck up others gameplay with (literally join, /gundealer, buy a gun, and shoot everyone).

Like you have to play as citizen for 2h to get gundealer. Or what's with systems to stop unrp pple, like useless shooting with glock as police gives you something like a -1 point. 1 ooc message per 1min, ... My Ideas are crap, just bring back RP into DarkRp. It's impossible to let the players do that, thats why we have so much problems with darkrp so use other forces to bring rp back. Sorry for bad english ;)

  • I think Fptje is making a good effort to improve the code of darkrp, if darkrp is going to exist at least if it's update it wont be as bad! I have to say though, one thing that pisses me off the most is the combination of small maps like downtown with dark rp. Dark rp is decent to fuck about in but holy shit downtown makes my eyes bleed, I mean I probably couldn't do better but, I wish someone just made a replacement to replace that map.
  • [QUOTE=supersnail11;35575046]No, I said "It's stupid to limit people to what they can roleplay. Let it be open, and administrate well."[/QUOTE] I think the problem is that relying on administration doesn't work. It's very rare that mods/admins can be on at all times to keep order, and many of the cases they're just as retarded as most players. I think the solution is still to have game mechanics that encourages players to play serious. Like making it easier to be demoted when you're mayor/civil protection and not doing your job, like not being able to spawn shipments instantly and work as a moving armory as a gundealer, like not being able to easily spawn a moneyprinter and rely on it to make you rich while you fuck around not doing your job.

It's small enough that it's easy to navigate around and memorize routes, but large enough that there's plenty of places to have a hideout, shops, or an apartment. It's small enough to get around easily, but large enough that there's plenty of scattered around places to make your home. People like DarkRP on Downtown because DarkRP simply works very well on that map, both when you play serious and unserious. I wouldn't mind some variation, but not many people have made maps that work so well with DarkRP.
  • Many SWEP-based actions can be attached to zoom key, e.g. when looking at door/vehicle - lock/unlock / hold key for buying/selling ----------------- other players vehicle/door - knock / hold key for lockpicking (as mob boss) / hold key fo bashing it with ram (as cop) ----------------- cop - request gun license ----------------- other player, while playing as cop - make him wanted / hold key for arrersting/unarresting him And others! No longer switching 9000 times between tons of sweps, just one key! Also there is a gread module for DarkRP made by Banana Lord, called Properties. IMHO it deserves to be in vanilla gamemode.

Just a guess though, I don't know much about LUA.

Its just that the server owners refuse to let go of a small, isolated map like downtown. Or an outdated, and not so good looking map like evocity.

Just the fact that it's a huge map, in memory and size requirements, is what I think keeps it from being popular.

  • [QUOTE=wanksta11;35601836]I was talking to grommito0th[/QUOTE] Well I did play it, I can say yes it was better than Down-town, but only marginally in my opinion, the areas were far too enclosed with nowhere to run to, no alleyways to escape down, it was all clear cut along the road, there was no deviating from the road. I like the fact that the buildings on the inside were more detailed but a lot of the general layout of the town felt cramped and I can tell it would feel even more cramped on a 24 man RP server with cars. I mean, there's nowhere to really go! It's small!
  • Would it be possible to divide criminal professions into an optional subcategory? First you choose a real legal profession (or unemployed/hobo), this will be what you work as and what other players see as your profession. Then you choose what you do if you're criminal (or if you're completely lawful), and you get the benefits of those jobs as well. It's a bit boring that you can instantly tell by looking at someones player model and know if they're likely to be a criminal, and players with the criminal professions have nothing better to do than constantly spend their time with other criminals. If if would be possible to both do a normal job and be a criminal, players will have much more to do since they can use their job as a cover for what they do criminally, they'll get to interract more with other players since they aren't just full time criminal that everyone avoids anymore, and everyone can now be a suspect of a crime. It's more realistic, and it's more fun. This way, the mob could also work as per invitation rather than by selecting your class a mobster. If the mobboss worked as a class that could invite other players to set their criminal status as "mobster", it would work a lot more like real gangs.
