  • Has it ever been done?/Is it a good idea? I want to make a serious DarkRP server with serious RP rules. The reason for this is that there is both serious RP and easily attainable jobs to serious RP with (this is the reason most think serious RP is boring). I plan to make some basic changes (NO I AM NOT CLAIMING TO BE CREATING A CUSTOM DARKRP) to the jobs and weapon prices, and making some changes to the traditional rules, such as: No jobs except for unemployed, merchants and government No restriction on what jobs can do (like the ever so retarded gundealers can't raid rules. Who would be a gundealer other than a gangster?) Serious RP rules (/me's /me's /me's!) No salaries except for government workers and unemployed Realistic models (no more combine cops) Good idea?

  • Nononoonoononononononononononononononononononoononono. Get the message? These Serious DarkRP servers always go shocking. Trust me. I would turn to a fantastic gamemode called Tiramasu. That'll give you enough SeriousRP to last you a lifetime

  • I know DarkRP can be used for a lot, and it can be changed to suit your style. BUT, it still attracts the same people. People who don't want to play seriously. I'm not criticizing DarkRP, I run a server with it! I'm just saying, if you want to bring out the more mature people, go to Tirimasu 2. There are 90% less mingebags on that :) If you need any help OP, please add me on steam

  • As in lua help, Jenkins? I don't need any lua help. DarkRP could use less script functions, not more. Serious RP is RP>script.

  • Nothing is impossible. The only thing that makes it hard is idiots who join DarkRP servers to minge. And surprisingly there not really the kids who play it. There the stuck up wankers who post the same old immature comments posted on EVERY thread that even mentions DarkRP. DarkRP is a gamemode, people may run it how they wish. If someone truly wanted and could have round the clock admin then they could do anything there. Even truly serious RP. I can't think of any features that would stop people from using it for serious RP, only the rules and mindset of people joining.

  • There is a server up. I was playing with some people last night. So far the minges aren't any worse than my experience with HL2RP. One just joined to run up and shoot me and yell that this server sucked, but he left (and I would've just banned him if he didn't). Not sure if the rules permit me to post the server IP.

  • I decided to go ahead and help you out mate. I've ran DarkRP servers all my life, and they have been extremely successful. I've gained 556$ in donations, and was rank 46/2200 before I shut my community down. Serious DarkRP can be done, and you should do it. It will give you lots of stress though. You must be ready to attend to your server 24/7. I really mean 24/7. My ban list actually has 554 people on it, that was over a period of 4 months. There will be people who hack you, and there will be minges. Running a HL2RP or Phase Four server, for example, will (a) make you less money, (b) attract LESS minges, and (c) bore the fuck out of you. If you really feel that you are ready to run a SeriousRP, go for it. About the MOTD: Go on garrysmod.org and get one called "Simple MOTD" or something like that. It's much better, and works. Most of 'em are broken.

  • I might not be a totally impossible idea but someone who has the ability to seriously roleplay beyond raping and stabbing women amongst other creepy sadistic acts in a jail cell (you) is probably required to lead the project.
