  • [release] [b](old) BlackRP (old)[/b] [tab]Information:[/tab] I'm working in a little team on new roleplay gamemode called BlackRP. We are using DarkRP as base, but soon you won't notice that anymore. I'm primary designer of project and we are currently adding stuff we have in mind (secret yet :P), but we will listen to ideas, so post them here to help us revive real roleplay like in Gmod9. [/release] [release] [b]BlackRP[/b] [tab]Information:[/tab] [highlight] Using DarkRP as a base was bad idea. Currently remaking BlackRP from nothing. More information later.

  • [QUOTE=Janizu99]Will this be another DarkRP clone?[/QUOTE] Not clone like ones that are posted everyday on gmod.org just because someone renamed medic to healer or ect. This will be different from old DarkRP. I should say that it is not modification of DarkRP, that it is new rp that uses DarkRP as base for coding.

  • [QUOTE=Janizu99]By the way, wouldn't this fit better to Gamemodes forum than here?[/QUOTE] Hmm, maybe. But this is not gamemode yet and i'm hoping for ideas so i made it here. After this project is ready i will post it in gamemodes forum.
  • Interesting. Will it have a interface? Kind of like the new versions of DarkRP have. Or will it still be all text based?

  • [QUOTE=Str4t0s]Will it have stealing, kfc and the bikes?[/QUOTE] Stealing - If you mean stealing from other players homes. Yes, we are creating less restricted Prop protection. kfc - Do you mean Kentucky Fried Chicken? :D Dunno, we already have new food sources. Bikes - That could be hard to do, but if more people wants bikes, i can implement bikes that someone posted on gmod.org and add him at credits. [b]Edit:[/b] [QUOTE=Str4t0s]Please, no more darkrp shitty clones.[/QUOTE] It may be clone, but not shitty. [b]Edit:[/b] As i said, i should have typed "We use DarkRP as base." not "This is a modification of DarkRP."

  • It will win, as long as it's not a DarkRP clone. If it is a clone that renames a few things, changes values, damage, weapons, etc then it will DIE HARD! But if not, WIN WIN WIN!! However, players? Another matter! You will need a lot of servers and threads on, say, GU fourms. You'll need someone or something to get this into Gmod players' heads as good.

Then our BlackRP is definetely not a clone. We are adding new stuff and removing some old. Well i tell some things that are already added, not all yet. /buyradio - Spawns Radio that plays music from hl2 /buyvender - Spawns Cola vender /License <ply> <license> - Gives license for someone to allow something

  • Don't base it off DarkRP. Now, I'm not saying the gamemode is shitty but it's not a good idea to base it off because it is heavily bloated. I recommend using a base like LightRP.
  • [QUOTE=creec]/License <ply> <license> - Gives license for someone to allow something[/QUOTE] Would it disallow use of said item without the license? As an example: If someone wanted to drive a vehicle, they would require the license to spawn and/or enter the vehicle? And if so, would it have a way of checking to see who has which licenses? Or are you saying that having the license would allow the person to allow "something".

Cops could have some device wich scans if user has license or not, or players could have way to show that they have the license (ie. "/showlicense car" would print into chat "Jani has car license/doesn't have car license").

  • I hope it will succeed. My Idea's (Taken from an old GM9 Server): [b]A proper payment system.[/b] : No millions in minutes or pittance in hours type shit. [b]A proper Voting System[/b] : /votekick, /votecop, /votemayor [u][b]NPC Gun Shop[/b][/u] : This is important, so as to stop random DM shit. Gun's must require a licence, which will cost the equivalent of about 2 hours Gameplay Salary. [b]Cop and Mayor Licence[/b] : Cop test can be given by the mayor, who can grant cop licences. Mayor test given by Admins, who can grant license's. [b] No vehicle licence [/b] That's not a good idea. [b] Map [/b] : Oviscity_gmc_4 would be the best [b] Player Slots[/b] : 20 is preferable. [b] A GOOD WEBSITE AND COMMUNITY [/b] : This is [u][b]ESSENTIAL[/b][/u] to survive. You need forums, help pages and Feedback support. Just my idea's. Anyone who played on GM9 RP will probably recognize them. I'll PM you to add me on STEAM if you want. [b] Also [/b] : I know you are using DarkRP as a base, but change as much as you can, another Dark RP "clone" server just won't do. Don't be afraid to start from scratch, these things take time.

  • Your project will FAIL cause you use DarkRP base. I'm working on my own RP gamemode made from SCRATCH. It won't have lots of files to download and will be simple to use. Also wrong section.

  • [b]How about you just take sandbox, and make it less obvious that it's just a sandbox.[/b] I think sandbox is the best gamemode for [i]fun[/i] roleplay. Let players make rules.
  • [QUOTE=creec]Currently it is just a paper like this: If i type "/license creec p228" I get paper that has next written on it:[/QUOTE] So what your saying is that it's just like /write in DarkRP? I was hoping it would have some coding so that way it would block use of said item, or at least have the ability to alert the cops if someone is using an item without the license without having to go and look at the paper, read it, see the person is breaking a law, turn around to arrest them and see they are half way across the map. :mad: Of course I'm speaking from a side-line point of view, I would never allow someone to leave while I read it, but that's besides the point. An old server I used to play on had a script like that, it allowed you to use the items, but cops and higher ranked people could type a command when you were in range and it would check you for all the licenses you have.

  • [QUOTE=creec][b]Currently[/b] it is just a paper like this: [/QUOTE] You should notice my every word, i use them wisely.
  • Then notice how I did not care if it was current or not, as of the time of that post, the information given said that it was: just like /write in DarkRP. Current does not mean it will be changed. Since you claim it will not be a copy of DarkRP, I voiced my concern that-that is the same thing as DarkRP but with another name.

  • We have new tactic. We are making gaemode we want it to be. And then play together with our team (4 people) and wait for someone to join. Then we just change things to make playing better.

  • There shouldn't be any mayor at all, cops should be voted by the players but should also be able to get impeached by the players. There should be no hunger, stamina, thirst or any other need.

  • If it works nice and doen't lag like the shitty dark rp servers do id be glad to join and rp with you guys.

  • If your going to do it, you need to do something unique. There's already too much rp gamemodes as it is so you have to do something never before seen.
