• Looking for the rare, elusive populated builder friendly DarkRP server
    18 replies, posted
I really, really want to play DarkRP, but every server I join now is just dumbed down shoot 'em up crap full of trigger happy jerks and abusive staff. 90% of the servers I join have most basic building tools like precision, stacker and even smartsnap disabled or not present at all, and for a guy who plays the gamemode to build the best, most precise, functional base he can, it's endlessly frustrating. Now that the rant is done, I'll get to the point. Does anyone know of a good server that isn't focused on the shiny new gun packs and the donator positions? I jsut want to join, build a base and defend it, I don't want to be crippled by no tools or donator tools that aren't worth paying for. Any help would reeally be appreciated.

I refuse to believe that good DarkRP is dead.
It is. From what I remember, the last time I played 2 years ago, there's Basewars servers you might like.
The last darkRP server I knew like this died ~2 years ago.
There are obviously people who want this though, seeing how all of you replied within two hours of this being posted. Why do these servers keep dying when they go up?
I hosted a pro builder buildrp server a year or two ago (precision alignment, all of those types of tools _ e2). People stopped joining. Kinda hard to justify spending money each month for something that no one joins.
I play on this server quite a lot: [url]http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/162.248.91.32:27015/[/url] Has most of the basic building and wire stuff available (precision, snap, etc.) but lacks more complex stuff you usually get on build servers such as precision alignment or E2 but given that its dark RP the second one isn't really a surprise. Prop limit of 100-150, gate limit of about the same (separate limits for each category but you are unlikely to hit them). Most wiremod stuff is available. Off the top of my head I think most physics stuff is disabled and so are sound emitters. In terms of addons it uses M9K and TDM. There a a few small prop packs and some models. I think there are a few VIP jobs but they go as far as pro thief (slightly faster cracking/picking) and pro hitman (allowed to take hits on government, normal hitmen aren't). Unfortunately it also has loading music which I couldn't convince the owner to remove. Think that covers most of the important stuff. If anyone finds anything else please share since I would like a server to play on in the EU but there isn't a single one worth loading into in my experience.
I play on Debonair Dark RP [url]http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/74.91.116.138:27015/[/url]. They have all the basic tools and it is quite populated during the day. The staff is very nice and if you are being trolled or killed while trying to build they will help you. The admins treat everyone the same so no Paid Admins having contort over the server and VIP's having special treatment. plus if you actually are a good builder, they will give adv. dupe and more tools so you can save your creation. I actually just got adv. dupe today from the owner after he saw my elaborate gun shop. You can pretty much unlock the tools if you are a good builder, VIP not required. Hope to see you on as their community is not cancerous like other servers. [highlight](User was permabanned for this post ("Advertising Gimmick" - NiandraLades))[/highlight]

On my server I am very equal on things, like everyone vip/not gets the same tools and when I get staff make sure that they treat vips and regular users the same.

This is not a "look at me, my severs shitter than yours " thread.
Ya know, I'm going to get flamed for this and some idiot will reply with "OMGAWD BUY ADMIN SERVARS" etc etc as usual, but... Many things are wrong with my server and it's been online for ... now I think about it ByB might be the oldest DarkRP server still online, we kinda kick started the admin/supporter model so a fair reason folk hate us. Anyway my honest review of my own server: We actually have a really decent building community on our servers. There is also an extensive E2 community but that is supporter only. Sadly you do only get 50 props/100 for supporter. The only real building tools we have blocked for supporter is a few wire tools (E2/EGP have to be limited for ease of life really) & material tool as people are dicks with materials I'm afraid. However easy precision/stacker and stuff are on there. I'd even add tools for building if people requested them, not that I know of any good ones we don't have on there anyway. We don't use any shiny gun packs, script fodder shit... a total of 1 weapon model, 3 png files, 1 9 second audio file and whatever crap Mad Cow might make you download. It's surprisingly a very sparse server with extremely strict rules on base building though. There might be a 500kb texture pack workshop file added atm, not sure. Been playing around with a custom made drug mode (not drugs, medicine. Healing pills etc). The donated admins are a pain in the arse, but they're very restrained compared to most servers. Most of the donated admins report other admins in the hope of kissing enough arse to get promoted to a real admin etc. Kinda funny, not sure I could play as a regular player, least not for true RP, on a donated admin server. I mean as I said they're fairly reigned in but you do get the bad egg/moron who doesn't realise he's going to lose his admin within 3 days and waste his money. But the important thing is they are punished for doing shit. I think most folk just buy admin to build in noclip these days. There's none of that physgun throwing players around(Got annoying, so they can't physgun you anyway), admins randomly slaying you etc. People here will disagree but login and see before deciding that. Not much is as annoying than some arsehole admin dragging you through the map. Not sure why I made this post, it will only get flamed and probably isn't what you're looking for, but I'm sat waiting for an appointment and this is possibly the longest forum post I've ever written from my phone. I just get insanely impressed by what some folk have built on my server. And the thing I love is that I know it's truly theirs, as we've never had adv dupe upload enabled. So ramble ramble, as I said it's got all the building tools for all players and if you find those fun few members of the community who make these outstanding bases you could fit in and have fun.
Honestly, I don't get why people hate your paid admin system, considering that no one is forced to player on your servers nor do all servers offer similar paid features.
[QUOTE=KatNotDinner;47785549]Honestly, I don't get why people hate your paid admin system, considering that no one is forced to player on your servers nor do all servers offer similar paid features.[/QUOTE] because people want to play with half decent admins instead of retarded squeakers with rich/indifferent parents
[QUOTE=legendofrobbo;47785839]because people want to play with half decent admins instead of retarded squeakers with rich/indifferent parents[/QUOTE] And I want to play with mature players who don't judge an admins entire life based on how deep there voice is. That whole "Gagged for squaker" shit irks me.
[QUOTE=Pantho;47787227][B]I want to play with mature players[/B][/QUOTE] lmao why are you on darkRP then but seriously its not their voice thats the issue here, its that your playing on a server where small children get power over everybody else and we all know how responsible children are when offered power and responsibility yes there are exceptions to that rule but they are pretty rare, like "searching for a golden paper clip in a 44 gallon drum of liquid horse shit" rare
[QUOTE=Pantho;47787227]And I want to play with mature players who don't judge an admins entire life based on how deep there voice is. That whole "Gagged for squaker" shit irks me.[/QUOTE] Chances are if their voice is extremely high then they aren't "mature" enough to be in a position of power and get thrown off by someone calling their mom a whore (aka going on a screaming spree/power trip). Not to mention most players don't enjoy listening to an annoying kid. Now granted I had a rule on my community. Put simply - you had a high voice and majority found you annoying, muted. Wasn't an auto-mute if you had a high-pitched voice but if you kept screaming/being annoying after being asked to stop/wouldn't shut up then yea, we gagged. Regardless most people after getting off work don't want to have to put up with listening to a squeaker, especially one who thinks them self better than said older player.
If you just want to build, why not play Sandbox or something based around constructing things?

Any server that limits who can be admin, who can do what, who has the freedom to talk and be judged equally based on voice pitch should not be played on. It's completely impossible to distinguish between those who have deep voices early and those who don't. There word on age is the only thing you have to go on.
