Stop using Dark RP and more creative types of mods will show their faces again. I don’t think Dark RP can really be improved. 99% of the time its a gangster vs. CP with lots of RDM and little or no RP.
If Dark RP could be improved…
Well, it really be the servers that could improve.
Votekick option :
Admins can someones times go AFK for a while, why let minges overwhelm the server you can kick them. The drawback is how it will be abused. You just know people will use it to steal jobs but if people don’t have a tendency to vote yes for every vote, it could help clean up the server.
Gun Control :
Dark RP revolves around guns. Perhaps the servers can increase the price though. 300-600 for an assualt rifle is extreamly cheap! How about 1,200$?
Keep the pistols cheap but for machine guns of death, jock up the price.
Ban hitmen, mercenaries, spies :
These classes are used as minge excuses. ‘I was paid 1$ to mow down the police’. These ‘neutral’ classes are just terrible.
Automatic kick votes :
For example, ‘Players A has commited his 20th kill in the last 10 minutes, is he RDM’ing? Does he need to go to another server?’
Players then can vote yes or no.
The only draw back is if people have a tendency to either vote yes or know even if they never seen the player on the server.
Limits to gun dealers:
This is a more complicated issue. Gun dealers are the source of weapons. The main parts of gun dealing is buying expensive shipments, dropping cheap gun labs, and having your job stolem by random demotes. Perhaps all citizens should have the ability to buy a cheap but relativly awful pistol. It could help ballance things.
But, the main thing that would save Dark RP is to change the overal mod economy. Money printers, microwaves, and automatic salleries wipe out any need to RP for money. Thats the main issue. These destroy the need to RP and make it extreamly unrealistic. Perhaps just outright banning money printers would save things.
If you have your money problems solved that easily or your busy guarding your money printers like a psychotic nutjob, why would you want to RP? Why would you want to have a seat at a nice restaurant and RP ordering food by a waiter? Why would you want to actually RP a government?
The only thing you can do is try to socialise or screw around. Dark RP supports minges with this system and its broken.
