Why is it only me that seems to think Kuromeku could make worse gamemodes? Anybody else agree they’re the worst gamemodes possibly EVER? I’ve given their server 2 chances, both made me rage like a fucking gorilla in the end.
Attempt Number 1
The first time I tried joining a Kuromeku server I was pretty excited. It took about 20 minutes to download and 3 attempts to connect with my internet, I get up to 2.5mb/ps on this Verizon Fios plan, and yet it takes me in the very LEAST 2 attempts to connect to any server on gmod.
Well it took a long time to connect, I lagged out the first time, rejoined again and had a hard time stumbling around trying to figure out what to do. The first thing that I had happen to me was I sprinted across the plaza to the 45th apartments (Map was Rp_c18). A guard saw me apparently, knocked me out and waited till I woke up. I asked him “why did you do that” and he killed me.
They had OOC enabled at the time (Pfft like there’s any roleplay going on anyway) with a 60 second message delay. SIXTY. So you had to wait 60 seconds every message you sent over OOC. I asked why I was just killed for asking why I was knocked unconscious for my unknown crime. They told me to check the rules and forum guides which required me to join their shitty forum.
You can’t join the forum from their ingame browser (sucks) so I decided to exit gmod and give his RP script another try after I checked out everything on his site. There was apparently a ton of rules about what citizens can and can’t do and what combine can and can’t do. I went back in and got arrested for punchwhoring because I was mad I just wasted 4 hours of my life, said bullshit and got banned for leaving the server when I was arrested.
Attempt Number 2
This server had 400 models, nearly 400 textures, and plenty of lua files for fluff. Took MORE than 30 minutes to download.
Their new server called “Experiment” is apparently ruleless. It’s like DarkRp…but 100 times worse. Anyone can do whatever the fuck they want. It only takes three punches to kill someone. I got really lucky and found a few nice things, $3000 and a fiveseven for example.
Before that it was absolute hell, being randomly killed by people in their invinci-suits running around with P90’s. Eventually I befriended 2 people and we ran around mugging people, giving them a chance to give us 1/3 of their money instead of killing them straight out. We ended up killing most of them anyway but it was fun for a while and I had an entire session where I didn’t die for a couple hours.
I was not aware though that when you died you lost a PERCENTAGE of your money, meaning if you got 100k you lose something around 90k when you die. So I had 6k and lost 5k from one death after a guy raided me and my buddies. The suits you can buy are the suits from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and reduce damage done to you by eighty percent. Do the math to figure out how much health that gives someone with 100 hp.
So I died, lost a good amount of money but tried again because I still knew those two people. Found a glock, and that made me VERY happy (You buy weapons in shipments, shipments of five. So you can’t just buy a gun for yourself since nobody ever actually shares the weapons they buy).
I went to my locker, lockers in Kuromeku can hold a certain amount of items and money so when you die you don’t lose what’s in the locker. I took out my pitifully small stash of money, bought 2 things of ammo (one of them was taken by a passerby wanting some free stuff, they remind me of Seagulls) and equipped my gun after loading the 2 mags of 9mm rounds.
Very shortly after somebody ran up to me, killed me with one shot to the head, I lost ALL of my money, lost my glock, lost my ammo, lost my buisiness suit…it was too much to deal with. I quit.
I didn’t realize this was such a massive wall of uninteresting text, sorry I just had to let it out.
