No. I disagree.
If you pull a child off the streets who wants to grow up and be a programmer and tell him to make a gamemode from scratch with no prior knowledge then it’s clear to see they (in 99% of cases) wouldn’t be able to.
If you pull a child off the streets who wants to grow up and be a programmer and tell him to play Garry’s Mod on a DarkRP server and then edit the script to change it to his liking he would (in 99% of cases) be able to make minor to major changes.
So which scenario seems better to you? Chances are he’ll go off and attempt to make his own gamemode now, fail, and then give up altogether. You may think that’s right as you don’t want him around but just consider it.
Plus, he probably wont even learn. He’ll end up just copying the files in the end because he can’t figure out how to do it.
Stick with editing DarkRP; make it as good as you can, and soon enough all the code will be yours and you’ll have the same result anyway.
Whoever said DarkRP should be excavated then you can have my hate remark - the amount of people that learn Lua from DarkRP is much more than your elitist role-play’s that are private/sold. Although most servers turn into minge heavens it’s simply an experience. Who cares if they want to role-play but not as seriously as you do?
We all have opinions sir, and that is mine.
