Howdy all, hopefully all of this will make sense, I am not the best at explaining stuff, so if you have any questions please say.
I know DarkRP is frown upon by many, but I think I got something good her, so hear me out on this please.
First, a little about me, I have been playing Gmod for years, love role play, tried to make a server back in 2010-failed, but back then I had nothing to support it.
Always wanted to have my own server and make it a friendly and fair place, always disliked admin abuse, unfriendly owners, staff and communities.
I am working as a carer for people with dementia, so I like to think I have a caring nature in general, always try to be friendly and patient with people I meet in real life and on the interwebs, so I hope that should show I am not some hot headed bad guy.
Sadly, due to my shifts, I work 2 weekends every month on 8-8 shifts, but I am pretty much focused on my server and new ideas for it when ever possible.
I am not making a server for money or anything related, already spent about 200£ on various things to do with it, mainly scripts and help, as I am not expierenced in the way that most server owners are, I am learning all I can though, but it is going slow.
Which is why I am here, I would like to see if anyone would like to join me on my crusade to make a nice, fair, serious, unqiue DarkRP server.
Due to my lack of skill, I have went with DarkRP as it is so simple to use, but will try my best to make my server serious/fun/fair instead of another cops vs robbers with people running around as batman and spiderman.
Got a huge list of ideas and all sorts, but will try to sell the server the best I can in a short paragraph.
The server will have jobs that are massively based on role play, jobs that are fun but not unrealistic to the real world, trying to make every single job have a unique way of making money while being fun still, will make all the models for every job look realistic for the purpose of the job. The law will play a massive part on the server, the law has more power on my server than any server I have been on, purely to make it harder to commit crimes and harder to just run around shooting up the place while the police are unable to protect people. While you could raid a bank and make a lot of money, it won’t be simple, easy or unrealistic, you will have to prepare and you will have to be skilled. Guns will be hard to get, cars won’t be spammed all around, you would be classed as wealthy on the server if you had 80k-120k, nothing is cheap or easy to get. There is a massive theme on RPG, lots of things to make your game play expierence fun without holding a gun ever, one of the best things to me is that the map I am using will be edited and made to be the most enjoyable you hopefully will ever play, a lot to interact on the server and a lot to do.
I am sure that I have missed a lot to try and make it look unique and not just another DarkRP server, but will say again, making money will never be a focus, going to spend another 200-250£ on it, want it to be a unqiue expierence for anyone that comes to play on it.
So, would like to ask everyone what they think would be fun on a server but also what would you hate to have a server.
Of course following the theme of a serious role play with the law enforcement being in power more than the average DarkRP server.
If you would like to join to help test scripts, jobs or anything than that would be great.
If you got ideas to say then please do.
Basically, if you got any ideas, then please say, it is very difficult to come up with stuff by myself and then have no one to judge my ideas, so really would like some serious role players to throw ideas around with:)
