How would YOU improve DarkRP
As a general rule, facepunch dislikes/hates darkrp in its current state.
What I have decided to do is this, use the DarkRP base (due to the simpleness of modification) and make the best experience possible.
Anyway, past all that, what do you guys think will make the best possible DarkRP experience? I will start off and please reply with improvements etc. and if it gets to a good enough point I may make this into an actual thing
Anyone who doesn’t work for the government this includes anyone who wants to be a thief, dishwasher salesman etc.
Anyone in the Metropolitan police force. They Enforce the laws and prevents crimes(what many servers will call “RDM” etc. See administration section below)
Any government worker including mayor etc. deals with licenses, new laws etc.
3 Roles in hierarchy:
Staff – Mainly there to help new players with questions etc.
Developer – Implement new mods & features
Overseer – Make sure other staff don’t abuse, also handles the monetary side of the server.
Rather then conventional server rules like RDM (police deal with the murder) greet new player and discuss basic RP things such as /me.
This will create an environment where police have to RP instead of Admins policing the server.
Also no adverting mugs etc. Because of that being just stupid.
Have donations as exactly that, something being donated to the server and not being a sale of a product such as ingame cash or an OP job with a laser guided, nuke firing minigun.
Possibly cosmetic advantages such as a donator tag on text chat but nothing to advantage them above other players in RP
Get a job working at Asda or make an Asda, remove printers and make money making a more social experience encouraging conversation with people. Add suppliers where you buy shipments of products from them; an example being £3,000 for 10 laptops a tech company to sell in your store.
Or buy items from the pharmacy to cook drugs, make it so player interaction and buying entities of players a way to earn money.
possibly add an online market place for upper recievers, barrels etc online for an expensive price, but no license check, and add licenses required to buy a lower/ any full made gun off a gunsmith. This gives gun dealers a job and if you make them have to collect a shipment from the PD or something, it also forces them to leave the base.
Anyway, that’s all I can think of (for now) Please respond with any ideas/improvements, and if this gets to a point where I am happy with it I may make this into a server.
