DEFY DarkRP Beta Direction
I wanted to create this post so that everyone can understand the direction we are aiming for our Gmod Dark RP server. This post may be long but please read it fully so you understand why certain things are done in a particular way.
Many members will have addon ideas to add X addon, Y addon, or Z addon but unfortunately if the addon does not meet the requirements of purpose, need, use, or highly requested/subscribed then it will likely not be added. What does this mean? If someone suggests adding the Playable Piano addon(https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=104548572) for example then we will go through the below questions to decide whether or not it should be added.
Lets say for example someone else suggested adding the Keypad addon(https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=108424005) lets see how that compares to the Playable Piano.
So basically from the two examples above you can see how the playable piano while it is cool, it really does not serve much of a purpose within DarkRP and players may play with it for a bit and get bored. So we need to consider whether it is worth adding or not? Does it create extra download time? Will that addon create server lag?
I am sure everyone can agree that one of the most annoying things with many Dark RP servers is the download time and I would like to aim for the fastest download time possible while making the server as fun as possible. With that said unfortunately not every addons suggested will get added into the server and we will carefully pick and choose addons which serve a purpose, are needed, have a use case, or are highly requested.
We will be following some requirements for adding in jobs in as well just like our addons process. Jobs must have a purpose, need, use, and be highly requested to be added. Some of the jobs I will be listing below have already been added some are not added yet but planned or some have been added but their features are not fully added in yet. Below I will give a brief description of some jobs and their direction. Please note that the descriptions below may be missing some information.
Adverts will strictly be used for advertising services or businesses such as “/ad Come to Mark’s Gun store, next to the Police Department.” Ads will cost $1000 per ad, this high price will ensure ads are used for the correct purpose and be effective.
Mugging, raiding, hits and other rp actions do not belong in adverts. It literally makes no sense. If someone would like to mug another player they do not need to advert their action to the whole server same with raids or any other rp actions.
