Dark RP - News / Information / Wire Edits & Transparency
« on: July 20, 2018, 08:57 am »
People keep telling me our wire works different, or we've changed this, changed that or whatever.

I think it might help if you knew what we edited, so here is a full list of Wiremod modifications we have made & what they do.

To the base Wirefolder:
Code: [Select]
wire/lua/entities/gmod_wire_expression2/chat.lua
>Social Spy hook to stop reading of admin/rp chat.
wire/lua/entities/gmod_wire_expression2/init.lua
>Single line edit just to set Entity info for logging, nothing more.

These are not edit to Wire folder,but part of our GameMode addons.
Code: [Select]
E2 Functions removed
>setColor,setMaterial,setSkin,setRenderMode,setAlpha,setSubMaterial,setBodyGroup
E2 function edits, nerfs or permission changes
>applyForce,propFreeze,setPos,setMass,entity,freezeProp,deleteProp,manipulateProp
Gates too
>Same as E2 function table edits, emptied there equivalent gate.
Additions to E2
>ByB DarkRP functions that we've always had.
No other edits, we don't change EGP refresh rates, we run latest wire from GIT and we are not responsible for errors in WireMod itself, report them to who is relevant.

We are running the latest Wire, with NO relevant code edits, 1 if statement in chat.lua for Social Spy and 1 in init.lua for logging support.

I agree :)

Plus the bank building is super nice and other folk should be able to use it. Bank building is that new glass fronted one yea?

We'll be keeping paid admins, as im WAY to frigging lazy to do actual ranks.
All previous, current, existing, french, croatian and living admins will get a couple weeks free.
If the servers still populated after 2 weeks, it kinda means "YAY! Summer ByB fun!", at which point we'll decide. If it's not, then nobody has wasted money.
Sound good?

Rules:
I REALLY wanted to nuke them, and was going to ignore the poll... But we will be keeping them, however I might get bored at work and butcher some of the more 'ludicrous" ones.

Can we focus more upon more creative solutions and customizes? I cant say last rebirth was so damn inventive, why?
- Arie f4 menu
- Non way to have inventory (Trust me) There is a good reasons why inventory is kinda obligated)
- TDM cars on a freaking downtown map.
- Go for Rp_downtown_tits_v1 thats map are now changing the downtown community. Trust me, I've been very active within darkrp pasts 3 years.

Its sad to say this and very sad... but in reality donating is the future of success, its like loot box. We need to create the community addictive as possible, so color coordination, unboxing, coin flips to loot boxes aka / pointshop 2.

What we need are
- Try to keep off scriptfodder but unless you got a nice bugdet or having some coders on non paid roll, you can achieve that. What you guys got is beckibox which are a very nice feature you cant find, well I created this box and have it public. Regardless, what i'm saying. Becki Box is something unique which I loved you guys for.

Try to box mainstream and uniqe things in addictive ordinations, and have a better structure of staff and you will success. Have you guys thought about migrating to new system, example IPB? I have migrated smf to invisions forum before without any issues. Let's be honest, smf is outdated and non friendly anymore. 

EDIT: Sometimes in life reboots is whats needed.

Sali... Babe...

I really agree with you so much here, you seem to actually understand the stupidity of server running.

Donating is the future to success yes, people are oddly addicted to spending money for things like this.
However i DO NOT WANT TO PROFIT anymore... We could give this money in some shared system to supers? But I really don't want a single penny of it. ByB money helped me a LOT but I don't want nor need it anymore.
If you can think of a nice loot box system with minimal effort I'd consider it. Minimal meaning we/I don't want to recode the entire thing. A pointshop/scratchcard system from scriptfodder we can implement with minimal code would be fine.

Keep off scriptfodder was the original ByB model, which I and Weasel spent so much time doing. It works, but for a loot box theme we'd likely need it a bit.

Staff remake is definitely needed. But a new forum I really cba.

I removed most people Sali, but I've added back your account "claims" we can talk when I'm at work and bored this week. It would be interesting to talk I think. Though beckibox was not the only thing ByB made... most DarkRP features since gmod10 where 'appropriated' from ByB with Falco ;)

Well, this is kinda a reply to "Speak English" when he said he'd pay to turn the server on for summer...

And I was like "Wait, we have it paid for summer? Just hit GO and that's it".

Any change to the game,rules or forum messes over that simplicity.

This is not a true rebirth, but a screw it and hit launch server as it's FREE and SIMPLE to do so.
We have paid for the server the entire time it's been offline, because why not? - It's paid till Sept 4th.
IF IT ACTUALLY stays populated then  I guess we'd organise something... Nobody gives a fudge about money so maybe some non profit council of elders rubbish? whatever.

I'd hand over ByB legally to someone if it was actually populated and active.
I'm way to busy with Work currently to care for a game server so passing it on would be fine.

Yes.

I will prefer RP4 last backup to be revived but I guess rebirth is more modern.


I do too, but lazy m8... Hit GO and done on rebirth ;)

Bring it back, however don't wipe the rules completely and rather revise over them.
For example, the base building rules. Bases on the ByB servers have always been different and better than other servers (in my opinion). It made it somewhat fair for both the defender and attacker and made it almost impossible to construct bases with over powering angles (like small tight angles). Job rules were great and enabled great role play. However, some changes which were done to, for example, the BMD, should be revised.

Honestly, the rules back in 2012-2015 were fantastic. Sure they were long, but not as long as they currently stand and they were, as said, fantastic. ByB's rules allowed for a different type of gameplay compared to other servers I feel, but that's just my nostalgia talking.

The second iteration of Rebirth was amazing. It had decent addons and development was good but it died because bugs were piling up and weren't being fixed, as well as no new content was really being added that were requested by the community. Not to mention the whole "paying for admin" thing pissed new players off, especially how some of them were abusive.

If a new Rebirth were to pop up, I personally think a new map should be considered - a good, popular map that is somewhat generic to the DarkRP community now. Instead of picking a random, but good, map that no one really has ever played.

Also, personally I think that the current situation with ranks should be reconsidered and organized. I dislike the whole "contributor" rank. If anything at least change it's name from "contributor" because I, and I bet many others, interpret that they contributed in some way with donating to the server, rather than actually developing for the server and well, being a developer. I do think that payed admin should fall away, and there should be either one or two admin ranks. Players should be considered to be promoted to an admin more than what has been considered in the past years - and not primarily promoted on the fact that the player spent time with staff members on TeamSpeak or Discord.

Keeping it short and clean. Yes, bring it back. No, don't wipe the rules completely but revise over them.


Everyone wants a new map or new content...

Keep your paragraphs/essays out of this crap please. This is a simple "Hit Go and whatever" thread for the holidays. Ok.

We don't want a new map, we don't want to revise rules, or content ... Screw that, you can do it all later for 9$ a month ok.

Server is READY TO GO! ... But we are moving the hardware/IP for better performance.
This means a new IP, so we figured it's best to do it before we open for real kinda thing.

Server will be online Saturday 14th of July at some random time - OK!



Let us say Saturday Evening UK time? The servers VHD is transfer and im busy morning time.

So we'll likely get it online tomorrow evening. VIVA LA BYB!

Won't be reading all that yet, but to point of tools.

Thought smeg: they're blocked mainly to supporter as they're easily abused NOT for money making. We don't do crap for money making much, you don't see permanent weapons and ban probation on sale dobyou.?
This is a point I'm fed up of argueing and won't change my mind on... That been said I'm too busy, so any root can change the settings/rules and I won't mind.

Ps: you mention material, perfect example. Limiting this increases FPS of players and is one of the most widely used tools to abuse other than e2.

If it was my choice is block material fully like we used to way back in the day. It's only enable now as I buckled.
