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.

News & Announcements / Re: Admin Helper E2...
« on: June 03, 2017, 09:38 am »
Just to clarify, The admin E2 at the time of the crash in question wasn't the chip that was using explode a lot, That was in fact one of my Door E2's, Ran explode on a string every 100ms, Which I've since fixed.

And if you're wondering why I would want to explode a string that frequently, I use it to call specific lines of code and nothing else, and to make a less ops for loop.
Simple code of it, When activated by a timer, run explode(",") on the timer name, If count more than 1, run "clk"+TimerName(ExplodedString) if not simply run "clk"+timername.
I've since fixed it by moving the variables from local to global and removing the exploding of strings of it

Slow reply, but wrong.

The chip in question that I looked at was an Admin Helper E2 and had nothing todo with it running Explode on tick etc. It was running explode around (can't recall exactly) but something silly like 30-50 times a chat message + timer + 5-10 E2's on the server running it.

If he had made it do the Explode once and then simply ran through an array of stored triggers it wouldn't have been so bad. That been said I still didn't want admin E2 on the server anyway.

And the fact they stay open forever and never fail within a week.

Suggestions and Questions / Re: Switch the Radio addon
« on: May 06, 2017, 09:57 pm »
Current radio is rather unique in code.

It lets everyone always here the same audio in sequence, regardless of lag. Which is also why it cause super lag till I needed it.
Doubt this one does.

Why not simply disable use if it's gravgunned?

Dark RP - News / Information / Re: Staff applications?
« on: April 23, 2017, 11:02 am »
Punctuation is key...

We will never have an apply for staff option. Filtering through power grabbing sicophants would take more time than running the server. Servers cost money, stuff takes time to make and this is a reasonable balance. One we prefer over selling perma-weapons and custom jobs etc.

The current system is not perfect but works and there have been people promoted who never bought anything, just rare as we are not short of staff. So you CAN get onto staff without paying, you can NEVER apply or ask to join, invite only.

-Edit also the 2 roots on where likely AFK, we tend to join for bug solving these days.
