A step out of the norm, map wise!
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:07 pm »
Nowadays every GMod server, hosting a semi-serious RP experience is on Downtown. Although its efficient; etc. undergrounds secret doors, why not possibly trying out a different map. Rp_genova_v-2 , is the map. There are about 2-4 versions of the map, but that one would be most efficient for BYB due to its small size.

The thing is the downtown map brings in players because it's popular and people know it. Not to mention everyone already has their dupes saved on the current map. Changing maps would probably only mess that up and kill population like fire on bugs.

Yeah, like all new map suggestions, the only way this is gonna happen is if we decide to open up another RP server.
DO NOT send me a friend request unless you are a super or above.  I'm done folks!

It's been confirmed that the map will not be changing anytime soon. Currently (sadly) downtown_v4c and downtown_v4c_v2 are the only two that basically top all of darkrp. (Seen some servers start using downtown_v4c_v4 which is crap/badly optimised).

Which is the sad thing about darkrp now days, a custom map that isn't downtown won't get the amount of hits wanted.

Blame the current darkrp community

If we changed this the population would be discouraged to join, they'd need to re download a new map, have none of the bases they spent time building as well it would trouble the Roots that would need to replace npcs and find new places for the pd and bank.

From the quick look I had at the map, its a very different style to normal which could be seen as a good thing but not at this point in time, rebirth has only just started to become relatively stable with its population so its an unacceptable risk.

The map itself is also a bit of a odd design and if we were going to want to use it would need a bunch of tweaking and frankly that's a lot of effort when it likely would fail to populate
