Something's gotta happen
« on: May 18, 2017, 04:42:39 am »
As we all should have noticed, the servers (if they are running at all) got quite lonely and the forum is deserted. Right now there are only 2 CSS servers on, and CSS is the dying one of the counter strikes. If I'm not wrong JZ is pretty busy in real life and I hope he is doing well. So our coding mind and server maintenance is out of service (pun intended).

Let's sum up with a presidential quote: NOT GOOD.

Personally I don't want to give up but my coding skills are mainly limited to console bindings in CSS. So I can only provide ideas - no solutions.
One of those ideas is to extend our game foundation. A game would be good, that is:

  • quite cheap
  • hl-engine-based
  • has multible game options (mods, ...)
  • non-competitive
  • low ressource demands

So one game came to my mind: GARRY'S MOD

We could do some usual trashtalk, be creative and build some BS, mess up with each other/bots.
So many possibilities. No need for a 100 tick server, no dedicated server (I think).

Please let me/us know what you think about this: Pros/Cons, ideas, experiences, suggestions, warnings, ...
This might be our last chance if I see the donations inflow.

Ok, I am gonna revamp my comment since I have some time right now. Overall it sounds like a good idea. I am personally not a programmer but a model maker, so I am not sure how hard it would be to code a server into an RPG style gameplay. But this is a good idea, and I would personally love to do this. I know that the models used right now on the servers originally came from GMOD (if I am not mistaken, correct me if I am) so we would be able to reuse them.I am not sure about the size of teams, how would that work? Also, it would be an interesting concept to have 2 teams of player-controlled, so that it will be PVP, one zombie, another human. This would make more space for more people to play, and have fun. On a side note, a number of people or AI per team is something else we would have to figure out. Also, the guns and weapons. I am positive, that the indigenous coders will be able to make it so that the abilities will work, but what about the gun system?

I am going to have to go now, and I'll finish this comment later, but those are my thoughts on it for now.

<The Sea>
Life is a rise on a ship
The ship goes up and down
Yet the Sea carries the ship
So in the end, who is the true master of life?
The ship, or the sea?

It is a brutal thing. And most can agree
That without it, none would ever be.

It is a caretaker, a beginning, a start
We all came from the sea, and we will are return.

I do not know when, but I do this
I will join my brothers in arm's, in the sea.
