    In regards to a second server. READ THIS.

    Post  ecstasy on Fri Nov 11, 2011 7:09 pm



    So, we want you to help us decide.
    Shisno and I have been discussing, quite recently, opening a second server which I will operate and control. However, we do not know which one we would rather open.
    We are currently stuck on either;
    A.) Minecraft SurvivalMP, loaded with plugins
    B.) Garrysmod Severance.



    If we decide to go with Minecraft, this would be a rather heavier task for me to control, but potentially be bigger than a garrysmod server as we can advertise it well.

    However, the server will be much harder. I will require a crew of staff to help me run it, as I have no knowledge when it comes to coding.
    So I would need coders, developers, moderators, etc just to run it.

    The server will be PVP.
    The server will be Survival mode (normal difficulty).
    The server will be a whitelist.

    Current picked out plugins for our Minecraft server, if opened, will be as followed:
    Bukkit
    CommandiConomy 8
    iConomy
    LocalShops 4.0.1
    LogBlock 1.32
    Lottery 0.7.2
    LWC 4.0.0#451
    MineUp
    SignColours 1
    TownyAdvanced 0.77.1.0
    WeatherRestrictions 2.1
    WorldEdit 4.7
    WorldGuard 5.3
    Citizens 1.1.2
    Lavafurnace 1.43
    Landmarks 0.2
    MapMarkers 0.3.3
    Multiverseportals 2.1-b295
    MultiInv 2.4.2
    properTime 1.9.0
    Vault 1.1.0-b66
    AntiPvPLogout



    If we decide to go with Severance, it would be much easier on my part.
    Granted, it would still require staff to help me run it, but a much smaller amount.
    I would need maybe one developer/coder, and depending on the size of our playerbase, 3-4 administrators.

    This server would typically be self run, as plugins aren't really required.
    However, here are some minor details.

    The server will be somewhat heavily related to zombies. However, not like typical L4D themed Sev. servers. There will be no "Specials", just normal zombies. These zombies bite. You get bitten, you are dead. Maybe. A cure is currently being designed, to try and combat the infection. If you are already infected, and are undead (aka you are already a zombie), you are gone for good. However, if the cure is designed before you are dead, you may have a chance of survival. However, not everyone will have access to the cure. And who knows, maybe the cure will just make things worse. Only time will tell.
    Also, there will be "carriers". Carriers will not become infected with the disease, however, they can infect others. This would typically be through sexual activity, or through open sores. Usually, however, if you are a carrier, you will know.



    If you want this to happen, then here's a request.


    Yes, we need donations.
    A second server will cost an additional 20 bucks,
    and we need 20 bucks right now to start either one of the servers.
    The faster we can raise 20 bucks, the quicker the second server will begin to operate.

    Thanks for reading, everyone.

    I'd love to see DRP have a Severance. Very Happy I'd want it to have TnB though.

    Although I am leaning a bit more towards severance, Each server has its pros and cons.

    Minecraft would have a bigger playerbase, but eventually people would get bored of it.


    Severance on the other hand is a long-lasting RP, but the playerbase might Borderline, Hemorrhage, And even die, if any is made at all.

    The biggest probleam is this part. Since DRP's Hl2Rp server haves very hard time upkeeping itself already. Beside that I'm neutral about them. But I'd suggest stil not to make either.

    This.

    I'd love to see another server up, but the server already seems to be a bit strained financially. I'd rather have us have one server which we can watch after then two which we're strugging to keep up with.

    Not if it's an off-base MINECRAFT server! It will attract minecraft users who don't even know about dominus. Therfor, we shall have more members and they'll become interesting in Steam and Gmod!...So like...Yay for minecraft and stuff.

    We've decided to go with severance.

    Now, on to the point of where people are talking about it not working because Dominus is already struggling, heres what I have to address that.

    Outlands is slowly dying. Its not HL2RP anymore. That is why it is dying. We're losing people daily, because of how the server is progressing, or, well, regressing. If it keeps going on the current path that it is going, outlands is going to die, without a doubt. In my own eye, opening a second server can be beneficial, because you will get a different group of players. I can honestly pinpoint numerous issues as to why the server is going to die.

    I have a few recommendations

    **We have like, a special group of ppl (6 male icly 6 female icly) who are like, chosen for a project, and those peeps become like, say, special infected, it is the player's choice to be friendly or enemy.

    (Last time this was tried it was almost successful, I was one of the participants, and I was mutated into some assassin...)

    I also recommend we use THIS map

    http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=87727

    it's big, it's dark, it's perfect.

    Necro urban seems alright. We could probably find a better one for RP, though.

    The map we will be using is rp_necro_downtown. It is the darkest map I have ever played on. So dark that in places you can't physically see anything.
    There are to be NO special infected. At all.

    I have a map from back when I was in Nova, It's called Rp_necro_downtown_new It's based off the map Rp_downtown, unfortunately, this map cannot be found on Garrysmod.org. However I uploaded the map to mediafire

    -snipped due to the damn forum not letting me paste it, I can pm the link to you if you want it.

    Check it out, It's a pretty large map, has a sewers and subway. A 3 story police station, and several apartment complexes. Lots of places for loot.

    Edit: Well This is necro_downtown_new.... Not sure if there are alot of differences.

    Why'd we even do the aftermath in the first place for Outlands? I feel like it ruined everything.

    I must remind people, that if you want this server to happen, you guys gotta help me pay for it, I'm having to pay my own personal expenses, and soon enough I won't have enough to pay for ONE server at all.

    This is why I reccomd stil to forget the entire second server idea to be forgotten.
    Chances are whit example: Denmark (That little country north of Germany) tryd to take Germany by military force. Chances are? They start and get beated quickly.

    I hav an event planned out that I will bring forward to Shisno which will set things right. A climax of climaxes. In my eyes, DRP has had 7 seasons. This event would be the season 7 finale.

    Its not going to be like Chancer's.
    You aren't going to be some militarized asshole who demoralizes everyone else. You're going to be a citizen stuck in a city, infested with zombies, where teamwork is crucial for survival.
