PostSubject: What will you do to help the server?   Thu Mar 21, 2013 10:02 pm

We all know about our scripting issues in West Coast Life, since the Boeile days (weren't good at all.)
So I think it's time everyone had a chance to discuss what else would you try to improve the server with? Something everyone is able to do.The roleplay is fair in the server, but not everyone knows even the basic terms of roleplaying in our server so I think it would be nice to see players help new players learn to roleplay.Maybe you know how to work with image editing, like some of our players to help promote our server with banners made by you with the IP on and the factions.Also some players are able to actually record in-game roleplay with no lag by using Fraps, which would be nice to see more videos of our server.
http://west-life.forummo.com/f37-server-videos
It's empty there with old videos, I want to see more videos of the server of ROLEPLAY and not just your shootouts, but it's fine whatever helps the server introduce more people to play here.As long as you show a good image in front of the camera, and the IP/Forum then we will be guaranteed to be noticed.
Our gangs control the server, which is weird because the Police should be the most dominate faction and active one here.I know they're doing the best they can to do that.Maybe you're a gang member, one of those who thinks drinking 40 ounces and chilling in your hood killing your enemies is the best roleplay in the world, you're wrong.There's a lot more then just that.No one should be taking this offensive, because it's not. Donating is a big help to the server too, I'd like to thank those who do because they keep the server alive.So, I'm asking what would you do to help the server?

I'm already assigned to host events to keep our players satisfied. I'm doing my best on that part.

I might be doing Roleplay video(s), will just need settle some things.
I do believe that making Roleplay footages could incrase our popularity.
Shootouts videos are alright, it just-.. nothing special, just shooting.

I'm waiting to receive news from my real-life job, wether I'll start in April or June.
If I start working on June, I'll be attempting to learn abit of scripting, nothing too much complicated.

I had the idea to add a little Delivery mission/job to the server, giving players the opportunities to make some money with legal something else than PayDay.
As I said, even if I'd learn to script, it'll be nothing too much complicated.
I might attempt to make such script as Delivery mission, just taking a Delivery Truck then drive from point A to point B, then get paid.

What do y'all think about it?

Well, there should be more legal and illegal jobs on the server mainly just JOBS on the server to make money than just paydays but yeah scripting is just one thing to help the server if there any professionals here which I doubt, but I want to learn about scripting as well.

I understand what you're saying, man.
I do believe too that we'd have legals/illegals jobs to help players getting money, I'd have several ideas, would just need either to learn it or work with someone that could script it.

Also, if we could improve the house system and gets buyable houses, players would focus more onto getting money and buying houses then waiting for payday, buy firearms and kill eachothers.
What you think about it, man?

Keelo is right,Its a good idea,there won't be moneyfarming.I will do roleplay videos and video on gangs,just like the documentary ''Gangbangin 4 life'',real footage gang tapes ..
I just wanted to change the graffiti system and change /putrag 1 color,turn it into purple and add knifes at the meele shop.
I'll try my best to drag some skills roleplayers here ..

I already learned to script PHP and Java (the very basics). I'm slightly making my way into PAWNO. So I might help Compton with scripting in the early future.

What will I do to help the server?
Just keep my normal ways of RP?You can't really ask a player to make a video or something like that. The videos that were made were from a place of love to the server not because they were asked what will they do for the server. I am aware that we have scripting issues nevertheless this is not the way to ask for additional help. You can post that you're looking for scripters. Because honestly maintenance of the server is the admins' job not the players' true there may be some that could help but as I mentioned above there's a different way to ask for it the fact that the admin team lacks the skill to script or keep players active isn't our fault (I will agree players should be more active I have already a couple of ideas in mind on how to do so)

Server is cool guys but it need few changes, so for first thing delete all arms dealers or something, because everyone who join to server and earn paycheck 500$ will go there and buy a gun and went to enemy hood and starts DMing, if an opponent was killed by a dmer that is not cool and he will probably /q so that means 1 player less on server, so if you would delete arms dealers or make a script that you need to be official gang member to buy a gun will bring a lot more Real RP, and this server is missing brawls with that script you will force "hoodrats" to make more brawls with other gangs.

Second thing what you should fix is drugsystem, here you take drugs and actually there is no effect +5 hp or some armor? Why there people would buy a drugs than ? to use 20 grams to earn full hp ? ah... make it that 1 gram will refill more HP and add some "drug effects" like "drunk" animation or something, as I said in one topic, for example only Hepburns can do in door growing other should plant weed outside, make a script that people can plant more than 1 plant and if someone else will find a plantation he can /harvest it - this will rise more drug using/planting, and cops will start using helicopters more for searching plantations... Just get some creative ideas about drug system.

Next thing is /taze that is really not to hard to script, and if you want /taze command look real just make that if officer is using colt it will count as tazer and if he hit a target with that he will be tazed..

Improve jail script, here can everyone resist to it, just make it like if player is jailed and when he relog or /q and come back another time he will spawn in one of the jail cells...

Maybe some legal jobs, and replace C.R.A.S.H with FBI or SWAT.. or maybe even put CRASH back on server...

Make police ranks or something, add them some faster or some "undercover" cars to make cop rp more interesting and so on..

all those ideas that I gave are not hard to script only Drug system would be difficult, I was good at scripting and I was trying to learn my scripting skills back with PAWNO but I can't open port and publish my server so I can't try commands and so on with my friend... So I gave up with scripting

As micklo said maybe make more advertising of server, but if server is inactive that means people don't like it so start working on that Wink

EDIT: Oh I forgot to mention most important thing.. add RP tutorial or maybe even "quiz" If player fail with answering on question he will be kicked or something ...

Yeah suggestions will make server better and brings more player that's the point, so why there are admins recruiting scripters than ? to script for no people? And there are scripters who want to be payed for scripting and that's not good, just keep the server as it is and it's good... Peace.

Well, I don't really know how to help the server.. I donated a few times, that's something, I guess.
I'm kinda' learning Photoshop, but nothing special.
I can't make videos because I lag when I use Fraps or any other video recording programme.
I'm just trying to enjoy my time here and role-play, that's all.

As for the scripting, I can't do anything.
I can map a bit, but one part when you have to give the position code to scripter, that part really sucks and takes some time which is completely boring.

The thing I really can do is make my thing in PS like server advertising pictures, some GIFs and similar.

Not only money, but we should make an announcement that, when the server's on the Hosted list, players should get IG to make the server look nice and/or populated.So, once we're on the 'Hosted' list, we should also step up our activity level if we want to attract new players and make them stay.
