Custom community jobs!

Post by Rodney Bryson on Fri Dec 28, 2012 5:47 am

I once played on an RP server called Splints Serious RP server. They had a forum section with custom jobs where people could fill out an application form for a new job on the server. These jobs were "groups" or "clans" of people being either criminal, neutral or with the law. This little feature of the server made it so popular that it was almost full at all times. At one point the admins wanted to try having the server without the custom jobs which lead to the closing of the server, because no one wanted to play on it anymore.

The idea though is great. Have a forum section with all the groups. Have a leader and a co owner of each group and make them manage a little forum section for their own group putting up rules, ranks, etc.

Have admins vote +1 or -1 on the applications for a new group if they like it or not.

I remember that the application form for a new group looked something like this:

group name:
co owner:
members: (have atleast 1 or 2 members to be accepted or something like that)
job color:
weapons: (weapons they spawn with if they do spawn with one)
Good, evil or neutral:
Job history:
Job purpose:
etc.
etc.



I don't know if this is possible to add, but it would be awesome if it is.

Yep, those are great examples.
The feature on that server is really the reason why I have more than 1000 hours played of gmod. (That and a sandbox server I was admin on ages ago)

^
He basically means forum approved factions, (I think)
Where you can apply for a little faction to be set up, and thus its like a little faction database, complete with members, loyalties, and leadership.
Might even involve a ranking system.

Exactly.
There would be one leader and a co-owner of each group. They would decide ranks, rules and so on.

rank examples:
501st Recruit
501st Elite
501st Commander
etc Smile

The forum section for each group would be only visible for those IN the group.

+1
However, to create the group, maybe you have to be VIP? Seems kinda OP.

Oh, I see. So its like mini-factions this is what I understand from this post and I'll explain it through an example

Make a thread where you can make factions where players have created their jobs (501st)

Forum admins must aproove the faction that the player will make and the player will designate a co-owner(if he wants to)

And then when its all done players will register onto the thread and the owner or co-owner will aprove/deny the players that want to join.

They can even give themselves and other players ranks


Coper: 501st General

etc...

^ Imho, nah.
I think itd be best if you left it to people to do the same thing as in with admin or mod applications,
people review what your group stands for, see if it would fit into the rp, judge you, judge what you would do, and do a +1 or -1 or 0.
I think that groups should have the chance to like... get a ingame /ooc title, that goes with their rank, or group.
My one would totes be a Merc Comp. (PM/SC)

-----EDIT------
Ohshit. Sorry oyster, that post was directed to tele. ;3
