After nearly a year, I can come back to say that NOTHING has changed with the gamemode.
This is a very bad investment, and there is little chance that your server will get players. (AS NO SERVER TO THIS DATE HAS GOT A WORKING ONE).
Players dont like the gamemode, and people would rather player DarkRP or even SantosRP then this.
This Edit of DarkRP is not worth your money, or your time.
IF you rly want to edit darkrp, do it yourself. Dont pay 80USD for this failed gamemode.
And as you can see by the creators comments, he does not care for User input, and would say your wrong if you wanted something changed...
Well you only purchased 7 hours before writing this review, so I don't really see how you can have evaluated the entire gamemode to 1/5 & have had so many people dislike it, enough for a 'Do not buy this gamemode' and 'i cant see it as having any potential', but here goes:
"The MOTD looks rushed and poorly made" - The F1 menu? It's just a window with 2 buttons: http://i.imgur.com/kbKQfwp.png I don't know what more you want, it's the same as every other motd
"Systems inside of the gamemode are well coded, but many people dislike how it works." vague and no explanation so can't counter really
"The Hud Is Low Quality, confusing, and uninviting." - No it isn't? No explanation too
My test server is stock DarkRP with the gamemode, credit shop DLC and content pack from the workshop installed, nothing else. "ng-vrondakis server has custom content, and other things he dident include in this gamemode" from? It's lies if anything, my server is a test server called "Syndicate RPG test server" - so of course it gets no actual players other than people wanting to try the gamemode.
So no support ticket, no contacting me, no posting any of your suggestions on Trello & you haven't really mentioned in your review anything apart from the HUD and F1 menu, tiny parts of the gamemode so 'i cant see it as having any potential.' is not warranted & is very unfair
Please don't PayPal chargeback this script like you did with my prestige system
Best gamemode hands down!
Come try out our server! Its reliable!
Very exciting game mode, it's a very nice tip of the hat back to the old GangWars Styled game mode in the old days. The game mode has a slick HUD and UI. The files are actually organized and in an easy to understand manor allowing even the most simplest of people to edit files to their liking. All the content as of writing is this is working, with a somewhat varied amount of missions. It would have been nice to see some more variety, however I'm sure they'll be coming in future updates.
My only gripe is that of the DLC (Credit Shop) since it directly can influence in-game factors and it's a shame to have to spend another $15, admittedly it does seem like it would be a good purchase.
Overall, $35 for a game mode of this standard is fantastic and I look forward to all the future updates.
It is cool
But the discount let me feel like bullshit
I bought it when 65USD
Im sure the guy purchase it with orignal price is ready to jump now:)
Hopefully it will prevent even some of the worst server owners from creating bad servers
Fantastic Gamemode with support ~2 minutes after ticket.
Works buttery smooth. Not to many bugs to report so definitely give this guy a shot for this gamemode!
very good gamemode, better then darkrp. nice support and friendly dude. works fine and stable. some bugs ofc but nothing important.
keep up the good work and i hope to see more for this!
PS: dont listen to that 1 Star dickhead. he cant srsly write a normal review.
Nice support, good gamemode to do something very interesting. But, buying this, if u not gonna do something interesting, new - isn't best idea.
Gamemode is just a base, don't think that it'll be interesting to play on this clean gamemode will be interesting and so popular.
But, it's the best and, even new RPG gamemode!
The creator is very available to help us.
Its gamemode is beautiful visually.
The internal scripts are optimized and uses clean base.
I am sure that with the time and teams willing to help,
This mode of games will become a must!
Thank you for this work.
The current stage of this gamemode is playable by a degree. Everything that has already been made in the gamemode is pretty unique and has it's own "touch" to it. Everything that has been made within the gamemode, has already been tweaked to a pretty good standard, meaning that you dont really have to edit anything, cause the pre-configuration is already well balanced.
I'll handle out scores for a few important roles when it comes to custom gamemodes.
Features = 4/5
When it comes to features that this gamemode has to offer, then It's basically a handsdown. Handsdown to everything. It's really boring to just have Printers to entertain your "wallet" and "experience" in a gamemode, but this has even more ways to earn yourself a great game experience. Quests. The quests in this game is absolutely joyful. When you take a Quest, you'll see that the NPC interacts with you as a player. You favor them by completing the quests, then they'll favor you back with in-game money and EXP. Each and every NPC has their own unique style of saying things, which leads to a much better game experience. What actually makes this gamemode, is It's own Gang System. It's absolutely astonishing! The intense Gang war against rivals. It just cant get any better to actually strive to become the best gang in the server. Well, It can be Gang Printers, but that is on Vrondakis's "To-do list"!
Balance = 5/5
The gamemode comes pre-configured. It's really balanced as it is, but If you want to change anything, then the settings is really easy to adjust and tweak to your own liking. The Weapons and the Gear you can get, is really well made when it comes to the Stats they have. And even If you use Upgrades on your equipment, then it'll be fine due to the amazing tweaking the configuration already have!
Action = 6/5
Action packed gamemode. Lots of killing, lots of quest, lots of capturing parts of the map. Lots of lots of lots of enjoyment. What else can i add? Owning your rival and say in OOC; rekt. What's a better feel than that? Nothing!
But there is some features that the gamemode lacks, such as Gang Printers, Hitmens, Bankers and Vaults. But there is a feature that is crucial for this gamemode.....COSTUMES!
But the essentials for the gamemode is solid and well made. The most "unique" DarkRP experience that money can buy.
Please note: This gamemode is still in development and is constantly receiving updates and bug fixes. That being said you can still purchase this gamemode today and put it on your server and play it with it running smoothly.
For starters i'll mention this gamemode is extremely user friendly and server owner friendly. The players are directed to a help page on spawning in the server (F1 Help Menu) explaining to the player how to play and what to do. Server owners can expect easy to understand server configuration settings. There are many settings to read through and change to your personal preference to make your server unique from the rest.
The in-game customization is F***ing incredible with how much can be done by simply being in the server.
Server owners or which ever rank you specify in the config file can change property settings, power sockets & building capture placement, npc spawns, territory placements and much more.
If you accidentally misspell a building name or mess up on the placement of a power socket or capture point you can rename/delete them and redo it while in-game!
I have to quote this from the main page just encase you missed it.
"The gamemode is derived from DarkRP, meaning it works with DarkRP addons out of the box, and also allows you to get the latest DarkRP features / updates without touching the gamemode."
what players do:
Players will find themselves printing to make money and level up. With that money they will buy forges which produce materials required to craft weapons and armor. These weapons and armor the player craft will be assigned random attributes making crafting fun and a game of itself. This gear is then used to help fight over gang territories which is even more exciting.
Quests are also a fun thing to do on the sideline when you feel like getting nice reward and experience.
For anyone thinking they may buy this keep this in mind. The price may seem daunting but if you were to pay a coder the same amount to code you a custom gamemode you could expect to get a fraction of gamemode.
Reporting bugs and getting them fixed.
I am amazed on how using the site specified by the creator to report bugs gets bugs patched. Not just patched but fixed in a matter of hours not days not weeks not months. Depending on the time of day of reporting a bug or bug(s)[One Per Report] they seem to get patched within 24 hours of posting.
Last note, the developer will try his best to answer a question if you are stuck or have an issue.
