Quote from: lolKieck on 08-12-2013SRP is going to use the old script silver madewhich is bad
Quote from: INA7HAN on 08-12-2013Nice to see everyone avoided the point I was making. There are no new SRP players, well not many anyway and all of these players are on TnB or go to TnB. Hence why I stated we'd not get any new players as the hype is gone from Stalker and so there will be no fresh blood
Quote from: Rebel6609 on 07-12-2013For the sake of everyone, it's best to let SRP rest in its coffin. people want it up, they play for a little bit, problems arise as per usual, and then everyone stops playing. It's like wanting to play that old game you used to play, and then by the time you walk over to the CD collection, and walk back, you don't feel like playing it anymore. That's SRP's revival in a nutshell.
Quote from: Frostee on 08-12-2013Just let it die. Fuck.
Quote from: Cutch on 08-12-2013Why wouldn't you just keep working on a metro RP server rather than continue the monotony of SRP that we've had over the past five years.
Quote from: INA7HAN on 08-12-2013Well Stalker hype has pretty much gone seen as the aren't any news one being made etc so players who played stalker upon release of the games and thought wouldn't it be fun to RP this have dissappeared with basically zero chance of getting news players so it'd just be all the old players really.

Quote from: TheAndyShandy on 05-12-2013Oh boy.Strap yourselves in, it's time for the great 'obligatory' SRP resurrection of 2013/14/15/16/22
Quote from: Tom on 09-12-2013Omg please dont mix games loreAnd i read up until "America shoots nukes at zone" yeah man, remeber that huricane america shot nukes at to stop? Yeah me neither, cause shooting an ecological disaster with explosives is dumb, shooting nukes is dumb and shooting nukes at a nuclear disaster zone to stop it from spreading is autistic.
Quote from: Tanako on 09-12-2013If we do go ahead with a SRP reform, donations won't be a major factor anymore, infact, most donation schemes will be done away with entirely as the costs for hosting are now 1/10 of what they were and i am in a very healthy position financially to upkeep the server.We will need around £30 pounds a month to keep our servers\website\misc running. Any excess would go to motivation towards development. But time for myself is very limited these days. I wanted to get Metro RP up but there's no time\motivation on my side, and no one has really "chipped" in to help either with that project. I only get weekends to do stuff and even then, i am very busy with other things that i would normally do throughout the week.
Quote from: INA7HAN on 09-12-2013America seeing the zone as the expanding threat decides to nuke it.
Quote from: Cutch on 09-12-2013Fine, put the server back up if it makes you feel better. Just don't be surprised when the initial hype wears off and the server empties out after a couple weeks.
Quote from: Gonztah on 10-12-2013I'd like to know why you're so against it that you'll bother to post comments like this on the forums, what's your take on this really? I'm just worried that if new people do visit the forums they'll just read posts like this and come to the conclusion of: "Oh it'll die away then, wont bother even trying."It's a self-fulfilling prophecy if you ask me.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013Stagnation is the biggest issue, people get bored of the scenario, and timeline isn't necessarily considered when it is based upon a game which has it's own timeline. Advancing the RP scenario's timeline would be advancing through the game's timeline, and that would include some massive and impossible changes.1.) Create a Narrative"But we're in a Narrative! We're in Stalker!"--Well, yes. However the server had HL2 syndrome in which the RP scenario remained permanently fixed. There needs to be an aspect of story telling, a story of this particular region of the zone that advances, arcs, twists, and most importantly, is influenced by the players which is then detailed on the forums to keep everyone updated of what is actually going on. Simultaneously, it would be a part of the 'greater plot' of Stalker, but simply wouldn't progress through the game's timeline. The server timeline progresses, but the overall scenario doesn't. Characters need to be involved in the story telling to reassure us that we are all influential. Like the zone, heroes and villains of all creeds, loyalties, and backgrounds become well known.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013Individual group / player actions were not very influential, which gave the atmosphere a very still feeling of non-progression. There were events and many people and their characters would remember them for a long while, especially if it involved major factions.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-20132.) Promote and emphasize passive RPPassive RP can be boring, and we all know it, however it's your fault if it's boring. If your character is a boring one and doesn't have a personality, mannerisms, history, ambitions, likes & dislikes, and so on, your character is a drone. Passive RP has the potential to be some of the best RP you will ever experience if you put effort into your character and RP. Soon it will become second nature and will be thoroughly enjoyable. Inside the zone is the perfect setting for passive RP.Those are the two big ones and I'm sure we can all think of minor improvements to the scenario and to the server itself, however what I listed above is probably the most important to make a revived scenario successful. We don't need to combine scenarios, just build upon the already fruitful Stalker scenario with the servers own story.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013A small while ago I went on an airsoft weekend in the winter to a big site. We spent the night in a -5 degrees freezing cold warehouse, the luxuries we had were warm clothes, alcohol, and food. 5 hours passed as we ate, drank, joked, took the piss, told stories, and it was great. My friend was also trying to fix one of his guns in the dark. I also slept in the back of a van.

Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013Although what hasn't changed is the impression of HGN from players outside the community, that being that it is a TNB clone, a community that puts character equipment over RP.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013I don't understand how you don't know what an advancing plot is. Your description is of a sandbox server, where as I said, things are left alone to happen. An advancing plot introduces some control on behalf of the admin team, but an actual plot is introduced instead of letting things slowly develop and then stagnate over time.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013My generalization on passive RP was also based upon my experiences in the past, that being, I didn't see much passive RP (Although the little passive RP I had was great). My RL example was in relation to passive RP and showed that passive activity can be equally fun as active .. activity?
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013I don't understand your hostilities to change. If SRP were to ever return as standard as it was before, it would die again. Change is necessary in this instance.
Quote from: KillSlim on 10-12-2013You don't see politicians wanting people's votes and promising to change or improve absolutely nothing.
