I swear, nobody really acknowledges it, but this started, like, a day or two after Wowdah, Cuddles and I left. We were actually the only people on the server who produced passiveRP. No use denying it, just look at the population now. Nobody else really BOTHERS to come on in the first place unless they see pop.

You guys are gonna have to create RP for yourselves, join the server at 0/25 population, and follow the examples we set. Fail to do that and the server will die fairly quickly. If there's nobody there, nobody joins. Period.

And no, just shifting all blame to admins doesn't do much. You see, there have to actually be people on for our actions to mean anything.

One of the reasons I don't go on the server that much. I'm normally the ONLY people on after Cuddles and Zaughi's main chars or at least Refugee characters died. Soooo yeah.

Zauhgi that's some bullshit.  Passive Rp my ass.  Rp died when you were still on the community, so stop acting high and mighty.

Super America, there is no need to act rude. At all.

What you're saying is very much untrue, the RP didn't die in the first place before we'd left, the population of the server did. You clearly didn't read my post correctly. But even then, there was RP. But upon switching over to my unit char during the low population, I came into the plaza to find one or two citizens jacking off waiting for events or something. That was about it. The only RP actually happening on the server occured in the slums - it was passiveRP, at that.

Who DID join the server at 0/25 pop, besides Wowdah/Cuddles/me/occasionally Oculatus/Cinere?

It certainly wasn't YOU joining, Super America. While this may seem to be petulant, I do not see how I am acting "high and mighty", as you put it, I'm trying to show a correlation. I'm very disappointed in you as a person to make such defaming accusations with just about zero evidence to back it up. Then again, it's a discussion about an online role-playing gamemode, which actually further removes the need for saying things like that.

On-Topic:
Glad to see that some people joined today, but that needs to be a consistent effort. I kept playing on TEH because I was engaging in passiveRP with other players and developing my character. A.K.A the whole point of role-playing in the first place.

I got on a lot, even when there was only about three other people on. Lately though... no. I'm currently failing in a very important class at school right now (chemistry) and if my dad finds out I'm getting a 44%, I'm going to beat myself deep down mentally.

It'd be great if other people made the best effort they could though...

I try to join in when someone my char knows is on. Sadly, I can't start population because I made the mistake of joining other communities and being a part of them. (AKA members will yell at me for being on a different server/not immediately not jumping to the server they're on) Come to think of it, going to other communities is how I found this server.

I think its altered to much. This isnt HL2RP anymore, so no one finds it as fun as it used to be.

Someone please open a Vanilla HL2RP server with a new story, all new characters, no extra plugins, no extra divisions, or jobs. Few weapons, open D6, regular players controlling powerful positions. Admins only get privaliged by powers, not special characters.


Just plain old HL2RP where shit was decided in real time by regular players and server events were depicted by actual events that players carried out that led up to said server wide event. I just remember wanting to act the best act I could, be well known by things my character did and not by knowing the community and using that as a way to advance myself. Back when things took time, and the guy you relied on to carry out the RP was just as dedicated as you were.

I agree with Diablo. TEH just doesn't have that old TC charm to it. I actually think divisions should be done away with to begin with, but that's just a personal HL2 canon-following obsession issue.

Plug-ins aren't really that big of an issue as long as there aren't too many of them. We don't need jobs, or CWU, or any of that, either. I like the idea of D6 being open, however, I'd prefer than the lines between slums and city are blurred so rebelRP can be a bit more dynamic. I think we should also start cutting down on content packs. We really don't need the Suits and Robbers pack, or TnB, or any of that. If we removed divisions, we wouldn't even need the Metropolice Pack.

We need to shift our focus to ROLEPLAY if we want to survive. Quality over quantity may not work in the short term, but in the long run it pays off.

Just my two cents on the matter.

I hope you understand that TC actually created this problem. The very reason this community is dying, is the same reason it was created

Also true, but it is not impossible to last longer than we did. Forever is a strange concept. But a long period of time? That we can handle. We just need the right tools.

Personally, I suggest a vanilla HL2RP, with a small simple map again. As well as a new story. It sounds rough, but sometimes you need a reboot to get things back on track.

EDIT:

Restarting could be simple, too. Everyone creates new characters, and resets their whitelist. Before the restart, we check applications and select CCA and such as needed. Those CCA chosen will start as RCT's. Since we are starting over, this is the very BEGINNING of the enslavement of the human race. So, in turn the CCA all start a new. No CmD, No SeC, no DvL's, no higher ups. The only one to control the CCA's until they reach a high enough level, is the Administrator. He will train them, he will promote them, he will demote them, he will do everything until he has a Unit ready to fill a position. Oh, and arrest people for no reason. Seriously, you can. This isn't real life. If someone cries "You dont have a reason to arrest me!" in LOOC, tell them this is HALF LIFE 2 RP, and that you, as a CCA Unit, can do what ever the fuck you wanna do to a citizen.

Citizens go back to simply renting homes and ganging up with one another, getting rations from time to time, hitting up the CWU, getting permits, the usual.

D6 is open for all, even CCA. But CCA are not recommended to go into D6 unless given a reason. Such as, seeing someone enter. This is mainly because the Rebels hang out here, and it can be dangerous for all.

The rebellion has not begun yet. You are the first citizens to enter this city and feel the wrath of the CCA. (This does mean the CCA can rank up rather quick in the beginning) But also remember you are hungry and cold. You are human, you know? When you go outside you get chills and sometimes it can make you feel like crap. Just don't act all tough and high and mighty. You are just a regular person who is now in a crazy situation. You are not a master shot, even after a long time. You are a regular dude. Everyone who had skill fought back, and died.

Weapons in D6 are nearly impossible to find. D6 was just cleaned and sweeped to get rid of all dangerous object. Citizens will have to use their minds against the combine (IE: Leading one down an alley, then beating him up and taking his gun ICly , assuming the CCA will play it cool and go with it) until they can do some real damage.

Vorts are uncommon. Usually one at a time. Also, enslaved most of the time. This is the pre-revolution. Vorts actually know very little about humans still.

CWU goes back to selling its default stock. Usually some simple food and water, then a flaslight, some other junk. Most you need a permit for.

I intend to continue the plot threads we have going, but progress on towards the events of HL2 and the uprising. It's just likely we won't be in City 17 when we reach that point. At that point, I hope to have either SWRP or 1984RP(or both or another project)online to some degree, at which point we will be leaving our HL2RP origins behind.

Honestly, HL2RP in general is a dying art. I want to wrap up as many plot threads as possible from SOTA and TC up before a final conclusion, but the repeated beating of the dead horse stops at TEH. If somebody else wants to pick it up after the fact, well, that's your prerogative.

I think our HL2RP is a dying art. We made our own type of HL2RP after all these years. It adapted and changed in SoTA, I recreated it in TC, it adapted and changed in TC, you recreated it for TEH, and you adapted it even more so.

What you have is a very modified version of HL2RP.

Vanilla HL2RP, because of its now low population, will come back eventually. When suddenly something you spent a lot of time on in the past is gone, you will crave it just that much more. Imagine being the one with a server.
