    I'm considering hosting a 32 slot DarkRP server. If I did, would it be something people would actually play on for more than a couple of weeks?

    Assuming you do it right, add some e2 with restrictions for regulars/contrib. I'm all in.

    I tend to disagree there. A large part of the custom content is optimised badly (if at all) and in a lot of cases subject to sloppy programming and design. This usually leads to a large impact on performance and playability. In my experience it is better to have a few big add-ons, preferably paid ones, than using a lot of small add-ons. Having someone there that is able to solve performance and stability issues with a bit of recoding or testing would also help.

    In my opinion good players make the game. And usually the more 'mature' and experienced RP players tend to search for servers that offer a lot of freedom and as little hassle as possible; aka no stupid shit.

    Which version of "the map" would that be? I know probably what you mean, but I am not sure about the version. I do know the earlier ones get a bit performance heavy with a lot of the add-ons.

    I can't remember. It was like 3 years ago that I last set foot on that map, but it had the hotel, a pawnshop in the back, two conjoined buildings where one had a very large garage, and the police station/mayor's office had 3 floors. mayor on the 3rd and gun cache in the middle. Im not sure about the version. aslong as the building with the conected garage is intact, I would be happy.

    I believe that was the version of another community. Version 7B or something.

    EDIT:
    I did some searching around my add-ons and I believe you mean either Downtown version 4C or 6. However both of them 'need' cars, which I personally dislike. However it's not up to me of course. ^^

    Yeah, sure. I'd maybe come back for some fun. I was on an RP server recently that had the perfect balance of trolling and sensibility.

    I think the GMod slump that I think a lot of the IM servers (yeah, I pretty much solely mean the RP servers that were hosted) suffered from could be overcome.

    It'd also be lovely to have you host, Ice. After all my time in Icemod I never really have spent much time speaking or playing with you at all.

    Do prepare for some serious good acting and roleplaying though. It's almost creepy at times, but old uncle Ice is a great bartender and storyteller. ;)

    I'd absolutely love to see this come into reality and to have fun again with DarkRP. However I do want a bit more mature server to play on. The last few weeks of the old DarkRP were a bit too mingy for me, which in turn made it a bad experience for the staff (me included).
