now can we get back to my SUGGESTIONS?

Nah, I'm not sure we're done with this topic yet.

Unfortunately, the amount of info you can put in the server title is rather limited, and I found that no one actually reads it or the message of the day.

That's why I spent a great deal of time on writing my PlayerAgreement, so that people would have no choice but to have the rules of our server on their screen for 30 seconds before they could play on it.

This was code that I didn't particularly enjoy writing, and adds absolutely nothing to the game play, but it solves much of the types of problems that you've brought up.

I often think of it like this: If I had someone in my home, and they said or did something that would compel me to ask them to leave, I take the same stance on my server. We expanded these rules to be more stringent when our contributors asked if their little ones could play with us.

As far as this punishing all players, I really view it differently than you. I feel that in our space, people have a right not to deal with words that encourage hate, do harm, and are ridden with filth. We choose to create an environment where that is not an issue.

Don't get me wrong; I'm a firm supporter of the freedom of speech, especially across the Internet. I believe people should be able to set up their own personal space and do what they will with it. In our personal space, as with our home, we define the rules, and people can play by them, or quickly move along.

I'm not actually trying to run the "Best" server. I'm not even trying to run a "Good" server. I'm just trying to run "my" server. I don't really think the type of environment we run needs to be ranked against other servers.

However, if you like the vulgar brassy 16 year old chat-spam-fest ridden public servers, you're welcome to play on them, there's oodles of them out there.

I know Dru already responded, and the Forum Admin blood that still runs through my veins from years past urges me not to, but I am going to beat the dead horse a bit.

I like swearing. I swear all the time, especially when I'm using my computer (stupid computer.) I also make a lot of crude jokes (albeit immature "your mom" and "in Uranus" quality "jokes").

But the thing is Dru and Shan don't want that stuff on their server. As it so happens, Dru and Shan are a couple of pretty nice people. They have put a lot of time and money in to that server that most of us enjoy to play on. They don't HAVE to do this. I still am trying to figure out WHY anyone would want to spend soooooo much money (hundred and hundreds and hundreds of $$$) and a lot of time (I have a feeling neither Dru nor Shan are unemployed) on such a thing.

Taking all that in to consideration, the absolute least we could do for Shan and Dru, is to follow their rules when we're on their server. And the rules are very reasonable. It's not like they are asking you to give up your first born child or anything just to play on the server.

If I have to give up swearing temporarily, and my somewhat lewd comments, just to play on this server then so be it. I just have to make sure not to press "f" when someone steals my weapon maker.

Having to temporarily change your nickname is even less of a problem. Because no matter what your nickname is, you'll still be the same person. You'll still have the same skills, or lack thereof, and same model and whatnot.

And of course as you yourself said, there's 100's of server's out there where your nicks are alright. I'm sure if it's that much of a problem, you could always just go to another server.


*sough* ermm... on topic... on topic... let's see...

Err, Wil the next version of DruidsRPG contain any suggestions from this thread at all?

im all about gameplay. names, talking etc, are all peripheral. I mean, does anyone know what dcs stands for? more importantly, does anyone care?
although i do really like some of those suggestions, specifically an alternative to 10000 xp per level, quitting a good server cuz they dont like your name is kinda...whatever, your call.
and also your idea of monsters that are too tough for most low level players, or only take damage from high level players, IS A GREAT IDEA! Dru, thatd be sweet! Like huge fiery skaarj from the original UNREAL.
another idea; a map all underwater, but everyone has scubagear, and with the cool fishmonsters from the original game to fight against. maybe bigger fish, and snakes and stuff too? no warlords tho...u cant run from the missiles underwater.

To much talk. Either abide by the rules or go someplace else.

Right on Dru. In my opinion, like you said, this is your server in the end. If someone doesn't like the rules, leave. I'm sure that if imperfectdarkness didn't like the rpg, or his ping, etc.. that he had when playing he wouldn't cry about it, he'd find somewhere else to go. I really believe that (darkness's) complaint is petty and I wouldn't lose a minute of sleep if he left. If I may quote one of my favorite movies "don't go away mad, just go away."

and back to the topic we go!
[/offtopic]

remove infinity from shield gun's available magic abilities. infinite shield gun's shield isnt breakable, making you invincible.

since we all know that thats munchkin for a weapon you START with and can NEVER lose..... cmon. (probailly something that was overlooked??)

also. lets see an "objective" system.

the next wave starts and a message pops up saying "kill the titan with the blue halo!" the first person that does gets extra XP / good magic item / something.

or, have it a random personal thing. only you can see the halo and its a presonal mission. if the monster dies, have a check in place to notify the player.


another idea for a purchaseable skill. a skill that makes magic items easier to find.

or how about making spacific magic abilities have a higher appearance value.

say i put the abiulity into say... freezing. when i pick the shock rifle, i still have only a 33% chance of it being magic. but the chance of it being a FREEZING magic weapon would be higher.

doing it the second way would also allow you to controll the bonus. (AKA ability: "Vorpral finder" would increase the likelyhood of vorp weapns by 6%, "Energy finder" would increase it by 16%, and "Healing Finder" could increase the chance by 30% [hehe])
make the ability so you cant buy them all too... otherwise the ability would be moot.

hope my ideas arent junk!

I care now that you've MENTIONED it. If you hadn't I never would've really wondered. THANKS A LOT

acronymfinder gives the top-ranked meaning for dcs as "defense control system."

So that's my guess.

(I do like "Deer Commission for Scotland" though, another option.)

The old "Genocide" spell (going back to the Hack days) would be cool if it could be implemented in some form... like a Deemer of Titan Genocide
