DarkRP Update

    By ikoN,
    The DarkRP update has finally happened. As the server has been up for a bit over 3 years, the update has included a reset of pretty much everything except for user ranks and utime. This should improve server performance and roleplay. This is mainly a massive back end update with some new content. Here is the main things that have happened:
    - Economy Reset. Donators over the past few months will be reimbursed RP money over the next week more info to come.
    - Adv Dupe Reset. People can request to have some dupes bought back over the next week more info to come.
    - A lot of fixes.
    - New Weapons. FAS:2 Alpha weapons with attachments. Check weapon info in the slot menu for what ammo they need. 
    - New Job Hired Goon (criminal security guard/errands type of job more info to come).
    - New Meth Cook Job. Cook up Meth and sell it to NPC for decent cash.
    - New HUD/F4 Menu/Scoreboard things.
    - Pepper Spray weapon.
    - Better staff tools.
    - Many quality of life improvements.
    - Serial Rapist & Cars have been removed.
    - Restriction adjustments.
    - rPhone is back.
    - Weather/day and night cycle is back.
    - No bankr, ATMs or tax just wallet.
    - Map back to rp_downtown_v4e_fix, same map but fixes some of the issues of the current map.
    - Probably some other things
    Now that this major update has occurred you can now expect many more content updates and new features to occur, much quickly. There are other things we wanted to add but it has been so long we needed to get this update put out first. We have a lot planned!
    Massive credits to
    ph33x for spending a shit load of time getting the update ready and fixing up a lot.
    Ownage for fixing up weapon issues.
    Nathan for writing up commands reference.
    Juke for working on the prop blacklist.
    Caboose for assisting with ulx/falco/urs permissions.
    Everyone else who has helped with testing and finding issues on the test server.
    Obviously please let us know of any issues.

    Forum Upgrade

    By ikoN,
    As you may see the forum has been updated from 3.4.x to 4.x.
    This is quite a major upgrade for Invision Board. Things are slightly different now. Over time things will be done to make it appear like it was before.
    At the moment the main things that may not return for a while include:
    - Steam Profile Integration
    - Staff pages
    There are also no longer friends but followers instead, if you follow someone you will be notified when they make any posts. The old Shoutbox was not updated to this newer version so we have a new one as well. 
    Expect some new features.
    If you have any trouble logging in, your login name is what your previous Display name was not your previous login name.
    If you find any issues please let me know.

    Bunny Hop update

    By ikoN,
    As discussed on another thread, due to the lag issue with the bunny hop gamemode, efforts to resolve it didn't work out so there has been some changes to address this.
    The gamemode has been changed to the one we had before, which was made by George. This has been updated as well with some new styles and also stores data in mysql.
    The lag issue seemed to be due to the large amount of times saved to the database, and the fact it was stored using SQLite which doesn't handle large tables of data that well compared to Mysql.
    The times had to be reset as it was in a different structure. But I am confident this will be the last reset of times the server has.
    There are 236 maps currently set up, with another ~50 due to be set up in the near future.
    The gamemode is similar to what we had before, type !help in chat to see some of the commands, F1 can be used to switch style and F2 to toggle spectator. I've made the theme mostly black cause I am not good with colours.
    The ranks are sorted out differently though. As some may remember, it is based on your position overall against all players rather than the amount of points you have. Probably the only feature that is currently missing is a !top list to show the ranks of everyone (inc offline), this will come soon enough.
    +left/right binds will stop your timer so best get used to not using them
    Please report any issues, should be all good though!

    New Forums

    By ikoN,
    As you can tell, we have just switched from SMF to Invision Board (forum software). Everything has gone smoothly. I don't really have much to say about it but it is almost set up how we want it. Usergroups are the main thing that I will be setting up soon.
    Now a couple of things for the new people who are attempting to sign in here.
    If you have an existing account already, don't use Steam Sign In! That will make a new account. You will need to log in to your existing account first, and then you can link your steam account in your profile if you wish to sign in to your existing account through steam.
    Also, some people had special characters in their log in name, so if you are unable to log in this may be why. Send me a message and I can rename your username if this has occurred.
    And yeah unfortuantely the steam ID's didn't convert across, so you will need to put in your steam ID in your profile to have the steam integration. Alternatively you can just link your steam account - either way will work fine. I recommend both!
    If you've donated before, go here http://monumentalgaming.net/index.php?/topic/2248-forum-donator-rank/#entry17720

    Pointshop Updates

    By ikoN,
    There has been some big updates to the pointshop this weekend. I have condensed all fastdl and workshop files of all the Pointshop servers (prop hunt, deathrun, ttt, sledbuild). So only these 2 files are needed to be downloaded for all these servers (apart from maps).


    About 23 playermodels (some are excluded for ttt), and 20 masks have also been added. More will be added, as well as new taunts etc - will update this post. These new items have also been made more expensive than usual, to cater for the richer players on the server.

    New Teamspeak

    By ikoN,
    We now have a new Teamspeak server. Reason being, it was hosted on our dedicated server along with our other games. It has been using a lot of bandwidth lately, so we've decided to take it off the Dedi and have it hosted elsewhere.

    The new IP is:

    As we were unable to migrate the database, Caboose has set it up from scratch. Along with this, we have decided to make a few changes as well.

    There is no longer individual server staff ranks such as DarkRP Mod. It is now just simply Monumental Staff which will include mods and admins (Managers and Owners have a separate additional rank). Along with this, there is also a new rank: Teamspeak Staff. This group has the admin privileges on the TS server, not Monumental Staff. Staff will apply internally to be apart of the Teamspeak Staff. Managers and higher will be Staff to start with. This allows us to better manage what goes on and reduce any abuse that may happen. Caboose has also been made the Teamspeak Manager, and is mainly responsible for making changes to the TS. The new TS is still being set up, but it is mostly done.

    That's it really. Werd.

    DarkRP Update

    By ikoN,

    We have applied the long awaited update for the DarkRP server today. Here's the run down.

    The server has been rebuilt from scratch, with the new DarkRP 2.5 version. The new DarkRP version has many changes, mostly behind the scenes which makes it run a lot better.
    All the addons have been sorted and organised properly, again this is more of a behind the scenes thing. One of the positives of this is that there is now only 6 workshop items in total to download when joining the server, and there is no manual fastdl files. So joining now will be quicker than ever. Click here for the workshop collection.
    The jobs have been remade. These are mostly the same. Some of the major changes are, new police uniforms (uk police models) and no more mercenary, cook, bartender or medic. A new job has been made called Merchant which sells things the cook, bartender and medic sold, as well as some other things such as kevlar armour, gun lab and pistol ammo
    Kevlar Armour has been added for Merchants and Gun dealers to sell, light is 25 armour, medium is 50 armour and heavy is 100 armour. No more buying armour from health station
    Health station price has gone to 400 for a full heal, if you heal from a merchant its about half the price.
    Weapon pack has been changed back to the reliable CSS Realistic Weapons. Ammo has also been increased, but can be purchased cheaper through a gun dealer/blackmarketdealer/merchant for a cheaper price.
    New MOTD and F4 Menu.
    Police can now fine people via F3 menu.
    MOTD has been rewritten and more rules added, please read.
    Weed NPC Buyers have been added, so now you can grow weed and sell them to an npc for some extra cash
    New Phone system has been added which replaces PM. Hold R to access.
    New Printers have been added. These also include a printer controller which you can buy, and remotely control the printer (recharge battery, install new cooler). These printers are Anti-AFK as they run out of battery in about 20 minutes.
    More realistic Grapple Hook for Ninja
    Now asks new users to create an RP Name on join
    Prices of shipments have been adjusted, pistols are cheaper, rifles are more expensive.
    Containers have been added to purchase, where you can store items such as ammo, weapons, health kits etc. Note that this empties ammo on a gun.
    Shipments now explode on destroy rather than creating mini shipment (for several good reasons)
    Cars have been removed for now. You can purchase the HL2 Jeep and Airboat in F4 though.
    Map has been changed to v4e, an old map we have ran many times which has served us well.
    New Admin Log system for staff.
    Fall damage is back.
    Weather/day/night mod added.
    Text screen added back.
    A lot more other shit I'm sure I have forgotten to mention.

    So yeah, this was more of a back end update which has seen many changes on the front end as well. I am pretty happy with the small download time required to join now, and this has paved the way for plenty more updates to come in the future, and we have a lot more planned. If there is any issues please let us know. The update should as well reduce the lag to an extent.
