    Upcoming Changes

    Hello Towards the end of the month I will be retiring from any responsibility I have with Gmod, and I will also be closing MG. ADTR and I started MG 4 and a half years ago and it is crazy to see it go for so long. When this happens ph33x will launch a new community, and will continue to host the current RP, Sandbox and other servers under this new name. ph33x has been preparing for this in the lead up so that there will be a seamless transition for everyone when it happens. I am sure ph33x has many big plans for this, such as more servers and expanding to other games. I feel this is the best option to allow the community to move forward and expand. If you have any questions about this transition and what will happen after, it is best to speak to ph33x. Any donations this month will be going to ph33x to pay for future dedicated server bills. There is no major intention by ph33x to change staff around. I will also be leaving the MG site up for a few months, possibly in read only mode, after this happens. I will make a better farewell/thank you post when the time comes. I just wanted to give everyone the heads up on what will be happening. Cheers everyone ikoN~ tldr; MG brand/site will be closing, ph33x will continue community under new name end of month.

    It's a bitter sweet moment in disguise. Monumental has played a big part in my online time spent over the past few years and through that I've met some great friends. For many of you this may be your first serious gaming community. The community ikoN has created has allowed you to foster relationships that span between games, often outside of games altogether. That is what makes Monumental special. Not the name, but the group of people within that make it what it is. Being a bit older and doing this stuff as an enthusiast since the 90's, I can tell you how truly important any community of people are. Most of us here would agree that ikoN has done a great service, volunteering his time and sinking substantial amounts of money into making a successful platform for us to enjoy ourselves on. I met you all through what was once just a kernel of his actions. I didn't know what lua was before I came here. I didn't know how to change from the rope tool before I came here. I don't want any of this to die out, splitting out into different games and things. Why can't we do that still? With the TLC I know a lot of you possess, we can together grow something new, a place befitting for us all. People want to step up to the plate and this will become more apparent as time goes on. Fear not the day you will come on to find everything wiped out. I, no, we, will continue the legacy ikoN has so hearting placed upon us all. A place to go of a day and enjoy yourself for little to no cost. I would also like to quickly reach out to the regulars and donators who through their own enjoyment, promote and assist us with every dollar and minute ever spent. Thank you. Big things on the horizon for those with faith and patience. Like little boats in the sea, all we need is a slipway to guide us back to the channel of digital salvation.

    My time.

    Alright well, lowkey i've been thinking about this for awhile now but since all this stuff with MG happening thought it'll be a good time to do it now. I will be resigning/leaving Monumental again as i'm not finding anymore interest in gmod anymore. It has been a rocky adventure for me on here, after leaving twice and coming back. I was pleasured to be offered to manage deathrun for the time that I did and hope I brought some life into it. I would like to give a HUGE thanks to ikoN, helping me with some shit on deathrun, mentoring me and just having me around for the time I was here, you've taught me alot about doing stuff for a server and even a community, and for that I give you huge props and a big thanks for running this amazing community. I would also like to give thanks to ph33x, he taught me alot of stuff aswell behind the scenes, what with the changing the rules and what not, and putting up with me not knowing shit all. Also the community i'd like to thank you for making the servers what they are and making us stand out from other Australian servers. Theres a few people i'd like to thank aswell; Juke; My online bae, I fucking love you, you were the funniest fucker to chat with always had a great time with you my love and I hope we never stop talking as you always say some fucked up shit. Aeth; I know you've left awhile ago but if it wasn't for you I wouldn't have stayed here for the time that i have been here, you've helped me through alot and for that I thank you. Carrot; You have been one of my closest friends throughout me being here, always a blast playing other games with you and staying up doing retarded shit on ts. Rezzie; Same with aeth, You've been a big part of me playing deathrun and it's always been a great time with you cutie, playing dayz and all that best fun in ages. Batman/Bruce; You are a fucking idiot sometimes but you were always a laugh, never a dull moment with you was a pleasure to have you as a staff member of deathrun. Jeke; Hella fun guy, was always a blast to play h1z1 with you and other games, always a great staff member was a pleasure to accept you. Deathrun Staff; You guys are what made deathrun what it is, sorry I haven't played much of it but I done what I could and I love you guys for making it what it was. I will keep talking to you guys every now and then even if you wanna add me you can, I hope ph33xs' new community has a terrific start and hope it goes well as Monumental has this has been a great time me being here for 4 long years and this is the final chapter of my book of being here, I hope I left my mark on this amazing community. Peace out~

    Goodbye Monumental

    Thread music in spoiler: Well the end of MG is less than 24 hours away. It's been a fun ride, and I hope the vast majority of you have had a great time here. I certainly have enjoyed the experience. For those that may not have read the previous announcement, ph33x will be officially launching a new community tomorrow which will be timed when the MG servers shut. The MG DarkRP, Prop Hunt, Sandbox and Bunny Hop servers will essentially continue under this new community. So the spirit of MG and the community will live on, and I look forward to stopping by over there once in a while to see how everyone is going. I found this old post from a few years ago on how MG essentially came to be, which you can see below. It was crazy to see Monumental become so popular so quickly. There was never any intention for it to be popular, we just wanted to have an Aus BuildRP server to play on. We didn't even have a forum until almost 3 weeks after we started, due to people starting to ask about donating and how to apply for staff. It has always been the community which has driven us forward. We were reluctant to change from our desired form of DarkRP at the time which was BuildRP. We didn't really want to become a proper RP server (with maps like bangclaw and downtown), like all the other DarkRP servers. But it was clear the people wanted it so we did. This led on to getting the dedicated server as donations could pay for it, which led on to starting deathrun as we had the room for it on the dedicated server. And then that led on to starting more servers because we could and people wanted them. My point is we wouldn't have made it this far if it wasn't for the community. This has been an awesome community with a lot of great people in it. I may have lost interest in playing Gmod regularly years ago but I didn't lose interest in serving the community and doing what I can to help it move forward. Until now anyway. I need to move on. I said I would write up a big post thanking people but there is too many people over the years to mention, and I don't want to forget anyone or make anyone feel left out. So I would just like to thank everyone who has been apart of MG, all the regulars who have played, all the people who've donated to keep the servers up, all the staff that have kept order on the site and servers, all the developers who have helped shape the servers over the years, all the server managers who have helped with the burden, all the people who don't game anymore but still come by to see how it's all going. You're all awesome. When I see people talk of their own personal benefits from being apart of MG, such as making awesome new friends, having people to talk to, escaping the real world, helping with depression and so on... it makes me really proud. Seeing something ADTR & I started years ago lead to that is fantastic. So thank you. Peace, ikoN~

    Prop Hunt App (becausewhynot?)

    In-Game Name (list all known aliases): Riiloo Kakira' , Riiloo , //other// SteamID/Profile Link: http://steamcommunity.com/id/riiloo/ How old are you? 16 Do you have a microphone? If so, how often do you use it? I do have a mic yet rarely use it in-game. I may use it when on TeamSpeak3 or Discord. Total Garry’s Mod time played: 3357 Hours because no life. What is your current in-game play time on the Prop Hunt server? 4 Weeks 10 Hours probably 11? (again no life. HA!) Which Monumental servers do you play on regularly? DarkRP. Rarely Prop hunt. Explain with detail any previous admin or moderator experience: Current MGAU DarkRP Admin and use to be MGAU PropHunt Moderator. Why do you want to be Moderator? Prop Hunt is basically dead. Rarely ever players on it, and when there is, all players are new to the game, server and rules. Resulting in a few rule breaks. Some players will often mic spam. I may not be active much on Prop Hunt, nor anyone, but If having the chance to become PropHunt Moderator again, if it needs help with players I can just jump on and spectate. What language is Garry’s Mod coded in? Garry's Mod is coded in the LUA code Someone is constantly spamming music over their microphone, what do you do? I would use the '!gag Simon' command in chat, or 'ulx gag Simon' in console, warn the player not to mic spam as it can be irritating. After I would type '!ungag Simon' in chat or 'ulx ungag Simon' in console. If he continued to Mic Spam, I would re-use the command, but leaving it for a full round. Continuation after warned and gagged, would result in being kicked with the reason 'Mic Spam | Failure to listen'. If the player came back, I would either Perma-Gag him or give a short ban of 6-12 hours, reason being "Mic Spam | Failure to follow instructions | Warned" List three different ways a prop can hide illegally: Hiding in a body Hiding behind cracks n slots where hunters can not reach (E.G Back of the dumpsters on the 'Assault' Map) Finally Outside the Map. A player is found to be hiding in places where they cannot be killed, what do you do? (Not staff) Remember that specific spot, firmly warn the player to move. If he refuses to move I would message staff via '@ Simon is hiding in an illegal spot, please spectate,slay or Teleport him away' - (If staff) Remember the spot, firmly warn the player. Refusal to move, I would teleport the player out, after which firmly warning him. If he goes back there, I would teleport him somewhere else. If he continues to go there, I would slay him. Continuing on breaking the rule would result in a 6 Hour Ban. Reason of "Illegal Spot | Refusal to listen or move" 1) How many times have you been banned (link bans)? 1? I think 2) How long for? If I remember it was 2 Days. 3) Why? Minor Prop Spam. #GoodGuyYes Additional Information: #BringPropHuntBackToLife(andttt) Agreement: By completing this application you agree to have read the rules thoroughly and understand them clearly.

    Bill Joel's Mod App

    In Game Name / RP Name: Bill Joel SteamID / Profile Link: STEAM_0:0:46292596 Real Name (Just first name will do): Patrick Age (Don't lie, we can tell, really, we can.): 16 Do you have a mic and do you use it often: I use it most of the time I play. What is your playtime (Ask an admin to help you if you are not sure): 9w 3d 22hrs Which Monumental servers do you usually play on? DarkRP. How much in-game money do you have: $237713 Have you had any previous administration experience: No What is the capital of Kenya: Nairobi What is the median of this data set (2, 5, 6, 8 , 9 , 12, 15, 17): 8.5 Define the following:- RDM: Killing someone without a valid reason in a roleplay situation. RDA: Arresting someone without a valid reason or insufficient evidence in a roleplay situation. Fear RP: Means that a player must value there own life so they will avoid situations that could get them killed. Metagame: Acting on information that wasn't obtained through roleplay. A person spawns and starts prop abusing, what do you do: I would teleport to and tell that prop abuser that prop abuse is against the server rules. I would then warn them using Awarn and spectate them for a couple of minutes to see if they continue to break the rules. If I find that people who aren't involved with the rule breaking are being disruptive, I would teleport everyone involved in the sit to a secluded location and continue. If someone who is involved is being disruptive, I would gag them. If they are found prop abusing again I would explode/slay + give another warning. If they still continue prop abusing I would give them a ban around 3-8 hours. A player joins and starts threatening the server and other players, what do you do: Kick the player and permanently ban them. This is done to prevent the loss of player progress and protect players on the server. Two players call you over and accuse each other of RDM that you didn't witness, what do you do: I would teleport to the person who called first and bring the other person to our location (if they aren't already together). I would then ask each of them to explain what happened from their perspective. If either player interrupts anyone part of the sit I would gag them and continue with the sit. If anyone not involved in the sit was being disruptive I would bring all involved to a secluded location (eg a rooftop) and continue with the sit. While they are explaining their parts of the story I would be checking the damage logs and any other logs that are relevant to the situation (eg money logs if one accused the other of taking their money). If I find out who committed the RDM, I would explode/slay + Awarn them and give back anything that the person who was RDMed had lost. If I don't have enough evidence to prove who RDMed who, I would give both players back anything they had lost and tell them to avoid each other. If the guilty person is found to be RDMing again I would tell them that they've been warned once and they will be banned. I would then ban them depending on how many RDMs they committed (eg 1 day for 1 RDM, 2 days for 2 RDMs etc). Why do you want to be Moderator: I've been playing on the DarkRP server for around 2 years now and I feel like it's time that I gave back to the community. Have you ever been banned from Monumental's servers before? Yes. How many times have you been banned: (including all temporary bans) 2. How long was/were the ban(s): 1 day and 1 day. What was the reason behind the bans (list all bans): NLR During Raid and leave|1D|Juke RDA | Leaving never helps muppet | 1D | Frank Add extra comments that you think should be included if need be: I received these two bans when I was a less experienced player and didn't follow the rules. I've become a better player and have a greater understanding of the rules. Agreement: By completing this application you agree to have read the rules thoroughly and understand them clearly, you understand if any rules are broken whilst your application is being reviewed during the 2 week review time your application may void and risk being denied or removed. You understand that by submitting your application you are committing to monumental gaming and swear to always do the best thing for the community/server. You MUST understand the rules clearly and MUST follow them, this cannot be stressed enough for potential mods. You agree if you ever nag/winge/pester admin/mods to look at your application or to give you mod/admin, your application will be denied.

    I don't know where I'd be if I didn't choose to play on the Prop Hunt server, and have a bunch of randoms convince me to join TeamSpeak and talk. I have made many friends since then, and so I'd like to thank Monumental/IKon for that. Seriously, it's probably one of the few greatest things to happen to me in my life. See ya'll around~

    Jakew234's Ban Appeal/Apology

    Ban AppealIn Game Name: Jake Server SteamID: STEAM_0:0:36452082Server you were banned on: DarkRP, TeamSpeak and Forum Account Locked. When were you banned: Dark RP - Sun, 29 Jan 2017 TeamSpeak - I am unsure and don't have TeamSpeak installed on this computer, I can install and look if required. Forum Account - Sun, 29 Jan 2017 How long you were banned for: Permanently/Indefinitely for all accounts. Admin that banned you: ph33x What happened: I believe anyone who needs to know what happened knows, I don't want to cause any drama by explaining it here. I am happy to private chat about it. Why you think you should be unbanned: This post is both an apology and an appeal, I will understand if it is denied. I would like to apologise for the way in which I acted leading up to this ban. I was immature and, I caused drama and tension where it did not need to be. I am not going to try 'beat around the bush' and create a sob story. I was a c*** and I deserved what I got. However I would like to say I was never trying to jeopardize this community. Although I can't really come on much, if at all for the time being, I hate leaving on a bad note. I would be completely humbled if at least my Forum and TeamSpeak accounts could be unban on trial, for a long road to forgiveness. As I said above I am happy to discuss in further detail over private message. Most sincere apologies, Jake Server

    I was saying to the Mrs this morning "welcome the new member to our family" and she just rolls her eyes. Was a surprisingly long 10 hour build and had me cutting metal and driving to bunnings and bolt shops. But it lives and is about 12 hours through stress testing. There is no specific date Jaydon, but the measurement is now days and not weeks. It's the first time I've done a DC build and because it's a 90 minute drive away, things have to be planned 100% perfect or it will cost a lot to fix later. The biggest hurdle was yesterday, waiting 20 days for hardware I can't return, hoping it's not dead on arrival parts, missing cpu coolers backplate, stuff would not fit, needed a bios update to even boot with the new CPU, which meant I had to gut a CPU from another system I had to get it to even start. All that aside, all I see now is smooth sailing and some final dev work to bring it all together. Props to the few unnamed individuals who have been quietly assisting on the side to get things closer to production. For me, the work has hardly ended since wannacry so it will be nice actually playing a game for once, and RP will be my new 24/7er. (My steam 2 week used to be about 160 hours, now like 40) Shits so loud our dog didn't sleep last night.

    When I first met ikoN I was going by the name Ivan Ivanovitch Ivanovsky on some autistic flatgrass RP filled with propkilling and minge staff where he spent his days building hobo forts, If someone had told me then that he would be running an 8 thousand member Gmod community I would have laughed in their face spawned lockers and smacked them across the map. But despite having little interest in running a community and just wanting somewhere to chill four years later he's done just that, ikoN started a community that will last for many years to come and as Monumental is his baby it's only right that the name departs when he does as Monumental without ikoN is not Monumental. In my time at Monumental I turned from a server crashing troll to a moderator to admin super and beyond, I've made many friends but none among them stand out as much as ikoN, out of all the friends I have on steam and the many friends I've made online he's the one person I talk to most, ikoN has been a mentor and a great friend and I hope he enjoys the rest of his gaming days with the peace that he doesn't have the weight of a community bearing down on his shoulders. Despite knowing this was coming for months it's been heart wrenching to try and find the words, I look forwards to many days gaming with you and as is clear Monumental wishes you the best in your future endeavors. xoxo love Seuss

    Day & Night Cycles

    Hello fellow forum members, I'm going to re-bring up the much debated topic of day and night cycles. I know that previously when this feature is added, after a while players want to remove it due to some texture lighting errors. However, it would be great to seem a light cycle in role play once more. Timing of the day creates moods, which influences role play. For example night time can sketchy, cold, depressing which could influence gang movement, hobo movement and police operations. It also adds variety into game without needing a change in map/scenery. I've talking to some players today and this one topic which came up a few times. Thanks for taking the poll, Bobara.

    BiRDiE's Sandbox Moderator Application

    Look mate, I'll be honest with you, you've got a long way to go before I believe you'll be suitable for moderator. None of what is written here is meant as a personal attack. I have tried to be as constructive as possible, if anything comes across this way, I apologise. Now, Drowsy and Valence have done a pretty good job of listing these things, but I'd like to add my input and experiences with you as well. and Back when you were Regular +, you would connect to the server and teleport to myself or Malice, often times without asking, when we were occupied with something else. You would often claim to have magically fixed your issues in a day, and it seemed you were trying to hint at getting +1s. Unfortunately mate, this along with your recent post on your app, have honestly not helped your chances at all. You seemed to believe that being moderator was great fun and easy work. Sure, it certainly can be. But the thing is, many times it can become rather stressful: 10 minges are on the server at once, and you're the only staff, you've got to triple check the ids, to make sure you don't have the wrong one in the clipboard, one of them is mic spamming, got to mute him. One has started prop pushing, got to jail him, someone left, make sure you have his ID. All while trying to deal with another person who has been minging all day. While that example was a tad extreme, it shows that it's not always sunshine and rainbows. From what I and many others have seen, a fair few these so called "mingers" have just done mild things to set you off. The issue is that you take things too harshly, and allow yourself to get upset over the smallest things. While I understand these things upset you (and I know we all have different levels of tolerance), to be staff you need to be able to put up with people's bullshit and make the right calls at the right time. Patience is important, and I feel you lack it as of now. This is a quote that bothers me a fair bit. When staffing, oftentimes, you will be on your own. This means you have to make decisions quickly and rationally. What that quote shows me is that you are relying too heavily on others to help and "fix" your problems when really, it takes commitment and action from the individual to fix the individual's problems. I'm not saying go it alone. I'm saying, you need to act in order for other people's help to mean anything. You've got to help them help you. Know what I mean? Your mod app is honestly, pretty decent, however, there are two things in particular I believe you should elaborate further on. What would you do if the player were to come back and continue? Think to how you have seen staff handle this in the past. What would the punishment for the other player be? A kick? A ban? Elaborate further please. The current image you have created for yourself is not good. The angry outbursts you frequently have leaves a bad taste in many player's mouths. It gives the impression that you would be "trigger happy". Banning, kicking, gagging, etc. people for the slightest things. This does not make people want you to become moderator as you can come across as immature and easily upset, which is not the qualities needed in a moderator. Now, I'd also like to note on your inactivity on sandbox. I have not seen you in some time on there. Activity is important not only for your application but also when you have moderator. The server needs to be staffed regularly so that all users at all times can have the best experience. Inactive staff does not help this. You've also done a fair bit of backseat moderating which is obviously a no no and isn't particularly helpful. If you see a minge on the server report it to staff, and let them deal with it. You may believe that backseat moderating makes you appear a more viable candidate for moderator, but it usually just winds up being unhelpful. Unfortunately mate, you've created a bad image for yourself on the server. Frequent outbursts of anger over small things, rudeness, pestering staff... None of this has helped your image. And so, I'm going to have to issue you with a; -1

    Monumental Gaming aye. The first gaming community that I would proudly say to anyone that I am apart of. This place is what kick started and enticed me into gaming. I will hold the memories of people huddling around a campfire on the top of the hospital of Evilmelon and telling the stories of the Maori people in the land of the long white cloud and never forget them. Forging the relationships with players, meeting new people and having others recognize you when you join the servers and say "Hey it's Te". That is something special, something you wouldn't get from very many other communities. It's been a pleasure to be apart of the community for 3 years or so even though during that time I was popping in and out. It's been an absolute pleasure ikoN and I'm grateful for what you have created and passed on to ph33x. I am sure ph33x has great plans for the future of us all and the servers, it's evident in the time he is putting into creating and releasing content for us. I'm along for the ride until the bitter end so lets see where this takes us. Cheers cunts. See yahs on the other side.

    I've been pondering over this for around a week now, and as I read other forum member's posts, others have been considering this too. Currently on RP, the two most common methods of money making are: Gun Dealing as Gun Dealer, or Black Market Dealer Printer farming, achieved by purchasing a money printer or stealing other players' money printers I recognise there are other alternatives, being cooking Meth, and selling various items as Merchant, however these are not taken advantage of, as the items sold are either not valued or the process to make money off it is tedious and time consuming. I believe that, yes, players should have to work for an income on RP, be it tedious or not, but there are several cons present in the current system: People always flock to Money Printing and Gun Dealing, this leads to a consistent cycle of RP events that always seem to happen, I've identified the process as this: Group of people go as a gang (bloods, crips, gopnik, mafia), Other people spawn in Money Printer or sell guns, Gang raids said people, takes money printer and guns, Gun Dealers restock, people attempt negotiation to receive printer back, repeat. This is essentially the RP economy cycle. People rarely go as Merchant and profit of it, as generally nobody is interested in the goods they provide. People can not take advantage of the Banker role, as it is difficult to achieve a somewhat successful Bank. People can not take advantage of the Meth Cook job, as it is quite tedious and time consuming. People choose not to take advantage of the Hitman/Ninja job, as rarely profit is involved. The problems I have picked out are these: People flock to Gun Dealing due to either a demand for guns, thus a way to capitalise on the demand. Merchants items they sell are generally irrelevant. Cigarettes do nothing majorly visually other than some rather illogical text that gets in the way saying "You Smoke. Therefore you are cool.", Water Bottles (at this current place in time) serve no purpose other than to relieve drug effects (I understand dev work is being done to expand the Water Bottle's uses), Food Cartons are just not bought as they rarely are a cheaper alternative to Vending Machines, Microwaves are far more efficient however, Merchants usually only sell 1 handed guns, which is the main reason you get people as this job. Meth Cooking is just a plain pain in the ass to do with the Grav Gun as you could have a really efficient system (if you're some form of God), and then you put one thing in a wrong place and you have to essentially restart placement. For Bankers, there is a default bank building, but the map has no default bank storage (e.g. the shelves of the last map, instead of a vault), this can discourage players from doing some really awesome builds. There just simply isn't enough reasons to place a hit on people in RP, or people go out and do vengeance runs themselves. Potential solutions to correct these errors are this: Split Gun Dealing into a few roles, I've seen this done on Faded Servers, but they executed this poorly with Heavy, Medium, and Light. I believe if we were to allocate 1h weapons to one class (increase shipment price), weaker 2h weapons (such as PP19 Bizon, Remington 870, AK47, for example) to another class (decrease shipment price a bit), and the stronger weapons (G3A3, KS23, etc.) to a heavier class. I also believe we should incorporate more FAS weapons as this will lead to a more thorough gun choice and a far more diverse Gun Market. Remove Guns from the Merchant, I don't see how this is RP suitable to have the Merchant sell Guns, if we were to take a lighter approach, perhaps leave him with P226 and Glock-20 Pistols, nothing else. Microwaves can sell for a lot, I suggest also increasing the price of these, and giving the Merchant either infinite spawns of a Microwave, or implement a Microwave Ownership system so that the Merchant can open a Microwave to sale ownership, and therefore the Merchant no longer owns the Microwave, but the purchaser does, and give them 20 spawns, like Kevlar Armour. Change the Map, it's got plenty of problems to name, it's a boring default layout, and is definitely not the best for RP, it's basically a Gang/Police RP Map and individuals do not have much of a chance to thrive, I will make a separate suggestion for a map later, currently looking through some. Heck, I'd even go as far to say that I prefer Evilmelon to the current one, and fuck evilmelon ammiright? Give Meth Cooks the chance to use a Phys Gun with Meth Cooking, even if we have to make a separate Donator Only "Advanced Meth Cook" role for this, Grav Guns are horrible and tedious to use for it, I'm alright with the time it takes though. Nerf Money Printing a bit, people make tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands per day of money printer farming, I also heavily suggest Dikkus' previous suggestion of Lithium Printers (I think that's what they're called?), they're a wonder to use, for me, at least. Money Printer Farming is the absolute core reason of why our economy is fucked over, it's too OP. We need more legal ways to make money, either with Scuba underwater diving for treasure, like Peter said in Bobara's post, maybe introduce a new item for the Merchant, that is like the health equivalent of the Food Carton, like Morphine or something, and is a cheaper alternative to the Health Station. We could also try something like a Bus Driver or taxi service, with an exclusive job role for this. I welcome people to put new money making suggestions on this thread, I'm sure we'd all be intrigued at what everybody thinks. But not mining, never mining, it doesn't make sense to have a random mine in a goddamned town. Implement a new rule that states that if you have failed to kill somebody within a certain amount of time (5 minutes perhaps?), you may not continue to kill them, but you may hire a hitman instead, gotta give them a chance to kill too. So yeah, that's my suggestion, I will be revising this over the next few days or so, so make sure to keep checking

    Valence Quartz / DarkRP Application

    I have to agree with Lenin here. Including what he has said, you have been mingy, stupid and arrogant whilst playing on RP lately. One incident I recall is just plain stupidity, you had a wooden boat you'd build on the water, I told you that you couldn't base there as a theif and in response you unfroze the whol build while on the extremely glitchy water, I then kicked you for it and explained what you did wrong (I shouldn't have had to, anyone with a brain knows not to unfreeze builds all at once let alone when it's on the glitchy water) Further, you have been extremely arrogant whilst on RP, I'm not sure if you think your status as a SB mod makes you untouchable (Protip: It doesn't) but you've been acting like an all round cunt to players on RP. If you didn't have obligations on sandbox you would've certainly copped a ban by now. TL;DR: -1, you're too immature, arrogant and sometimes a downright minge.

    Valence Quartz / DarkRP Application

    Prior to stating this, I do acknowledge that Kerry/Valence is a current and successful staff member on MG Sandbox, however this statement is based entirely upon Kerry/Valence's performance on DarkRP. Kerry Zeus, I've found is generally a typical police RP'er, however I've found, in the heat of the moment on DarkRP, when confronted with the rules, Kerry can not stand tall. Somedays Kerry isn't a problem and is a casual player, others, Kerry tends to be generally immature with handling of things and understanding certain things of the rules, for example, I recall kicking Kerry twice for repeated minging whilst I along with many others were RPing as Gopnik at the time. After Kerry was kicked he would cry abuse after a perfectly justified, and might I add, lenient staff decision, he only kept quiet after being told that if his rant continued, he would be banned. Clearly, not the attitude of a staff member. Another thing that I've found with Kerry, is that when general 'banter" was present, Kerry was more than willing to give out plenty of it, but was entirely intolerable of receiving it. For these reasons it is impossible for me to be comfortable with stating that he would be a somewhat competent RP Staff member. Therefore this is a -1. If you change your overall attitude OOC and bring over your attitude you have on Sandbox, I will be more than willing to change it. However at this stage I am not convinced whatsoever.

    Monumental Tribute Video (Not really)

    Just thought I would attempt to make something, even if just a mildly humorous video, out of the dumpster fire of a recording session for that "Time of my life" MG Tribute Video. It's not an actual thing, so don't expect anything particularly good, it's not intended to be. Anyway, hopefully someone will enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed making it. -Sparrow

    Nicholas White and Thomas Ryder

    Attention all staff: This is a Tit for tat mid night situation. It all started with the fearRP of James John, which Dikkis Shruged off as a little clash. after that we left you alone to follow Dikkis, as we returned we were attacked verbally and you guys continued to provoke and abuse us. we gave you shit as well as you giving us shit. RDM< NLR< FearRP< the list could go on, we have pictures of you basing as a terrorist with a Gopnik, After Dikkis left it was chaos amongst the hole server. if your going to be so insolent to Report us when you and your boyfriend James John started it, i find it pathetic. 1. Your story is wrong, yes we did shoot you but that was after you RDM'D Nicholas about 15 minutes after we tried to steal your car, Please organise yourselves before making a horrible ban appeal. 2. I know im on a fine line and i know breaking rules to defend myself against these people is not a smart choice. That being said these late night traumas have been going on for a very Long time. We have screenshots of them breaking rules but don't want to take any actions on them. I think all this shit should be dropped and we leave each other alone within the server. If anything else is needed please message me or contact me in game. Sorry for hurting your feelings Mean Beanhello, yoursn sincerely Thomas Ryder.

    Ban Appeal: Gustavo Pollos

    Ban AppealIn Game Name: Gustavo PollosSteamID: 76561198081556448Server you were banned on: DarkRP When were you banned: 7th July(today) 5:25pm (ish) How long you were banned for: One Day I believe. Admin that banned you: Nick Valentine What happened: Alex Forza accused me of RDM. I killed him because he asked me to. I brought one witness who agreed with everything I said. As I offered to bring another witness I was banned without a chance. The talk went for a while. Nick constantly talking over me and being biased towards Alex Forza. Reason Given: Lying in the sit multiple times | RDM | Being a smartass | ~Valentine Why you think you should be unbanned: I feel I didn't get a chance to fully explain myself. And I have not broken any rules. My friend, Wilhelm Rictofen, was 'accidentally banned' because we had similar names at the time. Nick admits this, but my friend is YET to be unbanned. In Summary: I have not broken any rules, I was not able to explain myself fully. Thanks for considering.

    Ban Appeal: Gustavo Pollos

    - I was not being a smartass (I don't see why you think that) - I was not lying (If summarising the 5 minute conversation is lying, then I lied) - I was not aiming a gun for no reason (if you let me explain, he was pushing in line, that is what started everything) - I don't believe this thread should be locked - I did nothing wrong. - I have got nearly two weeks on this server. I VERY RARELY break the rules, and even if I do it's not on purpose. o I am going to extent your ban because you keep saying that Alex said "Shoot me please" when you had your gun out at him for no reason - Your going to extend* my ban because of what you thought I did originally? - It wasn't for no reason, if you had listened, I could have explained the whole story. YOU pissed me off - You were actually quite triggered, and yelling, as soon as you teleported me You have no proof what so ever to cover your appeal - I have two witnesses. If only I had time to get to the second one, without you jumping onto !menu. talking over you? You were typing in chat mate I gave you multiple chances at talking no sorry TYPING. - I was explaining myself and you were like 'NONONON mayte dont lie' (very loudly I must say) - Let me type me story, before jumping to conclusions. Finally, I must say. Why were you so angry, and why did you take Alex Forza's side, before anything had been discussed? Very disrespectful indeed.

    Upcoming Changes

    Jeez so many good memories of MG, from when I joined on Evilmelon and we had Scars, I had a Bugatti Veyron and I remember auto gun shops being a novel thing and no one knowing how to build them. Another wonderful thing was meeting amazing people, When I first met Carlos Garcia he didn't know how to wire or build and I had to teach him :P. Some other amazing people that I remember include many of the old staff and old players that have left the community now. MG has changed so much over its time, I remember when it was legal to have one wide KOS tunnels with one-way props and small windows. I'm really gonna miss MG as I spent a lot of my childhood growing up playing it, so so so many good memories, from sneaking down from my room back into the lounge at midnight to come on and play, to when I first got Mod. It's been an amazing time and MG will always have a place in my heart, Thank you so much ikoN for forming this community and keeping it up as long as you have it has been a great ride. If my computer had not been reset I would insert all my old photos from MG in here. Cheers its been great.

    My first ever made song!

    Ok bud. I'll be honest it does not sound good but there is room for improvement. Depending if you know how to do this, look it up on google and see if you can make these changes. 1: That bass guitar is too distorted it sounds terrible, you need to lighten the distortion so it complements the sound of the bass not destroy it, let the strings do the work. 2: The 'Crash' symbol lasts way too long and is too loud in the mix. it needs to be brought down in volume and the 'Tail' if they symbol needs to be more brief. (not last as long.) 3: The Snare has a tone to it that i reckon based on taste needs to be removed. this can be found at around 300 - 500 Hz so take a look at that Equalizer and take off 4db in that frequency range. Maybe boost around 1000 - 4000 Hz to give the snare more character. 4: Overall when your playing these instruments I've noticed an inconsistency or an offset in timing of your notes. your not playing them at the right time and it's too scattered. 5: There are gaps in your mix that need to be addressed. Add some reverb to that drum kit and maybe a delay on the snare and kick. Bring in some Guitar to fill in with some powah chords and tell a story. Bring the mood of the song up and down, slow when sinister and fast when you need to be furious. Tell a story with the instruments. (make love to the..... Wait a minute.)

    DarkRP Court Case

    My dream is to unban Roger Rogerson for an hour and hold a trial against him in the court room, he'd be free to bring on any witnesses he wants and he'd have to RP for his life to get an unban (obviously he'd be found guilty and re banned, but my god it would be the most RP intensive trial you'd ever see in your life)

    Jakew234's Ban Appeal/Apology

    I'm just putting this here as I was part of the whole events that lead to Jake's eventual ban (as most know), this situation is one where there was no clear misunderstanding, but a clear wrongdoing, and the only way to right these wrongs is for the one in the wrong to balls up, own up, and apologize, that is what Jake has done here, and I believe he deserves at least some credit for doing these things. Therefore I believe that Jake deserves a chance to talk and explain his actions, and if both parties are willing to partake in this, then I would wholeheartedly support Jake's return to the community. In all honesty, some of us miss him, and it'd be nice to have Jake back, consider this a case of 'The Prodigal Son', perhaps.
