  2. Please continue the discussion on https://zo-rp.com/ from now on, thanks ❤️ accounts have been transferred from here so hopefully you will be able to login. Registration is disabled over there while we continue working on this. I even corrected the topic title there! Sorry for the brightness, will worry about that at a later time.
  3. I found a few more memories, but I think this is the last of it considering I can't get into my Photobucket, some of my old ZO-RP artwork/admin sigs etc. Also featuring the one I made for Azzy. Remember these @Burridge?

    I understand. That's why I call it a bonus. For it to be old school again, most of the community would have to come back, and we'd probably have to get a couple years younger. 😆 Anyways, don't worry about expectations, Burridge. We're not expecting to go back in time or anything like that. Really. Thanks again. 😄

    I'm so happy to hear this, ZORP has a lot of memories on it, and it will be a great experience to finally hop in ZORP once again!, Much love Burridge and thanks again for considering our needs 🙂❤️
  6. To clarify on this point specifically; S.T.A.R.S. and Umbrella will be coded into the gamemode from the beginning, well at least their base gates, spawns etc. I will probably keep the vehicles out until the factions are in use again. An idea I have been toying with for years and years now is dynamic factions. Instead of having hard coded factions like S.T.A.R.S. and Umbrella I wanted to make a system which means unofficial factions became the official factions without the need to hard code anything. It would have meant more diversity and creativity however, I do not think I will go this route yet simply because such a system would be complicated and take a long time to get right, the effort required for such a system is not worth it at this stage in my opinion. That might change if things go well though. I have no doubts that when it goes live on the hosted tab that it will attract players. SA-MP seems to mostly be RP servers these days anyway, the biggest servers are at least - even if you take the Russian servers out of the mix. The playerbase of the mod has changed over the years and the servers that remain are mostly RP. There are better games out there for team deathmatch based gamemodes, whereas the type of RP you get with SA-MP servers is rather unique. I think it's more of a high chance that we will get to a beta stage for internal testing among the community here - meaning not on the hosted tab. It's whether we can get beyond that which I think we can, but we need to make sure the gamemode is stable, has enough features to bring people in, and some nice mapping, mapping probably being one of the most important aspects. In fairness, it isn't returning. Yes, it will have aspects that are the same such as the teams, team colours and core mechanics, but it won't be entirely the same as old school - if it was I feel it wouldn't be worth doing because the old school gamemode had a lot of problems and was very bare bones when you look at it critically. I realise I am being pedantic with this point but I feel it's one that should be clarified simply to avoid disappointment.

    This makes me happy. Personally, ever since the last time ZO-RP reopened and closed, I've always been comfortable with the idea that the old ZO-RP would never return. I still am. But giving it a shot like this, even if just with a few people behind it, is like a great bonus. I'm sure none of us have high expectations per se, but are rather excited to be able to give RP another shot. So thank you for allowing us the opportunity. You're the one who will spend time to make it happen after all. 😄
  8. Amazing. Thanks for taking the time to write the post and thank you for being transparent with us. Understandably with the lower player count, I've talked with a few of the players and decided if the RP server was to become live we'd most likely be making unofficial factions which would still be a great thing. I think and hopefully think that people understand that the experience might not be the same currently with the low active population in the community but who knows if we get the RP server and it goes live maybe the community will grow. Even though the chance of the RP server is slim I do appreciate the effort you put through with the community and especially your thoughts on this topic. Thanks @Boone and @Burridge

    Much love, Burridge! I know there'll be some happy players, including myself!
  10. Hello everyone, it is finally time to talk about RP. I realise several players have joined here wanting to see RP again and I, for the most part have been dismissive or ignored it. After seeing a message on Discord last night I have decided to respond here instead. At first I was apprehensive about doing anything for RP in a public, every since we shut it in 2017 I have still worked in mini features every now and again if time allowed me to do so. Some of those features even made it into the current TDM server, such as the Evacuation minigame. I mentioned on Discord a bit ago when discussing with a member of the server about the RP server and how I would be willing to place the old script online for those who might want it, that definitely drew some attention. However, doing that would not really be feasible. The reason for that is that the old scripts just do not work without major editing, or entire systems needing re-writing or I need to source old outdated plugins to make them work. The latest code is from 2017, a version known as RC5 however, that script is incomplete, and uses code from more than just myself which I felt uncomfortable reusing today. So, what I feel as though the best way forward in this regard is to make a new script. The base features in theory would not take too long to make as most of it can be taken from TDM's codebase, add some RP features and we have a gamemode! There is a caveat to this though; there will not be enough players to begin with, or even at all for there to be organised factions in place. So while S.T.A.R.S. and Umbrella can be in place in code but no leaders or members to begin with. If players join and we get regulars we can place someone trusted to lead the organised factions. My days as S.T.A.R.S. chief are long gone! 👴 The experience, therefore, will not be what you might have wanted as there is more than likely going to be less players, and the factions will more than likely not be in place to begin with as like I explained above there won't be enough players for such things to be viable. Finally, I am not going to make a promise that it will be complete. Keep expectations low to avoid disappointment. One thing I will say, is when I have all the basic features in place I will open a server up for testing between us and I will make a section on here for bug reports etc. If it all goes well, we'll merge these forums and have an RP section and a TDM section. Sorry if this post seems rushed or doesn't fully get my point across it's because I am very tired. Feel free to use this thread to discuss and ask further questions.
  11. Unfortunately, imageshack has absolutely rekt most of my screenshots. There are so many moments that it's difficult to pick the highlights. I'll try to access those screenshots once more. Edit: So, yeah, all the screenshots are technically there, but they're just not available anymore. What a bummer. To think I saved them there exactly to prevent this kind of loss. Anyways, I'm going to reminisce a few moments here: - When I first joined the server, I remember meeting Jakesta Powley and Vegeta Slix (I think) and just cruising around with them with my - at the time - deplorable RP skills. Simple, but fun. It's what hooked me to the server after all. - Most safezones at the top of the Emerald Isle. Especially when Rufus Shinra was on as a tyrant. I had to wear brown pants for the occasion. - My time at Red Tabs was definetely the main highlight of all my time on ZORP. RPing I was brother to Micaso Rodriguez (SOMEHOW), getting raided by The Survivors, and then later on raiding Red Tabs as one of them (had to highlight this even more, because it was one of the coolest RPs I've had), filling the stations with friends, having conversations at the gate... everything. - Being evil in UC was fun for some time. I'd never RPed a scientist, and I did that for some time playing Nicolas Lawson. I'd come up with all sorts of stuff. - Everytime we went "out of bounds" as SU was cool, because the RPs were exquisite. I participated in that only two or three times, but it was memorable nonetheless. - To be fair, all "out of bounds" RPs I participated in, with SU or not, were fun and different. I remember a particular RP in which @Vaccaria died and I, as Vic Marston, lost my shit. That's enough, I guess. 😄

    Death Bug

    I tested it with Seren, it seems that any death that tied to explosions will teleport you to Blueberry or possibly anywhere outside the play area (Respawned at Grove Street once). Tried with a car, heli, and the dodo. All 3 spawned us outside the play area with no weapons. It didn't give us a beer but it did give us a cigar. Did notice that when Seren had a cigar on his hand I could not see it while when I had the cigar on my hand he could not see it either. After /team'ing the cigars do stay when you have regained your weapons but same situation with seeing your own cigar without others seeing it.

    Death Bug

    Hello, well i have been playing around with the server and i crashed my dodo into a building and died, well after that i respawned at blueberry with a beer bottle in my hand. However, I respawned myself using /team, as a survivor, the beer bottle didnt go away.

    Hey Guys!

    Thanks, man! It's great to run into an old ZO-RP player.
  19. The Mighty S.T.A.R.S. base with the old elevator.
  20. Some of my fondest memories on this server / in this community was constantly going on he forums and checking if any of the factions had any slots available. I remember I didn't quite make it into other factions besides Red Tabs. I remember writing my application and reviewing it multiple times. Posting it and waiting to get an interview. I remember getting my interview late at night and when I was accepted into Red Tabs I was jumping with joy. Remember sharing this moment with @Marston, RPing that he had gotten injured and I was doing some BS medical Roleplay. Through Red Tabs I remember the mechanics associated with it, refueling gas stations etc. Getting our own Heli. Red Tabs front entrance being updated. Having to get a macro to pre-load RP /me's. I remember the unofficial factions I was apart of: USMC and Forelli Crime Family. Thoroughly understanding Role play through mistakes and was taught by kind community members what was right and wrong. Definitely remember some of the people who partook parts of the journey with me.
  21. Have some very old screenshots.
  22. Starting up the discussion to remember good and old times for either ZO-RP or ZO-TDM. It can be from any moment whether good or bad, from your time in any faction (STARS, UC, Red Tabs, The Survivors, Tyrants, or an unofficial faction). If you have any pictures for old times sake toss them in there and share your memorable memories as well.

    Hey Guys!

    Hey Guys!

    Most of you may not remember me, but I used to be an Admin on the old RP server, I played as Seren_Kings. It feels great to be back with the community. 🙂
  26. ZOTDM 18.09.2020 For patches going forward they will now be versioned based on the date of the last edit done to the gamemode. The date format is DD.MM.YYYY. I feel as though having this as a versioning method means people can see when the server was last updated much easier. General Changes The gamemode text on the SA-MP client now shows as "Zombie TDM DD.MM.YYYY" as having the word Zombie in the gamemode text makes it more likely to be found when players search for Zombie servers. The Play area is now the whole of the Las Venturas island rather than just Fort Carson and surrounding areas. Civilian and Zombie spawns are now back in the city. Added Hospital antivirus spawn in the city. Added vehicles to the city area. Removed the textdraw showing the version since the version is now just a date. That's it for this release. Suggestions can be posted: https://zotdm.com/forum/3-suggestions/ Bug Reports can be posted: https://zotdm.com/forum/4-bug-reports/
  27. ZOTDM 2.2.3 This patch is small considering the length of time between this and 2.2.2. This patch was worked on today. I plan to have some more patches come through in the coming weeks/months. General Changes Added dynamic weather which changes every hour Added /antidote for S.T.A.R.S. players Added the ability to buy full HP from the weapon shop for $2000 Balance Changes /bite and /inject now have a 15 second cooldown (down from 30 seconds) Armour now only costs $2000 Halved the score requirement for S.T.A.R.S and Umbrella to 75 (down from 150) That's it for this release. Suggestions can be posted: https://zotdm.com/forum/3-suggestions/ Bug Reports can be posted: https://zotdm.com/forum/4-bug-reports/
