1296hr's on GMOD 40189 minutes on the server
How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?:
I can bring creative and new idea's to the server by making the server be immersed in events and role play by including most to all regiments even though that may be difficult I can also make events enjoy able through feedback and learning new ways I can also do some rp or comms leading up to the event to gather interest before the event starts
Have you participated in many of our Events?:
I have participated in many events since I've joined in April and I've enjoyed them all from campaigns to normal events I've also been EC's in some of them being BX droids to Trandosion pirates
Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools?:
I'm fairly familiar with Gmod's wide variety of tools but I do not know all of them but I'm willing to learn
Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses:
Vanilla Hyperspace Tool: Even though this is a new tool recently added to the server I've seen EM's use this to create the immersed feeling of a ship coming out of hyperspace. The EM chooses a ship they want to come out of hyper space choose the location and the sound plays letting the server know a ship came out of hyperspace. Advanced Duplicator 2 Tool: This tool allows EM's to spawn in creations they have already built in single player into the server this valuable time and effort it also helps to keep the event set up short and quick so the player base can hop into the action as soon as possible. Teleporter tool: This tool helps the player get from spawn into the action quicker if they die instead of running the entire way back and them getting bored this helps keep player base entertained while if the teleporter wasn't there they would be bored running all the way back
Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?:
I am fairly sure how much the server can handle and I do know try and not go over the top as it may result in a server crash or worse but from my knowledge I'm fairly sure but I'm willing to learn
Do you understand that you are not allowed to abuse your ULX rank outside of events? Provide 3 examples detailing different situations that would be considered abuse:
I know not to abuse ULX codes as it is against server rules here are some examples of how it could be considered abuse. Weapon spawning: You shouldn't spawn weapons in for yourself as it is not in your kit and you're not allowed to use them. This would also be considered fail rp as you're not meant to have that certain weapon you should only spawn it in if you're allowed to. No-Clip: This is considered a ULX abuse as you can move to locations quicker and easier but that doesn't mean you're allowed to which you're not as it is considered fail rp and ULX abuse. Tool abuse: Tool abuse is when staff use their gravity gun or tool gun against the player base in a unfair way for example grabbing players and freezing them making them not move and freeze in the air also the tool when you can colour players and give players tools when they are not meant to have them.
All of these examples and my explaining is outside of events and without permission from a higher up.
Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before:
I’ve had many experiences as event characters and I’ve experienced many events as a player (clone/Jedi) I’ve enjoyed all of this events and hope to enjoy more. A recent experience as a EC was in @Cryo’s recent event on Geonosia where I played the Geonosian leader. The role of the EC was to do passive rp while the player base reached closer to the base and myself get captured. I enhanced the experience by speaking a different language in hostile comms and during when I got captured I spoke “Geonosian” to them threatening my capturer. They intern tortured me until the map changed.
On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have?:
To be completely honest I'm either a 6 or 7 but I'm mostly a 6
On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands?:
I have never been staff on any server before I do know very limited codes but I'm willing to learn if that's what it takes but I would said a 5-6
Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master:
The recent events have really made me think of what it would be like being a em and I've had idea's in the past on how a event could be better and how I could make events for the player base fun and enjoyable I've also had idea's that could involve regiments and rp so the server is happy and I'm making it fun
Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)?:
Yes I realise that most events go wrong or some events go wrong you can't go back and retry as that makes it really bad all you have to do is play along with it and go with it no one sticks to the script all the time. If the event does go wrong well it goes wrong you take responsibility, you ask for feedback for next time and you do better next time.
How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events?:
I'm very confident in doing that but I do get nervous every now and then and I may panic but in the end I'm always willing to learn and it's something I will have to get used to if I do get a chance to become a EM.
1. An event doesn't go to plan and General Grievous is crushed by an elevator. Players are laughing at you. What do you do?
I would calm myself but also chuckle but I would give myself a voice amplifier and say "General Grievous has escaped through the vents in the elevator! He is heading to the 4th floor! Hurry troopers get up there!" I would then tp the person using !Bring Grievous to the 4th floor and since he is already the Grievous model using the !revent present he wouldn't have to be remodeled. (This would be on gg_venator_extensive
2. A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react?
I wouldn't listen to them as I'm worrying about having the majority of the player base enjoy events instead of just one person not enjoying my events if they continue admins and moderators can deal with it as it then falls under a staff issue. EDIT: (This depends on what he is bad mouthing for example I would ask why are you saying ___ and then from that I would take it in and get feedback from it but if they are just completely bad mouthing then I would do that (This was notified by snake so i made this edit to show)). If what the person is saying is genuine feedback I’d cop it on the chin and admit ok this went wrong what do you think I should do next time? I would obviously say this with no disrespect.
3. You have to go AFK in the middle of an event you are running and there are no backups available. What should you have done to avoid this?
I would make sure when I do events I would have the whole event of me not being interrupted also I would also help avoid this by always asking EM's if they could be a back up for me in events because you don't know what is going to happen.
4. Players and a few staff members are complaining about the amount of lag they're dealing with during your event. How do you resolve this?
I would resolve this by clearing decals and rag dolls using the tool command I would also get rid of any unnecessary props and npcs to make sure the server is going to be stable
Event Example: Before the Event:
I would tell navy to get coordinates to Shili and make them go into hyperspace (If we're on ship).
EC's:I would need 3 EC's one as Senator Kalir another playing a villager and another for the blacksun leader
Briefing: I would make the notice of troopers pack up all training's and head to briefing, I would model myself to models/tastik/secc/secc.mdl using !model and rename myself to the name given to me. I would then set myself up and wait for the troopers to come in. I would then do the briefing as follows "Troopers we have had reports from the Togruta homeworld of Shili that the Black sun are attacking and pillaging the villages the Torgruta senator Kalir has sent a request for help and we're being sent down there to stop this pillaging." I would then spawn LAATs and they would take off and I would switch maps to gm_emp_bush
Setup: I would put my dupes down of the village the black sun FOB and the republic embassy I would model Senator Kalir (senator has a pistol) to models/player/jedi/togruta.mdl and give him a pistol then I would model the Villager (who is a child) to models/jazzmcfly/jka/younglings/jka_young_shak.mdl Finaly the Black sun leader (Has the smuggler present) to models/jedi_cultist/jka_cultist.mdl I would also be spawn black sun soldiers using this model models/valley/lgn/cgi pack/blacksun_soldier/blacksun_soldier.mdl and using this gun models/weapons/synbf3/c_ee3.mdl After I have told the EC's what they need to do and how they need to act and I've set everything up I would move on. The way I would model the EC’s is by using !model (name) (model name) On map Briefing:
"Troopers welcome to the planet of Shili the Senator is currently trying to help villages towards the NE while we have reports thanks to NID that the black sun has set up a FOB toward the NW troopers you can choose where you want to go first the pilots will take you to those locations where you wish remember we are trying to save the togruta and capture the leader not kill him troopers head out"
Event: The troopers would either go to the NE or the NW the troopers at the NE would be met with little resistance while the troopers at the NW would be met with a tough resistance. If the troopers manage to break through the black sun surrounding the village and save the senator and the civilians they will be taken to the republic embassy toward the south were they would be kept safe and asked if they know anything. If they don't manage to save the senator and the civilians I would say "troopers how could you let this happen the senator and the village populace is dead! Troopers we've lost this village lets hope we can get that leader, move to the NW" The troopers at the NW would be attacking a fortified FOB with the leader inside if they manage to break through and take captive the leader they would then exfill from the LAATs the pilots are using and we would head back to base/ship. If the troopers kill the leader I would respond with saying "Troopers! I told you not to kill the leader, well we can't undo what we've already done troopers go to exfill the LAAT's are waiting" Throughout the event I would be spawning in NPCs and drop ships I would also be doing this for the black sun trying to attack the embassy to get the senator and kill the child villager I would also make sure the black sun leader and the senator are doing comms rp throughout the event to make passive rp and the senator and the Black sun leader will be saying things over Voice comms
After the event is over I would change the map back to the map we're scheduled on Briefing (Success): "Well done troopers you've all done the republic proud today I can tell you that the leader will stand before republic court and be tried. The senator will also go back to Shili to rebuild the villages there. Troopers you've made our relations with the togruta better. The senator would now like to say some words...
Senator: “Thank you very much for saving my planet from those vile beings I will be going to see the chancellor personally to tell him how well you did here and that I’ll be improving relations with Shili and the Togrutans with the Republic"
"You should all be proud of yourselves troopers now on to placements goes as follows... Dismissed"
The leader would go get interrogated by CG who would be asking why is he doing this and who was he hired by. The senator would leave with the child to Corusant Briefing (Failure):
"Troopers What can I say that was not the best... The senator is dead as well with the village and the Blacksun leader is still alive, troopers I cannot say anything more than that was a utter disgrace. Troopers dismissed" Briefing (One objective Complete:) "Troopers you did well for the most part but you failed one objective (I then say things relating to the obj they failed) troopers placements as followed... Dismissed and troopers don't let that happen again"
Passive rp after the event would as follow from above but differently as one objective was failed.
After the event I would say if anyone has any feedback please pm me to help me to improve next time
This was my first ever staff application and I was nervous so if you have any feedback please notify me and I will respond thank you.
