  1. So I’ll just quickly say, cause there will be people thinking “This guy legit left like not even 2 months ago” which is true and yeah fair point. I won’t get too into detail but long story short, at the time was sort of flat out with just life. Not flat out enough to have no time for the server but enough to be fairly inactive for the roles I had and to do the jobs in those positions well. Which kind of ended up with me, despite not playing, getting this weird burnt out feeling and just never wanting to hop on or anything like that. Anywho looking back what I should’ve done is just left RHC and then taken a slightly extended LOA from the server/EM and then come back and yeah. So yeah here we are applying for EM
  2. Do you have Teamspeak 3 installed? Yes Are you willing to test your stress? Yes What is your age? (Minimum of 14 years of age.) 23 List your current playtime: 1100 Are you willing to learn new ways to approach situations? Yes Do you have any active warns? Negatory Do you have any problems with any of our current staff members? Yes Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:51617088 Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198063499904/ Current in-game alias/rank: Staff Sergeant Cuyan Previous Notable Names/Ranks/Positions General Sloth, Marshal Commander Bly, Colonel Sloth, Advisor 31/3132 Jieves, High Chief Advisor Lion, Captain Needa How known are you on a scale of 1-10? 8 How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?: In the past, I prided myself in the amount of thought and effort I would put into making most of the events I made. Whether that just be for it to run smoothly and not feel rushed or dragged out or to the immersive aspect of it. Getting into the finer details of what was going on around us during our event, or where we were in the galaxy exactly just as some minor examples. To put it simply that's what I can bring back to the EM team and the server Have you participated in many of our Events?: As of recent, a decent handful yeah. Overall yeah hundreds upon hundreds of events Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools? (Provide examples): Gonna be honest here, I know about them and deadset in my 12 months of being EM prior. Never used them other than NPC No Target Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses: 1. Prop Resizer - This was an absolute godsend of a tool that got added a little while back. Being able to up or down scale certain props which otherwise are fairly unusable adds so much more potential and possibilities and a lot more opportunities to utilize the skybox on a map as well (if the map has one) 2. Precision/Stacker Tool - These are two separate tools but I'll include them as one cause the amount of times you use both back to back whilst making events is pretty high. Precision is pretty straightforward in it allows you to as the name in implies move props and get them in precise positions. The Stacker is again straightforward in it allows you to stack props in a line an example being the Empire at War wall props. Get one in position then you can stacker tool it in one long line or however you need to save the hassle of spawning in a new one and lining up each one 3. Music Player - I don't know the exact name of it but the F4 menu music player, pretty big upgrade from the old way of using a playsound command. Reasons this is much better is players can adjust the volume to their liking, rather than being stuck with a loud song and either sticking through or having to stopsound with the old way. Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?: If I had $1 for every server crash or near server crash I've witnessed or caused by accident back in the day. I probably could take a week off work and get the same amount of money Do you understand that you are not allowed to abuse your staff rank's powers outside of events? Provide 3 examples detailing different situations that would be considered abuse: 100% its pretty straight forward to understand. Some prime examples are as follows; 1. Spawning in weapons/objects such as vehicles without a proper reasoning to do so 2. Mucking around with event tools in a non rp/mingy way. Examples being say prop resizer, hyperspace tool etc. 3. Flying around in administrate mode for no reason or for reasons that aren't acceptable Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before: I would like to think I have some experience. On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have? 9 On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands? 9 Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master: Without being rude, definitely a mixed bag. I know a handful of the EM's are still relatively new to the role and making events so can't really say I didn't expect it. However there's definitely been some events that have felt rushed and/or lazy. However that could also be cause they in fact were last minute events or something so I really can't judge without knowing Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)? I would personally disagree with it never ever going to plan but yeah I understand How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events? Wouldn't want to toot me own horn but considering I've run dozens upon dozens of events and been a CO for a good part of 8 months. I'd like to think I am pretty confident in talking and ordering around with clear and crisp communication An event doesn't go to plan and General Grievous is crushed by an elevator. Players are laughing at you. What do you do? Here we go, so thinking out of the generic "He used a vent" or "He escaped" sort of deal. Roll with it, he gets crushed and is severely damaged. Not killed/destroyed but pretty much crippled, so you capture him in this state and take him back to the ship/base. Reason being I prefer this route over the generic other than it being different. It adds an element of passive RP back on the main server after the event, whether that be interrogation or just keeping him locked up. Naturally though he will need to escape or something happen for lore reasons, which can either be done later on in that day as a mini event or can even incorporate it into your next event. Just as an idea A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react? Really depends on the situation. Are they just straight up talking shit or is it more of constructive feedback that they're saying during the event? If its just straight up shit talking you just ignore it, nothing else to it or maybe bring it up with other staff to have a chat about the behaviour something like that if it bothers you, for myself however I couldn't care less but yeah anyway. If its the case of bad mouthing being feedback related stuff. Then you obviously listen and take it on board. If they're saying it during the event just ask them to wait till after the event to discuss it and yeah, pretty simple stuff. 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? In all honestly probably not booked the event to begin with, up to you to make sure you're booking events you know you will be able to make and commit your time to, there are some exceptions of course regarding unforeseen circumstances which is natural but as long as you keep those to a minimum should be good. In terms of no back ups available a few solutions here, depending on how desperately you need to go afk and how far into the event you are, could possibly just alter it to end it short. However the better option if available is if there was any staff on able to take over for the time being. 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? Again depends on the situation, if its just streamline having a bad day not much you can really do. However the other main aspects obviously is amount of players, props and npc's. So the main thing would be cut down on unneeded props for your event, its cool to have all these immersive props however sometimes just isn't needed. Other options available are as you progress through the event to delete old props they won't be needing or seeing again. The last other main option is just watching and cutting down on the amount of npc spawns you put down To conclude your app. you are required to create and design your own event. This includes planets, maps and stage actions. Include lots of detail in your event design. You are required to involve PassiveRP elements. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X1uaPG7_FOiISAjcw_n7R99AetrpkMaXrNTZIfR6c5o/edit?usp=sharing

  6. # ... Entering alias # ... Alias accepted # ... Enter secret # ... Secret enabled # ... Access granted to clone database GENERAL INFORMATION Full Name: CT-12/3235 Known Alias’/Nicknames: "Cuyan" Previous Occupation: Pvt in Hawkbat Battalion (32BBY - 21BBY) Current Occupation: 327th NCO (21BBY - Current) Known Languages: Galactic Basic, a touch of Dug Hobbies: None worth mentioning Alignment: Galactic Republic PSYCHOLOGICAL INFORMATION Mental State: Clinically Sane Mental Disabilities: None on Record Likes (optional): Record is empty Dislikes (optional): CIS, General Skywalker, The war PHYSICAL INFORMATION/DISABILITIES Physical State: Fit Age: 12 (24 Enhanced Clone Years) Weight: 80 Kg Build: Mesomorph Disabilities: None on Record Backstory Early Life - CT-12/3235 was like any other clone. The first nine years of his life were spent training and endless simulations, being assigned to be a part of Hawkbat Battalion, a unit under the 327th Star Corps. There's not much else to note during his time on Kamino other than he quickly adapted similarities in behavior to his Commanding Officer CC-5052 "Bly". Battle of Geonosis - Finally after ten years of training the time had come to be unhooked from the simulators. Ready for their first taste of battle, the men of Hawkbat were tasked with pushing towards one of the nearby underground factories in the Stalgasin hive spires, approximately 10 clicks out from the Petranaki arena. Enroute to the factory Hawkbat's path was blocked by a column of OG-9 Homing Spider Droids. The droids made quick work of the AT-TE armor support accompanying Hawkbat and much to the horror of most of the men, Hawkbat was given the orders from CT-411 to march forwards to the column and continue the push. So with very little hesitation due to needing to follow orders Hawkbat pushed forward and to no surprise, within a matter of minutes most of the Battalion had been wiped out bar a few individuals, notably CT-12/3235 and CT-11/3596. Immediately taking cover behind one of the destroyed AT-TEs in a bomb crater, 3596 contacted command requesting immediate medevac for the remaining members of Hawkbat. Sometime passed and to their surprise CT-65/6210 arrived to help tend to some of the critically injured that had managed to survive. What felt like hours passed in that bomb crater passed until finally a medevac team arrived and were able to successfully extract the remaining survivors back to safety. Shortly after the extraction the surface battle had been concluded. Battle of Jabiim - A few months had passed since the Battle of Geonosis, a fresh batch of new clones had been implemented to make up a new Hawkbat Battalion and both CT-12/3235 and CT-11/3596 had been promoted to Corporal. Hawkbat were stationed aboard the Acclamtor-class ship "Cowling" which was monitoring the Triellus Trade route in the Outer Rim for Separatist activity. During this time the ship's Captain, Captain Mertz, received a message from General Skywalker who was at the time with the 43rd Battalion on Jabiim dealing with the CIS. Initially the battle had favored the Republic well however that was three weeks ago. Skywalker requested the aid from Hawkbat as they were losing ground and needed the help especially with the loss of General Kenobi and A-17 who were presumed dead. As Jabiim was relatively close to Hawkbat's position it wasn't long till they landed at the planet's Capital City Choal. Over the next week, it was nothing but losses for the Republic, being pushed back right to the cities wall and preparing for an evacuation from the planet. Most of the remaining members of Hawkbat had been positioned at Evac Site 'Alpha' which was located near the ship ports of the city. Republic evac was enroute and it was a matter of time before the Separatists and the Jabiimi rebels breached the cities walls and pushed towards and overran the evac sites. Sure enough the Seperatists reached evac site Alpha and it wasn't long before they started to overrun the position. As it so happens it was at this time the Republic evacuation ships arrived at the evac site, however there wasn't enough ships for both the remaining clones and the civilians they were trying to protect. It was in this moment where General Skywalker chose the clones over the civilians, CT-12/3235 in a moment tried to protest as their job is to protect and give their lives if need be for these people. However he couldn't disobey orders so boarded the evac ship with the others before taking off and leaving the civilians to their fate. It was from that fateful day that CT-12/3235 disliked not only Skywalker but started to not trust the capabilities of the Jedi as leaders. Unfortunately in the final moments of the evacuation, CT-11/3596 had perished trying to protect the remaining civilians at the evac site, leaving CT-12/3235 as one of the last remaining members of the original Hawkbat unit. Sky Battle of Quell - Many months since the massacre on Jabiim, Hawkbat had again been refilled with fresh members to fill the void in the Battalion left from Jabiim. Hawkbat and a few other companies within 327th were given a mission to the planet of Quell in the Outer Rim. Aboard the Venator-class destroyers "Liberty", whilst in the planet's upper atmosphere. General Secura's flotilla were ambushed by several Munificent-class frigates and a battle soon ensued. The Separatists made quick work of the two side venators tearing them apart with ease and soon after B2-RP droids were deployed to breach the 'Liberty'. Hawkbat was mobilized to defend the starboard side of the ship near a breach on the upper corridor levels of the ship, whilst CC-5052 "Bly" and the rest of the forces on board took care of the port side breach. It wasn't long before the corridors were being overrun with B2-RP droids and they were being pushed back, CT-12/3235 was aware of reinforcements in the likes of General Skywalker and Admiral Yularen had arrived via the comms and shuddered for a moment upon hearing Skywalker's name however there was no time to think about Jabiim and got straight back to taking on the droids within the ship. At some point the ship started getting hammered by Separatist fire, clearly they didn't care for the droids here and just wanted us dead. The ship started to break apart and it was in that moment a proper abandon ship was ordered, General Secura and CC-5052 "Bly" where with Commander Tano and General Skywalker making their way to a docked cruiser to depart. Meanwhile CT-12/3235 and the remaining members of the unit arrived at one of the side hangars where luckily a few LAAT transports were prepped and ready to evac, and not a moment too soon as soon after leaving the hangar bays the ship fully gave in. The LAATs made way for Admiral Yularen's Venator-class destroyer "Resolute" and most of them made the trip to safety. After the 'Resolute' had escaped CT-12/3235 spent the rest of his time on ship until Admiral Yularen was able to find and evac General Secura and the others a few days later from the planet of Maridun. After being regrouped with General Secura and CC-5052, CT-12/3235 was once again promoted for his efforts and achieved the NCO rank of Sergeant. Time on Malastare - After Quell and receiving his promotion, CT-12/3235 received an opportunity to take up a training position on the Republic world of Malastare at the cost of no longer being a member of Hawkbat Battalion. It didn't take much thought for him to take this opportunity. Some time away from the war would do good on his sanity. CT-12/3235 made his way to one of the Republic Training Facilities on Malastare to begin his new position in training clones who were being assigned to the 327th Star Corps. During his time on Malastare he spent some time training the clones alongside A-66 "Muzzle". It was here that CT-12/3235 after a conversation of telling A-66 his stories so far in the war, he finally got a nickname that stuck. "Cuyan" which translated to "Survivor" in Mando'a as A-66 told him. Only other thing worth mentioning during his time at the facility was CT-12/3235 now known as "Cuyan" picked up a little bit of the Dug's native language from conversations with them over the year. Current Time - After about a year of training clones on Malasatre, Cuyan was recalled to action in the war. What battles lay ahead for the Clone? Who knows but nothing can be as bad as what he already has gone through... Right?

  7. Imagine being one of the best Commanders for a good part of 6-7 months and getting snubbed like this @Fluxy.
  8. It only took my 6 of these videos to appear in one of these, thank you @Buck :). Moment of silence for @Rainn's failed attempt on the side to side climbswep
  9. Howdy, So the poll results from the previous week have come in, and after much hard debate between us Event Staff and others.
