How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?:
From playing many events during my time on the server events can become boring for certain regiments. What I aim to do with my events is try and give certain regiments specific roles without leaving any regiment doing nothing and getting bored. This is a very ambitious goal but due to the new event server coming in to play I can orientate my events around certain regiments using their skills to the best I can also the regiments can be more suited for events I plan. But before the event server I would try and bring my creativity by doing mini campaign events with recurring characters and put my own twist on each event
Have you participated in many of our Events?:
Yes, I've participated in many events as a trooper and as an EC
Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools?:
Currently I am familiar with some of the tools but am willing to learn and ask for advice about the tools from my peers
Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses:
1: Advanced Duplicator – The advanced duplicator is an EMs best friend, this gives ems ease to paste down dupes that enhance events and make setup quicker, it also comes in handy as you can go into singleplayer and create a dupe there and then paste it in on the server.
2: Hyperspace Tool – The hyperspace tool functions to make the immersion of munificents or other types of ships real and seem like they did jump in from out of nowhere instead of the muni getting just spawned in
3: Vanillas Turbolaser tool – The turbolaser tool can be used as friendly turbolasers or munificent turbolasers. This makes the players wary of an area to be in when the muni starts firing or used as a plothole to stop troopers going somewhere they shouldn’t
Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?:
Yes having witnessed many events where the server has crashed or started to crash from the amount of props and AI on the server I’ve started to understand how much a gmod server can take and will be very mindful of what and how much i spawn in. This is all precautions but in the end Gmod and the server will do what it pleases and sometimes as much as you try to be cautious it won't always work out.
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:
1. Giving out weapons/gear to players that they shouldn’t have
2. Teleporting to players for no valid reason
3. using no-clip/administrate as a form of travel.
Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before:
I have a lot of event experience but from my knowledge I don’t believe I’ve ever played a key character in the past (or that I knew was a key character at the time) However during my time as an EC I’ve tried to keep using the same name when appropriate as to give players a sense of Déjà vu. In Andy’s Return of the beast campaign I played as a character called the Strange Figure. If you don’t know he was the one in control of the whole situation and controlled commands given to the beast. I was given free reign on what I said and tried to make an impact. I don’t know how much impact I made but I believe I made the character unique by giving him a ‘this beast is just another minion' vibe and discarded the beast like it was nothing
On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have?:
6-7 I have knowledge on most of the main stream star wars series and a little bit of legends and SWTOR knowledge.
On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands?:
5, Currently I only know the basic commands like !bring !goto !kick !ban !hp !return. this is the extent of my knowledge as I've never used ULX before. But from what I've heard a quick google search can give me all the commands I'll need to use and if not i can always ask my peers.
Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master:
There hasn't been a recent event that has inspired me to make the app but there have been many events of my time playing that have made me appreciate EMs and make the decision to become one. One of the main events would have to be Andy's Campaigns. My first campaign was an Andy campaign and it was just perfect it really got me into wanting to play more SWRP and got me more involved with the server. Another event would have been an Event held by Tango. The event was where two banking clan members were coming to inspect the base to see if their money was being spent properly. I was one of the ECs for that event but the way it was handled was epic, the fact the troopers had to guide us away from the trouble as well as showing us the base was challenging for them and was a very enjoyable event. Personally i want to be able to give people the same amount of joy these events have given me, it just makes me want to try and give it my best.
Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)?:
Yes having witnessed many EM's getting derailed because of what a trooper has done or found when they were not meant to, I understand that troopers also dont always listen to what you say or mishear stuff and this also puts the event off course, however I would remind them with voice amp to go somewhere or do something if I notice a large amount not doing what they are meant to be doing. There is also the fact that events can get derailed by the server having a fit and crashing, this can then lead to the event starting 20 minutes later than you wanted it too and chews into your time for the event.
How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events?:
From my experience as an officer in 7th and talking to many people I believe I would be able to competently provide briefings and debriefings. I would also be fine with having to direct players with voice amp during missions.
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 play it off as that he cut through the elevator walls and escaped into the ventilation shaft, there is no better solution for this to play out. I would then proceed to bring him back depending on how important he is or how much of an obstacle he is meant to be would be what happens to him after. If he was not important to the objective i would say he cut into a ventilation shaft but got his legs crushed and has gone to his fighter, if he was important i wouldnt damage him i would just bring him back to the area and let him wreak havoc on the troopers.
2. A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react?
Depending on the language they choose to take with bad mouthing I would tell them they should not bad mouth an event in the chat and if you have some advice on how to fix it he can talk to me about it. I would then tell him if he has some feedback he can come to me and talk about what he thinks I could do better and tell me how I could improve on my events instead of putting it in /ooc. However players do as they will so if its not concerning what they are putting I’d leave them be as it can sometimes be beneficial.
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?
If I knew i had to go AFK in the middle of my event I would ask someone before the event to run the event instead of me as I have to go afk and cannot run the event. But because I knew beforehand, I should have never offered to run the event and let someone else do it
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?
At first, I would go around the map deleting all the unnecessary props that have no use anymore for instance, an old slice location that had been completed and has no relevance anymore. If the server is still lagging hard i would minimize the amount of AI I spawn in and be mindful of that.
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. The event plan https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fTL8xgYgfk1Cmvu9dObVR1CT90Xiw9PMPbWx3ssofc8/edit?usp=sharing
