How known are you on a scale of 1-10?
How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?:
My Phone Memo is full of event/story ideas, When I'm away from my computer travelling I'll often write down ideas that come to my head while I'm watching youtube videos, talking with my mates, watching movies E.T.C, I love making ideas for stories that I'll write, events I'll (Hopefully) run and the rest, I'll write some Idea's I've jotted down now
Planetary Leader Ritana has been given a tip off that he's going to be assassinated at a speech, but he refuses to not attend to it.
Taskforce Gateway has been ordered to maintain Checkpoints into the large town, a spy in CIS has told them that they are going transport a dirty bomb into a key city in the war.
Grand Admiral Inthala and some of his colleagues have been captured by the CIS, You've been tasked to rescue them (This is my Event Plan at the bottom)
A CIS ship has been rumored to be housing a newly made Bio-Weapon, You must destroy it.
I've got way more ideas, but revealing them all would be no fun.
Have you participated in many of our Events?:
I've been on this server for about 2 months now, though I've been taken away a few times due to family reasons I've participated in my fair share of events, I've loved almost every one of them, but the last few have been especially good.
Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools? (Provide examples):
Pretty well versed, but I'm still new to npcs so I might make a few mistakes.
NPC Follower (Allows you to make an NPC/s follow you or a another user)
NPC Controller (Better Version of Follower, Makes it so you can tell a NPC/s to attack a certain target or move some where you want them too.)
NPC Health (Makes it so you can change the health of NPCs)
NPC Notarget (You can set an option that makes NPC's not target you)
NPC Proficiency (How well an NPC can aim)
NPC Relationships (Changes the way NPC's react to Players Hate= Shoot at you, Fear= Run away from you, Neutral= Doesn't give two shits about you, Like =Follows you) I believe that is how it goes.
NPC Spawn Creator (More confusing version of Toods Dispenser Tool, it has more options that Toods Dispenser Tool)
NPC View Cam (Allows you to see what the NPC would be seeing.)
Toods Dispenser Tool (Almost exactly the same as the NPC Spawn Creator with just a few minor differences.)
Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses:
I'm not gonna put any NPC tools here since I did most of them above me, so here you go. I'm gonna put in a extra
Noclip/Cloak AKA Admin Mode:
Used mainly when running action parts of the event, allows you fly around without being seen by the troops, helps not to break immersion.
Used when doing briefings and other roleplay scenarios as to make you look like a hologram, that's all it does but its pretty nice.
Shoots a explosive laser at the ground, there's a shit ton of options for this one, but thats what it does
Allows you to move props so that it looks like they are hyperspace jumping into view, Good for large scale battles when the Event is starting and ending.
Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?:
There are so many things that can easily crash a Gmod server, Reflecting a bullet of a lightsaber into another lightsaber can crash the server, too many dead bodies can easily put everyone at 5 frames as second, even props glitching out on each other can affect other frames.
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:
Here you go.
Spawning in an army of NPCs to kill players because you don't like them.
Spawning in Incredibly overpowered weapons for yourself or using the Turbolaser to kill people.
Increasing your health or godmoding your self so that no one can kill you.
Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before:
I've played EC's quite a few times in events, I played one as a civilian in need of rescue, a CIS prison guard, Magna Guard, Mandolorian infiltrator, Slave Hostage, and more, I also helped out in a event once as a moderator on a different server, but that was a long while ago.
On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have?
On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands?
Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master:
I've always wanted to be an event master and these recent few events have only reinforced that, I've absolutely loved the Defense mission we went on two days ago I believe, I really enjoyed an event from a long while ago when a Higher up came to inspect the Venator and then got assassinated, and my experiences as EC's on events have been absolutely hilarious and great, And I really want to make sure that the players are able to enjoy that experience way more.
Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)?
Quite definitely, You'd have to be an absolute master planner and extremely lucky to get 40-50 people do exactly what the event is laid out for, Improvisation is probably what makes running events so much fun, at least for me, Simple answer to the question, yes.
How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events?
Extremely so, if you've met me in game I'm probably one of the most extroverted guys on the server, I talk to complete strangers like I've known them for years, I think I'd excel at this part of being a EM.
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'd be probably pissing myself laughing when this would happen, but here is what I'd do.
De-spawn General Grievous's body as fast as possible, tell everyone that it looks like he has escaped through a ventilation shaft like the slimy coward he is, he will reappear later on in the event, confirming that he is still alive for everyone, and continue with the plan as normal otherwise, its just a funny thing that happened during the event and even though its not in a serious way, it will probably make everyone enjoy the event more.
A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react?
I'd ask him politely what went wrong, correct it to the absolute best of my ability, but other than that there isn't much you can do about it, just apologize for what went wrong and make sure he's ready to continue participating in the event. but if he continues to complain after I've done my best to solve his problem I'll mute him for myself (Client Side not For Everyone) in game and direct all my attention into improving the other players experience. There isn't much else you can do in this situation.
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?
Warned my Mum that I'm running a event soon, made sure all my jobs are done, fed the animals, cleaned my room, there's a hundred reasons this could have happened and I just need to make sure that they aren't going to happen, and that everyone that could take me away knows that I can't leave during the span of the event.
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?
Remove any props that are no longer necessary, keep on top of the dead bodies on the map, spawn in less NPC's and look for any stray spawners, and I don't think there's much else I can do, having around 50 players running in 1 area is bound to lag peoples games and there isn't much I can do about 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.
Planet: Agamar Part 1 The Briefing:
I would swap to my EC slot, change my name to Junior Director Point then apply the Holographic Effect on myself then begin debrief
"Multiple High Value personnel that have been captured by the CIS are being held in this outpost, You've been tasked to retrieve them from this prison camp, The prisoners are Grand Admiral Inthala, Brigadier Logan and Senator Gorn, Keep these people safe at all costs, Move out men. Part 2 The Push and Rescue:
For the first few minutes of the event it will be completely silent, no movement, no speaking from me, no droid attacks, they'll move through the jungle terrain up onto a rayshield protected door, 1 minute slice, they'll move forward up to a second door.
After the second door opens it'll be guns blazing, there will be waves of droids that they'll be forced to push through, a few flanks during the time it takes for them to get to the prisoners, I'll lead groups of droids around corners using NPC Follower or NPC Control, so it won't look like they just spawned in out of no where, There's a few spots on the map where theres drops and climbable walls you have to get over, I'll make sure not to place droids near those because it'll just turn into a death trap.
Eventually they'll make it to the prisoners, they'll all be in bad condition and the medics will have to take a minute to heal them up into agreeable shape to leave, during this time droids will be attacking the rest of the taskforce as they fight off the attacking forces, after the prisoners are healed and ready to go, part 3 will come into action. Part 3 the Sith Lord and the Escape:
"Our Off World scanners are showing that your completely surrounded AA turrets are planted nearby, It'll take a while for us to be able to retrieve from there, Fortify the Courtyard and hold it until we can save you"
The courtyard is a open area, there's a massive pad in the middle, on each side is a door, Engineers will setup barricades at each door (Hopefully) and that'll be that.
The Taskforce is trapped, its quiet for 2 minutes as engineers set up barricades and soldiers get in position, this time of nothing happening at all will hopefully make everyone a little nervous, let me instill the scene for you.
[The cold air chills your armor as you wait, your finger itching at the trigger, everyone is organizing themselves, you get in position, but nothing happens, its almost dead silent, there's no blaster fire, no screaming, only the incoherent ramblings of a crazed senator and your own heartbeat, just as you begin to feel like nothings going to happen at all, a ear piercing scream fills your ears as the trooper next to you is hit with a sniper shot, you flick around to see a dark figure on the roof run away, then the clanking of metal against metal reaches your ears, around the corner droids start spilling out, filling the air with the sound of blaster fire and yelling.]
After a 5-10 or so minutes of defending, I'll call in.
"The AA turrets are down, The LAAT to pick you up is coming in soon." This is when the Sith Lord comes into play, coming through the second entry point, he'll charge into battle with about 20000 health, once he has been taken down I'll spawn in the LAAT and bring it over, the event will end with everyone escaping. Part 4 Debrief: "Good Job everyone, We managed to keep all three VIP's alive, I'm extremely impressed at the efficiency that you worked at, I'll tell you guys now that you are probably the most reliable taskforce I've commanded yet, But enough praise for now I'll give you your placements." (I'll give the placements to those who performed the best in the event) "That's end of this Debrief, I'll look forward to serving with you again."
This event should be a absolute shit ton of fun, but if you see any problems with it please notify me, I'll explain my thinking now for what I've done in the event.
The map is horribly small, so I wasn't going to have them leave the actual base, they'd have to stand their ground in the courtyard so that the event lasts longer than 20 minutes.
The Sith Lord is a added touch to spice up the defense section of this event, it'll hopefully break a hole in the defenses, causing the whole thing to collapse, but the Sith Lord has to have a small health pool so that they don't all die before the LAAT get's there, once the Sith Lord dies the attack will cease, it'll be a absolute hectic mess for the troopers that will stress them all out, but once its over it'll feel like you just beat Dark Souls on the hardest difficulty on this earth.
The rest of the event was me just running over everything I did and thought "How could I make this a better experience." I made sure to lock off certain parts of the map so that no one gets lost, because the map is pretty confusing. so everything is all led in one direction that suits the event perfectly. Part 4 Debrief:
"Good Job everyone, We managed to keep all three VIP's alive, I'm extremely impressed at the efficiency that you worked at, I'll tell you guys now that you are probably the most reliable taskforce I've commanded yet, But enough praise for now I'll give you your placements." (I'll give the placements to those who performed the best in the event) "Thats end of this Debrief, I'll look forward to serving with you again."
And that will be the end of my Application, I'm looking forward to seeing what you say, and please, throw all the criticism you can at me, Learning from your mistakes is one of the most valuable skills a EM can have.
P.S: Big thanks to buck for giving me the backup for the application form, I tried to submit it when I wasn't signed in and it deleted itself.
