  1. 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.) 27 List your current playtime: 53 Are you willing to learn new ways to approach situations? Yes Do you have any active warns? NO Do you have any problems with any of our current staff members? No Steam ID: STEAM_0:0:21186343 Steam Profile Link: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Camohaven/ Current in-game alias/rank: 9742 Haven Previous Notable Names/Ranks/Positions N/A How known are you on a scale of 1-10? 4 How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?: After playing for some number of years, I’ve had the experience of playing all types of Ops. This has led me to try to make RP more intense and use more tactics in events. Between reading a lot of star wars books and a love for the universe in a whole, I want to bring engaging stories that can follow close to the lore if not skewed for a bit of creative fun. Over the past month I have seen an improvement toward mission design and RP. I believe that with some of my experiences and some of the idea I can provide towards current issues can bring a fresh ideas to the group. Have you participated in many of our Events?: I've had a strong attendance over the past 2 months and I have enjoyed myself. Events have started to become more varied and feels cleaner. While I have enjoyed myself in many of the events I still believe there are new elements that can be introduced to the Community and its EM team. Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools? (Provide examples): Yes, having experience as a EM has allowed me to learn about the various tools needed for EMs. Name 3 tools that are at an Event Masters disposal within events and leave a small comment detailing each of their uses: ADV Dupe - Capable of being one of the most important assets to an EM, Adv Dupe can quickly spawn outposts and objectives that allow events to be far more interesting rather than the default map. NPC Tools - Responsible for the main attraction for events, the NPC Toolkit is a delicate tool capable of ruining the event or allowing the event’s enjoyment to thrive. From giving enemies too much health and ruining the pacing of the game, to making them too difficult, that allows the enemy to auto headshot you from across the map. Balancing the toolkits weaponry, spawn numbers, and difficulty is an easy way to make or break the event. Vanilla’s Ship tools - Adding simple details to events can take them to a new level of enjoyment. Between Firing turbolasers as a way of area denial, to the simple feel of a heavy cruiser coming into orbit. Vanilla’s Ship tools allow EM’s an easy way to add extra details that allow the battlefield to feel more intense and immersive. Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?: Yes, having played Gmod for years I have become well acquainted with how temperamental Gmod and servers can be. 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: Yes, I understand Staff Abuse is not Tolerated. Using noclip to infiltrate a base off limits to the event and teleporting your teammates into locked areas. Reading Admin chat for hints about how to cheat the event in order to give your unit an unfair advantage. Spawning in weapons and vehicles for personal use without the permission of the EM in charge. Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before: Between playing military commanders and politicians, I have played assisting EMs in events as actors running my own events On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have? 7 On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands? 8 Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master: In my opinion Events over the last month have improved pretty well. we've seen an new intro of some nice TEMs but like my previous opinion. I believe there are some ideas and RPs that I will be able to accomplish under my time as an EM that can bring some new energy to the server. Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)? Of course. My strategy is forming a foundation of objectives and goals and allow the COs to solve the problem in their own way. Even when this approach isn’t possible or ruined by others, managing the aftermath isn’t too difficult as long as you have backup plans. How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events? Extremely confident as our EMs would teach a structured event plan that allowed information to clearly be translated among all players in mission briefs and debriefs. An event doesn't go to plan and General Grievous is crushed by an elevator. Players are laughing at you. What do you do? CG or a security detail would disarm and arrest Grievous. CIS forces would make an increased push in order to capture the general. However if Troopers are still able to hold off the offensive. I would move to a second stage to either attempt a hostage capture of a regiment, and ransom. If the situation goes bad once again I would have Grievous escorted back to base/ship for interrogation and transport to a prison world escorted by (Actor) I would prefer to find a work around that rewards the players with an extra difficulty and use it to continue the RP. A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react? Ignore the unhelpful comments and learn from the criticism. I would ask that people are comfortable messaging me or coming to talk to me about ways they think I can improve my style of making events. 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? While I'm not sure why anyone would start an event and go AFK. If for some reason I had to leave for a bit I would inform the CO’s to lock down various areas. In those areas I would set the NPC spawners to spawn in multiple waves. Id request any actors or a specific regiment to be force jobbed into a droid unit and have them create unique assault plans to assist alongside the NPC spawners, either as vehicle drivers or special units. 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? Reduce extra props. Remove Props, bodies, decals, that have already been completed. Use set pieces that are low in prop count. Spawn a normal amount of NPCs that don’t over stress the current fights going on. 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/1YODDv_kbGd68jWoQJb31Xo3Xwkcqvvi1Ud_jqBZtSIs/edit?usp=sharing

Many of the events devolve into throwing bodies at a singular objective and doesn't allow regiments to shine in their roles. These were targeted issues back when I would run events and I know that if I bring those same tactics and plannings it can bring a new dimension to the current event structure.
