  • How will you bring new and creative event ideas to the server?:


    I have a keen interest in star wars lore so events will be based in the universe with a bit of creative freedom. I like involving the players by having a campaign spread across a duration so as to retain interest in the players. I beleive in offering the playerbase a choice about what events they want to tackle and allow them to vote for what event they wish to do. I also plan on having events such as one life events, campaign progression depending on wether the previous mission was a success or not .
  • Have you participated in many of our Events?:


    Yes I have participated in a multitude of events across different regiments. I have been through enough events to understand the progression that is needed not just during the event but if it is turned into a campaign as well. I have witnessed server lags as well and know how it irritates players so I know to focus on that point as well. I have seen the importance of ensuring all players have something to do or else boredom sets in.
  • Are you familiar with Gmod's wide range of NPC tools? (Provide examples):


    I am not very well versed but I am open to learning. However I do know a few basic tools
    NPC No target- Most useful tool as it ensures you dont get killed by your own NPC's
    NPC Profeciency- Changes the NPC accuracy to make them either very accurate or miss a couple of shots
    NPC Health, Changes the health of the NPC's to make them easier to harder to kill
  • 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- Allows to gyperspace in NPC ships with AI so that they fly around and target the craft of others. You can enable the LFS ships to have AI so that they can fly around and target players. You can also use it to jump in and out larger capital ships to the map
    Teleporter- Allows to set up a fast travel point between 2 points so that if a player respawns they can rejoin the action immediately. It also allows you two add elements such as gaops or tunnels to rp with, meaning you can place one teleporter point near a tunnel/hole and another near the next point/objective and it will be as if the players are entering a new area
    Tool gun spawning- Can be used to spawn in NPC's at a faster rate by selecting spawn using toolgun instead of accessing the Q menu to spawn an individual one. Best used when combined with drop pods to allow it to seem as if they are spawning rapidly from inside the pod 
  • Are you aware of how much a Gmod server can take or how unstable Gmod truly is?:


    I have seen my fair share of server crashes and lag moments to know that GMOD is anything but stable
  • 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:


    Using physgun to throw players about or to kill/injure them. Utilizing the physgun to pick players up and freeze them or fly up to a height and drop them. The physgun should be used for prop movement only. However, that doesnt mean using the physgun and ramming a prop into players
    Using noclip and no target to fly about in another persons event and cause distractions or try and gain more kills by god modding yourself. Also we cannot use noclip to get into areas that in character we are not allowed to access. No using noclip to go and open doors, brig cells or press base alarms. Do not use no clip to escape punishment 
    Spawning in weapons for yourself that are not part of your loadout or using weapons that are powerful and can instantly kill players. Do not spawn weapons for other players as well unless the EM hosting the event has allowed to do so. Even in that situation let the leading EM hand out weapons unless they specifically request you to hand them out
  • Do you have any event experience? e.g. played a key character in an event before:


    I played a key character twice, other times just been a supporting member
  • On a scale of 1-10, how much lore knowledge do you have?


    8
  • On a scale of 1-10, how familiar are you with ulx commands?


    5
  • Make a comment regarding the recent events on our server and how they have inspired you to become an event master:


    It was a Jedi raid event that was held. The event had an established storyline with a lot of passive rp to compliment the more combative parts of the event. At no stage was any player bored and all players were involved. The event was almost cinematic and felt like a wonderful experience to have been involved in that. Event was hosted by pluto. One of the main reasons I wanted to become an EM was to share my interest and abilitiy in constructing storylines that will turn to campaigns that can last over a month or two, slowly introducing the playerbase to a antagonist that they have to work their way up to catch. I liked the mixture of passive and active elements in a lot of the events that happened but felt a bit disconnected cause there didnt seem to be a direction to the events sometimes. It feels like a show up and shhot session though that has its own charms as well.
  • Do you understand that most events rely mainly on improvisation and mainly nothing goes to plan (ever)?


    Yes, events have a skeleton and the EM has to flesh it out depending on how the players go about the event
  • How confident are you in providing briefings, debriefings, and in ensuring you're able to direct players throughout your events?


    I am confident to provide briefings and give set directions to players
  • 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 will ignore the laughter and tell the EC to respawn, I will set him up in a different area and tell him to fly his ship out of the area and communicate over comms that the general has escaped. Other options include saying it was a duplicate or stating that the general was injured but was able to escape. If needed, have the EC spawn elsewhere and show him in combat to reinforcee the idea he isnt dead. During mission debrief I can go over the event and confirm that he did infact survive and had left the system.  If in case the players still bring it up after that I shall leave it as it is amusing for them in a way and they can have that memory of an EC getting crushed by an elevator.
  • A user is bad mouthing your events. How do you react?

    Ignore the person while the event is ongoing. Once the event is over as for feedback. If the feedback is constructive and can be acted upon, take it into consideration and act on it. If it isnt something that can be worked on and the player is just abusive, ignore him and move on. If in case the matter escalates, ask him to provide feedback you can work on. If they still remain abusive bring it to the attention of the staff. Criticism is a necessary aspect of being an EM as it allows you to develop more and ensure your events are inclusive. I would rather receive negative feedback that is constructive than just +1 with no reasoning. However, if the person is just badmouthing without giving any valuable feedback that can be built on, it is best just to apologize that they didnt enjoy it and move on to tthose who would provide some reasoning.
  • 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?

    Ensured that I had no other commitments at the time beforehand. If it was an unforseen circumstance, I should still have had a backup EM who knew the ins and outs of the event to support me just in case such a situation arose. IRL responsibilities can hit at anytime, so having a backup plan is essential. All events should have a backup EM that can either do your event or can do their own one. Ensure that the EM team is well versed about your event so if in case you face any issues mid event, they can quickly step in and assist. Having a brief doc about said event can help so others can refer to it. Always be in TS so if needed you can talk to other EM's immediately if there is an issue.
  • 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 ragdolls and props not in use at the moment, Reduce the amount of NPC's being spawned. If I have prespawned NPC's ahead, remove them till the players move up.
    Prior to the event ensure that a lot of props are not going to be used to avoid lag in the first place. Before the event, the EM can test the lag the props will create by testing it in the event server or in singleplayer to assess the extent of lag it will generate. Having prepped beforehand will allow for lag to be kept to a minimum. If in case the server is lagging inspite of the previous steps, minimise the operaion area so that the server doesnt get overloaded.
  • 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.

Hey Amby, I have had no bad past opinions on you or any bad interactions, you seem keen for the role but this app still needs a lot of work, this seems very rushed and too short with some lines being only a sentence or shorter, Also you might want to get around more in TS talking to people and EMs and become friends with as you are going to be on the team, consider looking into some other apps of current EMs and give them a sus out.

The actual event Idea Itself is Detailed giving me a good idea of what event you would do, the RP its self is ok, but this app is too short and I'm going to have to give this a -1
(If you would like more feedback contact me on discord and ill be happy hopping in a call with you for hours talking about this app)

I think @Ratinson has pointed out the goods and bads of this application, I will add on my slice of feedback towards you. I have known you since you first wanted to go for the role of Event Master frequently asking me questions and how to be a good event master. The event idea is quite good and not that bland. I have seen other applications with short answers like yours but I would always say that you should add roughly 2-3 more lines to give it that extra kick. We want to see who wants to show that they can be an EM although the application doesn't always show how you can be, this is still not that bad of an application when you first expressed in interest in being an Event Master you started hopping into teamspeak more and speaking more, I have known you since you were a Flight Cadet and I feel if you just add some more detail and get yourself known better I can easily raise this to a +1 for now I will go with a neutral, as Rat has said if you want anymore private feedback reach out to my discord or poke me on teamspeak. For now I will go with a neutral.

To add onto this, without changing to a +1 without leaving more feedback on your application. Your dedication to fixing this was great. You messaged me about the application and "What could you change to make your application appealing" And I gave you recommendations and you fixed it which was absolutely amazing to your fixed application. The event idea is great but one thing I must add on is your number of hours on the server, of course with the period of time your application will most likely be up for your application hours will change. I've added more feedback onto this concerning your hours and will be sticking with a +1 after noticing more feedback.

Gday mate. Correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't had many interactions with you in game or in teamspeak so my first piece of advice is to get around teamspeak a bit more. Pop in and out of peoples channels and just get to know staff and let staff get to know you. Looking at your app (at least this current version) your answers are pretty fleshed out and more then enough detail. My only tiny nit pick is:

I'd imagine this as more of a specific thing in the Q menu like dispenser or stacker (very nit picky I know)

Otherwise your application is great! I think you could just get your presence around the server known a bit more and maybe just bump up those play hours a little bit more 😉

For now I'm happy at a neutral, id just like to see you get a bit more around the community and then I'd be happy to give you a +1

Good luck with your application!

Thank you for your reply and feedback. I have started hopping onto teamspeak and trying to get to know the EM staff a bit. Will follow your advice and try to expand my presence on teamspeak a bit more.

I've seen your events on other servers and in general you were one of the better EMs there. You will probably need help getting accustomed to such a large playercount but i think with a bit of practice it wont be hard.

Thank you for the feedback. I know that the playercount is larger and i hope to share some of my storyline events with the playerbase on this server. The current EM team has been very helpful in answering my questions so hopefully i can adjust to the larger playerbase much faster with their help
