  1. Better have auto-hop and a good airaccelarate.

    If y'all want to keep STTT how it is, this I believe is the most pragmatic way to go about this. STTT hosting a side project being Deathrun by doing so creating a sub-forum about Deathrun and all the small details that we'd normally have for STTT just all relating to Deathrun.

    However, cost is most likely the issue and the fact that people on here are for TTT and not Deathrun, mostly. Therefore, it could be even more problematic than getting EU or LP actively filled like the rest of the servers.

    Anywho, this is a great suggestion and I like Mango's admendment to it and here's hoping for some sort of response.

    Yes, yes, yes, and yes. I love Deathrun, it is almost just a great time waster as TTT is. It's a simple server to run, that doesn't need much moderating or maintenance. It's one of the game-modes that has the least memory, I've dealt with my own deathrun servers in the past.

    It's not needed, but a small 24 person server would be probably filled most of the time.

    If you win a Big Al giveaway, please try and send some of the money to donations to STTT. +1 I would love this.

    @Husky likes deathrun.. I think he would love it as well.

    EDIT: Also let's slow down a bit, highwon has added us LP and EU. And he is working on upgrading the servers and changing the IP's.

    The name won't be changed if we had SDR because we would probably be known for TTT but we could always have

    Thank you for your feedback.

    For you negative point, i never had any intentions on changing the name, STTT - Deathrun | AutoJump | FastDL | XP | Pointshop would still work fine, similar to how the TTT servers are currently titled.

    If this is set up right, i don't think getting players, current or new, onto the server will be a problem.

    This is a great idea and could possibly lead into other gamemodes being explored - minigames, jailbreak, darkRP and prophunt would all have potential as servers and could increase the playerbase for the community. Deathrun is a great first step as it's easy to manage and setup, requires very limited moderation and will encourage new players to join the community.
  8. the argument that 'people have come here for TTT not deathrun' is quite a stupid thing too, as i would assume that many of us on STTT are open to change and that they have already played and liked deathrun enough to give it a go.

    and let's be honest, LP and EU aren't populated when they should be, so we could use one of them for testing DR

    This is Serious Trouble in Terrorist Town. If you're not here for TTT, then you're here to chat with others or troll. It's not a place for deathrun.


    It's surely a legitimate argument. This place will be a place for deathrun if deathrun is implemented and successful, but until then this is strictly a place for TTT I believe.

    EDIT: La Vie and Teezy are a dumb :sneaky:. Show me where we're called SeriousDeathRun and host Deathrun

    I feel like you are suggesting DR will take away from the TTT we currently have? Correct me if im wrong.
    But i highly disagree, yes we may see people slip towards DR more, myself heavily included, TTT is boring for now, this is a fresh experience.
    And remember any profits will go back in to the community, its not like this would be a new community.

    As for your implementing successfully point, I should hope how well the community runs now, as TTT will convince you that this will work.
    And personally i will strive to work alongside Highwon, providing content for the server with my previous experience within DR, if he chooses to take this approach.

    I hope this eases any concerns you may have about this implementation.

    I believe it'll all be fine in the end.

    Just was pointing out that we're STTT and literally everyone here right now is here for TTT.

    It'll not be a moot point anymore when and if DR is implemented and successful. DR is probably the best thing to integrate into the community, imo. Just pointing out:

    Highwon's preferences, community's acceptance and support of it, extent of power both in money and managing ability, and in relation to support the activity of the DR server that's hosting mainly TTT.

    Just relating this to my former Co-leader position, though a little different than what is being talked about here.

    Sure, this is more drastic than hosting another game mode. My former clan mainly hosted TF2 fun servers. We gave a dip into serious tryhardness and it worked. However, we never advertised as a fun server host. We did advertise as a TF2 strictly clan. An idea rolled around and was implemented that we expand into other games including Gmod. It did not go well and we've had the capabilities to do it.

    Again, difference. We were going into new games, you guys a new gamemode. It's the same idea.

    I'll take back all my concerns and such for the DR idea if this is implemented and successful, but that's just what I'm seeing right now. I bet you'll do a great job with Highwon to get it running, functional, and fun if this is done.

    If we wanted to expand the community, we would implement new game modes and I think this is an awesome idea. +1

    Unfortunately, it's not as easy as starting up a new server. When I designed our current systems (bans, staff, donations, etc), I only had TTT in mind and never considered us to expand beyond this gamemode (I know, stupid me). So for us to be able to start a server on a new gamemode, I would need to modify these existing systems to support the different gamemode(s).

    I played on a deathrun server with @Disruptionz the other day and we enjoyed the gamemode and think it would make a great addition to our current line-up of servers. However we need to carefully plan and make the appropriate changes to our pre-existing systems for it to work. This is not something that would be done over the course of a few weeks but be assured that we are very much considering it and assessing what changes need to be made for this to work.

    Again, I really want to stress the fact that we aren't confirming anything, we are just thinking about it and if we do it, it might be later in the year or next year.

    It's shit like this where I appreciate the knowledge I've gained from my previous Co-leader position.

    Best of luck looking into this in the future when and if you can create a correct system to support both game modes.
