  StrongishPear's GM Application
Posted by: StrongishPear - Yesterday, 01:53 PM - Forum: Staff Applications - Replies (1)

(1.) What is your SteamID and in game Name? - STEAM_0:0:120392713 PO3|Pear

(2.) What Timezone do you live in? - EST

(2a) Please put what times you are most active in CST (Chicago US), so the managers know when they can expect to see you. - 5 PM CST - 3 AM CST

(3.) How old are you? - 25

(4.) When did you first join our server and how did you discover it? - I discovered the server back when it first started, and I was told about it by staff members on the Hogwarts server

(4a) How can we be sure you will stay active and loyal (with your time) to Star by Star? - I like the server and the people on it, I like hanging out with them and I like the events that the current GMs put on.  I'm also not the kind of person to apply for something then disappear, when I commit to something I make sure to follow through.

(4b) Do you understand you can be let go at ANY time for inactivity? - Yes, of course, you can't have staff taking up the slots and not being around.

(5.) Do you understand and agree to not only comply with, but also enforce the rules of the Server when necessary? - Yes, GMs may not be Mods or Admins, but they're still staff.

(5a) When listing the rules please explain what they mean to show that you understand them.
List Rules below:
1: No fail RP - Don't RP badly on purpose, make an attempt with your roleplaying.
2: Be respectful towards other players and staff - Don't be a jerk, no racism, no sexism, no -ism of any kind, respect the fact that you're dealing with other people.
3: No RDMing - Just because you have a gun doesn't mean you can go around shooting other players, there's PvP jobs for that.
4: Obey staff and RP leaders - When a staff member or someone with a higher rank asks/tells you to do something, you should do it, so long as it doesn't violate any of the other rules.
5: No meta-gaming - Don't use OOC knowledge ingame, if a GM has an advert out informing specific people of something, don't use that knowledge unless you're one of those people.
6: Do not mic/chat spam - Don't blast music or anything else over your microphone, don't spam text in the chat.
7: Do not avoid the AFK system - Don't log into the game and go afk purely to rack up loyalty hours with fidgeting every few minutes to not get kicked

(5b) Explain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server - A minge is a player that comes onto the server purely to be bad and disrupt the server through mic spam, killing people, and generally being a nuisance.

(6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) - I love the SBS servers and the community that they have, and I want to give back to that community by creating fun and interesting roleplay scenarios for the players and other staff members to enjoy.

(7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? - I need to work on staying in character, I break character a bit too often to chat to people but with enough practice I think that I think I can fix that.

(8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? - I'm a fun and creative person, I know a lot of the officers and other staff members, and I think that I could come up with fun and interesting events that would be different from what others can come up with.

(9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) - I am not active/staff on any servers besides the SBS Halo server.

(10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. - No, not as far as I know.

(11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? - I think the players are more important, because it doesn't matter how good your staff team or events are, without players to play on the server or in events, the quality of your staff team is moot.

(12.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, Communication, etc) - 7-8

(13.) How familiar on a scale of 1 to 10 are you with Garrys Mod Sandbox tools? - 6, I'm a bit rusty but I can get back into the swing of it quick enough.

(14.) Give us a couple of detailed examples of an event you would use and how you would proceed with them - 
1. Event starts out as a normal briefing with it being led by an actor, part way through the briefing they'll receive a message from a UNSC ship in orbit, stating that they've been engaged by a hostile Covenant ship, part way through the transmission the ship will be desroyed, at this point the actor will give orders to defend the base with the covenant sending a few waves to attack with the actor eventually prompting a counterattack, with the covenant having an outpost set up somewhere on the map, they will then proceed to board the ship, leading to a map change, once aboard they will discover that a dampening field is causing their weapons to not function, forcing the players to use their knives until they can secure proper weapons later in the mission, upon encountering their first group of enemies they will discover that the dampening field extends to the covenant forces as well (the dampening field for the UNSC weapons will be described as causing the copper in their bullets to expand, jamming the guns and causing their weapons to be useless, the covenant's weapons will simply have the energy that makes their weapons function being jammed, as they progress through the map, they'll fight more groups of various covenant that are either armed with knives (or potentially nothing, in lieu of knives) eventually discovering a forerunner device that's emitting the field, the players will be allowed to disable it with partial success, which will re-enable the covenant's weapons, there will also be an armoury on the map, allowing the players to collect a basic assortment of covenant weapons (carbines, needlers, etc) for use, SoS players will be subject to their weapons being disabled, but they won't need to secure new weapons from the armoury as their weapons will come back online when the dampening field is turned off, at that point their objective will change to be to destroy the ship, and secure information on where the covenant got the artifact from (ONI players will have a side objective to secure the artifact itself without anyone else knowing) and escape.  As they fight towards the bridge/power plant, they will encounter more waves of enemies, eventually culminating in a boss battle with the shipmaster and his honour guard on the bridge and a hunter pair in the power plant.  After rigging the ship to explode and evacuating with the data (and potentially the artifact) the players will return to the outside map where the ship will explode.  The players will then go to debrief where the players will be informed the data downloaded is currently being decrypted by ONI agents, but preliminary analysis seems to indicate that along with analytical data about the artifact, there are coordinates that will lead to the planet that the artifact originated from, which will be used as a hook that would lead into a future event.  ONI players will get an extra debriefing telling them what is happening to the artifact (with the amount of details varying based on their clearance level).

Mechanically the event is relatively simple, there isn’t a great deal of fancy under the hood stuff, the beginning part will just be me spawning a number of hostile enemies near the east gate of the base, with the players defending against them, after the players reach the grav lift to the enemy ship, they will encounter the covenant forces guarding it, with a number of skirmishers in sniper towers, 1-2 pairs of hunters, elites of various kinds, jackals, and grunts, most having been prespawned with further hostiles being spawned near the grav lift to represent enemy reinforcements coming down from the ship.  After the enemies are cleared the players will board the enemy ship, leading to a map change, after the players are all loaded in and assembled, I will have a second GM set up the NPCs while I do the intro to the second map, where during their weapons check they discover that their ammo has become useless, to prevent the players from using their weapons, I will strip them and then give them a knife (except the SoS players, who will be under strict instructions not to use their guns, with doing so being an ejection from the event), after the other GM gives me the go ahead (assuming I finish first) they will be given their orders and allowed to progress into the ship.  After discovering the artifact there will be some roleplaying back and forth with the players attempting to disable it.  After they succeed the SoS players will be told that their weapons suddenly light up, as if the drain on the energy has vanished, signalling that they are allowed to use their guns, the UNSC players will be given an advert prompt to guide them to the conclusion that they should try to find more covenant weapons, since they seem to function, which would lead them to the armoury, they will also receive a new objective to secure data on the artefact (and ONI will get their secret objective to secure the artefact itself).  Doing things in this fashion I think is good for the dynamic between the SoS and UNSC, since I’ve found the SoS are rarely given a leading role in events.  Things can be modified of course if there aren’t enough SoS players online to make this possible.  When the players find the armoury and defeat the guards, they will each be given a choice of one covenant weapon to use from a select list, with me giving each player their weapon of choice along with some ammo.  The players will then be prompted with their new objective: Destroy the ship.  The players will need to head to two locations to do so, the first location being the bridge, where they will have to defeat the Shipmaster and his honour guard to secure the ability to disable the fail safes on the powerplant, the second being the powerplant itself, which is being guarded by a hunter pair and some other enemies.  If they reach the power plant first, they will discover that they can’t overload the powerplant while the fail safes are active, and that control over them is routed to the bridge via roleplayed communication.  After setting the ship to overload, they will need to head back to the starting point and escape, at which point I will load back into the original map, quickly setting things up while everyone swaps back to the original jobs, after everyone is good to go I’ll assemble them at the base of the grav lift and have them evacuate the area as I use dynamite bound to various numpad keys to show explosions progressing throughout the ship model, with the ship eventually completely exploding.  The players will then head back to base and debrief over what happened, and the data that was retrieved.  With ONI players potentially having a second debriefing of what is going to happen to the artifact if they managed to retrieve it.  I will also use the debriefing as a hook that would eventually lead into a second event that would expand further on what these artifacts are and why they cause these strange effects.

TL;DR Mission starts out with a fake briefing, base comes under attack during said briefing, players counterattack onto enemy ship with a twist, would lead into further missions with each one having a different twist to it.

2. Insurrectionists capture the Admiral, when players go to get him back it turns out it was a diversion and they've actually siezed control of the base.

(15.) Do you have any experience using ULX or building on Garry's Mod? - I have experience with building, but not with ULX, I am, however, a quick study with learning commands.

(16.) You understand and realize, that by applying for staff on the server also means, that you are sacrificing the complete freedom of being able to RP freely all the time without any interruptions, and are obligated to handle all server issues at hand no matter the situation? - Yes, of course.

(17.) Please make a list of all previous staff applications, a link to them, and the reason they were locked. If they were accepted, please give a short explanation of why you are no longer staff. (Disregard if this is your first application) - N/A

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? -

(2) What is your suggestion? - 

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - 

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - 

My Ingame name is Xarius Drakefire my steam ID is STEAM_0:0:0 
My steam ID3 is [U:1:0]
My steam ID64 is https:/steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198109738210
My steam Username is FinnerXray and Seandavitt1
My Suggestion is too add my Custom Job idea the Dark Warlock to the server as a Custom Whitelist Job, This Custom Job idea is based on two existing Custom Whitelist Jobs. Being the Warlock and the Dark Animagus Rogue. Basically the Dark Warlock is a Dark Forces member, who has all the spells of both the Warlock and the Dark Animagus Rogue Custom Jobs along with they're Animagus Abilities. Also it has snatcher cuffs. It also uses the wand skin of the Dark Animagus Rogue. Along with having the same rule set as the Dark Animagus Rogue. Being that if its revealed either through the Dark Warlock showing its cuffs or using any of the Dark Force Only Spells. It also uses the Corvo playermodel at https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=159269477 . So Can please do this Im willing to pay between $20 and $30 USD for this Custom Job. MY pay pal account is finnerxray@gmail.com or Finnegan Davitt. also my steam ID is 

 my steam ID3 is
my steam ID64 is 
 and my Steam name is FinnerXray. 
This Suggestion would make a great edition since it would add a equivilant to the warlock for the Darkforces
plus it looks really cool.
Personally I see no negatives for this suggestion besides the work the staff would have to do to create it. It might be slightly more powerful than a regular whitelist job I'm not sure. But I'm really hoping you guys can make this work don't forget to leave feedback.  voldehappy

  Adolf Masters
Posted by: tullycarnet - Yesterday, 12:32 PM - Forum: Ban Appeals - Replies (16)

(1) In-game name: Adolf Masters

(2) Your Steam ID: STEAM_6561198818900541/

(3) Name of Admin/Staff who banned you: Shine

(4) Was it a Temp or Permanent Ban: (Please state how long if Temp) 2 day ban

(5) Have you been banned on any SBS server before? If so, approximately how many times? I think I have been banned twice 

(6) Have you been banned within the last week? No

(7) Why were you banned in this instance? (Explain in Detail) Honestly I have no idea, I was in Wizadry teaching a class when I had two of my students have a fun harmless non attack duel to show certain spells (which wizadry is for) and because some new server players wanted to see a clash. At this point Shine who seemed in a bad mode instantly gagged me then passively aggressively told me not to do that in class. At this point I told the class we can no longer do that since the mod is not allowing it. Some people in the class then jokingly called him a fun sponge etc and seemed abit annoyed at this mods seemingly power trippy way of being and ruining what some could perceive as fun or most in this case. At this point I made an @ call asking for another mods second opinion on if having a controlled collision of spells in class is allowed if they are non attack spells. Shine at this point seemed to take this offensively having his mod role taken into questioning instantly brought me to a sit. He then in an annoyed voice told me that I would be receiving a ban. I asked why and he said for admin disrespect and something about telling some to jump up and down. When I asked him what he is talking about he laughed and said "Actually lets make it 2 days" I had no idea what he was talking about and still don't so I asked him can I see evidence of what he was talking about when he ignored me. Then I asked could he wait a second so I could get his steam ID for a staff report when he instantly banned me. He refused to provide evidence of something which is massively unfair and he was either looking for any reason to ban me, or he made something up as a reason  to ban me or got a friend on the server to, and without any evidence used that as a reason to ban me. 

(8 ) Do you think you deserved the ban? Not at all, I honestly see no reason why I should have got banned, it seem that I am being punished due the nature of some mod not liking people questioning his decisions when they are not correct, if if it is just questioning it.

(9) Why should you be unbanned? I should be unbanned because I did nothing wrong and because zero evidence has been put forth to why in the first place? I thought there would be a system in place to stop this so a potential admin can not abuse his role to ban people from the server. Which I think is what happened in this case.

(10) Have you learned your lesson from this ban? I don't think I deserved this ban so I don't know what I could have learned. 

(11) Provide a Screenshot of the message that appears when you try to join the server:

  I'm Sorry (A New Me?).
Posted by: Mina Blair Run. - Yesterday, 11:39 AM - Forum: Introductions & Farewells - Replies (6)

I'm Sorry.

So hi, I am Mina. I have been here quite a while but never done one of these. I know a lot of you will know me and a lot of you won't know me and everyone has their own opinion, some good, most bad. The way I played before was strict, I get that. I would arrest people I knew and did not know equally and by doing this I pushed a lot of people away. Not going to name names but I know there are people here that do not like me when before we got along due to how I played. If I played a role I put 100% into it, if I was a teacher I would try give the best classes I can by making it full of RP which sometimes lead to not giving out homework due to class attitute, this was another thing I did that segregated me from everyone. If I prefected I would arrest anyone and everyone if they didn't go to class and so on, 3rd year or Master Prestige. I think a lot of you saw this as me being power hungry and a "Wannabe Mod". Don't get me wrong I wanted to be a mod for a long time but I was going about it the wrong way, I saw it as I had to show that I was always working harder than everyone else, thinking that people would see how hard I was trying but I guess it had the complete oppostite effect.

It seems no matter what I do I only end up making the bridge between myself and other players bigger and harder to cross. I am not a social person, I like to be doing stuff which is often why you'll see me running around teaching or prefecting. I am really awkward as well which is why you don't often see me in groups. Before I used to be fine with not caring what people thought of me but I have got tired of this. Do you guys know what it is like trying to talk to people to have them walk away? To be openly ignored by eveyone? To walk up to a group and have everyone stop talking and wait for you to leave? To do anything and have what feels like everyone gang up on you even when the intentions were good? To be judged by things that happened a long time ago or by two interactions? To be given attitude all the time and to be told that you are one of the most hated players in the community? I don't imagine a lot of you do but you would hate this, just like I do. This server means a lot to me and I have had some good times, bad times and met some amazing people. I have thought about leaving many times but it seems no matter how long I take off when I come back it's the same.

If I had an opinion I would voice it which really did not help my cause, I did not and still don't care if my opinion is different to others, if I saw someone do something I would report it, even if 10 other people said he did not, I was and still am quite a stubborn person and the fact I would not back down got me into a lot of trouble, I remember arguements with staff over a tiny thing in a rule because the rule said I could and I gave them a hard time which I regret.

I know this is long winded but bassically all I am asking for is a chance. I know what I did and I can see what I did has given me a bad name which I want to fix. I just want everyone to give me a chance to change and show I am not just a "Power hungry wannabe mod". I know it's a big ask but please. Rather than seeing me as Mina Blair Run, the kid who has done this, this and that see me as Mina Blair Run, the new kid. The amount of times I have thought about making an ALT account just so I could come back and try again is uncountable, the amount of times I just wished everyone would forget about whatever happened before but it wouldn't happen. I know I make it hard for myself and I am not trying to feel sorry for myself. I just want to try and better myself, I want to be able to have fun on the server like when I first joined. I know I have done a lot to annoy people and I get on the wrong side of people but like I said, I just want a chance. I know me saying sorry here doesn't stand for anything and over the next few weeks, months or however long it takes you will hopefully see me making the effort to be better. I can't promise everything will be great and we will all be the best of friends but I can promise that if you give me a chance I'll show you that I can be better than before.

If you guys could look past everything that has happened and just see me as someone you've never met before I would be extremely greatful. All I could ever ask for is a chance. I am sorry for everything, the friendships I have ruined and the people I have turned against me. I am sorry for all of it.

Thank you everyone for reading this. I might be making updates this every so often and I will do my best to reply to comments. I have got to go to work so won't be able to reply right away. Please do comment with anything whether it be good or bad. If you know there is something I can work on please don't hesitate to let me know. Thank you all again, even if you don't give me a chance just thank for for reading this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Edit 1-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I put it in Introductions and Farewells as I want this to be a goodbye to the old me and introducing the new me.

  DF Saving from LF
Posted by: Gordon - Yesterday, 10:51 AM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (9)

**DISCLAIMER: https://starbystargaming.com/showthread.php?tid=4724

(1) What is your In-game name & Steam ID? - STEAM_0:1:194769177

(1a) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - yes

(2) What is your suggestion? - Allow DF to save other DF from towers.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - LF can steal from GY but DF cannot from towers, i was pulled into a sit after a rescue attempt on a DF during LD for staff to tell me that im not allowed to. Which in my opinion is so dumb and should be balanced each side if LF can make rescues why cant DF? i get that the towers are a 'safe' spot for LF but so is the GY for the dark forces it really needs to be balanced.

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - People getting upset with successful rescue attempts

(2) What is their name? - Nick Wolfenshlegaluwuhauseneny

(3) What is their Steam ID? - 

(4) What did they do wrong? - Use of staff bind, whenever Guy updates custom whitelist or people with VIP he puts out a message like this, I know it says Nick's name and it's OOC but you can see he is clearly copying what guy does there for impersonating a staff member. If I saw that as a newer player waitng for VIP or waiting for a whitelist I would get my hopes up for a bit to find it was fake. You also hear him at the end say "Probably not" when I said that's not allowed so it shows he knows he is pushing it.

  Several Reports Part 1.
Posted by: Mina Blair Run. - Yesterday, 09:27 AM - Forum: Staff & Player Reports - Replies (11)

Several reports here, some are more minor than others. 

Don't -1 this under the pretext "Gina dealt with this" or "Gina asked us to stop". If this is the case then why does it happen on two occasions. The same people were involved in both reports so why did they procede to do it all again even after reportedly being told to stop. This just shows that they ignored what they have been asked or told to do by the staff. Also since there is 3 reports here and people say Gina dealt with 1 does not warrent it to be locked or -1.

Report 1

(1) What is your in game name and Steam ID? - Mina Blair Run. STEAM_0:0:77944715

(2) What is their name? - Nick Wolfenshlegaluwuhauseneny, Tom Wolfenshlegaluwuhauseneny, Gordon Ragnulf, Miro Mai Mcguffins

(3) What is their Steam ID? - 

Nick STEAM_0:0:88428788

Tom STEAM_0:1:76850780
Gordon STEAM_0:1:194769177
Miro STEAM_0:0:142871545

(4) What did they do wrong? - Mass Freespelling of Confringo in CY, Rule 5. In this report and the second report watch the video and look at the top left corner. I have a 1070ti overclocked to over 2000MHz and you will see it pushing the card to 99%/100% taking me from at times over 120 FPS down to mid 40's at points. This is playable for me but think of the people who don't have powerful systems, think how it will effect them and ruin their experience. Also you can see it's not an event or anything so it doesn't excuse the massive breaking of rule 5.

(5) Evidence. (Must be provided) -

Report 2
(1) What is your in game name and Steam ID? - Mina Blair Run. STEAM_0:0:77944715

(2) What is their name? - Nick Wolfenshlegaluwuhauseneny, Tom Wolfenshlegaluwuhauseneny, Gordon Ragnulf, Miro Mai Mcguffins, Ricky Mai Mcguffins another others that I could not make out.
