  New Dedicated Machine Upgrade | Better Performance | More Servers
Posted by: The Guy - 06-23-2019, 08:35 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (14)

Salut!

Today we have made the transition to a new machine with a far better CPU, as well as some other hardware upgrades. The new CPU is 8 cores, therefore we can now host up to eight Garry's Mod servers rather than four. The performance boost should be upwards of 30%, which is quite drastic. This should be widely noticeable on all servers over the coming weeks as they are put through the regular daily stress they endure. All IP's, files, and data have been transferred seamlessly, so this change will require nothing of the players. There should be very minimal if any data loss from the last hour or so of player progress on any of our servers. As always, we will continue to upgrade our servers performance to the best of our availability, and of course accordingly to what hardware and technology is available to us. We hope you enjoy the upgrade in server performance.

  Hogwarts Feedback
Posted by: Albert William - 06-23-2019, 06:29 PM - Forum: Feedback - Replies (4)

So some of u may think that im posting this cuz i didnt get accepted, well idc about being a staff anymore so No im not posting this because of what happened with me.
So ill copy what @Satia Aeternalis told me last week


"Hey Albert, unfortunately you weren't discussed this week. One reason is that the team felt it was too soon since your app was posted this weekend."
But today a mod got accepted and he applied just yesterday.
Is this fair?.
I dont have any problem with the one who got accepted, i like him actually and i think that he really deserved a chance but what about the thing that satia told me?tbh i feel like im getting tricked or something.This is not fair , if its too early for me then its too early for anyone else.i would like to hear why is that happening.

  Allow Dobby & House elf's in active classes.
Posted by: Jamie - 06-23-2019, 05:42 PM - Forum: Server Suggestions - Replies (7)

(1) In-game name & Steam ID: Jamie Fuzz & STEAM_0:0:70386416

(2)Your suggestion: Allow House elf's to be able to sit in during active classes. This could potentially go off of the teacher's discretion during the lesson and if they are okay with them staying they should be able to.

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition: Well them not being allowed made the class look less appealing. I enjoy sitting in classes, as it's where most people are during class time. Not being allowed in means people playing these characters are very limited to who they can talk to during classes. It's a small change that I don't see negatively affecting anyone and it would make Dobby and House-elf role more enjoyable in my opinion.  

Also, for example, Dobby could have a prefect as a master and you wouldn't be able to follow them into a lesson because of this rule.

(4) List what you think (if any) could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added: I'd say it could potentially cause a distraction in the lesson and bring peoples' attention off of the actual lesson or teacher. However, I feel like it should be clear that the person playing as a house-elf shouldn't have the intentions of going in and ruining/disturbing classes. If this was the case they should be dealt with appropriately by however the teacher, or even staff feel necessary. This could also be avoided by the teacher being allowed to grant/deny permission for Dobby/House elf's to stay in the classroom and if the teacher requests them to leave they must respect that, so it's more of a case by case situation. As I personally was in a class not disturbing anyone to my knowledge just chilling, if anything was trying to add to the roleplay and was asked to leave by staff due to the rule being in place, which is fair and that's why I'm making this suggestion after being advised to do so. If the teacher is happy with them being present then there shouldn't really be a problem in my opinion. Thanks for reading.

 (5b) Expain what the term "minge" means, when referring to a player on the server -
[b]  Minge is someone who has no intention to roleplay in the slightest and only intention is to troll the server.[/b]
 
 (6.) Tell us about yourself and why you want to be staff on SBS? (100 words or less) -
I want to be a gamemaker on Hogwarts rp because there has been a lack of gamemakers and events recently and with my activity and dedication I think I could turn that around. I'm 16 years old who has recently left high school, currently waiting for my results and personally i'm pretty nervous. I don't really know what I want to due in the future so i'm still trying to figure that out as an individual. I have 2 puppers who always sleep because ther're lazy af. I spend most of my free time playing games with friends and overall having a good time, going out isn't really my cup of tea. Let's just say my IRL friends are questionable. :p
 
 (7.) What do you feel you need to improve on the most? -
Get more used to the tools SBS use.
 
 (8.) How would having you on staff benefit our server and what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants? -
I have a ton of time on my times to invest into the server and ensure people have something to do, especially those master prestiges that just run or B-Hop around for hours on end.
 
 (9.) Have you been staff/are currently on any other servers? If so, which ones? (List them if possible) -
[b]I was an Admin on Undercover Rp's military server." , Ex-Mod on storm. link dark rp server and i used to co-own a server with my friend a while back.[/b]
 
 (10.) Have you ever been banned on any Garrys Mod/SBS servers? If yes, then please list when, how long, and the reason. -
Yes, 3 times I don't remember the reasons but one of the 3 bans were requested.
 
 (11.) Are the Server staff or the players more important? Why? -
[b]They are both equally as important because without the players there would be no server, but if there were no staff to maintain those players the server would go into mayhem and there will be no point in having that server up.[/b]
 
 (12.) How would you rate your skills overall out of 10 (EX: Patience, Communication, etc) -
Overall I would say around 7 to 8.
 
 (13.) How familiar on a scale of 1 to 10 are you with Garrys Mod Sandbox tools? -
around a 6, I learn very fast and dabble in sand box now and then.
 
 (14.) Give us a couple of detailed examples of an event you would use and how you would proceed with them -
Spleef
This has been done before but I think it should return!
The basic concept of this is that there would be 3 or 4 people on each team.
The players will be equipped with crossbows and they would need to shoot the wooden floors twice for them to brake.
They need to try and get the other team to fall all the way down.
Once they're at the bottem they're out.
Nagini's maze
For this event players will have to go into a dark maze to try and retreave a relic.
Nagini will be turned into a snake model if the server has them and try to eliminate the players trying to search for the relic.
The players will be armed with swords,crowbars etc.
If nagini kills all the players it wins.
If the players find the relic and find their way out then they win.

Hagrid's Magical creatures turned bad!
For this hagrid will have a class learning about unicorns.
One of the unicorns seems to be under some sort of dark spell.
The unicorn will then turn and bite the other unicorns.
Once they've been bitten they will turn and try to kill the players.
The players will then have no choice but to put them down and protect themselves.

Goblin Takeover!

They're going to be 4 goblins and they will have to sneak into the school without being detected and steal some potions.
They will then use them against the students to turn them into goblins.
I will take the troll model, shrink it down and colour it green.
Once all 4 goblins have accuired the potions a GH will be called.
The goblins will then run into the GH and attack the students with transfiguration potions to turn them into goblins.
The students freak out and attack the goblins, trying to avoid being turned into one.
The players will then have to kill the goblins before they take over!

This event could have some flaus but if I work on it and get it organised then it will work.

(15.) Do you have any experience using ULX or building on Garry's Mod? -
I do.
 
 (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.
 (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) -
https://starbystargaming.com/showthread.php?tid=3582 - 30 days old.
https://starbystargaming.com/showthread.php?tid=3031 - Requested lock.
https://starbystargaming.com/showthread.php?tid=5870 - Denied due to the following reasons. [ Communicate more outside of your battalion}
