  1. While nobody on the team has an issue with a cool axe and good melee weapons (because god are those hard to find), the issue is nowadays TFA does singles. Our addons list is huge and while we make active attempts to cull it all the time, newcomers always say we have too much despite us not really having a ton at all...we just like scenery. Then there's also the problem of possibly conflicting weapon bases. We have TFA legacy stuff because when he started releasing new packs they were all pretty Sci-Fi. Not saying there's def gonna be errors but it may happen down the road. idk, i always am on the prowl for sum gud weapons but I'd prefer a pack over singles. That being said this axe is nifty and I do like it.
  2. Well, if you didn't notice before, auto-embedding had been enabled since we last really actively used the forum, but over the last week it appeared to not be working. Turns out the theme was ver. 1.3; the current version is 2.1.5 As a result, embedding now works (woops!) and probably other things we didn't catch onto yet.
  3. I have a few concerns, but without planting any subconscious seeds for rp I'm weary about, I'm just going to give you an ACCEPTED and see where it takes us.
  4. Okay, gotta admit, took me a bit remember what you were referencing. Alright, I'm willing to give a second chance. But I am gonna give feedback. There's nothing left of your previous post as you removed it, but going by the staff feedback at the time, this parrots some similar issues from back then. The sentences are a bit funky, and seem to run on. If you can tighten that up from the 40-50% it is right now to an 85% or higher, that'll go a long way. The backstory is... fine, but it currently is coming across to me that you're making Faith from Mirror's Edge except in a zombie town. I don't know if that was intended or not, but for a guy who is primarily a tailor in a small town, he sure used roof running alot. And i don't know what kind of small town you exactly meant either, as I live in a small town and the buildings aren't very close together (so maybe you meant he climbed to the roof to wait out the hoardes?) People who take up a secondary skill don't tend to become masters of that thing; I took mixed martial arts for half a decade on the side of school but I probably still couldn't win a fight off merit alone. It comes across in the writing as if there was no challenge involved with the actual act of getting away using his skills (aside from the obvious shoulder issue which was caused from being shot.) It is getting there, but I personally think it needs a bit more thought, or clarification at the very least. Not gonna leave a verdict until someone else gives feedback, though.
  5. There is, you're in luck :D If you're going for a more atoning character, I'll give you a broken shotty for you to create a nice fight story for. ACCEPTED
  6. You have a plate carrier with a front and back plate, a melee survival weapon of choice (probably a seaknife or something), and you found 2 mags for a pistol of choice and bullets for them along the way, since you've been in the US for awhile. I expect you to straighten up the hazy two adolescent years spent alone through rp because it sounds somewhat unbelieveable but you have vouches and are nice so show us something fun and cool :) At work but consider this ACCEPTED.
  7. Please note this backstory may or may not be 100% accurate as of the date of this comment and our soft start (8/27/19); the admin team is still working on how we want to explain or handle the absences of players for such a long time.
  8. Get with the times boyo, we added a few more things (mostly to supplement how TNB's addons changed to be all heads).
  9. If you have the vouches, I'm fine with everything. Pistol of choice doesnt need to be the glock if you dont want it to. Uniform, cuffs, knife, soft vest, taser is a cool idea. I'm even fine to say you have the shotty, whether it's broken or not could be up to you if others think that's ok. If you like the passive rp then you can rp accumulating parts and trying to get the thing to work as a motivator of sorts or you can say you lugged it from your patrol car and make some backstory outta it. Sorry for being curt but I'm at work. Like I said if you have the vouches and rp well I'm good with everything.
  10. Also half of our core team at the time when it kinda stopped had entered into the military so they weren't available for obvious reasons. Given that and the wild variation in the rest of the staff's work hours, it is a safe assumption that you won't be seeing us all on at once very often.
  11. Basically posting for posterity since I dont know if anyone will see it or not And I'm not gonna promise you the world or anything since time is limited these days But we are tweaking things to work currently, so maybe we can do a thing or two on the weekends (at least staff directed stuff). Nobody wanted to drop things as they were since we have tons of fun with the people that join but unfortunately it worked out that way. The admin team couldnt dedicate all their freetime and people wanted a constant feed of events. But maybe with a little finesse we can have something going rather than nothing at all :)
  12. I had been reading this occasionally throughout my packed day to try and lay down the law for how I felt on this issue, and I suppose I'll leave it here for the future, before I close and move this thread. Firstly, if the person who made the request ever sees this, I appreciate the effort you clearly put into the idea for the character and despite the language barrier, you definitely managed to convey your idea. However, I do stand by my fellow admins' opinions. Gonna keep it short since he probs won't even read it, but whatev: Before apping for something like this, try to RP on a more nuanced civilian more so the admin team can get a taste for your RP style (I have been absent for 2-3 weeks so if you have, forgive me) The VSS thing is complicated, yeah. I wouldn't have allowed it myself. As for someone who creates bullets/ repairs firearms, if you're dealing mostly with eastern weapons it'd be much less of a useful skill considering this takes place in the USA Furthermore, we have no real way to enforce the repaired items possibly 'blowing up' as per your idea you had mentioned unless we tie an admin next to every player shooting a weapon modded/repaired by the character. It wouldn't work well, and I'm sure people would inevitably feel targeted when they were told their firearm malfunctioned. As I've said on numerous other apps before this one, the backstory stuff is awesome for character building and while we are to a degree concerned with that, as it is 4 years into the apoc the info that is more interesting is how the character lived from 2016-now; the troubles and tribulations they faced. However, regardless denied via request by poster.
  13. Yes, you are granted a fishing pole lol ive been working on trying to get a working fishing system but they're all broke so /shrug
  14. There is still lua screaming ahead, I need to tweak whisper radius and chat color which literally toasted the test server Onward and upward, as they say
