Looking for an RPG server

Recommended Posts

So, I came back to MTASA after some time to find out pretty much all of the biggest RPG servers are utterly horrible visually and functionally alike. There are some cool new things, but in the end, the custom cars everywhere, nonsense jobs and more custom crap nobody ever needed anyway is what makes me always leave. They are all way too overdone, too complex and need a massive cleanup/streamlining.

What Im looking for is an RPG server that:

1) is populated and English speaking

2) has useful and multiplayer jobs

For example you need to take a taxi driven by a player to get around, you cannot teleport or just steal a random car and go yourself, taxi drivers dont deliver NPCs but players)

3) has jobs, that are fun to do

On other servers the only fun jobs are cop or criminal as you actually do something. Other jobs are usually very boring, just going to checkpoints and waiting (trucker, bus driver) and that is something I don't want in any circumstance.

4) where being busted by cops doesn't mean you waste your time in a cell, but you get either released immediately (with a fine or something like in the singleplayer) or wait less than a minute for the biggest of crimes.

5) doesn't have teleport or any other fast travel

I want a server where fast travel means going to the airport and getting flown to another city by a player (pilot)

6) uses as little custom visuals as possible and uses only those new/custom visuals and features, that are neccessary for improving gameplay.

7) has a simple gameplay and rules

8 ) doesn't have any "premium" that gives advantage to paying players

9) IS NOT an RP server, I can't stand that sh** for real

 

Basically what I'm looking for is something between RPG and RP. Although there was once a great RPG server that met 80% of my requirements, and that was the first SANL (San Andreas No Limits) from many years ago. Gameplay was simple but much more fun, civilian jobs had a purpose etc.

Yeah I might do just that if theres nothing acceptable in months or years from now. Right now however I have little motivation to build and upkeep a big project on my own. Dont have the skills, dont have the time either. And I certainly dont want to half-ass the thing to give MTA players another crappy server among million others in the browser. If I ever start the project, I want to do it properly, not randomly add some broken stuff, disappear and then do the same again, thats just terrible.

So here I am, looking for already made servers that would float my boat. And who knows, maybe one day Ill be the one co-shaping them into greatness along with their founders.

I havent found anything of that name in the server browser. But I did find Knuck working on the URC, so its hopefully getting closer to opening.

Okey. I appreciate you opening the server to us. +1

Anyway, as for my first impressions, I feel bamboozled like a shober. How could you read my main post and then say this was the server I was looking for? The very first thing I had to do was download 38 MB, then I was greeted by custom HUD and radar. Then I spawned in a whole custom hospital, met a car spawner after that and finally I teleported from the bus station on pershing square. This is the exact opposite of what I wrote about.

Maybe you ended up in wrong thread or I dont know what happened, but if you really meant what you said, you should start with the vanilla game and RPG jobs. That means no teleports, no car spawners (except for houses) and no other custom crap (HUD, radar, textures, models, weapons). Once you have that, we will think what to do next.

So an update for everyone who isnt following the news:

URC has been closed down, everyone has migrated to UGN. Yet, that said, UGN is nothing more than a SAUR rip off, including most of their assets, including that damn voodoo corolla lol. And even if it was original, its just the same custom mainstream server. Not even close to what this topic is about.

So, yeah, my search continues.

PS If anyone ever tries that server lower your volume for christs sake or youll get Earraped after registration and then again after dying by the GTA SA theme music (quite long as well).

So I was recommended this "gamenet.ga" server, but sadly its an RP server and Im looking for an RPG. But hey, at least you can have a normal nick there (not like other RP servers) and the HUD and radar are somewhat normal so thats nice :D

I might try it some more later, but I dont think its what Im looking for.

It's not a RP, they use RP for the server name but it's not a roleplay just a rpg. Try it out.

Yeah I noticed there are some supposedly job icons and stuff. But then again, I asked in chat if it was RP or RPG and I was told "RolePlay". Anyway, I will try it some more when I have the time, kinda planned it anyway. Then Ill see whats what.

So after some more testing the gamenet roleplay shows some potential, however almost none of my points are reflected there anyway. Really appreciate that there is almost nothing custom, but apart from this and the server being english there is nothing else from my list. Jobs are singleplayer based (which I understand with low player count) and there is fast travel (again I understand with low player count).

Sadly, the job system is super confusing and counter-intuitive (getting to the work agency, then getting to your workplace, where for example Z icon stands for train driver is really confusing, and even after you get to the location marker you need to press a key again to actually get the job). Actually Ive never seen any help window on the server and I had to ask the players how the hell do I get a job. As for spawning vehicles, I just ran my fingers across the keyboard to find out how to do that. As for the english texts, they are badly written (and super funny at that), but thats a detail which can be easily fixed by someone who speaks english good enough.

In conclusion the server is not what Im looking for, but it has a solid base and can be converted to what Im looking for rather easily but of course its up to you if you want to change it for people like me or not.

I am having issues to understand two things about this thread;

First, why do you think someone will create a server exactly as your liking so you could play in it? I mean, with those specs, almost none will want to play so you are left alone. Just search for relevant specs and try to adapt, I know Its hard but that's life & it keeps on changing, so if your classic-vanilla is no more out there, find something close.

Second, you seem like you are talking alone. All these words you have written for what? You could've created two or three scripts instead.

Finally, game owners & developers don't usually look for a single player to invite to their game, but they go to populated areas and advertise to attract as much as they can. But to get you out of your misery I am going to drop that discord link here. If you felt like pressing, maybe then you can find something similar, I am not sure, but maybe.

Psst, I forgot to mention that the server that I am redirecting you to is still under development 😂😉
