Criticisms

Things that ruin the game for everyone else.

The Gamemode Itself

A lot of people think DarkRP in Garry's Mod is stupid, boring and violent for RP. Previous versions of the Gamemode were poorly coded and as a result had several major issues until a recent revision of the code by it's current developer FPtje. Players also think that pre-determined jobs and scripted entities ruin creativity for role players.

Deathmatching

DarkRP tends to attract deathmatchers and ruin the gamemode, but there are measures that can be taken to keep the peace.

  • Raise gun prices or restrict them altogether.
  • Set server variables to automatically kick random deathmatchers.
  • Restrict prop spawning and/or the physics gun to prevent prop deathmatching. (as well as prop_surfing.)
  • Enable noob-protection in the Propprotection
  • Enable Spawn-protection through server commands
  • Make the server private
  • Have active and alert admins on the server
