    Merry Christmas and happy new year in advance everyone!

    What is [GM]?
    [GM] is an old community that houses several branches including Garry's Mod, Minecraft and more. Our main focus is roleplay and getting people involved in the storyline.

    What does [GM] stand for?
    Throughout the years, it has stood for something different for each and every person, but recently we decided to finally give it an official name, Gerbil Mountain (reserved).

    What are your goals and aspirations?
    To take gaming to the next level, to create a new form of realism that has never been seen before.

    What is the storyline for the current events?
    Welcome to Paradise
    You wake up with amnesia and have no memories. You can't seem to be able to control yourself, as if you were in a dream.
    As you explore your current location you realize that you are in paradise, a place that you have dreamed of but never actually been to.
    You suddenly see other people walking around, a lot of them look the same and you wonder why.

    You see a man jumping off a nearby cliff and people ignoring his demise, you wonder why.
    You walk towards the edge and look down, the body is floating in the water but suddenly vanishes.
    You get a bad feeling and you walk away from the edge. As you walk away you bump into someone, it's the man that jumped off the cliff!
    You ask him how he is alive, how he got there; he says: "I have no idea".
    The man glares at you for a second and suddenly walks off as if nothing happened.

    You feel like drinking something that will help you relax when a bottle labeled "Whiskey" appears in front of you.
    You drink it all and feel less thirsty but you realize that nothing else changes, you don't feel intoxicated.
    You walk over to the edge of the paradise and throw the bottle down, you wonder what the future will bring.
    This place gives you a bad feeling, as if something was not right; even though it is a Paradise.
    You suddenly feel less restrained, you are no longer held back and you can control yourself.

    You can not escape the paradise, even death can't save you. What you will make of your visit is up to you.

    Welcome, to Paradise.

    The Zodiac - Will you survive?
    Eleven people receive a strange envelope that looks old. It is sealed with red wax and it intrigues them. They open the letter and by the looks of it, it's an invitation to spend the weekend at a rural village in the mountains, all expenses paid! They are promised a lot of entertainment and the time of their lives. Little do they know that the Zodiac is pulling the strings, will they survive?

    That sounds quite interesting, but for how long will it last?
    The Paradise event will stop once the script is finished and the puzzles have been solved.
    We'll see how long the scary event lasts, we have not decided yet.

    Puzzles in Paradise?
    Yes, to keep everyone busy and entertained we come up with puzzles that they need to solve in order to get out. Teamwork is of course crucial in all of these puzzles.


    Are you using a custom map?
    The Paradise server is currently not up as we are making our very own custom map for it, screenshots can be seen below.

    Screenshots of the new map (more will be available soon), W.I.P




















    Do you use any custom content for the Paradise server (once it's up again)?
    Yes, all of which can be downloaded from the server itself (fast/dl) or through our svn.
    http://svn2.assembla.com/svn/gmservers

    What makes you different from the rest?
    It's the way we roleplay that makes us stand out, it can't really be described in words; it has to be experienced.
    We do a lot of passive roleplay, big events happen all the time and we make sure that everyone gets involved.

    We even have a comic that is based on the rp that occurs on the server:
    http://gmservers.co.uk/smf/index.php?topic=83.0

    Are you looking for able admins, mappers, modelers and such?
    Absolutely, just apply on the forums!

    Do you have any specific requirements when it comes to adminship?
    You need to be dedicated and hard-working, besides that it's pretty much common sense.

    Can you give me any more information about possible recruitment to the team?
    Absolutely, please visit the following thread for more information:
    http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=912163

    Do you have any servers at the moment?

    Garry's Mod Build/Spacebuild Server

    Do you have a website/steam group or a forum that we can visit?

    Absolutely! http://www.gmservers.co.uk

    [GM] is the best community I have ever been part of, the admins are nice and helpful and they taught me to roleplay properly. I used to play DarkRP and my rp skills were not really anything to brag about, but they helped me improve and I felt very welcome. They are like a big family, one which I am glad to be a part of. The main branch (RP) is the one that I enjoy the most, but spacebuild and build are also fun. The admins are helpful with whatever problems I may have and have given me plenty of chances throughout the years.

    Elite, you don't need our permission to join and play on the server. It is not passworded and we will help you in any way we can if you need it.

    Deutsch, you should be able to connect with no problems at all.

    I'll take a look at it right away.

    Edit:
    Perhaps it is because you need to download too much content. You should try downloading our svn and joining again after that.

    Here is a guide!

    Guide
    1. Download and install Tortoise SVN http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/
    2. Restart your computer in order for Tortoise SVN to finish the installation completely.
    3. Create a new folder called gmrpcontent (DO NOT PLACE THIS ONE IN YOUR ADDONS FOLDER!)
    4. Right-click on it and select SVN Checkout...
    5. Where it says Url of repository enter:http://svn2.assembla.com/svn/gmservers
    6. Hit OK (If it asks you for a username/password it is either anon/anon or anonsvn/anonsvn
    7. When the process is finished, right-click on the folder and chose export
    8. Browse to your addons folder and let it export there.
    9. A folder called gmrpcontent should now be located in your addons folder, you are finished!
    10. Whenever you want to update, right-click the gmrpcontent folder that you created in step number 3 and select SVN Update. Afterwards repeat step 7 and onwards.

    Quite a few in the [GM]Community had no facepunch account, so they decided to create accounts in order to post a reply.

    @Exploit.
    Credit is given within the gamemode, it was never removed.

    I know the creators personally, after discussing the matter with one of them (the other one has left steam methinks) it was decided that no more credit needs to be given. Credit only needs to be given within the gamemode itself.

    Seems like an interesting concept. The only problem is withthe script not being complete at this point users would have to constantly download it, which is a pain in the ass for me and probably some others. The idea of a mostly dynamic RP is a good one though, stops it getting stale.

    How player influenced is the storyline? If the players were to only get a few of the puzzles done would the storyline take a u-turn the the ideal one, if they figured out none would the story even progress?

    Ah, [BB]Roleplay. I miss that server :)

    I used to play on there all the time before I started my own community, I was an admin for quite some time too.
    I was sort of "born" there rp-wise, it was the first roleplay-server that I ever joined. I have them to thank for everything.

    Heck, I even use [BB]Servers as a server host!

    We don't make weekly update if that's what you think, more like monthly updates with a lot of changes.

    We have one update coming up and we have not altered the whole gamemode which means that the players who join will not need to download all of the clientside files over again, only a few.

    The players influence the storyline greatly, without them; there is no way of ever getting out.
    We have small passive rp moments every day or so but nothing that really does anything but add to the roleplay experience.

    The roleplay is what the players make it, passive rp is a large part of the roleplay that we have on the server. The roleplay works both ways, the passive rp comes to the players but they also have to make it come to others every now and then for the storyline to progress.

    Each and every part of the puzzle progresses the storyline even further, if you don't solve the puzzles; you can't get out.
    As stated before we do a lot of passive rp that does not involve the puzzles themselves, to avoid the rp becoming dull etc.

    Solving the puzzles is up to the players, without them; we will stay in Paradise for all eternity.

    Heh, I was about to call you names for using a leaked script, but I think you bought RP08 instead. You know we're developing an entirely new RP script right?

    @Dave
    I'm glad you didn't start calling me names because I'm most definitely not using a leaked script as a base. Just to be clear, I was given the script for free by Teddi; I would never buy a gamemode. Too bad you disregarded my first post, now the mystery is out.

    Here is the section in my first post regarding this matter:

    "I know what gamemode base you are using, why don't you give the authors credit in this thread?
    Good for you, but please don't tell everyone on facepunch.
    We like keeping it all a tad mysterious.

    I have spoken to one of the creators of the base gamemode and he said that credit only needs to be given within the gamemode."

    Regarding the new script, I've seen the screenshots; looks quite good!
    I'm not completely up to speed about [BB]Roleplay though, I heard some time ago that [BB] is sort of moving away from roleplay; perhaps the information was wrong.

    I came... now you come?
    Why even join the server if all you are going to do is break the rules and refuse to listen?
    We gave you both more than 5 chances, enough is enough.

    There are no screenshots. If you saw RP09, that's old and buggy, because it was based on 4 year old code. We've only been developing for a few days.

    Just to give you all an update on the current situation + bump the thread:
    The new map is coming along great (new screenshots will be added shortly). We are also working on a script update which will be implemented shortly.
    Heck, we are even working on our very own theme song + a soundtrack compilation (of music that we make).

    I will update this thread further once I have more information to share.

    In the meantime, I'll let you know that we start recruiting admins again April 26th.

    Have a nice day!

    Not anywhere did we say that the script is near completion, we aim to change pretty much everything (including the derma).

    And as stated in the thread multiple times already, credit is given within the gamemode. I have spoken with the creators of the original script personally and they said that no credit was needed in the thread.

    I don't mind the flamers or the trolls, they just bump the thread with their failed attempts of making us look bad. They end up making a fool of themselves instead of us.
