Hello ETS clan teammates and our trusted players,

here's the deal: I'd like to discuss the GEM server status with you today.

Basically the thing is it's empty around 99% of the time. Although applying GE mod seemed to be a neat plan, no one uses it. From what I heard and experienced myself, it's quite a pain to have 2 versions of the games just for this + I personally have no idea how to promote it or why is it even needed to be honest, as this mod makes the game so laggy (even more than it's already is, try A-bomb with GEM, you will get a picture).

Therefore, I've been thinking of something which will make this server being actually used for something (as I've noticed, we gave up an idea of having Private Server too, as it wasn't also used much).

I'd like to discuss two ideas:
1) First is a CO-OP public server without any mods but without any weapons and equipment restrictions, having the same (or similar) server rules as the main server.
2) Second is the other game mode like Barricaded Suspects/VIP escort.

I'd gladly hear your opinion on this matter.

This is the server Muppet provided to ETS from his own fundings. I'm not sure when is the expire date as I am on the tablet now. I will check it later. This is where I am pointing to the fact that the server expire date will not be extended from ETS fundings or recently inactive Muppet. It will become offline one day for sure.

While I like your ideas about changing the server purpose, I must say that we have been given the server from Muppet on the condition that it will be provided to ETS members and recruits and will mostly stay restricted for the public. However, as you said yourself, it has absolutly no use this way and so I hope Muppet will support any change we're going to do with it.

If we come to the conclusion about the server mod, we should keep in mind that the server is rather laggy. I have no idea why, it is just this way. Remember, lags might and most probably will damage any possible enjoyment you'd expect.

Should we discuss the style of the server it is going to take, I'd only like to bring up back the old, yet successful, topic of RMX (remix) server we used to have in ETS in the old days. I think it was great idea. We attracted more players and found it very interesting after all. RMX is meant to be a COOP server with RMX maps set to the basic map list - it had (would have) all other custom maps as well.

Edit:
The expire date is on 30.9.2015

I would like to say for this that the second point is a great idea this way everyone within the ETS and out can use the second server to provide extra help for that little improvement in BS and VIP Escort this way it helps to get ETS members out of their comfort zone of playing Co-op. It also helps the ETS members gather on either from training in the server to help improve people. As for myself would be benefited from this secondary server as it will help me to make more decisive decisions when playing BS or VIP. I say this because I tend to shoot more then arrest but on the occasion i do tend to arrest but this is rare.

Well Hunter I'm sadly to say that i do have to disagree and agree with a few points on what you have stated... First of all the RMX are sure a good idea and do pack a punch to the standard maps however by playing these rmx to me might get boring in future. To me at first playing only on rmx would be great. Lets be honest that actually the secondary server that has either been provided by Muppet or someone else should be open to the public why do i say this?? because i see that this community is so much more. More people will definitely come in and use it because thats the sort of community you guys are and to let other members of swat down will basically tell them to move onto a different server which I believe is something that you guys dont want because to be fair im sure you guys are more than welcome to help anyone in need of improvement. Hunter this is where i disagree since by locking the secondary server to only ets members will probably spark another scene like the private server that you held up which no one went in. I have a feeling that the other members will only join the coop server. My recommendation is that with xyzzy to have the secondary server as an open BS and VIP Server that way people can get more into the other game modes that they barely play and get better and soon will either beat others in the server and travel to other servers to compete their skills and knowing that they learnt from the best. I would also put a recommendation to have the Secondary server have these two bits or have the server dedicated to Custom Maps
@Accuser, if you disagree with me, then you disagree with youself. Honestly, I'm not sure what you disagree on as I fully support Xyzzy. I just said how it was with the server when I got it from Muppet. ;)
Remix server was just a suggestion, a.k.a. point no. 3 to Xyzzy's list. If you don't like it, don't. Everyone will be able to put their vote should we move further with it.

I would like to add a 4th point to xyzzy's list,If it is possible we can switch the server to SAS mod,it's a very nice mod that makes the game more realistic,and it's better than the GEM in my opinion,I played it a couple of times before with some players and some ETS members,it was really fun !
I honestly want to play it again but sadly there no available SWAT server compatible with this mod.
I'm voting for VIP escort, playing the mode gives me tons of fun :P The RMX idea is a good one as well.I'm sure Muppet would support any decision we make.
Okey. I have opened the poll in this topic. You can vote for 2 of the mods you like the best. Poll will run till 20.7.2015 (for 7 days).

I have also added a 'mixed' possibility - I am able to set the server to rotate mods (CO-OP, VIP, BS)

I really like the "all 3 modes mixed option", like CO-OP RMX/BS without respawns/VIP with weekly rotation or something.

I don't want to discourage any initiative or excitement here in this thread, but I wouldn't put so much effort in setting up a server that will probably only be up for a little over 2 months. As for the 'all in one' option, I woulnd't go there since it will only confuse people and make things more complicated. Usually people join a server based also on a certain mode they want to play. While having the server switch modes now and then sounds great for our own members who like to play many different modes, but it will probably only scare other people away. So I'd rather see the server stick to a single mode, preferable VIP, since that mode offers more tactical gameplay then baricated suspects in my opinion.

Also: SAS mod and RMX only server will cause the same issue of low activity like we had with the GEM. So I wouldn't prefer those either.
My vote for SAS mode game is more realistic :clap: :clap: :clap:

I also voted for SAS mod, but agree with Struis. Not to mention that server is lagging 90% of the time.

SAS Mod 1.0 has been installed on the server. Custom Maps are not uploaded yet.

Server has been updated to SAS Mod v1.1. I hope you will play there. If it stays empty all the time, I will just reinstall it to BS or VIP.
