    a while back i would play Gmod a lot and there were always different types of player models for people to choose from(if possible) i think it would be cool to add them to where people that donate and people that are staff can use player models, more people will donate for them and that would mean more money






    fucking end my life please

    I have some experience with this on other serves and the conclusion = Cancer. I can explain everything here but you can better see it yourself. Private message me for the IP of the server so i wont advertise xD. Btw there is another post going about this im pretty sure.

    @Witch I think this could help bring in more money but... I think that maybe a special prisoner model and maybe Guard has a special model only available to donators... if all players CT and T had the same models available then it would give T'S that donate an advantage. I will explain.

    Example - Lets say you donate @Witch. You get the new Ninja player model. Well say there is also a CT that donates and he is also using the Ninja player model. (This is all hypothetical by the way) So lets say @Witch ends up getting out off stack or doesn't do the Wardens' command the CT'S probally won't kill @Witch because they think it is there fellow CT.

    This can make JB seem pay to win for some people.

    @Witch I actually have a speciality in code and making a skin model plugin is dead easy. But there are lots of consequences regarding this plugin. For example it sometime just glitches and makes the player model just lay on the ground for a few seconds. Will cause a lot of free kills and hard time

    The same reason we usually don't go for major additions is load time. I know someone already said this, but player models really will significantly increase the time.

    At least where we stand now with player count and such we can't afford to have long load times. If we had a much larger player base where people chose us over bigger groups, it might work, but not here.

    I'd say the best place for models would be if we had a mini games server or something of that sort.

    The loading time at atleast for me at under 5 seconds could be a bit longer, some things could be added. but idgaf about visual shit so i cant add much to it. We should have something thu, but maybe i just load in fast af

    Yes, and I don't think it would be worth the time spent into it. I think VIP is a good place to start but I don't know about a whole shop... Some things can make it seem pay to win which I don't think really anyone wants.

    Add guard and prisoner model to VIP shop. Will be for VIP only. Not much to download and it still looks nice not too strange.
