  Staff Meeting
Posted by: YodaTheSith - 01-04-2017, 05:35 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (11)

There will be a meeting on Friday 6th January 2017 at 5:00 (GMT). This is Staff only and is mandatory. If you cannot come please post on this thread. 

We will be going over mentoring, how to post mentor threads and how to deal with situations involving staff etc. I feel this needs to be said as many people have forgotten/ignored some of the guidelines and mandatory things set.

  Update Tonight
Posted by: HStorm - 12-30-2016, 12:00 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (5)

I would first of like to thank everyone for being very patient over the last few days with my response times etc. I have been really sick and really have been struggling to get on for this reason. I have woke up this morning and am feeling a lot better.

There are going to be 2 updates coming tonight the first is going to be the Call Of Gmod 1 server this will be locked tonight sometime where I will be balancing classes, adding/changing maps adding logs and more. The call Of Gmod 2 server will still be up for people to play on while server 1 is being updated. 

The MilitaryRP will also be having a massive update and rebrand there will be a full change log and post tonight about this.

I have been thinking over the last week and I feel before the new year starts I feel there is going to be a big change over the staff team across both servers. Many staff members in my opinion are making excuses and not enjoying the community as much and just making excuses to not come on which is not right. My decision will be final and will not change. There will be some promotions and demotions which will also be put on the forum tonight.

There will also be a meeting on the 2nd of January 2017 however there will be a post in the coming days.

Tonight me and Fred have done an update on the Call Of Gmod server 2. Before I get into what has changed we have two Call of Gmod Servers:

Call Of Gmod 1
Call Of Gmod 2

PLEASE REMEMBER STATS CARRY OVER FROM SERVER TO SERVER
eg if you are level 40 on server 1 hop on server 2 you will have the same stats!)

Me and Fr3dden have spent all of the night updating the Call Of Gmod 2 Server. We have revamped all of the maps and made the Call Of Gmod 2 server DOWNTOWN maps only. This will give the Call Of Gmod 1 server a chance to rotate around the maps other than downtown a little bit more.
There will updates coming over the next few days both call of Gmod Server 1 and 2 featuring things like Zones this will stop spawn killing what will happen is the Taliban spawn will not be able to be accessed by marines and marines will not be able to get close enough to Taliban to spawn kill them. We will also be working on the map voting system, Time Trackers and much more. We will be re-balancing the classes to make the teams a lot more fair. Full changelog will be posted each update.

Call Of Gmod Server 1 Map Pool     188.165.238.156:27015
RP_PIG
rp_downtown_v4c_thehighway (XMAS Map will be removed in January sometime)
rp_Bangclaw
rp_blacklake
Raid_Preditor
rp_downtown_v4c_v2

Call Of Gmod Server 2 Map Pool    164.132.4.18:27015
rp_downtown_v4c_v2
rp_downtown_v4c_thehighway (XMAS Map will be removed in January sometime)
rp_downtown_v4c_v3
RP_downtown_evilmelon_v1
rp_bangclaw_drp_winter_v1 (XMAS Map will be removed in January sometime unless not liked)
rp_downtown_frp_v1

There will also be a MilitaryRP update which will be a huge update and revamp the server in the next coming days will be explained in a separate thread when completed.

I would like to Thank Fr3dden for his help all of tonight I have actually been really really sick from around 5PM till not if honest and he offered to stay up all night with me to fix spawns for the Call Of Gmod server 2 in order to make this release today rather than tomorrow. This really did help me and saved me around 2-3 hours. Fr3dden also helped with making sure everyone's data links from server 1 to server 2 this took us hours but worth the effort. I would like to thank everyone that has been really patient coming on the server and supporting the server in anyway possible we really appreciate it whether thats adding IWIKU to your steam name or donating money. We are always looking for suggestions and working hard to get updates done as fast as possible.

ThankYou

HStorm


  Call Of Gmod Update
Posted by: HStorm - 12-27-2016, 12:53 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (5)

There has been a small update on the Call Of Gmod server changing a few maps around and adding some new maps.

MAPS REMOVED
rp_cataylist_3b
cityruins

MAPS ADDED
RP_PIG
rp_downtown_v4c_thehighway (XMAS Map will be removed in January sometime)
rp_Bangclaw
rp_blacklake

Current Map Pool
RP_PIG
rp_downtown_v4c_thehighway (XMAS Map will be removed in January sometime)
rp_Bangclaw
rp_blacklake
Raid_Preditor
rp_downtown_v4c_v2

If people find maps they would like to add in the future they should definitely make a suggestion we are working really hard in making improvements on the server. There will be an update on this server tonight where some jobs will be balanced among other things.

There are some there maps on the server however these are not ready or default maps on the server. Use only the current map pool changing to a map not in the current map pool will result in immediate strip of rank.

Hope everyone had a good Christmas

On a side note I would like to note the work of an outstanding member on this community. The call Of Gmod server has done very well today and I have had numerous people say to this 1 staff member is great over and over again. Everyone seems to know his name on the server and he has done an excellent job. His name is Elliscool23. I have run a server for 2 years and never had these sort of numbers on one of my servers from 1AM onwards which is very impressive
Its really nice to see people come up to me saying this is amazing keep up the good work etc etc really good.

This is great to see so many people like this gamemode I have created I have been informed on many bugs which are currently in progress of being fixed. There will also be 3 new maps coming to this server 2 staying permanently if liked and one is a Christmas map which will stay till January. I would like to say thanks to the people who have helped along so far and the dedicated users who come on and enjoy the server.


However 2 biggest appreciations have to go to
QuickSilver for getting being at times the only person on wanting this server to grow and willing to sit there and wait

Elliscool23 for helping every player on the server and spending a huge amount of time making events, helping out players on the server and generally just being on constantly. I know I already mentioned him above but that was briefly

Everyone who plays any of my Garry's Mod servers and enjoys it helps this community progress forward and rise to becoming the best Garry's Mod community we possibly can..

Lets keep this sort of stuff up I have many new ideas planned for that server any suggestions will also be great. I have made sections on the forum for this server and if you click apply for staff applications for this server are now open. Lets progress this community forward not back!

There will be an update on the MilitaryRP this coming weekend maybe Monday night latest this will include new cars vehicles and more

Have a nice Christmas

  Update / Xmas Sale / Giveaways
Posted by: HStorm - 12-21-2016, 06:53 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (7)

So tonight I have done a major update on both the MilitaryRP and the Desert Warfare with a further update coming tonight focusing more on new content and addition/changes to vehicles.  

MilitaryRP
 I have noticed the server has been lagging an insane amount making it not enjoyable for many people. Another major issue was the constant map restarting because of the lag. Many people also complained about LOW FPS again making it not fun an enjoyable. I know the issue and have found a solution to this. I have decided to change the map to rp_predator_v3_016. Yes we have used this map previously however the FPS was much higher on this map for some people triple the amount of the current map. The lag issue will also decrease heavily. The bugs previously seen on the map have now been fixed. We will be sticking to this map for time to come. 

Things I have fixed on this map that caused us a problem before
- There was no PD? Now there is with a buyable door the lot.
- All houses in the town have buyable doors
- Fixed all the spawns
- Fixed the underground

Full change log here http://www.iwikugaming.com/showthread.ph...7#pid36567

The other more serious issue on the map was the driving, tonight when the server is locked I will have a fix for that a change of many cars which would be more appropriate to MilitaryRP and even some Bikes. Any cars that will be removed you will have the option to sell them still dont worry you will not lose any money. By using this map we have a lot more advantages where previously we didn't now with the lag reduced based using this map I can change a lot of things to improve the server. This will make the experience on IWIKU Gaming fun again with a high populated server. In the near future for people that did like the old map I will be introducing a second server with a much smaller count for people to play on therefore no lag however that will be in the future.

Desert Warfare Now Call Of Gmod
I have done a major update on the Desert Warfare server by reconstructing the gamemode and making more appealing to the Garry's mod community. I have changed the gamemode to Call Of Gmod. I have done this because the server is a lot like Call Of Duty however with my twist on things. The gamemode has been completely redesigned and bug tested. From unassigned now being unkillable to fixing the level system so you get xp for killing anyone. Changing the gamemode name means I can also expand the map pool in the near future. In the future I will be adding prestige badges therefore there will be a good reason to prestige. There will also be new playermodels and new jobs. Everyones stats have also been reset to make it fair as a few people cheated killing unassigned people. The server will be re released 22/12/2016 you can enjoy the MilitaryRP update for tommorrow

XMAS SALE
FROM the 24/12/2016 - 02/01/2017 there will be a 50% sale on all donations apart from Custom Jobs. Honestly I do 2 sales a year this being one of them therefore I would cash in while i can. This is the biggest sale I have ever done on my community for 3 years. The reason it will be 50% off all items is i feel the servers performance has not been at its best and now today is its time to change.

MEETNG
There will be NO meeting this Saturday due to it being Christmas on the Sunday for most people. For Scandinavian people Christmas is actually on the 24th therefore putting a meeting on this day would not be suitable.

IWIKU 
When you put IWIKU name in steam or infact anywhere you should feel great pride you are apart of a community where you feel welcomes. You should add it to your steam name it to support the community and to show you are apart of this community. When you have the logo or clan tag you are representing this community. Your actions could effect this community name especially staff members. When i hear someone say " Your representing this community when your doing that (Doing something wrong)" and someones response is "Big deal" thats not the response I would like to hear like I said you should feel proud wearing it to support the community and to show off what you are apart of. If you cant donate or just want to show what server you are staff/apart of we allow anyone to add IWIKU to the start of there name but if you are not going to respect the community dont add it to your steam name it please

Mentor System / Staff Of The Week
For those people who couldn't access the spreadsheet now you can. I have edited and changed peoples mentors. I am going to make a post on how it works as I feel the system is not being used correctly. I am also introducing a new thing which will be called "Mentor of the Month" This will go to the person who Me, Fred, headadmins choose. Superadmins down have the chance to win this. We will be looking to see who has done the best job mentoring people that month and reward them Mentor of the Month and a free £5 IWIKU voucher which can be used for themselves of the person of there choice on the donation system. This should encourage people to help people progress up the staff team. Please remember I dont need to do this i CHOOSE to do this for you therefore please try your best to do your job and help community out resign rather than make me have to demote you because of inactivity etc.

Moving onto staff of the week as I explained in the meeting there will be a points system for staff of the week when you hit 3 points you will receive a £5 IWIKU voucher. You need to be staff of the week 3 times thats it to get that. There will be a spreadsheet for this coming today. Therefore potentially you could have £10 to spend in the donation system in a month for FREE? Name me another server that does that... Why will I be doing this have a I lost my mind? No I am doing this to REWARD the staff for taking as many sits as they can and helping people become better staff members which will give me more time to do updates rather than take the sits. 

Giveaways
There will be a few giveaways on the server from 23/12/2016 - 01/01/2017 stay tuned for that this will NOT be everyday. I am also going to be surprising a lot of people Thursday where the day a lot of people have been waiting for may come true. This THURSDAY I will be roleplaying at some point during the day,  yes you heard it roleplaying. I am going to do this to try and bring more people on TS together and have some fun. Try and sort out rifts etc. I am assure many people will want to do that as a lot of people have not seen me roleplay for a very long time because I do not find the time to Smile Before I get the question will I join a gang No sorry. 

I would like to also say a thanks to WILL for spending 5 hours helping me with updates and Ezio for helping me for 3 hours test stuff out
Will was responsible for fixing all of the spawn points on the Military and the Call Of Gmod so if any are wrong blame him (Joking) If any are wrong I will fix them for you however making the spawns are very boring so thankyou for that 

Have a good day
