    Hello there fellow Serious RPers.

    I'm Noah, and you may know me from a post in the community section about a failed Steampunk RP. But, the error there was on me, I built a server for like 8 people and then none of them got on, so, I'm going to do a bit of market research this time.

    My question to you guys is, would you be interested in playing on (and I don't mean hypothetically, if you say yes I expect you to actually hit join!) a serious RP server set in Berlin during World War 2. The setting could be adjusted slightly, but the goal here is to get an idea of whether or not people, in general, like the idea.

    So, please vote! I'm going to be using it for my main feedback mechanism! Also, any criticism/advice for a fledgling server owner is also extremely welcome! I want to build a community and I'm open to ideas of just about any kind!

    Don't make a server at all, because nobody is going to play on it. Good servers are not started by people like you, and I'm not saying that to be a dick, I'm saying that so you don't waste your time. It's like asking people what they want to see at your birthday party, while you don't even have any friends to invite. Your party is going to suck because no one is going to show up, so the question of what people want to see at the party is pointless. You can have the biggest and coolest shit at your party, and it will all be for nothing because nobody will attend it.

    You don't know any people, so your server is just going to die. That's the unfortunate reality. You need some good friends who have a genuine interest in your schema and don't mind playing with few people. If you get to 8-10 people, the server just advertises itself and will actually be able to grow, but if you're using a custom schema, then it becomes more difficult.

    What Duck said.

    And naziRP is waiting for trouble.

    GMod community is toxic so you are just going to get your hands full of psuedo-computer-warrior-communists and jew haters.
    People /will/ get their history wrong.
    I don't know what you want to do in Berlin with a "nazi occupation", Berlin wasn't occupied by nazi's. It was their central government, all resources went there.

    Up until 1944/1945 people in Berlin were having a fantastic time. When the Soviets were trampling towards Berlin a lot of the supplies stopped and people were enlisted in shitty Volkssturm things.

    I don't see the interest in that RP. Either it's going to be a Cider 2 RP in the 40s. Or it's going to be a Cider 2 RP in the 40s with edgy alt-right players playing their fucked up characters or going to be a militaryrp with civilians getting caught in the middle.

    all of above concepts will fail.

    if you want to make it hl2rp, make it happen in german occupied paris or something in 1941

    setting it in berlin just invites edgelords that would want to play "cool nazi characters" who would roleplay exterminating jews

    tbh it's just not a good idea in general

    theoretically you can make a survival rp server that is set during the last months/weeks of the nazi germany

    this will grant you access to a variety of different factions such as americans, nazis, german defectors, soviets, revolutioners, spies, etc. there will be no boring civilan roleplay because there's no civility in the sieged berlin

    just throwing some ideas

    That's the plan.

    I do have friends to invite, but I'm trying to get more people, that's why I'm doing market research. I'm trying to figure out (using your analogy) what kinds of things might get people that wouldn't have come to my party, to come on.

    Also, I can get 8-10 people with a genuine interest, I'm trying to get people to supplement them is all.
    Ok.
    I see your point about a Nazi RP waiting for trouble. That's part of why I'm trying to get an idea of what people might enjoy playing on.
    Ok.
    Noted.

    Is this like one of those alt-right fantasy servers? Honestly from what was described I see endless cringe and fringe political ideology. This'll likely end up on Notscript with mic's enabled regardless :p

    Generally, you don't want to do anything "historical". Let's be honest here, World War 2 related anything isn't exactly original at this point. If you absolutely HAVE to do something historical, focus on an underappreciated time period that not many people know about, like the Persian Gulf War or the American Revolution (which isn't particularly unknown, but underdeveloped).

    Let's be honest here, @duck is right on the money. You need to gain a better understanding of the roleplay community and garner a following before you start making your servers.

    Fuck off Raklo.

    Not the plan at all. It's just something my rp friends suggested to me when I brought up the idea of alternatives to HL2RP.

    Well, I don't want to be entirely original, considering total originality is what I did before with my Steampunk RP, and that got me zero players.

    As for the point of understanding the roleplay community... I've been playing HL2RP for something like four years now on and off, I've staffed servers, managed factions, and played on at least 50 or so different Clockwork or a different framework servers in my four years of Serious RP. The entire reason I'm now starting to make my own server is because I do have a following, they just aren't enough by themselves to start a community.
