    Went in the server, killed an admin, the admin voided the situation to avoid losing his weapons then banned me. +1

    Just wanting to put in my two cents:

    So,

    Why do ex-soldiers belong in the Civil Protection? Typically they are amputated, stalkerized, or transhumanized. I understand custom lore for a server, but usually these types of lore ends up with admins turning into an American Sniper killing off 4 units at a time with no repurcussions. So tell me, why/how does it fit this server?

    The lore I usually see in servers, is that soldiers no matter what specops experiences they have, are immediately amputated to prevent future conflict within the Union, even if they were collaborators. I'm just curious on how this fully works for Origins... like correct me if I'm wrong but it is a big no no to have any type of citizen (even civil protection), with a special forces background. It gives the player's character a major power-gamey advantage.

    LOL. Typical OfC SpEcTeR SpEcoPs. Also, ball torture becomes a topic before the second page. Real nice.

    Read between the lines. This entire question could be answered with "custom lore". I'd also like to see wherever this was confirmed in the actual game.

    It went from basic lore to custom really fast. By the creation of this thread to now, the servers changed.

    That Was what we were doing, but certain members of staff disregarded this and made our lore a 180 from canon.

    Plus, that was never implemented. Dont know where you got that. I do agree the personnel file was cringe, though.

    I'm going by the Half-Life 2 Beta lore...
    http://half-life.wikia.com/wiki/Conscripts

    It says that the remaining soldiers are requisitioned into the Conscripts. Keyword "remaining", meaning that those who were left after the war. I mainly just said that they were stalkerized, transhumanized, or amputated due to so many servers adapting to this lore, so my bad if it doesn't fit this server's.

  17. Hi folks, I'm part of the staff team on the Origins server. Some of you would probably recognize me from there or from other past communities.

    Just to clarify with everyone here, I'm gonnae keep it simple, and unbiased. I'm just gonnae start by saying that the server's originality was heavily changed over the course of a few weeks. We did start off with the City 18 map and the reason we wanted to go back towards the original approach that Half Life 2 RP first started off with years ago, was due to the fact we didn't want anything highly customized and we wanted to run by what you could actually see from playing Half Life 2 itself. We thought it was a great idea.

    At first we thought it wouldn't work, and we were right, it was clearly evident that this wasn't the case, until we started to pick up a playerbase of likeminded individuals. We also didn't want to head towards bringing in various workshop items. We *did* get model packs to bring in High-Definition models for all factions such as the MPF, CWU and including the Citizens, but other than that, that was really the only workshop items we had. Thing is when we switched to Industrial-17 things started to pick up even further, which was actually great, but the demands from other individuals became a bit rampant when the wishes for M9K, these SPECTRE units folks are talking about etc became a wee bit rampant.

    I, personally, didn't like the changes; I didn't entirely agree to following this approach majorly, and so the further this kept going, the "180° turn" that is mentioned above was basically what's driven us here at the moment. Yes, I will admit this, people brang in things from other communities for their own personal use, and speaking on EJ's behalf, he was interested at first until it started to become evident that they would also come to cause problems / issues due to their over-use. There was also plugins, items, "special" characters and actions taken at times without the knowledge of EJ.

    However, some folks here did contribute to the server until the fighting started. There was some conflict between some of the players and administration that eventually escalated and caused swift bans or kicks. I'll even admit, that's quite silly. Then again, there were others that came on that were trying to generally troll or cause intentional harm to the playerbase, so there's two sides of this.

    Origins was a community created to bring the RP back to its roots, it just took a bit of a side-turn, sadly.

    If any questions or if you want to discuss anything specific, please fire them at me or add me on steam so we can talk about it. Any criticism and suggestions will be heard and I will bring them up with specific individuals in propper manner. Cheers.

    Thread Locked.
    I'd like to remind everyone, causing drama is against the rules (Rule 7), and I will be giving warnings out.

    Thread also pruned of all drama posts.
