  1. Everyone says the same thing, 'you can't KOS off playermodel', but you're entirely missing the point. If someone shoots at you, and you only see that they're say a Wookie, you'll start being on high alert for any Wookie players. Can you kill any Wookie you see? No. Can you be suspicious of them, watch them and see if they do anything else traitorous? Yes. That's quite literally the ENTIRE point of TTT, using deductive reasoning, evidence, and whatever else to find out who the traitors are and kill them... but can you do that if people can just change their playermodels every 2 seconds? Yes, but nowhere near as well. Playermodels were intended to just be a fun thing that people can use to be a little bit unique on the server and stand out from all the default players, NOT as a means to get a tactical advantage in-game... There's people using playermodels for something other than their intended purpose to get an advantage in-game, and nothings going to be done about it? That's literally exploiting which I'm sure I don't have to remind you is against the rules... just like how using !unstuck to get away from someone is exploiting because it's using that command for something it wasn't intended to be used for to get an advantage in-game... it's the same shit. There's a reason why literally every other TTT server from the dawn of time hasn't allowed people to change playermodels mid-round... at first when I joined Flux I thought it was just a major oversight that would be fixed soon, but I guess not. Is changing playermodels mid-game gamebreaking? No. But should it be a thing? Probably not.
  2. It shouldn't be a thing, simple as that. Despite not being able to KOS off of skin, it still gives the people who do it an advantage by throwing people off. Changing your playermodel mid-round should be part of the disguiser, or not a thing at all. It just makes sense that you shouldn't be able to change your playermodel mid-round, just like how you aren't allowed to change your name mid-round, it's essentially the same thing.
  3. Despite BlipBl0p being the way he is, you guys shouldn't be spamming him with false -reputation ratings... that just brings you down to his level. Thought you guys were better than this.
  4. The main reason I think they should have ADS is simply because pretty much every other gun has ADS. It doesn't really make a whole lot of sense to me that all the low-tier guns have ADS but then the top tier guns don't. I don't think adding ADS that gives you the tiniest bit extra accuracy is going to be game-breaking or make the guns 'OP' at all. Even with guns that have ADS I rarely use it because frankly it just doesn't do enough to warrant using it, in-fact I don't even remember the last time I didn't just hip fire, but for those very few select situations where someone is very far away and all you have is your Bloodsport or Howl, having that tiny bit of extra accuracy with ADS would be really helpful and since these guns cost over 50-100k I think ADS is deserved. ADS wouldn't make the guns laser beams by any means, just a tiny bit more accurate. Sorry for reviving this dead thread, I just still think ADS should be a thing for these weapons.
  5. I'm a believer in second chances, so I wouldn't mind seeing you get unbanned as long as you don't do anything against the rules.
  6. Both the Howl and the Bloodsport are top tier weapons that cost quite a lot, yet when you right click with them all you do is inspect the weapon. For such top tier guns I'd much rather have ADS that gives a little extra accuracy over some inspect animation I never use. Thoughts?

    He's also using a Bhop script and walls by the looks of it. He just went all out no fucks given. Good riddance.
  8. Server: Flux TTT (1, 2, & 3) Steam name: Retz (formerly known as 'baked' & 'baked bean') SteamID: STEAM_0:1:105449977 Age: 20 Recommendations: 1: Dr. Zoidberg (Mod) 2: Wookie (Community Manager) 3: Aeyon (Super Mod) ty guys for the recommendations :) Tell us about yourself. G'day, I'm Retz. I first joined Flux servers around 4 months ago as 'Retz', but only became active around 3 months ago when I was known as 'baked bean' & 'baked'. In the 3 months since I've gotten over 300 hours playtime on the servers, and had various other names for short times such as 'Dwight'. I currently don't work or study because I'm waiting to get into Uni, so I have all the spare time in the world. I usually spend that spare time on the TTT servers, playing other games, or watching videos online. I have to admit that I don't really talk a whole lot with my mic in-game. I much prefer to type or use the ttt_radio binds, so most of the time that's probably what you'll see me doing on the servers. The skins I usually play as on the servers are Wookie and Cloaker with no text hat. Why do you want to become staff? Because I see the server struggling from time to time with no staff online to deal with rule-breakers. I believe my availability will be very useful as I'd be able to get on during the 'off-times' (as well as during the 'on-times') when other staff usually can't get on, overall making the server a more pleasant place because I'd be on most of the time dealing with the rule-breakers. Wookie told me himself that "First impressions make a huge impact on people" which is exactly why I think staff need to be on as much as possible so players have good first impressions of the server. A lot of new players join the server when there is no staff online which means there is probably a lot of rule-breaking going on, which leaves a bad first impression on that player and they may never join again. I'd seek to stop the rule-breakers and be online as much as possible so players have good first impressions and hopefully stick to playing on Flux. I personally made a pretty bad first impression on this community with my last staff application, and I've been suffering the consequences for nearly 3 months since, but I hope I can prove myself with this opportunity. My availability paired with my prior TTT/Gmod staff experience and great understanding of the rules and the community I think would make me a prime candidate for a trial-mod. I am constantly lurking on the Discord watching what people are talking about, but admittedly I don't talk a whole lot myself, this is because I don't really have anyone/anything to talk to/about on there, so I just lurk. I'm only really active on the Discord to @TTT_Mods and chat from time to time. I am, however, the third most active person on the Forums, and I'm browsing them constantly. (if that means anything lmao) Do you have a microphone and how often do you use it? - Yes, I do. I do use it from time to time, but as I said above I much prefer to type. If this is a problem I can start using my mic more no sweat. How many hours do you have on Flux Servers? - 300+ Have you previously been a staff member on any Gmod servers? Yes, multiple: - Hogwarts RP (SBS): Moderator for a while, then Admin, then resigned. Also Forum Admin on their forums. - TTT (Poseidon Servers): Moderator for quite a while, then resigned. - DarkRP (Poseidon): Mod for a short while. - Moderator on two popular Aussie FiveM servers. Resigned on both. - Various other moderator jobs on other Gmod servers/games/etc. + more REQUIREMENTS: 48 hours playtime - ✔ 300+ A microphone - ✔ Active on Discord - ✔ No bans - ✔ Age - ✔ 20 Ask 3 staff - ✔ Asked many Anyways, thank you guys for reading my application. If you have any issues or questions, feel free to PM me. (PS if you see me editing my application heaps that's just because I'm very picky with my applications, I like to read it over and pick out mistakes and things I can improve.) Cheers, - Retz
  9. If it's at all possible, I think it would be a really good addition to the TTT servers if people could use the guns they have equipped (non-default TTT weapons) during Deathmatch. Not only would this allow players to practice with their guns during Deathmatch, but it would also just make deathmatch in general much more fun and interesting.
