i have a question we run rocmod on our server. about 20 % of the people that come in complain saying great server but it needs to be osp what is so great about osp is it that good where 20% of the peeps only want to play osp. what are the differences? or is it just personal prefference.
They probably don't like the sounds or anything like that..... People like them are confused about the mods also ... They think that because you run rocmod or osp, that the damage mod is different. It doesn't have to be, or it can be. See why they think you should be playing osp. Besides that, there are only a few forums left where you can get help on it where people know what they are talking about..
What Merrick said - ROCmod and OSP are Administration mods, and shouldn't really change gameplay that much, if at all. Gameplay changes are accomplished via other modifications added on top of OSP or ROCmod.
while rocmod is considered an "admin" mod, it does allow the ability to use sound tokens, many many more than that of the "radio" that is built into the game. While some people don't like this, others do. But yes. OSP and ROCmod does not change any of the game play. I run rocmod servers and can make them as standard or as different as i wish. I put together two of the Soffiles.com rocmod servers and they are as different as the clan servers i play on. Most that use osp also use the standard damage mod cause they don't know any better. So people that come from playing osp do not like rocmod in most cases.
MerrickDSMost that use osp also use the standard damage mod cause normal damage ( in lethal banana's opinion ) is way more fun than real damage.

that isn't what i said and that is your opinion... so i will just fix that ... again **added : people that play osp and lousy damage mods ( imo) aren't able to adapt to another damage mod. Obviously if you can't find ND, RD, XD servers (or a damage mod you like) then it wasn't that popular. In these cases i tell people this, If you can't find a server as such, start one. Or stop complaining. Obvious: if it is extinct it wasn't that much fun.

Fair enough. Though I don't agree with you that people who have OSP running use ND because they 'don't know any better'.
ok ... with all the posts that come in here about osp/rocmod ... People complain that the mods change the damage. People do not know any better. in either mod.
MerrickDS - Most that use osp also use the standard damage mod cause they don't know any better. - people that play osp and lousy damage mods ( imo) aren't able to adapt to another damage mod. .
A real osp hater I see.. . @. No we're just so use to the 'real gamé' that we cant relate to a newbie damage. CAUSE NOBODY PLAYS ND ROCMOD*!!!!* but anywayz, I've been discussin this with you before, and I know LB has too.. and I dont think we have to go over this again.. so we let you be and you let us be, right? :D and ssiBlade.. use whatever mod that fits you/clan! everybody have different opinions, so it seems .. n so be it!
1) you aren't used to the "real game" zrest was the real game not the damage mod put out by osp ... Get the facts. The game untouched by any mod was the " real " damage. 2) it isn't about newbie damage, people play the way they play and it is obvious that nobody ( and i say this lightly) enjoys ND or you wouldn't be complaining about the fact that there are no nd servers around anymore. Let me make this abundantly clear. I do not nor have i ever hated osp. I disliked the fact that people that ran the osp servers had no clue about damage mods and so on. They thought the damage mod that was put out with osp was the original in most cases and that is most deffinitely not the case. as LB has tried to make my statement correct ( in which it wasn't), some people consider ND fun, some people consider RD fun, some people like something right in the middle ..... You can't please everyone, the issue is people don't understand what it is they are trying to do with these mods.
As i said ... How many questions and times has it been that someone comes in and asks why the rocmod damage sucks or the osp damage sucks? THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND. :D
