    I've seen many people throwing around the word Semi-Serious and expecting the entire server to change overnight. People expecting this are in for a big surprise and possible disappointment, since this isn't going to happen.

    Although I did hint at in the announcement, I should have been more clear that the change from Lite RP to Semi-Serious RP is a process and not just a flick of a switch/instant change. The road ahead isn't just going to be unicorns and rainbows, it's going to require hard work all around getting the server to where we want it. I am however, 100% confident that it can be done. There is no reason why it can't be.

    I thought I'd make this post to give a general indication of what the process of switching to Semi-Serious entails.

    Here is a basic roadmap of the process. Please note that EVERYTHING is subject to change. The times stated in ( ) are estimates and could be longer/shorter.

    On Launch (Within the next 2 6 32 2 weeks - look here)
    - A variety of changes and updates I've been working on over the last month or so.
    - Server will be officially renamed to Semi-Serious.
    - Gamemode name will stay the same.
    - Map will stay the same.
    - No inventory/money wipe will occur on launch. We need to make sure everything is ready before this (Ie. Our goals are achieved if regards to the economy. Eg. Guns are more rare. No point wiping everything and then finding out that guns are still too easy to get)

    Short Term (2-6 weeks after launch*)
    - Inventory and money wipe. Hopefully after some tweaks and changes, we'll be ready with this. Some sort of "archive" system will be introduced where you will be able to see your old inventory and money. You'll be able to withdraw certain items from your archive (Hats, rare items, etc).
    - More roleplay specific updates will occur during this time. Catering specifically to make the server more serious.
    - Gamemode name change is possible at this time.
    - More TBA

    Medium Term (2-3 months after launch)
    - Possible map change.
    - Possibly adding proper vehicles, etc.
    - Possible skill system.
    - More TBA

    Long Term (3-6 months after launch)
    TBA

    *Due to IRL things, I'll be slightly less active for a week or 2 after launch. Perfect opportunity for the community to get its grip on things to come.

    Cant wait! Really like that we will be able to transfer our hats and rare items into our new inventory rather then just wiping our accounts clean. So happy !!!!:)

    This is kind of obvious, there's only like 3 rare items that aren't hats, or don't get made into other rare items.

    IMO those rare items which have no significant use except as something you can put in trade and go "HA I HAVE THIS RARE ITEM AND YOU DON'T" should really be re-tooled.

    Yay, I like this whole thing. Thanks for actually doing a money wipe, thought that you wouldn't do it, because *some* people would start whining like 5 year old girls.

    Semi-Serious launch is most likely going to be delayed by a week or 2 (or 3).

    Also, currently looking into moving the gamemode over to a "custom base". Meaning getting rid of DarkRP completely (as stated before, DarkRP is only really used for the base of the gamemode, and very little of it's features are being utilized).

    I feel like if you removed it from the DarkRP list new players would not come on.

    You can always salvage those in the "archive system" and sell it to gain an even bigger profit because I bet lots of those rare items (glue/turtles/dolls) will be wiped in some inventories.
    No one is going to really care that much to quit. They might cry and all but they'll just go back to farming and getting stacks on Benjamins on their beds.
