Utilize more NPC's?

Post  The Real Johnny on September 22nd 2013, 4:10 pm

After zombie invasion events on Bob's I see that the server has lots of capabilities for a higher amount of NPC's with no lag
SO:

Police: Police recruits (Metro cops) can spawn in or around the nexus, paroling or holding down checkpoints

Crims: Gangsters (Rebels) can spawn around the crim area, again patrolling or hanging around areas

Civilians can walk around town square and civilian spawn area. When crims own the city there are less civilians out. (Maybe theifs can mug NPC civilians?)

Perhaps the amount of NPC's are determined by how many points a team controls


All of this could be utilized to provide to the "Scale" of the server and it will make the server seem a little less "empty"; make the server a bit more lively and perhaps if there are 24+ people on the server then the NPC count could go down.

I recommend a full minute/ one and a half minutes for spawns of the NPC's (So it feels like you actually cleared out the area)

I'm surprised I haven't come around any RP servers that don't have NPC's like this, as I have talked to a bunch of people who like this idea




SIDE IDEA:
The Mayor/ Mob Boss can have NPC's guarding/ following them, so they won't feel the need to Alt+Shift so much (Basically a mental morale boost in a way)


Just something I kind of thought of

Sounds cool. Although I feel they will get killed, then your stuck with dead NPC bodies that seem to never go away.

Hmm I see, well for the bodies, I know for a fact that can be edited, as for running in the way, perhaps maybe NOT the civilians XD, then again it gives an incentive for people to watch their fire, IDK. It's just for immersion and chiz like that.

This is also a way for new players to get a feel for the weapon handling too.

Kind of thought you could do what you did with the zombies, where the ones in the subway won't attack you if you have a zombie job, or is it just me??? Shocked

Bad idea. Will stress the server even more.

My computer still can barely handle the Subway on the usual map.

-Support

Sorry. :< This just will bring down the servers usual decent performance, if it's not set correctly. Too many, people will complain about them, and it might affect server performance. Too few, and it will almost be like they are not even there.

Now, if it were a few Stationary NPCs selling basic weapons, persay pistols and such, at lowered prices for new players, that'd be fine.

Server being stressed? Ha, Wire can't even "stress" the server.
The reason why your computer can't handle the subway is because your computer is super slow and/or sucks

Wasn't that just a dumb Alex Vaynce AI? The regular City 17 citizens with guns seem decently intelligent...

Honestly, you should look into that XD if that make's your FPS drop it's time for a new computer, i mean my 2 year old laptop with 2 GB's of RAM runs smoothly with 60+ FPS when playing on Bob's server on the highest settings. Anyway's yeah I guess this may make people with bad computers get FPS issues.

I actually like that idea, scrap the combat shiz, perhaps a cool replacement for the dispensers? Gun dealers could buy "Merchants" to run the store
