Hey there! I'm Parky.

Hey! It's about time I came to the forums.

 

I'm Parky. I'm from sunny Scotland, and I'm studying Aeronautical Engineering. I've been in and out of roleplay games for a good while now, beginning I'm sure with Half-Life 2 RP on Garry's mod. I loved the lore and wanted to live in the moment, and it just so happened that I could. I spent a lot of time playing that gamemode, and learned a great deal of what I know today playing it. Unfortunately for some, this makes me the type of person that talks for 2 hours straight to another character, instead of just shooting them or whatever else. Apologies to my arresting officer at the prison.

I went on to become staff on about three of those types of servers, and created my own when I couldn't find just the right server. That lasted a nice little while, but unfortunately there was a huge decline in the gamemode's playerbase, which inevitably resulted in the gamemode going, as far as I'm aware, extinct. I had so many amazing times with that gamemode, and I'm still sad to see it gone. Although, it was beyond serious. A great learning time, if you had the time and patience, but not favoured by many.

After that, I danced around with DarkRP. This was a much less serious type of roleplay. In a scale, Eclipse GTAVRP would fall directly in the middle of the two. It was a bit of a break from the serious stuff. One of my problems with it though is that, well, I saw a lot of issues - mainly with staff organisation and attitude. I'd join a server, intending to just piss around and annoy people, but then end up feeling sorry for the staff, give them tips I've found in my experience with them, end up talking to the owner(s) and then get hired as staff without much of any say or any choice. Three times this happened. On each I ended up becoming second to the owner in terms of rank. You might think I'm lucky, but no - this was a serious problem. I'd always turn a game into work. Yeah, I enjoyed staffing quite a lot, and I managed to change a lot of servers for the better in my time with them, but I'd turn my back on my friends and turn what was meant to be fun into a job. It's not my intention to become staff on Eclipse, but I'd hope to get more involved with time.

I'm obviously fairly new to the community, but I'll tell you I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far.

The first I heard of this server was actually in a video by General Sam. He'd coined that Eclipse was the most serious and most difficult to join servers he could find, and he wanted to see just how serious it was. Although initially it was most likely only out of curiosity, it seems that he took a fancy and played for a little while. Though, I'll either assume he lost interest or his actions finally caught up to him.

I've played GTARP on FiveM before, which was great but very quiet and very tiring. I couldn't find the server again, so I thought hell, let's see what Eclipse really is like. A few hours later and hey, I could find out. I'm really enjoying my time so far. I invited along a friend to try it too, one that used to be less familiar with RP, and he's as hooked as I. We're having a great time.

Later, I found that a friend I got to know during my DarkRP days actually plays on this server too, and is quite well accomplished. As far as I'm aware, he eats, shits and sleeps on this server. He's on it all the time. Unfortunately, I've yet to meet his character. But hell, what a coincidence.

 

I think I've droned on enough now. It's been a while since I've joined another community, and I hope it lasts. This one's definitely a lot more complicated and developed than what I'm used to, but I hope that doesn't throw the sense of family askew.

Thanks for reading!
