Hello there Admins, mods and the community of cvgaming
As most of you have noticed cvgaming is dead on Arma 3. There are many factors that played into this. And I am going to point out some of the reasons. This is strictly my opinion so if you the community do not agree with this please reply so the mods and admins could see what you want to add/change on the server. And to the mods and admins please take this ideas to consideration because this might help out the server a bit. (I know that this might be a bit repetitive but i just had to say something. Since i love cvgaming all too much)
Reasons and Solutions:
Starting money: Before we started with 250k I do think that is reasonable but i do think we should start off with a bit more. Solution: Start with 350k,450k,500k. When people start off they want to buy a truck, weapons for protection and some awesome clothes. So to have more money to spend would be awesome.
The map issue: the community tired of the same old Altis they wanted something new and interesting. So the admins decided to change the map to Tano. And as we can see today the community did not agree with this change. Solution: I do not think the map was ever the issue. I think that the admins and mods did not bring new things to the server that often. And that is why Altis got stale.
Not enough customization for civs: we the civs did not have that much customization in the clothes area. We had some but most of the clothes made us look like hobos and geezers. Solution: The admins could add some more normal looking clothes to the normal clothing store. And to the hideouts there could be military, mafia and or gangster clothes. But if the admins feel like that this isn't the way they should implement the clothes. There is an another way to implement the clothes. The UFA could sell some military clothes. This would make it so that players could look different.
Guns and Vests: When players got bored of farming they wanted to engage in combat with other players. But the issue was that the only way to get a 6.5 mm was through killing officers or buy from the UFA. And to buy it off the UFA you had to have the “week pass”. That got really expensive for players on the server. For an player that played often on the server that wasn't an issue. But for casuals that didn't play that often that would be an issue. Of course they could buy 5.56 weapons but they would be at a huge disadvantage. Solution: Players could have a larger selection of 5.56, 9mm weapons. Or players could buy themselves a 6.5 mm. I do also feel like an armor level 2 vest should be able to buy at a gang hideout.
Choppers: I feel like the choppers on cvgaming were too expensive. 1.3 million for a hummingbird Is all too much. “I know the argument that people would only fly when they farm” but if only the hummingbirds were cheap it wouldnt have been worth it to farm (because the trunk can't fit that much in it).The hummingbird makes it faster and more effective to move around the map. And to also make it cheaper would help out the new players on cvgaming. Solution: Make ONLY the hummingbird cheap. Make the price 300k (Reasoning is since the old cvgaming had the price at 300k)
Farming: On cvgaming and life mod in general is farming a key factor into the server experience. But on cvgaming i feel like there either wasn't enough things to farm or the prices would be bad. Solution: Higher the prices on for example iron, apples, copper and so on.
Gangs: To make a gang on cvgaming It costs 75k this is expensive in my opinion for (starting players). There can't be more than one admin/mod in the gang. Solutions: The price to make a gang should be 25k. I think there should more role slots in the gang like mods that could invite people. I also think we should be able to name the roles.
Gang Hideouts: When you have captured a gang hideout there is a notification that you have captured it. That will alert players to come to you and even perhaps kill you. I think that you should be awarded to own the ganghideout. Solution/Change: Every five minutes you usually get 1050 dollars. But when you have control of the gang hideout you should get 2050 dollars.
Weekly event: I loved the weekly events but the most popular one was the purge. Change/ Solution: So I feel like there should be a purge every Friday. And a different events on Saturday and Sunday to make people look forward to the weekend. ( Idea for an event: double the amount of money from farming for a day) I would name this the “weekendly event”
And that was all of my ideas. I will be reading the comments section to see your guyses suggestions And to all of you mods and admins out there please do not take this the wrong way these are just ideas that you can take to consideration. ( I do hope that you will implement some if not all of them) The best of luck to you admins and mods
With best regards John Smith
