Rube Goldberg Device Challenge

It's time for another challenge, folks! This time your goal is to create a Rube Goldberg Device, which is, in a nutshell, a device designed to be as complex as possible that does, in many cases, only does one simple task.

If you need any inspiration, just watch this video to get an idea what you can do:

Well, what are you waiting for? Get going now!

AssassinYet another gamemode made using The Simple Game Base (which, by the way, has been recently updated with admin menus and some handy new console commands).

Assassin is proof of concept that you can make a gamemode that uses roleplay aspects yet has common goals that make it an actual game. In roleplay there are no rules governing the gameplay, so as a result you have players running around killing eachother and being faggots in general. In many roleplay servers, you will find people pretending to be hitmen and police men.

So i decided i'd replicate the 'hitman' theme, but i added some realistic constraints and goals. Since nobody likes walls of text, here's the ingame help menu, which is pretty much explains the gameplay in the shortest amount of words.

A lot of gameplay is based on stealth. If you draw a weapon in public then players will panic and will be able to call the police, and you will probably end up getting chased down by the cops. If you assassinate someone discreetly, then you will have an easier time escaping. The assassin has tools at his disposal to remain stealthy, including a silenced pistol, a sniper rifle, and flashbangs. Each weapon has its own advantages and uses.

Here are a few more screenshots of the gameplay.

- Welding yourself to props
- Welding props to yourself

If you become part of a community for X type server its really not that bad.
I tend to hang around with a role-play community so, just from the fact that its role-play, means we don't get whiny little kids mic'ing all the time.

But overall, if theres more than two whiny brats on a server and they have mics, it is so much fun to intimidate them for not shutting the f*ck up :D
