    [RELEASE]
    The old thread got closed due to the post limit, so here's a new one with a bit more information.

    The official beta testing has started. If you want to participate, join the aftermath steam community group and read the "Download" part in this post!

    Steam Community Group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gmaftermath

    Servers



    If you play for the first time, I recommend you join server #1 (The one running gm_atomic)

    Media



    Download
    There's no download for the whole gamemode yet, since it's not done yet.
    You can, however, download the content that you need to play on the servers:
    Link to svn repository: http://aftermath-rpg.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
    There are plenty of tutorials on how to use svn. I recommend using TortoiseSVN as client.
    You'll have to do the checkout on your main garrysmod directory ("../Steam/SteamApps/yoursteamname/garrysmod/garrysmod/")
    TortoiseSVN, as well as some other clients, will try to create a subdirectory called "aftermath-rpg" for the svn. Make sure this does not happen:

    (Remove that part from the path)

    Once you've made sure of that, there shouldn't be any problems. You're good to go when it has finished downloading the files.
    The size of the svn is about 3.1GB, so make sure you have enough space for that.


    Gameplay
    The gameplay is simple. You can gain new perks and skills by leveling up. Experience is gained by killing enemies, doing quests and some other things.
    You can find companions, fight boss enemies, start fights with other players or explore the wasteland and find hidden caches.
    Any progress you're making is saved periodically on the server. You can leave at any time and your characters will be exactly as you've left him when you rejoin. You can have a total amount of 3 different characters.
    You can also travel between servers and keep your stats by using the transition points you can find on the map.

    FAQ
    Q: Is there an estimated release date?
    When it's done. Not sure if that will ever happen.

    Q: What maps will be used?
    For now there's only support for gm_atomic and aftm_apocalypse_a1 (A modified version of rp_apocalypse).

    Q: Will the weapons and SNPCs be released seperately from the gamemode?
    No, most likely not. The weapons wouldn't be useable in any other gamemode anyway.

    Q: Is it a third-person or first-person gamemode?
    Both, you can switch between first-person and third-person just like in Fallout 3/Oblivion. (By using the scroll wheel)

    Q: What games is this gamemode influenced by?
    Mostly by Fallout 3 / New Vegas, however there are some elements from other games like Oblivion, Skyrim, Mass Effect, Dark Messiah and Sin Episodes: Emergency

    Not to be a dick or anything but I actually looked at your weapon system from .dua files, and I actually managed to reverse engineer it and build my own system (From scratch) based on it, it works very similarly to yours.

    Keep up the fantastic work, I'll be looking forward to this.

    aftermath

    the perfect gamemode that never got the attention it deserved
    To be fair, it's a large download. When I tried it a few months ago (when the gm_atomic map was still used) I found very little to do. It was grinding upon grinding with nothing else. I'm sure it's grown since then, but it's the reason I didn't play as much as I wish I had. The gamemode is amazing in terms of functionality, but what I feel it really lacks is meat. Quests, factions, things that can make it much better in terms of replayability. It feels very much like Underdone in the regard that it's fun until a certain point. I love Aftermath, but there just needs to be more sustenance.

    it's not that they aren't interested it's the amount of content, it really is worth it to download it but your average person will shrug it off at the 3Gig content

    ? there is snpcs for sandbox?

    I can't connect or favourite any of the servers. I've tried it with and without the port included several times and it didn't work. Am I doing anything wrong or are the servers down?

    EDIT: I just joined the Steam group. Was there a whitelist?

    The servers are messed up. First when you joined nothing happens or shows up. You're stuck on a screen showing brahmin or the church. And now they are down or something, wont let me join.

    It's on my favourites list... but the "connect" option is blacked/greyed out so I can't connect.

    It looks so amazing, I just want to play!

    EDIT: I can connect now. nevermind.

    Double edit: I can't get into the server! When I first tried it said "Missing map: gm_atomic, so I downloaded the map, but now it says "you are missing the materials required to play this gamemode." and disconnects me. Can't you just make people download all this stuff when they join the server, like every other server in existence?

    Downloading all the files through the server would take ages and doesn't REALLY work properly. It's not rocket science, svn checkout, get map, play game. Make sure you checkout in the right folder.

    If you can't install it you are really stupid

    You just download the svn and put the folders from the svn into your root gmod folder

    This is a simpler way if you don't understand the picture.

    >Copy SVN link
    >Make new folder on your desktop, label it whatever you want, for me I labeled it "Aftermath"
    >Right click on the folder and select "SVN Checkout" and let the window pop up
    >Follow the image of the OP on where to place the checkout link.
    >Let the SVN download all the necessary files
    >Open the folder when done, it will have the folders "Addons" "Lua" "Particles" "Gamemodes" and such.
    >Take all of the folders and copy + paste them into garrysmod/garrysmod
    >Let the files overwrite any things if necessary.
    >Join the server

    And if you want to get rid of the little notice of "SVN Version was been updated, update your SVN's" then update your folder on the desktop and navigate to lua > autorun > client and copy the file cl_svnversioncheck.lua and place it into garrysmod/garrysmod/lua/autorun/client/ and it should get rid of the notice once you rejoin. Usually Silverlan updates quite often with small patches in content, if you just want to continue playing without the notice and will patch it later, just follow those instructions.

    Alternatively, just add someone who has the content working via steam and ask them for live help.
