Hello, I'm taking a community survey to see what people want focused developed in the TTT server right now. I feel like this would optimially tell Danny what people really care for the most in the community or want as of now.

1. Content Updates (New added content to the server. Weapons, Maps, Bonus Round Gamemodes, Etc.)
2. Bug Fixes (Self-Explanatory)
3. Quality of life changes (Changes to traitor/detective items with added effects. Added passive effects.)
4. Weapon Re-Vamp (Mainly a ton of weapons, add more variety then a scout/deagle meta.)
5. New Pointshop Items (Because of how massive this request is, this gets its own category.)

The poll is above, I will be DM'ing this to everyone I know so we can get accurate results. I feel the server is stagnating and that's the reason not as much people have as much motivation to get on the server, focusing on the content being asked would motivate more people to join the server, along with updating said content a name change to server could also be applicable to draw new people in for instance.

If weapon-revamp is voted for and we do a community weapon re-vamp the server name could change to such.

Current : Carbon Castles TTT | Fast Downloads | Staff Needed

Changed: Carbon Castles TTT | WEAPON RE-VAMP | Staff Needed

This could be applicable to any content change in the server, every server promotes fast-download, because every server has it, advertise something fresh, new, something to draw and entice new players or possibly regulars to the server.

Whatever get's voted on we can create another thread on such that will propose more suggestions towards voted content allowing the community as a whole to choose how they want the server AND community to be pushed to be more successful. #TTT-Suggestions is great, but it's more for smaller and quick "could be added" suggestions. Threads enable community opinion without it being lost in the other crowd of thought for said suggestion.

Serious reply's on your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

QUICK EDIT: When I said weapon re-vamp I do NOT mean to nerf scout and deagle, they are FINE.

1. Content Updates (New added content to the server. Weapons, Maps, Bonus Round Gamemodes, Etc.)
----------------------
This has been asked for a lot recently. Removing the maps that kill the server, adding new maps (i.e. Minecraft maps) while vaulting older ones that don't get played. This was going to be my 2nd vote if we had multiple votes cause I think this has a great chance of potentially fixing the population issue.

2. Bug Fixes (Self-Explanatory)
----------------------
If I am gonna be honest, bug fixes should not have to be asked for. They should be done habitually and could be considered to be beneficial towards a Quality of Life update.

3. Quality of life changes (Changes to traitor/detective items with added effects. Added passive effects.)
---------------------

Add more T/D items if anything. There are more beneficial things to prioritize like 1 and 4, so I would not personally prioritize it.

4. Weapon Re-Vamp (Mainly a ton of weapons, add more variety than a scout/Deagle meta.)
----------------------
This is what I voted for, and I personally think an entire weapon re-vamp would be such a good thing for the server. The fact that the Deagle out-performs almost every assault rifle when it comes to accuracy, it is kinda broken. If we could get a meta change, it would be such a weirdly good thing to experience since we have been running the Scout/Deagle meta for so long.

5. New Pointshop Items (Because of how massive this request is, this gets its own category.)
---------------------------
There are already a good amount of Pointshop items on the server, in my opinion. If newer Pointshop items get added, maybe vault some of the older items. I can see this being used as a limited time crate opportunity for special skins, player models, etc. Again, this would be like Quality of Life changes. There are better things to prioritize to help the server.

I'd definitely like to see changes in a few areas:

1. Weapons (almost across the board) feel clunky and weird. I understand this was likely done because this isnt a super competitive FPS, but it really detracts from the experience IMO. ROF and Accuracy should be boosted on pretty much all guns. I'd rather have to land more hits than needing to worry about RNG accuracy and being unable to hit shots to balance what the original goal (im assuming) was.

2. Better transparency of process. I see you use Trello so I propose;
  • An open community Trello board where people can post any suggestion that want which can be considered the 'single source of truth' where the community can put their suggestions without needing to worry about it not being seen/lost in scrollback. It would also look a bit nicer than a discord channel since people post in it and it becomes hard to read.
    • This would need to ACTUALLY be regularly reviewed and moderated.
  • A public Trello board where (Danny and/or staff) move suggestions and rank them based on priority, so it's clear;
    • What is being worked on
    • When it will be worked on
    • Some kind of delineation between "Community picks" and "Danny/Staff picks" -- maybe aim for (minimum) 33% of project work being from community suggestions

I really like the idea of the Trello boards because it allows for us to see, very clear, what the roadmap is and allows people to see if their ideas are being listened to. One problem with Trello though is that I don't think you can post comments on why something is rejected (I.E. against roadmap, too unreasonable, bad ideas, etc). I think this will help strike a balance of making it clear "here's what I'm working on and this is why I'm not working on your thing". This also allows for discussion if the community or staff think priorities need to change. As a secondary suggestion, since Trello has a lot of limitations you may also want to consider using a Github page instead. It has the same concept of Project/Kabana boards, but also allows for additional things such as submitting issues, commenting, etc. It's also free and pretty easy to use.

I'm all down for some new content. The server has very little maps that we play constantly. And other maps that downright kill the server on the daily. (Like ttt_untextured)
Better weapons should be included so there's more variety then a simple deag and scout. There needs to be a meta change so new players who don't have the skill, also get some cheeky kills and have a better chance. Balance of some guns here and there and popular maps that'll bring people in, that's what I think

I agree with everyone on the weapons. I've always enjoyed the guns on different servers more than CC's and this is mainly to do with the Sniper/Deag combo; Yes it is fun to use but it gets rather stale if everyone is doing the deag/sniper meta and so because of this I've found myself going to servers who experiment with the weapons, add new weapons, and try out new values on them, even if it means it might break a weapon temporarily because this allows the server staff to see what works with the server and what doesn't. This allows many weapons on these servers to become viable and in some cases more powerful than the deag/sniper combo.

as I write this I also realized I feel the same towards special rounds, as these other servers also experiment with power rounds and some of them are genuinely fun and a great way to break up the same gameplay and make TTT interesting.

I hear you guys, on these suggestions. But I need more descriptive suggestions. What guns are a problem? Why do they feel clunky? What guns specifically need to be improved?
What new power-rounds would you suggest?
Like, not to sound like an asshole but I can't see "Add more powerrounds" and magically come up with 15 new power rounds I need suggestions lol. <3

I will compile a list of my suggestions for weapons as well as doing some testing and come out with a list tomorrow or the day after.

Same for power rounds.

My goal is to compile a list of all round new things that could be added. The maps list for new stuff is being added.

But today I will start working on my weapon testing.

Alright I've got two power round suggestions for you.

One being a FFA round where everyone starts with a newton launcher and 40 hp, and either try knock each other off or kill each other via damage with the newton.
Another being a sort of infection type game mode where one person who is randomly selected is chosen as the first infected and must infect other people. he can start off with a gun or harpoon and once he gets a kill he can be downgraded to a knife.
The infection type pr is very popular on different servers and I feel like it would be popular here too.

One weapon suggestion I'd really like to push is improving the CZ because as of right now its painfully slow to shoot and even slower to draw; Slower to draw than all the other primaries and secondaries I've tested last night (this being the MP7/HK/M4/Glock/CZ) which makes it a terrible choice for use as a secondary as most can outperform it with no benefits of its own.

Starting this off I will say that this is my opinion and probably doesn't weigh a whole lot considering I don't play as much anymore.

The first and major thing that comes to mind with where the most focus should be put right now is weapon balance. The weapons have been nerf'd into the ground with no real compensation causing most guns to be either incrediblely inaccurate or marshmello shooters. The side affect of this is the "scout/deagle" meta that everyone complains about. While I personally enjoy the scout deagle no matter what and will play them always the weapon balance has caused other players to either complain about those who do use the scout/deagle or start using them themselves. Scout/deagle is a "skill" based load out and rewards you for accuracy and punishes you for not hitting headshots. The way the other guns are balanced the scout deagle has no counter. The m4/m16's cone of accuracy is terrible at anything anything moderately close and other guns do so little damage that this allows even sloppy deagle scout players more follow up shots that what would normally happen. The "scout/deagle" meta is really the only thing that can consistantly get a t kills reliably without causing to much attention while at the same time being the best counter for an inno/d at the same time.  I feel a total revamp is needed to get the server back to where it needs to be for players to enjoy this server again. The csgo weapon models are cool and the skins are nice but when the gun feels like you brought a knife to a gun fight you don't really want to play them. I say the guns across the board need an accuracy buff, excluding the scout. After that I feel like the damage should be adjusted accordingly to the type of gun. Shot guns get a lot of spread, high damage, low pelet count, high recoil. The ar's get good rates of fire, good accuracy, good damage but a lot of recoil. These kind of things.

As for other things that I feel need to be addressed are not necessarilly the servers fault but more of gmod but I still feel like they need to be addressed. Crouch spamming is still a thing and the cool down that was brought in I feel isnt enough. You can just time it now with your strafes to where you get the same effects as before the cool down and it really defeats the point of having the cool down. People abusing the !3p command seems to becoming more popular so i feel putting a cool down on that or only allowing the command in post or preround or it not effecting the players crosshair so they can't see names around corners could help. 

The last thing I feel like is something that needs to be addressed is the maps. Obviously more popular maps should be added and the less popurlar ones here should be removed. Also I feel like removing a lot of the fun easter eggs on some of the maps has caused a lot of the casual player base to become bored during rounds since they really have nothing to do other than wait to get shot at. Some where over powered yes but they were so fun when they did happen that it made a lot of inno rounds worth playing for people. The ones that I'd like to see back are the light sabers on casino and the ax on rooftops. They were on shots but they took time to get and never really caused rounds to go completely off the rails. 

These are all the things I could think of in the 20mins or so of writing this. The biggest thing I feel is the gun balancing. If that were fixed I feel a lot of people would definitely start enjoying the game again.
