Due to the GTA III multiplayer modification "Liberty Unleashed" being successfully approved in the Argonath RPG community, and the boards for the server being added here on the Argonath RPG Forums, I have removed most of the off-topic chat and malicious comments from this topic so this can become a general discussion topic. Please feel free to view the history of the discussions dating back several years, and leave a friendly reply to discuss the progress on things now! :)

As a side note, today's date of this posting is Monday, October 3rd, 2011. The Liberty Unleashed server in the Argonath RPG community was officially approved on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011. This topic was originally started on Friday, January 9th, 2009.




Coming Soon To A Community Near You!

It's Argonath RPG's very own Liberty-Unleashed server!

That's right folks! You supported the idea of a GTA III multiplayer roleplaying environment in Argonath RPG for over 2 years and it has now become a reality! Development has begun, and as you all may or may not be able to see yet, things are changing within Argonath to add this great mod to our every-expanding list of fun and awesome servers! I can't reveal much right now, but all I can say is you will absolutely love it! More to come soon, including official announcements on things from the Server Owners and development team! Thank you all for your incredible support! Our dream is finally coming true!




Update: It's here! http://www.argonathrpg.eu/forum/index.php?board=209.0



The following was taken from the original post which has now been "archived" here in order to announce something to succeed it.

Just take a second and imagine this. Ignore all the issues for a second. It's just a simple question... What if Argonath had a GTA 3 RPG server. Would you play it? Would you want it? Would you like it? I'm collecting this information because although this topic is by no means official, some of the players on Argo would like to see it. We know there's other factors involved including money, servers, clients, and many other issues, but this is just a survey in a sense. Let me know what you think! Please answer the questions fully and completely, and don't skip them. Additional comments are welcome, but don't spam or go off-topic please.

My opinion:
If Argonath had a GTA 3 RPG server, I would play it, I would want it, and yes, I would like it...in fact, I'd love it!


Many of us like the idea and have been discussing it. Supporters already include myself, [R*]Ber, =AV=Grzesiek, TupacSforza, [R*]Rusty, Heat, [AV]Watahell, Asspunk1994, [R*]Dexter, McLane, [WS]BlackEagle, [AV]Dave, Janicch_Burrows, Mario_Rinarri, =AV=Bounce, Team-Evilrex, TeaM-R@DAR, LinkSforza, [R*]Lionz, TeaM-Snake, TeaM-MIB, DiheSforza, TeaM-Jingle, TeaM-Elite, McCarthy, [AV]Curse, Driggz, [R*]Tai and many, many more. Come on guys, if we get enough support, maybe, just maybe, it'll happen...

***NOTE: Share the topic and spread it around! We need alot of support to have any chance at this!***

I like GTA3 because it has a nice criminal atmosphere. No any mod can return the feeling of this classic. Even though it has simple graphics and not many functions (not even crouching).

Play for fun and friendship, not for stats or achievements.
If you do not want to roleplay, log off. Remember that "do not force RP" does NOT mean you can refuse to interact with other players.

I like GTA 3 but the problem is that its not possible to make GTA:3 using MTA 0.5 because only one area can be used in it. This is a MTA 0.5 weird limitation. But soon (i hope so) liberty unleashed would be released (http://liberty-unleashed.co.uk) and it could be more better than MTA.

Dihe, not only is it possible, but a limitation to just one area can be removed in other ways, not to mention multiple hosts or alternating maps can be added if necessary. Many servers have done it for years, so there's no reason why we can't get away with it too. :)
Very worst case we stick with one part of the city until a newer client is released.

As for Liberty City Unleashed, I too was checking that out today and it could be yet another opportunity for us as well to use. Keep in mind that I doubt the admins would up and say that they are immediately setting up a server, and even if they did, we still have options until we can get something better.

Sticking to one Area of LC it'd have to be Staunton or Portland. IMO Shoreside Vale it too small.

If we'd have to choose, I'd have to agree with you on that. I'd prefer Staunton because of the businesses, casinos, police stations, etc., but then again Portland is nice too...

I Agree with the idea.

Liberty city is a nice city to RP.
Not sure, but I think 'Portland' and 'Stauton Island' maps only have one skin avaible, unlike 'Shoriside' that has Cop, gang guy and two mafias.

That's a thing to be choosen, because run three servers, one for each map is nearly impossible and out of question on RPG gamemode.

I good factor is that all (most of them) general scripts from MTA:VC could be imported to MTA:3, even 90% of cop system could be imported as it's same scripting syntax from MTA:VC.

So yeah, we could import the most needed scripts and run it, then develop lilttle by little...

MTA:VC, the real meaning of fun

I can't see nothing better than RPing around while listening to Flashback 95.6 FM

The actuall city has a great feeling, I feel RP would be great on GTA3, also, about the Island thing, Maybe it would be sensible to wait for Libery Unleashed?

Agreed, unless the guys here want to try make our own multiplayer mod for GTA 3
My loyalties do not lie with the server, players or game, no. They lie with the two (three? waitno. Four!) men who built and sustain this community, for without them, there is no Argonath RPG.
