Suggestion for SeriousRP-Newspaper Article

Post by TheGreen on Thu Jun 24, 2010 10:42 pm

I use to make a newspaper article for TnB when it used Serious 1942Rp's map. I wondering if we could make a newspaper that has also propaganda for the Nazis, and an underground newspaper for those who want to hear what REALLY is happening?
All we have to do is a newspaper script where Store owners can sell them, they pull up a menu/pop up, and they get to read the current issue any day, until a new issue is sent out. The problem is, I will be the only one who is doing this idea ATM, so I will need volunteers for such a project.

So if does go through and Admin allows it, I will make a list somewhere in one piece of the forum, unless He makes a section for this. I will require applications for this, and I already have a few I am willing to ask if they wish to help me.

Thank you for reading and understanding my thread and question. I hope this goes through.

-Lieutenant Green


Supreme Editor-Lieutenant Green

Nazi Newspaper-Drooplingpacman

British/Russian Newspaper-Somebody(Leader) and Bourne(Co-Leader)

Resistance Newspaper-Bourne(Leader) and Somebody(Co-Leader)

Also, if Skeeve or Lee wish to help, I may let Bourne and Somebody get some slack as well, or we can add a Civilian made newspaper, legal to both Nazis and Resistance.

Depends how Devan wants it. Maybe store owners can even sell them, but it will be illegal and "under the table." Of course, I think we will make it if allowed that we could make resistance just buy it period out of busniess maybe..But will cost x2 as much from store owners. Probably wouldn't matter, since it will price from five to ten reichmarks anyway.

EDIT- Also if Devan allowed it, Just a heads up, Borneo and Droopling (Droopy to me only) we be assistant/co editors. I will probably have it so Droopling has Nazi side of it, if he wants to do it at all, and Bourneo will cover the Underground newspaper.
I will cover both sides, add my own pieces into it, maybe even make the Illegal for Sure papers like back in the days: British and Russian newspapers.
For now, for sure, if allowed, we will mainly only do it inside the forums, but once the scripts get done, we will probably make a newspaper script for everyone...Of course, will cost money to buy in game.

Maybe one every one or two weeks. If we are behind, then 3 weeks at the most.
Or, we be realistic, and that if there is no real news going around, there will be no new articles until a event/something happened.

This will include things happening in the city only or outside events?

We will cover both sides in all newspapers. It will show key events happening during the time of the war (RL wise), In Game events(Execution of five armed citizens today in Palaza!), and just regular unimportant meanings (Bakery opened! People rush to have new bread!)

Just updated: The newspaper project will go through. If it turns out good, we will keep the idea. Once the update is done, We need a scripter/coder if Devan did not do it, to make the article seperaters, details, maybe even the looks. The Article Team will handle the rest.

I highly support the addition of a quality newspaper into the gameworld. I've worked with one in the past, and it was good times for everyone.

I'd recommend only presenting the Government newspaper at first, to get people used to the content, before dropping in the Underground content. It'll give people time to make judgement on the quality of newspaper and its standard presentation, then the underground paper can be fed in more quietly, as it would do realistically.

As far as presentation, be sure to post the papers on the forums as well, to allow people to get a chance to read them without spending their precious RP time.

As far as content, you only need about a page or so a week, which can include articles for both in-server events and real-world happenings during the same time period.

The underground paper should be presented more frequently than once a month, as it'll help keep people attached to the gameplay. There can be multiple formats, English and Russian formats, presented for different weeks; this should help give the impression that it's a smuggled paper, without a consistent source.

Agreed. Thank god someone was thinking the same way I was on Underground newspapers, but we need to add UK,Poland, France, and even a hint of my own country into it as well.-MEANING: Spain was also under "occupation" by facist general, Forgot-his-name, and was also helping the nazis during the war.
