Advanced Duplicator 2
The Andvacned Duplicator duplicates one or more props and they can be pasted anywhere you want.
There is only one issue: a bunch of props wont be ghosted when you have got the tool in your hand, one of them is the "Storefront_Template001a_Bars".
With that tool you can dupe your building (more props) and save it too. I made a video for this:

Button
This tool simulates a key of your keyboard/mouse. That basicly means when you press "e" on the button ingame it will press the key that had been set by the owner of the button.
Example: player "x" placed a button that simulates the key "T", the key "T" opens a fading door. Player "y" pressed the button and the fading door got opened.
-Left click to place a button
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]

Enable Collison
This tool enables and disabled the collision of a prop. That means when the collision is diabled props/you/bodys can just go through the prop.
-Enable collison with a left click
-Disable collision with a right click

Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Fading door
This tool creates a fading door on any prop. The fading door let the prop disappear when you press the key you've set, its like a door.
-Left click to createa fading door on a prop
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Keypad
The keypad is like a button only with a code, when you want to open for example the fading door, you have to enter the code first.
-Left click to place a keypad

Light
Spawns a light bulb that makes light in a setted radius.

Hi there!

So, some of you may not know who i am, my name is Gems and i have been a staff member on zarp for about 9 months at this point, so i would say that i have a decent amount of experience. Im making this "guide" because i have seen alot of staff members out there, simply showing up to an F1, asking for evidence and if there is none they will simply move on. If you think this is all you can do, then you are wrong! So today i will try to teach you some of the tricks i use, to get a player to admit to
whatever he may have done.

I do realise that this guide may sort of work as a double-edged sword, since a player looking to break the rules could use this knowledge to their advantage, but then again, most of the people who are active on the forums cares about the server and wouldnt break any rules. Lets get started!

Step 1: Approaching the request
It is extremely important that you give a good first impression to the player once you show up for his request, make sure he isnt busy by teleporting to him first, or using spectate if you have reached admin. Sending him a message asking if he has a moment and waiting for him to reply is always a good idea, it means alot to the player, since that way he wont be confused and unaware about whats going on.

Step 2: Hearing him out
At first, if the person is frustrated it is important that you calm him down, tell him you will sort things out, try to make him laugh if possible, dont get mad at him for being mad, it will only make things worse and even if you dont agree with his point of view, tell him that you understand why hes frustrated, it will make him trust you.

Next up it is extremely important that you have him explain what happended in details, you need to understand what happended and if you dont get it the first time make sure you ask again, it is so important that you understand what went on.
alot of F1s will actually be solved at this point, since you will realise that the situation he is describing does not actually contain a rulebreak, in that case simply explain to him why and how it isnt againts the rules.

Step 3: Approaching the rulebreaker.

player y = victim, player x = potential rulebreaker

Now comes the hard part, by overlooking player y's explanation, and reading the logs you will 99 percent of the time be able to create a raw picture of what happened, example:

player y explains how player x broke nlr, to raid his base at the warehouse district on server 1. You check the logs and find player x dying to player y 5 times, before finally killing him, all within 3 minutes.

Now taking the amount of time it would take player x to run back to the warehouse district, which is rather far from spawn we could assume that player y is telling the truth and at the least 90 percent of the times we would be correct.

Another example:

Player y accuses player x of rdming him, you check the logs and see that player x has killed player y once, however you have rarely or never seen player y on the server, he is playing as a black market dealer and he overall seems inexperienced.

In this scenario we cant assume anything, i would give player y about a 40% chance of being right.

Now keep in mind that a high percentage is far from enough, you need to be 100 percent sure. But it will help us on how to approach the rulebreaker.

Once you as a staff member have created your picture of the situation it is time to bring the rulebreaker in, you approach just like you would approach the victim, shown above. It is just as important that you get his whole story aswell, it may be completely diffrent from the first one, but mostly it will be around the same, with a few tweaks, make sure you ask in alot and that you take notes of how easily and quickly he is responding, if he is lying he will have trouble making up the story, and he might slip, but if hes telling the truth he wont have any troubles answering any of your questions. Make sure you never reveal what is in your logs to the players, since that is an easy way to catch them lying.

At this point the majority of the rulebreaks will be solved, but if you are still not sure, you can use some of these methods:

Method 1: Point things out
It is highly likely that you have noticed some things or flaws that seemed suspicious during the above points, reveal them all to him in a very dominant manner, make it sound like you really are on to him, if the victim has broken the rule he will often become scared enough to just admit to what hes done at this point, thinking hes really made you mad.

Method 2: Baiting / Threatening
This one is simple, just remind him of the punishments that are for said rulebreak, tell him that rdming someone is bad, but lying about it could get him worse, alot of rulebreakers will crack using this, thinking the risk isnt worth the reward.

Method 3: Lying (Careful!)
Now ofcourse being honest is extremely important as a staff member, but there are certain situations where a white lie can be useful. For this method you simply tell the victim to let you do the talking before you teleport the rulebreaker, you can then later confront the rulebreaker saying that you have evidence of the rulebreak, even though you dont! Next off the rulebreaker will do one of two things; Admit to everything, or start screaming abuse! Because of this you wanna be quite sure about your case before using this method. You can push it as far as you want, but make sure that an innocent user knows that you where lying by the end of the F1.

Using the information above i am able to handle at the least 95% Of all F1s without evidence. Assuming the accused is not afk.

Make sure you always seem neutral and respectful as a startout, but faking temper can without a doubt be helpful, aswell as being friendly and understanding. Just make sure you always use common sense and that you back out if you start feeling like the accused really is innocent.

It is highly likely that i have left something out, or made a bunch of typos, feel free to correct me on those and if you have any questions please let me know! If any staff members have tricks that weren't shown here, then write them in below! If you have any criticism or if you would just like to tell me that im an idiot then go ahead, but make sure you bring arguments.

Thanks for reading my short guide!

General Guide on Reporting Staff/Players & Evidence
Hello. I've decided to create this guide to aid players and staff members alike on gathering evidence for abuse reports on either players or staff members, how to report them and some general tips. This is moreso intended towards new members of the community, or the ones which are having trouble with reporting players & making abuse reports, but I hope it can help anyone interested.


This guide will cover up the following aspects:
  • Submitting abuse reports
  • What is and what is not valid evidence
  • Ways of gathering evidence
  • General tips and tricks


Without any further ado, let's begin!

Part 1: Submitting abuse reports

We all have issues from time with time with certain people breaking the rules or staff members acting the way they shouldn't. The Report Abuse section found here was created just for that.
To report a certain staff member, you will need to follow the demote request template or if you'd wish to report a certain user, you will need to follow the ban request template. Within a short amount of time your request will be answered by the staff capable to handle it.

Keep in mind, you can also report a player, less formally, within the game using the F1 function.
Make sure to describe your problem and wait patiently for a staff member.

Making a post in the right section
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]

Part 2: What is and what is not valid evidence

Evidence of SteamID
Of course, we as staff members wouldn't punish a person without any evidence of that person's SteamID, so that we would know that the right person gets punished. Besides the SteamID which you will need to provide within the request, you will also need to provide evidence of the accused player's ID. The best way to do this is take a recording of said rulebreak, and then record the player's identity within the TAB menu, but anything else such as a correctly done screenshot will also do the trick!

Example of correct evidence (from Stooki's report)
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Evidence of accused rulebreak
Fair enough, you want to get someone punished, but once again, for the right person to be punished, solid evidence must be provided. I personally recommend video recordings, but for certain rulebreaks, screenshots also do the trick.

Screenshots can be valid in certain cases such as:
  • Disrespect
  • Metagaming
  • Propblock
  • Illegal bases
  • Big gun as shop owner/citizen/etc.
  • Numerous other cases such as racism or roleplaying with distasteful remarks.
(Remeber that these are not all the cases in which screenshots can be valid evidence, but I'd say thinking twice on what could be solid evidence before submitting a report)

Screenshots can not be valid evidence (exceptions apply) in cases such as:
  • FDA (fading door abuse)
  • Disrespect/Racism involving Microphone
  • NLR
  • RDM
  • RDA
  • Rebuilding/Repasting during a raid
In the cases mentioned above or in similar ones, your best bet is to give solid proof, for example a recording would be your best bet.

Part 3: Ways of gathering evidence

After all, it all comes down to evidence. I can assure you that, if enough proof is provided, the guilty party should recieve a proper punishment within a short amount of time.

These are the most common ways in which you can gather evidence:
  • Taking screenshots within the game, and uploading them
  • Recording your entire gameplay/the most important part and uploading a video
  • Demos (This part will be discussed the less, as it is more advanced and we usually don't use demos)

Taking screenshots
Whilst in-game, you can press the F5 or F12 button (most common ones) to take a screenshot of your current game. This could provide you with quick and easy evidence in certain cases.

Uploading a screenshot after it has been taken

Open up the steam overlay (shift+tab) and go to the screenshots tab.
From there you press view screenshots, and upload the image you wish.
After the upload is done, press "view online" and a webpage should pop up. Give the link to a staff member as evidence.
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Recording your gameplay.

This is the option of gathering evidence I'd suggest you use. Sure, it isn't as easy as taking a screenshot, but it will get the job done really good.

There are numerous software you can use, which will be provided at the end of this guide, but my personal pick for this is OBS because it is a lightweight program, free and relativley easy to use.

Setting up OBS:
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


If you prefer other software, here are also some some good software you could use to get the job done, but you'll have to find out how to set them up yourself:
Fraps
Shadowplay (GeForce GPU's)
LoiLo
Raptr (AMD counterpart of Shadowplay)

Part 4: General Tips and Tricks

This part is the last part, marking the ending of this guide. This part will be rather short. I'll be covering a few tips and tricks which might be helpful when reporting a person.

Rebinding the F1 Key
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Make sure to have the proof ready!
Not really mandatory, but it's recommended that you have the proof ready when submitting a report or an admin request. This will save us time, and we wouldn't be needed to wait until the video is uploading or processing.

Don't be afraid to ask!
If you see a member of the community recording his gameplay and you're unsure how he does it, don't be shy, feel free to ask him what software he uses and how to use it! I'm sure that most community members will help you!

Describe your problem!
Whenever you're reporting someone in-game make sure to type in the problem. A brief phrase such as "I have just been RDMed at spawn" is enough. Don't make F1's saying "Admin to me". This will save us both time and is a way of solving problems properly.
Epilogue
This is the guide in it's somewhat finished state. Don't forget to leave feedback and anything that could help improve it, and link it towards anyone which you'd think could be helped by this guide.
Thanks for reading, have fun and play fair!

Damage Shield
Along with the new update, new gang upgrades came with! One of these, being one of the most attractive upgrades to purchase was the Damage Shield 1, 2, and 3.

I've tested out explosives on props, and have found out how it works. Once your purchase the first level Damage Shield Upgrade, your props will go through a stage of defense. You can tell how much "Health" your prop has by the color of it. Here's how the colors work.

It goes Blue,Orange,Red,Black

First Stage
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Second Stage
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Third Stage
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Final Stage [DESTROYED]
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]

The second and third stage of this upgrade only change how long it takes to change colors of the prop, increasing its life span.

The truth is I made this a month or two back and I completly forgot to upload it! so here it is, enjoy, you can calculate how much time it will take you to make profit and I've added a sets sections which you can see common sets profit.





Common Sets Information:
Full Set: 1X Nuclear, 2X Gold, 2X Ruby, 2X Silver, 1X Sapphire, 1X Emerald, 1X Amethyst, 1X Topaz.

High Set: 1X Nuclear, 2X Gold, 1x Sapphire.

Normal Set: 1X Nuclear, 2X Gold, 2X Ruby, 1X Sapphire.

High Set+: 1X Boosted Nuclear, 2X Gold, 1X Sapphire.

Normal Set+: 1X Boosted Nuclear, 2X Gold, 2X Ruby, 1X Sapphire.

High Set++: 1X Boosted Nuclear, 2X Boosted Gold, 1X Boosted Sapphire.




Following What has been shown, it seems as the Full Set is the most profitable and most smart one to buy. Considering you plan to stay on the server for more than 4 hours the High Set++ is the best one for you.

    Recommended Staff Keybindings:

    As a staff member it is always good to have your commands bound into your keyboard keys. this section will show you how to bind your commands with a recommended key to use. Note! if you think you will accidentally press these buttons while role-playing do not bind them for your own safety.

    First off, to bind a chat command to a key you will have to type the following code in Garry'smod Console. (Press '~' in-game to enter console mode).
    Bind '[Key_Name]' "say [Command]
    For Example:
    Bind 'B' "say /tp"

    I personally recommend placing your key bindings on the numpad area, The numpad area is a place which is used only for fading doors in game and has the ability to be locked/inaccessible by pressing 'Num_Lock' button.

    Numpad Key Names:

    1. - KP_END
    2. - KP_DOWNARROW
    3. - KP_PGDN
    4. - KP_LEFTARROW
    5. - KP_5
    6. - KP_RIGHTARROW
    7. - KP_HOME
    8. - KP_UPARROW
    9. - KP_PGUP
    10. 0. - KP_INS


    Recommended Commands Keybinding:

    {Moderator] Key binds:

    Bind 'KP_END' "say /tp"                    - Teleport
    Bind 'KP_DOWNARROW' "say /back"            - Teleport Back
    Bind 'KP_PGDN' "say /backspawn"            - Telport Back to Spawn

    {Administrator] Key binds:

    Bind 'KP_LEFTARROW' "say /cloak [RP-Name]" - Cloak
    Bind 'KP_5' "say /uncloak [RP-Name]"       - Un-Cloak
    Bind 'KP_RIGHTARROW' "say /god [RP-Name]"  - Enable God Mode
    Bind 'KP_HOME' "say /ungod [RP-Name]"      - Disable God Mode
    Bind 'KP_UPARROW' "zarp_freeze"             - Freeze All Props
    Bind 'KP_PGUP' "rp_unown"                   - Unown Door






    SSRP Meeting Information:

    The ZARP SSRP Server has staff meetings each week at Saturday 19:00 PM - GMT in which:

    • There is a server discussion.
    • Review of all New Moderator Applications
    • Review of all New Administrator Applications {Administrator + }
    • Lead Team Meeting {Super-Administrator + }

    • Note: As a staff member you do not have to attend the meeting but it is highly recommended that you do.

    The loop of reviewing applications in the SSRP meeting is:

    • Reading The Application.
    • Checking for flaws or incorrect content.
    • Checking for Recent In-Game Warnings (Recent warnings are warnings given in the close 2 weeks).
    • Pointing out Positives & Negatives about the player.
    • Hosting a poll with all the staff member's votes.
    • And finally posting the result (Accepted or Declined).




    Staff Member Areas:

    In ZARP we have two SSRP Servers, however, only one of them has Staff Member Areas, these are as stated - only for staff members use, A Player or a Moderator may be given the permission to host an event in one of these areas by an Admin.
    These areas are accessible for all staff members and can be reached using Noclip or Teleport.



    Staff Area I:

    Staff Guidelines & Rules:

    The following are the main guideline rules to all staff members, it is recommended you follow them in order to make yourself as useful and helpful to players and to prevent yourself from getting demoted.

    General Guidelines

    • Do not punish other staff member's if you have an issue contact a Super Admin or above.
    • Never kick or warn somebody without a sit first!
    • Nobody other than yourself should be on your account on our server. If you have a mod/admin rank only you should have access to play on our server, that means no little brothers etc. using your account!
    • You may not have a rank on another server when you do on our server.
    • When actively administrating please change your job to admin/mod on duty. ( You can still be a role play job if you're just helping with a high amounts of F1 Requests)

    • Do not use your powers on other mods/admins without their permission.
    • Do not role-play at all while on duty. This can include; printing, owning houses/doors, using weapons, driving or spawning props.
    • Always make sure you have sufficient proof that somebody has broken a rule before punishing them, witnesses & logs don't count as evidence for rule breaking!
    • Always make sure that the person fully understands what rule they have broken and why they can't do it! This will prevent false complaints etc.
    • When banning/kicking someone, check and check again that you have the right person/SteamID!
    • No matter how disrespectful a player is, please handle him calmly and politely, there is no need for you to disrespect him back.
    • Be Respectful To All Players & Staff!
    • If requested to help players, do so kindly and without being lazy, think about the community and it's players.
    • And last, Enjoy helping others, You were chosen to join the staff members for a reason.

    Admins+ Guidelines

    • No-clipping to build is permitted as long as you don't let it interfere with role-play!
    • If you're no clipping be sure to be cloaked ( you can also just use free spectate which makes it harder to get caught slipping such as not un-cloaking)
    • If a mod needs help go help them with the best of your ability.
    • Make sure to ask everyone including mods and other admins for proof before banning someone. ( If you issue the ban it's your ban)

    The F1 & The F6 Menus:


    As a staff member you have access to two staff menus which are there to help you maintain the server.


    The F1 Menu:

    The F1 Menu, is where you will find all recent player request and where you would go in order to handle one, it also contains all recent logs & recent warnings given.

    Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


    In order to learn how to handle a request I suggest you read the following thread created by Wheatley:

    Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


    The F6 Menu:

    The F6 Menu is a menu which holds all punishments ever given to players throughout the ZARP SSRP Servers. It is mainly used to view recent warnings in meetings or overall, You can either pick a player in-game or scroll down the list to find the 'Search' Button and from there to search using SteamID's, exactly how it is shown in this video:

    I have seen quite some posts and been asked in-game on how to auto convert rubies while AFK mining, well I hope this post will help you out because here is how you do it!

    1) Alright so firstly, you will need an auto clicker which you may probably already have. Personally, I recommend NIAutoclicker since you can tab out of your game while AFK mining and auto converting. Just click here to download it!

    2) Now in your Garry's Mod console, you will need to put the following in there:
    bind "mouse1" "_inven gems ruby 1;+attack"
    This will convert a ruby every time you click (which is why auto clicker comes in handy!), also it will mine the rocks.

    3) Go to the mines on server 1, 2 or 3 and go up to ruby rock. Then you will need to activate your auto clicker which will then start to mine the ruby and auto convert.

    You can tell if it's automatically converting if it does this:

    I hope this guide will come in good handy to those who are interested in doing this! If there is a mistake in the post or you need some help if it fails to work, feel free to contact Clarky here!

    Hello There!
    Due to some new people have made a bad start in making gangs, I thought I'd write this guide out to help you to the best of my ability. If you'd like to suggest stuff or ask me questions then please write them down below and I'll get to you as soon as possible.

    Making a good gang in SSRP is extremely hard to do, As they're many reasons why your gang could fail or just nobody wants to join it. First of all, You need to make sure you've got enough funding in and out of the gang to start it off, You don't want to make a gang that isn't getting any further than just the cost of $50,000 to make it.

    How to create a gang:
    If you join in game and press f4 then go to "Gangs" you can see a new thing has popped up, If you're not in a gang you can see a option called "Create Gang". This will cost you $50,000 to do so.

    Funding
    Making a gang is hard if you're poor or have less money, I recommend having a good ammount of funds to start it off and get the ball rolling, Now don't just put all your money in it right away, due to you might not get any members and then you've just lost money. I recommend puting in $5,000,000 at first so that's something, Bare in mind you don't want to put in all of your money as it will be really hard at first.

    Name
    Now, You're wanting to make a unique name that will be known. You don't want to make a gang after games/items as it's just weird as most people want to join a gang that's unique and special in there own way. Just spend quite a bit of time thinking names or googling names for stuff then once your happy with the name then you want to make that gang that name.

    Reputation
    If you're in good relations with the community and you're not a rule breaker then that's a bonus as then people would join you as they know you won't get them in to trouble, I wouldn't start a gang if I was known as a rule breaker as then only rule breakers or nobody would join you and then you've just lost and letted the gang fail.

    Tough
    Starting a gang is really tough at first as you've got 0 upgrades so less people will join you due to not having enough upgrades to meet there needs, I'd recommend getting friends in the gang at first so it's known to be there and just focus on raiding and getting funds for the gang, Even when times are tough don't let it beat you, just strike back harder and then your gang will become a decent gang if you don't let hard times get you down.

    Getting Members with 0 Upgrades
    Now, getting members with 0 upgrades will be hard due to being so many other competitive gangs out there that might have more upgrades than you do/better than you. All you need to do is if you've just started off only invite friends until you get 1 or 2 upgrades then more people will be eager to join you due to you having some upgrades that makes them happy.

    Fellow Members:
    If you've already got members in your gang, Make sure you're strict on who you accept and don't do what most people do is accept everyone who applies, As if you do this your gang will be known as accepting everyone who's bad/good/rulebreaker and if you've got alot of rule breakers in your gang then your full gang will be in the bad books as then your gang will be known as the mingey gang who nobody wants to join.

    Applications:
    If you've made an application, I'd recommend making it good and snazzy so you'll learn most things about people before they're even in your gang, Now I'm not talking about asking them to write out a full essay just to join your gang as most people are lazy, Make it short and enough detail that you require.

    Members with Upgrades:
    If you're lucky enough to get this far with your gang then you've overcame some of the obstacles, Just remember to not accept every person in your gang as then rule breakers will join and then that's your gang always known as rule breakers, I'd check them every week if you're hosting meeting and always speak to officers to see if they have any problems. As Friendliness is key to become a successful gang that player will join and love to be in.

    Reputation:
    I wouldn't recommend you back stabbing people, As then your gang will be known as people who back stab so people won't like you or your gang as they can't trust you.
    Starting and earning them:
    If you've just made a gang and you've got 0 upgrade, It'll take some time before you get one due to needing to have $50,000,000 and 50,000 loot for the cheapest upgrade. Just keep at it and get known with people who base a lot so you'll earn $$$ then just raid people so you manage to get Loot.

    Buying a gang:
    Yes, You could also buy a gang that has upgrades to make it easy for you, All you need is $$$$ and then the person who is selling there gang will make you owner of it so then you have upgrades if you don't want to earn them all yourself.

    Suggestions:
    If you've got any questions/suggestions to ask, Then post them down below and I'll help you out the best I can, Hopefully this guide helps you make a new gang and maks you understand it is quite hard to make it successful so be prepared!

    Introduction
    So, there's been a lot of controversy in regards to crosshairs, what's allowed and what isn't. Basically if you're unsure if your crosshair is allowed or not you shouldn't use it. However, this way I'll be showing you is allowed and you cannot be punished for it.

    Step One: Downloads
    In order to follow the further steps in this guide, you'll need to download the following Crosshair Overlay Software.

    Download Link: customdesktoplogo.wikidot.com/local--fil...esktop_Logo_V2.2.zip

    It should automatically download from there, open the ZIP file, the folder, and then finally load of the program CustomDesktopLogo.

    Step Two: Set Launch Options
    Next, you'll want to add the following commands to your launch options:

    -windowed -noborder



    Library -> Right Click Garry's Mod -> Properties -> [General] Set Launch Options

    Step Three: Crosshair Settings
    Now the next step is where you're going to get your crosshair to physically appear on your screen.

    On your taskbar you should see something like this .

    You'll need to right click this, and go to "Settings"

    Go here now:



    You'll need to make a folder somewhere in your Pictures under This PC.

    For instance, mine is called "crosshair".

    Step Four: Crosshair Image

    Now you'll need to go to google images and get a .png of a relatively small crosshair. Not too big, not too small. I'd recommend no more than a 200x200 pixel image.

    Once you've got your crosshair, place it in your crosshair folder and go back to your Settings on the program. Press Refresh Image List and the crosshair should now appear on your screen.

    Step Five: Crosshair Placement
    Now Under your Settings go to Location and under Display Location click Centre.



    The Final Thing to do is simply right click the program on your task bar and make sure Drop Folder Mode is not enabled.

    Intro

    So recently with the increasing demand for binds in order to equip things such as the Terroriser Outfit a lot of players have been trying to find a way to do so, this has been proven to be difficult due to the fact that binds don't allow you to nest quotes. This means that you can't do something such as the example below due to it making you put quotes within quotes.
    bind "_inven use "Terroriser Outfit""
    A few people figured out a way to do this recently and decided to try and sell the method of doing so but that's hardly fair so here's the method of doing it.


    Tutorial

    For this example I'll show you how to make a bind for the Terroriser Outfit, this works just the same for any other item.

    First of all navigate to the following folder:
    GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg

    In that folder create a .cfg file and put whatever command you'll want to run in order to equip your item and save the file with any given name as long as it's still a .cfg file.
    In my case that command would be:
    _inven use "Terroriser Suit"

    I named my file terroriser.cfg, this means that I'll need to remember that name for the actual bind once I'm ingame.
    Once you're ingame and you've saved your .cfg open your console and bind any key you wish to the following.
    exec <filename>
    in my case I would do
    bind "F11" "exec terrorsier"


    This bind successfully fixes the issue of not being able to bind with nested quotes via console, feel free to reply with futher questions here if you don't understand something or if you require help.

    Welcome to the Trading Advice thread, Here you can learn on how to be successful dealing with trades.

    Now, The aim of this thread is to help new people who are still new to Zarp Gaming and to lend them a helping hand to give them some advice on trading with people through the servers.

    Now, Step 1 of the trading advice is to locate the person who you'd like to sell your item to, Now this part could be tricky if you're roughly new or have a really expensive weapon as not enough people might have the cash or they just genuinely don't want the item in there inventory. The most common things that people are interested in buying are Milkors/RPG/M202/Matador/Orbitial Strike. They are just the few some people including myself really like to deal business with as it's more easy to sell than waiting for ever to get the item sold.

    Step 2 of the trading advice, is going to your customer and getting down to business. However, You don't want to just storm in there and pressing f2 to trade with the person straight away, You're more better to secure a deal and as well as know the price the player who is buying your item wants to buy it for. Now, My advice for you is don't go too low where you make loss and he gets profit. Talk with the customer for about 2 minutes or something to negotiate prices and get to know if the player is still interested in the item you are selling.

    This is the final step to make sure the only thing you'll earn in $$$ and not loss, This step is all about getting down to business and dealing with the sale of your item. As you've negotiated the price with the person you'll be selling your item to, Now you can proceed to do the trade. Walk up to the customer and press "f2" located above the "2" button on your keyboard or next to f1, Once you've pressed this button while aiming at the player, The customer would have got a trade request located at the top left of your screen, Once the player has clicked on Accept or just pressed f1. A new will will pop up where you can see all your items in your pocket (excluding bank) and your customer can see all of there's. Now, If you're selling the item then you can click on the item and hold + drag it in to the designated window located at the middle of your screen. Once you've done this then your customer can see that you have the item available in trade. Once your customer has added in the designated ammount you and the person has a greed on, You can now click on "Confirm". However, Don't always go first! make your customer always click "Confirm" and then "Accept" before you make any more moves. Now, If it lasts longer than 4 minutes I'd cancel the trade and final someone else to do business with.

    Congratulations!, You are now ready to be let off in to the big world where people can buy and sell stuff!, Remember to follow this guide/advice and you'll be good to go! I've listed a few thing below to help you on your way!

  • Locate Customer
  • Talk prices
  • Get down to buisness
  • Always make them go first!, You never click confirm before the other person does.
  • Follow this guide/advice

  • Thanks for looking at this small guide/advice to learn how to trade, If you've got any suggestions below then please feel free to suggest them and if I like them I'll add them!
