[TTT] Guide to becoming a staff member! 2 years 9 months ago #449683

This is just a little guide to help people who want to become staff on TTT to be able to achieve their goals and how to get promoted!

Also, for anyone wondering, this is the staff hierarchy:

Community Owner
^
Community Manager
^
Server Owner
^
Head Admin
^
Super Admin
^
Administrator
^
Moderator


Moderator

Behaviour:

First of all, we will look at the behaviour you need to follow to become a Moderator. We preferably want you to have 0 recent warnings, but depending on the situation, one or two MAY be overlookable. If you are not sure of the rules for TTT, you can read them by going here. Also remember that you will need to know these rules if you do become staff, since you will be punishing people for breaking them. You don't want to falsely punish people!

Activity:

We recommend that you have at least two weeks of constant activity before you apply for staff. Constant activity is important because as a staff member, you should have at least 4 hours of activity per week so that you can be doing your job as much as you can.

The Application:

Now, if you have good behaviour and activity, now you can make an application! Remember to post your application in the applications section, and make sure you follow the correct template.

Make sure to put in as much detail and effort as you can!

While you wait for the TTT meeting to happen on the coming Sunday, remember to keep being active and behaving well!
If you don't get accepted, don't lose hope! The staff will always leave a reason for why you were denied on your application, so look at that and act upon it before applying again!

If you get accepted, one of the TTT Lead Team will train you:

Please view the TTT Lead Team here
Administrator

Now you're a Moderator, but you want to do more for the server. You want to be able to help people more and stop rulebreakers better than before. After being a Moderator for a couple of weeks and attending at least one meeting, you can apply for Admin!

Handling Reports:

If you want to become an Admin, you're going to have to show us that you're dedicated to the server and doing your job. Handle as many reports as you can, but make sure you handle them all properly, and ensure that you do not falsely punish anyone. Read through the rules in order to know when people are in fact rulebreaking. When you were trained, you should have been told how and when to use your powers, but message another staff member if you have any questions or concerns. Most staff will be happy to help you!

Meetings:

Attending meetings and making sure you participate will really boost your chances, you want the upper staff to notice you and realise that you are doing your best for the server, so you need to be interacting with your fellow staff members. You can do this outside of meetings too.

Communicate:

Don't just handle everything yourself and do everything solo! Other staff members aren't your enemies or rivals. Add them on steam, chat with them on Teamspeak. Make sure people know you exist and that they know you're trying to interact with them.

Activity:

Make sure you are active on the server! As a staff member, you should be online for at least 4 hours per week, but if you're on for longer, that can help to show dedication. Don't worry if you can't get over that time, just try your best. If you are going to be inactive, make sure you create a thread about it in the Staff Discussion section.

The Application:

Much like Moderator, you will have to apply for Admin. This application can be easier or more difficult, but you should definitely try to fill it out as best you can. The template is in the same thread as the Moderator application template - which can be found here.

Once again, make sure to put in as much detail and effort as you can!

Now you've submitted your Admin application! Again, you will have to wait until the TTT staff meeting on the following Sunday to find out if you got accepted or not. Again, if you got accepted, a Super Admin+ (the same as for a Mod) will train you to use all your new commands and privileges, including the ability to handle player reports and ban/warn appeals on the forums.

What Next?

If you become an Admin, you may be wondering "but how do you get Super Admin+?". The Lead Team is a much larger responsibility than just Moderator or Admin. You have far more to do. You used to be unable to even apply for Super Admin, you had to be chosen by the Lead Team, but now there are application for the Lead Team ranks (Super Admin and Head admin). The application for Super Admin, much like the applications for Mod or Admin, has a template which can be found in the "Application" section, and you need to fill out as best you can, showing what you have done for the server and what you think you will be able to continue to do, while also showing your experience in the questions asked. In order to become a Head Admin, the application is a little more difficult for most people. The application for Head Admin does not follow a specific template as much, and you will have to write out everything you think is relevant, making the application from scratch (except the details section given), to prove that you have dedication and to give you a chance to show yourself off and explain everything that you have to offer. We expect you to carry out your duties: showing an active presence in-game, handling reports and appeals in-game or on the forums and acting as a responsible role model for members of the community.


Some tips from the Head Admins:
  1. Handle as many reports at the forums and in game as possible!
  2. Go above and beyond to help others, even when a solution may not be reached.
  3. Show your presence in the community, be it on the forums or the Teamspeak server.
  4. Attend/contribute to meetings as much as possible; boosting your presence specifically for TTT.
  5. Be active - make sure to meet the activity requirements weekly.

If you have any questions or need any more assistance, please feel free to contact myself or any other staff member!

[TTT] The Complete Guide 2 years 6 months ago #498402


By TheXnator


When you first start playing TTT, you may be a little confused about what to do, and how the gamemode works. It's incredibly simple! First of all, you will want to go and read the server rules here in order to ensure that you understand what you can and can't do and don't end up becoming a rulebreaker.
Once you have read over the rules, you need to know what to do. When you are playing TTT, there are 3 possible roles, each with a different way to play:


When you are an Innocent, you aim to survive the round and kill all the Traitors. While you are an innocent, you should be actively looking out for anything that you notice which is suspicious. If you notice anything that (by the rules) proves that someone is a traitor, you should call a KOS (Kill on Sight) on that player. In order to call a KOS, there are a few things you could do. You could use the old-fashioned method of doing things where you simply type into chat "KOS <player>", but there are much easier ways to do this. While in-game, if you press F1, a menu will open. On that menu, you will see a sub-menu called "Help". When you click that, there is another sub-menu which is the "Key binder". Inside the key binder, you can click on any of the given phrases in and then choose which key you want to bind it to by simply clicking it. You can easily set any binds, but the most useful ones are the binds to KOS or call a suspicion on a player. Once you have your binds set up, when you look at a player and press your KOS bind, it will say into chat "KOS <player>" automatically! This means that you can very easily ensure that if a player does something and you have to call a KOS quickly, other players will know to kill the player.
As an Innocent, you should also follow what the Detective tells you (within reason, acceptable things for a Detective to make you do can be found in the rules). If the Detective tells you to do something and gives you a reasonable amount of time to follow through, you should do so or you could be KOS'd. This also applies to a "Life check" which could be called by a Detective. When a Detective calls a life check, you should just type anything down into chat in order to notify players that you are in fact alive. If you fail to respond to the life check, you could be KOS'd, so be sure to respond to them in time!
If a player has a KOS on them, you may kill them. Killing Traitors is a good thing, and it will get you points and get you closer to winning the round, but if you kill other Innocents, it will lower your karma. When your karma goes below 1000, it will make you start to deal less damage, and if your karma goes too low, you can get temporarily banned as a result! Killing anyone without a valid reason (all valid reasons can be found in the rules), could result in a warning and a slay from a staff member, so be sure to have a reason before you kill people.


As a Traitor, your aim is to kill everyone without dying yourself. You have a time limit to kill everyone, which you can see in the bottom left of your screen, next to where it says your role. As a Traitor, you have access to the traitor shop, which you can access by pressing ‘C’ by default, or whatever you have set your
“Show Content menu” keybind to. From the Traitor shop, you can buy special equipment which can aid you in killing people. Remember though, if you are seen with a Traitor weapon, you could be KOS’d. There are many strategies that you can use to kill people, but you should stick with one that suits you the best. There are many common strategies such as: trying to play off your kills, trying to not get seen killing or trying to kill everyone so fast that they don’t get caught, and many more. Remember that you can work with your fellow Traitors (if you have any) to try to kill everyone, and remember that you should not be killing your Traitor buddies.


As a Detective, your role is similar to that of the Innocent, but you have a lot of extra tools to help you catch the Traitors. Much like the Traitors, you can press your key for your content menu in order to open up a shop GUI, in which you can buy special equipment. You will always spawn with a DNA scanner which you can left click on a dead body in order to find out who killed it (unless they died too long ago, they killed them from too far away or the player died from a cause which was not directly from another player. You can right click with your DNA scanner in order to remove samples of DNA which you no longer need, to toggle on / off the auto-rescanning or to switch between which DNA sample you will be seeing. Detectives can also force people to do certain things, and all of the things which a Detective is allowed to force players to do (if given enough time) is written in the rules. You are also able to call a lifecheck; you can add a keybind to lifechecks using the ingame key binder, or simple type into chat yourself “Lifecheck or KOS” and you must give players 20 seconds to respond in chat before killing them. In order to respond to a lifecheck, a player can just type anything into chat. Much like as an Innocent, you still need valid reasons to kill anyone, which can be found in the rules, and the ultimate aim is just to survive the whole round.


The Traitor shop contains a lot of weapons, but you can check a brief overview of each of them inside the shop GUI in game.





Here is an overview of the Detective shop, with all of the things that you can buy labelled with what they do:



A: VISUALISER – This will show how a player died, if they died of gunshot wounds.
B: UMP PROTOTYPE – This is an SMG which disorients those you shoot
C: TELEPORTER – Allows you to teleport to locations. Set a location with right click, and teleport with left click.
D: HEALTH STATION – Heals players when they hold E (use) on it. Loses charge when used, gains charge with time.
E: BINOCULARS – Allows you to check a body from a distance.
F: DEFUSER – Instantly defuses a C4.


The traitor tester is something which allows you to test whether or not a player is a Traitor. You must first find the gold block somewhere on the map and put it onto the crafting table in order to activate the tester. A player can walk into the tester and (if the door above and below are both closed), you can pull the lever and the torch will turn red if they are a Traitor and green if they are Innocent. The tester can be trapped, however, making it turn red no matter who goes in. If the torch turns red, it is a good idea to test again to ensure that the tester is not trapped.
As an Innocent, you cannot force players to test, but a Detective can (as long as they give the player sufficient time, which is around 20 – 30 seconds).
The button in the Traitor Tester will drop the player into the lava below. You can do this if you are a traitor and want to kill them or if the torch goes red. If you drop a player when the torch is green, and you are not a Traitor, it counts as RDM.


There is an alternative way to win the game as Innocent / Detective, and that is collecting all of the diamond ore blocks which are hidden around the map. The Traitors can find these blocks too and hide them in order to stop the Innocents / Detectives bringing them all to the furnace (found at the base of the tower) and winning the round.
If you collect all the diamond blocks and put them into the furnace, it will teleport all players to the End above the map and automatically make Innocents win the round.


If you witness a player rulebreaking, and there is a staff member online, you can report them by simply typing !report into chat. A GUI will then open and you can select the player who broke the rule and type in a reason (under 155 characters in order to prevent spam reports) for the report. Wait until the player responds to the report (giving them a chance to explain themselves) and a staff member will be with it as soon as they have a chance.
If there are no staff members online, or all the online staff members are AFK, you can go onto the forums and make a report in this section, ensuring that you use the correct template. An Admin+ will handle your appeal ASAP and come up with a verdict. Ensure that you provide some form of evidence in your report (such as videos), since that makes it much easier to handle.
If you wish to report a staff member for abuse or breaking rules, you should not use the ingame report system. You should go to the same section as for player reports and use the demote request template. Again, ensure that you have some form of evidence, and your report will be reviewed in the following Lead Team meeting. Alternatively, you can make a report directly to a Lead Team member (Super Admin+) if you do not wish to post in on the forums (for example, if you wish to remain anonymous to the staff member you are reporting).


There are a lot of in-game levels, and for certain levels, you can unlock new weapons with which you spawn. You can select these unlocked weapons under F1 > Unlocks, and you unlock new weapons at level 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33 and 37. You can find all of the in game levels in order on this thread, which is updated when the ranks change.


If you wish to become a staff member on the ZARP TTT server, I have already made a guide for that, which you can find here.

I will update this guide if I feel there is anything else I should add, and if you think that anything has been missed out then feel free to tell me and I will add it!

How to handle a report on TTT

Hello everyone!

As of late, I've been getting more and more complaints from both users as well as staff members (that were formerly users) that our staff team has not been properly handling reports. As this is a relatively big issue that I have noticed myself as well, I've decided to make this quick guide to help everyone with handling reports properly.

What is a report exactly?
To handle a report properly, you need to understand what a report actually is. It might seem like an obvious question, however a lot of staff members do have problems, and sometimes you do see staff members warning users for making supposed "false reports," perhaps presumptuously.

A report is exactly what it sounds like: a user reporting another user. This may be for everything: micspam, RDM, false KOS, hacking and even disrespect. Just because it's majorly used for RDM does not mean that users can only report others for that sole reason.

A report can be deemed false when a user is randomly reporting someone else for literally or when the user does not explain the reason for the report. Here is a good example:

In this report the user makes no attempt at actually trying to explain themselves or why they reported the other user in the first place. If the user makes reports like these multiple times and has been told by a staff member to not do it again you may warn them for it. If a user reports someone for a valid reason other than RDM, you may not warn them for it.

Note that spamming reports might also be considered false reporting, but the game does not allow you to report many users in one round and thus such a situation should rarely, or perhaps even never occur.

A user is lying in the report. What now?
If a user is blatantly lying, you can ignore their side altogether. If they're the victim you can just set the report as finished - if you do this, do make it clear to the users in question that you're dropping the report because the victim is lying - and if they're the reported user you may just warn them for whatever bad thing they did. You can also warn them for lying in the report, but as that raises quite a few questions I'd recommend you to just keep it for what it is and not warn them for it. Although, like I said, you are allowed to do so.

However, a user is not always blatantly lying. In fact, it might seem like a user is lying when they're actually not. They might just be misinformed, or have not realized something important. In these cases, opening a chat is highly recommended. Let the users talk it out and find out the truth that way. It usually ends with the two users forgiving one another and you can simply leave it at that without needing to give out any punishments.

In the few cases where the victim does not forgive the reported user, you as a staff member need to stand up and explain what you believe the truth to be. If the reported user broke a rule that he didn't realize existed, explain the rule to them and tell them to read up on the rules on the forums. In these cases you may give a punishment to the reported user, however I personally recommend you not to.

We as staff are here to help the users. If we punish new users for every minor rule broken then we're not helping them - we're only disturbing their play time. Which, by the way, is also considered a breach of the Staff Ethos.

So when should I open a chat and when should I not?
That's mostly up to you, but it always depends on what kind of a report it is. Personally I have a handy rule of thumb: if it is a report where one of the two users seems to be unwilling to talk - for example when the reported user responds with "asfafdsajfafja" - I don't open a chat. For all other cases I do open a chat, even if it might seem unneeded.

Please do understand that this is only how I handle my reports. You as a staff member might never open a chat and just tell them the mistake they made with the punishment - for example: "!warn [username] RDM - Don't throw random grenades!" - however I personally do not do this as I do not believe the user will understand that they made a mistake.

Even if it is entirely obvious that someone broke a rule, the user in question might not know it themselves. Therefore opening a chat to explain to them that they broke a rule or anything else to explain the event that happened would be for the best.

Is there anything else I should know?
You should know many, many things. For example, the way you've been taught to warn users - that I personally still use myself, might I add - is actually not the best way to do so. However you'll learn how to handle reports properly with experience and time. When I first began I barely ever opened a chat. Now I practically always do.

The most important thing you should know is this, simple sentence: quality over quantity

I'm unsure whether it is because we're the nr. 1 TTT server in the world or because we have started to track our staff member's weekly report count a few months ago, but as of late certain staff have decided to take the quantity over quality route.

Let me tell you this: no matter how great of a staff member you are, if you don't handle reports properly you might as well not do them at all. Like I said earlier, we're here to help the users - not to punish them endlessly. The chances of you getting demoted because you don't handle reports with the same care as others is extremely small - practically nonexistent, actually - however that does not mean that you should handle reports as fast as possible.

That's the reason why I made this guide: to help staff members understand that although they might not get demoted - in fact, with a high report count you obviously have a better chance of getting promoted - that does not mean that they're doing the right thing. Of course, perhaps my interpretation of "the right thing" does not match yours at all, however different opinions is not a bad thing in the slightest.

Last but not least I will show you an example of how I, personally, handle a regular report. This goes for most situations.

How I handle a report

Firstly I take a quick look at the report that I have decided to take. Note that the reported player's response clearly indicates that this was RDM, as he killed on suspicion. Other than that, there's very little noteworthy in the logs - it is quite simply put, blatant RDM.


I decided to open a chat. I first ask them for their sides of the story, and in case they forgot what the report was about I (and I do this always) copy the final log that shows the victim's death.


The user admits to having RDMed. Note that there is a slight discrepancy in the two users' stories, as the victim states he was only trying to climb a ladder and the reported user states that the victim was "charging" at him. However, as the reported user admits to it it does not really matter for the outcome.

As the reported user was only a new player, having just joined the server a few rounds before, I decided to not punish them for it. They were clearly sorry and accepted that they made a simple mistake.


Here I give a supposed "verbal warning" to the user in question. If I see them break another rule I'll punish them for it.

After this I type a quick "Thank you for your time. Have fun playing!" that I sadly enough do not have a picture of, close the chat and I finish the report. It takes but a minute, but it makes the user feel listened to and wanted in the community.

Please understand that this guide is not quite done yet. I'll try to see if I can make more pictures of other situations to show how I would handle those situations, however for now I'll keep it at this.

Thank you for reading! Hope you learned something from this!

Congratulations! You are now a staff member of ZARP TTT Server!. Firstly let's get to know the ULX menu system, the "Staff Member Menu" we use for the server. Anyone can access this menu, however only staff can see the commands that are available to them.

The aim of moderation on the server is to improve the experience for people, not to interrupt people’s roleplay when it’s not necessary. Staff are there to have fun and to help others have fun too not to ban and warn everyone who breaks minor rules that have little effect on the server. Wherever possible use powers such as mute, freeze and jail instead of banning and kicking.
- taken from the Staff Ethos.


To make opening the ULX menu easy, bind it to a preferred button using this command:

bind "m" "xgui"

As a staff member you now have access to serveral commands, the commands which are available for your current rank will show up in your ULX menu under different categories.


Staff Rules


  • Do not abuse your powers in any way.

  • Do not punish other staff members. If you have an issue contact a TTT Lead Team Staff Member.

  • Nobody other than yourself should be on your account on our server. (Family, Friends etc..)

  • You may not have a rank on another server when you have one in ZARP. (Not Including the Friendly Players servers)

  • Do not use your powers on other staff members without their permission.

  • Always make sure you have sufficient proof that somebody has broken a rule before punishing them, witnesses 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.

  • 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!

  • When banning/kicking someone, check and check again that you have the right person/SteamID!

  • 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.

How To Get Someone's SteamID



Staff Commands


Staff Commands in TTT can be used in 3 ways

The ULX Menu

Example of a Force Spectate on "AfroHat" through The ULX Menu:



The Chat Box

Example of a Force Spectate on "AfroHat" through The Chat Box:



The Development Console

Example of a Force Spectate on "AfroHat" through The Development Console:



You can use any one of these three methods however you like.

I KNOW Raeker DID THIS BUT THIS IS MORE DETAILED FOR EACH SITUATION.
So recently I've seen a few people asking me or others on how to handle certain situations, this guide will help you on what to do should you encounter a situation as stated below.


"I thought you were in the T Shop"


Ok, so these kind of situations are mostly down to thinking someone is in a T Shop - this could be true, or this could be entirely false where the user is actually AFK, tabbed out or trying to type in game, rules state you cannot kill unless you have valid reasoning. This is how you should respond in these situations.


So from here you now decide whether they should be handed a warn + aslay (for the reason RDM on Suspicion) which you can check from the rapsheet.



"You shot me first"




In these situations, a user may be lying to cover up their own actions and cannot admit to their mistakes, doing so by accusing the other user of shooting first. This is how you should respond:



Ok, so the reported user claims the victim shot first, this is where you need to check the damagelogs to see if there was any damage done.



Please take into account that the damagelogs do not prove who shot first, but rather who got hit first. This is where the handy shotlogs come in, this will determine who shot first and caused this PvP.




From the shotlogs we can see that it was the victim who shot first and instigated this PvP - this is what should be said to in the chat.




Should a user like the victim keep making reports such as this, you are entitled to hand them a warn (for false reporting).


"You had a T weapon"


This can go down in either two ways, the user is an innocent who picks up a T weapon or a Traitor makes the report. If a user picks up the weapon you must check to see if they stated in the text chat either this would be deemed the victims fault, an example would be like this.


This is where you can use the damagelogs to find out whether the user was innocent or a traitor with an example such as:


Onto the report


This is where we check to see if the victim had a T-sniper (M98B) within the damagelogs, It's advised you press "Edit Filters" and then press "Show Weapon Purchases":



This is the case where the traitor may have thought no one saw him with a T sniper whilst he was holding it out, a simple mistake nevertheless you should show the logs of proof that he had an M98B and shotlogs may also help in this situation.



Should the incident be that it was an innocent victim who was killed because the reporter player THOUGHT he had a T sniper / weapon, you must check all logs to make sure this is true and if the victim did not have T-weapons then you must inform the reported player that they misunderstood or RDM'd, if the reported player understands this and is new to the game then a verbal or just !warn on its own will suffice, should the reported player be a common user or someone with recents punishments then a !warn + !aslay should be handed out.

"There was a KOS"

KOSes are allowed within the servers, everyone knows that, it's up to the users on should they follow them or whether or not these KOSes were actually carried out. One way of doing so is checking text-chat (the most easiest way), the other actually having to listen out for people in voice chat to confirm a KOS via voice.


Here we can see that user "Cryno" was called out by user "Nay" (the victim of the report) for throwing random nades (something that isn't allowed as an innocent/detective (unless a smoke is thrown or the grenade is away from everyone), but here a KOS is called upon him, upon the report Nay points out the user was KOSed for Random Nade Throwing - completely allowed. So I open a chat and see why user "Iris heart" killed Nay despite there being a KOS.


Nay reported that Cryno was throwing Random Nades, always check the logs to make sure of this.


Logs clearly show that the KOSed user was throwing random grenades. This should be made aware to the reported victim, who appears to deny the fact that he wasn't around for the KOS (however he's proven wrong as the KOS was called around the time for him to see the KOS before killing a different user), he then tries to claim he didn't see it (Lying In Report). As a result - you can then choose to punish the user for RDM (depending on the users rapsheet).

"You were wounded/damaged"


Some people tend to think because someone is wounded that it is a valid reason to kill someone, it is not, there can be multiple factors as to why someone is wounded such as fall damage, nearby C4 / TNT cart or was in a PvP combat situation.


In these situations, you only have to remind the user that the incident is Killing on Suspicion (not allowed on the server) and that there could have been different reasons why someone is wounded - this is not clear evidence that someone is a Traitor.

I will continue to update this when more scenario-based reports come in.

Many thanks to these 4 for helping me out:

[TTT] Binds guide! 1 year 3 months ago #935422

Introduction
In TTT there are certain binds that will make your life in TTT much easier. For example if you want to call a KOS on somebody in chat but you're too lazy to actually type it, here's the guide to make it easier!

How to make binds
So the "format" of making any bind is as follows:
bind <key> <command>
So a TTT bind would look like:
bind "b" "ttt_radio imwith"

Different binds
Now, there are many binds you can do but these are the interactive ones.
I'm with <person you look at>
ttt_radio imwith
<person you look at> acts suspicous
ttt_radio suspect
<person you look at> is the traitor!
ttt_radio traitor
<person you look at> is innocent
ttt_radio innocent
I see <person you look at>
ttt_radio see
Anyone still alive. (lifecheck)
ttt_radio check
Binds for staff.
Open ULX menu
bind <key> "ulx menu"
Makes you noclip
"ulx noclip"
Force spectate person you're looking at
"ulx fspec @"
Brings person that you're looking at
"ulx bring @"

Final verdict and thoughts
If you accidentally say that the wrong person is T, all you need to do is say "oops, I didn't mean to KOS <person> don't KOS him".
I hope that this guide helped you. If there's anything you feel like needs to be added please tell me.

How to play Trouble in Terrorist Town

Innocent

There's a ⅝ chance of getting Innocent here is how to use the role most effectively. This is the role you will play as the most because of the high chance of getting it. So you need to get familiar with this role. When you are an Innocent, you aim to survive the round and kill all the Traitors. While you are an innocent, you should be actively looking out for anything that you notice which is suspicious. If you notice anything that (by the rules) proves that someone is a traitor, you should call a KOS (Kill on Sight) on that player (preferably in chat). As an Innocent, you should also follow what the Detective tells you (within reason, acceptable things for a Detective to make you do can be found in the rules). If the Detective tells you to do something and gives you a reasonable amount of time to follow through, you should do so or you could be KOS'd. This also applies to a "Life check" which could be called by a Detective. When a Detective calls a life check, you should just type anything down into chat in order to notify players that you are in fact alive. If you fail to respond to the life check, you could be KOS'd, so be sure to respond to them in time! If a player has a KOS on them, you may kill them. Killing Traitors is a good thing, and it will get you points and get you closer to winning the round, but if you kill other Innocents, it will lower your karma. When your karma goes below 1000, it will make you start to deal less damage, and if your karma goes too low, you can get temporarily banned as a result! There is no reward for having high karma, though if you do end up killing an innocent you will still deal max damage if your karma was high enough before that, the max is 1400. Killing anyone without a valid reason (all valid reasons can be found in the rules), could result in a warning and a slay from a staff member, so be sure to have a reason before you kill people.


Detective

There's a ⅛ chance of getting Detective here is how to use the role most effectively. Being a Detective is a lot like being Innocent but you have more tools and you spawn with armor and a DNA scanner. However the most valuable is the DNA scanner which you can left click on a dead body in order to find out who the murderer was (unless they died too long ago, they killed them from too far away or the player died from a cause which was not directly from another player. You can right click with your DNA scanner in order to remove samples of DNA which you no longer need, to toggle on/off the auto-rescanning or to switch between which DNA sample you will be seeing. The DNA is essential to caching Traitors as it leads you to them, to use the DNA scanner you go to a dead person or a C4 and take DNA from it. Not every dead person has DNA from the person who killed him, to see if they have DNA on him just press e on them and there should be a little window that indicates that they have DNA and how long the DNA lasts for. However, a good traitor can counter this by buying a Decoy which leads the DNA to a small box instead of the traitor. If you see one you should always destroy it. Detectives can also force people to do certain things, and all of the things which a Detective is allowed to force players to do (if given enough time) is written in the rules. Much like an Innocent, you still need valid reason to kill someone, which can be found in the rules, and the ultimate aim is just to survive the whole round.

There will be details about each of the detective items in the following link:
https://imgur.com/a/GtRZ0Ed

How to be the best Traitor

There's a ¼ chance of getting Traitor, As a Traitor, your aim is to kill everyone without dying yourself. You have a time limit to kill everyone, which you can see in the bottom left of your screen, next to where it says your role. As a Traitor, you have access to the traitor shop, which you can access by pressing "C".
From the Traitor shop, you can buy special equipment which can aid you in killing people. Remember though, if you are seen with a Traitor weapon, you could be KOS’d. There are many strategies that you can use to kill people, but it is up to you to find out which play style fits you the best. There are many common strategies such as: trying to play off your kills, trying to not get seen killing or trying to kill everyone so fast that they don’t get caught, and many more. Remember that you can work with your fellow Traitors (if you have any) to try to kill everyone, and remember that you should not be killing your Traitor buddies.
below will be a detailed example of one of these play styles.


The "Aggressive" play style:
So let’s start with the simplest one, going on rampage and killing everyone you see. This is basically the simplest one, but most likely the hardest to pull off. You need good aim or one of the higher unlock weapons (if you got both you basically won). There is more to this than just running into a crowd of people and going on a massacre, you need a good understanding of the game. Having a weapon that can kill someone with a headshot instantly is the easiest way to pull this off, however it requires a good aim. As I said previously you don’t just run into a crowd of people and start shooting (even though it may look like that to someone else), you pick your victims with care, there are some things you have to consider:

  • How many are there?
  • How far away are they from you?
  • What weapon do you have?
  • How many people?
  • Who could possibly notice you killing them?
  • How long would it take?
  • What weapons do they have?
  • Are there experienced players?
This playstyle fits you the most when you don’t like to wait the entire round for something to happen and you like to have a fast paced game, rather then have to wait 10 minutes to end 1 round. However if you just started playing this game or just started playing on this server, I would recommend you to use a different playstyle for a bit to know the environment and how the weapons are balanced and maybe get some info about the other players, who play on the server in the meantime.

There will be details about each of the traitor items in the following link:
https://imgur.com/a/ueULlIm

The traitor tester

The traitor tester is something which allows you to test whether or not a player is a Traitor. You must first find the gold block somewhere on the map and put it onto the crafting table in order to activate the tester. A player can walk into the tester and (if the door above and below are both closed), you can pull the lever and the torch will turn red if they are a Traitor and green if they are Innocent. The tester can be trapped, however, making it turn red no matter who goes in. If the torch turns red, it is a good idea to test again to ensure that the tester is not trapped. As an Innocent, you cannot force players to test, but a Detective can (as long as they give the player sufficient time, which is around 20 – 30 seconds). The button in the Traitor Tester will drop the player into the lava below. You can do this if you are a traitor and want to kill them or if the torch goes red. If you drop a player when the torch is green, and you are not a Traitor, it counts as RDM.

Reporting players

If you witness a player rulebreaking, and there is a staff member online, you can report them by simply typing !report into chat. A GUI will then open and you can select the player who broke the rule and type in a reason (under 155 characters in order to prevent spam reports) for the report. Wait until the player responds to the report (giving them a chance to explain themselves) and a staff member will be with it as soon as they have a chance. If there are no staff members online, or all the online staff members are AFK, you can go onto the forums and make a report in this section, ensuring that you use the correct template. An Admin+ will handle your appeal ASAP and come up with a verdict. Ensure that you provide some form of evidence in your report (such as videos), since that makes it much easier to handle. If you wish to report a staff member for abuse or breaking rules, you should not use the ingame report system. You should go to the same section as for player reports and use the demote request template. Again, ensure that you have some form of evidence, and your report will be reviewed in the following Lead Team meeting. Alternatively, you can make a report directly to a Lead Team member (Super Admin+) if you do not wish to post in on the forums (for example, if you wish to remain anonymous to the staff member you are reporting).

Blocks on ttt_mincraft_b5 map

There are three different types of “Blocks” on the ttt_mincraft_b5 map. They all serve different purposes which will be explained in this section (this will include all of the locations as well).

Gold Block

The gold block is used to activate the tester. There are ten spots where the Gold Block can spawn and it will only spawn in one location per round. The following link will be showing all of the locations: Here

Diamond Block

The Diamond Block is an alternative way to winning as an innocent other than kill all of the traitors or the round ending become of the time limit. It requires finding all 9 diamond blocks on the map. There are 25 diamond block spawn location on the map which will be shown in the following link: Here
Brick Block

This is a lesser-known part of the ttt_minecraft_b5 map. You can use three “Brick Blocks” to stop the TNT Minecart. The following link will be explaining how it’s done: Here

TTT Terminology

In this section, it will go over the meaning for some of the abbreviations used to make TTT easier.

KOS
KOS is the abbreviation of Kill On Site and simply means kill them if you see them. For example, someone says “KOS Kim” if you see someone called “Kim” you can kill them.

RDM
RDM is the abbreviation for Random Death Match and simply means you killed someone without a valid reason by the rule. For example player x has been damaged player y kills him for this reason. That would be RDM.

LTAP
LTAP is the abbreviation for Leaving To Avoid Punishment. What again is self-explanatory you leave the server before you can be punished. For example, player y kills player x without a valid reason - RDM - player x reports player y then player y leaves that would be LTAP.

Appealing a punishment or ban

If you have been falsely punished you should not hesitate to appeal it. If you do not have a forum account you can register here. Go to the appeals section and create a new topic with the appropriate template, which can be found below.

Punishment Appeal Template

[b]Name -[/b] What is your in-game name?
[b]STEAM-ID -[/b] What is your STEAM-ID?
[b]Staff Members Name -[/b] Who warned you?
[b]Punishment Reason -[/b] What was the reason of the warning(s)?
[b]Server -[/b] Which server did this occur on?
[b]Story/Situation -[/b] What happened?
[b]Extra Information -[/b] Anything you would find relevant to your warning(s)?
Go into detail about what happened and fill in all the information that the template requires. If you can prove that it was falsely given out it will make it easier for the staff member handling and will increase your chances of getting it accepted (this can be done with screenshots, video, etc.).
Try not to leave anything out and make it as detailed as possible.


Ban Appeal Template

[b]Name -[/b] What is your in-game name?
[b]STEAM-ID -[/b] What is your STEAM-ID?
[b]Admins Name -[/b] Who banned you/who might it be?
[b]Reason -[/b] What is/might be the reason that you got banned?
[b]Server -[/b] What server did you get banned from?
[b]Time -[/b] How long were you banned for?
[b]Story -[/b] What happened?
[b]Proof -[/b] Any proof on a video/screenshot that clearly show what happened?
[b]Extra Information -[/b] Any thing you think may be relevant to your ban.
Go into detail about what happened and fill in all the information that the template requires. If you can prove that it was falsely given out it will make it easier for the staff member handling and will increase your chances of getting it accepted (this can be done with screenshots, video, etc.).
Try not to leave anything out and make it as detailed as possible.


Your unban request may be locked if:

  • You have lied on your ban, which may also lead to your ban getting extended.
  • You didn't use one of the templates.
  • Your appeal request has been accepted/denied by an administrator (if your request has already been denied, instantly remaking one will not increase your chances for acceptance).
  • You posted in the wrong section, Appeals should be posted in the Appeals section under Appeals section.

Complete guide to staffing on TTT

Becoming Staff and Climbing the Ranks

This guide is for new players of the server seeking to become staff or get promoted.

Here's the staff hierarchy within the community

Community Owner
[CO][Owner]
^
Community Manager
[CM]
^
Community Developer
[Community Dev]
^
Server Owner
[SO]
^
Server Developer
[Server Dev]
^
Head Administrator
[HA]
^
Super Administrator
[SA]
^
Administrator
[Admin]
^
Moderator
[Mod]

Becoming a Moderator

This is the first rank in the hierarchy and therefore it has the least power since it is basically a trail rank.
This is the first rank you will be applying for and is the most important as first impressions matter.
Below are some pointers and a guide for applying and making your application.

Activity:
We recommend two weeks of consistent activity. Consistent meaning you get activity every day without gaps for two consecutive weeks. You can check this by going on the GameTracker and searching your exact steam name. Then on the right, there will be an activity graph where you can see your activity within the past 30days.

Behaviour & Personality:
First of all, we will look at the behaviour you need to follow to become a Moderator. We preferably want you to have 0 recent warnings, but depending on the situation, one or two MAY be overlookable (a “recent punishment” refers to a punishment given within the past 14 days). If you are not sure of the rules for TTT, you can read them by going here. Also remember that you will need to know these rules if you do become staff, since you will be punishing people for breaking them. You don't want to falsely punish people! We recommend a good personality. You're generally a nice person to talk with and you are helpful to other users.

Commands you get access to as a moderator and how to use them:
Link

The Application:
Now, if you have good behaviour and activity, you can make an application! Remember to post your application in the applications section, and make sure you follow the correct template. Make sure to put in as much detail and effort as you can! While you wait for the TTT meeting to happen on the coming Sunday, remember to keep being active and behaving well! If you don't get accepted, don't lose hope! The staff will always leave a reason for why you were denied on your application, so look at that and act upon it before applying again! If you get accepted, one of the TTT Lead Team will train you.

Below's a detailed guide if you need any help with making your application:
Writing an application shows what you know about the rules, who you are and why you wish to become a staff member. If you are ready to deal with the rule breakers.
All you have to do is answer the questions on this template:

[b]Steam Name:[/b]
[b]Link to Steam Profile:[/b]
[b]SteamID:[/b]
 
[b]Link to GameTracker for the server:[/b]
[b]Server 1: [/b] http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/top_players/
 
[b]Languages I speak:[/b]
 
[b]Explain "Random Death Match" and give an example scenario:[/b]
 
[b]Give three examples of an acceptable KOS and its scenario:[/b]
 
[b]Give two examples of unacceptable KOS and their scenarios:[/b]
 
[b]Why I should be chosen (we recommend around 100 words):[/b]
Before we get started writing the application we need a platform to write it on as writing it directly on the ZARP website can be a bit of a pain. I suggest using Google Docs which is completely free and only requires a Google Account you can sign up for free using this link and then going to this link where you can launch Google Docs so we can properly preview the application and edit it so we will see the final product and then export it as BBCode - what the ZARP forums use to see text colour etc - to do this we need an add-on called “BBcode Export” which will allow you to make the application how you want it to look in Google Docs and then export it.

Steam Name:
This is the easiest one as you simply just need your Steam Name which can found by the ways the images demonstrate but hopefully, you already know it.


Link to Steam Profile:
Your Steam Profile is again another easy one and is a URL link to your Steam profile where people can add you as a friend, message you and see the games you play you can find it by following the demonstration in the image below:

Just select the link highlighted and hit Ctrl + C and then past in the application.

Steam ID:
As you have your Steam Profile you can now get your Steam ID by going to this link and pasting your steam profile into the box and pressing enter. Demonstrated in the image below (SteamID is required not SteamID3 or SteamID64 are needed):


Link to GameTracker for the server:
Server 1: [url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/top_players/[\code]http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/top_players/[/url]
This is one of the easiest parts simply click on this link and do as the images show click in the search box and enter your current Steam Name then when you find your name click on it.

Copy the URL link and paste it into your application.

Languages I speak:
This literally just means what languages you speak. Not knowing enough languages will not get you denied but not knowing English to an acceptable level can. When you are listing them you should put it in brackets next to it and what level you are at for example:
  • English (Fluently)
  • Spanish (Excellent)
  • French (Ok)
Explain "Random Death Match" and give an example scenario:
Explain Random Death Match - more commonly known as RDM - in your own words and then give an example. I will now give an example of what you might want to say:

Explain "Random Death Match" and give an example scenario:
“Random Death Match” more commonly known as RDM is the act of killing someone without a valid reason. An example would be Player x kills Player y because Player y jumped of the Lighthouse.

Please don’t copy this as you will be called out for copying it and it will be brought up in the meeting. Use something else and only use this as inspiration.

Give three examples of an acceptable KOS and its scenario:
In this section give three examples of an acceptable KOS and an example. Don’t copy word for word what is said in the rules. Here are three examples:

Give three examples of an acceptable KOS and its scenario:
  1. Player x KOS’s Player y because Player y threw the Golden Block intentionally into the water.
  2. Player x - Detective - KOS’s Player y because Player y refuses to go into the tester after Player x gives 3 clear warnings in text chat.
  3. Player x KOS’s Player y after Player y walks past an unidentified body.

Please don’t copy this as you will be called you out for copying it and it will brought up in the meeting. Use something else and only use this as inspiration.

Give two examples of unacceptable KOS and their scenarios:
In this section give two examples of an unacceptable KOS and an example. Don’t copy word for word what is said on the rules say. Here are two examples:

Give two examples of unacceptable KOS and their scenarios:
  1. Player x - innocent - KOS’s Player y because Player y refuses to go into the tester after Player x gives 3 clear warnings in text chat.
  2. Player x KOS’s Player y after Player y kills Player z - traitor - before anybody are identified.

Please don’t copy this as you will be called you out for copying it and it will be brought up in the meeting. Use something else and use it as inspiration.

Why I should be chosen (we recommend around 100 words):
In this section, you should go over everything that you think is relevant to you becoming staff, for example, you’re kind, active and have played on the server for 2 months. Answer it in the way you want to and make sure you show off everything that is not in the other 9 question that is relevant. This section is a make it or break it section and you should put a lot of effort into it like the rest of your app.

When you have answered all of the questions add some colour and make it eye-catching so people remember it as a good application I would recommend looking at other applications to get inspiration for the way it looks not the content in it. Good Luck on getting Moderator and I hope this guide was helpful.

Also I would recommend using these two Moderator Applications as good places to find inspiration. Nepgear's and Dr. House's.
Becoming an Administrator
This is the second rank and for most the highest they will climb the ladder. As Super Administrator is a big jump from Administrator. Moderator is a very basic rank and has limited commands. If you think you’ve gotten the hang of things and you’re ready to get a promotion, there are some pointers below and a guide for applying and making your application.

Handling Reports:
If you want to become an Admin, you're going to have to show us that you're dedicated to the server and doing your job. Handle as many reports as you can, but make sure you handle them all properly, and ensure that you do not falsely punish anyone. Read through the rules in order to know when people are in fact rulebreaking. When you were trained, you should have been told how and when to use your powers, but message another staff member if you have any questions or concerns. Most staff will be happy to help you!

Meetings:
Attending meetings and making sure you participate will really boost your chances, you want the upper staff to notice you and realize that you are doing your best for the server, so you need to be interacting with your fellow staff members. You can do this outside of meetings too. It is also a most to have attended at least one meeting as moderator before you can get accepted. If you are unable to attend the meetings for whatever the reason for example time zone difference. Ask a Head Administrator or above for permission to apply for Administrator without attending a meeting.

Communicate:
Don't just handle everything yourself and do everything solo! Other staff members aren't your enemies or rivals. Add them on steam, chat with them on Teamspeak. Make sure people know you exist and that they know you're trying to interact with them.

Activity:
Make sure you are active on the server! As a staff member, you should be online for at least 4 hours per week, but if you're on for longer, that can help to show dedication. Don't worry if you can't get over that time, just try your best. If you are going to be inactive, make sure you create a thread about it in the Staff Discussion section.

Commands you get access to as a moderator and how to use them:

The Application:
Much like Moderator, you will have to apply for Admin. This application can be easier or more difficult, but you should definitely try to fill it out as best you can. The template is in the same thread as the Moderator application template - which can be found here. Once again, make sure to put in as much detail and effort as you can! Once you've submitted your Admin application! Again, you will have to wait until the TTT staff meeting on the following Sunday to find out if you got accepted or not. Again, if you got accepted, a Super Administrator or above (the same as for a Mod) will train you to use all your new commands and privileges, including the ability to handle player reports and ban/warn appeals on the forums.

Below's a detailed guide if you need any help with making your application:
Once your meet what is expected of you, you need to write the perfect application. To get promoted answer these 10 questions on this template:

[b]Steam Name[/b]
[b]Link to Steam Profile:[/b]
[b]SteamID:[/b]
[b]Current Gametracker Profiles:[/b]
[b]Server 1:[/b] http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/top_players/
 
[b]Estimated Server Time:[/b]
 
[b]Languages I speak:[/b]
 
[b]Explain a situation where it would be appropriate to use the ban command:[/b]
 
[b]Explain how you would handle the following situation:[/b]
[i]Player x appeals their ban in great detail, apology and effort. You check the ban list and find that you banned them permanently for Cheating, and that this is their first ban. How would your response to the appeal be?[/i]
 
[b]Why I should be promoted (we recommend around 100 words):[/b].
 
[b]Extra Information: (Not Required)[/b]
Steam Name:
This is the easiest one and it simply needs your Steam Name which you can find by the ways the images demonstrate but hopefully, you know your Steam Name anyway but for those who don't know it is the name that is displayed in every game you play.


Link to Steam Profile:
Your Steam Profile is again another easy one and is a URL link to your Steam profile where people can add you as a friend, message you and see the games you play you can find it like the image below demonstrates.

Just select the link highlighted and hit Ctrl + C and then past in the application.

Steam ID:

As you have your Steam Profile you can now get your Steam ID by going to this link and pasting your steam profile into the box and pressing enter. The image below demonstrates (SteamID is required not SteamID3 or SteamID64 are needed):


Link to GameTracker for the server:
Server 1: [url=https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/]https://www.gametracker.com/server_info/play.zarpgaming.com:27017/[/url]
This is one of the easiest parts simply click on this link and do as the images show click in the search box and enter your current Steam Name then when you find your name click on it.

Then copy the URL link and past it in.

Estimated Server Time:
This is usually the number that game tracker displays converted into hours - this is what most people do - the image below shows where you can find it on your ZARP TTT GameTracker Profile.

Then take the number and use this converter to find the time in minutes and put it in. Although there is a problem with GameTracker your time only starts to count when you get one point or one kill so this might take time so you can add an hour or two depending on how much activity you have.

Languages I speak:
This literally needs what languages you speak you should list them but don't worry if you only know English as it is very rare for you to encounter someone that doesn't speak English but it can happen for time to time. Not knowing enough languages will not get you denied but not know English to an acceptable level can. When you are listing them you should put in brackets next to it at what level you are at for example:
  • English (Fluently)
  • Spanish (Excellent)
  • French (Ok)
[/ul]Explain a situation where it would be appropriate to use the ban command:
In this section, you need to explain a time where you should use the ban command but you can list more as most people do. So I will give an example of three situations where you would use the ban command:

Explain a situation where it would be appropriate to use the ban command:
  1. Mass RDM + LTAP - Player x kills three plus people and then before action can be taken he/she leaves the game. It would then be appropriate to use the ban command.
  2. Recent Punishments - If a player has seven recents or more and then after he has been given a verbal warning and gets another punishment it would be an appropriate time to use the ban command.
  3. Ban Evading - After doing a Family Sharing Check on someone and a message like this comes up as:
    T4roMiQ(STEAM_0:0:444877016) is using an ALT to bypass a ban. Main account SteamID is STEAM_0:0:164865324
    Then you can permanently ban the main and the alt account.
Please don’t copy this as I will call you out for copying it and I will bring it up in the meeting. Use something else and use it as inspiration.

Explain how you would handle the following situation:
Player x appeals their ban in great detail, apology and effort. You check the ban list and find that you banned them permanently for Cheating, and that this is their first ban. How would your response to the appeal be?

This is up to you want you to say and if you accept or deny it if you accept the appeal use this:

Which you can do by putting
:accepted:
At the bottom of the reply or if you want to deny it you can put

Which you can do by putting
:denied:
At the bottom of the reply.

I will not give an example as this is down to you what you do and what you say. Some useful information for you only Lead Team - Super Administrators and above - can ban for cheating. So in the reply say “after talking to the Lead Team member that banned you” and then say what you want to do. I would recommend putting it in a spoiler as most people do which you can do put putting
[spoiler]
At the start and
[/spoiler]
At the end of the reply.

Why I should be chosen (we recommend around 100 words):
In this section, you should go over everything that you think is relevant to you being promoted, for example, you constantly handle reports, very active and have been Moderator for two weeks. Answer it in the way you want to and make sure you show off everything that is not in the other 9 question that is relevant. This section is a make it or break it section and you should put a lot of effort into it like the rest of your app. A big don’t in this section is to set yourself a minimum word count as people don't want to read a dragged on the application if they read it.

Also I would recommend using these two Moderator Applications as good places to find inspiration. MemesAreGoodWithKim's and Hop's.

Becoming a Super Administrator

Super Administrator is the first of two ranks in the Lead Team. It is a big step up from Administrator and comes with major responsibilities. When you become part of the staff team you will gain access to a list of recommend things to do when going for Super Administrator (if you cannot find it you can ask a Lead Team member for the link). The main criteria for getting Super Administrator will be listed below:

Activity:
Have a stable and consistent activity in game, on the forums, on TeamSpeak (that includes the meetings as well) & Discord.

Forums:
You should Have good forum activity by replying on TTT related threads (TTT applications, Appeals & report abuses) and give good, constructive feedback to all applicants. If given the chance to handle an appeal or a report abuse you should take it and show that you're willing to do more than staffing on the server alone.

TeamSpeak3:
Hop on the TeamSpeak server, it's the best way to show who you are and what you're capable off (it's always a plus when you're interacting with the community and it makes it easier for the higher ups who will ultimately be voting on you).

Meetings:
Attending Meetings is very important in becoming a Lead Team member, it's where you do the most important stuff related to the role (if you can attend the meeting you should). Meetings are also an occasion where you can show everyone who you are. When attending the meeting contribute to it and don't just hide away and listen, let people know your opinions and what you think of the applicants it is very important that you speak your mind.

Helpfulness:
Do you help other staff and users? Super Administrators are people that will help staff members in difficult situations, that means you need a good knowledge of the rules and you need to be approachable and be nice to talk with. You need to stay calm in all situations. Help users and staff in-game with questions and do not just deal with reports. It is nice to see you help other staff members when you are a non-Lead Team member which adds up to a better chance of getting accepted.

Attitude & Maturity:
You need to have a good attitude when working and doing your job as the responsibilities of a Super Administrator require a good working mindset. Have a stable attitude and be as mature as possible, but it is good to see if a Super Administrator can have fun with other people and take a joke without losing their cool.

Handling Reports & Helping out where you can:
Going for Super Administrator means that you need experience. The best way to gain experience is through handling reports in-game and on the forums and responding to questions both in game and on the forums. You can also help with doing the polls for the meeting, filling out the spreadsheet & potentially even train a moderator with a Head Administrators supervision. It is always nice to see someone showing initiative.

Application:
I’m not going to go into detail about the application process though you should go into as much detail as you can in the section but don’t drag it out to make it look long. I would recommend checking out some of these Super Administrator Application as good place to get inspiration or to base yours of:


What's next?

If you become an Administrator, you may be wondering "but how do you get Super Administrator+?". The Lead Team is a much larger responsibility than just Moderator or Administrator. You have far more to do. You used to be unable to even apply for Super Administrator, you had to be chosen by the Lead Team, but now there are application for the Lead Team ranks (Super Administrator and Head Administrator). The application for Super Administrator, much like the applications for Moderator or Administrator, has a template which can be found in the "Application" section, and you need to fill it out as best you can, showing what you have done for the server and what you think you will be able to continue to do, while also showing your experience in the questions asked. In order to become a Head Admin, the application is a little more difficult for most people. The application for Head Administrator does not follow a specific template as much, and you will have to write out everything you think is relevant, making the application from scratch (except the details section given), to prove that you have dedication and to give you a chance to show yourself off and explain everything that you have to offer. We expect you to carry out your duties: showing an active presence in-game, handling reports and appeals in-game or on the forums and acting as a responsible role model for members of the community.

Some tips from the Lead Team:
  1. Handle as many reports at the forums and in game as possible!
  2. Go above and beyond to help others, even when a solution may not be reached.
  3. Show your presence in the community, be it on the forums or the Teamspeak server.
  4. Attend/contribute to meetings as much as possible; boosting your presence specifically for TTT.
  5. Be active - make sure to meet the activity requirements weekly.

Leveling System


In this spoiler is a list showing EXP required for each rank and unlocks. [ Click to expand ]


Once you have reached the max level you are able to prestige. With each prestige level you will gain access to new weapons and you will be able to go through the levels once again. The required XP amounts above will remain the same when you prestige. You will still be able to use the older weapon unlocks when you reach prestige 2. The maximum prestige level is 10.
