Default Why is the sa-mp rp community reluctant to change

I've been roleplaying for a while, and not just on GTA, but everytime I come back to sa-mp I see the same exact archetypes, tropes and memes. Same servers, characters, you name it. There's been a few people who weren't afraid to change, which begs the question why... is everyone else roleplaying the SAME thing on a more than decade old platform?

E-gangsters.
E-cops.
E-girls.
E-lcns.
E-resturants.
E-bars.
E-althetles.
E-news.

Where's the imaginative minds? Where's the people who actually want to base their server in a SETTING not a San Fierro meme, having the same exact roleplay LSRP does. Does it not get boring? It's so disheartenting seeing individuals let gta stagnate.

Inb4 "WhY dOn'T yOu MaKe yOuR oWn sErVeR?" This is simply a discussion not self-relfection. If I wanted to make my own server, there'd be no need since other mediums can sastify my taste.

This is GTA, the setting will always be the same because this game isn't good for any setting that doesn't revolve around guns, crime, cops, and cars. If you don't like this type of roleplay anymore there are plenty of other games out there to cater to your needs. I don't roleplay in SAMP anymore but I still do roleplay elsewhere. It took me over 2000 hours and a lot of different roles to get bored of it, though.

There are some new possibilities with 0.3DL around, even with 0.3.7 are lots of possibilities. The problem is that there are not enough skilled developers that want to risk and try something new.

Guys think out of that stupid box! Please!

Unless these developers want to take up making models on their own, whatever skills they may have aren't going to do them any good when it comes to custom content. All they can really do is implement it. Dictating how players roleplay shouldn't be down to developers either, since the players are the ones who carve their own paths. You can provide scripts that encourage out of the box RP, but if the players ignore these features and stick to roleplaying the same things they always do, what am I as a developer supposed to do about that?

That's why it takes more than just one developer to do it. It's hard, I agree, but I don't think it's impossible.

I just give 2 more years to sa-mp.

Sa-mp will be gone soon, because everyone will grow up, will stop playing (or will go to another games)


And new kids will not choose sa-mp because it has low graphics,

that's my ideea.


I know many people which used to play sa-mp, had a GREAT name in sa-mp, but they left it because of school, university, life.



And some 12 y/o kid will not start samp because of his graphics

Yeah, that's what they said a few years ago...
