I'm trying to do something new and unique, I have gracious ideas but I do not have the scripting knowledge so good developed... ( would pay up to 300 for a scripter )

The people who create their own gamemodes from scratch will feel more rewarded for their efforts and will actually learn useful things because it forces you to think by yourself and come up with the 'systems' in your own way rather than just copy and pasting or editing other peoples code. However, if other servers are more successful than yours when they have put fuck all hard work into it then it can get really frustrating and this must be what stops people from writing their own stuff.

Most people like to stick with what they know rather than learning a whole new system; even though it isn't that difficult to learn.

I am developing a new script from scratch these days, almost 30% done, and i do really feel great. Though i have no idea what i am going to do with my current server has 80+ playerbase and i dont feel it would be a good idea to change the script, i'd rather start new server... but that too, requires time, and as i am growing up (fuck this) responsibilities are getting over me & stealing my time.

@DeadDon: post your thing with details in Here, and you might find some people willing to work for you.

Edit: ops, you already did.

I disagree on 'people like to stick with what they already know', I feel like people prefer to go with servers that don't have an original script since it's quite easier to get around, easier to become an admin, owner doesn't come out strong, etc.

I agree to the learning experience part, i have been making a script from scratch the last days and have already learned a lot (especially MySQL and performance stuff, which is also useful outside of pawn, even though not all of it applies to the outside). But my problem is, that i kind of loose my will to keep on going after a while and also i am too lazy to do some big things

I agree with this, most people are of elitist nature and prefer the easy way. It's incredibly hard to become a community figure in a larger server like LS-RP or RC-RP, simply because of the vast scale of people and because they usually want the same thing (ig money, admin, generally anything that gives them power). This is my general view on the OP as well, by the way.

I agree with the rest Mickmelon said though.
