Is it still worth it?
 
I started making a gamemode from scratch again yesterday, it really developed just in a day in terms of basic features but i'm afraid that the more complex features in future will be pain in the ass to make. I'm constantly questioning myself "Why are you doing this, and why are you wasting your time?". The game is old as hell, i didn't have a chance to create my own gamemode and host it and enjoy seeing players playing on it while it still had alot of players. I want to hear it from you, is it worth my or anyones time to put effort in a 13 year old multiplayer modification?
Edit: Considering that kalcor left himself.

You need patience. If you don't have it, don't even start.

Patient is not everything he need, if you create a server and wait patiently to hit player slots then it's just worthless and waste of time.

Instead be active and focus on the audience, what they like, and keep working accordingly.

If your afraid of taking on complicated challenges on your own it might be a good idea to team up with another scripter so you can both work together on the complicated projects, you dont have to do everything yourself,
gather up a team and assign duties that need to be fullfilled.

You could also just start enjoying what you do more...

I dont know what kind of gamemode you want to make,
but gamemodes dont necessarily need a lot of players to be enjoyable,
1 you can make a racing server,
2 an arena dm server,
3 a minigame server,
4 a server with challenging npcs
5 a server where the focus is on creating an enjoyable experiance even if your alone.

If your not very confident that your gamemode could succed
you could also join another server with a similiar gamemode to yours and offer to work for them.

The possibilities are all there, focus on controlling what you can do instead of what you cant do
and things will get a lot easier.

Yeah, I'm done. I haven't officially called it because there's always a chance of a security update or something.

Nobody who has been around as long as me still plays this game. If they're here at all, it's only to chat with people they met years ago.

You're wasting your time writing a SA-MP script from scratch, unless it's something that interests you. There are already loads of scripts out there.

You wouldn't start a SA-MP server in 2019. If you want to make something involving SA-MP, build a gaming community with a forum etc and run multiple games.

I've been planning to move to linux desktop for a long time. There's a shift in that direction among computing professionals and scientists.

I like the idea of sticking with security updates. But what about finally making DL the main version? Why keep two different versions? The only reason DL is not popular is its not the main version offered. And as for people saying the don't want the dl features...then don't use them!!!
