    Dear all, It is with deep sorrow that I announce my retirement from the Community Manager role within the Imperial Gaming Community. After much thought, discussions with Wolf and internal debate I have decided to hang up the hat, and it wasn’t an easy decision. When I took up this role I gave myself a timeline to achieve what I wanted to achieve as well as some guidelines. I always said to myself that If I started to not enjoy what I was doing, If it was creating too much stress, If I believe that my actions were no longer in the best interest of the community or If I felt I’ve achieved everything I wanted and that the Community needed new guidance – then I would retire. Over my time I believe I have always acted in the best interests of the Community and helped shape, direct and recover the community to a sustainable model. I’m extremely proud of every single person I’ve worked with and what we have achieved – Recovering from the original EG split which was on the verge of killing IG, bringing new gameplay and reshaping the Imperial server, expansion to our Clone Wars server and now soon to be our third Server. And would like to thank each of those individuals who toughed it out along the journey. I know I’m not an easy taskmaster but we got there in the end. Now after a discussion with Wolf it was an easy decision to name @Chopz as the new Community Manager who has some exciting directions for the community with his new Server. I have always seen Chopz as someone who has the same drive and passion and can’t wait to see what he does with IG. For those worrying, I won’t be leaving the community but simply stepping aside from day to day operations. I will still advise and assist the management team and anyone that seeks help in any capacity (It’s up to Wolf to decide what that role is). I have enjoyed every last minute in my roles on IG, but for now, from your retired Friendly Neighbourhood Community Manager this is… Goodbye, Farewell and Amen

    Hello IG Community I am happy to announce that the donation to the NSW fire services is half complete, we donated 700 dollars today with the rest of 468 dollars to be donated tomorrow the reason for it being split in half is simply because the fire services do not accept paypal donations through the website we used here And with that it only allows you to donate using credit/VISA so with that there is a default spending limit per day on my card that I did not know about which I need to go get rid of (whoops) however saying that I donated 700 dollars today from our fundraising and will donate the rest of 468 dollars tomorrow which brings us to a total of 1168 dollars raised to the fire services (remember that we already had x amount already donated this month before we decided to do the fundraising for the NSW so from the date it started to the end of the month we raised a total of 1168 dollars which is allot of money to be able to donate to the NSW firefighters especially now hearing that in the past couple of days they made an announcement that all NSW fires have been detained (not out but more under control) which is a massive effort by them. With that when I do the rest of the donation tomorrow I will edit this post to have another screenshot of the payment which should be in the afternoon so you will see receipts up there and not just 1. I would like to thank the whole IG community who donated to help support the NSW fire services, it was a massive effort especially from a Garry's Mod community and most of our donations are quite limited ingame so it was a massive effort to see that. In total since IG started we have raised over 3225.15 dollars from this community alone for the charities we do at Christmas. We are probably part of the only few across Garrysmod that do these type of fundraisers for Australia and I would like to thank everyone that has stuck with us to be able to do these types of things. Again thank you for sticking with IG to be able to do these types of things, We as a management thank you very much and we hope you have a good rest of the year. Regards IG Management Wolf

    Hey guys, gonna keep it short and sweet I've had an absolute blast here on IG. I've made a lot of friends and learned a lot from my almost 2 years of being here, we've had our ups and downs and I never left even when we were struggling. I've put a lot of time and effort into the server along with @Moose combined we've spent easily a thousand hours+ troubleshooting and creating content for you guys. I'm not going to be going into detail as to why I'm leaving, it's a personal choice that I would rather not share with the entire community. To further answer any questions regarding my position, no this is not temporary and I will not be coming back and no I am not going to another server to develop. I really love this community it's probably one of the longest I've been in and I hope when I check gametracker in a few months Imperial Gaming will still be the number one Australian server. There too many people to mention but I'll just note a few that I remember the most and had the most notable experiences with: @Moose@Wolf@Whitey@Chopz@Coach Frank@Carnifex@Pablo@Ridge@Imposing@Flipps If you're not on my list don't feel like I left you out, just remember the experiences we had like I said I'm not going to list everyone I've played with over the past 2 years.

    Que the Music Well, guys it may be a shock to some of you but the time has come for me to depart. I would like to thank you Imperial Gaming for giving me such an amazing time. It has been an awesome 8 months with you guys. I've Decided to leave because I now have a job and need to spend more time with Family and friends IRL rather then spending hours each day on Gmod as a whole, along the way I've made some friends and enemies on the server but, for those people that I've upset I want to take the time to say that I'm sorry for acting out badly and In a mingy way ( I did act mingy during my first couple of weeks on the server and some bits along the way ) for that I'm sorry. Honestly I've spent over 6 months actual playtime on Gmod over the past 2 and a Half years that is 3600 hours. I'll be gone from Gmod for a couple of months Idk how long but I will be around in discords and such if you want to have a chat, and if you want to play other games with me, I wont be on as much as a used to. I might come back in the future to see how everyone is going and the changes made. Thanks again for everything. <3 Over this last 8 or so months I've met some truly Amazing, funny and friendly people here they are. @Rivers You are a really good friend, always down to have a chat and to help out It was fun having you part of the squad when we were in DT. @Ragetank Thanks for being Inactive but mostly a good friend and commander of DT. @Galle @Tree @AusyTyranid @Vexer @marcus @Gatsby @Salsa @Smoke You guys will always be the best Co's of Shock and Riot you guys are LEGENDARY thanks for everything. @Excalibur and most of the Newish DT I will miss the times where If any DT brother had a sickness we were ok with killing each other to stop the spread and the constant "TDM" (RDM) Battles in ISB. @Shock and Riot Troopers I will miss working with you and Taze-ing mingy ST's. @Ape @PULSE @Parcy @Tinky You 4 will always be the funniest lads always doing stuff to make us Laugh. @Morgan @Fox @Lincoln @Trigon @Guskywalker @Marlu @Jesis @Gunjies @Planz Most of you guys have left or gone to Clone wars but man you were fun to be around. @Rickle My favorite mute. @Ubermolen your a good lad but god damn man you need to organize your pac3 groups they look like spiderwebs haha. @Auzii @Helsing @Cecil @Hammer @SCHEFF @Tonberry @Bailey @Emerald @Grif @Luigi @Sully @Wingza @Brass @Ramirez as for all of you, thanks so much for helping me with pac3 and being extremely friendly and really easy to talk to.<3 @Jman1308 @Kosmos @Flipps @Wolf @Whitey My Favorite Admins <3 Always made me Shit my pants in game because at any minute if I looked, walked, breathed or Said something in your direction something would go down. I'll miss the lot of you, and good luck for the future <3

    Good Afternoon everyone, So everyone is aware what's happening with Australia at the current moment, as of 24 DEC over 5 million hectares of Australia has burned and 9 people minimum gace died since September at the start of the summer fire. In New South Wales they have had 3.41m hectares , in the past few years we have had a total burned for the whole season of around 280, 000ha, this year alone it is around 3.41m in just NSW and we are only roughly halfway through the season so worse is to come. South Australia at 24 DEC it burned minimum 86 homes, over 500 outbuildings and burned through important crops and vineyards. With this the most important part of it all is the loss of lives from people not escaping intime, defending there homes and sadly one man lost his life in a vehicle crash in the fire zone. with this as a community we have decided that for the rest of January's donations all the money raised after 9pm AEST (So I can set all the paypal up) will be donated to the NSW rural Fire Service as they are one of the most on the frontline that need more equipment and every help they can get. I hope as a community we can branch together to help our fellow Australians out. I hope everyone stays safe during these times and hopefully this disaster ends soon, also as a show of respect please do not comment regarding political issues on this post/ingame due to there's a time and place for that and its not here at this moment, right now should be time to help each other out then in future there can be a time and place for political agendas. (By this I mean the whole Scott Morrison, parties etc) For those wondering I will be making the donation officially on the end of January/start of Feb here https://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/about-us/fundraising and for people to keep count, it is all money raised now after the 470 we have already raised this month for bills of servers and services (as I transfered that already into streamline this morning sorry) Thank you those that contribute and even those that think about or try to contribute towards this goal. Again I hope everyone stays safe and thank you for taking the time to read this post. Regards, Wolf Management Team Staff team IG Community

    Hello IG Community Its sad to say however due to a decision made by the Management Team and the Clone Wars Staff Team we have decided to turn off the Clone Wars server tonight. We will be saving all the databases, game files that are needed in case in future we believe we are ready to launch it again so it is still there but unfortunately at this time we believe that Clone Wars is not going the way we hoped for the long run due to reasons that have happened over the past 1-2 months. I would like to firstly apologise to all the Clone Wars players that have joined us over the past few Months, I am sorry that we did not achieve the goal we were aiming for and all the hard work that you put into the server was not achieved the way you wanted it. I would like to apologise to the staff that stuck through with it and tried their hardest to be an amazing team towards Clone Wars. Everyone's efforts did not go unnoticed and the Management Team wants to thank you for all your effort. The staff team has now all been transferred over to Imperial to positions that are fair on both the current Staff on Imperial and the Staff from Clone Wars. Pac users sadly will not be able to be transferred over to the Imperial Server due to limitations for users we can have in Pac as if we did not have these limitations the server would lag heavily and would be unplayable. To all players that have donated in the month of May will be available for a refund or a transfer of something equivalent on Imperial RP if you are still that role you donated for. For everyone who donated before the Month of May you are liable for a equivalent role on Imperial if its possible to give you something the same value or a tiny little bit more if we have a equivalent or close to payment role, if we can't find you a equivalent role on Imperial you are eligible for a refund only if you are still the same role you have donated for, this means if you donated for say Jedi and you are still Jedi you are able for a refund or equivalent role, if you donated for Jedi and have switched job then you are not up for a refund or equivalent role due to you have already left the role. For all refunds if you are able to from the above conditions, make a ticket in the donations store, for a equivalent transfer role to Imperial you are able to make a ticket in game by going @ Need admin or super to find an equivalent role (I am from CW). For users that have a RP rank, depending on the rank there might be a transfer, if you only play on Clone Wars and do not currently have a rank on Imperial then you are up for a transfer depending on rank to a rank in the Storm Trooper Regiment however you must message management through the @ function in game for you to be passed over as we must see your old rank and make a fair rank for you on Imperial. I would like to thank all Staff and users on Clone Wars for the past 3-4 months, you all did an amazing job. A Order 66 event will happen next weekend run by Welshy and that is when the server will be deleted from the dedi and saved to another database zipped. However after this post the server will be turned off until next weekend for the event. The crashes for Imperial and map change will be fixed by tomorrow once everything has been re-uploaded for the fixes, this means you will be able to change map on Imperial without crashes (may happen sometimes randomly but that is just gmod and should be just a 1 out of 8 map changes thing). Regards, Wolf

    I am making this on behalf of many community members, including many of the higher-ups in-game who have been stepped on by this Senior Admin. It is disappointing to see the recent actions that have been taking place regarding this situation and I regret to make this post but feel it is necessary. 15th of February, Ridge came into the control room for no reason at all, after one of my navy officers requested he left due to him not having a reason for entry he then went "AFK", what followed next is a display that Ridge has constantly allowed to take place within the community. He allowed his guards (a Storm Marine Private) to tell the Vice Admiral and Royal Representative to tell us to get out of the control room in a rude manner. Here is the context, after Ridge denying all requests to leave myself and Kendrick (Vice Admiral Terrinald and Royal Representative Gallius Rax) had to go into the control room to just to tell him to leave. Going back to the incident with the private, Ridge allowed him to rudely and what could be considered disorderly conduct to backtalk to very high in games ranks. After this situation had taken place he finally came back, after we told him to leave he replied, shut up boldly (referring to my character, Ternniald Screed). In addition, I was informed he jumped off the railings afterward, something that is normally a FailRP offense. This example has shown many issues with Ridge that seem to constantly reoccur, in roleplay he sets a very disgusting example for troopers. This ranges from calling higher ups names and treating them in a disrespectful manner to mistreating entire regiments, most of which tend to be ones that do not fall under his command. Why? Because he is a Senior Admin and very few people can do much about him. However, this factor also makes it particularly disappointing to see such displays from someone who should be leading our community. Most of the incidents, these just been a few of many, are all ones that stem from roleplay, when in-game instead of roleplaying as a leader, more often then not he sounds like he is speaking banter with his mates at a pub. It also seems he can go anywhere on the map without question and talk badly and rudely to anyone he wishes upon. On a daily basis, he makes many FailRP and Minge offenses, most of them are smaller, however, encouraging a non-Serious RP environment. As a Senior Admin, he cannot be stepped on by many, he is immune by all his in-game superiors who are not a higher rank than him in the staff structure. Has he done this on purpose? We do not know, however, it seems he can act in negative ways around the community without many to stop him. Thank you for reading - Qteks

    Hello IG Last year IG in December did hospital donations, in November I will be doing something different, this year we will be raising money to support a workmate of mine who is going through a time where he needs it most, recently his partner not naming names for privacy has had to go through treatment for Cancer and sadly passed away this week sadly. Sadly, in this case, they both have children, now for this month I have decided to make that all donations from November will go towards either the gofundme that was set up a while ago, or just transfer the money directly to his account so there no commission or hand it to him directly in cash so he is able to use it to support the family during these tough times. As a community, I would appreciate all the help we can get to achieve a goal of 2 thousand to match the hospital donation or hopefully achieve a bigger goal than that so the person can not have to worry about expenses and more spend time with the family. All the help we can get would be greatly appreciated and I will try to be outsourcing from different facilities to also help achieve our goal. I would like to say this, please donate for this cause, do not do it for myself, or any other member of this community, please do it to help a family that is going through something that no one should have to go through ever. Thank you for all those that do donate for this, Regards, Wolf

    The time once again has come for another Star Destroyer update. Many of you have heard whispers of possible changes over the past couple months, some true, some false. So in addition to sharing your opinion and future suggestions, let me know if you've heard other changes that aren't in the post and i'd be happy to comment on whether they are also in the update, scheduled for a future update or not happening at all. With that said, this time round, most of the changes have occurred inside the ISD (unlike the previous update with the addition of the snow planet and new hyperspace locations). Like always, if you’re still hungry for more screenshots check out Lord Trilobites profile https://steamcommunity.com/id/lordtrilobite/screenshots/ Major Changes: Recruit Room Moved From its current position on the third floor (deck 6), the recruit room will be moved close to shock and riot bunks (deck 3). This new area will feature more wall space for signs, a larger open area in the middle, a viewing room for commanders and most importantly a door to keep out all the filthy recruits from the luxuries of the ISD. The new spawn will be accessible from two points; one in the middle of the stairs near the tram (deck 2) and the other near the assassination and kidnapping billboard (deck 3). Unfortunately, the current spawn will be removed as the map is nearing its limits. Security Deck Rework The Brig has been moved down the hall walkway past the maintenance entry. There will also be a torture/interrogation room that branches off from the center consoles in the brig. With the move, the area outside the brig and the brig itself will be easier to defend as there will only be one entry point and shock/riot bunks will be slightly closer. Minor Changes: New Sensor Array and Destructible Shield Domes Replacing the current sensor array above the bridge will be a new, cleaner model. The shield domes will also be destructible like the old domes a couple of updates ago but will be harder to destroy. Navy Lift Pads Due to the aging navy personnel, new lift pads have been installed to allow for ease of access between the main deck and the pit. IHC Lighting Fixed Thanks to some optimising of the imperial budget, the ISD can now afford to fully light the old IHC offices. Additional Engine Room Features There will now be a retractable bridge connecting the reactor console to the entrance. The lasers underneath the reactor will be controlled by the two panels on the side. (If the reactor is off they will also be off but once the reactor has been restarted the lasers will need to be turned on manually). Various interactive panels and buttons for maintenance.

    I do not want a person that has fun sending 11-year-olds sexual images in my community this is sick and revolting, you are Community Banned for life to protect the youth we have on the server. You will not be able to place a unban appeal as I don't know what else you have sent to youth, however, this is disgusting and you should rethink your life choices. If I do hear of you trying to do anything to any youth in my community I will personally get your personal information and hand it into the authorities with the images we have been supplied. You are the first person I have ever had to ban for these reasons and you are never ever welcome back into IG, I will also be sending this information to Community owners I know on gmod so they are aware of who you are along with your SteamID's and other alternatives accounts you have.

    Good Evening Imperial Gaming, I would just like to let you know that today my Paypal account was finally unlocked and limitations removed after months... Meaning Paypal no longer think I'm a Terrorist. As today is May 4th we decided to finally go ahead with a massive performance upgrade on the server and the game mode. With this, I thought it was the best time to make the long overdue donation. As of only moments ago, We the community have officially donated $2000 dollars to the Children's Hospital Foundation after all your amazing fundraising work from Community members past and present. The Children’s Hospital Foundation helps sick kids today and tomorrow by funding life-saving medical research, investing in vital new equipment, and providing comfort, entertainment, support and care for children and their families. Their incredible volunteers are there to support children in the hospital, helping them to laugh and smile, get better and go home with their families. I can not think of a better organisation to donate towards. If you want any further information about the foundation or if you want to make your own personal donation then head over to https://www.childrens.health.qld.gov.au/foundation/ I hope you enjoy the update's to the server and everything that is being changed around the community. I hope we can all continue to work together to increase the experience for all. Have a great day, Wolf

    Hello IG community Welcome to the famous post that was supposed to be out yesterday however as you know I am a very busy man, Just kidding I just got a bit overwhelmed in playing some other games with friends that it slipped my mind so I apologize for that. Now let's get down to business, I would like to first start this off by saying a massive thank you to our community for 2 years, I never thought I would still be playing Garry's Mod two years ago let alone being where I am now in one of the best communities in Australia. We have had our hardships in the community, I have had some arguments, made friends and lost friends through IG especially at the end of February with the incidents regarding the community being split in half, backstabbing and the rumours made up about myself and IG attempting to drag it through the mud. However, luckily to the players, staff and members that stuck with us through it all, I can gladly say that IG is one of the best communities I have ever been a part of. It was a very hard time for me however due to the players, members and especially the staff I was able to keep my chin up and push through it all with you and get the community back to where we were before all the incidents. In saying this I do have to thank 1 person who made this all possible, the players and staff did play a massive role in supporting IG however 1 person I believe was the striving force and constant success was Whitey. Whitey helped and supported not just myself but IG through its hardest time, continuing to push the community to new heights and organising IG to be what it is today, I can fully say that without Whitey help, I believe all our efforts would not have been enough. So I would like to thank you, seriously thank you so much for supporting IG through that time and spending so much effort and time helping it strive back up. Now to get to the more updates that IG will be striving for in the coming year, the past few months have been big for IG with a lot of updates and content being added to the server weekly all thanks to the Developers, past and present such as Moose, Martibo, Kumo, Pablo, Junior Developers and Junior Graphic Designers, Recently the sickness and virus script was added which added more extensive roleplay to medics and on request by players we have also added the vaccine's in place so players can spend credits so they don't get affected for x amount of hours. However soon a command will also be implemented to hide everything on the HUd excluding the Defcon level, the reason Defcon will be staying is simply so no one can use the excuse oh sorry I didn't realise as my hud was off that it's Defcon 1-5. SO I'm sorry for those who will still get a bit triggered by everything but the Defcon level being turned off but it is to save a lot of headaches and stop minges. We will also be looking at adding blackjack and everyone's favourite UNO in the upcoming future, just so I can watch everyone's friendships be destroyed in a classic game of UNO. In future IG will be striving to keep bringing out new content for our server and hopefully, this content will continue to excite all players and members, we are also working on a new big project for IG, it is [REDACTED] Project: R. The reason I will not be announcing what we are working on is simply because there's a lot of people out there that like to copy and until Project R is near complete we will not be giving out any information. We are also working on another [REDACTED] to future-proof IG for the upcoming future in case something happens so players will continue to enjoy and have a community to game with their friends. There will be more updates in store for the upcoming weeks, minor bug fixes from the new content and we will continue to look for more content from different sources to add to the community as well. That is all I can tell to the community regarding upcoming changes however I would like to say that these projects that we are currently working on we believe will be a massive hit for Imperial gaming community and we believe it will a starting point for IG to be able to perform to what it should be. Again I would like to thank everyone for there contributed efforts to support IG and a big thank you for the past 2 years of success and I cannot wait to see what next year has in store for IG as a whole. Regards, Wolf Community Owner

    Good Morning (or afternoon) Imperial Gaming Members, Recent events have caused me to write this post in response to questions our members have expressed concern over to myself and the management team. Firstly, Empire Gaming is not part of Imperial Gaming. All persons who are caught advertising, poaching players, or disrespecting/shittalking Imperial Gaming members no matter what In Character or Out of Character positions they have will all face the same punishments. Recently the Imperial Gaming Teamspeak was, for short period of time, ddos'd. After extensive investigation and communication with our service provider and other sources along with prepetraiting pictures, it has been determined that an individual decided to attack our teamspeak over a ban. Furthermore, there have been many reports received by myself and the management team from many Imperial Gaming Community members. These reports have been consisting of abuse, advertising, poaching players, or disrespecting/shittalking. An example of this is from a person who has been abused by members of the Empire Gaming Community for turning down staff on the Empire Gaming Server and giving out information. Imperial Gaming has made it very clear that abuse of this nature will not be tolerated and it is tragic to see that people have accused Imperial Gaming of such outlandish accusations of abuse, yet before Empire Gaming is even officially released these actions are taking place. The information that this player was accused of telling me I had already been made aware of by other sources and the player had in fact told me nothing in relation to the information he was accused of sharing. These actions by members of the Empire Gaming Community are disappointing and it is regretful to see that it is coming from members of the Empire Gaming Community that are set to be staff on release. Another example of the reports that we have been constantly getting from players on the server is players who have said they are with/from the Empire Gaming Community coming onto the Imperial Gaming server to causing trouble. There have been reports of consistent minging, failrp, advertising and poaching players. This is hard for myself as the Imperial Gaming Community Owner and our Staff Team to see people who we considered friends coming onto the server and committing such actions which are clearly and bluntly against the server rules. This is made even worse by the Imperial Gaming Community having done nothing to provoke or attack the Empire Gaming Community like they have plundered and attack the Imperial Gaming Community. Additionally, people have been calling for change. Imperial Gaming has always been a server for the people by the people. One of the newest members of the Imperial Gaming Management team has been a result of that. Whitey was welcomed a few days ago up to the senior management team. Whitey is the dealing with all community relations for Imperial Gaming and this promotion was well deserved. So far all the feedback from the community has been extremely positive and supportive of this decision. Whitey has been a great member of the community with a wise, trusted voice and is a trusted, approachable person for the community. For any players that are afraid to bring for reports or anything else related to the server, they are able to go to Whitey as a trusted friend and member of the Community. For all members of the Community; we do not restrict members from enjoying both the Imperial Gaming Server and other non-Imperial Gaming Owned Servers, as long as all rules while in Imperial Gaming Owned Servers are followed. In regards to Imperial Gaming Staff Team members, the rule in relation to accepting staff positions on additional servers still stands, and is considered to be inappropriate. Imperial Gaming has been a community that started small at 40 slots working its way up to 128 slots with our custom gamemode. Imperial Gaming prides itself on creating a friendly, enjoyable community based environment for all ages. With a diverse group of active players, our staff team is dedicated to ensure you have the best role-playing experience possible, keeping us online 24/7. We provide a place for members of the Steam community to come together and play games together in a fun & safe environment. We have been around for 15 months and we will continue to host the best Star Wars Imperial RP Server on Garry’s Mod and remain the number 1 server in Australian and on of the top 20 in the world at our peaks. Thank you for taking the time to read this. For all those supporting Imperial Gaming thank you for your continued support. Please Feel free to contact our Community Relations person, Whitey with any other reports or enquiries. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to seeing where we take the bright future of Imperial Gaming.

    Started to wonder how insane the films would get if the server was "in" them, here is the end result - Depending on how high your volume is, might want to turn it down for this one - A few short clips from the movies, just chucked in random encounters from the server. Enjoy! IG in the Star Wars Movies (Dubbed).mp4

    So over the past month I have been deciding on what we could do as a community with helping others in need during the Christmas time, some thoughts that went through my head were donating money towards helping poor people on the street buying them blankets and essentials, Donating towards a country in need however one idea which when I pitched towards the Staff Team really loved was donating money towards the Royal Children's Hospital to buy the sick children who cannot be home for Christmas some presents so they do not get to miss out of the fun and joy of Christmas. The way it will work is that every donation we make after the $500 goal amount (To pay for the Dedicated Box and teamspeak) will be donated before Christmas to the Royal Children's Hospital to buy the Children presents for Christmas Day. This will occur on the 1st of December at 12:00am, I will also be changing the store to have a new item on it which instead of it being "Contribute towards the community/server" it will instead say "Contribute towards Royal Children's Hospital" as well incase you do not want to buy anything so you cans till contribute towards buying presents for the children. I honestly would like to at least make 1.2 grand possible (Not including the $500 goal amount) to donate towards so we can help allot of children during Christmas Time. I hope as a community we will hit this goal and help make there Christmas enjoyable. Regards, Wolf

    I don’t know how to start this… I’ll give it a good try, I have decided to resign and leave Imperial Gaming due to me wanting to do my best in schooling for my final year and to help with my mental issues. This was not an easy decision that I made but I feel was the right decision. It’s difficult to find the words to describe my experience whilst playing on Imperial Gaming for the past 3 years but all I can say is that it was extremely enjoyable, fun and filled with many many good memories. Every time I logged into the server I never knew what was going to happen, which filled me with excitement thus causing me to want to play more. Imperial Gaming has helped me grow as a person and I will never forget that. I’d like to thank all of the Management Team, Staff Team and everyone else who I have come in contact with whether if I was in character, out of character and/or in Teamspeak with, you all made my day just that bit better and I thank you for that. I'd like to give a few honourable mentions to a few people that stood out for me, but I know I can’t get them all since there were many others. @Cody You were the one that really pushed me further than I would have ever imagined I’d go, I will never forget you giving me Chimaera Squad CO and helping me out when I needed it in the Staff Team. I’ll one day be better at Supreme Commander Foraged Alliance than you @Jman1308 You have been here with me since day 1, I remember when you first got Trial Moderator in 2017 when I was Moderator, I always knew you would reach higher than me You were a good friend and I hope to see you in the future when I come back if I come back. @Rad_Cop When I saw NHC it was only you and I saw a chance of me getting in there to help you so I decided to do it and also to allow Tank and Loki to get into AHC at the same time. I have never regretted the choice of transferring into NHC. You, @Horus1 and @Cure made my time in NHC very enjoyable and I will never forget you guys. @Tinky You were a real influence of me and have shown me many many things that I’ll never forget, you are hands down one of the best commanders I served with in all my time on Imperial Gaming, I’m going to miss you. @Cecil You were a very good Event Master and Manager and it has been a pleasure serving under you. I will be forever grateful for the many opportunities you gave whilst serving in the Staff Team. Thanks for all you've done. @zaspan You were a very good Sith, Staff Manager and Server Manager, I hope you continue to be a great Management member. Thanks for all you've done. @Delta You are and will always be my number one sandy boi, I hope to see you higher up in the ranks when I come back. @Hammer @Lucky You two allowed me entre to AHC which was one of my goals for the longest period of time on Imperial Gaming. Thank you for that and being lads the whole way through. @Wolf @Kosmos For creating the server that we all play on There are obviously many more I’d like to thank, but if I did everyone this post would take years to read. I’ll be back one day <3

    Hey All, This is a post I never wanted to make and never wanted to even think about making but as the title of this post suggests I have decided to part ways with the server. I have been apart of this community since June 2017 and since then have made so many friendships and memories whilst treating the community as my second home as well as putting 2352 hours into server. But the time has come where my time is being consumed with completing Year 12, working and getting my mental and physical health in a better place so I may start thinking about my future. Because of this I have painfully decided to step down from all my server roles, those being the Staff Team, Media Team, Support Team and Regional Government. I thank everyone who gave me the chance to be in those positions and all those who helped me throughout my time on the server, I have poured my heart and soul into these positions and I hope I have at least helped someone by doing so. Now this is the part where I am supposed to tag everyone who has helped me or made an impact on me over my time within the community but to be honest if I were to do that we would be hear for hours, So instead I would like to thank you all as you all have helped me in one way or another regardless of whether we have agreed or disagreed on things in the past. I hope to return in the future once I am in a better place in life and for now I will just remain somewhat active on the forums. Regards, Sully

    Thank You For The Time, I as of right now will be stepping down from all roles within game and within the Staff Team, I have been through a lot with this community and its hard for me to wright this. I honestly have been becoming bored of GMOD, but there are other factors that weight into this decision i have made, If you would like to know message me on the forums. Couple of people that i think need a mention: @Kosmos - You made this community that i got myself hooked on and i thank you for all the fun times that have been as well as the fun times to come. @Martibo - As mentioned before in another post, I joined the community because you were playing it, I dont know how we were friends on steam but if i didnt join i wouldnt have found this amazing community. @Mauler - Man'o'Man Mauler legit the best guy i have ever met, You made my day everyday and i miss not talking to you (We should hangout again) @Aphrodite / @Jeb / @Rivers - You guys were amazing people that i loved talking to all day. @Rickle - Rickle you are an amazing mute, hopefully you get your promotion soon you deserve it!! #PromoteMingeRickle There are a lot of people that impacted my time on the server and I thank you for that, I will come back to the server from time to time as well as TS so if you see me say Hi Thanks ANiX

    Dear Members of the Community, Who or what is Project R? The title says it all doesn’t it? And instead of going on and on for paragraphs I will make it easier on you and get down to business. But first please watch the following video we have prepared for you so you can see exactly what the management team has been up to for the past month late into the night after hours. For all the brainstorms you have all had trying to figure out the answer… The answer is Project Republic. What does this mean? No we aren’t switching the server to the Clone Wars Era, but instead expanding to a second server to allow the IG community to grow along with the roleplay experiences and opportunities we offer to all of you. The reason we have decided to go this way is simply the past two years has been great for IG, even with the ups and downs we have all been through together, but our server has reached limits with content and value. We have also seen dedicated members become worn out and tired of the Imperial Era after 2 Years but stay because of the community we have all created together. So after much discussion and labour we have decided to expand to give something new to our old members who love what Imperial gaming has to offer and to welcome new players that prefer Clone Wars over the Imperial Era. We also hope that having two servers as part of this community will allow our members different opportunities playing different characters on a community you love and enjoy. Now as I have stated Imperial RP will still be here, we are just expanding Imperial Gaming into other Eras to try create a bigger community for more players to enjoy. We have worked on this gamemode for the past month and I hope that it is something that everyone's gets to enjoy and like. As you know IG has a solid foundation that we have continued to develop on that has always given it a unique feel and handles well for all users. And we hope what we deliver here is exactly the same. Now we would like this to be made clear that Imperial RP is still our main priority with such things as content, updates and playerbase, however, as it stands we currently have teams working on each server to make sure they both have the love and support they to create and deliver a great RP experience for all. We also would like to make sure that ImperialRP stays healthy and secure with a player base, so if Imperial RP starts to struggle then Clone Wars RP will be shut down as Imperial has got us where we are today. Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s time to expand… And I hope you can all join us on the journey that waits before us. Signed, Wolf

    Welp, you should’ve seen this one coming. For those of you who aren’t able to read or are related to Space Mexicans, I’ll make this short as I’m going to go into a whole bunch of explanations and thanks messages to a lot of people. Still try to read through all of this properly, as I didn’t write out all this shit just for you to not read it plebs. So yeah, much like a lot of my mates on the server this time last year (and at other points throughout the year) for similar reasons, I’m leaving IG. I’ve had a lot of good times. Made lots of memes, achieved things I never thought I would be able to do in this game. I created a sub-regiment, I rebuilt one of the hardest regiments to build from the ground up, I became a General (something that was thought impossible at the time) and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting/helping/playing with some good people. But, as I kind of referenced to on a certain someone’s goodbye post around 10-12 months ago, it’s my time. Unfortunately everything must come to an end. I’ve got nothing left to prove, nothing left to achieve, and the issues I have around here have become too much. I haven’t really hid my issues with management around the joint (had to put joint in here somewhere). If you’ve been around long enough and listened to what I’ve said, you’d know what those issues are. The final nail in the coffin for me though was an event that happened recently. Not really going to get into it, as I asked some friends for advice before making this and one of them said, and I quote: “Yeah, na.” You know who you are, keep being a legend. That and me ranting/creating drama isn’t what this post is about, nor is it how I want to go out. That being said, I harbor no hard feelings towards the overall community, those who have helped me in the past and those who have nothing to do with the issues I have. I have a lot of friends here still and outside of the negativity sort of at the start of this post, I would like to leave on somewhat good terms. And you never know, I might come back once things have changed enough. I’ve had the opportunity to be accepted here after some rocky history in the SWRP community, and I won’t forget that any time soon. Jesus, all that was a little heavy… Now there’s a few people I’d like to thank and I genuinely want to thank them, as I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in on the server and I wouldn’t have had as great of a time as I’ve had without ‘em. I also sort of wouldn’t have a grown a bit as a person without them. Which for me is at least something to get out of a video game. First I’d like to thank @Whitey. I didn’t exactly (at any point) make your job easy, but I thank you for everything you’ve done around the joint. Most importantly for that chat we had after Hornet was promoted. I know this is going to sound cringey as fuck (but let’s face it, making a big post like this was cringey in the first place over a SWRP server), but that chat meant a lot. So thanks. Make sure you become Tarkin again at least one more time though, because you’re the OG. Next I’d like to thank @Chopz (we’re starting off this list by staff rank for some reason). You made life bearable as 996 commander and the short time you were Grand General was one of the highlights of my time as a General… It made the top twenty . But in all seriousness, my job got a lot easier with you around. You're also a good bloke. Next I’d like to thank Alex and Department. You guys are some of the best troopers I’ve met during my 5 years (almost) of playing this game mode and you guys were there at the hard times, helping me out when needed. - @Department you’ve always been a great bloke and a great commanding officer. You were there during the O’Hare times and came out better for it. You are, and have been for some time, the longest serving Stormtrooper. And although you were always a little cold, you’re a good bloke. Good luck with the independent chain of command. - @Alex, can’t really say too much without feeling the feels. You’ve been there since the Stormtroopers were treated like garbage, and have been around since… Even when your PC exploded, died, whatever the hell happened over 10,000 times. You might never become a general, but you’re been one hell of a trooper. Don’t forget that. Remember every lesson I taught you, as you’re going to need it moving forward. Trust me on that. After that, I have to thank @Regret. Never have I met someone who picked up the art of commanding to the degree that you did. You made a turbulent time during the life of the ST’s a lot more stable, which allowed me to focus on other regiments. You’re also a top bloke. You may never read this, as I don’t know if you check the forums, but you don’t need any more praise from me. Since I’m still thinking of names (I really should’ve written a list for this, but too late for that) I’d like to thank @Hammer, for being there as the gatekeeper of IHC HQ. You dealt with a lot of crap, heard a lot of my shit, but you never let that affect the job. I hope, for the players of the server, you can become the less controversial, less getting-people-pissed-off version of me. Or at least replace me in terms of the work I managed to do. I wish you all the best. Next I’d like thank @SCHEFF. Just for being one of those people from back in the day, becoming the cornerstone of MHC and just being a general ear to talk to. Although we didn’t start off on the best of terms, you’ve definitely become one of those people I trust. Hope you and the rest of Widow Squad continue to improve Widow Squad and do the things that I couldn’t as commander. (Fuck this is a lot of thank you’s) Next up is @Corvo, @Shader, @Acab, @Devo and @NatiionZ. You guys have sort of rebuilt a regiment, making improvements around the joint as you see problems. I hope you continue this progress, as I might be back someday and I’d like to see how you’ve done. If you let Widow Squad or the ST’s die, I’ll beat up ya nan (that was referred to all of you). Good luck. (Really have to make these quick now) Next is @Jman1308, because Jman is a lad. @Rickle, because Rickle Rick. @Moose for that chat we had, hope you make the Generals great for the first time. @Medusa for helping me become a better commander. I don’t know if she’ll ever get this, but thanks. All involved with my promotion to Major General. All involved with not getting me demoted during the brigade shit. All involved with not getting me demoted period (I’m guessing my recent demotion wasn’t the only time I’ve been up for it). Anyone who I didn’t mention who has either helped me along the way, or helped me without me knowing. All ST’s past and present. That includes Widow Squad by the way . Now for anyone who isn’t mentioned, or a part of these groups mentioned, who did something for me or we worked together. Thank you. I’m sorry that you weren’t mentioned, but I’ve been playing on this server for almost two years, I forget people all the time. Now as for what’s next? Eh, I don’t even know that. I’ve basically done everything you can in gaming at this point. Might finally finish Undertale? Lol. But in all seriousness, I plan on going back to making videos (which you can see here: https://goo.gl/5PuYvA). Link might get removed due to advertising rules (I’ve been here for almost two years and still don’t know the rules 100%), so add me on Steam at; Stevo Jenkins if you want a link if it’s not there. Haven’t done a video in a while, looking forward to do them again. To the Stormtroopers and Widow Squad If you ever need help or you’re in a shit situation with either regiment, call me and I will help. I will always be there to help you if I can, you can always count on that. Finally, that’s pretty much it from me. I don’t have any more to say and, if I do, I’ll say it some people in person. I wish this community all the best moving forward, and I hope everyone has a great Christmas. Make sure you value your time with your family, as there are people out there with none or in a bad situation. Basically what I’m saying is: go give some money to charity or some shit ya cheapskate. Adopt a child damn it! I don’t care if you’re only twelve years old. Alright, time to end this one. See ya’s later. Cheers Brigadier Stevo.

    As most of the community already knows, we recently purchased a new dedicated server to host our game servers off of, whilst we sacrificed a bit of clock speed on the CPU for a lot more RAM, a newer generation processor and more storage space, aswell as a more trusted hosting provider, you have probably wondered why it has taken so long to transfer over. We simply aimed to make the transfer experience from the old dedicated server to the newer dedicated server as optimal as possible with many changes to improve your experience on the server. Please see all changes below, we hope you enjoy. NOTE: With the move to the new dedicated server some of your spreadsheets may break depending on how you set them up, the new server ip is no longer This changelog will also be formatted differently compared to the usual (new/updated/removed) due to the nature of most of the changes. Changes New HUD Whilst many people liked the sci-fi feel of the current holo-hud and its customisable nature we have opted to introduce a new HUD which will ideally be as minimal as possible, increase performance (a LOT) and be mainstreamed (most people should like it). Big thank you to @Auzii and the Graphics Team for the unique icons that accompany the hud. Quest System Changes Its been a nice run with the quest system, as of server release the Quest System will be wiped. Skills are now broken down into 3 branches (Combat, Profit, Utility) - these branches have skills according to their category Some quests have been altered to make easier/harder or changed to effectively balance quest completion - find out these in games Credit Changes An Armoury NPC is now available in the ILC - you may spend your credits to buy a weapon This consists of a large payment (to buy the weapon), you then need to deploy the weapon by paying a smaller fee per life. Food System Hunger and Thirst have been added, whilst you do take damage when you hit 0 food/thirst it takes a VERY long time, and therefore will not interfere extremely with your experience Food NPC and entities will be added to increase mess hall RP - some foods replenish more hunger/thirst and some may give special effects in the future. Ammunition Crate You may now purchase ammunition from the crates in the ILC, heavy's may now also drop ammo boxes New Disease System The old disease system was made a long time ago and was one of my first scripts ever made, hence why it was subpar to the quality we wanted. We have implemented and heavily adjusted the Zero's GenLab medical system. It is much more realistic, with little performance impact and should increase roleplay throughout the server thoroughly. (https://www.gmodstore.com/market/view/zero-s-genlab-disease-script for more information) Economy We are trying our best to establish an economy that is as real to life as possible, as well as enjoyable to experience. This links to the Credit Changes previously mentioned Salary has been added - You will now receive paychecks based on your clearance for serving the empire (a passive way to gain credits) We have lots in plan for the near future to further this economy system, which mirror real world economies MySQL Gamemode Backend change to how data storing is done, now being stored externally on a MySQL server, this way we can develop applications in the future to interact with in-game data such as Regiments/Ranks/UTime etc. Keycard Improvements The way keycards are done on the backend is greatly improved, this may have a significant performance improvement The new way this is achieved also adds versatility, including custom keycards and are very easy to change. Pilot Licenses The out of date Pilot License menu has been updated to be modular, allowing for pilot licenses to be added on top of each other, rather than listing every possible combination on the menu. There has also been some slight changes to optimize performance based on this system Precaching Precaching has been removed and now only occurs on server startup, whilst this may increase server startup times by a minute or two, we believe this is a lot better for the server than interrupting roleplay for 30 minutes. Some other changes have also been made to stop Precaching from occuring on map changes when it is not needed Pointshop Sell Dialog Self-explanatory to stop people from "accidentally selling" their items, there is now a prompt to double check you want to sell the item. There will now be no leeway if you accidentally sell your item, we will not return it to you. Net Message Handler (EXPERIMENTAL) Should stop most net-based lag exploits, however this is heavily untested PAC3 PAC3 has been updated to the latest version, this should fix many bugs aswell as allow for many new features, we hope you enjoy pac users. TFA Changes Updated TFA reworked weapons (resolving missing models) Fixed TFA grenades Changes to the backend to ideally increase performance (a lot) Other Changes Here you will find a list of other changes which don't really justify their own category Useless/unused content removed from content pack and server Fixed dropships causing weird behaviour when passengers/pilots would exit Updated Thermal FLIR PermaProps optimized - you may notice many perma props have been deleted, we have done this unbiasly to all regiments and areas around the ships to reduce loading and lag. This should not compromise roleplay at all. !swap models updated, more regiments should have models available to them. Implementation of different Ammo Types New Jumptrooper models and Jetpack Swep Coming Soon Ideally, we would've implemented all of the features that will be mentioned below before we released the server however, our development team clearly is not big enough and therefore it would've delayed release even further, which we do not want to do. Here is a list of soon to come changes (over the next few weeks) Heavy/Support Functionality Rather than having a completely seperate rank in the regiment (requiring ranks to be stored in the players name) heavy and support will be handled differently, allowing for people to properly hold ranks, as well as be a heavy/support Mission System Overhaul We aim to overhaul and fix the mission system to ensure it matches with the economy changes we have implemented this change log, aswell as fix any broken missions (I know there is a lot) and ideally revamp and breath life back into the system. Bug Report Review We have heard your bug reports and we greatly appreciate you sending these in, they are unfortunately were not our priority and therefore we haven't gotten around to the non-vital ones. They will be adhered to shortly Find Server Bottlenecks This will be a long and tedious process to find specifically what addons tax the server the most on startup, we unfortunately did not have the time to do this during the development stage. Mass-Optimization Lots of backend stuff needs to be done, including removal of thousands of lines of code and optimising thousands of lines of code in order to make the server playable, we assure you we are trying our best, and we promise you will see a noticeable improvement of server performance throughout the next few months. Finally, I would like to thank @Ragetank, @|Stryker| and the rest of the Development Team who assisted with this project aswell as @Auzii, @Atlas and the rest of the Graphics Team. None of this would of been possible without you all. Thank you for reading, have fun.

    Next installment of clips is out. I definitely feel as though I've improved with editing, this one didn't take nearly as long to edit as the last. This one also goes for longer even though it felt like I had less footage, and after some feedback, I think people would rather see the video focused more on funny moments rather than just random noises and goofy sounds. Hopefully you enjoy this one as much as the last! Please don't be afraid to comment any criticism as it really helps me know what you want to see more of!

    NOTE: When reading our changelogs keep in mind our developers have spent hours creating this custom content for you, so do show us support and provide any feedback about what we are making. If your intentions are to take our content Ideas and put it on your server and or steal images/icons from this post then it shows how low some communities are going just to get an edge on us. Added Content 3D/2D Billboards for Booking system + Menu to edit footer text This integrates with our booking system and updates live to all billboards on the server! Defcon Controls These controls can be used by any Navy personnel or staff members to change the current DEFCON level. Titles within keycards I've currently made it so people can dynamically be added to the custom TI title within the keycard system players can easily be added and removed from this system, derma and other custom titles will be created in the coming month. Temporary Job set We will soon be making this available to Event Masters, this command allows staff members to keep track of event characters regiments by only temporarily setting them to a role. This will stop players from being assigned back to ranks they didn't have beforehand. This is also useful as it allows staff to easily set and remove the role from multiple people at once. AOS System Multi line coloured text has been added to our AOS system to easily identify who the PLAYER IS, REASON and LOCATION. Pointshop PAC3 scaling has been added to the pointshop it will soon be available to certain regiments for free Vote Display Personally I have found it weird that we couldn't see how many people actually voted so now I have made it so we can see how many people voted and voted for what so when we do map changes we can be sure how many people actually want to go. Adminpopups (Staff Only) Staff can now post support tickets of their own if they need help with sits or events. Scoreboard Update I have updated the logo so it fits better and is the new logo, I have also added current amount of staff online to the scoreboard Commands /setspawn <spawn_name> Overrides Default spawn <spawn_name> = Default to set default spawn for all players. /delspawn <spawn_name> Deletes regiment spawn and spawns player at default spawn or map spawn if not specified. /jtemp_set <player_name> <index_of_job> Sets a players temporary job /jtemp_rem <player_name> Removes a players temporary job @ !support <message> Sends a support message to other staff members Updated Content Pointshop Due to popular demand, the Pulse cannon price was reduced from 800,000 credits to 400,000 credits. Loading Screen Some of you may have noticed the loading screen, I have edited the PHP and added more slots to put important staff on our loading screen to give these people credit for the work they do for our server. Obviously, I can't put the whole staff team on there this is mainly just for the heads of departments etc. Upcoming Content Event Comms System When Typing staff will have this option above their scoreboard, can be toggled on and off. Basically adds a custom message to the chatbox for event purposes AOS Menu We are going to be updating the AOS Menu soon due to some re-occurring bugs with the current Derma. Graphic Design Team Teaser Some Teaser logos that have been created for our new menu by @Channingw Special thanks to the following people for making this month's updates possible @Moose@Kumo@Goliath@Channingw

    I am well aware I made one of these already however that was not a permanent thing and almost acted like an LOA of sorts. Around about in February my older brother sustained quite a traumatic injury linking to mental health issues in which he self amputated his hand with a drop saw at his home. Since then he went through a lot of recovery and has been deemed safe to come out of the hospital however he is currently unable to work or drive or do much as a matter of fact and as such he's going to be living with myself and my girlfriend for quite an extended period of time as I have no other family in Auckland to help him. as a whole Im taking a complete step away from the community and focusing on my real life especially since work is coming back around the corner after lockdown. As I mentioned before my prior post about leaving the community as I discussed privately with higher management was more of an LOA to deal with the sudden situation of my brother, and when it was dealt with I continued my time on the server and community. Overall I've had quite a fun time with the community and I probably wont ever be back, Garry's Mod has lost it's touch with me and I don't really see it going anywhere longterm either. with work on the horizon I will practically lose all free time to even dedicate time of any sort to any community. I had a lot of fun times with the community and achieved a lot of stuff during my time. Clone Wars treated me well and I will miss all the lads that were involved with it, you know who you are. Over the next week or two before work starts up i'll compile every model I managed to finish and put them into a pack and upload them to the steam workshop if anyone cares. Once again Mongo signing off for one last time.

    WARNING - This content contains information regarding depression and suicide. Do not read it if you are uncomfortable with that. Hi everyone, I write this post whilst sitting at my computer, drinking, listening to music and lying to the people talking to me by telling them that I am okay. I'm not. I haven't been okay for months now, and have actually been stuck in the slump that is the lowest point I've ever fallen to in my life. Some of you know me, some of you don't. I'm sorry if this upsets some of you, or if, as I've been going through this, I've been distant or even ignored some of you. It hasn't been my intention to sabotage any friendships I've made or make anyone feel any less of a fiend to me than they are. I'm 24 years old, currently live in a share house with another friend. have been going to counselling for about the last 2 months, sold 2 of my cars, my motorbike, collectible swords and armors just to make sure i can keep paying rent because i'm newly unemployed, recently split with my partner of over 5 years and tried to end my own life 4 times within the last 2 months. The spoiler below has more in-depth details of what I've done and gone through over the past while. Only read it if you are comfortable doing so. Some of you might be asking yourselves why i'm writing something like this, hell, i'm asking myself the same question right now. But, in the time it's taken me to write this I've changed from being an absolute mess and wanting to end myself to being okay, and wanting to try and reach out to others who might feel the same sometimes. It's hard to find a reason to get out of bed, it's hard to talk to people, it's hard to even leave the house or hang out with friends and family, it's hard to open up and start conversations about the things we go through and I hate that I can't do it enough. I hate that I can't talk to my friends and family about how I feel because every time i'm asked how i'm going I lie through my teeth and make up some bullsh*t "good" things that have been happening to me just to put their minds at ease and not have them worry about me. Family and friends reach out for a reason, and it's NEVER too much of a problem to talk to them about your issues or just about how you're feeling. True friends and family are never going to turn you away, or lose interest in what you are saying if you actually tell them the truth. You're never a "bother" for them, it's never "nothing" to have suicidal thoughts or depression constantly. You're no less of a "man/woman" for asking for help. I disgustingly forgot all of these things, which I preached them to myself 7 years ago after I lost a friend to suicide. He would always tell us he was okay and we would believe him, and would always seem it, on the outside. He was at my house one night, hanging out with myself and a few more friends, and then when he and another friend walked back to their houses, it was the last time anyone ever saw him alive. He was found 4 days later in a sewer drain, dead. He had gone to an outdoor camping store and bought himself a chair and some canisters of a gas, gassed himself in the chair next to the storm drain and presumably fallen into it. This post is far from perfect, and there is still so much more I just can't put into words or form into a sentence, but, I just want everyone reading this to know that there is still light at the end of that tunnel, I know it's near impossible to tell sometimes, believe me, but it is there. There are ALWAYS people available to talk to, I myself am definitely included no matter if we've spoken before or not, and getting help is not shameful or weak, it's actually the most courageous thing you can do.

    Introduction Today marks the three year anniversary of Imperial Gaming, with thousands of members having come and gone, Imperial Gaming as a whole still stands very tall and true, being the largest Australian Star Wars RP Server and the largest Imperial RP Server in the world. As I said during the actual awards ceremony, there are many people to thank, beginning with Management. The Management of Imperial Gaming have spent countless hours working on the Server and have gone out of their way to make the Server better for everyone involved. The Staff Team, including Moderators and Event Masters have spent their personal time to make the server better for the users. The Developers who spend a lot of their free time creating and making things for the entire community and the Server. The Commanders and all of High Command for going out of their way to make the time for new players enjoyable by leading and supervising them. The donators for providing revenue to allow the server to continue running. Last, but not least, of course, the users, without you we wouldn't be here and the Server couldn't run. Thank you all for a great three years, even if I've not been here for all of it, I count IG as a second home and have made friends that have shaped the person I have become and have helped me out of ruts. Imperial Gaming is more than just a community.

Conclusion That's a wrap for this year, its been a very good one and everything went smoothly even though there were a few hiccups and my blood pressure nearly spiked to a point of heart attack and the fact that @Vanilla and I did like 8 different reshoots for the anniversary photo nearly killed me. However, its all worth it knowing Imperial Gaming has been here for three years, and will be here for a long time more. Thank you everyone for the work you've put into the Server and for making Imperial Gaming the place it is. It also seems sitting that this is my 3000th post on the forums. Thanks again, you are truly a wonderful group of people.

    It's Finally the Time. I have spent almost 6 months playing this server and 218 days. I made it to Commander of Jump Troopers, Staff - Moderator, and Finally Major General. Unfortunately, I am going into Year 11 in a week and my parents have become very concerned about focusing on school, and to a degree, I am too. It would be unfair of me to hold my position as a Major General and Staff with that sort of inactivity due to school. So, as a result, I am stepping down from Major General and my Staff Position. I will also be leaving the server, and no I will not be joining another community, this will be the end of the road for my Garry's Mod. I have made some great friends over the months and I will definitely miss you guys. That is all. Cheers, Planz

    IMPERIAL GAMING FUTURE UPDATE/CHANGES Hello Imperial gaming community members and staff, in this post, I will be explaining the upcoming changes, ideas, and suggestions that we have been given and implementing/still discussing. So firstly I will be talking about upcoming changes to the website Changes to the website: The biggest changes to the website will be a fresh new look for the forums, this will involve removing the current theme and placing our own new custom theme done by a professional (aka not me). However, this is still being discussed and has no set completion date just yet. An idea I would like to bring in if done correctly is to profile music, however, this will be restricted to people with 300+ content count on the forums and tight rules will be in place with the songs. I would like for this addition to be for our senior members only due to I would like to reward our senior members for sticking with us all this time. This, however, is still to be discussed with the staff to see their opinions on this matter. We may be implementing a TeamSpeak integration for the website, so this means that whatever rank/ranks you have on the website will automatically be assigned to your UID in Teamspeak. This will allow the management team to assign everyone their correct ranks through the website only, this will also allow members to place a widget on there profile which shows what channel they are currently sitting in on Teamspeak however this is an option for members and they have to add it themselves to their profile through there settings, this is so if you don't want it then we won't force it on your profile, however, all staff will have to have it on for members who have questions or queries to have an easier way of contacting the staff. Changes to Teamspeak: This week we have been told news from TeamSpeak that Teamspeak 5 is in the works and has no current set date yet, however, we believe it is soon so when we have more news regarding TeamSpeak 5 our services from Teamspeak will be moved from TeamSpeak 3 to TeamSpeak 5 (As they skipped 4 ) however we will give ample warning before moving our services over and show everyone how to install the new version of Teamspeak and assist any member that requires help. Changes to Server: Recently Martibo, Moose and the Dev team have been working very hard to bring out new updates for the server which was explained in Martibos changelogs that he has done out of the kindness of his heart to explain to members the new additions. Now with this, I will be officially working on the new Quest system that will bring a new passive RP aspect to the server for when downtime is active and during Events. The way this will work is I will be picking 2-3 people to be official Quest Creators who will write Quests and send the ideas to me, now this will work differently to other servers by every 2-3 weeks the Quests will change and old ones will be deleted so there are new quests to work with and for it not to go stale. Rewards for completing quests will work by simply rewarding you with a new currency in the pointshop called "Quest Points" which will have a special tab that will allow you to buy special gear with the points and you can only buy that gear with the points as those points will not work with any other items in any other tabs. The npcs that give out the quests will be found at 2 different locations on the Star Destroyer for ease and 1 npc will be placed down each event map. The members who are the Quest makers will be compensated for there time and effort, however, compensation still is to be decided and how it will commence. This is all the information I can give to you at this time regarding Pointshop as I don't want to give out all the details as it would ruin it for when its implemented everyone will be dying to have a look. Moose has just made it so Players can no longer destroy ships with there body, which means that a ship can still ram and kill a player however if a mingey player decides to have a gun out when boarding the dropships and then gets pushed out resulting in the ship blowing up this will no longer happen, instead they will just fall out and no damage to the ship will be taken. Moose has also fixed the ships that we implemented on the server a while ago that are more High quality and better looking then our current ones so be on the lookout for the new ties, tie bombers and others. Martibo, Moose and the Dev team will also be working on other things and Martibo, in general, is working on a big project however they will bring out another changelog with everything included and in more detail when it is all implemented/when it is completed. Changes to Staff team (TEMP): As of 3 days ago, I am on a less active leave for a bit while a personal matter came up, for those who don't know my mother was taken to hospital and almost died to a blood infection, now before you worry everything is fine, she is fine and was in ICU (Intensive Care) and is now being looked after and is on the road to recovery and you do not need to send me any messages as I am fine as well and I would rather no messages regarding this issue be sent as it is a personal matter and I would like to keep it that way however it was a stressful time for myself and I can not have stress from the server inflicting on my life just at this point in time so I will still be on nearly every day however just for 2-3 weeks I will be less active than what I am normally on the server (Hours epr day wise) however in Teamspeak I will still be very active so if you have any issues or have a question do not be afraid to ask me as that is not stressful and I will gladly help any member/staff that requires help. Welshy is also on Less Active leave while he finishes up his studying courses and also goes away on a holiday, so he will also be still playing however his activity is dropping for a bit while he completes that and comes back from his holiday. Other notes: Be aware that more changes will be implemented and that any changes here can be changed if the community does not like it or they have better ideas for the community so please in posts below if you do not like any changes (Excluding Changes to Staff team as you can't change those) or you have a better idea for the community. Regards, Wolf & Whitey Staff Team Managment Team

    Well it's time. Firstly I would like to thank the entirety of the Imperial Gaming Community for everything you have all given me, help me achieved, supported me and allowed me to be the best I could be on the server, whilst supporting my efforts as the Grand General for the period I served the role. I have come to the decision that I am leaving the server, and the community. I have had my fair share of time on the server, I have had my ups and my downs, My laughs and my arguments, but now is the time I leave. I would also like to thank the following: @Wolf Where do I begin, you entrusted me with the highest military rank achieveable, allowed me to progress through the ranks of Commander, all the way through Imperial High Command and I cannot thank you enough. I am also glad to be able to call you a great friend, and I can't thank you enough for your ongoing support. @Chopz You were my Commander from day 1 and to this day will always be the real OG Commander in my eyes. Without you I would never have achieved where I am today, so thank you. @Lucky My faithful Second in Command, You supported me throughout the rough times we faced in Imperial High Command, supported me when it got tough, and took the mantle while I was unable to be there due to other commitments. I thank you for everything you helped me achieve, and I look forward to your growth as the new Grand General. @Jman1308 Thank you so much for everything you helped me with, from trusting me with the Army restructure, to the rebuilding of Imperial High Command, and from taking the reigns from Wolf and still having the same faith and trust in me to do what I needed to do. @Welshy You were my partner in crime, and still are, however I thank you for the great times we had on the server, to the trouble we caused and the trouble we got ourselves into. I thank you. @Grif The mini Lucky if ever I had seen it. I can't thank you enough for your commitment and support within Imperial High Command, and your efforts that made the role of others and the server more fun and enjoyable. Thank you. @Ghost4448 The hot head of Imperial High Command, next to Welshy lol. Thank you so much for everything you have done, you have shown alot of potential, and still to this day continue to put the effort in and I can not thank you enough. @Theta The salad general himself. If Grif is the mini Lucky, you are the mini Grif. in saying that, you have lived up to all expectations and more, you have shown me how faithful and reliable you are, and I can not thank you enough for everything you have done. @Ragetank The second bulky boi, my identical twin....just smaller. Thank you for everything you have done, from copying my size in PAC3 to being extrodinary in your dev work for the server, to maintaining and supporting the security forces on the server. @Loki The glue of Army High Command, you were there when things got tough for all of Imperial High Command, and without you things would have fallen apart. I thank you for supporting everyone when it got tough and for being a fantastic General. @Tinky SHUT UP FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE. But in all seriousness, thank you so much brother, for everything. From being a fantastic Commander, to becoming a brilliant Brigadier General, I know you will go far, just have faith and continue pushing. Thank you so much brother. Theres obviously alot more people I would like to thank however this post doesnt need to be over 3 pages and the list of the other end probably longer. I will still be around in the server's Team Speak, however my time in game has come to an end. Again thank you all so much. Sincerely Hammer.

    Hello Community, Recently the management team has been looking into new ways that we can bring a fresh feel and give new RP opportunities to the server. One of the ways we are doing this is by change the placement of many of the major branch location on the ISD into places where they can be exposed to new role play scenarios and be in a location that gives more chance to interact and meet other individuals. After much discussion with specific branches and management we have concluded on the locations that will be listed below. These changes will be happen over the course of the next week or two and will be moving one by one. Location Changes: Debrief > Lower Hanger/Repair Bay The new debrief has already been constructed yesterday by Alystair and we will begin the next move today. Please send your appreciation to Alystair for dedicating most of the day into building an outstanding debrief. ISB > Debrief ISB will be moving to the location that debrief just moved from on floor 2, this will allow ISB to more easily stay in communication with the other security enforcement regiment and be able to increase the RP between the two divisions whilst still keeping some distance to the main population clusters. Sith Temple > DS-01 Moving the Sith Temple to the battle-station will allow the Sith to keep their requirement of a large open area where they can conduct their tournaments, training, ect and remove them from a main population area where people tend to antagonise them and run into the temple. TI > DS-01 The battle-station has enough space that it can be shared between Sith & the Tarkin Initiative projects that are going on, moving TI was a high priority so that it opens up the snow planet for more wide spread RP through the server that can be conducted though events, IHC training or other missions instead of being a restricted area nobody can access. IHC & GOV > Current Temple Merging IHC and Regional Government together into a command sector seemed like a logical choice as it allows the two administrative branches to be in quick and easy access of each-other that will allow more efficient management of the regiments. The IHC Briefing room may also be moved to this location as it is a large area and the gaming room be moved back into the spare space. Galactic Emperor Palpatine > Current GOV His majesty Emperor Palpatine will be separated from Sith as he was never known by the public to be one anyway, he will have the area as his Throne Room with RG & SG to protect him. This means that the military may be required to protect him from incursions at some points and to clarify RG&SG can still be involved with Sith affairs and join in on their training they are just with palpatine to protect him as that is their job. Current IHC At this point the current IHC is still in discussion about what will be placed there but we will keep you informed.

    Hello Imperial Gaming With Chopz resigning and with the current management structure we are currently not ready to appoint a permanent Community Manager until the said person has been trained and is ready to go with all the information they need. With that being said I have decided to temporarily place @Jman1308 into the position of Community Manager so he is able to assist me until the new Community manager has been decided. The reasons behind choosing Jman to assist me is due to the fact his knowledge with how Management works, he use to be a massive assist to us in Imperial Gaming and still is to this day, he will be assisting myself and Imperial Gaming in teaching the knowledge to the next Community Manager and the fact he is ex-management and has still helped us to this day even after retiring. Remember this is Temporary position and once a new Community Manager has been assigned Jman will be stepping back down until he decides what type of position he would like to assist Imperial Gaming in the future. Regards, Wolf

    Holy sh*t.... In all the times I check up on this community this is by far one of the most stupidest posts I've read... Since day one this community has had its fair share of problems and hate from little ungrateful nerds like yourself who expect this and that with almost 0 understanding to what actually goes on behind the scenes or how much work actually goes into creating a community for all to enjoy free of charge and which is then moderated by people who give up their time to be there to help you they don't get paid for what they do but instead they get the satisfaction of just being there and helping, providing the server with what it needs to move forward as a community. Just by reading your ban appeal I can already tell you expect to be unbanned, Why? why should we unban a rude ungrateful immature child if you cant even be bothered to put 5 minutes worth of effort into a ban appeal of which is an apology to the community and staff who run this server, you literally join a hate group to hate someone who is providing you a chance to play the server to even begin and you cant even be bothered show remorse for what you did nor do you even care enough to apologize and take responsibility for what you did clearly down-playing and brushing off your actions Its appalling.. You state multiple times that you do in-fact "Own up" or "Take responsibility" for what you did and yet you cant even find the time to put some effort into this appeal or even find time to apologizing to frank.. your every reply since posting this contradict your words from the previous reply... you also then go on to say "If I wasn't allowed to be in the community I should have been community banned off the forums I have posted content for the community even after I was banned" If I was still around for this situation I would've community banned your ungrateful ass.. from what it looks like the management team had hopes for you to become a reformed community member after an extended break on the bench you say multiple times "Its been a long time" all over your post and yet you still haven't properly thought about what you did.. You also state that "This community takes itself too seriously when it needs to be and sometimes punishes those with negative or neutral standing with the populus." This server from day one has been serious and believe me I know more then anyone being serious all the time gets tiring and boring but as soon as you connect to our "Serious RP Server" its 99% super serious and its like that to give the community a better roleplay experience. I may not be management anymore but I thought I would give my two sense on your ban appeal as I was usually considered back in my time as the nice one considering I gave so many people such as yourself chances even more than the so called "second chance" All of those people I gave these chances to all had one thing in common.... they were actually remorseful for what they did most of which even sat on the bench for 3x longer than you have because most of them knew what they did was wrong and did not expect to be unbanned rather they asked for our forgiveness and requested to move forward. You know whats great? even though they know what you did this community is still wanting or hoping for you to see the better side of you and give you that chance even after your appalling attempt on this appeal. Even after everything you are still expecting this and that... YOU did wrong and EXPECT for frank to go and seek out an apology from you... You certainly do not deserve an unban and you'd be lucky in my books to even be allowed to stay around in this community... but hey I don't make the decisions around here anymore so you might scrape away a lucky little boy but you best grow up quickly.. I wish you luck.. Sincerely Imposing,

    Well, I guess this a goodbye to the community that I've been a part of for so long. Didn't think I'd have to post for this for a long while to come but recently with a Year 12 overload and real life suddenly hitting me. I just don't have the time to sit around playing Gmod like I used to. For almost a year now IG has been a big part of my life, I've been a CO, Moderator, General and experienced pretty much all that the Star Wars RP life has to offer. @Tonberry - My favourite Krennic and lad to chat to <3. Will miss seeing you around with your big white cape and mad guitar skills. @Flipps - The man who made me laugh more than ever around IG. Emperor Palpameme will never be forgotten nor the countless experiences we had whilst I was in Government. @Kristofer - The dodgy recruit I trained at 2am and thought was German. At the time I never would've predicted you'd become so confident and high up within the community. Keep it up <3 @Shepard - From writing an ISB report on you and your Shadow boys to memeing around on CWRP and Santos, couldn't have asked for much a better friend around here. @Rickle @Bailey @Cecil - Three of the best lads around and some of the OG supporters, thanks for the memories. @Misahu - Damn you were a sh*t stirrer as ISB CO but I wouldn't of had it any other way. Thanks for such memorable moments. @Zote @Matrix - Then there were you two. The OG boys who came over from DWS, we don't talk much these but days but still couldn't leave you out. For those I didn't mention, thank you. You made this experience just as memorable and amazing as those who were tagged and it wouldn't have been the same without you. Depending on how life turns out I may be back after a while and I'll jump on the server every now and then but currently, schooling has to be my number one priority. If anyone still wants to chill and play some games or something you can grab me on STEAM or Discord and we'll work something out <3

    Well it has been over a year and I have made a lot of friends and also became Emperor surprisingly but everything has to come to an end and this is where ill take off, I cant be bothered writing about everyone on the server because everyone was a good friend and a happy face to talk to and I will miss everyone. I will most likely come back but I don't know when but when I do the New Sith have to keep their eye out because ill be taking a spot. Thank you for Everything and this Community is amazing -Born

    Hey everyone! I know I haven't been around much because I have been dealing with some family issues but while that was going on I was making a skateboard for an assignment at school. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I wanted to show you all because I did the design of the sticker my self and that was the main feature. Not only that but I went into a skateboard shop on Friday and got some grip tape for it and while I was there the store manager wanted to see my board so I am going to get featured on their Instagram page. If you like it leave an up vote!

    As some of you may have figured out from my previous post (and other secret communications), currently in the works is a custom Lothal map. For the past month now, @Cracked, @Frosty__ and myself (mostly cracked) have been working hard on the map, and we believe its finally at a stage worth showing the community. On a side note, I'm currently looking for funding to commission King Pommes to make some custom textures for the map (for the grass, mountains and houses) so if you're feeling generous and you're able to chip in, it would be greatly appreciated. With that aside, I made sure this time the camera wasn't foggy so you'll be able to get a good feel for the map and its features. Control room view of the city Just a regular old tower Main Imperial Complex Civilian Spaceport City & Branching Roads Please keep in mind the map is still in the middle of development and any features/buildings that you see in the screenshots may not be in the final version. The grey and orange textures you can see on lots of the buildings are dev textures and not intended for the final version, they are simply placeholders used until we get the custom textures. With that in mind, we'd love to hear any and all suggestions you guys have about possible; buildings, features and locations. Previous Teaser:

    Before a month of hard work goes towards the expansion (here), the past few weeks the development team has been putting in hard work to keep the imperial server fresh and new with content for everyone to enjoy. Please all the new changes below. Content Added Microtransactions! After many, many requests from users we have decided to finally add more micro transactions into the donation store, please contact a staff member in game after purchasing to receive the product. Some of the micro transactions are listed below. (If they are not on the store right now they should be up later today) Credits may be bought for a ratio of $1 - 500 credits Points may be bought for a ratio of $1 - 1000 points You may buy permanent guns that will stick to your character regardless of your role including Cycler Rifle - $40 RPS-6 - $50 Star Wars Laser - $100 Permanent Health Boosts (stackable 5 times up to 500 extra health) 50 HP - $5 100 HP - $10 250 HP - $25 Mission Skips Skip any mission completely for $10 per mission (whole mission not just level) Promotions - you must complete the required test to be promoted after purchasing, you will not be refunded for failing. CL-1 > CL-2 - $10 CL-2 > CL-3 - $25 CL-3 > CL-4 - $40 CL-4 > CL-5 - $80 CL-5 > CL-6 - $120 CL-6 > ALL ACCESS - $200 and Management Decision Speech Bubble When someone is typing a speech bubble should appear above their head, this is for those people without microphones as it can be hard to tell when people are typing Content Updated/Changed Precaching We have heard your words about precache instability and so the following changes will be made in hopes of reducing the load on the server Precache time will be extended to 1 hour Each precache will occur every 5 seconds Balance Changes We have been working closely with the balance team in order to refine the combat aspect of the server to ensure that events are fair for all. ID-10 Dio Base Health increased from 200 to 400 to reflect his armour capabilities Added Bacta Grenade to reflect his already-existent bacta injector Added the new "Droid Minigun" which has roughly 600 RPM I believe with 20 damage per bullet. Area Access clearance changed to All Access as he is a surveillance droid Scatter Shotgun The scatter shotgun will be buffed to 75 damage as it is rather underpowered Sith Lightsaber Damage from 25 to 100 to reflect a real lightsaber Force Leap can now noclip you through walls when stood directly next to them Force Heal now heals roughly 10x the original healing, and may be used in combat. Event Characters All event characters regardless of the event masters event will receive 200 armour to compensate for the mass amount of troopers, this should give them more of a fighting chance and smooth events out a lot. Default event model changed from ST to Palpatine Mission Progress After many months of testing the experimental system of missions, the mission system will be wiped tomorrow. Good job to everyone who prestiged this time around Mission Completion is made roughly 5-10x harder to make prestiging a privilege In line with the Microtransaction update you must pay $25 to prestige Content Removed Climb Swep After a long discussion with all of management we have decided to finally remove climb swep, it is clearly a break of role play and has no use on the server Recruits Recruitment slows down the process and roughly 70% of all players joined are still recruit as they never finish training due to boredom, for this reason players will join straight into the 6th Army Brigade, and more regular training within the regiment will be done Crashes Thanks to player and community feedback we've decided to remove crashes completely from our servers in an effort to increase player satisfaction and immersion. This feature wasn't working as intended, its sad to see it go but its for the better. This will also be the first collaborative changelog in light of the new changes, feel free to comment any thoughts or suggestions below

    I've really enjoyed being a part of this community and being on the staff team, for the most part, however I've become very bored of gmod and have been enjoying other things in life. Thanks for the good times boys and girls. Can't really be bothered tagging a bunch of people but I'm sure you know who you are so thanks for being cool <3.
