Our hope is that our members enjoy their time here and refer to us as a second home because of how close we all are. We also pride ourselves on having the #1 Australia Star Wars server we are also on and off Australias #1 Garrysmod server.

This could not be possible without our extensive and well managed staff team, who volunteer their free time to help moderate our server and give our players things to do as well as our extensive and highly dedicated community of players who create and provide amazing roleplay experiences each and everyday. Below is a guide to help new players to the Imperial RP server understand some of the basic need to know training points within the server and the community.

The download may take a little while and once complete you will need to close your game and restart it in order for all of the errors to be fixed and you be able to see all of the props and items on the server.

Box Formation



During your time on the server you will notice that there are different ranks that players may achieve within their regiments, certain regiments such as those which are non-military based have a different ranking system to the regiments that are military based.

To see a full list of all ranks within the server, visit the following link: http://tiny.cc/igranks

DEFCON Levels:



DEFCON V - Normal Duties (Weapons away, unless guarding regiment)

DEFCON IV - All personnel be alert (Weapons out on safety)

DEFCON III - All personnel report to stations (Weapons out off safety)

DEFCON II - Full ship lockdown (All blast doors locked)

DEFCON I - Abandon Ship



Once training has been complete your trainer will fill out your enlistment form and you will be promoted to the rank of Storm Trooper Private and be sent on your way to explore the ship and interact with other members of the server. If you wish to receive a tour around the Star Destroyer and be shown where everything is and where you can and cannot go then speak with your trainer and ask for a tour and they will be happy to take you for one or alternatively they will find someone who can.



Now that you have completed your training and become one of the Empires finest, whats next?

Once you have completed training you can start your journey to find a regiment that interests you. When looking for a regiment it is important to think about what kind of things you would enjoy doing within roleplay and what you are good at, would you prefer a heavy roleplay regiment? A security regiment? or a combat regiment?. Once you have found a regiment that you would like to join you can do 1 of to things, either approach a member of that regiment and ask about the possibility of participating in regimental tryouts OR wait for tryouts to be hosted and attend them at the advertised location.


Once you attend tryouts you will be put through a serious of tests in order to determine whether or not you are a good fit for the regiment you are trying to join, tryouts will vary from regiment to regiment however the things that are typically uniform amongst all tryouts are as follows;

Faces - Here the conductor will test how well you understood and listened during your basic training when being taught your faces, the conductor will call out a series of faces for you to perform.

Formations - Here the conductor will test your knowledge of basic section formations in order to see if you will be able to conduct them on command from an officer.

Climb SWEP - Here the conductor will test your ability to scale obstacles and walls using the in-game climb SWEP ability, if you are unsure how to use this SWEP we recommend you ask a fellow member of the community for assistance OR view one of the many tutorials available online.

Shooting/Trigger Discipline - Here you will be tested on how well you can listen to orders which will be done by the instructor giving you a set of targets to hit and you are to shoot them in order of which they were given.

Interview - Here you will be asked a series of questions related to you, this is done so that the conductor can get a better understanding of yourself to determine whether you are someone they would want to have within their regiment.

I see where you are coming from but credit is only given when you base your idea off another or draw information or resources from another. This guide is something I have had written up (90%) completed for a while now and didn't know whether it was worth posting, sort of like a few others I have written up. This post also contains all my original thoughts, words and formatting which is why I didn't see need to give credit, however if it going to cause a big issue then I will include credit if need be.

Don't give me credit, there have been guides made before mine and there will be some made after. As long as new players are getting the support they need that's all that matters to me.
