    Earning Respect

    His rank is Master Chief. He is the third in command of my command, so his title is akin to that of a Command Sergeant Major in the Army. He’s an E-9 in the Navy.

    Since I helped out my Command Master Chief he gave me this coin. He doesn’t give them out often.

    Region Issues

    Hey brothers, I am back for a while. I am trying to play on the server, but I am having a problem. My game thinks my region is in Asia since I moved to Japan. While accurate, it is hiding all the American servers. Even when I got into my Legacy Browser, it tells me the PG server is not responding to my connection attempt. I loaded in fine earlier when no one was online? Does anyone have any bright ideas? UPDATE: I have been doing some tinkering and I have found that I can see just about every American server except for the PG Server? Like what the hell?

    Me.

    What happened to me? Well, that is a question I have been asking myself for a very long time. That sounds a little cryptic. Allow me to back up a little. When I first joined the server almost 2 years ago now, I was new to Garry's Mod. I had only recently just got my hands on a decent gaming PC and wanted to try it out. I had always been curious about mods and whatnot, so I played a lot of New Vegas, Left 4 Dead 2, and of course Garry's Mod. When I first loaded in to Prominent Gaming, we were in the middle of Anakin's Day Off on the City 18 Map. I had no idea what the hell was going on, all I remember was hearing Rami advertising Rami Care over the voice amp and I was swiftly murdered by Anakin Skywalker with no means of defending myself, so I promptly disconnected. I was weirded out and debated not even coming back at all. But low and behold, a few days later I loaded back in and found myself in a training room. A 41st LCPL named Tony trained me. I was amazed by our simplistic ship and ran with the 41st on my first mission. I was painted green and remember my first event was on GM_Bush or whatever that map is called. It wasn't until after that mission a few days later that I was recruited into the 41st. I was then a 41st TRNE PVT that could barely climbswep. My task to become an Elite Trooper was to get to the roof through the Main Hangar. No exceptions. They told me that if I couldn't do it, that the other regiments were recruiting. I died 40 times one night, staying up all night with Father, an old CT that trained me in the ways of the Climbswep, and only then did I manage it. Through following my 41st XO named Aaylmao (yes that was his name, we were much more lenient on names at the time) who was also a super admin (not kidding) I impressed him with my leadership skill and ability to follow orders. He made me the 41st Operative Leader. At the time, 41st Operative meant that I was the default leadership in the regiment. So if an ARC CSM was online and I was a MSGT, I was leading. Our Gree, a guy named Vox, left the server. Burned out. Aaylmao went and joined the 187th and took on the name Storm. So Switch, our 3IC, became Commander Gree. He looked between myself and another guy named Izual, my battle buddy I was recruited with, for the XO position. I passed a written exam and essay so I became the 2nd in command of the 41st Elite Corps. Before Vox left, he was one of the only Head Trainers (that is what we called them) that were online. ZuFy was active, but he simply never trained new trainers. So Vox got me a trainer tag and I went to work leading the 41st and training cadets day in and day out. I called for admins constantly, so they all got used to knowing my name. A few watched me train from time to time. I handled minges without powers and only threatening to call staff unless absolutely dire. Either way, I pushed them through as best I could and once they were out of that room and in their CT gear, they were no longer my problem. Aaylmao recommended I apply for staff. I was unsure at first, but he said "what is there to lose?" In retrospect, about 4500+ hours of my life but it was time well spent. I applied and I got accepted in a landslide. When I first was a young Moderator, our ranks were simple. They went Mod > Admin > Super Admin > Head Admin > Co-Owner > Owner. Nice and easy! I was ambitious. I hosted events and the EPs at the time kept them from sucking and helped me turn my ideas into cohesive missions. I learned so much from the EPs of old. Namely a man named Azin. Switch and I ran the 41st like a well oiled machine. We stuck to the concept of TRNE to Elite being the main hangar climbswep test for rookies to weed out those who were not worthy. If you didn't know how to do it, then if you wanted a future in the regiment, you learned. If not, then the other regiments are always recruiting. We put together a fantastic team. There was Switch, myself, Izual as 3IC, Wilson, Watson, Tachan, and we even recruited a CT PVT named Diddlez (yes, that Diddlez). I remember Diddlez was struggling to get up the wall on that Main Hangar test and I physgunned him and told him "listen, maybe you get this done and you'll be Gree one day or something". Little did I know he would move on to become Gree. I became a Head Trainer and began to train more trainers. I also made it a rule that you would have to be a SGT+ to get trained for trainer. We always had a mic requirement. Eventually, I got promoted to Admin. Then, well, you know the rest... My point in bringing all of this up was that when I first joined, when I first became staff, I was so friendly. I was so lifelike. I greeted everyone in the halls, I led the 41st, I trained almost every cadet. If I got into it with someone, I made sure I shook their hand afterward and assured them that there was no hard feelings. I got down to every detail when a rule was broken to ensure the punishment would be just and fair. I was a better Icarus. Fast forward, about 2 years later, here I am. Still administrating. But I am much more sour. I am much quicker to kick or ban and ask questions later. I feel like lately all I have been doing is making enemies, or at least that is what it feels like. Maybe it is just paranoia, but I feel like there is always someone working against me. Trying to bring me down. Standing in my way. Maybe... maybe that person is me?

Have any idea what that means? I sure don't. My GMOD has a mess in the console whenever I try loading in. It makes helping in events near impossible, and definitely restricts me from hosting my own at all. And it's not because I don't have the content, I should have everything. All of these look like Mass Effect props too, but I have that addon. It makes no sense to me. If you have any ideas as to what this could be, I'm all ears.

    Guess Who's Back

    My rank is Seaman(E-3) so SN for short. My rate is Yeoman, YN for short. YNSN. My job is to account for personnel on this squadron I'm being assigned to and write reports and handle legal documents. I'm going to learn Japanese.

    Guess Who's Back

    Don't worry, I'll mail you a present when I get there.

    Guess Who's Back

    Marines are pretty terrifying. I saw like 10 of them wrestling in the dirt yesterday. I'm a YNSN going to be stationed with a squadron in Japan.

    Guess Who's Back

    I can shoot AROUND my target. And when I got here, they told me to watch out for marines. I asked why and they responded with "they're loud and f***ing stupid".

    Guess Who's Back

    We all fly a little too close to the sun from time to time. But I feel like I flew right into it and got vaporized into ash. Then like a Phoenix, I arose stronger than before. I repeated that cycle several times and here I am. "What are you talking about?" I was at a quaint little place called Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, Illinois for about 2 and a half months. RTC is about 50 minutes away from Chicago. Anyway, I was at Navy Bootcamp. There I underwent the metamorphosis of being changed from a selfish kid to a United States Sailor. Now I can fight fires, rescue wounded, handle a 9mm like a gunslinger, bring a ship into port, operate a bridge, stand security watch(guard duty), etc. I've never laughed, sweat, and cried so much in my life. So, now I'm at "A" School in Mississippi. Completely different environment. I went from walking down the street and having Petty Officers and Chiefs treat me like I'm worth less than the dirt cuz I was just a recruit to walking around this new base with E-3 stripes and have everyone say good morning to me. I was told that I am pathetic and don't deserve to wear my uniform. But that same RDC that told me that shook my hand and told me "good job" before I got on the bus to the airport to leave bootcamp. Not to mention being allowed to actually start spending the ridiculous amount of money I am being paid and being able to access the internet with my phone. I'll be getting my laptop and my Blue yeti mailed to me here real soon so I'll be hopping on the server whenever I can. (Also, FACE REVEAL)

    I need to get some stuff off my chest

    I barely know you, but from what I have read, let me tell you something. I have been in the same boat with a step mother that screamed at me for literally anything. So, I felt like I didn't have a voice. I was young. I took an ROTC class as a Freshman and I got my voice back. I learned how to take being yelled at and how to dish it out. As for your situation, man, you need to understand that there will always be another "her" in your life. You need to grow and become a stronger, better person than her. There will always be someone in your life trying to judge you and criticize everything you do. So I recommend you start exercising your middle-finger muscle. And if not, the second you turn 18 you can be out of that house and never look back. I never did. Your family is not those simply related to you. Your family is comprised of people that care about your wellbeing. Do I consider my stepmother family? No, I used to joke about growing up and murdering her at the age of 8. She backs off now because I can yell louder than her. Should you consider your guardian family? In my opinion from what you have told me, hell to the no. I will forgive my stepmother one day, though. As should you once you've moved on. Be the better person. And besides, if not, you'll always have family here.

    41st RP

    Cloning clones is illegal, 41st. Believe me, I have seen Gree get cloned 11 times.

    What is DarkRP?

    Dark RP is a gamemode that is kind of like City RP, basically but just about anything can happen, which makes it fun. Ugandan Knuckles could raid your house with his army of tongue clickers, Batman could be running people over in the Batmobile, corrupt police could be wandering around on meth, Jedi and clones could be at a bar talking out their problems with the CIS, etc. Most Dark RP servers are generic, like you see one, you have seen them all. Ours will be more unique, I have heard about custom classes allowing just about any models on the workshop, so things will definitely be crazy if that is true. But that is just what I heard we talked about once.
