Hello DYOM users,

I browsed the DYOM Database for missions, and I'm SHOCKED of seeing that you can upload any kind of crap, such as "liberty city", "beautiful map" and "you need to drive somewhere" and "just a cutscene" missions. And yes those missions exist!

Example of typical uncompleted missions:

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=535

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=496

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=428

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=477

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=476

These "james bond" missions are completely unplayable in-game. No-Markers for most targets, I know the designer is not that good for designing missions (only foreigners are using DYOM, NO ONE IS ENGLISH THERE. Well not even me!) and spelling, but what's the point of reuploading Bugs-Filled Missions that are 50% done ?

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=449

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=489

And some other missions like "kill the guy", with a big white screenshot named "MADE BY ME", and No-Description! "TIS IS RLY ULTRA HARD YOU WILL NEED TO KILL A BOSS THAT HAVE A REAL CHAINSAW!!!!!!!!!!!"

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=487

Well, this mission isn't a bad idea, but really DYOM doesn't support Money Use so what's the point (aigain) ?

Or WORSE, reupload from missions pack:

http://dyom.gtagames...act=show&id=504

Los Santos Stories... Zombie didn't even allowed Ruscris2 to unpack and upload however his missions.

You see, DYOM database really need a LOGIN, MODERATION and REGISTRATION system. So people can't upload however 50% done-missions. If we can call them missions.

Is this flaming/trolling ?

No. Completely Not. I just want to tell you guys that this is really bad to see. There's only 2 or 5 good missions, that come only from guys like Billy, Jackal, Tony-Resta...

Almost all the rest are so littles unplayables missions, which comes from unknown people, that can't even say "hi" or "thanks" on the forum, with a proper spelling.

Even translators are better.

So please take this to serious and hope you understand the topic without leaving idiots comments =)

Shortly: DYOM Database should be moderated and upgraded with Guests Restriction to Upload Files, and a Login/registration system, and some moderators that know what they're doing =)


And don't forget:

THIS IS CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

Agreed. That James Bond mission is long, boring and badly made... although I'm pretty happy that some people can write (YAY!)...

-Registration/Login
We considered this, but decided that it wasn't needed. It would only be an extra hurdle for people to upload their mission, but wouldn't prevent incomplete/unplayable missions to be uploaded.

-Moderation
This would be an option, but that would mean that we would have to play each individual mission that is uploaded, and that people would have to wait for us to finish this. The first problem is that we simply don't have the time to play every mission that is uploaded, and the second problem is to define proper rules about what is a "complete mission".
At the moment we rely on the community to identify uploaded missions that are "broken". At the bottom of each mission page on the site, there is a "report this mission to the administrators" link, which can be used if you encounter a mission that is clearly broken/empty.

If there are missions in the database that are clearly broken/empty (and I'm sure there are) report it so that we can have a look at them and take appropriate action.



BTW:
I must admit that I'm getting a little annoyed by your relentless and harsh criticism of everybody and everything. Not only towards us as developers, who made this modification in our own (unpayed) time, but also towards other people that are making missions.

Considering that I haven't seen a single mission that you created yourself:
If you yourself aren't able to create a proper mission, you should be more modest in your criticism of others.

You could introduce a reputation system. For good missions users can be given reputation points leading to higher ranks and more upload slots available to them. This way, the awful missions don't get put onto the website. If people want more from a well made series of missions they can rep the creator to give them more slots available.

Just a thought.

Something like that could be worth considering, but our main priority at this moment is the mod itself.
For the future we have plans for the site ourself, things like ratings for difficulty, quality and creativity for each mission. So that the missions can be sorted to these ratings, which would enable users to better find missions of their liking.

For now the "senior" mission-makers can present their missions in their own topic here in this forum, the feedback in their topics is a good indication to find nice missions to play.

Ruscris2 shutup, ZOMBIE made the release thread and ZOMBIE made them HIMSELF!!!

PatrickW, have you noticed that I'm trying to make Constructive Criticism? Do you want to see 150 missions "this is liberty city" on DYOM.GTAGAMES.NL?

I'm personally annoyed when an administrator come with the excuse "Everyone can upload anything".
Really

Let's see some of your missions then..

As for updates to the site, user ratings and comments would be alright i guess, if there is a login system.
And the login system itself would be a good addition maybe.

Other then that, i don't see anything wrong with the way it is now.
