Guide to making a successful dyom mission

Recommended Posts

Obb Porff

Hello everyone ūüĖź! Have you wished to make a dyom mission/mission pack/storyline which people like and gets lots of downloads? If yes, then you have come to the right place. Today in this guide you will get to know how to make a dyom mission that is great.

 

I am assuming that you already know how to use dyom. Lets get started!

 

1) Characters:-

First you need to write down the characters which you will be using in the story. Write with pencil so that you can modify it later on.

 

2) Outline:-

Now write the outline of your story somewhere with a pencil. Later on, in case you feel that a particular part of outline can be changed, it can be easily done if you write the outline with pencil.

 

3) Characteristics of the characters:-

You need to know (or just write down) the characteristics of those characters.

 

For eg, you want your character to have a kind attitude, so while making the mission/Mpack/DSL you should maintain that characteristic. Everything he says should be in kind words. Remember that it can change with the story according to events. E.g. A tragedy can make him sad.

 

4) Do your research:-

You can search online for tips for the theme of your story. For eg, you are writing a story of war, you can search online about tips for creating war stories.

 

5) Creating your story:-

Open gta sa dyom and start creating your mission.

 

6) Publishing:-

You can sign in to gta forums and create a thread describing your mission. Make sure to include a small backstory of:-

Your Mission/Mpack/DSL ¬† ¬†ūüĒĶ

Characters. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†ūüĒĶ

Factions. ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†ūüĒĶ

 

So we wrap up the guide here. Hope you enjoyed it and happy scripting!

I am sorry, but the most important part is originality. If the majority of pros found even SLIGHTEST of cliched elements, then your work will immediately deemed into not worthy to play even if you do all those aforementioned steps.

you're talking out of your ass. overusing cliches is one thing, but how are you supposed to make something completely original when almost each and every theme and subject has already been explored multiple times? even the best projects this community has seen so far ('The Flats', 'No Rules In The Sands', 'Codename Zulu' etc.) rely to some extent on unoriginal concepts - military, gang wars, general criminality etc. if you absolutely felt the need to add to this topic, you should've just written 'don't overuse cliches'

and even then, originality is a good factor, but 100% not the main one. if you rip someone or something off, you're obviously going to be bashed, but again, some of the best works out there aren't totally original

Alright, then how about:

 

- "Oh, this guy used to make so many bad projects, I don't think this one will be the cherry on top of diarrhea shake even though he has released promising sneak peaks this time."

- "Why should I play a project from him who used to be annoying here even though he has changed now?"

Who were fighting? I just said that it is unlikely those tips works if your first impression to this community is bad. Most people can only forgive you once, twice, then they will be like "Keep making up for all of your past mistakes for all I care, You are forever that bad!" without comparing the sum of all your good contributions with all serious annoyances and bad actions you did in the past until as long as you are still active here.
