From Reconstruction Era

The ReconstructionEra DarkRP server, coming to a computer near you!

The server is found under the DarkRP gamemode with the following address:


Server History

Way back when we decided to make a small DarkRP server to revive the gamemode. We met a few players like Carton Waffle who liked how we did things. The server was revived in 2023 when Flameoguy released a new map, rp_downtown_re. Figures such as Ratsmacker and OldManMammoth have been able to politically dominate the game by winning Mayor elections.

How to Play

ReEra DarkRP is simple to play, and combines elements of Gmod sandbox with an economy and state. As it is a roleplay gamemode, you assume a character within a city. You can find our server in the DarkRP tab or join by typing <connect reconstructionera.club:27018> into console.


The rules are listed in the MOTD:

  1. No Propminge (using props to grief). Propclimb, propsurf, propspam, propblock, proppush, and propkill could all be bannable depending on the severity of the minge. Props are here to build and roleplay with.
  2. No FailRP. You need to stay in character. If you pick a certain job, you are expected to actually do that job (joining police to RDM will get you banned). Using out-of-character information (metagaming) is forbidden.
  3. No MassDM. Running around the city and shooting everyone you see is not a valid part of a roleplay server. You should only kill someone if you have a valid in-game reason for doing so.

Please note that many typical rules like NLR, Advert Raid, RDM, and FearRP are not present on our server. As long as you are able to roleplay and have fun, you can play ReEra DarkRP without getting banned.
