Rp_Downtown is a roleplay map available for Garry's Mod. It is a medium-sized map, designed with rather small streets, making it less popular with Roleplay servers that include player-ownable vehicles. It is the most popular with DarkRP servers, with it being the main map you'll see on a majority of servers.
The map is medium-sized, but has many different areas and buildings to interact with. There are about 14 different buildings normally available, divided into several different locales. These can be divided into 3 categories: Residence, Warehouses, Shops.
The Town Square is a public location, featuring several different buildings with ownable doors. The Main spawn is in the area, placed inside a tunnel to the back left. The back door to the Police Station also faces out to the Town Square. There is also a small alleyway that holds the entrance to an elevator leading down to the sewers and the back door to a shop next to the Police Station.
There are two designated living spaces overlooking the Town Square. There is also a 3 story building that partially overlooks the Town Square, but is not considered part of the area. These are:
This building is a three floor building with two apartments on each the second and third floor. The apartments each come with one closet and two small windows. While being described as a hotel, the residents have no obligation to leave their homes and find a new one after a period of time and may stay as long as they like.
While not having an official name, the Apartments is arguable the most populated building in the entire map, having at least one resident at any given time. The Apartments features 5 floors, 4 of which have ownable doors. The building also features a stairway, which runs from the lobby on the ground floor to roof access on the 5th floor. In the lobby, there is one door ownable. it is essentially a small closet next to the stairway with no windows or furnishings. The 1st and 2nd floors both have two apartments. One apartment has nothing in it, has two windows, and is naturally dark. The other apartment is larger, featuring 3 windows and a bathroom, a small closet, a refrigerator, and two cabinets for ownership. The third floor only has the large apartment because of the billboard that sits in front of where the small apartment would be. The 5th floor has no ownable doors.
There are two shops in the Town Square. They are normally covetted by Dealers of all kinds.
Named due to the closing garage door, the garage is shop normally used by Dealers to make secure sales. It also has a regular door that is ownable. The garage itself is small and located next to the main spawn.
The FOTO shop is located on the first floor of the FOTO Hotel building. It is frequently used by Dealers because of its natural security. The counter has a door above it that is ownable and pushes out. Behind the counter, there is an office-like room which contains another door allowing street access.
Police Station RowEdit
The Police Station row is a street that runs by the Police station and a few shops. It is the most trafficked street, containing the Police station, some shops, and two buildings.
The Police Sation is the center of Roleplay Government. It contains several rooms on three floors, all ownable by the police and the mayor. The Police Station contains 4 jail cells, where people arrested by police officers will be sent automatically. The Mayor's office is located in this building. There is a front door and a back door, though both are have a second door on the other side, making it more difficult and dangerous to break in. Some servers have diffrent versions of the Police Station,one makes it smaller, into a 5 room building on one floor. It holds 3 jailcells, only a front door, a public lobby, a counter for talking to the police, and a lockerroom-like room.
There are 3 shops on this street. Two of them are small and normally coveted by Bartenders and dealers alike. the one closest to the Police station on the left has a back door leading to an alleyway containing an elevator and a counter. the one to the far left is small and basicly an empty room. The third shop is more of a warehouse with a garage door. It is not normally used by anyone except Gun Dealers and occasionally the mob.
The street has two buildings. Both are three stories tall and have windows. The first one is to the left of the Police Station, sitting on top of the shops underneath. It contains no default props and has light switches. The windows are covered be movable pieces of wood that can be owned like doors. One side of the building faces the town square, and can be used to spy on people or snipe them. This building is virtually unused, with the occasional exception of the mob. The second one is across the street from the Police Station. It has large, open windows on every floor, making access rather easy and protecting against raiders or police difficult. There is also not much space on any of the floors and the large windows make it difficult to hide anything. The only real advantage is access to the roofs of the apartments.
