The most important in my opinion is to supercede JAYMOD - Jaybird goes AWOL 99% of the time and support is dismal. The user.db bugs in Jaymod are a nightmare but some people just love jaymod..
So I guess I just want to know if it's possible to create a jaymod experience, through use of SilEnT MOD.. I know the hitboxes etc are very different.. How feasible is it to make a silent server feel just like Jaymod, for those diehard jaymod lovers?

BTW, it's impossible or almost impossible and time consuming to code a mod similar to Jaymod because of one simple reason - Jaymod is a closed project

I am well aware SilEnT experience is better - thats why I refuse to play any other MOD But there are people out there who will ONLY play jaymod because they are used to it and cant play with realistic hitboxes etc that you find in etpub / silent / even NQ..
I am not saying to make silent more like Jaymod.. that would be hell.. But it would be a very useful function to be able to tweak certain settings so that it 'feels' similar to jaymod.
And I'm also not saying to recode silent or make another MOD like jaymod (and I know it's closed source or I wouldn't really be making this post 'cause we could fix the bugs ourselves ) - Just the ability to cater for the die-hard jaymod fans would be good.. because F|A clan for example has 3 SilEnT servers, 1 ETPro Server, 4 Jaymod Servers, 3 NQ servers.. (I may have forgotten some..) - Those who play Jaymod are VERY loyal to jaymod and HATE how any other mod feels.. Simply because jaymod is SO different to others..
So I just want to know if it's possible to tweak settings so that it feels sort of like jaymod in terms of hitboxes etc, so that Jaymod can finally die.

I like silent the way it is myself. I think it is actually more configurable than jaymod. But most players don't know or care what happens at the admin level, they just want certain weapons. Even changing the font of the game confuses a lot of them. Herd behavior I guess.

I'd rather just wish for jaybird to actually live up to his promises OR make Jaymod opensource.. It's faulty as hell and doesn't even have safeguards in place for no etkeys.. It's a POS that needs fixing or ditching.

I don't play Jaymod, and haven't in years - but I'm sure that Jaymod people are equally as devoted to it as we are of silEnT. If there are as many problems with it as you say, I guess they've learned to deal with them. Other than that, we are just stuck with the knowledge that we are playing the best MOD with a great development team that is constantly innovating, fixing and improving. I guess you could always convince the brass at F|A to secretly migrate one Jaymod server over to silEnT over the course of a few months
* - Oh, you like this MOD? Guess what -- IT's NOT JAYMOD --- IT'S SILENT!!!!! MUH-HA-HA-HA

You're right, and even more: I am sure it is the case for all other MODs, that's why ET will never die xD

Much as I like Silent for its innovations, part of the reason its like that is to be different than jaymod, I wont sit here and blast jay for work that turned out surprisingly well.
See, and I came from ETPub - as a long time server admin on an ETPub server, I was really glad to see silEnT pick up the torch and morph that great MOD into what silEnT is. Even though ETPub is coming back, I am now a converted silEnT guy and have no interest in keeping up with ETPub.
