Arma3 night!
« on: September 09, 2014, 12:55:59 pm »
Evoke had the great idea of getting regular LMC internal game nights going again. To bring more of us together. While we figure out details, let's start with an arma3 night this sat. Tentatively set this saturday.

Saturday
12pm PST ( UTC minus 8 )

[edit: fixed editing, thanks RAWR (damn you auto correct =P)]

Ok so tbh the idea was that we shoul have a weekly event: LMC ArmA3 night starting this saturday 12pm PST (UTC -8), the days could change between friday and saturday weekly and we could throw in other games by vote (i'll create a voting thread every sunday)

Let's get to the arma3 night idea, it would be awesome if we could get as many people as possible, i know that me, mYvm and zenphire will most likely be there, but arma3 with 3 people? well you COULD do some small scale co-op but that's it.. so EVERYONE who's coming invite your friends as well, the more the merrier
I'm gonna ask corban, russianbiskets and irishassailant if they're willing to make a new modpack for this occasion because whoever does the modpacks from those three is crazy good at it

depending on the amount of people we get we can do coop or team vs team, if you're coming sign up in this thread

anywways, gather at teamspeak's arma3 room at 12pm PST, an hour before the game so if needed we could talk you through the mod installation and other things


time zones

12PM PST is 7PM UTC (UK) or 3PM EDT (New York)

I'd be down except I can't run Arma 3. Maybe Insurgency or Unturned?

These are great ideas which I encourage wholeheartedly.

Evoke, I would suggest you talk to people in TS about this and encourage them to get involved.

We know who the people are that will actually game and those that may not. Approach those active TS groups and just mention it if you really want it to happen. From experience, you have to show up on that day as well and approach people.  It takes a little to get started, but if it's initially fun, then it will grow.

At the present moment, using our forums to get the word out is not the best medium to do so since many people are developing relationships, gaming and chatting more through TS. You can reach critical mass through TS and then point towards the forums.

Now that i got a decent laptop i've decided to come back to the arma night idea and been hosting games practically every day for a couple weeks now.

BUT!

IT GETS BETTER!

I'll be renting a 20 slot arma3 server with a headless client to improve server stability (and my FPS because hosting and playing kills it, at least on a laptop) and it should be up within 24 hours of this post!
It'll be running my modpack which is avaliable in my TS office's information panel with instructions how to install it. Now i'd like to have a vote for what the server's name will be so feel free to post ideas :)

The server is by foxgaming servers, the rent is $25/mo and I'll be glad to pay for it because it's not much, but if you feel like it then you can also pitch in, just message me about it or something :)
 (yes, i know i could get a 50 slot server for $25 but the headless client option improves everything by a landslide)

Also, i feel that i need to apologize to bizkets because he had been hosting the arma server every now and then and also had plans for a dedicated server but i responded to people's complaints that his server is only up for a few hours and about once per week so i took it up to myself to be a better host.

dis been done!

server info:

|LMC| official arma3 liberation server || PW and modpack: voip.lmcgaming.com:9164

IP: 104.255.64.158:2302
PW: 23

mission right now: Liberation: Bornholm (ported by Evoke)
features: a danish island with many thick forests and varied terrain (flat fields and thick hilly forests), opfor uses generic russian equipment and CSAT vehicles

modpack:
http://withsix.com/p/arma-3/collections/LasaNOZVjUGVo9_sYVSzew/Whole-Lotta-Altis-EVKEDIT-modpack

blastcore smoke grenade fix (UPDATE FOR DEDI!):
http://puu.sh/msaSA/3cc9482d87.7z

LHD carrier:
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=27648

bornholm island, russianGRU_mas, USMC_mas, ussocom_mas and UKSF_mas: grab them from steam workshop


IMPORTANT
you can always download and install the mods manually but it's easier to keep them synced by using play.withsix which you can get from here:
http://withsix.com/download/start?type=0&basket=0

to add the LHD carrier, bornholm island and other non-pws mods to the game you need to select your game tab in pws, click game settings, click edit next to the game parameters line and then add in @bornholm;@ATLAS_LHD_Plus;@usmc_mas;@uksf_mas;@ussocom_mas;@russiangru_mas to the mod line


Other maps avaliable:

Liberation: Ural
features: a very mountainous winter map in the heart of russia, the opfor faction uses russian winter spetsnaz units, newer russian vehicles and a lot of heavy armor
Requirements: Ural map - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29611
other things: disable LHD and nimitz

Liberation: Fallujah
features: the map in general is 10x10km and fairly flat but it has the city of fallujah in the center which is approx 4x4km so prepare for heavy CQC, opfor uses generic middle eastern insurgent equipment (mostly AKs and RPGs, armed civilian vehicles and older soviet equipment),unmarked ambush zones, hidden weapons caches and there are anywhere between 7 and 21 IEDs per zone (i've modified the IED script to use almost anything from a tire to a trash pile, so stay alert!)
requirements: Fallujah ver 1.2 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=12315
other things: disable LHD and nimitz

*note: i am trying to figure out how to switch the opfor and blufor sides to mix things up, i COULD simply add US vehicles to the opfor vehicle list and rus vehicles to the current build menu but then there's the case of switching the units..


IMPORTANT! startup parameters mod line on the server, make sure yours matches (things without an @ are disabled)
Code: [Select]
-mod=@fallujah1_2;@leights_opfor;@sthud_a3;@st_gi;@st_stamina_bar;@ewk_cigs;@jsrs3;@blastcore_a3;@iansky_scope_mod;@lesh_tow;@l_align;@l_twitch;@rhs_afrusaf;@realarmor;@asdg_attachments;@asdg_jm;@asdg_jr;@hlcmods_core;@hlcmods_ak;@hlc_ar15;@hlcmods_m14;@hlcmods_g3;@hlcmods_fal;@cba_a3;@firewill_sar;@lhm_para;@burneslcac;@allinarmaterrainpack;@cup_units;@cup_vehicles;@cup_weapons;@fa18_a3;@f14d_tomcat;@rhs_afrf3;@rhs_usf3;@sab_su34;@task_force_radio;@tryk;@unit_sfx;@nimitz;@bornholm;@uksf_mas;@russiangru_mas;@usmc_mas;@ussocom_mas;@nato_russian_sf_weapons
