    Rush Reforged

    Hello and thank you for all the replies! Restricted zones is definitely something we will be adding in the near future to mitigate people camping the spawns too harshly, as well as prevent them from flanking too far, to keep the fights in a reasonable area. The countdown timer seems like something easy to add, currently it only says "Next round will begin soon". I'll add a counter so it's clear you can just stay on the server. Alternating teams is something I really wanted to do originally, but currently the name tag system by Bohemia (which we are using) is giving me a headache by showing enemy players tags when forcing them to swap teams. I'm not sure how to fix this at the moment, but as soon as that's cleared I'll make it so one team defends then attacks before rotating the map. Better kill detection is something I was looking at, but sadly the engine itself sometimes report damage coming out of nowhere essentially, making it impossible to trace back who actually dealt the damage, hence this is something I'll have to wait for Bohemia to fix. Modded weapons are definitely a good idea, we just want to keep the overall download footprint reasonable and keep balancing in mind, but there will definitely be new weapons on our server sooner or later. This is something easy to customize for other hosters. Regarding the GitHub repo: We are just in the process of publishing a new map that's hopefully going to be a real experience, after that and once the zone restriction utilities are included, the repo will become public as we feel like then is the right time for others to build maps with the utils we are able to provide, expect a week max of delay until then, just depends on how fast I get the zone restrictions done and some other small quirks! Thanks again for checking out the mode and providing feedback!
  2. Rush Reforged is a recreation of the fast-paced Battlefield Rush game mode in Arma Reforger. Workshop item name: Rush How does the game mode work? The map is divided into multiple "stages", each stage containing at least one objective, so-called MCOMs. Attackers have to reach these objectives, arm them and guard them until they detonate, whereas defenders need to stop the attackers from doing so. Detonating all objectives of a stage will advance the match to the next stage and set of objectives. The attacking team has a limited amount of respawn tickets and time available to complete each stage. Features - Attackers and defenders with customized loadouts - 2 maps with random weather variants - Customized kill feed - A custom scoring system for kills or objective related tasks - Leaderboard with kills, deaths and score at the end of each match How do I play? Search for "Rush" on the workshop and install the latest version. In the server browser, searching for "Rush" in the top right corner should present you with some servers to test the game mode on 🙂 Our own server is reachable under the name Rush Reforged Official. Feedback Please don't hesitate to let me/us know what you think of the game mode and how it could be improved. We are also looking for new locations on Everon to create maps with!

  3. I've finally found some time to put together a simple to use small interface, it doesn't cover all features by a mile but it's sufficient for most people that want to do a quick checkup on their items https://sqi.workshopcrawler.com/
  4. Hi! Workshop Crawler is currently undergoing a major rewrite which will result in a bunch of nice goodies for everyone to play with: A public API will be built ontop of the new backend, allowing everyone to perform queries against the database: The public API will allow anyone to query by a list of hashes or given workshop object ID (and specification which files in this object to query for) This theoretically upons up possibilities like automatically querying for reuploads and sending a notification out when reuploads are found, maybe someone will build a small tool like this to make everyones live easier 🙂 This also means you will be able to look for reuploads of files without having to have your own files uploaded to the workshop anymore! Yay! In addition to the query API endpoints, the public API will also serve information such as when new versions of a workshop mod were uploaded, include a file list for each indexed version of the mod (this allows for viewing differences between mod versions) and other meta information such as actual total size and all other information which the Steam API spits out. The current frontend will remain online for some time, but will eventually be replaced by a new improved web-interface. As the backend is the primary focus for now, I cannot give any details on what the new interface will cover feature-wise, but expect it to be more user friendly and offer more features. New backend and public API come first. Also, now's the best time to throw in ideas what you'd like to see to be part of the public API / new web-interface. Right now I'm building the new backend indexing tools which will run 24/7, keeping the database up-to-date. Sadly, running the servers for this has been getting relatively more expensive for me, as my current income is limited and I might not be able to cover the server costs anymore in the near future. If you wish to ensure that this tool will remain online, please consider joining my Patreon.
  5. I'll redesign the result page eventually or create a seperate one which will display the data in much more detailed and viewer friendly way. I've noticed the current design is especially bad when scanning for big mods. Thanks Should be back up again, I ran into some issuese :P Is that still the case?
  6. Small update: I've completed revamped the website (finally after two months of downtime) and the website now features some more additions aswell as deep scanning (looking for files in PBOs, so not even repacking can save you). I hope this is still usefor for some people. I'm currently still testing the new page, hence the tmeporary beta.workshopcrawler.com domain, so expect certain issues. Feel free to tell me about them here or on Discord. https://beta.workshopcrawler.com/ I will add FAQ to the page tomorrow so most questions are answered straight away.
  7. Sadly this does not work for rented servers. You need full root access to your machine in order to use ARA.

    Join a server by a link

    https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Steam_browser_protocol steam://connect/<IP or DNS name>[:<port>][/<password>] "steam" is a protocol which every OS knows, once you install steam on it.
  9. We had some issues the past 2 days with our server hoster going nuts and ham, but it seems to be gone now. Ara shouldn't disconnect from the masterserver anymore now.
  10. Searching by file names was/will soon be available again, however this only applies to mods uploaded to the Steam Workshop. However what I can do is make a small desktop tool that you put into a folder alongside your mod folder and it generates a readable file for the website. You then just go onto the website and select that "summary file" and search according to that.
  11. Yes you can, there's a dedicated server application your normal Argo gamefiles
  12. Please note that whenever you update your mod, each file that you changed will have a different hash resulting in less results for older reuploads, since they still contain old version of that pbo, but not the newest one. I will change the system today to keep track of hashes across versions so that, even after an update, you can still find older versions of your mod. Regarding Em: I don't know how many pbos the mod contains at the moment, but a just created scan brought up 8 reuploads, only of the paa image though. I'll look into as to whether this is a system error.
