  1. Background Information For the past year and a half, I've been working on building and bringing together a server community. I've been a frequent Arma Life player (mainly Takistan Life, when it was still based in Arma 2), so I have a strong passion for RP game modes. I have tried and failed many times in the process but it hasn't discouraged me, I am still motivated to reach my goal. While playing on popular Taki Life, and Altis Life servers I felt that something was missing. Although I loved the chaotic environment of Takistan Life, and the never ending mischief of terror bombings and police shenanigans, it got quite old after a while. My main goal for this project is to create a profitless RP community that thrives and is sustained by passionate members, yet can still be fun and interesting for beginners. I plan on making this a modded Life RPG, though I am completely liberal to the idea, and if that isn't what you guys want, then I am willing to listen to your voices. However, keep in mind that this 'proposal' is based around a modded Life. Overview I plan to significantly increase the amount of content for the civilian faction, in order to boost interest for that particular faction so that players will be more motivated to be part of the carefully designed economic system I plan to implement. Furthermore, I plan to add a level system, or some sort of skill based stat chart that will enable players to access certain features that will only be available to sufficiently experienced players (ie. Mining will become more efficient as you level up your mining abilities) as well as basic abilities (Stamina, Accuracy, etc.) improving over time. Though this idea is still very young. I also plan to add a simple crafting system so that players will be able to craft a few basic objects. Obviously the system will not be extremely advanced because this isn't a survival game mode, though I remain optimistic. I believe that a justice system is one of the most important aspects of an RPG, so I will definitely be implementing a court system. I will not be whitelisting the cop faction, though players who are willing to join will need to partake in a short training course and agree to the cop faction's terms of agreement. For the main cop faction, I am planning on adding several branches of law enforcement. We have a lot of other unique features planned. If you are interested in learning more about our project feel free to hop on our teamspeak and talk to us personally. Release So when will this be available to play? I am working on this project with only a single partner at the moment who is helping me with the web development. I am developing the Arma side of the mod completely alone. I hope to have a rudimentary beta by the end of January 2016, though development is still very slow. As you can see, I have all of the concepts and features planned out, and I have a basic understanding of how to code 95% of what I am planning to offer. All I really need now is manpower. This is why I am reaching out to the community, and asking for support. If this results in positive feedback from you guys then that would mean a lot to me and would really motivate me in going forward. If any of you happen to be interested in contributing to this project, or helping out with development then I will be sure to find a way to thank you. I am not looking for money, I am only interested in contributing to the Arma community, and to create something that everyone can enjoy. So if there is anything any of you would like to add or recommend, please voice your opinion and I will listen to anything you guys suggest if I think it would benefit the community. Edit: We are looking for a terrain editor/map creator! Anyone who can fill this position please add me on steam. Steam: pixelmonkey1 Teamspeak: tssyd1.vilayer.com:10060
  2. Hi all. I have a question about some wasteland servers. Few years ago i played on a wasteland server that don't have shops at all. I try to find these servers but can't. All servers i got when i filter sandbox the server list is wastelands with gun shops genaral shops and no loot in buildings only in cars. I like very very much the buildings loot wasteland servers like battle royal but wasteland. Can some one tell me how to find those kind of servers?
  3. Hello, Here is my issue today! I have a script the spawns ai for tasks. I want it to be executed in the server init since this MP, but modules are initialized before the initServer.sqf. What happens is... since the modules (tasks specifically) are initialized first mission triggers thinks that all are completed since the ai units were spawned after the modules initialization (I hope you are still following). When I place the script in the init all is well, however this would execute every time a player joins...correct? Is my only option to script out tasks rather then using the 2d tasks module in the editor? If so, does someone want to give and straight forward how to create tasks and sync it to script trigger and all MP players? ie. create, cond, act on, success. Any help would be awesome!

  4. Hello, I was wondering if it is possible to save the mission before rebooting the server, so that after the reboot the mission is in the same state? If so how? The mission is an insurgency using EOS, COS and some other scripts. I do have saving set to false and auto save, but I just want to know if it is possible to even load a save mission on the server. We spend time taking sectors and then reboot and all progress is gone. Not the end of the world, but it would awesome to actually beat the mission. init: // Disable saving enableSaving [false, false]; https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/enableSaving Ideas? Thanks, Travis aka dubl

  7. Kickstarter is currently LIVE until Sat, Nov 14 2015 at http://kck.st/1jrdbZ7 Help this game be made! Description from their website http://warofrights.com/: About the game War of Rights is a multiplayer game set during the perilous days of the American Civil War, in the Maryland Campaign of September, 1862. Campfire Games is devoted to presenting the gruesome and glorious elements of the period, while maintaining the highest level of historical accuracy and realism as is possible with the wonders of CRYENGINE. Players in the game will be able to play on multiple battlefields of the campaign, from the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers where the Siege of Harper's Ferry took place, to the ridgelines of South Mountain, and to the meandering waters of Antietam Creek at the Battle of Antietam. Additionally, players will also be able to choose from a list of regiments that fought in each battle as well as what rank to fight as, whether they want to slog it out as a lowly private, or if you want to orchestrate the carnage and mayhem as a major general. Uniforms and bodily features will all be customizable for other players to see as you march and fight in the lines of battle according to the tactics of the period. As a General, you will operate in your headquarters equiped with a map of the battlefield and constantly receiving reports of friendly and enemy positions. Send out new orders to the regiments to move forward, or fall back - all in real time. The orders will move down the chain of command, to the Colonels, Majors, down to the Captains in charge of the individual regiments, all of whom have the option to follow the orders of their trusted commander, or rebel against his wishes and fight as you see fit.

  9. Hey guys, quick question (Which maybe useful for others to read). What are some ways I can debug my MP code without having to go actually online and/or pay for a dedicated server? (I also noticed Here that the content has disappeared, how come?!?) Also, I was not able to join my own dedicated server as I keep on getting kicked. So since my PC is beastly, I launched Arma 3 two times with different roles: 1st Arma 3: Hosted a server WITHOUT arma3server.exe. 2nd Arma 3: Joined the server as the client. Is this another way of testing client-side for multiplayer scripting? Thanks, :ok: Rawner135
  10. Hello, I have been starting to get things in order for a side search and destroy task to run. So, I have been reading the wiki, but I have run into an issue with a simple trigger test to learn how to script one. What am I doing wrong with the trigger? Once I get that working I can start to figure the trigger !alive or destroyed object bit. Thanks, dubl init: null=[] execVM "scripts\seekanddestory.sqf";
  11. I'm having some problems hosting a dedicated Arma 3 server on linux. I set the server up following this guide: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Dedicated_Server#Instructions_.28Linux_o.2Fs.29 The server used to work like that until several months ago, but when I'm trying to use it again now, I cannot get any missions started. As a player, I can connect, select a mission and press OK, but once the mission finishes loading, I find themselves back in the lobby again. If I keep pressing OK to start the mission, this will continue indefinitely. The server is running under Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS 32 bit. (I chose the 32 bit version because Arma 3 itself is 32 bit, so I thought this might lead to fewer compatibility problems.) I originally encountered the problem trying to play a custom mission with a large number of third-party mods, but to debug the problem better, I ran the server without mods and with BI missions only. This is the server.cfg: passwordAdmin = "<censored>"; //password = "<censored>"; hostname = "TMSCTI"; maxPlayers = 160; motd[]= {"Welcome to our TMSCTI server"}; voteThreshold = 1.1; voteMissionPlayers = 1; kickduplicate = 0; logFile = "server_console.log"; persistent = 1; verifySignatures = 0; allowedLoadFileExtensions[] = {"hpp","sqs","sqf","fsm","cpp","paa","txt","xml","inc","ext","sqm","ods","fxy","lip","csv","kb","bik","bikb","html","htm","biedi"}; allowedPreprocessFileExtensions[] = {"hpp","sqs","sqf","fsm","cpp","paa","txt","xml","inc","ext","sqm","ods","fxy","lip","csv","kb","bik","bikb","html","htm","biedi"}; allowedHTMLLoadExtensions[] = {"htm","html","xml","txt"}; forceRotorLibSimulation = 1; disableVoN = 1; The command line used to start the server was this: ./arma3server -config server.cfg -mod= The console output from the server can be found here: http://arma-tms.de/screenlog.0 (It's a bit too large to paste here verbatim.) I've also tried setting up a completely brand new virtual server following the original guide, but this lead to the same problem. Could someone help me with that?
  12. Helloooooo, I noticed that this was an issue for some people and noticed that it has been submitted to the devs. But, I wanted to know if there is anything I can do. Every once in a while the following pops up in the RPT. It does write like 30+ times in a minute when it happens. 20:16:26 Error: Failed to open file a3\sounds_f\vehicles\air\noises\servo_heli_comm_vertical.wav 20:16:26 Cannot load sound 'a3\sounds_f\vehicles\air\noises\servo_heli_comm_vertical.wav' Is there anything that I can do on my end to fix this on the server? Thanks, dubl
  13. Operation Hammerdown This is a coop mission recommended for 3-8 players. It has a lot of action and the difficulty depends on how you choose to complete the main task. The whole Stratis island is open for you. Approximate playing time is 2-4 hours. Dynamic respawn is available. Steam workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=513531480 I will fix a own download link soon. I have created some missions to play with friends, but this is the first time I have published one. I like my missions to be atmospheric and somewhat realistic. Please write feedback in this thread. I can't wait to hear from you guys. Basic scenario: Coordinate a surprise attack at the Statis Air Base, steal the secret documents and get out of there. Your priority is Stratis Air Base, but you can assault other bases in the area to get tactical advantages like artillery, helicopters and tanks. Go in light. Or go in heavy. Your choice. Recommended for 3 to 8 players. Credits to: Me for creating this mission :D FHQ Task Tracker Get/set loadout script from aeroson Mikie boy for addAction MP and the great community of Arma 3! Changelog: 06/09 2015 - V1.0 Bugs is squashed. Tested a multiplayer playthrough with both dedicated server and hosted server. Didn't notice any major bugs. Please let me know if you do! Feedback: Please post all feedback, bugs, etc here in this thread.

  17. Recently I started a Multiplayer server with the intent of having a friend join me (he bought and downloaded the game explicitly to play with me). But every single time he joins, he connects is stuck spectating and then it shows he disconnected, we tried removing all addons, we tried having him host and it was the same thing only from my end, we tried different maps, different settings, different circumstances (i would save the game/not save, be in lobby, be in game) nothing seams to work, some assistence would be appreciated.
  18. Hey there! In the last couple of months/weeks, I started to became more and more interested in the content-creation part of ArmA 3. I wanted to share the results, but wasn't able to achieve a really high amount of subs yet. This leads to little to no feedback at all. That's why I present my scenario in this topic. It's a 10 players PvP map settled around the village of Girna on Stratis. A team wins if it reaches the enemy flag and holds it down for 10 seconds. It features mainly close and medium ranged engagements on a pretty small map. While most of the engagements will be infantry vs infantry, it also features a small amount of vehicles in the team spawns and the middle of the map alike. Both teams have a variety of weapons and attachments to pick from, but limited amounts punish the wasting of ressources. Other objectives, like additional weapons or ammunition in the middle of the map, the ability to capture a mortar for fire support or an armed boat can be secondary targets to get an advantage over your enemy. The main difference between this and most other missions is the decent performance of this map, caused by the scale and the overall heaviness of the scripts. I always had the feeling that this game kind of lacks maps you could just "play with a few friends", without having to deal with FPS-problems, though I'm not quite sure if this even fits into what ArmA-players want to do with this game http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=476370115 If more people are interested, I'm thinking about renting a server and putting this map on it, just to see how it works out. Feedback of any kind is highly appreciated. Thank you for reading this and eventually try out the mission :)

    Exploding Cow or Rabbit

    Years ago I played a mission where cows or rabbits (cant remember which) would attack the players. The players had to kill the animals before they got within a certain distance of the player or a satchel would detonate (that was attached to the animal). Does anyone else remember this mission or who made it?

  22. Today we deployed a major title update for Take On Mars - our Early Access space exploration game. Highlights of the update include the addition of multiplayer, which enables players to establish the first human colony on Mars in co-op, plus the update implements the first survival gameplay elements. In multiplayer, people have to work together to build a self-sustaining habitat on the Red Planet. One of the key challenges there will simply be surviving the harsh conditions on Mars. With various vehicles and high tech equipment at their disposal, players will have to manage their resources, construct (pressurized) buildings, grow food, recycle waste, and conduct various scientific experiments. Multiplayer progress is recorded via a unique ‘viral’ multiplayer save system, which means that whenever someone saved the game, the save file is shared with all the players who are connected to the multiplayer session. Furthermore, the new update also packs a variety of brand new vehicles and equipment, including a drilling rig, atmospheric processor, material refinery, different types of Astronaut suits, a thruster-powered VTOL aircraft, a fork lift, and many new building parts. Last but certainly not least, a new location has been added: the Apollo 17 landing site on our own Moon. The complete list of highlights from the Take On Mars ‘Survival/Multiplayer’ update: Multiplayer 'Viral' Multiplayer save system (sends save to all connected) Pressurized buildings Drilling Rig, Atmospheric Processor, Materials Refinery 3 Astronaut suits (light, medium heavy) Inventory system (can take off suit, equip tools, eat food, and more) New vehicles (4-seat VTOL thruster-powered aircraft, Fork lift) The Moon location (Apollo 17 landing site) Many new building parts Survival elements (oxygen, food, water, vitamins, and more) Player sounds (grunts, breathing, death, and more) To enlist as a Rover Operation and/or astronaut, you can pick up the Early Access version of Take On Mars now on Steam and Store.bistudio.com .

  23. Hello everyone! I know it has been some time since we updated the main branch, and there is a good reason for it: Multiplayer. Yes, that's right, in case you have not been following things on the forums or the development build, Take On Mars now features multiplayer. At the moment this includes a cooperative mode where players can build bases and vehicles together. As I am sure many questions will come up surrounding this, I'll try to answer a few straight away: Q) What is currently possible in multiplayer? A: Everything that is possible in single player with the Mars Astronaut. That includes the following: * Building habitats from individual pieces * Printing building pieces and vehicles via the 3D Printer * Mining materials from the location, however the materials themselves are not used yet * Driving vehicles, including with friends * Full physics simulation over the net * Having fun! Q) Who can start a server? A: Anyone can start a server, simply select Multiplayer in the main menu and select Create Game. There, choose a scenario and begin! In case you are wondering who will be able to see your server, the answer is anyone! Q) I built an awesome base with a friend, but don't want to lose it, can we save the game somehow? A: Yes, the multiplayer implementation features a unique saving system. Connected players may vote for a save or the server may initiate a save directly. The server saves the game to his hard drive and sends the save file to all connected players. This means that any one of those players may then re-host that save in their own server. Q) Are our characters and their last known positions stored in the save? A: Yes, each player that joins has his character stored exactly where he left it. This can be on a hill, in a base, or falling off a cliff. In all situations, the character is stored with his health and everything intact. We will be adding an inventory soon, so the storage of your items will also be guaranteed. Q) When can we load a saved game? A: When you start to host a server you can select to start the server from stored save games on your hard disk. Information about the save is displayed when you select it. Once you start the server anew or from a save, you can load the game at any time via player vote or directly by the server. The interruption in play is very short. Q) Will future builds render my save incompatible? A: No, the save files have been written to save in a format which ensures compatibility between builds. They are in fact stored almost identically to a scenario file. Q) Take On Mars has very detailed physics simulation... Is that present in multiplayer? A: Yes, everything in multiplayer and single player is fully physically simulated, which includes vehicles, characters and so on. Yes, this does mean vehicles can be smashed in multiplayer :) Q) Did you say save similar to a scenario? Does that mean we could adjust a save into a scenario? A: Yes, a save is similar to a scenario, so with some minor editing a scenario may be derived from the save. We intend to add an option to Export Save To Scenario soon. Q) It crashed... What do I do with the crash info? A: If you started in Developer mode (the yellow Play Game button in the loader), then it could help us track down the bug. When you see the crash window appear, press Ctrl + C and then paste it into a new thread or post on the forums, along with as detailed as possible set of steps as to how the crash occurred. We do not expect you to test the game for us of course, but will appreciate feedback and bug reports :) Q) What can I expect in the next update? A: Survival elements, including oxygen simulation, using mined resources to fill habitats with air, a flatbed-truck-like vehicle for transporting larger cargoes, and an inventory for objects such as soil samples, food and water, etc. Q) When can we expect another update? A: I am heading on a 3 week vacation as of the 30th of August and will return on the 18th of September, so expect full-speed development to continue then, with an update following within two weeks. Q) Just tried the multiplayer, love it! How can I help? A: Thank you! We always appreciate when our games are enjoyed :) You can help us by giving us feedback, posting screenshots, sharing videos and spreading the word if you like it! Q) I recall the expected release date being at the end of August... Is this still true? A: In short, no. We have pushed the final release date back to allow for proper and full implementation of the multiplayer features as well as the entire Expedition One addition, both in terms of single player (Space Program) and multiplayer (survival elements, base management, additional game modes, etc). This is good news as you get highly refined content, and more of it! Q) What has changed in the game? Any chance of a change log? A: There is a change log directly accessible through the main menu, top right corner as Change Log. Alternatively, check here: mars.takeonthegame.com/changelog/mainbranch Q) I'm enjoying the game, but want to finish my in-progress Space Program. Can I go back to a previous build? A: Yes, we have added a build titled 'Legacy', which is the previous Main Branch build. Switch to this if you want to continue using the older build for now. To switch to the build, select Take On Mars in your steam library, right-click, select Properties. Switch to the BETAS tab, and select 'Legacy' in the list, ignoring password input. Q) Sounds great... Screenshots or it didn't happen!!! A: Of course, screenshots are mandatory :) There have been plenty released over the past few weeks as we have been testing the builds. Here are some highlights: Collaborative building with the 3D Printer: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=306547495 Base interior, under construction: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=305677900 Physics...

Please keep in mind this is an Early Access game, and bugs are to be expected. We are sorting them as fast as we can, and apologize for frustration some bugs may cause! Kind and sincere regards, Martin Melicharek (Project Lead)
