      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

I won with my bot team on Lashkar Valley. :)

Lashkar only appears to be a tough nail to crack if we lose the Chinook and points 2&3. 5 will be a main battleground to start but if we lose it we can fall back to 2&3 and go full defense. If you ask me... But what do I know ;)

Best to download the current standalone version of PR directly from the PR web site

It is just under 8GB.

Then check the first post in this thread for Melons Magic Maps.

All I gotta say about the event and especially the Ramiel(which i might not be able to play) is remeber one good qoute lads: 

When I go home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do you do it man? What, you some kinda war junkie?" You know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.

Hurah!

One RPG and the Chinook is toast. I bet it happens. :P

@Kavelenko oh yeah. We lose the Chinook we're in deep shit but we can handle it. I am 100% sure we can. The Ramiel map has me more worried. But then again as Melon pointed out there should be no insta RPG and Ted has a plan. :)

We'll see it should be good fun!

@WCCBadploy

Oh for sure the 'master' plan will change in battle. But better to have plan A.) and one or more fall back scenarios than no plan at all. I like the idea of having a battleplan like Ted suggested and preferably back up plans rather than getting stuck last minute. No offense, but these maps that Melon made have some tough nuts to crack and I love it. But I also want to win them. So we need to, I think, come prepared because Melon built-in some severe weaknesses that will put us all to the test. Again awesome but we must be weary. It's not like we're going to do Muttrah again.

I have add a list with currently known squads to melons original post. If you wish to join or run a squad please notify us so we can update the list. 

For the people who are playing with assets on certain maps please inform your SL that you wont be playing that specific map.

As of right now my squad is:  PissBlitz (on all but one map), Xenalite, JCLA3114, Ryan TT, and SoggySpartan. Looking for at least two more to commit to all maps and one to fill in gaps as needed. Thank you all in advance.

Guys there is a reason why melon didn't opt for a squad sign up. Please make sure to have room for random players as well.

Good to see Xenalite and Soggy locked in. Just to update on where I'm at with the other squad:

  • InchPincherToo
  • Rotblut - on maps he's not flying
  • cptn_wonderful

I'm waiting to hear back from Faraday and Tom Sawyer, and several others.

Can we name our squad: Alpha Group please?

Well tedf noted it already. however we can just swap it around on certain maps

I think that moving around the Cheeki Breeki squad wont happen since the vodka guys noted they want to play together( shout random russian crap at people prob spam CheekiBreeki in squad chat and be drunk.)
Last time skitales was wasted he drove me to some interesting places on kozelsk  that where quite useful if it comes to watching threes.

However I am sure that if need we can swap squads around. However i hope people are capable enough to make fair squads.

@=VG= keed I think there's plenty of room for "_random_" players. This is, if I understood it correctly, more about our volunteer SL's getting their shit sorted and filling slots to make the event a success by recruiting people. I personally invited a few Dutch guys and I am sure they're more than welcome to join any squad they wish to, heck, I can give up a spot or two if need be. We just want it to be fun and successful. But we also need to organize a few things in order to win the maps. Success = people.

Sounds good to me! I'm definitely in for a Friday night PR Sesh!

Considering taking in a small 4 man squad for "special forces stuff" if anyone is interested.

If not, Ill just jump in and see what's happening on the day.

Okay, so lots of interest delovoping including PR pubbies, which is good! I want to make it clear any rule breakage will be treated with zero tolerance, expect a heavy handed approach toward deliberate griefing.

 

We still need some more commanders, lashkar could very well use one with his CO rallypoints.

 

To give some insight on gameplay, I've made a 2 minute delay between kit requests,  as well as limiting rifleman to 1 per squad. Both to stop rifleman ammo spam.

FOBs, Razorwire, and sandbags need to be shoveled

I can take the Command over the Lashkar Op if no one else wants it.
