      VG Server Standard Maintenance & Updates - Thursday 0300 ZULU (Wednesday night for USA)   06/15/2018

      All VG Game Servers including TS3 and Falcon BMS will be going down for standard maintenance and updates on Thursday June 21st at 0300 ZULU (which will be Wednesday evening in the USA).  Downtime is estimated to be 5 hours, but could be shorter (or longer) depending on a number of factors.  TS3 and Falcon BMS may be restored faster, and we may get these servers back online before moving on to other tasks.

No one touch the Rotation Swap buttons in TCAdmin -- this system is offline and has been, and updates like this require a manual update of my rotation system.  I've not done that since it's offline, so just be sure it's not manually done in TCAdmin and nothing will screw up.  Thanks!

? to Melon... did you apply the updates to the other two PR servers as well, or just the main PR COOP?

1 event server

1 test server for fastjack INS and upcoming D13 maps 

Okay. Double bad luck maps. This should be pretty cool. Not to mention I can't wait to play INS again or at least test the maps.

Well fastjack has been really busy from the work he showed me yesterday.

the maps I am currently making are for now just fixes to the original maps. These fixes include 

- more spawnpoints for bots

- more precapped flags for bots

- fix of deadspawnpoints for bots

- change of defence and attack priority for bots

- longer cap times for humans

- random mainbase spawner for bots.

 

The first wave of maps coming out will be aimed for implementation to vanilla PR as they just fix the everyday bugs and screwups.

 

the later wave of maps will include my hardcore maps where you will face defeat if no teamwork is accomplished. (No heavy assets on bluefor only logitrucks)

True story. Really close to a burnout. No time to play. 

@Double:

I found a solution for the houseofpain staircase and how we can navmesh them without that horizintal/vertical/horizontal/vertical navmesh thingy. When we do it like you suggested (chirurgopcial method) you have to add a navstatic as ramp in an 45° angle to the staircase. If you have once this piece of puzzle, it will be perfect.

Sidenote: The constructionsite buildings have the same problem with the staircases.

Maybe we should start a thread about this stuff.

Just some constructive criticism....

 

Might be best to start with this one,

- fix of deadspawnpoints for bots

and then play it/test it.... The entire dynamic of PR was changed by this "bug" and restoring it would very well change the way PR is viewed and played.  This is the core issue with PR COOP right now, and many other concerns might fade away, or at least pose less of an immediate concern.  Simply fixing this one thing would solve >75% of the current issues with PR COOP (going through the motions of capping, with no resistance from bots because they do not spawn on the flag you are trying to neutralize).  Just FYI.

 

Just from a programming standpoint, it would be wise to test each change you noted one at a time, building upwards, or it may be difficult to identify problems down the road.

All the points listed are core issues determined by fastjack me and others. As these issues can be solved relatively quick I will start working on those. They will be tested on a D13 map (as you don’t want to corrupt original map) before been added to the update of PR (fastjack will forward the update to become added to vanilla PR)

Hells yea!  And thanks for answering a followup question before it was asked:  So glad it will be able to be part of a future PR update once completed/tested!!!!  The future of PR COOP is looking bright, indeed!  Best of luck, guys!
