      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!

  1. Welcome to the Site. Thanks for posting and being part of the VG Online Community Spirit. See you out there and enjoy the adventure.
  2. Great Stuff there Matey!! I can certainly relate!! Many of us have similar "Return to PR" stories. Gaming should be fun and relaxing too. Especially in good company of which is in abundance in the VG 'Verse. Many a time I have had a clear head and new focus after a good gaming session with great team players. See you out there.
  3. Welcome. LOL!! The Merry Players and Team Jokers are always welcome. Bringing joviality to game play is very much a plus. A must have for any community looking to lift the spirits and fire the imagination of fellow Gamers. After all, there are many ways to enjoy the adventure! See you out there.
  4. Its your birthday, Its your birthday, many happy returns!!

  5. We see you!! You are duly acknowledged and noted!! LOL!!
  6. Welcome, Welcome!! Thank you for looking in on the VG Community. Your support and camaraderie is greatly appreciated. Especially as you are interested in roles that help your team mates.

  7. Welcome to the VG Universe and Fantastic Community. Thanks for dropping by and introducing yourself. It is always great to meet a dedicated team player and skilled pilot. I and many others look forward to seeing you in game, soon.
  8. Happy Birthday, Matey!!

  9. Great stuff there Guys, Good luck with the project. I am sure many of us all over the world would like to see the final production.
  10. Well Done TEDF and all who took part. Pity I couldn't make it, due to prior commitments. Nice one on the videos. Here's hoping the follow up event is even better!! Onwards and Upwards, Guys!!
  11. Welcome to the community. It is great to see the diversity in games and game play support that exists in the =VG= Universe. It can only be richer since you came aboard.
  12. Welcome Soldier. Thanks for dropping by and giving the community a shout out!! It is always great to meet fellow team players who look for roles that support and ensure their team's success at whatever they do. See you out there, Matey.
  13. TEDF is on the money. VG servers expect the best from any one looking to lead a squad. It is imperative that they take the welfare of the whole squad into consideration when making decisions of who stays and who goes. In direct combat there is sometimes no time to be "nice". It can be a split second between losing the advantage and achieving ones objective. A judgment call is needed in most cases . After all it may sometimes need a kick for some folks to get the message. Regarding Mic or comms use, I am with TEDF on this 100%. I hark back to the heyday of the WCC in the early "00s", when we had a great player called "Asabit" We never heard him/her on TS or in game but we always saw his/her team supporting action and text in the thick of the fight on BF 1942 Desert Combat Mod. I have since seen many others with similar attributes in my gaming adventure. I never usually reserve slots. I think it is best to let every player get a chance to be part of what I do. It is not for everyone and as folks drop out others make it in. If the motivation of the player is to support the squad/team then they usually do not need any prompting or micromanagement. Asabit, where ever you are, Rock On Mate!!
  14. Greetings and welcome to the community. I am sure over time you will find your comfort zone with words, similar to what you do in game.
  15. Howdy Matey, How's it going?

      Great!! Charting new territory with 3D printing and VR tech along with the day job.

      Good call on the Admin confirmation criteria. Some times folks miss the point of it all.

      Thanks for keeping the faith and being the lynch pin of this great community.

      See you in game some time!

      I was working with an architects practice that used 3D printers for modelling trees for their large models. Interesting stuff. I've since left to become a full time network engineer.

       

      The people that make up the community make it easy to keep the faith :). Every once in a while people might need to be nudged in the right direction, but the community runs its self due to the people that are a part of it. 

       

      Hopefully I can join everyone on the field sooner rather than later!
