      VG Servers are Down - *UPDATED* TS3 Server is back; some game servers still offline, updated estimate is a few more days until game servers are back online...   04/15/2017

      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. " Assets squads may be locked if the squad leader is waiting for a slow loading player. (Friend who is going to fly cobra with player) It cannot be locked if there are other assets to use. " Too me. This Suggests you may lock the squad if the squad is based around one two man asset. This rule isn't exactly clear on the topic but It does seem unfair to lock a squad with multiple assets because you want your friends to have them. - It would work if people were reasonable and would give it to for instance Brian next round. But lets be honest. That's not going to happen so if the rule is literally you can lock squads so your friends can have assets then its punishing people for not being able to pay for a better computer because Hell if I know. Maybe Brian has 4 teenage kids a wife and a mortgage and insurance hes paying. Hardly seems fair.
  2. Would say AMD, over NVIDIA just cant beat the price comparison. Any draw backs (Which i've never suffered personally.) are pretty much worth the essentially half price. Plus you wont actually feel those drawbacks for enough years that saving a few each year for your next build will cover it easily. Also heard a lot of complaints about NVIDIA Drivers being a pain. Ram everyone has said it. 2x16GB Because why not future proof. That Tower case should be fine and probably leaves air-cooling as a legitimate option if you don't want to spend the extensive sum required for WaterCooling. Worth it but only if your running pretty hot as it is now. Power supplies as already noted Get yourself a good brand I use SuperFlower and have only praise. 80+ Platinum is definitely recommended.
  3. The units page has been around for about a year now. Its pretty low profile though.
  4. Hey man! Welcome!
  5. Hell of a class game.

Sometimes, arma just gets it right. Never seen this death animation before and never since. http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/688271717930828491/4F6328442BD467BC6BC0231537711D3B2E87C7EB/ Some hardcore combat in base. http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/540776539670738211/5EE62F63090EA6258E65736A8A437D9BE0B913BC/ Did someone say bunkerbuster? http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/520512150737798131/AC9A7C9DE872BB1FCAF09F6F5769CDD7AF8B8FE0/ Love firing out the RHS humvees!
  7. Cheers for editing them Sem, I have like 800 pictures or something stupid so I'll be reserved with them:P
  8. We had a session today with Bradley's.. Was epic fun, Communicating with my respective squadleader "Calv" Via shortrange radio keeping him nice and close. Epic action lots of explosions lots of casualties on both sides. Victory!
  9. Take a tonne of screenshots weekly ingame, thought I'd make a place to collect these thats more public than my steampage. Sem offered to sort the Links so cheers for that one buddy! Headed into a city with the intend to destroy a factory complex, things went pretty south. Headed in for a touchdown with 3xLittlebirds and a Blackhawk, very tight spacing. My machinegunner showing everyone what overwatch is really about! Pre-mission briefing and warm-up. Successful mission with only a single fatality. As you can probably tell, Me and TEDF had a very interesting battle behind this vehicle. House full of friendlies got hit by a T-72 Toughest and most inspiring car I've ever used for cover. "Extract is canceled." If you look closely, there's more than just my plane and a burning plane in this picture.. New guys showing very good Discipline. The lovely view of Arma 3.
  10. I do agree A message would be helpful but You've got to decide on one that covers the base you need without Alienating newplayers or making them feel unwelcome. Not a problem with the suggestion for a message as long as its not all like "Y'all new players need to get lost!" orientated;)
  11. DonChris LAN_WROTE ... Also happens that there is "beginner" or "train" squads, wich in my opinion, are not welcome to the VG COOP, cause the VG comunity is based on experience and TeamPlay across all squads. Maybe =VG= could expand the Server Message showing in the upper left screen to make clear that this ist not a train server, as i understand that VG COOP isnt a train server. I'm not sure where you came under the opinion that VG is not a training friendly server because its definetly where I learned to play PR as well as a few other of the VG Members. I'm pretty sure its always been intend to be a friendly atmosphere where experienced players are more than welcome to share tips with newer players. - I Dont think its very TeamPlay based to tell people they cant play with us because they have too little experience. I thought that in all honesty all VG servers were intended to be a friendly place where Veterans and newguys play together and produce a productive atmosphere. Where else are people going to learn teamplay? By themselves somewhere?.... - I feel my posts sometimes come across somewhat aggressive so I feel I Should clarify this isnt any jabs Its just a discussion. I dont think really that a message is needed its not awfully difficult to iron out a newguy and teach him how to play at least a rifleman in 2 minutes with a bit of effort. I Think its more than enough to just be positive like I hear of M823us and be respectful to new guys. Do you really want to put up a wall and put a sign on it saying newguys not welcome here? I'm guessing not. I like to think I play on all of the VG servers with the intention of training to get better at what I do otherwise theres very little point to it at all for me. (Feel free to tell me NO! Your wrong! + Insert opinion)
