      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. Haha, no chinook pilots huh? You only have one and the entire team is counting on you as the only means of supplies. No pressure. Let's see. Since I'm late to the party, I'll take a pilot role on Khami. The rest I might be a cameraman.
  2. Exactly as Melon said. There is only one joint squad that is accepted, and that is Mechanized Infantry (1 APC + 6 infantry); and even in this case, you are not given any priority rights to claim any APC/IFV asset you want. If a dedicated APC squad already exists, either: An APC squad exists, capable and manning every APC available, properly: Mech Inf. squads do not receive an APC, do not have any reserve asset rights even if APC squad loses a vehicle and a new one will be respawning, and any Mech Infantry squads are immediately treated as Regular Infantry squads. An APC squad exists, but currently do not have the manpower to man all their assets: Mech Inf. squad ASKS the APC squad lead if an APC is available for your Mech squad. Mechanized squads do not have claiming rights to any APCs the Mech inf. squad may want to use; they are given the APC that the APC Squad Leader gives, such as if the APC Squad Lead had already arranged plans to use the IFV [M2 Bradley] back at base for a crewman member that may currently be driving a Stryker, LAV, or Amtrak, due to another Squad requesting Armor support but the [M2 Bradley] was not available at the time of support request; and such said crewman member is returning to base to retrieve the [M2 Bradley], leaving the Stryker, LAV or Amtrak for the Mech Inf. Squad, with confirmation from APC Squad Leader. - (Any APC/IFV unit may be substituted within the brackets [ ].) A proper APC squad does not exist: Mech inf. is free, but limited to only 1 APC of choice. Asset rules still apply; IFV's (Any "APC" with a dedicated 50 caliber weapon system or higher onboard) require both a driver and gunner. If a proper dedicated APC squad is created, even while a Mech Inf. squad may still be using an APC/IFV unit, that dedicated APC squad, upon creation, is immediately given all rights regarding all APCs/IFVs assets. They reserve the right to withdraw usage of any APCs/IFVs being fielded by Mech Infantry squads within reason (request withdrawal may be delayed if the Mech unit is in combat, and will remain delayed until the firefight is finished; at which the APC/IFV must return to base or the agreed drop zone), especially if it's the only IFV for the map. At which, standard 2 or 1 will take effect. If you don't want to lose your APC/IFV unit, make a dedicated APC squad or join the properly named APC squad. If the dedicated APC squad receives enough manpower to man all their respective assets properly and becomes a full squad, any remaining APCs/IFVs being used by any other squad(s) or persons are all subjected to be claimed for the APC squad, even if any other squads or persons "held the APC unit longer". Properly named dedicated APC squad reserves the highest priority for these assets. Remember, you MUST name your squad "Mech Inf." CLEARLY within your squad name correctly, in order to be acknowledged as a Mechanized Infantry squad. "Alpha, Bravo, Foxtrot, Echo, ect." are squad names for Regular Infantry squads, and is not a proper Mechanized Infantry squad name. You will be considered asset stealing and punished accordingly if you take an APC with these default names. Keep in mind, your primary role is still Infantry, so do not fuss if you only receive low performance APCs. The APC squad may require the higher end APCs/IFVs to provide support for the entirety of the team. You get what you are given. Any other type of joint squad is void, and is treated as a Regular Infantry squad. A joint-asset squad may be considered if less than 5 human players are present on the server, and is severely overrunned, out-numbered and/or out-manned by the opposing force. This is an exception and not an established rule. Asset rules are still in effect, and if an asset squad is properly created, they are immediately given their associated asset rights. Above this human player number, dedicated assets squad(s) must be created. As with any of the rules, the human player count mandating the required creation of dedicated asset squads are left ultimately to the judgement and decision of the senior Administrator present, within reason. Such judgement and decision will be held at the integrity and responsibility of the commanding Administrator. If an Admin is not present, the default human player count "5" will be used.
  3. Like hell! If one nasty civilian costs me 8 marines, he's going to be paying the price!
  4. Hey, that doesn't sound too bad. Questioning civies in the field may lead to some interesting situations.
  5. Nice, put me up up as Trans on all maps as well.
  6. Good ol' Dr. Mikel. Footage from Karbala has come through.
  7. I was just watching that part. I'm trying to call the two bad guys out, and everyone's just laughing.
  8. Hey, what the hell? This isn't an obituary boys, don't you try writing me off. I made it back alive, so there's more news reports coming in. Between Mectus's "I was instructed to shoot to miss but I'll just spray and still hit the all-important cameraman", Torval's and Opiak's "Hey, I got an idea, let's go up this 3 story apartment building and die, leaving Recon isolated and stranded" and don't forget Galatic's "I know you're still climbing down, but I'm going to take my rope back and watch you fall 3 stories down." I don't know how I got home with just shattered legs and some shrapnel from a frag. I honestly enjoyed all three maps, especially with the switch up in Ramiel. It gave some nice bonding time with the Seals/Pilot boys, and Ted/Sparky's 50 cal. I believe they all just wanted to bond me to some rock and throw me in the water. Nothing goes the way it's plan on first contact with the enemy, and you boys did pretty well. Thanks Ted, really enjoyed it. I really still think the Seals were trying to kill me.
  9. Breaking News: We, here at INN, received reports that US Marines are being redeployed back in the Middle East in response to the rise of insurgency activity around the region. We will be bringing you further information about this new development as it unfolds. Our reporter has sent in the footage from Karbala; combat in the eyes of the reporter.
  10. The 3rd day of filming has been pushed back to Thursday, 15 October 2015, at 12:00pm PRT due to time differences.
  11. Got the footage. There will be the final 3rd day of filming on Wednesday, 14 October 2015, tentatively, at 12:00pm PRT. More information will be release closer to the date.
  12. PRT, Hawaii Time zone.
  13. Should be fine, I've hosted on other games before just got to find which ports.
  14. Yeah, we're going to need a private server. Just got to set up my ports, if I am correct.
  15. Alright, filming crew, at 6:00 PRT we have a second day of filming that will be happening today, 12 October 2015 for additional scenes and retakes. Originally had our second day of filming tomorrow, 13 October 2015, but turns out I've got a meeting during that time. It is short notice, but we just need a few cast this time.
