      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. I actually don't have an issue with it. If you're a squad leader you're going to have to work with what you have and if you're only 10 people on Muttrah you can organize it to defend it and wait for reinforcements to come. I have done this multiple times in the not so recent past with some really great players and we had 'fun' struggling our way defending. And eventually assaulting. That's part of the charm of the game. Fight together. I understand the objections some have but come on. If you have five good people in your squad you should be able to defend effectively no doubt. We once held Muttrah docks for something like 90 minutes with pain truthfully and only about eight players by keep rebuilding our defenses playing smart and having fun while doing it. Then the reinforcements arrived and we finally had air support, trans and other teams to support us and we still won it at the end. Best squad of course. It was pretty awesome. In short don't whine and make the best of it.
  2. Well guys. I'm sorry but I have to cancel. Sorry.
  3. We're together a long time.
  4. How did you get a picture of my wife's ass?
  5. @=VG= Double_13 The word "pineapple" in English was first recorded to describe the reproductive organs of conifer trees (now termed pine cones). When European explorers discovered this tropical fruit in the Americas, they called them "pineapples" (first referenced in 1664, for resemblance to the pine cone). In the scientific binomial Ananas comosus, ananas, the original name of the fruit, comes from the Tupi word nanas, meaning "excellent fruit", as recorded by André Thevet in 1555, and comosus, "tufted", refers to the stem of the fruit. Other members of the Ananas genus are often called pine, as well, in other languages. In Spanish, pineapples are called piña ("pine cone"), or ananá (ananás) (for example, the piña colada drink). Agreed it can 'go' on pizza, but it's pretty disgusting...
  6. LOL check out the other introductions mate. They range from funny to awkward to kinda weird to straight and simple. But they're all, mostly, good people Anyhow. Welcome back to the server! Have you changed your ways?
  7. I thought I had applied for a tank gunner position - perhaps with Carkidd? But I think I didn't reply. My bad. So this please and if possible another gunner position other than that happy to do infantry. Thanks!
  8. Oh I see now. Gullible me... It's an ancient unban request. I will leave it there.
  9. I had some massive PC issues (keyboard and mouse failure mostly) and had to give up But was it fun? I'm still pissed off it didn't work out for me but at least tell me you had an awesome time.
  10. He doesn't remember but because of @WCCBadploy and @FastJack I know how to play this game. Things have changed however so we need more active people like you two to teach the noobs.
  11. Obviously admins need to 'feel' the server and just keep it clean and bend the rules when applicable. It's not a Nazi job where you have to enforce the rules at all times. It's about fun. I had previously heard some rumours and adjustments (you must join a squad) that turned out to be false and not the rule of thumb let alone the general rule. So it's good we keep talking . Now as for the APC discussion, I think we all agree that jeeps and trucks are up for grabs to the squad that uses them effectively. My only point is that you can have a full infantry squad cooperating in an APC and thus winning a map. Or you can have a bunch of guys using armoured personnel carriers as tanks. That's it. Personally I have seen little proper usage of APC's by an APC squad and therefore I am a big fan of the IFV (Mechanical Infantry) squad as a rule suggestion. In some maps this should be the rule per definition (imho) and it would be fun for everyone, noobs and veterans. With Operation Marlin for example I think that all infantry squads should be IFV-I, II etc. and get it sorted. But that's just my opinion and like all opinions they're assholes because everyone has one. I just want to throw it out there.
  12. On the calendar mate. The Mrs. has been told to go out with the 'girls' so I am all set. Just curious to know who else is attending and what roles? Myself. I sign up for infantry but happy to be gunner on any asset as well. Hoorah!
  13. But back on track. All in favour of focus on infantry and thus priority is set on utilizing APC's in the most effective way meaning Mechanized Infantry. Say Aye. Those who are opposed say Ney.
  14. That's up to the individual squad leader. Personally I see an 8-man outfit for effective TOW usage as such: One TOW humvee. For tank-destroyer purposes. Driver, gunner and medic. (Medic evacs always on target) One .50 cal. humvee. For anti-infantry support and transport. The rest of the team. Team is: Two medics. One for each vehicle. One heavy AT. Back up for TOW 2nd vehicle. A machine gunner or AR. Second vehicle only for infantry engagement. A combat engineer. Fix the cars. A rifle man. Supplying. A grenadier. Bomb the shit out of infantry. AT units. A squad leader. The moron that is tasked to take charge. Pending on the maps. But typically yeah it is a combination for the win. At least I think so.
  15. Mechanical infantry is fine for this. I never saw APC squads whining that it's their asset. I don't see the issue. Call yourself Mechanical infantry and go for it. On a sidenote. I am no fan of the APC squad gets the assets rule because there's far more 'fun' in a Mech squad and it's more effective. Especially because most people only 'tank' with APC's anyway. I would be in favour of bumping Mech Inf to being the first priority for these assets. But obviously that's just a suggestion
