  1. BF3 Reality Mod

    Was just scrolling through my my youtube when i saw this: After being in development for 4 years it is available for play testing if you subscribe to the dev's patron. Not much more to be said really, the video gives some good info about the game and if you want more gameplay, TheTacticalRedneck has some more vids on his channel. Looks like it could be a PR 2.0 once fully developed and would be a nice step up from those old BF2 graphics.
  2. COD MW free day 3/10

    As far as im aware it is a free to play game/game mode separate from the full game
  3. COD MW free day 3/10

    Pretty sure it is only the battle royale gamemode that is free as they decided to bring it out as its own new standalone game for some reason. Not for COD MW as far as im aware but the older CODs did have moding capability.
  4. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    Sounds great. Looking forward to playing squad with some familiar faces. If we are to use PR rules then we may have to gently role them in for players who arent in the VG community as they are used to little to no enforcement on other servers. Things like squad naming and who has the right to certain vehicles is sometimes a problem so it will br best for us to try and teach them instead of using kicks and bans right off the bat and maybe grow a larger player base for this type of gameplay we are looking for at VG. Im sure there will people in the squad community who will be down for a more VG approach on the game.

    in the top left when you press caps lock you can toggle certain icons on the map e.g FOB radius and number of supplies at each radio. If you go on custom browser there are servers with maps for this kind of thing (jenson’s range) where you can pick your faction from 2 that are currently in play and take any kit you would like and practice with it. There is a firing range for both vehicles, normal small arms and any emplacements you would like to try. You can even practice flying or go on a FIBUA(fighting in built up areas) or CQB course if you would like.

  7. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    I have been playing squad quite a lot recently, just come back to it after a long break and have been having quite a lot of fun on it. Yes it is quite disorganised to what you would usually think a game like this should be like. But not in every game, the new commander feature added allows a Sql to be voted for the role by other Sqls. This feature allows alot of coordination in games and can actually lead to a victory or a loss depending on the commander and his/her tactics. The commander does get access to off map supports and a UAV but really this isn't normally thier strongest characteristic. Rarely do i play on PR where the commander takes command of the whole team and coordinate each squad but this is what occurs in most games in squad, especially in popular servers like PA 1 and 2. If you are in a squad where the Sql lead isnt always talking to your Squad and the communication seems a bit limited more than likely your Sql is gonna be communicating in the Sql only chat with the commander. The servers on squad have quite a different rules set when it comes to vehicles and squads but it all depends on the server you join. On PA(project awesome) servers rules regarding vehicles is that it must have at least 2 crew if a crewman kit is required and for squads, they can only be locked under 4 if they are 1 man squads e.g. logistics. Squad naming is more of a decency than a rule and pretty much any squad can take a vehicle if no other squad has claimed it already, IFV/BRDM squad taking a tank. The main reason for there being 2 heli squads instead of one or a one man BRDM(which doesn't require a crewman kit) is the ability to communicate with commander and other Sqls. Joining the game and seeing things like those above may seem like it is discouraging team work but really it is just a way to increase communication. That BRDM on its own could be scouting for HABs (respawn locations) or vehicles so the team can act together to remove those assets from the battle field. But the rules depend on the server. Also just for ease any rule that may be unusual can be displayed in red text at the top pf every players screen automatically every 10 mins or so (I assume this can be set to different timings). I think a server with the current VG PR ruleset could be used but adapted more to the sqaud player base because we wouldn't want them to come on the server and do something that they would normally consider ok, get kicked or warned and not want to play. The aussie mod would be nice but i pretty sure at the moment that on the mod description in the workshop the author has written that he wouldn't like anyone to host the mod on their own server but for it to be only hosted on an official server created by the mod author. I saw this a few months ago so i am unsure if it is still true. I would be down to play on a VG server or if anyone wants to play with me i am usually on PA 1 or 2 and if u would like any help getting into the game i am sure i can put my couple of hundred hours to use Cheers, Hoops
  8. Operation Frosty Dagger

    Well done, probably the best arma 3 event i have every taken part in (although it was my first lol). It was really good fun and a good laugh. I think the mission idea was great and not too complex just following the trail of enemies from rv to rv. As for my suggestions for the next event, I think it would be good fun having a convoy mission through takistan with ambushes on the way to a compound of some sort and then a defence or maybe just picking up supplies to go to the next compound. Whatever you decide to do im sure it will be great. Thanks sausage.
  9. I know PR is going to DIE!! Whats next?

    Yeah i have. Decent game but after a while it seems like it lacks content as games can be quite repetitive (especially on coop mode). Graphics and game play is good but it is more on the hardcore side of things which is good. In some game modes it requires good teamwork and comms but mostly it isnt really required. Can see it as a good idea for small groups to play on but for large communities not so much, most game can only have a max of 8 players with others having only 4. Personally i think it is a good game but not one you can dump 100s of hours into, just not enough content.
  10. Server issues

    Sometimes this does happen on Al Basrah. Not sure if it is just this map or not but it is known as the ‘deaddead glitch’ and it is where all players load into the map and have the black screen that displays ‘DEAD’ as you said. There doesn’t seem to be any way to get around this glitch atm appart from someone logging onto TC and restarting the server. If you want any more info on this it is probably best to talk to Deathdealer or BinkleDinkle as they are the ones that told me most of the above.

    Bravo SL pls
  12. Canadian Kokan (CAS??) Heli

    Hey, re. title: Canadian Kokan (CAS??) Heli I am slightly confused if this heli is considered a CAS asset or not as over my time of playing PR i have been told by multiple players and VG members that it is/isn't a CAS heli. I have also searched the forums for any existing answers to this and found nothing. I have been told it is a grey area and not quite yet decided. But it would be nice to know if it is or isn't so i don't have to be moaned at for using it as a trans or CAS. Cheers, Hoops
  13. I got a Ban

    Hi Hausmann, Could you please fill out the template from the link below so we can look further into your ban. Doing this would be greatly appreciated as it makes our job just a little easier. Cheers, Hoops
  14. My time has come

    There is many populated servers pretty much all the time including these modded servers but mostly just base game. Recently there was an update adding the CAF(Canadian armed forces) to the game, but before this it was a mod downloadable off the steam workshop. I do think that this is quite a good idea but at the same time there are more bugs in these maps than in the base game. But squad has bought out updates to the game to fix these and polish up the mod to standard quality levels. I have a feeling that this could be the same thing that is going to happen to the helicopter mod which has been out for a while an is currently in v15 and after playing around with it for a bit last night I think with a few more tweaks it would be ready to be implemented into the main game just like the CAF. this is just all my opinion if you don’t agree please say because it would be nice to here some other people’s views on this interesting way of getting content into the game.

  15. Squad

    Squad is in a pretty good state rn with a good amount of servers up and frequent updates. Most games i join i get a squad that all has mics and the communication is great, there is always at least one medic in each squad but normally not two because the second medic only has iron sights. There is not much i can really say that is bad about the game apart from the fact that it is still in development and some people could say that there is not enough content but personally i think it is great.
