Hey fellows 

Haven't been around here in a long time, wiping off the cobwebs from my login..

 

Thought i'd share for those that havn't seen, or followed

But Arma3 Desolation Redux was released open a few days ago

Basically think back to 2013ish~ dayz

Crazymike is also working a new map that will be used with it

It's only just out (i think it was released yesterday) so there are a lot of placeholders and things to do still

Currently there are a few severs, main maps are chernarus and tanoa

highly recommend checking it out

It still has a little bit to go but looks good so far

I tried playing it and quickly realised that I don't have all the DLC required. So I pushed it back to when I get the urge to buy the DLCs

Okay.

 

We need this. This has the potential to bring back good times. I will donate for this cause in a heartbeat.

 

Few sidelines though;

 

Never on Chernarus, take Tanoa instead it's a million times better.

 

We need some mods to make it more fun.

The beginning already began and ended. The ending already ended and began again. The Middle Way is near if you’re beginning to see how all things are connected; it’s already here if you’re on the path and you understand that the journey’s the thing.

Does it have zombies, and if so, do they have decent sound? The one mod for Exile that adds zombies doesn't have directional sound, and it's infuriating to the point I don't even want to play with them. I'd rather just face AI. :)

JSRS Apex is the answer to your problems. I noticed the same, but after downloading the JSRS mod it was all gravy.

Not sure if Apex is the answer either. I have Apex and have experienced the same annoying issue Tommy is talking about. I do believe that the individual servers contribute to the problem. I played one last night that was enjoyable, however there was little content on the server and only 2 other players. There are a shit ton of great buildings to add to an environment with A3/Apex that a dull server is a travesty. I'll be searching Tanoa servers all day today...hmm my coffee just kicked in, just noticed Dice mentioned the JSRS sounds mod....D/Ling now.

We're seriously playing around with the idea to rent a dedicated Desolation Redux Server on Tanoa. After experiencing a similar setup with minor flaws we realized this might be the best thing since the DayZMod days.

 

There are some things involved like getting the right admin-tools and other stuff I really don't know anything about. Perhaps we can all combine forces and make this happen?

Baker has priced out servers, best deal on one that's not trash is $64 Tommy found inifStar antihack is $35 with free updates and as far as I can tell Battleye is free of charge.

Can confirm, JSRS cleared up the issue with the zombies. That's awesome, because it seems like Ryan's Zombies and Demons mod is the best one for zeds.

 

I'm cool with trying something on Tanoa, just as soon as I buy Apex (which I intend to do whenever it goes on sale next).

Hi guys,

 

So since we're sporting ideas on a A3 server I'm curious about a thing or two before offering any ideas on the gameplay. (And I have a few)

 

Now this might be something you guys have already tackled or are in the process of tackling, but I wanted to ask the following.

 

Are we going to be able to Admin the server in a meaningful way? In my opinion it's a very ungrateful, but a very important job but I'd feel a lot better knowing that we're investing in something that will stay for a while.

 

I have no idea who's available/willing, but I'm very curious to know how that aspect is coming together.

To be honest, I think that's going to be the major obstacle. I don't know if we have the manpower to efficiently admin a server, let alone the desire.
