      SERVER SHUTDOWNS   17/11/17

      Due to lack of donations & interest, the following servers will be shut down over the coming days.  SPACE ENGINEERS / MINECRAFT / GARRY'S MOD / BLACKWAKE / SQUAD I'd also like to remind everyone that the Arma Servers, Website & TeamSpeak all cost money to host. If we cannot afford to keep them up, then they will eventually be shut down.

    Mod changelog 11/09/17

    The week of mod testing is over. We have come to a decision on which mods will be added and which mods will be removed from the collection on monday 11/09/17. Note that some of the mods listed were old mods that were temporarily not available.

    MODS/MAPS BEING ADDED

    New mods total size: 3885.8 MB

    MODS/MAPS BEING REMOVED

    • 3CB BAF Units
    • NIArms Minigun
    • NIArms M1903 Sprinfield Rifles

    Removed mods total size: 149.8 MB

    New modset total size: 37239.7 MB

     

    MAPS ON TRIAL

    These maps will be added for a limited time to see what the community thinks. We think these may have some troubles, but are still great additions.

    Trial mods total size: 1998.3 MB

     

    All these changes will take effect during monday, exact time to be determined. This post is subject to change up to that point.

    I love how someone actually thought of adding a scope to a banana, making a mod of it, and we're going to use it!

    Why are the Brits going to be removed tho? I did not follow the thread.

    If only the "units" are being removed, it's just the Zeus placeable BAF units, not actually the weaponry and equipment we can use.

    The Brits getting removed is like getting a kidney removed. It still works but it hurts having somehting like that missing

    People like you are the reason there are scopes on bananas!

    Nuuuuuuuuuuu mah Springfields! I enjoy those! Most Zeus' let me take it as long as it's irons only. Oh well. The Minigun was long past overdue for removal which is good and since we've added BAF I think I've only fought them twice as OPFOR. Glad we're keeping the rest of it though. Don't know what I'd do without my SA80 series and my land rovers.

    Are the compats for mods like NIArms and RHS, BAF and RHS, ACE and RHS, etc. going to be added in as well, or is that going to be up to us to put in those compats manually?

    Apart from that, I'm gonna have a lot of fun with the PLA forces and KA's weapons.

    He fought against and won a DMCA take down, removed the illegal stuff, and somehow that means we can't use it. Probably something to do with updating the server to remove the mod which would only take 10 min maybe, but that's a pretty meh excuse for us not being able to use a bunch of KICKASS weapons. pun intended

    There is no reason to not add the two ka mods because the copyright dispute was already won by the mob author.

    You should also think about adding the Firewill f-22 because it works better and it hase the same weapon loadout system as both the f-15 and f-16 we already have on the server.

    Since we switched back to the Steam Workshop I noticed that NIArms weapons have increased their numer by a lot: can we have a more selection on weapon based mods? Probably we have 30 or more variants of the same M4 rifle and, in my opinion, it's a bit too much.

    We can try and find much smaller mods for the unique weapons that NIArms adds like the AUG: somewhere there is a mod that only adds AUG rifle and not duplicates of other stuff

    He hasn't removed all the illegal stuff, nor has he won the dispute. From the workshop page I quote

    Quote

    After the Counter-Complaint , "KA Weapons Pack NEW RC" has been reinstated.

    This doesn't mean he has won, this only means that he has claimed he is innocent. And by law he can now upload the stuff again after removing the old upload. The latest I heard is that he still has a DMCA claim standing, with even BI getting involved in it. As for why we are not adding it, it is suspected to be taken down again in a couple of days. So we maybe have it available for 1-2 days before it is unavailable again. So it is just a waste of time to put it in at all. And then again, why would you want a mod that will get taken down every month because the "creator" keeps the copyrighted stuff?

    No, we have enough jets now. We would have had the AWS F-14 when we switched to the workshop, but we decided against because we also were taking the F-16. Both of which are air superiority fighters. Any suggestions you have for mods need to go in the suggestion thread, we'll have a look at it when we decide to change the mods again next time.

    NIArms has always had the same amount of weapons as there are now, only change is the recently released P226. If we didn't take NIArsenal because of duplicate weapons, why shouldn't we remove RHS for the 20 different variations of M4's, M16's and HK416's. We now don't have to have the whole modpack anymore, the steam workshop only has the seperate versions. So we can remove only parts of it, as we are doing with the minigun and springfields.

    If we can, we can substitute the KA weps with the SMA weapons, a lot of the same guns but high quality, and from what I can see no legal troubles.

    is this just a joke? or are you being serious?

    We already had the hoverboard, it is just being readded. The tactical banana was suggested and we decided to add it because of the small size of the mod and the memes. Did you not expect us to add this?
