Who we are
We are a small group of players who meet weekly to play mostly co-op based missions. We have no "fixed" roles or rank of any sort, so if you want to be the squad lead for a mission you can be, if you want to just be a guy with a rifle the next mission that's perfectly fine! We also don't really have a needed "experience" level, if you what control does what in arma3 and how to point your gun in the general direction of the bad guys then that's enough for us! For more specific stuff, "on the job" training can be provided. We also use 'semi-serious' coms as well when the player count requires it (its a mix of TS and in game VOIP channels) but its mostly just TS What type of missions do we play?
We play mostly co-op based infantry missions on various terrains. We also have combined ops missions as well which included various planes and helicopters. We also don't limit ourselves to one specific side, so we could be NATO forces one mission and rebel forces the next! We also accept join in progress and whilst we have a standing "dead is dead" rule, we do allow respawns if we want/need them. Were also not super strict rules wise, theres no "yes sir" rules, just follow what the squad leader asks dont be a total idiot and its all good. We also dont do "fixed" roles, so you could choose to be squad leader on mission, rifleman the next, to MG gunner after that. All roles are first come-first served though! When do we play?
We have 2 sessions, with each being different -
Saturday @ 4pm EST - This is our vietnam and ww2 session, we play both vietnam era and ww2 era missions only, no multicam or digi camo allowed!
Monday @ 8pm EST - This is our 'main' session, it uses hand picked addons that suit our play style, along with many "in house" made addons that tweak the hand picked addons to our liking Where do we play?
We play on the SimHQ dedicated server, filtering "SimHQ" in the game server browser should find us, failing that, our players on the SimHQ teamspeak server will help you. Details for our teamspeak server can be found here http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4314955/New_TeamSpeak_server_info
be connected to the SimHQ TeamSpeak 3 server and in the SimHQ Arma 3 hosted channel before joining
our online server. This is a mandatory requirement for participation. Anyone whos connected to the server during play sessions without being in the TS server WILL be kicked off.So what do i need to play?
We have 2 mod sets, one for saturdays which is vietnam and ww2 era, and one for mondays, which is more "modern day". All mods are on the steam workshop so if your a regular Arma3 player odds are that you'll have most of them already. The easiest way to download the required mods is by downloading the arma3 mod presets for the desiered session - Saturday Session Modshttps://www.dropbox.com/s/02i2yxcsq4jwhq1/Arma%203%20Mod%20Preset%20SHQ%20Saturday%20mods.html?dl=0Monday Session Modshttps://www.dropbox.com/s/qeg3zxy0l5dbm2l/Arma%203%20Preset%20SHQ%20Monday%20Mods_Feb2020.html?dl=0you can see the next post for a step by step guide for using the prests if neededAdditional Suggested Reading
