Didn't seem to help, must be something on my end. I also don't have Apex/Tanoa if that's required then I guess that could be the issue as well.

I haven't seen the server in a bit Mojo ... direct or in the server list.

I wouldn't mind getting on a bit tonight before the 9pm DoI session.

Linebacker, it is up, people were connecting yesterday. Might be a dynamic dns issue.

Direct IP is: 71.17.3.180

JG26, if you could try to connect again sometime and then either PM me or post here when you did so I can see if there is anything obvious in the server logs to indicate the issue.

Cheers!

EDIT: Also JG26, what launcher are you using to start the game? A3Launcher, or the default Steam one?

Using your IP did the trick Mojo, hooked right up to the server and then died because I couldn't figure out how to open the chute, LOL!! Thanks for the help, I have a BIG learning curve ahead of me.

Glad the IP worked. I will look into what is wrong with my dns, or just stop using it.

Don't worry, cratering into the earth is your initiation to the server.

If you want it a little easier to start, spawn at the 'Terminal' you will be closer to the rest of us.

Let me know if you have any questions once you get going, hopefully someone will be online to help you out a bit.

Thanks for the help and the hosting!

Ok, I ran around a bit today and had a few questions if you don't mind. How do I know if things belong to someone (a human player) and not just spawns/objects in the game? I looked on my map and it had a green icon the said {gear crate} so I went over there and checked it out. It was full of stuff I needed and had no ones name attached to it that I could see so I pilfered it. I hope this wasn't someones gear, but it almost seemed like a newb starter crate. I also took a quad from the vendor area without paying anyone for it. I just jumped on it and drove off. Am I doing anything wrong or is this gameplay as intended? Another thing I was unsure of was leaving after my play session and saving my gear/goodies. Do I just disconnect in a safe zone, or do I have to put everything in a safe to have it there the next time I come on?

I have a lot more questions but I'll start with these so as not to drive you away too early on, LOL.

Good questions Vamp. smile

I kinda have an idea of the answers (I'm still a huge newb) but I'm pressed for time right now. I'm going to be on later tonight (Sunday) at around 8pm est.

When you buy a vehicle, you pick a code for it. In general, when you exit a vehicle, you should lock it. We have been lazy about doing this. The vehicles around the Terminal are mostly player owned, although we are ok with borrowing quads in general. A good plan whenever you get off a vehicle is to jot down your grid location on a piece of paper so you can find it later if you die.

The green icons are missions, so they are fair game.

Anything on a lockable vehicle or on your player are saved between sessions in the database.

You can disconnect anywhere after the countdown completes, as long as you aren't in combat (red flashing icon on the screen will show).

This is worth a read as well for other general info: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=496399029

Let me know of any other questions. I will try to get on their with you sometime soon. Snap is on quite often as well.

Hey Mojo, was wondering if somethings went wonky with the server? I had a 2.7 gig Arma update and now I can't direct connect to the server. I do see your server on the recent tab, but it fails to connect. Any idea what's shakin'?

Yup, looks like there was an Arma update. Will start the download for the server now. There is a new Exile Mod version as well but I will see if the existing one works first before upgrading it as there is a bit more work for that.

EDIT: Finished updating, try it now.

HI
Old Exile will work no problems. Supposedly some bug fixes and whatnot with the new Exile update, but no game-changers.

Thanks Jeff. Apparently Snap got an error when he connected so I went ahead and updated the server. Everyone will need to download the 1.0.2 client to connect now.

EDIT: I broke the server upgrading it. Will look at it tomorrow.

EDIT2: Server is working again.
