  1. Hello, everyone! We are excited announce that our Rising Storm 2: Vietnam server is officially being added as a full and permanent fixture in our service line-up. We have been blown away by the rapid growth of the server over the past month, with the server filling all its slots by the early afternoon every day without fail. Owing to its full service status, RS2 will now be fully integrated into our support and staffing systems to ensure any issues are swiftly dealt with. You can now request assistance from our staff by making a ticket on discord and the forums, or by asking our friendly TeamSpeak support staff. I would like to thank @Josh_ua for spearheading this initiative, as well as @AidanC, @Tyler..... and @Purgey for their ongoing support seeding and moderating the server. Tyler and Purgey will continue in their moderation capacities moving forward. Find us in-game by searching "StrayaGaming" or by directly connecting to
  2. Welcome, Engineers of StrayaGaming! We have some exciting changes to our Space Engineers server in the pipeline which we cannot wait to share with you. Hi all, Since the full-service launch of our Space Engineers servers late last year, we have been blown away by the creativity, passion and commitment the community has poured into the various game-modes we have offered - it has been truly awe-inspiring. Our journey through the Space Engineers ecosystem has not been without its challenges; persistent simulation issues, server crashes and grid losses have tested our resolve and are likely to remain as ongoing challenges until such time as the game developers can implement some definitive patches and updates. We also acknowledge that in recent months, our playerbase has condensed as a result of these issues in conjunction with shifting player dynamics, and our current server's inaccessibility to new players. Moving forward, we will be modifying our service offering to a minimalistic, modded server to bolster player accessibility without losing the advantages acquired through some of our core mods. The drill/fill, build/repair, radar, hangar market and factional safe zone mods will be retained, allowing us to drastically reduce our mod footprint from 4GB to less than 200MB while also improving server simulation speed. The server will officially switch over on Monday 20/07, with the server to be down from Monday morning until Monday evening. We strongly encourage all engineers to join us over the next week in some final epic battles with the incredible grids you have created. Your feedback greatly assists in defining the direction of our server, and we strongly encourage you to reach out to a staff member if you have any suggestions or concerns.

  6. Hey All, As you are most likely aware, StrayaGaming opened an Exile Server in December of 2018 This server was a project run and managed entirely by @webbie At its launch, the server gained a small, but regular playerbase. However over the past month there has been a visible decline in the playerbase, with an average of 1-2 players. As such, we have made the decision to shutdown the Exile Server, effective as of 6PM AEDT 5/4/19. We would like to thank Webbie for the time and dedication he put into this project, and the community members who supported this project.
  7. As you are likely aware, on the 25/5/19 we implemented a number of changes to the reporting of rule breaches for Altis Life, as can be seen here. As of today we will be updating these to be as follows: You may now initiate a helpdesk report for situations where you are directly involved and may not been seen as a third party. You may still bring in other who are not directly involved to provide evidence or testimony. Being directly involved means that you fit into one of the following categories: Be directly impacted by the incident and did not solely observe an incident. Be reporting an incident which impacts all members, such as illegitimately impacting the server economy through duping/exploiting, hacking/scripting etc. We will also be implementing a time limitation to the use of evidence in a helpdesk report. Any evidence for a report must be submitted within 3 days of the issue occurring for it to be considered valid and current. Any evidence submitted after this time will not be considered without extenuating circumstances

  15. StrayaGaming Exile As many of you are already aware, over the past few weeks we have been running a private beta for an Exile server, being developed by @webbie. Strayagaming is proud to announce that as of the 22/12/18 we will be launching the Arma 3 Exile Server in its first stable build to the public. We hope to provide an enjoyable and unique Exile experience that you cannot find anywhere else in the Oceanic Arma community. The Exile server will be a PvPvE experience, and will be running on the Malden map with a total of 40 available slots. The server details: Server Name: Strayagaming | ExileZ PvPvE Server Connection URL: ex.straya.life:2302 Server Join Link: exile.joinstraya.com Available Slots: 40 Server Restarts: Every 6 hours at 12:00 and 6:00 (AEDT) Staff Details: On launch we will be having 3 members of staff for the Exile server. @webbie will be appointed as the server developer and administrator. The server will also be moderated by @Jereleet and @pkisbest Server Rules: The server rules can be found here. They can also be accessed by clicking the link in the Exile sub-forum or navigating to them via the support menu on the menu bar.
  16. StrayaGaming Altis Life - Poll #1 Hi all, As per our post here, fortnightly polls are planned to be released to provide Altis Life players an opportunity to have a say in what changes are being made to the server. This is the first installment in what we hope will be one of many. All responses to the poll are anonymous, so please feel free to vote honestly. Many of the popular suggestions already expressed by players in Altis Life Suggestions are in the process of being implemented. Watch the Altis Life Economy Wipe Changelog for updates. If you have any suggestions or ideas that you would like to see added, let us know by posting a topic outlining your idea here. 1. Kavala City Limits As per the new Altis Life narrative, Kavala (Sydney) has fallen into disarray as rebel forces seized strategic locations in the city, forcing the cops and civilians to evacuate. To continue with the narrative, city limits could be removed to allow rebel groups to roam the city they overtook. 2. Property Ownership Limits When the server was wiped, the amount of properties players could own was decreased to 3. Many players have expressed an interest in having this raised to a limit of 4 properties. 3. Repair/Refuel Station at the Airport A repair/refuel station would be added to the Airport, allowing for easy refueling and repairing of planes and jets. 4. M-900 & Armed Orca Helicopters These two helicopters could be added to the Civilian and Rebel stores to provide a greater choice of purchasable aircraft. 5. Airdrop Missions Since the wipe the contents of the airdrop have remained largely unchanged. The contents of the airdrop could be modified to include a greater variety of items and a chance at higher tier weapons/gear. 6. Rebel Capture Zones For a long time rebels have requested that the gang hideout capture points should be redesigned, or revamped entirely. As this is a large feature, a longer period of time may be needed for us to implement it. 7. Brisbane Market Fire Since the wipe, the main role-play area has been changed to Brisbane. Should the fireplace be removed from the communal area?
  17. Hey all, With the upcoming Altis Life Economy Wipe, which you can read about here. We will also be releasing a content and QOL update to the Altis Life Server. This update will (broadly) include: major changes to the map and its features, a restructure to the economy, some content changes for all factions, and some new content for some factions. Altis Life Narrative The first thing we worked on for the update was the AL Narrative, a brief address from the Police Minister detailing recent events from the perspective of the police force. We encourage all players to read the narrative as it will help you understand why we have done some of the changes below. Map Design The map re-design was based off of the fact that we wanted to move the action out of Kavala (Sydney) and Agglechori for at least a brief period of time, and to spice things up a bit. Players will no longer get the choice to spawn at the Rebel overrun town of Sydney, instead they will be able to spawn at Pygros (Brisbane) or Athira (Melbourne). The aim here is to get players spawning at both towns and travelling between them, encouraging civilian roleplay that isn't stuck in a 100m radius of the town centre. The Federal Reserve and Banks have been moved to new locations, they are relatively bare and it will take some time for us to build them up based on whatever META develops. So if you have a big problem with a specific aspect of one of them let us know, we are keen on changing them up a bit. Economy Balance Another huge part of this wipe and update is the Economy Balancing. For a long time the economy on the Altis Life server has been way out of place, to such an extent that we couldn't really bring it back with the tools and options we had without upsetting a large group. With the wipe we have the opportunity to balance it out, we have changed the value on almost every item and moved the resource locations to better places. As an example, we have moved some of the higher end drug runs to the KOS zone and increased the reward relative to other lower tier drug runs. We are doing this to increase activity for Rebels in the KOS zone an attempt to bring back life to previously neglected content. There has also been changes to the starting balance and items, you will now start with a balance of $50,000. We have also adjusted the money cap down to a maximum of $50,000,000. This has been taken into account with the down scaling of the item values to more appropriately fit this change. Map Changes Added KOS Store Added Type 115 Added Cyrus (Black and Tan) Moved Drug dealer from Panochori to Edessa Bay Moved Brisbane city limits Moved Brisbane PD from North Brisbane to Central Moved Brisbane truck store closer to city limits Moved Bunnings from Topolia to Anthrakia Moved Cartel 1 from North Syrta to Pyrsos Moved Cartel 2 from Loannina to AAC Airfield Moved Copper mine from Sydney Mine to Quarry Moved Copper proc from Alkiampos to Rodopoli Moved Copper/Iron trader from Sydney Stadium to Ifestiona Moved Cotton proc from Charkia to Gravia Moved Drug dealer from Aktinarki to Limni Moved Federal Reserve from Telos to Agios Georgios Moved Gang Base 1 from Agios Konstantinos to Sfaka Moved Gang Base 2 from Nychi to Molos Moved Gang Base 3 from Salt Flats to Frini Moved Gem proc from Melbourne to Agia Triada. Moved Gold Bars Buyer from Cape Makrinos to Bomos Moved Heroin Processing from Koroni to Thronos (Castle) Moved Iron mine from Agios Petros to Charkia Mine Moved KOS from South Altis to North West Altis Moved logging from Abdera to Frini Moved Prison from Edessa Bay to Chalkeia Bay Moved Sand proc from Gori Factory to Military Hill Lakka Moved Shady to Agio Stemma Moved Sydney Air Garage to Brisbane Moved Sydney Bay Fishing Zone to Tonos Bay Moved Sydney medic air HQ to Melbourne Hospital Moved Sydney medic boat HQ to Brisbane Port Moved Weed field from Agios Dionysios to Ekali Moved Weed proc from Therisa to Feres Moved Westspac bank from Lakka to Neochori Moved Sydney city limits Moved Melbourne Hospital Removed 1 Drug Dealer Removed 1 Shady Doctor Removed Brisbane Bank Removed Cement processing from Rodopoli Removed Cement Trader from Charkia Removed Chop shop from Panochori Removed fishing zone near Brisbane Removed fishing zone near Sydney Removed Gang Hideout from Sydney Removed GoKart Shop Removed Molos Chop Shop Removed Rock quarry from Quarry Removed Sydney Oil Rig Removed Striders, SPMGs, Navids

    Hey all, Due to a major issue discovered in our final round of testing we will be delaying the wipe by a day. The issue requires us to redo a huge chunk of the work already done for the wipe so the extra day is quite necessary to ensure everything is tested again. As inconvenient as this may be, we hope you understand and respect why we have made this decision. The purge on the 6th will still go ahead. There will also be a final purge on the 7th prior to the release.

    Hey All, As many of you are already aware, we have been planning an economy wipe and server rebalance for quite a while now. We are very near to completion and as such can also confirm the date in which this will be taking place. The Wipe is set to be taking place on the 6/10/18 7/10/18 at the 3PM Restart. Along with the wipe, you will be able to see a complete restructure of the economy and map, which is also hiding the groundwork for a number of improvements and features that we have set to come out in the following months. As Red mentioned in his previous post, players with bans of less than 2 months can appeal for clemency through a ban appeal in the support section. These appeals will only be accepted if the banned player can show that they understand what they have done, and are able to explain what they will do differently if faced with the same situation in the future. Lastly, we are working on a formal way for the community to vote on the content and changes they want to see on the server. Currently there isn’t too much information available as it is still in talks between management and the project leaders, however, I’ll keep you guys updated as things progress. FAQ: What does the wipe entail? We will be completely resetting the servers economy; property, vehicles, money, gear is going to be removed and changed to a standard value. We will not be making any changes to the ranks of the Police or EMS. What of all my current money and items? Over the following two weeks, AL staff will be organizing and running events to give you an outlet to spend all your hard earned money in a “productive manner’. Will I keep my gang bases? No. Gang bases are going to be reset.

    As mentioned earlier in the year by @Red in his community update post, we are introducing a narrative to Altis Life with the coming economy wipe. We have come to the decision to use the narrative written by @James32. The narrative will be the backbone of the Altis Life server, and has been a major factor in the rework of the AL Map. This narrative is not strict and players may choose not to use it when they play. This will also allow us to make changes to the meta and server as we move forward into the future. The narrative is as follows: Emergency Broadcast from the Altis Minister of Police Reads: Over the last 3 months Rebel activity in and around Sydney has been gradually increasing, However in the past few days the city has come under a new wave of rebellious activity culminating in the invasion of the city and acts of full scale terrorism. The Altis government has been forced into exile, the prime minister fled Sydney escorted by a full contingent of APD officers. A new emergency command and control headquarters of the APD has been established in Brisbane to allow the re-establishment of civil control until such time as they are prepare to attempt to retake Sydney and surrounding areas. All civilians have been evacuated from Sydney to protect their lives.However Sydney, the financial and cultural hub of Altis has been infested by rebels and has descended into anarchy. The Altis central Bank’s data centers and house registries were destroyed in an act of terrorism against the state, leading to the complete irrecoverable loss of all financial data from all citizens of Altis. However our economy will recover if we band together and make Altis a better place. Rest assured I promise you that the APD will not rest until these rebel scum are brought to justice for their crimes and made to pay for all of the lives lost in their barbaric takeover of sydney. ….END BROADCAST

    Hey All, As you will all know, the judicial system and the laws have seen very little light and work over the past months. In these past few months, the system has become very unused and almost to the point its non-existent. There have been a few times that it has been attempted to be revived and reworked, but unfortunately it again took a backseat to some of the other work going on. We have recently finished work on part of the project that will be going into the Judicial and legal system, this being the Altis Life Laws. The laws will be a part of the judicial system and will be an outline of the behavior that may be deemed as illegal by the courts, note that this is independent to the police ticketing system. You will be able to read them here https://docs.google.com/document/d/e/2PACX-1vTQg-1LCgJE-T4T5qDm4husOjJgmLs7lcmSx4s5-mCCTDR3nHkB355M2yUyYxQ_jREtpM9SGzme9h_U/pub
  22. @Matsozetex Different fixes have worked for different people. Ask around and you'll probably get a few different answers. I can suggest restarting your router or re-installing BattlEye. Otherwise you'll just have to see what others say.
  23. Hey all, Effective as of the 3PM AEST restart on the 14/7/18 we will be making some changes to the AL rules. The changes to the rules are as follows: 6.4 - The killing of an incapacitated person will be seen as RDM (Knocked out or restrained) 2.8 - Rebels may not enter city limits with Rebel gear or vehicles without a valid RP reason. This is inclusive of armoured apparel (IE vests and helmets), concealing clothing (Balaclavas) and weapons. 3.4 If you are revived by a medic, you may not rejoin in any combat that caused your death. 3.4.1 You cannot be engaged by the party that caused your death in the same combat situation after being revived

    In the last community meeting a point was brought up regarding the way the Sydney Safezone currently works. It was discussed to bring the Sydney Safezone back to how it used to be, For those who may not be fully aware, it only used to cover the Sydney market, Car Garage, Air Garage, Sydney PD, Sydney Hospital and the Casino. In this post, I would like to see some reasons for and against any changes you would like to see to this system. If you would like it changed to how it was please give reasons for and/or against this, the same with leaving it the same or expanding it. I am also open to completely new idea's as to how we can manage the SZ. As it stands, people believe the way it is setup currently to be related directly to a few issues that are currently going around the Sydney Area.
