    AO

    You can teleport to the FOB when there are under 20 players on. From there a heli can take you, or you can drive the vehicles that spawn there.

    I think most people like having a variety of helicopters to choose from. Is there any reason why they should be limited to NATO only? @user lincoln

    Sorry for the slight delay , all of those types of messages will be hidden after 5-10 seconds now.

    I&A Apex Edition 1.1.8c

    This update mainly adds a base air defence upgrade, some small fixes and tweaks, and a handful of new skins from @Bull. Some changes were also made to the random inventories in vehicles and crates, however this needs a lot more fiddling to get it right. The base Air Defence is now made up of three components: 1 Mk21 Centurion medium-range launcher at the North end of the runway. 1 AN/MPQ-105 Radar at the centre of the runway. Either 1 Praetorian 1C CIWS or 1 Mk49 Spartan at the South end of the runway. The long-range radar greatly increases the effectiveness of the base's defences (in my testing at least )

  6. Not at this stage. That would require extra coding to restrict non-trusted people from using those things. A Zeus can still spawn them for someone if they wish. Some people were driving the MLRS out to AOs with an ammo truck/crate and clearing the whole thing, regardless of ROE or whatever other rules prevent it. Any of the arty vehicles can be considered overpowered when close enough, laser or not.
  7. The only thing that was ever exclusively for Veterans was the MLRS truck. These were meant to be 'trusted' people, but it was still too powerful and easy to abuse. The destroyer was never 'in' either. These things are spawned by Zeus at their discretion. And what Turban said is correct, can't have things that give an advantage exclusively for Donators.

    The jet spawns need to be checked and likely adjusted. Some people have been complaining for a while that there's way too many spawning, but I haven't really experienced that myself yet (outside of defends). Weird. Usually there is red smoke before the jet even begins the bombing run. If not, it could be Zeus controlled, either way it shouldn't be bombing the same thing that many times. If friendlies use heavy AT launchers like the enemy, the effect is the same. They both have active protection as well now, so there shouldn't be that much of an advantage for the enemy tanks. The snipers are meant to be a challenge, they should be a priority target before landing a full heli near them... The only thing related to difficulty that has been changed in recent months, is the defends, which are now harder. Jets have been the same, and apparently bad for a while. Overall AI difficulty has been the same for 6+ months. I don't know how standard AOs and missions can be perceived as suddenly more difficult?

    These are errors with the mods themselves, so fixing them is out of our control unfortunately.
  11. The main focus of this update is responding to player feedback on a range of different concerns. Players noted the following issues: Difficulties getting in contact with staff Difficulty finding the right TeamSpeak channel to be in Difficulty finding the community-created guides, or unaware that they even existed Unaware of perks received for donating 'Shit' side mission rewards 'Shit' jets Enemy jets spawning too frequently Unaware of correct pad numbers Most of these have been addressed in this update, with the exception of the friendly and enemy jet spawns, which need further observation and testing. Contacting Staff A lot of players use the main group chat to report issues. However, staff are not always ingame or in the group chat and, if they are, messages are easily missed. To fix this, we have introduced a simple chat command !admin, that allows players to notify staff on Discord and ingame more effectively. Simply type !admin into any chat channel and the menu will appear. You can submit one issue every 5 minutes. Abuse will see you blacklisted from using it and possible disciplinary action. More information on how to contact staff can be found by typing !help in any chat channel. TeamSpeak, guides, donations To help players better find the right channels on TeamSpeak, some ingame mentions of the TS have become clickable links that automatically connect you to the correct channel. The following will automatically connect you to the Pilot's channel for whatever map you're on. Links and information about guides, donations and more can be found in a new screen that can be accessed via the [Home] menu, or using the chat command !help. Some of this info has also been included in the TS channel descriptions of some popular channels. Other methods of making TS easier to navigate for new players are also in the works. Side Rewards For a while now, we've heard a number of complaints about the quality of rewards given for successfully completing side missions. As a result, we've decided to try a different way of determining what reward to give. All side missions have now been assigned a difficulty rating from 1-3. This will determine what type of reward players will receive for completing the mission. More difficult missions, like Rescue POW and Secure Caches, have the highest rating and offer more powerful vehicles as a reward (mostly gunships/heavily armed aircraft). The second highest tier includes APCs and less-powerful armed helicopters. The lowest tier gives the least powerful and still pretty disappointing rewards. However, the missions in this tier are supposed to be quite a bit easier than the others. Instead of having one large pool of rewards for all missions, this divides the rewards into three smaller pools based on difficulty. Hopefully this makes completing side missions a more rewarding experience, while easing some of the frustrations you've expressed with the previous system. If not, we'll have to consider some of the more complex solutions that have been suggested.

    Made it so it needs to be activated now. However it looks like an armed one before activating...

    BI changed that, can't fix
  15. Fitz

    Yep, looks like the base protection stuff was deleting it. Fix will be in next update.
