      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?

      It's meant to be based on this https://ru.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Афганит_(активная_защита)

      These are errors with the mods themselves, so fixing them is out of our control unfortunately.
    4. 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...
    7. Fitz

      BI changed that, can't fix
    8. Fitz

      Yep, looks like the base protection stuff was deleting it. Fix will be in next update.
    9. More important fixes and small changes Added Tim's HQs back into the rotation. Changed Tanoa HQ objects to Altis variants on some HQs.
    10. This update brings some important bug fixes. Also, the APS no longer needs a Commander to be in the vehicle. View full devblog

    12. Fitz

      Yep we're planning on putting some of these in soon
    13. Fitz

      This should all be fixed now.
    14. Server has been updated to 1.94 (Arma changelog) and changes have been made to support the new Contact DLC. This includes adding the new Livonia map to the rotation on our second Tanoa/Malden server. Map voting has been enabled on our second server. Players can use #vote missions to vote for bringing up the mission selection screen. 70% of players must vote for it before it will work. Included in this update is Quik's new Active Protection System for armoured vehicles. This applies to both enemy AI and player vehicles. So long as there is a commander in the vehicle (player or AI), the system protects the vehicle from incoming missiles. There are 5 tiers of vehicle protection, Strider and Nyx having the the lowest level, MBTs having the highest. Each tier has different ammo count, reload time, and chance of failure. The blind spot on normal vehicles is the rear of the vehicle, for tanks, it is the rear of the main turret. Fixes and addition of new vehicles will come in over the next week.
