Title: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on November 10, 2014, 02:15:50 PM
So it's finally been openly launched and VGS is switching to it.
Ive been playing on the Infistar Aus#1 server, Should come check it out. It's actually really good. Cept the mutants are OP as fuck at the moment making anything almost impossible to really do apart from killing other people and base building.

Was a bit confusing to start with, Look doesnt spawn on the ground but rather in random world objects.
So you need to inspect everything, I found a ghilli suit and NVG's in a trash pile.

Just spoke with Havoc, VGS wont have a server until the firsts because the Epoch mods are jews and will only let you have the server mods now if you're willing to pay 2 grand.

1st of December is when his goes live.

lol scorpy.. so fkin weird how that happens.. It's never happened to me EVER! And I probably have a shittier comp than you... fked.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on November 26, 2014, 08:48:21 AM
Found out some info.. This is a common problem and there are a few things I can try..

Apparently the Network adaptor I have "Killer E2205 Gigabit LAN controller*" which ironicly is marketed as a gaming NIC designed to reduse LAG etc..

Of course ARMA3 has issues with this NIC and I need to find a different driver.

Another thing to try is turning of my firewall but I really dont want to do this. Ive forwarded all the relivent ports but maybe Ive missed some.

I see why people use consoles..  I miss the days of switching on the PS1 sticking a disc in the top and the game works..

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on November 26, 2014, 09:20:04 AM
Then abusing the living shit out of it because the lazer in the ps1 was shit and wouldnt read disc's half the time :P

Post by: CanHasCoW on December 02, 2014, 03:25:59 PM
Prolly had one of the best fire-fights I have had since PR.

Was on Altis at the millitary base just east of the airfield.
I was there with another guy I met and we were looting the base for stuff, 3 vehicles rocked up with 2 people in each we jumped into one of the medivac structures and waited for them to come through when they came in i rushed out of the back flanking to the right taking out 3 the other guy  rushed the front door killing one and injuring the other before getting killed, I killed another two before getting killed myself.

Seriously you guys should check this out.
It's like wasteland but your kits save and you can build shit.

Got a weapon & side arm and some greens. Ill hop on later tonight and see whats going on.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on December 09, 2014, 09:46:32 AM
There isnt Zeds they added mutants, Ones this creepy mother fucker that wears a black cloak thing that kills you via psychic shit.

The other is a cunt with no legs that blows himself up when he gets close to you.

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch

Post by: SCORP on December 26, 2014, 07:25:48 AM
Another Epoch 1gig update today.

Anyway enjoying it so far. Drones are a bit annoying when your fresh spawned.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 07, 2015, 02:37:53 PM
Got my base coming along quite nice now.. You can even paint the walls with tins of paint you find when looting.

It would be good to see some of you guys on this. Its pretty stable and have not found any glitches.. They also have a in game currency system instead of carrying around gold bar's etc. There is also ATM's and phone boxes about where you can deposit funds to save it as if you get killed you can loose the money on your person. Especially if its PVP and some bastard steals your shit for your dead corpse..
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on January 07, 2015, 02:54:59 PM
I'll be on tonight.

Where did you set up base?
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 07, 2015, 03:48:15 PM
South Eastern corner..

If you spawn at the Eastern Trader I have a quadbike stashed in the bamboo near the house.. Its got a backpack and basic weapon..

Should be a Orca at base and ive got a few trucks stashed nearby..

That's my issue, I had a chopper stashed in reeds. Impossible to see yet some cunt nicked it.

I swear someones got maptools or something.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 08, 2015, 01:30:28 PM
Mine was in the open but your not meant to nick shit like that from peoples established bases. Untill they work out a true locking system for the vehicles..

Dont know why they can apply the code from the lock boxes or the locked doors you build to a vehicle when you purchase it. I bought mine from the trader so yeah.. anyway got heaps of Kronos to get another.

You going to be on tonight at all mate?
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on January 08, 2015, 02:33:47 PM

Hahahha well fuck right off from our base.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on January 15, 2015, 08:20:22 AM
Granted I did get a fully decked out EBR.

Was kinda funny really. I found their vehicle and just set up a static firing position with and m249 and just fucked them up.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 15, 2015, 05:18:30 PM
I put a Tipi inside the base. Only using the lock box for building materials.

Really need to get metal so we can build a cinder garage door. Then i could make a hanger for the big chopper.

If you want to do a container run around the map and grab all the metal / mortor and cinder you can find.

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on January 16, 2015, 09:25:17 AM
I'll see what I can do.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 17, 2015, 03:11:46 PM
If your using the Little Bird make sure when you land it have it facing due North 0 degrees. Apparenty on server startup choppers spawn in facing North then spin to the direction they were left. So if there is anything nearby it can get damaged when it spins.

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: CanHasCoW on January 17, 2015, 05:12:25 PM
Nah been using that truck I snagged. Don't like flying incase I get killed and we lose it.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 19, 2015, 04:44:11 AM
Ah no worries. Ive got heaps of kronos in the bank anyway so feel free to use the choppers.

I should get some game time this arvo. Webt to get on Sunday morning but the server had not come up from a restart. Havok had put in a email to the provider to get it fixed.

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 24, 2015, 11:58:13 AM
Ive started work on the aircraft hanger and garage.

Also be warned if you purchase vehicles from some of the smaller traders.

I bought a Wildcat and it spawned inside the building next to me and exploded. I dont know how i didnt die. Majorly hurt but lucky i had a few first aid kits on me.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on January 27, 2015, 08:19:17 AM
Howd you Epoch noobs go?  Doubt you made it back to our bodys in time. The Ai must have spotted us when we climbed the Solar tower.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: FlatkinG on January 28, 2015, 04:01:09 AM
well we did get back to the bodies, have had heaps of trials and tribulations since then, like swapping vests too quick and it vanishing with all the gear, dropping guns and vanishing etc. had a boat that i tried to push off a rock and it exploded. walked around the island for about 10 hours only to face i was in the middle of nowhere with no water and couldnt walk, then got shot but AI that spawned on top of me at a container. i got back to the body crawling through AI but the guns disappeared so had to run from sappers for ages and hit dogs with axe, i ran out of water again so limped for hours till the game debug glitched when i finally drank, i was permenantly fatigued at which point canhas comes on to save the day but didnt bring me any water then shot at a passing bike failing miserably, leaving me to flee the scene at 1kmph just to get shot by the guy by his .50. i was able to get back to my gear no help from canhas who immediately quit and loaded dota instead of offering any help. but i was able to make a lot of progress when nasty came on and we found a boat while exploring base building zones, just as we pulled into the shops with it there was a damaged speed boat in the harbor, the other players pushed it to shore with their strider and fixed it and sold it. i then sold my shit boat and bought the speed boat. i took it around the map to find out the main altis cave hasnt been built in. so i need scorps help to build there before any1 does. theres a couple of bases in that area too that are low level. and theres a dlc chopper in a field out there(116 068) that i cant fly coz i have no dlc.

anyways working on getting a jammer down and a locked door to the cave which is just north of the chopper about 500m in the rocks.

Took the rescue boat for a spin. Raided a small truck on the East peninsula got some small metal a wetsuit & re breather.

Found a autopilot for the boat too. ;)

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on February 15, 2015, 08:00:42 AM
Got glitch killed buy the door on the stairs to our tower.. Be careful closing it..

I had to buy a vehicle from the central trader and drive back so I could lock the door.

In the process of tying to get the new vehicle in I knocked over one of the concrete barrier walls.. wow they go down easy.. So built some more stud frames to block that off.. The concrete wall should pop back up after server restart.. I think we'll need to put stud walls completely around the perimeter so stop people just driving into the concrete to knock it over.. Anyway made a little garage to house the second vehicle.. Ill be on later this evening.

Post by: FlatkinG on February 17, 2015, 06:24:29 AM
well we had an orca, the suv and a hatch, we got raided all day and didnt lose anything, but gained the vehicles people were raiding us with, so we made a few thousand bucks. then the orca spontainiously exploded outside base. then while i was trying to patch all the holes in the fence i went in the car to get energy, a guy glitched through the wall and blew my car up and the one next to me that was full of stuff.. the suv had good shit too.. then he took my stuff and glitched back out the wall like a noob instead of just walking over the ramp. my screen glitched into spectate mode and i was watching where he went for 10 mins after i was dead, until my revive timer ran out, he ran to the trader and got in a chinook(the one that keeps low flying our base to see if we are out). he flew north east but i respawned before i could see where he went. on the respawn island i could then see him continue NE but passed over the penis base on the water and stayed at full speed still going NE.. i talked to some of the other guys who want an alliance, and im convinced now that the military DOME base is his ( optimus prime ) apparently all the players with movie names are wankers and are at war with the alliance. which is made up of Nuck, Nooblet, Bugs Bunny, Matt, Luke. which is all the people who attack us lol... i told em to stop attacking us if they dont want to be killed, and nuck said he will talk to them so he can get us as an ally. i just told him im at war with optimus for being a faggot and also mouse, but mouse hasnt been on since reset. also the Drink clan all got banned for some reason.. Eightseveneight that guy who wanted to be friends before has change his name to Chode(i cant remember) or something like that, and his mate is still ryan. they live to the south of us at that dead end road. he wont raid us, he wants us to come live at his house at stavros in a big construction yard that is constantly under attack, he needs man power coz its only them 2.

oh.. and we dont seem to have a pbx anymore, but we found a police boat that nasty had a nasty with, and now lives on the sea floor among the coral around the top of the point north of us... so i guess our navy dreams are over lol. i was also told by nuck that i can get a starter kit from stench... has cinders and heaps of metal etc. much like havocs server. this is probably how all them cunts have so much stuff so early, they have groups of 12 ppl etc almost all the groups have over 5
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: FlatkinG on February 17, 2015, 06:32:33 AM
ill just add on that, im pretty sure optium prime is mouse.. his ping is the same. which means he lives at the dick docks, probably also the top dome. both have chinooks
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on February 18, 2015, 06:52:44 AM
Found a base at the top of the map. 158,220 which has a wall down so i could get in. Managed to steal a heap of stuff including a Jammer and cinder wall.

If you have explosives you could blow up his jammer and steal all the 1/2 cinder walls that are scattered about.

Youll need a vehicle to move it all.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on February 18, 2015, 07:29:55 AM
Ive found a vehicle which has a shitload of stuff including 7 mortar 2 cinder 10 metal scaps walls mines slams guns shit loads as i said.

I took a wet suit and as much metal and stuff as i can carry and have logged out next to it. Ive hidden it in the bamboo at co-ords 163,199 kp 9/6 and will jump on this arvo. We need to establish a base to use all this stuff.
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: FlatkinG on February 19, 2015, 01:05:27 PM
ran out of energy, any cars around?

got some things in im working on in the lab, there may be a great shift later on. we will need to be prepared for the journy at the right time. the idea is to do a lot in a very short amount of time, so will need prepared resources pre trip, and careful route planning so we don't lose them on the way through several hot zones. ill update later
Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch

Cool..

Title: Re: Arma 3 Epoch
Post by: SCORP on February 21, 2015, 10:11:36 PM
OK So,

I did some running.. Im over the Eastern side of the map and have scoped out the new location. Its all good to build there noone within at least 3km radius or more. 

There are a few bases around the mid eastern side just sort of south of the  Eastern Trader SafeZone.

If we time it right we should be fine. Ive got a fair bit of building materials on me including a foundation. Ive also found and hidden a Kamas Repair Truck and a Hunter.. I think I may have stolen the Hunter off someone doing a bandit base mission. Either Ither The Kamas is hidden in the Bamboo right next to the Shipping Bowie at 212,067 and the Hunter is at 188,074 in some dense tree cover.

I also know of a quad bike I passed on my way there but it had busted wheels and I didnt have anything to fix it at the time. its somewhere close to 146,157 right near the water edge crashed into a small shrub and into a small rock wall. Both front tyres are broken.

Anyway Ill be on tomorrow and see if we can co-ordinate a move.

Post by: FlatkinG on February 22, 2015, 11:43:47 PM
well i moved everything we had in a truck, 2 missions spawn right in front of me so i had to make a huge detour, then after i passed it another 1 spawned right infront of me again.. a truck pulled up beside me out of nowhere and 1 shot my engine with a mx... total bs, then they shot me and stole all our building supplies, and all good loot we had. so i think thats the end for me... i really cant be fucked with it anymore. the shooter was kookz

Post by: SCORP on February 23, 2015, 06:21:29 PM
Flat just to make you feel better. Im pretty sure me and Vinny blew up Optimus's Chinook.

Turns out there is a base inside the hangers at that SE airfield. One hanger is built in with tin walls infront of Cinder block. We were going to blow a hole in the wall be seen the cinder behind it. I was fixing the chook but after i used up about 4 small energy packs leaving 1 charge in each it was just fixed but where it was parked was 1/2 inside the hanger so the rotors hit the hanger and fucked it again. Not sure how hes getting it in / out but anyway is gone now.

Vinny got it on Fraps.

My truck is still there with the buildables and we added some more to it after doing a container mission.  Still have a Hinter also which i thought was gone but after 10mins looking i found it. We also picked up a Hemmitt for a disposable transport oh and Vinny has a go cart. Lol
