    Future changes to the FK Modset development

    By Melo, in Community News, , 0 comments, 3,676 views
    To make our main missions more exciting and fun for all of us the Staff Team and Zeus Trainers decided to make a change to our modset development process.
    The new mod procurement system will no longer operate on a bi-annual (6 months) basis but will work as a continuous process. Therefore, we no longer need to wait until May or November to acquire new assets. This will keep our modset up to date with commonly used mods, while unused mods will be removed to make the modset more compact.
    For those interested in the new development process, here are the five steps a mod takes before being added to our modset:

    Step 1:
    The new modset development is now a five-step process that begins in the FK Discord mod-suggestions thread, where you can suggest any mod you think will suit FK! You can also comment under any suggested mod and voice your opinion to the community. In addition, make sure to read the Mod Suggestion Rules & Guidelines.

    Step 2:
    The new mods will be presented to a selected group of testers, including Zeus Tag Holders, Trainers, Techs, and Mission Makers who are dedicated to ensuring the quality of the mods that are chosen based on their qualification and acquisition of the previously mentioned positions. They will also work with the Tech and CM team to plan the mods' implementation and introduction to the greater modset. This process ensures that the mod will fit our playstyle and is of good quality.

    Step 3:
    After the testing team approves or denies submitted mods, they will move on to the testing process or will be sent back with feedback regarding the result. Testing will include checking for any bugs or glitches of the mods with the main modset while also ensuring the mod still fits with the playstyle for FK ArmA missions.

    Step 4:
    After a mod leaves stage 3, it moves on to CM approval where the CMs do the final check before giving their approval. The CM's decision will be based on the modset's depiction of Explicit or Sensitive Content and not on personal bias or opinion.

    Step 5:
    After testing is completed, the Testing team will approve or deny mods in the pipeline for final approval by the CM team based on a set of criteria for the final adoption of any given mod. Following this, if a mod's adoption can be done without going over FK's Modset size requirements, the Techs can immediately update the modset and server. Otherwise, the Testing team and Techs will work in tandem to create a modified modset that does not compromise our playstyle while maintaining our modset's size. Modset changes, once testing and approval are complete, are intended to be adopted in the following cycle of main missions (starting each Thursday).

    Flow Chart of the process:
    For better understanding of the process here's a flowchart showing the new development process.


    Boat Tags have arrived at our port!

    By Yung_Cider, in Community News, , 0 comments, 1,774 views
    Greetings FK Members!
    Since it's introduction, our tag system has provided skilled players with the credentials to operate the pinnacle of technology
    in modern warfare. No matter if by air or land, tag holders were able to turn the tide of the battle by using their expert skills in aiding the ground troops to reach their mission goals.
    We are excited to announce the implementation of a new, long overdue extension to our tag system:
    Boat Tags.

    No matter if it’s a RHIB, Patrol Boat or a mighty Destroyer, naval combat is a key facet of Arma3 and FK Gaming intends to push and enhance the skill and abilities of those that wish to sail the rough seas.
    Starting today players will be able to enroll for boat training sessions and soon do their evals to get the brand new, FKGaming exclusive boat tag. Under the supervision of our very own expert in the field of naval warfare, @Don_prince, players will receive extensive training to fill the ranks of future boat tag holders.
    Our very own @Jerichron has created a special mission to commemorate the new modset! Can one and all to this first of many events! https://www.fkgaming.eu/events/event/1627-april-fools-naval-action-1st-main/
    For more information, and a little extra for our lovely community members, watch the video down below!

    FK 2023 Costs & Donations

    By LurkerOne, in Website news, , 0 comments, 2,069 views
    Hello all, I thought it was about time to sit down and update the costs for the FK servers/licenses currently, and let you know a bit about the work kMaN has been doing since taking over from @mrrbatty. Since taking over from him, kMaN has been working on reducing our current costs (our donation goal was downsized from €300 to €150/month a while back after changes in infrastructure). Working with the Tech team and have consolidated our resources to cut some costs. So, let's recap on our changes before I get into the current costings:
    FK 1 & Aux Box
    We used to have FK1 running on a separate server with the FK Aux box running virtual servers for all our other resources FK2/3/4/5, Teamspeak, Website, Foundry, etc. We have stopped the payment for that box and the old AUX server and instead switched to a more powerful server to run all our servers from one box and moved all the resources onto the new server, the cost of the new server was not that much more than we were paying for the Aux box on its own. This work was started and finished in the latter half of 2022, because the priority was reducing the cost of the website.
    FK Website
    The FK website has undergone a lot of changes to make it more stable, along with updating it to the latest software versions. Before he left, Mavy moved us to a new cloud-based solution which sped up page loading a good amount, however he left shortly after this migration and didn't see the increase in costs caused by this migration, which was well over €100 a month just for the website. Mrbatty was attempting to get it moved to cheaper hosting but could not complete this due to lack of time IRL, so upon handing the reigns over to @kMaN, he and @L00_Cyph3r have done some excellent work in moving the website to cheaper hosting, saving us a lot on the monthly costs. This project was the priority and was started in early 2022.
    Website Modules
    The TeamSpeak module on the website was unfortunately a victim of the recent updates, because the author hasn't updated the module in several years. This module allowed users to input their TeamSpeak UUID so that tags from the website could integrate over to Teamspeak. At this time, updating or adding the UUID to a user's profile will need to be done manually by a CM or Tech.
    The original TeamSpeak license was owned and hosted by Mavy. As the free licenses are no longer being offered by Teamspeak and transferring the license from Mavy was not an option, we had to get a new yearly license when creating the new TeamSpeak server.
    Anyway, after those updates, let's move on to the current costs.
    Updated Costs
    Monthly Cost
    Website License
    6 Monthly (€60)
    Website Module - Awards
    6 Monthly (€7)
    Website Module - Theme
    6 Monthly (€10)
    Website Module - Forms
    6 Monthly (€20)
    Website Module - Donations
    6 Monthly (€20)
    Website Module - Discord
    6 Monthly (€10)
    Website Domain Registration
    Yearly (€17)
    Hetzner Server
    Monthly (€115)
    Website (DNS)
    Monthly (€1.00)
    Yearly (€96)
    Email Hosting
        Monthly Total
    Thus the new donations total is €150
    To conclude…
    That was a lot to take in! I'm glad you stuck around to read all this boring stuff. As always, if you'd like to discuss any of this, reach out to kMaN on Discord.
    Everyone who donates to FK has the eternal gratitude of the FK Staff for continuing to host a community we are proud to be a part of. All donations are welcome, if you wish to donate, please visit our donation page, https://www.fkgaming.eu/donate/
    Special thanks to @L00_Cyph3r for handling the majority of the server, website migration and cutting FK costs by 50%.
    After failing several times, one time to PC failure, to organize and create this post, I'd like to thank @LurkerOne for finally taking his time to put this together. Something I should have done months......okay, okay.....a year ago.
