    November Modset 2022

    By LurkerOne, in Game news, , 0 comments, 710 views
    November 2022 Modset Update
    After many weeks of hard work, it's here! The latest update to our main Arma 3 modset. This modset was unique in that it's the first time FK opened to the modtesting to everyone Regs+ and their vote weighed equally to staff members who voted. The modset was determined by the FK community. Therefore, if you have a complaint you should look to your left and right and ask your buddy, who either participated in the mod-testing or didn't. FK staff & techs would like to thank all who contributed for their hard work during the process.
    Now, onto the new FK November 2022 modset.
    On the faction side we have made some changes, BW Mod and Redd'n'Tanks have been removed and AMF has been added. It's not perfect, but is in active development and provides the community with a new faction.
    We have refreshed our map list, adding back in some favorites along with some new maps, notable of which is Fapovo Island. The great map modder Jerichron will be applying his magic to give us an improved version of the map.
    On the gear, uniforms and equipment side of things, we have replaced Military Gear Pack (MGP) with USP Gear & Uniforms AIO. USP AIO brings most of the same items, uniforms and equipment as MGP. We have also included the mod, ACE3 Arsenal Extended for USP AIO which allows for a new more compact way of choosing the options for uniforms, vests, etc. It allows for a smaller or better organized menu. kMaN has made a short video explaining this new feature afforded by the new mods.
    On the vehicles side, the community decided to stay with what is still some of the better mods that provide vehicles, ie - RHS series, 3CB, Firewill's aircraft, etc. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much regarding new mods for vehicles. AMF will be the sole mod to brings the community new vehicles.
    For Zeus', we have a new Breach mod which adds new items for players to try to breach doors
    To celebrate the new FK November 2022 modset, kMaN has ported three of his scripted missions, using @Malbryn's MalFramework to support the new modset. They can be played at any time or in-leu of a main mission Zeus ran mission on FK1 or 2. You don't need to subscribe to his missions as they are on our servers already, but you can see them on the Workshop:

    Operation Ice Fire I (USP)
    Operation Ice Fire II (USP)
    Operation Ice Fire III (USP)
     
    One of our goal's for the November 2022 modset was to try and bring something new, ie - weapons, equipment, helmets, vests, accessories, immersion, system, maps, etc. As a result, despite the number of mods increasing, the modset has only grown by a modest ~9 GBs which is still under the hard limit of 75 GB.
     
    Current (May 2022) Modset Size (GB):      65
    New Modset (November 2022) Size (GB):      72
    Removed Mods(May 2022) Size (GB):    12
    Current (May 2022) Mods Count:    112
    New (November 2022) Mods Count:   79

    Anyway, onto some useful information. The modset will be live on FK 1 from Thursday, the 8th of December.
    Mod Preset & Installation
    The simplest way to get the new FK November 2022 modset ready will be to import it into the Arma launcher.
    FK7 MTT Server
    FK7 has been setup with the new modset for testing, the modset above can be used on the server and from the go-live date the same modset will be used so you do not have to download two different modsets. The password on FK7 has been reverted from the MTT password to the same password format that is used for all of our Arma servers.
    Below you will find a full list of what's come in, and what was removed.

    Scripted Missions and You!

    By Fred, in Community News, , 0 comments, 6,212 views
    This post will serve as a guide on how to use scripted missions in FK Gaming
     
    What are Scripted Missions?
    A scripted mission is essentially any Arma 3 mission which employs the use of scripts to dynamically change the way the game is played. For the scripted missions in FK Gaming, this will often include (but not always!): 
    Respawning Dynamic AI spawning Mission Objectives Custom Scripts, e.g. Attack Dogs These missions can be found in the mission selector screen when you use the command: "#missions" on the server when loaded as admin (more on this later). These scripted missions are used when there has been no main mission Zeus picked on the day, and people select "Scripted Mission" in the staff-given strawpoll. 
     
    How Can I Setup a Scripted Mission on the Arma 3 Server?
    As mentioned above, to get the scripted mission on the server (to see a list of scripted missions, look here), you must first log in as admin. To log in as admin, type in chat: "#vote admin <YOURNAMEHERE>". For example, for me to log in, I would type: "#vote admin Fred", or if I wanted to vote Melo as admin: "#vote admin Melo".


    Next, you will need to pick a mission to play. To do this, type in chat (once logged in as admin): "#missions". This will bring up a mission select screen which has options for map selection, and mission selection. To find a specific mission, you must first select the map it is on. For example, if I wanted to play "CO48 Invasion of Utes", I would select the map "Utes", then select the mission when it comes on the right side of the page.

    Most missions in the FK scripted database will follow a naming convention that will give you preliminary information about the mission and will most likely only be COOP (CO) or Team vs Team (TVT) missions. The first letters of the mission name will tell you whether a mission is a COOP or PVE mission, i.e. -  CO, Co, co, [CO ] or a Team vs Team or PVP mission, i.e. - TvT, [TVT ], [TvT ] or a similar variation. The next two numbers will tell you how many players the mission is built for, ie - CO50, [CO50], CO-50, [CO-50], co50, TVT50, TVT-50, [TVT50], [TVT-50], TvT50, etc. Finally, the mission name will complete the naming convention. In the above mission name, "CO48 Invasion of Utes", you can read that the mission is COOP, supporting up to 48 players and the mission name is Invasion of Utes. In this example, the mission name tells you which map you would be using, but most mission names will not include the map name in the title.


     

    This will bring you to the lobby screen for the selected mission. Here you will need to gather some players, and slot up. Once everyone is slotted, the person logged in as admin will then press "OK" in the bottom right corner. This will bring everyone to the map screen. 



    On the map screen, look at the top left for the "briefing tab". This will hopefully have all the information required to complete the mission. When everyone is ready to play, press the "OK" button in the bottom right corner.
    Finally, this will bring you in game; where you have to complete whatever object has been set by the mission maker.
    As of right now, the FK scripted missions database has missions supporting the current FK modset on FK1 and/or FK2 as well as the SOG Prairie Fire DLC hosted on FK5.

    Calendar Missions
    If you look at the FK Gaming Calendar, you might see some special scripted missions, as well as specially scripted Zeus missions. These are created by players who wish to tailor a unique experience, typically with a non-standard modpack. The players who run the more specialty missions typically rotates the non-standard modpack on a quarterly basis. For example, in the past we have had: Warhammer 40k missions, WW2 missions, Vietnam, etc.
    If you wish to create a calendar mission, please read through the guides in this link

    May 2022 Modpack Update

    By LurkerOne, in Game news, , 0 comments, 3,464 views
    May 2022 Modpack Update
    After many weeks of hard work, it's here! The latest update to our main Arma 3 modpack. This modpack is the result of the fifth iteration of our Mod Testing Team process, and I would like to thank all who contributed for their hard work during the process. 
    Unlike previous iterations, we are not rolling out any new factions. The focus this time is on refreshing the maps that we have, as well as giving out some great new options for both players and Zeus' to enhance missions.
    On the weapons side of things, we now have a UAV drone that comes with attachable weapons, the KA-137 UAV mod.
    On the vehicles side, we now have a Landing craft that can be loaded with vehicles and/or troops to give Zeus' more options for beach landing missions or similar, we are also adding in the Hatchet H-60 Pack, this gives more UH-60 models for Zeus' to use in mission, these birds have a more involved operation procedure for those pilots that want more immersion, with the caveat that Zeus' be willing to offer the RHS version if asked.
    For Zeus', we have a couple of things for you. First we have the Smarter tanks mod, to try and make the AI smarter in their use of tanks, whether it be the type of shell to use in the main gun or their tactics against infantry/other tanks, along with the O&T Expansion mod to give mission makers greater access to objects that otherwise are hidden in the game engine
    In the last few months, there hasn't been much in the way of updates to the mods in our modset and we had to remove one mod due to broken updates. As a result, despite the number of mods increasing, the modset has only grown by a modest ~1607 MBs
    Current (November) Modset Size (MB):    72947.6
    New Modset Size (MB):      74580.4
    Removed Mods (MB):    4053.1
    Current (November) Mods Count:    70
    New Modset Count:   80 (6 Removed, 16 added)

    Anyway, onto some useful information. The modset will be live on FK 1 from Monday, the 2nd of May.
    Below you will find a full list of what's come in, but the important parts are next: Mod Presets!
    Mod Preset & Installation
    The simplest way to get the new modset ready will be to import our new official modset into the Arma launcher
    Second Server
    FK2 has been setup with the new modset for testing, the modset above can be used on the server and from the go-live date the same modset will be used so you do not have to download 2 different modsets. The password on FK2 has been reverted back to the same as on FK1
