    FK 2024 Updated Costs

    By LurkerOne, in Website news, , 0 comments, 722 views
    Hello all, Since we changed to a new server, I thought to give an update on what our costs are going forward.
    FKZero & FK Luna
    The server we had up until August 2023 (FK Zero) was a high-powered box that was not being fully utilised and so as a cost-cutting measure we have move to a cheaper box (FK Luna) that still gives us plenty of headroom to run our FK Arma servers along with our Game of the month and similar games such as SCP & Minecraft, etc
    Website & Website Modules
    It was believed that the TeamSpeak module on the website was no longer accessible since we updated to a more recent version of Invision software (the software the runs our website) because the author hasn't updated the module in several years. Our tech found a way to continue using this function that was hidden in the settings and so updated everyone's profile to add this functionality back in.
    We are in the process of migrating away from the current website and forums and welcome any and all feedback to what we might have on the new website, please use the following form to give your opinion

    Future changes to the FK Modset development

    By Melo, in Community News, , 0 comments, 3,884 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.
    Summary:
    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:
    Done!
    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, 1,949 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/
