How to join

Time in the calendar should be automaticallyadjusted to your own timezone, but just to make sure, this training will start at 1530GMT. Expect roughly 2 hours of time taken, but consider that dealing with technical issues and minor delays could add approximately 20 minutes.
You're expected to have the mods from our modset downloaded via Steam. Make sure you have the latest Modset.
This will download a file. Drag that file into your Arma 3 Launcher, and it will automatically subscribe to all the mods we utilize. It will also save those mods under a preset which can be quickly accessed, in case you ever use alternative modsets.
Please install the TFAR Plugin in TeamSpeak. Make sure it is the (BETA!!!) version featured in the Modset.
If you do not feel confident that your TFAR has been installed correctly, arrive a couple of minutes early, and I'll be happy to help sort things out.
IP and password will be given to you before we join the server.
