  1. The problem is balance. A 'realistic' server would be too one sided. Despite how passionate some people are about wanting 'realism' in the game... all that craving goes straight out the window when they start getting AMRAAMs in the face, and people end up leaving the server. Then the focus moves from 'hey I want a realistic server' to 'hey this isn't fair, everyone is on Blue' Sadly we do not have enough full fidelity aircraft to properly balance the teams so any realistic East vs West set up would always end up with more clients on Blue than on Red. You have to be careful what you wish for as you will quickly find that a hyper realism server would quickly just become a NATO power train with Red getting rolled over every match. No one wants to be part of that... which is why there are very little if any servers set up like this. Because most people do not want to fly FC3 aircraft on Red against Full Fidelity modules on Blue plus the Blue FC3 aircraft, aircraft sides have to be mixed or be made unrealistic. If you don't do this you end up with an empty server or basically just a PvE server where everyone is on the same team, because the bottom line is there are no Full Fidelity Red jets and not enough people who want to fly FC3 against Blue. There are servers with non mixed teams however with aircraft being only available on one side. Blue Flag is a great example and also the 104th server is currently running a 'Navy vs Airforce' mission set with F-18, F-14 and A/V-8B all being available on Blue and all the other FC3 jets and M2000 available on Red. The only mission with mixed aircraft on both sides is our Persian Gulf Sandstorm that has the F-14 on Blue but also a limited number on Red for the Iranian forces. While most of us crave realism to a certain extend, however the majority of online players want to have fun and flying in highly populated servers is very intense regardless of how realistic the set up is. This is what makes it popular, the intensity and fun that people have. The cold, hard, sad truth is, a hyper realistic server would only be fun for the Blue aircraft. Despite how motivated some Red pilots would be after a while you would see a huge drop off in their numbers and it would turn in to a Blue PvE mission. This situation won't change until we start to get Full Fidelity Eastern aircraft.
  2. Guys when is the 104th vs TAW event going to be streamed? Its been 3 days since the match and all we've heard is 'I haven''t decided when Im going to stream yet'. Its really disappointing that the biggest match of the year with both teams going in to the fight undefeated was not streamed live and there has still been no announcement to when the match is going to shown. What is going on?
  3. Thanks Oceandar, I will take a look today and try and get it fixed!
  4. Hey bro! Thanks for the data mate, we decided to keep it at a 12 hour runtime however to give the Red side a realistic chance of defending for a reasonable time frame against a well stock adversary.
  5. Our latest mission Operation Sandstorm is up and running! Another addition to our 'Attack vs Defender' mission type this time for the Persian Gulf map. There are SIX target airbases- Lavan Island, Kish Island, Lar Airbase, Bandar Lengeh, Tunb Kochak, Tunb Island AFB. Red Force start from Bandar Abbas, Havadarya and Qeshm Island and are tasked with defending the target airfields for 12 hours to achieve victory. Blue Force start from the USS Stennis Battlegroup and Al Dhafra Airbase, captured airfields will also unlock aircraft for Blue Force to spawn in. Blue can achieve victory by capturing all six target airfields inside the 12 hour time limit.

  7. We're still fighting the good fight mate, 13 years and still going strong :D Great to see you still in the community mate, I hope life is treating you well! I've fixed this in the next version of Dark Water, thanks mate!
  8. Our latest mission is now live on the server! A coastal base capture mission with five capturable airfields featuring CTLD Helicopters that are deployed from the Black Sea on an LHA Carrier.

  9. TacVIEW is now available on the server for an ongoing trial!
  10. We are running a trial with player only externals turned on so clients can admire their own aircraft.
  11. Operation Abruzzi Operation Abruzzi is a medium scale base capture mission featuring and East vs West aircraft set up. Both sides have the ability to shut down each others airbases as well as attack strategic targets located throughout the map. Once an enemy has destroyed all ground units protecting an airfield the friendly coalition will no longer be able to spawn at that airbase. Red Airbases = Tbilisi, Vaziani, Beslan, Mozdok, Nalchik and Min Vody Blue Airbases = Kutaisi, Senaki, Batumi and Kobuleti. Scenario Russian forces have invaded Georgia and seized the capital of Tbilisi and its surrounding areas. After putting up some resistance the Georgian Government called for NATO to assist in the region resulting in an escalation of the conflict. This has led to NATO forces landing on the Eastern shores of the Black Sea while Russia tries to strengthen its position in Tbilisi by sending reinforcements through the Transkam Road and the Darial Gorge. Target Areas Bullseye South Bullseye North Bullseye East (Tbilisi) Target locations are given as a position from BULLSEYE. To get target coordinates use the F10 map and ruler tool. Draw a line to the target using the BRA information given in the briefing and note down the coordinates. Alternatively you can leave a marker on the F10 map and navigate to your chosen target area that way. 104th Mission Thread - http://community.104thphoenix.com/topic/1308-operation-abruzzi/
