Enigma's Dynamic Cold War Campaign PVP/PVE Server
The purpose of this server is to provide a dynamic campaign server that is set in the cold war that is accessible and avoids frustrating mechanics. The focus is air to air and air to ground activities. Some highlights:

-PVP/PVE with a dynamic frontline that moves in real time and does not require a server reset for it to move.

-Overlord GCI Bot

-Curated Equipment set in Early-to-Mid Cold War

-All WVR Fighting no FOX-3 missiles and a focus on iron bombs and unguided rockets with some air-to-surface missiles.

-There will be an abundant of helicopter missions that do not focus around slinging but are more about having an impact on the frontline.

-There will be strategic targets that impact the frontline movement. There are AI bomber flights too.

We consider ourselves in open beta. We are not at v1.0 yet. This outlines the current priorities:

-Building road bases between the forward airfields and the center of the map to allow for faster time to target.

-Adding more helicopter missions

-Player Stats / Campaign Point Restrictions

As a complete neophyte to DCS and especially Cold War jets, I've really enjoyed playing on the server.

Dynamic PVP campaigns offer a lot of cool incentive  to try to move the map.

I've been impressed with how relatively smooth the server launch has been and the US time zone population has been really good (managed to have good sorties even at odd hours).

Hope to see more good stuff on the server and in terms of development!

I read the FAQ for the server.  Do I understand it correctly that the only task for Helicopters  for now  is simply relegated to flying to the front and attacking ground targets there?

As of right now helicopters are only tasked with attacking the front. We have some large plans for helicopters that will not require engaging the enemy but will have an impact on the front line.

Hi Enigma,

thank you for your quick reply.Ok, understand, looking forward to other and more diverse Helicopter missions on the server then.

Server patch being applied today or tomorrow with a lot of changes

 

 

ok you asked for wha we think about these changes:

do your own thing and stop copying elements like the road bases which look almost the same as on alpy server..... I already told you about other things.

and since youre excited about having the numbers keep things as simple and arcady as they are. that attracts more players who just wants to play and like i told you you will have a name in the game and lots of fame. your youtube channel grows and youre the king 😉

love you

again a very thought through concept and an iterative approach - for a Cold War setting on top!
Also a surprising performance to this point for the population ratio of the conflict zone.

But a question remains: 
Why the magic GPS marker?
avigation via TACAN, ARC, RSBN, terrestrial is an important part of the gameplay and interaction loop that also contributes to pacing and character of PvA interactions and players themselves.
It also - longterm - defines the likeliness of SRS teamwork and GCI interaction (Overlord or human).

The magic self-omniscient GPS marker on the F-10 map thus seems like an odd concept fissure.. even somewhat detracting or dragging the experience seemingly sought off in the wrong direction a little bit.

Unless this is a conscious choice for popularity, which is absolutely viable and feasible - but a little off-pitch with the experience-outline.

of course! he wants the popularity so he does it more arcady which is why his server is more for beginners and thats good so no need for asking for things like RSBN and stuff. whats the point? turn it into something like alpens? lets not push him to copy more stuff he should have his own thing to avoid frustrating mechanics like on alpens as he made it clear on his main post 😉

Most players in DCS fly the modern day stuff. We wanted to make this for server for broad interest and to make sure that the server was full and that the dynamic campaign was 24/7. This is why we have F10 markers, to make the barrier of entry lower.

This is a game noting more, if this bring more casual or new players perfect. There is plenty of other servers to choose from. How lucky we are to have dedicated people that take time to built those so us the armchair Air Force pilots can enjoy.

Our team as put in countless hours, and poured in many dollars to make this campaign work and host it. 

And the community response has been fantastic. (barring some obvious malcontents and trolls) 

For right now our mentality is to cast the widest net possible, and keep the barrier to entry low.

We were honestly not expecting the level of population we got consistently throughout the week while we were still in our Beta phase. 

Once we complete our initiatives for our vs 1.0 features and get completely out of beta, we will look at adding enhancements to the campaign. That may come in the form of adding difficulty (re navigation) or balance changes, new weapons, etc... 

But right now as we've said on our discord we want to make sure "vanilla tastes good" before we add new flavors. 

The development team is very active on the discord, so if you guys are interested in adding suggestions or feedback, please don't hesitate to contact us there. 

Also thanks again for all the help and support from the community, ED, and the rest of the publishers and admins that have helped us make this campaign a reality. 

Good hunting out there everyone!

Didn't know Alpen owns the concept of roadbases. Or Cold War in general. Perhaps if his server was better moderated there wouldn't be such an outflow of players.

If players have thoughts of splitting up default AWACS GCI and player GCI let us know. We are considering splitting up the channels.

I think it could be pretty useful to split them up, listening to the default AWACS GCI is a bit annoying as I prefer to use the Overlord Bot (goodbye dollars), but I have really enjoyed working with a player GCI when they pop in. Similarly, I like using a channel to talk to other players, but right now that channel is also the default AWACS GCI channel (which I don't use and mostly try to ignore).
