  1. With the advanced medical system we really need to consider the bigger picture and that is the enjoyment of all and not just a few so by that I mean AAC. For them I expect some missions can get pretty boring especially if there is a lack of CAS and the only job they have is to haul our arses back into the field. Having the limited respawn alone is not an option that I'm willing to even consider as it would basically make AAC redundant and it would be extremely selfish of those that play on the ground to expect. I would challenge those who think this would be a good idea to join AAC and play a mission with just the limited respawn to see how fun it is. For the advanced medical system to work I think we need to put an end to the call of duty shit we've currently got going on. Missions need to be smaller and objectives need to approached slowly and we need to stop being afraid of downtime. In regards to team leaders I would like to ask those that are interested in the position of 4ic to send me a PM telling me why you would like to be in this role. This is to avoid any situation where someone is being forced into a role they don't actually want to be in. Applications are open to all but I understand @personalvoid@MACKAULE @Juan Sanchez have expressed an interest already. @GuzzenVonLidl ACRE is something we can consider testing again in the future but for now let's stick to TFR as that would be another change to contend with. For now could you please assist @Jasonwith the integration of the modifications that Jason has made into the framework which will replace the current advanced medical system settings.

  3. I want to increase the number of team leaders. This is what I mean, so there will always be people available to run the mission.
  4. What I would like to do is set out some goals for GOL to try and accomplish over the next few weeks / months. To begin playing campaigns again starting with the four week campaign made by four different mission makers ideally I would like to introduce at least two new mission makers here rather than the missions being made by the usual suspects. Introduce the advanced medical system / limited respawn into every main mission. Increase the number of contributors to the mission making rota both on Tuesday and Saturday. To increase the number of pilots - if you're interesting in joining AAC let me, Jason or Raptor know. increase the number of people who are able to carry out leadership duties. Right now we have fill in team leaders but I am looking to make this a fixed position - @Juan Sanchez @personalvoid @MACKAULE These are the goals that I have set out for the group if there are any that you think should be added then post below but I think we all need to know what we are aiming to do and work together to achieve them. Out of interest I decided to take a look at the number of missions that we have created. The numbers here are based on forum topics that have been created for missions and I know that there are lots of times when missions don't get their own topics so its not a completely accurate figure but it gives you an idea of what the numbers look like. Ideally I would like to start adding some more names to this list. Name Missions Oksman 112 GuzzenVonLidl 67 R4IDER 60 Jason 45 Baron 43 Lt.Chris 35 Filth 27 Goralight 22 Chipmonk 18 Pirate 17 Beny 16 Moogle 15 PARKER 13 Arron 8 Bakakun 6 hoofed 3 joona 2 NeKoArroW 2 Tazoo 2 Akena 1 Luke 1 McDeuce 1 SoKkada 1 Juan Sanchez 1 irishguard 1 Chippy 1 DevilGhost 1
  5. Bohemia Interactive announces Arma 3 Laws of War DLC New humanitarian faction, van, drone, mini-campaign, and more Previously referred to under its codename "Orange DLC", we've finally revealed... Arma 3 Laws of War DLC! Available worldwide in the beginning of September, the Laws of War DLC explores a different perspective on the battlefield via the addition of a humanitarian faction, van, drone, mini-campaign, and much more. Some of the basic principles of the laws of war, which are also commonly referred to as International Humanitarian Law (IHL), are further introduced in the DLC's new reveal trailer. https://youtu.be/DwU0Hnch_28 The Laws of War DLC delivers new playable content, together with many new in-game assets, providing even more opportunities for various types of combat operations and roleplay in Arma 3. Its key features include: International Development & Aid Project - This new faction, IDAP, is a non-governmental organization which is specialized in rapidly responding to humanitarian disasters. Mini-Campaign - Take on the role of IDAP explosive specialist Nathan MacDade, who is tasked with identifying and deactivating mines after the war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis has ended. Van - IDAP makes use of a new van, which comes in multiple variants, with over twenty custom liveries in total. Utility & Demining Drone - IDAP has a new drone at its disposal to be able to quickly move supplies to a specific location or assist with demining operations. APERS Mine Dispenser - The APERS Mine Dispenser is an effective but controversial area denial weapon system. It is typically only used in desperate situations. Vests, Bags, Headgear & Facewear - Various pieces of new gear help carry out your duties, including safety vests and goggles, hard hats, messenger bags, and more. Additional Content - Time trial challenges for the new van and drone, a paramedic outfit, and a training mine. In addition, the Laws of War DLC will be supported by a major free Arma 3 platform update. Its highlights include: Refined cluster strikes The simulation of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) The ability to drop (custom) leaflets from the sky Two new Showcase scenarios (Showcase Laws of War and Faction Showcase IDAP) Emergency and medical supplies such as food bags, water bottle packages, blankets, stretchers, and IV bags Decorative objects such as shelter tents and new furniture Extra Steam Achievements Scheduled for official release in the beginning of September, the Arma 3 Laws of War DLC is available for pre-order with a 10% pre-order discount. A portion of the proceeds from the direct sales of the Laws of War DLC in 2017 will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

  11. @personalvoid Donated £8 and set up a monthly reoccurring contribution Thanks @personalvoid I will create a donation tracker hopefully this week if I have time
  12. Well obliviously GOL isn't a political party so by making a donation you are not buying influence but instead you are contributing to the running costs. Maybe the word ownership was a bad choice. In the unlikely event that more funds are raised then required then this will roll over into the costs for the following month. If this happens often then I will look into upgrading the server. Realistically though I doubt the above will happen.
  13. The monthly charge is £88, what I can do is set up some kind of donation tracker so everyone can see who's donated and the amount that was donated.
  14. The server pot is my bank account, so don't worry Gora it's not going into a secret off shore bank account that will then get used to buy myself new shit. Chris foots 50% of the Bill which he sends to me each month and I pay the rest and sort out the web hosting and team speak hosting. The donation page is something that has been mentioned to me a few times and with the recent discussions about the future of GOL it has been stated that me and Chris are overlords since we fund everything. The donations page allows others to gain a bit of ownership. It has been suggested that contributing financially to the running of GOL would make members feel like they had much more of a say in how GOL moved forward. 1) The money goes into reducing mine and Chris's monthly bill. As for what it will be used for see my response to Gora. 2) Already answered above. 3) The financial side of GOL isn't really something anyone other than me and Chris deal with so I didn't think to ask for any further input, however this can be discussed further in a meeting and if decided the page can be taken down. Donations are not compulsory and the page was put up to see if there would be any interest.
  15. About a year ago it was suggested that I should set up a page which would enable members to contribute to the group financially. I have always been reluctant to do this. I have finally taken the time to create a donation page, it is in no way required and we are in no way in dire need of financial support but the option is there for anyone who would like to contribute to the group in this way as it would help reduce our monthly bill. Here is a link -> http://www.gol-clan.co.uk/donate I may expand on this page at some point and show a list of the members that have contributed and the amount that was contributed but for now its just a bog standard page just to see if there is any interest. Thanks.
