    Mess around as much as you ultimately can, add bots and whateva shit, so we can see what kind of load the Arma3 server causes.

    should I add TFAR to the server for the event on saturday or is it too late and will it confuse people since it's 2 days before the event and we added it?

    It's a little too late to implement it now but it would be good as a redundancy or for future events.

    Tested VOIP today. Worked but quality wasn't very good...

    We should consider it at least, if we inform people it shouldn't be an issue. The last time I tested voip it worked for me but for some reason it didn't work for half of the people, ingame voip is not reliable.

    I think it is a nice extra to the game. It isn’t that hard to master either.

    I actually wanted to keep things as vanilla as possible to potentially draw in new Arma players that might be turned off by mods. The most popular public servers right now, apart from altis-life, are "Invade and annex" servers that require no mods.
    The plan was to gradually implement mods in future events and keep them limited.

    I see however, that task force radio would enhance our gameplay dramatically.

    Here's what I propose:

    If the majority of people that show up tomorrow are basically "us", by that I mean the people just following this thread and having played some improvised sessions before, then we could quickly restart the server and enable task force radio and even RHS if that suits you guys.
    • If there are like 1-3 new players, I guess we would have to give them a quick tutorial.
      This would perhaps delay the event by 30 minutes but would give us a chance to use task force radio.
    • If there is a however an overwhelming number of new players 5-10, I'd strongly just consider keeping things vanilla.

    What do you think?

    I don't have RHS set up properly ATM, only TFAR is.

    I'm down with that.

    Alright, downloaded and installed it, but never used it
    I'll take a look at it later, but I might have little trouble in the beginning

    Yeah we should use TFR, it just works better than in game chat or all of us being in one ts channel.
