  1. Yes we have noticed this also. I am working on a way for the server to load up the GUI faster to try and combat this issue. It annoys me as much as it annoys everyone else as I want you all to have the best experience possible when playing on DTG.
  2. We go around and remove these flags. If there is no base then it is not a territory and just a spawn beacon which is not allowed.
  3. I hear your concerns and I agree with you all. We will go more down the route of individual players rather than the entire family. If it doesn't workout then we will look at the steeper choice of the overall family.
  4. This was easily avoided by leaving all territories, placing your own flag down, and then being invited to all the territories again. But we will work on something where it may not be tied to the family but the individual. A more permanent fix of how it was supposed to work with the only being apart of X amount of territories.
  5. The HVP mod pack was removed due to players having trouble joining to the server since the Mod pack would call to The Birds N the Bees, which we do not use. To end the complication we removed the outdated and no longer supported mod pack.
  6. The base limit script is already in the works and the family will be limited to 3 bases. As for group sizes, there are a few large groups on the server of more than 6 players. Some groups are international so their members are not all on at one time, but to limit them to a certain size would cause friends to split up and be apart of different families. This is not ideal as players will simply leave the server to go else where where they all can play together whenever they want. Because of this I can't support that idea.
  7. With your acknowledgment of the issue and your promise not to do it again We will reduce the time on the ban to 24 hours. Because a mechanic of the game was being exploited we can not lift all punishment for the exploit. Thank you for being civil and understanding.
  8. Below are clues to locations and objects or building types. It is up to you to decipher the clues meaning, location, and object/building type. Once you have the answer, head to the location and stand infront of the object/building and snap a screenshot (F12). Send the screenshot to me in a PM on Discord with the name of the location and the object/building in question. I will inform you if you are correct or to keep searching. A new clue will be posted everyday, with a total of 7 clues. The Grand Prize Winner will earn 250k Poptabs, 50k Respect, and a vehicle of their choice that is currently offered on the server. Good luck to everyone! (1) I gave this crate once to my dog to hide, but he heard a bell and ran away salivating, so i have no idea where he hid it. (2) Damnit! Varg Vikernes was performing in town. He ran off yelling about Satanism with a box of matches and gloves on. (3) My train was delayed and I need to find an outlet to charge my phone. (4) They tried to make me go, but I didn't want to. I got away and ran off to hide in the orchard. I hope they don't find me here. (5) I turned on my radio and heard "This message will play every hour if operators are no longer responsive... Unable to quarantine the area... We are holding out in greener pastures..." (6) It came out from the depths of the water and hit us. Whatever it was, it returned to the reefs and left us washed up on shore. (7) A long time easter egg on the map, I believe it says "gnome". We have a winner to the scavenger hunt. I want to that all of you who took part in this week long event. Don't worry if you didn't win this time, as we are in the process of working out a new scavenger hunt. Next time it will be a sprint to the finish line, and the first one there will win. So stay tuned to the announcements for the next event.
  9. I just want to make sure I’m reading this correctly. If I were to use a game mechanic, not once but twice, to go thru the bottom of a floor to the top of the floor, then that is not glitching thru but a bug?
  10. I’ve been messing with infiTARs null damage feature as this is the same one that other servers use. It seems I got it working for everything except quads. I’ll keep working on it and see if we can get it working completely.

    Few suggestions

    Right now the build height limit is 30 meters. We came up with that number as it is just tall enough to put you over the tree line. This way you can have a wooded base and still land ontop of it with a helicopter. We understand that some groups are very large and can have what seems as an unlimited number of spawn options. As I don't want to remove base spawning, we may be able to come up with another idea that will help with both issues with out penalizing too many people in the process. Whether that is once you use one base spawn they all go away for X amount of time, or number of bases are tied to families so once a family has X amount of flags placed, they can't place anymore. Something along those lines. I would rather spend more time brain storming on a solution than recoding one and it turn out to be a disaster.
  12. A big welcome back to our returning community members, and welcome to all who are joining the community for the first time. DTG Exile is back and hitting the ground running. Allow us to go over a few changes to the server and give you a road map for future updates. MISSION & LOOT ONLY CONTENT The following are only obtainable through missions or looting buildings Mission ONLY Vehicles Venom Gunship Escort Pawnee Armed Orca ZU23 AA Ural Mastiff HMG Mission/Loot ONLY Weapons Lynx Sniper M320 LRR Sniper AS50 Sniper M107 Sniper KSVK Sniper Strela AA Launcher NAVID SPMG MG42 M60E4 MK48 M240 Mission/Loot ONLY Items UAV Terminal UAV Drone LRPS Scope Leupold Mk4 Scope Nightstalker Scope Suppressors Explosive Satchel Explosive Charge Cement Full Ghillies Removed Vehicles CROW M2 Remote Turret HMMWV Dingo 2 MG Remote Turret Mi-6T Hook C130 DC-3 By removing these items and weapons from the trader, we are hoping to bring more balance to the server and encourage players to leave their bases. We have spent a great deal of time working on the new loot tables; but understand that nothing is perfect the first time. Player feedback is necessary to tweak the loot tables for missions and buildings to optimize your player experience. Please understand that we do not want it to be too easy for you to obtain everything, but you shouldn't have to spend weeks hunting for a particular item. This isn't Dayz. NEW FEATURES Territory Anti-Raid Protection This feature is more for new players who are still learning the game. A new territory will be given 7 days of protection or until the flag reaches level 3, whichever happens first. After that time the base will be vulnerable to raids. During protection players will not be able to place charges, grind locks, and hack safes or virtual garages. Anti-Floor Peeking As many veterans know it is easy to glitch your gun thru the floor and kill the player below you. As this is bannable, there are players who still take advantage of this glitch and the risk of a ban. To help fight against temptation, you will now be force into a upward crouch position if you attempt to use this exploit. Radiation Zones These areas will generate higher loot spawns, and rare loot spawns. Items that have been removed from the stores will spawn here in greater numbers than at other areas. We will further expand the uses of these areas with specialized missions and other features soon. Carriers & Destroyers We are happy that we have been able to rewrite the build limit script to include the surface of the water. Because of this we have added in 2 Aircraft Carriers and 3 Destroyers onto the map. These ships are static and have no weapons on them. These are strictly for water bases. We can add more in the future if needed, but we are happy with the current number on the server. Also be aware the Arma 3 Carrier is not the modded Carrier as seen in some videos and access is limited to the main deck. The Destroyers however, are very spacious and have a very detailed interior which is why we added 3. NEW FEATURE ROAD MAP We will be working on new features for the server that will be released once they are fully tested and functioning as intended. Please be patient as we work on these features and understand that we aren't setting a release date for any particular feature. Additionally, note that these features listed aren't in any particular order. Working Mine Detector Currently you are unable to use a mine detector due to the fact that you are not assigned an Engineer role as an Exile Player. All Exile Players are assigned a rifleman role. We will be introducing a work-around for this issue and introduce mine detectors soon. Randomly moving Rad Zone We will be working on a system that will select a random town and turn it into a radiation zone for a short period of time. The winds will slowly move the zone from town to town throughout the server session. Family Invite Permissions for non-owners Currently only the owner of the family can invite other members to the family. We will be adding in a ranking ability so that other members of the family can invite new members instead of waiting for the family owner to come online. And a few other *Hush Hush* features we are working on. Should be a lot of fun, and can't wait for you guys to try them out.
  13. So someone has taken my Grass Cutter and added it to their server I'm assuming? We have the majority of what you are talking about already. You can spawn a quad with duct tape which you spawn with, view a crafting menu, Player Market (with more changes coming to it soon), our Status bar isn't customizable but a DTG status bar, and view distance settings. We also have some features that other servers don't have as you need our server side PBO to run them. I hope once you are able to join you checkout everything and supply use with feedback. We will also be posting an announcement before launch of some of the features we are currently working on for the future.
  14. Welcome to DTG, we're happy you will be giving us a try on our re-launch of the server. A quick history of DTG, we started in late 2015 aand were forced to shut down in 2018 when Tyler and myself were overwhelmed with College. We were unable to give the server the love and attention we needed, and we didn't want to neglect the community and DTGs name. Now that we have more time we are bringing DTG back and hopefully we can see another 3 to 4 years of DTG hosting Exile. As for swearing, the only words that are not allowed on our servers are racial slurs. Other than that you can say whatever you like as long as it doesn't become too toxic, but we understand things can get heated in the moment of a fight. We hope you enjoy DTG and we welcome all feedback to try and bring you and the rest of our players the best gaming experience we can.
