  1. I never thought to do that before! I'll get right on it! On a real note though, I'm working on it.
  2. Seems like you've been forced to quit already ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. You know @ Ryan 's been on the server with your menu when...

  4. Few things. "Better servers" is completely subjective. I personally, despite the current issues we are trying to combat and even if I were not staff here, prefer Olympus to any other Altis Life server. Maybe that's due to me playing here forever or what-not, but I digress. For the banning people because we *think* they're going to cheat or whatever... That just doesn't happen. When someone is suspected of scripting, they will ask around about it and the situation surrounding it. I go through and investigate to determine what our course of action should be and either find they were, or not. The ONLY time someone is banned for cheating and stays banned is when we have proof that they were. Even if people don't think they were, chances are if they stay banned, they were in fact cheating. In response to your complaints about "firing my employees" and the girlfriend thing... What are you even on about? Staff don't get removed very often, and players definitely aren't comparable to an employee or girlfriend. If you're trying to say that people get banned for no reason for "unfair" reasons as you put it, that's quite untrue. Someone breaks a rule, they get banned and if they didn't, they don't get banned. Sure there may be mistakes, but everyone is human and are capable of mistakes. These also usually get resolved quite quickly. To end this off, if you have general implements for the server that aren't "get rid of staff" or similar, and may actually have a constructive impact on issues, we do encourage these ideas. However, if it's some content that you're trying to get added, the developers are overwhelmed as it is so it may take time to implement.
  5. This was reverted almost immediately
  6. Little bit late to the party, but I'll give my 2 cents anyway. The staff team works in the best interest of the server and its community. There can be people who are swayed by personal interests and bias, but those few cases are monitored by other staff and we internally discuss those issues to rectify them. Power hungry isnt really what I would call any of our staff either, more along the lines of getting tired of dealing with toxic people all-day every-day, which results in our standards of what we constructively respond to, to be lower. I don't see anything inherently worse with Ryan's time as owner, as opposed to say Ares or any previous owners time. The staff team way back when had really no idea what they were doing minus Gary and select others, where as Ryan has worked with our Senior staff to weed out the toxic/biased staff in order to make the server a better place. Most people don't see how much effort really goes into this community, or into attempting to make sure people have as seamless an experience as we can provide. All in all, if you think there is an issue with staff or some staff member is giving you an issue, instead of publicly posting about it, make a general inquiry for it and ask for an admin or senior admin. The reported person will be evaluated based on what you provide as well as any evidence we may find, and will be talked to accordingly.
  7. Vermin Suppressed. Gotta have the tracers though, or you never know how high to aim
  8. Who gave this guy admin? I woke up without a kidney in a bath full of ice yesterday. Probably Jay

    o7 anti. You changed the cartel meta for a while, and I gotta respect it. Good luck with the new job!
  10. The development team has been swamped, with currently only 2 active developers and @Venommas a contributor. There is only so much that we can implement with the limited time that we volunteer to the server. As it is I spend most of my time these days trying to fix old code or rewriting things to be more efficient or making it easier to add things that people ask for. New content that gets made needs to be exploit free, because we all know from experience that someone WILL find it and they will exploit it. This makes it incredibly difficult, or atleast takes a significant amount of time just to make it work right. Despite all that, @Docwas working with @Techto create some dope content for you guys in the coming updates. Hopefully we are able to test it all with no issues cause I think they went overboard
  11. I will not say that it has NEVER happened, however it's definitely not happening NEARLY as much as you say it is. If staff see someone break a rule, they can talk to you if they think it was an accident, or ban you outright if it wasn't. Like Millenium said about staff in gangs being biased toward them, it's not true. If the situation was that a member in their gang broke a rule, they will not get banned by that staff member, but it WILL be brought up to any other staff that was not a part of that situation in order to avoid any kind of bias. If you get banned by a staff member and you think it was biased or wrong, you can always submit a ban appeal (if you first get denied by the banning staff member) requesting an admin, and then a senior admin if that still didnt work. If none of that works, you can probably gather that it wasnt biased at all, but your own misconception. We do look into that kind of thing, contarary to belief.
  12. Community is about as toxic as it used to be, can't really say it's gotten worse. As for staff being toxic, it's just not true. When you are presented with a fact by one of the admins that states a simple fact "The vehicle was not removed", and you come back stating that they are being toxic and not listening to the fact that it actually hasn't been removed, it does not make them toxic. It makes you seem toxic. The amount of blatant cheaters is WAY down, server used to get blown up weekly and now we only see it happen once a month or so. The not-so-blatant skids get banned 99% of the time within a few days, and will always get banned in the end. As for the low pop, you may or may not have noticed that the only servers that have more than 1 server anymore is KoTH and us. This is because not as many people are playing arma as a whole due to it being 8 years old. The suggestion itself has been brought up a few times throughout the time the server has been up, but has always been shot down due to one main reason. It's too over-powered. One DAR can blow up any vehicle aside from an ifrit or strider unless it's a direct hit, which it will still disable it completely if it doesn't. This would mean a single person with an armed hellcat could win literally any fight if they knew how to fly and flare properly.
  13. Have you tried it multiple times with reproducibility? Last change to anything relating to it.
  14. Nothing has been changed in terms of fuel consumption... never really thought I'd have to say that tbh. As for the insurance, you're the first that I've heard this from. The scripts that deal with that haven't been changed in months.
