Olympus+ Update - Olympus Entertainment | Giveaway + 4th of July Sale ×

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just started yesterday after buying Arma 3 on sale. I only played for a few hours as a Civilian but I really enjoyed it. I'll probably be buying the DLC today since it's in sale too.

The chat has been fairly helpful with what I'm guessing is a huge influx of noobs like me.

 

I do have a question I didn't think to ask yesterday. Is there a way to not draw your weapon when you exit your vehicle?

There's no way to not draw your weapon after exiting a vehicle unfortunately, it's an ArmA thing. 

 

Some tips you may have already been told, if you go to controls and custom controls in-game, custom action key 10 is your windows key by default, but you can rebind it. Custom action key 11 is a Redgull hotkey. Custom action key 12 is Earbuds.

 

Glad you're enjoying yourself and hope to see you in-game.

Have fun out there ^^ Remember to check out the rules before getting too far into the server to ensure that you don't get yourself in any trouble. I would def grab the DLC as they are pretty important for Altis. Just have fun with the RP, Olympus is quite the adventure c= and Welcome to Olympus!

Also if you get the time in and meet the requirements for R&R we are always welcoming new people to join, just go over the thread here!

Good Luck!

Bubbaloo and Danny have given you all the information you need, meaning server rules and the R&R ( Medic ) handbook. There is also the APD Whitelisted slots that I'm sure they would love to have you; so here is the APD master handbook if you get a chance.

Thanks for the replies. I browsed the rules yesterday but I will give them a more thorough read tonight.

 

I have no desire to break the law. So far I've been a law-abiding citizen and have no plans to change that.

I've been in a few fender benders. Some guy in a huge truck at night ran me over. I had my headlights on, he did not, and he was driving on the wrong side of the road (or atleast the wrong side of the road from where I was born). He ran me over, pushed me out of the way, and kept going. I didn't call the cops because I wasn't sure if there's anything they could do. There some some damage to my vehicle but I survived.

I think I might stay off the highway for now.

You could actually stop your weapon from being drawn by putting it into your backpack, providing you have a large enough backpack and a not too large weapon, I think everything up to a Katiba will fit into your backpack.

As anyone can tell you, if I'm on the road, get off of the road. I cause havoc and cannot drive for shit. And fear not, for eventually you will be cooking meth for those fat cash stacks at the end of it.

Welp I think I'm done. I just wasted 65k and was being corpse/revive camped.

 

After a 50k start from [BT] Matt I was able to build up 400k from copper mining around Kavala.

I decided to step it up and try Diamond mining. I bought the license, hopped in my car, and headed east. I made it about 2/3 there and 3 guys with Semi-auto rifles in a car rammed me and killed me when I tried to flee. It wasn't a RDM so I took it. But it was 3v1 which is never fun.

 

I got a revive from a medic, ran to the nearest gas station to buy a repair kit. I was in the store inventory when I heard hands up. I went to close the inventory and he killed me. BARELY 5 seconds. Dead. I called a medic and while waiting I saw some guy in a gimp suit (ghille I know. But he's an asshole so I'm calling it gimp) running around shooting at the medic to keep him from reviving me. Took me a good ~10 mins to get a revive. I stepped out the door and started running, I heard someone say SOMETHING and dead. Called the medic back, got another revive, and hauled ass. I made it back to my car, repaired it, and returned to Kaval.

I went from ~400k to 266k from deaths (10k a pop per revive) and wasted 35k on a diamond license I can't use without, APPARENTLY, being a crimial and using illegial weapons. I gave 150k back to [BT] Matt, thanked him, and logged off.

 

 

Edit: I tried Server 2 a while later but found out you lose all your items when you transfer? I had my ~100k in the bank but that was it. I couldn't get my car out of the garage because some asshole left his 4wheeler on it. I asked the cops to move it since they are permitted to impound vehicles that are blocking traffic. After ~15 mins of waiting I logged off.

He killed me within 2 steps of a medic rezzing me. All I was trying to do was to get a repair kit to repair my car so I could leave the area. The 1st death/car destruction was from 3 guys with full auto's that killed me. All I had was a .45 (WPL).

Big thanks for [BT] Matt who gave me 50k. In a day I turned that into 400k and gave it back to him.

Edit: Apparently you lose all items when switching from server 1 to 2? I have my bank money but my gun, ammo, pick axe, and food is gone. I still have my backpack. Weird

Diamonds is where you went wrong. Sometimes the most profitable things aren't always the best, they're robbed a lot. Maybe try something smaller, like sand, salt, or maybe iron. Then eventually you can move up to diamonds once you can defend yourself and be financially stable.

I just edited my Post @Augustus for clarity. But yeah, I didn't make it ANYWHERE NEAR diamonds. I was halfway, roughly, between Kavala and the diamond mine in the far east.

Any recommendation on finding server's that are Less "PvP|Corpse Camping|My name is DickMcWeed|Rebel|Terrorist|Asshole" and more Roleplay NOT "Hi, I'm a mass murderer. Hands up-- DEAD" friendly?

Then sand or copper both would be good options. They're both relatively close to Kavala, and the chances of getting robbed doing them is pretty slim.

Start with something small like copper and/or salt. You'll make it eventually. Don't give up, it's tough out there. Pair up with someone when doing runs. When someone yells at you " Hands up or die '' actually do it and see what comes out of it. Who knows, they might actually RP. Get cops to escort you. I know some that do that. I know I do when I play ;)

Altis life servers are usually all combat based RP. Bias aside, this is the BEST one out there.

Welp it seems the problem isn't just Olympus. I've tried 3-4 other servers now. They all seem to be toxic. Killing newbs on 4wheelers with no voice warning all in order to rob you for $0.

I've been playing off an on for a few days now. I stuck it out on Olympus and it's gotten better. Thanks everyone for the offers of escorts. I didn't rage quit afterall.

I broke a million bucks a few days ago doing copper/iron/diamond runs in a SUV with an upgraded storage. I'm probably going to buy a box truck and so some more of the same runs. I'm just a little concerned about how obvious it will be. In a SUV it's not quite as obvious what i'm doing and I can get around pretty fast.

I bought a WPL and the 5.56 Assault rifle (forget the name). I haven't had to use it yet (thankfully) but I have a feeling it might become a necessity if I start driving a slow, obvious, box truck instead.

Not sure what else to spend the money on. Maybe a house? I hear they're a million or higher. I had a guy try to recruit me into a gang when I was in Town but I said no thanks as I was focusing on legal money-making and I had a WPL. I think eventually I'm going to get bored. When that happens I'll probably try out medic since I have the money now to afford a medic-specific vehicle.

 

Thanks again for everyone help. I'll keep posting here as I play.

Once you get bored of runs, try out rebel life and robbing feds/people doing runs, do a jailbreak, etc. plenty more fun things to do out there than pressing windows key. if that's not your style then i'm sure you will enjoy medic, medic community has tons of nice and helpful people.
