Posted: Fri Jun 20, 2014 6:27 am Post subject: New HSX BF3 server.
Well, out of my own pocket, I got use a BF3 server for the next 90 days. I also rented a Procon layer server to go with it. I spent most of the night and most of this early morning setting it up. The server went up easily, but setting up this procon layered server and adding stuff to it was not so easy.
You may be wounder, what is Procon? Procon is a system that allows us to admin, and do work to the server remotely. We are also able to add plugins to it so we can personalize our server to our liking. Well, now you may ask, do we have any plugins added? The answer is yes. We are currently using 6 plugins, 2 default plugins and 4 custom plugins I've added.
ProconRulz is really like 10 plugins in 1. Granted, I only having it use 5 of the many things it can do, but basically what it will do is cover kill streaks, show messages like Ultra kill. Show a little message of the first kill belongs to. It also has a list of rulse which i believe can be seen by pressing the tild key, (~), and typing in console, !rules. I will need to look that up and put it in the automated server message.
MULTIbalancer, is just like it sounds. We all have been on those servers where the teams are stacked, or one team has 18 players and the other team only has 10. Well, this system moves players and will unstack teams and try keeping the match balanced. Granted, i do have our clan on the whitelist so we wont be moved. It will wait for the person its going to move to die, and when they die, it will move them. It will not kill a person to move them.
Votemap puts in a system where people can vote on next map.
PB Screenshots just allows a admin whiel in game, have the server either taks a SS of the whole server or you can do individual people.
There are other plaugins and scripts that I am looking at adding and I know I got more configuration to go. We are currently streaming through GGC and I am waiting for PBBans to re-activate our account so I can add them.
I believe I was talking to Delrick on this, but I have taken the first payments my self, (for 3 months), If you guys are going to want to keep it, then it will be up to the rest of the community to come up with the next payments for I will not cover any bit of the next 3 months.
I will also be setting up multi layered admin access to Procon. meaning a couple of levels and the higher the level, the more you can do. The reason for this is mostly to limit the amount of people that can really fuck up the server because they wanted to mess around with the settings without knowing anything about it. There is a lot of documentation on the settings, but I know for most of you, your just skimming through this post and not really reading it so that is the main reason, If you can't read this, then how can you read about 50 pages on this stuff.
