I think I'll probably run two different servers.

One would be 16 players, Option A, while the other would be 16 players with option D.

I may also run a seperate grudge-server consisting of 1 vs 1, full hard, all planes.

My biggest fear is forking over $130 month and not having any player interest.

With no more interest than shown, I'll probably set up a 'full hard' 16-player server and see how it goes.

I need the machine to do backups anyways. I just hate shelling out that kind of money for a dedicated backups box that does practicly nothing else.

Great idea Baldie - I was thinking of doing the same thing, but yeah, the price was what kept me from doing it.

I'm just always sick of waiting for someone to leave GreaterGreen...

But please limit planeset - I'm so tired of flying Doras against 51s...good luck!

(And if it won't hijack your thread too much - how exactly do you go about running this ded. server setting it up? - if it is a hijack could you post a new topic with the answer or PM? Thank you...)

Rgr the limited planesets. That VEF1 practice server that was running awhile back was a lot of fun. I don't know why more people don't get into early-war planes.

As for server costs/ setup... I'm already forking out a considerable amount for a linux server (for my business), so adding another box was easy (btw, the datacenter is setting up my new server as I type this).

For remote admin, just use Terminal Services to get a 'window' on the server. Then open up IE, download the dedicated server, and start configuring.

Since I don't plan to set up scripting (would rather wait for the dynamic-server-thingy in the add-on), setup should be pretty straightforward. I'll post the config on www.fighterjerks.com, (http://www.fighterjerks.com) along with the missions, in case anyone wants them.

The server will be in TX, I think. The company I lease servers from has datacenters in TX and VA, but I think the VA datacenter is limited to really high-demand customers.

I'm in KY and I get 50 ms pings to the TX datacenter, so it should be fast.

Option C but with no externals would be my choice.

I'd like to thank you for putting up a server and to make my only preference known. It is that there be some sort of icon allowed because I simply cannot positively id a plane at this point(I've only been playing for three weeks). Of course it's your server and you will do what you want, but since you asked, I thought I'd share my one request.

Well, its on HL as FighterJerks.

16 players, '42 planeset, totally empty map (no grnd units of any kind) with 1 red base and 1 blue base http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Icons, externals, padlock, minimap path, and speedbar are all on.

Teamspeak server is available at teamspeak.fighterjerks.com.

I'll leave things as they are for a few days before making changes... call it a 'burn in' http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now I just need a few decent missions and a better website.

cockpit on, externals, limited gray icons, speed bar, minimap path,Limited plane set years not importnat just historical match ups,TS with said and self policed of no spotting!!!!Find a few regulars to be admins on TS so if spotting is done, perps get the boot from TS. You can't have any admins unless you fully trust them with the game server.

My 2 cents

How about no map + full "difficulty". How about Restricted plane set late 1942.

Russian aircraft require skill to fly.
German aircraft require ten times that skill, and one hundred times the patience!

We have enough crimson sky servers , could use a good full real server.

I vote for D

TOAD, there are plenty of those servers in HL everynight - externals, padlock, icons, no CEM, no clouds, no pilot required, etc...

S!
