A friend of mine has just recently moved into a new condo which among other amenities offers an unbelievably fast broadband connection and has generously offered hosting services.
I would like to set up a scripted, dedicated server with settings similar to those found on Warclouds_44 but I have no idea where to start and I would also like some input in terms of what you guys would like to see...

Historical senario's , rooms limited to aircraft that can be flowen , team objectives are sadly lacking in most rooms , limited spawn points .

Also spawn ponits spread far apart enough in order to enable teams to group up and gain higher dog fighting altitudes with no map icons set this would also create to some degree - realistic bomber escorting / bombing runs and fighter intercepts .

Good luck with your server .

i wish you luck. once the DS does come out i suspect the online community will pick up.
peer-to-peer flying it too frustrating.

i prefer full difficult settings.

Maybe a scripted mission with the V1 rockets or a torpedo run on the Tirpitz Battleship...has anyone manage to survive an attack on this Ship?...its a bit of an animal http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
I set up a mission in FMB where some allied Battleships had to take out the Tirpitz just before the allied bombers flew overhead on route to bomb a V1 base... it took 3 allied Battleships to down it in time, otherwise she took out all the bombers passing near her...now thats a mother beautiful ship http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Goodluck with the server http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif ..as long as cockpits on i'll gladly join in http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/smileys-gun2.gif

1. Minimap on
2. Limited icons (enemy only) if any at all
3. NO externals
4. Alternate objectives other than simply plane/pilot count


Good Luck!

Sounds great, talk to vf22 sparx and the tdg squad, they should help you out. Like most they are all waiting for the patch and dedicated server software

Also try basing your maps on missions that might not be historical but practical within this sim engine to much flack & aaa make hella lag regaurdless of PC or connection...

This is an exzample from Smokys server he has missions based on these ideas & it works well.

Tank Busting mission
Tank Busting mission with limited plane set.

Dam Busting Mission
(Its awsome he made this Dam across a river one for each team theres gun boats & a few cargo ships too)

Train Busting Mission.
Convoy Busting Mission (Winter).
Bridge Busting Mission.

Get the Idea ? These are not nessicaraly historical but in some sence they are because many dams trains bridges etc..etc... were attacked in the war.

He keeps the flack/aaa Light for less lag & NO SKIN DL also the HOST should set his network connection speed to ISDN no matter what the ISP is providing TRUST ME !!!

Great tips guys...
In terms of settings.......I will probably be going with the same set available on warclouds......
I will try to re-create practical historical scenarios with rotating ground objectives...Dam busting and Tirpitz attack missions sound great, I might need some help building these.

First thing first though...what software do I need for a dedicated server?
