I come in here and hear whines about no good non-arcadish servers on HL. Well I was with ya, but what you guys really need to do is check out the Warclouds_Real server. Good settings (speedbar and minimap only), ground target objectives to hit, great for squads. Come check it out. If it seems boring, stay a bit, the more people in a server the more it will attract. While your waiting practice some ground attack.

Hello http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I use the warclouds FR server and it is very nice.
I live in the UK and at the times I have used it I have not see anyone else there or join http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif... now I may see some company http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

The flak is fierce and I enjoyed my time alone to practice the skill of "ground pounding".

Its an excellent selection of maps, defences and missions, and all with the right mix.

There was no lag present .. but then I was the only one present!.

Actually his headline was quite clever (if intentional). It would get more full real people looking. A sort of reverse-psychology!

How's the plane selection?

I find it rare that even full real servers rotate time periods, or limit the planeset; if all planes of a side are enabled, invariably everybody tumbles into the '44/45 ueberplanes, effectively reducing the planeset to about 3 a side.

As for planesets, I believe they are limited per scenereo

I thought your server leaving would leave a void. Seems like everyone in here is all talk though, Warclouds is still empty. Its a shame, everyone talks big about wanting good servers when they are in here, but when it comes down to it everyone flocks to the arcade ones.

The reason i removed my server from every days hosting is simple... Mudmovers are back, Baldie has great server running, greater green, Blazing_Magnums.. enough FR servers as is. So i decided to head over COOP land and installed FB on my hosting machine. Must say last night was a success, full house all night and it was a blast! Tonight more COOPs

I feel you are right on target with that remark about the FR vs the Arcade servers. The UBI forum is dominated by people who swear by FR only, even some of them who carry it as a religious crusade...but where are these people online?

Part of the reason I leave full real servers is attendance...not much fun with 1 or 2 other peeps in game and it's rare to see a server actually full.

Inevitably I think people are drawn to action, this is after all the reason we bought the game, to fly and fight, right?

The more options are set to make it easy to find the enemy, the more people will come. Just an observation and not a comment on which is better.

Full Choice: find a server with settings you like and have fun. Everyone in the server has the same advantage or disadvantage with respect to finding the action.

SPaRX said the server has now moved from UBI to Hyperlobby for a few weeks.

I used it again for an hour (ish) and no one came ?.

Well Ivan, I guess one of the main reason I liked yours was that there were actually people in ithttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Greatergreen is ok, but its mostly people looking to get better scored in there standings, never much of a ground attack crowd.

Yo, I'm at work. Gimme a break ova heeuh. If it's still running when I get on then I'll give it a go. But I'm big into VEF. So that may be one reason those few FR servers offered don't see a lot of traffic at certain times. Many of the FR junkies (of whose number I proudly include myself) are flying VEF. Cuz in addition to FR settings it's nice to have a mission too.

It drives me nuts as a full real/hard junkie. Had an awesome night on Blazing Magnums a few nights ago, good crowd. Then its empty for 3 days. WTF?

Seems alot of people do like to talk, then join the other 90% of players in the no cockpit, icon encrusted, padlock servers. I'm not bashing anyone's preference in settings, to each his own, it's just that people talk a good game but the numbers don't come close to matching up.

FighterJerks probably wont be up much longer. Its not FR, and was never meant to be. I figured I'd try to bridge the gap so that arcade players could take thier game a step closer to harder settings, while allowing FR-fantatics a place to play with less-insulting settings than most of the servers on HL.

Stupid was my idea.

There's seems to be a mid-day crowd (EST time), but evening fliers avoid it like the plague.

These are mostly american players (the people who avoid my server), if that says anything.

So, I'll ride out the servers lease for another month, and then I'm dropping it. Flying alone shouldn't cost anything.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. We have a few scripted series underway to add to our current selection. But I know some of the guys have grown a little bored of the current selection and are happily awaiting the next set.

Basically, it seems we all have to join in (my squad I mean) in order to kick start the room. If I come on and none of my other m8's are on, I usually wont head to our server because one man in the room is hardly a draw. But if there's a few of us then it works out. I think even a few of our boys are ready to dive back in once we get new mission sets polished and published.

In the meantime, if there is anyone who wants to submit scripted map sets as possible additions to our FR series to help establish a better selection for the FR crowd, please email me at raven@bm357.com..

Once I get done with my set (which is getting very complex) I will have something pretty intense(I believe) but until then maybe some outsiders might be interested in submitting some sets for their own FR experiences on our server... Hello? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

S~ Baldie, Slammin, Raven, and Crazyivan. Isn't this server hosting a blast http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ?

Well anyway, thanks for the props on the server lbhskier37 (dont remember your HL handle sorry) Yum_Yum, and Zen. I have tried really hard to setup some servers for everyone to enjoy. We do have three servers running right now. A little bit of everything for everyone. The Easy and Medium Servers are on UBI.com right now, there are plenty of them on HL and they get alot of play at UBI. The Real server didn't see much action at UBI, so i thought i would give it a shot at HL. We shall see. Missions on the Real server are based on Ground target objectives. ALot of things for you ground pounders to blow up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif . Right now there are 5 maps in rotation, and i have two more on the plate that should be up this weekend. As with Raven, finding the time to make and test these missions is probably one of the hardest aspects of running a scripted server. I too have put out my request for help designing maps/missions for the server, but never really got any response. So if you are looking to be creative, get ahold of me. The maps/missions are not historical based right now. Personally , i would enjoy those, but i am making missions for 3 servers right now. And making historical missions with historical planesets for easy and medium servers dont work. People will just leave when their beloved Yak or LA are not in the planesets. I am kind of hoping that this Real server can evolve into a historical based server with some good missions to go with it. But we shall see. If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact me.

S~ and happy flying
