I just wanted to let all of you know that there is a new 24/7 ded server running at hyberlobby
it got full difficulty settings and currently no icons and 3 deaths=kick
this might change because its still in Beta and we are testing what people like the most

the server is hosted by the Deadeyes squadron shortly known as DEY
server location is in Norway

we are working on a bigger map rotation and better connection, currently 4 maps in rotation and 16 players max
for stats visit: http://www.deysquad.com/Stats/

the server is running east and westfront maps only

so pls drop by and have a look

thanks in advance

also guys, if you fly it and have any comments hopefully the powers that be wont have any problems with you posting them in here for a while till we get a forum for the server up and running.

Sure all you FR lovers out there can give it a try, and dont worry as we dont squad gang on one side, we are normally killing each other http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cool,there can never be too many FR servers.Will you be running early/late war maps & planesets?

thats the plan uther http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif there are a few Full real servers around but sometimes the action can be a bit drawn out due to distance etc...

What we are hoping is that this one has some good strategic elements to aim for. But also that you can get into the action fairly quickly and that non of the maps are so hated that people leave when they are up.

Its work in progress so all commnents welcome.

great news, wheres the server based from?

I personally hate waiting for the coops and onlinewars for as much as an hour and usually enjoy df stat servers most, But the same 3 great servers i fly in and flown the same maps and missions thousands of times get so boring. Also there are no df servers with no labels dedicated all are for the arcade crowd who need labels which takes away so much from the game. Visually Iding targets, there is no skill in bnzing labels. But kids will be kids and always need them, i think its rather funny the people who claim they have the most realistic df server use enemy, friendly labels and unhistorical planesets.

i kinda agree with you LS and thats why i rather have no icons at all so those who have the best SA may win
and like you said maps on the great servers like GG and WC can get boring and servers like WC only offer late war westfront planes
thats why i prefer to fly on GG but they got quite a few PF maps which i dont like

anyway our server is nothing compared with WC or GG but its a start

so im planning to make more mixed west and east maps and i prefer historical planesets but that not up to me because most people want all the uber planes if they are available and never fly a normal G6 La5 yak9 etc
im planning on late war maps with A8,G6 vs P51D, P47D, spit mkIX and less K4's Ta's and A9's
but some maps will have 262s and stuff like that

I dont know if it still works but you use to be able to reduce the runway radius very small on runways to limit the ammount of planes that spawn

I agree that there shouldn't be any icons for enemy planes.....but the way GG has them set up is good because you don't shoot down team mates.
I know we should be good enough to be able to ID what we are shooting at....but sometimes you just can't get a good look at them, especially when BnZ. I think maybe just a friendlies number at say 150-200m in grey is better than nothing....I don't think this is destroying reality because in real life your eye can pick things up a lot further out.
Just an opinion........:-) ~S~

I've just sent our server admin about 8 more maps which should be in the rotation soon. They are all historical planesets ranging from early to late war. No pacific stuff as yet.

Having no icons makes our server a bit different from gg and warclouds. Yes it can be difficult to id targets sometimes. If in doubt, don't pull the trigger!

We are not trying to compete with other established df servers, just offering some different settings and maps.

Hope to catch some of u there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

HL shows it as having map icons on, but no minimap path.. kinda funny? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Will try it out sometime http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good idea, as someone living in Europe I appreciate a FR server with a decent ping.

Do you plan on having a dedicated Teamspeak server as well ?

How about removing the speed bar ?

Good server http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Finally gave it a try today, it shows that with smaller missions and numbers its still a lot of fun! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nice missions with plenty to play with, and its actually more fun to take a bomber or ground attack config with less fighters in the air.
Had no stutters or lag, noticed perhaps one spawnstutter. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nice to have one more FR server on the HL http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif . And plz, leave the icons off - there are enough good servers on the HL with FR plus limted icons!

I was on your server for a while tonight and both maps I saw had only one airfield per side both situated quite near together. On one of these maps, there developped a furball right above the blue field with a lot of vulching and low and slow T&B fights. I think this is not good for getting the tactically/strategically oriented server u mentioned. I suggest, to put more airfields on every map so that people can get up elsewhere, if a field is strafed, to grab some alt and kick the vulchers into their a** http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif .

Greetings and good luck for ur server

Exactly my point.

DE server needs:

1. dedicated TS server
2. maps with objectives other than "destroy enemy planes"
3. maps with more airfields
4. move closest airfields farther away
