New theme is still a work in process

I’ve added the forum and a social plugin called buddypress.  This lets you have all sorts of cool functionality, most of which in inaccessible right now.  I also deleted a LOT of accounts.  I’d prefer it if you used facebook to register to the site for now.  I have to delete over 300 bogus accounts to kick this off.  Reregister please.


Same great website – just updated the look and feel.  I hated how my previous theme broke the TS Viewer.  NO MORE!!!   🙂

More great news – we are prepping to add forums back in.  Check in again later.


SO a lot has been going on here lately – I recently updated the ArmA 3 Wasteland server to allow us to use the latest beta.  Please post to the forum if you have trouble connecting – its usually that the server hasn’t been bumped to the latest steam version.

The DayZ US 1154 server has been more stable now that it has been set to 24 hour restarts (8:00 AM Eastern).  It seems the Hive stopped crashing when I did that.

We are all (by all I mean most of us) playing a bunch of Payday 2.  Its a fun thing, in the general model of Left for Dead, with a little bank heist thrown in.  Fun to do.  You should try it.


As a lot of you know, there have been a lot of problems with the server lately.  It keeps hanging on a Internal Hive Error.  When it does, the process will not notify the system it is hung and the restarter will not do anything.  I have to manually kick it over.  I’m not sure WHY this happens, but I am working on it.  Please bear with me.  It seems to happen on server restarts ONLY.


UPDATE:  This appears to be a public hive only issue and is on “their” end.  It is being experienced all over.  It seems to self correct when I restart the entire server (ie hit restart).  More to follow.

The US 1154 DayZ server has been updated.  Please check it out.  Its been really busy lately and the changes have really shifted the paradigm.  Oh, and check out our Origins server – GET TO DA CHOPPA at 69.162.80.194:2362.  Like all our servers, we have active admins and enjoy providing these servers as a service to the community!

As most of you are already aware, some of our members have shown a strong interest in mission editing.  First, let me say that is GREAT news!  In an effort to both encourage it and facilitate their play, I have made changes on the AA server to allow us to play these.  We have also opened up an FTP port to allow members to upload their files to the server.  If you need to get access, hit up Muppet1856@ApocalypticArmy.com.

With these changes have come additional improvements – admins will no longer have the ability to bypass the password on the protected channel – this is to help with the immersion on missions and game-play.  If you need to talk to someone in that channel, just use the integrated chat – it still works.

Finally, I have put together a block of code that you can add to your missions to enable the automatic channel change stuff.  I’ll post it in the associated forum.

Enjoy the changes and happy hunting.

Just a few things about the website – 1st, let me thank all of you who have contributed over the last several months by playing, coding, creating artwork, and just hanging out.  It means a lot to me and I think it has been great so far.

I’ve been trying a few things out, like the repository, and adding an about us page.  Please read it and contribute to the comments so I can improve the overall message.  I’d really like to get this right – it’s very important that the About Us page reflects our passions and positions on things.
