http://www.foxholegame.com/ What is Foxhole? Foxhole is a massively multiplayer game where you will work with hundreds of players to shape the outcome of a persistent online war. This is the ultimate game of collaborative strategy and tactics. Every action you take can have a powerful effect across a world in a state of war. Features: - Sandbox warfare, where players determine the narrative of a long term war. - Players drive every element of war, from weapon manufacturing and base building to strategy and combat. - Execute long term strategies that take days of planning, changing the tide of the war. - Top-down, tactical combat where skills and strategy matter more than stats or XP points. - Conquer and relinquish territories in a back and forth, high stakes conflict. - Capture and setup supply lines to keep your front line well equipped. - Play as a persistent character throughout the war, gaining notoriety and influence among your faction. - Ammunition, resources, and information are limited, requiring players to work together to win. - Dynamic battle conditions: Use the time of day and terrain features to gain an advantage. - Join an alternate timeline universe where the great wars never ended and the world has been in conflict for hundreds of years.
This post will act as a place for us to share work in progress features which may never see the live servers, or may become the next big thing here at RPUK. As said above. Nothing here is final or is confirmed to be an upcoming feature, some items posted here may simply be prototypes of new systems, or just us testing out what ArmA can do. Feel free to make any comments though, suggestions will always be appreciated and may be credited depending on the size of the contribution (at our discretion, of course.) First - The new RPUK HUD: The text in the bottom left corner shows us some info which should be useful when looking at player's screenshots. The icons located above the text in the bottom left corner are status icons, they will always be anchored to the side. Meaning that if for example, the wanted icon isn't currently showing, the message icon will take the place of it. On screen currently from left to right (but not the only possible icons!): Wanted Icon Unread Message Icon Low Food Icon The bottom right bars are based off a design that was in the old Framework files, which you may (or may have not) seen yet in videos/images of it. (Please note that "Water" will most likely be replaced with "Thirst" before release.)
How many of these features are still relevant? I've been unable to rob fuel stations,maybe at the wrong ones,And i don't see small banks anymore,were these features removed in the trial & Error of trying to figure out the crashes or where they just removed in general?
Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but the rules and features page gives very outdated information, and it would be a good idea to update them considering a person cannot legitimately be accused of breaking a rule if the rule is not actually written there. This is especially iffy as the page clearly states "this is the only warning you will receive here". Also it creates misconception, such as the benefits of donating money to the servers (see boring wall of text below). http://www.altislife.co.uk/rules (last updated 06/04/2015) Rule 3A VDM: When it says "using the following vehicles" is permitted and gives three examples (the ifrit, strider, and hunter) the section says "etc" and "eg" which heavily implies that these are not the only vehicles allowed. The term "for example" is not meant to be used to cover 100% of a topic, and is utilized to state a brief example, not an exhaustive list. This means that, by the rule's own wording, that there are more than three vehicles which are allowed to be used to ram other armoured vehicles, but these are not mentioned by name. Rule 3D Microphone only server: The police application page asks the applicant if they have a working microphone, however as "this is the only warning you will receive here" it seems quite redundant to have this on their page as the police force should be expected to know the rules better than the average person. Rule 10A even states "All police must be on mic and on Teamspeak, If your mic is not working or you're not on teamspeak then do not connect to the server" I am guessing that the reason for the "do you have a working mic?" question is so people can apply for the police force and then get a working device in the mean time. Is this the case or are people that say "no" to the question immediately denied? Rule 7 Bounty hunters: Example, a BH goes to a hobo and asks him to find someone by a certain name. The hobo sees the name above someone's head and informs the BH of that person. Whilst the BH has not broken metagame himself as "hire a civilian friend or recruit some hobos to approach people and ask their name" is permitted, the hobo did break it and thus the hunter is using illegitimate methods to achieve his goal. In this case is the bounty hunter allowed to restrain and claim the bounty on the criminal? Rule 12 UNMC: They have been removed from the game but their rules section is still there. I am aware they are due for a return but there is no timeframe for when that is, so that means there are currently bannable offenses concerning a faction which doesn't exist. Rule 12B UNMC clothing: People are currently auctioning the clothing on the server, and also wearing it ingame. The page says that these people should be banned. Rule 14 robbable NPCs: The NPCs have since been replaced by small podiums with signposts/computer monitors. 14C: "Police will come at speaking distance from the building (gas station/bank) and initiate roleplay." Are police still meant to speak before actively engaging in these events considering a podium is not a living hostage yet the rules say NPCs are still there? I recall, earlier in the year, that is wasn't allowed to steal police uniforms, but the berets are allowed to be taken and worn. Is this still the case as the page does not mention this. There is no rule on the page concerning people wearing the press vest. I have seen forum posts saying that having a weapon out is not allowed whilst in those clothes, and it would be good to have clarity on this issue. ........................................................................................................................................................................................................ http://www.altislife.co.uk/topic/8111-altis-life-features/ (last updated 18/06/2015) HM Prison Service: Prison guard Brad Bellck is still listed as the wood plank quest-giver, but he has been removed from the game and replaced with the signpost/podium. Robbable local banks and fuel stations: The picture here shows a gas station cashier being held hostage, yet these characters have been removed from the game. I mention spelling/grammar during this section (yes I know #grammarnazi). I'm fully aware I'm super nitpicky on this and that it doesn't affect anyone in-game. I mention this just because it is present (you can tell how busy I am today). Housing: "As you know (most pointless term in all works of writing, if a person does know then they don't need reminding that they do know) we have a server persistence system, and the housing is included with this! you (y should be capitalised) can goto (should be go to) the market and buy storage boxes so you can store items like weapons, clothing etc and also by pressing T (punctuation/words missing) things like food,(need a space)drink... drugs! But be careful.... people can buy bolt cutters to break into your property and if the police think something is up or something illegal is being stored they can raid property's (the ' needs to be removed)" Robbable local banks and fuel stations: "Armed robbery is a crime that is on the increase in Altis, (full stop, not comma, due to the capitalized Y) You are able to rob the local banks (RBA - Royal bank of altis) (Altis should be capitalized as it is a name) and fuel stations dotted around the map. Most servers just have the central bank, we have taken this one step further allowing mini robberys around the map, (again with capitalization and commas) Once you trigger the robbery the shop assistant puts his hands on his head (no he doesn't as he isn't in the game anymore) and the alarm starts sounding. The police may attend and this could lead to you being trapped or a intense standoff/shootout, the choice how you roleplay this one is upto (should be two seperate words) you!" This sort of stuff pops up all over the features page (skydiving/fully custom spray-shop descriptions being two more examples of incorrect spelling/grammar mistakes) and could do with a revision just so it appears more professional. /end of spellcheck "Here are Some of our amazing features (Scroll below for more detail)" "VIP Spawn point and VIP Club that is in-line with Arma 3 EULA agreement meaning that all players have access to the same content on the server, VIP’s just get a reduction in price": The donator spawn point, and donator only discount system, has been removed. Instead there is now a monthly goal (of around £500) and when this is reached there is a server-wide discount available for all players for a limited time (beginning the 1st of the next month). "Robbable local banks and fuel stations where the employee puts their hands on there head while the alarm sounds!": They have been removed from the game. Thank you to anyone who has reached this point. As thanks here is a picture of homemade coconut:
