I am playing Zargabad there is a guy who is on the server, I am unable to communicate with him, as he has no teamspeak. I see him looking around the radio signs looking for information, but there isn't any.

Suggestion, put a lot more signs up around base, with the teamspeak address website and to follow the installation guide and any other helpful things to be easily found.

Update he has now left the server.

This feature might not be possible with acre 2 just yet but it's worth mentioning for future use.

The best thing to have would be that darkened screen we had in A2 days which told you what teamspeak and channel you needed to be on, which stayed there until you joined ts and the right radio channel.

I would advocate caution with signage. Too much information can often be bewildering and possibly cause a new player to be overwhelmed and disconnect. I know personally I have done this in the past when joining servers.

I am not sure if stuff like the Website address is needed. I mean, they managed to download the repo by following the link on the Website (presumably) so this information isn't unknown to them.

Just to put this into context, this is what im talking about



Michal got sorted after a while, but the other guy hasn't come back playing, he clearly wanted to play as a team hense him being with me, I did follow him when he drove out of base, but he had no clue on what to do.

Give people all the necessary information they need, you can even have the teamspeak and the website on the map, you will find most arma servers do it whether it be altis life or epoch. Its clearly not easy to set up as a new player, but once the information is there rather than it not be there is in my view better, with the evidence given, not saying anyone is disagreeing, im just pointing out as it stands its an issue.

Edit I put the website on the map so it didn't help, the info just needs to be there as clearly as possible.

most places have a teamspeak area on the homepage that shows players in the ts and also lets them join when they click it,,,maybe that would help just to make it a bit clearer and bigger....(add under timezones on homepage ?)

i just dont see how players can join after getting the repo/mods , or looking at the homepage , installation guide and they are not able to either get teamspeak or join ours ? hahahaha ...unless the links or info is incorrect ?

This is a good idea,it would be super helpful if you could make them as it isn't a very difficult thing to do. Maybe just a board with the team speak address on and the TWC logo, thank you.

Website isn't necessary. They would have had to been here in order to grab the repo. The chance for them to have the correct mods loaded, and stumble across the server just makes it highly improbable.

The old blackout message might be something I can work into the upcoming mod, it'll need a few thinks though. I can already think of some potential issues with it, I'll bore some guys on TS running over it with Cal.

I think making it clearer on the site like Jefro said is a better option. They have to come here, so might as well make it more prominent before they join the server, as opposed to a minecraft-esque server wall of signs added to each mission.

Additionally, they may be a bit more willing to join the teamspeak to ask technical questions during installation if they know it exists, prior to trying to connect, giving up and going elsewhere.
