I've made a poll here:
strawpoll.me/5665049

POLL CLOSED - Australia it is. (Working on it.)

I'm a bit sick of Altis so I'm considering a switch.
Choices are currently:
  • Stick with Altis
  • Chernarus
  • Esseker
  • Bornholm
  • Australia
MAKE SURE TO VOTE VIA THE LINK ABOVE!

I won't switch the map instantly without any notice.
There's a fair of work for me to do (spawn zones have to be defined, trader cities have to be made, safezones have to be implemented etc.)

You will need to download the AiA terrain pack (use Armaholic or A3Launcher) as well as the map chosen by the poll. (See A3Launcher for sizes etc.)

You will lose your base etc but I'll give familiar players a starter kit.

Thoughts?

Marvel at perfection, for it is fleeting.

And doom upon all the world.

I'm about 80% done.

(Not the best screenshot, but I'd damn tired and want to go to bed.)
Goddamn Australia updated yesterday so I'll have to re-upload it (unless Hyper doesn't mind - it's considerably smaller than the terrain pack @ 1.40gig).

Tomorrow I'll be adding in the remaining mods, altering the default loadout (gonna need a bigger gun), increasing loot spawn probability and making sure all the new trees in Auz produce wood when chopped.

Current distractions:
Cousin had 18 days off work so we played an ass-load of Destiny.
Cinema tomorrow morning to treat myself.
Star Wars Battlefront beta.
The return of The Walking Dead.

Exile Australia server is now up!
The framerate isn't as high as I'd like (might be my ageing 2500k CPU) but it's playable. There's a few small errors but I'm filtering through and fixing them as I find them.

The framerate issue comes down to these things:
1 - The Terrain pack is the high quality version.
2 - The AI mods bog the CPU down a little when they're starting/clearing up their missions, dynamic spawns and invasions.
3 - The box the server is hosted on has never been particularly great.

Possible solutions:
1 - Use the low-resolution terrain pack and endure slightly crappy looking textures.
2 - Choose an AI mod to remove. See if it makes a difference.
3 - Pester GTX for a box-switch or use a dedicated box which is more expensive. (£49 a month for entry level, but better performance, dedicated UK boxes. I'll shop around, if you know of a cheaper/better solution or someone with a decent box... let me know.) Obviously donations would help.

For now, I guess we'll work through those in order.
