Oh and also Redux map and Esseker none Zombies are linked, so you can teleport between those 2 maps... Please keep in mind this is an early implementation of this feature. If you have questions or bugs please report them on the forums.

@  Arppa : (17 September 2017 - 04:04 PM)

very athmospheric map, good fps too

@  Joní : (17 September 2017 - 02:32 PM)

FYI The New Redux Map has replaced Cherno Isles none Zombies... Anything that was on that map has been transferred over in full to the new Redux Map, you will have lost nothing.

You answered your own question, there is no animals, no animals will be added due to performance.

Will we ever see some innovation in the way that mods go?

I know me and my clan GRINDED on CCG a while back but it quickly got boring, to which I assume the cause was the lack of content and/or missions. 

Im sure you guys have your reasons such as server performance, for example - but I want to ask the question anyway.

 

I can't find a server for the life of me that isn't:

1. Chernarus

2. Militarized style

3. Survival-esque "DayZ" style

4. Third Person

The only consistent server that I've seen so far was CCGs A3, as much as I want to come back to play on it, theres not really all that much to do.

Theres no longer any "Exile+" hardcore servers around, which is what im yearning for. (And I know many other people who share the same thoughts at mine, excluding the clan im situated in)

When a server type is "no longer around" there is a reason for it. And it generally comes down to popularity. And "hard core survival kick in the nuts" style servers just don't last long. Everyone wants one, then no one plays on it for long.

 

This happened back in A2 when everyone wanted CCG to do a hard core dayz vanilla server. So CCG did, and it was really popular... for like a week. I think it lasted maybe 3 months after that.

Its pretty apparent that those servers pretty much die instantly; when the content is based off difficulty - things don't meld well with longevity. 

 

Im not really looking for the "hard core survival kick in the nuts" servers. Im not looking for militarized servers either. And by hardcore, I meant first person. 

The "Frankie's tanoa" servers were pretty much packed fulll of players back when I played, and thats when it was fun because the constant PvP provided a content in terms of an arms race. Theres just something missing in my opinion, and I can't find a server that suits our tastes anywhere. We did find one server that we liked, but shut down because they didn't feel like dealing with updates anymore. 

 

Maybe theres not many people playing exile as there were before. As I look though the server browser at peak times, theres not a whole lot to choose from. Every other server I try and join it feels like another COD sequel: no innovation, no creativity, and certainly no originality. And the servers that I did like; ive run out of reasons to play on them.

 

Same shit different clan, but they somehow manage 60/60. 

~70% of servers are "miliuhturized"

~20% are "survival-esque"

and the other 10% falls into the CCG area, meaning somewhat vanilla exile with a few modifications on the side.

 

tldr: server selection is at an all time low, and I think im burnt on the "exile/epochArmA2" thing for a while.

The main problem like i said is always popularity. And the reality is people do not like to play first person. It drives away way more people than it takes in. The other issue is availability of mods. A perfect combo of mods might be A, B, C, and D. However B might not be allowed on monetized servers. So this cuts down how many servers are willing to use it right away. Some servers might use it ANYWAY (against the wishes of BI and the mod owner) but more well known communities will not even try that, nor should they.

 

Then maybe mod D is really cool... but has some quirks in it that can be abused. So this can be another server killer. I played on some servers that have had some really cool building mods, but it was able to be glitched and of course people did that.

 

And these are just some of the issues server hosts face. We can not afford to have servers that cater to a small minority of players. Our servers run through our donation system which means we need to also make sure we only use mods we have permission to use. Furthermore with as many servers as we have we need to make sure mods we have are as less abusable, and as stable, as we can. We also need to try to create as balance of a game play as we can (no tanks in exile).

 

This really paints us into a corner on some issues. If there are certain mods you think we should look at you can suggest them in the exile thread, but please do some research on them before hand. Many people suggest to us mods that can not be used on monetized servers.

 

Over all... you can always just play the game different. A buddy of mine when he got bored would get rid of all his stuff, start over again from scratch, and go build himself a small hunting shack somewhere. Or put restrictions on yourself... play in 1st person only, only use X type of guns, try to be a hero/bandit. Maybe use only guns and gear you search for, avoid the trader at all costs.

 

Or; start your own server. Best way to get all that you want in a game. Just be warned about the issues i mentioned above. Especially about monotization.
