BC28 Arma Server and Teamspeak

Introduction

In order for us to train, explore and work as a unit, BC28 is providing a dedicated BC28 and TeamSpeak server for clan usage. Both are needed for us to host games and run simulations, missions and training sessions.. The server hosts the the loaded scenario and should be more than capable of accepting up to 25 members and AI but I must stress we are testing this and we will undoubtedly run into a few issues along the way.

Goals

The goal for us would be to first and foremost have fun, works as a team, collaborate with what individuals want to do and build scenarios to help us achieve this. We have Raz onboard building complex scenarios for BC28 as we speak (which you can find details for - when available - here).

I would feel privileged to roll out in a BRAVO company unit on other MilSim servers (Like JRAS - details can be found here) and be a supporting role in achieveing mission objectives. Be it as a ground force, SF recon unit, armoured support or Sniper teams.

What you need to know

First and foremost apply to ARMA 3 Unit BC28, Once accepted you will have a unit show up on your launcher. Check under Server List and the BC28 Server should show up. But, before you can join you will need to install some MODS. A full list of MODs required to join the server can be found and downloaded via our BC28 Collection on the steam workshop, or you can find each MOD below:

Below is a brief summary of what each MOD does, the aim is to not go too MilSim at this stage however keep an eye on this page for updates!

TeamSpeak Downloads

Once installed you will need to do the following manual install to get the task force radio plugin to work:

Locate the @task_force_radio mod location, default location in !Workshop folder (it’s a hidden folder) C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@task_force_radio Inside the @task_force_radio mod will be a teamspeak folder with 2 installers, run both of them to install the needed TS plugins that enables the TFR mod to function with Arma 3.

Restart TS if needed

To connect to the BC28 Server, select 'CONNECT' and put the following address into the address window:

ts.bc28.club

This will then connect you to the BC28 server and connect to the game.
