How To: Pub Server- Map Changes & Enabling Fortify
« on: March 17, 2021, 12:11:38 PM »
In light of near daily questions on these two items, I thought I would post this here.

1. Switching the Map/Mission.
    Currently, the map/mission defaults to al-Rayak, which we have played ad naseum.  (SFC Trooper moved us on to Malden last night.)  If you're the first to get to the server and find yourself back on al-Rayak, do the following.
    -load into the game -- you will start on respawn island  :-\  just respawn again
    -on the map screen, vote yourself as admin (upper left screen, under the "players" section)
              (if you're not alone, others may need to also vote for you to get admin)
    -once in the game, toggle to the Command Channel using the period & comma keys
    -hit the forward slash button "/" to enter text
    -type "#missions" (without the quotes) and hit enter
    -hit continue at the next screen
    -select "Malden 2035" on the left list, and the "506th Liberation Malden" template on the right list
    -make sure "custom" is selected on the left most side (Server Difficulty Preset)
    -hit OK to continue, and Malden should load up where we left off
 
   Note:  It appears only some people are able to get Zeus on the Malden map.  I put in an issue ticket to ask the S4 to look at it.

2. Getting Fortify Activated. 
    -bring up your map screen, vote yourself as admin (upper left screen, under the "players" section)
    -once in the game, toggle to the Command Channel using the period & comma keys
    -hit the forward slash button "/" to enter text
    -type "#ace-fortify on" (without the quotes) and hit enter
    -type "#ace-fortify west big" (without the quotes) and hit enter
          (type "medium" instead of big on other maps; you need big here to get sandbags)

    Notes:
          -on other maps, you only have to do this once; on Malden, each time map is brought up
          -GRAD trenches are not available on the public server, so you can ditch the e-tool
                (sandbags have limited protection: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gUXGdp5s2_TAdmzfZvtl0tQbOSuPc1sD/view?usp=sharing)
          -please clean-up your sandbags if the tactical situation permits (ace interact, remove object)
               (helps keep the object count down)

          -in official 506th missions, use sandbags only in urban areas unless it's a dire emergency; use trenches in non-urban terrain
