AK 907 Clan Server

All posts tagged AK 907 Clan Server

Happy Tuesday everyone, I hope today is a great day for you! I want to start off with some recent updates and new information regarding the AK 907 clan and go over the sign-up for the challenge for this week’s Weekly Clan Event.

AK 907 Updates

The AK clan has been looking to grow members since we started, we have been looking to get our own server system since we started, and we have been looking to make the AK907 clan better in any way we can. We are VERY close to getting our own Battlefield 3 server (this week or next), we already have our own CS:S server, and we have the option of building one of about 68 different game servers from GameTracker now as well (I built a BF2142 (RANKED) server last night, but will probably take it down and replace it with something else soon), and we have our own TeamSpeak 3 server along with a web host to call home (Thanks Bobby!)

There are going to be some changes in the future to how the clan is organized and how decisions are made, and I want everyone to rest assured that I personally am going to try to keep things as RELAXED as possible while ensuring the AK 907 Clan and it’s members are protected. Some ideas I’ve been tossing around:

  • The addition of a cabinet/board members to make decisions for the clan (including decisions about rules, enforcement, treasury, and any major decision affecting the clan)
  • The addition of a weekly or monthly “Clan Meeting” – This would probably be a Sunday Night thing and it would be a quick 15-60 minute discussion about the clan, members, servers, or anything else AK 907 Clan related
  • Using the forums more! For voting (possibly voting for the weekly clan event challenges, among other items), structure, and discussions

I have a meeting with the leader of another clan tonight to discuss successes and failures and what we can do to become a bigger clan. I hope to have our Battlefield 3 server purchased sometime after that meeting and will fill everyone in the SECOND that purchase has been made (stay tuned – it’s coming this week guys)!

The CS:S server was down for about a week, but is now back online and the Mani Admin Mod is working

Weekly Clan Event

This week, there will be a registration required to win the Weekly Clan Event! You *MUST* sign up on the forums (here: http://forums.ak907.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=144) and join us on TeamSpeak to be eligible to win the prize of a week of fame on the home page. You do NOT have to be an AK 907 Clan Member to sign up for, and win, this challenge! All you must do is sign up and join us on TeamSpeak!

 

Clan AK 907

This weeks challenge is to obtain the highest Team Score in the given time frame.

I know that Dedaciai (now lvl 100 colonel!!!) may be unavailable for this weeks event, and Gr0wzy may also be unavailable, but just because a few members aren’t available doesn’t mean I’m not going to be there. I will be online ASAP Thursday and will remain online until after 11PM.

The challenge for this week is to have the HIGHEST TEAM SCORE between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM Central Time. Congrats to last week’s winner Gr0wzy, with his second win in a row! Since he’s won twice in a row, he is not eligible to win this week’s challenge.

That’s all I have for today, so I hope you have a great rest of the week and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday for our Weekly Clan Event.

See you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

Last Thursday we had another great 7 plus hours of gaming with various AK 907 clan members, all competing for a chance at fame… Only one person walked away with the best K/D Ratio, and the winner is announced below! Along with the winner announcement, we have a few items of interest for the clan servers and a call for help!

Thursday Night’s Winner

Thursday we got down on several different maps, some CQD and some Reggie CQ. After tallying up the scores, it wasn’t even close… Gr0wzy pwned all of us hard with his 1.80 K/D Ratio.The next closest was myself with 1.03, then Dedaciai with .99, and lastly KUCF with .91.

I wish that the stats tracking was working on our CS:S server because we actually hopped on it the last 2 hours of the night and SEVERAL older clan members joined us for some friendly rounds of GunGame… It was a blast and the K/D Ratio would have been nice to track, but the resources weren’t available to me to track CS:S players just yet (what can I say, CS:S ain’t no Battlelog…)

I just don’t know how he does it, but congrats to Gr0wzy and best of luck this Thursday when we will be competing for another week of fame on our home page, and of course bragging rights!

This week’s competition will be to obtain the highest SKILL between 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM, on Thursday. I think this week’s event is going to be just luck of the draw because if any of us can actually manipulate the SKILL stat, I would be very surprised… From what I hear, it’s quite complex and has almost nothing to do with Battlefield at all, but more the make and model of vehicle you drive (personally, IRL).

The winner of Thursday’s event is Gr0wzy!

CounterStrike:Source Server

The AK 907 Clan’s CounterStrike:Source Server has been running with no issues for a couple of weeks now. Last Thursday several clan members hopped on during the clan event, but I was unable to track their stats due to some problems with the stats-tracking plugins on the server. I am planning on installing several other mods onto the server (ScoutzKnivez (SK), JailBreak (JB), Knife Arena (KA), Surf, ETC), but there’s a few reasons why I haven’t started on those installations…

  1. What maps do I install?

    1. I know not all of the mods have a ton of maps, but it would be VERY helpful to know what YOU, the players, want from each of these mods
  2. What mods do I install and where do I get them?

    1. I’m assuming SK is a mod, but where do I download the installation from, and what is it a plugin for (SourceMod, MetaMod, etc)?
  3. ManiAdmin Menu.

    1. I will need to re-write the code for the ManiAdmin Menu for each of these plugins to work through the menu, AND I need to figure out how to create a command or script that will restore all of the default CS:S settings, so if we just want to play a clean round of CS:S on de_dust2 with all of the default spawn points, we can just select that option from the menu. This presents a problem to me because I don’t have time to write a new menu code just yet, but may have time in a month or three. On top of that, how do I restrict the menu so only the financially supporting members have pretty much unrestricted access, and what do I give the non-financially supporting members access to (by “restrict” I mean what should they have access to and what should they not have access to)? If you don’t support the clan, why should you have the ability to change maps, kick, change game modes, etc? These are all questions that I have that members of the clan need to come together and discuss. The forums would be an excellent spot to start this discussion, but the discussion hasn’t been started yet (check back SOON).

 

Battlefield 3 Server

The AK 907 Clan is still looking to purchase its own BF3 server and has made a little progress on the donation side (we’re up to just over $6!), but we’re not even half way to getting our own 16 man server, let alone a 48 man. I think that I will keep trying to promote donating to the clan for the next few months until I get enough extra cash to purchase a 48 man server for a month. Over that month we can gauge the public reaction to the server and see what kind of interest we get in the clan. If things are good and we obtain several new members over the month of having the server, maybe we can reduce the number of players on the server to a number that matches our monthly donations the next month and keep operating under such organization.

Do any of the clan members have any thoughts or ideas about the above? Please speak to GvnrRickPerry or Dedaciai so we can document your responses and make a decision to move forward based on clan input.

 

Closing

I would like to thank everyone for joining us for the AK907 Weekly Clan Event – it definitely makes for a fun time and gives us something to compete for!

   I would like to put forward the opportunity for clan members (meaning, anyone that is listed on the roster located HERE in the forums) to be more active in the Clan. If you have time, are interested in making the AK907 Clan better, and are willing to put the time in, send GvnrRickPerry an email, Facebook message, TS3 message, or hit me on TeamSpeak and let me know what you’re interested in doing. I will see what I need to do in order to get you the access you need to help the clan out. Things I have in mind are

  • Writing articles for the blog
  • Optimizing the SEO for the blog
  • Marketing the clan
  • Upkeep on the blog, forums, clan servers, or any other function (may require technical skills and Linux experience)
  • Posting daily on the Facebook or Google+ Clan page (daily posts make us look more active!)
  • Brainstorming to come up with ideas for the clan
  • Anything you can think of that would improve our clan image and make us more appealing to the public

Of course everyone on the clan roster is responsible for recruiting new members into the clan, so that was left out of the list above, but seriously; anything you can think of that would help the clan grow, we are open for.

That’s all for now. Until next time, see you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

Today’s blog post will feature a few Battlefield 3 Wallpapers that I have found on the net, an update on the CounterStrike:Source server and the mods and maps that are installed on it, as well as this weeks Clan Event.

Donate to our Cause!

Firstly, I want to mention that we have setup the clan to accept donations for the purchase/rental of our own AK907 Battlefield 3 server! Please donate to the cause via the donate button in the sidebar or below. The goal is to raise 65$ per month to pay for a 48 man – all maps – Battlefield 3 CQ and/or CQD server. All AK907 members will have permissions on the server, but those that donate to the cause will receive additional permissions on the server. The “basic” permissions are going to be VERY restricted, while the actual financially supporting members will have pretty much free reign on the server as far as permissions go.

Right now we are $6.19 closer to having a server, so please donate to the cause!

Battlefield 3 Wallpapers

I’ve been looking for various items to bring to our blog, but honestly the Battlefield 3 news is diminishing. I believe the devs are busy working on Battlefield 4 or End Game so they have slowed their posting on the Battlefield 3 blog, so much that their last post was in November!? In any case, I ran across some very nice Battlefield 3 wallpapers that I think you may enjoy. Click the image below to be taken to the BF3 Blog where the wallpaper can be downloaded.

AK907 Clan CountersStrike:Source Server

As you all know I’ve been working on getting a CounterStrike:Source server up and running for us, and I think I finally have everything where I want it to be. I have installed several plugins, a ton of additional (very popular) maps, and the GunGame script. I’ve been testing it out, refining things, over the past week and I think it’s finally at a place where I can be hands-off and just kind of let things run. For everyone’s information, the following plugins are installed:

  • Mani Admin Plugin
  • MetaMod:Source
  • SourceMod
  • SourceHook
  • Mattie’s EventScripts
  • CS:S Tools
  • SDK Tools
  • GunGame:SourceMod

On top of the above mentioned plugins, I have installed the following map list onto the CS:S Server:

Not all of the maps above are in the Mani Admin Plugin, but I have tried to select the most popular maps and ensure they are in the plugin so you can change the maps via the plugin when you desire to do so.

Lastly, I will need everyone’s SteamID so I can add you to the  Mani Admin Plugin so you can administrate the server. Please get this to me as soon as possible so I can finish setting up the CS:S Server and call it complete. Once I have a small group of SteamID’s and I’ve updated the clients list on the Mani Admin Plugin, I will post a brief overview of the Mani Admin Plugin and how to use it. It’s the simplest administration plugin out there and way less complicated than RCON or many other server management tools. If you do not know your SteamID, please go here: http://steamidfinder.com/ and fill out the requested information so you can obtain this ID. You can leave your SteamID in the comments or in the forums as I have posted a new post in the AK907 Members section regarding this. If you do not have access to the forums, just let me know and I can get you set up.

This Week’s Clan Event

This Thursday we will be having another Clan Event. All are welcome to participate and compete for the prize of a week of fame on the home page and bragging rights. This week the challenge is to obtain the BEST K/D RATIO between the hours of 4:00 PM and 11:00 PM this Thursday. I will go through all of the Battle Reports once 11:00 PM rolls around and calculate the best K/D average for all participants who have joined our TeamSpeak server. You MUST join the Clan TeamSpeak server to be eligible to win this event!!!

I’m thinking maybe this Thursday we could hop on the CounterStrike:Source server for a few rounds as well. There are bots on the server, and I actually had a few random’s hop on with me last night while I was testing it out. We had at least 5 rounds of fun before I had to call it a night!

That’s all I have for today, but I look forward to seeing you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!
