Nah, AFAIK we will still use the official servers for normal flight, impromptu dogfighting, and dinking around. We will just use Richard's for ops and stuff. Or if we feel the need. Or whatever.

That's not my intention.

I see this server as being useful for planned OPS where we need to control visibility of map and the MP range (as the 100nm range on the standard servers is a bit limiting). Also with the awacs changes it should hopefully improve the realism. We will also have control over the logging and tracking.

At the moment I'm currently still developing some server changes so the server is up. It's likely to be offline after the weekend until the next planned operation.

Hey Snowy and JMav:

No, the intent of the private server is not to replace the regular multiplayer servers. In fact, the intent is to only use the private servers for big, organized events. We still need to have our smaller events (the ones that don't really count) on the main servers so that we can be visible. In fact, once Richard and company are comfortable with the server (and no longer need testing), we may even close it except for times that we have a competition, just to be sure we keep visibility (our developers can tell us if/when this should be the case).

We are a community, and as such, need to have new folks exposed so that we can have new blood and new ideas. We won't be leaving the main servers unless they make us. :)

Server is now offline as I've finished what I wanted to do. It will be back online for the next major event.

I know that a "thank you" doesn't measure when considering how great this contribution is, but let me say it anyway. This is a huge step forward for us, so...

THANK YOU!!!!

Thanks for the appreciation - but we don't use this server anymore; the main thing my code changes had was support for Awacs and teams.

@pinto - maybe we should revisit how we do this and whether or not we should look at supporting some version of this in the future.
