Coconut's dynamic campaign EXPERT and NORMAL

Recommended Posts

I've already stated on the discord but it's worth posting here that if I fly online I fly on coconut, i've thoroughly enjoyed your missions and i'll miss the server when it's gone.

thank you Coconut ;)

Thanks for all the good times you have provided.  It's too bad this will be mothballed, wish someone could pick it up.

This is a real drag. My squad has been looking for something to do on Friday nights and we finally found our match on the Coconut server as it fit our needs and desires.

 Now I guess it will be back to trying to decide what we all want to play and what all of us can play for what ever random reason. This was something we were all able to play and wanted to. I wish we would have found the server earlier.

 Is there no possible way the server can be preserved one way or another? I'm sure many of us would be willing to donate if that's the obstacle. If it's time, would handing over the reins to someone else to keep her going possible? Or is there too much technical knowledge needed to be learned for someone else to keep it up?

 

 It's is quite a masterpiece Coconut. We are very grateful for the time we have had to enjoy it. It will be a shame to see all that work just disappear while so may are still enjoying it.

The servers and the campaign will be taken definitively offline at the end of May.

 

No relation to the issues reported above, it's just that my interests have shifted.

 

That's a shame Coconut I've really enjoyed your server and even when it's "quiet" there's always the AI to fight.

 

Good luck with your new interests.

 

Cheers

The obstacle is not money, but thanks for asking. There are a few people who have at times used my software to run campaigns on their servers. The software will remain available, and someone else could run a server on a regular basis.

 

However, the problem is not so much in running the software, although that alone can be a challenge, but in maintaining it. When new features are added to the game (ju52, po2, tanks...), it's desirable to take advantage of them. When things in the mission editor or in DServer change, the software must be updated if it stops working. Then there is the somewhat fragile interface between DServer and the campaign. That's the part I've lost motivation to take care of, and it's also the part where my somewhat unique competence and commitment are required.

 

Basically, if anyone has the competence and commitment to develop and run a dynamic campaign, chances are they are already doing it with their own software. See for instance TAW, the Finnish Virtual Pilots, or Pat's campaign generator.

 

Anyway, there's a good chance I'll be back, but for now, I need an extended break.

Thanks for all the hard work you put into the Coconut Servers and especially your assistance with getting ours set up and running.

Maintaining them is a bit of a chore, especially when updates come fairly often, but it's worth the effort to have this great sim available.

Good luck in your endeavors and we hope to see you return sometime soon.

Thanks for your efforts to-date in setting up your campaign framework and providing your campaigns for use by the community.  Good luck in your new interests, and enjoy the break!

Many thanks for all the good time you allowed for all of us.

 

During two months I invested all my free time in the campaign and it was so pleasant !!!

 

I can imagine the hard work it needs to manage such system.

 

have a nice  break and comes back when the "fire" will be there again !!!😉

Your server is by far the best but......18 disconnects this month is just too much. I have been in touch with the Support team and they suggest that it is due to your settings. I know there is nothing wrong with my computer and there is nothing wrong with my internet. I have also installed new internet adaptors. It's so frustrating....I don't have this problem on any other server. When I do manage to complete a mission, I don't get any score because of penalties
