Coconut's dynamic campaign EXPERT and NORMAL

Recommended Posts

I've just been on the 'expert, powered by coconuts' server, and really enjoyed it.  Plenty of targets to bomb.  Is this server going too?  I remember the other coconuts servers, I enjoyed those too.

Assuming you are taking about the AKA expert server, powered by Coconuts.  Coconut was gracious enough to allow us (AKA) to use his campaign engine.  Other than the plane set/AI and other campaign adjustments as maintained by AKA_Scorp, I believe it’s using the latest version of the Coconuts engine logic for ground movement, etc.  No plans for AKA to stop the servers any time soon, assuming the campaign engine still works with newer versions of BoX.

You are right, that's exactly what I'm talking about.  I've been going on there by myself mainly, there were 5 at one stage tonight and I like the set up.  Thanks.

My friends and I have enjoyed this server very much! Thank you for your efforts, your work is greatly appreciated!

I tried to use the teamspeak channel a couple of times but always get an error message using the IP address that was posted on the website, which I pasted below, sorry for the dark text as its directly pasted from your website.  Is part of the IP missing? I have the password as its posted on the site as well, perhaps this is for aka team members only.  Thank you for any info you can provide!

Also I have tried to register to your forums but always get an error message.

I was able to register on your website however, but the forum info is different?

1.2.3.4:9987.

@Clyde it’s all down at the moment 

Thanks for the info Coconut.  I noticed the server (normal at least) has been down, seems like it's down on weekends but maybe down longer now? Cant get on website today.

I hope it's not down long, I really enjoy the server and the pilots I've met are great people!  Thanks for all the work you have done!

Hi Coconut!!  Sorry to bother you for clarification bu at 1st I thought you meant that the TS3 server only was down.  But sadly we haven;t seen the AKA Coconut Normal OR Expert server up for the past week or so.... I sure hope it will be coming back online at some near point in the future as we (a couple friends and I) have really enjoyed this server very much, as well as the website, which has also been down.  i was asked about whether if i knew if the whole IL2 AKA coconut server is down as well as website and I didnt know as I was not sure so  pardon me for coming back to clarify, Are the Normal and Expert il2 servers and the website all down for good? Or is it going to be a temporary thing?  Thank you for your patience!  I just had to know as we really came to enjoy this server and the people on it very much!  Thank you for all you have done for the community and thanks in advance for any info you can provide!

Hi Clyde,

 

Our server died.  It is run from the home of one of our members so it took down our forum, website and the game servers.  It is back up now and seems stable.  We are only running the expert server as the normal server was only there to give our members who were new to BoX an introduction to it.

 

Please enjoy.

Thanks AKA_Scorp!  I have noticed in the last few days the expert server was up again, I've been on it a time or two now.  Now that I'm gaining a little experience, the expert servers, or those that are at least icon's off, and maybe not full expert mode are getting  slowly easier to play on as we gain experience.   Thank you for the reply and update on the servers situation..  Sorry to hear it died! Glad it is back up!

Hello, brothers virtual pilots! I was pleased to learn that Coconut the server alive!  Unfortunately, "thinking" servers close to real life, almost left in our game. Previously, there were, as well, Finnish Virtual pilots, but now they have been influenced by fans of gaming primitivism, aka war thunder and gave up.I hope they add realism and raise their bar again! But, back to the Coconut server. I have question-where can be read pressing on today rules of the server? And, as in practice-more flying red or blue players, or when as? Thanks! )

Development on the next version of the campaign is ongoing. The objective is to make a system that is more robust, and requires less manual work to support new planes, new maps, new buildings. See the discord server channel #devel if you can help: https://discord.gg/JFTCfpd

There's no exact time plan, as this is a hobby project for me. Work is going forward still. It feels like I should about one month away from starting to run something but it's been like that for a while now :)

Team Coco will be waiting, this game has not been the same for many of us,  since your server went offline...

@coconut

What will be the max. player amount? Like previously 48? ...I think 84 or so is cancer when its full.

 

Moving supply truck convoys, tanks attacking positions, transfer flights, supply flights, arty positions, looking for trains, destroying enemy AF's and flying simple recon missions....

...bad weather, snow storms.... ALL THIS REALISM :)

 

Coco, I cant wait....but I have to....as many others.

Aaaaaahhhh - good times ahead of us.

 

 

PS:

The AKA Coconut Clone server, beside it has GPS on it, there are also no houses in the villages.... I loved to fly in your server over all this little houses 😄

Hello there!

 

I recently started flying on your server while trying out others and am finding it pretty interesting (and much more so since reading up on how it works 🤪).

 

The added complications of supply and the fluid nature of the longer term struggles really do add some necessary thought. My hats off to the designers(s)!

 

And a thanks can go out to MAGZ who, if I remember correctly, did a vid showcasing the server some time ago. He managed to stick the subject in my head and it helped lead me to your door.

 

Good hunting!

Hmm...I dont think the original Coconut is up yet again.

For all the effort the guys who are running the clone AKA Coconut server put in - the original was better imo (no GPS, buildings in villages, server in Europe ...)

Dude, you will be more than satisfied once the original is running again :)

Believe me

Oh! I stand corrected then!

 

The post by Burrito Grande..... wait, PISTOLA GRANDE led me to believe it was THE Coconut server. Missed the significance of "AKA". Turns out I have seen him on a few times.

 

If the original Coconut server is better, then I look forward to its return very much indeed! The complications of requiring a little thought before flying appeals greatly.

The AKA part confused me too a little.  I like that server because there's no hoops to jump thru like TAW and you don't get jumped by a pack of ding-dongs every 2 minutes like on Combat Box.  It's relaxing, the map isn't too big, lots of stuff to blow-up, bots, the occasional human victim , and stats on their website.  The server went down tonight and the website changed.  Looks like it's back to Finnish Virtualpilot server.  But the selection of aircraft on that server goes from early war to late war in a cycle and the cycles last way too long.  I'd like to start a server with some help and input so we can have a place where we can fly what we like when we want and how we want without hassles

In the new version I'm working on, I'm planning to do away with that. I have mixed feelings about that because there was some fun involved in picking a home base to work from, keep it supplied and spare your planes. Some extra anxiety (in a good way) when the enemy advanced towards to base, and a sting when it was captured, wiping out all your planes there.

But then there were also issues with that system: lots of failure points between the users, the game and my code that could lead to fewer planes than expected, or exploits to inflate one's number of planes easily... All this takes time from flying and improving the AI generals directing the war. So for now, that aspect is going away.

He did? If so I'd love to see his video!

 

Anyway, I know I've been silent, but be reassured that I'm still working on it. Currently developing the tools that allow me to better get a grasp of how the AI generals behave before I let them out in the wild. I've got something that seems to be working OK for bodenplatte, so hopefully I can put something up in a not too distant future.

Rumors are saying he is still working on it, only 2 working processes away from finishing it.

The pigeons from the roofs are further telling - this year, snow should not fall when its going up again.

But off course, I can not verify it and maybe I am not even right.

Still what I heared.

 

But yes, everybody is awaiting it like a thirsty man in the desert.

I've added a patrol group since, and now working on the escort.

Correction: It's almost ready to be deployed for testing, but it will be years before it's "finished" :)

For your tests, will you open it to public ?
