I’d like to have a few flights with a buddy soon, and for that I’d like to host a tiny server.
My machine isn’t too strong to begin with, so I know I will have some severe limits on performance.
That’s OK though, since the aim is to have a mission featuring
- two (up to four in the future if I can get more of my buddies to join in) players
- one or two planes
- maybe a few very small scripts, no Moose or anything
- 20 or so ground objects for target practice
- maybe an AWACS and/or tanker for later shenanigans
Missions will - at least for now - be:
- basic flight training in a two-seater (L-39 for sure, C-101 when it is released on Steam)
- formation flying
- basic air combat training, two planes
- once the F-14 is released we will do the same in the Tomcat. But until then I will have a new PC hopefully.
My connection should be OK, I have 50mbit/s download, 10mbit/s upload. Not stellar but should do for two persons I guess.
Now, I guess I will have to forward port 10308 in my router?
Anything else I should do?
I have read and watched a few tutorials on that and that seemed to be it, but those were created some years ago.
And then of course, before I use the server with my buddy I’d like to test it with someone from the community. He is new to DCS so I want it to go relatively smoothly.
It would be a few minutes of work, basically join up, hop into the L-39 and fly around a tiny bit, to the target area, to see if there are severe problems.
So that’s my request.
If you would be ready to help me, please post the time slots when you could be online in the next few days, times in UTC please.
I am in Germany so everyone in Europe should have a nice ping I guess, but since I have flown with y’all on US-based servers multiple times I think you should be able to help from there as well.
I have vacation until the 6th of January, so until then I am quite flexible with time slots.
After that it will be mainly 1800 UTC until 2300 UTC.
