Its happening, BigD Gaming has begun the migration to Discord.

Discord invite link: Discord | https://discord.me/bigdgaming

Teamspeak has been a core component of the BigD Community since the early days of 2007. It has taken all this time for a new and improving platform to overtake and enrich the community interactions that Teamspeak has in the past.

BigD Gaming Discord will be open as a community platform, anyone and everyone is welcome to join in as was the case of teamspeak. All of our Community & In-game admins will be required to be active on Discord - if you require admin assistance, especially for in-game matters, Discord will be the place to look.

What will happen to Teamspeak? Our server costs no money and will not be turned off in the short term. There are advantages of teamspeak for large scale community events and may be used for those purposes in the future. The number of channels in teamspeak will decease as the community moves to the Discord server.

G'day everyone!

Madhouse has tasked me with churning out a short advertisement for BigD as we move into Spring/Summer 2016.


WHAT DO YOU NEED?
Manpower. I need approximately 2-4 guys minimum per night to get the footage I want.

WHEN DO YOU NEED ME?

This shoot will be even more flexible than the 10 Years of Teamwork trailer. I will aim to be on BigD TS almost every night (2030 AEST onwards) from the 22nd August to 31st August. Each night, if we gather enough people, we will have a short sharp 30-45min session to gather footage.

WHAT GAMES?

We will play whatever the majority have (limited to what games I own :p ).
  • Project Reality
  • Squad
  • GTAV
  • Golf with Friends
  • Goldeneye Source (pending me to get off my **** and download)
  • Arma 3

HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?
If you have video footage that meets the following criteria, please PM me to reply to this thread:
  • 720p minimum
  • Preferably no water marks
  • No music
  • Availible on YouTube or other fileshare format for me to get
  • In your footage ill be looking for cool explosions, funny deaths, cool deaths, dumb deaths. Basically anything that would make you lol
Full credit will be given to you in the trailer.

PLEASE RSVP IN THIS THREAD INDICATING YOUR AVAILABILITY
Thanks
Joe

Alpha Version 7
Aug 7, 2016

[​IMG]

Hi Squaddies,
The day is finally here. Vehicles have arrived. It has been a long road for everyone on the development team, and especially you, the player. But finally one of our long awaited features is ready to roll out. Besides this, our programmers, production artists, mappers, testers and support staff have all been hard at work producing other content that will certainly make Version 7 one of our biggest and most ambitious patches yet.
Version 7 is now available via Steam and below is a full changelog.
For a summary of the major changes, please read our previous news post HERE.

Changelog


Gameplay


[​IMG]
Vehicles have been added to the game. Please familiarize yourself with what you will encounter on the battlefield.

[​IMG]
Starting map tickets have been increased across the board by about 150-200 tickets. This gives more room for a comeback and to accommodate vehicle losses.
Vehicles have a respawn timer from 3-6 minutes from the time that the vehicle is lost. Vehicles with weapons on them have a respawn timer of 6 minutes. Note that some vehicles on some maps have no respawns and are a one time use only.
Losing a vehicle will result in a potentially heavy ticket loss (4-30 tickets!!). Protect and repair your vehicles!
If a vehicle flips over, it will catch on fire to get it off the map. This will take a while, and your team will be without an asset for a while. Pay attention to where you drive....
Hi everyone we are happy to confirm the Project Reality EVENT
BigD Community vs Japan AUGUST 20th 21:00 AEST!

[​IMG]

The event will played on BASED as it is a neutral server ( Our pings will be similar to Japan from 120 - 180 ish)
This will be a signup event for those in the BigD community who wish to take part, so is limited to 50
The password will be given out 30 mins prior to the start of this event.
The maps are currently set as Saaremaa STD and Muttrah City STD

Depending on how the rounds play out we are hoping to get the 2 maps done with a round as each side: BluFor vs OpFor then switch OpFor vs BluFor

We can chat about the TEAM format we would like and we can pretty much apply it to both maps, obviously we can change it up as well:
