    Development Log #04 - Some exciting news & we're looking for developers!

    By Tim,

    Hi there!

    We have some exciting news, we are now an approved server on the Bohemia Interactive Monetization Program server list.
    Link to the list: https://www.bistudio.com/monetization/approved/arma3

    Right now I myself am working hard on a player panel called MyMalden (screenshot below). As I discussed in my earlier topic we will be implementing a business system. We will be starting off by just having it web based (but you will earn in-game money from it). From there on we will roll out the in-game version. It will mobile & web compatible.

    8UViQ1aKSU_Xb_SNdJftWg.pngRight now what you will be able to do through the MyMalden panel is:

    Some functions will only be accessible when you are not logged in to the server.

    • Inventory (Items)
      • View inventory
      • Transfer to business
      • Sell
      • Delete
    • Business (max 1 business per player)
      • Register a company
      • Hire employees
      • Create ranks with names
      • Set pay for each rank
    • Licensing
      • Buy Licenses Online
      • View your licenses
    • Statistics
      • View your own and others their statistics.

    If you have any suggestions of functions which you would like to see added to the player panel do not hesitate to let us know in the comments below!

    We Need Your Opinions!

    By Tim,


    Me and the other developers have been working  on mostly textutes and map design but we've been debating about the server economy. As most of the people reading this will be players who have played life servers before you might know that the economy usually is a little bit messed up. We have currently have it set up like any other life server but we would  like your opinion

    Please vote in the poll!

    I would  like to add that this does not mean it will take you a 100 times longer to get enough money for a new car. But the prices will just be more realistic. This will allow us to create our stock market system more easily since we dont have to have unrealistiv values.


    Thank you!


    Development Log #03 - A little bit of everything

    By Tim,

    Hi There!

    Forums stuff

    I would like to start off by saying this is going to be a shorter news post than the last one and it will include stuff about the forum and donation rewards as-well (a little bit of everything)!

    While we are working on the server we also work on the forum in the mean-while. I have created a release notes page, here you can see what was changed in every update of our server.
    In the future when the server is opened you will also be able to see upcoming versions which have not yet been released. This way you can prepare on what is coming and give feedback on it before we even release the update!

    Link to release notes page: http://forum.maldenlife.eu/release-notes/

    Server stuff

    So back to game stuff! We are also working on our Business functionality in-game and on our website. This will mean apart from being able to create a gang you will be able to create an company/business. For the people who want to take the legal (or illegal) way of earning money instead of creating a gang there will be loads of possibilities. (PS: You can be both in a gang and a company at the same time)
    It will be a quite complicated system with the Chamber of Commerce, stock markets, manufacturing and more! So I will dedicated another development log completely to this topic to go more in-depth about it. I will already tell you that to register a business we will be going to ask for a small donation in order to get donations to keep our services running. 


    Development Log #02 - Rebuilding Malden

    By Tim,



    Even though the previous 'log' was posted this morning I could not wait to show you guys this so decided to post it today instead of tomorrow. 

    I will start off by giving you guys an introduction to the island of Malden. The island of Malden will be a part of the Kingdom of The Netherlands. Technically it is a province but it has it's own native language which will be English. Over the years Malden has had some civil wars but it is getting back on it's feet now and the Kingdom of The Netherlands has agreed to subsidize rebuilding parts of the island to improve infrastructure and offer new housing opportunities to Malden its residents.  

    Construction 1During the rebuild of Malden some extra delivery points will be added to drop off construction materials to all the building sites.

    Whenever we start reconstruction a city all citizens will be notified, this does mean that at some point roads might be partially or fully closed. This could also mean your favourite grocery store, market, or even gun store might be temporarily moved. Sorry for that inconvenience in advance!






    Residents of Malden are allowed to enter construction sites to view their future house or suggest new shops in their area of living as long as they wear a hard hat and high visibility jacket, there will be trucks driving back and forth to supply the construction materials so please beware of them!







    Construction 2Last but not least, citizens are always free to demonstrate against construction projects or ask for a city to have reconstruction done. You can do so by navigating to the Government forums and going to the "Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment" sub-forums.
