  2. Hi! As most of you might've noticed we haven't posted a development log in a while. This being cause the development team and staff members were busy working on the server. This is why we have a new tester on our team,@BlobMatrix. He will be testing out new features in-game and will eventually be able to answer questions about the server that you have while it is in development. Back to the development... As you can see in the title we are going to postpone our release. This has several reasons which I will list below. I understand this might be frustrating to people who want to start playing As you can see on our Release Notes page we are actually working on a lot of things in the background. Bugs Blob has found some gameplay breaking bugs in the latest version of our mission file which has to be fixed. Unique Functions We are still working on our unique functions/scripts which we would like you guys to have access to right away. We don't want to offer the standard Life server experience a lot of other servers have. Faction Leaders As you can see we don't have a lot of user activity pre-launch. We do not spend much time advertising our server. But we do need people to register on our forums so we can start looking for people who can lead our factions (Police, Medics etc) MyMalden we are still working on the player panel but it is close to being finished this is also part of the unique experience we want to offer. The new aimed release date will be next Friday - December 8th. So as listed above we are looking for people who can lead factions. Experience is a must. If you are interested please contact me (Tim) or Kasper on our TeamSpeak server. We are also looking for staff members: Administrators, Moderators, Developers & Helpers! If you are interested please contact me (Tim) or Kasper on our TeamSpeak server. Sorry again for the delay and the not very long post about it. Back to working on the server now.
  3. Server: Changelog

    We have released a new mission file version. Please view all the changes on the following page: http://maldenlife.eu/release-notes/
  4. 0.2

    This is the new mission file version. We have fixed bugs that our testers reported to us but also added new content.

  5. Greetings, I would love to be a beta tester for this up-and-coming Malden Life server. Cheers, BlobMatrix
  6. Introduction - Robin

    Hello everyone i am Robin and im 16 years old, i live in the netherlands and i'm really excited to see this community grow and even help you guys out! i have had a lot of hours into arma 3 (1156 hours to be exact) so i know alot about this game, nothing really more to say. hopefully we will see each other in the server!
  7. Dear members of our community, With this post, I would like to announce the initial release date for our server. This being the 1st of December. As I am typing this our team is working hard on new features. Some of them being: Stock trading system Stocks can be bought from companies set-up by real players in-game, yet there will also be some fictional companies. Stocks will go up and down in value depending on the company's in-game condition, more on this soon. Chamber of commerce system (To register companies) Realistic economy Illegal high calibre weapon import option (more on this soon) These are features that will make our community unique and we hope to divide ourselves from mainstream life communities. Another decision we've made is that we will not allow any armoured vehicle on our server, the reason being they are too overpowered and create an unrealistic roleplay environment. I hope to have informed you a bit more about our progress and ideas. Kind regards, Kasper
  8. Hi there! As some of you who are on our discord might have already seen, we now have a TeamSpeak server! IP: ts.maldenlife.eu / As we are coming closer to our beta release we would like to test all the functions in our server. If you are interested in being a tester please reply to this post or visit our TeamSpeak and message me or Max. Thats all for now!
  9. 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. Right 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! Staff Recruitment! We're currently looking into expanding our staff team. Specifically, we're looking for: Developers - http://forum.maldenlife.eu/forms/3-developer-application/ Security Advisor (Server/Networking) http://forum.maldenlife.eu/forms/4-security-advisor-application/ Moderators If you feel like you can help us in any of these positions please check the forms in the navigation bar. In the email please list what your experience is and why you think you would be an addition to our team. Next post sneak peak:
  10. Hi! 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!
  11. 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.

You are NOT allowed to take or hold a player hostage inside the greenzones or in their immidiate area.

    Hi there, My name is Ruben, you’ll know me as Mako most of the time. I’m a 21 years old student from The Netherlands. I’ve started studying law enforcement which I really enjoyed back in those days. After I passed I decided to change course because of my upcoming interests in Web application/design programming. So I am in my final year right now and still enjoying it at the moment. But enough about school now... I’ve been on plenty of other life servers and even served for a long time as a cop which I enjoyed the most while being on a life server. Ofcourse I’ve brought a lot of experience with me which I’m greatfull for. I’ll keep it short for now but I can’t wait to start on this new creative and great potentially Malden Life server! See you guys in town... Regards, Mako
