Specific definitions of ARMA 3/ACV - Public Server Rules
The following is a numbered list of all server rules that are in accordance to the list of section 2. Each rule will have a subsection explaining the intentions of the rule and specific cases of the rule.
1. No fratricide
- Fratricide, n, Latin for brother killing, and is used to describe 'friendly fire', or commonly called 'TKing' or 'Team Killing';
- This means the purposeful or accidental killing of another player;
- Spirit of the rule - This rule is a pretty run-of-the-mill for team-based FPS ( First Person Shooter ) games. It's universally considered in bad taste and bad form. It makes the game not fun to be shot in the back. The idea is to have fun, not have to worry about a chaotic free for all.
2. No destruction of friendly equipment.
- This includes purposeful and accidental occurrences;
- This includes all actions other than enemy fire: crashing, using explosives and shooting;
- Spirit of the rule - This rule is similar in spirit to the first rule. There's already enough concern with the enemy trying to wax that armor or aviation asset.
3. All pilots and Artillery must be on TeamSpeak 3.
- This means the pilot of any aircraft, Artillery or UAV operators;
- TeamSpeak 3 meaning 7th Cavalry's TeamSpeak 3 server;
- They must also have a working mic, and be willing to co-ordinate over TeamSpeak while flying;
- Spirit of the rule - This rule is for the coordination of the aircraft in the air, as most of the aircraft need to be called in for fire support, which means they need to hear the call. Other reasons include coordination of the assets. This is for airspace control of the airfield. Nothing is more bothersome than a head-on collision of taking off aircraft clogging up the runway for other possible flights.
4. All Aircraft / Artillery support must be on call.
- Attack Aircraft are not to engage the enemy on their own accord;
- Enemy air assets and enemy AA are the only exceptions to this rule. they are allowed to be engaged to make way for safe transport to the AO for Friendly Troops;
- All other targets, how ever cannot be engaged unless called in;
- The attack aircraft are to maintain a safe holding area, pattern, or stay on base until called in to preserve the longevity of these craft;
- Artillery, including Mortars, must remain silent until called to fire;
- Caveat being that the aircraft is in immediate danger and needs to act against that danger;
- Spirit of the rule - Issues have come up before where the infantry elements would come into a town only to find burning heaps of stone and metal and be forced into a kind of bug-hunt for that last soldier who's running around and generally waste time. While the aircraft are indeed powerful and useful, they can be used in such a way to remove all of the fun of engagement from ground elements. To this end, aircraft and artillery may only engage when called on.
5. Weapons safe on base.
- Discharge or firing of any weapon on base is strictly prohibited;
- Spirit of the rule - This rule is meant to underline rules 1 and 2. There's no reason to fire on base.
6. No offensive language, sexual references, drug references, or racism of any kind will be tolerated.
- No swearing or use of any sexual references, including names;
- No Drug references including names;
- No racism of any kind. any racist remarks or names will result in an instant ban;
- No political or religious discussions or references including names;
- No disrespect towards other players or admins;
- No disrespect towards the 7th Cavalry Clan
- No disrespect towards the deceased
- No disrespectful or offensive abbreviations;
- No elitist attitude towards others or taunting;
- No mic spamming;
- No trolling;
- Spirit of the rule - The 7th Cavalry tries to make a fun environment for people of all ages. While our recruiting age may be 18, we do have younger members in our server and want to ensure that our servers are family friendly. If you wouldn't say it in-front of your own mother, you shouldn't be saying it here. If you feel that something is questionable, it is probably wrong.
7. No vehicles allowed on runways or landing pads unless it is a support vehicle being used for that purpose.
- Drive around runways and landing pads;
- No vehicles are allowed in the Spawn Area;
- Use the heavy Lift area for lifting, NOT the landing pad area
- Do not Leave any vehicles on runways or landing pads;
- Spirit of the rule - There should never be vehicle traffic on an active runway. it causes dangerous situations in which friendly air and ground assets can be damaged. the exception being a supply vehicle being used for that purpose, in which case the driver should make his intentions clear and be wary of all air assets taking off and landing and give them the right of way
8. Users in the TFR channel must be using TFR to speak in the channel.
- Not following this can have you warned, kicked, or even banned if the offense is repeated enough.
- If you have problems with TFR, address someone outside of the TFR channel so that they can assist you, or message someone inside the TFR channel so that they can come and help you outside of the channel.
- Spirit of the rule - If someone does not have TFR enabled, their voice will be broadcasted to the entire channel, disrupting communications and interrupting not only realism, but game flow. This rule ensures that "trolling" cannot become a regular action on the teamspeak server.
Arma 3/ACV- Training Server Rules
- The Training Server is first and foremost an area for 7th Cavalry members to practice skills that will be utilized in either operations or public spaces.
- There will always be a 7th Cavalry member responsible for the server.
- No public members.
Specific definitions of ARMA 3/ACV - Training Server Rules
1. The Training Server is first and foremost an area for 7th Cavalry members to practice skills that will be utilized in either operations or public spaces.
- Simply put: RTC > Unit Training > Fun-time.
- The above hierarchy of use shall always be observed, however, this does not mean that two groups can't be doing two things at once.
- Spirit of the rule - Simply as the hierarchy of use states, the training server is first and foremost the 7th Cavalry 1st Battalion training server; everything else comes secondary to this mission. RTC will always have priority of this server during the scheduled training times (check with RTC for currently scheduled bootcamps), as they are responsible for replenishing and growing the ranks of the 7th Cavalry, and they will not be hindered in this mission.
2. There will always be a 7th Cavalry member responsible for the server.
- Whenever the server is running, there will be at least one member that is in charge of the operations of all members in the server.
- Generally speaking, this member will be the operational admin or the training admin.
- This member is responsible for all conduct on the server.
- Spirit of the rule - Responsibility of use of 7th Cavalry assets always needs to fall on someone. As such, before entering the server as a group, either the ranking officer/NCO assumes this responsibility, or a pre-designated member of the group needs to be responsible (such as when there are NCOs running trainings for officers, etc).
3. No public members.
- No public members.
- Members of allied clans are allowed to attend events if first approved by the regimental commander.
- Spirit of the rule - Being as the servers are for 7th Cavalry members, as a matter of privilege for those of the yellow and black, public players are not welcome in these servers. Allied clans are allowed to visit the grounds if prior to the event the Regimental Commander provides written permission for them to attend.
