[Edit - Link removed for now. I think most of us got the practice in that we needed whilst the server was up and with it being Christmas shortly and TOR early access in a matter of days I haven't renewed this. Plus I think many of us have been busy playing other games like Skyrim too. If it's still possible to launch a server with 1-2 players in a month or two and some of you really want some more practice we could probably renew it then if needs be! ]
No need to waste useful jets on full servers when decent pilots could be making use of for the team instead, or waiting around for one to spawn along with several other jet campers. We have this server for the next month just for getting to grips with the jets and as such is just a 16/16 server. The only maps in rotation are the ones with air vehicles and the game will start with a minimum of 1 player.
There's an issue atm with password protecting it but I've sent a ticket about this already so hopefully that'll be sorted soon but atm it's still empty anyway. It's also in the SSX name as you can see and linking back here so even if not many people spot it amongst the thousands of other servers maybe it'll be a cheap bit of advertisement for our community and platoon whilst we're at it which can't be a bad thing. If some of us still want some practice in a months time I should be able to extend it for another couple of months at least until I have a TOR subscription to think about as well.
I guess we could play some clan matches on it as well if we want to test anything out but I was mainly thinking of the flying practice since 64/64 is the way to go at least for me hehe.
[Edit] - I've figured the password thing out. When the password is set it will be the first letters of our ideals in lowercase (Freedom, Equality, Honour, Integrity, Friendship).
