    Welcome to Project Life!

    Thank you for bringing your citizenship to our glorious island!
    To get into the game and start playing, follow the steps listed below!


    If you have done this before, here is the information needed to quick connect:

    Arma3Sync: ftp://142.44.142.19/.a3s/autoconfig
    Teamspeak Adress: ts3.arma3projectlife.com
    Server IP: 142.44.142.19
    Server Port: 2302
    Server Password: update1.1

    Step 1: Buy Beta Access
    Access to our server can be purchased here.

    Why do I have to pay to play on the server?
    A3PL is a unique ARMA3 mod which means we do not use standard models, scripts, or textures.
    Everything you see in A3PL has been custom designed for you, our players. Game design is a very costly endeavor, not just for assets, but also for server costs, maintenance, DDOS protection, Teamspeak3, and staff.

    In order to bring you the best experience and the quality you expect from A3PL, we must charge a fee for access*.
    *Monetization is approved by Bohemia Interactive.

    Step 2: Get Your Tags
    Connect to our Teamspeak automatically by clicking here, or if you wish to do it manually you may enter our Teamspeak address: ts3.arma3projectlife.com. Then go to Requesting Support to receive your tags and to allow us to introduce you to your new community!

    Step 3: Download Arma 3 Sync
    If you haven't already, download Arma 3 Sync here (The download link will say Click to Download at the very bottom in brown lettering). This is needed to automatically put the mods you download into the appropriate place in your Arma 3 files.


    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Download Our Mods
    *I will be including pictures from here on since many people get confused by these next steps.*

    First, open Arma 3 Sync. Click on the tab that says "Repositories", then click on the blue plus(+) sign.

    [​IMG]

    A box will pop up. Type the auto-config url into the correct spot, and then click import. It will say connection succcessful and then you may click OK. The auto-config url is: ftp://142.44.142.19/.a3s/autoconfig

    [​IMG]

    Now you will see Project Life on the repositories list. Any time there is new content to download, it will say UPDATED in red, which means our mod has been updated. To download the mod or "update the sync" as you will hear it called on the server, click on the white square icon with the blue arrow pointing towards it.

    [​IMG]

    You will be redirected to the update screen. Click on the green checkmark to run a check for any files you have yet to download. Next, click select all and make sure all of the boxes under Repository Content are checked. Then click the play button to begin the download.

    [​IMG]

    A notification box will pop up letting you know once the download is complete. You may now close Arma 3 Sync.


    [​IMG]


    Step 5: Install the Teamspeak Plugin
    Go to your Arma 3 directory where your files from the repository have been downloaded. (The path location will have been shown at the top of the repository update screen that you saw earlier under Default Destination Folder, picture below in case you have trouble finding the path destination.)


    [​IMG]

    Next, click on the folder that says @task_force_radio and then double-click on the file that says task_force_radio.ts3_plugin to automatically install the plugin. (Make sure to restart your teamspeak afterwards if it was open during the installation.) Teamspeak will now be ready for use in-game.


    [​IMG]


    Step 6: Load the Mods on the Launcher
    Open Arma3 and on the launcher, click on the "Mods" tab. Click where it says "Local Mods".

    [​IMG]

    That will open your file explorer. Now go to the same place your mods were saved to. (The path location will have been shown at the top of the repository update screen that you saw earlier under Default Destination Folder, picture below in case you have trouble finding the path destination.)

    [​IMG]

    Now back in your file explorer, in the Arma3 directory, load each of these 3 mods one at a time (@A3PL, @CBA_A3, and @task_force_radio).

    [​IMG]

    After that, you can hit play and move to the server listing screen.


    [​IMG]


    Step 7: Connect to the Server
    Click on Multiplayer. You can use a search filter and search for Arma 3 Project Life, or you can click on Direct Connect and type in the Server IP: 142.44.142.19 and the Server Port: 2302
    You will be taken to a screen that asks for a password. The current password is: NineToFive
    Next you will be asked to type your name. It is very important to type your roleplay name EXCATLY as it is on the forums so that support doesn't have to find you and make you change it! You are now able to connect to the server!


    [​IMG]

    Finally, after all of that, you are ready to play! If you have any questions or need help stop into Requesting Support and they will get you taken care of! If you have any concerns, message myself or a Chief, we would love to hear you out. Any suggestions can be posted in the Suggestions section on the forums and if you find any bugs make sure to report them in the Bug Reports! Thanks again for joining us and Welcome to Project Life!​
