Zeus Special Event #8 – WW2
Due to popular demand, the next Zeus Special Event will be in the WW2 era. The event will start on Friday December 8th at 7:00pm ET and end December 10th at midnight ET. The required mods for this event can be subscribed to from our Steam Collection. The required mods are around 21Gb so please download early to be ready for the event. We are going to try something new for this event and allow the Zeus to change maps. We will try to have 5 or 6 maps ready for the event to provide a broad selection of environments for the Zeus to choose from.
Zeus I recommend that you download the collection early and experiment with the mods in the editor. The organization of the factions, vehicles and weapons is different than what you might be used to. For all maps used in this event Bluefor will be Germany and the rest of the Axis powers, Opfor will be Russia and Independent will be US and its Allies.
Malden Night Time Missions
The NAK Community has spoken, NAK Command has listened. One of the requests that we get on a regular basis is to have more night missions on the servers. The problem, before today, was that the server would pick a time at random after a server restart, and time would progress 1 hour real time to 1 hour game time. Some players might never see a night mission, unless they happened to be on during one of the restarts that happened to be at night.
Our solution is to accelerate time on the server. The server will still pick a time at random when it restarts, but now every hour in real time will equal 6 hours in game time. Players will now easily see the day progress on the server. If you are on for more than a couple hours you are almost guaranteed to see the server change between night and day. At this time, this change is only on the Malden server. We will monitor community feedback and server performance, then decide if we will implement this change on other servers.
NAK Full Tactical Unit
Any NAK Tac members not registered with the NAK Tac Steam group by December 15th will be removed from the NAK Tac roster.
A new NAK Tac membership application is online, although it is not necessary to have a referral from an existing member, it will speed up the approval process. Any existing NAK Tac member in good standing may refer a member of the NAK Squad community.
Changes to the Zeus Server
Starting Friday December 8th, there will be some major changes to the Zeus server. The first change is the Zeus will be able to change maps, giving the Zeus more terrain options for missions. During the special event the Zeus will have at least 5 maps to choose from. After the special event, the Zeus will have the option to switch between Altis, Stratis and Malden.
The other big change is that the Zeus server is switching to whitelisted mods only. What does this mean to you the players. You will only be able to use mods that have been specifically approved. The list of approved mods is in the Zeus forum: Mod Whitelist . To request changes to the list please review MOD whitelisting request – Template and instructions. Check the Zeus forum for more details.
New Server Changes
We will be introducing additional side missions, including a rescue missions that can be completed a couple different ways. Some of the new side missions came from ideas from NAK Squad community members. If you have ideas for missions on the Invade and Annex servers, complete a Mission Suggestions form. Altis and Malden have been updated already with approximately 25 new or updated missions, including side missions with defend after completion, reinforcements by air and ground, and more.
Changes to TeamSpeak
NAK squad has made a change to the way that we run our TeamSpeak server. All new members will not be able to leave the lobby unit an administrator verifies that you are on one of our servers. If an administrator does not get to you within a couple minutes, you can send an in game message that reads “Request admin approval in TeamSpeak”. You will only have to go through this process the first time you join the TeamSpeak server.
The NAK Squad community would like to take this opportunity to thank and honor military veterans from around the world. Your contribution has made a positive impact on the lives of so many. To show our respect NAK Command has created a TeamSpeak group that all veterans of military service worldwide can display proudly. To be assigned your Military Service Recognition group in TeamSpeak, just let any admin know that you are a veteran, current or past, and you would like to be part of the Military Service Recognition group. Please keep in mind that NAK Squad takes stolen valor seriously and if it is discovered that you requested the Military Service Recognition group dishonestly you may be banned from all NAK servers permanently.
NAK Squad has been running gaming servers for several years now. Although much of our focus is on Arma 3, we explore new games as they are released with the intention of expanding the NAK community.
We view NAK Squad as a family of members who are distributed all around the world. Our goal is to provide and promote a gaming environment that is safe for everyone.
Along with our numerous game servers we offer a TeamSpeak 3 server that provides a “Live Chatroom” for everyone to use. Using TeamSpeak will help improve your gaming experience and increases the sense of community.

Welcome to NAK Squad and I hope to see you on our servers soon.
