How to install Mods and Task Force Radio

Welcome to Ordinary Gaming!

This post will serve as a step-by-step guide on how to be a part of the community, and how to join the server.

If you have ANY issues or questions during these steps, please feel free to submit a support ticket HERE or join our TeamSpeak (ts3.ordinarygaming.net) and join the 'Waiting for Support' room for assistance

 

Submit a Civilian Application

(Civilian applications are currently NOT in use - it is open to all)

  1. Click HERE to go to the Civilian Application section. 
    1. Please note that your forum account name MUST match your Roleplay name. If you name(s) do not match, you may submit a name change request HERE.
  2. Once your application has been submitted, begin to study the RULES and the CHAIN OF COMMAND. You will need to know both of these for your civilian application
  3. Once your application has been approved, join the TeamSpeak at ts3.ordinarygaming.net and join the 'Waiting for Interview' room under 'Interview Zone'
    1. A support team member will conduct your interview, and if you pass you will continue on. If you fail, you will be given a cooldown period before you may retake your interview.

 

Download the required mods

Please note that these mods are 9.34GB. This download may take you a while, and it is recommended you download them overnight.

    2. Open the file, and select 'Teamspeak 3 Package Installer' as the program to launch.
