Soldat on Discord (Teamspeak and Chat combined!)
« on: October 15, 2016, 05:11:28 pm »
Hi! This is my first post ever on soldat forums. This post is regarding a program called discord. It is a free alternative to IRC and Teamspeak. Why discord? Arguments is here: https://discordapp.com/features
Sure, the application does not remove IRC totally, it might still be needed for gathers. We are currently 10 people on the server. Hope we can get some active players to talk to and not only chat.

[REPOST FROM SCTFL]

[WHAT'S DISCORD?]

 The design is a real step up, the features are amazing and the sound quality is good... And it's all for free, you don't even have to pay for a server... Are they madly insane?!

DISCORD is a unique application that was specifically designed by gamers for gamers. It is made to withstand the current non-stop updates in the gaming world, whereas the VOIP programs aren't updated as much.


[WHY WOULD WE USE IT?]

First and foremost the idea is creating one place for all the Soldaters to be. There is SCTFL, Soldat Forums, Facebook lurkers and some other co-communities that might run that we aren't really aware of. themangokind already created a #soldat  community server (as shown on preview below) - this link is an invite, just press it to get redirect to the server!

It can be a great tool for everyone to connect and make new people feel more welcomed perhaps in the more competitive scene.

Just to be clear there's no intention for it to replace IRC  that we've been using for so long. Maybe one day it will if there'll be a gather-bot integration for there or something. But that's not the case - this is about community. :)

[WHY IS DISCORD FREE?]

Quote
Never pay for voice chat again
Discord is always completely free to use with no gotchas. This means you can make as many servers as you want with no slot limitations.
Wondering how we’ll make money? In the future there will be optional cosmetics like themes, sticker packs, and sound packs available for purchase. We’ll never charge for Discord’s core functionality.

[FEATURES]


• Allows anyone to create a server for free with a click of a button (Location pickable too)
• Allows creating shareable links to a specific server (Invite only mode possible too)
• Allows integration with Skype / Steam to connect with more players
• Allows to integrate Soldat with the application, so "nsj - playing Soldat" will show
• Web access for players who are using a temporary setup of some kind
• Text chat (IRC like) which allows a greater interactive experience.
• Free phone app to connect with

[LAST WORDS]

It's easy to be skeptical about something new, and I'm expecting already the "this game is dead" comments from the drained ones. But this is a really neat app and opportunity to try to bring in some new spirit. Give it a try! Try the web version and if you like it download the application, integrate with Soldat and invite your friends! This can work. :)

Glad I could help! When I have time I will try to create a gather bot :) Or someone else does that; anyways it would be nice to inform people regarding this, so spread the word. Also consider to not create your own server for your clan just yet, it is nice to have one common place (like #soldat) where people can idle) and then invidivual servers for clans where discussion of tactics etc is done!

Here is the link again if the first one above doesn't work: https://discord.gg/vnMWCCd

Looks amazing. A shame there is no client for Linux, though... It's not open source either, is it?

It's not OSS, no.
Linux client is available here

Discord is nice. It's like they combined teamspeak and Slack.

Want to update that we are now around 80 players on the server! Going great, I'm still trying to get public players to use it and those with out a community. (like my self) I would love to see more admins be there and idle and maybe some IRC ppl as well.

Maybe if we direct our focus on Discord + the new graphics coming out we could get an modern soldat going? (It can be played flawless on linux as well soo... steam next?)

Do join us on discord, we've gotten to over 40 people and still slowly growing. It's like IRC, only better, and with voice chat so you can do voice com clanwars without having a vent/TS server.
