The Project Reality Team (https://www.realitymod.com) is currently in a financial crisis and needs your support to help keep Project Reality alive!

The Project Reality Team develops modifications and games that are completely free for its community to download and play. The cost of Project Reality's web server, domain names, code signing certificate, etc. however are not free. On average, it cost the team around $400 a month to keep developing Project Reality! Recently, our Google AdSense account was suspended for violation Google's very strict content policy. This, along with not meeting our donation goals over the past couple of months, has caused our available funds to become dangerously low. Our dedicated community is still very strong and now more than ever we need your support to keep Project Reality going!

Donate To Project Reality Here (https://www.realitymod.com/donate)

To get our finances back in order so that we can continue developing Project Reality, we are starting an emergency fundraising campaign. A donation goal of $1,500 has been set and we hope to reach it within the next month. Please show your support for Project Reality by making a donation today (https://www.realitymod.com/donate)! If we have already met our donation goal, please do not hesitate to make a donation anyway as we may not make our donation goal every month.

Project Reality: BF2 Update
Since the release of PR:BF2 v1.2, the Project Reality Team has been keeping busy producing even more content for our award winning modification to Battlefield 2. While the focus for the next version lies especially on bug fixes and overall stability improvements, you can also expect to see an ample amount of gameplay improvements and major game affecting updates in PR:BF2 v1.3.

Further versions will include more content such as several new factions, brand new maps and more! Currently the PR Team is finalizing v1.3 with more info coming up soon, but listed below is a small sneak-peek of two projects that are also being worked on and to be included in later versions: the Type 21 Frigate and Polish Armed Forces faction. You can expect to see a media release in the coming weeks with detailed information outlining specifically what will be included in the PR:BF2 v1.3 release and of course more eye-candy.

i am honestly not surprised, the community is very small and the mod is asking 350 bucks a month (over 5k a year) to keep itself running.


What happened with google adsense tho, and can you get it back and working?

Rezza
2015-04-09, 02:39
I'll push it a bit as well. I love PR and have to say the hours spent on playing this mod beats any 60 dollar game that I played in the last 5 years by 20x. So there goes a 100 dollar donation :cool: . Keep up the good work and thanks for creating such amazing gameplay experiences for the 9 years I have been playing this mod.

Rock on!

Take a look at the prohibited content (https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1348688). Complying 100% is probably not possible without making this place a pretty bland experience.

Fair enough, however, IMO realitymod just wont be able to sustain itself in base of donations until the mod grows larger (and it looks like the mod is going the opposite way).

Is there another ads service that can be hired?

Donated. I haven't played PR probably since v0.98 (only once or twice v1.0) as it has become really hard to scramble any time these days. But I am an avid follower of the forums, mainly because it never ceased to astonish me to behold the consistent progress that the dedicated PR team makes despite all the odds and seeminly dwindling number of players as BF2 has nearly sunk into nothingness elsewhere beyond this community that keeps it alive in a previously unimaginable form.

Thanks for your commitment and great work! Keep it up. I'll be looking forward to PR v1.3 and, hopefully PR2 one day.

Always been a big fan and supporter of this game. I love your work! It's been a while since i last donated so i have no problem doing so again. I have setup a $10 a month subscription which i intend to uphold until a commercial version of SQUAD is released. Thanks for all your hard work guys.

2015-04-09, 07:39
the 1.500$ is a one time goal that has to get reached to pay our debts.

we do not spent 1.500$ per month and we are already looking for cheaper solutions.

Curry
2015-04-09, 07:48
I will stay away from donating any more money until I see more transparency! And I advise everyone to do the same.
Don't get me wrong I'm more than happy to chip in some bucks but I want to know for what.
Just adding a huge banner on top of the forums and changing the donations bar WITHOUT ANY informations seems a little fishy dear DEV team.

On what are you spending 1,5k PER month? Donations always went to the website and the web servers IIRC, as far as I know AM is still hosting the PR master server out of his own pocket. If that changed why isn't there any news about it? Do you want support or not?

In german there is a saying: 'bei Geld hoert die Freundschaft auf' ('money breaks friendships')
And indeed it does. Once again the PR (public relations) work of the PR team fails.

Why are you not asking the community to help out in a different way? Every server admin is happily going to share their hardware, if that makes sense or not doesn't really matter at this point. Since we are not getting any informations at all.

Talk to us if you want support from us, the website could also just have been hacked, I mean who knows? On what the heck are spending 1,5 grand per month?

Again, please don't get me wrong, I love this game and its community but raising the monthly donation goal without providing any informations is definitely not the way to go.

cheers,
Curry.

I decided to post in the other thread and not in here thread since I respect the work and time you guys out into this and I don't want to stop people from donating. As well as I don’t know what others think. But I guess you asked me to post here now?

Why wasn't there a donation run before then? An announcement? Anything? Now it is just an emergency donation run… donate now or we'll shut it down. That is how donation runs work indeed (with fear) but then we can expect some transparency since we are sitting in the same boat, are we?

2Slick4U;2065541']The cost of Project Reality's web server, domain names, code signing certificate, etc. however are not free. On average, it cost the team around $400 a month to keep developing Project Reality!

Seriously, the only reason for 1,5 grand per month would be okay if AM would get his share but in the News there is not a single word about the Master Server.

Idea: Why not have Google Ads on this site like AdChoices? It can be non-obtrusive since you can select what ads you want, and it pays for the website and all.

Have one on the forum at the top, and have one on the main page at the bottom.

I donated $50 by the way :p

As they wrote in the opening post, they had that but Google blocked the forums from their Ads as we talk about guns and 'promote' it, which is not allowed.

There's alternatives other than Google's silly ad service, but there must be a good reason why they haven't done it yet. Googling "adsense alternative" has a lot of results. All about finding the right one, which takes time.

This is one link which places them in Top 10 rankings, with prices:
Top 10 High Paying Google Adsense Alternatives (2015) (http://roadtoblogging.com/adsense-alternatives/)

There's RevenueHits. Review here: RevenueHits Review: Best Ad Network for Publishers & Advertisers (http://www.bloggersideas.com/revenuehits-review/)

There's also Adversal which is $20 to start up but I have no experience with ad-services so I'll leave these to the knowledgeable people.

True. Maybe Google's bot thought it was against the rules, and automatically shut down the AdSense Account, thinking they broke the rules: https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/1348688#Weapon-related_content
Not Acceptable
Sites that sell firearms, ammunition, and gun accessories
Sites that catalogue individual firearms
Sites that drive traffic to firearm sales
Sites in the U.S. that sell Airsoft guns and DO NOT have the appropriate disclaimer on the landing page
Sites that sell knives or weapons with an intended violent use
Sites that teach bomb or other explosive-making or give instructions on how to harm or kill
Sites that sell fireworks or pyrotechnic devices

Which is a load of crap since PR isn't a gun website, and doesn't have illegal content like torrents (It's against the rules), and it's just your average mod/usual message board. I hope for an update since Google obviously stuffed up. Revive BF2's website is the same type as this (battlelog.co) so I hope they sort it out with Google. Best to call them up since it's quicker than email.

Curry
2015-04-09, 08:58
So what are the debts then? I understand that some informations doesn't belong here but at the same time you are asking for money. How bad is it, are we just barely writing red numbers or are we speaking about bigger numbers? When will we switch to a cheaper method?

Please understand my scepsis, whenever someone comes and asks for money I want to know what for - especially on the internet.
Share with us what you can so we can go out there and help to keep this going! We still want to play this great game! We got your back!

Curry adsense got cancelled, it took a while for people to notice, backup funds ran out, and the money is used for what it will always be used for, upkeep of forums and servers. Never for personal profit. It wasn't left to create a "panic" to increase donations.
Sorry if its not my place to say but ill just chip in with that before you get too excited with the conspiracy theories:P
Also its only for 1 month, I believe it'll go back to normal next month.

Rezza
2015-04-09, 09:30
You have every right to ask what the money is for but there is already enough info. Obviously they have been paying out of their own pockets to keep this going. If an old friend I spent 5000 hours with asks for some help after he helped me out so many times over I wouldn't question him or her.

Yea this might be the internet but this is the PR team we are talking about who are delivering free content since 2005 full of respectable developers and community.

There is scepticism if there is no trust. I have %100 trust in the PR team that they need this money and that they will use it to extend the life of the PR service without going deeper in their own pockets.

Alright then, thanks Andy and Camo for clearing that up. If it's a one time goal, okay.
I'm sorry if my posts stopped people from donating and I will do my best that we reach the donation goal together. But at the same time I expect you to understand my concerns, you have more informations than the rest of us does.

And when looking at the donation bar I guess the goal will be reached by tonight. I honestly hope there will be another News / further informations after the goal is reached and what will happen next!

My statements about the bad PR work still stands. I hope there will be some change in that matter.

The answers given to Curry are very opaque, the only thing we know is it's a "one-time thing".
As Curry said, transparency is key. Supporting is all nice, but it's also reasonable to see that the money is used efficiently. It's easy to waste a lot of cash with infrastructure if you aren't careful. If you hint that "nobody noticed that adsense ran out" this rather is a synonym for bad bookkeeping.
I've seen this with various "creative" communities: Content generation is nice and everybody loves it, but nobody wants to have to bother with mundane things like keeping the servers running, so it's a topic kept in the closet while the wallet is flush.
If you say "you are looking for cheaper alternatives", this translates to "We are wasting money right now" for me. So be open and transparent, and the community will love and support you. A bit of public self-reflection goes a long way in building trust.

My remaining Qs:
- How high are the continuous running costs per month (forums, dev FTP, master server, etc.)?
- Do you have a dedicated active person in the team that is responsible for overall bookkeeping?
- Are you overspending right now?

It's not a bad thing to admit to accounting errors or negligence. The contrary is true: being open about the underlying issues and mistakes made is the best way to show transparency and trust in the community.

Oh man, it makes me emotional seeing how much has already been donated. Thank you guys so much! The support for PR:BF2 and seeing all those votes for Squad really shows the awesomeness of this community!

But yeah, I understand all the questions you guys have. But talking about finances is never fun is it ;)
As the OP says it costs us about 400 to keep the servers running right now. Do remember this is not only this website, it's mostly our development server that are so important. Without them we cannot continue.

With adsense gone and donations going down each year (together with player numbers), we were running red after a while. Hence we need this amount to go back to +. After that we hope to be able to reach our normal goals each month together with cutting down on costs with cheaper servers and alternative ad programs.

I'm pretty sure you won't get any more details unless Slick wants to post them himself. We aren't simply gonna cross him on that.

Thanks for the reply Mineral :grin:

I have hope though that after 1.3's release, playercount is going to go through the roof when it's advertised. I can imagine nearly all servers being full.

I guess it works both ways since more people = more popularity = more money.

Also, another suggestion: A please disable ad-block message for the guys who use adblock ;)

Does this also mean we're going to get a new Westland Lynx - the Navy's variant. If so holy damn cant wait!

The Polish forces are also looking as if theyre coming along great. Really looking forward to playing as the Poles and fighting in the Falklands. Keep up the good work PR devs. We're all still here

Currently we are just looking at re-skinning the Lynx AH.7 but if we have time amongst all the other things we want to do for the next PR:F release, we may modify it a little to give it wheels instead of skids etc but this is very low priority on our to-do list so will probably not happen, especially since its only a minor visual change at the end of the day.

- Do you have a dedicated active person in the team that is responsible for overall bookkeeping?

"active" being the word that I would focus on. When the management of any group or company is barely present or is too focus on doing all the work instead of spreading it and leading his team, the over-all effectiveness and security of what is being done goes down the drain.

I would have donated a few times if it wasn't through Paypal but I understand that it is the easier way to setup up donations.

Good on the community to show this much support.
I noticed the 'Custom' donation option is not working though. When entering a custom number it says "The minimum donation amount accepted is 10.00 USD". I feel this might stop people from actually donating when they only have a few 'cents' to spare, i.e a $5 or even a $1 donation. It's not as significant as $10, but I imagine that every tiny bit helps, even if that's an amount below the minimum of $10.

Yeah well, my goodwill for realitymod has been slightly diminished when they allowed one of their developers to ban my account and the Free Candy Van server license without justification a few weeks ago. Obviously his decision was overruled, but it doesn't exactly make me feel too confident in telling my community to throw money at them in the mean time.

However, it looks like they've got the situation under control. Almost 500$ over the goal... so it looks like things should be fine for the next few months. Hopefully you guys find an alternative to Google Adsense to monetizing your website, I'm sure there are other options out there.

I'm actually surprised they suspended your account, I don't really understand why they would do such a thing... it seems realitymod and I make revenue off the same kind of content, so I don't see where the problem lies. Although, granted I'm with Machinima now... and they have their own monetization system outside of adsense, but still... its confusing.

Do not misconstrue this for a personal attack on the game or developers, as i enjoy and fully appreciate what they have done and the content that is provided in most cases completely free to us all. However, i too would appreciate more information before tossing my money their way. Judging by the fact they have already exceeded the donation mark i don't think they NEED my money but all the same if they want my hard earned money i'd like to see how this money is used exactly. 1.5K is alot of money. I don't see why it should be none of our buisness if we're forking out the money for it, i think that's the point in time where it DOES become our buisiness. I've seen vague bits of information up until now along with a "More will be revealed as we deem fit" type of posts. Well, until you deem fit and reveal more my money stays in my pocket.

IMHO donations != buying a share.

Ofc, for example Senshis concernes are a true thing. As in it would be cool to know if the DEVs managed to get better/cheaper hosting solutions and if they worked stuff out with the ads.

But I didnt donate now or before to buy myself into their bookkeeping. Thats not how donations (should) work.

Where in my post did i say i would donate to "Buy myself into their bookkeeping"?
I wouldn't donate for stature or any sort of perk. I'd donate to keep the game up and running, but with that being said i'd still like to know exactly how donated money is used and if it is being used it the most efficient way possible. I see nothing wrong with seeking more information before blindly throwing my money somewhere.

I've always adored PR since 0.3. I was glad to put money in to keep it alive, considering the time i've spent playing PR I would say every penny I spent worth it. I haven't played much as of late but I always keep an eye out for changes and updates and hopefully the eventual release of PR2. I'm a bit tired of the BF2 engine hence why I stopped playing for months at a time, but I will not give up hope for the new version.

It's kinda sad to see the annoying overcautiosness mainly coming from Curry and Ranzpirat. Their habit does not surprise me at all, it's quite common in where they (and I) come from.

bei Geld hoert die Freundschaft auf' ('money breaks friendships')

That german proverb from Curry is also misplaced, since we're not lending anyone anything (what the proverb is referring to in real life), we're donating.

Even if they'd hypothetically use the money for a day off on hawaii, I wouldn't mind. It would be deserved. It's not some random person we're throwing our money at, it's the devs of a game that delivered a game that not only brought us fun and joy over years, but was and is in fact FREE.

They ran the business out of their own pocket in the last months, and are now kindly asking to help them out. What do you think the Devs should have said instead? Would you have liked the sudden shutdown of the servers if the Devs wouldn't have said a thing? The shutdown of the servers is a consequence if no one would donate, face it!

Everyone who took a glimpse at the donation bar int the last months could work out for himself that there were going to be finanical problems, it's not like this was never foreseeable. So have some goddamn faith and trust.

I really feel the urge to apologize for them.

It's not overcautious to want to know the exact details of how your money is being spent by almost total strangers, it's smart. Sure, if the developers want to be upfront and start a donation thread for a trip to hawaii then that would be ok because everyone would know what they were donating toward...it'd be pretty straight forward....but to say they need donations for the game and then go to hawaii would not be ok in my book(hypothetically of coarse(as i'm not implying they would do that just commenting on your hawaii comment))

Teach us master! If it was that obvious why didn't you why didn't you let us know before?

Also I'm honored by your statements since it's usually me 'fremdsch?men' (being embarrassed for someone else) for the germans in this community.

In my understanding the saying 'money breaks friendships' does fit in even if it's origin may come from what you described.

The fact that I made bad experience with people asking for money IRL but also in my own clan made me post, might have been a little harsh but that doesn't matter at this point.
And maybe also due to my national and cultural background, but you would say something like that, right? That would be pretty racist and actually would make me want to apologize for you.

The thing is, that you are not exactly making a point here. You are contradicting yourself multiple times.

No matter that I've played this mod since PRMM 0.2 But the devs are still strangers. = Giving money to strangers you want to know what it is being used for. A hobo asking for money can use it for drugs, or to get some food/clothes/place to sleep. You would like to know what he will use it on before you give it.

Curry loves PR, and loves the devs in some way or another. Asking for a little more information is absolutely fine.

I Just want to throw in a hearty "fuck you" to Google. The grounds on which this Forum's usage of their services were terminated are both absurd and blatantly subversive. I recognize that the PR community is wholly international with many members hailing from all corners of the globe, each with differing views on personal armament and agency. That said, Google has thrived as a primarily American enterprise, and their flagrant disregard and contempt for the Second Amendment disgusts me. Until this moment, I lived in blissful ignorance of this facet of their sociopolitical agenda, but in light of this revelation, I am all the more troubled by their recent acquisition of a veritable horde of robotics developers and collusion with the NSA. Skynet when?

Anyways, I absolutely love PR, and I hope to see it thriving for years to come! Way to stick it to the man gentlemen!

As soon as I have paid back my dad for ebay stuff I have bought with his paypal account, I will donate. Please stay alive without me for at least the next two months, and I should have some cash again. :)

Shut up and take my money.

Ha ha! Seriously. Cynical, maniacal, $10 is that really too much to ask without the rants of some kind of conspiracy ? Do you even know how many DEV's and CON's there are? Split that $1500 between them all and they would each get a happy meal. Love and respect for anyone and everyone involved for the 9 years of free and realistic gameplay!

DONATE!

Teach us master! If it was that obvious why didn't you why didn't you let us know before?



You could have teached yourself by just looking at the amount of donations in the last months. That's what I'm referring to.


And maybe also due to my national and cultural background, but you would say something like that, right? That would be pretty racist and actually


First of all: nationality =/= race

I said that it didn't surprise me that this little shitstorm was coming from my fellow countrymen due of the general sceptisism/overcautinous mindset a lot of people have here. Maybe I'm wrong, but this is just my impression. So no need to pull out the racist mace.

You are contradicting yourself multiple times.


Prove it.

And are you guys going to pay my medical bills when muscle atrophy and bad joints haunt me 'cause of your darned game???

Ah, feck it! I'll throw in that $100.00 anyway, 'cause, all kidding aside, this mod has been the most enjoyable gaming experience of my entire frickin' life (and I've been gaming for 35+ years now since my mid teens).

I've spent WWWAAAYYY too much time on PR, but will never regret it, as I'm living/working 16-17 hrs. away from home, away from family and friends, and so PR has been wonderfully effective at helping me keep away the blues. A thousand thanks to the PR Devs and the PR Community!

Here's to at least another 10 years of PR!

I certainly hope, however, that the move will not be to any Unreal engine. I find the movements to be visually unpleasant, in the way that they look so bad, so fake... I would rather play on the BF2 engine for the next 10 years than to put any amount of time on an Unreal engine server. I know there are big problems with the Cry engine, and many advantages, development wise with the Unreal engine, so I understand you may not have too much choice in the matter. I just hope you'll be able to eventually find a better engine for the next generation of PR.

Whichever way it goes, thank you again Devs for all you've given us.


P.S. I'm completely certain that the whole PR community would shed tears of relief if you were to figure out a way to fix those goddamned helicopter (for the most part) or other %#@$#^@ #$%^!%^$#@% ^#@$%^@^@ #%$^$%^ &$%#^% #^$#@%@$#^% $%^$%^%$^# #$%@$^@$%^ #^%&^T&%^$@ #@%$@#$%$%^ sound bugs!!! ARGHHH!!! The damned noise in my ears! I'm going to go deaf! There must be a solution!? Please... pretty please???

Amazing progress with the fundraiser. I also noticed you guys added ads to the forums page but I think the advertisers made an interesting decision to pitch "green smoothies" and "Tommy Hilfinger" fashion shows in these. I think adding gas masks (Militia breacher?) to the fashion show and beer to the smoothie recipe might make it more appealing to PR players. Though they seem to have gotten it right with the patient bear trying to catch salmon ad.

Hi all,

I didn`t play PR for a while because of busy works. But today I donated some cigarette money when I heard that you guys are in crisis. My teammate said "they are doing this game like communists",when he heard about that you guys run everything with only 400 dollar pro month---and no offence, some times for some Chinese, "communist" means "somebody who do a job in adversity with glory ideal and not for money"(of course it`s a metaphor. The CCP members of today know nothing but money ). Anyway, I hope you could survive the crisis and let us see PR2 some day.

Peace Marton

Have you guys thought of putting an Amazon link stickied to the top of the forum, everytime a PR member is thinking of buying something they click the link and the PR website gets a little cash..

Ok guys, seems I didn't mention it yet, I donated over 100 $ last week. And now you DEVs better release the patch next month, including Falklands (I have no problem with placeholding objects!!) and polish forces.

And btw. also start checking how the PRT admins are treating some of their most loyal players... (Things have gone crazy concerning tournament rules and admins not even caring about their players)

If you keep those posts up I think the C11 admins might have already enough reasons to not even allow you to resign up.

And 1.3 is a bugfix and balance update as said multiple times Daniel :p. Don't expect much new content.

Seems like a sound decision to me. In terms of additions, as long as we get the AKM and maybe some emplacements for the insurgents I'll be happy. New insurgency mode should make things interesting as well but I can't imagine how you guys have balanced it because it seem like every change will give the insurgents even more advantages! After having been a hardcore insurgent player for the past two years I'm thinking of switching over to blufor because I'm getting tired of kicking their ass every single time :wink: OK, getting way of topic here...

2015-04-28, 13:28
I donated my share, only some troubles with Paypal so the money should be transfered in a couple of days.

But one request, can you make the ads to be vertical on the borders of the site instead of in between posts.
realitymod.com is the only site I have Adblock disabled on but the adverts really annoy me when the plop in just between posts...

Once you've donated, you shouldn't have to worry about ads anymore, as they'll be hidden for donators :).

That honestly doesn't make much sense to me. I really don't care if there's ads or not. Why not let the donaters donate more... for "free"? I appreciate the nice thought but it seems unnessecary.

Maybe give the option to the donator with an on/off switch? So they can decide if they want the ads or not? I know it's common but apparently people don't mind ads
