Zeus is a multinational Gaming Community based in Europe. Most of our regulars are from the British Isles or Continental Europe, but we do have members from all over the globe including the U.S.A, so do not let this deter you joining up. We do not require any formal membership to participate in any of the Zeus activities or events, and no dues or fees will ever be required, except if you're really loaded with cash, then we don't mind a donation or two.
We currently operate 2 main game servers, special events servers as well as our testing servers upon which our community members test and develop new missions and sims for our custom game nights. To locate our servers, simply filter for "Zeus Community" in your multiplayer game browser.
Server address: teamspeak.zeus-community.net Port 9988
The Zeus Gaming Community is a non-profit organisation that relies on the generosity of its members to help keep it flying. For more info, or to make a donation, click the button below.
Our servers are usually up and running 24/7 with a variety of missions available. At present, we run our customised versions of Patrol Ops but we also run custom sims at least four times per week.
You can take part in these custom nights without any required addons on Thursdays and Sundays (usually starting around 6.30pm GMT).
For those interested in a more customised experience, we also run addon nights on Wednesday and Saturday evenings (usually around 6.00pm GMT). These custom missions utilise the latest map packs, custom weapons, vehicles, game features and much much more.
There are no addon requirements for playing on this server but we do support and recommend our @ZClient Clientside addon pack to enhance your play.
In order to play on this server you will need to download and install a specific set of addons
To make this easier for you we recommend using ArmA3Sync, which is an addon management tool. This will take the hassle out of keeping your addons up to date. You can of course manage your own addons but we will not be able to support you in the event of an issue when trying to join our addon server.
If you need any help and support using our game servers, team speak server or need assistance with any community related matters, you should initially check out our Central Info Repository. This is a series of Google docs that are filled with tutorials and answer commonly asked questions. If these docs fail to give you the help you require, then please feel free to pop onto our teamspeak server and ask any admin who are always happy to assist.
This group is primarily responsible for administering gaming sessions and dealing with any issues arising in the session and with the server.

The unsung heroes who do their best to ensure the servers, updates, file repo and other back end magics run smoothly.
StealthySnowman was our senior admin during many years of Arma3. His effort, fairness and all round ability to be just a fantastic asset to this community and the well deserved respect he receives from the community place him as our No.1 VIP.
2600k (26K) is our most proflific mission developer). 90% of the missions on our servers are either his or made from his template. Kudos to this guy and many thanks from the community for his continued efforts

Zeus spawned from the fires of "Stoners House of Pancakes" based in Dallas Texas, which was arguably one of the best Operation Flashpoint servers to have ever been. The European contingent of that community pooled their resources and Zeus was officially opened for business on Sunday 6th April 2003.
Among its original members were Shrike, Torment, Killswitch, Terox, Pimmelorus & Sven, to name but a few. Zeus quickly grew into a popular community, spreading its wings to encompass both PVP and Coop, eventually setting up servers to cater for both styles of game play. We even ran a competition clan called "Zeus Spartans" which took an active part in the European Combat League
During this period we switched from BIS vanilla to OFP Modifications, most popular being FDF (Finnish Defence forces) & WGL (War games league) .We also dabbled quite deeply into mod making ourselves, the initial project was called Zeus mod which was way to big in scope and failed, eventually being replaced by WGL-Z, which was our tweaked version of WGL. WGL-Z was merged into a later build of WGL. We even attempted a mod for ?ArmA called ESP, however this was abandoned when ACE Mod was released.
Among our community we have talented Coders, Mission Makers, Modellers and texture artists and one of the cornerstones of Zeus is productivity. We encourage our members to create and assist in creating anything Arma-related, be it missions, addons or even entire mods.
Donations are totally voluntary, however they are vital to the continued services that we offer and we certainly do appreciate any contributions towards the running costs of the website, colocation & forum hosting, maintaining and upgrading our servers and their licences, plus any future costs that the community may incur. If you would like to donate to keep this NON PROFIT gaming community alive, please use the form below. If you would like to make a donation directly from your PayPal account, please make them out to: email@example.com
We are currently seeking any donations to help us buy a new community server. We have one specced and costed which will allow us greater player capacity and unrivaled performance. We have also included the cost of one years datacenter hosting.
