Situation Reports / Headquarters
TFCO MAJOR SITREP/16 - November/December 21

Wednesday 29 December 2021


Major James

Commanding Officer

Welcome to the final SITREP for 2021, it has been nearly two months since the last major SITREP, so while this is a bit of a bumper edition of sorts, we will follow up with a Minor SITREP around the middle of January, as there are a number of items we just couldn't roll out in time. If this is your first SITREP a very warm welcome to UNITAF - I hope you are enjoying your time here thus far. For those of you that are skipping this paragraph because it's not your first rodeo, I wish you a very happy holidays and into the new year, from all of UNISTAFF.

The SITREP is the primary communication detailing roadmap progression and changes to SOP - it contains key updates from the senior staff and from across the senior chain of command.


Firstly and in view of what you will read further down in this SITREP, a massive thanks goes to our Mission Support and Leadership teams for delivering some fantastic campaigns this year. We're a bit heavy on the Conventional War side at the moment and I have instructed staff not to accept any further campaign pitches of this type. That said, we are willing to accept proposals for COIN / Peacekeeping or similar to help bring balance to the schedule in the new year.


New Campaign Updates

Operation Poseidon
Summary: Throughout the last 10 years, the People’s republic of China has increasingly built up their military. At the same time they have also been expanding into the South China Sea. The US & Australia have recently been combating this threat with major exercises however, After the recent incident with PLAN Forces, it's time for more drastic action.

View full details on the Campaign Center https://unitedtaskforce.net/campaigns/portal/op-poseidon


Operation Everglade
Summary: Cold War, mostly ironsights without optics - to be announced shortly.


Existing Campaign Updates

Operation Sapphire
Sapphire was retired out in mid-December to allow for a map change, and is due to return shortly on it's new terrain.

Operation Parabole
Similar to Sapphire, Parabole is set to return with a new map shortly.

Changes to Recruit Fatigue and Slot Access

Effective immediately, (fatigue bonuses may take up to 36 hours to apply)

Over the course of this year, and since the introduction of the Tier and Fatigue systems, we've continued to review effects across the Task Force and what follows is the latest re-balance in that vein. Even if your not a Recruit, this change may impact you so it's worth reading.

Earlier this year we noticed that some recruits were ignoring Core Infantry and progressing tiers in other areas, which lead us to prevent Recruits from being able to achieve Tier II in any non-infantry area. This change was aimed at ensuring that recruits are not distracted by the lure of those areas until they have served a set period in entry level combat roles. This is vitally important because the majority (over 80%) of the entire slot supply is Infantry, and our Recruitment and Retention Marketing also reflects this, with Applicants being told specifically that the Unit is Infantry First, and not to apply if they dislike infantry roles.

This is a quite deliberate effort to deter applications from single interest applicants, who for example would only fly, or drive tanks and never deploy in other areas. Our data shows that the most successful applicants have 2-3 interests and we're looking ultimately for team players who'll be flexible to the teams needs, but still have their own interests. Partly, this is also about rewarding those that do have multi-interest approches.

To further this effort, we're going to continue to double down on this policy post application by making the following change;

  • Recruits no longer have access to Tier II (or greater) roles in any Combat Area, except for Core Infantry
  • This means Recruits;
    • can access T-0 and T-1 roles outside Core Infantry, via L Slots, having the Tier or via 1UP
    • can access any Tier Core Infantry role via having the requirement or through 1UP or 2UP


Above: Recruits will see the "Min Pvt" message on roles which they can't access as Recruits.

This update will go some way to reducing the time a Recruit spends in their probationary period by funnelling them into meeting the requirements required to progress, or, frankly giving up because the unit is not right for them - which to be clear - is OK.

To help Recruits, while we are taking away with one hand we are giving with another;

  • Recruits will no longer gain fatigue in Core Infantry, getting a 100% reduction in fatigue (only for Core Infantry roles) during their first month of active time in grade (0 ATIG).
  • During their second month of active time in grade, they'll get a 50% reduction in fatigue (only for Core Infantry roles) (1 ATIG)
  • Once they reach 2 ATIG, 2 months active time in grade, they will no longer get a fatigue bonus for Core Infantry Roles

This change is two sided, it will give Recruits priority access on release to Infantry roles, and will free up specialist roles for Regulars, at the same time it is intended to ease some of the complaints around the difficulty of slot access for new Recruits, easing them into our system of deployment. We will continue to monitor this closely and the resulting impact/behaviours on both Recruits and Regulars.

UNITAB Additional Feature Update for Intelligence Officers

Effective immediately

If you are the listed Intelligence Officer for a deployment, a role assigned to the Senior Game Master, you'll see a slightly altered UNITAB in future;


  • Reporter - opens the Splendid Camera
  • Admin - Opens the Admin Menu



  • Reload ORBAT - Hard reloads the full ORBAT, use if having multiple issues with loadouts or Zeus permissions
  • ENDEX - Runs the ENDEX script, desimulates all AI, heals all players, puts all weapons to safe
  • Get Zeus - Emergency Zeus recovery performant, never use promote Zeus modules.
  • Open Arsenal - Opens a full Arsenal for your Player.


CBA Settings

Effective immediately

Version 2412.21 was updated and released to STG-2 in December, a number of minor changes outlined below;

  • Ability to arrest armed players or suspects pre surrender
  • Minor increase to blood flow rates for IV lines
  • Removal of ACE Fire systems introduced in the ACE 3.14 update
  • Added versioning headers to setting files for easier tracking

If you have not updated your mission files, please ensure you do so, a version for AI Uncon has also been published.

A full mod review has taken place, and you can find approved mods here and pending approval / rejected mods here.

Effective immediately

I will highlight just a few notable mods;

  • Zulu Headless Client (ZHC) - to be tested, potential for performance improvements
  • grad_civs - to be tested on deployments pending adoption, a good candidate for Enduring Freedom

A number of mods have also been approved for the Upcoming Operation Poseidon (China) and Operation Everglade (Cold War).

November/December 21 Personnel Activity

With a few deployments still to go until the below data for December is finalised, the recovery in total attendance continues with just over 800 unique deployments in both November and December, the active force strength remains strong at 114 in November and down to 109 in December, with the next intakes planned for January 2022, this should continue to level out in the new year.


November/December 21 Operations Activity

November posted a joint record with May for deployments at 38, December a little quieter which was anticipated over the holiday period. There was a notible dip in overall mission ratings posted in December, down 5 points from the accepted average, it's also cerrelated with a minor nose dive in server performance ratings which will contribute somewhat to the overall figure.


Some work was done to address poor server performance reports in late December which we continue to monitor - In any case, some healthy data all around and nothing to be overly concerned with during this period.


A look back at 2021

When we get to this time of year, it's a good chance to reflect on the year, but to also cast back on previous years - to see just how far we've come.


Deployment activity

I feel this probably speaks for itself that we completed the same number of deployments last month (November, less 1) than the entire year of 2019. The number of deployments increased by 69% to 393. Well over the 1 per day average. Talking to the active force strength, annualised (this is the number of unqiue people deploying in the given year). Increasing at a similar rate to deployments, from just shy of 200 to just under 300 this year, what that does show is a % of total force members with a total membership less than 1 Year, or a higher turnover of Recruits as the force grows, which is expected and also under further investigation.


Slot supply

Where this gets really interesting, is when you factor in not only the huge increase in operations, but the increased size of them, resulting in a ramp even SP2 Bex wouldn't drive off. Again to use my prior comparison, we deployed 825 slots this November, which is more that the total deployed in the entire year of 2019 at 556. The number of slots deployed has increased 148% from 2020/2021, to over.. 9000.



Mission ratings

You know what they say, quality over quantity - and so it's important to not forget that. Even so, average mission ratings across the years are still overwhelmingly positive, and we recently passed the 90% average all time. While there are observable points of failure month to month, this shows that the application of corrections is overall effective.



You will have likely seen the UNISOCIAL announcement on Discord, which has already been deployed a few days ago - the video below outlines it in full, but a summary is below.

  • Other games moved from account settings to UNISOCIAL
  • Other games getting dedicated pages
  • Other game rally pings auto-create and remove voice channels with invites as part of the pings



As mentioned in the original update, we will build on these updates in the future.


Continual SOP Improvement Programmes

There are number of CSIP teams underway at this time, they are;

  • CSIP Medical: Full Review, expected Q1/Q2 2022
  • CSIP Leadership: Full Review, expected Q2 2022
  • CSIP Mission Support: To create and detail undocumented SOPs, ongoing
  • CSIP LOAC / CPERS: Minor updates to CI LOAC policies, expected Q1 2022

It has been a rather long 2 months since I did a proper updates and congratulated those of you promoted since the last SITREP, so it's a longer list than usual. The last few months saw two new entries to the COC, both Cpl Sean and Cpl Nico and some promotions up the chain for SSG Chelmy, SSG Aiedail, SFC Whitewolf and most notably MSG Zuka and 2Lt Korean Falction - congratulations.

Also notable, the batch of SP2 and SP3 promotions since the Rank Review of SITREP/14.
