Semper Fi

Hello, all…I am brand new to actually playing the game although I downloaded it around alpha 2.3…I was moderately overwhelmed by it so I let it sit. I finally decided to really look into the game, organizations and such, with the intent of becoming an active member. I’m a 53 yr old concrete mason from kansas city. married 33 yrs. 5 kids, 6 grandkids so I babysit alot. That being said, babysitting as much as I do, my TV is held hostage by cailou and doc mcstuffins so I’m hoping SC will be my diversion. Also, Windows just blocked mumble from installing…any suggestions? Thanks for you time. Looking to see you all in game

Welcome grumpybastard and thank you for your interest in ADI! Be sure to take some time getting settled in and getting to know a few members that you may not already know; we hold a SC/ADI associated Friday night flight night which is where you can get to know many of us as well as get some good training in. So, we hope to see you tonight if you can make it. ADI also supports a few other games, such as ARK & CoD, so if your interests lie with any of those be sure to hook up with us there as well. BTW, any thought as to which division you’d like to pursue within ADI/SC?

Either way, let us know if you have any other questions, and once again, welcome to the ADI family!

Hi and welcome @grumpybastard to ADI glad to see you on bored and if you need anything. Don’t hesitate to send me a PM on here, discord or just grab me if you see me on Mumble and I’ll do my best to help you we are all here to help each other at the end of the day. I’m always about if you just want to fly or play a few rounds of star marine that’s great with me. well hope to see you soon

Hey there GrumpyBastard - welcome to the ADI community!
First off - welcome to the star citizen experience - it is definitely a lot to take in, but there are a lot of players here at ADI that are willing to help show you around the game.

I know you are having some trouble with mumble at the moment - I made a quick post in your tech support thread to try to help out but we should be able to work through it with the knowledge base here.

I always like to make it clear that if you have any questions while you are here, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask one of us - we will do our best to get you the answers you are looking for.

Welcome again and I look forward to getting some game time in with you.

Please note it could take a day or two for your application to be processed. That said - the only thing this will delay is your access to the private forums here on this site - once your onboarding is complete you are free to get fully engaged with the ADI community!

Welcome to ADI Grumpy! You should try right-clicking the mumble/mumble installer to “run as administrator” and see if that helps.
Remember rule #3, real life first. Let’s hope the kids grow fast so that daddy has more time to fly! Looking forward to chatting with you in discord and mumble.

Semper Fi Grumpy, go ask Gunny if he knows where he can find a PRC-E7. Welcome Aboard!

Babysitting’s great!

provided they don’t keep wanting to fly the spaceship lol

Welcome to ADI mate!

Welcome to ADI, GrumpyBastard. See you in mumble… If you onboarded, you must have got it sorted.


Welcome to ADI mate, glad to see you decided to give Star Citizen a proper crack. I too supported much earlier than I started playing, I am glad I did though. It is becoming my go to game for evenings and weekends.

Unlucky on the TV, hopefully you get so immersed in the verse you won’t know what a TV or even daylight look like soon.

Welcome to ADI, Feel free to look me up always looking to fly.
