Welcome to Atlas Defense Industries


Atlas Defense Industries (ADI) is one of the largest (and still fastest growing) organizations in the Star Citizen community. Founded in the spring of 2013 by an 18 person leadership team, ADI's original leadership and membership came from a simulator-gaming background with significant experience running large clans in a number of games (Falcon 4 BMS, Arma 2 and 3, and DCS). ADI was originally founded to be a dedicated Star Citizen org, but has grown so much since that point that we've added support beyond Star Citizen for other popular games.

ADI's leadership team has background in running top 10 organizations over the course of the last 14 years, some going all the way back to WWIIOL in June 2001. Outside of gaming, the leadership team (and our members) has a variety of real world experience, including many members with prior military service, and even experienced military trained pilots.

Culture

We do everything we can to provide a mature and relaxing environment for our members. The large majority of us have graduated high school, even college, and are in the workforce: drama isn’t our thing. We are laid back, casual, familiar, and hospitable, which provides the best possible environment for discussion and gaming. Everyone having a good time is what we’re about, because that’s what’s important to us.

Exclusive

ADI strives to be the strongest and most successful gaming community possible, and that can only be achieved with dedication. To that end, divided loyalties have no place within our organization: members must play as part of the official ADI group in any supported game.

How to join ADI

Now that you're ready to join, please take a few minutes to follow the steps below, and welcome to the team!

  • Rule #1: Don't be a jerk.
  • Rule #2: Don't cause drama.
  • Rule #3: Real life comes first.

If members break any of these rules more than once, they will be asked to leave ADI.

The rules are really that simple, but to help we've posted explanations of each on our rules page.

All official communication within ADI is done on our private forums.

Click on this link to create an account. Once you've made one, visit the Introductions forum and follow the application instructions there. Please note that as a new account, you won't see your introduction post until a staff member approves it.

ADI Naming Policy: In an org of this size, record-keeping is a headache, and mismatched names creates big problems. As such, we require that all your usernames (forums, Mumble, Discord, Steam, etc.) match each other exactly.
All members of ADI are required to use our voice communications server. Set up Mumble.

  • We strongly recommend that you use a headset and have made sure it's set up properly.
  • Please make sure you're in a quiet area, or turn on push-to-talk by going to configure and settings on Mumble. Change transmit to 'push to talk'. You can set up the push-to-talk hotkey in shortcuts on the same screen.
  • Once you're set up, connect to our server (address in the instructions below) and a staff member will find you in the lobby.
ADI wants to make sure we have quality members who will mesh with the group from day 1. To achieve this, we do a voice interview with every prospective member. This gives you the chance to ask questions about the organization and get familiar with us and our culture.
  1. Connect to mumble.
  2. If somebody doesn't greet you in a few seconds, look for members with |R|, |T|, |AD|, or {D} next to their name.
  3. Right click on their name, and click on 'send message'. Explain to them you're new and would like to join ADI.
  4. One of them will come shortly and will move you to a private channel and proceed to onboard you.
