What mods are you using on it? The vanilla one doesn't have the aircraft carrier and things

Phil ... any chances of having a FTP access to our current setup? Then I can see just how this fucker is set up to begin with. Then I can build a test server and have a play

Ok .... it all makes sense now. Head was trying to make it more complicated than it actually is. Bloody brain.

Doing a straight update of the server should be easy. Will just be updating the A3Wastelands_settings, Battleeye and extDB folders and then replacing the existing ArmA3_Wastelands.Stratis pbo with the new one. Now there is a new map called Malden which is also on Wastelands, so not sure if you want to use that or not.

Now do you want to use whichever map as it comes in Wastelands, or do you want to modify them in some way? My thoughts are we could do some of the following:

Have dedicated heavily guarded (AI) bases for blues and reds (greens are independent so not really an organised force???)
Have a single "safe"  base where everyone is safe, let them have access to cashpoints, weapon/general/vehicle stores, etc

So all this can be done directly on the map, so won't be slowing the database side of things down. However, does mean they are "fixed" assets and would need the pbo updated. Which is nice and easy ... surprisingly easy cos it can all be done through the Eden editor.

Thoughts?

Yes to all of that..but also the roaming ai needs to be in ..as it's a low population server it's very quiet and boring without them .. I got a link ( at home ) for this and is highly customizable I will put this on this thread later. Also this thread should be now moved to the arma section .. and yes 1 base for everyone like you said sounds good

Yeah, Ive tried, but it fails, but from looking at it is because it's missing stuff from the wasteland settings

Figured it out ... Spot the difference ...

ArmA3_Wasteland.Altis

ArmA3-Wasteland.Altis

Bloody thing ... Anyway, I have got it working and it seems to all be ok. The "base" is at the Airport ... see if you can spot it ;) Feel free to wander round and have a look at things. I've put some basic details in so should look ok.

Ok ... just had a look my self and somethings are moaning about being to close to other things ... so will have a rethink about them ... but still worth a look

Oh and don't panic about the pbos ... I have a copy of all of them. The only thing I can'r get working is the killboards and not sure why at the moment.
