Plot Pole remove: Many Crowbar and Tool Box broken

Recommended Posts

Rai!

Often i have people on my server asking me why they can't remove their plot pole.

The case is that they lost so many crowbars and/or toolbox broken in the process that they start to think that there is something wrong. I feel like then.

So i would like to ask you. This is normal? It's working as intended? Or it's any king of problem my server is having?

Thankyou in advance!

As standard there is a 10% chance of breakage per medic animation cycle (3 normally or twice as many if not the owner).

 

The code is in remove.sqf and you can change the chance of breakage very easily.

 

Look for

   if((random 10) <= 1) then {

Changing it to

   if((random 100) <= 1) then {

Would give a 1% chance.

 

Removing ( or commenting out) the whole "if" statement up to "};" will remove the chance of breaking a tool.

Oh! I see...

Thanks a lot!

So if the player is not the plot owner the chance to break is 1 - 0.9^6 = 47%.

Its strange as sometimes people try 5 or more times without success, i feel inclined to disable it.

Again, thankyou!

Np,

 

I got through quite a few tools when taking down a sandbag (IIRC) fence around my plot I had put up to stop the zombies, only to find out the zombies could walk right through (or maybe it was barbed wire...).  That was a real pain and lots of tools got broken.

Yep,

 

Look in remove.sqf and change

 

Find

if(!(_ownerID in _friendlies)) then {
_limit = round(_limit*2);
};
Change to 
if(!(_ownerID in _friendlies)) then {
_limit = _limit;
};

You could change it to be a bit more elegant but that will do the same job with the minimum of effort and would be easy to change back if desired.

Hi everyone, 

 

So no one in my server is getting the option to remove plot poles. I played in another server and it was damn near impossible to get a remove option. But try as I might I nor anyone else, can get the option to remove plot poles. Anyone have any ideas about this? I'm having to delete Plot poles and give free ones to people.. and of course tagging as friendly to build doesnt work anymore either.

I wouldn't know off by heart but If you said what scripts you had installed or what errors you had in your rpt's they mite help. Have you checked your fn_selfactions file to make sure you have done things right there?

No errors, just no option to remove plot pole. 

 

Scripts that I can think of off the top of my head:

 

Self Blood bag, 

Suicide

DZGM

DZAI

WAI

DZMS

JAEM

Deploy bike/ mozzie

Towing

infistar

Custom Map buildings

Custom loot

      NOTICE: Duplicate of another question posted in the wrong section.
       
      So I've been playing this server that has a number of mods installed. I've been playing it for quite a while with the only errors I've been getting are regarding a 45 round RPK mag being missing, but other than that I've had no errors or any issues loading. Upon trying to place a plot pole, nothing happens; absolutely nothing, like no preview shows up, no prompt saying "starting construction" or anything like that, just blankness. When I try to do it again it says "building already in progress" and I can't do anything, not even lock my vehicle. Is there anything that can be done, or that can explain this phenomenon? To further the understanding of how this came to be, I bought a plot pole from the trader in Trader City Stary and tried placing it near Stary, but not too near it (near a thicket of bushes in the distance). Upon right clicking and hitting the build option, that's when I face my issue.

      Hi Folks!
      I was wondering if theres a way to stop players from removing plot poles that aren't theres?
      Using a toolbox, crowbar and Etool players can remove Plot poles that dont belong to them, anyway to fix and remove that option?
       
      Thanks :)

      The editor just seems really clunky and impractical. Plus when using it, most of the buildings and trees are gone, so I can't build bases on top of premade buildings (which is the meat and bone of DayZ in my opinion). Anyone know how to practice building?
      One of my favourite things in games is base building. To be more specific, making shooting ports. Arrow slit like holes that make it impossible to kill you from a certain angle. They're really OP in games like Rust. The building system in Epoch is my absolute favourite, I'd play on empty servers just so I can dupe glitch in cinder blocks and shit and make epic bases (then never play on the server again). But I usually practice on sandbox servers in Rust, Is there anything similar in DayZ Epoch? I have no experience making my own servers, so that is out of the question.

      Does anyone know how to turn off the Maintain Area for the plot pole? I know it will still say maintain area and maintain area preview, but i dont want it to charge for maintains.
      Before you say it, I stay on top of my servers and keep them cleaned up.
      The data base has no functions and events enabled. So its not that.
      All I am finding in this forum is over 2 years old, still looking.
