Adding more hangers/warehouses + scheduler help?

Question

Hey guys, got my server up and working and looking for 2 things now, one I'd like to be able to add a few more hangers and warehouses to the airfields. I've seen some other servers do this and a bit of researching has yielded some less-than-useful results.

 

Second, whenever I run my BEC it says there is an error in my scheduler. Pretty simply, I want my server to restart at 0:00, 4:00, 8:00, 12:00, 16:00, 20:00 hours and want a 15, 10, 5, and 1 minute warning for each. Also every 15 minutes it should say "Welcome to (our site)". Here is what I have right now (and the #mission location is correct) :

Pay close attention to the timings of the restart batch and the shutdown command.  The restart batch begins 1 second before the shutdown command so that the server begins it's restart process prior to the server (and consequently BEC) shutting down.  

 

Here is my restart batch:

 

@echo off
echo.
echo.
echo Starting Arma 3 Altis Server...
echo.
echo.
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 10 >NUL
echo.
echo.
cd "C:\Game_Servers\Epoch_Altis\Altis"
start "rotate_logs" /min "log-rotator.cmd"
echo.
echo.
echo.
cd "C:\Game_Servers\Epoch_Altis"
start "Arma3" "arma3server.exe" [email protected];@EpochHive; -profiles=Altis -name=Altis -port=2302 -config=C:\Game_Servers\Epoch_Altis\Altis\config.cfg -cfg=C:\Game_Servers\Epoch_Altis\Altis\basic.cfg -autoinit
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
cd "C:\Bec"
start "BEC" "bec.exe" -f Arma_3_Epoch_Altis_Config.cfg
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo.
exit

 

Notice that there is a 10 second delay (ping 127.0.0.1 -n 10 >NUL)  at the start of the batch.  This allows the server to have time to shut down completely as a result of the BEC #shutdown command before restarting again.

 

 

If you time it like this your server will restart flawlessly every time.

 

 

 

 

As for adding buildings, I recommend two threads for you to study.

 

will get you up to speed on using a really simple editor.  It will allow you to add buildings and then save the results to an SQF file.

 

Once you have the SQF file(s) done, to learn how to add them to your server.  It's all super easy once you get it down.

Use mine as a model...

Fantastic, I was already working on using the M3Editor and I think I got what I wanted in, and scheduler hopefully working as well :) Now the one problem is that I cannot get the server to default into Chernarus w/ epoch.Chernarus mission. Is that a launch option I need to add to the end of the START arma 3 line?

For Chernarus you have to use the AllInArmaTerrainPack.  Check the downloads page and you should find a torrent where it can be downloaded quickly.  Once you get it downloaded and unzipped, place it in your Arma 3 folder.  Then you'll have to add @allinarmaterrainpack to your server mods in the startup line.

Yeah I've got Chernarus working and everything, I've already made some buildings and everything. I just don't know how to get it to default to Chernarus/Epoch as it's still starting into Altis automatically. Is there a launch option that starts a mission?

You have to set the mission in your server's config.cfg file.  Look towards the bottom and you'll see it.

I have "Missions Cycle" set to only epoch.Chernarus but I see "template = epoch.Altis; // DO NOT CHANGE THIS, IT WILL BREAK YOUR SERVER" ... Do I change that? lol. Nothing else points to any missions.
