Last time I checked it for sunnus01 and everything was fine.
Don´t know why it should not work now but I can recheck it, especially for the filters and give you response as soon as I get some spare time.

Can you reveal your BE log related to this?
Do you have any errors in rpt´s (client and server)

Players told me, that Vehicles now can get locked from other players in the Safezone and fresh spawned vehicles can get stolen.

Anyone can confirm this ?

(1) There is a vehicle permissioning system to allow others to access your vehicle and,

(2) Yes, newly bought and spawned vehicles can be stolen. Personally I just ban the people who do so though... it's not like the idea of what's allowed in safe zones is new or anything...

Is this happening since Arma3 v1.70 or also before?
Should not be like that.
I will take a look asap.

Still standing brain begging for help here XD

I´m trying to set this up and want to configure the save zone coords. Did this in settings.h but this one makes me insane:

"Define your safezones here. (no comma after the last entry | !!! HAS TO BE THE SAME AS CLIENTSIDE CONFIG !!!)"

i´ve got absolutely no idea where to find that clientside config file.

thanks for your help :)

well, found it... #nobrainer
thanks anyway XD

Title:                 SPK_ESVP
Author:            Sp4rkY (Github)
Description:   Extended Safezones with Vehicle Protection for Arma 3 Epoch
Version:           0.9
Required:        Arma 3 1.66+ / Epoch 0.4+
Credits:            IT07 (Thx for many brain) (Github)

>>> >> > CLICK ME < << <<<

* Fully customizable
* Works with all maps
* Works for players and vehicles
* No more `"ProtectionZone_Invisible_F"` is needed (usually found in map config in a3_epoch_server_settings.pbo)
* Fired bullets will automatically be deleted in safezones
* (optional) Teleport players out of safezones after restart
* (optional) Teleport players away from the parking place (if used) after restart
* Protection from idiots trying to drive over other players (including traders)
* Check vehicle ownership of bought vehicles
* (optional) Teleport vehicles out of safezones at server restart to:
    - (optional) a given distance from the respective safezone
    - (optional) a static parking place (you can use your own map addition and define as many parking lots you want)
* (optional) Restricted vehicle´s access in safezones (only the owner(s) can enter the vehicle)
* (optional) Restricted vehicle´s gear-access in safezones (only the owner(s) can access the vehicle´s inventory)
* (optional) Protection for lifted vehicle´s
    - If using this feature, there will be also a check for the owner, so stealing is not possible
* (optional) Unlock teleported vehicles
* 2 ways of info messages (depends on if vehicle protection is used or not)
* (optional) Vehicle Access Menu:
    - "Refresh" button to update the player-list while menu is open
    - "Registered" listing to see which players are added to your vehicle
    - "Clear" button to remove the added players
* (optional) restrict access to driver seat for primary vehicle owner
* slingload check for bought vehicles (you can not steal cars or ships)
* (optional) info messages for prohibited lifting
* (optional) Prevent spawning of antagonists (UAV, Sappers, Snakes, Cultists) in safezones
* (optional) Allow/disallow to chop/sledge/chainsaw anything in safezones
* (optional) Feature to set map markers directly from this script (no need to define them anywhere else)
* If using the "vehicle teleporting WITHOUT Parking Place" - function:
    - the vehicles get teleported to a random position within the given radius out of the safezones
* If using the "vehicle teleporting WITH Parking Place" - function, it will works like this:
    - server restarts, vehicles in safezones will be teleported to a parking place
    - vehicles which are present at the parking place are getting teleported to a random location on the map, new vehicles (in safezones) are ported to the parking place
* If the respective safezone contains water, ships are treated like this:
    - if ships are located at water surface, they gets teleported close to the safezone´s shore at given radius
    - if ships are located at terrain surface because of lifting or simliar, they gets ported random at the maps shore
* If not using "vehicle teleporting" - function, remaining vehicles in safezones are indestructible after restart
* Debug option for better determine errors (client & server)


Enjoy this stuff and have fun!


Thx a lot ! 

Working fine, but i don't do 2 steps


If you wish to prohibit using of melee weapons while in safezones, copy the file epoch.Mapname\epoch_code\compile\functions\EPOCH_fnc_playerFired.sqf to the same directory in your missionfile (overwrite the existing one)

  • it´s prepared for Epoch 0.4 (if you already have custom changes in it, just merge it)

Copy the file epoch.Mapname\epoch_config\Configs\CfgRemoteExec.hpp to the same directory in your missionfile (overwrite the existing one)

  • it´s prepared for Epoch 0.4 (if you already have custom changes in it, just merge it)



I already had this file CfgRemoteExec.hpp 

I just past this line     #include "SPK_CfgRemoteExec.hpp" at the end


        class EPOCH_server_upgradeTempGroup
            allowedTargets = 2;
            jip = 0;
    #include "SPK_CfgRemoteExec.hpp"
    class Commands
        mode = 0;



because when i follow your step, i was in the floor at spawn zone ...


now it work ! thx !

Since the epoch update to 1.3.2 I'm getting this error in the server.rpt

20:48:03 Error in expression <VP_server]"
waitUntil{missionNamespace getVariable 'EPOCH_SERVER_READY'};
   Error position: <getVariable 'EPOCH_SERVER_READY'};
   Error Undefined behavior: waitUntil returned nil. True or false expected.
20:48:03 In last 10000 miliseconds was lost another 27 these messages.
20:48:03 File x\addons\epoch_SPK_ESVP\fn_initESVP_server.sqf [SPK_fnc_initESVP_server]..., line 1

Anyone else having the same problem?

I have also had another two come up in the client.rpt when I went into the safezone:

 0:17:24 Error in expression <rcycle','Tank','Ship'] == 1) || !isESVP)then{true}};
   Error position: <then{true}};
   Error Undefined behavior: waitUntil returned nil. True or false expected.

and this as well:

 0:20:19 Error in expression <ed cursorTarget isEqualTo 1) || !isESVP)then{true}}]};
   Error position: <then{true}}]};
   Error Undefined behavior: waitUntil returned nil. True or false expected.
 0:20:19 In last 10000 miliseconds was lost another 644 these messages.

Both appear to be coming from "mission\SPKcode\ESVP\init.sqf" and in this block in particular:

		showMsg = compileFinal "if(_this)then[{[format['%1',getText(missionConfigFile >> 'CfgESVP' >> 'messages' >> 'info' >> '_infoMsg1')],5] call Epoch_message},{[format['%1',getText(missionConfigFile >> 'CfgESVP' >> 'messages' >> 'info' >> '_infoMsg2')],5] call Epoch_message}]";
		accessCheck = compileFinal "
			accessCheckEject = {
				waitUntil{if(vehicle player == player)then{uiSleep .2;false}else{true}};
				_var = vehicle player getVariable['vehOwners',nil];
				if(!isNil'_var')then{if !(getPlayerUID player in _var)then{player Action['GetOut',vehicle player];closeDialog 0}}
			loadedAccessCheckESVP = true;
				waitUntil{if({if(cursorTarget isKindOf _x)exitWith{1}}count['Car','Air','Motorcycle','Tank','Ship'] == 0)then{uiSleep .2;false};if(({if(cursorTarget isKindOf _x)exitWith{1}}count['Car','Air','Motorcycle','Tank','Ship'] == 1) || !isESVP)then{true}};
				if(!isESVP)exitWith{loadedAccessCheckESVP = false};
				_var = cursorTarget getVariable['vehOwners',nil];
				if(!isNil'_var')then{if !(getPlayerUID player in _var)then{cursorTarget lock true;uiSleep .1;cursorTarget lock true;[] spawn accessCheckEject}};
				waitUntil{if(locked cursorTarget isEqualTo 0)then[{uiSleep .2;false},{if((locked cursorTarget isEqualTo 1) || !isESVP)then{true}}]};
				if(!isESVP)exitWith{loadedAccessCheckESVP = false}

Any ideas on how to fix?

I think BI have changed the behavior for waituntil loops with the latest update.

I do not know this scripts, but you could try the following:

Replace this line:

waitUntil{if({if(cursorTarget isKindOf _x)exitWith{1}}count['Car','Air','Motorcycle','Tank','Ship'] == 0)then{uiSleep .2;false};if(({if(cursorTarget isKindOf _x)exitWith{1}}count['Car','Air','Motorcycle','Tank','Ship'] == 1) || !isESVP)then{true}};


waituntil {{cursorTarget isKindOf _x} count ['Car','Air','Motorcycle','Tank','Ship'] > 0 || !isESVP};



And replace this line:

waitUntil{if(locked cursorTarget isEqualTo 0)then[{uiSleep .2;false},{if((locked cursorTarget isEqualTo 1) || !isESVP)then{true}}]};


waitUntil {(locked cursorTarget isEqualTo 1) || !isESVP};

      This is a new version of a safezone script and an a.i/a.i vehicle remover. To be used in conjunction with the 1061 safezone script. So say your safe zone is being bombarded with roaming a.i and you are tired of going to safe zones to delete them this will do it automatically when you go within 350 meters of an roaming a.i while in a safezone. The distance is customizable. The new safezone script allows you to receive god mode for 20 secs after you leave the safe zone IF you have stayed in the safezone long enough. This will avoid players from touching the safe zone and taking off for a way to avoid combat from other players. All credits go to @juandayz for this. Uploaded with his permission. 
      1- into mpmission\your instance\scripts\  create a new folder called "safezone"
      2-into this folder create this sqf:
      3-open your init.sqf
      4-Now if ure using DZAI:
      5-If ure using DZMS then do the same:
      6-If you are using some kind of other script that spawns enemy ai vehicles then add the same variable.. for example:

      As I said before, I am new in all these.  We rented a GTX server with everything on and we are trying to set some costumization but.... yes, there is always a but... I would like to ask some help.
      Please, consider me as a total new in scripting and I need a "step by step for dummies"
      1.- I am trying to set the entire server into PVE so no player could harm other player or kamikaze into anybody.  How and where do you handle this "godmode" so I turn the server into PVE?
      2.- Though like I said we want the server to be PVE, the idea is to make 2 exceptions and create 2 pvp areas (in Cherno and Elektro).  How you Mark those areas in map with notifications 100 mts (for example) "you are entering a pvp area"
      3.- Admintools: I set them exactly like the step by step guide but it is giving an error (I dont have antihack), 
      4.- Since the problem with Bohemia and BE, I could never make the messages announcing the server restart again, any idea would be welcome.
      And... that's it for now.   I know it is a lot and very "dummy questions" but, what can I say, I am kinda dummy in this topic
      Thanks for any help

      Hi !!
      I've made a custom safezone on my server, and I want to disable loot spawning in this area, how can I do that ?
    • By BoleParty
      I removed the standard Epoch spawns and static traders within the spawns and and replaced everything with new spawns and traders.
      By default the spawns have a safe zone included but in case you want to have a bigger diameter of it, i attached Friendlys "Extended Safe Zone Script" and an edited version of the mission.sqm.
      In each spawn i placed either one or two boxes which can be used as a temporary storage. If you purchase items and you dont have enough space in your inventory you can put them into the storage.
      All items will be gone after a restart tho.
      Additional in each spawn i placed an atm and phone boxes so that players are able to access their bank accounts.
