NOTICE For those who want to use this in 1.0.6
Instead of using this one, I suggest visiting the following thread for game version 1.0.6 and up
The tools are partially updated for the new release. Most features are working so far and it can be downloaded from here (follow the readme for install): https://github.com/noxsicarius/Epoch-Admin-Tools/tree/TestBranch
Under NO circumstances should you download this tool from a different source. I have been notified of numerous virus downloads listed as my work (usually second page of google and farther). I have petitioned to have all of the ones I know of blacklisted and have sent virus profiles to all major antivirus companies. If you find a .exe in any work claiming to be mine, it is a virus and should be shredded.
Please only download from MY github link or the links in this post.
My github repo will NEVER be removed and if I leave the project and someone wishes to take over, they will be given rights to the repo.

BEFORE posting an issue on Github or on this forum:
If you think you might have installed it incorrectly, follow the YouTube Video Install Tutorial Try reinstalling the tool. You more than likely missed something important. Do a quick search on this forum for a fix to your problem. Check your server's RPT log for errors. This will identify 99% of problems with the menu. Be ready to copy/paste the RPT log into Pastebin or Gist in an issue or in the discussion forum for help with troubleshooting. If your problem persists after doing the above:
Open your arma2oaserver.rpt file in a text editor and copy/paste the RPT log into Pastebin and post your issue in this forum with the rpt log. If you post something like "It doesn't work" I will not acknowledge you. Not giving all possible details in the first post simply makes it take longer to resolve and will waste everyone's time. I am hard pressed for time these days so if you won't take the initiative to provide information, I won't ask for it either. I am not trying to be mean, but I am quite tired of getting 5 or less word posts that provide no information other than this person has some kind of problem somewhere on their server that may or may not be related to this mod. If the problem you are posting is a bug and not a general install problem then post it to this forum AND to the github issues page.

I have a server i started not too long ago hosted by GTX. I had InfiSTAR installed by the support and server was working decent. After EPOCH updated to 1.1 my server does not have loot in any building. Very few containers spawn with anything usefull in them....Furniture in houses and loot piles will have generic loot like moist towlettes and paint or minimal building supplies.
I do not see blue tarps on the map anymore and cargo with loot spawns maybe 3 or 4 in an entire day of the server being up and running.
No AI spawns in any area of map at any time of the day. Have been playing over a week now and nothing spawns anywhere.
and it NEVER stops raining.
I am VERY noob when it comes to adding scripts or mods to servers myself. I played an Arma 2 server about 2 years ago and learned a bit about this stuff. since then i have been re-learing everything.
the only thing i have installed is Zombies and Demons. Nothing else has been changed or edited by me.
Is there anything i can edit myself to change any of this? should i have the server reinstalled?
I found this on another forum, but seeing as I am truly dedicated to this one, I thought I'd share what i have found concerning the question I see a lot of people ask regarding default loadouts for everyone, including respawns and new players to the server. Its customizable with current 184.108.40.206 class IDs.
Unpack dayz_server.pbo and navigate to the compiles folder. Open the file named server_playerlogin.sqf. Find the follow block of code :
_config = (configFile >> "CfgSurvival" >> "Inventory" >> "Default"); _mags = getArray (_config >> "magazines"); _wpns = getArray (_config >> "weapons"); _bcpk = getText (_config >> "backpack"); _randomSpot = true; _key = format["CHILD:203:%1:%2:%3:",_charID,[_wpns,_mags],[_bcpk,,]]; _key call server_hiveWrite; and comment this out by adding /* */ to the top and bottom of this code block. Like this
/* _config = (configFile >> "CfgSurvival" >> "Inventory" >> "Default"); _mags = getArray (_config >> "magazines"); _wpns = getArray (_config >> "weapons"); _bcpk = getText (_config >> "backpack"); _randomSpot = true; _key = format["CHILD:203:%1:%2:%3:",_charID,[_wpns,_mags],[_bcpk,,]]; _key call server_hiveWrite; */ Then directly underneath this paste the following and configure to your liking. I have tried this and it works. To understand the logic, it is pointless to add a custom sqf in the mission folder, whether it be inside the init.sqf or a "exeVM" or a "call" method pointing to another custom sqf file seeing as the init is processed before server_playerlogin.sqf.
_randomSpot = true; _inventory = [["ItemFlashlight","ItemMap","ItemGPS","NVGoggles","AK_74"],["ItemBandage","ItemPainkiller","30Rnd_545x39_AK"]]; _backpack = ["DZ_ALICE_Pack_EP1",,]; _key = format["CHILD:203:%1:%2:%3:",_charID,_inventory,_backpack]; _key call server_hiveWrite; Here is a list of most of the class ID's currently being used. Not all of them are there, but for this purpose you will find it more than adequate.
Finally we can now lay this beast to rest. Hope this will help many solve their default loadouts. I can recommend <ESSV3> by @ebayShopperif you need more than a single loadout for all spawns.
Im looking for an easy, effective way to randomize loot (weapons, ammo, toolbelt items, food, meds and building supplies) in static crate. I have a placed crate already and populated with stuff but i would like to have this random on spawn. Also i would like to know how to have this crate stay for 2 hours then destroy and respawn 15 min later. This is what my customLootCrate.sqf looks like :
