Your first Epoch server? | Back in time.

Recommended Posts

Hy,

I recently started playing A2 Epoch again after quite some time and the last few days i was wondering were it all started for me..

Then i remembered (also is in my 'about me' on this forum) that it was a server hosted by a fellow Dutchie named [AOS] Emmen.

Well my question(s) is/are simple: What was your first ever (long term) server called that you played on? and is it still around to this day? And what made it so special?

 

I hope you guys can still remember your roots.

My first long time server was a PVE server. I was new to the mod and tired of getting my
ass handed to me while i was trying to build a base as a Lone wolf. PVP has never really interested me
in any form of Dayz.
I liked to play a story with personal goals to achieve etc. This server was run by an experienced
server-pack user. After a few months I donated and was almost immediately asked to become an admin.
The server was regularly becoming full-ish and there seemed to be a fair few players returning on a regular
basis. I spent far too many hours of the day on that server. I became an admin and had a fully enjoyable
experience helping new players, and the call to aid of the regulars.

Through being an admin I became interested in the background work of hosting a server. I started off by
creating my own AI strongholds and missions for the server and eventually was allowed access to the server files. I
quickly moved into hosting my own local test server and my love for Epoch Mod was galvanized.

I used to create my own servers, hosted locally, using every map I could find, making it unique to my
standards - then I played the shit out of them, just me and a map full of AI. I can still remember
my excitement of the very first time of playing on Namalsk.

Player Interaction was what made me stay there for many months, eventually the owner of that site showed
his true colors when he became greedy and started selling admin access for donations. As you can
imagine this caused all sorts of problems with kids using the admin tools and ruining legit players
experience and ultimately was the reason I left.

From the time I settled on that one PVE server so long ago, approx 2013/2014, 8966 hours have passed me by on Arma 2
Dayz Epoch and I have loved (almost) every minute of it. I miss it dearly. I wish I could forget about it and
re-discover the whole thing again
, I have never had an experience with a video game like I have had
with the Dayz Epoch mod, all the other Dayz mods and Arma altogether, and I have been gaming since the commodore 64 was released! (1982)

That server will remain nameless, but every now and then it comes back under the same name, using a pre-built
server pack, then disappears until next time, like a vampire.

      Hey,
       
      Im looking for a way to automaticly restart my Dayz Epoch server after a few hours.
      I already looked at some tutorials/scripts and stuff.
      But there all talking about this scheduler.xml file, but i dont have that.
      Do i need to create it myself? or can some one link me to an updated BEC restarts tutorial?
       
      Thank you for your time

      Hy,
       
      I have downloaded some custom bases, and 'installed' them on my server.
      But i have no idea why there not spawning. Because only the first custom base i installed is spawning.
      And when i try to add another custom map additions, there just not spawning. 
      Does someone have an idea what im doing wrong here?
       
      In my server.pbo, i have a "buildings" folder, with all the Custom bases .sqf files. Except from the NorthWestAirfield.sqf i got that in a diffirent folder called "mapaddons", but i dont understand why that one is spawning but the otherones aren't?
      In my server_functions all the way in the bottom i got the usual:
      //MapAddons execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\mapaddons\NorthWestAirfield.sqf"; execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\buildings\NEAF_S4M.sqf"; execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\buildings\traderstary.sqf"; execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\buildings\novy.sqf"; execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\buildings\dichina.sqf"; execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\buildings\bor.sqf"; My server RTP: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1v6eqk9r1fowrsq/arma2oaserver.RPT?dl=0
       
      Thank you very much for you time!
      (PS, im still a bit noobish)

      Hey,
      Thank you for checking out my post.
      I purchased a server a few days ago and if i got it up and running, i would love to make my own Dayz Epoch server. (1.0.6)
      But i have no idea where to start, and if there are pacific files i need to download.
      I hope you guys could help me out!
       
      Thank you for your time.

      -- OLD THREAT -- SOLVED!

      Hello guys,

      I have a question about spawning my gear on login. I want my default gear dependend on the amount of humanity. i'm currently working in the file: z\dayz_server\compile\server_playerLogin.sqf
      But i cant get a reach on how to get that variable in the server. I dont know how to atleast. I've tried alot of variables like:
      player getVariable['humanity',0]; which gives me <NULL>
      and trying to debug _playerObj and_primary without luck.. server just crashes without any notification.
      Here was my line of code to debug that:
      diag_log format["object _playerObj: %1",_playerObj]; diag_log format["object _primary: %1",_primary]; does anyone know how to get that humanity variable ? i want to make a switch statement in the if statement here:

       
      if (!_isNew) then { //RETURNING CHARACTER _inventory = _primary select 4; _backpack = _primary select 5; _survival = _primary select 6; _CharacterCoins = _primary select 7; _model = _primary select 8; _group = _primary select 9; _playerCoins = _primary select 10; _BankCoins = _primary select 11; _hiveVer = _primary select 12; if !(_model in AllPlayers) then {_model = "Survivor2_DZ";}; } else { _isInfected = if (DZE_PlayerZed) then {_primary select 3} else {0}; _model = _primary select 4; _group = _primary select 5; _playerCoins = _primary select 6; _BankCoins = _primary select 7; _hiveVer = _primary select 8; if (isNil "_model") then { _model = "Survivor2_DZ"; } else { if (_model == "") then {_model = "Survivor2_DZ";}; }; //Record initial inventory only if not player zombie if (_isInfected != 1) then { _config = configFile >> "CfgSurvival" >> "Inventory" >> "Default"; _mags = getArray (_config >> "magazines"); _wpns = getArray (_config >> "weapons"); _bcpk = getText (_config >> "backpack"); // Switch statement right here if (!isNil "DefaultMagazines") then {_mags = DefaultMagazines;}; if (!isNil "DefaultWeapons") then {_wpns = DefaultWeapons;}; if (!isNil "DefaultBackpack") then {_bcpk = DefaultBackpack;}; //Wait for HIVE to be free _key = format["CHILD:203:%1:%2:%3:",_charID,[_wpns,_mags],[_bcpk,[],[]]]; _key call server_hiveWrite; }; Something like:
       
      if (!_isNew) then { //RETURNING CHARACTER _inventory = _primary select 4; _backpack = _primary select 5; _survival = _primary select 6; _CharacterCoins = _primary select 7; _model = _primary select 8; _group = _primary select 9; _playerCoins = _primary select 10; _BankCoins = _primary select 11; _hiveVer = _primary select 12; if !(_model in AllPlayers) then {_model = "Survivor2_DZ";}; } else { _isInfected = if (DZE_PlayerZed) then {_primary select 3} else {0}; _model = _primary select 4; _group = _primary select 5; _playerCoins = _primary select 6; _BankCoins = _primary select 7; _hiveVer = _primary select 8; if (isNil "_model") then { _model = "Survivor2_DZ"; } else { if (_model == "") then {_model = "Survivor2_DZ";}; }; //Record initial inventory only if not player zombie if (_isInfected != 1) then { _config = configFile >> "CfgSurvival" >> "Inventory" >> "Default"; _mags = getArray (_config >> "magazines"); _wpns = getArray (_config >> "weapons"); _bcpk = getText (_config >> "backpack"); // * CUSTOM LOADOUT SWITCHCASE! * switch (true) do { case(_humanity >= 5000): { DefaultMagazines = ["itemMap" //etc...]; }; }; if (!isNil "DefaultMagazines") then {_mags = DefaultMagazines;}; if (!isNil "DefaultWeapons") then {_wpns = DefaultWeapons;}; if (!isNil "DefaultBackpack") then {_bcpk = DefaultBackpack;}; //Wait for HIVE to be free _key = format["CHILD:203:%1:%2:%3:",_charID,[_wpns,_mags],[_bcpk,[],[]]]; _key call server_hiveWrite; }; };
