Need help server set up

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

As you can see im a freshy, ive not played much of Arma3 but i played some epoch/ ryans zombies and fell in love :) 

I have no experience in setting up a server but enjoy the epoch version so much so i had to try to set a server up and if im honest ive been struggling (alot) , ive managed to rent a server and put epoch onto it with ryans zombies, set the time so i play in day light.

but now im having trouble with loot items not being in buildings and even though i have the zombie mod on i cant see any zombies :/  

If anybody can help me it would be really appreciated , i do have discord if that helps and i dont mind paying for your time.

I dont want anything to crazy just EPOCH and zombies with loot :D 

Bitten off more than i can chew :/

Hey, welcome to Epoch!

You posted in the Arma 2 section but we'll let you off with that.:biggrin:

To help get you started it would be good if you read this post. Just to get the gist of what setting up a server entails, and a few things you should be aware of that will help you on your way to understanding server setup.

 

In Epoch you can search things on the map with Space-bar menu,  such as trash piles - barrels - baskets - crates - boxes - garbage bins and you can find loot, but along with searching in the trash comes Toxicity and other things...

Also Lootable furniture will spawn in some buildings that will hold better loot. The furniture can spawn AFTER you have been in the building, so to test if the loot is working in its default way, run through a town then go back to the start of a town and check for loot.

 

There is another script that can be run in Epoch to put loot on the floor of buildings you can find here, many servers out there use this to enhance the loot for their setup.

Again read through the posts - especially the last few pages - as thats where the most up to date information is located.

And after all that if you still have problems, dont hesitate to ask on the EpochMod official discord where I'm sure you will find help if you need it.

Good Luck!

      I recently just started up a server through a server host and I am having trouble sorting through the files and finding what a I need to do and how to add the things I want.
      EX: 
      Traders dont have anything set up in them
      Dont have zombies
      No safezones
       
      Im just trying to run Epoch, Bornholm for the map, and the RHS stuff just for some weapon and vehicle variety, but i have no idea how to get it working. Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Outdated, does not work with Epoch 1.0.7
      DEPLOYABLE BIKE 2.8.2
      all of this information is available in an easier-to-read format on github pages>>
      version 2.8.2 updates the code to work with Epoch Mod 1.0.6. Thanks @ebaydayz!
      version 2.8.1 should hopefully fix the long-standing non-moving-bike problem! Thanks @SchwEde!
      FYI: 2.8.0 adds the _condition and _ammo parameters to the config array so you will need to add a value for these parameter in each record of the DZE_DEPLOYABLES_CONFIG array in the appropriate spot if you are upgrading from 2.6
       
      Out of the box, it adds a deployable bike with a right click action on a toolbox and a couple other neat deployables.
      Really, it can be used to deploy just about anything. See the configuration section below.
      For some samples of what it can do, check out this gallery on imgur
       
      Installation
      download the files extract the addons and overwrites folder from the downloaded zip file into your mission file root find this line in your mission file init.sqf (warning: if you have a custom compiles file, find that line instead of the one below!) call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "\z\addons\dayz_code\init\compiles.sqf"; place this line directly after the line you found call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "addons\bike\init.sqf"; edit addons\bike\config.sqf to change some options or add different deployables (see configuration section for more info) Warning:
      due to the way the way arma handles numbers and the way addon is coded, using the save-to-database option may not allow you to re-pack some objects if you have Character ID's over 500,000 (which I don't think will be an issue for 99.99% of people).  
      Adding Your Own Custom Actions
      If you use another right click method like extra_rc.hpp and want to switch to my method, see my click actions configuration github page.
      The click actions script is included in the deploy script as part of the core, so you don't need to download anything, just follow the instructions for adding your own actions.
      * note: before attempting to troubleshoot issues with adding your own actions, make sure you are using the most recent version of the addon.
       
      Configuration
      This addon is highly configurable, you can deploy just about anything, not just bikes.
      open addons\bike\config.sqf and edit the array to add your own deployables.
       
      DZE_DEPLOYABLES_CONFIG format -- (note no comma after last array entry)
      DZE_DEPLOYABLES_CONFIG = [ [_clickItem,_deployOffset,_packDistance,_damageLimit,_packAny,_cargo,_hive,_plot,_simulation,_deployables,_near,_parts], [_clickItem,_deployOffset,_packDistance,_damageLimit,_packAny,_cargo,_hive,_plot,_simulation,_deployables,_near,_parts], [...more stuff here...] ]; DZE_DEPLOYABLES_CONFIG array values (view on github to read easier):
      parameter | description | type | example --------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------|--------|-------- _clickItem | class name of the item to click on | string | "ItemToolbox" _deployOffset | [_side,_front,_up] array to offset the deployable when buiding | array | [0,2,1] _packDistance | how close does the packer need to be to pack the object? | number | 5 _damageLimit | item can't be repacked if damage is > this. (-1 = no re-packing) | number | 0.1 _packAny | can anyone repack the deployable? | bool | false _cargo | clear the cargo of the deployable? | bool | false _ammo | should vehicle ammo be cleared? (does not persist through restart) | bool | true _hive | write deployable to database? | bool | false _plot | require a plot from the owner to build the deployable? | bool | false _simulation | enable simulation (movement/damage) for the object? (true for cars) | bool | true _road | enable road building for this object? | bool | true _deployables | array of class names that can be deployed with this method | array | ["MMT_Civ"] _near | array of items required nearby to build (workshop/fire/fueltank) | array | [] _parts | array of parts required to build (will be taken from player) | array | ["ItemToolbox"] _condition | string of code to evaluate to determine whether action is shown | string | "!(isNull player) && {(getPlayerUID player) in DZE_DEPLOYABLE_ADMINS}" DZE_DEPLOYABLE_NAME_MAP array -- allows you to rename the deployable (on the right click/messages)
      format (note no comma after last array entry)
      DZE_DEPLOYABLE_NAME_MAP = [ [_class,_name], [_class,_name], [... more ...] ];  array parameters
      parameter    | description                                                         |  type  | example --------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------|--------|-------- _class        | class name of the item you want to replace the name of              | string | "Notebook" _name         | new name to display when right clicking                             | string | "Macbook Pro" Change Log
      version | change --------|------- 2.8.2 | updates for 1.0.6! Thanks @ebaydayz! 2.8.1 | fix from SchwEde that should fix bike not moving. Thanks @SchwEde! 2.8.0 | option to clear vehicle ammo 2.7.1 | better exit reasons 2.7.0 | option to add condition for showing action in config 2.6.1 | fix for unrideable bikes 2.6.0 | road building options, deployable name mapping 2.5.1  | fix a bug where preview items would sometimes disappear  2.5.0  | now uses a modified epoch building system to deploy the objects  2.4.3  | better click actions build conflict detection  2.4.2  | updated for new click actions handler build  2.4.1  | fixed deployables spawning in locked after restart  2.4.0  | multi-part deployables. yay!  2.3.1  | big fix on packing temp objects  2.3.0  | optional saving to database with post-restart memory of deployed items (see warning below about this) | configurable damage limits on re-packing | admin list for packing/deploying instantly & being able to remove all deployables  2.2.1  | positioning fix for deployed items  2.2.0  | option for clearing cargo of spawned items  2.1.0  | change way dependency call is made, only one line needed in init.sqf now for setup  2.0.0  | major update, allow multiple deployables, pretty much any class  1.1.0  | configuration options / code optimization  1.0.0  | release Issues/FAQ
