Adding Custom loot crates when using DZAI mission system.

Recommended Posts

I know of some questions in the forums regarding custom loot crates with available missions systems. I have managed to create a custom loot crate thanks to @DAmNRelentless help, that randomizes items and weapons from user customizable arrays and integrate this with the mission system. This for the time being works for DZAI on Epoch 

Following is my custom lootcrate.sqf , all the classnames used is from the official epoch github repo with thanks to @salival found >here<

if (isServer) then {

// Delete if crate exists
deleteVehicle _vehicle_999999; 

//Then recreate it at the same position.
_vehicle_999999 = objNull;

	while {true} do {
		_refreshTime = 180;
		_this = createVehicle ["TKVehicleBox_EP1", [726.63354, 9610.8154, 0], [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"];
		_vehicle_999999 = _this;
		_this setDir 20;
		_vehicle_999999 setVariable ["ObjectID","1",true];
		_vehicle_999999 setVariable ["permaLoot",true];
		_vehicle_999999 allowDamage false;

		//Clears the possible random content from the crate
		clearWeaponCargoGlobal _this;
		clearMagazineCargoGlobal _this;

//All items and Weapons arrays. User customizable.

		_weaponAmmoArray = [[["DMR_DZ",2],["20Rnd_762x51_DMR",5]],
		_toolArray = [["ItemEtool",5],

		_magazineArray = [["150Rnd_127x107_DSHKM",7],

		_gemArray = [["ItemEmerald",2],

		_counterWeaponsAmmo = 0;

//Random Crate filling

		while {_counterWeaponsAmmo < 5} do {
			_randomWeapAmmo = _weaponAmmoArray call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;
			_weaponAmmoArray = _weaponAmmoArray - _randomWeapAmmo;
			_weapon = _randomWeapAmmo select 0;
			_ammo = _randomWeapAmmo select 1;
			_randomAmmo = round(random(_ammo select 1));
			_ammo set[1,_randomAmmo];
			_this addWeaponCargoGlobal _weapon;
			_this addMagazineCargoGlobal _ammo;
			_counterWeaponsAmmo = _counterWeaponsAmmo + 1;
		_counterTool = 0;
		while {_counterTool < 2} do {
			_randomTool = _toolArray call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;
			_tooldArray = _toolArray - _randomTool;
			_this addMagazineCargoGlobal _randomTool;
			_counterTool = _counterTool + 1;
		_counterMagazine = 0;
		while {_counterMagazine < 25} do {
			_randomMagazine = _magazineArray call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;
			_magazineArray = _magazineArray - _randomMagazine;
			_this addMagazineCargoGlobal _randomMagazine;
			_counterMagazine = _counterMagazine + 1;
		_counterGem = 0;
		while {_counterGem < 3} do {
			_randomGem = _gemArray call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;
			_gemArray = _gemArray - _randomGem;
			_this addMagazineCargoGlobal _randomGem;
			_counterGem = _counterGem + 1;
	sleep _refreshTime;


From here I have added the following script to my custom DZAI spawns found in \z\addons\dayz_server\DZAI\init\world_spawn_configs\custom_spawns\cust_spawns_panthera2.sqf. Obviously you will use the sqf appropriate to your map etc.

["staticspawn",10,2,true] call DZAI_spawn_units;

if {DZAI_spawn_units && DZAI_despawnWait == true} then {
	execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\custom\lootcrate.sqf";

This method might need some tweaking and someone else might have a more effective way of doing this, but for me this works perfectly. Fully tested with random loot spawns after new AI group spawned.

      Simple but fun little script I put together awhile ago.
      What it does? It is bound to a object in this case "ItemObsidian" as a right click, but can be changed to whatever you want. It then will sends out a message to the players on the server and marks the player with red smoke and a marker on the map.
      The player will then get 2 mins of god mod acting like the amour. Once the amour takes damage (All it is is a countdown timer really) The god mode is then disabled so they can be killed.
      I'm still working on this and will update it when it is done. If any of you better scriptwriters then myself ( I'm still a noob lol) have any ideas on how to improve this? contact me so I can give you credit in the update :)
      Known bugs:
      marker sometimes stays on map Credits to : @Schalldampfer  For helping me understand map markers
      Install: Place this in your scripts folder name it something like Jugg.sqf
