Crash sites are spawned only once right after restart, you can modify number of these sites of course. Try latest modified script on last page.

I don't know what kind of mission you use, if you don't have yet some, you can try some from this thread.
You can modify mission spawn time in config, of course.

      Hi guys, need a few updates for the vehicle garage if possible. I need to limit the amount of vehicles per player... 

      Also need to stop overpowered vehicles being stored in the garage. I have updated my player_storeVehicle.sqf with the following code but it's not working, it still stores them : 

      // Developed by [GZA] David for German Zombie Apocalypse Servers (https://zombieapo.eu/) private["_unit","_obj","_wogear","_charID","_objectID","_keyavailable","_keyColor","_added","_objectUID","_key","_class","_noStore"]; if(lbCurSel 3802 == -1) exitWith {hint "No Vehicle selected"}; _unit = player; _obj = StoreVehicleList select (lbCurSel 3802); StoreVehicleList = nil; _wogear = _this select 0; closeDialog 0; _noStore = _obj in ["AH64D"]; if (_noStore) exitWith { cutText ["Woah, that vehicle is too overpowered. You can't store that here!", "PLAIN DOWN"]; }; _charID = _obj getVariable ["CharacterID","0"]; _objectID = _obj getVariable ["ObjectID","0"]; _objectUID = _obj getVariable ["ObjectUID","0"]; if (_objectID == "1") exitWith {cutText ["Can not store mission vehicle.", "PLAIN DOWN"];}; // Check for mission vehicle WAI Script _keyavailable = false; _keyColor = ["ItemKeyYellow","ItemKeyBlue","ItemKeyRed","ItemKeyGreen","ItemKeyBlack"]; if(_charID != "0") then { { if (configName(inheritsFrom(configFile >> "CfgWeapons" >> _x)) in _keyColor) then { if (str(getNumber(configFile >> "CfgWeapons" >> _x >> "keyid")) == _charID) then { _key = _x; _keyavailable = true; }; }; } count (items _unit); } else {_keyavailable = true;}; if (!_keyavailable) exitWith {cutText ["You need the key of the vehicle.", "PLAIN DOWN"];}; _added = false; if (!_wogear) then { _added = [player, Pricegear] call SC_fnc_removeCoins; } else {_added = true;}; Pricegear = nil; if(!_added) exitWith {cutText ["You don't have enough money.", "PLAIN DOWN"];}; if(_charID != "0") then { [_unit,_key] call BIS_fnc_invRemove; cutText ["Key removed!", "PLAIN DOWN"]; }; _obj setvehiclelock "locked"; PVDZE_storeVehicle = [_obj, _unit, _wogear]; publicVariableServer "PVDZE_storeVehicle"; waitUntil {!isNil "PVDZE_storeVehicleResult"}; PVDZ_obj_Destroy = [_objectID,_objectUID,_unit]; publicVariableServer "PVDZ_obj_Destroy"; deleteVehicle _obj; PVDZE_storeVehicleResult = nil; sleep 2; cutText ["Stored Vehicle in Garage.", "PLAIN DOWN"]; Also would be nice to maybe implement an sql event which removes them out the garage after 14 days if anyone could write that? 

      Merci ! xD

      Howdy folks, I asked in another thread i hijacked but wanted to elaborate a bit so here i am. The Epoch 1.0.6 server is going well. it's a little tough finding information regarding changes so i hope i am not repeating too much. You have all been an excellent help so far.
      I am looking for a way to configure what gets lifted and what does the lifting with the current heli lift system and remove the requirement for a person on the ground or a way to use the previous system which is compatible with 1.0.6. R3F something and something, lol.
      I also seem to remember some script which allows bicycles to be put away in your pocket or something. Any ideas?
      Thanks again and I hope all is well with you.

      If it worked and you enjoy it, i ask for a donation. Thankyou!
      OBS: The money rewards will only work if you have the coins script.
      1 - Put the script bellow on server side.

      Hi there!
                A few days ago I logged in just to see my GhostHawk and Little Bird gone. Yet, I can't see any method of stealing them other than parachuting. I thought some of you might help me protect my choppers better. 
                For the GhostHawk I had a 2x3 helipad with removed stairs and walls between the rotors, as for the little bird just one platform with the stairs removed, but no wall in the rotor.

      Hey guys,
      I created this script to deal with the issue where helicopter and vehicles sometimes explode when a player gets into the pilot seat or when the locality changes on the vehicle.
      I have been running it on my server and it seems to be working OK and haven't had any noticeable FPS issues. 
      You can adjust the sleep seconds to your liking but it works for me as it currently stands.

      Installation instructions (also included in the file)
      BE filters:
                  append !="added_EHProtect" !="GotIn" !="LocalChanged"
              scripts.txt (note, your line numbers might differ
                  line 22: append !="_x allowDamage true;" !="_vehicle allowDamage false"
                  line 48: append !="_x setDamage 0;"
                  if you get kicked for addEventHandler then add
                  line 53: !="_x addEventHandler [\"GetIn\", {_this call fn_handleGetIn;}];" !="_x addEventHandler [\"Local\", {_this call fn_handleLocal;}];"
              Copy into your scripts folder, add this line to your init.sqf, execVM \"scripts\OX3_GetInProtect.sqf";
      Hope this helps. Please let me know of any issues.  :)
      I removed the two setdamage lines from the script as they were causing some people BE kicks. They are not really required.
