Hello guys,

my mates and i are considering about a new server-concept but we are not sure if this is possible. We want to give players the possibility to switch between our servers right out of the game,
without:
    disconnect
    lobby
    server browser
    search for server
    connect

It should be like:
    go to trade
    book a flight
    get some fancy loadingscreen
    join on second map


We are running currently 2 servers with exilemod, one with altis, one with tanoa. The idea is, to place a trader at the terminal of Altis and "book a flight" to Tanoa and inversely (add-action to trader?). Some ideas how to solve that?
The second problem is, how to connect the two SQL-DB's but this is currently a irrelevant.

So if someone has a good idea, BRING IT ON *YAHOO*

I don't think theres a direct way for it (maybe with an extension), you could however try the following:

hintC composeText["Click the following link to go to the other server:", lineBreak, "<a underline='true' color='#0000FF' href='steam://connect/SERVER_IP_HERE'>Book a flight to the other server.</a>"];

That will open a textnotification with a link. That link is a steam direct-connect link, which might just work.

Upon using the action you could also save a variable in the users profile so the other server knows to spawn him at the airport when he joins.


Oh and I'd say this topic belongs in the scripting section.

There are a lot of very capable people on this forum, willing to spend some of their time to help you out. So if you have a problem, it surely isn't too much to ask that you atleast take the time to describe it properly. Thanks.

Would make sense to have both servers running with the same modset, otherwise you'll run into problem.
