Not sure where to ask this .. I did a search and I am either using the wrong terminology or not searching the right question.

The map name is co30 DominOA! ACE West Revive [2.54] - we just started the server

(We're noobs to owning a server btw)


When we load up there are no A10s or Apaches .. which some would like, but we would like to have them.

I am sure we have seen them on the same maps ... is this an add on?? or another mod?? or setting?

If it is a mod/add on or setting, can some share the link or setting?

The map we have has lots of targets that would benefit from a conversation with a A10/Apache.

Do we need to use another map? and not ACE OA?

Any help would be appreciated!!

High Talon and welcome to ArmaHolic *HI*

Anyways to answer your question, open the .pbo up and place inside your other profiles > yourname > missions
then in ArmA2 or ArmA2OA go in to the editor and load it up in there, there you will be able to edit the mission, whats
on it and etc, you can add the A10 and Apache BUT* you will also need to edit the script in the missions folder for
things like "Vehicle respawn" if it was to get blown up for instance.

Hope that helps.

Thanks DarkXess ..

I was getting my hopes up there ... but I think that editing script is WAY beyond my skill set at the moment - lol


Looks like I may need to do some research ...

I never could edit scripts either, untill when you open up the scripts and see how others made them, just follow on from another vehical or aircraft that is already on the map and copy that, then change the names of the one your editing to the one you want etc... you can still place units on the map, just once they are destroyed they wouldnt respawn back etc...

So, would work ok for a while, untill you run out of what things you need, hehe...

DarkXess, can you recommend a tutorial or could you write one to explain how to convert those missions. I see you have converted Domination and I would like to do one for myself.

I know your problem straight away and it doesnt involve scripting, you are playing your game in Ranked (although this doesnt matter) you have to earn your vehicles, you dont get them straight away, that would be too easy, you need to start completing main and secondary objectives :-)

Take this advice from a Veteren of the Domination GM (and man does it get boring ;-) )

With some searching using the search function :-| I found this below link, which Dark posted as a reply to another domi editing question.

So if we don't add these "changes" in the mission folder and have the server settings set to delete all wrecks after 30 minutes, can the wreck still be saved if it gets repaired before it's scheduled for deletion?

Thanks
