Hey everyone, so I've been running ARMA servers for about 7 years now, ARMA 2 and ARMA 3. I've never found a tool which automatically provisions, manages updating, replaces keys, maps mods and runs a server all in one.

I'm posting this here for two reasons. 1. I'd like people to give it a go and let me know about any issues they come across and 2. I'm sure there's a heap of talented developers here who are going to probably be able to do this 1000x better than me :D and can tell me how to do it better or just improve it. I'm no dev, just a scripter.

You can run it unattended or in a Powershell ISE Window and get prompted, just change the variable at the top.

If you're running it unattended make sure to change the flag at the top, you can then run it from a scheduled task. There's a force stop option in the script, use it carefully. Some missions require manual saving.

Be mindful I set it to force admin use as the symlinking requires it.

If this isn't the correct section I'm sorry, please don't kill me, I searched for a server tools section and couldn't see one for ARMA 3.
