i read somewhere on the forums that mentions the ability to save vehicles through the server resets and i was wondering because my team is trying to establish a base and we want to collect ammo, fuel, repair turcks, etc. and i was wondering if this was possible and if not could something like that be implemented(also limit it because stuff like t-100's are op)

We already have that function but it's disabled because of $1.000.000 spawn cash, server would be filled up with vehicles. Also, it is not cool to have a tank ready to go as soon as you login. It's more fun to go to shops, creates action.

I could theoretically allow maybe a car or regular vehicles but because we already have airdrops so it would be just pointless imho. :miooh:

Yeah, alex just posted this as well. Same answer for you, imho, it is more fun when you have to go to vehicle store on each session because it creates more action and player interaction.

Also, it would just make server lag when vehicle owners are not online because everyone don't play everyday at the same time and we have had like 4000+ players, server would be filling up with these.

Thirdly, super easy to find and destroy these. Because we have almost full server every day now, when you come back to your base, chance is that all of your vehicles are destroyed anyway. I actually did this to the blue team 2 nights ago, they had a nice big base full of stuff, I destroyed it all! *evil* :twisted: + game engine limit that you cannot have stuff in backpacks, in vehicles, they can't be saved and people get confused etc.

And if you login at base and want to get out fast, we have airdrops for chopper, quadbike and waterscooter so you are never left stranded anywhere. (Arma is running simulation without airdrops hahahha)

About collecting ammo, you can do this already. Just buy ammo crates from general store and you can fill up those with whatever gear you like and save. I do that myself. I have full gear sets in each box and when I die, I respawn, take gear and back in action fast.

I'm super tired from combat, 10 hours today :mibiggrin: but I hope I make sense?

As a side note, I DO understand your position. I mean, it's nice being able to save a few vehicles, so don't get me wrong, I like it too!... but beside the facts I mentioned above, we must balance things for not 10 players but 4000+ players and well, lag would be a big issue leaving stuff around.

There is a parking function which makes vehicles magically disappear and you can get them back when you login to server but I don't like it because, well, I don't like magic stuff magically spawning shit all over map. Having magic parachut is enough! hahahhaa... :lol: :lol: :lol:

By the way, few weeks back I had this idea to be able to set a shop in your base, like a vehicle store there that you can spawn vehicles right in your base but... I will continue on this thought tomorrow... going to sleep now... :D

I really like the sound of having your own personal shops in your base but I think it would have to be limited to lower end vehicles so you couldn't just spawn a jet or t100 all the time in safety. Also i don't think it should show up on the map because it would defeat the purpose of hiding your base :thumbup:

Yes, I agree but honestly, I have no clue how to make this happen for now! haha... although, I think the airdrop is pretty good. You have a team of 4, you can airdrop 2 quadbikes and be on your way or a chopper and fly out quick... but this definitely a subject which we'll revisit. :mrgreen:

could there be a system like the one for saving base parts where only site members can save the vehicles and then they become immobilised but would last through the sever resets?
