*************************************************
*Due to a bug with ammo box fill scripts and the Alpha version there will be missions (that use a fill script) which will cause lag running on the server, especially at higher player counts.


If you want to check out some missions on your own and perhaps post your results here (ie: does it suck? how many players? COOP or DM?)


Feedback re: missions or server setup would be appreciated.

is the CQB Spawn thing set for ALL the towns or just individual towns? because 20% might be good for the main town but perhaps to much for the smaller one? if that makes sense at all...

saying that, is 100% the same number allocated to all towns no matter the size? or do they scale up/down depending on how much squares there are?

i believe that the CQB thing spawns enemies depending on the size of the town and the hostile presence.

From the MSO manual re: CQB populator:

CQB_EnPop - Uses houses and fortification as spawnpoints, provides Close Quater Combat and brings
a new dimension to MSO. If players gets in range AI is spawned in houses, if out of range they are
moving back to their houses and get deleted (incl. groups). Uses a Serverside Garbage Collector, cleared
positions are stored to PDB.

Settings /// CQB AI Limit: Max. 10 AI spawned local on each client (20 players x 10 AI = 200 AI in crowded areas), ?Off? means the spawnpoint is suspended after 1 group has spawned

(recommended) /// CQB Group limit: Groupcount must be lower than this limit for CQB to spawn. Recommended settings are 10% / off / off (not change that until you know what you do). Use markers ammo and ammo_1 for a safezone of at least 1000 mtrs around base (it uses safe-zone setting from rmm_enpop or falls back to 1000 default). You have the option to place additional 10 Blacklist-markers on map, with name CQB_BL0 - CQB_BL9 for blacklists of 500m.


Spawns in any buildings/structures not just towns. More buildings = more spawns. More players in area = more spawns.

It's an overall setting which also depends on the number of players in the area

Current settings are 20% pop with CQB AI Limit and CQB Group Limits OFF

From what I've read this mission is optimized for higher player counts (see the video for 61 player COOP - http://youtu.be/WBhSXDctY-g ) After testing yesterday the server was still at 45'ish FPS after about 2 hours.

I'll upload a newer version tonight with CQB cranked up to 40% and we'll see how it runs - or if there is an admin on today you can try restarting the server, go into paramters, and change the CQB Populator to 40% (don't change anything else for now)

Is there any way to increase the time it takes for enemy bodies to disappear? trying to loot enemies for ammo and weapons is near impossible due to them despawning moments after they have been killed.

I don't see our server in the browser list? And what about removing PW so we can fill the server?

^ it should be there if you filter for Veterans

Sometimes gamespy doesn't show the A2 servers either I think it is just that gamespy sucks :)

The only problem with removing the password now is we have no admin control over the server. The only way to deal with idiots is to actually be on the server and logged in as admin, kick them from the server, manually write down their Arma GUID, and ban them later.

Now if we have a bunch of VGs on the server we can open it up but for general use I don't think it's a good idea at the moment.

I've been updating my signatures on various forums to pimp our server but they all say you must join TS for the password. What's great is that players are actually doing that to play on our server.. that never usually happens.

Server works good, no lag spikes, fps was 50 to 30 (which is good in my book) with smooth transitions over time, no sudden drops. Can't see the point of dynamic sandbox mission though, squares turn back to red in a matter of minutes. Sense of accomplishment is nowhere to be seen 8((

Tried to play with CQB 20% and 40%.
It was pretty much the same but i was playing alone/with few people.
It seems that large AOs always have hostiles, few red squares are always empty and other are inhabited sometimes.

Yeah the red squares are a bit weird.... they are a leftover of another mission I think and aren't in any way connected to the AI spawning scripts in this mission.. they are just there to show red or blue markers. I think the way the CQB thing works in MSO is a % chance of spawning per building per player...so if it's just a few guys around a small house and shed it probably won't spawn much if anything.

..and yeah there isn't much of an 'end game' with this type of mission. I'm sure that will change in future updates.


Forgot MSO has a MP rights feature where only approved UIDs are allowed to fly. Gonna test this out.

Asked MSO Devs about dead bodies staying longer... can't figure it out myself

"Search for deleteVehicle keyword in the CQB module and you should find it. Technically, you could comment it out as the standard Garbage Collector will remove dead bodies if they have been there for 5 mins and there are no players within 500m of the dead body. "

Updated to v1.4c today

-added mortar pit
-tried the MSO UID thing to limit pilots to certain players but it didn't work (will spend more time on it or look for other solution)
-updated VAS ammobox script
-removed RSLO Loadout manager (VAS has same feature now)


Tweaked the profile settings for Veteran mode - removed group icons, adjusted AI skill and precision, other tweaks

Thanks for the feedback guys and Outlanders for testing

McKillem - are you MadRobert on teamspeak?

If you want to try a harder DAC version there is a mission called Dynamic War Sandbox v14c DAC available on the server for testing.

Basically more patrols covering the island north and centre... beefed up a few key areas. DAC Groups will respawn (how many times? I'll never tell)

Nothing just join and play my friend!!!

If you tried to join yesterday and got kicked that was a problem with the mission but it has been fixed now (no longer requires CBA). If you were playing last week and got horrible lag give it a try again most of the lag problems have been fixed.


Check 2nd post in thread - added optional Client Side addons pack
