  1. So making a map with bots has a size limit to the amount of ground the AI can cover before the game crashes. the size varies map to map with things like whether it is a forest, urban or desert map. making bots move on water counts for nothing because there's nothing for them to avoid.

    As a general rule of thumb, a 1km can have bots on 100% of it, 2km is 40-60% and a 4km is 15-20%. This is why maps have a lot of areas that you don't play coop on especially 4km maps like shijia, Vadso or saaremaa always focus on the same areas.


  2. Poll time,

    Choose the map that you enjoy but hate the coop

    Example, you love Operation Marlin as a map but you hate playing coop because it's pretty boring for most of the game. Not, You hate tad sae because it's dark. There's too many trees on Ia Drang etc.

    I've made the poll multiple choice, but try and limit it to a few choices to make it obvious which map is shit.

    If you aren't even sure what maps are what gallery is here https://www.realitymod.com/mapgallery/#!/

    Maps that aren't included are maps that either
    A ) I can't do anything more than what is already there. (Tad Sae, Burning Sands, Muttrah etc)
    B ) I don't have the motivation to fix (Vietnam, Saarema etc)

    The poll is not for things like swap APC for a tank, this is more for a complete scrapping and start over. If you have suggestions like an asset swap, post it in this thread cause I'll consider everything, but the poll is not for that.

    Assume they are all the STD Layers

  3. So gonna close this issue. It's been found to be a BF2 engine issue. Sadly there's nothing that can be done against it.

    If you don't believe me you can find a BF2 copy and install a 64 player mod and create local servers. The issue will occur after a few map changes.

    I'll look into some changes to try and make it occur less frequently. (removing osprey on 2km maps, jets on bamyam and silent eagle removal/base swapping etc)

    As for what happens when someone deliberately crashes the server. Make a note of the map/player and we can check the logs and ban. Accidents will happen, but with a bit of work we can try and limit the issue.


    Big thanks to everyone for the help. Bad  outcome though

  4. Thanks for doing the testing guys. Hopefully we can find a pattern or something. If you do come across a map that doesn't crash. test it after loading another map. like if Bijar din't crash go Bijar>Khamisiyah>Bijar If we can get a map that doesn't crash we can assume it is a map related crash, otherwise it's probably python, BF2, whatever else.

  5. I never tested deployment. Back when I was really trying to find the cause I found most of the time It's not map specific it's just random

    Here's a bit of the logging I did when testing. Clean server means I reset it fully. the only consistent thing was that the first map was less likely to crash after a hard reset.

    Khamisyah first map, clean server- No crash
    Khamisiyah after crash on khamisiyah - Crash
    Muttrah after Khamisiyah (clean) - Crash
    Muttrah first map, clean server - No crash
    Muttrah after crash on muttrah - crash
    Jabal after muttrah (clean) - no crash
    Marlin after jabal after muttrah (clean) - no crash
    Barracuda after Marlin after jabal after muttrah (clean) - crash
    Jabal clean server - no crash
    Jabal std after jabal alt (clean) - no crash
    Barracuda after jabal std after jabal alt (clean) - no crash
    Silent eagle after Barracuda after jabal std after jabal alt (clean) - no crash
    Silent Eagle, clean server - no crash, then crash 2 times
    Vadso after silent - Crash


    I thought about making a combat area that insta kills when you fly too close to the south border but it's not possible to do serverside.

  6. Great turnout guys had a blast! Thanks for putting up with the minor hiccup on Beirut.

    I'll make the next one harder.

    I can suggest on weekend two on Bamyan Map make a RU vs Taliban and make it like the Afghani War from 1979-1989.

    Yeah this sounds good
