noDLC parameter in storeConfig.sqf

Hello,

What does the noDLC parameter at the end of the DLC gear and vehicles do in the storeConfig.sqf file? I'm looking at A3Wasteland Tanoa v1.4d

Sometimes, the game config will say that some item belongs to a paid DLC, however purchase is not required to use the item without restriction, like the MAAWS launcher for example.

I wanted the store list to display DLC icons, but only if DLC purchase is necessary to use the item without restriction. To accomplish this, I created the "noDLC" flag to explicitly hide the DLC icon from the store list.

I had to manually test every DLC item with the DLCs disabled to determine their usage restriction.
