You shouldn't need to add this folder anywhere or load it as a mod, just stick it in the ArmA root folder (where you have your arma3server.exe).

Anyway, does any of you other setting take effect, like starting money? if not the mission probably falls back on the default_config.sqf (within the mission .pbo or folder). If it uses the deafult_config.sqf and not you main_config.sqf from your A3Wasteland_settings folder its (the A3Wasteland_settings folder) probably its probably in the wrong place or accidentally got the wrong name.

a common mistake for windows hosters is the "hidden known file extensions" issue ;)


make sure it isnt named .sqf.txt  by accident :)  disable hiding of known file extensions in your folder options and check

I have it saved in appropriate file typed, but nothing whatsoever seems to be taking any effect in the mission;
Honestly im experiencing so many fails with the new update.

Ill take a wild guess that the 3779 APERSBoundingMines you added to the mission.sqf might cause some issues for your performance (i get half the server FPS of what i get from a vanilla mission).

However it seems you added 10 or so new spawn towns to towns.sqf. and didn't create markers for them in mission.sqf so thats why you get spawncircles at 0,0.

Anyway you mission loads up for me on my testserver and takes the external settings file just fine for me (gave me 1m in startmoney to test)

To add the extra towns you will need to add the markers in the mission.sqm. I think i've added all them in our mission.
These are the towns:

Here's 10 extra mission locations while were at it :)

Check out the mission.sqm file in this commit for what I think are some good towns and mission locations.  I've added 20 missions and 25 towns.
