Not sure if it is part of the new server update or an addons so my apology if I am asking at the wrong place.

Problem: After landing, I did an emergency eject (faster way to get out) while the vehicle was locked. I am now trying to unlock it and can't get the option in the scrolling menu. General store doesn't provide a lockpick either. Is it a code problems or the server did not configure the option right?

This is probably because the server you play on does not have a lockpick script. When you lock a non owned (spawned) vehicle from the inside and do an emergency eject there will be no unlock option because the vehicle has no owner.
On my server we have a lockpick script.

Without looking at the script that handles "emergency eject" i guess its possible to set the vehicles lock to unlocked at the same time, did the same which was rather annoying getting stranded in the middle of nowhere =).

Is there a command i can add into the forceeject.sqf to refer to the va_functions.sqf to the part to activate the unlock action?

Also, Can you give a link to provide lockpicks? I don't think we even got the lockpicking script in yet in our server.
