Adding buildings to a Wasteland Server?

Hi all, 1st time Wasteland server owner :)

I need a little help if possible, I need to know how to add map content and keep it server side.

Most important thing is that it does run server side, I change things all the time and I don't want players downloading mission files multiple times a day,

I had a server with another mod and I was used to the file system, but in WL I'm not and I'm kinda lost a little and cant work out how to do it!  :-\
 

If I needed the below sample selection on the server, running server side how would I do it? (this is the output from M3Editor) once this works I can go an pad it out from there  :D

 
    ["Land_Pavement_wide_F",[22887.7,19274,-0.0179787],308.636,[[-0.781128,0.624371,0],[0,0,1]],false],
    ["Land_Pavement_wide_F",[22890.1,19277.1,0.00686932],308.636,[[-0.781128,0.624371,0],[0,0,1]],false],
    ["Land_Pavement_wide_F",[22892.5,19280.1,-0.0423279],308.636,[[-0.781128,0.624371,0],[0,0,1]],false],
    ["Land_LampShabby_F",[22974.1,19263,0],296.818,[[-0.892444,0.451158,0],[0,0,1]],false],
    ["Land_Factory_Main_F",[22856.4,19220.5,0.0376511],129.545,[[0.771125,-0.636684,0],[0,-0,1]],false],
    ["Land_i_Shed_Ind_F",[22878.9,19364.6,0.685814],218.637,[[-0.62];
 

Thanks in advanced

Aaron

Hey there,

I use this mod: 101Editor

When installed, u can open your mission.sqm in ArmA Editor and add/place tons of things. Really TONS. Be careful: u can get lost in there.  :o

After finished, save this mission.sqm and re-put it inside u're pbo.

Hope, I understood u'r question ..

Everything u add in this mission.sqm (and then pbo) will be downloaded by client when joining the server.

You can also put GID system in your PBO and load buildings it that way.

Managed to get this working server side, its the format of.sqf that seems to be the issue, and then call if from the init.sqf and it worked. Thanks for all your help :)

Do a bit of testing, i found that loading server side files might take a couple of seconds (well maybe i called em in the wrong place) but my thought is if a player lands a chopper on such a building and the building loads after the chopper there might be a problem. But again that probably depends on when you call the external files. Pleas post how you load(call) em, would actually be good to know.

I just load them internally, on server restart, occasionally there may be an explosion or two... I haven't thought about calling them externally.
