having 4 "rounds" per restart, possible?

« posted: Aug 15, 2015, 11:15 PM »
I am looking to have 15 minute rounds for a close combat server I have made.

So the server restarts at 2pm for example, then over the hour 4 "rounds" happen and everyone goes back to the lobby and then load back in again after each 15 minute round.

Is this even possible?

What are you on about? What kind of rounds?

Wasteland is a persistent mission without rounds.

I'm using Wastland to build CoD style team deathmatch, where players have a spawn in a CQC zone, when they die they spawn back in. Was thinking it would be nice to split each hour restart into rounds. might not be possible but it would be cool :)

This is what you want:  http://store.steampowered.com/app/730/

Just download, install and connect to a server.

I think this is the word post ever. If you would look through the forum there IS a lot of help.
But you want to change Wasteland into CoD. This isn't CoD and there are already deathmatch mods out there.

Thanks for your excellent comment eldrich I appreciate your reply greatly, Its nothing to do with "not getting the answer I was looking for" and all about getting a dickhead response to a serious question! Everyone else has been helpful but I was warned that there are some people on this forum who don't like new people. I found one, please don't make that 2

I'm not changing it into CoD LouD, im making an arma map everyone loved, nothing more! and WL was a good base to put it on. As for worst post ever.... ever?

Wasteland is nothing like COD not even remotely, you really do need to seek help on armaholic to see if anyone is willing to write it although i wouldn't think it too hard, two teams 15mins matches jeeze you could even knock something up yourself in the editor for you mates to play on.

The server is up, map designed, and its getting some good reviews :) Arma is not like CoD, you're right, but its something people have been talking about and they wanted to play Arma, in a DM setting on that map, so I built it.

Its very much the Arma feel but you can see its took inspiration from Nuke Town, but its nice just having somewhere to thrash out for a couple of hours in a small space.

Pic below, I'm quite proud of it as its been a lot of work.

I didn't say Arma is like COD i said its not like Wasteland. Wasteland is quite a heavy mod (term used loosely) mission to run what you were asking, but good luck anyhow

I thought Wasteland was the right base, but after I started pulling things out of it, I realise that It might not have been lol, but too much went into it to start again and it runs nice :)

Come on, buddy.  Don’t be like that.  My CS:GO post was a joke... with a smilie.  I posted it because it sounds like that's exactly the game you're trying to create (for some reason) with A3Wasteland.

As for being ‘awkward’ my rule is, "If you want assistance, be respectful of other people's time and attention." 

You’ve shown up on the A3Wasteland forums asking for help to code up something that is almost entirely unlike the A3Wasteland mission so you can be pretty sure you're wasting most people's time here.  Why should anyone rush to help you when you can’t do them the courtesy of not wasting their time?  And now you’re compounding your problems further by getting prickly towards the people you want help from.

Without exception, I have found everyone on these forums to be patient, helpful and respectful.  It’s safe to assume the problem here is an off-topic post from someone with a sense of entitlement. 

Good luck with your mission.
