Good afternoon Gentlemen,

Today at approximately 8:10PM EST/ July 17, in the Tanoa server, my group and I assaulted an orange bandit patrol. After a fierce firefight with PVE and PVP, my group came out victorious. I loaded a bandit patrol truck up with as much loot as i could given the time in which the server was about to restart (aprox 5 mins). I drove the truck away to a safe location and logged out per the directions EPOCHPRO sends out over chat. When i logged back in, i was nowhere near the bandit truck i had obtained, and a team member informed me that the vehicle was not in the location where it was left. The items inside the truck were too many to list.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or has anything to do with the server restarting? Any assistance or further guidance would be highly appreciated. My name is Andrew in ARMA 3 EPOCH, and I am a member of Team America.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that's how it was intended. The vehicles that spawn for the mission are deleted on restart.

If that's the case regarding the vehicle, then so be it i guess. Just wanted to post in case this was something admins were unaware of, or if it's simply SOP for the game mode. I have, however, had troubles in the past with be logged into random spawn points, and not my last known location. That was a bit troubling too. These were both "first time" experiences I had on the Tanoa map, and no one was in Epochpro TS at the time so I couldn't verify. Thus, here we are.

Yes hello and sorry for your issues, as the script it self works and cars taken from a bandit patrol once there is a restart they get deleted and start over per say so there is not 5000 trucks on the map after each one is spawn in for the ai missions. Make sure if you do get the truck or loot from it give your self enough time to get to a trader and trade before the restaret or all will be lost. That only goes for the ai missions every thing else will save unless you buy a rental heli or car also then those will be only temp until restart, its a way to make sure i only keep a set amount of cars and helis on the map and not bog the server down with tons of cars, scripting 101 <> 13926

Roger. No issues, and makes total sense. From now on, we wont assault bandit patrols within 1 hour of restart . Thanks.
