Become part of a great team that has nothing less as its goal than to be the world's best game server provider. Keep facing new, challenging and exciting tasks at a company that values your opinion.


open positions @ Nitrado

    You have boosted the values by an incredible too big of an amount. 640 are you kidding? And you have disabled the flags, meaning in theory you want 600-640 AK101's to be picked up around the map? If you remove a 0, the server will probably still be overloaded and it wont work. Try setting it to 6, there you go way better, seeing you have flags disabled there should always be 6 AK101's around the map. After all, DayZ isnt a shooting game first and foremost, there are countless other games that gives you a smoother, better experience in that aspect. Honestly i would say youre playing the wrong game, have u tried Battlefield 4?

    I forgot to mention this also adds the cargoplane into the mix of crashsites, its pretty darn huge so you will see it from pretty darn far ;)

    If you want heliloot like LAR, VSS and such to spawn in military locations, you need to change "deloot" from 1 to 0 under the flags in the types.xml, but i would be careful of spawning in too much stuff on the map, the game is laggy as it is and i would recommend decreasing a lot, a lot a LOT of items, certain events like TrajectoryStones, AmbientHen are not only useless, but heavy on the servers.


    A general rule or tip i think should be to always remove more than you add, also when you add weapons you should rebalance them, f.ex. if you add green M4, KA101 and such, maybe lower the tier requirement for the nonspraypainted weapons and equipment. Its a long and timeconsuming process but in the end its worth it..


    Heres my current working setup, can confirm it works. You can come see for yourself in my extremely low pop server "Hardcore Survival & RP | PlusMod"


    In types.xml make sure you have these parameters:


    <type name="Wreck_Mi8">

    <nominal>0</nominal>

    <lifetime>14400</lifetime>

    <restock>0</restock>

    <min>0</min>

    <quantmin>-1</quantmin>

    <quantmax>-1</quantmax>

    <cost>100</cost>

    <flags count_in_cargo="0" count_in_hoarder="0" count_in_map="1" count_in_player="0" crafted="0" deloot="0"/>

    </type>

    <type name="Wreck_UH1Y">

    <nominal>0</nominal>

    <lifetime>14400</lifetime>

    <restock>0</restock>

    <min>0</min>

    <quantmin>-1</quantmin>

    <quantmax>-1</quantmax>

    <cost>100</cost>

    <flags count_in_cargo="0" count_in_hoarder="0" count_in_map="1" count_in_player="0" crafted="0" deloot="0"/>

    </type>

    <type name="Land_Wreck_C130J">

    <nominal>0</nominal>

    <lifetime>14400</lifetime>

    <restock>0</restock>

    <min>0</min>

    <quantmin>-1</quantmin>

    <quantmax>-1</quantmax>

    <cost>100</cost>

    <flags count_in_cargo="0" count_in_hoarder="0" count_in_map="1" count_in_player="0" crafted="0" deloot="0"/>

    </type>


    In events.xml it looks like this (Double amount of heli crashes, i think is more than enough increase)


    <event name="StaticHeliCrash">

    <nominal>6</nominal>

    <min>0</min>

    <max>0</max>

    <lifetime>2500</lifetime>

    <restock>0</restock>

    <saferadius>1000</saferadius>

    <distanceradius>1000</distanceradius>

    <cleanupradius>1000</cleanupradius>

    <secondary>InfectedArmy</secondary>

    <flags deletable="1" init_random="0" remove_damaged="0"/>

    <position>fixed</position>

    <limit>child</limit>

    <active>1</active>

    <children>

    <child lootmax="15" lootmin="10" max="6" min="1" type="Wreck_Mi8"/>

    <child lootmax="15" lootmin="10" max="6" min="1" type="Wreck_UH1Y"/>

    <child lootmax="15" lootmin="10" max="6" min="1" type="Land_Wreck_C130J"/>

    </children>

    </event>


    Now finally, in mapgroupproto.xml it should look like this:

    And no, i dont use wifi on any of the devices in house..

    The question if he's using WIFI or mobile data was asked to find out if he's using the same or 2 different networks (WIFI from his router or mobile data).

    • If he is using WIFI and it's working on the smartphone, there seems to be a problem with the computer.
    • If he is using mobile data and it is working, it could be a problem in his local network / router config.

    WIFI on it's own is usually not the problem.

    WIFI in gaming is generally a bad idea:)

    Ive had a 5 day streak where the hostsystem is offline from about 2-3am until support opens up at 10am when they do something physical on their end.. Its not a big problem if the server is running and no restarts or coding required, but when you stop it for a few minutes and then suddenly it goes offline before i make any changes, it kinda sucks having to wait all night when we was planning to pull a all nighter, so here i am just waiting for customer support to fix it so i can start it and not lose the small amount of players i have on the server.. Customer support are great helpers, but there have been some repetetive issues with servers going on it seems..

    And if this happens every single day for about 6-10 hours during support offhours, and support then tells you the problem seems to be solved, but then 2 hours later hostsystem is offline again.. My server is based in germany, im guessing the guy above also has the server in germany, or am i wrong on that account?

    Cannot access ARK: Survival Evolved Server rental, affordable game hosting | nitrado.net or Game Server, Voice Server, affordable hosting and instantly online | nitrado.net


    Is Nitrado experiencing problems? I cannot connect from my PC, but i can connect from my phone, the webpage stopped responding in the middle of using it to change server settings. My pc has not changed in any way, i have been able to use the website perfectly fine, and mid use, it disconnected and will no longer load anything from nitrado. Everything on my pc is still working perfectly and all websites except nitrado load just fine. It also will not load on any other browsers.

    This happens to me every day, welcome to the club brotha.. And no, i dont use wifi on any of the devices in house..

    I keep getting "Hostsystem not ready or offline" every day for a few hours where i cant login to the web interface to restart or even start the server.. My server is low populated as it is so its not really cool this happens every day more frequently lately..

    Havent done anything to the server that should affect the hostsystem, its really unlucky when you stop the server for a restart and suddenly you get the message, i already know its going to be offline for a few hours, again.. Im hoping for free servertime until they give me a stable server at least..
    I sent ticket to support, "problem seems to have been solved" they said, then boom right after they close it shuts down again..

    This is starting to become a joke, obviously i am demanding my credit back for every day this happens, as i refuse to pay for a service i cannot access 24/7, which is what we are paying for.. Im a disgruntled customer, i know bohemia has a broken engine but come on nitrado, at least have your servers in order, you are destroying our communities, making players leave our servers..

    Modded servers need to manually add the new items and change the appropriate values for various items ourself, theres also changes outside the types.xml file that need to be made.

    Theres 3 ways you can go about it;

    1. Wipe your server, full reinstall, then script your server again using copy-paste from your modified files.
    2. Get the original 1.08 files, then script them using again, copy-paste from your modified files.
    3. The hard way, my way. Get the original 1.08 files, find everything from the new update from all the files, copy it over to your .xml files and make your adjustments.

    Im saying .xml files, because the types.xml file is far from the only file which need to be changed.

    The original 1.08 files can either be gotten by reinstalling the server, resetting to default .xml's on server restart, buy a new server (what I did, didnt have patience to wait for the server to make a backup).
    Dont take my words for wizdom, find out for yourself..

    Sorry it took so long, heres the default tyes.xml file for Livonia.

    I didnt do any wipes or anything to get all the items to work, instead i found all the items in the types.xml file and added them into my modified files. However the types.xml file isnt the only change, if you dont wipe you should look carefully through all the files and make sure you do the appropriate changes. I also tested if the black and green Sporter 22 would spawn, they didnt.

    supremesnow32 Just make sure you dont use youtube or anything like that for advice, there a few streamers out there who give out false information, they claim to give you working setups but in reality they dont mix well with other events or setups, their values and parameters are mostly incorrect for the most part. (I.e. scalespeeder gaming, melodic heals, donsibleygames and a few more). They claim to have tutorials on how to modify your server, but anyone with some degree of pc knowledge can tell u those guys dont have a clue, they're just DayZ gamers who are messing around with parameters, and most of what they "know" they have been told, and therefore they are also unable to understand or even know anything about the .xml files they are changing, and for the most part they simply ignore most of the lines except the nominal values and whatnot.

    In other words, you should learn how to script yourself, changing .xml files is scripting, not modding, these are facts of life.
