I have no more idea...

Must be _randomSpot = false; in the server_playerLogin.sqf or server_playerSetup.sqf set to true?

My Brain stucks!

Hello,

yes it is. My Server will be forever Empty, will the Spawn not work. It makes no fun to spawn in the middle of nowhere. You go a hour thru the forrest to die on hunger and thursty. Not funny :)

The actual Spawnpoint is aprox. a 8 kilometers from the nearest town, and all hat you see is Wood or agricultural. :)

i have been playing around with this and am new to scripting for dayz, i have been able to get a new spawn location working which is not along the coast but my problem is it acts like the halo ump and spawns the player 100ft off the ground so they fall to their deaths. can anyone help me with this?
 
Hey i currently am trying to get custom spawn positions working for a custom 1.8.0.3 map im making using sauerland and it keeps spawning me and my players in debug is there any way you can help it just gives a huge performance warning during this time and no actual errors
