Problems Spawning Vehicles with Pwn0zor's Server Pack in Namalsk

Hi all,

I'm attempting to set up a Namalsk server using Pwn0zor's server as a starting point, but I'm having trouble getting the server to spawn vehicles, despite having populated the database with object_data.

Where I'm at:

I've added a dayz_namalsk database to Pwn0zor's server. This is structured using the SQL, as Namalsk was last updated to DayZ

I'm using the 'dependencies' from the NC DayZ server package, which are the dayz_server.pbo, @nc, @nc_dayz, and @nc_hive. I'm also using NC's mission.
  1. Calling database.pMain(1) works; successfully spawns object_data, and executes pCleanup()
  2. Starting the server works, although the supplied BE Filters with Namalsk will kick me. I stopped this by adding a password and removing the filters for now.
  3. I can spawn into the server and watch my character_data update. I can log off and then back on and have persistence.
  4. Loot is spawning.
  5. Zeds, all else...spawning.
  6. No vehicles!
I'm also running a Chernarus server (on DayZ off the same box, and that's working fine.

What I've tried:
  1. Checking the instance ID, (because I'm running another server. I've already checked this without the other server running, and I'm still having the same problem.)
  2. Checking to make sure I'm using NC's dayz_server.pbo.
  3. Checking to make sure the HiveExt.dll I'm using is the same as

If you feel so inclined, you can download a completed package of everything from my Google Drive. You'll need both the Stuff for the Client & Server and Stuff for Just the Server, (I've sanitized these files; they don't contain my usernames and passwords.)

Worth Noting: I have a standalone MySQL Server for the other DayZ server as well, and so I'm able to keep it updated. The startup script in here, (@start_dayz_namalsk.bat) doesn't start the MySQL server. Also, make sure you run all the .sql's from the download.

Unbelievably Helpful Resources:
  1. DayZMod Github (you can look at old branches. It's where I downloaded a lot of resources.)
  2. NightStalkers (the group who made Namalsk Crisis, and supported NC DayZ. The link goes straight to the DayZ page.)
Any help would be very appreciated. Sorry for the excessively long post...
Thought it might also be worth adding the HiveExt log.

This is a fresh log after about 2 minutes of gameplay, when I moved myself to where a vehicle should've been. I verified it hadn't spawned, and then logged out.
Figured it out. I must've called pMain() as pMain(1337), or I must've accidentally used a .sql with vehicles from a server instance of 1337, because all the vehicles were from a 1337 instance.

So, I cleared object_data, called pMain(<my server instance here>) and it worked.

Very happy to have it working. And do join Namalsk! It's coming back!
Oh, also, a major help was increasing the verbosity of HiveExt, which I did by changing some line in HiveExt.ini, found in the server's config folder.
We are suffering similar with our untouched Dayz mod server. Vehicles are created in the DB and have world location but do not appear in game.
or instance is called ('1337')
we have tried changing pMain as both ('i') and ('1337') and the same with pSpawnVehicles but still get no vehicles in game.

We are pretty new to A2 code so would appreciate dead basic noob instructions! :p

pcsheepy - the instance you use needs to be the same in init.sqf as well as the call to pMain(). you may see rows in object_data, but if those numbers don't match, they won't show up.
