ME -Did you notice in the victory screen all the diferent vehicles?
YOU -Yes, so what?
-Well, you can use those vehicles just by modding your server files
-Really ? how many are they and what kind of vehicles?
-You have 6 black hawks and 2 F18 in valparaiso. 6 mi24 in Laguna presa rush. 3 ah60, 5 m1 Abrams tank (with unique cammo), 2 f18 and 2 su39 in isla inocentes. I could keep like this all day but you get the idea, just check the victory cinema at the end of the round of any map and you will see how many and what vehicles are hidden in that map.
-Nice, but how can i do this on my server? do i have to edit the client files? and this also work in vietnam?
-This mod is server side only, you can add lots of vehicles in many maps, and everybody can join without adding anything to the client files, and yes, is the same in vietnam, just watch the victory creen and see what maps have extra vehicles.
-I know, but don't get too exited adding too many vehcles to your map, becouse if you don't think about balance and strategic you will end with a crazy carnage map, believe me, i added all extra vehicles to isla inocentes and it was madness, the airspace was overcrowded, and the land was dominated for the almost inmortal m1 Abrams, so you better use just some of the extra vehicles or put them in strategic places and very distant from each other.
-Ok, shut up and tell me how to do this!
-Fine, you don't need to be rude, lets get to it.
what you need:
mod tools + server files.
1- Open a map with extra vehicles (not all the maps have extra vehicles, just the ones that show vehicles in the victory screen, we gonna use Laguna presa rush mp-009gr, but you can use any map)
go to the main dbx (levels\mp-009gr.dbx)
2- Go to the end of the file and search for VehicleSpawnEntityData and press search previous
check the name of the vehicle to be sure that it is an extra vehicle, it should say something like "Name">RUS_Win or "Name"> US_victory, once we are sure that this is an extra vehicle, we proceed to enable it
3- Check if it is enabled: <field name="Enabled">false</field> if is not, just change false to true.
4- Now edit <field name="SpawnVehicleFromBeginning">false</field> change false to true.
5- Set auto spawn to true <field name="AutoSpawn">true</field>
Ok with this you can save/archive and you will have a new mi24 never seen before in laguna presa, but will like to edit a few more parameters, like where it is gonna spawn and the max amount of this vehicles.
6- Change coordinate to where you like it, i will give you my personal coordinate plane for a few maps, so you can work with presicion
7- Enter restriction: you have to change the enter restriction mode, if not, only two players can enter the vehicle, (the driver, and the gunner)
to do that change: <field name="EnterRestriction">eerOnlyPrimaryEntry</field> to <field name="EnterRestriction">eerNoRestriction</field>
8- Set the ammount of vehicles:
search for <field name="Amount">0</field> this is how many vehicles will be after destroying one, lets say that you set it in 5, so after destroying 5 of this vehicles they will stop spawning. usually we play with this value in zero.
9- Now for the maximun ammount search for:
<field name="MaxVehicles">3</field> this one tells the game how many vehicles can be simultaneously in one team
<field name="MaxVehiclesPerMap">6</field> this one is how many vehicles can be simultaneously per map of both teams combined.
I think that is all. good luck!

Note about the jets: you will be able to add the jets without touching your client files, but they are incomplete, in future tutorials i will tell you how to make them fully functional.
