Serverside or Clientside?

Question

I am having trouble deciding which mods go into which commandlines.

 

Current commandline:

-ip=xxx.xx.xxx.xxx -port=xxxx -noPause -noSound -cpuCount=4 -maxMem=4096 -exThreads=7 "-cfg=basic.cfg" "-config=server.cfg" "-profiles=profile" -autoInit -serverMod=@ExileServer -mod=@Exile -autoinit

I am wanting to add the following:

- AllInArmaTerrainPack

- The Esseker Map

- RyanZombies

- TRYK

- FuMS (Or Alternative AI)

I am not sure which mods fall under the serverMod commandline and mod commandline.

Also, what should my command line be with regards to launching Esseker?

Thanks.

So here is the rule of thumb on -servermods vs -mods

Basically, if you would like your server to run a mod, but not have the clients run the mod, then it goes in servermods

If you would like both the server and the client to run the mod, then it goes in mods

 

For example, terrain packs need to be loaded by both the server (so it knows where to put loot, hills, ect) and the client (so it can render the terrain on your pc) the zombies I think need to be loaded by both, tryk definitly and AI is a gamble, some AI systems run on client side while others run server side.

As far as Esseker goes, if a mod requires other mods, make sure those other mods are being loaded first, for example -mods=@AllinArmaTerrainPack;@Esseker

Notice how the last mod in the list does not receive a ;

also -autoinit makes the mission start without any players on the server

semi colon at the end doesn't matter.
@FuMS; goes in server mods, as does a3xai.
 

example... my exile tavi rhs start bat.

@echo off
start /high "arma3" "A3EXILESERVERTAVI.exe" -enableHT -noSound -port=2802
"-mod=curator;kart;heli;mark;dlcbundle;@AllInArmaTerrainPack;@RHSAFRF;@RHSUSAF;@TavianaA3;@Exile;"
"-servermod=@ExileServerTavi;@infiSTAR_Exile_Tavi;@A3XAI;@FuMS;"
"-config=D:\A3\EXILESERVERTAVI\taviConfig00.cfg"
"-profiles=EXILESERVERTAVI" "-cfg=D:\A3\EXILESERVERTAVI\basic.cfg"
-name=21DMD "-bepath=D:\A3\EXILESERVERTAVI\BattlEye" -noLogs -autoInit
