Safezone not working

Question

Our safezones are hit and miss. Some work, some do not. Does not make a lot of sense.

 

Anyone else having these issues?

They are not safe.

You go in, it pops up you are in a safezone and then suddenly goes away. For whatever reason my central trader still works whereas all the others suddenly don't.

My players are able to kill each other, shoot cars, etc all in the safezone. I read about them taking away safezone triggers. How can we set this now? 

 

		items=5;
		class Item0
		{
			position[]={6329.4546,305.02869,7796.4131};
			a=175;
			b=175;
			rectangular=1;
			activationBy="ANY";
			repeating=1;
			interruptable=1;
			age="UNKNOWN";
			name="ExileTrader";
			expCond="(vehicle player) in thisList";
			expActiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onEnterSafezone";
			expDesactiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onLeaveSafezone";
			class Effects
			{
			};
		};
		class Item1
		{
			position[]={4073.3301,0,11677.6};
			a=175;
			b=175;
			rectangular=1;
			activationBy="ANY";
			repeating=1;
			interruptable=1;
			age="UNKNOWN";
			name="ExileTrader";
			expCond="(vehicle player) in thisList";
			expActiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onEnterSafezone";
			expDesactiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onLeaveSafezone";
			class Effects
			{
			};
		};
		class Item2
		{
			position[]={11462.4,0,11348};
			a=175;
			b=175;
			rectangular=1;
			activationBy="ANY";
			repeating=1;
			interruptable=1;
			age="UNKNOWN";
			name="ExileTrader";
			expCond="(vehicle player) in thisList";
			expActiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onEnterSafezone";
			expDesactiv="call ExileClient_object_player_event_onLeaveSafezone";
			class Effects
			{
			};

Update: Wondering if it is the new infistar doing it. I did update to the newest but I see he added it isn't ready for lime yet, and it's all I can think of at this point.

I did miss updating the malloc, so I'm going to do that as well.

Pulled infistar entirely and this is still busted. Pulled the triggers from my mission.sqm as well. No notifications or anything.

 

Sort of out of ideas. How are safezones done now? We run custom trader locations on Chernarus. @Eichi @MrWhite

I'm probably wrong but i think it might be done on the type of marker.

text="Staroye Trader City";
            markerType="ELLIPSE";
            type="ExileTraderZone";
            colorName="ColorBlue";
            fillName="SolidBorder";
            a=100;
            b=100;
            drawBorder=1;

 

I haven't encountered any issues with it, but i did notice my black market had the "type" listed above as the marker was the same, we don't run a safezone at that particular trader so I changed the type to "none" and it disabled the safezone triggering.

 

Hope this helps.

Okay, figured it out.

It looks as if the names are the same in my file whereas in the stock it isn't.

I changed the names to be different and went from only one safezone working to all of them, so long as they all had different names.

It seems to be tied to ExileTraderZone markers, which is great as well.

Yes, if you look in your mission.sqm there is a line that says "type=" " ". All you do is put traderzone in there, or whatever it is from the released altis mission, and it just werks. Much simpler.

Yeah, I had all of that down after digging into some config files.

 

This was my issue:

		class Item4
		{
			position[]={6331.5083,305.00452,7798.1758};
			name="TraderCityMarker";
			text="Mafia Trader City";
			markerType="ELLIPSE";
			type="ExileTraderZone";
			colorName="ColorBlue";
			fillName="SolidBorder";
			a=175;
			b=175;
			drawBorder=1;
		};
		class Item5
		{
			position[]={4073.3301,0,11677.6};
			name="TraderCityMarker";
			text="Mafia Trader City";
			markerType="ELLIPSE";
			type="ExileTraderZone";
			colorName="ColorBlue";
			fillName="SolidBorder";
			a=175;
			b=175;
			drawBorder=1;
		};

The name="TraderCityMarker" was used on every single one, which the script didn't like. So it only took the first one and actually applied to that-- meaning my Stary safezone was good, but my other three had nothing.

Giving them all unique names solved it.

Hi All,

Really hope someone is able to help I have a problem with my server and stumbled upon this thread....

My safe zones are not working, they are marked..traders are functional, but for some reason does not register has a safe zone either when you go in or come out.

I have taken an extract of my mission.sqm file below that I thought would be relevant. People on my server are dying in the safe zones. I would really appreciate some help here.... Thanks in advance.
