To change which map you're using you first need to find or make a mission.pbo for the map. Having done that you should head over to:

@ExileServer\config.cfg

This is what you want to change

class Missions
{
	class Exile
	{
		template = Exile.Altis;
		difficulty = "ExileRegular"; // ExileRegular or ExileHardcore
	}; 
};

For example you want to use Chernarus?

template = Exile.Chernarus

Esseker?

template = Exile.Esseker

And so on...

 

To launch the server with different mods, you need to change the startup parameters of your server.

start "Arma3" /high arma3server.exe "-mod=@exile;@AllInArmaTerrainPack;@Ryanzombies;@mas;@NATO_Rus_Vehicle;@ASDG_JR;@TRYK;" -servermod=@exileserver_Chernarus;@asm; -config=C:\a3server\@exileserver_Chernarus\config.cfg -port=2302 -profiles=CH -cfg=C:\a3server\@exileserver_Chernarus\basic.cfg -name= -autoinit -maxMem=8192 -exThreads=8 -enableHT -loadMissionToMemory

There's an example of what you would add to your start parameters in order to run a server with  @exile;@AllInArmaTerrainPack;@Ryanzombies;@mas;@NATO_Rus_Vehicle;@ASDG_JR;@TRYK;

 

You simply need to add a list of mods you want to run in the "-mod" sections, separating each mod with a ;

Note that you names you use in the list of mods for your start parameters must match the name of the folder for the mod.

For Example: "@Exile" cannot be changed to "@Exile-Lime"

Hope this helps. Don't forget to use the search function next time ;)

Was wondering, was it in your command line? Because that is usually a problem that causes that.

Good to hear! you didn't mention anything about trying and it not working, the way you worded it sounded like you was just wanting to know how to do it haha. Either way, glad you got things running :)

I'll never understand why these game server providers don't do this. If they charged extra to add these and other mods at a reasonable price they'd make way more money ( read not rip off artist like survival servers ) Should be a pain free process.

Don't give them any more ideas ;)

My company already has certain maps (and adding more) set for auto install for ease of use for our customers! Just hoping to set an industry standard with that (which I highly doubt. Everyone nowadays seems to go the survival servers route.)

Well I would pay more. If it was say $40 a month for 50 slots then another $40 first month to add the mods you wanted I again would pay.

most people want to just host a server and pay and play. These server providers tho have yet to figure this out or are not yet properly motivated.
