## Overview

    This is a server side add-on mod for Arma3 Exile servers.
    This add-on is focused on providing additional experiences around "towns" and "cities" on your preferred map.
    Majority of the functionality will work out of the box by just copying in to your server add-on directory as it reads and utilizes map data to adjust itself.
    There is no need to set anything inside your mp_mission.pbo for this add-on to work.
    
    This add-on has been developed to try to get players to explore towns and landmarks which often are barren in default Exile game play.
    For looting, this add-on will create a loot-box somewhere outside, or indoors of random towns. (apart from Exile loot spawn system.)
    The loot-boxes often have some random items, pop-tabs, trash which would benefit Bambi players. (There is also a module which will spawn landmine near these loot-boxes so be aware!)
    This add-on has it's own vehicle spawning system which tries to spawn vehicles in a natural way. (apart from Exile vehicle spawning system.)
    There are various additional functionality this add-on supports which should provide players with some nice experiences when playing.

## from Dev.nabek
    I have made this add-on as a small return gift to the Exile community for the endless hours I have played and enjoyed this game mode.
    This add-on was originally developed for my own Exile Server but I wish to release this to the public so other server owners are able to utilize it. I would be happy if this add-on is used somewhere in the world =)

    I would like to ask if anyone is interested in translating the readme file (for free), such as to German, French, Russian, etc..

If the map data is secure, there is no problem. tested (Tanoa, altis,  CUP maps)

hi, Irkutsk86 (゚∀゚)ノ

This add-on does spawn objects in to the map, thus as any other add-on which does the same, of course it will become performance heavy depending on how you configured it. I would suggest you to figure out the limit of what your server can handle and configure it to suite your own environment for it to work fine tuned, my setup is using cup takistan with other add-ons and scripts and it works flawlessly. (amd a6-3650..)

I'm no fan of the exile loot-n-shoot game play , so my suggestions may sound out of place for some. But still , here are a few things to consider , if its possible to implement:

* - In addition to the random loot boxes, randomly spawn (or not) custom location stashes. Yeah I'm a control freak, I want to decide where to put some of them :-).  If you played STALKER series you remember how fun it was to look for these dozens of stashes hidden all over the map. No markers. Just you and your instincts to look for this. I've tried implementing something similar on my server via Darth_Rogue & Chisel script of custom crates, but the custom locations where pretty constant and players farmed the same box over and over after restarts , instead of boxes spawning once in a 4-5 server restarts or only 1 out of 5 predefined locations.

* - Meeting a random traveling/sitting somewhere trader is fun. If you have no trade zones even better.  But still you need to use pop tabs currency for this. I find it would be much more immersive to meet and trade with them item per item , instead of currency involved.  Food for food , food for ammo , ammo for food , etc.

* - I've noticed you have "outdoor loot box" in the middle of village. You might want to spawn them , even further in the woods/desert far from any named location of the map. 

* - "When spotter and fired upon , your location will be marked on map for other players to see"   -   I suggest adding some kind of a bandit radio transmission , as if they report you location to others.  Plus add check for specific items for players to have , before they can see the marker.  Well , radio to hear the bandit transmission and GPS to have the "exact" coordinates of other players.


? - BTW , how is the performance? Anyone tried this addon and seen any issues as @Irkutsk86 says?  
Does it have some sort of self-cleaning system to clean looted loot boxes,  far from player ai , etc .    to boost frames a bit?
