We started using this on our BF3 server to turn off vehicles on Seine Crossing and Grand Bazaar. It worked apart from when the server switched back to any other map then the vehicles were also gone there too.

Is this something I'm missing?

yes, the plugin disables the respawn but doesn't enable it if the map is not in the list.

Should be corrected ...

Or you can add the var in the serverconfig files of the poweradmin plugin.

Forgive me if I'm being stupid but I'm a bit new to this, I have read all the support and searched for an answer with no luck.

Here's my file:

Code: [Select]
<configuration plugin="vehiclecontrolbf3">
<settings name="messages">
<set name="no_vehicle_respawn">Combat vehicles will NOT respawn on this map! Use them wisely.</set>
</settings>
<disable_vehicle_respawn>
<!--
For all the maps you enter below, vehicles will spawn only once at the beginning of round and will
not respawn again if vehicle spawn enabled in the config file.
-->
<map>MP_001</map>
<map>MP_011</map>
</disable_vehicle_respawn>
</configuration>

So it lists the 2 maps we want vehicles disabling on. And it works, if the server loads either of those maps then the plugin kicks in and works. As I've said the problem is that the next map where we want vehicles, we are having to manually turn them back on. Are you saying we need all the other maps adding somewhere in this file so that the plugin  turns them back on? If so, where do I place them?

Sorry about the late reply. I was using this with poweradminbf3's configmanager and didn't notice this  :o

Can you try the file attached and let me know if it's ok now?

Yeah, I'll clear it down and run a drag log through a couple of map changes.

Very strangely when I did this to get a log for you it started working. Only thing I can think of is I was using Procon for iPhone to change the maps the first time and maybe the settings in that interfered.

Thanks anyway, working as it should be!

Stopped working again all of a sudden... thought maybe the new Karkand Maps were causing it but now I don't think so.

Log attached... http://pastebin.com/FVNYkLfi

I don't see the plugin loading at all  ???

Also I'd need a long chunk where I can see the map is rotating but the plugin cannot enable/disable vehicles.
