    Slmod for DCS 1.5/2.0

    After a few months of tweaks, waiting for expansion to the API, and a ton of testing slmod is now in a workable state for release. Note you will likely encounter bugs.

    I've tested this on the latest 2.5.5.


    Install
    Download the master branch on github. Copy scripts folder into C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\DCS (folder of choice)

    When you first run DCS after installing slmod a new folder named "slmod" in saved games\DCS will be created. Within this folder is the config file which you can use to setup slmod as you desire. Additionally you can place missions within the missions folder for slmod to list the available missions when you want to change the mission as admin.

    If you want to disable slmod you can simply open the file 'Scripts/Hooks/slmodGameGui.lua' and comment out the slmod code.

    What is SLMOD

    SLMOD is a server side mod that adds server administration tools, stats, and enhanced mission scripting capabilities. It is worth noting that the scripting engine is now capable of most if not all of the scripting functions slmod adds, so it primarily should be considered a server admin mod.

    For more information on slmod check out the thread by its original creator Speed.


    Known Issues/Bugs
    -All "text" messages are sent at a group level, so if the mission has multiple flights per group the other players in your group will see the message intent for you. There is nothing I can do about this until ED implement the a message to Unit or message to player functionality.
    -restart command not functional due to not knowing the name of the current mission
    -If you are going to use SLMODs "pause when empty" feature I highly recommend unchecking the options when creating a server in the advanced menu so that slmod and the server settings don't potentially "fight" one another.



    Please report bugs and issues you come across in this thread. I've made this new thread since its more relevant here than in mods.

                Looking good so far on 2.0. Everything seems to do what it's supposed to.

                  In 2.0 '-admin restart' seems not to work. I get the chat message that it's restarting but nothing happens. No *.log entry either. Loading the mission with '-admin load X' functions properly. Maybe that is addicted to the "dont know what mission is running" thing...

                    bug report.

                    if installed on a 'part time server' (hosting sometimes playing on other servers sometimes)

                    when joining other server the dialog box does not show up (thats the box on the right that shows mission messages like the ctld script for picking up and droping off troops)

                    as a host these messages show correctly.

                            Yeah, this is my highest priority to fix it at the moment. I also forgot to mention it in the first post. For now disable slmod in userGameGUI.lua if you plan to play the game for anything but server hosting.

                                I admire your focussed dedication. Your (community) efforts make DCS more then a game with nice objects.


                                I advise ED to take you extremely serious. You are a blessing and a valuable asset.

                                  Uploaded new version on github. The issue with messages not displaying if you have slmod installed as a client should be fixed. Gonna look into the chat and stats display next.

                                    This will be very helpful to finally bring the frindly fire at spawning players to a stop.
