Important information to get the most from R3
Make sure you enable
gzipon your web server. If you don't your users will be sat waiting for the playback to load for a long time, and downloading 100s MBs each time. This is very important.
Ensure your MySQL server timezone matches that of your server / R3 config. If they aren't the same, missions may incorrectly auto hide or fail to show as in progress.
Adding new Terrains
R3 supports over 115 popular terrains. Just played a mission on a map that R3 doesn't yet support? Feel free to add it yourself and let every user of R3 benefit from it! Follow the simple instructions here
Adding new vehicle icons
Is a modded vehicle using the vanilla map icon instead of the correct shape and outline for that mod? Submit new vehicle icons here, and every user of R3 will get access to it! Follow the simple instructions here
You can find me (Titan) on the R3 Discord or feel free to create an issue here.
Why not x framework/language
In an ideal world I'd be using web sockets and node to stream from the game server straight to a flat json file, and to the browser. However the goal is to allow Arma 3 server admins to be able to run this and contribute. PHP + MySQL is the most common setup these administrators (with potentially limited sysadmin knowledge or sudo access) will have so it is the correct choice, as limiting as that can be!
