Hello, I scripted more than 6 vehicles... everything went ok. but during the game, I realized that when the time passes, and the vehicles don't respawn where I placed it doesn't appear there, I mean, all the scripted vehicles appear where I put the first vehicle, they don't respawn where I placed them (I hope you understood). Please, help me wit this.

Yes, they will go to the first location. There's a way to fix this using scripts, I believe I have a copy of a friend's scripts that I can get in touch with. He did this in a map called Carthage, let me see if he still has the scripts kicking around and we'll get back to you.

So the way this works is first you take a dummy vehicle that has no purpose and place it outside the map. You put a trigger volume around this initial vehicle spawn and then you place your real vehicles and name them live1, live2, etc and then you place destroyed versions of those and name them dead1, dead2, etc.

The script tracks the health so when live1 has no health it destroys live1 and replaces it with dead1 which then crashes to the ground.

When live1 respawns it will respawn at the dummy vehicle spawn point. This is outside the map but in a trigger volume. As soon as it respawns your script destroys it and recreates it which places it at the objects actual spawn point that you placed in sapien.

So if the object blows up, eventually it respawns and when it does, the script moves it from spawn point of vehicle 1 dummy (the glitch you have), to the actual spawn point you placed in sapien.

If a vehicle just respawns because the timer ran out it's moved to the spawn point of the dummy vehicle, and the script then pushes it back. This is only 5-10 ticks under worst scenarios, so shouldn't affect gameplay over a server.

All combined, this syncs destructible vehicles over a server in custom edition and makes them respawn properly, also synced.
