Garbage cleanup not occurring
New, WishlistPublic


In EXP .48 items that the player interacted with and dropped should eventually be despawned by the server. This is not occurring. I dropped some items on the ground in the middle of a forest before logging out. Several hours latter when I log back in those same items are still on the ground where I left them.

Several hours later may not be long enough for the cleanup to happen. I don't think the exact time limit for loot despawning has been announced.

If devs want to simulate decay it takes a while longer I think.

It takes about 8-10 hours, and it does work.
