We have had several users in our game community report that our DayZ server at
22.214.171.124:2502, when restarted, doesn't seem to always "fully restart". Instead the server sometimes (not all restarts) seem to be set in some sort of limbo where the game simulation only actually starts whenever the first person joins the server. And since there is a bug with characters being wiped when joining a server before the ingame simulation has begun (before ingame time is e.g. 09:01), there is a risk of always at least one player getting a character wipe each restart. This, in turn, makes this server pretty useless as you can imagine.
What can be done about this? Can we have some sort of dummy account always log in to the server after restart? Will a complete wipe/revamp of the server help? We have a BEC server as well, can we use it somehow to force the simulation to start? We're open to any and all suggestions.
