Terrible desync and lag issues occur when trucks and barrel are used as storage compartments.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When players of a server use barrels and trucks to store equipment, it seems to cause a major lag and desync issue in the server. This has been experienced multiple times and seems to be a fairly consistent problem. A server which goes by the name of 'The Civ' has tested tents to see if it is what is causing the problem. After filling up a large number of tents it can be seen that the issue does not occur. This has lead us to believe that the issue occurs only with both trucks and barrels that are filled with any sort of loot or equipment.

We tested tents so far on The CIv's spare server. Locked it down, no trucks or barrels used. Currently looking for barrels to continue the testing, but here is what we have so far:

They've already addressed the issue internally.. now we're just waiting for the hotfix patch they promised us which might take another month to finally be released for whatever reason (dunno why... the stable branch really needs this hotfix right now, a lot of the servers I play on are simply becoming empty again because no one can build camps for groups over the size of two or three.)

The issue does occur with tents too but it seems sporadic and some servers can handle up to 15 tents before the problem arises. Barrels cause the problem the most consistently.

So far, we have added one barrel. No difference, we can move stuff around without a hitch. Adding one more, then posting a video of that. Then, we will roll trucks in.....

And part 3 where we added a truck into the equation. Truck was over 1km away.

Nice find guys!

I have tested this issue and can say it most often occurs when you put any type of container IE. (clothing, protector cases, ammo boxes, etc.) at the moment I have two trucks about 150m apart and about 200m from camp and camp consists of 6 barrels of different level of full and the barrels are in a 100m area about 25-30m apart, running very smooth no desync, Pay attention to every new item you bring and store cause some items seem to cause it as well but mainly containers in barrels, tents or trucks cause desync leading to session lost.

Hello apemeth and thank you for the report.
This is an issue we are aware of (#0027232), it has been fixed internally and should be fixed on Steam soon.
