Body Temperature after cooking goes haywire (LIVONIA)
Need More Info, NormalPublic


Cooking multiple mutton on a stick in the internal fireplace of a residential log cabin, trusting the game to place me at a safe distance for roasting, my temperature eventually rose to red, so I stopped.
After that the temperature gauge seemed to have a mind of it's own and refused to fall, and took alot of my health.
I could kind of control it by taking off my clothes and running around in the rain, but then it jumped from red to blue and took my health faster.
If it stops raining then my temperature rises faster. If I put my clothes back on, ditto.
I logged off and exited the game, rejoined, and the problem still exists.

Cook mutton on a stick in the (internal fireplace of the dark brown) residential log cabin.
Let DayZ choose the distance you sit at,.
Repeat until your temperature flashes red and your health starts to fall.
Wait to eventually die because there's nothing you can do to fix the problem.

I was playing on a modded LIVONIA server.

Hello malau.
We have been testing the issue internally but were unable to produce it.
Is it possible that there are some other things that affect the occurrence of the issue?

I guess the real issue was that the game was seating the player too close to the fireplace and allowing him to become 'burned'. A safe default seating distance would be preferable. As it is, the game allows you to stand right next to the fireplace and select 'Roast'.
My inability to get rid of the overheating could well be due to untested mods brought over from v1.05

Maybe he put some of the cooked meat in his shirt or pants?
