CLE does not allow for balancing item spawns in multiple tiers
Assigned, UrgentPublic

Description

The DayZ CLE as it currently stands does not allow you to fine tune the balancing of item spawns when the item in question is used in multiple tiers.

For example, if I spawn an M4A1 in Tiers 3 and 4, I don't have the ability to make more of them spawn in Tier 4 than in Tier 3, its shared across the two depending on other items in the tier, open spots for loot, etc. You can kind of fudge this a little but as server developers we don't have fine control over this.

I propose breaking out the CLE algorithm to accommodate multiple declarations of the same item in types.xml in order to pick up different nominals/mins across different tiers. I.E:

<type name="SparkPlug">
  <nominal>10</nominal>
  <min>5</min>
  ....
  <value name="Tier1" />
</type>
<type name="SparkPlug">
  <nominal>3</nominal>
  <min>1</min>
  ....
  <value name="Tier2" />
</type>

This would be a nice enhancement to the CLE. You can kind of get around this by using your server mod to create duplicates of the items (SparkPlug_T1, SparkPlug_T2, etc.) and then create separate entries in types.xml for each one. Very tedious, though. It would be *much* better if this capability was built in.

This would also solve an issue I've faced within the table, whereby I'd like an item to spawn in a certain usage name in one tier, but another in a second.

For example:

<value name="Tier2"/>
        <usage name="Hunting"/>
<value name="Tier3"/>
        <usage name="Police"/>
<value name="Tier4"/>
        <usage name="Military"/>

meaning that item will be spread across tier 2 hunting spots, tier 3 police, and tier 4 military.
having the usages as children(?) of the tier above would be handy to have.

Currently I believe it's matterless where you arrange these, the above example would read as "Spawn these across Tiers 2, 3 and 4, in Hunting, police and military spawns", despite the formatting.

  • (?): I've no idea of the correct terminology, sorry.
