[Expie v1.17.154657] Nameplate issue when exiting vehicles
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Nameplates are not showing for certain dead entities after leaving a vehicle.
I think this may also be related to another reported incident whereby peoples HUD's break if they play with hud off, and then can't turn it back on, but we are still getting recreation steps nailed down for this part of the issue.

Tested entities:

  • Infected
  • Survivors (dead)
  • Bull/Cow
  • Goat
  • Sheep
  • Bear

If you kill one of the above entities, and enter a vehicle, then leave that vehicle, then look at the entity again the nameplate won't show.

If you look at a Chicken/hen or any other entity, and then look back, the nameplate returns.


Operating System
Windows 10
Ingame UI
Steps To Reproduce
  • Kill one of the above listed entities (this example, Infected with an item in inventory)
  • Look at entity and notice Nameplate shows
  • Place an item on the floor nearby (tested with Chickens, Bandages and Paper. Any item seems to work)
  • Get itno a vehicle (tested with ADA4x4 and Sarka)
  • Get out of the vehicle
  • Look at the entity again, no Nameplate will show
  • Look at the item (chicken, paper etc)
  • Look back at the entity, and the Nameplate will now return as normal.
