CE Parameters not working
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Sup,

I'd like to bring up the issue of multiple parameters in the CE files not working at all. I've noticed this quite a while ago, but finally decided to run some tests for proof and make a report about it.

All the following tests have been done on a full wiped Vanilla Server with exception of CF and VPPAdminTools Mods. To prevent Idle Mode I've been on the server the whole time.
Furthermore the following 3 parameters in cfgeconomycore.xml have been set to true for logging.

<default name="log_ce_lootspawn" value="true"/>
<default name="log_ce_lootcleanup" value="true"/>
<default name="log_ce_lootrespawn" value="true"/>

Finally I set the following parameter to 0 in globals.xml to prevent the wiped server launching with 100% loot spawned and therefore force loot to spawn gradually right after launch.

<var name="InitialSpawn" type="0" value="0"/>

Now let's have a look at the actual tests. First I didn't change anything. Log file (5 minutes):


What's important to remember here is that the CE spawns 20 different types 10x times every 30 seconds. As example:

Now test no2. For this one I adjusted the following 2 parameters in globals.xml:

<var name="RespawnLimit" type="0" value="5"/>
<var name="RespawnTypes" type="0" value="5"/>

If I understand these parameters correctly the CE should now be limited to spawn only 5 different types 5x every 30 seconds. Let's see the results.
Log file (5 minutes):


Looking at the logs nothing has changed. The CE still spawns 20 different types 10x every 30 seconds (ignore the SVD mag its capped at 4 spawns nominal). Example:

First (potential) conclusion is that adjusting the "RespawnLimit" and "RespawnTypes" parameters in globals.xml is not working.

The next tests involves the "restock" parameters in both types.xml and events.xml. For this one I simply set the restock to 3600 for every single type in types.xml, that had 0 previously (simple find and replace). If I understand this parameter correctly the CE should only spawn 1x of each type every hour. Within the same test I set the same restock for heli crash events in events.xml. Log file (5 minutes):


Looking into the logs again the CE completely ignores the "restock" parameter in types.xml. Example:

16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [9299,12068]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [7995,12639]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [6782,2701]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [11563,14569]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [3905,10877]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [3431,12483]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [12170,7236]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [8406,12827]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [13870,11168]
16:46:29   Adding Barrel_Green at [10673,8136]

Interestingly it actually prevented any heli crash from spawning and probably broke it. In the previous 2 tests there was 3 heli crashes as intended, but now we see this in the log file:

16:43:33 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIHeliCrash) :: Init: "StaticHeliCrash" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 3) within 9 attempts.

I wanted to take this test further and set a restock of 3600 for every single event in events.xml. Let's see what we get as result. Log file (2 minutes):


It appears like adding a restock timer into events.xml completely broke many events. Loot is not even spawning.

16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIAirplaneCrate) :: Init: "StaticAirplaneCrate" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 9) within 27 attempts.
16:54:00 [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIContaminatedArea) :: Initial random enabled for "StaticContaminatedArea" - Chosen nominal: 3
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIContaminatedArea) :: Init: "StaticContaminatedArea" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 3) within 9 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIHeliCrash) :: Init: "StaticHeliCrash" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 3) within 9 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIMilitaryConvoy) :: Init: "StaticMilitaryConvoy" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 5) within 15 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIPoliceSituation) :: Init: "StaticPoliceSituation" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 5) within 15 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRITrain) :: Init: "StaticTrain" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 3) within 9 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRICivilianSedan) :: Init: "VehicleCivilianSedan" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 8) within 24 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIHatchback02) :: Init: "VehicleHatchback02" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 8) within 24 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIOffroad02) :: Init: "VehicleOffroad02" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 3) within 9 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRIOffroadHatchback) :: Init: "VehicleOffroadHatchback" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 8) within 24 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRISedan02) :: Init: "VehicleSedan02" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 8) within 24 attempts.
16:54:00 !!! [CE][VehicleRespawner] (PRITruck01) :: Init: "VehicleTruck01" - Failed to spawn the requested amount (0 < 8) within 24 attempts.

Second (potential) conclusion is that adjusting "restock" parameter in types.xml does not work either. It just behaves as 0 regardless. In events.xml it appears to break things to adjust the "restock" parameter.

These parameters can be really important to balance loot on your servers. For example I would love to prevent players from grinding toxic zones looting it every hour or so, because pretty much all the loot respawns very quickly regardless of what restock timer i define. I've been doing the CLE for multiple servers for over a year and would really like to see these options available.

By the way if I am doing something wrong let me know :).

Cheers,
Sten

Nice work. The issue with the restock setting has been reported for nearly 4 years. Maybe your ticket will bring it back to attention.

Geez changed the task status from New to Awaiting internal Testing.Mar 25 2024, 10:57 AM

I mentioned some stuff with dodgy events in this ticket here https://feedback.bistudio.com/T174358#2479258. Have to swipe down to the bottom to see my bit but it’s there and may relate to this.

Geez changed the task status from Awaiting internal Testing to Confirmed Internally.Apr 29 2024, 2:32 PM

@sanguine00 While I cannot speak from the perspective of someone that knows how to work the internal systems. From gameplay alone, you can tell loot is not working how it should be. You said this problem has been around for a while and reported several times. From just a players perspective felt like loot was fine before 1.24. If this was an issue before then, it seems to have been made worse by patch 1.24. I originally thought I have been having either the worst luck possible and in some cases comically good luck, till Sten mentioned this to me and how it makes loot behave in the exact ways I have observed in game. Made everything make perfect sense. Hoping this gets rectified before Shakal is released at the latest. Says Geez switched it to pending to confirmed internally. Gonna assume that actually means they are gonna fix it, but idk how many issue get confirmed internally and still not touched on a regular basis. Feel like this is Hotfix worthy issue, but that is just me.

@Geez Does that include what I said here? https://feedback.bistudio.com/T174358#2479258

There are some general changes coming that should resolve the two main tickets in question, please let us know after the update if the extra issue you have encountered occurs still.
