I agree with the "Realism" aspect of loot once its gone its gone. But this being a game the thrill of loot is what brings alot of players. After the 20th empty house it just makes the game feel boring and unrewarding.

Yeah I agree with that. This is a game. If this was a simulator 90% of the games we would be dead. Noone wants realism just because its close to the real. Player want to have fun, and often realism gives more fun, gets you involved deeper. But hey I don't want to play The sisms in dayz. I want to loot, shoot, and survive. Not spendind 90% of the time looking for food that's gone and stuff

i actually like the drop rate atm, there just should be more ways to get food for the players who have progressed more, so they will leave the milkpowder & cornflakes for the players who have just respawned.
als,some types of houses never seem to have loot in them,this makes it kinda predictable after a while where you can find food and where not.


I agree with the fun aspect. This game should not be about preventing starvation. And SERVER HOPPING should not become the ultimate solution for any gear problems.

BUT despite the lack of food, I appreciate a very low spawn rate for guns and ammo, because even though stuff degrades when you get smacked or shot, people still don't care, because they can "SERVER HOPP" for their gear anyway.

If they want to shoot on sight, they can have this in various ArmA Mods, but DayZ should (not solely, but mainly) be about survival and not about killing on sight.

(Sorry, don't want to make this a principle discussion.)

Problem is that you have to switch servers very often when there is nothing to find anymore, thats frustrating and forces players to switch servers and clear them up all 4 hours at the moment.

down voting for grammar alone.

Hello bor22 and thank you for the report.
Loot respawn mechanic has been implemented, closing the ticket as it is no longer relevant.
