Backpack Item Rearrangement Upon Log out / Log in
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


After logging out and back in. I've noticed that items have disappeared from my inventory. I've also seen them completely rearranged in their slots within the backpack. This did not seem to happen with my pants or shirt.

I should note that I've only seen this with the hunter back pack.

If someone would throw a screen shot in here I would really appreciate it. I'll do it tonight when I get home if no one is able to.

Seems to be the same issue as reported here: #7443

Whenever my backpack is not full it sometimes rearranges items in my case aswell. But that has happened with all backpacks and on all patches I've played so far (been playing since 0.30.113953 on Alpha). Item position is only saved when it's filled up.

I mentioned body re-positioning and think these are two different issues. In fact, after the most recent patch my body was no longer moving but items were gone or rearranged. The bug I've reported may have been created when they fixed the body re-positioning bug.

Probably related if not exactly the same as #7958

Thank you for the feedback. We are aware of this issue and are currently working on a fix.

Please keep monitoring this issue for further updates.

Sometimes it is rearranged in such a way that some items don't fit any more and therefore get deleted. (sawn off shotgun mostly in my experience)

This is still happening in .47 experimental

Still happening in .50.

It really sucks because the high value items like the AK74u/MP5, take up so much room in the backpack. They're often deleted if there isn't a crazy amount of space available.

The fix is to save the locations of the items in the database as they do with the items.
I imagine there is a bit of coding to do, but this shouldn't be a high complexity issue.

And yes, it still happens in 0.50.
Try to fit the biggest items at the top left corner, then you won't lose anything.

I'm still getting this in in version 0.51 stable. It is also happening to my camp's big military tent. Amongst items disappearing after being rearranged.

Same issue here! Rearrangement and (in my case) ONE item from backpack on floor on log in.
