*POOF* Gear be gone!
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Had a geared up gunfighter character who was transitioning to a survivalist. Had all the meds, long term survival goods and M4 attachments for days. Just got my fireplace kit, some meat and fishing gear. Was making the switch in order to checkout the new cooking update. Had a frying pan and came across a cooking pot. As I was switching the meat from pan to pot, the server restarted. Upon joining a new server I found all my gear except for my jacket, hat, glasses, axe and M4 was gone. Tried to exit and join another server but no dice. The damage was done. Not doing this to get gear back, can't get attached to gear in DayZ. Felt the need to share incase its a bug regarding moving gear during a restart.

Steps To Reproduce

Note the biker jacket was ruined.
Everything I had after issue: Jacket plus items in it, gear on my head(mask, hat, glasses), primary weapon and melee weapon.
Other than that everything else was deleted(pants, shoes, backpack, gloves).

Try swapping meat between frying pan(in inventory) and cooking pot(on ground), then place pot in inventory during a restart.

Additional Information

Please add restart warning to default servers!
