On the water I agree, on the kitchen no.
You can also cook with a completely rusted and perforated metal sheet, at the fire is no problem...
We can argue about smoking, because to smoke the meat the barrel it should be able to contain the smoke. But when you close it, it shouldn't make all that smoke.
If we have to look for realism, and I agree, let's try to do it well and in a "logical" way.

Riddick_2K added a comment to T162623: Items inside a cookingpot on a gas Cooker despawn after server restart.

Any object placed inside a pot attached to a stove with the canister, not just grenades. And I've seen this in vanilla public servers and also in mine downloadable from Steam.
Whether in a car or in a barrel. After the restart, the pan is detached from the stove and expelled outside. Inside the barrel (physically looking inside the opening, NOT inside the inventory) and above or below the vehicle. This has happened to me several times before.

Riddick_2K added a comment to T144892: Night Time is extremely bright.

But hasn't anyone answered that DayZ's brightness has a big BUG?
I myself have always complained that dark nights were too dark to play, and some replied that it was not true ... only 1 or 2 patches ago I happened to log into the game and see a "decent" night: always dark , but where you could at least see where to put your feet. After a while ALL BLACK again!
I searched the net for a long time if it was a patch change and then a defect or vice versa and found one that explained the point.
It's a BUG of DayZ brightness.
The brightness bar does NOT work and the contrast (which doesn't even exist) starts indefinitely.
To unlock the brightness bar you need to change the value of "Hardware Antialiasing" setting and this allows you to "unlock the contrast" (from the maximum position) and to be able to get an effect while moving the brightness bar. AND FINALLY you can see the game at least in a decent way (I was able to see some beautiful nights, finally).
Once you have adjusted the brightness and unlocked the contrast, you can reset "Hardware Antialiasing" to the initial value.
It will work for a while, then it will fail again. Just repeat the procedure and you will be able to "enjoy the nights" for a while longer.
A lot of folks who complain about BLACK nights, should search the forums better (I have explained this a few times, and someone before me that I have read and repeated but it is NOT my job to do so. And the explanation has NOT even been pinned at the top!)
Those who complain of "too bright" nights have NEVER gone out into the woods on a moonlit night. DO IT FIRST!
The programmers amaze me that they have NEVER noticed.
And I got tired of reading everything for the forums and of "fighting against everything and everyone" to have a "decent and plausible" game ... moreover seeing also DELIBERATELY absurd choices of these programmers. Because a flaw is a flaw: programmers have to fix it, but you can also "help for the common good" (Sure that a "thanks for the lost time" as a "default" answer to ALL reports, it would be good manners !!!!! Finding the defects would be a OBLIGATION of the programmers, NOT of the players !!!), but "deliberate obscene choices" NO! (backpacks that must be emptied to be stored, fences and tents increasingly difficult to position [it should be the opposite], blocking the NVGs for a few "lucky" or "dishonest" [at this point they could remove them], the exaggerated consumption of shoes, food, tools, etc ... and many other annoying and / or unreal things made on purpose a game that is becoming more and more a "grotesque war FPS" than one of "survival from a pandemic".
I have found other annoying bugs, but I don't know whether to open a tickets or not ... so what changes?
Patch after patch I've seen something fixed, something else broken (sometimes even on purpose), adding useless or stupidly harmful things, leaving out really useful things, and NOT wanting to repair vehicles just for "stupid whims" (bring the check back to the client!)
Let's see if this comment will stay here or be deleted!

Riddick_2K added a comment to T146522: Basebuilding: Fence / Watchtower building behavior suggestions..

Agree with almost everything, but most important of all is the ability to build anywhere.
*) Now it is enough that the ground has some slight (I repeat SLIGHT) undulation and it is no longer possible to build anything. It becomes a nightmare to fence something, you start the job believing you can complete it, and then you find that the "construction ghost" is no longer activated anywhere... and you can no longer complete anything and you have a lot of lost work.
*) And in addition, it should be possible to bring the fence posts together completely, as you do in reality, and not have to leave large spaces between 2 fences... where you can look and shoot while aiming comfortably. It's ugly and unrealistic.
*) The fences should also be able to be built at a height of 1&½x or 2x at least to avoid it being too easy to jump into them (easily using a car or a truck, I saw... I don't know if this is still the case with 1.13)
*) The fences should also be placed high up and on the walls... it seems stupid, but it is the easiest way to "close a window", which, normally and easily, should be done in reality... but without having to write a special structure, you can just use the "simple fence" (already present in the game) allowing you to build it even at the top and leaning against the wall. (± how it works with the famous mod)
*) And please... PLEASE... at least tighten the "border bubble" with the other objects, too often it is enough to have any bullshit around that you can't build anything, neither inside nor outside the buildings... and this is bad for the game and also very unrealistic.
This would probably be enough to greatly improve the entire construction system.

Riddick_2K added a comment to T159840: Players list , their names and information is now public even when RCON is protected by password.

And what would the "problem" be? Do you know that on the net and with the PC we are all tracked in all possible ways? I understand when you have to do a "personal" search on the net, for this there is TOR and various PlugIns for Firefox, but for video games, being afraid of "being tracked" seems to me something out of this world... pure paranoia.
The vast majority of FPS servers distribute information about the players present, and I'll tell you it's a very useful thing that I always use. I cannot open the PC (I have one dedicated only to video games, with various HD for "type" of video games: each has all the O.S. optimized for that video game) and load an O.S. just to see if there is anyone on the servers that interest me and who... that's absurd.
I have always evaluated the various video games even from the active servers that I found on GameTracker (for example)
For the Battlefield series I go directly into the Battlelog via Firefox from the main PC to see who is and where... and evaluate IF to open the PC from game or not... depending on who I find and where. It is an indispensable service. In fact, for Battlefield 1 (which I still enjoy playing) & BF5 (which is crap) not finding this information I play it very rarely...
Fortunately, on DayZ there is Battlemetrics, which gives some of this information... otherwise it would be a mess having to just open the PC, access the account, load the Game Browser ONLY to see some servers... then for those 4 shit info that from the official one (not even the exact number of players! But you can be so *, because this is deliberate, not a defect), luckily there is "DZSA Launcher" that at least give some more info.
And I'll tell you one more thing too.
On certain versions of Battlefield there was the possibility to watch the game from the subjective vision of each player present in a server, which then... unfortunately... on new games it is no longer present... Even on Battlefield there are a lot of problems with cheaters, and this was a good way to limit the problem.
Even if the subjective vision was "server side" and not "client side" (you couldn't see exactly the player screen with the various cheat menus), but being able to see what exactly he was doing, you already had a more precise idea of "how he played ". This helped a lot to "pinch" those who played dishonestly

And this is a thing good and right

Meanwhile, there is no need to insult!
I don't know if it's a Google translation problem (I don't know English), but from my experience with the broken bodywork you can drive normally. I do it regularly with the old Skoda and with a new Niva. Maybe because it's not ALL broken, but it has damaged parts that cannot be repaired with epoxy resin ... and I continue to drive them.
And I repeat that this is right.
If you want to make a car disappear, take out all the water, start the engine and let it go until it breaks down. When the engine light turns red, that car will be ready to disappear after a short time. I've seen it several times.
Maybe, if you want to be safer, remove all the wheels and body parts as well. With the engine melted it disappears for sure.

Does BI still exist or are they all dead?
How is it that nobody even answers?
Is it because we have already paid for the game by now?

You haven't read what I wrote.
Read it better.
The external sheet metal has no necessary function other than the aesthetic one, therefore it is of no use to anything essential, the vehicles can move without problems. This game does not foresee damage to the chassis (which is essential), but only to the external bodywork.
Get over it, this is it.

I don't think it's a defect but a logic characteristic of the game. The bodywork is not very important for the functionality of a vehicle, as only the external part can be damaged and not the chassis. The important things in this game are the wheels, the battery, the spark plug, and the radiator ... all of which you can replace. Then there is the engine, which is fundamental. This alone should be a condition for deciding whether a vehicle should disappear or remain: a destroyed and irreparable engine renders a vehicle useless and it is right for it to disappear. If the engine is still repairable, if the bodywork is all broken and accessories are missing, you can always repair the engine, add all the accessories and play with the broken bodywork: the vehicle is still usable and it is not right or logical for it to disappear. .
My 5 cents

Riddick_2K added a comment to T155477: Unable to Repair Sarka with Pipe Wrench.

I have found a possible solution.
You have to take off the hood, climb over the engine with the pipe wrench in hand and crouch. If you move around a little while looking at the engine the option to repair it should appear.
Obviously the distance in which this option can appear is too short. Developers should increase it a bit, so that it can become visible even without all these maneuvers.

Why intentional?
What's the point of making this game more and more unrealistic and stupid?
I don't understand the meaning of this, if there is any sense... :-0
