No mag guns spawning without ammo

Recommended Posts

> JUST A VIDEO TO RESUME THIS  SIMPLE IDEA

PROS:

  • There is no reason why weapons with mags have random bullets inside and weapons without mags don´t 
  • Players would loot more often this kind of weapons looking for ammo
  • It´s a simple add to enrich game experience
  • No more useless weapons that nobody moves over and over avoiding the loot to respawn
  • More chance to survive in the spawn locations and middle of the map and have something to fight when you want to hit the middle military bases.
  • Simple add to enrich something to do in the coast and prevent server hopping players that walk the hole map on an empty public server and then jump to a full near the northern military bases.

 

CONS:

  • I don´t know the impact that could have in the CLE (Central Loot Economy) or in game performance
  • Some of you said this could lead to a more KOS situations on the coast.

- more chance to BE a kos player on the coast

- simple add to enrich kos game experience on the coast

- in the zombie apocalypse the only weapons people would leave behind would be ones they ran out of ammo for

- get off the coast

Its probably something easily implemented, but not done so coastal battles aren't so prevalent.. cant test stuff out if everyone hangs on the coast 24/7.

I don´t think players would stay on the coast 24/7 simply because you add a random bullet inside a shotgun or magnum (I don´t say all the spawning shotguns should have ammo inside and there are already guns with full mags inside so I don´t get your point). Having said that, let´s be honest, most of the players just go north on empty servers to do pvp in the NWAF or TISY. The public servers are almost empty at coast.

- If you want to talk about the lore inconsistences of the game we can discuss here the hole year.

- Don´t take it so personal dude, I just want some feedback. Don´t know why you have to be so "toxic". If you want the devs send you the “hardcore true dayz player” medal because you play at north 24/7 on a first person only server and survive only by eating what you grow just say it, but that’s not what I’m talking about.

i remember a statement that the CLE couldn't handle loaded internal magazine guns at this time.

Only the development team knows if ammo will spawn with them  when the game is finished .

This will add nothing to the game except for more KoS-asshattery.

Sorry, not sorry.

Thx for the feedback.

Ok... so you think they should remove the guns that spawn with ammo inside (Im talking about weapons with mags that already spawn with ammo inside)?

Yup, I remember that too. Seems fair to assume that eventually internally loaded weapons will be able to spawn with ammo eventually.

You must be new.. just look at the lengths the devs have gone to get players moving from the coast.. i.e. practically no loot spawns there at the moment. Low tier rifles with internal mags i.e. Mosins with a high powered round, shotguns and Magnums spawning with ammo (big difference between those and a sporter .22 with a mag), ready to go, would simply enable players to stay at the coast and indulge in we want easy/ casual mode coastal warfare. Not much data from player movement to be gathered there, and pretty lonely for anyone inland so they'll migrate back to the coast also. Sad if you own/play on a private server and everyones playing on the coast as well, instead of taking their chances inland. Public is the place where coastal warfare is the preferred play style.. so i'd say no loot on the coast is working as intended then. 

P.S. Its great that you have passion for the game and are inspired with new ideas and endless possibilities that come with being a relative newcomer to DayZ..  we've probably all been there at some point. Your putting yourself out there on a public forum, which is brave and I commend you on it.. but understand that you may have missed things tried beforehand, problems with players meta gaming the system and clashing ideas between the player base (like this subject). Take criticism on the the chin and move on.. the forums need people with your enthusiasm.

Really appreciate your feedback dude.

I’m not new in game but probably I don´t have the time and knowledge inside the official forums that some of you have, so this kind of observations are always welcome to discard an idea or Transform it in something possible and favorable to the game.

Having said that, I must tell you that is kind of worrying the “toxicity” of some of the users in this forum, and I’m not talking about my post.

I usually follow and comment other ideas / suggestions just to give some feedback to the guy that thought it could be a good idea and when I see other people that give their opinions seems to forget this is a place of thoughts exchange. Of course that if you make 10 post about “dead players become Zombies idea” or “make dayz a battleground without zombies” and that kind of things you should expect someone that tells you: “dude, what the f. is wrong with you?”. But I’m not talking about that.

The other Dayz I read a post about sickness in Dayz. A guy makes a great job by posting ideas about the sickness effects, the different states and evolution of sickness, and tons of other stuff and 2 o 3 guys just post as a replay something like: “Quit this sh..t, this whole thing will be work on after the beta release” or “There are some other priorities right now” or a specific and disrespectful critic about some of the guys idea.

This is a suggestion forum, it supposed to create a debate about ideas that could have some real application in the game (sooner or later). I don´t know why this community become so toxic lately.

Wait. As far as I remember (don't know if that was .60 or .61 tho), you can find chambered weapons in the game! 

I always check the weapons I find, and there were times when they had ammo in them.

Now the thing is that the reason the Chernarus populace left the weapon behind is because they didn't had any ammo for it. So finding weapons with ammo would be unrealistic unless you find their previous owner lying aside :) (or in infected)

Didn't you think the chambered gun you found was droped by a player and not a spawned gun?

Nope, certain cases where just after a server restart in a town that I lived by.

Hi dude. I pretty sure that no mag weapons never spawn with ammo inside. The devs have being clear about it when they introduce only ammo inside spawning weapons with mags.

It weren't mag weapons. As far as I remember it was a sporter with no mag, an izh rifle, and a mosin with 1 shot. 

Got myself killed with the last one. Since then I quited testing the weapons for internal rounds and just click on empty when I find one

In case you are right that’s probably a gun left by a player (or a bug). If you have chamber a weapon, after the server restart that weapons could still be in the town with the ammo inside. I have never seen a no mag weapons with ammo inside (2.5k hours) and devs have been clear that they just add random ammo inside mag weapons or just inside individual mags.

I hope you are right but I’m positive this kind of situations are not intentional from devs.

      Hi guys, been playing a few other games and just had a few suggestions for improvised/crafted tools and weapons that could appear in DayZ.

      MOLOTOVS
      Obviously a gaming staple - can definitely have it's uses for PVE or PVP.
      Glass Bottle (Vodka, Devs? Da!) + Gas + Rag. Needs matches, or lighter in inventory to use.

      DYNAMITE
      With the mines and quarries around the northern end of the map, surely some old blasting dynamite remain in those locations, as a non-military alternative to blowing shit up.
      With the addition of the cabling system for hooking up power, surely something similar could work for detonators if you want an old-timey, plunger-based explosive trap.

      DYNAMITE BUNDLES
      Is one explosive not enough for you, you madman?
      Attach three or five sticks together with Duct Tape for extra kabooms or the biggest kabooms.

      Does anyone else have any suggestions, especially going off locations in the game that could have more reason to visit? Let me know below!

      Personally, I still miss the remote explosives from the Mod Days. Those were dirty.

      Random vehicle spawns would be good idea imo, it would be more dynamic so noboy would know where they are and would have to explore the map bit more to find one, some people would find it easier and some not, currently the spawns are fixed and thats the reason all cars getting picked so fast and also destroyed due to glitches and noob drivers.

      For the despawn it should get gone asap after all parts are ruined and spawn somewhere else, its because nobody probably will use or have the matchbox to destroy the vehicles also players should drive more carefully knowing that it could be ruined forever after an impact.

      Part #1 / Part #2 / Part #3 / Part #4
      (With Pictures)
       
      Hi again ladys and gents! This is the second part of some ideas / suggestions about Dayz SA that i have compile from my own thought and from some other user’s ideas (with some twists)
      If you didn`t see the first part, I highly recommend you do it I'll be very grateful: Dayz Suggestions Part #1 [With pictures] I also recommend to check this guy’s wishlist that’s give me a lot of good ideas to imagine and discussed: Reddit Wishlist Of curse i always recommend check the Reddit Suggestion threat: Click Here!  
      First some clarifications:
      English is not my native language, so I truly apology for the grammatical errors that may exist. Post format: IDEA + ILUSTRATION + SHORT SUMMARY (I can amplify more in coments) Each idea tries to be as achievable and reasonable as possible according to the Dayz spirit (Survivalism - post apocalyptic atmosphere) and actual game possibilities.  
      Let’s start (again)!

       
      #11 BLUR ON SCOPES AND VARIATIONS
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY: This is a 3-part idea.
      1) BLURRY WITH SNIPER SCOPE: I love the sniper view of Dayz because is quite realistic. You don’t see the edges of the scope like other games or a blur background (I’m talking strictly of snipers rifles – scopes). The Dayz sniper view give you immersion needed and at the same time the dangers of “sniper`s eye” (when you just focus in the target and forgot the surroundings).
      The only thing I would like to add is a simple blurry effect at the edges of the scope (inside part) to give the perfect realistic effect. Just a details, simply to implement (I think) but amazing to the sniper view.
      To give you some reference: Example picture of real sniper (Im sorry for the nature of the picture, but it was the best picture to refer the idea).
      2) BLURRY WITH OTHER SCOPES: Next we have other scopes that don’t have the black background. Instead, you can (unrealistic) see the background quite well (Same sharpness and distance) while you are using the scope. I’m talking about Kashtan, ACOG, PU scope, RVS, etc. For this cases I would add a blurry effect but only in the background. Some illustration:
       

      You can also use a motion blur effect that looks similar to this picture here and looks great: Example
       
      3) BLURRY WITHOUT SCOPE: Finally, we have the no scoped guns (pistols, shotguns or just weapons without the scope attachment). When you aim any of this guns, there is no deep of field effect at all. You can see your target with the same sharpness of your gun, regardless of the distance. I propose (in the same line that the scope blurry) give some realistic and really cool effect like this: when you aim your gun without scope, your gun and arms suffer a little blurry effect (very light and minimalistic to the view). Here is some illustration with the before and after effect:
       

       

      #12 HOLD BREATH WHILE HIDDING
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY: The other day I was a freshie and I try to kill a guy with a stick. He went unconscious but his buddies start chasing me. I run dodging bullets for about 6 minutes and I hide in a forest. Thy pass me by but couldn’t see me, but then one of them hear my breath at the same moment he was surrounding my tree. He found me and you can figure out the rest of the story.
      I don’t want to limit the breathing sounds at all. I think is a great piece of the game and provides realistic situations. But I was thinking if in the same way you can hold your breath to stabilize your pulse, it would be cool if you can also do it without a weapon to hide your breath just for 5 o 6 seconds when the enemy pass near you or when you want to hear your be able to hear your surroundings. Of course, when you release the air, the sound should be even more noisy than normal… but you already survive the danger or identify where the shoots came from.
       

      #13 TRADING SYSTEM BETWEEN PLAYERS
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY:  I think this is needed a long time ago, I’m going to explain my idea that is not to fancy but I really think it could work. When you exchange a weapon or item with a friend, this is probably not needed. You just drop the item to the floor and done, he picks it up from vicinity.
      But, most of the time, when we meet another player that we don`t know and you want to be friendly with him... one of the first thinks that comes to any player’s mind is: “Do you want to trade some stuff”? This is a great way to interact with other players and help each other to survive. Adding a trading system that works fast and simple could bring a lot of more friendly encounters and interaction between players.
      HOW IT WORKS: Follow the image above while reading this:
      First, when there are no players around you, the layer “TRADE” is hidden. When one player is near you (I mean, really close to you) it`s shows. If there 2 o 3 more players right next to you, multiple layers could appear. Then you have to drag the item to the TRADE section just like you do to drop the item to the floor. It would shout the item in place but you still have the item in your inventory (Implementation must require methods to avoid duping). The other player should do the same and his item will appear in the same trade section. Neither you nor the other player can pick up others stuff at this point. After this, you need to right click and trade to confirm you are agreeing with the exchange to each of your items and the other player do the same. After this, you can pick up others items and he can pick up yours. Many games use this kind of transaction system and works fine. Dayz should have something similar. Maybe with some more elaboration that I can provide, but I try to do it as simple and achievable as possible.
       

      #14 BIG HANDBAGS
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY: If you usually play alone, you probably won’t understand the need of this. But if you have a clan, group or play on a RP server you know there are some people that are called: Looters. They go to military base to get gear from the team and full the tents. They are quite value these days since the multiple duping fixes.
      So, without further introductions, the idea is simple: just add some big Handbags that have the capacity of a barrel (3 guns). It replaces your backpack (check the circle image) and reduces a bit your movement of speed. Same as the containers, you can only access the interior by putting the handbag in your hands. Big handbags can be used to transport weapons from one base to another, of course for looting and (when they fix the apple glitch) your squad could have a “carrier” that uses this bag to stock food, medicine and supplies. I think even small handbags are needed for some post-apocalyptic atmosphere.  
       

      #15 BLOOD SPLATTER OR BLOODIED HEAD ONLY WITH HEADSHOT
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY: First of all, this is not a new idea, it has been already discussed in some forums. I think it could be amazing if this would be implemented and I do some research about it founding this pictures.
      Nevertheless, I want to post it because I think is achievable at some point if you just only limit the blood splash to a “blooded head” when you kill a player by headshot. I mean: I don’t want the blood sticks to a wall or into the floor like this images, but it would be cool if the head of the character you kill gests covered in blood or just change the dead skin by one that have the face with some kind of “destruction” (no gore). It would be a nice touch.
       

      #16 PASSENGER TRAINS IN DAYZ
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY:  No, I’m not asking for a functional train that could transport us through Chernarus. Im just wander if Chernarus never had passenger trains. With the announced new railways, we can expect that they can add some passenger trains like the one of the right.
      The kind of wagons that you can get inside, walk between the sits and camp through the windows. Where you can find food inside and have some more complexity of the actual cargo wagons that have nothing inside. I think If we now have the new caravan structures, we can have some passenger wagons too.
       

      #17 SCOPES REFLECTIONS / GLARE
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY:  I know is clearly no time for this kind of idea and to make it even possible we need first correct all dynamic lights systems and some other priorities. But, it would be great if somehow Dayz have a good reflection system where, when you have the sun above you and only when you are aiming, your scope makes a glare in the opposite direction. (Check this example) This idea should work simultaneously with a good “sun protective items” (don´t know how to call it). In few words: we need the sunglass, the biker’s helmets and some other items avoid the glare for player’s eyes at the same time they make glare or reflection to others (under some extract circumstances).
       

      #18 SAFETY ON STANCE (BUILDING TRUST AND DOUBLE CARRYING)
      ILUSTRATION

       
      SUMMARY:  With the new animation system this could be definitely possible. The idea is simple: just add a “safety on stance” similar to the pictures to the right where your gun can´t be pull out as fast as the normal stance can and you need to put the safety off to be able to shoot. This could be a simple animation (by pressing F5 for example) or, if you wish, you can add a “safety on / off” key to the guns (maybe by pressing the T key or double T). With the safety on, the rest position should be the one of the right (or tons of others like: gun aiming the floor, crossed arms on the gun, etc.) with the “quick aim limitations” I mention before (adding of course you have to put the safety off to be able to shoot). When the safety is off, you have the normal rest stance and fast aim as always.
      What’s the propose besides the good looking? Dayz encounters and no KOS situations are basically generated from building some initial trust. When you meet another player (both of you with loaded weapons) the only way to create that trust is by putting your gun in your back or inventory (when you can). But what about you are double carrying? Some of you have to drop the weapon to the floor or put the mag out. This could be a better and more realistic solution.

       
      Ok guys, that´s all for this post.
      As I said before, I have a few more ideas that I want to share but I need your feedback fist.
      Sorry one more time for my terrible English,
      tips or corrections will be highly valued
