Inventory wipe of all players carrying unreleased items

Recommended Posts

Survivors,

as some of you may have noticed or experienced first hand, some players have been recently spotted using weapons and other items that are not meant to be spawning in 0.62. These items are part of a pool of assets that were left in the game files, but were never properly configured for in-game usage.

These items can break the game in many different ways and were never a part of an official update simply because we decided to not continue with their implementation on the legacy technology of 0.62.

Besides the fact that using such items is causing technical issues, spawning them is only possible by modifying the game and therefore by breaching our current EULA and terms of use.

We’re planning to wipe the inventory of all players carrying the M249, Steyr Scout, Golden Desert Eagle, Saiga and all applicable magazines for these weapons. If you want to prevent losing all of your gear, please remove the aforementioned items from your inventory as soon as possible, and do not pick, use or store them.

For the time being, we are investigating the breach and will be taking measures in order to remove these items from the game.

Thank you.

Why is a Golden Desert Eagle planned for DayZ?

How does that even make sense? Neither US troops nor Russian troops carry these. So where will they be found? Heli crashes I'm guessing? Makes no sense.

Focus on what your fanbase wants, which is atmosphere and realism and a fucking authentic experience.

It's been in the game files for ages.  Perhaps it was included as something for modders to play around with, or maybe just for *gasp* fun.

This was already asked before a very very long time ago. Why is there a golden desert eagle in dayz.... Why you ask? because there is drug lords everywhere in this world and some of them can afford a golden AK 47 or a golden desert eagle as a trophy or gift.

Perhaps there is only one for all servers together. You should not worry that you see this yourself ingame.

My theory is that it was put there to be funny... and also as another consumer of .357.

So in other words , m249 scheduled release is with .63 ? That would be awesome .

No.

Don't get too excited guys. Our goal for the initial release of 0.63 (in terms of firearms) is to stay within the already familiar arsenal.

Now let's get back to the original topic, we're still talking about 0.62 here. Thanks :)

I'm still curious where these guns were. Were they on the official servers? I know they had these guns on some modded/hacked servers. If they were on the official servers then that's something new for me, since I never saw one of these guns on the official servers.

Edit: Of course I'm not talking about the guns being in the loot table but people who managed to get a hold of these guns in some black magic way. I know people were able to hack in guns which weren't in the loot table. Remember the time when a lot of people had a shit ton of M4's even though they weren't in the loot table at that time?

which I do not quite understand. why are content that is not needed left in the game files. which does not exist can not be used. Is it a lot of work to remove content? Or is there a specific reason why it is as it is?

Those items are work in proggress. They do exist in game files, but are purposely set not to spawn because they may not be fully complete or just there isn't working system for usage of those items. For example, I think you probably saw those weapons like Desert Eagle, Saiga 12K and etc. Those items are in game files, but they aren't spawning because they probably don't have right animation, sound or mechanics developed. Here's one example:

      Now I dont want this to come off as needlessly aggressive, or overly sentimental so I will try and be as balanced as i can.
       
      I understand the Devs are busy, and that this may not factor in at all, and maybe it shouldn't as most story's of sadness can't be helped by one company.
       
      For those of you that dont know who Wobo is, hes a guy who for pretty much half of the early access of DayZ (which is now like 2.5 years) has been making videos.  And more than anything the reason why this is relevant to the devs, hes been making videos that pretty much no one could be bothered trying to figure out, or explain to us.  Its because of Wobo we the community learned about the Hidden Bone Stat that causes instant death.  Its because of Wobo we learned the mechanics and specifics of how damage works when received to our player or their items.  Both HUUUUUUUUUUUGE aspects of the game that have been previously hidden or unexplored.  And many more things regarding all aspects of the games mechanics.
       
      Now you can argue that, the reasons why the Devs didn't broadcast this stuff to the community was either for the fun sense of discovery for us to figure out, or to keep us in the dark on potential mechanics that could be viewed as broken or could maybe be abused.
       
      Who knows, but i would suggest that on any other game with any other development team, this would be information that would be broadcast to the community and explained in detail by the devs themselves for the sake of transparency, or just for suggestions and feedback.
       
      Anyway, Wobo has done us the community a service, requiring hours of testing and fact gathering (DayZ doesn't reset easily, all tests are done by running fresh spawns to a location and repeating), and he's done the devs a huge service by shining light on a bunch of their mechanics that needed reworking or changing (yes they probably were behind the scenes anyway).
       
      His mum has become sick and now he is going to be her soul carer, meaning no internet and PC because they are luxuries he and she cant afford anymore.  As stated in this heart breaking video.
       
      It would be appreciated by me, and the community if something could be done about this.  I feel Wobo has been an admirable member of the community, in both content and attitude, and has serviced the development of DayZ positively  more than most.  If the devs could take note of this, or perhaps Bohemia as a whole, and either fund him keeping his PC, or fund him being able to have the internet.  Or perhaps bring him on as an outside tester of the game, to allow him to test builds and its mechanics while being able to care for his mother at home?  Or maybe even just funding his internet costs for the further extent of Beta?  I don't know the practical costs of such a thing, but i would imagine its a relative pittance to a large company like Bohemia, and clearly funding isn't a problem for DayZ until it is completed. haha
       
      Anyway, in summary.  Do what you can, if you read this and you are a Dev, acknowledge and help in anyway possible, please.  And if you are a DayZ player, please do the same.  By either joining the stream as stated in the video, or donating wherever or whatever you can.  To this lovely guy who's been dealt a shit hand, and we all love our mommas!
       
      Sorry if this is melodramatic or demanding, but this is when the internet can shine and really do something nice for someone who deserves it.  And I never write posts like this.
       
      Thanks and Peace!
