How you Spawn / Spawn Locations

4 posts in this topic

I'd Like to see some variations on how survivors spawn added to DayZ.

For example:

  • Parachuting in. (Able to control where you land. Example BF3.
  • Waking up in a ditch.
  • Spawning higher up the coast closer to Berezino.
  • Waking up next to / or in a life raft on the beach.

Anyone else have any other ideas?

I think this would add a freshness to the cycle of spawn and death.

One minute ur drinking with ur mates, then you wake up, in a ditch, hung over as fuck, in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. #FML

On topic: seems nice, esp the parachute. Doesn't arma 2 allready have this in the game? so it wouldn't need to be developped just for day z? Seems like an easy fix for me.

i do like how the spawns are now for one fact (the south is quick-death and noob territory, the further north you travel, the more difficult, and rewarding everything becomes, longer living players, better weapon spawns, etc...) I do like the idea of new types of spawns, maybe on a crashed boat/liferaft (the boat being out of gas, or engine failure) i'm not so sure about the parachuting method (hard to explain within the story of everything, "what did you parachute out off, and why? and also why here in chernarus?") i don't have any clever ideas at hand, but i do like the thought of new ways of spawning in (especially if you're doing it alot :D)

This would totally happen to me! lol

This would be like a "Shaun of the Dead" moment :D

      I was thinking of a way to construct a good respawn system, and I figured, set spawn points within buildings, and choose a spawn point by basically checking  if a player is within that region and at a safe distance away to provide 'elbow room' to explore.


      Intentions to benefit the game system and intentions of a future spawn system I'd like to see:

      ∙A Respawn system where people aren't going to 'shoot all the noobs on the shore' Because they know they spawn there, or basically, to make spawning less predictable than was inthe Mod.

      ∙To prevent people from intending to target noobs and go to a certain area, preventing mechanic abuse. (Noob Camping / Abusive Kill Farming)

      ∙To prevent people from server hopping and 'stumbling' upon caches of goods, future stashed vehicles, bases. Since people would hide their items in similar places, people can log in to all the 'sweet spots' to scan predictable areas.

      ∙To prevent Sniper Camping, and overall Bad experiences for spawns whether experienced or Newbie.

       
       
      Optional conditions:

      ∙Where items are around ( A place in a region where a certain number of Items exist within a certain radius thereof)
       
      ∙Where a criteria of scavengable items can be found within a certain range: Is it near anty kind of medical supplies, is it near food, is it near water sources.

      ∙Is a player with a ranged weapon within a certain range? (Because of Snipers / Noob Farmers)


      Side Notes:

      It would make rational / logical sense to me to start off in a building, and maybe a brief text intro of what is outside, point being, to provide some situational awareness. such as 'I've awakened to hear zombies outside'
      Or  'I had a good sleep' Which would indicate there are no zombies,

      Also, I feel it adds to the situational awareness to state where my location is on the screen because most people need to figure out where they are with a map, and to just spawn ina building is like waking up there, whoever got there should know where they are if we want to have more of a rational story behind it. (Like I saw in the Mod when I was playing it a while back)


      Conclusion: I know in most servers Camping / Farming won't be an issue, but a good respawn system with integrity outlasts in the long run and especially on high traffic servers where there is a higher chance sketchy individuals would like to abuse the system for sick pleasure or easy profits.

      I would also like to see suggestions.

      Ok so I was playing on Namalsk on an American server (I am not in America so I can get lag sometimes). I found a heli and gave it to a guy because I can't fly for shit. I stayed in for a bit and then jumped out over the forest somewhere but while I was parachuting I got disconnected for a high ping (520). When I log back in will I still be parachuting or will I fall to my death?? I have a DMR but nothing really special so I don't care all that much if I do die. I don't know if this is the right topic but I am a fairly new player and this is a noobish kind of question.
