DayZ Standalone Update Fixes Loot Related Bugs and Improves Performance

Latest DayZ update for alpha version has been released, which helps in fixing a lot of in-game bugs and along with several new items being introduced to the players, it also improves overall performance via engine and server upgrades.

In the DayZ official patch notes it says:

This build continues with small bug fixes and several engine changes, late addition of a significant change to the server variable processing have provided us a major performance boost on the server of around 5-10 FPS.

This helps with a great deal of issues and results in a much smoother game experience from players even on a smooth server. Once several more of these optimizations are made it will allow us to increase player/zombie numbers and enable loot and zombie respawning.

This new update fixes some of the well-known issues like, Loot was not spawning in the military tents, whenever the server was under load, delayed actions from the clients and sometimes looting a dead body in the game may make a ghost clone copy of the inventory. These aforementioned big issues are being fixed in the latest update.

New animations are also added in the game, players will be able to take and hide the rifle in crouched run, new animations for SKS reload are added and firing weapon when sprinting will transition player into the aimed run.

The game was crashing for a lot of players; following crashes have been fixed as well.

  • Crash: Irregular crash of server in corpse garbage collector consequence of this is that the bodies will not disappear if other player is in vicinity
  • Crash: Creating item using recipe system caused serious server crash when not enough space in inventory
  • Crash: Client crash on exit, all systems 100% reproduction
  • System: Previous build caused overzealous starvation to occur
