Chance for loot to spawn

3 posts in this topic

In previous versions of Exile, we had "spawnChancePerBuilding" to set a chance that a building would spawn loot. Now we have all new loot settings. Can someone explain to me what settings I need to adjust so that not every building spawns loot for players and/or how I can reduce the chances for loot to spawn in each building?

Hope this helps!

I can see how now you would have to adjust multiple areas under

maximumPositionCoverage = 30

This is a percentage value. The lower you have this number the less loot you will get spawn in a building. Default is set to 30. 

 maximumNumberOfLootSpotsPerBuilding = 3;

 maximumNumberOfItemsPerLootSpot = 2

In the event you are asking location of the file. Remember that the setting for building loot spawns are found in the mission file under config.cpp. In previous versions it was inside @ExileServer/addon/exile_server_config.pbo under its config.cpp.

This version is easier to find. The descriptions of each option are self explanitory.

class CfgExileLootSettings
{
    /**
     * Lifetime of loot in minutes. Synchronize this with
     * the garbage collector settings of your server
     * CfgSettings!
     */
    lifeTime = 8;

    spawnInterval = 30;

    /**

     *

    maximumPositionCoverage = 30;

     /**

    maximumNumberOfLootSpotsPerBuilding = 3;

    /**

    maximumNumberOfItemsPerLootSpot = 2;

    spawnRadius = 60;

    minimumDistanceToTraderZones = 500;

    /**

I have noticed that these settings are NOT in 9.61... not that I can see anyway. Am I missing something?
