  • I recently modded my DayZ server for PS4 and things spawned in nicely, then all of a sudden nothing spawned in anymore. Can someone please help me out? Why would things just stop respawning? every building, shed and car empty or gone. I don;t know how to fix it. Ive done a couple reinstalls too.

  • Are Zombies showing up? If Zombies are showing up it is probably an error in your types.xml file if no zombies its probably a cfgspawnabletypes.xml error. Its probably a spawnabletypes error because of the cars not showing up. What do you mean you recently modded your server? As in downloaded a mod from Steam or just changed your xml's?


    You can add and xml plugin to notebook ++ that can check your xml's for proper syntax. I highly recomend it.

  • thanks. This has been really frustrating. How do I get an xml validator? I'm new to this. How do i use mods from steam? Would either of you care to give me some guidance? We removed the zombies. We don't want them.

  • The plugins administrator in notebook++ has a list of tools there is an xml tool plugin you can add there or you can just google and cut and paste on some websites. notebook ++ is better because no file size restrictions. If you don't have notebook++ get it its a free download. Do you have a file transfer protocol program (ftp) like FileZilla? You need one for steam mods for sure.


    I don't know if this lets you but if you post your xml's I will look at them for you. Pretty sure you can attach the files below.

  • Do you have an email I can send them to? Like I said, I'm ok with computers and simple changes with these files, But something isn't right and also I haven't figured out discord yet. I know I should. The server we want right now is zombie free. we want to do PVP in the military areas only for now. Lots of weapons available, M4A1, LAR, Vaiga, VSD plus all the mags and optics. Also the Glock, FNX45 and mags. I had lots of epinephrine, tetracycline and multivitamins spawning in as well. I had tons of nails, hatchet, axe saws and other items for base building as well as military boots and clothes spawning in. but for whatever reason they just stopped. the server isn't big. its me and my nephew plus several friends for now who want to go head to head in pvp and also build bases and just have fun. I did remove the wolves and bears as a temporary thing so my nephew and I could run around learn the map and gather loot. Not sure if that messed things up. I know we haven't heard or seen and cows, hens, pigs or deer in a couple days now. If you have a spawnableitems file and a types file that works would you share it? I do appreciate the help. thank you

  • Cherno is right that is your problem for sure except I'm pretty sure it needs this

    </spawnabletypes> the / matters


    If you figure out discord I can help with steam mods easily. It will be hard on here. If we can talk it will be really easy. I was really frustrated not long ago so I know what you are dealing with and someone helped me so I will pay it forward
