Before editing any of the server configuration files, please make sure you have made a backup copy. We can only provide you with an original/default file if you break yours.


This guide covers how to change the amount of minimum amount of loot before the server begins to spawn more loot.

If you want loot to spawn more quickly, increase the "min" value - and vice versa.

  1. Using the File Manager or an FTP program of your choice, navigate to the following directory on your server...

    Chernarus: mpmissions\dayzOffline.chernarusplus\db\
    Livonia: mpmissions\dayzOffline.enoch\db

    *if you've changed the mission your server runs, this path will be different!

    Download the "types.xml" file to your PC and then open it with a text editor of your choice, we suggest Notepad++.

    Or, if using the File Manager, double-click the file to open it for editing.

  2. Where it says "min" under the item, change it to any number you want.

  3. Save the file.

  4. If using FTP, re-upload to the same location on your server, replacing the old types.xml
