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 time between individual loot respawns.


MUST READ. These are the rules for the Restock configuration variable:

If Value is equal to (=) 0, Respawn item type in bulk to reach Nominal Value.

However, If Value is not equal to (!=) 0, then Value=Time in seconds to respawn 1 additional item type, until Nominal Value is reached.

  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

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

    If you're using the File Manager, double-click the file to open it for editing.

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

  2. Where it says "Restock" 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
