Important functionality missing: SpawnRelocation

Post by Dreepa »

In terms of game content there is one basic thing missing: Re-locate spawn point item.

For example, in minecraft you use a bed to do this.

In a game with procedurally generated terrain and huge playfield, something like this should be a must-have functionality. I know it can be done through console commands if you are running adming. However, this should be a normal game content function available to any player really.

A placeable beacon? Something to mark "spawn here!" And you could have several.

One near ammo and admit storage. Or the mall.
"No! This one goes there! That one goes There! Right?!"

Valid point. Important for multiplayer.

But... this thread belongs in the Suggestions sub-forum. Hopefully @Koub will notice it and move it.

the object exists in the map maker, so i assume it can be used via console commands. just need to find out what it is and write it into a mod.

Such a core function shouldn't really be outsourced to a mod... imho
