A long time ago DayZRP experiemented with having limited fuel in all the fuel tanks around the Chernarus map. It worked quite well, but unfortunetly there was a complication with helicopters. Helis are real fuel guzzlers, and the limited fuel left them stranded as it was unfeasible to fly them.

Now when heli's are removed from DayZRP, and only plan to return to S3 in 1.4.0, it begs the question: Should limited fuel return to S1 and S2, two servers that wont have helicopters anyway?

To me, the advantages are quite clear. The old system we tried led to fuel shortages and fuel actually being considered a valuable commodity. It wasnt so extremly rare that people had to abandon their cars all the time, but it was still rare enough that people had to take it into consideration.

How does this work and what would it mean?

For those unfamiliar with the old system, it basicly worked like this. You siphoned fuel like usual from a fuel tank with a jerry, but each fuel tank only had a limited load, explained through text messages. And it didnt reset until after restart, which could lead to fuel shortages on well-populated servers.

This could in turn lead to fuel being a valuable thing, and with the TP and several settlements coming up we could actually see it as a trade commodity.

I dont really have to explain how this would make all kinds of sense in the apocalypse, because obviously there arent really any refinaries making more of the stuff and shipping it out to these fuel tanks.

Let me know what you fellas think.

Why not adds to realism , cuts down on cars , makes fuel worth something

I remember those times, Brr. All though I agree with helicopters gone it seems way more balanced.

Bring it back!

All for it. I always wondered why this had been removed.

With the amount of cars we have now, fuel should be something worth now. It also encourages trading. -> add plz.

I'd prefer very limited fuel to be honest that only restocks at restart like before, but this means that the tanks have minimal fuel in them. Maybe enough to fill like half a Jerry can or something, maybe even a quarter.

This does depend on if it's possible to make it so Jerry Cans only fill a certain amount and not full depending on the amount of fuel that's in the tanks that are being used.

That would require significant effort on our behalf whilst the method mentioned would require minimal effort :)

I'd also prefer it as I hardly ever have a car.

And it would lead to more realism, also if there is only limited fuel then we should make the little white fuel tanks a source of fuel to.

In to many occasions have I driven towards one of these fuel tanks hoping that I would get fuel out of these.

It's already been coded, and the main issue that was made by it is no longer here, so why not?

It only makes sense and adds realism, not to mention forces players to search for fuel. Fuel will also become something of a currency which is great IMO.

Huge +1 from me.

I voted yes, but what is to stop people from bringing 20 jerrycans and to just drain a fueltank for themselves or just to store it for when they need it?

It was removed? :troll:

Of course I want it!

Nothing. That's thinking ahead. If people want to hoard fuel for themselves or possibly exploit their fuel stockpile to up trade prices or something, then that's just part of the game imo.

Also, with the last system, you could only on average get like 2 or 3 jerries from each tank iirc.

Isn't this basically what people do with vehicles now anyway? ;)

Also imagine how valuable those filled jerrycans would be in Trade post?

Voted yes also.

But, does it refresh every restart? Kind of unfair for people that play directly after restart, versus people that play 4 hours later, isn't it?

I like the idea of fuel being a valuable asset. It's hardly realistic that if you have one Jerry Can you're sorted with unlimited fuel. Would be cool to see guys out scavenging for fuel, stockpiling it and using it to trade. ~ Voted yes.

Would love to see this be introduced again. Remember when this was added and when driving you had to carefully make decisions as the fuel pump could be empty when you used it.

And remove from TP to actually build an economy and this would also decrease the usage of vehicles. Increasing their value from a throw away item.

Also. Imagine clans fighting over Fuel trucks. They could fill it up and escort it to the TP to trade the fuel for goods. Much better basis for kick-starting an economy instead of vehicles.

Imagine the possibilities of a fuel convoy!

I think this could work - would also make a lot of people panic when they're on low fuel - but then again, it's hardly fair for the people who don't get the chance to stock up on fuel - It'd HAVE to be refreshed every now and again - or CTC bringing in HUGE fuel shipments a few times at TP considering wipes (where the fuel DEFINELTLY get's reset) only happen once every four or five months.

You have my +1 though, could create very interesting RP.
