What is persistence?

Persistence allows items in game to continue to exist on the server if they a dropped on the floor. This allows players to potentially build up a cache of items that they have looted from around the map.   Persistence also allows items like tents to store scavenged gear, without it de-spawning. This allows players to collect items in game over a large period of time, without having to worry about any of it being deleted or removed from the world

Issues with persistence

Some servers may suffer from a few persistence related problems. The following problems are sometimes down to persistence and should be reported to our support team, who will be able to give you a hand to get the server working again.

* Server taking more than 5 minutes to restart

* Character wipes

* Server not showing up in the in-game browser
