Camp issue...

Recommended Posts

Bereii

I feel like the camp bug (can't place camp anywhere) gets more and more frequent. 

How do you guys handle this and is R* aware of this bullsh*t?

I've taken to throwing a cushion across the room to vent my frustration. I'm not aware of a more constructive way of dealing with it. Rockstar probably know but don't really care.

Someone posted earlier and suggested they had more luck getting a camp to pitch by first dismissing their horse and doing it on foot. I haven't had chance to test it.

Just this morning I tried leaving the game and restarting it 6 times because each time I entered a lobby there was no camp and I couldn't get it to spawn.....anywhere. My horse was not even called yet and I moved around some to make sure I was fully in the game.

Camp mechanics?

 

so many unknow issues ( in the logistics) of the game parameters

 

sometimes camps are there at 1st login in of the physical day-sometimes not...why?

trying to setup a camp- go through selections - see- flickering on pitching camp( then fails and you see- Cripps has packed your camp.use player menu

okay this happens over and over..failing

finally you mange to setup camp-- do some hunting along the way to your camp..and as you approach it despawns

 

okay then after countless times of failing you get a camp..yeah- then that free roam pops up you like= off you go

then returning to Free roam for event CAMP is gone

 

why does Cripps pack camp? is it time based

why are camps sometime auto generated and sometime not?

 

we need info on this aspect from RS

 

 

Amy, I feel your pain!!!

The way it worked for me last few times (don't know if it has any success for you guys tho)

- Start stranger mission, check if you ended up in solo lobby after it launched.

- Fail the mission on purpose.

- Dismiss your horse or hunting wagon and choose respawn trough online options.

- Reform your persistent posse & try pitching it somewhere but not in your immediate proximity.

Forming/disbanding my posse a few times usually makes the camp show up.

I relog several times, until the map shows up on the minimap. Sometimes it appears with 1 relog, sometimes 10. it's criminally bad how Rockstar organises the camp spawns. 

Next legendary bounty should be the dev who takes care of the camp (or the whole team working on it). Hunt, bring back dead and mangled.

 

Edit:

 

Just logged in the game, no camp of course. Tried to pitch it immediately this time instead of relogging. Went to the Camp thing in the player menu, saw the text "your camp is being pitched" on already, without even chosing a location and size. 

So, apparently it tries to pitch it, but it happens you are too close to the former location where you logged of?

Cash money on the problem being linked to Rockstar moving you about lobbies along with an unwritten law for how many camps is kosher for each session. 

Creating camps is effortless for me in an empty lobby and then the second it throws me into a populated one it dicks about for ages building a camp.

 

This "seamless lobby" thing is dumb and it stinks.

I usually take these 7 steps.

  1. Form A Posse.  If you're already leading a Posse, disband it and reform it.
  2. if that doesn't work, spamming the camp usually works after several tries.
  3. if that doesn't work, join an open posse then leave.
  4. if that doesn't work, joining another lobby sometimes helps (form a posse before switching).
  5. if that doesn't work, joining another lobby via the "Posse Up" option can work - leave after joining just like Step 3.
  6. if that doesn't work, restarting the game can help.
  7. if that doesn't work, Whiskey DEFINITELY helps as you repeat steps 1 thru 6.  Maybe lasso a guy and toss a fire bottle on them - though I highly recommend only doing that in-game.

All these "fixes" shouldn't even be necessary. It shows there is a major problem and it needs to be fixed. But since R* considers it a minor issue, don't expect a fix.

Select 'pitch camp' and a map pops up showing all the available locations... select one... away you go. We can dream.

The update is still fresh for me, and there are still a few things that I want to buy, so at the moment, I am playing through the aggravation of the broken camp - and therefor broken trader role, which is the role I like the most.  

 

If I can’t pitch a camp (usually can’t), I will do some collecting or go after a bounty.  Sooner or later, I’ll be able to pitch a camp and I can recommence trading.

 

But a few weeks from now, after I have bought a new horse, upgraded my tent, maxed out a couple of the good ability cards? No thanks.  I’ll be playing something else.  Normally I don’t mind settling into a Grundy routine in between updates, but if an essential mechanic is broken, that’s impossible.

I pick as many herbs as I can while I wait for the issue to resolve itself.

After all, I might as well bend over.

Like many I suspect it has something to do with the number of camps strewn about the map. The game can only handle so many and Rockstar set a limit of camps that are allowed to exist. Anyone that tries to add a camp that goes beyond this established number glitch out and refuse to spawn when requested. If this is the case, it is profoundly stupid considering one of the three roles they introduced hinges on having access to your camp. We had a bug similar to this in the Beta where our camp refused to spawn, it could be Rockstar pulled a Bethesda and reintroduced a bug they fixed previously.

You're litterally just making stuff up now, of course they know about it, it's a rather large issue gameplay wise, and will likely require a patch. It's frustrating for sure but I ain't trying to pretend that I know what R* does or does not consider a minor issue. Just because they don't communicate about every bug in the game doesn't mean they aren't working on a fix for it, cmon now.

It's an interesting theory but I promise you they did not set a limit on camps.

The best solution to the "pitching camp problem" is "not to hide your PSN/Xbox identity on your console"...

works flawlessly everytime i sign in,.. 
(The disadvantage is that everybody knows your approximate location in the game...)

 

But R* wants every player to know each others location in the game world...

Camp mechanics make zero sense. Even if it worked - which it doesn't at all - it doesn't make any sense. How it should work:

 

- Like RDR, you just pick a spot. If it's too hilly or in the middle of a river and you can't pitch it there, find another spot and pitch it

- Camp stays in that spot regardless of day/night/session/logout/login/reboot/etc - it just stays there unless you unpitch it

- R* automatically debits their daily camp fee (like stables)

- *You* decide when and if to move the camp 

- Maybe R* offers you a "free" camp where they pitch it somewhere random and so long as it stays there you don't pay fees

 

Bugs aside, all this packing up, moving, and repitching is annoying and constantly breaks the immersion of the game. WTF R*.

Next time your camp moves, check your lobby.  Odds are all the players are different.  The camp didn’t move - you did.

It mainly happens after you've done a mission and get zapped back in a lobby. Your camp will attempt to pitch (you can see it happening when you open the camp menu). 
 

Even if you are where your camp was before the mission and the spot is empty, your camp won't pitch. It probably indeed still resides in the former lobby. 
 

Either way, camps are broken as hell.

All this time we have been blaming Cripps, whereas In reality, it’s us deserting him.

Funny you should say that. I know someone who rides around with a carcass almost constantly. He's convinced it makes all kinds of things spawn in.

I posted this in another topic but it seems to have been overlooked or not enough people are seeing it as I still see the issue mentioned so I thought I deserved its own topic due to the gravity of the issue it may address.

 

Flee/Dismiss your Horse, Wagons, Carts etc and the try to pitch your Camp.  Basically have no Horses or vehicles spawned when you try and set up Camp.

Each time I have tried this it has worked and @1898 just said it worked for them although I dont know how many times they have tried it.

 

Please try it and get back to me. If its a fluke then I will close this topic, no harm done.

Nope.

Just seems to be random as to when it works and when it doesn't.

 

However the one thing that I found that does place your camp is the same thing that fixed the Posse versus mode...

 

Join a story Mission and then back out.

 

 

 

For me, the problem isn't just getting the camp to spawn, because it will unspawn if you Venture to far from it.

 

I've had this happened one time while I was standing in the middle of camp trying to give Crips some animals.

 

This happens aong with...

 

...resupply missions canceling themselves right after you start them.

 

...the delivery wagon for the camp Goods spawning under the map. Effectively making it undeliverable and there's no way you can simply disconnect to correct it because if you do you lose everything. (Although you're going to lose everything anyway so...)

 

...it often will not register the sale at the delivery point, making you run the sale twice. Often it still will not register the sale at the end of the second run.

...and you lose everything.

 

...last but not least, the constant disconnects while you're on your way to make the delivery for the camp Goods.

...and you lose everything once again.

 

And the funniest thing about all of this is when the camp won't spawn but it'll tell you Crips's production has halted.

I'm like LOL how the hell would the game know that if the camp won't spawn?

 

Something must be done at this point because this is seriously broken.

 

Randomly spawning campsites is and always was a bad idea.

It should have been something more along the lines of what GTA had set up.

 

If they wanted people to have the ability to cook and craft while out and about they should have just given them a campfire and nothing more.

 

 

There are also other issues that seemed to happen when the camp doesn't spawn like several of our perks not working...

 

Moving fast while Eagle Eye is active is normally one that stops functioning properly when the camp doesn't spawn, but there are a few others.

 

I truly hope someone makes an executive decision soon because I don't think Patchwork is going to fix this.

 

It's completely unreasonable and unrealistic that people should have to spend 30 minutes of their time after logging into a game simply to get the features that are supposed to work normally in the game to function at all.

 

SMH in embarrassment for this game and the once grate name that was Rockstar.

Although it's no small surprise that this is happening because this seems to be what takes place when a great company is bought out by a greedy one.
