I got around it by making a Fedora/Wine server with VMware player and discovering just how much has been missing in SP all along. It’s never worked properly.
Update | Yesterday I reinstalled Conan Exiles and I think that the problem is coming from the game itself in the single player mode.
What I have detected after a clean reinstall?
Exile Lands map is ok. No problems there with the wildlife spwan (with or without mods + default settings).
Siptah map is not ok. There is problems with the wildlife spwan (with or without mods + default settings).
Note: Before uninstalling and reinstalling Conan Exiles I removed all residual files and folders. From what I think I can tell that the installation was 100% clean.
Not all the NPC’s are spawning in some camps in SP either. River Watch Keep: Archers, taskmaster, trade NPC’s around campfire all missing.
Hi there - thanks for the help! I’m a PC single-player, and have been unable to get the monsters in the vaults to spawn for several months now. Sometimes the first 1/3 or so of the vault is populated, but often times nothing at all shows up. Wildlife in general (outside the vaults) is also spotty. I don’t vary the settings except for: disable thrall decay, disable building abandonment, item spoil rate at .2, and resource respawn rate at 2.0. I do have an extensive modlist at the moment, but I have removed all of these at various points and seen no change. Also, btw, I know AoC isn’t a Siptah mod, but I’ve only had it on 2 weeks and seen no difference one way or the other. CE (main game) is working great. Thanks for the help!
Modlist (from .txt file):
Let’s hope they fix it in the next update.
I’m also playing singleplayer mode on Siptha and the puppies almost never show up. And the map is really empty, I hardly see any animals.
I also have to chime in on the sad and frustrating spawn issues when trying to play SP in Siptah. I can’t speak for the Exiles as I play on a friends server there, thankfully with no such issues. However as much as I love playing with friends, I also enjoy a save doing my own thing, and the world is just - empty. I’ve been living off of oysters and the occasional croc that may actually spawn in near one of the carcasses (I haven’t seen any others beyond those points). Quite a few missing NPCs as well.
When things were wonky I removed all of my mods. When things were still wonky I did a fresh install … we all know how long that takes, lol. And still, my world feels eerily empty.
The mods I originally had going;
Fashionist, Akuba’s Salon, Stacksize Plus, Less Building Placement Restrictions, LBPR - Additional Features, Shadows of Skelos Vol. 2, YavasAnimalPen, Improved Quality of Life, Pippi, 300 Level and Hosav’s Custom UI Mod.
Spoil rate, Thrall crafting time, Building decay (disabled), Animal pen crafting and Food container range. Also turned off the Purge (for the first try that had mods) and set a time for the Maelstrom.
I really hope this gets addressed soon. As big as the part of the Conan community that plays on servers is, there is still a HUGE portion of players who either only play solo, or like myself, enjoy both… and this is truly game breaking to those of us who enjoy a solo game.
I’m considering renting my own server to play Siptah without those bugs.
i just restarted my siptah SP game and haven’t seen even one feral dog and only like 3 or 4 crocodiles along the entire eastern coast. i ran all the way up to the little island in the NE corner where the lynx are supposed to spawn and the island seems to spawn normally. i also ran to the SE corner where that NPC camp is and there were people there, as well as a few pelicans, but still no dogs, and i know for a fact that there are a few feral dog spawn locations around that area and nothing.
LOL! While I certainly share your sentiment, I feel like for solo players/saves we already paid all we should need to when we purchased the game and the Siptah DLC. This bug makes it nearly unplayable, and leaves big aspects of the games worthless (vaults, many NPCs, etc). Not cool.
I actually had a similar issue occur when playing in the Exiles Land running Co-Op solo (for a mod to work right) and the nearest Dafari camps were just empty, with only ostriches spawning there. I traveled a long ways away and they suddenly started to fill back up.
I wonder if this is related to the issue where Vaults had their last 1/3rd not spawn in until you ghosted and then reverted to normal?
