Tent spawn issue on Timbergold trails

Postby Beano8U » November 9th, 2017, 5:59 am

I have an issue with starting a game at my tent on Timbergold trails (refer screenshot)
Image

If I start a game and choose to spawn at the tent circled on the left, I end up spawning near the lodge marked on the far right. You can see I fast traveled to the lodge on the left as I plan to move the tent.
I saw a similar post about tent/spawn issues, but the image of the tent location is no longer available and I can only assume the the tent was out of bounds in that case.
Mine is clearly within the border.
I first noticed the issue during the Halloween missions and thought it was a temporary bug as the map had a major change to it, but doing the Panther comp tonight I found it's not the case.
If I remember correctly, (from the Halloween missions) I can start at a lodge and fast travel to the tent without an issue (at the cost of camping supplies of course)
It is not an error on my behalf that I accidentally had the lodge on the right selected, or a default lodge spawn as I spawn outside the lodge boundary. (Can't change my inventory loadout from my spawn location)
I have a great internet connection and my pc is more than capable. I can replicate the same issue every time.
When I first placed my tent in that location, I was able to spawn there. (Fairly sure, it was when Timbergold trails was first released and I don't often hunt in that area since a few weeks after I tried hunting Bighorn Sheep)

Thanks for taking the time to read this. Not sure if I will move the tent tonight as I am in a competition and not keen to spook any animals in the area.

I moved the problem tent a few metres from the location it used to be in. Not having an issue now :)
It was located above the first tunnel originally, it is now off to one side slightly. Perhaps it was a glitch due to the fast travel feature of the tunnel? Or maybe just picking it up and re-placing solved it?
Either way, it now works correctly, and I still have my spawn point.

Could be either way(solving by moving or to close to the tunnel), I tested this but waited to answer since I didn't run into any issues. I wanted to see if more people would have the same issue as you had. Happy it works again! If you encounter it again, please write here again :).

I had the same problem few months ago, i had to put my tents far away from the border.
It's not necessarily the tent where you spawn, the northern tent in your picture is closest to the border, it's perhaps this one.
