Last week, Kojima Productions announced a patch for Death Stranding, scheduled for mid-December. One of the most requested features of the forthcoming patch? The ability to delete vehicles left by other players.
I don't think it's "griefing" i park vehicles like that all the time cause if it's close enough to the terminal you dont have to unload it to deposit the cargo.
Cant you just get out and move it? Annoying for sure, but I've yet to come across this outside a bike left on the road for others.
Well i do, hell i keep with a vehicle till it dies. But maybe it's still there cause after making the delivery they just save and quit their play session, i quit right after a delivery, never crossed my mind to move then vehicle before i did so(though im not sure if i ever quit with the vehicle parked in front). Never thought it would literally block other people's deliveries

Yeah sure its not. Like a thief would say I stole something. Its pathetic, the PS community can't even get along with its fanbase. They make life miserable for each other.
lol what a dumb comment
@BlackTar187 FANBOY triggered warning. Probably the kind of a-hole that does this kind of griefing.
You're giving us 36 year olds a bad name
Sure, only ps community trolling/ griefing their own, but pc and xbox players are saints and would never do things like that lmao /s
You realize griefing exists in literally every gaming community, right?
There's only one person here who is triggered and it's not me. Calling names hahaha why did you capitalize Fanboy? You yelling at your computer?
Calm done with the over dramatics, dude.
You're making a mountain out of a molehill and introducing a ridiculous and frankly just obnoxious narrative. PlayStation players can't get along with each other and make life miserable for each other? Yeah, that truck blocking the entrance was replete with ill will and malintent. Also, how will the blocked 'victim' ever recover? His life was obviously ruined. Are you this melodramatic about everything?
Ok what? You sound a bit unhinged.
lol show us on the doll where Sony touched you. Grow up, kid.
I personally only had the problem with blocked terminals but like rain suggested, I'd just move them. I've never seen anything I would even consider griefing. There's no proper or right way to play this game. I think this is ridiculous.
I'm just curious if this is such a persistent problem that it's become the most requested feature. I've yet to come across it, and can't really see what the difference is between just moving it, or having to get out and remove it. Probably takes about the same amount of time really. If that's the biggest problem with the game, then maybe it's not quite as bad as some people wanted others to believe.
I think the only problem, really, is when you're on the clock on a premium delivery and every second counts. When you have a big delivery, you want to park the vehicle as close as possible so you can interact with the terminal to make the delivery. If you're not parked close enough, you can't make the delivery without going to the truck and taking things out manually which you probably loaded onto a truck in the first place because they were altogether too heavy. Then you'd have to make a partial - it just doesn't work. Otherwise, why complain? The entire game is slow anyway - what's the big deal over an extra small step?
I don't think it's griefing either. How can you be an affective Amazon Prime delivery guy without a vehicle?
I've never seen a truck blocking a road like that. I accidentally drove a truck into the cosplsyer area last night as I approached it from the river and didn't even realise it was the Cosplayer's place until it was too late, but still managed to jump my truck all the way through to the other side. Still, it's good to have the option to delete them.
That happened to me too, the Cosplayer terminal was completely blocked by another player's truck. I tried for God knows how long to get it out but the darn terminal is situated at the worst possible place in the whole game. The option to delete players vehicles cant come soon enough. That said, we need a voting system before anyone decides to remove helpful stuff other players leave behind, like anchors and ladders. As for roads and bridges, I do my best carrying material to the terminals but man we need more help finishing them...
No need for a voting system, it only removes it from your game. Not the creators or anyone else's game. As for roads, unlock the zone first and you'll get help. Usually gets you half the mats or such, sometimes it can finish one off for you over time if people are still building roads.
@rdgneoz3 Yep you are right 😉
Lol. I kept getting stuck on rocks with the mule truck and being super annoyed that I lost my truck. Then found out I could jump it off with some persistence.
Lol Jumping trucks is the only way to traverse tough terrain in Death Stranding...
The mule truck wasn't so bad on rough terrain once you knew how to drive it. Not good for keeping cargo in good condition. I spent a lot of time getting resources for the roads to make moving stuff easier. That weather station sucks ass though.
The mule truck is awful. Yeah, you could jump your way out of being stuck *sometimes.* Trucks in the game are true to gravity with the front end being the heaviest due to the engine block etc, and it's very annoying in certain instances. Moments in trucks were among the 'sweariest' I had playing.
It would be great to solve the problem original way instead of simply deleting cars. What about making a side quest from it as a removing cars with some benefits to player(doing it for others)? It will be ecosystem friendly and will strenghten social aspect of the game.
Fantastic idea that, I like how you think.
Yea give um a tow truck and payem 12 bucks an hour
LOL turn a walking sim into a parking tow truck sim
Just played through chapter 4, walking sim....Haha ok buddy. See the problem is when the game went live ppl only looked at chapter 1 or 2, but the game drips in vehicles, gear, and combat as you go. The progression actually works extremely well and keeps the game feeling fresh. It makes the progression feel meaningful. Bikes, trucks, assault rifles, pistols, shotguns, zip tie guns, grenades, ghost guns, speed/power skeletons that make you run like The Flash and jump 20 foot gaps, floating carriers that you can use to surf down hills, stun bombs, remote bombs, smoke grenades, strand ties used for stealth and parrying, exploding briefcases that you can use in melee, boss battles, and more. The game has more than just walking, though, traversing the decimated landscape is a wonderful part of this cerebral epic.
They could get sponsorship from AAA and that would give people something else to complain about. Sounds like a win win for everyone who wants to talk about the game from hater to player. People love to complain about stupid stuff.
I haven't ran into this. Are they sure it's on purpose because I've actually done that but just because I saw something or had to do something so I jumped out. But then I go back a continue driving.
I think you won't see it until it becomes abandoned by the other player. Like they get a different vehicle, or move too far away from it. If it's your vehicle you just jumped out of, you'll be the only one that sees it. Of course, player may have gotten distracted and went off to do other things in the scenario you posit, then grabbed another truck. I've abandoned bikes for trucks after clearing mule camps.
Unload a mag on them and they'll blow up and disappear.
Happened to me, a truck blocking a UCA entrance but only once, I simply jumped in it and moved it.
Deliveries are one reason, but maybe their battery died and they abandoned their truck. Or maybe a BT got em.
Batteries don't run out on streets if you touch the middle zone with 2 wheels. Also BTs don't attack you on finished roads. Could still be the case if the player didn't have the road finished. The game only saves x,y coordinated and the vehicle will always spawn on top of roads, bridges when it's abandoned. I also think that they've already tweaked the vehicle spawns with the last patch as I had every entry blocked most of the time even by multiple trucks sometimes but now it's much less common. Could also be due to the fact that people are finishing the game and stop playing so less vehicles are abandoned. Although I noticed that I still get older structures (by players who haven't played for weeks) spawned into the game from time to time so I don't know if it's different for vehicles. It shouldn't matter much anyway as it's just a minor annoyance that'll be dealt with in the next patch.
You're mostly right, but as far as the roads go, maybe the roads don't exist on their game yet. ;)
One time I had to move a vehicle left in the entrance of a Prepper. Other times, I was saved because of those vehicles left in the middle of nowhere.
Is it an online only game?
No. Plays just fine offline. But the online stuff is actually quite beneficial and makes the game a lot of fun because you come across a lot of stuff that makes your own game more fun. Basically, you find new things from what other players have discovered.
so you can play offline then? So whats the problem then? Just play offline if other peoples litter is disrupting your fun.
Well....like I said, the online stuff does add something to the game. More often than not, it's actually helpful, so if one has online, I'd suggest using it, because the instances cited in this article seem like they're probably few and far between. I've yet to run into a truck blocking the road. More often than not, I'd be happy to find another truck that I could use, even if i have one, because Timefall will ruin your truck over time, so I'd just move it to the side, and it'd likely be there when I get back. But, if one doesn't have online, then they can still play the game.
I've ran into a bike one time on the road that seemed badly placed. Other than that I like vehicles parked as they help me often
Wow, leaving a vehicle is greifing now? Welcome to 2019!
Enjoying every bit of DS & this hasn't been a problem for me. Sometimes in the game when I see an abandoned vehicle when I'm walking I use it.
Wasn't this the whole point? Provide the tools to help or hinder other players, and allow the player to choose?
This is why we can’t have nice things. These idiots are always ruining it for everyone.
I literally ram these badly placed vehicles out of the way with a Lv3 long range truck. Worst place yet, was a lime green truck "austin power", parked in front of the Cosplayers entrance. I asnt annoyed by it, I was genuinly impressed on how bad of a F-up that was, seriously what are the odds of that happening to whoever you are? lol If you fell from the height above that entrance, the truck would have been damaged or even exploded, but it was in pristine condition lol
Or you could play offline, by yourself....and not be interupted by community features.
some people don't want to connect
Gotta grief to make the game fun
Downvoting is probably not the answer because then people will grief by downvoting well placed vehicles. A dismantle option is probably the best answer.
I haven’t ran into this but you could always have a deconstruct vehicle like you can to online structures
You can't dismantle vehicles at the moment. This feature will be added with the mid-december patch. Right now you can only drive the truck out of the way yourself or blow it up to make it disappear.
Eh, next flying helicopter blades into snipers will be considered 'griefing' in Modern Warfare... It just seems like another use of a game mechanic to me
As someone that's about to platinum the game, vehicles are annoying sure....but the biggest asshole move players do is block narrow roads with post boxes. Very annoying when trying to deliver something under a certain time limit.
Bu Bu Bu teh new genre!
Are you ok?
