I thought further optimising was the reason the standalone was held back for so long? I'm also fairly sure he's stated before that was the case. So in the year or whatever it's been since he began this project all he has managed to do is remove vehicles, weapons and gear. Remove zombies and loot respawns. Then add a marsh near Cherno. Seems legit. I don't understand why things that were working fine in a mod are not in the standalone. He's literally moved backwards in a year.
