Santa box in dark valley

This might have been discussed before but I could not find a thread related to this feauture:

The big factory in dark valley has a storage container ( blue chest in office) in the office where the bandits boss rests in pieces.

the first time I opened this box it contained some warsawpact ammo , scope and other items.
Being somehow overburdend I left some items in the box and upon returning to the bandits ( after doing some wetwork in the valley for a couple of missions) i definitly had more items in the box than I started with.

When I discovered this I started some experiments with Ap-ammo and a vog-25 grenade and these multiplied somehow.
Now I am playing in free-mode (ZRP mod) and found that every time you enter the dark valley the content of this box has been added to.

Now I wonder, are there more of these boxes scatterd around the zone?
( Experiments with nato-ammo and M209 grenades are carried out )

Been a while since I went through SoC, but I think there are others. The building above X18 has a blue stash box in the large room which also is resupplied, though I can't recall if that was vanilla or a mod.

Borov's box does respawn stuff. I'm not sure, but the box near the campfire next to where Cap stands in AW might refill, too. And I have seen the box in the farmstead where you encounter Ara and his snitch respawn ammo, but that also could have been a mod.

It might depend on what patch version you're running. The earlier patches had an exploit where you could multiply itmes placed in certain stash locations, or perma-corpses.

Not sure if this is related, or if it's a location that was simply missed with the newer patches. Either way, nice to know of yet another item-respawn box!

I am using patch 1.0006 US ( Even while i live in europe, must been a cheap load of DVD's for the local store) with a ZRP 1.05 as the only mod.
Only mods are repair guy at warehouses / get rid of some dialogs and enabled free play.

And I am not sure if it respawns or clones I do not remember having a VOG-25 'nade inside first time.

Will try some more stuff this evening. ( Dedicated Sniper ammo for instance)

I think this thing is happening because bandits are respawning. They might place the stuff in stashes I guess... Not sure, so don't judge if wrong, but there is a line even in tutorial about adding a logic to a squad... You can change the "stash" thing in it... Not sure though, haven't tested any of that...

It seems that you're right about that, every time a new NPC arrives to the camp where the box is located, some new stuff appears in it. There are two boxes like that in Dark Valley, second one is in the building above the X-18 lab. (And of course, after you finish X-18 mission no new stuff appears in that box, because NPC-s will leave this camp.)
Actually I think that with few exceptions ( Both boxes in Bar area, box in Wild Territory where Merc Snipers are, box in Army Warehouses where you kill Pavlik, and couple of others. ) it happens with all of these blue boxes that are located in Stalker camps all around the Zone.

Its intended iirc. Happened in clear sky. There were some squads at the machine yard, and the blue box next to the guide refilled every few days.

Yeah in CS it is happening always, not in SOC though... In SOC it happens mostly in generic places, but in some camps it doesn't... plus many camps don't even have stashes...
