Also, doesn't it kind of split the community by having 2 threads?
I don't know if it was just me, but I got a HUGE fps improvement this patch. Did anyone else?
There's been a patch?
Oh no, talking about the 1.5.6 patch, just took me a while to actually try it out
Can we play the mod in singleplayer ?
Just uploaded a video of me and my friends playing DayZ, not really exciting or anything, just a typical playthrough with some commentary, hope its at least a little bit enjoyable.
Hm, I just noticed this thread.
well ok I'm at Camp Facepunch and will probably hop back on once the sun comes up in game.
Obviously there's a heavy focus on survival since you'll loose your gear (which you did in UO aswell) when you die. Makes you think twice if you have good gear.
What is it exactly that causes you to lose your backpack and all your gear? I fought off a ton of zombies with some other guy, we got split up and I got attacked a bit, and after running to a lighthouse for safty I noticed I didn't have any gear except my pistol and 2 bandages?
And how do you refill your water bottle?
Head down to deep enough water and you'll get a "refill water" option. And if you swam during the running, that may be the cause.
The intensity comes from the thought of loosing everything.
Do you think they'll release it as a scenario for coop? I'd really like to just play around with it with a couple of mates.
So i installed it yesterday and i had a little first playthrough:
I started in some village near the coast and heard a lot of zombies (it was night).
Before i knew it i was spotted by someone named happycow. I thought he was going to kill me but instead we cleared the village together.
Then i followed the traintracks untill they stopped and i kept walking in the same direction into the mountains. After that i stopped because i think i completely left the area.
Nice game, though. I really need to find a map this time.
Being a bandit (or trying to be) is interesting, the whole server gets paranoid over bandits which I find a nice mix into this. I actually got ambushed by a bandit after killing a guy for running around a town with a flare and attracting EVERY fucking zombie in a mile radius.
I'm going to buy OA just for this, is DayZ populated?
very. 20 000 unique players and over 200 000 characters
Just a quick confirmation. Global chat acts as a local chat right? I''m pretty confused about that.
global is global. just like command (only to group leaders but every survivor is in their own group) and side/group channel. direct and vehicle is local
if that's what you meant
also using vehicle channel to set markers when nobody else is in a vehicle with you/you aren't in a vehicle is a good way to set private markers
Find helicopter, fill it up, get shot and the guy just crashes it because he knows fuck all how to fly it.
Leave it for 30 seconds, a full group of guys appear pile in and crash the thing into the sea.
Also, RFP on the EU pull a logoffski every time they take fire - ones to watch out for.
ARse! Found a flashlight, dropped my pistol. PISTOL GONE. Whyyy.
Because you didn't drop it you only replaced it. DayZ doesn't drop shit when you pick up new shit for some reason so items will magically vanish.
omg how do i install this?!
i don't have the steam version
Just go to whereever your game is installed and do it like you're otherwise instructed to.
Hope its clear now.
Doesn't work for me, something about "CABuildingParts" missing
Ugh. Was scouting out a town from the distance while prone, then a zombie fucking teleported to me or something (it made no noise) and instantly knocked me out and killed me, despite me having 70% blood.
