    Yay!
    I won't be able to log for a few hours either, that's great! <3
    I logged off being raped by zombies in the industrial area of Cherno, I guess, it was pretty dark. I'm guessing it's north-ish.
    Also, I will probably look like a bandit. Although, my humanity is well above the default levels...

    Stashes like in STALKER would be interesting. Maybe make 2 seperate items, the packs and then some kind of lock that you can put in the pack so only you can open it? Or maybe it gives you a key so if they kill the player they can open the stash with it? Can ARMA even do that?

    I like watching people complain about dying. It's how this would really play out. Everyone likes to think that a zombie apocalypse would be really cool and everyone would be a Survivor man but in reality if you survive the initial chaos you're still likely to get shot in the back of the head for some pork and beans or break your leg by falling off a ladder and than set upon by zombies. The mortality rate during such things is less than desirable.

    Me and six of my buddies from college camped the factory out of Elecktro on KC2, we threw flares out into the distance and funnily enough, only bandits ever came into the glow, we dispatched them quick smart and looted their corpses keeping us going for a good 4 hours before they logged off and hit the sack.

    I've never found a game thats made treking around the wilderness so much fun.

    This game could use some kind of throwable meat item to distract the zombies in case you run out of ammo and you have like 10 of them on you.

    I thought empty cans and bottles were used in this fashion already.

    I wish there was some form of "new life rule" so when you die you'd revert to survivor. I passed out on a ladder and got stuck in an infinite timer glitch about a week ago(I was a bandit). I log in today and I'm back where I was but completely healthy with full blood, about 800 humanity, but I'm still a bandit as I should be. Blah blah blah I get killed and respawn. Still a bandit I take 5 steps and I'm sniped. Respawn again and I run into a survivor immediately. We just stop and stare at each other, then he starts shooting me. We exchange shots and I go down. Since he shot first he was the one that alerted a sizeable horde to come running over. As he's bandaging up they gank him, and a few break off to beat me. He goes down hella fast and I shoot him in the head. My ~800 humanity drops to -1.4k instantly. Guess I gotta be a bandit forever

    If you're having trouble with ladders, IMMEDIATELY go prone as soon as you stop climbing off the top.

    99% of the time this'll stop you from falling back down.

    Oh damn, the people who had that tent were coming back, but they crashed their car in the woods and died. Then the server crashed. At least we got the loot still.

    In addition to that, groups have a much higher survival rate than loners. They can more effectively loot and are less likely to be randomly attacked.

    Crouching works too.

    Just don't climb them with a pistol out and you'll be fine.

    Just had an amazing time with this. I met up with some random guy in Elektro and survive with him for a bit, turned out that he was super bloodthirsty and we went on this rampage of sniping and me covering him with a AKM which we got from the first two victims of his rifle, was cool to see a good sniper in action and not be on the shooty end of the sniper rifle for once.

    You're only really safe when you get to around a group of 5. I've taken on a couple of groups and they're not hard, just need to make sure you're in a good location and use the environment to your advantage.

    Random internet assholes are a key component to making this mod a success. If everyone was super-helpful and friendly it would be boring as fuck.

    Not every ladder will make you fall, but a lot of them will like the wooden watch towers at military bases.

    Just like in FO online the russian speakers are going to kill you straight up, I have noticed. Not that english speakers are that much less likely, but still.

    In DayZ it seems almost the opposite.

    I've had much better experiences with Europeans, and Russians when I'm on their servers than US servers. US servers also seem to have a higher rate of random killer douchebaggery.

    I don't mind pvp, but when a guy with a SAW trolls Elektro it's lame.

    The popularity of this mod is kind of annoying. Once we get new servers for people to join they get filled up its a few seconds. Half the people who play the mod barely even know how to play the vanilla game itself.

    Talk about a shitty feature. I'm not sure what they were supposedly going for when they added a feature that causes you to forget how to climb up off of a ladder, while also preventing you from grabbing hold midfall.

    I honestly can't say that I do much better on the different regions. I generally just head to EU simply because it's not as full as the U.S. Everyone that I've grouped together with in the past was in the U.S, I generally don't get into shitty situations because I head through the forests in a straight line (Which is faster than heading by road anyways).

    Same reason some tents contain gun-racks you cannot take from. To give you false hope.

    This post pretty much just caused me to buy ARMA 2 for this mod. Fainting from blood loss and having no clue where you are sounds so fun in a zombie outbreak situation.

    I once got lost in the dark, but managed to find out where I was by trying to read Russian road signs while throwin road flares in the dark to actually be able to see stuff. It wasn't that hard since the first part of Elektrovalensk or something looks similair in Russian.

    Edited:

    It was fun though none the less, on the way I also teamed up with some guys and we all got to Elektro without too much trouble.
