    By the way guys, am I right in thinking that desync issues are part of the 1.7.2 update?

    It's the first version I've ever played, but while my friends don't experience it much, I get it a lot. When I'm trying to play with them, I'll get the yellow or red chain icon on screen and they will run on the spot, or run forwards forever, and they will see me doing the same.
    I get this problem on multiple servers.

    Was it the same in previous versions or is it new in 1.7.2?
    It is a problem my end?

    finding animals is very very easy, just stick to a road and look for the big white spots on the sides with your GPS, scan them and half the time you'll find an animal

    or you can go commando and hunt rabbits in the forest with a crossbow

    Personally I think the forest needs more life in it, how about some deer here and there and the occasional angry bear that'll take a beating but yield two backpacks' worth of meat or some EXTREME BEAR MEAT that regains 1600 blood a piece or something
    Oh god, no bears please. I mean, can you even imagine? You're strolling around with your mak or crowbar or whatever and A FUCKING BEAR comes out of the trees. You'd be so fucked. DayZ is all about realism, remember?

    Imagine if Rocket coded in fucking wolves and shit. Pack predators. Hiked into the woods to get away from the zombies? You just found something a lot worse. Or rather, it found you.

    Rocket would end up (accidentally) making the bear's run speed the same as zombies

    Just downgrade the beta patch, Chernarus mentioned the latest was incremented to 1.61 which breaks compatibility with 1.60 servers.

    Was at 3800 blood with no food, went and hunted some animals, put up a fire, cooked food, got back to 12000.

    Feels good man. Playing with all them bloodloss status effects is annoying.

    I hope the zombie attack animations will change. Because right now, if someone attacked me like that in real life I'd go like "Ow, the fuck you doing, ouch, stop"

    Everytime my favorite server crashes, I end up with another m249 with 4 belts.

    So far I have 4 m249 with over 3200 bullets.

    Zombies keep wrecking my shit. I'm trying to loot towns but most of the houses can't be opened. When I DO get into a house, zombies follow me in and I end up cornered. I have to run through a wall of zombies to escape and they hit me and cause me to bleed. I climbed up a lighthouse and jumped off the rails cause I lost so much blood and wasted my bandage.

    Tips for fucking zombies up or just getting past them? They chase me for miles.

    Don't even bother entering houses with just one exit. Run in bigger ones like a pub, pick up what you need and keep going. Make use of how Zombies can't run in buildings, and they lack any navigational skills.

    I don't understand how Zeds cannot enter buildings. I've had a few cases where I've ran into a house and theyve followed me in. Does it depend on the type of building?

    Patience, young one

    You must achieve inner harmony and blah blah blah to get DayZ to finish loading

    In all seriousness though if it takes more than 5mins at that little loading thing just find another server

    Also, unrelated, is it just me or did 90% of the Seattle servers disappear?

    Was the Ghillie suit issue fixed in 1.7.2.1?
    HOTFIX : 10 JULY 2012

    Affected addons:
    * dayz_code 1.7.2.1
    * dayz_anim 0.3.1
    * dayz_server (only for servers)

    Developer's Note:

    Changelog:
    * [FIXED] Infected attack those they cannot see ( https://dev-heaven.net/issues/36375 )
    * [FIXED] Wearing clothes makes you invisible ( https://dev-heaven.net/issues/36371 )
    * [FIXED] New authentication method causing lockups on full servers (Reverted use of publicVariableServer)
    * [FIXED] Pressing ALT key caused spamming of server sync ( No longer spams for sync'ing a character )
    It appears that only the invisibility issue with different outfits is fixed, not the inventory wipe.

    I don't really agree with that quick start. If your alone you don't need more than 1 blood bag. Also my concern when starting a new is 2x Canned Food, 2x Water or Soda, 1 morphine, 1 epi pen, and 1 extra bandage. I use that load out because it saves space for more supplies.

    I used to grab 3 or 4 morphine injectors partly because of legs being made of twigs in every update up to 1.7.2, now I know I can just go for 1 or 2. But the guy who made that video said that Firestations weren't worth it, they are most of the time, you can find medium-tier weaponry most of the time, such as Remington's, AK's and M1014.

    I just grab as many morphine as possible, as well as bloodbags. If it happens that I need more space for supplies, I just drop that shit on the ground. I usually always find an ALICE pack as well before I go to the Hospital/Tents.

    I also highly prioritize finding an Axe so I can stealthkill zombies when looting, a knife for hunting and matches for grilling meat. Then I won't need any food supplies. I also prioritize (of course) two or three canteens in case I'm lost and I can't find water

    I wouldn't recommend putting any outfit on right now, 1.7.2 has broken that, anyone who already had an outfit BEFORE the update is invisible and anyone who puts one on AFTER the update loses all of their inventory and also becomes invisible. 1.7.2.1 is experimental and might be even buggier with the fixes they're trying.
