    I was just walking outside of Cherno and I saw a bus driving by, so I tried flagging it down with my flashlight. He stopped, and I was like, "oh, should I walk to it?" Lo and behold the driver steps out, snipes me, and gets right back in.

    Who does that?

    I do.

    Edit for clarification; I wasn't the one who did it this time.

    oh god best experience i had in dayz in a while ( on the private server). since i crashed a huey i found on top of cherno firestation because of a lack of fuel, i headed to the NW airfield to find another one. i did, at the north end of the runway. it was damaged and nearly empty with fuel so i filed it up with a fuel tank and 3 jerry cans nearby which took about a half hour to do.

    i then took off, and since it had pretty much zero repairs done it was spinning like hell. however if you disable auto hover and just wait in the air a minute or two you can eventually get control of it. so i headed south to the coast and passed cherno and electro, getting shot at along the way. i landed near balota so i could pick up 11er and dogmachines but i hit the ground a little to hard and the engine broke. i met up with dogmachines and we searched bolata, komarovo and cherno for hours looking for parts. we fixed the fuel tank, and engine but we never found a rotor assembly which i think would of fixed the spinning.

    so dogmachines and i took off spinning like hell while getting shot at by a lee enfield. i was able to get control though and the hull didnt take much damage. it was as dark as hell and the light on the huey was massive, which was really cool. we then proceeded to strafe cherno with dogmachines as the gunner, seeing lots of flashlights, flares and headlights along the way. we ran out of ammo and then headed to the NW airfield to look for a rotor assembly to fix this spinning. at around stary sobor, james says in admin chat that the server is restarting in five minutes. we freaked the fuck out, and tried to land asap. it was next to impossible with all the spinning and we had trouble finding an open area to land too. i tried, but it was just too much and we proceeded to crash into a tree. if it weren't for that damn server restart we would of been fine. well it was fun while it lasted.

    Some people are just dicks. This isn't the 1998 era of internet gaming where those you met up with had some manners and respect, and honor to not be cheap dirty assholes or even cheat. This is 2012. Where the majority of people you play with are 3 hours late in taking their ritilin

    Personally I won't shoot someone unarmed, but unarmed means hands down to their sides. A Flashlight out means they could still have a pistol.

    I'm having it too. Either there's something wrong with the parent server or because I clicked the big update button in the launcher it updated my ARMA to a version most servers don't have.

    What do you guys do with the view distance setting?

    I had mine set to 10,000 because I wanted to be able to see things and people far in the distance, but turning it down to 3,000 improved my fps from 25 to 150 (at menu screen)

    Am I at a disadvantage having it at only 3k rather than 10k or will it make no difference? I read in some places that servers have it at a fixed value?

    To be fair few people have their view distance up that high anyway, chances are you wouldn't even see them with max view distance in the first place.

    Higher FPS is much better, most encounters will be within shouting distance if not closer.

    No one can effectively engage you at over 1,000m unless they have the larger caliber sniper rifles, even the M24 is pushing it at that range. And if you're moving? Fuckin' forget about it. 3k Is plenty far enough, that's 3 kilometers. Unless you hang around the same spot for 10 minutes, which you should never do unless there's two ways out and you're looking at both of them, you're fine. And even with a sniper rifle, you probably can't see a man at 3km out.

    It's people you don't see that you end up walking up on and getting within shouting range that you should worry about

    And, as for deciding when to engage, Before you shoot someone, ask yourself this question: Is there anything in it for me? Attention is the worst thing to have in this game, and there's no point in losing a few rounds of ammo, and gaining unwanted attention, without anything else to show for it

    Most time when I'm in the weather is hazy or foggy as fuck anyways, so that doesn't really matter.


    Man I love how weather influences the game. Now I wish it was exactly as the weather in the real world, like, pick a weather station in London and synch the game weather to it, that'd be awesome.

    Just successfully traded with a nice young man, traded my DMR for his M24.

    We parted ways in the middle of the field were we traded, headed North and he went South. Then five minutes later we were sniping at each other across the field

    EDIT:

    Now I can't get into any servers because BattleEye wont initialize. Great.

    So join some random server, and go and look at my map. On it, someone marked a location 'bus'.

    Not really caring if I died at this point, I head off in that direction.

    Literally, as I reach the point, I see the bus rolling away down the hill. I chase after it, and as the driver gets on the road I unload about a hundred bullets in its general direction.

    I don't know if I hit anything important, but I lost track of it as it moved to the coast.

    That was a satisfying encounter with my first vehicle

    Go north or stay south?
    I'm near mogilevka atm and it's pretty uneventful, which is good because loot is easy, but its bad because it's pretty boring.

    I kind of miss the danger of cherno. What's the point in just living with ease?

    Will I find more fun up north, or shall I go back south?
