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 was looting a corpse and someone killed me. :(
I just got killed by a guy camping out in the aircraft control tower with a Vintorez.
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.
Found a tent and took an AKS-74 with kobra sight out of it.
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 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.
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.
Do a lot of people use VOIP?
Am I the only one that climbs ladders with my pistol out and never falls? I keep the W key depressed the entire time and have never fallen.
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.
There are around 2700 people playing DayZ.
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.
I'm stuck in a gas station currently, 955 blood, barely any ammo and I keep fainting from blood loss. I have no idea where I am because I cant read the roadsigns.
So the servers are fucked or something. They were working great last night but now I can't join anything. Stuck at server response.
Broken mechanic? No, it's a feature!
Although I want to dig up pumpkins. Why else are they there?
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.
After some detective work, I found out that I am right here.
Please help me :(
I dont even know the server name oh god
