    Why Banditry Is A Moral Obligation In DayZ

    The overly altruistic highwayman with OCD... Find a nice spot with lots of foot traffic, preferably lone players or small groups, far from prying eyes and sniper vantages, and good enough cover to be relatively secure for ten minutes at a time; must have a suitable area for storage of a couple barrels or a tent. Fill the tent and barrels with useful survival gear, plenty of food, batteries and extra flashlights, and even a few highly sought-after weapon accessories. Wait around looking for survivors traveling or looting, or ideally stopped at a well; and then approach them and let them know that this is a hold-up, but that you have no intention of harming them if they cooperate. Usher them into your bandit hideout. Make sure to swear at them profusely, while also saying please and thank you; and don't forget constantly apologize for the harsh treatment, and alternately insult their mothers. Tell them to strip off all their gear and face the corner. Give them cooked steaks and zucchinis to eat while they wait. Insist that they eat one steak, followed by two zucchini, two more steak, and one last zucchini. If they forget and ask, act gracious and forgiving. If they eat out of order, have a total fucking conniption fit. Don't forget to apologize. Go through their belongings while constantly commenting on how rubbish all their gear is. No matter where you are, always ask how they made it out of Solnichny with such poor taste in equipment. Don't forget to insult their mother. Make sure to apologize after a brief awkward silence. Now would be a good time to let them know how disappointed you are with their organizational skills. Berate them for keeping food and water in the same pack, because solids and liquids need to be separated. If you find peaches, you may have a minor meltdown because this item fits both categories. Tell the victim that their gear is garbage, and not worth your stealing any of it. Really try hard to let them know how disappointed you are... Make them build a fire and ruin most of their gear that you know you can replace. If you like, you can also employ the person to help tend a farm plot or cook some meat. Send them packing with a full belly, and better gear than you found them with. Insist that they open and close the door 5 times before leaving. And don't forget to insult their mother again before apologizing and bidding them farewell. And let them know if you find them with such a disorganized mess of garbage loot again, there will be trouble

    Dead by Dawn | Hardcore 1pp

    Logged in for a short run about an hour ago, tried to raid Elektro but buggered up and was swarmed. Next try I spawned west of Cherno (I think) and the area with houses there was completely overrun with zeds. Ended up hunkered down in a house with 20-30 screaming infected outside. Looting infested towns is NOT easy, goddam. Loving it! Will make an effort now to get some basic gear and find wheels, then set up camp somewhere to try the military compounds.

    Dumpers with lots of cars

    Anyone after a car? Head to 4071 Europe and head to the garage/petrol station on the way out of zelengorsk, dupers have lined up about 10-12 cars on the road. Managed to kill one but got flanked by two others. I took a screenshot of the bastards but can't upload it yet.

    My Favorite Hoarding Simulator

    Just a quick update; I just shot my car 😣 I had it parked in the line of fire while I was sniping zeds. I have been saving spare parts but I'll be lugging tires all over the map after I can find a new ride.... [edit] This is why they say two is one and one is none...

    Dayz server hosting issue

    Google OmegaManager. It's a great tool for installing a server as well as mods and it keeps everything updated.
  10. Hello survivors! Most of you have probably experienced that classic moment in DayZ after walking around for hours in search of something to do, where you have contemplated whether or not you should become a bandit. I'm here to offer an airtight argument as to why you absolutely should do so during your career. If you watch the Matrix film, a cult classic phenomenon that has revolutionized how we think about reality, you will realize that the existence of The One depends on the existence of Mr. Smith. They complete each other. If there were only heroes in DayZ, they would not be heroes. One depends on the other. Without darkness, there is no light. The heroes only can only conquer evil if it exists. Heroes are good and should exist. Therefore, fulfill your ethical obligations as a Dayz survivor and join the dark side! But fear not, there a wide variety of bandits that DayZ needs to truly thrive. Here are a list of suggestions that I personally recommend you to choose from: The Psychopath The Thief The Mischief Maker The Friend Betrayer The Team Traitor The Military Madman The Existential Nihilist The Trophy Hunter The Sadistic Torturer The Impulsive Murderer The Dogmatic Terrorist The Deceiver The Reckless Drunk Driver The Innocent Civilian Sniper Please feel free to recommend your favorite type of bandit so that others can be inspired and we can increase the total number of bandits in DayZ. Every day is a new story!

    Tenment Loot?

    Hello, as everyone knows, there are no high-rise loungers and co. Now I tried to place loot with the offline editor but unfortunately it does not work. Is there a tool or something you can use to create your own loot positions?
  13. I couldn't be more satisfied with the developers communication with the community. In fact, I would go so far as to say they have the best communication of any development team since the advent of gaming. Even with a fully completed masterpiece they are regularly in direct contact with their biggest fans and if you check their Twitter page you will see a fresh, new update is about to happen! They also restrict honest opinions and topics created by community members to ensure that only the most common and popular opinions are heard. Censorship is very important in this digital age and we cannot have rogue community members dissenting against popular opinion. The rebels must be controlled.
  14. If people think the communication is shitty then maybe they could change their approach. If people think their communication is fine then maybe I can change mine.

    The glass is actually overflowing because it is a quarter of the size they said it'd be.

    [SUGGESTION] Gearing Point System

    Like I said. Nevermind. I'm not going to explain my point of view any further. If you see the glass half empty then that's your own fault. Carry on, close the thread.
  17. itll be done when its done. and they wil communitcate with us when they are ready to. posting a thread every day about how salty you are with them will do nothing to change this whatsoever. so... ya...... it kinda is...

    DeSpawn to Respawn CHEATERS!

    Daar is baie nuanses in die spel wat spelers nie die geleentheid gee om die spel situasie te assesseer nie: - wie die speler in noue visuele kontak sien - die speler het die bediener verlaat of teruggekeer - wat jou vermoor het Een kant van hierdie faktor kan die spel op 'n goeie vlak van die spel atmosfeer wees. Die tweede kant van hierdie faktor stel oneerlike spelers in staat om hul oneerlike handelinge en bewegings te masker. Miskien moet die wêreldspeler posisioneringstelsel die speler voorsien van 'n inset naby die speler se laaste uitgangspunt, maar ver van die speler se posisioneringpunt op die bediener.

    Game crashes on startup

    "will be fixed on Steam in the future." Who knows when "the future" might refer... 😞
  20. Curious how everyone feels about the how the "improved direct communication across all channels" is going? I'm in the "Bad to worse" category- if only because I expect more from a group that selfishly dumped a full release game on us at Christmas time for financial gain and retained all the early access bullshit. They claim "We'll talk about it when it's ready" which judging by the lack of communication suggests they're still trying to figure out the roadmap as we approach April. This poll isn't about trolling the devgroup or the community moderators as much as to provide a tool to measure how this "improved communication across all channels" is working out.

    @BetterDeadThanZed it's probably because it has sensitive info on the maniphest. But I can assure you that it has been fixed and will be available on Steam in an upcoming update. Last entry from the log.. Geez closed this task as Resolved.Mon, Mar 11, 10:11 AM Geez claimed this task. Comment Actions Hello MetalHead. The issue has been fixed internally and will be fixed on Steam in the future. Regards, Geez

    Invisible zombies

    Is anyone else experiencing this? One theory I had was that a zombie was somehow saved as a persistent item in the database and as a result was invisible and unkillable. I deleted the "types" files in the database in case my theory was right, but the invisible zombie is still there. It's in two areas of the map so far.

    [SUGGESTION] Gearing Point System

    I'm confused. None of the things you point out here changed. Nothing added any value to your character save for the fact that you can grow a full beard in 5 minutes. Keeping in mind this was something they introduced to add some sense of "experience" on your character. Zombies were glitchy af in populated servers then... they still are now. There may be a couple more zombies... which doesn't really matter since they still glitch all over the fucking place as soon as you get 20 or more people in a server. Sense of danger? How is that different? Back then you could be alone with one other guy on a server, walk around a corner straight into him and eat a bullet. Now you can be alone with one other guy on a server, walk around a corner straight into him and eat a bullet. The one thing that did change significantly was the stamina bar which, in your story, merely prevented you from doing what you wanted to do: meet your friends on the other edge of the map. So let me know how enjoyable your first PVP experience is on a glitchy high pop server after you complete your 10 hour journey to meet up with your friends and you get killed after getting stuck in a doorway while seeking cover and mauled to death by zombies 5 feet away from your character.

    DeSpawn to Respawn CHEATERS!

    If you had a 15 second spawn in timer like we have a 15 second spawn out timer- where your character is just sitting or standing there defenseless this would deter that type of action. I also don't mind a backpedal of a random time between 30 seconds and a few minutes... things change so fast during times where hopping is even viable to use in PVP that nobody is gaining anything by waiting around in another server for the 90 seconds we already end up needing to wait for EVERY change as well as time on top of that. (Edit: I'm a PC guy so I don't know if you guys have the same delays we do for spawning out and changing servers.) I also like the spawn radius... which would help reduce the effectiveness of people ghosting into bases on the public official side. The combination of these 3 simple features would minimize abuse of the combat logging / base ghosting / server hopping meta and while not completely eliminating any of them would surely create an unattractive inconvenience when compared to just playing things out as intended- ie: Fight the fight / break in / run around.

    Did you put something via the Feedback tracker? Would be nice to see the official acknowledgement from BI about this.
