  1. 5 months till the new update? Realy?

    The zeitgeist of DayZ was not the zeitgeist of gameplayers - they are a pretty conservative bunch. This is why DayZ has occasionally been called an "anti-game". But statistically the average gameplayer is the majority and the majority are the players who play the statistically most-played game, and the most played is named "best". So the majority gameplayers who stumble across DayZ want to push DayZ out of it's zeitgeist into average gameplayer normality. This is where it will make most money and be most boring. I like to think DayZ attracted - and will attract? - non-standard non-normal players. There are already plenty of games to meet standard expectations.
  2. Basebuilding

    In the REAL world, there is no base or construction of any kind that can "stop" the entry of anyone - if they have access to the same or similar tech equipment as the builders - except if that location is under real-time manned surveillance when the outsiders try to enter. This is just a rock bottom real-world security fact. So are we looking for fantasy indestructible bases with a magic doorkey that cannot be take off the dead body of a player ?
  3. You ever read the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam ? .. Alike for those who for TODAY prepare, And those that after a TOMORROW stare, A Muezzin from the Tower of Darkness cries "Fools! your Reward is neither Here nor There." For in and out, above, about, below, 'Tis nothing but a Magic Shadow-show, Play'd in a Box whose Candle is the Sun, Round which we Phantom Figures come and go. xxp
  4. Rain revamp

    Get under a tree - not too close and not too far away, about a step away from the trunk ; and make a simple fire with sticks ("search for sticks"), NOT logs or stones etc - make firestarter - start fire - DROP ALL your gear & clothes on the ground - every bit, just DROP it - until you are naked. Keep picking up sticks and feeding the fire (crouch close to fire) you begin to warm up until you are DRY. Just keep turning and search for sticks without moving from place, turn and feed them on the fire - The trick is = As soon as YOU are dry all your gear on the ground is DRY TOO, you can put it back on. (but hey - don't do this anywhere you're likely to meet anyone)
  5. Rain revamp

    Raincoat - but also plastic sheet, or groundsheet + any kind of headcover should keep you functionally dry - BUT these should go OVER the top of whatever you are already wearing, you should not have to EXCHANGE them for your jacket - This is realistic, everyone has seen photos of troops wearing groundsheets over their heads or wrapped around their bodies, etc. right?? In rain or snow, no one takes off any top clothes to put on a waterproof or raincoat or poncho. (all these things are standard army issue, every military in the world has them) Also BLANKETS can be used for many things, as well as keeping you warm, for shelter, ponchos (again), making backpacks, but there are NO blankets in the whole country !! All those houses, but zero blankets = this is one very STRANGE European country. NO blankets? Already a while ago it was mooted that boots and shoes should wear out progressively (-slowly-) as you walked - but that never showed up in the game. xxp
  6. OK - you mean simulated pvp like chess - where there are only a dozen fixed moves that you can learn in less than half an hour because they are so totally simplistic ? Definitely not worth doing. No smart person would ever play such a clunky simplistic game.
  7. << This is why I started playing with my friends. We bought the game to shoot zombies and have fun torturing other people. Pretending to be axe murderers and shit. Killing zombie is fun. Torture and robbery is fun. KoS in DayZ SA is not fun... That is why god made Battle Royale >> - quote scriptfactory 2017
  8. ^ = LMAO = !! Baker Tell it like it is !
  9. Local servers - Connecting failed

    According to dayzspy.com there is only one Australian public hive DayZ server that might be online currently (players = 0 this morning) Multiplay :: V3S Heaven all the rest ( total 10?) are private hive except 1 Experimental * is that true?
  10. DAYZ Status from a famous Youtube blogger

    Facepunch Studios has 20 full-time employees working directly only on Rust at last count - not including planning, direction, PR, management, or other staff part-timing other projects plus staff full time on other projects(.. just saying). ... Also RUST is really not my choice of game, not even slightly. It is a thoughtless good time game for shouty kids - like those jungle gyms you leave your children in at the McDo
  11. DAYZ Status from a famous Youtube blogger

    pr and brand and advertising needs PUSHING.. we all know how much total <cr@p> makes millions because the advertising is over 30+ percent of the total budget - That's how it works (right Walt?) But props and gratz to those fantastic dedicated BI technicians who endlessly change hot valves on the AI
  12. Local servers - Connecting failed

    If you can't ping or trace route - this is def NOT DayZ fault - look at your windows firewall try traceroute to one of the DayZ servers you can reach - compare the firewall entries remember UDP !! Try tracerout to servers one digit out from a DayZ IP in the last two (then three) of the 4 groups, just at random. Also traceroute to other non-DayZ online games in AU (look at the GSP gamer sites for addresses & ports) * - also you should be able to open any UDP or TCP ports you want to in your ISP box, but they still then have to go through windows firewall. Make you sure you haven't blocked off any top level domains in your IP filter ( by mistake or because of incoming porn or other crap ). 'Ensure' you aren't running hackware that has deliberately stopped you linking to something relevant. If you don't use an antivirus, get SPYBOT & RUN a full check.. you are maybe being mal-directed to some dump in Rangoon that doesn't exist anymore And, hell, try changing your DNS servers <there are plenty free public - Search "Public DNS Servers list" to find a few for Australia, rotate them in your DNS list XXP
