    Reporting issues is not about proving a point, it's about locating and resolving your problems. You appear to have quite good access to your server data, so the most efficient way would be for you to contact the Feedback Tracker, providing the files causing problems for you (in this case the backups only happening every 30 minutes) and asking for help or a fix from our side. Everything else can cause confusion, resulting in delay, which is not helping anyone.
  2. Your "vision" is focused on both the availability (or better - scarcity) of food-sources and diseases. The first is split into balancing of the existing mechanics as well as the loot distribution, and the implementation of missing mechanics, such as fishing and snare traps. We are already on our way with the balancing - new mechanics will be implemented when we can give them the priority. So far they are flavour, "just another source of food gathering", while they are without a doubt very atmospheric. Meaning, there are more decisive factors for DayZ gameplay and connected issues, which have to be prioritised at this point. Diseases are also on their way, with Cholera, Salmonella, Kuru and the function of the immune system receiving refinement. More diseases, poisoning options and ways to cure them will follow. "When" you will feel very comfortable in terms of "survival vs nature" again, is difficult to say, it depends not only on development progress, but also your luck or misfortune in the game. But when it comes to the development of the two factors mentioned above, rest assured that we are constantly working on them to move DayZ slowly towards the desired experience.

    Stable Update 1.0150627

    Have you verified your game files before playing? And just to confirm, you mean it's not possible to pack a tent that has already been erected? Was the tent put up before the update?

    It does not currently, it will be included with a later update.

    The DayZ Steam store description is a straight lie

    What counts for players is having a persistent gameplay experience. If that is ensured by a working backup system with an intended maximum loss of what was done in the last 30 seconds, it is still working. If you encounter issues with persistence not working, we ask you to report to our Feedback Tracker. Locked, as the initial posting is based on uninformed grounds.

    As he said. That should not be the case. If you experience something like this on PC, please report with all details on time, server, affected objects and location to our Feedback Tracker.

    Duplicating

    Please lets avoid accusations of who is duping or not, that's not the topic and only causing personal conflicts. As Weyland wrote: This was not introduced with the new update.

    Respan togheter with a friend

    We've had this suggestion multiple times, but it is not something we want to do. DayZ is based on the concept of permadeath, meaning players shouldn't have any control about their respawn location and have to team up as they would do with any random player. Searching for your friend can be an opportunity, as you can meet other players on the way without being enclosed in only "your group".

    Stable Update 1.01

    First of all thank you for taking the time writing all this. We really appreciate it and will try to reply adequately. Just to quickly debunk the one theory, Steam does not have any authority to force developers to release a game from Early Access. Neither does Microsoft or "the law" (all kinds of gossip around that has been popping up). The decision came from our side, for various reasons, which we have been talking about for the past months. We are aware of complaints about the release decision and what it means for the representation to the outside. It is not only our job (meaning we spend the better part of every day with it), but foremost our dedication and passion in every branch of the dev team to make DayZ the best game it possibly can be. While we try to explain development processes and decisions as well as possible, there's always a line beyond which we cannot talk about topics, or where it becomes difficult to understand why situations are as they are, if you are not necessarily following every development update with previous background knowledge in game modding/development. So we completely understand that there are doubts in the community and that those doubts also reach our most passionate players. I guess every one of us had a kinda different vision of what the DayZ 1.0 would look like. However, regardless of the version number we currently have, and if there are warnings being displayed before starting the game, the team is working on improving the game and providing further updates. This is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new phase, namely post-release development. We are happy to hear that you agree that progress has been made, many are denying this reality while facing their doubts and frustration, as legitimate as those might be. You saw the first results with the Stable release of 1.01 just last week, and more updates will follow throughout the year. Some new bugs may appear, some issues might take a while to get fixed, but we are on a one-way street forward, even if it is a rocky one. We are reading all of your feedback and will act on it, while staying true to our vision of DayZ as a game and platform for content creators. Those are all aspects that did not change with the 1.0 release. Again, thank you (all of you) for your constructive feedback and sharing your doubts with us in a reasonable manner. We take them seriously.

    Stable Update 1.01

    Mods can be broken by a new update. They are not developed by us and thus there can always be an issue with them and the game.

    Some feedback and questions

    Hello guys, just a quick reminder that we are watching. Please try to keep personal attacks out of this discussion and stay with the topic (the suggestions made by OP). There are several ways to play DayZ and both the Vanilla and modded versions still have a lot of iteration ahead of them, to unfold their true direction and potential. Stay civilised and respect each others preferences/suggestions.

    Stable Update 1.01

    Thank you for the details. Can you please confirm that you did not have any mods active and did not play on a modded server when this happened? Mods can have influence on regular weapons/items as well. So far we haven't been able to reproduce the issue with these items on Vanilla settings.
