  1. Had these same thoughts.. a random zed that's armed with some kind of firearm. Could be military, police or a hunter but with poor aim unless your unlucky and bump right into them. Would possibly open the door for AI in mods even
  2. Its all good Bio.. This reminds me of someone on reddit...would trash talk DayZ while talking up miscreated like anything. After a couple of months he suddenly became very positive about Dayz again.. when asked about this sudden change in attitude, the only explanation he could offer, was that he was back on his meds!!! ;)
  3. A mix of both maybe.. There's been really challenging past iterations and some that were just too easy in my mind.. some preferred the former while others preferred the latter. The devs will have to balance both sides somehow until modding starts up I'm guessing. I've got a feeling that the final state of the vanilla standalone will be very harsh and simply surviving will be an achievement in itself, to really achieve anything more than that will probably require a group effort perhaps. We'll just have to wait and see.
  4. Yeah.. positional desync is or at least used to be way more common and explains what you experienced.. an actual invisible one is much rarer but I've seen it (No pun intended!). Players on TS said they had an invisible zombie so i ran there and sure enough, i could hear it and got attacked by it, but couldn't see it or shoot it.. may have fallen through the ground mesh. Not that long ago you had to shoot the dead zombie your saw on your client again for the server to register it as dead I believe, I think IMT has experienced that one before so he may be able to confirm that perhaps?
  5. Its pretty rare to see an invisible zombie, I'm just shy of 5000 hrs and only seen one ever in that time. Found it to be an interesting experience to be honest. And you can outrun them, unless your PC is a POS.. can hardly blame the devs for that can you?
  6. It shouldn't have any great effect overall seeing as the product on show is beta, though in a limited form
  7. After dealing with players as an admin, I'll just say whiners be whiners.. but we need to embrace them for the sake of the game, grievers feed on them as they cry the loudest!!!
  8. Every major stable update will come with a full wipe of the servers Moose.. everyone starts from scratch again
  9. Try squatting/crawling and rolling around the edges.. if that doesn't work work jam something in your keyboard to hold down the W key and face the outside of the house then pull your internet cable or turn off your modem and let yourself be disconnected.. when you relog you should be outside. Have never had to, but you can contact support and have a dev shift you i believe.. don't go back in there once your out!!!
  10. The modders would be pulling their hair out because anything they do will be broken by development.. it should all fall into place once the foundations are there for it.
  11. Let me try and answer what I can for you Kaiser88... -i cant skin and quarter the cows and deers Try skinning animals from the front of the carcass.. scan around until you can see the option, back towards yourself at times even -i dont find any fish when i go fishing Had someone catch their first carp on TS couple of nights ago, so you can still fish. There's a method for fishing then the last part seems to be simply getting the timing right.. watched a youtube tutorial when I had trouble with it. - tents and barrels disapear sometimes ( offline 5 min for smoking and when i m back all disapear ( 8 barrels, 2 millitary tents and 11 normal tents ) it can't be someone ) , an other day all barrels disapear but not the tents, and yesterday all the tents Haven't experienced this during .61 myself but some admins I know were talking about tents going but barrels staying on their server yesterday.. very strange! Could be a glitch with persistence maybe, the admins reverting back to an earlier persistence file or simply resetting persistence in the other cases you mentioned.. look into the server your playing on, could be the admins trying to scare you away if its a low pop public server possibly. - trucks and bus are always stuck on railroad or railroad crossing the only way for move it is to use an other vehicule for push it, same for rocks and little walls Railroads are a pain for sure.. that's why I take an alternative route or one where I have the speed to clear them. Was it mentioned in a status report a little while ago that they will be lowered possibly when the next patch comes out? I cant remember too be certain this wasn't just someone's interpretation of what was said though. -maybe add a tool or a command for unstuck vehicules would be interesting This goes against all that DayZ is about, wait for mods until this is available I would think. - i think i try every way possible to repair a weel with the tire repair kit Hold the repair kit in your hands, open the vehicles inventory then right click (could be left) on the wheel to repair, double wheels cant be repaired unless you use duct tape for a marginal increase.. ruined wheels cant be repaired at all even if they're pristine :) I take all the wheels off and back on once I have repaired them so it registered that they are repaired and doesn't compromise the vehicles handling. - Zombies and wolves pass through the doors This is a client to server glitch I believe.. had it happen once and yes it got me killed! I play on pretty high ping servers and its not really an issue.. Is it a high pop server? I still haven't encountered it on those either, but maybe I haven't been in the right situation for it to occur. - we can't use a saline bag with IV kit on yourself ( and i dont find the way for fill and use a blood bag, i just can fill a seringe with blood but i can't use it on me ) , when you are alone and sick it's very hard to survive to the sickness That's the DayZ way.. wait for mods for this to be changed I would think. - all water is drinkable and dont need a purification tablets I know plenty of players that have contracted cholera when they drank water while not healthy so I'd say this isn't correct. -Is there a blood,food and thirst gauge somewhere ? (menu, options...) i dont find it No there isn't any blood gauge except in experimental servers.. food and thirst indicators are there when you open your inventory.. if you don't see them it means your nether thirsty or hydrated etc. Hope this helps you enjoy the game a bit more.
  12. No dude.. you should be ashamed for being uninformed, then thinking your small narrow minded view has any right to be posted here!.. its called game development and the 101 of game development is when you add things you break things and then sometimes the things you break have a low priority for fixing.. simple as that! Besides I know of people using grenades just fine.. what's your problem with them? Oh.. its easier to whine about something than look into finding a solution maybe? Take a cement pill and harden up would be my life advice for you I think!!!
  13. It's situational.. find a dupers base or a clan hoarding gear for resale on public servers, maybe even just a group or person you have some major beef with, then yeah.. feel free to toss everything. Do this to any random camps you come across on a server and you'll possibly put the owners of the camp off playing on that server again, which isn't good for the well being of the server.. so it's a dick move. Much better to pick a little from it perhaps and hope nobody will notice, when you hit tough times you might be able to use their gear as a backup, or my personal favorite.. use the intel from knowing where they are based to your advantage! Anyhow.. take this as an example of a dick move.. had some kiddie clan roll the two owners of the servers base and de-spawned it all, then boast they had done it to the admins base.. which they hadn't because the admins bases were perfectly safe still.. they only screwed over the people that pay for them to have a server to play on and undid all the work they put into the camp when they had a rare opportunity to actually play on their own server.. sounds like a dick move wouldn't you agree? But how far removed from that is what your doing.. tossing everything just for the sake of it?
  14. I think its designed (even the buggy spawns like pistols everywhere in balota) to motivate players to go certain places and that creates possible interactions between players.. its a big map and if you find everything randomly in small section of it, then there's little reason to go anywhere else. They're mapping player movement and experimenting with it no doubt, but lets not forget that a lot still has to be added into the CLE so things will change. Being a fresh spawn on a high pop server isn't easy and sometimes its just luck that you find what you need quickly on your travels inland, not uncommon to reach the middle of the map with just bits and pieces on me, but once I've found a B95 and even just a handful of .308 I'm reasonably happy, and there's places I've found that will usually spawn them even if i have to search the same place twice. Usually finding a backpack (even a burlap for an improvised) is more of an issue, but i think that's become easier lately.
  15. Once you get through the "I'm hungry" stage into the energized state, you don't need so much food intake (depends a little on how much physical activity your character is doing) These status indicators saying hydrated/energized will show up when you open your inventory.. try and balance your food/water intake so both indicators turn bright green (this is how you regenerate blood, which in turn gives you a healthy status when enough time has passed) Fill up on apples until your get the message "you feel stuffed" comes up if your struggling, use this method until you learn other ways to gather food.. apples will be nerfed at some point so learn not to rely on them. This advice is what you need to do for water, if you get desperate and need to travel while still having no water containers, a gas canister serves as a water vessel you can hold in your hands if need be.. you fill then empty it out two times to flush all the petrol out, be careful not to drink the whole thing (especially when opening doors) as its a lot of water and will make you throw up and then you'll lose whatever food and water is held in your stomach.
