  1. I actually talked to one of the devs on a steam post and I guess they are planning to set it up so you can host a game if you want, but not sure on the admin stuff. Maybe for private games since they use a different character I think, they could let us have admin powers. We will have to see what they add to the game in time. Thank you all for the good info, good hunting!
  2. Well you can put down an empty ammo crate, then if you know the scripting can add stuff to it, Im just not that good at it. As far as the zombies, I can put them in the world no problem, and they stand around, sometimes will move a bit, but they just wont attack me. I thought I had the factions correct so they would be aggressive but they just dont attack. But I got tired of messing with it and took the lazy way out and bought the standalone DayZ version. Problem is, to host your own server you cant do it from your PC, you actually have to pay money and rent a server?!?! AND on top of that, you cant even have full admin rights on that server you are paying for?!? If Im going to pay a monthly freekin fee just to have my game server, I want full admin rights, godmode, noclip, kick, ban, summon any item or vehicle I want, etc etc. So now Im thinking about going back to the mod lol.
  3. Ok thank you and thank all of you for the good info maybe I will rent my own private server sometime soon.
  4. Excellent so it sounds like at least on both server types you would be able to take care of rude players or hackers. But on private you say you have full admin panel? Could I spawn specific items as an admin? What about setting up new player starting items? And could I increase the loot spawn and respawn rates for the entire server? Sorry for more newby questions but Im having trouble getting answers elsewhere.
  5. Well I did talk to one of the mods/devs for the stand alone DayZ on the forums earlier, and she said you have to rent a server to have your own server, but that you cant be an admin even on the server you are renting?!? O.o If I pay a monthly fee for a server in ANY game, I want full admin rights. I run a public server in an online game you will always run into trolls/hackers/A-holes, so Im just supposed to put up with it? Not be able to kick or ban or use other admin powers? Sorry to go a bit off topic but the hosting thing sounds kind of screwed up for this game haha.
  6. Excellent thank you for that link, looks like tons of good info there.
  7. Ahh ok thanks for the info. Its cool that ARMA has such features as to try and be as realistic as possible, but the constant fading in and out and in and out from light to dark is overkill to be honest. Is there any possible way to at least tone it down?
  8. It must be pretty good if you like it that much you have my interest. Is it mainly PVP? And can you host your own game and set it up how you like?
  9. Im not normally into PVP either but I thought DayZ stand alone was PVP mainly? Are there PVE servers too? Or can you host your own server and make it PVE? Also what do you mean BI games? And thanks for your reply.
  10. Thanks for your reply. Ya Ive tried different servers, its all the same light to dark to light fading junk, extremely annoying. And it happens at all times, not just dusk or dawn it happens in the middle of the day. Looking down does seem to brighten it up, but its not really a solution more of temporary work around. I think there is something graphically, maybe a ini file or something that could be tweaked to stop the silly fading. Anyone know if that is possible??
  11. Hi all. Im new to the DayZ mod, but used to mess with ARMA 1 and 2 a long while ago. I never got too heavy into the mission making, but I used the editor sometimes to make very simple missions so I could test out things, practice shooting, driving, flying, etc. So I decided to mess with the editor for DayZ as well to test things out. But I have some questions I need help with. 1. Is there a way I can use or download a big pre-made mission to populate the entire map with active zombies, vehicles, ammo/weapon crates and loot?? Or do I have to do it all manually for the whole map? 2. Why cant I add ammo and weapon crates to my test missions in DayZ like I used to in ARMA 1 and 2 before?? I thought maybe my DayZ game was messed up, so I booted Operation Arrowhead, dropped an ammo crate, did preview, and boom it worked great. But when I try to find the ammo crates to add to DayZ in the editor, they arent there?!? 3. When I place zombies in the editor then go to preview they just stand there, I thought I had the faction stuff set up so they were enemies but they dont attack. What did I do wrong? 4. If I place certain things on the map in the editor, they dont show up as the little circle like they are supposed to. Zombies and ammo crates for example after I place them, dont show on the map as a circle or ammo crate icon which makes it very hard to know where they are. Do I need to reinstall the game or something? 5. Why cant I add certain vehicles such as M1 tanks, T90 tanks, etc? Every time I try, the mission wont load. 6. Ive tried hitting alt e to open the 3D editor, and it just wont open. How can I open the 3D editor for working on DayZ mod missions? Thanks in advance for any help on these questions.
  12. Sorry about that I thought I was in the right forums this is evidently the stand alone version of DayZ forums. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, and also if you dont mind how do you like the stand alone version? I just might buy it too.
  13. Hello all. I couldnt find any search results for this problem, so Im asking here in a new post. I recently decided to reinstall all the ARMAs I have on steam, I have them all but ARMA 3 and Im thinking of getting that too. I also wanted to try the DayZ mod. So far I like the DayZ mod a lot. But the problem Im having is the game fades from nice and bright, to very dark, when I turn my character. It goes back and forth from light to dark and light again, even if Im standing out in a very well lit sunny area it still does it. If I just stand still it doesnt change, it only does it when I change the direction Im facing. Its extremely annoying, and is ruining the game for me. Nothing should be fading in and out like that on the brightness of the game, when Im in very well lit areas. If I run into a dark area, ok I can understand. But not while Im in well lit areas and there is no reason at all for things to magically fade to darkness. Ive heard if you character gets injured that sometimes it can effect this, but it does it even when my character has nothing wrong with him. Also, night time is so dark for me its 100% unplayable. If I join a server and its night, I literally have to find another server as I cant see ANYTHING. I like dark games, but thats insane, so I think something is wrong with my game/graphics/etc. Also, even though I turn my gamma up, if I check it again after a bit it changes. Its as if it wont stay where I put it. So does anyone know why this is happening and if there is a fix for it? Any help would be great, thanks in advance.
  14. Ahh ok so this must be the stand alone DayZ forums. Thanks for the heads up, and by the way how is the stand alone version??
