Nice job guys, looking great - might finally login again after a few months away to try this out. It's all going in the right direction, I love the heavy survival aspect now. No more periphery dots = WIN

Edit: Matt the changelog is really hard to read with my eye condition, any chance you can repost as list? nevermind

I like this one best: [FIXED] - Variable spelling mistakes hsould be corrected now.

It all sounds good, but there is one thing I am worried about. I currently have an ALICE pack, which is full, after the patch goes live and the ALICE pack's space becomes smaller, will I lose some of my stuff in there?

What is this infection stuff???

Bloodbags can give infection...

Uncooked meat can give infection...

Unboiled water can give infection...

What kind of infection???

Do I become a zed?

Do I become sick (ie need antibiotics)?

What will happen to meeee???

Also... will Box of Matches be more available (read: less rare)?

Right now the number issue I have in the game is finding a box of matches... I find hunting knives all over, hatches all over, tin cans all over... I find everything I need, but never matches to actually make a fire.

Will there be optional ways to create fires ? Sticks and thread? Short circuitting electrical cables? Using a magnifying glass? What about a simple Lighter instead of matches?

Need more fire!

I'm on a whitelist server, but I moved over there recently from the public server they had. No idea what a fresh spawn starts with.

I've been to 3-4 different supermarkets and never found matches.

I find tonnes of food (carried over 20 food recently, but ate most of it to get blood back), as well as Watches x lots, some drinks, Makarov mags, sometimes an ALICE pack (which I have already) and other thingamajigs of little use.

Matches are my unicorns... I hear about them but I can never find them...

And I don't wanna be infected (whatever that does...) :(

      In the making for over 2 years, we present the best of the 300 episode DayZ series compilation in 4K.
      This video takes you through the evolution of Arma 2 Dayz from the first few days of Vanilla DayZ mod to the rise and fall of empires in DayZ Epoch Mod.
      It features 4 hours of footage from the 70 hour series.  It took over a month to make this and 4 days to upload and about 7 attempts to encode taking around 35 hours each attempt before a file was rendered successfully. In the attempt to encode this file, I had an OS harddrive complete mechanical failure due to the two years of heavy usage.  300TB of total footage recorded was based on the avg file size of a 1 hour uncompressed video. The file was originally 4:20:00 but it is a known problem to youtube that for some unknown reason long videos are having the end portion of the video cut off.  The file was 97GB.  Ive probably spent far more than 2-3k hours on this series recording and editing footage. I've spent 136 hours in the last month making the last 4 episodes alone. 
      Listed below is a link to the youtube playlist, and all individual episodes and 1 hour specials if you still want more dayz content.

      Newer Youtube Playlist for the whole series.

      I have been having issues connecting to public servers for the last 2 weeks or so.  When I try to connect I get to the 'ready!' state and when the game is just about to connect I get the message: "Connection to the server has been lost".  When I try to connect again I get the 95 second wait timer and when it is just about to connect to the server I get the same message.
      I am able to connect to private servers so this issue baffles me a bit. I have verified my game cache files and have even uninstalled and reinstalled the game once.
      Any help would be appreciated.
