In the Standalone, there should be times when weather changes.

It could be a very windy and rainy night.

It could be a snowy day (Maybe you need a heat pack every now and then.)

Lakes and ponds could be frozen into ice. (Water bottles are useless in snow)

For the last 2 weeks (09/2017 Standalone) it has ALWAYS been a very rainy and windy night. = "soaked" - "cold" - "shaking" ..
So you build a fire NOW and get dry/warm or you die. Then when you are sorted out - it is STILL a very RAINY windy night.
Last night I had 3 hours on/off of what looked totally like (effing) SLEET.  You move even 200 yards under FOREST COVER  and you are already wet, cold, soaked, really cold, shaking .. wearing all pristine Gorka stuff, ushanka, new boots, raincoat - wow even the stuff in my pockets & the pistol in my backpack is wet (and stays wet for a day unless I deal with it)
- then  ...same  again ..
..& etc ..
So I don't know if you survivor folk (eg @harley001) are ready for bad WINTER conditions, & snow and negative temperatures.

I may look like Hell but I made it  it back  to tell yo' NEVER forget folks, - " WINTER will freeze your Pumpkins "
And digging up worms in ground below zero temperature? .. break your spade, bend your knife.. go ahead try it.. ground frozen, if any worms are around they will be about 3-5 feet down..
Never mind, you can always eat apples (oh, nope you cant, there ain't any) - and drink ice from the bottle that froze in your pack..

Keep a cover on your gun muzzle. Don't fog your scope. Always wear dry gloves. Look out for frostbite. Don't ever let your clothes get damp when you warm up  (.. the usual)

have fun

      I was watching some of my old videos the other night and I came to think about all the amazing people I have meet in the world of Chernarus, and tons of  amazing friendships along the way. This has to be one of the greatest friendships ive had in DayZ. The fact that we could have never known each other, just by the blink of an bullet. This was the night we met Prin, which happen to end up becoming one of our bestfriends. From this night and every night for a year and half we played in this mad world that we call DAYZ. Every night we had a huge crew, always ranging in numbers. (mister, xboxdwayne, lawdog, pstar, and many others. We call ourselfs the Zambie Crew.  We roleplayed, Pvp, reordered skits, held up tons of people up at gunpoint, and had many fights at the nwaf. I just love Dayz. There is no other game that you can get such a interaction where it becomes a factor of literately not knowing if they could become one of your bestfriends. This game shows what a split decision can effect, and not just a way of a game decision, the decision you make in the game actually becomes a part of your real life. If we would have shot her,  thats a real life friendship that never was. The heartbeating factor you get when you are in Chernarus is insane. And the amazing thing is i know im not the only person to experience this, many dayz players have met friends that to this day still game with, all from meeting them in the world of Chernaus. To that I say cheers, And i Cant wait for many more friendships to come! 
      The Zambie Crew and I were heading north to Novo to celebrate the purge weekend. On the way we ran into two survivors. We captured both of them. One was a female by the name of ZambiePrincess, the other was a deaf male who spoke no words. He died, she lived. Fast forward to present time the crew and princess are still surviving, picking its way around the wastelands of Chernaurs.
      This is the story of how we met Princess.
      8:18 ending montage *for those that dont know, princess (PRIN) became a big part of the ZambieCrew Family 
       **SPOILER ALERT** also goes to show how crazy KOS can be, you never know who you are going to meet in dayz. Video is from June 2015 @Baty Alquawen
