Not going to review the patch entirely because it's unfair having only played a few hours, but the temperature system could potentially put the last players off of this game. Being part of some good fighting only to have it spoiled all over with everyone in the team getting cold and eventually infected, despite RUNNING non-stop when it is not raining. No need to inform about heatpacks, being indoors, making fires etc. It's not a challenge but a distracting factor that ruins the pvp side. I agree that the system wasn't really working at all in the previous patch, and it would be silly to complain about the idea with temperatures since it has been there since the very beginning. The problem is getting colder and colder even if you are running. Like dehydration and exhaustion isn't already a problem, you are also punished with infections for actually moving around creating chances for player interaction. The more people move in dayz, the more fun the gameplay gets. It's a shame if this is not encouraged. Building campers have none of these problems, maybe we should all revert to camping cherno/elektro.

If somebody is camping for a long time, freeze him up, that's a good thing, to force him to do something, but being on the move you should be fine. Standing on a fire or being inside should do the job better, and get you warm faster, fine, but at least running outside should warm you up slowly.

First bug i ques. cant build no more metal fence. the option just not showing

So I hate to be a Debbie downer, but the temp issue is a game breaker... Can we please get a 1.8.4.1 hotfix applied right away so the mod isn't killed for good? I don't think it can endure another bout of game breaking glitches like 1.8.3 had.

I'm sure they are aware of any issues that goes on with temperature. R4Z0R foreseen this.

Warned him too, sadly he could not make it happen in time... So we get this. Believe this is a relatively easy problem to fix value wise though.

I wouldn't be too concerned. I'm confident a hotfix will come and tweak with temperature being more proper but I'm glad to see the temperature actually functioning.

They have been removed so no bug.

No one has stated any issue to fix yet all that's been said is heat generated from running is wrong.

Ok I see an issue with movement ill see what I can do to fix. We should be able to show admins how to fix without a hotfix.

Temp worked before, It was mostly a factor at night by the coast or if it was raining. Now it's similar to playing on namalsk without a snowsuit (I'm exaggerating) I agree the temp system needed to be updated but why over rotate on addressing the issue?

It should be used to prevent campers much like wild spawning zed were suppose to do (which never made it in) now you'll freeze while running full sprint which doesn't seem right.

I hope it's fixed soon cause all the other items and features in this version are awesome.

Lol cant win at all. Fix a broken system that didn't work 99% of the time and everyone moans.

If you look at debug info your talking .0somthing differences not flat out instant cold.

But as ive said there is an issue with movement its lower then standing

##### Share on other sites

How is the rest of the temperature system? Now we know why moving is lower then it should be.

Working as intended I'd say. It's definitely a lot better than before

well that's taking it to the extreme. I said the rest of this patch is awesome but tbh i'm a little perplexed on how a system gets added that was not tested more thoroughly to stable. I literally jumped in the game ran from gorka to grishino and was freezing before I even got there (it wasn't raining and was sunny out)

you're doing a great job, keep it up. I'm just a little frustrated as a player as this is pretty game breaking and everyone in sidechat is complaining about it.

You guys are testing it. We will fix the issues you tell us are a problem.

I agree, the new temp system is working great except for movement not keeping you warm.  Unfortunately I also agree with the sentiment that this bug, if not fixed ASAP, could be the death blow to the mod.  Population has been dwindling on popular servers, and this bug really is a game breaker (I know that term is thrown around a lot...but it seriously does prevent you from being able to do something as simple as running from one town to the next without getting cold enough to get infected).

That issue aside, the new patch is FANTASTIC!  The new 300m zed spawn radius is a game changer!  Didn't think it would affect it that much but I was wrong.  Zombies are already spread out around the town by the time you walk up.  If there's any trees or hills obstructing your view of a town it can be extremely difficult to predict whether or not another player is in the area from the zombie presence.

Blood bagging is fixed!!  YAY!!!

Exhaustion (and gun sway) seems to take too long to recover (about 45 seconds like in 1.8.1), but you do NOT get exhausted very easily like you did in 1.8.1 which is right.  You have to actually jog a fair distance, sprint, or jump to get exhausted which is how it should be, so that is definitely fixed.  The 45 second time to recover seems harsh though.  Back in 1.7 and earlier days it would only take about 15 seconds or so to recover from exhaustion.

I do have to critique zombie speed and hit range again though.  I can literally jog backwards away from zombies in a straight line and they will never hit me.  They behave the same way they did back in 1.8.2 (35sec in you'll see me running backwards without being hit).  Unfortunately I feel that zombies will never be a real antagonist as long as you can simply press "w" and never get receive any damage.  Still craving the 1.8.1 experience where you actually had to avoid aggroing, because multiple zombies could chase you down, hit you, and knock you over.

All in all, aside from the temp issue, it's an awesome patch from what I've been able to test.  Can't wait to find a mosin and find tranq darts for a crossbow!!!   :D
