sorry I saw a video of the July 17, 2016 where you could see a player build a base (type dayz epoch) after nearly a year's output and a single patch of this building system has not heard more talk

Yes its true, the vehicles are back.

Logon and go search, the vehicles-spots are the new Tishy. The vehicles now are not perfect but very better since removed.

We played all the week with friends, few hours each day, and didn't encounter even one single invisible infected, it looks like you crushed that bug guys :)

This said, yesterday I witnessed something a little strange when I was at NW airfiled. I was around the military camp at the end of the runway (near to the lights that indicate the end of the runway) and was going towards the blue storehouses when I've been suddenly pushed away from side to side (just like an invisible Z was there and was messing with me) but no hit and no damage. After that,my view was centered and stuck, even when I moved my mouse to change my way, the game automaticaly re-center my view straight in front of me. I logged off and re log and that was gone. Not the big deal if you ask me, but a little surprising ^^

Anyway, I hope vehicules are actually back like Sqeezorz said, I'm going to check that out right away,

see you survivors !

oh boy am i pissed. I just found a (possibly) new and interesting glitch. I for some reason in game randomly passed out, after a while of being unconscious my screen read "Player mass: lost connection" i hoped that this wasnt one of those hive glitches where the server wipes your character, so i stayed their and waited as my friend watched my body. I then, after about 5 or so minutes, woke up but my screen remained black with the same text. i was still in control of my character however, as when i moved forward, backward, left, and right my friend could see me moving in these directions when i specified that i was pressing the keys to move in those directions. I hoped, since i was supposedly awake and alive, that a quick relog would fix this. BUT NO, i relog into the same server to find my character with an absolute assload of gear is not only dead, but there is no body where i had logged. Id be lying if i said i wasnt absolutely infuriated, i had been on that character for weeks and had a AK101 and a Winchester Model 70.

We met the regulars of the server yesterday. One of them already said hi to Emuthreat (read: hit him) and probably at me as well a bit prior to the firefight when I was at Cherno.

It's nice to have a good old feud right off the bat.

I can't believe I missed that he was only unconscious.  I was just so excited at seeing that it was the same person I had been looking for, that I completely spaced-out on his posture.  Missed a good opportunity for an interrogation.

I had no other choice unfortunately. He raised his gun and I didn't know if he had ammo and since the VSS round is an hard hitting round I decided to finish him off. If he didn't raise his gun we could've tied him up. I'm actually glad that I was there because if he had ammo in there he might've killed you since you had no weapon out at that point.

So, I feel it is worth mentioning, that we have successfully destroyed and despawned a couple vehicles, and then exhaustively searched for their replacements to confirm the cycle is working.

I have one complaint though: IT TOOK 40 FRIGGIN' SHOTGUN SHELLS TO TAKE A V3S CHASSIS FROM INOPERABLE TO UN-ENTERABLE.  Either vehicle durability needs some tweaks, or somebody needs to start handing out free shotshells, because this is unsustainable for more than a week or two.

Working out of town today, then TWD tonight, so I might not be online much today.   Ended up being a pointless drive in the country, so now I have some time to kill this afternoon.

In other words, your vehicles are safe, for now.  Time to go dead truck huntin'.

Emu you don't feel that is normal? Take 40 shotgun shells out to your car, put it to a door and see if you can enter it at 39 :)

I am sure there is nothing left of the door, but you still should be able to enter it.

Since making the switch to private servers, I haven't driven a car in over a week, let-alone a bus.  Found a few stranded ones laying around the map, and even de-spawned one as a service to the server.

I'm getting the feeling that nobody else knows or cares about recycling vehicles.

Perhaps BI could make some changes in order to get the data that they need, including turning off persistence for vehicles.  I want to see persistent vehicles as much as anyone, but the way thing are now, it just isn't working.

... or just do it the right way and make these vehicles despawn after they have been wrecked .....

 

as as soon as a vehicle suffers a traumatic enough crash the components get ruined , and no matter how many parts you replace with pristine parts the car will not start - gas is full . When this state happens it should be available to reset when server reset comes , but they do not for some reason . Don't make us blow the vehicle up to get rid of it please  , it's not good for a gameplay perspective in an apocalyptic game with little bullets and grenades .

Guess what the previous Experimental build was all about... exactly. My guess is that they might push the previous or even the current build to Stable this wednesday during maintenance.

Here's hoping we get some awesome Mocap vids, a fly-by over all the new/fixed areas, a professional guess as to when .62 lands, and/or a veryyy detailed SR.

If the new HUD and Stamina system are being added to .62, I def want to know as well. -- But mainly this SR had better be pretty illuminating ^_^ I think the Devs and Staff have a great chance to silence critics today and deliver a lot of hope!

      Good Friday guys,
      Small Experimental update today. We fixed animals above/under ground - no more "Santa's herds" on Experimental servers. We love Christmas but it's too early. :)
      Have a nice weekend and see you on Monday!

      Hello Survivors!
      This week, we're sharing progress on new melee combat animations from Victor, our Lead Sound Designer Andrej is teasing audio updates in 0.62 and 0.63 and our Community Manager Baty is sharing her experience from a community event that happaned on DayZ Underground this weekend. We also want to inform you about planned website improvements and recent changes on our forums.

      Dev Update/Hicks
      Greetings Survivors,
      For this Status Report we're going to take a look through the current tasks and immediate goals for .61 Hotfixes, .62 Development, and the march towards Beta. I'd also like to list out the top 3 issues the QA department is looking for more data on from you all over on the Feedback Tracker.
       
      .61 Stable Branch:
      QA Team is currently investigating reports of unlootable corpses. Repro steps being investigated before gameplay programming team can attempt to address. Gameplay Programming team currently working on addressing physics issues with .61 Exp/Unstable build that result in animals sometimes moving below terrain QA Team is verifying adjustments to vehicle physics on Exp/Unstable branch that should address vehicles slipping below terrain Gameplay Programming team is working on addressing some legacy security issues found on .61 Stable QA Team is verifying changes to vehicle persistence and the handling of destroyed vehicles on Exp/Unstable branch that should address problems on stable with destroyed vehicles sticking around.  
      Over on the .62 Front, Adam and his team continue pushing along - and for those that missed PAX East we will include the cut of slow pan through WIP Broadleaf Forest, and pan through grass with the WIP new grass shader.
       
      .62 Current Tasks:
      Young Conifer Distribution Additional Color Adjustments to Tree & Bush Colors Chernarus Lighting config changes Performance Analysis  
      [youtube]Ip9l1RFPm8g[/youtube]
      On the Beta side of the fence, there is a large amount of work ahead of us. I know we've made comparisons before about the extensive changes being compared to a spinal transfusion for DayZ, and that cannot be stated enough. This is a massive undertaking, and it is and will take time. That said, lets take a look at what the team is currently focusing on for their immediate tasks.
       
      Beta Current Goals:
      Rework of User Action System Iterating Melee Combat Mechanics Inventory Refactorization Internal Testing of Knife/Axe Prototype Combat Soft Skills Prototype Introducing Animations for User Actions that previously used generic Creating support for vehicles to functionally have more than 4 wheels (V3S for example) Electricity System Prototyping Unjamming Anims for New Player  
      Lastly, I'd like to list the top 3 issues the QA team needs more feedback on from our official Feedback Tracker - If you have any data, repro steps, etc on these issues please feel free to update them with what you have!

      Dev Update/Viktor
      Today, I would like to talk about our progress on melee combat. At this point, we have implemented animations for unarmed combat, axe, pipe and knife combat. These animations are still work-in-progress but allow us to test basic behavior in-game.
      This is very useful: we can now iterate with programmers and designers and adjust every animation accordingly so that it blends better, for instance if you perform continuous attacks. Our plan is to have unique attack animations for fist fight, axe, knife and items like fire extinguisher, pith fork, baseball bat, pipe and many other items in order to achieve a unique look and feel when fighting.
      Creating attack animations for this new system is bit more time consuming though. In the old combat, there was one attack animation per item. In the new melee combat, we now have a series of 6 animations per item. These animations blend together, so you can either perform attack and go to idle or you can continue with another attack without interruption.



      In upcoming weeks, we are planning to add damage to the player and hit reactions, as well as continue on balancing the entire melee combat system.

      Ahoy survivors!
      The audio department is operating at full power, working on both 0.62 and 0.63 updates.
      For 0.62, we are preparing a full revamp of ambient sounds. New atmospheres andenvironment sounds in general, but also spatial vegetation or structure sounds. We are utilizing the potential of our new sound system, so it's not just new samples, but a true, complete overhaul: new ambient sounds for forests, coast side, fields but also cities and villages are all in the making. 
      The infamous, annoying random sounds of fence screeching are gone, and audio will also follow weather dynamically and in more detail, ultimately meaning new wind, thunder and rain sound effects will be added to DayZ. In general, roaming the countryside of Chernarus will be a much more pleasant experience to your ears.
      At the same time, part of our audio team is working on the 0.63 update, where we will introduce new user actions sounds, weapon reload sounds and basically all audio connected to the player character. 0.63 will also bring new vehicle sounds through our redesigned audio system, so driving will sound more natural and responsive to engine behavior.
      That's all from audio department now, we will share some more before the update drops!

      DayZ Forums News
      During the past week, the DayZ forums have gone under a short (but long overdue) maintenance. The new software update to the forums, deployed by our Web Team on Wednesday introduced some neat improvements to the design template, but more importantly, it significantly increased the loading times of the forums and their overall security. 
      We've also re-introduced the "give beans" feature that all veteran forum users surely remember from past - much to everyone's delight, too, as from what we've seen, the flow of beans has been pretty steady on the forums since the update happened! 
      We'd like to continue with general improvements to the forums, and eventually also start looking at improvements to the DayZ.com website design and usability. While we're well aware of some critical issues that make the DayZ website less intuitive (and outdated), we'd definitely love to hear what you think would make you interact with our website more often - please share your thoughts with us in the topic linked below!

      Community Spotlight
      Over the last weekend, me and Creative Director Brian Hicks were participating on an event called "The Hunting Season" organized by DayZ Underground server team. It was a large hunting event and to win you had to be the group with the most pieces of steak and hide. Groups could hunt each other during the event, but human meat did not count towards the victory. You could have met Survivors from all around the world as well as well-known streamers like M1NDR, MarkstromTV or Moondye7. The entire event was very exciting and hunters wiped out almost every deer in Chernarus. I have never seen more steaks at one place. Brian Hicks and MarkstromTV were the winners, congratulations! There were more competitions at the end - bow shooting and the best dressed participant of the event. We sat by the fire playing musical instruments and roasted meat. Do you know any better way to spend a Saturday night?

      Tourettesmexchanic and his friends were showing off their DayZ inspired weapons collection on Reddit. And it is a truly fabulous one! It has almost everything, including camouflaged Mosin, Repeater and accessories like Tactical Bacon or protector case. These Survivors are ready for an apocalypse and nothing will surprise them!
