༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ  0.62 


Hello guys,

Today is THE DAY(Z) and we are pushing out the major 0.62 update do Experimental branch.

What is new:

  • New tree models
  • Denser forests
  • New clutter (grass, small plants)
  • New surface textures - plains and such
  • Improved wind behavior
  • New shader for the wind, affecting trees and grass
  • Tweaked and changed lighting for the world
  • Small improvements to satellite textures
  • Rain affected by wind and refinement of its behavior in general
  • Many reworked locations on Chernarus
  • Reworked ghillie (to be consistent with new tech)
  • Small bugfixes to some issues from 0.61
  • New ambient sounds

This is the first public version on unstable servers, it can contain new bugs and crashes. If you find some bugs/crashes let me know on our Feedback Tracker, we need to know about it. You can help us to solve game crash issues.Thank you! 

If you run into any problems with camera (movement of camera, zooming), delete your profile in documents (C:\Users\yourPCname\Documents\DayZ).


While you'll be waiting for the update to download, I also have the first part of our new Q&A video for you. This time with Adam Franců, amazing map designer! He will give you some new information and answer your questions from Twitter, Forum and Reddit.


And the last news. If you are active content creator you can join our white-listed Content Creator server.

As a small appreciation of our community of live streamers, YouTubers and other content creators, we're launching a passworded, whitelisted server for the 0.62 Experimental update where you can get a look at the new visual improvements in 0.62 without waiting in the Experimental server queue.

Everyone with an active channel on both YouTube and Twitch will be granted access on a "first to come, first to serve" basis, as we'd like to have both familiar names and small content creators on the list!

The server has 60 slots, and we'll be whitelisting 70 of you for now (to allow for a bit of an overflow during less frequented hours), with the important factor for whitelisting being that we're able to tell your channel is active. In short, that means you had at least one DayZ video uploaded over the past month, or streamed any game at least once during the past 7 days.

Occasionally, we may also have developers join the server, which may take up to additional 5 slots on the list, but we'll try to stay out during busy hours.

Apply here: https://goo.gl/forms/9Exb5VUwS9LN0Zna2

We'll let you know if you've been selected by email. The form will be closed after filling the capacity.

Where the hell is 0.63? We've been waiting for literally 11 minutes. Lazy scam devs!

Seriously though, I might give 0.62 a whirl tonight if I can get on. The creator whitelist idea is neat - perfect for pure testing as well. Keen to see the new changes.

      Hello Survivors,
      as expected there's still a number of issues popping up with the current BETA build. First and foremost we want to resolve the persistence issues, that are sometimes appearing. So especially for server owners, try to work with regular persistence backups and if you encounter persistence wipes, report with your server dumps and persistence files to our Feedback Tracker.
      This Experimental patch includes:
      Fixed: server crash tied to cooking Fixed: issue which allowed for magazines to become stuck in hands/weapons and disable them Fixed: fixes in inventory Fixed: general map fixes and tweaks Fixed: turning when heavily injured Fixed: loot spawning underground in castles Fixed: stability while giving blood TWEAKED
      Tweaked: character voice samples Tweaked: rain and wind ambient Tweaked: distance visibility of fire ADDED
      Added: Audio for going through bushes KNOWN ISSUES
      guns can lose their shot-sounds for the player who uses it. Relog fixes this problem.

      Which branch are we suppose to be testing?  I'm pretty certain I read that the experimental and stress test branches were going to be deprecated or something along those lines and that they will be focusing on the stable "beta" branch until those will be needed again?
