DayZ
Anyone playing this?

its basically a Zombie/Survival MOD for the game ARMA 2: combined forces.

its become really popular due to the extent of how strapped you are for supplies and the need to survive.

http://dayzmod.com/?About

you have 1 life, if you die you respawn with nothing.

there is PVP too, 50 people in a server though the map is 15km2 so its pretty damn big (bigger than fallout maps to give an idea).

will probably get this soon and start playing. looks fun.

I was going to but everyone just kills each other on sight now, instead of surviving together against the zombies. Fuck that.

No point playing it atm.

Because it is still in alpha stage hackers have completely destroyed the game.

But if you want to play it, sure, give it a go (you will get spine fucked by hackers).


edit: have been following threads on the game

I'm impressed you worked out how to install an alpha mod jarrard

I'm keen to give it a go but it seems a bit fucked at the moment with people duping weapons and just general PvP, I want more of the survival experience.

Once it's past alpha and beta stages they eventually plan to release Day Z as a stand alone game.

With a good group of like minded survivalists, I would play this to death when a better version is out. ITM posse?

i came across a random noob in electrostein town whatever its called and we stuck together for a while.

i.e. i waited for the zombies to chase him off and i ran and grabbed a gun and went back hiding. we did keep communicating and working together though. was going well until my ping randomly spiked to 400ms for like a second and i got booted from the server losing all my shit

Bled out after getting infected, died at the base of a deer stand (only safe cover near), reloaded and ran to my body, it was now in the deer stand, looted my corpse and apparently the zombie who attacked me earlier placed a AK in my pack.

Gotta love alpha's.

What server you play on jrod? I tend to play on the us based AU servers (makes sense right) as ping doesn't really affect this game, also, less players.

yeah AU/NZ ones are always full

i've just been trying out alot of emptier ones lately to try to find ones that load quickly enough.

at the moment DE 564 is on the list as a good server.

also trying to find ones that are day time whilst i play at night.

Crawled from Balota to Cherno with a broken leg and only a axe to defend myself.. now hiding it out near the hospital needing a blood transfusion.

Man this game is fun (the crawling wasn't), it's like a create-your-adventure book but BETTER

i'm heading north west at the moment with a mate.

got a CZ 550 sniper, which i didnt change it now

i had an 870 remington with a flashlight attachment which would 1 shot kill zombies.

the sniper, sure its 1 shot kill, but its scope magnifies massively so its really only good for PVP, kinda pointless if a zombie is chasing you. and my M9 pistol is weak as shit.

so hoping to find a better weapon now...

spawn, crouch run, stay away from zombies, find gun, find food, find liquid, find meds, travel, shoot people and zombies etc.

strong learning curve and its tough at the beginning.

Heard it's getting a full PC release. Confirm?

e: Is there ANY WAY you can get this without buying ARMA 2?? Looks so good.

Yeah, truth. But would you rather save $25 if it were possible?

Found a czech pack, CZ550, M1911, NVG, map/bino's/watch/matches/ammo/food etc etc

Anyway, got frisky with all my goodies and headed down to cherno to have fun with new spawns at night time (if you don't have NVG's or a torch you can't see shit), scaring them over direct comms. Was good fun for an hour then one survivor got serious with a flash light and flashed it in my general direction, the vision of me spooked him and he bailed, he also alerted a zombie behind me.. dead.

Respawned and ran for 10 minutes back to my corpse.. All my loot was still there, fuck this, I'm heading north.

Heard so many hilarious stories... people seeking help on comms, getting mad trolled... One friend said he was told on comms to climb a nearby tower as the guy he was talking to, was up there camping, and he had food up there... my friend goes in the building, up the stairs, and there is no one up there... Headshot from a sniper in another building, who went and grabbed his loot.

Rough.

TRUST NO ONE

I wasn't down at the noob spawn killing, just for laughs as spawn start out with basic medical gear and no defense, far as I go is knee capping and they can easily bandage themselves. Further north if they don't respond to comms to go away, its kill confirmed as because if a unarmed player is way far north (no gear up north is a death sentence anyway) there is usually a spotter with a rifle.

Because of the influx of players, its become a deathmatch and if you see another survivor its hide/shoot/run, yelling out "friendly" basically paints a target on your head for most players.

First time playing. Spawn on a beach in the middle of the night. No idea where to go. See the silhouette of a house and start walking towards it, hear some creepy zombie sounds and go back to beach. Head along the beach and see a fire, head to the fire and start poking around, only to be surrounded by zombies. Run off into the dark with the sounds of zombies bearing down on me. Somehow lose zombies, still have no weapons, hiding in a corner in the dark.

Log off. Too much for my old ticker.

Might try again when its daylight.

To play in the dark raise your gamma and brightness, everything will be in black an white and that's if you are lucky to have the moon out.

Daylight is kinda worse for heading into towns for gear, more zombies can get aggro and other survivors can spot you from a fair distance, only benefit is not having jerks in NVGs trolling you.
