DayZ - ArmaII zombie mod

Communism 1.0 was a huge letdown. I hope Comm Sim 2.0 is better.

This is a survival game after all...

Either that's my point, or we have divergent ideas of survival.

Individual survival, or human survival?

The tension in the walking dead universe, when they meet survivors they don't know they can trust like the pub scene in the farm season, that is something with is really effective in this game. I've met an random survivor, who kind of surprised me. It turned out he didn't shoot me. The adrenaline rush, followed by the next few seconds of Mexican stand-off, followed by some sort of comradare was an excellent experience.

Kill everyone creates tension but no uncertainty, which limits reward.

Man, so tired of tents eating my gear.
SVD and 10x mags
M240 and 3x box mags
Those two were my fault, forgot to save fuzz's tent.

Set a new tent of my own, definitely saved this time.
L85A2 + Mags
DMR + Mags (thankfully one popped back into fuzz's tent)
M4 AIM SD + 10 SD Mags

Thankfully I found another M4 AIM SD on the next run through the prison and the 10+ SDmags were back in fuzz's tent.

I believe certain servers simply do not save tents. I know that UK226 has some persistent tents that have been able to save at least once with the 1.7.2.5 update. Spreading stuff between servers is probably the best way to find one that saves stuff.

We're playing on a lingor server with a private hive. Not sure what caused Red's tent to eat items, but i havn't had any of my items get et yet. So far my 3 tents have all seemed to work exceptionally well for myself.

So you can't really spread sh*t on multiple servers. That said, Lingor absolutely doesn't lend itself to tent cities, nor is there any need to stockpile with the spread out availbility of pretty decent gear.

Finally found my first heli crash site last night, just south-east of the NWA. Hooked me up with a Bizon and a couple of clips. Now I need to find another site to get some more ammo for it! (presuming that Bizon ammo only spawns at heli crash sites?)

I treat the Bizon and FN FAL as disposable weapons. I've never found ammo for either that didn't spawn w/ a weapon. So I have to go against my preference to horde and use them until they're empty and then drop it.

I think you're right. I'll probably just use it in situations where stealth would be best (it's not the most powerful for taking out zeds either.. I can imagine it's pretty useless in PVP) and then ditch it when I run out of ammo. Besides, I still haven't found the military backpack yet, so those 8 slots it takes up in the Alice pack could really be used for something more useful.

I watched a rabbit run into a tree and die.
I was going to take a shot, to get the meat, and thought, I'd sneak up before it ran away again. It was rather easy.
Seemed like a glitch at first, but there it was on the ground dead at the base of the tree.

M. Night Shyamalan?

To me Lingor buds:

Be "Vigilant" around 55x58 keypad 7 and 4. It's "addiction" to find so many great guns ghillies and night vision.

I weareth a SVD, AS50, Mk 48, NV, rangefinder, GPS, and ghillie atm leaving behind at least 3 of each.

The incredimap for Lingor:

http://map.dayzlingor.de/

Both my keys now have AS-50, AS50 special ammo, MK 48 w ammo belts, NV, rangefinder, GPS, ghillie.

And i'm checking out sniper perches and setting up to overwatch that camp from a distance and slaughter the miserable puppies when they come home this evening hopefully.

Hmm, I'm down to play some Lingor tonight. I've been hoarding high level weaponry on the normal hive servers lately, but don't am too worried about losing it. Hope that'll change on Lingor with easy loot availability.

With how easy it seems to be to break bones in this game, the rabbit's skeleton probably shattered on impact with the tree.

Tell me about it, I just vaulted through the floor of a house and broke my legs running through the walls.

I may or may not have ran across those coodinates you left in the other post. I also might have pretty much the same loadouts, minus the AS50 ammo. Had to run back to our tent to grab some standard M107 rounds.

So what is the low down with the AS50? Looks like it has a fixed scope zoom? I liked that the DMR had a variable. Also the rangefinder doesn't seem to be ranging any key I need to depress to get it to give me a number?

Dunno on the rangefinder.

On the AS50, and maybe the 107, i forget atm, the scope is zoomed with the numpad + and - keys. This is because breath is held with the RMB for a steady shot. Seperating zoom from hold breath allows you to shoot accurately from either scope position. This would allow you to shoot from extreme distances beyond the zeroing ability of the rifle using the mil dot markers on the unzoomed scope, but GL with that in DayZ. It's very handy for mid range or close range sniping with the AS50 though since you dont HAVE to zoom to get a steady shot.

All that said, i'm done with DAyZ, again, till at least standalone probably. Getting waaaaaaay too hacky for my blood even on Lingor. Last two days everything was fine for me in the daytime with just a few regulars on, but come later afternoon towards evening a few more folks get on an inevitably some crazy wierd sh*t happens and it's night night via hack for me....tired of it. Was lying prone in a house for 30 minutes+ during a rainstorm with abosultely no visibility to me from anywhere, and a few new people login, suddenly i hear "SMACK SMACK SMACK", like bullets hitting the house close to me, 1 at a time a second a part. I changed to a crouch position to look out and instantly took one to the face.....from further away than it was possible to hear the gun.

It's just so blatent. There's no way i can come up with to do something like that other than with a "ESP Wallhack" Odds are he had a box on me via an ESP and when i stood up, the next shot fired without even being able to actually see me just went through the window instead of hitting the wall between me and him that he probably couldn't even see...he prolly just had a box showing "hey, player here at 1500 meters" or whatever. The sad fact is, battleye will never catch those either:( Nothing can prevent those apparently, they're available all over the hacking sites on the net and people use em all the time in games like Battlefield and CoD on PC too. You can be sneaky as hell and all it takes is 1 super simple easy DLL injection to ruin your 3+ hours of work in the case of the last two days.

I tried it back in BF Bad company 2 before i quit, its easy and it works, and you can tell a ton of people are doing it when you try one sometime...if yer a doubter, try it sometime.

I've had more than enough. I'ma stick to better actual games than murder simulators and i got plenty to do with D3, LoL and coming up Borderlands 2.

It occurred to me that someone could have sniped it to mess with me, but I wasn't killed so, I doubt it.
I was in a really low value area, in the middle of the woods.

I think my next goal is to try to get my humanity up to 5k. That means I'll have to administer some first aid.
I raided a hospital and have some medical supplies.

Do you hardcore guys uses real military tactics like overwatch, and individual movement? Does this help stay alive? Is it worth learning about?

Vs normal players (non-hackers) it will often at least lead to a revenge kill, if not a first kill and save. And yes, always use if you got a group of at least 3.

I have killed a guy for the heck of it when he shot a goat in the middle of a field from the trees, alerting me to his presence, then he ran out in the middle to gut it...i left his and the goat's corpse there together....

You should check out Reddit Rescue Force.

Lots of opportunity to help people.
Load up Teamspeak 3 and their TS3 server info is on the right side column.
Good folks.

It sounds like the Vigiliant Addiction admins have been working on banning scripters, but I am not sure they are able to detect the wallhacks. Have you tried asking them about it?

For the record, I highly doubt Justified is hacking in his own gear, despite his perfect load out the other night when I killed him. Yesterday he was on and had managed to fall into the water and broke his legs and was stuck, needed help re-spawning himself where if he was hacking gear why not give yourself a morphine injector.

Because the young believe that they're invincible?

Ok that made me LOL.

What was the verdict on the "dayz_auot_updater.exe" mallicious file thing?
PC gamer reported something about a misinformed dev over reacted.

Was this a threat?
I've been getting suspicious activity notices from Apple, and Battle.net re my old WOW account.

I've changed all of my passwords.
Just wondering where all of this may be coming from.
Having to run DayZ Commander as administrator has always bugged me.

What do I need to know?

I noticed Justified seems to play a lot. I hopped on a few hours ago to check my tents, and then I checked them again just now and he's still online. So it's possible he earned his stuff legitimately.

Also, I just noticed I'm two Arma beta patches behind. Has anyone noticed any DayZ gameplay differences with the new Arma 2 beta?

It looks like the latest Arma 2 beta is 96751, however the latest version that you can update to using DayZ Commander is 96584.

I also see servers listed in DayZ Commander running weird versions of Arma 2 that aren't available such at 96585. I'm not sure if running the latest Arma 2 beta matters that much, but I am trying to figure out which version is least likely to send me to the debug plains.

Maybe it'll be simplest to accept whatever updates DayZ Commander is pushing downstream.

Dang, had some ups and downs tonight on Lingor. Not enough folks playing Vigilant so I jumped onto a Dallas server that had around 20 or so. I had been on the server earlier and had found a camp with a Bizon, then found a M24 without rounds in a military camp along with camo and all the necessary tools. Came across a fairly poorly equipped corpse other than a big coyote pack, slowly making my way north and come aross two guys working on the shoreline across a water inlet. Get read to line up a shot with the M24 and then see them jump into the water and start swimming directly towards me. I pull out the Bizon and wait at the top of a hill and try and get the jump on them, only to be distracted by a helo that came flying up not from behind me. When I turned back around they were already at the top of my little hill, split around the rock I had been trying to use for cover and nailed me. Got a few rounds into one of the guys but he didn't die.

Respawned at the closest place to my corpse ran back over and got all my gear except the M24 and Bizon. Found the compact AK and then proceeded north, along the way got in a gun fight with another survivor and came out victorious. Traded out my compact AK for the full meal deal and headed up to the military camp near Old Dutch Castle. Along the way I came across a cleared out crash site and then found another crashed flyable helo but nothing around it. Cleared out the first couple barracks then noticed what I think was a M16 Acog in the last hut but ended up getting knocked out by a lucky zombie strike and eaten.

Respawned again way down south and started for my corpse pretty much running straight to it other than a couple detours. I get there, and get my gear back, the M16 was no where to be found so I head into San Arulco. While I'm checking out buildings in the city I hear multiple big explosions back to the south over a couple hills. Head that direction and find another flyable helo down, I head over near it to see if the inventory is accessible and then have the thing blow up again with me standing right next to it. Game over, night, night.

Good shot of a lot or all the of the small pop there being hte same folks doing wall and script...i'll give it another shot for a few this week and see. But league of legends is really really tieing me up with lots of fun atm:)

also apparently arma 2 and battleye have updated again. I just logged in after update and battleye updated and then battleye sent me a notice saying "hey, we just banned over 2000 cheaters, no false positives!"
