DayZ - ArmaII zombie mod

We had some fun with AS50s tonight, took out a vehicle or 2 and around 5 players at southern airfield on VigilantAddiction lingor.

I got killed on login again.
I went to a zero population server. Logged in, there was a player listed.
I figured someone logged in at the same time as me, and it just didn't refresh into DZC.
Killed on login, debug plains, respawn with no starting gear.
I logged all of the way out and back in hoping to fix it. On logout, I noticed that there was still no server population in DZC. On the way back in, still a player listed on the server's screen.
I know I should have logged into a different server instead.

Is this a hacker thing, or a couple of coincident bugs?

Just had the same thing happen to me. I logged in, death message, debug. Logged back into another server with no gear or pack but still wearing the camo skin.
I have had a similar situation when after getting the debug kill I log into a different server, spawn on the coast but with all my stuff.
Personally I'd say it's bugs rather than hacks.

Tried Lingor.
I like being able to enter buildings, but much of the same experience.
Probably because I loose patience and get careless after slogging through the woods for twenty minutes.

I can't seem to get past the mid quality weapons stage. Seems like as soon as I get well equipped enough to start thinking about going after snipers, I end up getting killed.

Got picked off just as I passed the top floor level of the castle in San Arulco. I presume the guy was sniping over the town, and got me as my head cleared the floor.

Lingor seems like the hacker, teenager playground now. Every server I was on had people using voice in the main channel, and dirt-bags sh*t talking in the main chat.
I never got any of that on Chernarus.

I think I'm done with DayZ for a while.

I had a blast on a 27/50 Lingor server. Pretty darn crowded for my tastes, but gave it a shot.

It was a fresh start for me there, so started with nothing. I made it to a cluster of 3 of those "bunk shacks", and started looting. M4A1 with 3 mags . Made it to the 2nd building, couple more general-purpose items and... what's this? Through the door at the other end of the shack I see a survivor's body maybe 80m away and consider checking him for loot. I see he's only got the starter-pack and figure he probably doesn't have much worth the risk, but while I'm looking that way, I see a survivor sprinting in my general direction. "Sorry bud, but this loot be mine." I put a few rounds into him and he goes down. I didn't see the "Player was killed" message so I start to take aim at him just as he's starting to get up again, 1 more shot and he's dead. As I get close to the exit to line up to make a run to the next hut: I'm taking fire! I back deeper into the hut, bandage my gushing wounds and get my M4 ready just as the "bandit" steps into the doorway. We trade some lead. I'm down, but I die with a smile as I get the satisfaction of seeing him die before my whole world goes black.

After I respawn, I'm fairly close to, what looks like, a small military outpost at the top of a hill, overlooking a small town. I used a couple of the town's homes as cover (and looking for anything useful) as I make my way to the outpost. Sneak my way into the compound and am rewarded with an MP5 and a couple mags. I had to log out there, though.

I was not finding that loot.
I read a chat line that said "I've raided every military drop in Lingor, now what?"
I thought, "like, you mean, since you started playing, or just now?" Made me think hacker.
I was in the race track tower (which is creative use of models) and some guy came right up behind me. Never saw him on the way in, but he was just standing there full upright.
I can't imagine how he came in so immediately behind me, as soon as I hit the top floor without me hearing something. He would have had to be right on my heels all the way up.

I haven't seen that in Chernarus for about a week, so I'm grateful to Lingor for drawing a lot of them off.

I could help you re-gear on Chenarus if you want help with that. Shouldn't take too long with a chopper at our disposal.

Don't have a chopper on Lingor yet, but I want to make that my next project, ideally on one of Vilayer mini-hives.

New blog post about how development of the standalone is going.

I took a bit at the end of the day today. Spawned in Calamar.
Already have and M16A4, GPS, Mac, knife, Map, Two tents.... It's like shopping.
It's an end of season blowout on Alice packs and hatchets.

How did you get a PBX up there?

I found it there, empty of gas. I assumed someone had hacked it in.

That seems logical.

By the way, is anyone near Drassen in the SW corner of Lingor? I managed to break my leg while looking for car parts and am kilometers from the nearest hospital.

Edit: Nevermind, I found some morphine at the fire station through a stroke of luck! Phew.

I thought Tents were fixed?

I planted a new tent two days ago, filled it with kit, 100% definitely saved it, then yesterday I went back and it was completely empty.

I highly doubt it was raided and emptied, as I had my Ural Truck nearby (a HUGE BLUE BEACON), which couldn't be missed, and that was still fine, and also still full of the gear it was carrying...

Sad times.

On a side note, why does my truck have to be BLUE! I need to find some green paint..

Depending on where you found it, there is a boat showing up on the DayZdb map, and there's even a comment of "Don't ask me how a boat got here."

How can we tell if a Lingor server is on a private hive (I mean besides the ones tagged private hive)?

Occasionally I log into a lingor server and it prompts me to choose male or female for a new toon; however, I can still find my real one on another server, or the last server I was on.

How do I sort it out so that I can have the every server kind of setup like Chernarus.

Every lingor server should have it's own private hive. Part of the nature of the beast. Unless some individual has managed to hook several together to a hive of their own.

I have yet to find one that doesn't have it's own individual hive...which is awesome...no ghosting or server hop shopping. And territory is more meaningful.

Several of us are now playing on the password protected private Lingor hive by servers.vigilantaddiction.com

Easy to apply for access..super easy...but definitely controls access at the same time. It's only a couple days into a newly wiped and now password protected status so pretty cool.

I have an UAZ and 1 tent now setup as of this morning. UAZ has fully repaired fuel tank and is full of fuel but needs all other parts to fix low rated repair status parts.

Will give locs on vent later to those who are signed up on that server.

Had a pretty fruitful night of solo work, without even hitting the prison or NW airfield. At one point in the night I was down to 3k blood before and had my food meter blinking for quite sometime before I found a can of food. I then slowly ate can after can until I was back up to 10k, eventually found a boar to top me off at 12k.

Worked my way from the Research Center on the Northwest island down to San Arulco in a very wound about way searching for a pack bigger then the starter, camo and a map. Found all but the camo and then made my way up to Dutch Castle planning to hit the military barracks there for another weapon other than the AKM. Crested the top of the hill and in the court yard of the castle I find a helo, which needed main rotor, engine parts and gas. I also spot a UAZ parked in the corner behind the castle wall, run over to it and it is in perfect condition, and has 3/4 of tank gas to boot.

Before taking off in the UAZ I head up the castle tower to check for more food as I still hadn't gotten all the way up to max. While at the top I hear the engine of another vehicle and soon a tractor pulls up and parks. The other survivor jumps out and runs over to the Helo, sits in it for a few minutes and then pops out and runs back to his tractor. I can't get an angle to shoot down with the mini wall running around the edge of the tower and he is running around to close to the base. He just sits in the tractor for a couple minutes so I decide to head down to see If I can catch him napping at the wheel. I get down and he starts to move but thankfully he just positions the tractor next to a wall to hide it and then runs across to the military camp on the adjacent hill. I move in to a better ambush position and then sit and wait for his return, and return he did. I greeted him with 27 rounds of AKM on full auto and take him down, loot the body and pick up a M-16 ACOG and magazines and a toolbox.

I stash the M-16 in the UAZ and jump in to my new wheels. I head north while checking the offline map trying to find a good spot to stash my new treasure. Get up near the prison and get off in to the weeds trying to find a good spot to park and run across a tent. I pop out run over and find just a few magazines, 5 of them FAL, and at the bottom I find NVGs All the loot was loaded to the UAZ and I continue to look for a good spot to call it a night. While crusing around the country side I came across a crashed helo and picked up a Bizon to cap the night off.

I highly doubt the helo will be there tomorrow night, but I intend to check and try to get it operational if possible. If both our UAZ's survive the night Fuzz we can use mine to run around and collect parts for yours and stock pile helo parts as well.

Nice. My evening went well. After struggling to get into DayZ at all >:( "You cannot play/edit this mission because it needs files that were deleted.blahblah" (trying to get in through DayZCommander), and then getting "You were kicked from the server" message right at log-in when just going through my Lingor.bat file. After, what felt like, 2hrs or updating/reinstalling the mods (I don't think any of this helped), I was finally able to get back in via the my Lingor.bat (re-editting the command-line seems to have been the only "fix").

I found a GPS in a house. It seems that if you don't already have a map, the GPS has one built-in. I did find a map shortly after though. I too found a crashed helo in a (in my mind) pretty risky position near the top of a fairly high hill... very exposed. I made my way to it as stealthily as possible. First side: nothing. Far side (the more exposed side) had only an FN FAL (no ammo) and a few "junk ammo" (smoke grenades), as far as weapons go, but as I was crawling away I noticed paper-wrapped package tied with string. A present? For me? Aww, you shouldn't have . I was only a little disappointed to find out that it was just the cammo, and not the ghille.

So all-in-all, not bad. My 1st ever cammo (on Lingor, and NEVER had a ghille), GPS, and entrenching tool.

I highly doubt the helo will be there tomorrow night, but I intend to check and try to get it operational if possible. If both our UAZ's survive the night Fuzz we can use mine to run around and collect parts for yours and stock pile helo parts as well.

If you get the chopper flying, don't park it on the NW island in the middle of nowhere. I believe it's a debug zone and vehicles or tents parked there will be erased.

Also, there is a bug that transforms vehicles into other vehicles. On multiple occasions after a server restart, we've returned to our helicopter only to find a tractor in it's place. Not sure if this is fixed in patch 2.6.

I see that the latest DayZCommander now has Lingor AND Takistan as install options - wonder how many unofficial maps we're going to end up with!?

I've seen some vids for Utes as well.

Someone has been working on porting DayZ to Taviana as well:

Keep getting kicked. Can't tell why. I do get the 3d cfg error on starting.
I've been killed on login once, killed by zombies once, and except for a box of matches and a compass, I'm back up to nearly functional team member again.
Might hit vent this weekend.

Are you getting kicked for signature file not matching errors? This seems to be happening to me for some reason.

Had a pretty successful night today. I lost all my gear to the debug plains last night, but I managed to gear up again with Redhawk's help. I collected a bunch of car parts and stashed them in his UAZ, then we lucked out and found another car. Not sure if it was a fresh spawn or if it had been disabled in a firefight, but it wasn't on at a spawn location marked on http://map.dayzlingor.de/

At one point, we heard the chopper flying over us, so unless there is more than one chopper like on Takistan, some other guys have beat us to it. In any case, I managed to repair the other vehicle and also figured out a nifty anti-theft measure for it as well.

I've been thinking more about gear storage lately. For now, I keep spare guns in the tents, but all the spare ammo goes in the car or distant tent. I'm hoping this will reduce the incentive to for people to steal guns, particularly guns which use rare ammo. Also, it could prevent other players from looting your car while you are gathering supplies and using your own guns against you.

Also, I wonder if this was the guy you killed. And it seems the VA guys have a Teamspeak. Maybe we can get in on that if it and work out an arrangement with them.

Have you tried remaking your ".bat" file? Wait, we are talking about Lingor right? I was geting nowhere until I remade the command-line in my .bat (got it off a site I now have bookmarked). Bug me if you see me on Vent (even if I'm not in the DayZ channel).
