DayZ - ArmaII zombie mod

Definitely looks interesting

I read that they changed the way clothes protect you since there are snowy areas in it as well

Is anyone going to be on in like 3 hours or so? (5 pm est)

Wanting to play but I really am sick of soloing.....no fun

I am on currently for a few hours for anyone who is interested.

Called it a night, I was able to work my way up to stary sabor for the first time tonight. Inside a large barn, I found a man that had lost the battle to zombies. After 30+ zombie kills I can say that I am the owner of an AS50 and lots of AKM ammo. Best time I have had so far, just wish I could have shared it with a buddy or something.

Getting on tonight. If anyone else plans to, let me know.

The Survivor Gamez 'happened' on Sunday. Everyone spent hours getting set up in a semi circle around some tents. They started the games once but, five minutes in, everyone red chained. They decided to try a restart and everyone was ported by admins to one spot. One player had been disposing of a grenade when the teleport happened and it went off in the crowd. Everyone had to regather. They lined up facing the tents and started the games again. Everyone yellow and red chained. People were invisible, teleporting or running on the spot. They shut the server down and went home.

Hahaha that's funny. I watched Sacriel's highlights of the stream on YouTube and it looked pretty cool, but he only had the first attempt at it. I guess it never happened lol would've been very entertaining I'm sure.

Server leaked out before hand and was DDOSed during the event.

The problem with steaming these events is that the server evetually does get out. Like the first one that Lirik won. Honestly the best way to do it might be to message all invloved and not do it live and just have them record it all. But in the end there is no way to completly keep it quite I guess.

What time do you usually play Mountaineer?

I'm usually on by 8:30 EST. I try to be on earlier, but it doesn't always work out.

I think my steam idea is the same as my forum name "SniPeZ-" go ahead and add me so we can arrange a meeting online. When I am on I am in ventrillo while im playing.

There's a whooooolllle lot of those lol

My ID is MountaineerWR27 if you want to add me; should be a little easier to find lol

I haven't been getting on Vent when I play but I think I'm going to start, that way I don't have to spam this thread every time I plan on playing lol

I sent you an invite

If anyone plays Lingor Island, I have been playing on a pretty fun private server that I found about a week ago. It spawns you in a random location on the map (none of that spawning-on-the-coast-everytime crap) and your starting inventory changes based on where you spawn (I think). In the week I have been playing, I have spawned in three competely different regions of the map and with completely different gear. The first time I spawned, I started with a CZ 550, NVG, food, water, and a few utility items (watch, compass, and map I think). I ended up dying in a sniper battle in Calamar about an hour later, but I had a lot of fun. The second time, I spawned with the usual stuff, but with 2 bandages and painkillers instead of 1. That character lasted until last night, when I got shot by a guy in a group I ran across trying to get food from an animal so I could get my blood up. Now I'm lying somewhere in the middle of the map with a crossbow, map, gps, and some other stuff I can't remember. I plan on ditching that crossbow asap but it should be interesting until then.

I'm going to start playing on the CKW servers with Redhwk in the next day or two. From what he and others have said they are a good group maybe you could jump on and play too.

Don't believe I've heard of those

Is this official release play testing, or another island release?

That map was just released today with DayZ commander. Played for a few hours today. It pretty good! Very creepy map not too mention if you go up the mountains you actually get really cold and such. Heatpacks are actually useful now! In any case its pretty fun map so far and not that gltichy too!

Thanks for the link. Do I have to be a member of the site in order to access the server?

Nope i've been on it before.

Ok I'll have to give it a shot sometime then. I'll post the Lingor Island sever I play on when I get a chance to look it up in case anyone wants to join.

IE #11 Operation Dogfight

Just got this installed and working. I can't get day-z to run unless I launch it through sixstart. Otherwise, I get some dayz_anim can't load error when I launch through Steam. Oh well.

I've died twice now. Both times sneaking around houses looking for loot, bumping into zombie, running away, and getting chased around the countryside/woods by an increasing zombie chain until I give up and let them kill me. Sigh.

Oh, can someone add me to the steam group? Stasiszv

Hey man, little tip to avoid the zombie train would be to hide in a bush after getting some distance, the zombies will drop aggro and wander back. Let me know if you are still on, you can drop me a friend request. ID = BucFan1512

Finally got Namalsk up and running and I've had a couple good sessions so far.
Really liking this map as it feels more like the first weeks of DayZ. That could just be because I have a fresh character and I'm not all twitchy about losing my hard-won gear.
Yeah, I know we're not supposed to get attached to gear/lives but I just haven't convinced my brain of that yet.
The good thing is that it seems a bit quicker to gear up on Namalsk. A least getting a weapon. Food and drinks are another story.
My first session I joined in with Magik and we attempted to converge on the northern city of Vorkuta. I was coming from the east and Magik from the west. My first deer stand hooked me up with an AKS-74U. That'll be helpful. Then the loot gods really shone down on me - a crashed helo with an Mk 48 mod 0!! This is a seriously nice gun. 100 round magazine with a scope that works equally well at close range and stretching out to medium sniper distances (400m). The one downside is it's loud. Not Lee Enfield loud, but not something you want to pop off in a crowded area.
So, with my shiny Mk48 I headed off to meet up with Magik, which is not as easy as it sounds when you don't have a compass, GPS or you've been panic-running from a zombie hoard that said shiny gun brought down on you and now have no idea where you are. Time to put those orienteering skills to use. Maybe it's cheating, but I had the DayZDB map open on another screen so I could at least check some reference points. Finally got my bearings and got to the eastern edge of Vorkuta. I decided to circle counter-clockwise around the city rather than just bomb right through the center and become the engineer on the Zed train. I've always tried to work the stealth aspect. It's better suited to my play style and aging twitch skills.
At this point I was really in need of some food. Magik was in the supermarket in Vorkuta-one of only two markets on the whole map, which makes food a pretty scarce commodity. He said there was a can of food in the market and would cover me from the school next door. Unfortunately, due to a weird bug I wasn't able to climb the stairs into the market. Not sure why, but while I was logging out and back in Magik got shot. He spawned way at the south end of the map so I was back to soloing.
I decided to abandon the market and Vorkuta and try to meet Magik midway on the map. Although without food that was going to be a challenge.
I continued my counter-clockwise circle around the town and came across another player running along some dirt mounds. Normally I will only fire if fired upon but we suspected this was the guy who killed Magik, so I wanted to avenge him.
I scoped in and put a few shots to his head and torso and he dropped. As I was making making my way over to the body I heard Magik warning me that there are sometimes..ziiipp. Headshot.
Well, that was stupid of me. Never assume just because you're solo that everyone else is too. Now somebody else has a really nice gun.
Even thought I died a stupid death and had a weird stair bug and never actually met up with Magik, it was one of the more enjoyable sessions I've had in DayZ in a while. Nicely paced with just enough loot to make it not a slog but not so easy that it isn't challenging.
Bottom line, install this map and have some fun. There's no shared hive that I noticed, so it makes server hopping pointless, which isn't a bad thing. And, knock on wood, no hacking. But we were on a low pop server. I'll definitely be spending more time in Namalsk.
My second session was even better but I'll save that for another time.

I had fun with Majik. I'll come back in if you guys are looking for a team.

I'm on the CKW Panthera server most of the time, on their TS (sometimes on the GWJ Vent too).

Probably on Monday night.

A few noob Day-z questions.

Do most houses/structures that are closed off and have doors inaccessible?

Is there a guide that describes the sound and sight ratings and how close you need to be to a zombie to aggro/attract them? I think I'm proning far too much.

Sadly in Chenaraus most building are not accesible. Although if you download a map like Panthera or Lingor I hear most of them are and there is a lot of loot.
