DayZ Zombie RPG (Unofficial Mod) Alpha

Recommended Posts

1.5 is released, all the servers transferred to 1.5, but Six Updater don't seem to have it up yet. And seeing the Dayzmod.com website download link is hosting stuff that i don't identify with the full mod. It seems i have to wait till six updater has got the latest version.

It's up now, if notify @ http://www.six-updater.net/p/support.html I should be able to respond more quickly.

Also several EU mirrors added: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?118605-Six-Updater-Install-Update-mods-missions-Delta-patching-Server-browser-and-more!&p=2141800#post2141800

Tip...NEVER go back to chernogorsk or Elekro Area once you got out...every good Zombie Plan is about gettign the hell out of cities simply because of Zombies and Freaks that kill for Baked Beans....you probably got shoot for showing your new gear.

Yeah, go to more sparsely populated areas, way safer.

Ok tonight I bumbed into a horde of Z's and had no ammo, 1 flare (which went out seconds afterwards) and it was dark. I decided to run. After about 15 minutes of running, they were still behind me - I decided to disconnect as I don't want to lose my map and compass.

My question is - would I have ever out run the zombies? If not, what does one do in such a situation other than disconnect, surrender and die, or just keep running until morning (as of yet I haven't figured out how long the day/night cycle is) when I can find some stairs to climb.

Your best bet is to run into a house, preferably with stairs. The zombies will have to WALK up the stairs, making them an easy target. Also, if you can make it to a pier, they will walk once they get to the asphalt.

Best piece of advice I can give, is to always keep an eye out for a 'safe-house', or somewhere you can run to if you get a horde/PvPer.

Yes it should be that way but yesterday the local time and server tiem did not fit...we had to play in the night on Euro servers despite it was already 14:00PM CET and dawn should have been at 5:45 CET.

No, you can't outrun zombies. Thats the point, if you could they would not be dangerous. Your only chance is to enter a building to have your back covered and make a stand there. Btw something should be done with gettig rid of zombies by disconnecting....thats a lame exploit.

It's the 'making a stand' thing I was having a problem with - no ammo! I guess the only thing I could have done was keep running until someone else shot them for me - probably an unlikely scenario. Regarding the disconecting, I thought the whole idea of the game was to do anything necessary to survive! I don't feel bad about it anyway as it doesn't hurt anyone else (other than perhaps the toe-rag looting my cold dead body).

Are we sure that server time is game time? If you only ever get the time to play at night then you would only ever see the night - that doesn't seem right somehow. I supose people may develop specialist skills based on whether they are nocturnal or not.

To be honest, If I see you gettign chased by a horde coming MY way I shoot you so the zombies are stopping to EAT YOU not me. But in case Im with my team the situation is another one in that case we have easily the firepower to get rid of a horde...exspect to be asked for some kind of compensation for our expenses (ammo, morhine, painkiller and baked beans are accepted)...because ammo is rare and we don't like it to waste it for others.

Try to run perpendicular when the shooting starts to not get caught in the crossfire.

Regarding daytime in game...was no problem until yesterday when all servers where out of sync...when you had night in the US you simply went to a EU or russian server and vice versa. Im indeed specialized in night playstyle because at night the sniper pest is without teethad the servr is rather empty...that's the time to go to cities for medical supplies that are hard to find in the wilderness...and zombies are totally blind at night...you can silently sneak aroud them at 5m distance and you're safe...until a noob comes runnign in with flares and shooting all that moves. Btw I use NVGs at night ;)

Well currently the game is near impossible to play in it's full potential without working direct VOIP on most servers.

Maybe it is part of the experiment to disable/handicap the direct communication VON :-/

Tried from SU? Apart from a real first glitch last night https://dev-heaven.net/issues/30738#change-132716, the many mirrors world wide should serve you well.

OK this Mod sounded so much fun I reinstalled Arma/OA just to try this bad boy out.

Updated the dayz to the appropriate patch number, hit the multiplayer and loads up the game and press OK.

You were kicked from the game.

No other messages or any indication why I'm being kicked from the game. Arrgghh everyone's having so much fun killing Z's I want too aswell.

Any Idea's why or some magical ointment to rub on arma to make it work?

Using Arma CO the dreaded steam version with 1.60 etc etc.

Thanks

Make sure you have battleeye installed. Right click on the game in your steam library, and hit the "reinstall battleye client"

Im getting an animation error in Day Z. The zombies only have a running animation. when they stop/die/attack me they look like they have clipped into the ground up to their waste with their arms out to the side. It is also happening when I play ARMA 2 w/o the mod running sometimes. It seems like an error in the game not the mod but figured I'd post it here to see if I could get help.

Congrats on making such a popular mission. I have yet to try it, I will soon. Sounds very interesting.

There are over 1000 people playing Arma right now and approx 700 are playing this mission. Impressive stuff! I don't think I have ever seen so many people playing Arma.

Thank you for the Mod

i really died a hard stupid death. need to gain some will and energy to come back - all i had is lost (full set of everything plenty of mags, food and drinks..)..

(was too greedy had no bandage with me.. or I had one, but I used it on a stranger and bled to death myself - he had none - i gave it to him cause i thought nothing will happen to me: home was just 1000ft away..

but hen it happened: a usual zombie attack occured on our way. the result:exactly when I was at my tent I died. I literally pressed the button and Died. I was only seconds too late)

i hope the stranger still lives. when I noticed I am bleeding I just ran.

there could be some greater goals to achieve that count aswell. not only the single life and the inventory, which is all gone when you die (i know about tents).

lets say we can conquer a city, must deploy sand crates and light so zombies wont spawn or sth. must protect against bandits... trade hub!

in order to hold the city some persons must watch the guard line etc. refill lanterns whatever, so you never know what awaits when approaching that what was once safe place when you left a day ago - because someone forget to administer the city stuff, or the city got raped by bandits. Could be aswell a hidden info which city is safe and only communicated to strangers when a city member trusts him.

to sacrifice the life for such a greater goal is not so bad.. you stil think it was worth it to start all over again.

then again, that hardcore feeling non forgiving scenario is the good thing what brought us here in the first place - so dont change too much, no kitty online wanted ^^.. wouldnt it just be so bad when you die lol ;)#

such a powerful great mod with great potential. and that out of a great war simulator. I salute you.

I was being sneaky going through a construction yard in the middle of no where, went in one of the those big concrete sheds, closed the door, and than it squashed me against the wall, i bled out, and suddenly a zombie out of nowhere came running for me bashing me, i shot him with a bolt, but i kept on shaking after healing up, i need a blood transfusion... :( And than the server had to be restarted and i could not get in any other server anymore, all full or not responding.
