New trees, thicker forest, better grass and ground textures plus some actual ground with cracks and bumps. Wind effects are a mile above the crappy grass and tree loop animation that has been in the dayzmod and standalone for years. Very fluid gameplay all round we had zero lag or desync but a few crashes over about three hours. Game looks really great, the shots are not as nice as it is in game, they don't have the crispness and some shots i had to brighten as for some reason Dayz screenies always come out dark. The new ambient sounds, birds, bugs, crickets etc have killed the emptiness of the forests although the crickets at night start to get a bit much. Combined with the renderer the game is really starting to shine, player controller and all new animations and fluidity to come in .63 which is where the main effort is now.
Did you jump in for a look? I have just been enjoying the forest again, my partner is happy just exploring and pointing out every nice tree, and flower, and blade of grass, and sky..:D She gets up me because i bee line it to loot mil areas and she ends up stuffing around looking at stuff and losing me. The sounds and graphical update were really needed, much nicer. I love the transiton from the green grassy forests to the more sun deprived woods.
The dead wood areas are awesome as well.
Rain and no rain.
The mood of the map depending on time of day and location is also great.
My partner popping a few shots off up the back of the map.
Those shots are everything maxed on my old system, my lad has a GTX1080 (thanks Dad) and in 4k it looks absolutely beautiful on his rig.
sup mars. look me up on steam if you ever wanna play again. I also got into playerunknown's battlegrounds too. It's got the scavenging and PVP side of dayz to it but much faster. Dayz is like 95% buildup and 5% action, PUBG is about 20% buildup and 80% action. I feel like strong squad tactics from Arma would play well there.
Heya moose ,i will look you up this next weekend and see how the arma winds are blowing :} Just got arma3 and i am adding quite the list of cool stuff . Whats the hot mod these days for arma ? Got the epoch one and looked at a few more but i am out of the loop for sure !
I have watched frankie and jack doing the battlegrounds game on you tube and i would think any team with me on would suffer , LOL
