Last time I played (couple of weeks ago) the Zs still posed no threat at all, which is my main problem with the game right now. I do see the improvements compared to the mod version but progress is certainly much slower that I had imagined.

Not lately, waiting for 0.53 to hit stable.

SO I have been playing a lot of arma 3, chernarus wasteland, it is pretty intense, no zombies etc lots of group based PVP which is great if you use teamspeak!

http://forums.arma.su

They have their own launcher etc so it is pretty neat.

Same guy who coded it did King of the Hill which recently won an award!

The mod is currently broken but will be fixed within a week or so...

And hi Falstar how are you?

I load up DayZ now and again but can't say I care too much for the state of the game. Prefer to Play 'The Forest' instead.

I still load it up every month or so just to see the state of the game and hows its improving. Eventually I think it will be great buts it going to take a long time to get there.

I wonder what Rocket is up to these days wish he was still involved with the development.


I've got a bad feeling about this.....

ii heard they just wiped characters again, figures after 6 weeks of running around the map and i FINALLY found a MP5, lol.

they also removed even more Mil-Gear Spawns...... Couple that with persistence and clans hiding items and camping them... eeeehh

Stayed away from DayZ for more than a month.
Tried 0.56 Experimental out of curiosity on Saturday and starved twice out of 3 games. Absolutely impossible to find anything to eat, a weapon of some sorts or a darn fishing hook for that matter.

On my 3rd try, night time, starving again.
I saw a truck heading my way from far away. Turned my flashlight on and stood in the middle of the road in my fresh spawn attire.
The fellow stopped in front of me, got off, said hello and shot me dead.

Cheers,
Slug

I.m skipping .56 and waiting for the next update..although i really should try it while the zeds are out as i have always found issues with desync, lag spikes, massive frame drops etc with zeds more than anything else in the game.

As for Dean, the dude imo is a pretty genuine stand up chap, sure he has made some mistakes and what not but i don't think he has ever come across as some big ego type at all. Had a few yaks with him in Alpha testing and the guy at heart is just a gamer with a ton of ideas he is constantly throwing around. He has always said he made the original mod off the back of a lot of other peoples work.

I tried a lot of the other zombie mods with Arma and besides Namalsk, they were all pretty crap and extremely unpolished and seemingly unfinished or just quickly slapped together. Dayz even in the beginning when it was pretty light on was a totally different gaming experience and something that brought me back to gaming as there just wasn't anything out there like it despite the plethora of zombie/survival type games.

That all being said, the SA has somehow failed atm to capture the spirit of the mod, maybe the clunkyness of the Arma engine and the ui plus the background music (down low) all had something to do with it. You just never could really take it too seriously but then still managed to find yourself in just these intense moments with your heart pounding. Good times.

Yeah I agree with your sentiment about Rocket he's always seemed like a good guy that is really passionate about what he does, and my comment was genuine in wondering what hes up to. I really miss his involvement in DAYZ and personally I think thats a big reason for the lack of direction the game has ATM.

Aside from all that I think they'll eventually get it right.

My problem with the SA is that progress is just so daaaaamn slow...

It's been out now for 1.5 years and it still is seriously lacking in content compared to the mod. I know that a lot of work is done 'under the hood' that isn't very noticeable to me as a player, but... it just takes soooo loooooong....

I often wonder if they are still relevant. They don't seem to have any direction as to what they are doing, where they are heading and when. After so long, the game is still a mess. It is nothing I want to play without feeling like I am playing a broken early Alpha...and it seemed to perpetually stuck in early Alpha. I'll be surprised if they haven't already lost a significant portion of devotees.

There are games like 7 Days and now even a resurgent Rust that are forging ahead and I am not sure you can use 'forging ahead' to describe the SA.

7GB? i think DayZ is. Takes longer to load than my 120+GB FSX install.

On break until they put more food in. To lazy to hunt etc right now.

Just tried the latest experimental build and actually enjoyed the game quite a bit. That was, until some guy gunned me down while I was unarmed, with my hand raised to greet him. I know that kill-on-sight will always be a part of DayZ but such needless kills are sooo annoying.

The zombies are smarter now and the run inside buildings! Lots of things have changed and it's a little harder now, but I love it!

Can they still run or walk through objects like the racking in the back of stores or the counter etc?

I don't know, haven't been in that situation yet. I just ran into a tent and they ran inside after me, which they didn't do that 8+ months ago.

There's a classic arma 2 dayz mod server, it's brilliant BUT they got rid of "tent bases" and allowed structures and limited the number of weapons, so the biggest clan has all the weapons in the game in their hardened walled bases. Fun for them fun for no one else.
