So we can get some sort of group going.

Post here if you play, what you're doing, and if you're looking for friends.

I'm usually up to play whenever, just ping me on IRC.

I've wanted to play for a while, but $30 is too much for a game with such mixed reviews

Oh god, DayZ.

Bear in mind, this is all based on my experience with older versions. I don't know if 1.7 is any better.

It got much better.

>zombies have better hearing and viewing cones
>food and water run out faster
>can't fill up canteens at certain water sources, because the water is 'undrinkable' (but looks indistinguishable from any other water), so when you are dying of thirst and see a water hole in the distance -- good luck
>at 50% gamma level, the nights are pitch black with a 3 foot sight radius. You literally cannot see the ground below you,because it
s 5 foot away.

But I think the last patch changed a lot again and reversed some things.

I hate to use the excuse that has so far been used for every problem, but remember, the mod is in alpha right now. It's not perfect. And what I hear, it's more fun if you play with a group of friends and don't expect to live very long than if you go solo and take it seriously.

>but remember, the mod is in alpha right now.

That is exactly WHY people should be voicing their specific complaints at every opportunity.

A game being in Alpha/Beta isn't just 'this is why it is okay for my game to be bad.' It's a point where you are testing shit to refine it and make it good. Feedback is a significant part of that process.

I'm not saying people shouldn't voice their complaints, I'm just saying no one should let the bugs put them off the game because it's finished. Check out CHKilroy's "The Days Ahead" series on youtube. Some of the funniest parts are caused by bugs, you just gotta roll with it.

Rocket is incapable of fixing the game other than adding artificial difficulty for the sake of "LOL DEAL WITH IT"

<Trout>well that was a good run
<Trout>Ave and I did pretty well for ourselves this time
<Trout> I had a kickass gun and lots of supplies, he had... an axe
PuddOmegahe won?
<Trout>We didn't fight, we both went back to a barn to pick up some guns
<Trout>When an Indian man talking to himself on the mic killed both of us
<PuddOmega> haha

<Trout> aaaaaaaaaa I can't
<DayZGaruda> I spawned, walked a bit, got shot, fell off a bridge and broke my legs, then died

Seriously though guys, we're getting a pretty good team going here. We usually play on US 858. So far it's myself, Ralith, Kasaron, Trout, and Blaank.

Anyway, here's a video of awesome things to do in DayZ regardless of the lack of specific goals.

I'm running this on a PowerBook from 2006 with Bootcamp. I mean, the settings are all the way down and I get small freeze ups rarely when it's hot, but it works. Just try it.
