Who is playing DayZ?

Postby ZOned Out » Fri Dec 20, 2013 11:13 pm

Wanting to get a head count before I buy the game. Played it when it was in Arma2 but wanted to see who had it already or is thinking about buying it.

I'm down, but probably won't get to play a lot till February. Hoping the game is at least in beta or released by then

I am also seriously considering this. Be nice if it got a discount during sale, but I doubt it'll happen.

I have this. So far the big changes are in the inventory...

Tab to get into it, start with only 4 inventory slots you can gain more by changing clothes i.e. Cargo pants give you 6 more inventory slots, hoodie sweatshirts give you 4, then there are tactical vests and backpacks to give you more than that. If you cant seem to target that item, just tab and there is a "Vicinity" section that you can click and drag it to your inventory.

Possibility of eating rotten food, getting sick and dying. Food and water is very hard to come by, died of dehydration/starvation twice last night. Rumors of getting sick from well water as well, may have to boil it first. Rumor also that soda relieves some thirst but may worsen dehydration which may be a hidden stat. Food and water also last through more than one use based on a percentage. i.e. you open a can of sardines and have 100% first bite takes it to 75%, then second bite to 50% and so on. Not sure if each bite relieves hunger or if you still need the whole can.

Very few zombies right now, literally ran full speed through Cherno and had may 5 zombies on me.

About 99% of buildings can be entered now, which I love. In the hours I have played I have come across one rifle and no ammo. Seems much harder to find.

Altogether I enjoyed the play, it still has a lot of work but it is DayZ. It took me about 45 minutes to get use to controls and figure out a few things but most controls are still the same. Let me know if you guys play it, I will jump on with you.

Also Steam makes joining someones server easy if they are on your friends list, just "join game" and it takes you to their server... you still have to find each other though.

This makes it sound really cool. Thanks for the write up, Zeph

I'm totally down to play even more now. But yeah, still can't actively play till February

Zeph is pretty spot on with everything he said. Finding something to drink and correct ammo for gun has been the hardest part so far.
I've been playing on not very populated servers so far, so I can learn the ropes without running into someone too often. Still I've run into a couple people and it was pretty intense. Both turned out to be cool. First one put me in restraints but didn't rob me. He said I should be able to get out by trying to move. Didn't work (maybe glitched), I had to relog to get them off.
If you go unconscious, I think you are pretty much dead. I've gone unconscious 3 times now and it just goes to a black screen. If you relog you start on a new character.
The game is fun though. Super intense at times. Im always thinking im hearing noises like something is sneaking up on me.

Night time is crazy dark. When I started the game for the first time, it was night. Not looking forward to having to go through that again lol.

Anyway, I recommend it. Its only going to get better being that it is alpha still.

I have DayZ now too. Don't know a lot about it, though. Is there a way we can all play together? Is it a single server or multiple servers? Is Genma going to rob me?

I'll probably play this. I played WarZ, but there were so many things wrong with that game. Might pick it up on payday.

We can play together but grouping is not set up yet. We would just follow each other around. If we can find each other. That's not so easy. Big ass map.
