    What gear do you currently have? [SA Edition]

    I have absolutely bugger all. I don't have a screenshot at hand, but I can tell you that I have a Blaze 95 with six rounds of ammunition, an electric cattle prod with a spare battery since it burns through them. I've got some bandages, but that is where my medical supplies run out. I've no food nor drink and speak of the devil, I'm slowly dying of starvation. It is almost impossible to find loot, it seems. How the hell do you guys manage to find AKs and most importantly food and drink?
  2. What makes Olsha so special? I've been there a couple times and it has nothing of value. All of the buildings are full of literally useless junk.

  5. I played DayZRP religiously for several months in 2013, but the mod grew stale in my opinion as the camps that popped up after the TP kept failing due to rampant robbery and attacks from hostile groups. While I understand that those attacks were completely within the rules, and excellently roleplayed, not having anywhere to go for roleplaying and just roaming the map couldn't save it from the god awful mechanics that Arma 2 has. So I stopped playing, but I never forgot about DayZRP. Some months ago I tried coming back and seeing if anything had changed for the better. In my opinion, it really hadn't. There were more camps now, yes, but after getting a taste of what DayZ could be with the standalone, the mechanics still kept pushing me away. I had trouble coming up with a proper character which would fit to the lore of the mod (which, for the record, I still don't quite comprehensively understand) so I quit again. But now it is a completely different story. DayZRP in the standalone breathed new life into the entire formula, at least for me. Sure, the standalone isn't perfect, and it definitely runs like shit, but with the developers working on patches constantly, and with focus of the DayZRP staff shifting to the standalone, it can only go up from here. I can definitely foresee myself becoming active on the forums once more and more importantly, I can see myself enjoying DayZRP again.
  6. All mentions of a cameraman are referring to this: http://www.dayzrp.com/t-the-cameraman Just a couple of weeks ago, Stuart Haywood would've considered himself to be the luckiest man alive. After all, how many 19-year-olds get the chance to be a part of a news crew sent to cover an event that the entire world is watching. Especially when international news coverage of said event is limited, to say the best. Stuart had finished school and was now a certified sound recordist, so when he was hired by BBC to be in the news crew of a famous on-the-scene reporter who's been to warzones around the world, he felt like he was on the top of the world. Not only would he get to work in the field he's been studying for, he might be able to see the world. And see the world he did, as not three weeks after being hired, the word came in that Stuart, along with the reporter and a cameraman, would be sent to Chernarus, a small country in South Zagoria, where they would follow as the story of a disease that has hit the area developed. As soon as Stuart got off the small plane on the small airport, he could immediately feel that they were in over their heads. Security was tight, with armed guards monitoring the crew's every step. They were barely let into the country, and when they were, the guards warned them to as a precaution not eat fresh meat, vegetables or drink the local water. The reporter seemed to love the situation, though, so in order to not seem like he was getting cold feet and to keep his job, Stuart didn't voice his concerns and decided to just follow suit for the time being. After a couple of days of shooting in various locations, almost never without at least two armed guards and never in the woodlands, the situation in the country heated rapidly. Suddenly riots, fights and overall dissarray were immediately noticeable even to the reporters who were dwelling in comfort, rather than living out in the boondocks. Both Stuart and the cameraman wanted to get out of the country and back into the UK as soon as possible, but this is where the reporter saw all the potential. International coverage from the region was disappearing by the hour but they were still here, in the hornet's nest. They could still reach BBC and they still had their equipment. It was obvious to Stuart that the crew wasn't going anywhere until something forced them to. The next day the crew were scheduled to do an interview with a high-ranking officer in the local armed forces about the military's strategy to uphold not only regional stability, but the quarantine of Chernarus itself. As the crew approached the base in which the interview was supposed to be conducted, they heard what sounded like a crash and an explosion, after which their truck stopped rapidly in the middle of the road. The crew couldn't see what was happening from inside the covered back of the lorry, but whatever it was, it made the armed guards jump from the back of the truck with weapons drawn. Suddenly a hail of gunfire came through the fabric that was covering the lorry's bed. Stuart and the cameraman managed to throw themselves on the floor in panic, but the reporter caught a burst of fire and remained on the bench, dead. "He's fucking dead!" Stuart shouted in disbelief. "What the fuck is happening?" "A militia attack!" one of the guards shouted from outside. "Run back and get off the road, it is not safe here!" Stuart jumped out of the truck and ran off the road and into the woods like a bat out of hell. Soon he got far enough not to hear the gunfire anymore, but now he was not only lost, but alone. He thought about shouting for the cameraman, but figured that any soldiers of members of the militia might hear him. With the circumstances being utterly against him, Stuart decided to keep walking in the direction that he thought the city might be in, hoping to not only find somebody friendly, but to stay alive.
  7. Definitely doesn't fit my taste in music, but it wasn't horrible so a 4/10 seems about right. I'm not sure how many Jack White fans there are here, but I'm a huge fan of everything he does. The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather and his solo stuff he's been doing for the past couple of years. Not too long ago he released the namesake song from his upcoming album Lazaretto. I like it a lot, it's definitely 'Jack White.' [video=youtube]
  8. Yeah, no. 1/10 for at least an effort. [video=youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3JjlkfX5Gk I don't know what it is about Dispatch, but they haven't made a single thing that's bad, and they've made songs from pretty much every genre under the sun.
  9. Ehh, I've heard better, but that wasn't all bad. 6/10. [video=youtube] More White Stripes, though this is far from their usual garage punk sound. I love this song though.
  10. I'm definitely not a fan of The Police. Their music is just too dull for me. 3/10. [video=youtube] Alt-J raises a lot of mixed reactions, a lot of people like them but a lot of people hate them. Don't quite know why.
  11. That was surprisingly good. The beginning seemed a bit dull but after a while I got into it and the rest was really good. The vocalist reminds me a bit of Alt-J, which isn't a bad thing. 8/10. [video=youtube] And now for something completely different. I've been listening to a lot of Jack White's production, pre and post The White Stripes. Fell in Love With a Girl is from The White Stripes' 2001 album White Blood Cells, which I think is their best.
  12. Before I went on hiatus from DayZRP (a bad move on my part) The Raven's Nest was one of the best -- if not the best -- things about DayZRP.
  13. Yeah, as much as I hate to say it, I've been gone for a long, long time.
