I have been sick so much the past couple days, if i didnt have a personal stash of tetra or whatever else i can take to cure it. I would have died so many times over. I hate when i get into some good RP we all get sick and then everyone asks for meds, super annoying. Would love to see this mechanic gone. +1
If you wish to play a new character you will have to make a new one all together. This can me done under the "DayZ" tab then "Characters" and finally click "Create new character". Or if you have one made already click manage characters and make sure that one is set as the active character!
