I've gotten a couple messages from some people in the community throughout the week so I figured I'd just post here to help ease some concerns for you all or others that are wondering.
I am doing fine. I just had a lot of stuff pop up with work and such so my online presence hasn't been able to really be maintained while I have been dealing with the different training I've been having to do as well as PT in the mornings. I work from 7-4 and on those days where I workout and go to the gym, I get home and usually head to sleep from being so exhausted. I'm working on myself physically to lose weight, maintain fitness needed for the military, and have a better appearance in general to gain back some confidence in my physical appearance, something I haven't had for the longest time. Since joining the military, I have definitely gained some of that back, but have thought, why stop there? Why not keep going and see just how much I can change myself for the better?
Things have slowed down a bit and hopefully I should be able to pick back up in DayZRP, however I am mainly playing Valorant as of late since it's competitive aspect has been extremely appealing to me and I am currently on set to be competing in tournaments for the Air Force esports team here by the end of the year or early next year, whenever it forms.
tl;dr: Work has been busy, I am fine, just improving myself and expanding my horizons.
Looks good! Interested to see how you go about the hostilities with hopefully no guns needing to be involved.
Also, when the casino gets set up, will free alcohol be provided while I bet away all my gear?
@RobBoi1 Its location is randomized for each unique individual that joins.
Yours is there. I promise you 100% without a doubt. We've had people look at it for hours before they finally found it. It is one of those things that you will skip over so many times and then when you finally see it, question all sake of humanity on how you missed it.
I'm just gonna go down the list of quotes here man.
You have ways to keep your equipment safe. MoreDoors is there for a reason. It seems to me that your issue is that you can't make them 100% secure in a fortress of walls and as such you consider them "not safe." The walls were removed for good reason. People made unrealistic mega structures, or even realistic ones, but would sit inside their walls all day instead of moving about and interacting with others on the server. The quality of RP diminished HEAVILY. On top of that, they were removed for server performance and client side FPS performance.
Also you are on an RP server, quit getting so attached to your gear.
It is almost as if even if walls were added, that this wouldn't stop people from breaking into your stuff anyways. Doors work just fine. Again, quit getting so attached to your gear. It is a multiplayer game, nothing will EVER be sacred. You will ALWAYS lose your stuff one way or another.
Obviously not since people have found them. Maybe these "places nobody will ever look its golden!" spots, are also what one of the 700+ other people that play in this community have also thought, "Hmmm... maybe there is something at this place here. It seems like such a DECEIVINGLY good spot." Or perhaps even if it is in the woods, consider that the map is only so big, and again, 700+ people travelling about, somebody is bound to find it.
You don't need to have an armory all for yourself stuck inside barrels inside a cabin in the middle of nowhere. 17 days into the outbreak, the last thing we need is one man hoarding weapons like he has been prepping for the end of the world for 30+ years. Then that causes the issue of no weapons EVER spawning for anybody else, all because one person has unrealistically decided they need to horde 15+ weapons in a barrel for that JUST IN CASE scenario where he dies.
The raccoon (/rəˈkuːn/ or US: /ræˈkuːn/ (listen), Procyon lotor) is a medium-sized mammal native to North America. The raccoon is the largest of the procyonid family, having a body length of 40 to 70 cm (16 to 28 in) and a body weight of 5 to 26 kg (11 to 57 lb). Its grayish coat mostly consists of dense underfur which insulates it against cold weather. Three of the raccoon's most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws, its facial mask, and its ringed tail, which are themes in the mythologies of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Raccoons are noted for their intelligence, with studies showing that they are able to remember the solution to tasks for at least three years. They are usually nocturnal and omnivorous, eating about 40% invertebrates, 33% plants, and 27% vertebrates.
The original habitats of the raccoon are deciduous and mixed forests, but due to their adaptability they have extended their range to mountainous areas, coastal marshes, and urban areas, where some homeowners consider them to be pests. As a result of escapes and deliberate introductions in the mid-20th century, raccoons are now also distributed across much of mainland Europe, Caucasus, and Japan.
Though previously thought to be generally solitary, there is now evidence that raccoons engage in sex-specific social behavior. Related females often share a common area, while unrelated males live together in groups of up to four raccoons to maintain their positions against foreign males during the mating season, and other potential invaders. Home range sizes vary anywhere from 3 hectares (7.4 acres) for females in cities to 5,000 hectares (12,000 acres) for males in prairies. After a gestation period of about 65 days, two to five young, known as "kits", are born in spring. The kits are subsequently raised by their mother until dispersal in late fall. Although captive raccoons have been known to live over 20 years, their life expectancy in the wild is only 1.8 to 3.1 years. In many areas, hunting and vehicular injury are the two most common causes of death.
As @cjackson821 stated above, it really just comes down to that.
You really just have to plan your loot trips carefully and take advantage of any animals you can find as a food source. The game isn't easy, and it isn't meant to be. I nearly starved to death yesterday, but I find once you get a good foothold, you usually won't struggle after that point. Just unlucky a bit on your end I guess. As for the rain, take shelter or take advantage of that heat pack.
While I am all for a hood down version of the poncho, I would rather it not take up the glasses spot. I'd rather it just be like our facemask Shamagh that you can just left click while holding it in your hand to make it hooded or not.
Seeing that this is the case, report can be dropped.
The way things were worded to me in Discord was that there was no way everything was taken, however seeing as they had 2 cars and such, having done the math it would be possible.
Thanks all! Report dropped!
Server and location: Server 1 - Summer camp north of severograd
Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 2:00 AM Central Standard Time, which I believe translates to 7:00 server time up to 7:20 AM Central Standard Time sooo... 12:20 Server Time
Your in game name: Lukas Stika
Names of allies involved: @Ratatosk @Sixy
Name of suspect/s: Unknown, hoping position logs will show
Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): N/A
Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): N/A
Detailed description of the events: So we have built a little camp up in the summer camp North of severograd. We had 2 cabinets, and 2 barrels full of things, and we are now finding all of those things gone as of this morning. To our belief, there is no way that all the items we had were taken and believe this to be a case of griefing. As well as from what I am being told, multiple doors of ours were broken down which was unnecessary.
I haven't been on to see the rebuild of our base since wipe, however I know the two I listed as allies were as they built everything back up, as well as known just how much of an extent of unnecessary damage was done. They will be able to list more details and such with their PoV's of what exactly has happened. Hopefully this report can help things get clarified for us.
