    Since when? (NVFL Discussion)

    This touches on something I've held as an article of faith since I first joined DayZRP a couple of years ago and was roleplaying. In particular, roleplaying with those who I wouldn't consider to be particularly fantastic roleplayers. My verdict: much of the staff do not care about roleplay as much as they care about their precious rules. Multiple times I have been confronted by people saying things that are blatantly obvious to anyone who isn't severely autistic (not disparaging autistic people, I am a teacher in training and work with autistic kids, many are incapable of inference and therefore take everything literally) that it's a declaration of hostile attempt. An example, I was recently confronted by someone who said "The spirits are telling me I need to sacrifice you". Had I shot this person then and there, which was my first instinct, I'd have been done for RDM. Similarly, when his friends (who pretended unconvincingly not to know him) came over and faux-encouraged me to take retribution and repeatedly moved to surround me, had I mowed them down then I'd be done for RDM. Certain members of this community continue to hold onto this idiotic "well I don't think that's do-able so it's unrealistic" type of mindset which is frankly a reflection on them more than anything else. People do crazy things in the heat of the moment in an attempt to save themselves, including throwing themselves on grenades (potential death by explosion), hiding under corpses (potential death by disease), or fighting in an unwinnable situation (because a 1% chance is better odds than certain death). People do insane things when their fight or flight instinct kicks in. I've never been in some serious, life-threatening combat situation, but I've had dudes go for me in a bar and I can tell you, in the moment your reaction is automatic. You don't think, you act, and anecdotal evidence from real life proves that this is the case. James Franco's character from 127 Hours would easily get banned for NVFL by some staff members in this community. Just to put this out there, I'm saying this in the hopes at least some people (staff or otherwise) might decide to stop being such advocates of a mary sue persona, not as a personal attack on anyone (hence not naming names). Yes what the guy who got banned was dumb from a logical, detached standpoint, but by actually using your human empathy and imagining yourself in that position it becomes way easier to understand.

    Dealing with sickness in 1.0

    Likewise, a friend of mine lost it randomly whilst we were running in the woods. The three of us spent hours curing ourselves, then some idiot with a cough ran up to us and we were IMMEDIATELY infected again. At this point I'm seriously going to start shooting anyone who's sick who tries to get near me. January mod update can't come soon enough, assuming it works.

    Then that needs to be changed. I understand that that's how it currently works, but there must be a better way to do it. Allow me to offer an alternative which may be possible in the code, I don't know: Let's say the standard flu timer is set to 2 hours of sickness. Maybe you could make it so that each tetracycline antibiotic you take reduces that timer by, say, 5 minutes, up to a maximum of 30 minutes left. That way the drugs have some effect.

    Codeine does nothing for pain. Codeine is a cough suppressant and reduces the symptoms temporarily, whilst tetracycline antibiotics attack the root cause (I recently had a lung infection and was taking codeine linctus and doxycycline). Ideally, it would work that codeine would stop you coughing/sneezing for a while but not affect the sickness itself, and rest/good food and water/antibiotics would cure the disease.

    Dealing with sickness in 1.0

    When in January is the update coming out? I never had an issue with Kuru because you had to go out of your way to do stupid stuff to get it, however I contracted this flu from drinking from a well. I am aware that there are risks regarding drinking from non-pure water sources, but wells too? If the sickness is this easy to contract them it should certainly not be as difficult to cure as it is. It also doesn't help the server when spaces are being filled by people who are not roleplaying as they're forced to sit alone in a warm house. Maybe turn the sickness off (if that's possible) until it works properly.

    Dealing with sickness in 1.0

    As of time of writing, I am logging off having spent nearly 2 hours sitting next to a fire eating food and downing antibiotics and have STILL got the damned illness. My two friends who also contracted it, and were in separate buildings a hundred meters away, are in the same position. The mod should be tweaked to remove this illness entirely until there is a reliable, working method of curing it as currently there is none and it's down to luck whether or not you end up with terminal bronchitis.
  8. This is the most ridiculous, self-indulgent post I've seen on any forum in quite a while. You wonder why people don't want to roleplay with you when you're an ultra-hostile group named after a group led by an excessively-parodied pop culture icon? Give me a break lmao. When you can come up with something other than X group with Y accent attacking people for Z dumb reason and actually do something interesting, like how the Saviours from the Walking Dead actually fulfill a purpose in creating a society (albeit built on slave labour), THEN maybe people will be willing to roleplay with you. The only interesting hostile group I've roleplayed with on DayZRP was the Masquerade I think it was called, the masked dudes led by Joffrey who, whilst ultra hostile, had a twisted code of honour/morality and were creating something of a society, if a very primitive one. Also, there's more than one way to roleplay a bad guy than "insane, may or may not hear voices, screams like a maniac during hostile situations".
  9. It might help you if the groups didn't all play the same spin on "hurr durr we're evil and cool and not robbing you for gear" and there were some actual groups of "good guys", or at least law-and-order types. But then the rules don't really allow for that.
  10. Captain Heller Bale - though a Corporal before the outbreak - was an English/Irish soldier, marskman and leader whose later allegiance was to the United Nations left in Chernarus. Given up for adoption at birth, Heller was raised in military boarding schools and eventually followed the obvious path by joining the British Armed Forces. He worked his way to the rank of Corporal in a relatively short period of time, and shortly before his deployment to Zagoria was given the opportunity to pass the RMAS standardised tests to earn a promotion to Lieutenant - the outbreak occurred before he was able to find out about his success. Prior to the outbreak Heller had been deployed along with a single company to act as urban sniper support units and close-body protection for UN officials and high-ranking Zagorian government officials. During the initial conflicts at the beginning of the outbreak Heller and his colleagues were successfully able to evacuate a small number of UN officials before airspace was closed indefinitely due to the rampant spread of disease. Steadily, and in numerous combat scenarios with the infected, Heller's unit was wiped out until he was the last remaining member - at which point he promptly fled to the mountains of central Zagoria and withdrew into an existence of pure survivalism. After some months Heller emerged and ended up in contact with Major Aaron West and his company of UN soldiers. Heller joined the UN group with the goal of helping to restore some semblance of order to the country - however, the rising tide of banditry and social decay meant the UN had an extremely difficult time. Major West promoted Heller in the field on numerous occasions, and eventually - after the death of their close friend Captain David Black - promoted Heller to the rank of Captain and second in command of the UN offensive. Heller attempted to organise the UN and increase its influence but the propaganda spread by criminals meant trust for the UN was effectively non-existent. Major West soon disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and with him Heller also dissolved yet again. Following the collapse of the UN forces in Zagoria, Bale managed to find and secure a small, military medical facility near the Russian border. During his time there, Bale found and studied a large number of medical textbooks and reports, particularly focusing on those concerning human biology and virology. Bale was later forced to abandon this facility when raiders attempted to oust him - though he did leave willingly, he left behind a few nasty surprises, and actively hunted the raiders for a small time before withdrawing. He has returned to Chernarus with the intention of learning more about the outbreak.
  11. Whilst it's unrelated to the facts of my initial POV, I'd like to voice my support for the Svoboda guys here. I see nothing wrong with you going in and making demands. They initiated in order to make demands at gunpoint - it was a show of force, something that happens. The hypocrisy here is that people have been banned for ruleplay over roleplay, yet here you are saying their GOOD roleplay isn't allowed because it bends the rules slightly? They initiated, took care of us, gave us their message and left. They gave us KoS rights, that's the risk they took, and they chose to take it.
  12. Hi there. I was there during this situation as Captain Heller Bale ("The UN guy"). Ignoring the insane hypocrisy of their group's ideals (but they are nationalists, so nothing odd there) I see nothing to get irked about with the roleplay. A number of us were talking at the front of the upper hospital in the Pavlovo when Svoboda turned up and initiated. After an initial disarmament against the corrugated fence we were marched to the lower medical facility, then taken upstairs. It should be noted that there were shots during the march and I believe someone may have been executed, but probably because they didn't do as told. When inside we were lined up against the wall, then soon after one of the men inside ordered us to line across the hallway as human shields, as a fight had broken out between Svoboda and the Irish group that had taken over 'protection' for the hospital. One of the Svoboda men explained that their initial plan would be to negotiate with the Irish, however once it turned out they had the upper hand (and admittedly the Irish started guerrilla fighting by the sounds of it) they decided to just finish them off. Whilst lined up we had 1/2 Svoboda men behind us, and one in front covering the door. The only time one of the Irish made it to that door, the man in front killed him immediately, so we weren't injured. During the situation Svoboda explained what they wanted of us (their demands have been covered accurately in previous POVs). After explaining this, they did nothing to stop us talking and roleplaying, and also cared for the character who was roleplaying having a broken leg. They gave saline to the one man who caught a shot when infected phased through the door into the corridor, and did nothing to stop me taking a drink when I needed it. They made it extremely clear that they were here not to rob, or to kill, but to deliver demands - I am of the belief that this would have been a short, if aggressive, visit if the Irish had not been there to fight back. They were here for a show of force, not an actual fight. Whether or not their use of human shields is counted as no care for hostages isn't up to me to decide, but given that they even said that their hope was that the sight of us would stop the Irish shooting I personally have no issues with it. I may have been a little upset if I'd died in a crossfire, but at the end of they day they did successfully protect us before delivering their message and leaving WITHOUT stripping us of all our gear. Only thing that upset me is one of the bastards took the dead Irishman's FN FAL. I wanted that damned gun.

  14. I see so many stuck-up douches sitting there saying "lol the guys in those videos are such bad rp'ers" when a good number of them are pretty shocking themselves. New people make mistakes, some more than others. Being an arse about it and insta-reporting and getting them banned/whitelist revoked within days of joining is a massive dick move.
  15. Server and location: Server 1, Vybor Approximate time and date of the incident (SERVER TIME): 24/07/2017, 20:30GMT Your in game name: Borya Ivanov Names of allies involved: None Name of suspect/s: Gerald Gillum, Sonny Phelps (?), two others Friendly/Enemy vehicles involved (if any): None Additional evidence? (video/screenshot): http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/445112938782498873/5336D0E2C521496E3BC06755C13868D1569AF37E/ Detailed description of the events: I logged in at Vybor (southern side, in the blue-doored warehouse opposite the piano house) and made my way to the road. I was forced to look away from the screen due to my cat going ballistic but soon realised I was being talked to in an overly-friendly manner by the first member of the opposing group (his name was Sonny somethings, I believe it was Phelps). He starts being subtly threatening (i.e. the whole "overly friendly" overdone psycho routine). I attempt to move as I have quite blatantly seen three individuals running around the backs of buildings. Due to the rules (which I feel are illogical in this situation) I was unable to turn and shoot them to avoid what was quite blatantly going to be a robberty attempt. I tell Sonny to stop following me, to which he demands I put my hand up. I comply by placing my weapon on the ground, stepping away and putting my hands up. When I quiz them as to their reason (my character is not affiliated with any groups nor are there any surviving members of any hostilities) he simply says "I like that SVD" - whilst one person ties me using duct tape another, without saying a word, comes along and has a nice gander at my UMP 45 that I dropped before taking it for himself. I am quickly led inside the piano house and taken upstairs. They have already been taking items from my person (for example taking my balaclava without removing my helmet - not the best Rp there). I make a sarcastic comment to one of the two males who are bothering to roleplay with me as he is unable to finish his sentence without stuttering and he responds by knocking me out. My revolver is taken and I am asked for OOC permission to play Russian Roulette - as we are ALL aware this involves a revolver with a single bullet inside. Having tested this previously myself, spinning the revolver chamber ALWAYS ends up with the round chambered in the relative second chamber - this means the second pull of the trigger will fire. It becomes obvious here when the first shoot results in my death that they have loaded what is most likely the entire revolving chamber and simply executed me. Whilst I am not averse to decent hostile/hostage RP from the beginning this was clearly an attempt to take my high-tier weapons and the "Russian Roulette" at the end really was just a joke.
