    DayZ and Resource Management PSA

    Haven't been experiencing such issues with dayz, but when it comes to some small freezes I've noticed closing down chrome helps from time to time. The only thing that's worrying me is that in last week after alt-tabbing I've noticed that there's 200mb left on the disc with my system. After shutting down dayz it goes 7GB up.
  2. Good morning, good day, good evening... Some time ago I came across a question on our forums but the topic quickly 'sunk' below other, more popular threads. Long story short it was a 'problem' with a way to arrive into Chernarus when somebody creates a character, let say TODAY. Replies that were posted seem to support the idea, that Chernarus is still under a strict or at least part-quarantine and it got me worried, that maybe I don't quite get a grip on the lore itself. Nobody mentioned that yes, you should be able to freely move around the world by now because forces that were onced focused on containing the infection are probably now trying to defend their own countries or cities (using common sense and text from lore). As quoted from lore: After two weeks, the majority of Chernarus was a desolate burnt-out shadow of its former self. By the conclusion of week two, Ukraine and Turkey were suffering from a total societal breakdown, and many areas across Europe, Asia, and the Americas were containing major outbreaks in and around transportation hubs. So it was, the decline of humanity was insured by the failures of our own arrogance. While our globalized society connected people in ways unfathomable by our ancestors, it also revealed a vital flaw in our very being. As a result of our interconnectivity, the infection was able to travel far and wide before anyone was able to throw the alarm. From Tokyo to Paris, Anchorage to Buenos Aires, the infected walked among us and war raged. Our nature of abstract blindness made us weak and vulnerable, and thus we suffered. Even what was occurring in one's own country was secondary to the drama unfolding right in their own neighborhoods. Similar stories would play out within nearly every country and continent on earth, all with one inevitable final climax. After a month, the remains of a global society was crucified on the graves of those who built it. However, resistance to the virus and its after effects remained as entire nations attempted to eradicate the threat in the midst, the winners and losers of this titanic clash yet to be determined. How far has the infection spread? The outbreak of the infection begins in July of 2017, and due to Miroslavl and Novigrad being international hubs, the infection was able to escape chernarus and spread globally. By July 24th, there are outbreaks in most major countries, some big and some small. Turkey and Ukraine are almost completly overrun. My last foreign character always told that he didn't even know when he crossed the border between Russia and Chernarus when he was travelling south in Russia (abandoned checkpoints, unguarded borders). Putting aside that lately people seem to be quoting IC things that happend in previous lores (wars between groups etc) I wonder what do you guys think about the general state of the whole world (without focusing on bringing back Loremasters or smth) with the current "start-up Lore" we have now? Should 'how you got through the border' really be a problem for a person that just joined the community? Thank you for you opinions and help in advance.
  3. Born in '84 in the capitol of Chernarus, Jiri had one skill in particular - getting himself into troubles. Caught many times for petty crimes, he started to look for a different angle to aproach the subject. Already at young age he noticed how easy is to play on people feelings and take advantage of them. Also the crime was way harder to prove, so the choice was simple - stop stealing, start using brain and get better rewards. First cons were simple - fake jewelery, then came a little bit more complcated that needed planning and thinking ahead - convincing old people that his their grandchild in need of money. Every single bill he earned, he saved. Not for himself. But for greater plans, greater cons. Even Jiri didn't notice, when he became a puppet on strings for one of the people of questionable reputation. Soon he was driving a foreign luxurious car, buying land through intimidation, bribing politicians, blackmailing anybody that was worth it. But nobody else knew he was standing in shade of his boss. He was just a puppet following plans given to him. A face. When the infection hit, all the money he saved were slowly losing value. When people were still believing it's just a temporary situation, bribes were a good way to get thigs done - going through checkpoints, avoiding curfew. But soon the virus got out of control. Trying to escape the infection Jiri decideds to head east, to one of the safehouses he sometimes used with his partners in crimes. Speeding with two briefcases full of money he crashes. Covered in blood, holding a gun he not once used before, he starts his journey into a brand new world.

    Item Shop Discussion

    Even foood? 2x can of peaches 5 Euro - buy premium package of 10 cans and get your free can opener now! I don't understand how people are seeing some conspiracy theories in this shop. You're not forced to buy it and even if there were items that you wouldn't be able to find IG I would be ok with that. You can always get the from players that own it. Players that own it can trade it (1 item every 12h). Or you can just simply wear something else. People seem to feel very entitled these days. As I stated before, yes the prices seem high, but you get different variations. For buying Aviators you get different types of glasses. Different face mask patterns that you can use on different charactes. Unlimited use - you get robbed, next day you're good! I can't wrap my head around the fact, that almost every single idea lately is welcomed with such a criticism #dayzrpisdead (but I do appreciate the constructive one)

    Objects (weapons, clothing etc) you'd like to see in the game.

    Never driven a hum-vee. Love those vehicles since first C&C, first game on my first PC. Would love to see it, drive it, hell... shot from it at a horde from the gunner position. They are just beautiful. I would love to see more and more civilian clothing (if not different types, then different patterns of shirts etc.) A hood that you can put on (like usable hoodie) would be awesome.
  7. It's a hard week in my work, but damn @ComradePilgrim I couldn't stop laughing. I'll see how much of our RPS competition was recorded and maybe cut it and upload it. Also huge thanks for providing some great RP on our trip!

    Maybe $10 for glasses is a little bit high (way to high with my shitty salary), but you do understand that it buys you not only unlimited ammount but also different patterns - for glasses that's like 5 so $2 each... And even if someones rob you, wait 12h, spawn a new set.

    DayZ Standalone Experimental 0.63

    Did you try joining via launcher?
  10. To add: You could just say you've arrived through russian border. You just went through different checkpoints and they we're abandoned and you don't even know at what point you've crossed the border. That story can be as true as people stating that there's a fully operational checkpoint somewhere. As true as every single story I hear from foreign survivors talking about what's going on home...
  11. Maybe, just maybe, I didn't quite understood the lore... isn't whole world gone to shit? Who would be guarding borders, when the situation is same in every other place? Quoting from the lore section, I can't seem to find a single reason why crossing the border at this point (day 400+ of infection) would be impossible. What would be the reason to try to contain Chernarus outbreak, when every country is suffering same way? After two weeks, the majority of Chernarus was a desolate burnt-out shadow of its former self. By the conclusion of week two, Ukraine and Turkey were suffering from a total societal breakdown, and many areas across Europe, Asia, and the Americas were containing major outbreaks in and around transportation hubs. So it was, the decline of humanity was insured by the failures of our own arrogance. While our globalized society connected people in ways unfathomable by our ancestors, it also revealed a vital flaw in our very being.

    My Prize - I shot the Alpha of the horde of deers - One shot through the neck

    It always makes me said to see animals suffer! NO TO HUNTERS! The screen looks nice and hunting itself is also fun. Hopefully there will be more rewards brought back (skin, bones, teeth etc). If you want your whole hood dissapear press ~ once, and for the second part hold ~ for a short time. Both parts of HUD will dissapear.

    SCREENSHOT OF THE MONTH CONTEST - No People

    Well then... let me just take my precious beans back... naaaah it's looking great!
  14. I got the one like the one above yesterday. I've tried restarting whole game multiple times. I've restarted my PC. Nothing. I launch the game for the last time before looking into forums and it's white again. I alt-tab (leave the game on white screen), look for a solution. When I alt-tab back to check on the game, the dayz screen appears with a loading Icon and it joins the server like nothing ever happend.

    SCREENSHOT OF THE MONTH CONTEST - No People

    Damn you've found great angle from that broadcast tower on the valley leading to "home town" of my character. Looks really, really great. Let me at least give you some beans, since it's not possible to vote for this one.
