    pure survival sandbox, players make thier own goals, some of the DayZ forum guys have tried taking an inland city over as thier endgame. me an D are trying to get hold of a heli and play as a quick response team for survivors, or as air taxi. the longest running survivor (20 in-game hours) make his living living in the forest, hunting wild game, and olny going city side to grab ammo and water, its all very subjective and up to you really!

    another "end game" challenge, is looting every marked location on the map while collecting all the essential gears (knives, compass, map, gps, etc.)

    Hmm, I do not understand how to get the mod installed and working....

    Also, the game runs like a sloth on my laptop, so I doubt I will get to far into this until I can get my pc in working order again

    When I get home in 15 minutes, ill find you that info graphic on the game, as for your laptop, it might not be quite up to snuff, but you could always try lowering the settings

    it takes a loooong time, just be patient, bear in mind that this is an alpha that is only months old.


    also, if lots of people are trying to join the game at once, you could inadvertently DDoS the server lol!

    Alright, first experience in DayZ:

    I wake on the shore, it's day time. I notice that I am near a road with some houses on it. I quickly move up to the houses and cautiously check them for zombies. When the coast is clear, I search them, only to find empty cans and soda bottles.

    I then notice someone running through the fields. I try to hail them, but I get no response, I hid in the house and they disappear.

    As my next destination, I see a gas station across the road. As a approach, I notice the corpses of three other survivors who had met untimely ends. A brief check of their corpses finds that they have already been stripped clean, except for a lone magazine for my marakov.

    I find a soda some road flares in the gas station, my first loot, and make to a nearby barn. I notice a zombie in the distance, near the houses I was previously at, I ignore them.

    I reach the barn and find some bullets for a gun I do not have, a bandage, another clip for my marakov, and a lee einfield with no ammo.

    I then proceed down the hill towards a pair of houses. I notice zombies milling about, but decide to risk it. I reach the door to one of the houses, and as I prepare to sneak in.....a zombie comes out of it! He roars, and alerts two others to my presence. I fire on him, with a number of bullets entering his chest, but it does little to halt his advance. I get up and run, turning to fire on my assailants as I flee for my life. They manage to bite me a number of times, and I am losing blood fast. Eventually, finally, I manage to bring down the last zombie, I have lost a few thousand points of blood. I quickly bandage myself, and drink some water. I search the houses, only to find empty bottles, my near death for nothing.

    I continue up a hill towards some other houses, avoiding more zombies. Finding nothing, I make for the shore, and enter a nearby city hoping to find some loot. Crawling on my stomach I evade the zombies I meet, until one rounds a wall. I back up slowly, being sure to stay low until I mange to slip around a wall. I hear a zombie scream in the distance, but no pursuers follow me.

    I continue to crawl towards a small house. As I do, I think I notice something move, but I lose sight of it quickly. I crawl into the house, and just as I prepare to plan my next move my mind goes blurry, and I collapse, I've been hit? I lay there for a second, and then my unknown assailant finishes me off. My sight fades to black..........

    Like the dark souls reference winking.

    Next story:

    My character awakens, he does not fully know where is his. But he thinks he is near a place called Klogogrov (or something like that). He decides to move along the beach, where it is heavily forested. Eventually, he comes to a small lighthouse. Approaching carefully, he crawls along, using trees to partially cover his advance in the off chance a sniper lays in wait there. Finding nothing and no one in the lighthouse, he climbs to the top of it to get a better grasp of his surroundings. Unfortunately, all he could see was forests, so he continued along the coast.

    Eventually, he spotted something, a person! He ducked into the grass and asked for a friendly or foe confirmation. No response was heard, so he crawled behind a rock. When he peaked back out, the stranger was dead o_0! He crawled to the corpse and found it already looted, another corpse lay up the road, also looted.

    After continuing up the road, he noticed a cow, but had no knife to gut it, so he let it live. Just a little ways on further, our hero noticed a village, and lots of zombies. However, he considered it worth it to try to infiltrate the village to look for goods. Crawling up to the first building, he got distracted by a zombie up ahead. Watching it for a while, he heard a growl come from beside him! He whipped around and found a zombie standing on top of him. Realizing that he could not kill this zombie without alerting the others, he decided that his best bet was to run and fight elsewhere. Looking over his shoulder, he found three zombies hot on his heels. He ran for a while, waiting for his moment to strike. He saw it when one zombie tried to bite him and missed, causing all three of the zeds to slow down, gaining him distance.

    Using his makarov, he plugged the first one in the head, then continued with the other two.Using up his clip, he noticed 1, no 3 other zombies crouched down, coming towards him. He finished them off with another clip, leaving him with 3 clips remaining. He searched the zeds quickly, but found nothing.

    Frightened, but unharmed, he proceeded back into the village. Crawling across the road, he found a house he could enter. He scanned its perimeter for zeds, and heard one growling inside. 'Curses' he thought, if there is something in there then I am going to fight for it. Crawling back to the windows, he peered inside to notice a gun lying in the dining room.

    Determined to get it, he started crawling into the house, when suddenly the zombie inside of it started to attack him! Getting bitten multiple times, he unloaded at least 6 bullets into the zombie's midsection before it finally collapsed. Hearing the roars of nearby zombies, he limped into the building and closed the door, placed himself on the other side of the dining room and waited.

    Within seconds, a zombie flung the door open, and our hero unloaded a bullet into its head (after having to reload). The second zombie shuffled after this last one, and three to four bullets later it was also dead. He waited a few precious seconds, but nothing came. He quickly bandaged himself, having lost about 2500 units of blood. He waited a bit longer, but heard no more activity. Time to check his loot.

    He started first with the zombies, one held a clip for an assault rifle, possibly a good item to trade for with other survivors later. He checked everything else in the house, and managed to find a can of beans, a new canteen, and a brand new windchester double barreled shotgun with 17 bullets!

    Heartened by having the security of this new gun, he crawled up into the forest to take a break (after checking out a small barn) before heading back into town to check the other side before continuing onwards along the coast.
    \
    To be continued.....

    Awesome! The winnie is my fav weapon so far. It nice and quiet and can one shot most zeds, pretty decent at close quarters with enemies too. All you really need now is a box of matches and a knife and your ready to head into the wilderness! Good luck.

    Don't have a fixed one yet, usually whichever one I can get on that has lower ping for me (usually a US or NY server). FR, does that stand for France? Is that where your from? If so there's a pretty big time difference between us, so we would need to coordinate pretty closely.

    Nope west coast bc here, I like france servers because of the time difference(in game time is "twilight" and morning hours as opposed to pitch black), and I have a low enough ping that the lag doesn't effect me too much. So I call it home for now

    He bandit you Kombrad? silly Also, been having major server issues today, got a message by one server to check dayz files, and they have new versions of some files needed for the game. I suggest you update as soon as possible.

    some of those error messages you may get are because you may not have a certain DLC for arma that someone else does (ie a dude has a pair of sunglasses from a DLC) it wont affect the game drastically. you might just see a few placemarkers.

    Well, I take a quick swim to an island, and find a zombie there at a dock, I shoot him, then he disappears. I wait for a bit, then move onto the dock and suddenly he warps in and bites me, so I run back shoot him, and bandage myself. This was my last bandage, so I decide to go back to the village that I just came from to see if I can find some. As I explore, I hear someone shooting zombies, I attempt communications, but get no response. I continue on, and enter a large storage shelter at the village dock. I hear shooting outside, so I go to investigate. I find a small shed, and decide to crawl into it. As I start to enter the other survivor crawls forward a bit. Cursing, I try to roll, but fail to do so as it sense that I am still going forward. The survivor turns and shoots me in the shoulder. I roll away, and scream friendly, do not fire. I get no response. After a bit, I try to contact him again, he enters the hanger with me. I spend minutes trying to plead for help and get no response, he does vaulting animations and stares at me bleeding. I try to give him morphine (he fell unconscious) and he appears to bandage himself (he must have been bitten by a zombie). With no success, the survivor never says a word to me, and I bleed to death in front of his eyes sad
