    New story everyone! sorry for the hiatus. this winner comes from my friend D (lets stick with the name Derrek) and his bold adventure and perilous escape from chernogorsk.

    "It was late in the afternoon, so it was getting pretty dark outside. I woke up in a aparment building i had holed up in for the night.

    it was pretty quiet, there were few zombies scattered across the city and no survivors to be seen, so i packed up my gear and left the aprtment complex.

    My goal that night was to hit my usual looting grounds before heading out to the Airbase in search of military gear. my first stop that night was the grocery store, i filled my pack with as many canned foods as possible, the trek to the airbase is quite the journey, so i would have to spare ammo for extra rations.

    Across the road from the grocery store was the firebase, my next stop. I glassed out the area for bandits before making my way across. the coast was clear as i made my way up to the big steel doors of the firebase, i peeked inside but saw very little in the form of gear. it was likely that someone had been through not too long ago.

    It became pretty clear that i should start moving, lest i run into whoever might still be in the area.

    when i had turned around to leave the firebases courtyard, i was startled by a bandit creeping up on me! i fired point blank with my pistol killing him instantly. i began to loot his corpse: bandages, magazines, night vision goggles! just my luck! now i would be able to see in the dark.

    however as fortune would have it my luck would soon turn south. I had killed a member of a notorious group of bandits, and a torrent of angry chats now filled the screen.

    "Were coming for you Derrek, we want our goggles back."

    sweet. ***. jesus.

    I turned tail and began running. where to didnt matter, all that was important was getting the heck out of Cherno before i was executed by a band of Raiders.

    i ended up at the beach, scuttling up the edge of a pier and up to a dock. from there i glassed the firebase and spotted a group of 5 bandits all kitted out in high grade military gear. they were hot on my trail and hunting me. i scurried across the dock and found a boat still parked by the shore. i jumped in and found that it still had gas!

    I revved up the motor and sped off. alerting the bandits of my where abouts.

    "Hes in a boat! after him!"

    I tore down the shore line at top speed, the bandits hot on my trail. bullets rattled off the side of the hull and engines, they began to whittle away at the boats integrity. I had no choice but to turn in. i angled the boat towards shore and cut my thrusters. a shot rang out and clipped my leg, and i began to bleed out only metres from shore.

    "thanks for bringing those goggles back Derrek hahaha"

    to which i only could reply,

    "Over my dead body"

    In my final act of defiance, i rolled the wheel hard right and threw the throttle into full gear. my body lie unconsious on the floor of the ship now destined to an endless ocean. the bandits cursed me from the shoreline, knowing they wouldnt be getting their night vision goggles back.

    It was a good death.

    Sorry. normally I would fill this thread up, but I have been taking a bit of a break from the forums silly

    Great story, glad to see that you and D are still playing.

    My character is still alive surprisingly, I think he is on day 11 or so silly.

    good to hear man! ive been trying to play recently, but cant because of the lag issues ive been having, ive run a defrag of my comp and now things are running smooth again.

    Last time i logged in i was in the room of a building surrounded by 4 survivors, we all nearly shot each other out of surprise! i quickly saluted and ran away haha.


    As a general reminder,

    dayZ version 1.5.8 is out.
    -you need fires to keep warm if not you can die from hypothermia
    -skins (bandit and survivor) are gone (?)
    -bug fixes and such

    also, the game designer is going to do away with the bandit and survivor skins soon in favor of skins that you can find and wear (yay! now i can be even -more- paranoid!) also, dogs are going to be implimented soon. they follow by your side, and you can tell them to fetch food or ammo for you. kind of like "dogmeat" form Fallout 3.

    Yeah, I still lag excessively, a guy could shoot me and I wouldn't be able to react until he has put 2-3 rounds in my skull silly.

    We've still never played together yet.

    Okay, I am confused and upset with my game right now. For some reason, every time I start the game up, my guy is on the verge of death via lack of water and food. I tried to eat and drink, but it wouldn't let me. I tried moving, and apparently was standing, so I sprinted, attracted a zombie who hit me, and consumed my clip. I then tried to bandage myself with my bandages, but couldn't. I proceeded to lay there bleeding. I quit hoping it was a bug with the server.....ideas?

    it might have been just a bug, but it might be unfortunatley client side if youve tried several times. od keep tryin on different servers to see if you can eat/drink/bandage, but if not. you might just have to sacrifice yourself

    are you up to date on your patches?

    thats true Berkut. we need to orginize sometime, im usually around Cherno in my early game survival. we should pick a server to meet up on sometime, preferably one that isnt pitch black or in Austrailia.

    Oh and i found that turning down my graphucs down smooths out the game greatly. at the cost of looking pretty.

    Currently trying to defrag the computer.

    I updated my patches this morning happy.

    Also, I am pretty much at minimum settings (macbook after all silly).

    I will for sure try the other servers, and we do need to set something up, I am in Elektro right now, so we aren't too far off.

    Too bad we haven't heard from anyone else, they still around?

    I really want this... Btw, if you log out and then back in is your character the same or do you die and get a new one?

    you will spawn in the same place, slightly healed (if you took damage) and hungry/ thirsty (you always should have extra food before logging out)

    Is the hunger proportional to how long you've been logged out?

    yeah, if you log out for 5 minutes you shouldn't be starving/thirsty when you log back in. I think you go into the red at about the hour-2 hour mark which is roughly proportional to in game hunger. you wont die if you dont play for a few days, youll just stay at low hunger till you log back in.

    of course its an alpha, so all sorts of wacky stuff can happen. one time i spawned without a backpack, i had to go scavenge one off a dead body

    In that case, I'm surprised people don't just DC at the slightest hint of danger.

    some do, but most consider it a pretty underhanded tactic. the community as a whole frowns upon it.

    besides, encounters are what the game is all about. it wouldnt be fun not getting danger and losing your valuables

    It must have a much better community than Dark Souls then. I may have to get this.... Also, how do you tell the cities apart? Experience? Learning the signs?

    all the road signs are in Cyrillic. but you begin to recognize the names after awhile

    it helps if youve played regular ArmA as well
