    It's worth noting 1.7.7 is out now - and it makes the zombies a lot more annoying. They can knock you down, they're more aggressive, chance of infection with every hit, etc. Lots of moaning in-game that people have to actually think about them now :) Though you can still sit in pine trees and they can't hit you..

    Isn't the obvious issue with server issued rare loot player hoarding?

    Is anyone still playing?

    I fancied a bit of this today but my usual haunt (UK#10) has been empty every time I've checked. They've apparently moved server/added one but the new IP is deserted too.

    Anyone got a decent server that they frequent?

    DayZero is approaching 1.0 - and the excellent BMRF folks will be running the official US servers.

    What's DayZero? There's that many different offshoots of DayZ now I find it pretty difficult to keep up as someone seems to knock out a different mod every month.

    Two mods seem to getting the attention now..

    Overwatch - a 'less broken version of Breaking Point', lots of military loot, tasers, etc on the Chernarus map.

    Zero - an alternative to standalone(?), different loot in different storage, a new map (Podagorsk, at version 1) related to Chernarus (but half the size).

    .. the Zero devs seem to be sensible and it seems to be the current mod of choice ('til the next one) in anticipation of version 1, which they're showing to streamers / etc.

    Standalone has just gone up on the BI store. Expect the page to instantly go down.

    Edit* Already has.

    Been wanting to try this. Too many games to play!
    Might wait for the first videos to appear that will no doubt suck me in.

    Don't think I'll bother with this unless they manage to make the movement more fluid and remove the weird delay between shooting an enemy and them reacting.

    It's Alpha stage at the moment is it?
    So they will surely sort all that out in time.

    Yeah they've said they reckon at least a year til they call it a beta.

    I'm not sure that stuff will ever get fixed though; some of the clunkiness seems to be considered a 'feature', and they never fixed that stuff for Arma 2.

    Guess the big thing is the overhaul of the networking system, now the servers are the boss and the client can't just do what it wants - just gotta see if it actually stops the bad people. New inventory system looks OK on videos, I never really felt I understood the old one. The Arma clunkyness doesn't bother me too much (after getting used to it).

    Definitely a million things to fix, just glad they've got the backend overhaul sorted and have something out there to iterate upon.

    As much as I want to buy it and contribute, I keep on looking at the Steam forum pages and dying a little inside from all the retards it's seemed to attract.

    I'm giving the Breaking Point mod for ARMA 3 a go. Feels like DayZ when I first started playing it.

    Bought it, had a run around (in the dark, had to turn up the old gamma and brightness), crashed after a few minutes. Good to be back :)

    I had brilliant fun earlier with a mate trying to find fresh spawns on the coast to restrain with handcuffs and then harvest their blood with IV starter kits. Sadly haven't found a single piece of medical supplies in any hospitals yet.

    If there is ever a zombie apocalypse, remind me to stay away from you...

    I swear we're one patch away from an online organ harvesting ring.

    Can you take infected blood and give that to people?

    Is this thread just for the mod and the other for the standalone? Might be worth a merge.
