    It was a Balota Airfield. I may or may not be on this evening. Depends on which server we choose to play on.

    Yeah not a lot of people playing the Chernarus map anymore. Namalsk and Taviana are popular maps. Those heatpacks are really needed on Namalsk, and Taviana is so big that you kinda need a vehicle to get around.

    As many of you know we have experienced some problems with our servers.

    We have now got a 100% fully working without glitches/bugs server, and the correct mission file.

    It is a Taviana.EU server, use DayZ Commander to download and install.

    IMO much better version that the Taviana.com

    Will give the server a blast. See what happens. Maybe stream when Im playing.

    Most likely die more than survive.

    i'm going on it now, but it looks empty.

    it is empty, and loot is taking a while to spawn. i appreciate the irony in an alice pack being the first thing i find then not finding anything to store in it :)

    Has anybody heard about this? http://anyoneincherno.com/

    Its changed up the DayZ recipe and it works really well. They have added in military AI, to act like the military has been sent in to wipe the infection. The AI roam most towns and woods. Nowhere is safe! Also there is Bandit AI as well. Most people in the server work together to try and kill the military but there are still a small number of bandits. Its whitelisted as well so it stops hackers more than your average server.

    It also has a story and custom missions. They are posted online on the forums where many people turn up in the same place to complete the mission that has been given. Custom missions can be requested on the forums from admins and you go and complete the mission given.

    Simply put it awesome.

    Think I'm going to give this a go as soon as I get some leave. Is it still really hard to get into as a total noob?

    Your best bet is to do the training in Arma 2 so that you can get used to the controls. Its a clunky system, but once you've got it down, you won't have to worry about pushing the wrong button during a firefight or with zombies chasing you. Adrock listed his private server IP above. Send one of us a pm and we'll give you the password. Its a great server to mess around on.

    Some tips.

    Private Hives are better than the main hive servers. Better admins and some whitelisting available from various servers. Means less hackers. There is lots of running to find gear of any kind. Zombies can and will aggro from various ranges. Running everywhere isn't always advised.

    Also I just watched this.



    Not to be put off by DayZ. Explains a lot.

    Myself/Telltale/Fluidic and others took a bunch of vehicles and a chopper from one location way up to an out of the way place. An hour or so later two guys appear out of no where and killed/banned us and took them back.

    I believe there is an ability to make a player spawn at a location of an admins choosing. So they spawned near by and then killed us etc.

    Knowing our exact location using admin controls.

    In actual fact it explains why an admin that Fluidic killed the other week said yeah take my gear and hide my body I don't need to come get my stuff etc.

    He could simple admin hack his gear again. Because it isn't abused on video, hell that Nick posted video regarding WarZ and an admin stating he was going to spawn gear in for his friends.
