    A bunch of us are getting into DayZ+ now.

    Essentially, the majority of the programmers are focused on the Standalone version, but some are continuing development on DayZ, which is being called DayZ+.

    There are loads of additional features, restricted weapons (American weapons are harder to find, usually on downed choppers) and zeds are a hell of a lot tougher. Loads more construction options as well.

    Jester had a solid go of it last night and build this:

    What has happened is a hacker injected a script into your characters code, BE sees that as hacking and banned you.

    Appeal might get fixed. Whitelisted servers have less hackers. And even private hives too.

    Use the play6 updater it has a option to start the game via steam (some of the launchers dont).
    Also unless you have the PMC DLC the player character in Day-z is still low res (well it is for me) as you get BAF (lite) and PMC (lite) DLCs with Arrowhead. Essentially all the models from the DLC but in a low res form.

    fair enough, I use other mods so 6 is best for me :D .

    Its not vital to get the DLC for dayz the skin it uses is pretty basic anyway. Upto you ofc.

    Random goofing in the style of "grab whatever I can and die" last night turned into: two dead squads (seven people killed, two multiple times), one dead hacker, completely destroyed large camp with best gear and heli downed with M107 at night.

    The lovely whining started after admin and his buddies lost the chopper. Apparently being able to down a heli at night without NVGs is hacking.

    Such is life in these DayZ.

    DayZ+ is tough, im still noob to dayz in general but me and a mate have been trying for a few days and we constantly get owned by the zombies. Gonna head back to normal dayz for a good while lol!

    Anyone got any tips for 2 guys starting together? Im starting to think we may be better just arranging a meeting point in centre of map and we make our way there seperatly, the hassle of meeting up at game start and the subsequent looking for loot seems a lot of hassle.

    Also im certain i had a char on a public server, so i shoulld be able to join any other public ones and my char carries across right? I cant find him anymore? If you dont login within a certain time does it get wiped?

    Best tip? Stop making noise. One bullet can attract untold amounts of zombies. Learn to go through a town by crouch walking or prone. Only fire if you have to and go for the head with your most quiet weapon.

    If you are being chased by a zombie, find a conifer and go into it. They can't hit you while you're inside a conifer.

    Your character should still be there, yes.

    I have yeah. Its pretty good!. You usually begin with $200 and a G17 but this varies. Building bases is fun! Loads of vehicles and full servers. Give it a go!



    I could try to get to the hospital in Cherno and get some meds for you. Low FPS but I think I can slideshow my way to you.

    Yea i keep noise to a min when i obtain a firearm its reserved for PVP or some emergency with zombies, but on the odd occasion one zombie does creep up lol, on dayz+ i dont think that tree thing works but otherwise yea i do my best creeping etc etc.

    Strange, i have joined every server in sequence that i have been on (around 10, play 6 keeps a note for me) and i cannot locate him again :( its annoying cos i found a car checked gear, empty, but hey a car, so i was toodeling around towns etc then i manage to break a leg falling from the 1st floor of a barn....as i crawled all the way back to my car i managed to properly check the gear...wat did i find an M4 with 5 clips, food, water canteens, blood packs, epi-pens, tent, map, compass, 3 other rifles (no ammo tho) and "HALLEUJA" morphine!!!

    i cant believe i drove around for aprox 2 hrs and had all that stuff! lol, but i crashed the car (fail....) well technically it got stuck more cos of a game bug but i wont drive thru a town again lol. Nwo i was on foot in the forest when i logged off, cant find it :(

    OK guys, all this talk of awesome Day:Z has got me gasping, does anyone know a way to upgrade from the standard-edition ARMA2 to something Day:Z compatible? Cheapest I've found so far is $30 for the full version on GOG...
