Insane barracks spawn
Parachuting Cow Attack!
After being killed by man in ghillie suit I started my new apocalyptic adventure and as usual I’ve got the basic equipment in a city.
Then I headed into the area where I had been killed. I continue to believe that this is a perfect area to survive because you can find everything within a few kilometers. This week I have lived in the woods and exploring the various places, I’ve never had problems in finding food and drink and the ammunition were not a problem. Currently I have a AKS 74 – Kobra, a revolver (very good weapon) and during the explorations I replaced my ALICE backpack,found in the Cherno store, with Coyote Backpack. One night I decided to go further and explore a big city and especially the local hospital. Under cover of darkness was able to easily explore the west area, the hospital had the windows broken, and this was an indication that someone was already there but with surprise in one of the boxes of medicines I found a packet of antibiotics. After this great discovery and I headed back in the woods.
Nothing happened other than some far shoots and a car passed on the road at high speed and heading north-west.
After playing many hours Dayz and after finding my way in this apocalyptic world I would like to share with you readers my personal thoughts about this wonderful mod.
In my life I’ve played many games and only one can compete with Dayz regarding the intensity of emotions aroused: EVE Online.
I am a veteran of EVE Online and in Dayz I found again the tension in dealing with another player, the adrenaline rush killing an opponent, the terror of not knowing what you expect in a few moments, the gratification of exploring unknown places. In a few months Dayz has matched subscriptions of EVE Online (the sandbox for excellence) and this can not be an accident.
Many points are in favor of Dayz:
1) Even alone you can be successful . This was true for EVE online a few years ago but after the changes in the mechanics of the game is no longer possible to play EVE Online and be successful alone.
2) Dayz is very real while in EVE online have recently introduced the human characters and in any case there is still no interaction between them.
3) In Dayz you lose everything if you die, but it is easy to regain the lost items. In EVE there is insurance but to be competitive you must have items of high value and losing a ship several billion worth is frustrating.
4) many other reasons that it is better not to face here;)
In DayZ website are well highlighted three steps:
Equip does not require further action such as building, mining, learn skills, experience points, etc.
You just have to go somewhere and search without being seen by zombies or survivors. What really matters is the player and not the character.
You can choose to only kill the zombies or the other survivors.
You can kill only those who have good equipment or you can kill everyone on sight. You can even choose to remain in the shadows and avoid any kind of encounter. In Dayz if you meet an hostile group the fight is more balanced, is a real gunfight while in EVE Online is ALWAYS all against one, and becomes only a matter of time and luck if you die or live.
In Dayz is very easy to kill someone with better gear than yours.
In Dayz you can live without any special features. You only need some matches, a hatchet and you can live forever. Also only surviving is interesting because you have to find food and water and this implies an interaction with the world of Dayz.
Finally, there is no endgame in Dayz … you just have to survive as long as possible. No matter the equipment you own … what matters is the minute that you can be in the game without dying.
This is Dayz … this is my story
During the eighth day I explored the area around the castle of Zeb and before the sun went down, I was back at the castle. During the approach I have heard several gunshots in the distance but I could not understand the direction.
I approached the castle from the south and I had a strange feeling. I prefered to double-check before entering the building and decided to hide behind a wall for a better look. As I lean over to watch the entrance to the main tower I saw two men out. I have been detected and immediately I heard one of them shouting: “FRIENDLY (?)”. I do not know if it is a question or a statement but I didn’t lose precious time and started to run down the slope. I’m running trying to get away as much as possible. I come near a large pine tree and hid among its branches and remain motionless. I try to see if they followed me.
A shot from the castle! Far away from me. two. three. many shots.
I’m confused. But I decide to stay hidden for a while.
After some time I have decided to move.
I approached the castle with great care. I do not hear anything. Before entering I must scan the outer perimeter. Nothing. I decided to enter the tower. Moving slowly, checking every corner, I climb the stairs looking up. On the first floor there are two bodies lying on the ground.
I absolutely have to check the roof. Who killed those two is probably still on the roof. I climb the stairs slowly. There’s a body on top of the stairs. Another dead. I turn to check the entire roof. Another body.
There was a fierce gunfight.
While checking bodies I think what might have happened and I come to a conclusion.
At the same time that I was being seen by the two who were leaving the tower there were two others who came from the north. They have heard the shout “FRIENDLY” and approached the tower. The two that came out of the tower are felt surrounded by three (me and the other two from the north) and have decided to barricade themselves in the tower. There was a shootout between the four as I walked away. The last one left alive was probably bled to death.
Those four were well equipped and I have trouble figuring out what to get.
I took lot of AK ammunition and I took a lee enfield that I put in the Czech Backpack . I am fully charged and I decide to spend the night outside the castle.
What a surprise!
I spent a whole day in the village of miskino in company with several zombies and it was not a nice experience, but in certain situations it would be better not complain.
I remembered that to the east of my position there is a castle that I could go and visit … maybe I’ll find something interesting. I set out when the sun still has not risen and quickly walk on for many miles without meeting anyone.
I stop to explore the buildings of Rogovo and one of those I find a Winchester with 15 shots. I have an AK Cobra with 2 magazines for a total of 60 shots but the AK is very noisy and every shot is heard miles away. The Winchester is a nice weapon but finally I choose to keep the AK Cobra.
I come near the castle of Zub and I expect a long and tiring climb. The castle stands on a steep hill and consist of two towers and a perimeter wall. The climb is strenuous and is much more than normal because I decided not to get off the road but on the south side, through the forest.
I look around in search of my reward … nothing interesting. Only some ammo and a few cans.
I console myself with the wonderful view. Tomorrow will decide what to do.
At dawn of the fifth day, after eating and drinking, I decide to go to Mishkino, a village that given its location should not attract a lot of bandits.
I decide to take it easy and travel slowly. I did not have cans of beans and almost no water, it’s better not to waste energy. Once I arrived near the village I settle under a tree in sight of the outer buildings to assess the situation. I spend several hours, motionless, peering into zombies that wander through the buildings. When I decide to get up and go into the village I have sore muscles and a volley from the AKM bursts into the valley. WTF! In a few seconds a dozen zombies are upon me, and I find it hard to shoot them down. The AKM, however, not forgive and in a few tens of seconds are all grounded. This neglect has cost me 3 magazines of AKM.
Finally, within the village, no zombies around, I seized a house and get ready for the night.
The first night in a house. Probably this will be the first and last night I spend in a building at night … the screams of the zombies in the streets do not help you sleep and there was also the visit of someone with a vehicle which has inspected the roads that literally terrified me.
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
I wake up early in the morning, I did not sleep well but sheltered under the branches of the pine I have not suffered much from the cold. I’m thirsty and hungry and I drink from the bottle while controlling Pavlovo with binoculars. Strangely I do not see zombies wandering the streets.
I decide that I should not miss this opportunity and start to get close to the village. Apparently no one around. Checking every corner, checking all the houses … nothing. A rabbit walks beside me and reminds me that I have not eaten. I open my backpack to take the can of beans … I do not find … gone! Stupid! I just throw this out when I was in the forest but then I decided to explore the village. Would be useless and dangerous to go back and search for it. I could probably shoot the rabbits but would draw the attention of the zombies or bandits. I have to go north. Maybe I’ll find some animal in the forest to feed me.
I enter the forest north of Pavlovo and I go slowly because of hunger. I can not find any animals. I strive to move forward. The path becomes increasingly difficult. Finally I arrived at the edge of the forest in view of two buildings. It’s a farm!!…a barn and a pigsty…and many zombies around. I’m hungry and I can not go forward. I must eat something!.
The plan is to explore the two buildings in search of food without being seen by the zombies. I slowly approached the barn, a zombie comes up to me at very short distance. I hold my breath. He is just steps away from me. Luckily he has a damaged eye and can not see me. I am inside the barn with large open doors. If I close the doors would draw the attention of the zombies. I have to work carefully. I find some ammunition, two crossbows and bolts, a bit ‘of morphine, but nothing to eat. I go through a small door and head for the stye.
On the other side of the room I see something on the ground and a door on the right. I move cautiously. WTF only other darts. I enter the room on the right and finally find some cans of beans. Outside I hear the groans of many zombies and I decide to eat immediately, even if the place is not exactly healthy.
Now I must find a way out through dozens of zombies. I go slowly through the door but just off a zombie sees me and starts running towards me. In a few seconds many zombies are upon me. I start to run frantically towards the nearby forest, but several zombies are chasing me. I turn around and start shooting. One of them hurt my arm and started to bleed. They are all on the ground and I look around to see if more come. One zombie is approaching and I hit him in the head from a distance. Quickly I bandage the wound and head for the safety of the forest.
After a long climb, reached the top, I decide to camp and rest.
The devs posted in the official forum this statement:
“A person has gained access to our main email account which have details listed for our FTP’s, etc. He then uploaded a malicious application to the US file host which has since been taken offline.
The file was called dayz_auto_updater.exe This malicious software is lead to be a backdoor / bot. Below is the ThreatExpert report on this file.
ThreatExpert also explains where this malicious application installs / moves its processes to stay hidden within your computer. So if you are a user who has downloaded the .exe called dayz_auto_updater.exe from the US Mirror is to scan their computer against viruses and read the description by ThreatExpert on where to locate this if your Virus detector does not pick it up.”
So if you downloaded dayz_auto_updater.exe take immediate action.
I just want to clarify that I have recommended in THIS post to download DayZ Updater and this is NOT in any way related with the dayz_auto_updater.exe that was uploaded in the official DayZ repository. DayZ Updater is safe as far as i know.
I must do it..I know DayZ is a dark surviving horror game, it scare all the gamer a lot..but..but..it’s also full of fun. I will post here some of the funnest articles, video and so on.
This is massive fun!! Really massive!! I love you Drift0r!
those guys are really awesome…please contact me i really want to coop with you!!
..During the night I could not sleep for more than 2 hours in a row and I thought about what to do. I have good equipment and among the things found yesterday on the two bodies were also an ax and some matches. I can light a fire if I need. A tent would be better than fire, you do not see it from afar and keeps you warm during the night but for now I adapt myself to sleep under the boughs of a pine. I hope I never get sick.
The original plan was to go to the military base to look for a better weapon but now there is no reason to risk. The coast is known to be a high risk area where there are many bandits lurking. I spend several minutes studying the map to decide the new destination. I will go north.
From the forest south of Pavlovo I will go to the north-east towards Zelenogorsk. On the outskirts of town I will turn to the northeast in the direction of a deer stand. After crossing the main road I will go north through the forests..no zombies and no bandids..i hope.
