    Yea, I think that's more of an issue with the game being alpha than much to do with playstyle.. the optins just don't exist yet.. Pretty much it's "run around and horde stuff"
    or "go take the stuff you horded and cause havoc"..
    Being nice is good and all but I get shot more often than not for trying to be nice..
    Even people who let me walk right up to t em might shoot me after I bandage them or something similar. XD. I

    had 6 bloodpacks yesterday thouh, like 4 epis and 3 morphine..lol.. Crap ton of food and drinks too. I was totally medic'd out.. then I found the Fal and the NV fal.. I had to empty out the backpack to carry em both. :)
    I hope it was worth it.

    I hear you, it's happened to me before... Hence why I've been just killing folks on site. I'm thinking, I'll rename my character (to include the word Medic) and having a couple well armed guys with me wouldn't hurt. :D

    With ArmA II + Operation Arrowhead it's around 14 gigs.

    How would he get it free and how would it make the drive foot print smaller? If you get Arma II demo and then the Operation Arrowhead expansion the graphics and everything look really bad for the mod.

    That's what I was talking about, when you download it, it's called arma II free. If he wants he could torrent the entire game lol

    Lower quality textures = less megabytings

    Do not talk about torrenting software illegally. This is your warning from me. :)

    You going to pick this up MailMan?

    Don't think I want THE zombie magnet escorting me around! Lol! :laugh:

    Seriously though, I'm going to start doing this once I get a bike, motorcycle, or atv. Though, atv's are pretty horrible in this game.

    well, TBHo, after I was packing the AK, zombies seemed to stay away from me more maybe after I killed enough of them they spread the word. ^_^ I like packing big guns these days but if the situation calls for it I would pack a crossbow. eg. I run out of AK ammo.

    Once it comes down in price I might if everyone is still playing it. Also 14 gigs is steep.

    Get used to that. Games are only getting larger as technology gets better. I doubt Steam will include this game with their summer sale as it's their most popular selling game right now. One can hope I suppose.

    Yeah it surprised us, but was awesome to see, and him riding in on the bike into our zombie massacre, it was a hilarious scene. I told him he had some sweet wheels, must be really nice to have a bike, don't need gas and easier to hide than a car, I was a bit jealous.

    Two locations I know of where bikes spawn. Balota (not sure exactly where) and in Cherno, right behind/next to the church. Yes, I would love to get one. Like you mentioned, no gas and they are hidden easily. To fix them you need two tires and a scrap metal.
    1Kurgan1 says thanks.

    1st time I got gunned down I was wondering why. And it could have been the dude just being a jerk, but it might not have helped than I picked a zombie skin for my face and I was crouched over a body when he shot me (lol). Though not many zombies wear aviators and wield hatchets, so not sure if it was confusion or just him being a dick. Either way I went with Connor Macleod face now just to be safe.

    I'd be surprised if it comes down, $30 for 2 games is pretty cheap, though maybe it will go on sale soon. But Arma II sales have gone up 500% since this mod came out, so putting it on sale when it's selling like hot cakes doesn't make a ton of sense from a business standpoint.

    I'll have to check Balota, I don't want to really venture into Cherno or Electro yet. And are those the same tires that go on vehicles or are there other tires for bikes?

    A year ago it didn't have a mod thats more popular than the game itself. Supply and Demand.

    Thats what my point was, I just don't expect it to drop in price for a while.
