    STANDALONE UPDATE *3 Dayz Ago*

    [​IMG]

    Development on the standalone version of the DayZ mod has snowballed into more intense territory than anticipated. DayZ creator Dean Hall has posted an update on the DayZ blog to say that “The experience will be entirely new. There is virtually nothing that has been directly ported from the mod, everything has been redone. This wasn’t our original intention (hence the December deadline) – but it has evolved this way. We’re all glad it has!” Read on to find out what the team’s been tinkering with.

    Hall says that character development is “the absolute core of our current design efforts.” New models for ethnic female characters have been added, and there’s more to come. “Until initial release, the vast majority of our efforts will be with expanding options for developing and customizing your character.”

    Meanwhile, DayZ’s lead programmer is shifting the multiplayer engine to a “server-client MMO mode,” which will add a bit of much-needed stability. If you want to run games for your community, good news: “Private servers will be supported.”

    Designer Ivan Buchta has also rejoined the team after the Greece ordeal, and is working on renovating the DayZ’s island. You can see the results in the latest DayZ screenshots below, spotted by Kotaku

    Random black woman survivor in Soviet block nation after a zombie apocalypse. SO REAL.

    Other then that it looks like Chicago and a town in Fallout had a baby in northern California. Pretty nice.

    Um.. There indeed are black people in "Soviet block nations".

    And that's pretty much the way DayZ has looked since the mod began, granted much nicer looking.

    I'd guess you'd have to play to know these things.

    At best 70,000 according to that link in ALL of Russia. I had more black girls in my home town.

    Still that negates the point you were trying to make of a black person in russia during the zombie apocalypse so that makes it 70K times possible LOL

    Point is it you would be more likely to come across a unicorn in that circumstance then a random black woman in a land full Slavic bandits and flesh eating zombies.

    If it was the US. Sure. No problem. All day.

    Indeed, and one of those lovely black women made it into the game. Woo-hoo!!!

    Seriously though, there's going to be some sort of backstory to the game that isn't revealed yet.

    "X" person from "X" country is in Cheranus to do some sort of work and zombie apocalypse happens. "X" meaning the person playing the game. Since people of all nationalities play games, I suppose Bohemia Interactive wanted to try to cover as many ethnicities as possible.

    There will be littlebirds and crossbows and DEEZ NUUTZ o_O

    Oh no I get what they are doing. I'm not against it. I just thought it was funny looking. It would be like DayZ set in Detroit and you have a Spetsnaz running around. Is it possible? Sure. Just not likely.

    I can't stop laughing after my last post....... Just imagine this older black lady walking through the woods when she comes into a town were zombies are eating people as they scream for help and all she does it turn around and run while yelling in a big southern black voice "AIN'T NO BODY GOT TIME FO DAT!!!"

    Russia or southern Russia is not a likely place for a black woman. You act as if its the US. Its not. They have TONS of Asians and Middle Eastern there. 70,000 black in ALL OF RUSSIA? Really? You think its likely one would be a woman survivor in a Slavic nation run by bandits and zombies? Its a VAST reach at best.

    Im unbanned yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    I stopped hosting my server as it got 40/40 users alot but was always bombed by a hacker.. and with a whitelist it was a consistent 10/40 all day but thats not worth the money.

    So I will def be getting a private hive standalone server up as soon as I see that it's a stable game and worth the money.

    Bout time, now be nice! Get with erocker, he ran a private hive for a while. I would suggest a tavania server with 800 vehicles, part looting, extended weapons and vehicles and custom builds/bases.

    No way I'd host a server again. Not with this mod anyways since there is no fix for hackers and scripters.

    If Arma III comes through, I might get a server for it.
