    Perhaps if you made some of the NPCs Militaristic and Friendly as long as you dont shoot at them? Such as a Military patrol that clears out zombies from time to time when they come across them but wont open up on the player so long as you dont open up on them. If you do open up on them, all the AI NPCs will deem you hostile. They would also give you 2 chances to not open up on them. AKA you could kill up to 2 of them (each time a message displays to stop killing friendly AI) after which a message would display that all the NPCs are gunning for you. And then all the NPCs hunt you. Also, some NPCs would just be hostile in general. They could also attack the friendly AI patrols too.

    I just read this in a PC Gaming magazine:

    "Although hard to verify, a post on a vbulletin board was interesting. The user set up a Quake 3 server with 16 AI bots on it, and left it running for four years. Because the bots learn to re-use successful tactics, he was intrigued to find out what they'd tought each other in the 35,000 hours they'd been at war and looked forward to SAS-grade competition. In fact, they weren't fighting at all. Instead they were standing there, watching as he walked around each map. He managed to galvanise them into action by picking up a gun and shooting one, at which they all clubbed him to death, despite it being a free-for-all deathmatch. Quake 3 bots took less than four years to discover what humanity has failed to figure out in a fair few millenia. Now who said gratuitously violent video games don't teach us anything?" NG

    I just found a patrol in the Brandon's server, shot one for his gun and got wiped out:laugh:

    Most of the time i just end up running from zombies, the pistol you get on spawn is pretty much useless, once you run out of ammo you are screwed. I did find a machete yesterday though, but ended up getting attacked by two zombies and bled out.

    They have nice weapons and gear, we need to kill/rob them. maybe the best thing to do is just follow them, they will clear an area, then you can go scavenging un molested.

    The other thing is not knowing were you are on the map, could you add that in please Brandon?

    Thanks.

    Sorry for being so awkward, but I do like this and want to enjoy it, instead of spending most of my time, running or bleeding.

    Way too much AI. Like everywhere, it's nuts.

    i think the point of dayZ was an abandoned wasteland where stealth and exploration were key.

    spamming stuff everywhere and filling it with AI kinda changes the game a lot compared to vanilla's 'you spawn with nothing, hahahaha' attitude

    I'm thinking of starting a DayZ Invasion 1944 server. run it on one of the I44 maps or something. I've been watching Band of Brothers again.

    Today if I have some down time at work I will try to lower AI spawns. My whole intent was to give players something other than fighting zombies and finding loot. Erocker when you get a chance PM me and give me some suggestions on other scripts if you could. We had about 10 people in the server last night after I changed the server name to reflect the mods it has.

    Tigger posted above. Also in turn of asking erocker for suggestions, I am all ears on what the server needs because I would like to make the community happy on what the server has so any suggestions I am all ears.

    Also if you want to add things/vehicles to the server (not custom vehicles or buildings since they have to be injected in to the dayz files) I have a tutorial you can do below in your arma2/dayz 3d/2d editor and then just submit them here and I will review the missions as they are created.

    Before starting these instructions, go to dayz commander and click settings and then click launch DayZ so it loads arma2 with dayz mod installed.

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. At the main menu of DayZ press <ALT + E>. Select your world [World].

    2. Once you are in the 3D editor do the following:

    Place "Center (F10)" anywhere on map and hit OK.
    Place "Group (F2)" anywhere on map and hit OK.
    Place "Unit (F1)" anywhere on map and hit OK.
    Your mission can be saved now!

    3. Find anywhere you like on the map, <RIGHT CLICK> and select "default camera" (takes you to 3d view).

    4. Upper-Right Menu select "Vehicle (F5), double click the ground, select the vehicle/building to place, hit OK.

    5. <LEFT CLICK> and hold yellow circle for object and drag to place. Hold <SHIFT> while holding <LEFT CLICK> to rotate. Hold <ALT> while holding <LEFT CLICK> to raise or lower object.

    6. Hover over the object and hit <DELETE> to remove.

    7. Save your progress as "User mission" under name [Your Mission Name]

    "%userprofile%\Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\[Profile Name]\missions\[Your Mission Name].[World]\mission.sqf"

    Please ZIP the whole mission folder that you save with all the custom stuff and upload here for me to review. I need the whole save folder so I can load the mission in the editor to make sure there are no glitches in the building/vehicles you add.

    Overwatch maybe?
    Best mod all around and I´am pretty sure the server wont be so "deserted" :cool:

    I have a "large" group of friends who play Dz very often and we could give your server a try, but we only play BP or OverW.
