    That's a pretty good compliment, I'll take stalwart any day, and Utter is one of the few good guys.

    I have a red car with about 8 tents. Please leave the car its full of weapons if you need one and my tents have a ton of supplies if needed.

    *Edit*

    Hope its just the server but I just logged in to check my base and EVERYTHING is gone! I hope erocker can restart the server or give someone temp admin so they are able too.

    Question?

    I'm on Klen Hill, where the ATV spawns and there are two unnamed snipers just standing there with pistols out. Both facing same direction (not each other). Is this a bug?

    I can't establish communication and despite having killed 304 zombies over the past two weeks, I've still not even shot at a human. So I logged out to check out if these are actual in game AI bandits?

    I've crawled within ten feet but they just don't do anything. Would like their rifles ;)

    Any ideas?

    You should check and see if you can loot them. There are no AI bandits in the game, only zombies and real players. Sometimes when people die they stay standing in the spot they died, perhaps they both died in a gunfight, but shouldn't have a weapon in their hands. They will hold their hands out like they are holding a weapon but aren't.

    Also no mobs ever spawn up there, unless there is a downed helicopter spawning zombies, otherwise that area is safe.

    Well it seems it was my birthday. After seeing a lot of people getting killed on screen messages i realised it was impossible these fellows were real (quiet server, 5 people on, three died and I'm still looking at two more, plus me = 6???). So i took a shot knowing they weren't players.

    Nothing happened (except a blood spray). They still stood there.

    So I went up and looted them....

    :D

    AS 550(?) anti-material rifle.
    Silenced+scoped M4A1
    Ghillie suit
    GPS
    Night Vision and rounds a plenty.

    Karma for 300+ zombie kills.

    No way - The past few servers I've been on all kick for accessing server control (then ban).

    Having looked up a lot of scripts now it's quite depressing how many hacks there are. I mean, the old C:S scripts for latency reduction were kosher but kill all player scripts???

    Use this to head for a barn with some goodies:

    http://dayzdb.com/map#3.063.079

    Honestly, once you have a hatchet you're set. If you're being chased by Zombies, find any flight of stairs run up and make a stand. Z's are piss easy to kill when you're up stairs (they have to walk). Likewise, inside any large building, they'll walk at you, not run.

    Inside decent Barns you'll normally find: Crossbows, Rifles or shotguns. Crossbow bolts are re-usable so always search the body for the bolt sticking out.

    Stay away from big towns on a busy server, you will be killed by other players. If you're lucky enough to get a server with 'side channel' press the "." until it comes up on screen - at least that way you can attempt to make friends.

    If you can, locate a small town with a supermarket - you may find larger backpacks there plus provisions obviously.

    Correction... Once you find a MAP you are set! Not knowing were you are is a PAIN! The best places to find a map for a newbie is cherno/Electro Supermarkets. Use the DayzDB map to try and get to one. If there is no map, then farm the place until one spawns.

    By farming meaning take everything that is in the market outside and dump in the street then wait about 10 minutes and stuff will respawn in the market. This same technique can be used in most places like firehouses to get better weapons.

    Ive got a crowbar! And found a jerry can. And robbed an afk guy standing in the middle of no where (he was a recent respawn). But it was dark and I got sick of pitch black and turning my light on and off. So I logged and quit for today

    Use dayz commander and set to day time only servers. It will show you a list of servers that are day light in time so you will be able to get around easier. I don't recommened someone learning the game to run around at night, hell I almost died yesterday due to it being night time and I left my NVGs at base camp. I walked 6K out of 10K trip and got hit by a zombie that I couldn't see and it made me start bleeding and just my luck I had no bandages. Allen (jarvis) came to my rescue and took me to my base camp. Then I was patched up with NVG and a ride!

    Yeah I gotta find someone I know who plays and team up with them. I've been watching all these videos of groups of 2-4 people stalking or hunting other groups of players and it looks epic.

    Once you get a map you can pick the military/firehouses for nice weapons. also there is a full map below of all the heli crash sites that have NICE weapons that can only be found there. Also watch out for zombies around the heli.

    Yeah I've almost figured out all the controls. So I'll started heading there once I figure out how to equip the crowbar rofl.

    I honestly hate the crow bar but what you can do is right click on it to take it out of your tool belt then it will equip it then press R to reload it LOL then swing away!

    Yea you have to reload the crow bar and hatchet due to the game not having a melee weapon so its technically act like a very short range gun.

    Thanks for the offer but I left your stuff alone. :) Did you manage to get your stuff back?

    Went to the coordinates Jarvis/Moore told me and ended up in a camp with like 15ish tents! I liberated some stuff from those tents. Hope it isn't anyone's stuff here. :laugh:
