    I dont see much point in continuing to host a beta server. Seems like the community has plateud and is on the downward slide until standalone. Hackers played a large part in killing this mod in its current state, but also the open endness/lack of a real endgame makes play boring and pointless once u collect a few weapons.

    Hes right, on a server with battle eye I could spawn tons of choppers but once I was in one for a bit, I got banned. Hacked shit isn't something you wanna mess with unless the server doesn't have battle eye and isn't on the hive.

    I'd lean towards sob story. I don't think there is a way to tell what weapon you actually killed someone with. As far as Rocket had made it sound, they can tell what your character saves with, and if you save with a hacked weapon it flags you. they might decide to keep a closer eye on your character/account at that point. But thats as far as it goes, unless I assume they start seeing other strange things.

    But yeah I don't think that Battleye can look for anything beyond scripts. But global bans do suck, like I told Kevin when he got banned. I won't hack for anyone, unless they are buying me a boxed copy of the game, I'm not even risking having a game stuck on my Steam forever being banned.

    Spawning hacked in things and actually running the scripts is most likely what got you banned, not using them. I used a hacked AS50 for a month and wasn't even kicked from a single server.
    We drove around that spawned in Ural that one day for like 30 min and no one got kicked either.

    LARS is a bandit in Electro that will chase you and shoot you with a shotty regardless of where you are. Whether you have 4 buildings between you or not. beware.

    Sheesh, it's hard to chime in when it's the middle of a work day. Personally, I couldn't care less about server traffic as long as we all get and have what we want. I don't frequent any other servers, what would be the point? Fortunately, the white truck and the UAZ are still there for the moment.

    Yes it has, maybe erocker can set the time back alittle as well were it gets daylight at lunch time and is daylight until 12PM?? OR daylight at 1PM to 1AM EST? this way most the the traffic will be in the afternoon til around 1AM EST. I know it didn't start getting daylight until I got home at 5:30PM yesterday in the server. I think the table below will help picking times

    *EDIT*

    OMG I just tested a Private hive server and I joined the server in under 25 seconds and had NO desyncs at all. You even start out with a pistol/Map

    Yea but 6PM is when it STARTS getting light and most people I have seen do not play after 1AM or so. changing it were it still somewhat light after 1PM to 1AM would be quite feasible

    True, true. Having it light longer during the daytime hours, though, would mean a lot more traffic, which would mean a lot more people roaming the countrysides, which would mean it would be much more likely for ding dongs to find and steal all of our precious shit. The way the ping is set up, even foreigners that are looking for daytime servers can't play on it.

    knowing themailman it will last all of 20 seconds before he decides crashing it and killing us all is more fun than flying it around properly.

    I have been playing the private hive server today and in this world there is some shitty people. I spawned after getting murdered in electro so I take off to zelenogorsk. Well I get there and I see a survivor with a hatchet fight off zombies so I go close and tell him I am friendly and I will help him. Well I proceed to shoot most of the zombie when I get hatcheted from behind! WTF so now I am bleeding and have zombies EVERY WHERE! I finally loose them and hide. After having to run around I only had 2K blood left after bandaging. So then I turn around and with all the ammo in the G17 I had shoot this guy and he starts bleeding. I then call him a "Fucktard and hope you die faggot" I then goto the grocery store and try to heal up with food. This jackass attracts the WHOLE FUCKING TOWN of zombies and runs into the grocery store whacks me again with the fucking hatchet and I pass out while watching the zombies kill him and me at the same time..
