    The UAZ is a very naughty vehicle. I caught in in the middle of raping my truck. :(

    What? It respawned back where it was, where I was parked?

    You, Sir, are definitely a credit to something.

    so standalone dayZ is based on arma II, but with updated graphics.


    this is as expected, now to get people to stop talking about arma III

    Fuck yeah, today was a awesome day in DayZ. I repaired a bus, now we have a party bus, I got shot and killed then I found my killers and shot them in their fucking assholes, got almost all my loot back (Just lost a few mags) and I buried their bodies so they don't get their stuff back :) Dat adrenalin
    P.S. Thanks to MT Alex for the rides :3

    Also, look at my bus, my bus is amazing.

    Hey Brandon, did you ever find your red car? The red car I told you about earlier is still there, so I'm not sure if that is your camp or if it belongs to the guy that stole your car. It has two ATVs and three tents with it also.

    Sure. I logged out nearby so just lemme know when you're good to go. Anyone else want to get the second ATV with us? :) If not I'll get my brother to hop on with us and we'll go park it somewhere safe.

    Also, did you want me to hop on TS? Not sure it's safe to say its location on the forum. :laugh:

    It just takes time behind the stick.. Really once you know how to fly you have an idea of the limitations of the vehicle.. Now you can start trying to bend those limits.
    Also I'm still recalibrating my controller for arma since I lost my calibration..oops.. If my thrust isn't set right, I won't even be able to autorotate..

    Just put a chopper in the map editor and go to town. :)
    Try learning how to stop fast for quick insertions and pick ups.
    pulling back full and cycling up to max speed as a brake for example, is a fun one to try..

    If you break to the side while you're doing that, you can turn it sideways in relation to the ground. At that point you can cycle up, to use that upthrust as a stopping mechanism.
    Follow through the rotation until you come full circle and it's basically like stopping on a dime.
    It's a very short stop anyway, would destroy a real chopper in a heartbeat if you tried it likely..lol..
    It helps to have some altitude, dive into it, then pull back and to the side.

    Also, don't get cocky.. Cocky pilots kill their passengers.. I only ever do that in extremely hostile situations.. It's tricky.

    Autorotation is cycling the engine down max when you loose power from being shot for example.. You need forward momentum though or a lot of altitude. When you cycle the engine to the appropriate rpm you'll hear it in the sound of the blades, like a synchronized sound. Then you know you hit the sweet spot.. Once you get close to the ground you cycle up full power and you will gain speed and altitude, just long enough to not smash your chopper into the ground.

    Very common chopper maneuver. I hope I explained it right. It's been a bit. I would hop back into single player and fly it for hours and hours, until I considered myself safe to ace pilot again.

    gl
    :rockout:

    PS:
    lol no the physics are not at all realistic, nor is the control of any of the vehicles in arma..
    if they were, that maneuver I mentioned would not be possible..

    I'm no chopper pilot, I'm a game pilot..lol..
    But a real chopper pilot knows all about the tricks for sure^^.
    Ask him to explain autorotation to you.. <3

    Gah

    ! I'm sorry but that was my brother and I's camp :( we worked hard to get that gear and steal your car...(lol) However, if you haven't noticed when I was on right now there are quite a few hackers and I'd suggest rolling back the server until you fix it because they're car magneting EVERYTHING and killing everyone...among other things, of course...

    Anyone who has read Chickenhawk knows about autorotation, as well as beating off in your bunk:laugh:

    Anyhow, I just spawned in to make sure all our shit was in order, sure enough, it was, but when I was examining the contents of the UAZ, everything in camp disappeared. I'm pretty confident things will reappear after a respawn, it could be because there were 38 out of 40 people on the server.

    The point of the game is to fight, and loot. We fought and looted.

    Nevermind, after talking with PackingPeanut I guess it was just a hacker teleporting every vehicle on the map to one location.

    I beg to differ. The point of the game is to survive a zombie apocalypse. I'm on 450 zombies kills to zero humans. I hunt and loot, without getting seen by other people.

    It's like playing Hitman or Thief. You don't need to kill other players unnecessarily. Sure, if someone takes a shot at you, waste them but I'm a sneaky looter. And my favourite transport is still a bicycle!

    Though last bike i was on glitched my backpack when i rejoined and i lost all my food, water, pistol ammo and bandages. :wtf:

    Fighting the zombies and looting the towns :3 I only hunt people that try to kill me, and the only reason I kill people I see is because no one in this game is trustworthy, they will steal a gun from your pack and shoot you for the rest of your gear. I do try to avoid people though :3

    You don't loot other peoples bases while they are alive (well you can if you want trouble). In a zombie apocalypse finding a setup could be a base for people who have already died, it;s not really an option to leave all that good shit behind.

    Well seems like the red car was jacked again. I should have ran over those tents again! I will give you today but I am coming back to that camp and using hand grenades to blow EVERYTHING up!

    Prepare your ANUS!
