EvilMinion added a comment to T112322: Getting paper when unpacking some ammo packs.

Maybe it's the games way of saying "This box is empty."

Edit: I got both bullets and paper when unpacking so this might indeed be the case.

EvilMinion added a comment to T112281: Character lost his pants, jacket,west and some items when connected in to the server..

Sounds like you were robbed. Either by a patch that made significant changes to those items, some connection issues to the hive or by another player who found your body after you logged off and decided he wanted some of your items (while also being kind enough to let you live).

EvilMinion added a comment to T112224: Weapons without magazines should be able to be reloaded by pressing 'R'.

I think there should not be a dedicated reload button at all. Instead you should be able to reload by putting a magazine or pile of bullets in your hotbar and pressing this particular button.

EvilMinion added a comment to T112210: Status in the Inventory is not up to date.

Got this without exploiting any game mechanics. Once after spawning where my character had not status and did not get hydration from a well (until I relogged which caused the survivor to vomit - which suggests not only the indicator but also the effects are bugged) and later when I realized that I had not eaten or drunk for a very long time but still had the bright green indicators (and probably the regeneration effects as well).

EvilMinion added a comment to T111602: Animals are either not respawning properly, or not spawning at all on EXP .57.

I found animals last week and I found bones and tanned leather just yesterday so it seems there are a few animals. Also the improved flight behavior might cause them to avoid players more effectively and move to places where you previously could not find them (there are way more players traveling inland in 0.57).

However, judging by the zombies it seems like NPC numbers are greatly reduced in the current update and/or respawning might now work properly.

I had the opposite: Hunger and thirst were working fine until the server restarted. Logging back in my state was frozen and relogging did not solve the issue.

Then my game froze and crashed (memory crash). After restarting hunger/thirst kicked in.

I was either baking or eating a baked apple when the server restart happened.

EvilMinion added a comment to T111427: Implement notoriety system to flag innocent, criminal and murderers.

Wait... why would you sanctionise murderers? It's a legit playstyle and not really destructive as it creates villains who make the game interesting and add threat.

What needs to be changed is players having no reason to be friendly or cooperate. So there should be more rewards for this without artificially punishing the killers. They are part of the game as well.

May 11 2016, 5:52 AM · DayZ
EvilMinion added a comment to T111427: Implement notoriety system to flag innocent, criminal and murderers.

Artifical fixed morality systems do not work as they just codify a particular behavior and can be abused (see first comment). Not to mention that it tends to give way too much free information when meeting a complete stranger.

So instead of having the game put a label on players according to their actions we should have better ways to identify characters or players and let real notoriety take over.

In 0.57 it says "Long wooden stick" and that's something you should actually get from every tree.

EvilMinion added a comment to T111155: cooking pot takes 2x2 slots but cooking pot on gas stove 1x2.

Thats a general issue with attaching items to each other. Guns are always the same size regardless of having a buttstock/scope/suppressor or not.

Combining a gas stove, gas canister and cooking pot/frying pan will always result in a 1x2 item even though the parts are 1x2, 1x/2 and 2x2. You can even store items inside the pot/pan.

May 11 2016, 5:42 AM · DayZ
EvilMinion added a comment to T111122: .45 ACP rounds aren't spawning in 0.56.

This might be because .45 rounds/boxes are classified as western military loot only (~M4 spawns) while the magazines for FNX45 and UMP are classified as eastern (= normal) military loot.

Did you find any 5.56x45mm rounds/boxes? They should spawn in the same places.

The human body also has been shot only once and death occured. Damage in real life is an extremely complicated thing.

A single bullet has the capacity to kill and thats how it should be in DayZ as well. However, I agree it should neither be guaranteed nor easy to kill with a single bullet.

EvilMinion added a comment to T111071: search for apples and berries need better balancing or feedback for better immersion.

I think it should be a continuous action that drops fruits after random intervals (exp-distributed) without being canceled in the process.

The constant repetition of "press key to search" and "I have not found a thing." is driving people crazy.

Even better would be some kind of limitation that stops a people from getting unlimited apples/berries from a single tree and encourages visiting multiple berry bushes/apple trees (currently one tree is just as effective as a whole plantation).

Or a gathering minigame that keeps players occupied and rewards them according to their performance.

EvilMinion added a comment to T110930: Some items still expand inventory space.

While this makes sense for hard containers like pots I think clothes should take up less space when empty. Maybe give them two states: a "stored" state where they occupy much less space but do not provide any and a "filled" state where they either occupy as much space as they provide (very thin clothes only) or even more (thicker clothes).

And of course combining items should change size (gas canister + gas stove, gun + buttstock/scope, etc.).

EvilMinion added a comment to T110662: So I just got VAC banned from DayZ..

Bohemia cannot provide support on VAC bans.

Also it is perfectly possible that you did not get your VAC ban in DayZ (apparently not true as DayZ doesn't seem to share VAC bans with other games).

May 11 2016, 5:27 AM · DayZ
EvilMinion added a comment to T110662: So I just got VAC banned from DayZ..

Why should they help? If you cheat in another game and VAC bans you - you do deserve it. Being a cheater that does not cheat in DayZ still makes you a cheater.

Saying Bohemia has something to do is like blaming your car manufacturer for losing your drivers license.

May 11 2016, 5:14 AM · DayZ
EvilMinion added a comment to T110266: SUGGESTION: Non-ruined gear should not disappear after death.

I can see the logic behind this - it's more authentic and does not put you on as much of a timer after spotting (or causing) a dead body. A more authentic solution: The corpse attracts scavengers (crows, rats, zombies etc.) that can be driven off or killed but otherwise gradualy ruin the gear. To avoid people picking up their own stuff the respawn should put them far away from their corpse(s).

Freshies having an easier time to find decent loot is actually an argument for despawning though.

EvilMinion added a comment to T110012: 0.55 Update complain.

I played .55 on a private server. Did not meet many players but I did not need to as the struggle to survive kept me occupied. It was fun even though gathering has pretty boring mechanics right now.

Then the "private hive fix" came and the server disabled persistence. My struggle for survival ended abruptly as I found tons of loot everywhere. As did my attachment to my character. I fooled around a little. It felt just like .54 - boring unchallenging easymode. This character suicided today.

EvilMinion added a comment to T110007: Player dies far too easily from energized and hydrated after eating just one piece of raw meat.

"Having not known that "forcing" your character to throw up can sort it out..." -> It doesn't. That's a myth originating in an interface bug where throwing up would hide the "sick" state.

The last time I got poisoned ingame I actually lasted a long time and eventually recovered completely without even falling unconscious (and this was chemical poisoning which is much worse). Maybe you got really unlucky and caught salmonellosis or cholera?

Given your outrage I just assume you did keep yourself bright green energized and at least dark green hydrated. Maybe you were on low blood and/or health though.

No reason at all as we got the easy to make and highly effective stone knife you basically got as spawn equipment as you can make it at every beach.

I even think that with the addition of hand drill and improvised torch (0.57) the flashlight has outlived its purpose and can be removed from the fresh spawn character (maybe replace it with a single use chemlight in case you spawn in the middle of the night).

I don't think you should find modern NATO weaponry in a Museuam (let alone functioning firearms). But medieval weapons like swords, axes, maces and maybe even armor is a possibility. If it has to be firearms they shouldn't be newer than World War II.

I think a good location for a museum is any city (Skalisty Island is way too rural) but I would rule out the spawning cities - maybe one of the northern ones (Novaya Petrovka, Severograd, Kamensk, Novodmitrovsk if the spawns get removed) or as a replacement for the Zelenogorsk military base.

Even though the guns might be mostly (found my Makarov with magazine in Cherno) military loot that doesn't mean the ammo has to be as well.

Being able to find .380 rounds in civilian areas gives weapons using them a distinct advantage and make the dynamics and balance more interesting by having guns that require to go into military areas to find them but can be supplied from civilian areas.

Its basically like an inverse SKS - nothing wrong with this.

Because peeking fucks up the gameplay. So you basically have to decide if you want better gameplay without asymmetric vision or if you want to see your character in third person.

Items affected: any firearm, binoculars, rangefinder, any kind of magazine or clip - basically everything you don't want to lose.

Items can be retrieved one or two at a time by swimming to the spot you lost your gear.

Sounds like the "leg breaking bug" to me. Did this happen in some builing upstairs?

Had the same on experimental before. There was a shotgun in my hand and an Ak on my back. I drank something from by canteen - dropping and picking up my shotgun in the process. But then it seemed like I was unable to kove far away.
There was some "border" that made my shotgun disappear - moving back resulted in it reappearing in my hands but as soon as I crosses "the line" it was gone.

No need for this - currently you can carry a shitload of stuff without any drawbacks. I would rather like to see a weight system introduced that affects movement when carrying a lot.

To be able to carry more tools etc. there should be other solutions:
(1) Team up with somebody and share tools.

> increase tool rarity and durability

(2) Find a vehicle or tent to store your items in.

> implementation of vehicles and persistence

(3) Carry a container in your hands (movement and weight penalties apply)

> allow carrying backpacks etc. in hands

I can confirm this is linked to character desync - its the same as the "zombies hit through walls" bug.

EvilMinion added a comment to T104499: Fireplace cooking time is ridiculous.

What about not staring at the steaks but rather do something else in the meantime? If you know the approximate time you can come back once steaks are almost done.

From a game perspective it does make a lot of sense - while cooking your are bound to one place with light and smoke possibly giving away your location. its a moment of vulnerability that needs to be compensated. The reward is cooked meat. You should not demand the reward without taking the risk.

However interactivity and progression would greatly improve the feature. Unrealistically short cooking times because kids get bored and want quick action are not.

Voting down because the amount too cook is perfectly fine - 2 or even 5 minutes are ridiculously low. Though I think meat should not move from cooked to burned state that fast.

Maybe 8-10 minutes to cook and 1-2 minutes to burn would be better - could also depend on the fire: Using one stick to fuel the fire should greatly increase cooking time compared to a fire fuels by five pieces of firewood.
