RobertNeville added a comment to T110733: capacity vest can store multiple other vests - illogical.

Upvoted.

A good way to fix the issue would be to redesign inventory space, so that e.g. the Olive High Capacity Vest has six 2x1 slots instead of a single 3x4 slot.

And/or to allow garment A to be put inside garment B only if A is empty.

RobertNeville added a comment to T105220: Unable to choose character / Invisible character in the DayZ main screen.

Problem solved. Following some suggestion from the Forum, I had set up DayZ to run with the following options, to try to improve game performance:
-nosplash -skipIntro -world=empty

Removing the options restored the normal behaviour.

Thank you for your support.

I've seen this happening with lit chemlights, they shine but everything around goes dark.

RobertNeville added a comment to T103719: Items take too much space in the inventory.

I agree that you should be able to fold clothes to take less space in the inventory -- only if they're empty of course.

RobertNeville added a comment to T103538: [PRIMARY REPORT] Character cools down/gets hypothermic too quickly.

Wool coat, ushanka, autumn hunter pants, all in worn or pristine condition, and still getting hypothermia in a sunny day.

Not only this is unrealistic but more ways to heat up should be added to the game. Perhaps stoves or hot packs. Actually if I'm not mistaken the only way to warm up is to build a fire which requires:

  • matches
  • paper or rags
  • kindling
  • wood which requires an axe and the correct tree

My last dozen characters survived less than half an hour. The game is barely playable as it is now.

RobertNeville added a comment to T103165: Standing above water behaves as if in water.

Same for me. I got the "completely soaked" status just by running a few seconds on the pier in Kamyshovo, in front of the warehouse with two big doors.

RobertNeville added a comment to T102902: Zombies are omniscient.

Aren't they supposed to be infected? Zombies have a better sense of orientation than special-forces soldiers.

Zombies seem to have a perfect knowledge of all the buildings and surroundings. If you stay in front of a window on the upper floors of the hospital for a few seconds, zombies are able to spot you far away from the street and immediately find their way to the hospital, up the stairs, through the right corridors to you. Experimented today.

Zombies should probably run towards the building when they spot a person inside it, perhaps enter the building, but then wander around for a while and cease "attack mode" unless they can keep line of sight with the person.

It's not a ping issue -- I play only on servers with a small ping and still have this problem.

May 11 2016, 12:10 AM · DayZ
RobertNeville added a comment to T101913: Broken Zombie Hitbox (Weapon goes through Zeds).

Same for me -- perhaps 5% of my blows hit the target.

The 0.49 patch really messed up the melee system. Seriously, this issue must be addressed ASAP. The game is unplayable as it is.

RobertNeville added a comment to T101909: Endless stream of attacking zombies.

Even a thousand zombies is not infinite. By the way, I think it would be great to have hordes of zombies attacking. But here you have ONE zombie attacking you infinite times.

  1. kill the zombie;
  2. zombie respawns;
  3. the same zombie reattacks you;
  4. repeat from point 1.

RobertNeville added a comment to T101909: Endless stream of attacking zombies.

Yeah, a similar thing happened to me yesterday. I was in the top floor of a house, badly hurt and attacked by zombies. I could barely move and attack as I had been pushed through the wall by the zombie's hits (a known glitch). As I killed them, new zombies (always of the same type) were always climbing the stairs to attack me again. There must have been a queue in front of the house! Ridicolous. I was saved by the server's restart.

RobertNeville added a comment to T101900: Ringing when combining items.

For info, it's the sound of combining bullets in a larger heap. The same sound is being used to group any other kind of object e.g. rags.

RobertNeville added a comment to T100896: Melee is not working very well/at all.

I've noticed this too while using a fireaxe to hit (or better, try to hit...) zombies. Playing on 0.48. It's a major issue and should be fixed ASAP.

RobertNeville added a comment to T100893: Hitboxes on Zeds and autospawn zeds.

It seems to be worse on 0.48 stable. Zombie instant respawn is a big issue, too.

RobertNeville added a comment to T100406: A dropped item appears in the correct position but in an identical room nearby.

No I didn't. But today I had the same issue when in a military barrack and dropped a few items that disappeared. Then I discovered they were in the adjacent room which was identical to the one I was in. The items were in the exact position they were supposed to be when I dropped them, only in the wrong room!
I have seen this happening also in a barn.
Probably this bugreport should be renamed as "A dropped item appears in the correct position but in an identical room nearby" and/or merged.

RobertNeville added a comment to T97342: Zombies too resilient to body hits from melee weapons.

Same for me. I see a huge difference with the new 0.49 patch. Beforehand, I could fight zombies easily. Now perhaps 1 of my blows in 20 strikes the zombie.

With the previous versions of the game I've had the same character for 40 hours of play. Now my last dozen of characters were able to survive perhaps for 15 minutes. A single encounter with a zombie results in death. VERY frustrating.

I will stop playing until this issue is adressed, as the game is unplayable.

RobertNeville added a comment to T97342: Zombies too resilient to body hits from melee weapons.

Tried today the 0.49 and the zombie invulnerability has worsened up to the point of being ridiculous.

Another player and I kept hitting the same zombie with a pitchfork and bare hands; after 30+ blows he was still up and fighting. Died, respawned, and found a pristine biker jacket. A female zombie hit me a couple of times and she immediately broke my arm. I was able to knock her out, then she insta-respawned. Knocked her again, she insta-respawned again and killed me.

If any single encounter with a zombie results in a death the game is unplayable.

RobertNeville added a comment to T95649: Sawn-off shotgun deleted from inventory upon logging in.

The video by WOBO is great, thanks.

If WOBO is right, the devs should make the game so it saves the position of objects in inventory, hence fixing bug# 8070 and killing two birds with one stone.

RobertNeville added a comment to T95281: Ruined Items Probability from Player/Environment Interaction is Unrealistic.

I 100% agree with Tahatton for the unrealistic zombie damage.
Just had my wool coat degraded from worn to ruined by a single punch from a male zombie. (And he almost broke my leg too although I was fully energized, hydrated and healthy.)
Clothes should be degraded by one step per hit, maximum. More resistant clothes such as coats or jackets should be able to take two hits before being degraded by one step.

RobertNeville added a comment to T94717: Server Favorites and Server History disappeared.

RobertNeville added a comment to T91592: Instant Death Glitch (Inside Buildings on 2nd or higher level).

Happened to me too today. I was crouched still in a catwalk inside the lumber mill in Berezino, in a covered position so it's highly unlikely a sniper shot me. Suddenly the screen went black without a noise and got the "My leg is broken." and "You are dead." messages.

Very annoying.

Just while we're in alpha, it should be good to have a message informing you how you died. This would help debug a lot.

RobertNeville added a comment to T91592: Instant Death Glitch (Inside Buildings on 2nd or higher level).

I logged off today at the top of the scaffolding inside the large hangar at the eastern entrance of Stary Sobor. When I logged back in, I was on the ground floor. I was lucky, no death or damage whatsoever.

RobertNeville added a comment to T89714: When dropping loot it sometimes disapears forever.

Bug confirmed. I was running today in the countryside, then dropped an object and it disappeared.

Perhaps it is related to the quick change in position (so the object is dropped somewhere along my path)? In this case if I backtrack I might be able to find it. I haven't tried it, just my 2 cents.

RobertNeville added a comment to T89012: Legs breaking too easily / Fall damage too high.

RobertNeville added a comment to T87203: Night doesn't need to be black and white colouring.

Night is dark for a reason. Modifying the game to be able to walk around in nighttime just like daytime would make day/night transition useless.

DayZ is a very atmospheric and realistic game. You're supposed to find yourself lost in the night and unable to see 2 meters ahead of your nose -- that's the beauty of it. Keep the DayZ night as it is now.

RobertNeville added a comment to T86883: Doors on the floor under you will open.

There's a related bug (quite useful actually!) where you can climb a ladder that's on the outer side of the wall you're facing from inside. This happens in a room on the ground floor of the hospital, and in one of the higher rooms in the fire station.
