    Hi folks,

    just making a few suggestions i'd like to see on server.

    1. Daytime only on server.....
    I'm often playing at very unusual times, because i am a Freelancer and have no fixed working hours.
    When playing late at night, it's allways cold and dark.

    2. Destructable vehicles......
    Some players are hoarding any kind of vehicles, and if you find them, it is impossible to destroy them.
    Because destroyed vehicles can spawn new again at random locations for other players wich have none.

    3. No permanent helis for players.....
    With helis it's simply way too easy searching the whole map for bases, wherebouts from players (Z's on ground)
    and vehicles too (see point 2).
    An exception could be helis from missions wich despawn on server restart.

    4. With point 3 in mind, we also could forbid basebuilding in buildings.....
    On most servers using buildings as partial base is not allowed. For obvious reasons.

    any replies and opinions welcome

    Cheers

    Hi Gibbon,

    1: I thought of this, and have yet to edit the necesary files. I'd like to change it to 5 hours daytime one hour nighttime.

    2: All vehicles can be destroyed. I've destroyed many vehicles myself. protip: satchel!

    3: Helicopters are endgame. They are a bit OP however. I will see if there is a way to add a HC rifle to take em down. Also see about limiting the ammount of helicopters to two or so.

    4: Are there a lot of buildables in buildings? I'll take it under advicement.

    Thx for reply Insertcoins,

    i did'nt play DayZ for about 2 years anymore, but as i remember it's was possible to destroy vehicles by simply salvaging the engine, making the vehicle explode.

    Cheers

    Problem is you can only salvage carparts if they are 100%

    But if you shoot at them enough they blow up. In arma everything can be destroyed if you just shoot at it enough ;)

    Hello,
    I do not agree with Gibbon.

    1. Having night on real schedules adds realism and immersion to the game. (This is one of the reasons why I chose to play on this server).

    2. ...

    3. Why not be able to have a helicopter indefinitely, we rarely find a helicopter in good condition with the fuel fully, if we have one it is that we deserved it by spending time to find the parts, the Repair and refuel. If you do not want us to steal your stuff create a base fortify with a maximum obstacle so we do not enter your base.

    4. Why not be able to create a base using a building, it's just a intelligent use of the environment. To have a roof in its base is something not negligible to hide its material, to protect itself from the cold etc.

    Finally, I think that all your suggestions would lead to a decrease of realism on this server. From my point of view there is nothing wrong with using his environment to survive, because, yes it is a survival game. Not seeing much at night, being cold, being able to be spotted by other players because he has helicopters is part of survival.
    It's up to you to find something to remedy anything that disturbs you or else there is another server much less interesting (more arcade) where it does all the time day, where there are restrictions such as you like as " A dead man walking ". So please admin, do not change too much thing and postpone more night, I'm afraid that the server will become boring if you remove this side survival.

    That's my opinion, it's up to you to see. And Gibbon, if you need something to play more easily at night ask me. Thank you for having fixed door Admin. :)


    Bye :)

    heres my views and remember this is just my opinion :

    1: kinda with you, not many players like nighttime, personally only the dead of the night bothers me, dawn dusk and light nights are ok to me, coins can you do what you did on a3 nam server and set it so the moon is bright as feck, but i see from your own post that 5hr day 1 hr night is a decent comprimise if you cant.

    2: shoot it more my friend or just disable the feck out of it to make it uselesss.

    3: heli's is kinda hit and miss, you need some sort of endgame or players get bored to quickly, and tbh they are annoying to keep anyway as if its not 100% they loose fuel very quickly, just shoot it a couple of times and it has to land within 1-2k radius.

    4: news to me that you can build bases in vanilla if im honest, if its epoch style building then yeah maybe as it can block loot from being looted by other players which isnt fair so maybe a ban on mil buildings only :D

    How about custom loadouts for heroes/bandits? Or maybe even hero or bandit levels? I am looking forward for custom loadouts!

    Why? It makes being a hero/bandit much more rewarding and worth it. Mainly because in servers with AI missions, dying and respawning without a map is quite unfortunate, to a quite horrible level.
