    *** THIS IS NOT AN INDICATION THAT DAYZ SA DAYZERO MOD IS BEING WORKED ON. NOR THIS IS AN INDICATION OF DENYING IT **

    So how would you change the game to make it more enjoyable or "Dayzeroish"?
    For the sake of keeping the thread readable, please use a template:

    Issue: <Issue here>
    Resolution: <How would you fix it? No technical knowledge needed.>
    Affects: <How would it affect PVP and and PVE survival?>
    Pros: <List positive effects of the change>
    Cons: <List possible negative effects of the change>

    And if you are replying, use quotes.

    Issue: Sprinting is too fast.
    Resolution: Use already done stamina fix mod or make your own. Stamina needs to deplete faster or not give such an advance in speed.
    Affects: PVP mostly, making sprinting a slower phased. Does decrease PVE survability too.
    Pros: -
    Cons:

    Issue: Too few zombies.
    Resolution: Spawn more zombies.
    Affects: Overall gameplay, zombies are not so hard in SA as they are in mods. Without them the world feels really empty.
    Pros: Easier player spotting, more PVE content.
    Cons: Server FPS.

    Issue: New character needs to eat and drink too much.
    Resolution: Change depletion timers or spawn newbies with higher food and water values.
    Affects: PVP mostly, you can't run to north without dying to dehydration or hunger.
    Pros: More enjoyable start, less stress about finding food immediately.
    Cons: Some HC roleplayers might like it as it is now.

    Issue: Cars are too rare.
    Resolution: Greatly increase the number of spawned cars and make them easier to fix.
    Affects: Everything.
    Pros: More content, more squad interaction, more everything.
    Cons: -

    Issue: Too few real guns and ammo.
    Resolution: Tweak spawn tables alot, more automatic rifles to beaches and more high end (optics, snipers, LMG, etc.) to up north.
    Affects: PVP mostly.
    Pros: Makes the SA combat actually fun, instead of everyone just running around with a pistol and 5 rounds of ammo.
    Cons: Makes low tier guns (which SA has a lot) useless.
    Cons+: Tweaking spawn tables takes a lot of time, trial and error.

    Issue: Helicopters
    Resolution: Add helicopters to DayZero spawn points (and new points on the additional parts of Standalone's Chernarus).
    Affects: PVP, people can travel long distances quickly, e.g. a squad member dies in the north, respawns, gets picked up and is back in action 5 minutes after dying. Also affects hiding ground vehicles.
    Pros: Added gameplay element (some find making a helicopter airworthy to be fun).
    Cons: (biased af opinion so can't find any cons)

    Just gathering information about what should be in the version #1 of DayZ SA Mod.
    There are still quite big holes in the future when it comes to modding SA. Like future BIS-patches and expansions.

    The first step would be just running the SA server with tweaked stats (hunger, loot, vehicles, etc.) and proper admin tools to catch cheaters.

    Guys tell it to the public is it a solid plan and its gonna happend or not ?
    You all know how desperete and lack of dayzero the community is. Its not fun to play with our broken hearts.
    If there will be a public statemnt by Tansien that - yes there will be new SA mod then all ppl will react and behave properly.
    So far we all are just remembering shaddering our hearts about not kept promiss of dayzero christmas revival so we just cant beleivie and go full in with the "just faded vision of maybe mod gona be or not".

  13. If you want a following for this project make it public and completely transparent - people will rally behind it then. If not, people will just see it as another empty promise.

    I really hope you guys do ^^
