Flares attract zombies, right? What would happen if you dropped a flare 50 meters out from the edge of town, sat about 100 meters back from that, and fired off a CZ (which has a sound radius of 250 meters or something) to lure in zombies while your buddy came in from the other side? Would the flare snag the zombies as they ran towards you, or would they ignore it?

Well I was just in a situation with zombies and flares. I threw a flare after I agrod one due to wanting to fire my gun, not throw a flare like I did. Once I got my pistol out I fired on them, and took down a couple. I noticed 1 get sorta distracted by the flare, kinda staring at it, but he then came after me also. Then I was swarmed and died.

Basically, it seems like the flare has the possibility of distracting one or two, but not for long and not very well if you give them a better reason to go after you.

How often does a server reset?

I decided to team up with a guy last night and we ended up running into some zed in a town. Unfortunantly, I thought I was running into a house so I could single file them down and make it easy. Well it turned up to be a little shack that did nothing but trap me in. I ended up going down to 1200 blood and was passing out and had an infection.

So after about a 10 mile run of passing out and black and white graphics I decided it best to try and stash my somewhat newly aquired czech pack and commit suicide by zed to respawn. Though when I respawned I was on the complete opposite side of the map mad.gif . Just wondering if by tonight when I log on that it will still be there.

Different servers reset at different times. Before 1.5.8, most well maintained servers did resets every 4-8 hours, though 1.5.8 was supposed to lessen the need for it. Czech packs aren't too rare, but I doubt yours will be there when you get back to it. Only way loot survives server restarts is if it's in a saved tent or vehicle.

Do you happen to know of any places I might have better luck finding one? I ended up running up on a dead bandit and that is where I got mine at.

Rog Fort is usually good for a Alice pack.

It's worth checking everything on that map that isn't a barn. Barns are only worthwhile if you're low on ammo or food. Deer stands won't get you a backpack, but they can get you almost anything else.

ok thanks for the link. I think I just saved that map last night before going to bed.

It still erks me about dying. I was all loaded up with ammo for my shotgun and 1911, food and water, and some wood and matches. Was going to head even deeper north. I was currently on the other side of Green Mountain at the time of death. Oh well, just part of the game. I started out last night for a few minutes and found 2 dead survivors near the coast so I looted them for extra water, ammo and beans. So tonight I head forth into the woods thumb.gif
