Game updates

Here are some of the most significant tweaks, fixes, and features in the 1.7.2 update. You can read the full, unabridged changelog here.

[FIXED] Infected hear perfectly through objects (noise reduced by 50% through an object)
[FIXED] Corrupted update data causes people to spawn in debug forest (now will not save corrupted position data)
[FIXED] Object cleanup causing significant (huge) performance issue on servers (reduced by up to 50%, means more players + zombies possible)
[NEW] Visibility now smoothly alters based on sun, moon, cloud, rain, and fog state
[NEW] Player Syncing system replaced (increased performance and ammo quantity tracking)
[NEW] Set Bear Traps that break player and infected legs, kills animals, when activated
[NEW] Aubility now dampened in rain and increased by fog

Ah Reddit, one of the saving graces of the internet.
Kind, benevolent, and above all, selfless. Redditors prove their continued dedication to the web every day. And they do it all for the greater good without asking for anything in return.

Nice! I definitely agree about reddit! Awesome community!
post #3 of 39
I wonder about the community some times, at times they do awesome things like this, and other times they downvote my wife into oblivious for mentioning she's a female "shrug".

That's why I lurk biggrin.gif.

Althought, it is very cool that they're going out of their way to help players in such a zero-tolerance game (you do something wrong, your in-game avatar pays for it).

I love watching day-z being played, but the idea of perma-death just scares the carp out of me.

We shall not. BIS already said Arma 2 would not be on sale during the SSS.

There would be no reason to put it on sale, seeing as they've topped the Steam charts at regular price and will continue to do so.

Reddit-who cares,they are not the best and greatest by any means,and as for this "rescue" thing,they have just stole this from the DayZ forums,in the Survivors HQ section.

As for the patch,lets just say LOL,seeing as the backend HIVE server has gone down,(it breaks with every damm patch).

Will people stop asking for this in the steam sale?Its already cheaper to buy it direct from the devs than steam,and they will give you a steam version if you want.

What? I'm not exactly sure what's being commended after reading. They're doing what? Reddit people are giving other people medical supplies? BAH. That happens outside of reddit. Unless it's happening with abnormal frequency.

It's been fixed. DayZ issued a new @Hive or what not file to all server administrators. So... we were playing yesterday.

Looking forward to more zombies thumb.gif
I really want the devs to push it back towards a zombie horror survival game instead of PvP survival with zombie influences.
Zombies should out populate players by 100:1 biggrin.gif
