There has been a large amount of people clearly upset by the recent patch. As a community project, it can be hard to decide what goes into and update and what doesn't - in the spirit of the project we decided to try something we thought would be a nice "salute" to our forum mods.

It would be fair to say, that this has backfired. As is the normal process for dealing with any controversial changes to a community based project, we'll be reverting those changes and allowing a discussion to occur regarding going forward with them.

Hey Razor!

I think that the majority of us don't think that the thing has backfired, nor that it's really bad in any way to 'salute' people that work on the free mod DayZ is, putting time and effort into it.

I think you should start a poll, and see what the entire community thinks of this.

Either way, you could use the bilboards in DayZ, and customize them with names of people that helped DayZ become what it really is!

Cheers!

Good choice. Better to take a step backwards than a bad one forwards.

On a positive note, I like what you guys did with the crossbow bolts.. although I don't like the can names, I guess it's not that big of a deal...

The majority of posts I have seen have been to do with some of the specific item titles. Why not ask the community to think up more appropriate ones?

Anyway. I'm stepping out of this know. I'll be happy with any direction you chaps decide on.

The only thing I will say is that to generate this much posting on a small (imho) issue proves that we are all very passionate about the mod.

That's a good thing to take away from this.

I whole heartily support the ideas on Food and Drink names to show support to the forum mods, keep in mind people these are the few the proud and the crazy that devote so much time to keeping things running smoothly on the forums!

Edit: Its not like the current names will be used in the standalone anyways so i don't understand the big fuss!

I think the new item names were a nice gesture. The mods do a lot for this community and deserve recognition. I think this is a nice feature for now, but in the SA, they should just stick with generic names. I am not upset about this at all. I think some people take the realism part of this game wayyy to far.

Oh noes, first cut from The Last Roundup and now cut from DayZ? You know who I'm talking about... ^_^

Anyways, good decision (to discuss it more), I didn't mind the new food choices but if it's an issue with many people then it should be looked at.

I'd just like to thanks to Joey and Elvaron for all of their hard work in making those items. It was appreceated by some.

I think people are overreacting, but I'm just a forum mod. It's a interesting nod to the forum staff, however I still don't see the need to be upset over it as it's a content update with more food to divide and include, as well as variety. But hey, it's more leaning towards the community this DayZ Mod.

(And I didn't even get included.)

I don't think people need to worry too much about the forums mods lack of appreciation, Rocket has already shown them his gratitude for the work they have and are doing by giving them the access they already have to DayZ Standalone before anyone else and a free copy of the game as well.

I think they've done fine out of all this personally, we'd all kill to be in their position right now, so lets not clutter up the mod with unnecessary extra food and drink items for the sake of it.

Edit: I'd just like to add I couldn't care two shits about the names of the items personally, I just feel that we don't need so many extra food/drink items in the game, nothing personal at all to you mods, I appreciate all the work you do round here.

It's really an issue that is extremely overblown. I wouldn't be against some basic, generic, rebranding of the items, since this all has to do with the texture and item description (Not the actual item name as it is in the inventory). I think its humorous for the community to have those names. I'm actually curious how many that are complaining have actually seen them ingame, or just saw the changelog and freaked about it.

For those that don't know, the food items are simply "Can (Spaghetti or Ravioli, etc)" with the item description giving the name, of which most don't ever read more than once. For a community driven mod, I think its a nice nod to the team and mods who help out.

Hang on a sec... So where's all the people that hated it now? Did they run out of steam already?

This happens after every patch TBH so I guess it may as well have been about tinned goods, rather that than bloody zombie AI or dogs.
