That's quite the distance. Could make for some fun times, especially as sniper overlooking towns.

It will replace the old sidetext/chat system that was global in the DayZ mod.. and I cannot wait for it. Going to be amazing to sit there talking to people asking what its like at NEAF and where a heli crash was spotted, snipers, etc.. I cannot wait. Finally people can call out for medical help, and ambush each other.. so good.

All we need now are known and accepted frequencies we can use so as to broadcast emergencies etc.

 

Of course these frequencies could be used/scanned by bandits, but you get that!

It would be nice to have local (500m-1km) sub channels included, so you could have private conversations amongst clan members and have it still not be quite private.. the savvy user could be close and listening in. :)

They should just look up the specifications for whatever brand of walkie-talkie they've chosen and put that in as the maximum range...

Well, isn't it actually the whole map then? I was under the impression of the map being 15 by 15 km, meaning 21,2 as the furthest distance. Right?

Hopefully they've included different power output settings for people who don't want to transmit over 2 kms.

 

Nice 30 km is great! Does anyone know if the signal is frequency or amplitude modulated? If it's FM we don't need to transmit shit in morse code all the time to get a quality signal.

So are Walkie Talkies still as rare as rocking horse shit?


Every newspawn is like a newly hatched sea turtle trying to survive. The coast is rough, and many little turtles dies.

Word?

 

Until they make them a bit more common, I doubt I'll use it.

 

Glad to know they're integrating side-chat as an ability that has to be acquired in-game, vice just given to the players regardless of their status in-game.

 

I would like to see them be persistent (whenever persistent items get implemented) and actually be able to pick up sounds in proximity like was said way back.

"Keep in mind, this is just placeholder behavior - while we test out the mechanic. The walkie talkie item itself should only cover about 3km. If we went with this, we'd need to create a 2meter or similar handheld."
