Post this once the game is actually on track to be standalone, and not while it's still in alpha. You're jumping the gun kind of a lot.

Even if they are in alpha they still have a picture of what they're working towards. So many features have already been discussed which Rocket has acknowledged cannot be achieved in an Arma 2 mod. Some of the features here could even be put into the mod. I'm not suggesting the standalone is around the corner, only that its worth keeping in mind. We all know what this project is building towards. The standalone may not be in development but DayZ is certainly headed in that direction.

I'm sure this thread will survive until the game becomes stand alone.

As soon as people stop making stupid suggestions, and this cesspool of a forum gets cleaned up, I'll give it a rest.

You haven't even read my suggestions, you're just a troglodyte who gets a hard-on from being a tosser. I challenge anyone to read this guy's last 20 posts and not come to the same conclusion.

I actually did read your thread, as I do with every thread. It was typical "this is how I want the game to be," without even bothering to think any of it through. Pretty much every point above either completely ignores the direction of the game, or is something that you think is "cool."

Nothing engaging, nothing unique, and nothing remotely interesting.

Thats your opinion. Feel free to keep bumping this thread which, by the way, I found both engaging and interesting. There are some unique elements to it as well. "Pretty much every point above either completely ignores the direction of the game" is particularly bollocks.

Oh, yeah. Crafting was a totally on-point suggestion.

Some people are just so thick. I don't know how the majority of you guys made it to adulthood without jamming a butter knife into an electrical outlet.

Rocket has acknowledged he would like to implement crafting. Poster also acknowledged at the start of the post not everything here is completely unique.

And some people are just assholes. I don't know how you made it to adulthood without someone kicking your head in. Probably by staying in your room, avoiding human contact and violently masturbating six times a day.

I did once, and licked it afterwords. The nice man in a white smock said I was special. Then my amnesia cleared up, and I started sarcastically answering those pessimists who just don't see the rainbows, and BBEEELLLLIIIIEEEEEVVVVEEEEE.

The solution isn't to stop banditry, rather endorse it. But counter this with humanity's need to band together, and the spoils and comfort that follow suite.

Dude honestly save this post in notepad or word for when this game is closer to standalone. I LOVE all the ideas but I think that Rocket might forget about them by the time the standalone comes out. Seriously repost this EXACT (maybe a few modifications for whatever you come up with by then) when this game is say 2 months from going standalone and I'm sure it will keep getting bumped. PS: You have my beans good sir. :D

Sup, I'm from Google, and this is the first result for "day z standalone". I really just wanted to say, ignore the aversionfx prick, he's one of those internet elitist types who offers no ideas of his own but will flog those of others, especially ones like yours that clearly involved a lot of your time. I really hope the majority of the DayZ playerbase isn't like this twat, but whatever. Look forward to seeing some of your ideas implemented, OP. No need to reply to this with something snarky, aversionfx, I'm on my work break and will probably never check this page again, I just wanted to annoy you even slightly (and yes, you are annoyed, and the more I presume that you are annoyed, the more annoyed you will get, and what will really annoy you is that some stranger wasted his time to say this stuff, and it still annoys you, and it will just turn into an exponential annoyance pie. Loser LOL)

Good physics including ragdoll, vehicles and world objects. (much like demoed in Arma 3).

Large amounts of damage should destroy character and zombie models. Missling limbs, flying meat chunks, oh quake 1 how I loved your tasty gibs.

Missing limbs would be awesome. Have you seen how it works in VBS2?
