Team,

There is huge problem in this game and that is broken bones and not finding any morphine. 3 of us eventually all got broken bones and now are stuck in the woods. We spent around 5 hours searching in towns for morphine and no go.
How did we all get broken bones? Bad programming code. Zombies not dying when their shot, and zombies glitching out. Having to pump full clips of M1911 ammo into a zombie and they don't die is game breaking. If you want to have a simulator the code has to be top notch. Good example is Dark Souls if you die in that game it's your own damn fault, DayZ? it glitched out on you.

I see a few solutions to this problem. (from easiest to tough)

1. Remove the ability to break your bones
2. Up the drop rate on morphine or allow bandages to fix bones
3. Add drugstores in every town or medical tents
4. fix the code on zombies and their movement because we should only die when we made the mistake.

On a side note we do love this game and really want to keep playing it. It's the reason most of us in the last few months have picked up ARMA 2 and I'm sure you know it. I understand that it's alpha and maybe I and many of us should just wait till everything is fixed however making this a broken bone simulator is not fun.

P.S. If anyone has temporary solutions to our situation please let me know =]

Its not the game. I have found countless morphine. And every other medical supply in the game. If you want to avoid broken bones, dont be stupid and run into shit. Or have your friends walk over you. Or push you into objects. Its about playing smart. Not bad coding. If you cant find any? You must have the worst luck in the entire world.

Disagree. You should only die when something causes you to die, whether it was within your control or not.
You didn't stock up on morphine and that is nobody else's fault.

Nah, the broken bones is a good idea. Question: Is the programming perfect yet? Answer: This is in Alpha. I have never had any issues finding morphine. If you have found a hospital, you will find tons of it there.

I crawled like 3km to a hospital once to get some morphine and had to take stuff from the loot piles under the boxes first to get too whats inside of them. This should be fixed and maybe that was your problem.

this^ oh and btw, before heading out in the "woods" and north and so on, always stock up on medic supplies from hospitals, i always go with at least 3 morphine before i head out. blood bags i dont care about since i rarely play with a group. just get hatchet/knife/matches and kill animals for meat that cooks, and gives 800 blood = survival gone easy.


-dont look for morphine in towns with no hospitals, i never seen morphine other places then in barracks rarely, and hospitals, or chopper crashes. i dont think it spawns in residential/factory areas.. so quit looking there.

This. (Is. An. Alpha!)

Oh, the whiners. Will they ever learn that their habbit of flooding forums with tears may work on something like WoW, CoD and stuff but not everywhere? Doubt that...

Broken bones and no morphine is super awemazing, especially if you got hit through a wall.

You will live and you will die.

One of you respawn. He runs to a hospital and gets morphine, then gets back to you guys and heal yer bones. All this while you lie in the woods like wounded turrets guarding the lucky respawnee's body.

Did any of you actually read my full post? I talk about different was to fix this issue. I stated I understand the is alpha, this is the suggestion thread and so I made a suggestion. I beat Demon Souls, Dark Souls, and Catherine on hard so I understand when a game has issues. Nothing is perfect that's why I suggested something be looked at.

Easy as pie.

Every character that starts out and wants to survive for more than 24 hours should get medical supplies in a hospital of his/her choice.
We play as a squad as well and whatever we plan/do before we start with that everyone runs to the nearest hospital, grabs a set of supplies (2 bloodbags, 2 painkillers, 2 morphine injectors, 2 epi pens, 4 bandages) and then we move out. This way, we can tackle almost anything, we survived concealed sniper fire, ambushes, Zed Armies (that one downed helicopter spwaned about 40 of those buggers) and bugs (mate broke his leg near a tent, when climbing down a deer stand, i broke mine while prone sneaking between two trees, etc). be sure to restock on that stuff whenever you kill anyone and they have it on them (Military Zeds also drop morphine) and make sure to check out deer stands, military tents(stary) or barracks(NWAF) its not that hard.

Always be prepared, never let your guard down.

Bad luck i guess but the issue with zombies i agree i had to pump almost a whole clip into a zombie from my 1911 for him to go down.

The m1911 is glitched/nerfed since the last Arma2 update. No it takes 3-4 body shots to kill a zombie.

Anyway, how did you manage to break bones in forest if there's no zombies and usually no big falls either. If you'r really bothered with the bones breaking too easy, get 3+ morphines each on hospitals and go to major towns sometimes for new medical supplies.

Wow, that's good to know is there somewhere this is listed? (M1911 nerf) and we were in a town but decided to try getting morphine by a near by deer stand and as we were there my 3rd buddy broke his legs lol.

If you made the title of the thread less dickish people might not hate on your so much. Anyway, i was going to make a thread like this myself, because the bone breaking at the moment is bullshit, they have 3 options:
1: you spawn with 1 morphene to avoid all the glitches (my bones are almost always broken by glitches or Zeds while i have a ton of health) untill such a time they mend the programming (i support this one the most)
2: remove environmental and Zombie enduced breakage of bones, and only keep bone breaking to pvp when you get axed or shot. when someone breaks my leg by shooting me or axeing it off, thats fair enough, il go crawl to the hospital across the city. its when Zombies do it when you have 10000 blood left in one hit before you have a chance to get anywhere with morphene as loot, or as i have seen happening recently, just randomly breaking my leg when i walk through a door or prone over a 1 inch platform, again, before having a chance to get to stock up. im not saying remove broken bones, just temporarily remove the ability to break them from environmental haZards (falling off of high buildings, walking through doors ect) and make it so Zeds never knock down untill the programming is usable for them. instead of breaking your legs when falling off a high building, just make it so that they lose a lot of blood or just die instantly depending on the hight. NOTE: im not saying this to get rid of bone breaking, but to make it easier for them to code it out of the game while they fix it. (and because the above is such a pain in the ass, is why i support #1)
3: let people repeatedly break their bones and have to respawn and get pissed off with their game because of a mechanic that is not necessary in the game for it to work properly and is more often than not caused by a glitch. (I don't think it's fair to force something that is this broken into the game untill they have either fixed the problems or rework it for the standalone)

Team,
If you want to have a simulator the code has to be top notch. Good example is Dark Souls if you die in that game it's your own damn fault, DayZ? it glitched out on you.


Dark Souls had a proper development team behind it. It's fairly obvious to any developer that bugs/glitches aren't good and they need to be fixed.

If you broke your legs due to the bugs/glitches, specially with zombies then yes this is an annoyance and hopefully fixed soon.

I packed a tent with med supplies and logged out. Next day I couldn't get on the server with my tent due to bugs. Decided to head into town on a different server. I ran into a zombie and shot him a few times with my PDW. He then slid through half the wall and hit me once breaking my bone.

I lost my morphine to a bug and then broke my bone to another bug.

Fun is.

And of course just to chime in that there is a Bug Reports forum just in case you guys didn't know.
