TLDR below.

Reddit link : http://www.reddit.co...t_to_you_fritz/

Dear DayZ enthousiasts. For those that do not know what I stand for, please check my video channel on youtube. In short, I'm a medical player that provides people with needed medical materials, and chuck in a guillie or other special items I come across when traversing the map.

My videos caused my skype account (fritzzefriendly) to be flooded in such a manner that I could not keep up with the requests. Running around like a headless chicken became the largest part of my gametime. On top of that, I only play during a certain timeframe, which ensured that I was enable to help players that were offline when I played. On top of that, I received numerous requests from players that wanted to help with gathering, which I had to deny (it would take out one of the most fun parts of playing as a medic). I started thinking how I could fix this.

At a certain point a US based player needed antibiotics and I set up a tent on a US server in a secure location, put in the antibiotics and handed him the location. I came up with the Fritz' Self-Help Initiative as a result. I have been setting up tents all across chernarus at discreet locations, close to towns and cities where people tend to get in trouble and need help (blood loss, broken bones, etc). These tents are marked in a publicly accessable marker set on the geat DayZmap at DayZDB.com. By deselecting the standard icons you will see the tent-icons on the map. An upcoming video will also show the tents ingame, so you know where to look (some are harder to find than others).

Now, these tents are meant to be public. Anyone in trouble can use them. The next question will be, how about the stuff that people take out? Well, this is where the gatherers come in. If you feel like helping, you can gather some supplies, and head to a tent in the list and look if it can use some filling up. Also, if you have used gear from one of the tents, take some time later in your life to return to the tent and fill it up with gear again so others can be helped out when in need. Look at it as a pay it forward idea.

If you want, you can help expand the network. You can for example set up a tent at the same location, but on a different server. PM me, and I will come to check the tent. If I agree with the setup, I will add the tent and the server to the list. You can also try and find other locations for self help tents, and PM me those too. Keep in mind that these tents need to be close (1-2km) from a town and decently conceiled.

Currently I've been setting up tents only on European servers. I will try and set up tents at the same location across decent US servers as well. If any of you know a good US server that will stay online (I've had US servers disappear on me already), I'm all ears. (pm me here or on skype)

There's no signup on this project. If you feel like helping, just go for it. If you don't want to help anymore, then just stop helping. Nobody is there to check up on you, this projects follows the exact sandbox principle DayZ is based upon. Also, try not to kill each other around the tents, it would kinda defeat the purpose of this idea. On the other hand, you're free to do what you want ofcourse.

The tents are meant to hold ONLY these things:
  • Cooked meat
  • Bandages
  • Morphine
  • Antibiotics
  • Compass
  • Map
  • Knife
  • Matches
  • Hatchet
  • (optional) Guillie/Camouflage suits
  • (optional) NVG
Do NOT store weapons in the tents. Putting in weapons would defeat the whole purpose of this network. If you find a weapon in one of the self-help tents, just chuck it out.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TL;DR
  • To cope with growing requests for help and timezone differences I've set up a series of tents that hold medical supplies for people in need
  • Anyone can use them
  • If you use stuff from the tent consider coming back later and refilling the tent
  • If you feel like helping out, collect gear and fill up tents where needed
  • Only store cooked meat, bandages, morhpine, antibiotics, matches, hatchet, knife, compass, map in the tent. Optional gear can be guillie/camouflage suits/nvg's, but NO weapons. If you find a weapon in the tent besides the hatchet, chuck it out.
  • Tents are currently only on EU servers, US servers will be next. Open to suggestions (I'm not aware of any good US servers that will not suddenly disappear, which has happened).
  • Try not to shoot people that are using the tent, but ofcourse, I can not stop you from doing that.
  • Use the tents at own risk.
  • If you feel like expanding the tent network, pm me the location of the tent, the server and I will check it out. If I agree, I will add the tent to the network.
  • Feel free to place a tent at the same location on a different server. PM me the servername and the tent coordinates, I will add them to the network.

Don't look at it as helping me. Look at it as helping yourself and everyone else. I wish to expand the view on medical care in DayZ.

Ah yes. they are there, but they are pretty well conceiled. The one west of vyshnoye is underneath a tree in the coordinates 057-092. I remember that one because I had a backup tent there for quite some time. It's allways possible that tents didn't load after the server restart, on DE 373 its at 11:10 am if I remember correctly. DE 1998 I'm not sure.

It's possible that that is an old backup tent of mine :) if it's a bizon and an m9 sd then that is one of my own backup tents. I used to keep DE 373 as a home server. I kinda forgot I had a tent there ;) The one that serves as a self-help tent is on DE 1998 if I'm not mistaken.

edit: I just saw that the DE 373 tents were actually wrong (old tent list). I've edited the set to show the actual help tents instead (new link in OP). I'll have to move them somewhat tonight though, but the location is pretty accurate already.

No you can keep it, the fact that I forgot that the tent was still there should have been a hint that I have another campsite atm ;)
The people that follow me on twitter have seen that I regularly find crash sites as I tweet coordinates after I leave the scene, I tend to keep a bizon here and there with some stuff I receive from people I save, or that I find in tents. If it's in a tent, I don't really need it immediately. You enjoy what you found!

Nice initiative. I might be able to help, my backup tent network for medics and their bodyguards is fairly extensive already.

Suggestion: you could set up some tents on the TMW's public server (US2419), which is both relatively safe and frequented by people in need of assistance.

I would like to inform you that two new markers have been added to the south east part of the map on DE 373. This will help people getting in trouble in Solnichyi and Dolina/Msta

Another tent was added in the mean time.
Keep in mind, if you use some things, consider coming back to that tent later on and refilling it so others might enjoy the same items.

If you could use a map service my browser does not refuse to load, I wouldn't mind helping.

We recently fund ourselves a nice and smooth server, obtained the V3S and are currently working on Ural and a Pickup. Afterwards, looting markets for tents shouldn't be an issue, same goes for hospitals.

I think we'll keep our server ID secret though, and place tents on 'foreign' servers. With the new patch, tents should be less buggy, as well.
Greetz,

PS: Friendly until you point a gun/pointystick at me.
