    First and foremost, welcome to TG! Certainly glad to see that you think our forums are awesome, feel free to poke around and join in conversation anywhere!

    As for your question: You actually dont type in DayZ. The developers disabled server-wide chat functions (such as side chat and global chat channels) several months back to increase the realism of the mod by forcing short range communications over direct voip. However, we do have our teamspeak server which you're more than welcome to join and I'm sure you'd find several people willing to work with you!

    So there is no option for typing? Because in the left bottom corner i can see text now and then and i thought it was the text chat... Im a aware of the direct voice communication. Thanks!

    The only way to type is by directional and vehicle...

    Directional Von works to describe local. In game its called direct but the effect is 3d directional.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion-"

    I think it is the '/' key to type. As stated above, it only works in the vehicle channel and direct channel (change channels by using ',' key, I think).
