  • DayZ Patch Update Thread

    As of this post the current version of the patch is: 1.5.8.1

    Click for download : Download Link

    Developers Notes:

    UPDATE : 21 MAY 2012
    Affected addons:
    * dayz_code 1.5.8
    * dayz_equip 1.2.4
    * dayz_sfx 1.1.2
    * dayz 1.2.5
    * dayz_weapons 1.1.2

    Developer's Note:

    * TO INTERACT WITH MOST ITEMS: YOU NOW NEED TO OPEN GEAR MENU (G) THEN RIGHT CLICK ON THE ITEM! SUCH AS BANDAGING AND EATING AND ****

    * This is a pretty major update. I don't really know what affect the new sickness and temperature system will have on player behavior especially with antibiotics being so scarce.
    * It is the genesis of an idea, so please remember this might cause havoc. You need to be careful.
    * To light a fire, you need matches and wood in your inventory. Place more wood in the inventory of a fireplace to keep the fire going.
    * A fire that does not have wood in it will go out when you try to light it.
    * You can tell you have an infection, because your character will start coughing. The infection causes you to loose blood down to a minimum of 6000. This leaves you with reduced blood until you take antibiotics.

    Changelog:
    * [NEW] Server cleanup system replaced with a more agressive one
    * [NEW] Inventory Interaction system (right-click on items in gear screen to bring up interactions)
    * [NEW] Temperature System now implemented (effects are limited)
    * [NEW] Chance of catching an infection the lower your temperature
    * [NEW] Chance of catching an infection from already infected players
    * [NEW] Water can be filled in ponds, all water pumps, wells, but not the sea
    * [NEW] Forced disconnection saving for abort and alt+F4
    * [NEW] Zombie's will investigate player deaths
    * [NEW] Adrenaline rush from panicing causes greately increased hunger for a while
    * [NEW] Bandaging Sound when bandaging yourself/someone
    * [NEW] Coughing sound when you have an infection
    * [NEW] Camera Shake when temperature drops extremely low
    * [NEW] PROTIP: Use Global Chat/VOIP in populated areas
    * [NEW] Fire requires wood to keep burning
    * [NEW] Various Loot spawn balancing changes
    * [FIXED] Should not be pellets for the Winny
    * [FIXED] Whinny is way to powerful and quiet (mmmm your tears will be delicious)
    * [FIXED] Helicopter loot despawning too fast
    * [FIXED?] Too many zombies for the Carebears to be able to play
    * [FIXED] Fog is way too thick
    * [FIXED] Climbing a ladder with a pistol will cause you to fall
    * [FIXED] Zombies not attracted to Flares and Chemlights
    * [FIXED] Panic noises going ape**** all the time
    * [FIXED] Zombie spotted alert far too quiet (increased slightly)

    The update is already available Thru Sixupdater. You will see yellow tile next to preset name and mod file.. Read the guide on updates or just click then right click on either preset name or mod file then choose Updater actions and then Update or Install mods. It will take a few minutes and when the update is finished the tiles in the left panel of Six will turn green.

        The winchester is no longer head and shoulders above the lee and cz as survivor tier weapons. This is becoming complex.

                Six Updater isn't pulling down 1.5.8.2 for me. It's saying i'm in sync at 1.5.8.1.

                  It's possible that 1.5.8.2 was a server side hotfix (considering it deals primarily with spawn rates). Have you tried joining a server since the update?

                    Yep... and the server told me I'm running an out-of-date version.

                      Six Updater is not yet pulling down the .8.2 data file. You need to manually obtain the code.rar from the day z site and go into the @dayz mod folder and replace it. Mine is in ArmA 2\@dayz\addons. Looking for dayz_code.pbo and dayz_code.pbo.dayz.bisign

                            Temp in 1.5.8.1


                            Was incredibly broken.

                            Glad the got this fix out quick.

                            Tents now can not be placed at all.

                            Firepits are persistent though they use up fuel (have a life span).

                            Rain at night is deadly.

                            I shot a wabbit with the crossbow at about 80 yards ^^ Now all I need to do is bullsey a womprat!
