  • Update 1.7 Coming

    On the phone with crappy connection so I can't quote anything. But Rocket has said 1.7 is coming soon and it will increase performance. He said load times will become almost instant, no more waiting for server/host forever. No ETA yet

    Dag nab it!
    So far, there are two major issues is 1.6.0.1 and I really hope he fixes those.
    #1 Tents cannot be deployed, anywhere, period.
    #2 Crashed helis can not be entered (or looted) at all.

    I really hope 1.7 fixes those issues. But - Rocket is pretty dang quick with updates, so, fingers crossed.

      It's not that they aren't enter able. The issue is the loot despawns too quickly. It's a known issue, and it's being looked at/ worked on

        Phone with crappy connection doesn't keep you from reading the DayZ forums at work tho, does it Dredge ?
        ;)

        I hope this update speeds the connection process, that will be awesome.

          That's a negative - multiple confirmed on DayZ forums, and confirmed myself last night on two separate helis immediately after server reboot: it's not possible to interact with crashed helis in any way. This of course means they can't be looted either.

          I was pretty bummed out by that, but, on the bright side, I confirmed on two different servers and I have a pretty good idea of heli crash site spawn hot-zones: if this does get fixed, I should be able to find a crashed heli within 30 minutes.

              Played some 1.7 this morning. Had to drop my Crossbow for a DMR, bolts are currently disappearing :(. However, the intended changes seem to be working.

                Where did you get 1.7? I checked the dayzmod.com download mirrors and the sixupdater and neither had 1.7.

                  I hope they fix the various prone door bone breaks, and the glitchy railings and the crappy inventory before they worry about helios...

                    It's limited at this point but you can get it from the link in Rocket's post http://dayzmod.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=9196

                        I played 1.7 a while today. There are a lot of servers running it already. Be prepared to spawn on the coast if you try it out. You will still have your stuff, but everyone spawns on the coast. Not where you dc'd from. Also, we had some audio issues when trying to go back to a non 1.7 server. Just FYI, if looking into it.

                          1.7.0 is on Sixupdater now but wait for word from the Server Admins before updating. Once they update our server then you can update thru Six.

                              It's not a problem Asch, you might be able to connect and I am sure the Admins will update soon if they haven't already. I only posted this to give a heads up.

                              p.s. If you find that Six updates you to version 1.7.0 automatically when trying to start DAYZ you might not beable to join server. So until the server is brought up to date you can go here:

                              http://cdn.armafiles.info/

                              and d/ld the dayz code only and place it in the addons folder of @Dayz folder that is in the game folder. Go to game folder open @Dayz folder- open addon folder -- paste the 1.6.0.1 code there.

                              If you are not familiar with this process I can assist you on TS or look for someone in the Dayz channel. If you need to quickly find your Game Folder just open Sixupdater and click the Game Folder tab located near the top of Six with a little yellow button.

                              Then once we get word that the server is updated then you can open Six and do the Updater Action of Install or update mods.
