An interesting spawn point for a scientific expedition in DayZ .60. Today, I will head north in the steps of previous pioneers to explore the Northeastern Debug Plains and procedurally-generated terrain and islands of Chernarus. I’m looking to survive as long as possible and travel as far north as I can, sustaining myself using only the harsh environment and the tools I bring.
Skalisty Sunrise Spawn.
The map shows my primary looting area. Mostly relying on Svet, Bereziki, and the smaller rural towns in the extreme northeast corner to gather supplies for the trip.
The Last House in Chernarus.
This is the last residential plot on the map, heading northeast. A very peaceful scene in a nice small rural town.
Just down the road from the Last House, there lies some cabins and a camp in the woods. These are the last buildings of civilization in Chernarus. I leave my trusty sedan here, set up camp, and sort my loot for the expedition.
Key items include:
Logs, sticks, bandages, fish traps (netting + metal wire), matches, cooking pots, cooking tripod, shovel, water bottle, walkie-talkie (I never did heard anyone), fishing rods, improvised stone knife, insulated clothing, and of course a book.
Statement of Peaceful Intentions.
Edge of the World.
Pray for Rain.
In a last ditch effort to save the mission, I try to catch some fish from the alien sea to stave off dehydration, while trying to shed some BTU’s in the seawater. An interesting note: the improvised fishing pole + bait was not able to be deployed. The extendable fishing rod that is found at small boat spawns did seem to be able to be cast, but I did not catch anything on time. I’m forced to eat and drink the rest of my supplies to survive. I must go back.
Forced to Turn Back.
Surf and Turf.
Setting up Camp.
Getting to work planting some pumpkins, setting fish traps, trying rabbit snares (they don’t work out here), and getting a nice warm fireplace going.
Time to Relax.
I will continue north to see how far I can go and survive off of pumpkins, fish, and only the logs and sticks I could carry with me. It is a lonely journey of science. There is always more to uncover.
Shout out to Tatanko, Gews, Weyland Yutani, and all DayZ players with an itch for going further.
