A highlight of the most interesting information for DayZ at Pax Prime 2015 with Lead Producer Brian Hicks, content creators @TehJamJar & @xSmak as well as Twitch staff @SomaJT

Current Issues

  • Just a small number of zombies spawn in 0.58
  • Some items and functions mentioned in the 0.58 changelog are not enabled
  • Problem with inaudible shots is being resolved
  • Loot will return to exploited camo buildings once the new controller is implemented
  • Excessive weapon sway is a placeholder
  • Fantom sounds should be gone for good

Plans

  • bi-weekly discussions about the state of the game with various community members (different play styles: fighter, survivalist, etc.)
  • monthly bounty/cash prizes for those who find security holes on servers without BattlEye protection
  • Survivor GameZ join the BI’s portfolio and become the official DayZ tournament
  • new damage system prepared for public testing
  • new animation system, e.g. limping or being unable to raise weapon with a broken arm
  • server performance increase with 20–30 FPS being the borderline
  • helicopters and planes before beta
  • drivable Humvee
  • shooting from vehicles
  • contaminated areas, making gas masks useful (more info at TwitchCon 2015)
  • no new map is currently developed, but Sumrak, the Namalsk map creator, works for BI as a mod support tester
  • rotten fruit will return
  • VSS sniper rifle will return in 0.59
  • [maybe] updated VOIP codec
  • [maybe] increased number of zombies in 0.60
  • optimization comes after the alpha phase
  • [unclear] you will never put a banana in your holster – NOTE: Brian was having mic issues

Audio during the Astro presentation had techinical issues, apologies for the audio quality.
