    I did not, however, let someone get out of my vehicle to search a backpack then conveniently run them over. Nor did I crash a car and have to wait 5 minutes for my passenger to regain consciousness.

    And I don't think we even need to bring up the leg breaking helicopter incident now do we!
    Ooo Ooo! Lets bring up the chopper incident! That always make me smile as it was so awesome!

    For anyone who's not seen them:

    I presume people still play DayZ? MOD or standalone??? Only got my PC yesterday and have never played DayZ before, so any pointers would be great!

    I play Standalone occasionally, I'm pretty kitted now but paranoid about moving near the coast!

    In terms of tips this is what worked for me:

    Find some food and water/soda when you spawn
    Head inland (I ended up at the North West airfield), most bandits and other survivors often stick around the coastal areas in particular the cities Electro and Cherno.

    Get an online map up so you can alt-tab to it, once you find a road sign you can usually figure out where you are on the map (towns etc are in cyrillic but you can match the symbols and letters up on the map)

    Your best melee weapons are the axes, in particular the fire axe but anything is better than fists.

    Remember you can drink at water pumps if they are present in villages.

    I tend to approach villages cautiously at first but with the intention of attracting zombies (preferably one at a time) because I can one shot them with my axe and then I'm not worrying they will jump on me when I am looting a building.

    don't eat rotten food. Most tinned food can only be opened with a can opener or a edged melee weapon (in which case you spill some food when opening it).

    That's a very basic guide, there are far more detailed ones out there but those steps got me started (I was also lucky enough to get an axe fairly early)

    @nikaso - thanks for the tips

    Play the mod if you want a proper experience and a look at how the standalone will eventually pan out. Only play the standalone if you're willing to accept it is very buggy, you will lose characters and things may not work at all.

    If playing the mod, get DayZ Commander (or similar) which manages DayZ for you. It lets you install the other maps, search for servers etc. Personally Lingor server is the best map, much better balanced than Chernarus.

    +1 for Lingor. It is GREAT fun on a populated server! @Dopefish can confirm the sheer amount of shenanigans that we've experienced on it!

    Humm.... may get it on the go again this weekend....

    I'm not sure if Lingor is now just the new Lingor (was it Skalinator...where they fixed the barrack doors bug) or the original one or if they still run both.
    Either way it was great and I might tank up on painkillers to have a blast this weekend if others are.

    I do hope Lingor is added as an official map in the standalone, or at the very least a map similar to it. Chernarus is OK but there are just way too few towns. I'd like to see a more urbanised map.
