These are the contents of DayZ Update 1.10
Completely new weather system: As we mentioned in one of our last articles on DayZ Namalsk, a new weather & temperature system should appear with the update 1.10. The changes can be summarized as follows:
Wind and weather now have a greater impact on your character. Many aspects are included:
- What clothes do you wear & how well is it insulated?
- How high above sea level are you? The higher you are (further inland), the colder it
- Is your position or walking route sheltered from the winds? Open fields expose you to the wind more than forests or cities.
- Have you recently warmed up? Campfires give you a buff that will keep your temperature up for a while.
- What time of year is the server you are playing on? Servers can change the calendar, which not only changes the position of the sun it now also adjusts temperatures.
Now it shouldn’t be long before the icy Namalsk mountain map appears, on which Adam “Sumrak” Francu has been working for several years.
Broken bones are back: we’ve all waited a long time for this. Your character can finally break his legs again. This happens when you fall from an extreme height or enough blunt damage has been dealt to it, i.e. gunshots and meele.
If you try to walk upright with a broken leg, your character will faint after a few steps. Contrary to the expectations, Morphine, however, no longer helps the expectation. Only a splint that you craft out of sticks and bandages will help.
Cutting up animals: The last major mechanical adjustment is the cutting up of animals. Until now, you could only do this with sharp tools such as knives or a machete. But now you can also use crowbars or shovels.
The developers at Bohemia Interactive decided to do this because the leather you make from animal skins is more important now. For example, you need it in order to build the new improvised shelter — but more on that later.
New content in DayZ Update 1.10: weapons, tents & more
Light the way for me: There is a new weapon in the DayZ update 1.10. At least one could call the Flare Gun a weapon because it works like one. However, it only shoots different colored flares that glow. The weapon can’t cause real damage, neither to zombies nor to players.
This is how you can easily store loot: There is a new exemplar of the Base Building category. The “improvised shelter” offers you a little space for items. You can also build it in different variants. With or without camouflage is up to you.
To build the shelter you will need tarps. This new building material is also used to repair tents. If you combine sticks, leather, and tarps, you get the shelter. There is also a new leather backpack that looks like a self-made dry bag. This too is made from leather.
Chernarus is being expanded: Several smaller islands were placed between the prison island and the mainland. This should make it easier for you to travel between the island and the coast. In my humble eyes, it makes the sense of prison island obsolete, but be it if the gameplay benefits from it.
