I'm kind of interested in SL9B, which is coming soon. The fact that it is 100 percent resident-run is quite a big story. It's also coming up VERY soon and they would definitely like to hear from potential exhibitors and volunteers. Is there a story forthcoming?

Pathfinder

This sounds fascinating. Count me in.

Maybe we can all meet up somewhere at a specified day/time?

I purchased Arma 2 simply for this game. It is terrifyingly awesome - a completely different experience from any other survival horror game out there.

Unfortunately D3 came out so I moved on, but I plan to go back later.

The game I've been dreaming of my entire life :)

In SL you could implement a system where you barricade doors and windows. Unfortunately the sim would be way too small.... maybe you could have custom tiny avatars people wear while playing the game. 1/10 scale so the sim becomes larger... wonder if the camera could handle it.

I saw this on Kotaku a while back and planned on checking it out sometime this Summer. We should form an SL based contingent.

Ehrman, I was wondering about that -- maybe we can all choose the same DayZ server to play in?

Ehrman Digfoot

Sounds good. I'm downloading it through steam now. :D

The hardest part about meeting up in DayZ is that you spawn at a random location on a VERY long coastline, it can take hours to meet!

The Media Cows guys were playing this live streaming on YouTube, and its on their channel. After watching the gameplay and the glitches, like zombies stuck in place, I'm going to pass on this. You should check the videos above and others who play it and watch the gameplay cause it can get boring at times where you have no idea where you're going, have to watch your back for trolls.

Looks like fun, could work in SL but I'd probably just build a small village and let visitors choose to be healthy or a zombie at the entrance.
So you would be a survivor barricaded into a village with several houses and everywhere around you is just fields and forrests.
In stead of exploring and gathering food it would be about trying to survive, starting a community in this post apocalyptic world.
Restoring the homes, building barricades etc.
Other visitors can choose to either be zombie or visitor, and thus help defend or try to convince the group to accept them. Or as a zombie try and destroy the defences, ruin the small crop, try and kill/zombiefy people, etc.

Could be quite interesting and also scary because you never know when zombies will attack, when there will be groups or just one, you don't know if new people can be trusted, you don't know if you will have enough food grown from the small field and you can just pray that when the zombies attack you are not the only one human online...

Different question, does this DayZ thing have female avatars as well?
