vacation, this Status Report will be shorter than usual. However, we are diving into exciting content regardless, as we will be talking about the upcoming first big update for 0.63. And we are happy to showcase another huge collection of your awesome community content - Let's get to it!
- Dev Update/Eugen
- Community Spotlight
it's about time to talk about the content update that's coming to Stress Test branch very soon and will get rolled over to the Experimental servers after making sure everything works as intended. We will try and batch the content updates in this way so we can stabilize and make sure the content works properly.
- AI Sensors/Audibility/Visibility
- Hidden Stash
- Character - Unconsciousness
- New weapons
- Soft skills
- Environmental Exposure
- Ambient Loot
- Voice Communication
So, how soon this is going to happen? The features listed here are undergoing testing as of now and the content has been branched away from the internal development version with many more fixes and improvements to stability, security and server performance.
On a side note, since in the internal version of this patch, we resolved the GDPR issues blocking the ability to switch to the experimental version, with its introduction we will enable this option for server owners. I'm personally looking forward to all this content coming back alongside things that changed and have been improved upon heavily. See you in Chernarus!

This weekend, Nine Inch Nails (a band that many of us in the dev team like) had a gig at the Aerodrome festival near Prague, and guess what - Alessandro Cortini, who's been a member of NIN for quite some time now, is a fellow DayZ survivor! We could not pass on the opportunity to meet with Alessandro, and so we did bother him for a bit before he went up on stage! It's been so awesome to chat and listen to some of his stories! Just a brief look at his DayZ t-shirt reassured us that he's serious about being a fan - the condition of the t-shirt has been way, way past pristine, and so we set him up with a new one :) Check out Alessandro on iTunes[itunes.apple.com] or SoundCloud[soundcloud.com], and look for him on Chernarus. Remember - talk to people! You never know who's on the other side, it could be someone from your favorite band!
Let's check out some new video content:
An emotional story of the life of Ricky Jameson by CamCANTRUN recorded in DayZ and the Arma 3 Eden Editor:
Ant made a DayZ fan trailer and it is really nice!
Rustycaddy made a video in honor of our beautiful Chernarus:
This is a story about the great opening of Uncuepa's bar. It starts really nice, there were a plenty delicious food, drinks and music, but what happened in the end wasn't nice…
And what about some of your pictures and drawings? Check it out:
The first one is a nice edit of a screenshot by the famous DrDesync.
Another edit is made by Reddit user TheWhishImBallHorson named "They Found Me". Good job!
Zarrov sent us a sketch of his idea of barricading. It looks impressive!
It is an end of a school year and Barrett5Bumpas is getting bored at his classes. So he made this DayZ inspired picture. It is really nice, but don't forget - education is more important than video games!
Do you remember the photo series Humans of Chernarus[www.dayzunderground.com]? It continues and it is still really cool. If you don't know it, it is a portrait of some DayZ characters living on the DayZ Underground server, the project is inspired by Humans of New York.
Let's check the riddle.
