Base Locations & Usage

Originally published on September 26th, BEFORE DayZ Mod 1.8.8 (with base building) was released.

  1. Bases should not enclose, block or surround HIGH VALUE (MILITARY) structures, CASTLES, FUEL TANKS, WATER/PUMPS/WELLS, WAREHOUSES or VEHICLE spawns.
    • Castles  are ALL vehicle spawns.
    • Gas Stations are ALL vehicle spawns and mission spawns.
    • Firehouses are MILITARY structures.
  2. Bases should not be used to hoard vehicles.
    1. Vehicles are for transportation.
    2. Hoarding is subjective. Too bad.

  1. Are we going to see chainsaws added in order to make it easier to break into bases?

    Is there a way to use melee weapons, i.e. hatchet or sledge, to break down gates?
