New Chernarus+ Map for DayZ Standalone Alpha

If you are just getting into the DayZ Standalone you probably have no idea where you are. This is a good looking sattellite map with a few cool features. Looks like they will be rolling out more on this map soon. You can mark places and save.

Now when you die at least you know where to find your corpse…

New Chernarus Plus Map in Upcoming Day-Z Standalone

Reddit user TheAngryKat posted this fascinating look at the new map for DayZ. As we know, the old map from the mod has increased in size. We also know that many more buildings are enter-able, and things have been added in.

 

If everyone still spawns on the coasts then the far north will be a very dangerous place. If the spawn points are scattered all over the map then the hotzones will concentrate around military or high-value areas.

Ultimate DayZ: Lingor Island Guide

Let’s face it – Lingor Island is becoming a big part of DayZ right now. Even though we all love Mother Chernarus, a lot of people want to play on a fresh map sometimes. Lingor Island does what it says on the tin: a seperate DayZ map on an island named Lingor. The tropical setting is a fairly sharp contrast to the East Europe inspired Chernarus, and yet is very familiar.

While I am in no way advocating or even recommending that you play it I am writing this guide to compile resources and maybe answer some questions, in the vein of my other guides like the Ultimate DayZ FOV Guide and the Ultimate DayZ Graphics Settings and Tweaks Guide. Yes I have played it, and yes I enjoyed it. That’s about it – I have not put too much time into it due partly to me being skeptical of logging into off-hive servers (to be honest I worry about EVERY server I log into, as should you). Earlier things were a bit touch and go during the rise of the private hives, but now it seems that Rocket and company are easing their hard-line stance on who controls what, possibly in a move to give more control to the users of DayZ.

What To Expect

Lingor Island is different from Chernarus in a few ways. For one thing, it is a little bit smaller. Lingor is something like 75% of the size of Chernarus. There are a bunch of little islands with some water in between so there is less landmass. Elevation does not vary as much as Chernarus, Lingor is more flat and closer to sea level obviously.

Another difference is that Lingor has much more military loot. You spawn close to some high grade military sites and can gear up much more quickly. No longer do you have to make the investment to go to Northern Chernarus to get the good stuff. Of course the flipside to that is you might be getting shot at by all that nice weaponry.

The main difference is that Lingor does not exist on the DayZ hive system. What this means is that you character will not transfer between the two so forget about gearing up on Lingor and owning fools in Cherno or Elektro – it doesn’t work like that. I should say here that Lingor might have hackers because it *might* not be as secure as the official DayZ servers, but I can’t because the official DayZ servers have plenty of hackers. Juse beware that when you log into ANY server your info is logged and that info can be used by pretty much anyone with access to the files. Lot’s of shady stuff out there, be careful.

Installing Lingor

There is an “easy” method provided here, but I did not use this so I can not vouch for it.

There are a few steps to install Lingor, but they are not very difficult. The DayZ Wiki is what I used. You can click over to there, or read the steps below:

1. Make sure you have ArmA 2 and ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead installed, patched, and up to date, same as playing regular DayZ.

2. Download this file: @Lingor and put the contents in (@dayz_lingor, @dayz_lingor_island) in the ArmA 2:OA folder, overwriting any existing files.  The Steam path is  C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead – if you are not using Steam then try:  C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2

3. Make a copy of your DayZ shortcut and change the ending to:

mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;ca;@dayz_lingor_island;@dayz_lingor)

4. Start the game go to “Expansions” and make sure all the boxes for Lingor are checked, then restart the game.

5. To find a game go to “Multiplayer” then in the filter just put “Lingor”.

How to Flip Your ATV Back Over in Less Than 2 Minutes.

We all have had the joy of finding an ATV in game, and the agony of flipping it over. The offroad vehicles have a good speed in the the woods, but if you are not careful they can flip. Honestly, even if you are very careful at some point it is going over on you.

Going over any kind of transition can be a disaster in this game. Check out this video of Cros dying to the threshold of a door frame. Sometimes driving where a bridge meets the road can blow you up or flip you as well. You can see this on the video as he flips while crossing the bridge.

I listed the 3 steps below if you can’t or don’t want to watch the video.

 

Youtuber S1pperyJim made the great video above and he gives 3 steps to flipping the ATV back over.

 

Step 1 – STAY ON the ATV. Getting off may make it so that you can’t get the scroll wheel options back, or may outright kill you if you do make it back on.

Step 2 – Turn your wheels toward the sky. Pretty simple, leave the wheel  turned all the way the whole time.

Step 3 – Reverse. Just hold reverse and within a couple minutes you should be flipped back, it is a slow process but is better than anything else right now.

Make sure when you drive up or down hills you go mostly straight up, watch the angle that you take. You know how you have to run at an angle to get up a hill? Don’t do that when driving or you will flip and tumble down the hill. There are other situations that cause trouble too.
