DayZ developer Dean “Rocket” Hall has updated the game's official blog to explain why the standalone version is not yet available yet. The hugely succesful survival game was expected to have a pre 2013 release yet fans are still in the dark as when to expect the full game's release.
Taken directly from the offical blog DayZ developer Dean “Rocket” Hall says:
"The development team is working on things like redeveloping the engine, most notably massively improving the inventory system. Players will scavenge for items now, as individual parts, picking up pieces rather than piles, looking for cans on shelves or under beds.”
This sounds like it is far more realistic than the current system where the loot options are progressively flawed. In the standalone, items can have durability, can run on batteries, can be added to, and more. Hall also offers an example in which a player might shoot another in the head so as to steal her night vision, only to find the night vision has been damaged as a result.
The inventory will also get a much needed face lift. It will look nicer, with 3D models instead of 2D images, and be easier to use. In general, the UI for the game will be “simple and effective,” apparently following the lead of Minecraft. It will be prettier, too, with things like improved textures inside the buildings.
