Extended hide body time.

Post  Traumahead on Mon Jun 03, 2013 6:16 pm

Alright here is another wishful thinking thread. Is there any way to force a player to take more time to hide a body? In real life it would take time to bury a person, so there is little consequence for someone to do it in game. If you were gonna hide a players body you'd need to be damn sure someone wasn't watching you or you might not bother doing it.

I like this idea, very cool thinking.

Would actually be a unique addition to the game. Your right, at the moment you can hide a body quickly and easy and keep moving. But if you had to sit through a animation while you "bury the body", it would add another aspect to pvp/group battles.

Beans Beans Beans I like this suggestion.

Gives me some more stuff to play around with, this is deff. possible. Just will need to really mess around with it to see if I can make it happen. I'll let you guys know how it goes. Very Happy

Good idea man!

Also what I would like to see is the ablility to dig up a "hidden" body with an e.t.
As far as I know the only thing happens is that the body is placed a few feet down so you can't see it anymore (if you hide a body thats hanging over the edge of a building you'll see what I mean). It would be like a treasure hunt when you hear them flies buzzing /bigsmile

I suggested it once on the dayz forum so hopefully it will be implemented one day because I don't think thats something you (Skeeter) could program?

never know until i take a look. i'm already messing with the longer "bury body animation" which is fairly easy. as far as digging it back up, not sure if its something I could do........if we did do it, the animation for digging it back up would need to be longer. for now I'll deff. add the extra time it takes to bury a body along with a unique animation (people watching from a distance will be able to tell what your doing <--and could shoot you to stop the body from being buried), and we can keep the digging it back up discussion open for a bit to hear what others think.

i like both suggestions/ideas myself. thanks guys

I don't think digging them up is necessarily. It only diminishes the weight of starting/being in a battle. IE "well if I die i can just come dig up my body". I know players get satisfaction from hiding a body of someone they don't like. I am just looking for realism and better game mechanics. The decision should have weight.

I've literally had a bandit in my sights hiding a body before but I didn't take the shot because the process was so quick. He literally landed a huey just to do it. Then he killed me for the entire night afterward because I didn't get the shot.

Is there a way to make player body hiding longer but not zombie? It is just an inconvenience when dead zombies fill up the barracks

You have a point there. But you'd need an entrenchingtool to do it. And could be coincidence but I haven't found that many the last few months. But maybe you're right. Just make the animation a bit longer
