      Manuel - I don't know, honestly I feel like there are some fundamental errors in gameplay so if we are going to make it right, we will have to go back to the very original state which requires much more money.

      Michael-Yes we did cost estimates and our estimate is around 150 USD for the miniature of that scale.

      Just curious....

      Getting a miniature made can be quite expensive. Did you get cost estimates before you offered these as a reward?

      ok you need more money, how much money do you need?
      and put online again in kickstarter or do the after reset. make a web and put upgrades to
      sell. dlc. expansion. ok i buy and expansion or dlc who give the option to pause the game.
      for example.
      early access in steam its an option. dont give up.

      You should go open source with your game since its unfinished due to lack of funds anyway, set up a github: https://github.com/
      and you'll get programmars, some of whom may have even backed this game that'll work on the game just for a name in the credits as a Developer, which is only fair.

      ah think i finally found it, but now i need wood lol. Wow can i just say its 3 am here and ive been playing since midnight.

      Been having a blast. This game has amazing potential! It's pretty impressive how many things you can do!

      anyone know how I can make a bed? Been trying for 3-4 hours, either I cannot enter construction mode while im in the base as it says im not in the base... so maybe a bug..

      Or I can enter construction mode but cannot find a bed?

      @Photon Productions
      I have to agree with Mark: your best bet is to try to get greenlit on Steam and pull in some extra cash (and exposure) via early access.
      Don't give up! :)

      Among all the projects that I backed, this is one that I am most pessimistic about and unfortunately it has proven to be true. Luckily I only pledge the minimum amount of 15 dollars so it doesn't sting as much.

      Going forward this project and others has really diminished my appetite for any further KS projects.

      To Photon Productions I hope you will still support this game and not abandon it just because you ran out of money. Sell it as Early Access, since worse games have been put on there.

      @Photon Productions
      Thanks for the update guys, I had a good play yesterday with the build. I was totally expecting bugs, so don't worry about them.

      Re: Your finances, I would encourage you to contact all backers and see if they would be open to having purely digital rewards instead of anything physical. Physical rewards are a pain to deal with, require shipping and effort and money, where's digital you only need to do it once and then you can mass produce it. Just more economically from my perspective. I am sure people wont mind if you explain the situtation.

      Steam greenlight and early access is also another good idea. You have 3535 people that could vote for this game to be steam greenlit :)

      And final suggestion like others mentioned, focus on a smaller game or at least portion of the game, get it as bug free as possible and then use that as the launching platform to gain the funds you need.

      Keep up the great work, none of the great projects in life have ever come easy :p

      Got your update. Thanks for the effort.

    13. Missing_small

      Creator Trock Brass 2 days ago

      Bugs v1.0.1:

      1-We still can't crouch, crouch key does nothing. I want stance changes in combat, even prone but I settle for crouch, why? Cant use barrels or crates as cover, easier to hit.

      2- No tattoos

      3- when looting bandits their pants dissapear and you dont get to loot EVERYTHING they are wearing, is annoying and unrealistic, should allow us to loot fully. Or just whatever they have on. Like their weapons? They dissapear too. This shouldnt be some cheap RPG arcade game.

      Suggestions V1.0.1:

      1- Allow us to check controls inside game. Not on launch window. Hard to remember what does what

      2- Allow us to kill our own team mates, or have option for hardcode more and perma death, more realism. Also a good way to get rid of annoying team mates. And for fun.

      3- Add zombie invasions to whole map

      4- Add a zoom key when aiming with weapon to steady aim, or allow crouch to steady aim. (i prefer second, more realism)

      5- Add crouching, http://i.imgur.com/xET2tnd.jpg

      ok thats it for now its better looking

      I think it is looking more interesting. Once it is cleaned up a bit it will be a great game. Enemies with unlimited ammo sounds a bit crummy. Hopefully the whole world feels like a wasteland :)

      At this point, given the disappointing beta, it would be nice to get a "state of game" post from the developers. This would cover at a minimum

      1) Current features
      2) Feature still to be implemented
      3) Major known bugs to be squashed
      4) Best estimate of next beta
      5) Best guess of new release date (and if you really don't know, I'd prefer you to be honest and tell me)

      Can we get an update like this?

      Can people try to be just a bit more optimistic? Guys, don't think all your backers feel this way, because we dont. Most of us are just patiently waiting for you guys to get the game fixed up. Most of us have more than enough to occupy our time with.

      We released a beta 20 days ago and it did not turn out very well, so we are fixing...It is a difficult time in development.

      Have no idea how i get out of 1st person.
      The game does not feel like the game in the kickstarter video

      welp, bout time I direct my attention elsewhere....

    36. Photo2d.small

      Creator The Evolutionary on February 6

      Uh, 95% of development taking place in China? You indicate your company is in NY. I don't think many of us were expecting that but I had a feeling when I initially looked at this project. From the feedback I'm seeing already, this is not a good sign. And with most of the development in China, (not People from China in New York), wow, that kind of outsourcing...well I've seen it backfire before. For graphics to be "years behind" the KS prototype doesn't look good.

    37. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Alfredo Chaves on February 5

      It is indeed a very poor build, poor graphics, full of glitches, bugs and unfinished features. The KS campaign prototype was years beyond what I am seeing now. Extremely disappointing and unprofessional.

    38. Hpim0047.small

      Creator Knight Lord Marius on February 4

      I have to say that I was expecting so much from you Photon, you ditched the original graphics and got these lackluster dayz ugly as hell ones. I still go back and look at the original concept of the game and think just how exited I was for it then, and how disappointed I am now! Everything you have put out so far just shows how much lack of experience you have.

      I still hope you can make something good, but I will not hold my breath!

      Creator Photon Productions on February 3

      Apologize if you see Chinese in this build, occasionally...We had to translate it into Chinese for some of our testers in China, since 95% of the development took place in China. We will make sure it is translated into proper english in the final build.

      Btw, all the future beta updates(if any), will be uploaded to the same address which is the link I sent you through private message. And if there is any updates, we will notify in advance.

    42. Logo2_2.small

      Creator Photon Productions on February 3

      We have uploaded it to mediafire. It should work, at least on my machine here. The link remains the same. And we have fixed a few problems with this version. Please don't pay for the premium account for this, it really isn't worth it. :D

      Creator James Jones on February 3

      Rapidshare isn't any sketchier than most download sites that have free downloads. They probably weren't aware the limit for free downloads is around 1GB since they have an account and don't see the limits. There aren't many sites that offer free downloads that don't have some limit or drawback these days.

    45. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator jason huskie on February 3

      I decided to pay for a "premium" acct on Rapidshare so I could host the file for everyone else without paying the hostage fee, but Rapidshare is awful and I have been waiting 2 hours with more than an hour left for a 1.2Gb file that I could normally download in 3 minutes. I am very unhappy with this whole debacle.

    46. Missing_small

      Creator Trock Brass on February 3

      So... why not upload this small file to the many free vendors out there?

      what is the meaning of this? why must we wait 2 days?

      Creator jason huskie on February 3

      That is a sketchy upload. It requires people to upgrade to a paid account which then gives Photon five Euros per person that upgrades. I know you said you are going to add two links in a few days but that seems like a shakedown.

    48. Logo2_2.small

      Creator Photon Productions on February 3

      Ok so we have uploaded, but it turns out the link does not work for everyone because of the download limit. This build is larger than the last one (1.2 GB) that is what caused the problem.

      We will upload it to another storage and will update the link. The webpage for download reminds the same.
