    Is it possible your team will ever release the World building software used for Day Z to the public to enable more user created content? For instance Bethesda released the G.E.C.K for Fallout 3 and NV and it lead to many great modifications created by the community.

    How do you feel about changing up DayZ for the summer? By that I mean changing the weather and replacing the vegetation textures with greener ones and changing the lighting to be warmer. I think this would freshen up the atmosphere a lot and would be something to look forward to, especially if seasons were synced with real life. Think about it, you could apply the “frogs” loop effect (from A2) at night and have crickets playing and whatnot. Seems like that would be pretty cool to me! A nice change from the depressing cold.

    - are you planning to implement player infection by a zombie bite – like getting sick without knowing if you´ve been infected at your last attack, or just ate some rotten stuff – one day you might be attacking your mate you travelled with as a z. imo that would add a lot of tension to the game. you would have to think twice if you tell someone ´hey, i´m sick do you have some antibiotics or food?´ they might kill you for that question…
    also hunting your own or friends zombies with your/their backpack would be nice – like in zombiu – chances would be much more limited to find it in such a large game of course though. would probably cause severe balancing issues too.

    -i personally love the SKS – it´s my favourite gun in the game – will you add more guns? how many will be in the game? i´d prefer if it wouldn´t be too many options in that department tbh. less is more.

    -tell us everything about your new project, like everything, noone will tell anyone.

    -game needs camo make up (don´t know how that´s called in english) this:

    -so whats up with a console version?

    -that said, what´s up with controller support? atm it only works partially but i actually use the controller for travelling or even looting buildings anyway but it´s less than ideal since i have to switch back to the keyboard for the combat. any plans to fully integrate controller support one day?

    -will there be a clan/ faction system one day?

    -not sure what to think about this myself but a player identification system could be helpful. i mean in real life i would recognize someone i know when i am close enough to see the face. would be nice if the game would show up a personal sign or something over the head of a player once i am close enough so i can see, ´ah yea, i think i´ve met that guy – he seems to be alright´- you never know about that though, you never never know :)

    i love the game already. thank you for making it.

    Personal question: Did your earnings changed/affected you in any way?

    Will there be some kind of Ranking in the future, like in the Dayz Mod. Zombie Killed, Bandits Killed, Players Killed, Kilometres walked, Time Survived, with each getting points, the chance of being in the top 100 whatever Players.

    1. Vehicles.
    I know this is a common question, but most people ask for an exact answer: When are you EXPECTING to start releasing vehicles (Bikes included)?

    2. Upcoming weapons.
    What kinds of guns/melee weapons are you looking at adding to the game later, and what kind of respawn rate? I think different weapons, respawn rate decided by how good the weapon is, would be great.

    3. Gun spawning/Cleaning kit importance.
    Are guns going to start spawning at qualities besides pristine, and will the quality decide the accuracy? Nobody really pays attention to the gun cleaning kits, because all guns spawn in pristine condition, so I think it’d be great if they spawned in a variety of conditions, with worse penalties for a worse condition. That would add gun cleaning kits to the “To kill for” list.

    4. Private hives.
    Are private hives released yet? I thought I’d heard something before about them, but haven’t seen them in-game yet. If they’re not here yet, when are you hoping to have those implemented? Which leads to my next question.

    5. Tents and base building.
    Tents are what I’ve been waiting for the longest, because it would be nice to keep a small stash of food, and possibly pistols, in case of emergency (Or other circumstances).

    6. Craftable/Rare second primary weapon slings?
    Is there any chances of being able to, say, craft a primary weapon sling (Requiring a range of rare materials, of course, to make it not-so-easy), and sewing it to your backpack? For example, you wouldn’t be able to use it without it being sewn to your backpack, and you couldn’t remove it from your backpack without scissors (If you find a better backpack, you’d need scissors in order to remove your sling, and a sewing kit to sew it onto the new backpack, and it takes the same damage as your backpack does). Is there any possibility of something like that in the future?

    7. Improvised weapons.
    What about things like nailed baseball bats, double-bladed fire-axes, or short-range PVC pistols (<30 meter range, for small towns, apartment buildings, and similar circumstances)? Improvised weapons would be one of the most important things I think, and it would add a much larger range of possibilities, to make you fear what weapon your opponent might have even more.

    Thanks ahead of time if you answer any of these questions,

    Will there ever be base building like in Epoch? Dont mean to be disrespectful but with all that money and the dev team you should be able to do the same as some moders.
