A new DayZ mod update was released, which means it's time for some updates here. The biggest addition to the game this time is the introduction of a crafting system. Here's a quick list of some of the things that can be crafted already:
On top of crafting, you can now also use Fishing Poles to fish in the sea. This is pretty great, because if you catch a Tuna, you can cook it to get a Tuna (cooked), which gives 2000 blood when eaten.
This is far from a comprehensive list of changes — you can find that here. Still waiting on standalone!
