Thanks a lot for the response dtg, I have had this idea in mind since I've wanted to become a game developer, which has been since somewhere around the release of the Sega Genesis. I have always been a huge fan of RPGs and Simulators, so this seems like a good idea to use a little of both, not to mention survival is always fun. Do you think my ideas will be fun to the game, or would it seem too real?
Also, Dayz is the half-life mod game, right? I've seen it around the net I believe, unfortunately, I'm stuck with a decent laptop right now (Desktop fried, thanks GTA 4), but my laptop isn't capable of handling that game if I remember right, what a shame.
