In game there is no favourite system as far as I know but as Shuriken said there is in the Six launcher.
Also if anyone is experiencing that the game freezes for a couple of seconds every 2-3 minutes and uses the Six launcher, alt + tab and close the launcher after you connected to the server.
It should remove it, did it for me anyway. :D

Found my first Alice pack yesterday, went to the supermarket in Zelenogorsk and found four of them inside...

lmao @ american psycho moment

XD Katta, I spent 5 minutes clearing zombies to take one off a corpse and then found 2 in that same shop.
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

lol that it does. Got Mittins to help me out earlier, we decided to try and hit the nearby airfield. We both died shortly after XD

Even with just one extra person it felt much different, we definately need to get a group of us on together :D

Edit: Every game I have I feel more confident, having realised the power of distraction tin cans can make I've had an easy time getting into a couple of barns, got some chemlights, 2 axes, various ammo types, a couple of drinks and 3 tins of food plus a canteen. Dusk/dawn are definately my favourite times to play solo though, both atmosphere and player/zombie numbers are in my favour :)

The best way to play the game at the moment. Just, Be smart about WHEN you shoot. If you can avoid conflict. Do it. Only shoot when it's your only way out :)!

I think giving him a job and telling him to work on the mod is a big enough thanks to be honest :P

It's rarely funny getting your own face chewed off. However, the game IS still in alpha so I'm sure there's a glitch to make the zombies go after someone else's face...

It's called throwing tin cans near them bin :P

Managed to find 4 waterskins but no ammo for the pistol I got, tin cans saved the day though by letting me get to a water pump \o/
Almost time for my nightly session, i'm psyched after finding enough food and drink to last me a few days. I'm camped out in a barn north of elektro, not ventured into town there yet so this should be as much a learning experience as it is a hatchet-meets-face experience.

Sounds like we got enough people playing to make a proper combat squad :D
We should all try and get on later today or tomorrow and have a proper stab at squashing this game and stay working out way towards a kick ass squad :D

Yarrr I'll be in for that, just give me a poke whenever :)

My awesome run came to an end after a hospital bugged out and wouldn't let me in, broke my legs and then got swarmed like I was candy in a playground. So yeah, starting fresh with a bunch would be cool :D Discovered the benefit of stacking double barrel ammo into 8s for inventory space, I felt like an angry farmer after emerging from the barn today lol.
