We, at the DayZ Wiki, are happy to announce our latest additions to the wiki; a fully interactive loot map and database. The community wanted a perfect, customizable map, and we put that idea in our crosshairs. We aimed to make DayZ Wiki the only companion site necessary when playing the ARMA 2 mod: DayZ.
Additionally, our database entries are the exact numbers from the game, so every player can get the exact information they desire. We hope you like the new features we have integrated and that you let us know if there are more you would like us to add.
The first thing you might notice is that the map defaults to a satellite view. We believe a satellite view gives the user the best views of the map and terrain of the area they wish to explore. For those of you who prefer the traditional topographical view, you can easily switch it in the top right corner of the map.
Fully Customizable Filters
Our map is different from the others in the fact that you can change all of the necessary attributes in order to find exactly what you are looking for in the world of DayZ. Instead of being constrained by uncertain terms such as low, medium, or high yield, you can select the exact amount of loot you are looking for, as well as the spawn percentage.
Another cool feature we have included is plotting the spawn points. We feel this will be especially helpful for new players to gain their bearings when they first spawn into the huge continent of Chernarus. Additionally, you will have the option to find spots with high or low zombie counts based on the number that spawn and the percent chance they have of doing so. Finally, the database will allow you to easily see all the item attributes, and simply look for the places they can spawn on the map.
Our main goal is to make our map the best there is. As with the wiki, we put a strong emphasis on accuracy and user accessibility. With that, we hope that anyone who has ideas or suggestions to make it even better should provide them in the comment area of this post. We don’t see this map as being in its final form as we still have a huge list of features we still need to integrate. Hopefully the DayZ community can help us add even more!
