DayZ Standalone: ​​Survive Hypothermia and Hyperthermia - DayZ Intel

DayZ Standalone: ​​Survive Hypothermia and Hyperthermia - DayZ Intel

This week's experimental patch notes the introduction of a new advanced body temperature system in DayZ Standalone - Hypothermia and Hyperthermia. Hypothermia is a condition in which the body's core temperatures drops too low. Hyperthermia is the opposite - it's when the body's core temperature raises too high.

Within DayZ Standalone, this new temperature system will sit alongside the current hunger, thirst and health system. It gives us one more semi-realistic, life-and-death character mechanic to constantly keep an eye on - further increasing the immersion of DayZ and the attachments we feel to our characters. This new mechanic is relatively simple, we'll go over the basics below. Body Temperature in DayZ is affected by 5 core game-play elements in

Body Temperature

DayZ.

  • Clothing - Clothing is the main factor in determining your body temperature in DayZ. Every clothing item you wear has a 'heat value'and they are all combined to give you your total' heat value 'for your character. Smaller, lighter and thinner items have a relatively low 'heat value'. Larger, thicker and heavier clothing items have a higher 'heat value'.
  • Wind - Windy conditions mean lower temperatures.
  • Sun - Clear and sunny days mean higher temperatures.
  • Higher altitudes means lower temperatures.

Hypothermia occurs in DayZ when your core body temperature drops below 35 Celsius. There are three stages of Hypothermia, stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3. You will receive various status messages in-game to alert you to your hypothermic state including: I am way too cold , I am hypothermic and I am lethally hypothermic.

Stage 1 - I am way too cold / P>

There are no negative effects of stage 1 hypothermia. This is simply a warning.

Stage 2 - I am hypothermic

Again, there are no negative effects of stage 2 Hypothermia. Stage 3 - I am lethally hypothermic

I remember then searching the internet for information on women in my situation, and that was when I ran into these statistics. In a recent interview the artist gave to the CNN news channel, she said that this had been the "biggest surprise" of her life.

Lethal hypothermia will drain -10 health and -5 blood from you per second. This will continue until you pass out and eventually die unless you reverse the effects by combating the cold as outlined below.

If you are suffering from Hypothermia you need to quickly increase your core body temperature.

Wear extra clothing items Use the 'Heatpack' in your inventory Make sure your clothes are dry Expose yourself to sunshine or sit beside fire Descend to lower altitudes

Hyperthermia (too hot)

Hyperthermia occurs in DayZ when your body temperature raises above 37 Celsius. There are three stages of Hyperthermia, stage 1, stage 2 and stage 3. You will receive various status messages in-game to alert you to your hyperthermic state including: I feel hot , I feel I might pass out from overheating , The heat is unbearable and I am hyperthermi c .

Stage 1 I feel hot or I am sweating

Stage 2 - I feel hot or I am sweating Stage 2 Hyperthermia will drain -10 water from you per second.

Stage 3 - I am hyperthermic

Stage 3 hyperthermia will drain -20 water from you per second. The effects of hyperthermia only drain water, is actually easier to combat than hypo thermia (which drains health and blood). Drinking plenty of fluids and following the below steps will help cure your hyperthermia.

If you are suffering from Hyperthermia you need to quickly lower your core body temperature.

Remove clothing items Take a dip in the sea, a lake or a pond. This makes your clothing items 'wet' or 'soaked'. Be careful not to drown! Expose yourself to rain Climb to higher altitudes

Temperature system, please let us know in the comments below! This guide will be kept updated as new patches tweak any of the body temperature details.
