DayZ staff modder R4Z0R49 updated the mod’s official forums with the latest build notes for patch 1.7.7. Those who play the game quite often, or attend PAX East Q&A panels, will find several long-awaited changes in the build. Features such as the ability to combine mags (finally!), reduced slots for carrying fuel, and an increased compass size so you can actually read degrees will be available in 1.7.7. R4Z0R49 also mentioned that the chance for zombies to ignore unconscious players is in testing.
