  DayZ Zombie RPG Mod Community    

Rocket's, BI Developer, unofficial DayZ Zombie RPG has really kicked up a buzz over the last few weeks, with Kotaku describing his DayZ survival mod for Arma2 the "the most interesting thing to happen to PC gaming this year" and the "greatest zombie game of all time", and PC Gamer describing it as one of the most "important things to happen in gaming this year" and "gaming’s best story machine".

But just what is this DayZ thing, anyway? from GameSpy

It's not the lovechild of Jay-Z and Day[9], as I'd thought when I first saw the name flooding my Twitter list. Yeah, I was disappointed too, but in actuality it's even crazier than that. It's an open-world fight for survival, and by "survival" I don't mean "cover system." You'll be scavenging for supplies here, before hunkering down in an abandoned building and clutching your flimsy supplies to your chest, crying yourself to sleep and hoping the zombies won't use your time of rest to feast on you. The mod's big draw is the way it plays with your emotions -- players tend to develop close bonds with their avatars because there's no quickload button here. Death is for real -- and it can even happen at the hands of other players. Who can you trust to team up with and protect you? Who can you trust not to kill you for a can of beans?

The latest DayZ patch, aptly titled "More New Ways To Get Fucked Up", adds all sorts of realism-strengthening goodies, such as illness and a temperature system. You'll need campfires to keep warm, but let's hope they don't draw the attention of any sick, desperate players seeking medicine.

"Arma2 has shot back into the Steam sales charts and has even topped sales for the week and looks set to do that again," says a Bohemia Interactive spokesperson in a press release. People have clearly been buying it again to give DayZ a try -- a quick glance of my Steam friends list at any given moment of the day seems to confirm this.

Have you been playing? What's the longest you've managed to stay alive? Oh man. Hey. Why are you staring at me like that? We can share these antibiotics, you know. There's no need to kill anybody.

  Faysh khabur 1.0 by =KCT=Blackmamba Addon release    

=KCT=Blackmamba has released an updated Faysh khabur v1.0 terrain on the BI Forums. Arma2 CO -BAF-PMC needed.

Situated in Iraq’s far north, the province of Dahuk is famous for its snowy winters.
The border crossing near the town of Zakho is Iraq’s primary border crossing with Turkey.
dahuk has also a border gate with Syria known as the Faysh Khabur border gate.
The main trading route from Iraq to Turkey runs through Dahuk,
this could bring economic gain as cross-border trade increases.
Some villages were destroyed or evacuated since 1988 due to insecurity and other problems like poverty and loss of essential resource,
for these reasons people migrated from their villages to sub-district centres,
living in public buildings or sharing houses with other families.
In general, roads are in good condition except some far located villages that are hard to access, especially in winter.

The terrain is based on actual hight and satalite data.
and depicts the southern part of dahuk and its main trade route with turkije and sirya.
Its a pretty deserted area with some small village's, three bigger towns.
At the moment there is a border crossing with sirya.
most villages are placed pretty much where they would be in real life some are changed in to industrial area's or
Underground factory's, the city's have a fictional layout.
The terrain lends itself perfectly for longrange sniper mission's,
escape and evade wich would be a hell of a challenge, convoy missions,tank battle's etc etc.
The terrain is divided in two, the river Tigris is crossing the entire 400 square kilometer map.
There are two bridges to cross it but u can find your way trough shallow water,
even with armored vehicles or Make use of amvibious vehicles for troop transport.
its up to u.


v1.0 changelog

Fixed: Some Sat/Mask issues.
Fixed: Sand texture (Normal/Paralax Map).
Fixed: Entrances to Airports (AI Friendly).
Fixed: AI issues in city "Fayshkhabur".

  Jungle Wars: Island of Lingor v1.4 released Addon release    

IceBreakr has released an updated Island of Lingor v1.4 on the BI Forums.

This lush green environment in a fictional country somewhere near the Equator. Inspiration were countries such as Venezuela & Colombia. ~9 months were spent on research and creation of this world.
Reason for the project is that I've been waiting for years for a proper optimised jungle map. With help of great talented man Berghoff that is now (after 9-10 months of hard work) possible to enjoy.
We have to understand that vegetation rich map is a whole different matter in BIS engine. PCs that were able to run Duala/Jade Groove on max settings & view distance of 10 km will probably only have sufficient FPS with 1000-4000 meter distance on Lingor. With months of optimisations (especially Berghoff did an amazing feat here) we can now enjoy jungle from air or from a grunt's perspective.

Another inspiration is making of this map is a board game by a genius Stefan Dorra named Amazonas, that I just love. Board game features a nice amazon river and many villages to occupy. Hopefully Lingor scenery is a bit similiar with the river setting. But its much more - explore and I'm sure you will get nice ideas for missions.

Heartpoint of an island is a big town on East named Maruko. Its a town ruled by a dictator that lives in his mansion compound in center of town. It features an army base and a large airport for all kinds of operations. Town is surrounded by jungle on W and South. Road then leads throught it to South and West. Its the main paved road that connects the whole island. Amazon-like river splits the somewhat urban part on North and totally rural on South. South is also the home of ARL rebels. In the West you'll find numerous smaller towns that GAL (Government Army of Lingor) protects due to economic and strategic importance.

Rivers banks are not steep as in many of my older maps and mangrove vegetation covers most of the banks. Only few places are suitable for ship landing, but smaller boats are the main transportation device around here anyway.

Jungles have foot-path trails and couple of farms are situated under thick canopy trees. Not all of the jungle is thick as farmers cut it down, so pilots are able to touch down on many clearings and drop off/pickup troops close to the enemy positions.

There are no bridges due to AI bugs (they can't handle well the crossings), but couple of shallow passings enable you to cross the river. At least where there is no rain when rivers like to flood.

- V2 signatures for all island files

  P82 - Project 82 Falklands/Malvinas war Minimod launch Community    


CimaleX has submitted this new about P82 - Project 82 Falklands/Malvinas war Minimod launch and is asking the community for help, support and time.

Hi to all the community !
Last month in a forum thread I was discussing that 30 years after the Falklands/Malvinas conflict (2nd April 1982 - 14th June 1982) no one seemed to be interested in a dedicated mod for ArmAII, no dedicated mods were available, curiously the addons related to that conflict have been made for other mods; basically because after Ofp in the FLK closed, many of those great addons were shared to some modders, but no one related to the south atlantic conflict.
I asked first 1982 Ofp in the FLK and to MLV Mod if they were interested in this project, after I received a positive feedback I decided to begin a project to port some of the addons into ArmA2 in a Mini-mod.

"Project 1982 - the Falklands/Malvinas war to A2" starts officially, with the aim to make a Mini-mod until A3 is out, to rise the interest for this issue and then make an official team for A3.
Doing a mini-mod by a single person is a difficult task, so I asked help to some artist to make a few addons (basically troops, that due to the different skeleton from A1 to A2 have to be rebuilt) and to retexture/rearrange some of the already existing stuff ported to A2 (eg some vehicles, aicraft, choppers etc...)

I received direct and indirect support from various artists (like CBFASI, LoRo, Konyo, Vilas, Pedagne Mod-ASZ, Trouble, GossamerSolid and others) who accepted to give me their effort in developing the Project.
The aim is to have a basic amount of weapons (based on Vilas West Pack), troops, vehicles and aircraft, while for the island/terrain I chose the good (but still incomplete - lack of objects) Falklands test 40x40 km terrain made by Bushlurker.
Several MP and SP missions were developed for A1 and await the new addons to revive with new Mini-mod.

There's no timetable at the moment as I don't want to press anyone involved with the project (and again I have to thank all the artists/modders involved for donating their already limited freetime) but soon as this presentation is out, the first addon should be ready for release.

If anyone of the community wish give us support and time, please contact me via PM.
