I just like running around with a backpack full of books.
I assume with a private server you can set a password?
I have taken down my epoch taviana server now. There has only been one person actually playing on it for the past two months so I thought it maybe time to just shut it down and maybe start over.
I have been reading on dayz forums that the mod is practically dead since rocket will not interact with the people he left in charge of the mod. Rocket pisses me off more and more with his lies. He plainly said the mod would not die and would continue to get updates.
I am going to attempt a different type of server so if anyone has any ideas let me know
why not just plain vanilla?
I could. Was thinking of going back vanilla with epoch mod and easier base building. This would be nice.
while i have no idea what epoch mod is or base building i do wish these alpha games would get their act together. the thing stopping me from dropping $30 on this game is the disorganized community. It reminds me of the early days of Minecraft where the end user, ie gamer, gets pulled in all different directions. just give me a straight up game. build the world and the objects and be done with it. having mods and what not split up the community. it makes it harder to play as a group since people in the group want to use different mods/maps/etc. games are supposed to be fun where you sit down, fire it up, and enjoy part of your day. sort of like the old days of NES were you popped in the cartridge and knew what you were getting. now developers lack direction and the community splits itself using mods then end up broken or end up losing support from the devs. it just makes gaming a huge waste of time. /rant
The epoch mod is the best one that ever released for dayz mod. It has crafting and base building along with trader cities were you can sell items you find and buy weapons/tools/vehicles and other stuff. Also allows you to lock vehicles and bases you build so no one can steal.
Pretty easy to install just use dayz commander and install epoch mod
Hrm, that doesn't sound like the game's original intention at all.
Its original intent only gets you so far as in play ability. You spawn find food and dont die while that is cool for a short time you have to picture yourself in that situation such as in the walking dead show. Wouldn't you want to fortify a base and find a car then find a camp that has people you could trade with?
Gaming publishers have gotten too greedy with the "standard" approach to selling games. Rushed products, bugged products that are supposed to be final releases. I don't mind the selling of Alpha stuff. If it's a game you want, it's great since you generally get to test stuff out and leave feedback. On the other hand if it's a game you want but don't want to dish out money to play an Alpha game, you can always wait until it is "released" and buy it then.
of course, but i want that delivered in the game not in a mod. if the developer cannot support it then i am not going to put my money into his hands while others make mods to actually make his game playable. people need to stop supporting these types of games...
This is true but they are taking their sweet time when there is still a mod that in play ability is still far more advanced. I do hope to see the standalone have features of that of a nice modded server that we have today.
New server is up, DayZ Epoch Chernarus! AI missions, increased loot spawns, deploy bike, self blood bag, over 20 custom bases, build ANYWHERE!, FAST BUILD!
Ill hop on in a bit brandon, just re downloading A2 and OA.
Sounds good, I am waiting for Arma 3 to come down in price, but I have barely played my Arma II since I got frustrated with Dayz a year back.
Nice map Brandon!
Bloody hard on your own though....
Yea I have reduced the AI down pretty good but I tested it even lower yesterday but it made them useless and you can walk up and stand in front of them and they just stare at you. Wished there was a way to just make their aim really bad.
seems you cant hear me in side?
You have to type in side chat for it to show up in the console.
I play on Clanwarfare server it has alot of cool things but tends to lag a bit. The ip is 188.8.131.52:3000
I have tried to get into that server twice and it gets stuck at the end of receiving data
The server is laggy and slow loading but its got the action menu and the loop spawns are good. I think its just got too many mods running.
I may try to add that action menu to my server. Their mission file is well over 2MB which is stupid
When will DayZ Stand Alone be finished?
I have a heavily modded vanilla server.
www.battleborne.betaboard.net for information. Website is crappy, but I'm working on it lol.
There is no base building for users, but for regular members I will build a custom private base. (not donators, just people who play on the server alot.)
