AREA B4

Safe Zone Page

I'm introducing a safe zone trial. The safe zone will be called Area B4 and will be located north of Severograd. The goal with this area is to introduce a hotspot for players to safely trade, do peaceful RP and casually find other role players to play with. While this area is open to all players at all times, the safe zone aspect of it will be enforced according to the schedule below, these are all server time (see top right):

  • 15:30 - 17:30
  • 21:30 - 23:30
  • 3:30 - 5:30
  • 9:30 - 11:30

Basically, the camp will be a safe zone four times a day for 2 hours. About 2,5 hours before a restart the camp will open, and 30 minutes before a restart the camp will close.

 

Now to the safe zone aspect of it. First, some definitions and clarifications:

Camp status - visible on the DayZRP website below server time and on the safe zone page. Always check it for latest status. In game messages will also be sent to all players in game informing about the camp opening soon (30 minutes prior), opening, closing soon (30 minutes prior) and closing.

Camp area - camp area is defined by the map above. The definition of the camp area is the area marked with a border plus VOIP range from the border.

 

During the time the camp is open the following rules are in effect:

  • No hostile actions may be taken against other players. That includes but is not limited to baiting, stealing, provoking, shit talking, acting hostile, aiming at with weapons, initiating or shooting.
  • Events with mutual consent from all involved parties may disregard the above rule for a limited time, for example to be able to arrange fist fights, duels etc. (basically to allow for player created events)
  • Any players or group members whose groups have committed a hostile action within the last 2 hours may not enter the safe zone area.

While the camp is closed, regular rules apply just like on the rest of the map.

 

If you disagree with these rules or you believe that your characters RP would not go well with the goals of this area, please do not visit it. Feel free to hang outside of it or visit the pub in Severograd.

The trial will last for approximately 2 weeks. On 2017-10-15 we will evaluate your experiences in a dedicated thread with a poll consisting of a few questions about different aspects of the safe zone. Depending on the poll outcome we will get rid of the safe zone, modify it (by for example changing location or rules) or keep it.

Well, at this point in the DayZ life cycle, I'd be willing to try anything. I hope this doesn't turn into a troll fest but we'll see. I hope to swing by in a few days.

A few.

- It's not active 24/7 so that people don't grow roots in there and never leave it, making the rest of the map desolate.

- The short story of the safe zone is that the site can only be visited during the day as it gets bad at night. The closing hour of the safe zone is when it starts to get dark in game.

- We have 4 restarts a day, which goes well with those hours

Makes sense, thanks for the clarification.

@Rolle Hey big Man quick question. Do we all already know about said safezone IC or is it still unknown to the people?

Thats a good point. I guess its metagaming if you use this information on a safe zone IC.

You're free to inform your character about it in whichever way you like.

So like IC my character has a little radio station he does. Would it be considered any type of offense if he broadcasted about said safe zone?

Would there be people IC monitoring the camp? In more simple terms, what's stopping a group of bandits running through and initiating on some people within the camp's perimeter.

The rules. The same thing that stops the bandits from KoSing you with a sniper rifle from 500m away.

Fair enough. Could people volunteer as security or something?

You're free to role play what you want as long as it's within the community and safe zone rules :) I bet there will be a bunch of people who will be interested to role play some form of a security force, perhaps even a group will be created. But note that there are no official safe zone peacekeepers and all players are equal within the safe zone.

It all plays out IC. Roles and Ideas should be played out through In character interaction.
I know my group will take over the bar & hospital up there whenever we're in the safezone. We're here currently and nobody else is so #claimed :P

Well it seems that all the safe spacers will now be able to be protected by a big bubble, free from all the hate of the real world...

What a fucking shite idea. 

I mean fuck me, logging in and out only in safe zone hours, fucking hell does the electric go off around the wall so that's when people can go in and initiate? Jesus christ. 

@Rolle Not gonna lie mate, it's fucking shite.

Personally I don't like the idea, but I don't think a trial period could hurt. If anything I respect the idea to give it a try.

I didn't like the Idea at first but considering it could drive a lot of rp into one area, I'm all for giving it a try.
I'm not a fan of people being spread across the entire map hidden away. At least this will bring people together. (Hopefully, because right now I am the only one here)
