    Been here since the very start. I am the account #63. Though i feel fairly invisible due to standalone, most of my activity drops around the mod and desolation days.

    I'm not a fan of DayZ Standalone at all and would be down to play on a better game for rp if we had one. That being said, Desolation in its current state is buggier than DayZ, the map can't be accessed by half the players, the game runs like shit for me and I'm not a fan of TFR. So that's why I'm sticking with standalone over arma 3.

    Every time I see this opening my will to live is sapped a little more. But anyway onto the topic. If you really have to tell people how to press a button go outta the way and take the five more seconds to type it out. Then if they still don't know by all means link the guide.

    Our website is powered by a community system called Invision Community (aka IPS). A new update for IPS version 4.2 is currently in beta and should be released within a month or two. This will mean quite a lot of changes on the website and some of them directly affect your content and customizations. You can read this thread on IPS website to read more about what's new. I will be performing a clean install of the community on version 4.2 which means a lot of custom content will be deleted to both increase performance and get rid of issues that were caused by the original migration to this website system back in November 2016. Some of these issues include profile problems, warning points not expiring, low website performance, broken Steam integration and other smaller issues that I haven't been able to resolve. We will also get a new look for the website, with a lighter theme and less overwhelming red everywhere. A screenshot of an early version of this theme can be found here. I will also use that opportunity to do major in game changes we've all been waiting for - lore wipe. As a member there's a few things you will need to think about before the update hits. Here's a list of items that you as members have to note and prepare for and in some cases back up your data. At the same time as I will do the website update we will also do the long awaited lore wipe - the lore will be replaced with a new one. The in game timeline will be reset. All groups and characters will be deleted along with all data associated with them. Back up your data if you want to keep your content! We obviously have backups in case some data needs to be desperately restored in the future, but it will be done as an exception only! Group system on the website will be replaced with a new one so all new groups after the lore wipe will be created in this new system. Factions will be no more, along with settlements. A rule enforced safe zone will replace those with a lore faction as owners. The lore faction and its safe zone will be introduced some time into the new lore, once it makes sense story wise. You can discuss the safe zone here. Profile customizations and settings will be wiped. That means your avatar, cover photo, signature, profile background, profile music and other Premium settings will be reset. Background music for your profiles or characters will no longer be possible to be uploaded directly to the server, instead you will have to upload the file to somewhere else and then link to it. Old warnings carried over from the old website will be deleted. Yes, after 5 years we are doing an amnesty on your old wrong doings and removing your history. Only warnings issued on this new website will be kept (so everything since November 2016). Final warnings however will be kept and re-added. Some of the custom features on the website won't be ready when we do the upgrade, so we may temporarily lose some of the functionality and extra features that we currently have. You have a month before the lore wipe, use this time wisely and finish off old business that you have with characters or groups. Back up all your character and group data if you want to keep it for future generations. There will be a event series that gives some kind of closure to the current lore. Questions about that should go to the LoreMaster team. The update is scheduled for JULY 23rd (Sunday). The new website and servers with new lore will open on July 24th, on DayZRPs 5th anniversary.

    1. I am not going to drop $29.99 on DLC for a project that will most likely be gone within the next few weeks/months, sorry, that's just how it is with side projects here. 2. I have no interest in playing Desolation unless it's something COMPLETELY unique. The only way I would play it is it something were achieved similar to the mod in Frankie's videos.

    Unfortunately I've been away for a few days so I only was able to spend a couple hours on Desolation but I'll be sure to play plenty of it when I get home today. Regarding the argument at hand, here's my piece. In 2013, I, along with thousands of others purchased Standalone hoping that this would be the perfected version of the mod that we had all grown to love over the last year and a half. The first playable version of the game was very rough, but we all knew that we would have to give the developers time. We then received a roadmap with a approximate release date for BETA being around Christmas of 2015. I was willing to wait that long, because I could see the potential in the game and I wanted it succeed. Well for a few reasons I had to stop PC gaming entirely for about 2 years. I got back into PC gaming early 2017 and I re installed DayZ expecting what had to be a full game right? It had been four years since the release of the game. What I got instead was a slap in the face. The game wasn't even in Beta, rather it was still in Alpha and it had been there for four years. Four fucking years. Well I watched some YouTube videos and did some research and I read the DayZ Dev's reasons for Delay and I felt cold resentment. This isn't what I had signed up for. Well now Desolation is in the scene. It's on a very trustworthy and tested engine. It's FULLY moddable and already has many great features that Standalone doesn't. In regards to this being on Arma 3, and you having to buy Apex. Have we already forgotten that the mod was on Arma 2 and you had to buy Arma 2 OA to play it? This is exactly that expect it's better, and the Fed's are motivated and are actually pushing out updates instead of continuously hyping up this BETA that has been in the works for far too long. I hate DayZ, I hate it so much because it's betrayed me. Obviously I play it a shit ton but that's simply because my love for this server is greater than my disdane for StandAlone. I want Desolation to succeed and I believe it will, but in order for it to, we all must put the two games in perspective.

    Alright the graphics are a bit of a rip off and they are just obnoxious in terms of their size. Don't try to lean on an awesome video game in another universe for a theme or a group name. Seems like you wouldn't have a name. Most people would just do their thing and wouldn't feel the need for a name but maybe you could pull a Lost Souls or have it to where the theme or slogan of the group is the name but isn't spoken IC. "The last days is group based on hard-core survival role-play group." Please explain the difference between someone in a separate group surviving and how this group is "hard-core". Surviving is just staying alive, it doesn't say much and that is generally what is expected. "I aspect people who wish to join to provide the group and external people with the best roleplay they can provide." Sounds good, but that is the expectation of this community and is the norm. No need to mention this, the more you put on the thread the less people are going to read. "The people who will be role-playing as younger members of groups eg under 17 will not be given a gun." Why not? From an IC perspective at least. It is an Outbreak and a little explanation and reasoning would be neat, but the idea of not giving younger people a gun could be an interesting rp exchange if you catch somebody concealing one. Do whatever it takes to survive. Are you going to do "whatever" or will you still stay within the lines not being a hero or bandit? Survive anyway possible. Redundancy? Get to know other groups and forces. Is that not what most groups do? Unless they hide and avoid contact. Make difficult choices for the group. Does the leader make this difficult choice? I don't see how this makes sense for a IC goal. Learn from our mistakes. How do you quantify this? It has to be attainable, even if it is far-fetched. Just seems like filler along with everything that every other group already does. No military clothes guns, clothes, etc. Why not? If you aren't wearing it to avoid attention that is cool, but a bit more explanation on this would be good. Seems you would wear or carry what would allow you to survive the best. If you and a group of people start the Outbreak together then that explains why you are a group, but I get a 3 years into the Outbreak kind of vibe. The hardcore survival theme undercuts the entire point of the Lore wipe. You'd still be trying to figure the state of the world and what to do, but from what I have gathered it seems this group is just a pre-baked group for two years down the line or more. The goals are mostly not goals, they are just notions and ways of treating people and things, you have to have something attainable or at least something tangible. There has to be some measure of progress that someone could actually take note of ICly. Sure goals change and shift with focus and course of rp, but it would be better to have no goals than to have intangible phrases and slogans that does not constitute anything concrete. There are far too many "basic bitch survivor groups" out there. If you take away the story and graphics you could essentially cut and paste them. There is nothing particularly unique or innovative here other than the little bit of story you added. The graphics are just distracting and detract from the meat of the thread. Be simple, don't just shit out a ton of phrases that are not goals. Refer to this thread. I know how he got here and what they want to do. The thread is fairly original, generally unused as a concept, and says more by being concise and saying less. You pmed some 230 people in this community for this group. If you want the foundation for a good group, start out with a character and let him accrue more and more folks that he meets. Having a massive group of wandering survivors just feels circlejerky and less authentic. Come up with a basic story for a handful of folks, explain why they are in Chernarus, what they want to do, and then let rp and hostilities take it from there. This just feels a bit forced and rigged. Explain why things within the group are the way they are. You don't need a Lore to set something up now that will take off and be great in the Outbreak. Be original and flush the graphics, make interesting characters, and go from there.

    I mean I'm all about story's developing ic and all that. But people are gonna play with who they are going to play with. No real need to limit it with more rules. I'm sure plenty of people are going to make characters that knew each other before and we're in groups together before the infection. While I see what your saying in the sense of in game character progression and all that, I just don't think it should be forced on people who would rather group up day one and have back stories explaining it.

    *Jimmy would scowl as he listens to the radio call, and just shakes his head as he looks over at Harper and Luina giving them a simple shrug before picking up the radio and pressing the PTT.* "Oh don't worry Murdock, you don't have to worry about Luina at all anymore, you see it turns out she really doesn't like being a prisoner on an island! Turns out she also isn't the biggest fan of being bitten...that's a little fucking kinky Murdock...I know you only have men on that island but jeez. I think we're gonna go on a nice warm vacation out West though, you have fun on the island Murdock hunting down small scared women.". *He would release the PTT and set the radio down on the table, smirking over at Lunia and Harper letting out a small chuckle.

    The fact that our public forums can make a newcomer such as yourself feel apprehension about being here is a far bigger problem than this safe zone. The forums offer some of the best and worst aspects of this community, this thread has devolved into the latter. Your comment classifies as the former. Hopefully people see that and realise that its people like you who matter the most in this community: the newcomers.

    So, I just got whitelisted here, and I'm not going to give my two cents on the safe zone because I haven't experienced anything on DayZRP yet. What this whole thread does do, is make me think twice about wanting to RP here. Clearly, most of you have "spirited" opinions on THIS subject, but I hope when I start reading the other topics, they aren't this negative. Please be respectful of both "sides" opinions and try to see things from other peoples points of view. Thank you.

    Seriously, Chernarus is like 256 square K, minus water, and y'all are mad that a tiny little island that you've probably visited once and doesn't fill a single square K can't be attacked? Pish.
