    Thanks Sleepyhead. Well done everyone, @sh4wzy @YO_MIKE @Drake @Imation11 you've all worked hard on making this group and developing some in-game lore.

    Neat little group you've got here. I see no reason to not accept, but I would like to see one or two more goals that have specific dates to aim to be completed by. Yeehaw. Best of luck & congratulations x

    He's a busboy, what are you promoting him for? Don't isolate yourself now, that is the worst thing you could do. It really sucks and I hope you make it through it fine.

    I know DayZRP wants to keep mod use from DayZRP devs but this looks nice. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1644467354 UPDATE: Maybe too saturated. I haven't been in game with this mod but others in the steam comments say it is too much. Just posted because it's nice to see map changes.

    Ivan Malkovka Hello all! My character, Ivan Malkovka, has been a character of mine since late 2014, early 2015. I have developed him over a span of years at this point, and one of the features I put the most thought in was his tattoo's. Ivan is a Russian Mobster and one of the facets that were fairly important for developing him, and also interesting for me, were his tattoo's. For those who may not know, tattoo's are a form of communication and criminal expression for the Russian mob, especially during the soviet era. They communicate prison sentences, criminal accomplishments, the type of criminal you are, etc. Scenes like the one in Eastern Promises before Viggo gets his eight pointed stars is an example of how they would strip you and inspect the tattoos you have to better understand the type of criminal you are. Eastern Promises Deadly Code (Siberian Education) It took me countless hours of watching movies, like Eastern Promises and Deadly Code (Siberian Education), and researching the Russian Mob and Russian Mafia Tattoo's to finally get a mindset of what they mean, as well as what tattoo's I would want him to have. I have spent a good amount of time in Gimp trying to 'tattoo' body canvases so that I can visually represent the tattoo's that my character is covered with. Most of the tattoos I have on him have some sort of meaning, while others are more for aesthetics. In this thread, I will showcase some of the pieces of work I have completed in Gimp to share to you all. These images are subject to change and may not necessarily be final, but they are close to what I would want for him. Please, if you have any constructive criticism, I would be more than happy to hear it. Enjoy! This first image is a simple one. It showcases a spider hand tattoo (pretty much indicating that he is a thief) as well as an anarchy ring tattoo (middle finger for his distaste in authority), skull ring tattoo (index finger for that is the finger he uses to pull the trigger), and a cat (kot) tattoo (ring finger, showing that he is married to the criminal lifestyle. The cat, or kot, is a common tattoo indicating a thief or a criminal.) I know that it may be hard to see in this picture, but there will be more to come! This next one is how I would want the front of him to look. The cross is known as the thieves cross. Pretty much indicating a criminal. the virgin Mary and child is a symbol often used for good luck, at least for Ivan that is what it means. Though many tattoo's worn by Russian Gangsters are religious in nature, they often don't indicate that the wearer is religious. there are other meanings, usually. The doves indicate, for Ivan, freedom and the future. the rose on the abdomen indicates that he turned 18 while in prison. I might change this up later, but it looks good for now. Women often have different meanings depending on their position and where they are worn. In Ivan's case, it is mainly just for aesthetics. The barbed wire indicates that he has been a prisoner. Most of the time though each barb represents a sentence served in prison. The stars on his shoulder is a common one seen on Russian Mobsters in movies. They indicate high rank and a great distaste towards authority. Usually only the most respected can wear these, or you have to do something tremendous to earn them. The dagger through the neck indicates a murderer, often times for hire. The blood coming from the 'wounds' indicate the number of murders he committed. There are still more to be added. the cards on his right breast are a joker (criminal symbol), Jack, and King. these often indicate rank, and it is what they indicate for Ivan as well. Pretty much everything in this one is some semblance of good vs evil. The lion and lnake, angels and demons, the scales of justice, etc. The eyes though mean that he is always watching, like eyes on the back of his head (or i guess back). The tzar crown is a symbol of high rank/respect. The banner with the Russian writing says something like "A dance with the devil lasts a lifetime" This one is unfinished, but I really liked how it turned out so far. The churches, or kremlins, indicate that the wearer has served time in prison, with the number of domes indicating years served. Ivan's has 4 domes. The sunrise, lighthouse, and dove indicate his love for freedom. The candle is for aesthetics right now, but I'm sure I'll come up with something! This one could be finished, but I might do some editing/additions in the future. Just gotta figure out what though. The reaper indicated death, or that he has caused death/he has killed. The hour glass is a symbol that we all have a time limit and given the path he is down, he may not have much time left. The crown of thorns indicates something regarding a disrespect for snitches or rats. I'm not sure what exactly it means, but it is something along those lines. The Russian text says "He who talks wears the crown" Thanks again for the views and any feedback is welcome! As you can probably tell, a lot of work and thought went into this, however I am open and very welcome to constructive criticism. There will be more to come and I will post when things are updated. New images will be added when they are completed. Dasvidanya!

    Same thing happened to me brother. Childhood sweetheart told me, in October, she needed a "biology tutor" to help her pass her exams, which she needed to get into Uni, and that I couldn't see her on Wednesdays anymore. She broke up with me new years day, told me nothing, and strung me along for a month. I came to find out through a few different friends that her tutor had been giving her practical exams for a solid two months behind my back. She even admitted to going on a number of dates with him because I had to cancel our dates, due to my grandma been in hospital, to a close friend of mine. Putting that aside, this will sound cliche but its the truth, it does get better. I know how you're feeling right now, I know it doesn't feel like things are gunna get better, but they eventually do. I nearly drank myself into a coma when my GF broke up with me, I never thought I would get over it, she was the girl I'd been crushing on since we were young. But now, I just laugh about it and if I saw her again, I'd thank her because you don't need people like them in your life, its better to get this shit over and done with than say 10 or 15 years down the line. The one thing that helped me more than anything to get over it all was using the fact that my ex cheated on me as fuel, and you should do the same. If they have the capacity to do something that scummy to you then, simply, fuck them. They don't deserve to be in your life and hell, been a cheat is a label that always sticks with people. Her fling with this new guy won't last, they never do. My ex and her biology tutor lasted from January till the end of Feb and then she was back in my messages asking for forgiveness, you've gotta stay strong and move on. Don't let her walk over you and then take her back, it might be hard but you have to stay strong. Get your ass into the gym, get some new clothes and a haircut and make yourself feel good about your image, and make god damn sure that she's jealous and regrets everything shes done. Last thing I wanna say is this, if you're ever needing someone to talk to, hit me up anytime TL;DR Same thing happened to me, ex lied for two months saying she was seeing a biology tutor, turns out he was giving her practical exams the entire time. Shit gets better, it might not seem that way now, but it truly does. Better she showed her true colours now then say 5 more years down the line. Use her actions as fuel. Fuck them and fuck what they did to you, its one of the ultimate scum bag acts and its a label that will always stick to them. Get yourself some new clothes, get your ass into the gym, and make sure she regrets for every second what she did to you. If you ever need someone to talk to, hit me up whenever you need to.

    Maybe on paper it looks amazing. Yes, a fresh start, amazing new ideas (usually based on trending games or shows...), new changes. But you say that 'WE' make a difference. I'm glad you sincerely believe, that after lorewipe all the boredom from current lore will dissapear, because apparently now "WE" are unable to make a difference but in new lore we'll make things work. New Lore = new me! It's not like the current lore is a giant wall around our RP. We have millions of possibilites what to do, yet everything is boring. Not sure if you've watched South Park (and not sure if I remember correctly that it was in that show), but in one of the episodes called "Simpsons Did It!", they were trying to come up with something original. Sadly every idea they had was shut down by "simpsons did it!", meaning that the idea/prank/story was already shown in Simpsons. By now in DayZ we're at "Simpsons did it!" point. It's hard to create something new, something that wasn't there, something orignal. Groups on forum pages look amazing, interesting, "CANT WAIT TO SEE" on the paper, but usually they are the same group of people with similiar type of RP and nothing changes. The game does not offer us new tools, even the basebuilding is not worth the time (due to crash related wipes), so how will a lorewipe change anything? Maybe for first week or two somebody will be scared of infected, somebody will be a true civilian in need of help etc, but sadly after that it's gonna fall on the same tracks. Friends from old lore will stay together, form together groups, same conflicts will re-appear under different names between "new" factions. There are literally no IG mechanics/goal that could support new lore. No soft skills to grind, no trully persistent buildings (bugs), no impact on the map (terraforming, deforestation etc), anything to work for tbh. There are no losers, people are stubborn to bend under influence of stronger groups, because only thing that can happen to them is death. And you don't lose to much when you die. I fell in love with Life is Feudal because you could build giant settlemets, capture areas with strategic resources and due to it trade. It wasn't a perfect game but at least base-building worked... but that's for another topic Listen, I won't stop anybody from the lorewipe, honestly I would love to play during the lore, when one could RP that he was born after outbreak (be it +20 or +120 years since outbreak), but it's gonna be similiar to the situation around 2015/2016: 1. Community: I wish we could remove zombies, they are really annoying, don't need them 2. Dayz Devs: Conviniently Zombies get bugged, devs leave only 2-3 zombies on whole map 3. Community: Without zombies there's no threat, no point in playing, servers get empty, sadface. Long story short: We are to blame for boring RP in current lore. In new lore there will still be "We" factor that will make things boring again. How will new lore change neverending wars/players mentality? The new lore need support of something COMPLETELY FRESH like new game mechancis, addons, etc.

    I know I'm relatively new here and I apologize if I'm coming off a bit strong but... Why would a lore wipe change the way people role play? A lore wipe means nothing if we haven't reached an interesting conclusion with most people on one side or the other. To be completely honest, while the recent ceasefire is interesting, it seems to me like there is a general lack of antagonists within the Server. Unfortunately, most role-playing is reactionary. Without these antagonists, there will be no call to arms, no conflicts of interest, and will generally create a more "Fluid" type of role play. Antagonist (Bandits, UN, Groups, etc) seem to have little to no push or pull on the actual happenings of the server as a whole. For example after the battle in Novaya, one would think that the victors would've consolidated their holdings there, and maybe they try to set up a semi-permanent residence. If they would, it would create something that represents what the lore actually can complete. To me the lore seems more arbitrary than anything else because there is no real evidence of it meaning anything at all. Sure you hear about it around the campfire in Green Mountain but I've come across a lot of people (Myself included) that have never ran into the groups that are shown as significant by the lore. It's mostly just people grumbling something about them once and a while before returning to the "My name is xxx and I'm from xxx, want to team up?". What I'm getting at is the lore holds little to no sway over the status quo of the role-play from average peon to peon. With a lack of agitators it doesn't matter if we wipe the lore or not, it will just return to the same watered down roleplay with an event here or there. Nothing against anyone who is running those groups or the event organizers it's just how role playing becomes as a whole. For more context on that concept, look up the problems with a Sandbox style RP as we share a lot of traits with it. tl;dr A lore wipe won't do anything if the groups in the server don't try to affect a larger swathe of players other than the groups they represent

    2 days after she's with the dude she cheated on you with. This is gonna suck to read, but this chick didn't love you dude. All I can recommend is filling the time that you would have with her, with something more productive like the Gym, School work, family or instead of reserving Saturday for the boys, gather the lads and get down the pub for a few pints and laughs (don't make this a regular thing, of course!). Have some time to yourself, earn some money at work and buy yourself stuff for YOU. You've spent 5 years working your ass off to get shit for her, start spoiling yourself for a change. The 5 years you effectively lost because of this trash, get them back and have some fucking fun. Good luck man.

    Easier said than done! There appears to be a consensus on the idea that a lore wipe, even with a new lore, isn't enough to keep the same post-wipe patterns from happening. Most people also agreed that staff-driven events would make the lore much more interesting and keep it moving instead of letting it reach a standstill. The problem lies however in the fact that the event team is grossly understaffed. Get @Major a few motivated Eventmasters that are ready and willing and stress-resistant and I'm game. Until then ...

    Even if the devs could create a map that much bigger it would probably be empty and lacking content, and that's setting aside all the other problems with the idea.
