    Hey there folks, so the LM’s have been discussing for a bit now about giving the players more of an option to go and experience more than just South Zagoria and Deer Island. After trying out an experiment on a few members of the community the LM’s have decided to give you folks the ability to officially “visit” these lands through a DnD (for babies) styled game for your travels. This will give you folk the ability to go and gain experience for your characters and tell your “Cannon” adventures on this thread. The thread itself is going to have a general history, information that every player can use as IC information along with an IC update post for the situation what is happening IG right now. From here, you can visit these areas, this could be anywhere in Chernarus right now. The idea would evolve it being able to go “outside” of Chernarus to Russia, Takistan etc. However right now we are going to focus on “smaller” areas and key areas of the current storyline to get some plot moving. So for the first location we are going to be focusing on a city that has been named a few times IG now, evolving around the events IG: Kirovograd. General lore from the perspective of the Chernarussian Defence Force from a public information folder: Kirovograd, we saw this city after the civil war as an important industrial revival for the new Chernarussian Government, with the support of the new regime and the ideals of a Chernarussian industrial rebirth, Kirovograd was for us our little spark in the modern world to bring Chernarus up from the ashes that the civil war had taken us. But prior to then, prior to the war and the bloodshed in Zagoria, Kirovograd traditionally was a fort city to stop the advance of any Takistani or other Muslim invaders up until the Russian communist uprising, from a fort city with a small mining sector into an example of Stalin’s “5 year plan”. Changing the entire city from a small block into a huge industrial sector, later on in soviet regime it was expanded upon even further with the building with huge amounts of apartment complexes and an installation of a medium sized military garrison in the area due to its old fortifications being renovated to modern standards. With tall, unified blocks typical of the era, she was a prime example of Soviet and Russian Engineering. A mix of both a mining town and a small military outpost by the river, Kirovograd served as a key military point during the Soviet time, as she was a connecting point to Novigrad and Zelenogorsk via the river as became one of the central economic points in Chernarus up until the fall of the Soviet Union to where the city suffered greatly after mass Russian investment left the lands and the lack of contribution of the Chernarussian Government, pushing Kirovograd into a huge economic slump, making it one of the poorest cities in Chernarus. It was not until after the Civil War and the reform of the New Government that Kirovograd became a project of revitalization of the country. From an abandoned old industrial city the new Government encouraged the private sector into investing and a huge public investment to reopen the steel works factories, reopen the river and make it an important trade stopping point from novigrad and finally reactivate the weapons factories and relicense new weaponry for the new state. At first this proved to be a great success for the Chernarussian Government as many South Zagorians who fled from the region after the war moved to the new revitalised city, helping with the process to bring the city back to life. Factories reopened and foreign investment helped in the long run for bringing back the city thanks to the NATO countries that gave economic support to Chernarus after the war. But as all was going well for the city and its region, it could not prepare itself for the outcome that would curse it in the long run. Once the infection hit Chernarus, Kirovograd became one of the most dangerous cities in the region. Due to its mass population and heavy growth it became one of the most unstable cities in the country. The military itself abandoned their posts after months of fighting the infected off, along with small hostile groups they finally went rogue against the fractured and broken CDF. There was little to no attempt to regain control by the CDF forces outside of the city after the infection hit once their radio went silent. This gave the chance for these small communities to start to grow and fester, some being friendly survivor groups while others began to pray on these groups, forming small bandit groups run by desperate worse for wear survivors with the “infected” being an ever growing threat for those who lived in the city. The one thing was clear inside Kirovograd, there was no centered power of government or control within her walls. As the outbreak grew, the smaller bandit groups started to work together, from small little groups of five to six people, they grew into small little factions of forty to fifty people, each one with a complex web of alliances between leaders and organizations. Some settling and claiming parts of the city while others roamed and scavenged what they could find. But one thing united them all under a banner: Survive at any cost, any way and by any means. The city began its slow decay into pure and utter anarchy, a city dominated by fierce battles for territory and supplies only to leave more and more dead spring up and be taken by the infection only to leave more and more “normal” people question whom the real enemy was. Was it the infected or those who lived in the city? After a year of the infection, small groups of people began entering the city from the outside, these people brought in trade, food and more importantly a foreign drug known to them as “comfort”. As time passed and a lot of influence from groups outside the city, working together with local “Raider” groups from inside the city, Comfort overnight became a staple item within the city. A city ruined by internal fighting and conflict, a drug that gives you the ability to forget all the issues one could experience does wonders for the mind. With this, witnessing that the Novigrad raiders were moving from the capital to the city of Kirovograd. The Chernarussian Government sent a CDF force of 400 well trained and well armed soldiers to reoccupy the city to stop the trade of comfort spreading any further away from Kirovograd. But after months of fighting inside the city a large part of the forces inside decided to like its predecessors go rogue against the CDF, only leaving a small part of the industrial sector under their control. From this point, the CDF has been trying to regain contact with this isolated force for the last few weeks and gain territory to the important industrial sector. Former US/Chernarussian forces that act like NAPA. This faction is going to be a rather small but rather powerful faction inside the city of Kirovograd. These people are going to be quite an isolationist group. The faction is going to be focused on self preservation mainly from fear of punishment for abandoning their military high command. These people are mainly traders in the city. The group was originally a CDF squad sent in to “clean out” the city, but after long periods of fighting they finally decided to stay in the city and abandon their orders. With this they took large stacks of military supplies along with encouraging outcasts from military organizations to join their ranks.These people trade with corrupt CDF personal along with anybody else they can find for more weapon supplies to defend themselves or any sort of valuable items that they can get their hands on. Structure: These people run by military ranks. The higher rank leads the people, they deal with their own promotions and their own structure outside of the CDF. However they do not follow protocol and do whatever needs to be done to get what they need. The current leader is a man known as Vasili Kirvosk. These people believe in keeping their ranks pure from the drugs and will execute on the spot any member of their force consuming “comfort” or any sort of drug in their system. Alcohol and tobacco is allowed within ranks however anything else will result in swift punishment or execution. Location: Their last known location is the their main Police Headquarters in the city that is protected by the river bank. Half of the HQ was more or less demolished by bombing but has been built back up and fortified into an outpost. Shipping containers were dragged in and set up around the concrete walls, and the bunker beneath the station expanded and connected to a local Soviet-era subway where they set up a large bazaar for selling their equipment to anybody willing to trade with this faction. Objective: Unknown These people are a mix of raiders from Novigrad and groups in Kirovograd, raiders that allied up with the comfort dealers. These people are not tactile nor are they a military force, they are run by an alpha system and have huge numbers (500 plus) however the group has had a stable leadership for a while now with little to no internal conflict for leadership. Their main objective is to spread the comfort trade around the city and the regions around it. To this point, their trade has been extremely successful, with the help of the original creators of the drug itself (Novochov and his crew) along with the current alpha (Eclipse “Inka Harlow” (girl)). They are mainly kept supplied through raiding CDF outposts and also taking more from the city, they get a huge amount of supplies through the comfort trade. Structure: The raiders are loads of different raider groups formed into one big pack, however the main structure belongs to the Raiders from novigrad and minor ones from Kirovograd. They also have a division of scientists (under Novochov) that are dedicated to the supply of comfort. The faction is run under the alpha system, extremely hostile to pretty much anybody they encounter. Location: The raider’s have their base located on the western side of the city, in the heavy industrial area by the bank. They control an old industrial factory and have converted it into a huge industrial powerhouse in the region. Reactivating the steel works industrial side along with a minor weapons factory they managed to occupy. Objective: Spread the comfort trade outside of Kirovograd. The slaver organization is a group of around about 80-100 people. These people do exactly what their name implies. They are slavers inside the city. They pick on any random survivor inside the city they can find and bring them into the slave market. Aiming for any age or gender they can find, these people are willing to put any price on any person that they find. The slavers themselves used to have greater numbers before the CDF tried to retake the city, the slavers have lost a lot of their numbers and have a general mistrust towards the Na Zare. Structure: The faction is led by a person under the name Themistoklis 'Ikaros' Bakalov and is one of the few people and organizations that survived since the original outbreak started in kirovograd. Location: They are mainly located in the central part of the city. A lot of their forces are spread throughout the city. They have bare basic materials as general survivors do, but they are great survivalists and have very good knowledge of the city in itself. They have occupied the old government buildings of the city and have it fortified into a strong civilian styled bunker/stronghold. From here they also operate their open market for slaves for those that dare to enter their part of the city. Objective: Unknown --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There have been reports of other factions from within the city itself, however we have been unable to gather information on them to confirm if they are real or not. We will be sending scouts into the city to try and gather information and update us on the situation from the inside. We highly recommend to anybody that wishes or has an interest in the city to stay away. It is not safe nor is it worth the time and effort to go there, only the craziest people would even consider trying to find what secrets those streets hide. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lore @StagsviewRB Graphics @RedSky

    Honestly have no idea why there needs to be posts longer than the book of kells disputing whether WIP group ideas should be allowed or not.. Simple answer, yes it should be okay. How are people supposed to achieve a minimum player count of 5 people if they are not allowed to advertise their group? Pming people to join your group isn't many peoples style. We have other countless pointless threads all across the forum, why not WIP.

    For the people that do not look on my profile: https://www.dayzrp.com/profile/34014-jobscholten/?status=81202&type=status I have posted something about discord bots there. To sum it up for you really quickly: It is a python discord bot that can check the last time played of all groupmembers. If you want to add this you at least need to know how to get python running, getting a discord bot and how to host a python file. (with correct libraries) I did not know where to post this, but I think it has a nice place here (thanks @Jamie for telling) It is just a suggestion for you to maybe add to your group's discord. (Only works with approved groups)

    I would like to remind people that with this lore it will give you the official option to visit kirovograd. All you need to do is DM a lorrmaster and we can organise ur trip. This trip is dangerous but also could result in reward. Your choice, each visit will progress the lore.

    I think you knew what I meant earlier without your 'oh no it isnt' reply too. I've seen groups closed with the post being 'you have failed to reach 5 members within the week. Group ideas need longer than a week to pick up members, some of us are lucky to have a loyal bunch of buddies that will jump on anything you make, resulting in you not having to worry about member count issues. Others and mainly new to the community players may not have that privilege and are just seen as a whitename with some generic group, give them a chance, remove the timelimit and allow WIP posts to be made. For me personally, when I was creating a group idea or editing a previous version before reopening my last group, I had to create a PM with myself in order to see how it looks on the forum, layout etc. I don't see the need to 'crack down' as such on one area of the forums where we have a forum section titled 'forum games' which is basically a rubbish pit apart from a few.

    Introduction: Hello there, traveller. So you would like to record, but you're not sure how. People say "use Shadowplay" but you don't have geforce GPU? Or you just simply don't like shadowplay and you're looking for another software. Well then, here you go - I may be not a specialist regarding this topic, but thanks to some basic research I've managed to setup working OBS - some settings and numbers you'll see in this guide are based on recommended setups. This guide is also based on my old guide from December 2015, but due to some simple UI changes and couple of people asking me about recording software, I've decided to update that baby. This guide is my take on quick and simple setting up. Since I've joined DayZRP community almost daily I go through solved reports to learn from them. It strikes me how many players don't have a video evidence - especially when one decides to roleplay as a bandit or tires to roleplay mental health issues, which may be percived as trolly. The following guide will show how to quickly set up recording in quality good enough for a possible report, even if you have a medieval PC (as I used to have when I've started playing DayZ, now I have a Renaissance one). You can adjust all the settings I will give but with the ones below I'm able to record all my gameplays (longest recordings lasting 6h) without a pause and any noticable frames drop. If there are any problems with this guide and some steps don't work, please let me know. If you have any questions, you can ask them here or reach out to me in a PM - I'll try to help if I can. Enjoy! Step 1: Getting OBS Get your OBS -> https://obsproject.com/ , pick desired system version, install it and launch it. Step 2: Pick what you want to record Now it's time to pick what you want to record. As on the image below, create a new scene: Rightclick the scenes window (it's going to be empty for you), click Add from the dropdown menu and then pick the name of the scene, for example "DayZRP.com". Now rightclick the window under the sources, pick Add from the dropdown menu and pick "Game capture" from submenu, as seen on image below. Name it. Start up DayZ and alt-tab back to desktop to make next steps easier. Now choose the settings as in the image below. As "Mode" pick "Capture specific window". You could probably go also with "fullscreen app" but I had some problems with that setting. As "Window" select your DayZ.exe from the dropdown menu (it should appear automaticly after running the game). Now scroll down a little bit and make sure that "Use anti-cheat (...)" is selected - this should prevent recording only blackscreen. If needed, check also "show cursor". Press Ok/Apply. If the preview window is still black, alt-tab back into the game, and once again into the desktop. Preview window should now show you the game. Step 3: Basic settings From the lower right corner of OBS pick "Settings" and go to Output tab. Video Birate -> depending on your machine specs, you can go with low number 2000-3000 for a low quality recording (that's still a viable proof) or higher qualities (I have 10000 setup for streaming/recording). The best way is to do some test runs and figure out how OBS is affecting your frames/game performance. I've recorded whole sessions on a very potatoe PC with birate set to 2000-3000, without any impact on the performace - but do some test runs! Encoder should be set to x264 - encoded files have smaller size then raw footage. If you don't see that encoder, you'll have to dowload x264 video codecs (QuickTime) or try other solutions. Recording path is a place on your drive where the videos will be stored. Recording format should be set either to .mp4 or .flv. If you're worried about OBS crashing and files being corrupted, you should go with .flv, as .mp4 files might get corrupted (according to the warning in OBS). Now go to Audio tab (below the Output tab) and add the audio devices you're using -> for me it's one microphone device and two audio devices. This strongly depends on your setup, and setup of your apps (like discord) that may be using different sources. Go to Video tab and just make sure that the desired resolution is set -> check Base (Canvas) Resolution. Now press "Start recording" and do some quick testruns. Review the test footage - if it's recording video, microphone and sounds correctly. I usally press start recording before starting up the game (unless I forget to start recording...) and stop it after I'm done (or you can alt-tab every now and then to stop/start, splitting this way session files into smalle chunks). Here are the examples of recording quality: 1. Bitrate ~3000 (video from 2015, old PC) 2. Current settings (as seen in images) Hope it helps with setting up your OBS. Have a nice day!

    Well, seeing as I was around for when we did away with [WIP] groups. I will explain why that is no longer a thing. This was a while ago so this might not be 100% but here are a few reasons I recall. 1. Clutter - WIP groups clutter threads, regardless if its in its own little sub section of the forums. Clutter is clutter, there should be absolutely no reason for a group not to have their shit together before posting it. 2. Members - Again regardless if you have a thread up or not, most groups that were WIP never got the requirements for members. You think that posting a WIP group would give exposure sure, but in the end it doesn't lure new members in. When the group isn't completely done, and not thought out. They will be like oh....its a WIP group meh. 3. Waste staff time - Some might know this, some might not. But the amount of wasted time on WIP groups was ridiculous. Back when I was an admin, and I am going to guess even now. It is not up to Mods or GMs to approve a group. Even from WIP to just an idea was a task. It was admins and lore masters. An when I was still in staff getting a LM and Admin together was not easy to do. There is no automation that happens, you and the LM sit there and read the lore check the activity of the players, check their roster, check the characters, check graphics, ect. Half the time they didn't have the members so we had to archive it. This happened over....and over...and over again. Until we decide to do away with WIP pages because it was just the same as an idea, but at least we knew the idea was done. With WIP there is a lot of stuff people leave out, and we are told. Oh its still being worked on.... You have nooo idea how frustrating it is...to remind people to finish their group pages until you have to archive it. Then you are the bad guy because you didn't give more time yadadad. -1 For me. Finish your idea then post it. Simple. (Edit!) Also....half of the time the OP archives the WIP because they end up losing interest or don't have people to play in that group. So again...just make it an idea..complete not WIP.

    Below we see multiple groups being closed for not finding 5 members to fill their roster in one week, by @Zanaan. I have taken screenshots for ease of viewing where some threads were closed for not having 5 members in the 'one week' time limit that is apparently not a thing but seems to be a thing. Notice the words: failed, one week & 5 members. I don't believe this is fair for these people trying to make a group to make a difference in the server or to simply to meet a bunch of like minded people to play with.

    Pretty basic, allow WIP groups to post in the "Group Idea" forum. I'll list off some Pro's and Cons that I can see. Basic premise will be that the groups will be allowed to post their idea, marking it [WIP] to easily distinguish which groups are currently in the running for being approved, and who is still building up their various arrangements that they need before they can be considered in the running to get approved. To finally be able to get into the running, all they'd have to do is simply get in touch with a Mod+ to have the title changed from [WIP] .... to their name. Some basic requirements I'd have for these [WIP] groups: - Quality like any other group page. - This means that it won't be a big block of text, but should still be formatted as any other group has done, as to ensure the quality of the thread and looks of the group. - Basic history - Ensure that there is a basic setup for the story, as to how and why they got to where they are now and why they're trying to achieve their goal. - Overall goal. Things to add in this WIP phase: - Fleshed out goals. - Roster. - Other miscellaneous stuff. Pro's: - Gets the word out there about the group. - Feedback can be taken early and they can therefore shape into the feedback, rather than going in headstrong into the running. - People will be able to see the idea of this group, and might be able to help by joining the roster, as that idea appealed to them. - Admins will be able to monitor them over a longer period of time. Seeing the growth of the group gradually. - You won't have people appearing on the roster due to the 5 man requirement only to then never have any actual RP with the group, but merely to fill the requirement (seen before) - Allows other groups to perhaps get in touch with them, allowing to help them via IC means to grow into a spectacular group later on when they hopefully get approved. Probably more but these are the ones I can list off the top of my head. Con's: - Tiny bit of extra moderation work. - The forum might get more cluttered. I'm sure some of you have more cons down below! Anyhow, these are my two-cents. Added poll because of democracy.

    The way group work right now is that you either have friends so you can make a group or you either don't so see you bye. If you want the place to feel more like a community let people post their ideas. Some will look at it and maybe join the group. It is correct that most of the cases it leads nowhere, but people can meet others this way, create some friends and maybe down the line try again now with more people behind.

    So you are saying an entire sub forum for 'forum games' is less clutter than actual topics that progress the community in the sense of roleplay? Personally my arguement is not against half written WIPs, its more along the lines of allowing groups the time to gain the members they need comfortably and not under pressure to gather then as quickly as possible along with being able to be given feedback on their idea and adjust it accordingly. Sure lets all count to 500 beans before an admin posts as a forum game instead of an actual group idea that may not be as generic as some.

    Hello there, I have been programming a discord bot for a little bit now and already got some positive respons on it. The bot can check activity of every group member. If you are interested in the code it is published on github: https://github.com/JobScholten/DayZRP-Activity-Checker Here you can copy the code and edit it. Pleas note: it does not run now, you still have to insert some things yourself (TODO) You also need to host it yourself, I suggest using heroku.com for that but it takes a bit to setup. The bot is made in python, so it will run almost everywhere. If you have trouble, just message me here on the forums or on discord (find JobScholten in the DayZRP discord group) (Just a little preview of what it looks like)

    This Group is the fucking Best RP I have ever seen. The rules say value Roleplay over Rule play but I see many groups that do not truley value that but this group 100% does. Plenty of situations that you guys could of just killed peeps but instead decided to go through with the RP and let it flow instead of killing the situation. @coolman23 Continues to impress me every time I run into you guys. When I think it cant get any better it does. @G_Date Had some wonderful Roleplay with you and @NightMar3rGamer with the Police force. Always fun to have some back up when taking people hostage. This group is a prime example of what RP on this server should look like from groups. You guys are fucking rockstars at RP and want to see it keep going. People should actually take notes on this group. Much love to all of you guys

    I believe that there is a lack of scarcity dayzrp. You can find everything you need where ever you go. There is nothing pushing people together. In an apocalyptic scenario like this, you can't loot the same town for almost two and haft years and still expect a can beans on the floor! That's the reason people are so spread out, and why most drama feels forced I can tell you where you can find a lot of people and settlements. They are by the only things on the map that has some level of scarcity, guns. That has been a fact since the beginnings of standalone. One suggestion, make food spawns rare in towns, and or move them to warehouse. This does two things; it encourages people to move to large towns, and it makes people take up some of the survival mechanics in-game. More importantly, what it does for RP. It encourages trade, and it legitimizes some professions in-game. The only thing that is worth trading in-game is guns and ammo, a want. If you add another tier to that, such as food ,a necessity, or medicine you will find that the people that have access to a lot of food can sell that for guns or protection. What this survival RPG needs are the survival aspect. There is no scarcity, the very thing that brought civility to the world. all there is is a utopia with a bit of forced drama.

    I agree with @Shanoby Have a 3 step process 1. You make the WIP idea in its own folder allowing ideas to flow and time to get members 2. It gets moved to ideas allowing the time to gain more members 3. It gets approved So far the average life cycle of a group when made approved is roughly 1-2 months and most of the time these groups just have the same members time and again. The current system means that someone that may have joined the community recently and has a fantastic idea for a group wont make it because they need 5 members to get a start and if they haven't been here for long enough or didn't join with a group of friends then that idea will never become a concept to atleast be given a chance to build up numbers. When I joined in 2013 there was no minimum requirement of members which meant you had some fantastic ideas flowing and being allowed a chance to build momentum. SDS, CLF, RSM, 501st etc. all mod groups that were made and built up the numbers over time. It even gets people that never played a certain RP style to join the group to give it a go simply because they read over the lore and enjoy it enough to give it a chance. I never saw myself as a bandit and then I saw a certain groups backstory and art and decided to give it a go and enjoyed every minute.
