    If you're all on the same deathmatch server, isn't that just bots vs bots? Doesn't make the scores very impressive imo

    Hi community members! So I said to myself: "let me post this nice screenshot": But then I thought - "let's maybe just edit it a tiny-tiny bit" :

    Nadbor Regional Broadcast frequency (102.5) LDF Public Frequency (103.2) As the War against the Russian Military and our own people being infected and rampaging Livonian land, Livonia has fallen to a state of ruin, last known communication with the Queen was around the same time as Operation “Terra Mariana” slowly ended without any known outcome. Far beyond the capital’s walls,the rolling hills of Nadbor region slowly recovered from the scars of conflict, as nature has reclaimed its place, the region's wildlife sprung back to their natural homes and silence has filled it’s mountains and valleys. Around the year of 2019, the land has seen an influx of refugees who tried to find shelter from the elements and flee the infected, only to discover that the Nadbor region was also populated by the same disease and walking corpses in the streets. Along with refugees also came violent bandits, bands of heroes and recently… surviving Livonian Defense Force soldiers. In the capital of Andrejzow, many believed the city had fallen to anarchy, but little did bandits in the region know that the Parliament was a very much a working structure. Underneath the Parliament, an old Soviet Nuclear bunker sheltered the Parliaments officials and the Monarch itself along with remnants of LDF command . A year after the bombs fell, and most of the harmful radiation was gone from the northern Livonian border, the scoured LDF soldiers and the remaining first responders, civilians patiently waited for any higher commanding entity to resurface and kick start the rebuilding process. And their wish came true. Underneath the Parliament, the Queen issued a defense protocol, which sent out scouts and messengers throughout the land in order to recall any citizens in defense of the Queen, and soon after the first radio chatter in years came back to life.The remnants of Livonian Defense Force and first responders soon swept through the capitals streets and wiped out any remaining criminals, bandits and anarchists along with any Russian dirt laying in ruin. Their first push was to clear out the neighboring buildings around the Parliament building, where state criminals made bases inside the apartments, some even possessing Russian documents which were used to seek out key locations where the suspected platoons were hidden. Next strike was along the facilities and inactive factories on the south of the city where the city’s power plant and water pumps were located, during their investigation they found Russian insurgents holding control over the facilities, which were dealt accordingly and quickly, along with them were prisoners, majority engineers, with their help, they managed to re-establish connection to power but only remotely, focused on the center of the city where their command center was located, this caught wind of the anarchists who noticed the power returning, aiming to take advantage and sabotage power lines, but were unable to complete their operation after being shut down by LDF patrols along the city blocks. More and more, the Defense Force found it hard to stop bandits and Russian forces from sabotaging the power lines, a new plan came to action as the sewer tunnels came to use, moving the cables under the city, unfortunate to the Russian forces, they were unaware of the cities underground built after the Livonian independence in 1991. The mission was a success as both water and power was established in secret. Equipped with electricity, they established spotlights to rid any attempts on attacking the Parliament by night, and with the success in reclaiming the construction sites, the forces in the city built defense walls around the central part of the city as the infected were also starting to cause problems. A small number of soldiers perished during these operations, but their sacrifice were the building blocks to their resistance and strength. With power back, the Radio towers atop of the Parliament building also returned to full functionality, thus beginning their attempt to contact anyone on secure channels. The Parliament was reinforced and became the central point for both her majesty’s reign and the remnants of Livonian Government’s control in the matter of days. The neighboring streets were blocked off to house the people and create a safe haven for them. Through their sweeping of radio channels, they came across a broadcast from the northern parts, more specifically the Nadbor region. The region is known to be mostly abandoned but with the recent radio broadcast it was proven that it is not as abandoned as the parliament command has thought. Three remnants of the Livonian Defense Force were in the region helping out the local Livonian survivors, with a dream of rebuilding the nation to its former glory. In a few days, rumors of the Capital breathing life once more caught the attention of Russian insurgents still in the area and other bandits looking for supplies and an easy grab for weapons. Little did they know that the remnants of the government fought relentlessly and were well equipped to defend, while also sheltering any civilians answering the Monarchy’s call of hope. It took a few months to strike back the sieges brought by the two forces, but standing strong, they never gave up and successfully defended the heart of Andrejzow Only a remote number of NATO soldiers were left behind when the bombs fell and took shelter with the Government members to provide protection and aid in case any further assaults were to arrive, unfortunately… all NATO frequencies were dead and nothing was coming in or out due to damages to the radio towers caused the radiation, they were on their own and with their strength reborn and with hope sparking flames in their hearts, the Livonian people marched on out of the Capital, purging infected and burning them in mass piles. Clean streets have returned to Andrejzow along with the Government that helped and sheltered the common folk. But now a new question has risen, what about the rest of the region? This sparked a new operation, a rebuilding of the lost lands. The Queen issued a command over to be sent to Nadbor region, along with a platoon to follow north and unite with the existing forces in Nadbor. They will become the Capital’s reach north, while the rest focus on the more devastated regions east of Andrejzow. “Żelazny Jeleń” is their name, translates to “Iron Stag” to symbolize their iron will in rebuilding the lands of Livonia. The soldiers from Nadbor region have finally rallied up with the platoon sent from Andrejzow. They have acquainted themselves with one another and received 4 envelopes with 1,2,3 and 4 marked on them. The men opened the three envelopes carefully reading their objectives set by the queen herself, the men reached to open the forth envelope but it was marked to be opened when the three other objectives are completed or are to fail. And so the men sent from the capital together with men who remained in the region went forth to complete the phases set by the queen herself. - Sync and document the current situation in Nadbor region’s groups and meet with their leaders - DAY 993 (2/12 Groups Met) - Inquire with survivors and members of groups within the region about past events that happened- DAY 995 (Completed!) - Supply and find a good location to establish a temporary camp - DAY 1005 (Searching...) - Gather supplies and uniforms for the Platoon from LDF or NATO Military bases in Nadbor region - DAY 1010 - Create an automatic broadcast transmission within Nadbor region for any surviving LDF or civilians - DAY 1013 (2/4 Towers Configured) - Build temporary establishments through major cities in hopes of finding any Livonian forces (0/3 Major cities) - DAY 1020 - Document at least 20 survivors 5/20 - DAY 1023 - Plant posters throughout smaller towns frequently traveled by survivors informing them about LDF presence in the area - DAY 1027 (3/10 Towns) - Inspect the general infrastructure of Nadbor region, power lines, roads, buildings still standing - DAY 1031 (55% / 100%) - Fix the existing radio towers in order to have direct contact with the Capital- DAY 1036 (2/4 Repaired) - Find a possible location to house Livonian citizens - DAY 1040 - Scout and gather building supplies from construction sites scattered throughout the Nadbor region - DAY 1045 (0/3) - Find a suitable location and begin constructing a settlement for Civilians and LDF Members - DAY 1050 - Attempt to repair the wind towers found east of Nadbor region - DAY 1056 - Establish a new currency form through bullets or euro bills - DAY 1060 - Democratically elect a representative of the people of Nadbor region - DAY 1064 - Attempt to rebuild the power grid and bring back electricity within the Nadbor region - DAY 1070 - Survey the inactive factories north of Nadbor region and prepare them for exportation back to Andrejzow- DAY 1075 - Gather supplies from Sila factory to supply the capital with any available weapons and ammo - DAY 1081 - Find a method to transport the supplies south towards the capital - DAY 1088 - Await further instructions from Andrejzow - DAY 1095 - Perform purging runs against the infected plaguing Livonia’s soil - - Patrol the Nadbor region for any active Russian Federation military personnel - - Gather all remaining LDF units in Nabdor region and sway them to our cause - - Help Livonian citizens and try to avoid any conflicts when possible - @Highlander_V @Commander @Nonplayer @Greener161 @FatalShot @cheeks @ThePanda @Jonaaaaaas @Stiver @Combine @Dylanamo Team One - (EU) Antoni Nuwak Juri Sobecki Dawid Wolanczyk Szymon Lewandowski Tomasz Syzmanski Pawel Gawron Team Two - (US) Hugo Kaminski Aleksander Dabrowski Bartek Krzys Jaroslaw Kazimierz *Any active and identified Russian Fed.

    Chapter 1: Humble Beginnings Chapter 2: Paradise Lost Chapter 3: Awakened to harsh reality After the fall of Green Mountain, we decided to keep on going. Becoming nomadic seemed like the right way to continue our journey. Answer radio calls for any assistance we could offer. The affiliation to whom they belonged too didn't interest us. But our kindness was being used against us. Hostages & punching bags, anything they can use for fun. We became exhausted. The group separated, members traveled far and wide. Noticing that they were missing fragments. Pieces that were comfort. As time passed we noticed, a family is someone you trust, the world may have ended, but our humanity will always be in question. We started finding each other once again. Sending radio messages. Regathering, uprising. We are the remnants of Green Mountain Charity. Seeing our home abandoned, some of our group members felt Forgotten Mountain was the name we carry now. We are here to trade, help, donate and contribute.

    We have removed suggestion channels in Discord as it was difficult to get communitys opinion on suggestions flying by in chat and no easy way to vote or comment on them. Here are new guidelines for suggestions: All kinds of suggestions should be posted in this forum, this includes suggestions about the community, rules, our DayZRP mod, new mods to be added to the server and any other issues. All threads MUST include an unbiased poll with a short and precise answers, ideally a "Yes" and a "No". Polls that are deemed biased by for example having an option "Yes" which is the suggested change by poll creator and a "No - explain why" which suggests requiring to explain negative votes will be closed or edited. All suggestions should be reasonable and you should have done some research beforehand about if the suggested thing is viable or even possible. We will be locking suggestions that include things which go against core values of DayZRP, features that are impossible to be added to the game, mods that are incompatible or unfinished, etc. Provide as much information as necessary as well as explanation why the thing you want added would be good for DayZRP. We won't be requiring using a template to allow freedom of expression, but add as much information and pictures as possible and avoid one liners.

    Formed by several like minded individuals, who, at the onset of global destabilisation caused at the hands of the undead hordes, the group saw a chance to both further the prospects of humanity and ingratiate themselves with whoever might emerge at the top of the inevitable power vacuum that would form given the current deficit of an established government. To this end, a vicious sweep of Europe was enacted, with museums pertaining to military history being their main target, firearms and other militaria, deactivated or otherwise, from various points in recent history were collected, with special interest being showed to many of the last ditch firearms produced by the third reich in its death throes, moving rapidly west, sacking the historical institutions of many European countries as they went, taking advantage of the ensuing chaos caused by the collapse of the world around them. Eventually the group arrived in Livonia, and found their pillaging could continue no further, as the Belarussian government had mustered the most resistance to the undead threat, and had taken every precaution to close their borders, deciding to push further east, the group had no choice but to secure passage off-road, a precarious endeavour given the sheer weight of stolen arms they possessed. Bribing a local woodsman, they were assured that passage further eastward could be had by means of an abandoned logging trail through the hills, left unguarded since the days of the USSR given the freedom of movement allowed to its member states. Setting off on the road, the convoy made solid, albeit painfully slow progress due to the steep nature of the road, several days into the journey, they were plagued by the extremely violent storms that frequent the country, their progress ceasing all together now as the very ground beneath them sought to see them undone. Several more days passed, with frantic attempts to un-ditch the convoy being made by every man present, though to no avail, eventually the futility of their actions was realised, the decision was made to bury their loot, the process was even more arduous than before, but eventually they buried what trailers they could, and sought to fortify the ones they could not. Now trapped in Livonia, with the weight of their bounty cast around their ankles like a leaden ball, the group has no choice but to prematurely enact the next portion of their plan, hoping to create a hub for the cheap manufacture of crude firearms. At first hesitant of their new surroundings, the group took a policy of isolationism, their interactions with the survivors that were now their neighbours being limited to trade, both of supplies and information relating to the local area, being an eccentric bunch to begin with, their continued self segregation served to paint a peculiar image of them, first earning their moniker of "Brass", as those most involved with them became accustomed to their incessant pining for ammunition in any form. Whether in an attempt to be rid of them, or through a genuine interest in seeing them prosper, the local populace notified the group that far to the south of the country sat an abandoned munitions plant. The fabled SILA arms plant rivalled the Brno plant in Czechoslovakia in its heyday, and served as a bastion of Livonian pride until its gradual fall into disrepair and eventual abandonment. Fully aware that the plant would have been largely stripped clean of useful machinery, an emphasis was put onto finding and assessing the possibility of making the place liveable, even workable once again. Until being able to do so, the group has focused their efforts onto the accrual of arms and armour of any sort, with the goal of distributing the most desirable luxury in the country at a premium they can decide, to this end, they have also made considerable efforts to contact those they feel trustworthy enough to help further their cause.

    We thank you for alternative options, i honestly really do...But to be utterly honest? From having the ability to directly effect the server the last half a year with events...I know what works server wise..I cant rely on volunteers...they arent consistant....I cant rely on staff...they have their own duties. Its why when having tools we made the most of every little scrap we had. Working with every noot and cranny. Look what we could do with 1 person with tools...map and godmode with the serial killer event series? We got nearly the entire server on Red Alert...

    Since bladed weapons are exclusively used for PvE elements of the game and since said bladed weapons seem to be made out of bronze and last for around eight interactions. I would like to suggest an addition to our crafting recipe's. In the form of a craftable sharpening stone. So. Instead of just stat buffing melee weps like has been suggested before. I think this would be a much more immersive way of alleviating the, current, unrealistic situation of steel alloy melting due to the titanium that is a zombies head or crumbling due to the beskar that is small sticks. Furthermore. In terms of crafting, i would suggest hooking into the pre-existing recipe of a stone knife adding the extra option of "Sharpening Stone" This would also add to the survival aspect of the game, using and understanding your environment to make your life easier. IE where to find stones and where to find the right terrain to turn said stone into a sharpening stone. Its a little thing but little things add up when it comes to immersion. Finally. As far as balance is concerned, I personally can not think of anything that would make this mechanic broken. However i will admit i have not toiled over this idea for more than a day or so. I could easily of overlooked something that may seem obvious to others, if anyone thinks of anything that makes this broken, do share. (Also Devs, i'm assuming tinkering with crafting recipe's is something you as a team are capable of, if not then disregard this suggestion as it would then be irrelevant)

    We've got cowboy hats and denim jackets, but we don't have any cowboy boots. I think it would be really cool to see black and brown variants, with a choice between dull and shiny in the color options specifically. Furthermore, I think it would be cool to see the different types of boots in-game as well. For example, square toe, rounded toe, and pointed toe.

    I 100% agree that groups should stop coming back so many times. It's just big . I'd much rather have people use some creativity and start something new. Unfortunately I don't think moderating it will do much, people are just gonna start the exact same thing under a new name.

    Hello lads, just a bit of feedback from John focking Joyce. I want to thank you lads for the amazing RP I got today. From the moment you guys captured me just outside the hospital to the very end where we had to build your walls. All of it was fun and you guys made sure we didn't get bored. It has been a fucking long time since I got captured but im happy it happened. Thank you! A tip: Some people will maybe not enjoy the really long period of time you guys held us. Maybe make it a bit shorter next time. (I enjoyed it though )

    In the words of the famous English playwright, William Shakespeare, fucketh no. But why profane so Aristocrat? I hear you cry. Chernarus is so 2012 and no one plays on it. Apologies mysterious, otherworldly voice but I’m afraid it is there that I must burst thyne proverbial bubble. Aside from those pesky whitenames, three dedicated groups currently make their home on the server: Ladbroke Grove, Redwood Radio and my own dashing Cavaliers; along with a large host of lesser-known dynamics. Also, the 5.0.3 and Poitus Cras seem to pop in frequently to drink blood and eat babies or something. Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to take a map behind the barn and shoot it. However, that was Deer Isle, there we had no choice but here, we’re actively encouraging the destruction of years of interwoven storylines on what seems to be little more than an ill-considered whim. Bad Choices With very few plausible options to travel between Europe and the Americas during an apocalypse, and the author’s staunch refusal to sail the island to the Black Sea. Some unfortunates must make the uncomfortable choice between creating a new character for Stuarts Island or buying DLC. Essentially, pay the court a fine or be prepared to forfeit your character. Forcing people to choose between money and roleplay is, as far as I'm aware, something we're supposed to be vehemently against as a community. For those willing to bite the bullet and send their due tythes to Bohemia, as I have, be prepared for another very convincing and plausible excuse as to why all abandon our abodes for yet another Eastern European country, plagued by war and nuclear hell fire. A decision that would not be made by any sane person, let alone a patriotic native. Of course, this could easily be explained away by making Chernarus an utterly inhospitable wasteland, ala Deer Isle. But once we’ve done that, there really is no going back. Sorry Roland, there's a reason you have LMs on staff. Hasty response to a complicated issue The current server split of 80/20 (80/1 since the suggestion), doesn’t exist because people desperately hate Chernarus, after all this clunky yet loveable post-soviet state has supported this community for six long years. It’s rather a consequence of its age and Livonia’s new, younger, flatter, more attractive landscape and Chernarus' recent period of Winter frigidity. I believe we should act with caution and wait for the excitement of this fling to die down before proceeding with a costly, lengthy divorce proceeding. Saying that, we must to some extent accept that this community will never neatly divide itself between the two maps. As we saw with Deer Isle and again with Livonia, people will always favour one over the other. This decision will by no means alleviate the low population issue. No doubt there’ll be a rush to try the new map within the first days of its launch; then, rather inevitably, the population will gradually decline and plateau as people lose interest or migrate back to Livonia. One server will always act as overflow for the community, no matter which pairing of maps are selected. People naturally gravitate towards the greatest concentration of roleplayers, regardless of where they’re located. That’s a big part of what makes DayZRP so successful in general. So, it’s either go back to one server, forcing everyone into the purgatory of an endless queue or come to accept that one bauble will swing lower than the other. What certainly won’t help is taking a rusty cleaver to your uneven knapsack every time a hot, new map pops up on the workshop. Chernarus is O.K. It really isn’t that bad. No seriously, it isn’t. Okay, it’s a bit rubbish but at least it’s our own refuse, something we’re familiar with. As someone who is active on the server, I can confirm that the rumours it has devolved into a Mad Maxesque, PvP slaughterhouse, where gear goblins wage eternal war on each other across the barren wastelands of South Zagoria, are mostly unfounded. Not only is it the reliable, sturdy bedrock of DayZ, with pages upon pages of lore to build upon but its lower population, abundant resources and sparse landscape have encouraged the industrious goblins to huddle closer together; fostering great, settlement-based roleplay in their sprawling hovels of mud and sadness. What’s more it has provided an ideal nursery for newly hatched whitenames to thrive and get comfortable with DayZ’s unique brand of RP without being embroiled in the constant battle royale that is Livonia. The Future of Stuarts Island Community maps are not guaranteed to be updated and improved and are very much dependent on the enthusiasm of the map maker. Indeed, by the author’s own admission, this particular project isn’t even finished yet; there’s not even an official iZurvive map available for it, a veritable death sentence for navigationally inept troglodytes like me. Now, I’m sure Kerkkoh is, as the kids would say, an absolute G and has worked exceedingly hard on this but he’s only one man at the end of the day. If he gets tired of the game or worse, decides that he’d rather not let DayZRP use his beautiful baby, then there’s not a damn thing we can do. I’m sure everyone remembers what happened to Deer Isle when we lost that custody battle. Additionally, the map is, not to be rude, well… rather titchy. Even smaller than Deer Isle by the looks of it, a map widely reviled by the community; it’s not certain how typical roleplay dynamics would adapt to such an unusual environment, if at all. Yes, forcing people into a claustrophobic cage of a map to encourage roleplay sounds like a good idea on paper but if I did that with hamsters, I'd be fined for animal cruelty. In all likelihood it will result in a cramp, chaotic jamboree of broken toes and poor bar service; culminating in a report section a mile long. Also we're still waiting for official, fully fledged lore for Livonia. How long are we going to be bumbling around waving cowboy hats and eating deep fried chicken before we get some coherent scripture for Stuart Island? The Solutions I've come to realise, as I type this long, rambling, incoherent mess of an argument, that it's far too late to change to people's minds regarding this particular decision. At the time of writing, Rolle and 61.83%* of the community seem to have already settled on the matter. However, I have conspired to create two small suggestions which may alleviate our collective suffering in the event of an 'I told you so' outcome; they are as follows: If we must embark on this perilous, one way voyage to the Pacific then I strongly encourage you to give Stuart Island a thorough probation period on a third server. Receive feedback on it before you go poking holes in Chernarus, you might find it's the only seaworthy raft you have left. Our gracious and benevolent masters of lore might deign to consider and provide a plausible, in-lore explanation as to why characters can make a onetime migration to Stuarts Island. i.e. A big, ol', sexy boat shows up, selling tickets for twinkies, the undisputed currency of post-apocalypse America. Thereby saving the destitute masses of Chernarus from being chased into the abyssal depths of the archives by the bloodthirsty, armoured bears of Livonia. Or we could just tsar bomba the whole thing and have ourselves a jolly, good lore wipe; allowing us to sweep up the irradiated ashes into one tidy dustbin. Alas, that, my dear reader, is a thread and an exceedingly long, pedantic rant for another day. *Still a larger majority than Brexit

    By now, additional positive feedback for you guys is probably a redundancy, but I want to leave some kind words nonetheless, because I think you deserve it! I got to RP with @Basko and @Comrade Politruk yesterday for the first time in a long while, and it was a really enjoyable experience alltogether! You guys have created a long lasting entity on the server, yet your RP remains fresh, immersive and entertaining. I really hope our paths cross more often in the near future thank you for the good time Redwood folks! PS: Your IC content on the forums (newspapers, broadcasts etc.) is amazing too, please bring us more of that!

    Let me just swoop in with couple links, hopefully they'll be helpful for you. Currently used lore (+ from what I know Loremasters are doing their best to write down more lore for history of Livonia): Livonia location: With your "staff is killing the server" attitude at the end I think I've just wasted time on getting the links for you, couple seconds that I'll never get back. Shame.

    People are sometimes like sheep. ''One sheep on over the dam and the rest will follow'' as the dutch would say. I get that people like to explore a new map, but the main reason people play on livonia right now is not that. People play on it because people play on it. Once some big groups moved over to Livonia, more followed. I truely believe that if some people or groups settle down in Chernarus again, that population will follow naturally. The argument of ''we dont go to Chernarus, because Chernarus is dead'' really bothers me, because a mindset like that just doesn't fix anything. It becomes a loop as soon as you use that argument, because if noone makes the first step to play on Chernarus again, then the loop continues. People follow people. There just always need to be people that initiate or start thing.

    No news so far, I'm enjoying stable servers very much and prefer that far more than some custom cars and locks that are not essential for RP. Soon maybe.

    After a few years break from RP, I was pleasantly surprised to come back to see some of the best the community has to offer in both friendly interaction, and hostile roleplay. Being led to your lover by a man over the radio who your not sure you can trust, only to have him offer you a home and hours later be your brother in arms as a man you just met gets executed next to you is a spectacular night. Definitely the convincing my community needed to.stay around for more. @Wynne and @Vandire, consider yourselves the reason we're all sticking around again and bringing more in.
