  1. Poll: Should an Arma 3 DayZ styled server be implemented?

    Hm, you clearly give a shit, seems like a nerve was hit there, never mentioned the word 'experienced' or sugar coated being around the mod days, so pipe down buddy. Anyway, are there any admins that care to share their thoughts on an ArmA 3 server?
  2. Poll: Should an Arma 3 DayZ styled server be implemented?

    DayZRP was built around ArmA II DayZ, not the other way around pal. It was not a 'change over' either, it was a side project, i suggest doing some research seeing as you've only been around since august '16 you may not have experienced the mod days. Anyways, ArmA 3 with exile as the base mod & carefully adding extra mods to add to roleplay is all it takes, what is there to lose? Nothing. The only difficult part is the map, we've tried a paid for map which caused a lot of arguments, maybe leave that until the mod is successful & less of a risk for those who may not be able to afford it on the off chance it fails. Any of you who states, 'side projects always fail', have you ever done anything in life that took you multiple attempts but you kept on trying till you got it right? Anyone who still stands by that statement has a very shallow mind & most likely never even attempted to play said 'side projects'.
  3. Poll: Should an Arma 3 DayZ styled server be implemented?

    You do realize DayZRP began & became 'famous' on ArmA II? Side projects work, DayZ SA worked as a side project for what its worth.
  4. Poll: Should an Arma 3 DayZ styled server be implemented?

    Put it this way, Compare the number of active players ingame & website in regards to the days of the mod oppose to the days of SA. Not to mention the income for the server/website. Arma 3 is the way forward with the right implementation and planning.
  5. Poll: Should an Arma 3 DayZ styled server be implemented?

    The first problem, relating to it as a side project. Make it a main project with as much focus as DayZ currently has and it will succeed. Just because a couple attempts fail that doesn't mean every attempt will. That attitude has to go. As others have said, DayZ SA was once a side project.
  6. Hello everyone. We all loved the glory days of the mod, most say we can not create that experience again due to the current community, I beg to differ. All we need is a successful & smooth mod to run on Arma 3 along with of course, an active community playing it. Desolation was a flop not the server here but the actual mod was a flop, it ran, looked and felt horrible which was the downfall here. There are other mods out there such as exile, if it were tweaked properly could give us that old feel of the mod days. So this will be the poll that decides the fate of an A3 DayZRP mod. I have spoken to Rolle and he has stated: So here goes, everyone vote either Yes or no & lets see what happens.
  7. Is DayZRP losing popularity?

    In my personal opinion it will. If staff are not hands on with the project how does it develop? The numbers in the recent A3 attempt were there, 30 at the most at the weekends, the advertisement was not, never was there staff events or staff giving updates on whats being looked at, improved etc, not including Rolle.Never were there attempts to get everyone ingame to kick it off, I mostly seen that from community members attempting to get people to jump on.So why bother playing a server where nothing changes from time to time? Anyways, thats just my opinion on the grounds of the recent A3 mod attempt. That being said, why not create a poll to see if the community are that interested before a date is given for a meeting regarding a launch?
  8. Is DayZRP losing popularity?

    I really agree with the last couple comments there. If an A3 project was more so treated as a main project apose to a side project and a lot more staff members were involved. Desolation was pretty fun but it seemed only rolle was actually giving a shit whilst other members of staff avoided desolation like the plague, well in the public view. What if we give it another crack, exile even? What if we create a public poll to decide if an A3 dayz styled server should reopen on dayzrp?
  9. Is DayZRP losing popularity?

    Could not agree with you more Tom. I get what everyone is saying that we only remember the good and not the bad but theres a hell of a lot more good about A2 & A3 than SA. 0.64 isnt going to cure the population maybe for a couple weeks at the max. The future is an A3 mod and thats firmly what i believe, all i can do is hope at some point it is a fun working reality.

    Indeed, i also tried many communities to recreate that feel, so if it returned whats stoping all those players from returning? I really could not agree more. The server was a perfect balance of unrealistic & realistic merged together. I personally joined multiple communties that attempted to recreate dayzrp arma 2 under different names and none of them gave me that feel. I am happy i got to witness how great dayzrp once was on the mod but i am also sad that i missed out on another portion of it once i had been permabanned and on my return the mod was no more. I know the idea of its return is amazing and very difficult at the same time but isnt it worth one more shot? I personally would put myself out there in giving a hand on getting it up ans running and i know a lot of old school players like yourself Voodoo, would too. I think it is something that should really be discussed about as a community as a whole and not just a couple die hard arma 2 2013/15 fans like ourselves.
  11. Is DayZRP losing popularity?

    Indeed you are 100% correct, arma 3 costs around €30 last time i checked so for some people its a risk to take if the mod fails and they have no need to play it. Arma 2 is what we all fell in love with and if the mod was truely brought back to its orignal glory i know a lot of players that would return, as you say if people got their feet wet and really made a team effort it could really work. Also making a slight change around in the website to suit both arma 2 & sa i doubt would be difficult. If all the old school players came together this could really work. The current 'new' players really do not understand what they had missed out on.

    What about an arma 2 server with the original dayzrp mod??
  13. Is DayZRP losing popularity?

    Personally, i think the return of an arma 3 dayz mod would be the life of dayzrp, provided it was as amazing snd fresh feeling like the old mod days on arma 2. Dayz SA is ridiculously boring, who else would like to see an arma 3 or even arma 2 roleplay mod on dayzrp again?

    My name is Ryan Shepherd. I was born in Ireland. My childhood revolved around violence, My father was involved in the IRA, while my mother had succumbed to domestic violence when my father came home from the boozer. I had a deep hatred for him, he used to beat me if I did not do as I was told. On my 18th birthday, my father brought me to a warehouse, as I entered there were men standing around chatting, suddenly they all turned around and stared. A few hours later I was inducted into the IRA, I running boy. I was given the jobs any fool could do, I loved the work. A few years later I had stepped up in the ranks. A became a person who mattered One evening I came home on my 30th birthday to find my mother with a deep cut on her cheek, she was weeping, 'Its okay Ryan, I'm fine'. I knew who it was, I ran to the kitchen sink where a gun was hidden in the pump housing. I stormed out of the house to the jacks inn pub, there he was sitting there...Smiling... laughing to his friends, I pointed and took a deep breath, a loud bang, everyone turned to look at me in shock. They charged after me, I ran as fast as I could. I saw a cargo ship just in the distance at the docks, god knows where it was going or even if I could board it without being seen. I had to take a chance, what else could i do, the only thought I had was about my mother, she was going to be alone but atleast she was safe from that bastard! I ran for the ship as I heard a loud beacon, I was guessing it was signaling its departure. I saw a gantry crane loading the last of its containers, I sprinted for one of the containers, I opened the doors and this blast of smell hit me straight in the face, it was fish... I hate fish. I had no choice so i shut the doors hoping someone would see it was not latched and think nothing of it and latch it shut. I hid in the back of the container and noticed something else under the fish, it was a large pallet of AK47's hidden in the fish, I decided this wasnt the best container to hide in, as I got up to leave the doors were shut closed, i felt the container being lifted, hoping it was onto the ship. All I could do not is sleep & hope, I kept an AK47 for myself, incase some thugs open the container looking for their guns and see a little paddy hiding instead, i doubt i would be given a warm welcome. I slept for what felt like a life time.. I was awoken to a large bang and the container doors opened and a man runs as he does so in terror.. I was confused.. Where am I? As i moved towards the opening of the container i hurt the thud of feet running briskly. "That container there!" I heard a squeamish voice say. Weird.. Was i still in an english speaking country? Impossible for that long of a trip. I panicked and dropped the rifle i had just picked up and put my hands in the air, what else could i do, i couldn't exactly run. Three men appeared pointing rifles at me shouting what my imagination thought to be Russian. I got on my knees and kept my hands spread in the air and screamed "dont shoot!". They approached me and threw me out of the container as if i were just a piece of meat. They begin shouting at me again, i tried to explain that I do not understand and That i speak english. After a few moments one of the men tapped the other and muttered something and the man nodded and walked away. The man returned shortly after with the man who opened the container who appeared to speak english. "Hi.." he nervously muttered. "Are you.. You bitten?" "Bitten?" I said. "By those things?" He said. "What things?" I cautiously muttered. The man shook his head as if i were crazy and the two soldiers began to become impatient and then blackness... I woke up in a barricaded shop front with a pounding headache and dry blood on my forehead. It was only then i looked to my left and saw a pile of what looked like decomposing bodies, i have never seen such a disgusting sight, i immediately thought i had fallen into some sort of slaughter house for the sick. The man that spoke english came over and sat me down and explained a bizarre story about how an infectious disease had occurred in the land of chernarus recently and was gobsmacked as to how i never heard of it. I then explained how i had come to be in the container and he said how it mustve been a shipment container of food and arms aid. He then walked me around the town i called berezino. Guiding me around and questioning me about myself. I couldnt believe this, zombies, thats bizarre it must be some sort of crazy disease that'l pass zombies it cant be? By now it was night, the man whos name i found out to be Cheznik. Cheznik directed me to a hotel which was now seemed to be the sleeping arrangements for everyone, sleeping bags and mattresses in the lobby. I obviously had to sleep on the floor in a corner, i could hear blood curdling screams in the distance that would abruptly stop, it turned my stomach. The next morning i awoke to screams and people running and gunshots. I was petrified what was happening?? A man was running by me i grabbed him and asked what was happening? He shouted in my face "infected!" and jerked himself off my grasp. I saw Cheznik in the distance directing people where to run. I ran to him. He then told me how i can no longer stay, that the camp is going to be overrun as a hoard had been attracted by the sound of a ship horn that had malfunctioned and would not turn off. He had a petrified look in his face. He told me to run inland as that was my best bet, and handed me a map from his back pocket and a handgun from his waist belt. "Run Ryan!" He shouted and pushed me. As those things were collapsing fences around the gates. I did as i was told, i am alone now.. Where do i go? Where do i find food? What do i do? Alone...
