  1. I don’t have to see to even imagine it. I remember when those guys made the base on the one island and just plopped down random buildings that made absolutely fuck all sense being there. Apartment buildings and other ridiculous things on an island that only had like two log cabins. If we are going to do custom bases can we at least use the mod template where it has to be realistic? The bases in mod looked like survivor bases. Not even a government entity could build these new types of structures.

    can't wait to hit a wall for 10 minute with an axe, so much character development

    like i wouldn't mind it if people were there to rp it out, but when you just pull up to it and see the well walled off is just like cmon bro

    Yeah I can see that being frustrating, especially if they start doing it at every well, but if this were done in say Kab, I wouldn’t have an issue with it as there are three other wells in a 1 kilometer radius or so. Still, some people taxing for water rights or holding up people for avoiding their well would be pretty sweet. 


  3. The cat ears are just a symptom of a bigger problem. I haven’t even been around for a bit but the videos I am watching that are of recent roleplay and also the memes I have seen disappoint me greatly. I mean pornos and fan fictions are funny but not what I want in my roleplay. I expect this type of stuff on non-whitelisted servers. It seems that the place has slowly gone from serious RP to Altis Life levels. It’s not something I have ever wanted to see personally and disappoints me. I don’t exactly look forward to returning if this is what I have to expect. 🤨


  4. Just to add on my comment, I would recommend some people to watch “The Book of Eli” and pay attention to the raiders and other baddies in the movie. That is something I think a lot of people want to see when they come to DayZRP. Checkpoints and highway robbery is a cornerstone of bandit RP but can get old, the other things in the movie are pretty awesome and I would love to see more of what’s in that movie in RP.

    This looks familiar, near exact to be honest with exception of graphics and "M.C.' The goals, hierarchy, and partially the lore direct to it being the same M.C.  Could've had the common courtesy to at least consult with myself on bringing it back.

    I can understand being upset, but at the end of the day there really isn’t a reason to be, we are all here just to have fun.The group thread looks nice and pays homage to the previous one. I decided to bring back a group called aegis at one point which Gary Cash was a part of.

    It didn’t pan out the way I wanted but Gary ended up being inspired by it and eventually made a group with the same goals just under a different name, in some aspects it was the same in name. Gary has went on to make that group very successful and it has affected a lot of people’s RP in a positive way. 


  6. I see complaining when there should be people adapting to this situation and putting some thought into why it was done. Out of all the bandit groups I’ve seen over the years I have NEVER met one that did one simple thing that would provide some great RP. Claiming water sources and putting up security around them. You could literally block resources and FORCE people to pay you for water rights. This is an excellent avenue of roleplay that no one has done. Take some inspiration from this. Adapt and overcome. 


  7. My solution would be to remove ALL craftable storage that allows you to store anything. One example that would be excluded would be wood log storage as it stores logs. 

    After removing all craftable storage increase the spawns of oil barrels, tents, and the modded storage items such as the lockers. 

    For part 2 of your discussion I totally agree and actually made a post recently about it. It received overall negative feedback. Personally I feel like people just want everything handed to them, they don’t want to have to search for an ultra rare tool to be able to break into a base. They just want to be able to break it down in five minutes with a simple hand tool and be done with it.

    I mean considering most of the bandits on the server generally ARE also the gear hoarders, it's kinda hard to keep it in check.

    Just a thought.

    As for OP's question: I agree with you. The poor terrible excuse of "It's the apocalypse, deal with it." is the dumbest logic I see around. It's a ROLEPLAY server, regardless if it's an "apocalypse" if you want to play it that way, I would just dome you before interacting with you and take your shit that way.

    The whole point of a roleplay server is to (You guessed it) roleplay. Yet when you want to have bandits hold people up, at least give them some flavor. Hearing the whole "Shut up or you'll be shot" is just a sore excuse to imply "I can't roleplay, I'm a PvPer on a server with rules and if I can loophole around said rules to get more stuff for my friends and I, nobody can stop me." and that's the type of mentality that you might happen to find from your holdups.

    While I haven't played in 2 months, that was the general consensus and RP I often experienced or witnessed while I was active.

    The bandits are the gear hoarders? Come on, that’s kind of laughable. Don’t get me wrong there’s a lot wrong with hostile RP. But at least don’t blame them for something they hardly ever do. In my experience the campfire rpers that just sit in their bases are the hoarders. Stacking up thousands upon thousands of rounds of 5.56 and filling their tents full of rifles. The bandits just usually carry what they need on them and then rob if they don’t have what they need. 


  9. @Combine I agree with your solution. I would go on to say that any government group should be a lore group. They should have special kits that are activated in the item store that spawns in an outfit + weapon for them. It could be activated once a day perhaps. Only allow people that are trustworthy and vetted community members in those groups. Otherwise there is absolutely no reason for said groups to exist. 
     

    @StagsviewRB yeah you have tools. But you came back rather recently did you not? For a long time it was just Major and he had to jump through hoops and beg just to be approved for a global message for a server event THEN he had to find a GM that was active or online, most of the time they were too busy to be bothered with that sort of “minor” thing. You were also an admin for quite a long time which gives reason as to why you would be granted tools. I believe you are trustworthy and deserve your tools, but I also believe other LMs fall under the same category. Major did a lot in terms of lore stuff, and he just wanted to write lore and do fun events but half of that he wasn’t allowed to do or there was so much bureaucratic bull crap it wasn’t worth it.

    In the end it all boils down to trust. If you can’t trust them with admin tools why trust them with a staff position? I understand wanting to limit abuse and corruption. Choose members you can trust and put them in the position. If they abuse their tools punish them based on the severity. If they’re spawning in gear for their friends removal of their staff rank and possibly from the community and leave it at that.

    Personally reckon @StagsviewRBcould do a great job writing lore, that pushes things forward in time. 

    Something pointed out by another LM however still holds a good point. No one cares unless they physically see change. You can write all you want but unless people start seeing overgrown areas, abandoned infrastructure, and military presence no one cares. For example. The lore says the CDF has the power to bomb whoever the fuck they want and the resources to assassinate prominent group leaders but no one cares because they don’t see helicopters or tanks. Just like drugs, for the most part no one cares unless they see a physical item in game to represent it. 

    No one appreciates the lore except the hardcore people who, lets be honest, are a minority.

    A don't even know what to respond to this... What? 

    So what you are saying is we FORCE all hostileRP'ers to be campfireRP'ers and all campfireRP'ers into hostileRP'ers. how would this benefit the community at all? 

    I think she just is saying that people should stop re-opening groups that have been brought back 6 times. The typical cycle use to be open a unique group, the life cycle use to last 6-8 months, it would close and a new one would open up with a completely different theme.

    Yes exactly, this was my critique of Deer Isle as well. It's still in Chernarus so there is no point in playing on it

    That’s exactly why I didn’t play it when I had a computer. I can’t be bothered to play a completely different map on a sep hive if there is no difference between it and chernarus. Sure the map layout is different but because of this being an RP server it serves no point in playing it if I’m just going to run into the same Nationalists slavs.

    Going into the future could be very interesting and a good change of pace. The fact is that if we do 2019 on Livonia As well, it will litearlly just be Chernarus 2.0 but with a different map. Same nationalist groups (a little different lore) Same Russian groups. Same American tourists etc. 

    This is why I said make deer isle the actual way the author meant it as and not some territory of CommieFuckistan. If it was actually set in the US we could have had way different groups, instead we got the same recycled stuff

    Sure, we could do it. Don't know what kind of state Livonia is. If it's all overgrown then it will make sense that it hasn't been just barely 3 years from the outbreak like current lore suggests. I would love a timejump perhaps 5-10 years into the future, especially considering the state of cars etc on Chernarus already.

    I'll talk with LMs and see what we can do.

    If we are going to do a time jump I hope we are considering doing some heavy changes to the map itself, overgrown areas, abandoned bases, etc  Stags has a cool idea with the whole 50 year thing. That would be fun to see. Livonia is the best option for this as everything on that map is already overgrown and abandoned looking.

    I just wish night time was a bit more like it was in 2016, where the moon actually worked and it wasn't completely black. 
    Also side note, Apollo just wanted to see how the community felt about something, yet some people are quick to pull the "Learn to not just initiate or firefight for one hour". Actually mad annoying, especially since the Jackals don't PVP. 

    Anyways, overall, i would just like to see the night time being a bit more realistic with the moon actually giving light sometimes. 

    I wasn’t really targeting anyone or any group in particular just making a statement. I personally don’t even know anyone in that group and had no idea the people in the thread were in said group until you brought it up. The thread was posted so the community could give their opinion, as a member of the community I gave mine. I could have perhaps used better language such as “adapt to your situation”. I see some in the thread are saying to keep your opinion to yourself, if that’s the case what is the purpose in the thread? Even with that being said do we want opinions or not? Bottom line is don’t take everything so personally, it’s a community centered around an online video game.

    damn dude calm down 

    I only wanted to see if the community felt the same way i did, I just feel like the fact that Dayz's night is so dark its so difficult to see mans had to squint to see. 

    No one is mad here, I was just making a point. Idk why everything has to be rustled jimmies these days. I was one of the people who wanted more night time as it’s more immersive having a working day night cycle, lots of people wanted it. 


  16. How about no. It’s a survival game. Night time is suppose to give people some time to RP the more survival things that aren’t screaming and shooting. Learn to not just initiate or firefight for one hour or so and have some relaxation around a fire  I find combining both play styles is the most fun tbh. Just get a flashlight or night vision if you feel like you have to travel at night. I get that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but as a community we should try to have a little bit of everything for everyone. Not just having a majority of one thing. Diversify. 


  17. Eh. Probably. We did this years ago but i think it had to be done manually. Once S1 filled Roland would open S2. Not sure if it’s possible to script or something. I don’t know how all that works. The problem with that is people still continue to spam S1 but use S2 to loot while others are queuing S1.
