I've been playing this a lot recently. It is very good, but there is a bug which stops zombies from spawning. Kinda ruins the game a bit, hopefully they will have it fixed asap.

If anyone needs someone to team up with let me know :)

I've been wondering when a thread like this will pop up... :P The playerbase for Day Z has grown from 15000 to 35000 in a week or so, making Arma 2 Combined Operations the 5th most sold game on Steam. I bought the game too just for this mod, haven't had the chance to play much yet. :)

It's an awesome mod no doubt, although my experience (3 short sessions so far) has always been very frustrating: spawn on beach - wander along the coast 20 minutes or so until you find a small village with absolutely no loot whatsoever - encounter a couple zombies and kill them - be killed by a random survivor who decides to attack you for no reason. :rolleyes: I'm sure once I get a few more hours in it'll be a great experience though... :P


The success of Day Z only goes to show what huge demand there is currently for an open world zombie survival MMO! :)

Surprisingly it's a whole lot easier to bring such a game into alpha when you've got a ready-made 225 km² map, guns, vehicles and animated character models to be used... :P

Arma generally has awesome open world gameplay. There's one mod that has a huge dynamic AI battle going on everywhere on the map.

They really have an awesome AI system.

YEah i do like ARMA II.. movement seesm a bit clunky but i think its suppose to be like that.

Anyway been playing @Dayz for a few weeks and its awesome. I believe the guy doing the mod is actually a dev for Arma II and III and does the mod in his spare time.
Some 3D Models I have done.

I have been playing Day Z with my gaming clan since day one, and love it so far! :P

This mod has GREAT potential to be a future AAA mod/game release...
Especially considering the developer is working on ArmA 3! Which I can't f'n wait for! :cheesy:

I'll see all u Day Z players in game! :evil:

There is one already in the works by Undead Labs (AFAIR), a company founded by one of the ArenaNET guys.

In other words, if you have been planning for it, you are bit late :D

Well thats a bummer, but actually a Stalker esque MMO might not be to bad. Might be the first MMO ive ever played for more than an hour or two. At least I hope so.

Guys, a really nice place to set up is Rog. It's a very little place on top of a hill in the south-east of the map (it's north-west of Kamishovo). There are spawns there and not many zombies (it's really small. Like 2 buildings and a crumbling wall) Good place to camp out if you want gear.

This is a perfect example of why games need to be modable. ARMA:Combined Ops was in the bottom of the barrel, then went to the best selling game on steam and to be the most played game on steam within a week.
