Just wanted to play some DayZ again and boy what has become of this mod... literally every single server out there seems to run a different mod/version, the vast majority private hives with further special "features" and whatnot... kinda sad, actually. Just wanted to drop in again and maybe play for an hour or two but I can't even connect to a server since everything seems passworded now or requiring to be whitelisted and...

Were playing on a server thats a private hive but running vanilla DayZ. So far its been fairly stable and has a good admin not to mention pretty regular players that seem like good people. I'm not sure if you remember where we used to keep our campsite but its the same area as before (will PM camp/server info).


I've got a bad feeling about this.....

Can you PM me the server name details and camp site please.

I like to play on vanilla Dayz when I have things to think about... running 7km in a game in third person really helps you to switch off and think!

What ever happened to the official hives?

Well the main hive was a data collection center for the mods performance and since its going stand alone now the main hives have gone wild and now randomly switch maps, mods, and 3 different versions of hello kitty...............when you get in at all.....

I dropped out at the 1st of the year to focus on my toys and i am waiting for a stable stand alone to check it out again, best of luck in your server searches :

and for the prize of 1 can of beans, whats this location ?

Yeah Mars I haven't messed with the public hives for some time (every now and then I join to check out my gucci'd character). I've had some success with fairly stable private hives and the one were playing on now is pretty good with a decent admin. Now matter how good the server is you still get the random hacker attack but a private hive with a good admin will roll the server back when the server gets attacked so you minimize the losses. I'm really eager to get my hands on the standalone since I think that will restore the SimHQ group to regular playing status. But if you ever get the urge Mars send me a PM and I'll send the details to the server were on right now (running vanilla DayZ and has decent players). We've established the usual camp in the usual spot.....

LOL !!

Yes that was quite a night, i was on another server getting another chopper fixed but was on comms when it all went down, well when you all went down :}
I knew it would have been a regular to know how that flight went, i remember having to switch servers and grab a car and play combat taxi that night.

cant remember anyone else, apologies?

Would be good to team up with you guys for standalone, should be able to dominate server (more than we do already) with 13 heads?

I think Moose posted the video of the actual crash on the forum here. It's probably a few pages back by now.

I'll have to try hooking up with you guys on Origins over the weekend or some such. I have a better ISP now and shouldn't have the connection issues I was having before. I do miss playing with the group.

Here is the link to the chopper madness/crash thread for any interested.

So much fun were all missing out on. I've been playing on a whitelisted private hive for the last few days with some buddies I met on the server from my previous posts. So far its been good, definitely a PVP server but they run a custom version of the map with some new areas to explore (implemented very well). About three helis spawn on a regular basis and lots of vehicles to cut down on running. If you guys are interested let me know, best news is not one hacking event yet and the admins here are extremely active in dealing out justice if a hacking event takes place. They also ban asshats that talk in side chat! Could be a fun place for our group, any case let me know if you guys are interested.

Those were good times in a video game; I remember the first time running up to the original camp location back on either US9 or US10 and having my oldest son playing with us as well. About the only thing I miss from then is the group of guys that we had working together at all hours of the day and night.

This is the only game that has formed nostalgia for me, my first time on here it was pitch black and scary, then the next morning our camp got raided and I had nothing but an m24 and 3 mags, ended up killing the whole squad who raided us, then got lost near DC and died of thirst!

Hi Vash, and fellow survivors! They have been hanging out at Origins BMRF.ME#1 lately. Just fire up DayZCommander and use the "Add a friend" to find them the easiest.

I haven't been on for quite a while. 2 months ago my ladder broke at work, (Directv Installer) fell about 10 feet fracturing L1, L2, and right hip socket... so don't spend as much time at the computer that I used to.

Sure miss you guys! bottles

Wow fals, hope your healing up !


Vash I am enjoying the epoch mod, its a blend of minecraft and dayz with much fewer violent 12 year olds and no script kiddies in 2 months of gameplay.
Look for:

musty.us

urban decay

Both of those servers have bandit/hero AI and they play very well with good fps , they are the 2 I am working atm.

Ok the epoch adventures continue and I had some time last weekend.

Lots of versions with multiple add-ons both AI and with buildings and towns. The most interesting servers allow PVP but some are pure PVE, ie no player shooting.
The ones that are pure looting and no PVP have of course had to add elements to give the players goals and make the server feel, well fun :}

Friendly and bandit AI have been added with mixed results and one of the cool ones were working bus lines running routes and taking players for rides, very cool. This was on the epochmile





They are having some trouble with the turnarounds :}

I have spent a few days on and off working on the musty.us server and have a safe placed with a couple of locked vehicles, the safe locks and holds a full ural load of gear and its a bit like old times :



new build version due out soon with some much needed changes and also buildings that can house and lockup a car, cool stuff.

This brings back memories... Didn't turn out so well for me lol but good memories nonetheless.

I recently tried out A2 Dayz again but they have ruined it with proper "bases" instead of tents, that are all but impregnable to a loner like myself.

Plus the gfx from having played thousands of hours of A3 wasteland chernarus.......

Yeah it is quite tempting to play except I am on Linux and too many bad memories (my own behaviour was abysmal) now I am in my thirties and "grown up" I look back and still feel ashamed.

IF YOU READ THIS the people I played with...I apologise sincerely and there's no reason, no ulterior motive... SQ1 I really apologize to you friend.

Geez many. many moons ago when I played with you guys. My oldest son is now 23 and we spend a long time with the group of guys from the old Survival Ops Hard Core DayZ server. That ended up turning into a milsim group there and then moved onto Spearhead Gaming as a group. They have tried resurrecting the old DayZ, Exile and milsim groups; last of which died out about 2-3 years ago and they have tried bringing it back a couple of times but nothing lasts anymore. I think Arma 3 is almost dead simply because of the stagnant development and such.

Anyway those were and always will be fond memories.
