    Dayz mod for ARMA2

    Not sure if many people play this but I thought I'd highlight this mod as it looks awesome. My friends been playing it alot and told me about it yesterday. It's a survival horror game in the ARMA2 world and is aimed more at the 'Walking Dead' style rather than L4D2 type games. You've got to scavange, eat, sleep etc to stay alive. Also, people seem to form factions so as well as zombies, you've got other groups to watch out for. What's even better is that it's a 'true time' mod. If your character dies, that's it. He's dead forever and you have to roll a new one.

    DayZ Mod

    Realistic "Zombies" with custom animations - These once human creatures will act and behave as if they have a heighten sense of hearing and smell but less sight, on top of that they use motion captured animations such as walking and eating from your unconscious body. If you look into any built up area you'll see them walking around waiting for their next victim which dares to venture in.

    New weapons and vehicles! - Ever felt like you needed a Crossbow? Or maybe a less military like weapon? If you have then this is perfect for you as we have both of these created to high quality standards all ready for your use in this wasteland. On top of that you can even pick up the bolts fired from the Crossbow to reuse! Not only that we also have created custom vehicles which can be repaired and ridden around to show the world what you're made of!

    Custom Medical System - ArmA II's magic medic feature is a thing of the past with this medical system - If you get shot, expect to bleed and to lose blood until you're bandaged up. Lost too much blood? Then expect to fall over unconscious. If you get shot in the leg then you won't be able to walk until you get morphine so you can man up. Pain is also a factor taken into consideration so without pain killers after taking an injury you'll continue to shake. This is medical at it's best!

    Persistent Server - Fed up of spending so many hours working towards a goal or finding supplies and then the server crashes on you losing all your progress? Well with the DayZ server all stat's are saved to our external database so where ever you log off, whatever you have will be keep on you next time you come back in. This means you can spend however long you want doing what you want to do. As long as you don't die during the night!

    Tons of new objects - We haven't just added in big things like weapons, we take pride in little details so expect to find things such as water canteens, a number of canned foods, junk and car parts (Along with more!) each of which have their own models, textures and UI imagery, once again all created to that high quality you expect in a full scale modification and we're sure you won't be disappointed with it. Nothing has been rushed.

    Hunting and Survival - Eating and drinking is a core part of gameplay, you can tell if you need something by a very subtle GUI which doesn't effect the atmosphere, and if you don't fulfil those needs. You'll die. Wandering animals can killed and gutted (with the right tools) to gain access to their meat which can be eaten so you live longer but also to gain blood. For once these animals actually have a use.

    Heavy Optimisation - The DayZ server has been designed to give the best play possible. Custom coding and edits have created a smooth running world which can easily have thousands of zombies spawned at once!

    And Much More! - The only way to find out - is to survive!

    Requirements:

    ArmA II: CO
    DayZ Mod Files (Available on the downloads page)
    Balls

    Interestingly enough I've been harvesting everything I can about this mod. It was brought to my attention after someone I follow on YouTube had a "First Impressions" video in their related vids section.

    I own ARMA2 but not Arrowhead. Everywhere refers to the Combined Ops pack, I'm assuming that I can purchase Arrowhead and be a happy modder.

    I was considering getting Arrowhead on pay day to try this mod out. The servers are rammed almost 100% of the time due to the popularity of it.

    EDIT: Just noticed existing thread: Day Z

    Was that the SideSwipe's video called 'First Impressions'? 20 mins long? If so, I saw that one last night. It does look really good! I'm in the same boat though, got ARMA2 but not OA. Thinking of having a wander into GAME on lunch to see if they sell it. Failing that, may purchase online and download. I love zombie games and this one looks cracking. Something a bit different compared to others!


    I think the Combined Op's pack contain HD character models and if you have it, the mod will use the HD models. According to that first impression video, he did say you don;t need it though unless you want some HD models in the mod.
