    Howdy All,

    I'm with Vigilant Addiction; the Community and the Indie Game Studio (VAStudios).

    I'm currently looking around for an Admin Partner, or two, to assist with bringing back to life an old "External Game" that I ran some years ago on ARMA 2 DayZ Maps (FactionZ). I'm not here to promote it; I'm only looking for some guys that have the time to assist with modifying Loot Tables (foremost) and potentially add some buildings and events/scripts to specific maps. We have 30 people signed up already for the 1st Season, in which we hope more people return as they hear that we're bringing it back.

    It's being rebooted with some Story/Plot to run along with it; but we're also developing a Full Release Game (via Steam) that corresponds to the premise of the external plot/story. While we develop said game, we're allowing our Community to have some fun in this mod once again, in which they'll also become internal play-testers. It's possible that there could be a position on the Development Team for said game if the interest was there. The team starts work in 2015 using either Unreal or Unity (still TBD by the team).

    I'd love to hear from anyone that's curious in helping us pick this back up. We had a lot of user feedback wanting us to bring this back to life; and I want to try and make it come to back to life with as many potential 'features' as possible that we always envisioned it to have. I promise anyone that come in on this; that I certainly have the potential to make it worth your time.

    I personally don't have the talent to do what the full design demands; and the awesome admins that I used to work with back in the day have either moved on or are busy with various life events. (Kids/School)

    I'm a pretty humble person, so I'm not so much here to sing Amazing Grace about it; or say it's better than this or that... since it's been dead for the last year or so, haha. I couldn't tell your demeanor by that reply.

    That's why I'm hear looking to see if there's just anyone interested/available to be apart of the team; not even exclusively... as it could easily be brought to any other community or mod team out there.

    It's not really "Just Another Mod" because there's a lot of external 'on-goings' happening; which potentially makes it more than a mod. It's not just "Another Epoch Server" running for people to join. We do go a lot deeper than that, and we just use those maps as a jumping off point to run everything with. I suppose there's a reason that people came back to me and asked us to bring it back; I hadn't asked why.

    I don't even know the best way to relate it... haha, maybe... NASCAR racing? Sure it's the same left turns over and over again... but there's different conditions/race tracks/etc... that play into the full 'Season' of it? lol

    Just to explain my first comment I want trying to sound like a dick I just generally wanted to know about the mod, so whats it going to have that isn't already in dayz or epoch and im British so I don't get the nascar reference :).

    Anyway is there a list of features or plans that you have for the mod.

    Ha! Okay, thanks for clarify that Alex.

    Basically we use a normal DayZ Map right now; and we're going to 'progress' through the maps and into Epoch. So the first 'Seasons' will be tougher... not much available (Very limited Guns / No Base Building / Limited Vehicles).

    People are allowed to 'team up' with up to 4 people (to start with; that number will grow over the Seasons). Teaming Up is optional of course.

    What I need assistance with; is getting specific buildings added to these maps (We pick some hard-set base locations). Specific weapons removed and/or added from spawning. Potentially some 'hard-set' inventory storage at specific locations; and potentially some SQL/DB/Website scraping with Database Information/Server Logs. (We had it in Python some time ago)

    The bulk of the 'fun' comes from the daily events that are created (by admins) and the more Major Weekly Events; that have a strong "Choose Your Own Adventure" theme to it.

    Correct - We're starting with a completely Vanilla Map right now and will be going through various stages up to Epoch and so forth.

    Good luck with your server Alex :)
