    My servers are more about having a good time playing the game. They are not meant to be taken serious. I have had MANY emails thanking me for giving them the chance to "have fun" without spending hours to do it. On my servers you can do in hours what takes you days / weeks on other servers (vanilla) and honestly anyone who is devoting 90% of their life to playing is not going to be much fun to be around when they die in-game. I realize that my servers are not what dayz was meant to be... but saying it degrades the game in anyway is ridiculous. It simply gives everyone the option to play for fun or play for serious somewhere else. I'm not sure why anyone feels the need to divide the two but that is the only difference. I do enjoy playing on a vanilla server when I have the time. But i will always enjoy the fun over the hours spent in-game.

    That is why i will not be renting from a gsp. I enjoy my freedoms and a lot of people in my community do also. Now that I have ranted long enough. Do I think that what you are doing is wrong? No. I think you should also have the freedom to do what you want with your mod. All i said was "I was looking forward to it" sounded great. However now that i know the idea behind it and the need to keep it "dayz" i understand. But i really do think the dayz community needs to back off from the idea that one servers play style ruins it for everyone else... that's just silly and simply not true.

    We would all be left tasteless if everything tastes same.

    Machine, there are multiple play styles and not any one is wrong. Players enjoy what they enjoy and there will always be a server out there to fill that need. Again, like I said, this is only my opinion, in the end its up to you to decide what works best for you and your players. When it goes totally open, I will have no control or say in how it is utilized. Also, I understand that many have dedicated servers (like myself) and do not need a GSP host to handle the game servers for them. A lot of thought and discussion has been going back and forth between the other devs and I regarding this aspect. This is the thing that most of us are hanging up on.

    From what i have seen about your mod it seems to be really nice. there is only one small thing i'd like to ask you :)
    Even if you think that private hives degrade the game, please allow them when you release public files. There are often small communities that run their own hives with their own flavoured mods. Without those small communities DayZ would not be what it is today. And often the admins there also develop some nice features and post them in this forum.

    Its a high possibility and we have not ruled it out as of yet, I am really on the fence about this aspect.

    okies now for my 2 cents... been running this mod for about the last month. this is what I get from my players on my server.....
    mods/scripts come from players/devs/admins of the such every one was a player and hopefully still is. so the mods come from the players
    not the admins per-say havent you ever...... I wish that I could self blood/ I wish I could tow this car/ I wish I could "Fill in the blank"

    A lot of admins
    thats where mods come from... the DAYZ guy mod once said "It be so cool if the ai into Zombies"
    Did arma turn to crap? no just made a different version of it.

    Mods are a bunch of ideas that people have come up with.

    Have your users come and play on the official test server or watch this thread http://www.dayzunleashed.com/forums/announcements.8/ We post change logs there for the client and there is a link to the dev client in there to test out the new changes to the mod.
