    Hey guys, I was wondering who I need to ask in order to use the files in overwatch mainly the weapons and vehicles, I'm creating a new mod overoripoch or OOP for short (overwatch, origins and epoch) do I need to ask each individual mod owner? Or is permission from the overwatch team enough?

    Just want to make sure I do it right

    just include @DayzOverwatch in your launch parameters and you'll have all the vehicles/weapons

    I've had a OverPoch Origins server up for a few weeks now so you don't need permissions

    yes but my version will be a single mod not 3 @xxx in the start up pararmeters, it will be a completey new standalone mod @DayzOOP, it also has all of my repack features and will include more than just the overwatch and origins stuff such as new vehicles and weapons, also im intergrating the Orginis building system with epoch and basebuilding,
    to much stuff to list it all

    so far i have managed to combine epoch and overwatch into a single @Dayz mod, it has all the overwatch vehicles and weapons in it available at traders and lootable as well.

    Yea I suppose, I am interested in your concept and if you need a community to test it out I have players willing to try it out and test.

    You need permission from the Origins team, the Epoch Team and the Overwatch Team. Otherwise you would break the licenses. You also need the permission from every Addon Dev that you want to include. But i wont set my hopes on this, the origins dev are assholes when it comes to sharing.

    ok so im going to contact the epoch team and the overwatch team and since there is no origins team any more im trying to contact the indivual origins devs but yes as far as im aware i can use the code from the mods just not the models with consent (correct me if im wrong) i would not use anything with permission and even if legally im allowed to if they said no i would not.

    Yes, any thing created for arma and used in arma are free game due to the liscencing that they agreed to , thus infistar techinically cant say to not reuse it.
