DayZ Origins Mod Released!
http://www.overclock.net/t/1354462/dz-dayz-origins-mod-released-download-link-video

Yay, about time.

This has been in the works for some time.
This is NOT the day z stand alone that is coming out, so don't confuse it with that.
Also this has nothing to do with the warz game, I thought I would post it here for the zombie fans.
http://www.dayzorigins.com/

"Welcome to Origins, the new ARMA II mod inspired and based on modified version of DayZ. Fight to survive in the harsh apocalyptic Taviana 3.0 map, fully redesigned, making room for a wide range of new features and twisted survival elements"

"All of this set in our new Taviana 3.0 featuring over 60 new buildings with full interiors to explore. From Hospitals and Police stations to Museums and Military Camps".

It has some impressive custom made vehicles.

the 4 hour (accelerated) day/night cycle is something I hope the Day Z standalone does. The 1:1 servertime mapping in Day Z was cool, but ultimately it just meant people switched servers to they never had to play in the dark. Night only lasting for an hour or two makes it feel managable enough to play through.

Also those "survivor" vehicles are pretty neat, although the helicopter seems a LITTLE silly (not saying I don't like it though).

Is this a completely new mod then or just new maps n things?

On the Day Z I always go to servers during day time. It's just too damned dark to do anything in game at night. Can't turn the light on cos everything see's you, can pick anything up cos you can't see anything. I hope the Day Z standalone "Borrows" the idea of NVG's. Let's see Hammerpoint kick in then and start banging on about how the Day Z dev's have stolen their idea's when the boot is on the other foot.

Although an accelerated cycle is cool and all, I think 4 hours is WAY too fast. Maybe 8 hours.
And Im sad to see a "leveling" system bein implemented as well. I wish people would imagine something more for endgame than "level 99"

And I agree... the helo just looks terrible... but whatever, lol. all in all it looks interesting, ill have to give it a shot.
This seems too much like fallout3 on VirtualReality2 engine.
Or perhaps "Land of the Dead: The Game"

You see this is the problem. if you view that thread you wil notice that somebody mixed up
day z and war z. I fear that will be always be the case, even when day z standalone is released.
Don't you think Bohemia could sue Hammerpoint? Do they have a case?

Anyway the mod of the mod looks pretty good.

Ye this annoyed me aswell, the very first post in that thread. Someone thought this was warz renaming.
Sadly I do not think they would have much of a case against them. Would be entertaining tho if they did sue them I must say.

It sucks that people will be lumping warz in with the dayz standalone when its out.

yes but Hammerpoint deliberately tarnished Bohemia's reputation, by naming it similarly. Hammerpoint knew exactly what they were doing.

Well with the swelling popularity with the mod then warz, it has attracted some of the lowest forms of gamers.
Most people in both games atm just shoot on site, its rather sad, and a big turn off of the game.

yeah there's alot of custom content there which is great I mean I got lucky enough to find a nice suv which someone tried to steal from me so i shot him( damn thieves!!). I moved towards a building to go looting and was shot myself...once more servers open up for it it'll be great fun

There will always be people like that. It's a shame really that there is so much kill on sight. The best times are had when you meet random people and team up.
