Ideally, server should run 24×7. I test patches and modifications ahead of time to avoid any coding issues. Most of our downtime is related to hosting/server/networking issues out of our control. When that happens, we’ll work with the hosting company to get it back online asap. If The Dead Walk is not listed but it still shows in… Read More Server Status – Online/Offline/Other
I get asked a lot about hosting a DayZ Mod Server. The simplest method is to purchase one from a game hosting provider, but since Arma2 OA is so old, they are getting hard to find. The last one I used, vilayer, was good for a while and then they stopped responding to tickets. I couldn’t… Read More How-To Host a DayZ Mod Server

The Balota Airstrip is next to the town of Balota, a popular spawn location. This area turns into a battlezone from time to time.

You might as well call it noob & bandit heaven because both of those types of players hang out at the NWAF. “Can someone give me a ride to NWAF?” seems to be a popular request. If you ask “Why?”,… Read More Northwest Airfield (NWAF)
The Northeast Airfield (NEAF) is in the NE corner of the map next to Krasnostov. The NEAF is not nearly as popular as the NWAF and is considered generally safer. Safe is relative since there are some very good sniping spots on the hills. The NEAF has good value since it has hangars, a military barracks,a control tower,… Read More Northeast Airfield (NEAF)
Berenzino is a large city in the in the northeast. It is a spawn choice, but far less popular that Elektro or Cherno. This is puzzling since Berenzino has plenty of places to loot include, warehouses, barns, markets, a hospital, a military camp and other buildings. Berenzino is also reasonably close to the Northeast Air… Read More Berenzino

The table includes the Class and Description and capacity of Players, Weapons, Items & Backpacks. # Class Description P W I B 1. AH6X Grey Little… Read More Vehicle List
80% of you are bad drivers. Motorcycles & bicycles are spawned, ready to go, and usually need wheels within 20 minutes. Watch out for obstructions! Cars, trucks and everything else needs to be repaired. Why spend so much time fixing it and then crash it right away?
