The Dead Return is based on Vanilla DayZ Mod with the following modifications.


  1. Custom AI Missions (DZMS)
    • Over 20 written by me. Based on DZMS
  2. Group System (DZGM)
    • Right click on radio to invite other players
  3. Extra Points of Interest
    • I scoured the internet for the best available
  4. Humanity-Based Loadout
    • Levels for  Survivor / Hero / Bandit
  5. Alternate Clothing/Skins
    • Right click on the solider, sniper, camo to see what’s available
  6. Extra Loot
    • Trust me or read the explanation.
  7. Increased Max Vehicles to 100
    • I’ve analysed this many times and 100 is plenty.
  8. Custom Spawn Inventory for all vehicles
    • Vanilla has a subset of what’s here.
  9. Turned off the heat/temperature requirement
    • It’s the simple things
  10. Added all possible vehicles to the spawns and missions
    • And a few more!
  11. Some Extra Scripts
    • Debug Menu, Suicide, Bury Body

It’s a delicate balance to try and encourage survival and PVP at the same time. There are enough weapons & vehicles and I don’t want epoch, so suggestions that encourage survival and movement around the map are the best.

I expect you to behave and be respectful. Please read the player behavior post, but if you don’t, these are the basics:

  1. Hacking/Glitching/Duping/etc = Permanent BAN
  2. Combat Logging = Temporary BAN and/or DEATH
  3. DISRESPECT = Permanent BAN
