The Dead Return Napf was shutdown on Feb 9, 2017.
The low pop didn’t bother me as much as not being able to spend time developing it. If I could have gotten Napf on DayZLauncher, then it might have worked on its own. I just didn’t have the time to work on it. The Napf project spawned the alt-map project for DayZ Mod, so it has been a success. If you are looking to start a DayZ Mod server based on Lingor, Namalsk, Napf, Panthera, Ruegen, Sahrani or Takistan, let me know.
THE DEAD RETURN NAPF
I’ve started a new server based on the NAPF map. The NAPF map is about twice as big as Chernarus and I also added roaming AI. There are plenty of vehicles as well.
The only downside is that while there are more enterable buildings, the non-Chernarus buildings don’t have loot yet (code was checked into dayzmod vanilla, but didn’t make it in the 1.8.8 patch)
- Download NAPF from here http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=17088
- Open the archive and copy the @Napf folder to your arma2oa directory, probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 2 OA\
- Cut/paste the code below into TDR_NAPF.BAT. Make sure to adjust any paths per your system.
- Run TDR_NAPF.BAT
