Anybody have ARMA II? I'm tempted to buy it. I've been tempted to buy ARMA for a while, and this mod just makes it better.

Apparently, this mod boosted ARMA 2 sales so much that the ARMA devs are working a patch to better support this mod. Awesome developers.

That being said, I'm waiting for a sale.
DOOF

Day to day sales increased by 5x. I went ahead and bought it. Support devs that support modders. Also, ARMA III sounds amazing, and need to get used to the control scheme lol.

Day Z looks really fun.

I'm hoping for a standalone version myself, but I'm willing to buy ARMA2 just to play Day Z when I have the money. :)

I can't remember correctly, but does this mod use permadeath?

Be careful, my friends. This one just affected the servers, but still.

I recently got this mod. Great fun. It's still really buggy and the learning curve is huge, but if you get past that, it's incredibly fun.

I heard you don't even get a pistol in the beginning anymore.

Which sucks, considering I fucked my last character.

Yup. No more pistol.

I recently wondered into a military base by accident. As I left one of the buildings, I was standing face to face with 3 bandits with assault rifles pointed at my face. They told me to "Drop everything you have. Now."

I did as they commanded and then ran to a hillside. I looked back down where they were and they were all dead. 4 Zombies took them out while they were taking my things. I waited for the zombies to wonder away, then got my stuff, along with an assault rifle, 4 cokes, and a ghille suit. ;)

Yeah, the char I mentioned above, I had a sniper, plenty to drink, but I was out of food. It had been a long time since I logged in, and was already loosing blood to starvation. I wondered into a shed, looking for some, and found an AFK guy. Decided it had to be done, I shot him in the head. I had forgotten to shut the door though, and was swarmed by zombies that heard the shot. I ragequit, and haven't been back on lol.

I think they should make a standalone version of this. :D

Something similar happened to me and a friend! We found an AFK guy in a field with a crossbow. I had a hatchet at the time, but my friend had no way of defending himself, so I hacked the guy to death and took his crossbow. We were then eaten by zombies. Karma.
