New Feature! Check it out!

Zombies are Awesome. But who wants to be stuck in a building? Unlocking one room at a time? The ArmA 2 engine provides 1000km2 terrains in which to explore. My missions utilize this to create an epic zombie experience. Enjoy!

Dynamic Zombie Sandbox 1.0 Release


Dynamic Zombie Sandbox V1.0
Dynamic Zombie Sandbox V1.0 Dynamic Zombie Sandbox V1.0

What is DZS? (For you DayZ players)

Hello, I'm Craig *Shakes hand with reader*

This is Dynamic Zombie Sandbox, a one of a kind mission for ArmA 2 (OA,CO,A2,A2 Free, and Take on Helicopters). It started as an idea of a full map zombie survival mission, much like DayZ, but this came before DayZ. I wanted something that was different every time, that you could port to any map, and provided tons of fun. This is what I came up with.

DZS has 36 parameters that the host can choose. These allow you near endless customization of your zombie experience. You can play in the day, the night, the dusk,with fog, with rain, with clear skies, or make it a surprise. You can start with weapons, without weapons, with/without maps, with your friends, in the middle of nowhere. You can find weapons in buildings, in cars, and in ammo boxes. Loot can be plentiful, or extremely scarce. The mission can have hundreds of cars, or a scant few. Zombies can sense you from miles away or can be fairly stupid. The only limit is your server, and you don't even need a dedicated.

This is an example of a few of the options available, and many more are on the way. There is no question on whether this will be in ArmA 3, it will be added ASAP in the community alpha. I have big plans to add much more features to make the experience even better and more customizable.

Installation? Easy. 1.5mb file goes into the MPmissions folder, or just join a server online. The file will be Downloaded automatically.

DL is on the bottom.
Enjoy.

Overview of 1.0

After quite a long time, I finally have 1.0 ready for release. This is the most complete, stable version of the mission that I have. It also most fulfills what I wanted to put into this mission back in Version .75. Many new features have been added and many, many fixes have been made. Also, I have already started work on 1.05.

Making the mission more stable was one of the largest goals of 1.0. It still won't last forever on dedi, but it will last longer. Further improvements are in my head and will be added in 1.05.

What's New?

  • Fixed lag issues from .95
  • Weapons in buildings, a little like DayZ
  • Local hosts couldn't use the logistic features
  • GPS would put markers on other players
  • Sidemissions never end
  • Weather can be completely random
  • Sidemission markers no longer give the exact location, if chosen

Thanks to:

SRU team, thanks for the ideas and the testing - Sruclan.net
Dethorath - Helped a lot with sounds and testing
Tonic - Told me to abandon construction, and made the new Loading screen, he also made the time sync correctly!
VVC team
Loyal players
Everyone who hosts the mission
Celery for making the zombies!! (and ArmA 3 MP)

Notes:
1. A2 version hasn't changed much, but I did add make it so weapons would spawn in vehicles, and a few bugfixes. The CO version is the main one I work on, and A2 lacks a lot of the scripting features of OA and CO, which makes it much harder to port the latest version over to it.

2. If you spawn with a weapon but cannot shoot, just press F.

If the options I gave you don't work, you can look at some of the past comments and Craig gives you some other links.

You can go to the Bohemia Forum and download it there, or you should be able to download it on moddb. If neither of these work, go to Google and type in, Dynamic Zombie Sandbox Update 1.25 and click the first option they give you.

That's odd. I can't download it still. It must be the firewall at my school blocking it for some reason. It just says "Internet Explorer cannot display this page" or whatever. Similar problems in other browsers.

I guess I will just wait for the next version on ModDb. Thanks

What do you mean? Extract the .zip files? You don't need to extract the .pbo files, just place them in the MPmissions folder.

I love the Mod/Mission but I would LOVE if there were a SAVE OPTION, and that zombies don't run through the objects I put down.
