Will there be anymore support for the DayZ Epoch Arma 2 mod or will all development officially stop?

We will still support DayZ Epoch Arma 2 mod but my involvement will be limited. A 1.0.3.1 hotfix will be released in the next few weeks and we will still accept pull requests on the github for fixes. For 1.0.4 we are looking to add some features from the community, optimize, and to finalize the dll and database schema.

Good to hear! Hopefully any support will either be largely un-needed or will continue on the great work happening here already.

 

Do you plan to release the A3 Epoch files publically or will you be hosting your own servers to preserve the way you intend for A3:E to be played?

Looking forward to it, and will be glad to see Epoch take it's own route and finally break off.

We had plans to make Epoch for A3 before the contest was announced, however It certainly provides some extra incentive. Starting from scratch will take some time but we don't have to be the best mod either.

very nice, but sounds like a lot of work if you want to start fresh.

Nope, and I'd actually prefer you edit your image lol.  We don't intend to use anything from DayZ.  Nothing; no assets, code etc.
@Axe Cop in regards to starting fresh,  it's actually quite liberating; and of course it's going to be involved...but not nearly enough to discourage it from happening.

Very excited to see where this goes. Lots of creativity and instrinsic value built up in these devs. Thanks for your time and effort guys. I'm expecting to remain a supporter/promoter of the mod for some time to come.

These two comments are at odds with each other.

Actually they are not. Arma 3 only has one type of plane and only a limited amount of weapons. There are no m4's in Arma3. There is an M4, M16 etc pack on Armoholic.

When I say mod, I do not mean addon, I mean full conversion as Epoch will be. There's nothing wrong with addons.

Actually they are. While I do use the Armored SUV I would be the first to tell you that it probably shouldn't be in Epoch. Depending on what direction they determine to go with it now that it is uncoupled from DayZ a full blown Aircraft Carrier and fighter jets probably shouldn't be in a "survival" game. I assume Epoch will continue to be a survival style game but if it is going to go toward military sim then I would be wrong. 

Ever hear the phrase, "Less is more."? It can be applied here. ARMA III can have all the extra military sim things, let Epoch continue to be survival based.
