EpochZ: Bandit Country

Recommended Posts

Travel back to where it all began...

When the Pacific Flu hit Chernarus the country was recovering from the disastrous civil war that had wracked the country for years. Luckily, Russian, CDF, Red Star, NAPA and CFOR units were already in place, forgot their former rivalries and immediately jumped in to help... It wasn't long before they too had succumbed to the plague!

Required Mods

Epoch

Ryan's Zombies and Demons. Zombies can infect you. Watch out because if you die from the virus then your body may not be where you left it when you return...

CBA_A3, CUP Weapons, CUP Units, CUP Vehicles: it's 2025 with 2025 weapons and vehicles. I've completely overhauled loots.h for CUP but not increased the loot spawn chances.

CUP Terrains Core

DS Houses: Opening up lots of previously unopened buildings. Custom loot spawner to generate ground loot in these and other buildings

Chernarus Redux: Opening up more vehicles and a map with a distinctly post-apocalyptic feel

RDS Civilian Pack for all the missing DayZ/Epoch vehicles including the bicycles, Thomas the Tractor and the unsurpassed Yamaha TT650!

Tryk's Multi-Player Uniforms: lots more uniforms for the uniform junkies out there. This is the one that you want if you are downloading via Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=779520435

Enhanced Movement so you can climb over walls and onto buildings to escape the infected

LordRampantHumps Items Pack for apples and pears that can be harvested from apple and pear trees

Massi's WW2 Units adding some extra weapons, including the Mosin, Kar98, a few SMGs and pistols

Kurt's Survival System (KSS) for and host of Slavic food and drink, including vodka and beer

@EpochZ_Cows for Cows!!!

@EpochZMod which provides new models for certain base building structures, adds new equipment and base building options and modifies infected skins and behaviour so that they have animal, not human AI intelligence

Scripts

A3EAI: with vehicle and helicopter patrols. AI patrols and spawns replace the default Epoch antagonists (apart from the Epoch UAVs and subsequent militia if you don;t shoot them down). The AI will interact with the Zs and vice versa.

SEM, BlackEagl's and WAI Missions: all with weapons, equipment and loot customized for CUP and including SEM Convoy missions. And yes, there is the WAI Nuke mission. If no one's dealt with that before the timer expires run like hell :huh:

DayZ style Helicopter Crash Sites: with reduced CUP-based loot and infected "defending" them.

C-130 Supply Drops, guarded by AI and with CUP-based loot.

Black Market Traders in the three trader cities (Stary, Bash and Klen) and elsewhere.

HALO/Ground Spawns and you can select limited Starting Gear

Rewrite of LootSpawner to spawn zombies on buildings rather than in an area. The Zs (which are reskined to match the map - including military Zs - are also dumber than in standard Ryan's Zombies with animal intelligence and thus easier to sneak past and evade). There are generally lower amounts of loot than normal on EpochZ servers though to fit the feel of the server

"New" Wicked AI Missions, including several more ported from ARMA2/Epoch including the slaughter house, abandoned trader, drone pilot and Old MacDonald's farm. More to come soon!

New items include Hunting Knifes, gas masks, laptops and PC Parts for looting and lots of new food and drink (fruits together with the Russian food and drink from KSS Mod, including vodka)

New Buildables: Sleeping Bags (green, blue and brown) - can be made spawn points, a Large Workbench - required for crafting more complex base kits, Storage Crates and a Portable Generator. Also have provided new models for certain building parts to better fit into Chernarus Redux including the Plot Pole (you'll recognise this from somewhere...), Outhouse, Well and Deer Stand

Cows! kill them and take and cook the steaks. Note, to gut animals you now need a hunting knife or hatchet

Can opener, knife or hatchet required to eat from canned food. You get less or more hunger back depending on which you use

Harvest apples and pears from their trees (and sunflowers for their seeds too!)

New Points of Interest designed by @BetterDeadThanZed including new trader camp layouts at Bash and Stary

All uniforms are unlocked for all players

Deploy a bicycle (with vehicle repair parts) or a Mozzie (with vic repair parts, an engine block, fuel tank, rotor and duct tape) via the action (scrollwheel) menu

A complete rework of the hunger and thirst values from food and drink

New spawns now have energy so that they can build campsites

Halv's Repair and Reammo Script, rearm and repair your vehicles at the kiosks at gas stations.

Extended Safe Zones with Vehicle Protection!

Advanced Towing and Advanced Rappelling

And lots, lots more...

Features

  • All players are BLUFOR, roaming, dynamic and mission AI are OPFOR, infected are RESISTANCE allowing the interaction between the Ai and infected - they will fight each other when spawned together.
  • DayZ Trader cities at Stary, Bash and Klen
  • Dynamic vehicle wrecks on the roads make driving a more interesting experience...
  • No building restrictions, build where ever you want
  • 75m Jammer range
  • 7-day base maintenance
  • 48-hour vehicle locks
  • 4 hour restarts, day/night cycle
  • PvP, but attacking other players in or around the trader cities is prohibited and will result in a ban!

There have been quite a few additions to Bandit Country over the last couple of weeks, including:

  • The addition of the RDS Civilian Pack mod adding all the missing vehicles that you love so well, including the mountain bike, Thomas the Tractor, Skoda vans, an ambulance and militia car with working sirens and lights among many others.
  • Deploy and repack a bicycle if you have a ToolKit (available in the initial gear selection).
  • New Buildables at your base (all are saved to the database and behave as any other base parts, apart from the lack of PhysX when building): working Portable Lights, a Well and Outhouse (both are water sources), Razor Wire, Deer Hut, various Sandbag Walls, Fuel Pump, large and small Camo Nets, Loudspeakers, a Burn Barrel and a wall-mounted Phone (which acts as an ATM).
  • Toggle on and off plot pole jammer boundary markers to see the extent of your demesne :ph34r:
  • "New" map additions including a checkpoint on the coast road NE of Elektro, expansion of the NEAF and a medical camp at the NWAF (based on those in ARMA2 but completely laid out by me in the editor from scratch).
  • Dynamic Road Debris from Epoch 0.6 Experimental.

See the EpochZ community forum for the crafting recipes for the new buildables.

EpochZ: Bandit Country has now been updated to use the new Chernarus Redux mod with (as far as they have got so far) a really good post-apocalyptic feel. The ground loot spawner has been modified to spawn loot in the new open buildings that mod provides (as well as the ones previously opened by OCP/DS Houses), including the new open hospital!

Very pleased to announce that EpochZ: Bandit Country has been updated to Epoch Experimental (pre-release Epoch 1.0). The next update of Epoch has so many great features that really suit the new Chernarus Redux map and the two together complement each other perfectly. Some of the changes already included in Experimental are listed in the Change Log but there is much more there already (including persistent tents, acting as unsecured storage) and much more to come yet!

Epoch Experimental is available on Steam Workshop.

Updated to Chernarus Redux 0.4. Major changes:

- Added Underground Train Station
- Added clutter to eastern coast factory
- Added Evacuation Site in front of Chernogorsk Hospital parking lot
- Added Klen Hill Evacuation Site
- Added Southwest Roadblock Checkpoint
- Added Rats to environment
- Added Rats animations
- Added future models and tweaks to 3den configs
- Added further clutter to several random locations
- Tweaked Simulation Weather

Unfortunately the Klen Evac Site is pretty much inaccessible by land so I have removed that as a trader camp. Am talking to map mods cause the interior of the camp is perfect and fits the map (obviously) if only there was moderately easy land access and a helipad. Will be building a new (hopefully temporary) NE trader camp where the old Hero Camp was (NE of NEAF, S of Olsha).
Underground railroad station is... well, you figure it out and remember, no base building restrictions except not close to safe zones.

Now I have to persuade @Helion4 to add a model for rat meat :ph34r:

Deleted a couple of map objects to create a space for a helipad, placed an ATM, black market and other traders, so the new/old Klen trader camp has been reestablished in Chernarus Redux's new Klen Evacuation Centre! :cool:

I just decided to play some more Epoch after reading about the upcoming version 1.0 and found this server. I like it so far. Just one thing...

Some changes were made on EpochZ: Bandit Country yesterday and today, mostly bug fixes but some new things too:

  • Fixed the DayZ-style status icons used on this server
  • Placed a fix to try and prevent newly-spawned vehicles from blowing up when they are unvirtualized by ARMA Dynamic Simulation
  • Added the Fly By event script (just a little bit of fun)
  • Added some items missing from the traders (including Apex 4WD vehicles)
  • Removed radiation and toxicity effects from sardines
  • Spawn gear and locations have been freshened up
  • New weather script has been installed
  • Improved loot at Helicopter Crash Sites
  • Removed the trees from the spawn chamber (finally...)
  • Fixed a glitch where AI would not target players (mysteriously no player ever reported this glitch... odd that?)
  • Fixed the spawning of cows
  • Fixed the issue that spammed a warning message at server connection (had no gameplay effect)

More to come!

EpochZ: Skunkworks mod updated, not the standard @EpochZMod that is used on Bandit Country

The Chernarus Redux map is actually what updated and is preventing us from logging on to the server. Or at least that's where all the error messages I'm getting seem to be coming from.

      This server is down until further notice!
      Given that President Stacey Smith's husband, former post-Fall CINCLANT and Secretary of War, Steven John Smith is a naturalized US citizen hailing from Australia it came as no surprise that the first reclamation efforts in the western Pacific were targeted to reduce the infected presence in the land of his birth. Given the size of Australia this was not an easy task, made only more difficult by the presence of renegades who'd survived the Fall and incursions from other nations, especially China and Indonesia, who were slowly recovering their own lands and looking for more pleasant places to call home in this Fallen world.
      As always, trying to continue to develop and expand the feel of John Ringo's Black Tide Rising universe into the future. Our third ARMA3/Epoch server features Vanilla ARMA3 and Apex weaponry, vehicles and equipment on an incredible and huge map.
      This server also operates as a test bed for the EpochZ team. We have listened to those demanding more realism in the zombie apocalypse and as a result this server features the use of ACE3 in an Epoch environment. This is a work in progress at the moment but most of ACE3's functionality is up and working. We are fully engaged in implementing ACE into the Epoch environment and would welcome feedback to help us get this completed as soon as we can. Relevant Epoch equipment (for example, GPSs, Rangefinders, First Aid Kits, etc.) are fully replaced by ACE equivalents (we are using ACE's Advanced Medical System, with everyone permissioned to use it) in loot tables, ground and mission loot and we're working every day to make the integration of ACE and Epoch as seamless as possible!
      Oh yes, the Multigun... nope, not on this server!

      Hello,
      I'm Dan also known as orangesherbet- haven't been active on these forums for some time but I've been a tester and supporter of Epoch since the early days in 2012.  More importantly, I've made lasting friendships with the development team and surrounding community of Epoch Mod. With the release of version 0.5, I wanted to organize an event that would bring all of us together to celebrate the time we've spent playing, testing, and developing (I'm not a dev) the mod!
      The event itself will take place on Chernarus, where everything started!  We will have several activities for participants including a race from Kamenka debug line to NE Airfield,  a melee arena, demolition derby, "Tower of Terror" built by community developer and friend SLI, stunt contest, fishing, and base building!  
      I'll be hosting the event on my stream and Discord, but I do want to make it clear that this event is about the celebration of Epoch Mod's development and not a promotion for my stream or Discord server.  I would recommend participants join my Discord server as that is where players will be welcomed to chat with each other and the admins to help us stay organized and have fun!  Feel free to leave the Discord server at the conclusion of the event if you wish.  We do have another Epoch Event in the near future and I will share that information with everyone once we have a date set!
      tl;dr
      ------------------------------
      Event Info:
      Date: Saturday April 22nd, 2017
      Start Time: 12pm EST / 5pm GMT (Find your time here: http://bit.ly/2pm6kXR via WorldTimeBuddy) Event will be at least 6 hours.
      Game Mode / Map: Epoch Mod Chernarus
      Server Information: Event has been completed
      Discord Server (for information, support): https://discordapp.com/invite/orangesherbet  Free to use program- please use the text channel #event for help with anything regarding the event.
      Mods required for the event (all available on Steam Workshop, total file size over 14gb): Epoch Mod, CUP Units, CUP Vehicles, CUP Terrains - Maps, CUP Terrains - Core, CUP Weapons, CBA_A3, Ryan's Zombies and Demons
      Stream channel if you care to watch the event: https://twitch.tv/orangesherbet
      ------------------------------
      Thanks to [VB]AWOL, SLI, Pumba, Konc, Robio, TipsyJack, somyc, Buddha187, and Philanthropy for help setting up this event and [VB]AWOL for providing the event server. Promo image made by SLI.
      Stay Tuned for server info Saturday morning!

      I'm really not sure whether this is an Epoch problem or not but I've not seen a bug report covering it on the CUP bug reporting system and I thought I'd check here first before opening one there.
      If you get in a spawned CUP AH-64, repair it up and then turn the engine on the rotor immediately breaks. This happens when you are clear of all surrounding terrain that may break it. I haven't seen it happen on other helos which may suggest that it's a CUP problem but I just want to check whether that's the case. If so, I'll report it on their system.
      P.S. I have reported the issue of the CUP L85 silencer not being able to be attached to the L85A2 to them and the issue is being fixed for the next upgrade.
      EDIT: looks like this was a CUP issue. Bug assigned on their tracker.
    • By arc7r7
      Does anyone know if its possible now with 0.3.8 to change the uniform configs so all uniform's can be worn now and used, like CUPs and Tryks uniforms.
