The year is 2025, six months after person or persons unknown unleashed the H7D3 virus on the world, killing a large proportion of the world's population and turning many of the "survivors" into mindless "zombies" - feral and infectious, very much alive and very, very hungry...
Trying to create the feel of John Ringo's Black Tide Rising universe with less weaponry available, though if you want to chase Zs with a Saiga they are around. Knock yourself out.
Visit the EpochZ Community Forum or contact us on Discord.
Ryan's Zombies and Demons: currently using COS to spawn the Zs, though there are also native spawns around the map with more to come. Normal infected in urban areas are walkers, the spawns are fast Zombies so watch out.
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: for upcoming map changes and the ports of old Wicked AI missions.
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
RDS Civilian Vehicles: primarily for the deployable bicycle but you also get a load of old favourites including Thomas the Tractor and the excellent Yamaha TT650!
Enhanced Movement Mod: Sneeki Breeki your way into a base with a buddy vaulting you over the wall, or just climb on a roof or through a window to avoid the infected!
Hellenic Armed Forces Mod (HAFM): for all those nice Greek uniforms and vehicles.
NI Arms All-in-One Mod: All the weapons and attachments from the mod are available at the traders and spawn as loot.
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
DayZ style Helicopter Crash Sites: with reduced CUP-based loot.
C-130 Supply Drops, guarded by AI and with CUP-based loot.
Deployable and packable bicycles and unarmed mozzies, so long as you have a Tool Kit (available in starting gear) and the other build parts (just Vehicle Repair Parts for a bicycle).
New buildables at your base including working Portable Lights, a Sink and Field Toilet (both are water sources), Razor Wire, Watch Tower, various Sandbag Walls, Fuel Pump, large and small Camo Nets, Loudspeakers, a Burn Barrel and an ATM.
Black Market Traders in trader camps and elsewhere.
HALO/Ground Spawns and you can select limited Starting Gear
Halv's Repair and Reammo Script, rearm and repair your vehicles in the repair shops at gas stations
@Sp4rkY's Extended Safe Zones with Vehicle Protection!
Advanced Towing and Advanced Rappelling
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. No building restrictions, build where ever you want 150m Jammer range 7-day base maintenance 48-hour vehicle locks 4 hour restarts, day/night cycle PvE or PvP, your choice (but remember the AI and Zs will be after you too) The only safe zones are the five marked on the map (north, south, east, west and central). Everywhere else on the map is a free-fire zone so stay frosty, and alert.
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!

CBA_A3 and ACE3
Ryan's Zombies and Demons: using COS to spawn the Zs, though there are also native spawns around the map with more to come. Normal infected in urban areas are "slow", the spawns are "fast" Zombies so watch out.
ARMA3 Apex. Obviously
Tryk's Multi-Play Uniforms. Version 0.95 (with the armour fixes for vests). The un-sided uniforms work well with the siding changes on the server.
USAF 2015: for the extra transport aircraft and others. Download from Armaholic at http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=25512
EpochZ Shopping: misnamed now... but it adds MattAust's food and beer as consumable items and will eventually have a number of Epoch modifications in it. He has kindly given me permission to upload this to Steam so it will soon be a download from there, but right now you can get it at http://www.epochz.net/downloads/EpochZ_Shopping.zip. Note that the license from MattAust (copied in this addon) prohibits this mod being run on monetized servers!
Specialist Military Arms and MRT Accessories. If you are using Steam for downloads then it will download MRT Accessories when you subscribe to SMA.
Mershun Cigarettes. Well since I have ACE... why not smoke a Murshun Down Under?
A3EAI: with vehicle, UGV 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).
SEM, BlckEagl's and WAI Missions: all with weapons, equipment and loot customized for EpochZ and ACE 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

(skip to the end for a tl;dr if you wish)
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!
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

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.
