ARMA3 DayZ Mission System (DZMS)

This is a purely derivative port of the DayZ Mission System to ARMA3/Epoch. I have added functionality where appropriate (equipping uniforms for example) and stripped and replaced ARMA2 or DayZ/Epoch specific code in this implementation.

The DayZ Mission System is a very good, lightweight and modular mission system.


There are a lot of people who have contributed to DZMS on A2/DayZ/Epoch. Please check the links below for many of them. Personally they all have my thanks for providing a solid mission system that has been a lot of fun to play in the years I've spent on DayZ/Epoch:


Download from GitHub at:


Installation Instructions

If using Vanilla ARMA3/Epoch, and you just want to just try it out simply download and upload the DZMS.pbo in the @EpochHive folder into the @EpochHive/addons folder on your server.

The source files, including the three config files are located in the DZMS folder on GitHub

Coming soon

  • All the missions included within the latest version of DZMS 1.1 uploaded by @JasonTM will be implemented using CUP Terrains Core for use on maps and servers that support it.
  • A module to support Static weapons at missions
  • More diverse and varied loot tables for custom crates
  • A port of the DZMS Hotspots code for roadblocks and other such interesting things
  • The ability to run multiple major, minor and hotspot missions
  • Better configuration instructions and a mission file design tutorial

Couple of things I need to fix (minor things) and will be adding all the missions for those with CUP Terrains Core on their servers. Will provide an update in the morning. Does work and look so much better with CUP Terrains Core (and CUP Weapons/Vehicles for the graphics on the mission notifications)

Not yet for the bloodbags... I have been working on some stuff on the side though... Was using them on my ACE3 Epoch server when I had it so that you could transfuse into and out of the bloodbag

Works with few changes. But you need a client side mod to handle medical properly and make epi pens a magazine. Also, infiSTAR needs a small bit of code removed, if you use it, to allow advanced throwing and tactical ladders to work with the scroll wheel. I'll put up a mod on Steam with just the character model changes if you'd like @Sneer

Mostly, but there will be inconsistancies without the extra body hit locations in the arms and legs. You also need the new login, respawn and other scripts I have for medical persistence and to stop Epoch from handling damage...

To fix the issue with all the missions spawning too close, edit the _okDis in DZMSFindPos. Currently in your code it is set to 1000. When I was testing DZMS on Altis I had to bump it up to 6000.

To get missions off the salt flats I just used the blacklist.



This is pulled from the easy port I had of DZMS to run on Altis Life back before Arma updated and broke my method.

BIS_fnc_findSafePos basically looks for safe positions on the map based on Area, Terrain Slope, Shoreline, Near Objects, and etc. It doesn't just select randomly on the map. The main issue with it is that it will select the same safe areas repeatedly since it wasn't designed to be used this way. DZMS is designed to use code to get around that.

There could be other solutions instead of findSafePos, but it would require a lot more code than what we have already, or may require looping more times for a good position.

I get an annoying /bin/config message when some missions start, I think there is a typo in the crate items though I can't find it. You will also see a blank item in the crate. Has anyone found this typo or bad item?

      This is an update to the DayZ Mission System by Vampire that was updated for DayZ Epoch by ebayShopper: https://github.com/ebayShopper/DZMS-DayZMissionSystem
      This includes adding a few missions from EMS 0.3 by Fuchs:
      1. Added a variable in DZMSConfig.sqf to enable the AI to have money in their wallets if ZSC is installed.
      //If you have ZSC installed then you can set this to true to place money in ai wallets. DZMSAICheckWallet = false; 2. Added the Overwatch weapons to the AI and Crate configs.
      3. Expanded the selection of gear and vehicles available to the missions, AI config, and crate spawns.
      4. Created additional crate spawning options.
      5. Changed "UH60Wreck_DZ" to "UH60_ARMY_Wreck_burned_DZ" in minor mission SM4 because of "Cannot create non-ai vehicle UH60Wreck_DZ" error.
      6. Converted the format of a few EMS 0.3 missions and added them to the mission spawning arrays.
      7. There is an issue with the new small ammo boxes and medical crates which is not resolved.

      Here is a list of all of the Major and Minor missions with a few notes.

      DZMS is a logic and useability rewrite of the DayZChernarus Mission System.
      DZMS should be considered as an "updated" DayZChernarus Mission System.

      Why Use DZMS instead of DayZChernarus MS?
      DZMS has a simple Configuration File, no more digging through code No more junk code! (Anyone who has read add_unit_server will understand) Simple Install! DZMS Requires a single line edit. No more server_cleanup confusion! No more messy mission code! DZMS uses functions for most code. DZMS is rewrote with all maps in mind, not just Chernarus. Hence the Generic Rename. DZMS is completely server sided! No marker files needed in the Mission PBO! No more "Novy Sobor Bug"! Plus, many features have been added!
      Option to save vehicles to the database! If Vehicle Saving is off, Users are warned when entering vehicles! Randomized Crate Loot! No more static crate loot! Adjustable Body Despawn Time! Optional: AI Ran Over have no gear! More!  
      The Current Version is v1.2
