New DayZ Mod for Arma II

The DayZ Mod Website now offers a new version of DayZ, the zombie-themed modification for Arma II, Bohemia Interactive's military shooter sequel. The new version is 1.6.0.1, but we cannot link to the patch notes because the forums for the project are currently offline. Thanks Shok.

It's kinda sad that people expect so much from a mod (for any game really). These days if whatever someone releases for free as a mod isn't of commercial quality all you hear is bitching and moaning. People also seem to think games are made specifically for them these days, and if they don't like something it should clearly be changed, because, you know, they are so important.

This is compounded by the Arma series not being the most user friendly game ever made. It's "mass appeal" with this mod has brought a lot of new people to the game, which is nice, but most won't stay. It's not CoD simple, and that usually is too much for some.

People make mods for fun in their free time. The fact that people are enjoying Day Z and did not have to pay anything for it is great. The fact so many feel entitled to bitch and moan about stuff not working is sad. The modders make what they want, how they want it, in their free time. If you don't like what they are doing then learn to do the crap they do and spend hours upon hours of your own free time to make it the way you think it should be. Then sit back and prepare to hear what you used to sound like when all the people come whining about how it should have been done. See how much you want to complain after that.
