DayZ Epoch Server-Files

DayZ mod that add many new things to the Vanilla Version + new Map


Arma2 DayZ: Epoch is an unofficial open source client and server mod based on DayZ Community Edition. Arma2 DayZ: Epoch Mod brings more RP to DayZ Mod with; Metals based economy, NPC Traders, Lockable Vaults, More roles, and more.

Arma2 DayZ: Epoch is set in a future time after the Great Infection. Humanity is slowly returning to the wasteland, industrious survivors have begun to join together in small groups and rebuild society. Small camps of merchants have started to pop up to do business with survivors who collect goods from the wasted remnants of civilization. Wholesalers have landed on the shores offering imported goods to aid the rebuilding effort.

All is not safe however some vestiges of infection still remain and rogue bandits still roam the countryside preying on unsuspecting survivors.

Survive, explore, build wealth, make your way through the harsh environment and assist in the effort to rebuild, or burn it all down its your choice, live in the Epoch.


Manual Client install instructions:

Note: Both server and client should be updated to current A2OA stable 1.63.131129 or newer -- Beta build use is not recommended, wait until A2/OA updates are pushed to the stable channel.

Basic Install Guide

  • Install or update your [Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 (x86 version)]. It is recommended that you install all previous Visual C++ Redistributables (x86 versions).
  • Download both client and server files and extract to the root Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead folder. Example: C:Program Files (x86)SteamsteamappscommonArma 2 Operation Arrowhead. On some Windows systems you may need to "UnBlock" the dll files. Right-click the file, Properties and click "Unblock".
  • Install MySQL server and create a new MySQL database called dayz_epoch. Import the epoch.sql file.
  • Open HiveExt.ini and change your MySQL connection information. Open config.cfg in the same folder and change the admin password.
  • Launch the server with -mod=@DayZ_Epoch;@DayZ_Epoch_Server;. See the *.bat files in Config-Examples.

Basic Upgrading Guide

  • Perform steps #1 and #2 in the basic install guide, above. Be sure to update to the new MPMission, dayz_server, BattlEye filters and HiveExt.dll too.
  • Connect to your MySQL server. Make a backup first to be safe, then run the 1.0.6_Updates.sql file on your dayz_epoch database. Be sure to read the comments in the SQL field, especially at the bottom of the file if you are using single curreny or Precise Base Building 1.0.4 or older.
  • Inside the "Keys" folder on your server remove any previous day_epoch*.bikey keys. As of 1.0.6 our bikey is called dayz_epoch106.bikey and we will use a new one for each release.
