Epoch base building?

4 posts in this topic

Hi Guys. The server I'm playing on seems to allow turning a barn etc. into a base. I've seen a couple that have the doors boarded up and a garage door on one end. This seems to be a quick way to have a safe base for guys like me that would probably take a year to build one from scratch :) Any of you have experience with this? Any downside I might be missing? Thanks in advance.

You need to get a safe/vault first, should be your main goal.

Then you can store stuff without being stolen.
You could get a truck first to store some high value weapons ...like m14's, sa58's, akm's, sniper rifles...etc
Look for high value items, gps, redbull, orange sherbit, mountain dews...etc

once you have 12 * 10oz gold bars you can get a safe.

Then you could loot or buy building stuff, buying is a easy way, as you just do the above, sell and buy what you need.
cinder blocks is the way to go.
When building use the environment to your advantage to use the least amount of build materials. As you have to maintain it (about 6 days) that can change from server to server.

What are these epoch servers?

Are they on the "official" server list? (by official I mean the ones on the select screen, I know they aren't technically official servers :P)

Does stuff transfer between the "Epoch" servers and regular ones?

 

Sorry if this is considered hijacking, I figured this didn't need another thread.

 

Thanks :)

Believe me, I'm no expert but this is what I know. Epoch is a mod to the Dayz mod. I get to the server list by using Dayz Commander. This is a program for servers and mods, updates etc. The Epoch mod allows for all kinds of changes to the original Dayz. Probably a good idea to Google it if you are interested because...I repeat...I'm no expert :blush:

      I'll Restarting the clan once again. It will be a little bit more laid back but I still want to try to make a small dedicated and serious team that is able to properly and efficiently work together.
      We will be playing on arma 2 Epoch/Overwatch servers so make sure you have your stuff ready.
      Only people with mics are accepted.
      hope to see you soon!
      If Arma 2 dies a switch to arma 3 or the standalone will be considered.

      Welcome to our Recruiting thread.
      Here we will let you know what join our clan involves and what we expect of you.
       
      First things first you need to know how to handle yourself in comms you need to be disciplined and need to know when to talk and what to talk about, seconds matter when your under fire. Learn the lingo and how others operate and our and your roles, adapt as deemed fit that benefits us the most.
       
      we may not always be victorious but if your serious and stick with us we will be on top at the end of the day. 
      Commitment one of our ground values,it is needed, we’re not asking you to play for 16 hours
      A day but make appearance on the team speak at least for more than a hour every three days, and let us know if you can’t attend. People that lack devotion have no place in our squad never the less for decency.
      if you think games should be play to win and not to just have fun then you’re in the right spot.
      You don’t need to have the skills only basic knowledge we can mold you to be a soldier but only if you are willing if you lack motivation and a urge to learn don’t post we only want commitment.
       
      We need you we don’t care where your from we have had members from all corners of the world. We only ask for commitment.
      We respect those who think for themselves, initiative is rewarded the more you play the more we can trust you only the trust worthy shall prevail if you going to betray think again.
       
      everything we do needs to be organised, and we need to be on top of our game we work as a team. We play for the clan and not for the individual.
      If you aren’t on top of your game let us know we need to be able to rely on you at all costs
       Because if you screw up it can cost everyone hours upon hours of work given into enemy hands.
      We work in unity and if you don’t believe in serious gameplay then we are not the clan for you.
      we play to  win, period.
       
      Of course winning isn’t always possible given circumstances however we try our best which is all we ask for nothing more
      we don’t expect you to kill a whole army on your own but at least try, in the end members who we can rely upon in and out of the game is all we want
      if you aren’t willing to cooperate and or fully committed please somewhere else because participation is paramount we need your cooperation for  you to be a efficient reliable
      Soldier
