DayZ Elysium (Private Shard, First Person, Whitelist, Ruleset)

Recommended Posts

elysium-logo_6_white.png

 

Elysium is an Private Shard for DayZ Standalone (1st person). 

 

It allows you to shape your own story and encourages you to communicate with the players you meet. We strive towards building a healthy community, without limiting your way to approach the game. Therefor we ask you to agree on some limited rules. Also, you have to apply for the whitelist by registering on our website.

 

Our goal is to create one of the most atmospheric, exiting and entertaining DayZ servers. If the majority of players had a little more interest in approaching and communicating with the players they encounter, the DayZ experience will be even more exciting. That’s why we’d like to draw the attention of player who like a realistic encounter without getting shot everytime they meet someone. There will still be PVP, even KOS, since we don’t want to limit the players in their approach to the game. You can review all special features of our server on our website (see below).

 

We want to bring together an international mix of players and (play-)styles. People who know the community is the foundation of the server and you sometimes have to take a two steps back to bring the community one step ahead. We envision this server to be fun for the hardcore players seeking a new and exciting way to play DayZ as well as players who only have a limited time available to play DayZ and wish their limited time to be especially rewarding. With only a limited set of rules, we would like to encourage you to communicate with the people you meet, rather than enforcing a strict “roleplaying” policy.

Nice concept i wish you good luck!

 

My Question would be how you enforce all these rules?

 

 

EDIT:

 

For example

 

As a bandit, you are required to wear a balaclava, clown, gas mask or any other kind of face protection including motorcycle helmet. We strongly advise neutrals and heroes not to wear those items, because you may be shot on sight by others. If you die or lose your face-protection, you are not allowed to KOS until you find and put on a new one.

Hi VanValdenburg!

 

That's a good question. Honestly: We don't! As a fellow admin, you know we don't have the tools to enforce any rule. So we are relying on the good spirit of our community and hope they follow the rules.

Since it is not easy to get on the Elysium whitelist (people have to write a decent background story as well as they have to stand by for a quick interview via teamspeak) we hope being part of our community is valuable for our players. The 35 players I interviewed myself were all great people, who are sick of getting KOS'ed every five minutes. Even the bandits I spoke to think that way. 

 

That's why I am sure our community will prosper and people will stick to the rules. Of course there will be setbacks, but we will do our best to overcome them.

Hey Kassander thanks for the quick reply!

 

I appreciate your work and also the whole concept. It sounds really great on paper.

However i fear that this all will have no future because like you said - there is no way to enforce those rules.

 

Even with Kill Logs you can not enforce the majority of your rules and i see no way you could in the somewhat near future.

What you would need is the full scale of administration that is currently available for the DayZ MOD. And this will be most likely never available on Shards that are connected to the HIVE Database.

 

 

But your concept is so special and your registration process so complicated/struggling that it could work for a very small playerbase without administration.

 

 

Again i wish you good luck and we appreciate your work for the community!

I very much share your concerns. We had a lot of discussions about the ruleset in our admin team. We wanted to have as little rules as possible, while at the same time we wanted to overcome a few of the DayZ-SA limitations, like being unable to recognize other players. We decided to give it a try and see how it goes. If we fail, well... then at least we tried.

Due to the option to increase the player number, we open 20 more whitelist slots.

At the moment, we have 55 whitelisted players and a total of 83 reserved slots for the whitelist.

I am happy to announce that our players come from 17 different countries.

Since our age restriction (18+) is in effect, our average age is 25.

 

Want to know how to join?

DAYZ ELYSIUM STATUS REPORT DEC 2014

With this status report (Bohemia Style) we want to
• recap on the last two month
• invite you to our new community channels and forums
• and take a quick look at the things to come.

NEW ADMINS
Most of you using our teamspeak already know them, but nonetheless let me introduce our not-so-new admins Hrki and Lex. Both have stepped in while I didn’t have time to support the server and they have done a fantastic job since then. I would also like to thank Kruger, who helped us out for some time.

OUR PLAYERS
We have over a 150 players on the whitelist and altogether about 200 reserved slots (that includes the already whitelisted players).
Our players come from 32 different nations (say “Hi” to our Australian and New Zealand players).

Most players come from (TOP 5)
1. United Kingdom
2. Germany
3. USA
4. Sweden
5. Italy

NEW COMMUNTY CHANNELS
We have added new community channels. Apart from our
• Facebook Site: www.facebook.com/DayzOriginsElysium
• Website: www.dayzelysium.com
• Email: support@dayzelysium.com
• Twitter Account twitter.com/DayzElysium
• and Teamspeak 5.103.199.197

you can now find us on
• Steam steamcommunity.com/groups/dayzelysium
• and Gametracker www.gametracker.com/server_info/185.62.204.156:2702/

NEW FORUMS
The server has been running for a little less than two months now. We already have seen quite a lot. We held four events, had one complete character wipe. The server went down for nearly two days because I forgot to pay the bill. First conflicts arose. New and exciting hot spots were created. To improve communication between players, we have set up a new forum.
So let me invite you to contribute your ideas, stories, suggestions, events and hotspots, http://dayzelysium.com/bbforums/index.php. It uses the same login as the website.

RULESET REWORK
After the two months of the server being active we have gotten a lot of questions and suggestions about the ruleset. That’s why we decided to take this discussion to our new forums und hear what you have to say about our rules.
You will find all relevant topics at:
http://dayzelysium.com/bbforums/viewforum.php?f=16

EVENTS
Four events already took place in the last month and you can look forward to a little Christmas event next weekend. We will continue holding regular events in 2015 and we will further develop our ideas. Do you want to host your own events? Why don’t you join this forum and share your ideas and start recruiting people:
http://dayzelysium.com/bbforums/viewforum.php?f=9

HOTSPOTS
I would very much like to see more hotspots like “Ye olde hunter’s pub” or the market (coming soon) to be created. See this discussion if you have any ideas about that:
http://dayzelysium.com/bbforums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=17

THE FUTURE
We will further develop and customize our website and forums.
We will continuously add players to the whitelist until we have about 250 reserved slots and, at the end, about 200 players whitelisted. Our goal is to 30+ players online at prime time (approx. 18-22h CET). If you haven’t been to the interview yet, join our teamspeak and talk to me (Kassander) or Hrki or Lex.

Do you have any questions or comments? Feel free to join the forums or on Teamspeak .

Kind regards and happy holidays from the Dayz Elysium staff!!!

      WELCOME TO THE =UN= COMMUNITY (We will be running .63 experimental until the game goes stable)
      Dedicated Server Live! 
      - Multi-Clan server concept
      - First Person (Hardcore) Private-Hive
      - HUGE Trade Base
      - Packed at 60/60 Everyday!
      Game Server: =UN= Community Server  EXPERIMENTAL |First Person - Hardcore PVP | RP Encouraged | Private Hive | 
      We are a Multi Clan Community!
      Our public Discord can be found at:
      https://discord.gg/NWRFe8w
      Join our public Steam Group:
      http://steamcommunity.com/groups/dayz-factionz
      Group & server administrators may be reached through Discord
       
      This effort is hosted by the =Fish= Clan and =UN= Clan. We have united to create a First Person PVP server that will welcome all players and play styles, but focus on Clan Warfare, PVP and base building. The server already has several small groups committed to supporting its efforts. If you would like to join a clan, or form your own with the end goal to join The UN =FactionZ=, Come stop by our Discord while you play. DayZ feels like a whole new experience with the long-awaited Enfusion renderer and we look forward to greeting the old players returning from a break and the new.
      We will have only one connection to the central hive so there is no ghosting during PVP and no server hoppers that ruin the game’s loot economy by over-saturating the map with too many weapons, ammo, etc. We have a great group of people for both social play and PVP. Very solid community with Survivalists, Heroes, Bandits, Cannibals, KoSers, etc. This is a mature group of gamers who enjoy tactics, positive attitudes, and all aspects of DayZ.
      The server will host PVP events, as well as in-game challenges that will offer scenarios for clans, groups or individuals to accomplish, such as escort missions, king-of-the-hill scenarios, hostage situations, Prison Island jailbreaks, treasure hunts (PVP style). There is something for everyone who loves PVP-based DayZ.
      Our Discord is FREE can hold 1,000 players, and groups wanting to make the =UN= Community their home will be offered a Clan room on our Discord server. Clans that are interested may eventually be invited to have an admin on our server and also share in the cost. Currently, each of the founding groups has an admin, which will allow us to have some supervision present most of the day, everyday! Our players base has people from the USA and Europe!
      The =UN= Community has the following clans recruiting: (Clan leaders can be found in the =UN= Community Discord)
      https://discord.gg/NWRFe8w
      We host events like this:
