Enviroment & Effects
####################

Map
# [ADDED] #Over 800 ours of Map Editing - Some of the most creative ever for a DayZ Mod.
### Fuel Stations, fortified by the Military in an attempt to preserve the most valuble resource. (Currently 4 in total)
### The Prison, the most ammbitious project thus far. Over 9000 items in total. Huge rewards, Huge risk!
### The Military Stronghold - The last attempt by UN Forces to stem the infection, their last outpost remains.
### Chernogorsk re-designed.
### Bolota Airfield - re-designed.
### New Town, West of Kamenka Village
### Hidden Areas in Towns and Cities containing Survivor Strongholds
### Many interior items have been added to builings/areas across the map, to aid the ability to "Search" (See below)
### "Cleansing Centre" - Buildings created by the Military when the infection took hold to detain and treat the infected. These buildings contain the key to
curing the infection. They also contain some amazing loot!

Features & Actions
##################
# [ADDED] # New Search/Harvest Function allow players to also hunt around more for equipment and loot, rather than it just lying on the floor (See below)
## "Search" Action - Players can interact with items in the worls to "search" the contents. These items have been placed inside/near
buildings and include: Wardrobes, Desks, Medical Cabinets, Cardbord Boxes, Vending Machines, Gun Cabinets, Ammo Crates & More.

# [ADDED] # New "Harvest" Action - Survivors attempted to become self seficent, growing crops etc... Greenhouses are "Harvestable" (Placed in most towns.)
6 new food types Harvestable from Greenhouses - All new 3D Models for Potato, Pumpkin, Onion, Turnip, Carrot & Parsnip. (All Cookable)
## Mouldy Food, Opium & Hemp can also be Harvested, These have a purpose for creating items!
### Which crop you get is random, working on a new system for this but for now, it works perfectly well.

# [ADDED] # Humanity Based Skin System. Some Lootable skins are humanity based, when putting on a new set of clothes, the outcome differs depending on Humanity.
NOTE : A good ammount of skins that are NOT humanity based and can be worn by anyone have been introduced also. Final skin choices have NOT been made.

# [ADDED] # Aibility to Create antibiotics, from Mouldy Pumpkin and Opium at Cleansing Centres. Antibiotics Currently still spawn in Hospitals. We are reviewing this depending on availability
of items requires to create them.

# [ADDED] # 7 Brand new Skins, Survivor Skin plus 6 Other Lootable "Local Clothing". All customised for effect.

# [ADDED] # Crafting System - Requires a Nearby Tool Chest, located at various points on the map. Huge craftable item list which is ever expanding.

# [ADDED] # Animated Heli Crashes. 2 Types of Model, Russian MI17 and BAF Chinook HC4. Each Helicopter flies to Pre Crash Waypoint, then To Crash point, explodes, crashes and creates heli crash.
## Russian and Western Loot Tables for relavent Model. Loot radius increased. Obviously the Loot Tables are completely new.

# [ADDED] # Depleatable Fuel System - Fuel is rare in the Future, take care of it!

# [ADDED] # Gut & Ignite Human - Show the ultimate disrespect - Gut your opponent and then set them on fire.

# [ADDED] # Remove clothes from dead Players, regardless of What Humanity dead player has, you get his skin. Your ability to wear it may be restriced however.

# [ADDED] # Vehicle Salvage - Removing parts contains a chance to break considering damage level.

# [ADDED] # Weapons - 100+ weapons, to add variety. Well balanced spawns will be the key. Weapons spawn relative to what they are, russian weapons in the towns, for instance.
## Added weapons have much better animations, recoil, sound etc than the standard ones. Some obviously have been used in other mods, but many are new.

# [ADDED] # Zombies - HazMat, Prison Inmate & Prison Guard

# [ADDED] # Vehicles - Beta Vehicles include the 4 Door Crew Cab Hilux in various colours and specs. Many other vehicles to come, but I have not finished the Skins yet.

# [ADDED] # All new buildings spawn loot, locations are all custom. Some issues with location may occur, report issues pelase :)

Feature Changes and Adjustments
###############################
# [REMOVED] # Helicopters Removed. They break immersion and are hugely overpowered. But in a future update you will be able to CREATE a single seat heli for transport.

# [REMOVED] # All Arma 2/DayZ Weapons Removed. They are all rubbish :)

# [ADJUSTED] # Food and drink "cans" are much more rare, as expected, but this is balenced by the ability to Harvest food from overgrown vegetable patches.

# [ADJUSTED] # Medical Loot is again, more rare. Craftable Items make up for this.

# [ADJUSTED] # Trash loot levels increased. To Aid Crafting.

NOTE REGARDING LOOT SYSTEM:
###########################
The Loot system has edited, enabling me to spawn different loot tables inside the same building, depending on location.
This is VERY MUCH a work in progress, with so many new weapons and items, balancing the loot tables is likely to be an ongoing issue, please comment on how you find it to be for you.

Because of the large number of new buildings, different tables and new types of loot pile, you may find things a bit wierd, for instance....
You go into a building and find a Russian SMG, some rounds, a Jerry can. Then you go into the same buliding further inland, it will NOT spawn the same loot Table. You may find Industrial Parts
or such like. This is not a problem, and is another way we have tried to keep people guessing :D

KNOWN ISSUES
############

A few issues already exist, for the most part these are minor things I have not got round to changing yet. All of these are on my to do list and will be sorted for release

## Chinook Heli Crash Spawns an Mi8 Model after crashing.
## New Food Types have a "Unlabeled can" appearance in inventory, this is by design as we have not finished the images for inventory yet.
## Zombies get stuck in the prison, there stupid. Will work on it, but not much I can do I don't think.

(Rossymond) Thanks to everyone involved....
Amrak, map design and generally awesome guy.
Cyber, Web design and internet type stuff!
My wife, for putting up with my obsession even with a new country, new house and 2 young kids.
Everyone else involved...thanks :)

This sounds really interesting, maybe a few screenshots and other previews would be nice, but from the feature list it sounds interesting.
I especially love the farming/harvesting, that's going to add a lot of variety, if you combine that with a proper loot table then I believe this mod may be very successful, I'd love to try out the beta! :)

I am liking the idea of this... overall a nice collaboration with some neat new features.

Can I ask how this will be distributed? Server and Client files for open download or on request? Leased to certain providers?
What Dayz its based upon.
What sort of DB Structure will it run.
Will you have a support function for the mod. I.e Forums or teamspeak?

Also.. will it require re-download of Chernaurs making it massive large to download?

Thanks in advance.

The main feature with this mod is that the vast majority of the additions will be server side. It will be run on a dedicated server and I think the guys have got the website in production already. The initial beta will be closed invite only l. For your other questions I do not know I shall ask rossymond.
