A lot of people ask me about installing DaiZy (DayZ single player) for maps other than Chernarus. Well, the good news is that we've got a forum where there are lots of different versions of Daizy and they support pretty much every map. Whether you would like to play on Taviana, Lingor, Namalsk, Wasteland, Takistan, Isla Duala, Celle, Zargabad or any others, we've got you covered.
The standard DaiZy only covers Chernarus and seeks to simulate online play from official public hive servers. It's pretty good, but our forum versions have improved features that add to the gameplay. Some of them have improved AI handling, others add extra building, some have self bloodbagging (so you can heal yourself more easily), some let you build your own base and so on.
These can all be found on our forum in the "Unofficial DaiZy Releases" section. Actually, I don't know why I call them unofficial, but that's just what I called that section back when I had no idea how popular this would be.
In the video at the top, I discuss how to install additional maps and other versions. The basic process is the same in all cases, although it's Taviana I cover in the video. It goes like this:
- Use DayZ Commander to download a map
- Make a single player folder - eg @TavianaSP
- Copy the contents of the @DayZ folder into your single player folder
- Copy the map files into that folder too, over-writing as you go
- Copy our files into that same folder, over-writing as you go
- Make a new shortcut that includes -mod=@TavianaSP (or whatever you called it)
I can't provide full support for every mod on our forum (I don't have time to try every single version of each one), but I will try to help if you have any problems. It's generally best to check our forums in case someone else has had the same problem. That and the author is probably better placed to tell you what's wrong. But I will help where I can.
