(pm if you are hosting and want to be added to this list)

Supports PvE, PvP, and Single Player!

known issues: It sometimes takes time for the "grab money" or "drill safe" or other actions to show up on items in the game (for the variables to propogate over the network).
sometimes bank/last position/gang hideouts get loaded incorrectly. Usually reconnecting fixes this.


Also check my other mod, ARMA MOBA, for more ARMA 3 arcade-style gameplay!

The mod requires @INIDBI mod for servers to support persistent objects (money, hideouts, gear saves) : http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?167927-iniDBI-Save-and-Load-data-to-the-server-or-your-local-computer-without-databases!


Payday Mod is designed to be a lot of things, but takes inspiration from Civ Life Mod for ARMA, Payday: The Heist and a few things from Grand Theft Auto among other games.

The objective is to deliver and fun and ‘arcadey’ experience within the ARMA 3 engine with character classes and a large economy system. Buy weapon upgrade, cosmetics, items like GPS and range finders, weapons, sensors, even full gang villa hideouts!

Money

Heisters (RED TEAM) can earn money from jobs (Bank, Import/Export, House Robbery, Gas Station, Warehouse, etc.). Money is also earned passively if you have less than 10,000 in your possession.

Money can either be stored in the bank, on your person, or on the ground. Bankers can transfer money to and from your account, and the “Y†button brings up the ability to a specific amount on the ground, which you could use to pay your crew, or, alternatively, bait your target into the open with the lure of free cash.

Items can be pawned or otherwise sold such as weapons, cars, and special bonus items like laptops, cameras and cell phones, or drugs can be sold either at pawn shops or shady markets. Gold can be sold for a good price at the Offshore Bankers.

Many items, upgrades, weapons, vehicles, intelligence can acquired for money, even services like healing, re-painting a vehicle or repairing a vehicle can be bought. Explore the island to see what’s available!

Police

Police are a playable side in Payday mod. Guards are friendly and police can assist if alarms get tripped. Alternatively police can intercept drug runners, assist downed helo pilots or assist stranded convoys, amonst other things, to get money.

Police generally get a bonus on their next paycheck rather than instant cash, so you can't retire just yet!

Police Features

Stun guns - can be purchased, which will incapacitate an enemy. Enemies can be arrested for bonus.

Flashbangs - can be used to disorient without the risk of killing civilians.

Attack dogs - can be also be bought, which can also incapacitate an enemy.

Spike strips - can take out the tires of vehicles!

Deployable roadblocks - each class can make its own part to form a checkpoint!


Guards

Guards provide security for the missions. The funny thing about a guard is when you’re dressed like a civilian and don’t have a gun, he thinks you’re a civilian! If you get too close, however, they might see that assault rifle poking out from your jacket!

Civilians

Civilians can alert guards if they somehow notice you have a weapon. They also can be robbed, or even taken hostage! Beware, though, some civilians may try to call the police, or even offer armed resistance!


Infamy

The higher your body count the higher the consequences. Police, SWAT Teams and even Special Forces will try to hunt you down if you are a big enough threat. Police will also be rewarded for eliminating or arresting high value threats accordingly.


Missions

There are many different mission types with quite a range of difficulty. The larger missions are nearly impossible without a disciplined crew! Or at least a bit of good luck.

4-Stores: Finds the safes located in one of the stores and drill it. Then collect the loot.

Gas Station: A few guards guard a few safes. What could go wrong?

Warehouse: A few more guards guarding a few more safes. Sometimes you just get a crate of laptops or something so you need to go to a pawnshop to get rid of it.

Housecall: Sometimes you can find a juicy loot stash in some poor saps’ house. But it’s a lot easier if you pay one of the Shady guys at the Shady Shops a few bucks to let you know where to look.

Supply Raid: If you’re hard up for supplies you can always head down to the local military base and raid them. It’s probably only 15 or so commandos you’d have to kill, then find the air supply codes on their dead corpse, then look all through the complex to find the radio, then use it to call in the actual supply drop, and hope the reinforcements don’t massacre everyone. But who knows? It could work.

Bank: This is what you came for, isn’t it? High risk and high reward would be a good way to put it.

High-Security Bank: You'd almost have to be nuts to try this. Or at least have an experienced crew...

Police and Heister Missionsp: Generally police should return any stolen goods or vehicles to the HQ. Command would appreciate it.

Drug Intercept: Everyone knows the drugs are comming in to Altis by boat. What isnt known is exactly what beaches and and tactics these dealers are using.

Drug Warehouse: Not your typical guards, these guys are professional low-lifes. Safes are guarenteed to be full of drugs, which can be sold at shady shops. Cops are welcome to raid these guys as well.

Convoy Breakdown: Some genius in Logistics Company made sure we only had enough gas to get from Point A to Point B, the only problem is we're stuck at Point C. Get the convoy back to the police base, or the heisters could blow it up and steal the gold inside!

Chopper Crash: An MH-9 went down, but some of the crew is still alive! Recover the downed crew, and either capture or destroy the chopper!

Shops and Buildings

Explore to find all the shop types but here are the basics:

Weapon Shop: Here you can buy some basic weapons like pistols to perform your very first heist. Isn’t that cuuuutttteeeee?

Heavy Weapon: Some people don’t think you should be able to buy fully automatic weapons, grenade launchers and plastic explosives for cash. But those people are wrong.

Clothing shops let you change your pants. ‘Cause you should do that once in a while, you know.

Item shops have things like binoclears and GPS

Hat shops exist. Look like a terrorist in your shemag!

Boat shops can provide an escape route the police might not be looking for or an afternoon of entertainment with cooler of cold beverages.

Armory: Body armor can be purchased at the armor stores. As they say sometimes Class IV body armor really is the difference between life and death.

Air Shops are great if you have a bunch of money and a helicopter gunship equipped with dual miniguns makes a great impression on the in-laws.

Real Estate also known as gang hideouts, can be purchased here

Shady Shops buy drugs and electronics. If you havetoo much money you can also try gambling

Pawn Shops will purchase guns, gold and electronics. That guy didn’t ask any questions either now that I think about it.

Buildings are interactive indicated by the flags at gas stations and hospitals, and there are many stores around the island.

Gas stations can repair, refuel and repaint vehicles for cash. You can also buy a vehicle from here if you get lost. For some reason gas is free in the future, or maybe I’ve just been stealing it all these years.

Hospitals treat injuries for money.

Offshore Banks offer good prices on gold.

Import-Export Garage has repo missions available, which require you to retrieve a specific model of civilian vehicle. You can also sell vehicles for scrap.

Nice fixes and updates. Thanks mate.

I'm using bCombat as an AI improver and some missions are challenging :)

Played it, and some thoughts.

You should probably make the first mission always be in the town you are in. It kinda sucks the fun out of robbing people when the first thing you need to do is drive 2 or 3 km, then dying and doing that all over again.

The player should probably start with all of their money in their pocket. These people rob banks... do you think they would trust the bank with their money?

Ver 1.27 - Bug fix to hit missions --- you now receive 25,000 to your bank when you complete a hit mission given to you from the shady shops! The missions are only on other players that have killed at least one other! Also updated player descriptions for the multiplayer lobby (bluefor = police; redfor = heisters). Added civilian/guard body deletion which should help late game fps

I think my community might be able to assist, we are a PMC based communty, so that cashflow idea REALLY plays well into our core focus.

Shoot me a PM if you are still looking.

Cheers.

(Cant wait to give this a shake later today ;) )
