Hello and welcome to the Dusty Roads Announcement!
Dusty Roads is a modification made for Arma 3.
It's set in the mid-1870's west expansion territories of the United States.
While it is roleplay mod, we're going for something different then
the normal life roleplay we're all used to seeing in Arma.
Dusty Roads as a mod will be more inspired by some popular MMO's
(such as Black Desert Online and The Division).
However, we still want to include the dynamic and interactive world
that life roleplay has offered the community to date.
We also want to incorporate many Survival game elements as a subset to make
the world a little bit more interesting and difficult for players.
So it's really the mixture of these that we believe will offer up something
more unique to Arma even more so than the Wild West setting.
So what are some features that we're aiming for?
This is a popular thing in both life roleplay and MMO style games.
This mod will reward players who work hard in certain aspects
of the game by giving them better buffs and a higher RNG chance
of successfully finding rare items.
One twist, however. Over time your life skills will degenerate which will
naturally send players focusing more towards certain skills/trades.
In theory, this will buff the player marketplace.
Weapons and Gear
Weapons will continue to feel like they do currently in Arma
but with on caveat.
Weapons will have tiers which will impact their base level
accuracy and damage per hit.
Defensive gear will also have impact in these areas.
All weapons and gear will be upgrade-able by players
with an RNG chance of success.
MMO inspired gear scores will matter.
Survival and Camping
Life on the frontier is hard. The further players venture off the
pathways the harder survival gets.
AI bandits may attack you.
Basic necessities such as food and water will be vital.
Make sure you clean your water because the last thing you
want is to contract disease.
Sleep deprivation can you make anyone lose their mind.
Pitching tents, starting fires, and more will be an absolute
necessity for life on the frontier.
Of course, there are greater rewards to those who can
survive the harsh elements.
Travel and Terrain
Maps in Arma can already be quite expansive as they are.
When you remove vehicles and replace them with
walking, horseback, and covered wagons?
The world can seem never ending.
We're custom making a terrain that will fit our mod exactly
the way that we need it. The environment will change
overtime reflecting the desires of the players.
These are just some of the many features we're working on
implementing in Dusty Roads.
We will expand detail on them further as well as detail more in future updates.
For now, we've included some screenshots of the current progress thus far.

There are multiple ways that you can help the project.
We project leaders have our talents in specific areas of development
and we're not afraid to acknowlege our weaknesses.
Rather than forcing ourselves to produce everything
in those areas, we've chosen to find people
that can produce high quality content.
In a perfect world full of sunshine and butterflies we could produce and
release this mod without spending a dime. However, you
get what you pay for.
Money allows us to buy more/better quality assets, produce top notch animations,
provide more in game content, and more.
If you have a skill in scripting, graphic design, modeling,
animating, web design, or anything else related to the project we're always
looking to expand our team.
A larger team will enable us to provide a better end product in
a shorter timeline.
If you're interested in helping out, please reach out to either of the project leaders.
