Hello and welcome to the Dusty Roads Announcement!       Howdy Partners,   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?   Life Skills 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.   Summary 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.   If you have any questions or want to help out with the project Please reach out to us:   http://www.dustyroadsrpg.com/community/index.php?members/sync0s.95/ http://www.dustyroadsrpg.com/community/index.php?members/corbinnator.6/   Stay tuned for more!     Weapons   Clothing

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.   Development 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.   http://www.dustyroadsrpg.com/community/index.php?members/sync0s.95/ http://www.dustyroadsrpg.com/community/index.php?members/corbinnator.6/         Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/8ftj8aR Website: http://www.dustyroadsrpg.com/ Steam Group: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/DustyRoadsRPG sync0s Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/sync0s12345/ Corbinnators Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198058455724/
