DayZ Creator Dean Hall: Implementation of Vehicles “In Progress,” Small Aircraft a Possibility
DayZ, the popular zombie survival mod for ARMA 2 could see the implementation of an array vehicles, including small aircraft and helicopters. The game’s creator, Dean Hall, addressed these questions in a recent Reddit AMA.
“Vehicles will be done based on the architecture we are doing for items/weapons now (i.e. attachments). So it’s in progress really,” Mr. Hall explained to one redditor, “We are replacing the physics system for items (throwing, etc…) and this new middleware will be used for vehicles also.” When asked specifically about helicopters and aircraft, Mr. Hall iterated that, “helicopters and small aircraft will be important. But they should be very complex to maintain.”
DayZ was developed by Bohemia Interactive and recently entered its open-Alpha phase on December 16th, 2013.
