What is OUTBREAK?
Outbreak is a short film directed by Yeltsin Penado. Yeltsin has curated a series of modifications for the survival roleplaying video game - DayZ. Outbreak utilizes a server and allows players to join this experience through the DZSA launcher.
This is an online mutliplayer experience: there are people - in real time - interacting with each other, building homes, eating, sitting, and surviving.
These players can choose to Cooperate or battle each other. They can choose to build a base and inhabit the sprawling desert map of TakistanPlus
What Is a MOD?
A mod is an alteration by players or fans of a video game that changes one or more aspects of a video game, such as how it looks or behaves. Mods may range from small changes and tweaks to complete overhauls, and can extend the replay value and interest of the game.
Players Join Outbreak and are tracked as they progress on their journey through the landscape. Admin commands and configuration files are used to plot points and follow players for filming.
"I have developed a program that searches configuration files and server logs for specific players that have participated. Members of this experience stockpile and build in interesting places.
I have also employed the use of Post-Processing software (Reshade) to produce high resolution images for documentation. This allows me to manually increase the fidelity of the game for production."
