The following policies apply to all paid custom mod orders.

  1. All mods can only be applied to one map type. For example: you cannot change the mods from Chernarus to Panthera or Taviana. This is because the mods must be redone for each map one by one.
  2. There is a 30% fee of the original cost of ALL mod orders to upgrade them to the newest version. For example upgrading from Epoch to This is because new server files are generated and we must manually transfer mod work.
  3. Customers can transfer mods between server locations like Dallas to Germany or Seattle. In order to do this, log into FTP and make a backup mission and server PBO from within your @DayZ_Epoch_Server addons and MPMissions folder.

Thorough explanation of why we must charge for these services:

It is not possible for anyone to instantly transfer custom DayZ server modifications from one version of Epoch to the new version. This is because installing the update generates a new server and mission file (PBO files). It is not possible for any DayZ server host to offer an instant transfer of custom mods from one update to the next because the mods must be redone one by one. Customers are allowed to transfer the mods over themselves, but this requires unpacking the new PBO's and manually inserting custom code from the old PBO's straight into the new ones. We cannot offer this service for free due to amount of time it takes to test and apply mods to a single game server.

Important disclaimer about the mod install service

This is strictly a paid install service for the time it takes to install the mods. We price according to the amount of time to install, with a minimum fee of $10.00 for any addon / mod. All credit for the creation of these mods goes to the developer.
