The uncomfortable truth.

It’s no surprise that DayZ creator Dean “Rocket” Hall is a big fan of modding, but did come as a surprise to see just how much he attributed the success of ArmA and subsequently DayZ to the practice.
Speaking at PAX Prime last weekend, Hall said that it “If DICE wanted to kill Arma, all they’d need to do is release some modding tools tomorrow. Psh, gone.”
“It always really hurt me when Battlefield 2 was the end in terms of modding, so I’m pretty obviously supportive of the whole modding idea.”
Hall explained that striking that balance between security and stability and modding is something constantly on his mind.
“That’s the challenge that we’re trying to deal with with DayZ at the moment. How do we have the stability and security of an online community like Wargaming has, at the same time as support modding? I don’t have the answer for that.”
