I just hope they pull the game far enough away from the open nature of the Arma engines, get some stability in and lock the hacks out!
He was an Arma 2 dev that made dayz in his spare time and then they asked him to do it at work, I guess it might have been a legal shitstorm if he had wanted to take the idea standalone without them. TBH I find it amazing how successful it has been considering how little he changed things, aside from like 4 zombie animations, gear spawns and the Hive he's really not done all that much (inc screaming at me).
Looking at other successful mods in the past they've always done a BIG overhaul of the models/mechanics where as most of Dayz development so far has been bug fixes for the engine and adjusting zombie behavior.
