DayZ is one of the world’s most popular mods. Well, at least it was one of the world’s most popular mods. Today, DayZ is a standalone game available on Steam where players fight for survival in the fictional coastal region of Chernarus.
Lots of DayZ players play Minecraft and vice versa. That’s why one modder decided to create the DayZ Minealone Mod for Minecraft.
The DayZ Minealone Mod is only 10% complete so far but has ambitious goals for the future. So far, features are limited but if this mod achieves all its goals, then it’s going to be something special.
Here are all the features included in the DayZ Minealone Mod so far:
-New biomes and Chernarus-style environments
-Estimated release date of Summer 2014 where more items, textures, features, etc. will be added
The mod’s current downloadable files aren’t anything special – they’re just a rough beta version and some screenshots. You won’t be able to install the mod. However, you will be able to join the DayZ Minealone server for some exciting Minecraft Zombie PVP action.
In the future, the mod’s creator has an ambitious set of goals for the mod, including:
-Replicated DayZ guns, vehicles, armor, inventory, storage, and hundreds of other items
-Recreated survival system with food, drinks, medicine, hunger, thirst, blood, etc.
-Replicated PVP and PVE experience
-Replicated crafting system
-Replicated player stats
-Replicated DayZ music
-“Replicated DayZ Standalone EVERYTHING!!!!!”
These two modders are really passionate about both Minecraft and DayZ Standalone, so they seem like the perfect pair to tackle the challenge ahead of them. The mod’s description on Minecraft Forge is filled with descriptive items like “best zombie AI experience possible” and “most realistic gun mod in mod history.”
With that in mind, DayZ Minealone has set the bar pretty high. We’ll see if it lives up to its reputation in Summer 2014. Or, you can check out the mod by logging into the server today.

Wait for the Summer 2014 release or join the DayZ Minealone server.
Don’t try searching for DayZ Minealone under the server browser – you won’t find it. The server admin has listed the server under Dead Island, not DayZ, to indicate that the mod is still in its early stages.
