    DayZ / Arma server Q

    So I forgot who told me that, but i am confused here regarding the servers for arma.

    If we have a server. Is our server is part of a large pool of servers, that actually connected to a big server that runs all the area in DayZ.

    What I mean is would we see in the game only people who joined our server, or people who joined other server?

    Its probably just me

    you will only see people who connect to your server in your server. you server is connected to a main server called the hive. all the information from all servers gets sent to the hive. you play on server x, have certain gear on your body, and leave server x. you can join server y and you will have the same gear you had in server x and you will spawn in the same location as server x, but on server y.

    if you had a vehicle or a tent in server x, you will not have the vehicle or tent in server y. everything else is transferred.

    so basically a server owner can put shit load of stuff on their server. play it get all the stuff and still benefit from better stuff. so thats why there are like 4K servers.

    server owners are not allowed to change anything. the only option they have is server time, sever location, crosshair on/off, 3rd person on/off, normal, veteran, expert mode, so on. basic things. they can not control how many guns spawn or how many vehicles spawn.

    private hives, on the other hand, DO have the ability to manage all the other stuff. but they are private hives, meaning there is only 1 server with that information. you can not jump from server to server if you have gear on the private hive. that gear stays on that hive only. it is not connected to the main official hive.
