Anyone playing the Arma 3 mod: Altis Life?


Sep 10, 2001
Been watching some gameplay videos from various youtubers like JackFrags and Frankie and it looks like a lot of fun.

Basically they take the world Arma 3 is based in and turn it into almost like a Sims world where you are a Sim, at least thats how I can best describe it based on watching videos - I have not actually played it yet.

When you log in you can choose to be a civilian or a cop. The civilians get some starter cash they can take out of their ATM and earn salary. They can also make money doing various jobs in the world. They can buy clothes, a car, an ATV a gun but they also need to get licenses for these things. Civilians can go rogue too by dealing in drugs, robbing banks, kidnapping people for ransom and killing cops.

The cops are the counter the the rogue civilians and they get cop cars, guns and uniforms, can detain people and bring them to jail, or fine them with a ticket. You can check people's speed and try to pull them over for speeding.

Anyway, it looks like a lot of fun from the videos but I am just afraid it is like DayZ where its just a world full of tools who ruin the potential, and the youtuber's videos are showing brief moments of fun distilled from countless hours of less-than-fun gameplay.

One clip to demonstrate gameplay (most videos average half an hour length)

Go ahead and watch JAMALBUTTERWORTH on twitch. He streams it a lot.

From what I have seen, most people do actually role play. There are always douchebags in every game though and the server lag is pretty bad sometimes.
