Are you having Arma 2 Wasteland nostalgia? Look no further :)
I often find myself missing the charm of Arma 2, but sadly the playerbase no longer exists. Don't get me wrong - the Arma 3 engine was an amazing upgrade - but I prefer the realistic setting of Arma 2 over the futuristic setting of Arma 3.

And so, after countless days putting my social life on hold, it is done - I have ported A3Wasteland v1.4d to Utes using CUP assets. If you or your friends miss the good old days of Arma 2, this is probably exactly what you're looking for.

Check out some screenshots here.

-No paid Arma 3 DLC required.
-All Arma 3 items have been replaced with Arma 2 items (aside from some necessities like first aid kits, rebreather, etc.)
-$100/pistol start. Players need to work for their items by getting kills and completing missions.
-Custom buildings (castle, hotel, villa...) have been placed around the island for variation.
-extDB3 persistence so your base-building lasts until server wipe.

I have a test server up and running now. I'm in the bug testing stage this week. Feel free to log on and reply to this thread with any feedback/suggestions. I'm not looking for donations, just a fun group of people to experience this with!

If there is enough interest, I might organize a small event in the future to fill the server for a weekend. The nice thing about Utes is that you don't need more than ~20 people to have a good time.
