This is what awaits you in DayZ Takistan
Welcome to Takistan: When you hear about this DayZ / Arma map for the first time, you will probably wonder what to expect. DayZ Takistan is one of the most varied maps that you as a PC player can load and explore.
In the south of the map there are high mountain ranges, followed to the north by flat hills, on the slopes of which villages, towns and religious places nestle. The further you hike towards the north end, the flatter Takistan becomes and green valleys abruptly merge into desert sand.
The setting: The setting of DayZ Takistan is based on the Middle East. Recognizable by the name “Takistan”, which is not only astonishingly similar to Pakistan, but also creates a clear reference to this region through the “-Stan” at the end. Fun fact: The country broadcast Stan means “home of / from” and was appended to the national name of the people who settled there at the time.
Back to the script: Of course there are also many military bases and various other bases of the occupiers in Takistan. As usual, you will find the best loot here in terms of firepower and personal protection.
But the highlight are of course freely accessible mosques, temples or government buildings, whose architecture you can only experience in DayZ Takistan. That is also the big keyword, because where most mod maps for the survival MMO use the buildings from Chernarus or Livonia, Takistan offers a completely different picture. It’s a great change for the eye.
How to Install & Play DayZ Takistan
Very simple: As with most mods, you can simply use the DZSA launcher to choose a server on which DayZ Takistan is running. If you click the play button here, the launcher will remind you that you have not installed certain mods. Click here on “continue” and bang bang, the launcher will install all required files directly from the Steam Shop.
It gets more difficult if you want to explore Takistan in single player. Here you have to download the modification directly from the workshop. You also need a DayZCommunityOfflineMode.ChernarusPlus file and simply rename it to “.Takistan” in the missions folder. You can find out how to install offline mode here.
