Installing and Loading Mods for DUG


5 years ago

We use mods to tweak and enhance the hardcore experience on our server

DayzUnderground is using a few tasteful, immersive mods to enhance the hardcore experience playing on our community server, which are required to be installed and loaded by every player.

Our overall goal when selecting or creating our own mods is providing a unique experience that stays true to DayZ’s hardcore vision.

Click here for the current modlist.

Below is a tutorial for downloading and using the right mods on our server.

You can join our modded server using the official DayZ Launcher. This requires you to be logged into Steam. Make sure you are running the latest DayZ stable patch.

If you are having issues connecting, please let us know on our public Discord, we will be happy to help you!

How to Download and load Mods via the official DayZ Launcher

You will download this Mod Collection from the Steam Workshop.

Open your Steam client and select DayZ in your library. Next, open DayZ’s Workshop. In the upper menu, click on “Browse” and select “Collections”.  Next, search for “DayzUnderground” in the upper right search field. This should show you our mod collection. When you see the collection, you will choose Subscribe To All and the mods will all begin downloading.

Loading the Right Mods

After the downloads have finished, please launch Bohemia Interactive’s DayZ Launcher to see if they are installed; you will also use this to launch your game and join the server!

The official DayZ Launcher can be found when you launch DayZ through Steam. You will be given the option between “Play DayZ” and “Run DayZ Launcher.” Pick “Run DayZ Launcher”.

This should then open the launcher.

Navigate to your MODS Category and you will see a list of mods that are either currently downloading/updating or are already installed.

You will need to check the mods from our modlist and make sure they are in your Loaded Mods Section.

Make sure to only load the mods specified in our modlist and none other when connecting to our server.

Extra Things You Need To Do

Navigate to your Parameters Category and make sure you are on the FAVORITES tab.

You will see a couple of options for you to mess with:

  • Force Window Mode (Enable/Disable)
  • Profile Name (Enable/Disable): __________

Also be sure to put your name or you will be kicked from the server if your name is Survivor.

Time To Join Our Server

It’s time to press play and make sure it works.

If all is correct your main menu screen should look like this (note the DUG logo in the top left).

Navigate to Change Server, choose the Community tab and in your filters make sure DayzUnderground is the name you use when searching for our server in the filters.

If you have done all the steps correctly you will be able to join our server!

If you are having issues please let us know through our public Discord or on our private Reddit Forum, we will be happy to help you.

Enjoy your time!
