Welcome To Exile Life

Oct. 4 2016

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our first of, hopefully many, dev blogs for Exile Life. We are very excited to show you what we have in store for the mod. As you can see in our features list, we have been working very hard to bring a unique, yet familiar, scenario to both our new life players and our veterans. We hope to provide an amazing experience that both immerse you into the gameplay and provide a reimagination of what a “life” server feels like.
We’ve been getting some questions about Exile Life, so let’s take some time to answer some of them.

What’s the difference between Exile Life and Altis Life?

In Altis Life, there is a line between good and evil. The cops are supposed to be good, and the civs are supposed to be evil. This is not the case in Exile Life. The boundary between good and evil is blurred. You are an inmate sent to a prison island for your crimes against humanity. Yes, you are expected to act within the guidelines of roleplay, but being “good” isn’t always...good. Even the guards, as that they are supposed to hold up the laws on the island, you will quickly find can and will be found to be corrupt and downright evil sometimes.
Altis Life gameplay is normally focused more on recreating “real life”. Exile Life gameplay is focused on the life of an Exiled inmate. Everyone on the island, including the guards, were exiled to this island. You won’t find speed cameras, guards patrolling the entire island, and you won’t be safe everywhere you go.

When is the Alpha?

We hope to announce the date of our very first Alpha testing of Exile Life here in the next few weeks, but until then, we still have a lot of things ahead of us. More details about Alpha and what that entails when we get closer to it. Short and sweet right? Don’t worry, it will be here soon™.

Can I play it right now?

Unfortunately, no. Exile Life is still in development and we do not have any public servers. Public testing of the mod will begin when the Alpha is released.

How can I host this mod on my own server?

The short answer is you can’t. The long answer is that we believe the experience of Exile Life will be degraded as more and more hosts come online. Due to “life” style servers requiring rules for Roleplay and each community having different beliefs on what those rules should be, the casual player would be screwed over. We believe that the only thing that should change across servers that you decide to play on should be the roleplay experience. The features, the mod, and rules should stay the same.

Where can I play it?

Throughout the Alpha, Beta, and full release, our host, The Altis Project will be providing the servers and administrative functions to run these servers. Servers will be located all over the world based on regional demand.

What are the requirements to play?

Two mods, and that’s it. You will just need the latest version of Exile Mod and the latest version of Exile Life Mod. You can find both of these mods on our website, or on A3 Launcher.

Where can I go to ask other questions?

You can ask all sorts of questions over at our facebook, twitter, discord, or even the Exile Life Mod Subform on Exile Mod forums. We will try to answer your question to the best of our abilities.
