Video: How a town is born in DayZ

Chernarus town planning.

Ah, Chernarus, with your epic vistas and your rolling green countryside. Sweet Chernarus, with your hamlets and towns, and with you adorable little town of Stary Sobor. Dear, dear Chernarus, with your mobs and zombies and stale stench of death.
