Since the current rpg DayZ mod is popular for many gamers who even didnt know about the Arma 2 military simulation game and its possibilities, I thought people should know about that also other big rpg mods were released a while ago.
The mods are called: CityLife or Takistan Life and Takistan Life: Revolution
Actually these mod offers even deeper rpg gameplay than DayZ currently and is an interesting option, before the release of DayZ a lot of servers were available until some of them changed to DayZ. It has a persistant world and the character progress is saved on the server.
It seems like that Takistan Life is played a lot more currently than CityLife. Its just a different map with some minor gameplay changes.
* big open world
* Faction based i.e. CityLife: police/civilians/outlaws TakistanLife: UN soldiers, civilians/outlaws, Police
Takistan Life: Revolution: Police, Civilians/Outlaws, Insurgent, TLA (Insurg.&TLA are two military factions)
CityLife Videos (check out more of the videos on youtube, lots of different gameplay)
All the persons you see are actually players and not AI
Bridge Repair Job:
Examples of the possibilites for the police faction:
As a civilian you can get jobs to earn money, buying vehicles and gear in stuff, food and drink. There are also options to break the law and smuggling drugs, robbing banks/shops, killing other players, forming street gangs and terrorizing the public.
I think if you are into interesting roleplaying and you own Arma 2, you should try this mod. Its a lot of fun and the gameplay can be really deep.

CityLIfe has the most rules and restrictions so far, due DayZ less people are playing.
The alternative is URBAN LIFE: TAKISTAN LIFE REVOLUTION which has still a lot of people playing it. I will introduce TAKISTAN LIFE with the next post.

How well are the rules enforced? Most of these life servers seem to be rampant with the "good ole boys club" mentality and those in charge seem to just allow their friends to run rampant. I have been looking for one that is heavily moderated by a fair and impartial admin.

Currently people are playing more TAKISTAN LIFE instead of CityLife, its basically a similar gameplay with minor adjustements and on a different map.
This mod is basically almost the same like CityLife, but with less hardcore restrictions/laws and of course on a different map (Takistan). The jail time is not as long like on CityLife.
Currently, this mod is a lot more played than CityLife.
You dont need any mod installed, just join the server with your patched Arma game.
* similar to citylife, look at my starting post
* Factions: civilians/outlaws, UN Soldiers, Police
+ no need to download any mod - just join with the game, patched to latest version.
Most important, read the gameplay rules if you dont want to get kicked or banned and if you want to know how to play:
TAKISTAN LIFE: REVOLUTION
This modification has even more factions and looks interesting:
* Police, 2x military Factions which are in a fight, Civilians and Police. The two military factions are in a conflict.
This means certain faction will kill on sight.
The server is quiete filled with players.

Okay I'm pretty confused. Sorry for being a noob. So DayZ is the zombie mod? Is Arma 2 the original game? Very confused. Looks cool though, watched the bank robbery one.

Can anyone recommend more popular mods for Arma2? I don't have the game, but thinking about buying it for the mods.

Most mods you will find are for the core game, it is still a military fps/simulation. Best is to get the six updater so you always download the needed mods for the server you want to join or for you offline gaming expirience.
A.C.E 2 is definately one of the most famous ones, pushing the realism more.
PR - Project Reality did release an awesome mod only some weeks ago. Same team which introduced PR on Battlefield 2.
i44 a ww2 mod, but new standalone Iron Front Liberation 1944 will get released in 2-3 days and will be superior as a standalone game based on the Arma 2 engine.
There are excellent sound mods around: i.e. JSRS or Vop sounds
AI mods for better gameplay i.e. Zeus AI
There are loads of interesting mods, Vietnam War, different type of Islands, vehicle units, weapon modifications and so on....
Check this out, released mods for Arma 2/Arma Arrowhead/Arma 2 CO
