Lightbulb [Proposal] Zombie Mini-Mod ;)

Well after some discussions with some respectable folks who will rename thankfully (for them) nameless i thought i should post this.

We have teams for building new factions for PR so why not a Mini-Mod to give people a break from sensible military what-if scenarios and detailed tactics.

Happy to act as creative director, if we get some devs to sign up to the idea.

Zombie-Mod for PR.

Various Options present themselves.

(yes i know there is such thing as "zombie mod already" - but we can do it better or enhance it, or whatever) (i'll leave the intellectual property issues to someone with more knowledge of it than I).

1. When you die, you spawn on the zombie team, we fix it so you can't switch back until the end of the round.
2. Zombies can only be killed with explosive fire, or headshots.
3. Non-zombies spawn as civilians, and have to find their weapons, some limited kits are available for "national guard" class.
4. We use the std PR maps, perhaps with an additional "USA Shopping-Mall" map for that Dawn of the Dead feel.
5. We make the zombies, a: slow or b: fast like the ones in DotD or "28 Days/Weeks Later".
6. We make the zombies players, with respawns on the spot if you don't get shot in a "kill" area, perhaps with "regeneration" for other damage, or just invulnerability.


Post your suggestions for "things you would like to see".

Sign up if you are a coder, and if the devs want to sign up to make this as simple or as complicated as they want, then who knows.


Aside from the ideas on speed, hitpoints etc.

WE NEED:

1 - Model 1-4 for zombies, to give us a variety of flavour for zombies, so they don't look uniform.
(the models should look varied, (i.e. not just like a zombie mec, perhaps use zombie china, zombie, brit, zombie mec to give a variety). We can mix them up or make them vaguely related to the PR faction that usually appears on the map. Either way. variety is good. I'm thinking 28 Days later style zombies with speed.

2 - 1 Dedicated zombie-mod map (Would like to take some of the USA-influenced maps from Armoured Fury (will need a senior PR dev to confirm legal status of this) to get a nice Shopping Mall Map. Alternatively we can always bring back "street" for this little Addon PR mod.

3 - A choice of bloody looking implements, clubs, sharp sticks, bloody knives, garden implements, cricket bat etc. OR we just have a nice punching animation instead of any weapon at all. (The former will give the bluefor faction a chance to use dropped zombie weapons.

4 - Some good code for zombies, that make them act realistically. (we shall need some assistance from - and some nice collaboration from PR_SP perhaps here).

Sounds interesting.

What do the zombies kill with though? Knives or what?

"Today's forecast calls for 30mm HE rain with a slight chance of hellfires"

"oh, they're fire and forget all right...they're fired then they forget where the target is"

Well generally I hear they kill by grabbing you and biting you over and over till you turn zombie...

Glad to hear people like the idea.

If you need inspiration..

YouTube - 28 Weeks Later - Running from the infected (Benny Hill) (28 Days later comedy)

YouTube - "down with the sickness" - richard cheese - Sickness (some bad words in here so don't watch if you are a young-un and not certified to see the dawn of the dead 2004 movie) (sing along - its karaoke time)

YouTube - 28 Weeks Later Sniper Barrage (28 Days Later snipers)

*cough*cough* not new the idea!

New Scenario night - ZOMBIES!! - Tactical Gamer

we already did this twice on the tacticalgamer private server with about 40players (more didnt come) and that was freaking hilarious, at the end we had one brit run accross the whole desert in basrah and a horde of 39 zombies running behind him!!

one of our fellow |TG| members made a nice vid:

I'd like a zombie mod.
Pr mechanics + zombies = win.
