ZOMBIES

Ah great another zombie mod. We really just aren't that original.

Okay this is the scoop. Upon your travels to your vacation to to the beach, you manage to stream across an eerily silent town. It's almost like a ghost town. You arrive at a gas station to fill up your pickup.

CRASH

The windows of the adjacent building shatter! Guess what's behind em? A bunch of dirty rotten bloody mentally unstable cannibals we know as zombies! In a panic you pull the nozzle out of your gas tank, trying to unlock your door, fumbling with the keys desperately trying to escape. You get in, start the engine and floor it. Desperately seeking out shelter, you arrive at the town shopping mall where you can hide, get emergency supplies and build a safehouse. Once inside the doors lock shut behind you. Don't as me why. The only way to get out is to kill 1000 zombies. Again, don't ask me why.

To the left of you, is a sports store. You make a dash to the entrance. In front of you lies shelves. Golf Clubs, Baseball bats, Basketballs, Hockey Sticks, Bowling Balls, etc. Take your pick. They are ALL weapons. Across from the sports store is an internet cafe. Chairs, tables, laptops, computer monitors... ALL weapons.

Okay so if you can't tell already, the theme of this mod is to slay zombies with anything and everything you can get your hands on. No matter how deadly or unorthodox it is. Some weapons are much more handy than others. (Sports equipment is more durable and easy to use, Trash cans and cash registers are fatal one hit kills but have a long rate of fire because they are heavy, etc.) The player has a limited inventory, only being allowed to hold four weapons at a time. Weapons get 'destroyed' after being used long enough so that the player will have to go to new stores to pick up more weapons. There are well over 100 weapons in the entire mod. Among the 100+ weapons, less than 10 of them are firearms. Some more hard to find than others. Objects that are way too large for the player to lift, such as soda machines, crates, tables, etc. can also be used to move in front of doorways to create barricades and block the passage of zombies. The mod consists of 9 maps (or "plazas"), all plazas have more than one exit which allows the player to access parts of the mall in varying directions. If you leave a plaza, you have the option to turn around and go back to the plaza you were just in. The entire mall is free roam, there is no one-set path for you to take. Similar to Ravagers of Time, but a little more organized. The player thrives off of snagging food from food courts and various concession stands to replenish health. The player will have to kill as many zombies as humanly possible all at the expense of the wares scattered around the shopping mall.

Progress on this mod started about a year ago. It was not intended to be this involved at the time. I was working on it on my own and dropped it for a long period of time. I later had hope to revive it, and started working with Parasait and Arezey to make it 10x better than I initially had in mind. We were planning the scripts and gameplay abilities at the time. I made a bunch of sprites and weapons and such. Only to get bored of the work and delay working on it again.

Two days ago Arezey reminded me of the mod and we gained interest to continue working on it. LOTS of progress was made in the past two days. Currently our biggest hurtles are assigning varying properties to all the weapons and projectiles, making them behave the way they should in real life. We need to get our 9 maps done, and we need to write our scripts.

Currently, about 55% of the mod is done. Maps and scripts being a majority of what's left.

The mod team consists of Arezey, Parasait, and I.

We don't have a set release date, but I intend to get as much work done on this as soon as possible so as not to drop this project on hiatus again. We are eager to get this thing finished. If you have any questions concerning gameplay mechanics and scripts, feel free to ask, the three of us will be happy to explain.

This project has been going on for ages. It's about time we announced it ;)

Also I can tell you that this mod will almost completely work on advanced, intensive scripts, like interconnection of many maps as if it were one map! Also, a real-time day & night system will be implemented.

See it as some sort of "experimental" mod. And it's going to ROCK :D

I'm not even joking either. I spent hours just looking around in my basement and in local shopping centers looking for things that I can carry and potentially kill someone with if I tried hard enough. I'd post a screenshot or two but currently we have no maps besides some test maps for the weapons, which isn't really anything for show.

But yeah, because of the outrageous number of weapons at your disposal, replay value should be particularly high, which is what I'm aiming for.

Yeah I wasn't doing a good job keeping it all a secret, even though it was my intention not to announce it until it was somewhat near completion. But whatever, we're getting somewhere now.

A major hurtle I bumped into recently though, that I was not aware of before hand, was that objects are limited to 32 weapon mounts, which means currently the player cannot hold all the weapons I have planned for him. An email was send to James make us a patch that increases this number to something like 192 or 128.

Progress has reached about 60% now. there's still some hurtles to climb. We managed to find a workaround for our weapon mounts limit, so relying on James to patch Meteor 2 is no longer a necessity.

I added a few extra weapons to make use of some good sounds I found.

We're not even joking about the number of weapons. Check the screenshot if you've got the slightest doubt.

Trust me, We, of the zombies development team just want to play this thing as much as you guys do.

Looks good. If you uploaded the original background, I could make that lettering look a little less... MS-paint-y, if you like. Sorta like this (look at the top of the 'B').

@Kemikls

Initially I just made a few good weapons, then saved one of them 100 times as a different filename, then changed it's properties around one by one until every one is somewhat unique.

@Canuck
Yeah that background picture is pretty bad. It's from an actual photo I found on the internet, so it's not even mine. I had planned to do a better version from scratch, still intending to do that sillhuoette style of a line of zombies in the background.

I have about fifty out of the one hundred some weapons done. I got a lot of stuff done last night. I found a way to implement blood decals. When you kill zombies, a blood splat sprite gets planted on the ground near where the zombie died. This occurs randomly. The trick was to use make blood into a powerup that can't be picked up.

I do apologise for how lousy this map looks, this is just a mockup test map that I use to test the weapons in. The final maps will looks much, much better I can assure you. Notice the blood decal sprites around all the dead zombies. In case you are wondering, Those are escalators near the top. Those are propane tanks along that top left wall, a shopping cart below them, those green circle things are umbrellas, and that's a lawn mower in the middle where the star is. All of those things can be used as driveable weapons.

Tell us how much our mod sucks.

i love all of these 40oz-ish lil workaround tricks d(^^,)
well if you want to hear how much it sux too then the answer is just a bit. the mix of angle viewed terrain with the topdown objects is a bit weird but thats just a minor problem, still looks ok. ppl wont watch the gfx that much when they are in action, at least if the gameplay is awesome (which i assume to be true)

Hey, what was the workaround for the weapon-mounts limit? Cause if it makes life any simpler, you can usually overcome the limits for heath and speed and damage and that sort of stuff by just editing the file in notepad instead of in M2, it might work for the weapons as well.

@Canuck

Well, actually it doesn't work like that; It's entirely scripted.

What we infact do, is making a toolbar with buttons replacing the inventory. Whenever the player presses one of the buttons, the "weapon mode" is changed to the id of that weapon (so we can actually track which weapon he holds, allowing us to do more script trickies :p) en then take all his weapons (which is only one weapon) and then give him the weapon equivalent with the button he clicked.

We tried. It causes M2 to crash on the initial loading screen.

We're working on a Demo of this mod at the moment. Hopefully we can get it released by next week. If not, the following week. But it's coming soon. Demo will feature one map, endless zombies, and a fraction of all the available weapons you will be able to use in the final release of the mod.

Hello all again!

This mod sounds amazing.
As a solution to using heavy objects to block doorways (if you already haven't though one up) is to make them vehicles on a waypath. To stop them turning, simply make the object model itself a invisible (pink) sprite and make the sprite that looks like the desired object (eg top view of a drink-dispenser) a weapon mount.

Possibly I could help with the menu back.

You can edit your posts - the edit link is just missing. How to do it relies in changing the URL. In the URL there are post ids, and posting a new message is according to the URL like editing a post with an id -1. So you just need to change the -1 into the post you are editing. So just hit the "Quote" link, get the QuoteId= (which is your post ID), move the number from the &QuoteId= into ?PostId=, replacing the -1 there. Then just remove the &QuoteId= stub left and open the edited URL. You should see your own post now.

That's a good idea but I think it should be fixed so that the edit button will not miss.

Well then, will you please move everything here starting from DthDealer's "*attaching now*" post to the "bug related to the new moderating system" topic?

Made a possible candidate for a menuback. Did the ISOMETRIC view of the original M2 ZOMBIES map (now not hosted anywhere) in GMAX. Rest done in the GIMP.

When the forums are fixed I will attach the source.

NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Hmm, yea. I think it's so that the own menuback is the best, most likely people who you ask, (Or don't) will make the menuback wrong or not the way you want. But hey, if 40oz likes this I don't wanna complain, I think it's pretty nice anyway.

I'm pretty certain we'll have it before M3. I plan to spend a day or two checking to make sure all the weapon objects in the demo map give you the correct weapon, play around with the inventory, and ensure it's playability. The testing shouldn't take too long.

@40oz

Can I contact you on the irc some time? I'm currently stuck at the Z! demo script and I need your help (to tell me how it should work).


Oh and also...
@The impatient fans (^^,)

I've realised while designing the script, that if the demo script is ready then practically it won't take long to turn that into the final script (since most of the tech should already be in the demo).
Well, except day&night maybe, that *might* take a while if I didn't have enough lucky 7's :p
However, school is slowing it all down a lot (wow, 6'th year in secondary school really is a homework bomb x.X) but I promise I'll focus on it this weekend; I'll make the rest of my homework in advance tomorrow just for that. d(^^,)
In any case, it's coming! Slowly but surely!

Heh... Sorry but there will be no die sound fix, since I just discovered there is no such thing as OnObjectTypeDie. xP

Unless the player object id is always the same? Then I could make it an OnObjectDie.

No, the player ID is generated on map load.

Try making the player object on the level itself and use SC_SetPlayerObjectId on it in OnMapStart so that the ID is a known number.

You can't use void SC_OnObjectDeath( SC_GetPlayerObjectID() ) ! I've tried similar things before.

This wouldn't work in MP.
Cuz if you respawned, then you'd hafta get anther object. It'd be messy.

Also, I was somewhat zombie today.

Almost nothing will work in MP. For example, what am I going to do with the exit position based start position? :)
Really, this mod isn't designed for MP at all cause of the very big script dependance. And scripts were always a bit wonky in MP anyway :S

... I really need an onObjectTypeDie, otherwise I can't make scripted kill count and count the total zombies :S
The best thing we could do is ask James to implement that feature, I guess.

Meh, I don't think so. Cause you're simply not going to have time and room to pick up "kills" (especially on the later days in the game). (^^,)
Besides, it's kind of unlogic there is an onObjectTypeEnter, but no onObjectTypeDie anyway ~X( I think onObjectTypeDie is an absolutely required feature in the next version. (Also for future mods)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Make the zombies drop a powerup, and then make the powerup's sprite all magic pink and bigger than the screen (1024x1024 would be perfect). The second it is dropped it gets picked up by the player unless they killed the zombie at range.

WOOT! edit works!

My website: http://halestrom.net/darksleep@Occasionally you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.

Post #1: Awesome, great idea! That should do it d(^^,)

Step on it! Stop putting things before this project, or it will never finish. Same is happening to me with Carnage Galore. It starts to feel like you're slacking on the job, but oh well that's just me.

Bad News!

So you see, my laptop went defect; Problem with my screen. :(
That means basically that the Zombies! script will be delayed with 2-3 weeks (till my screen's fixed).
Sorry people.

Lol, DarkRain is over-positive. Well fine, but after it's fixed, no more delays.

Don't worry, I'm gonna try to get the draft and the script from my hard disk; My screen still kinda works but it's really undoable to work on my computer for a long while. But just putting files on my usb stick should do it.
I'll finish the script at my dad then, it doesn't need that much work anymore. The problem though, is that I will not be able to test it there. So as soon as it's ready I'll mail it to 40oz and discuss the errors & bugs on the irc whenever he's there.

Kinda like my idea of hacking the map by putting huge sprites of magic pink, that appear black in the map. ;) But hey, don't the powerup make a pickup sound?

Thanks 40oz and me_mantis

Best of all the sprite will be only 100 kb big. I just checked by making it in the GIMP.

ParaSait told me that he left the rest of the script to arezey. C,mon everyone would like it ready! Stop slacking off, and do your job. (If you're slacking off)

I am waiting impatiently for this mod too. But I'm sure Arezey does his best. Maybe he has been busy recently.
