Plot: The characters thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Their fate took a turn for the worse. The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides.

Description

The George Romero Riptide Mod was made in honor of George Romero, considered to be the "Father of Zombie Movies". This mod aims to replicate the behaviour of the Romero zombies, which means that zombies are mostly slow and can only be killed by destroying the brain. There are also other optional features included in this mod to satisfy the cravings of Dead Island players. The Walking Dead comics and tv series and even the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead are two very well loved horror entertainment that closely follow the Romero style of zombies. Since the mod also aims to give the players a survival horror experience, the fighting system has been customized and you also have other optional choices to suit your needs, like being able to play with modern fast zombies and other settings.

Just fixed a crashing bug due to the increased amount of zombies, special thanks to Jake Meyers for finding the bug. The Easy Installation Paks now use the default number of zombies for no crashes. Extra and More zombies might crash in Marik's Marina and Santa Maria.

DefaultZombies.rar - default zombie setting for no crashes.

ExtraZombies.rar - a few additional zombies in certain places, less likely to crash. May crash in Marik's Marina.

MoreZombies.rar - more people have become zombies in the island! Tourists and the locals alike haven't been able to escape the initial spread of the infection and now wander around the once beautiful island. There are more zombies hungry for your flesh than ever, be careful! May crash in Marik's Marina and Santa Maria.

Thanks everyone and have fun! :D

Added the Modern Zombie Fast No Taunting pack for someone's special request. It's simply the same as the normal Modern Zombie Fast types, except I removed their ability to do taunts this time around. Please check the New Features list above for the MediaFire link to it, have fun!

Thank you very much for your efforts. For the zombie density, that's the reason why I gave people different options to choose from. There is a default that has 10 for no crashes, and there's two higher ones that may crash in Marik's Marina and Santa Maria.

And yes, I've even tested the value of 11 yesterday before releasing the fix last night, even with just a value of 11, there is still a possibility of the game crashing. The other increased zombie options are there for people to play with just in case they know they're not going to Marik's Marina or Santa Maria.

As for the reason why I made it very hard for arms and legs to get dismembered, the way it works in Dead Island, when a zombie's arms or legs get chopped off, the zombie will die right away. For example, try cutting off a zombie's leg. What happens is that the zombie dies right away even if you don't destroy his head first. If the zombie loses both arms, the same thing happens, the zombie dies because it can't get up and it seems to be a hard coded function in the game's main programming.

So for now, yes, everything is there by design. Thanks for trying though :D

I just uploaded an updated version of V9 which should be available on this page once it's authorized. I repackaged the mod with my latest No HUD Riptide V3 and also included the Modern Fast Zombies No Taunt feature as an official feature. I also updated the readme file.

I'll post again when it's ready for download, thanks :D

Thank you for recognizing my George Romero mod from the original Dead Island!

For "new" things, that is something that simple scripting cannot really provide. For example, if I were to re-design Dead Island Riptide according to my own vision of a zombie apocalypse, I would include a system where you can create camps or strongholds to live in with the help of the survivors that you find. I'd call this "Survival Mode" where the more survivors you find, the better chances of surviving you'd have. There would be different types of survivors. There would be cooks, fighters, and builders. The cooks will be there to help you create better food and drinks that would keep everyone healthy and free from diseases. Fighters will be survivors who will go out with you in the jungle to fight zombies and help you scavenge for supplies. The builders will be the people who would be responsible for creating strong walls and structures for your camp to ensure that you will be able to sleep soundly at night without fear of being eaten by zombies.

Unfortunately, as much as I would love to introduce a ton of new features into Dead Island Riptide, my imagination is limited by the way Dead Island Riptide has been programmed. There is no way for me to create completely new modes of play in the Dead Island Riptide game engine. I cannot introduce new 3D models just by inserting them into the pre-bundled asset files of the game because they have some kind of protection or encryption which prevents me from doing so.

Still, with the limitations that modding for this game has, I believe that my work, the George Romero Survival Horror Edition, has managed to improve a lot over the original one for Dead Island 1, as well as introduced useful features and solutions that were not previously found in the first one.

In terms of modding the scripts found in the game, George Romero Survival Horror Edition has already attained the most that the game engine would allow it to :)
