This mod is a great bit of fun for driving the boat, turning the old rickety boat into a speed boat! The engine has been upgraded and the boost has had a nitrous make over with a much better rudder for steering.
Zombies are crazies!! This mod adds very fast and dangerous zombies like those from world war Z or 28 days later.
Kessler's Experiment is a mod that adds new lootable items and new craftable items to Dead Island Riptide. The survivors can make use of the mutagen chemical found in the old tunnels of Palanai to empower themselves and overcome the hoards of undead that plague the island.
We never thought this was possible due to the amount of glowing water... but after many hours of work. I'm in the position to give you... A rotating day and night cycle for Henderson Town Mod.
Zombies are now fast, powerful and extremely dangerous, they move fast and they will swarm the player and beat them to death quickly if they are not careful. The player has been given a small amount of health regeneration, which helps between battles, but it won't save you if you get swarmed.
We will be back in a few days with the top three winners for the competition. Best of luck to all those involved! Enjoy playing these mods, tell us your favorites in the comments.
