My name is Dec Doyle. I'm currently the Lead Programmer over at Monochrome LLC working on our first release title Contagion, coming 2013. Most people know me for my first initial projects The Mortewood Plaza (On-Hold Until 2014) and 1187.
I'm assuming you're talking about my PC?
I have water cooling, you honestly think I wouldn't take that into account? :S
Who cares? Shotgun vs. Zombie face is all that matters. :D
Haha nice idea!
And thanks mate. :D
I do believe it is Evil Dead though I have never played COD.
Awesome stuff, yeah im a big fan of COF myself.
No need to try shoot me down because I am not as far along the modding process as them. It's called upcoming for a reason!
I do get what you mean though. Thanks!
EDIT: Yeah well I was shocked myself but as I said people can clearly see that I can deliver, give me time and I will get this mod up to the standards that I want it to have! :D
Well it kinda shows that you haven't read much about my mod. Honestly mate what with it being about 19% done( maybe less ), only has a one man team I can only create an show so much of the mod when I have it.
Even the video explains that I have co-op and a huge singleplayer planned that focuses on storyline, game-play and originality in the content of the mod.
I think people basically saw past the low and have seen that I will eventually get to a stage where it looks a lot better than it does now.
At the moment it doesn't look like the most amazing thing, but time is all I need to prove people otherwise.
Hope you take a look, thanks! :)
So epic. :D
Haha thanks mate.
Never heard of them games before, I remember my inspiration: Theconquerer.files.wordpress.com
Old but superb, Age of Empires 2 was... Immense.
Played it recently and loved the easy to understand simple little health bar. It was a MUST addition to mortewood!
Haha yeah there is a game in mind when I think of this simple style, can'y remember but I like it.
Been busy the last few weeks, no time for modding or updates, shame it came at the worst time during MOTY.
Hehe good good.
Cool thanks mate!
Hell yeah! :D
Merry Christmassss!! :)
SUPERB scene handling and astonishing voice acting.
Like most people the problem was the bat, not sure how you did not realise that before uploading the video but whatever.
Also the font and titles don't look nice with the glow. That is just my opinion so don't think anything of it haha.
Either way this looks brilliant, cant wait to see what else you have to offer! :)
ALOT of blood, I promise you that!
Painful. Kinda shows the power of these vehicles so hopefully this will be awesome in game!
Hell yeah, or for just flying over zombies very low down to show off!
Well at least it is the coolest way to bang you head!
Hmmm, you say that as if I haven't had new thing for a while?
Yeah they are on the list for drivable vehicles already.
Hehe awesome, mine is nowhere near as advanced it is very simple but does the job! :)
That I do!
Thanks mate, a stick man is always cool! :)
No, im not trying to copy of Dead Rising.
No matter what you do or say you must offer me great respect for being able to carry on with a moderately serious attitude after that was mentioned. My jaw hurt from trying not to burst out in laughter and ruin the podcast... HAHA! :D
Thanks man! :)
Who would use that?
Looks like a cloud filter with a plastic wrap filter spammed over the top of it. Could be made quicker by someone than downloading it from here if you didn't spam your name over it.
My razor mouse is superb, maybe re-install the mouse drivers and try to configure it there.
And my keyboard is better then! In gaming (mortewood vs CSS) and in real life (razor vs ANYTHING). :D
Thanks and Thanks!! :D
Thanks dude! :D
100 watchers is not at all impressive. I have half as many on my actual user profile. So what does that say?
What im saying is that it's nothing to go boasting about.
This is NOTHING like the L4D boycott, you see the boycotts problem is people saying "oh i hate the game" and then they are following, watching and pre-ordering it. But with you, people are going its crap... Not watching it, then a select few (very few) are just clicking watch without leaving any feedback or caring.
Couldn't have got some content ready before making a mod page?
Accusing me of more stuff I see.
Ahh yes! But you are so up your own arse that you missed my compliments along side it. Also saying "rubbish" is not an insult, you said so yourself on another post that blender is ****, therefore the outcome must be too. So what are you complaining about?
"PS: Screenshot is pretty low res, I'll try and have one of the team mates make a screenie in a higher res, when possible."
I WOULD LOVE TO.
Damn dude this is beyond what i imagined when you said you were making a forest. TRULY inspirational work i look forward to beta testing... HAHA everyone else! :P
Thanks mate! :)
Its an axe, what did you expect! :P
Product Placement much? HAHA!
No seriously, awesome on keeping with the theme and story of Resident Evil. Awesome work! :)
This IS how you play mortewood. :P
Erm... Good for you!
Read the description.
Yeah man, thanks! :D :D
Wow the creator of this needs to get a life.
Awesome update! :D
I love it!
We have gone through this.
"odd" is not constructive criticism. And if its something to do with how it doesn't look like another weapon image you have, well there are like infinite variations of these things.
And as for shininess on the texture, the blood is shiny, also this weapon like all varies on reflectivity depending on the light in the area.
Well then there you go, that's a plan so stick with it!
Further than the other dude got with his mod!
Wow what a useful comment. "It looks odd". Great now i can go fix it with your help.
I think it is fine. This is actually very accurate to my reference image. So you are stupid.
Haha yeah man i didn't make that software, i just did a little research for yah!
No split screen in mortewood sorry, i couldn't be bothered coding that, they added it into Left 4 Dead in the new engine, i doubt i could add that to standard Source!
Thanks anwyay and glad you like my mod! :P
Hmmm i did not comment to spite the troll you know.
I think the music is ace. Kinda reminds me of matrix in a way.
As for the content itself in the mod i think is VERY lacking, but its just the start so i know it will improve. The biggest thing in the mod is the ideas, to take a mod with a good name and give it a good setting and theme.
I was not being spiteful, i actually meant what i said.
Ah yeah, well like i said in the Description, maybe other people would be interested in this little render thing. :)
Glad you like it still! :P
Wow, that is really cool!
For some people this will be a really good use!
I realise the difficulty to code a new control system for multiple keyboards and mice would be insane, im certain there must be some software on the internet that will allow the detection and isolation of keys pressed by individual devices on a computer?
If you find some of this software you could offer this to download with the mod.
Otherwise this is an interesting find, nice work!
This any use to you?
Yupp i know, i just put it here because i love Google Chrome Errors, they are so red and pretty!
Could have maybe got more content together before making the moddb page, You have some untextured maps and what looks like a weapon of some sort.
Maybe after you get a little more content i can actually judge it.
Use 3ds max, not XSI! :D
Haha, but no seriously man, looks awesome!
Its amazing how this little custom skins can change a huge piece of the mod!
Awesome work Mapster! :D
Haha well thats not that high quality of a map, my newer ones are.
Its even faster now that i optimized the code more, the developer of this mod does not understand what is causing the lag so these low quality maps will save about 2-5fps tops compared to better models and maps + optimized code and animations etc.
Hmmm, how is it that you are the only one who sees these angry comments?
When someone gives constructive criticism then he thanks them for the time and explains how they may be incorrect or how it may be changed.
Saying something is terrible is not constructive, that is just an insult, it doesn't explain what is wrong so he has the damn right to comment with crap. Saying something like its missing polygons is constructive, its an observation.
In this example "bad modelling" is not constructive. You sir need to learn the difference before commenting or making crap up.
And why you are referring to this guy and you as "We" kinda makes it seem like you are working together to offer this terrible excuse of constructive criticism. Maybe you are both the ones going round down voting everything. Who knows...
Either way you need to learn and actually do your research before claiming he retaliates with insults.
Not only that but i have never seen a comment along the lines of "OMFG THIS MODEL IS THA ****".
And at previous comment explaining that its missing a specular map. The idiot does not have a clue what he is talking about, hence why he got a rant.
No i feel that maps are easier to lose polys and detail, view models being close and right in front of you allot, makes it look worse than a square map for example.
In fact i have NEVER seen Joure give back feedback to people, so what the hell are you chatting?
I think the modelling is fine, and judging the whole car on some missing polygons? Wow picky people or what?
Hmm i see what you are trying to achieve by lowering the poly count. But when you get to the huge battles you will be surprised at the low number of enemies you will get.
This is due to how the source engine works and im not sure if this can even be changed. The best bit would be to look in the code and force lower rendering and difference LOD's.
I just think that if you made stuff at Medium instead of Low detail then you would not make the max number of NPC's lower or higher.
By the way im speaking from experience here.
The idea, maps and characters are nice and well fitting. The models of weapons and animations are incredibly below the standards set by the maps and characters. Some of the models look untextured and the sheer scale of the hands is just odd in so many ways.
If this scaling and models are just a WIP then i will look forward till they are fixed.
Sounds nice, hope you can pull it off!
Description >> READ IT.
Haha no meteor will stop Mortewood!
Haham oh hell yeah!
Well ive been going for a while, aint gonna stop any time soon haha. I use 3ds Max 7 and Photoshop for my weapons.
Awh thanks mate! :)
I hope it will get somewhere! :)
To people i cant be bothered making a better comment for.
Hahaha its fun!
Well im not going to animate them differently depending on the body groups so im just going to leave it. The animations you have seen will be changed but he will still use both hands. I don't think a zombie will have the brains to hit with with his hand or his stump so long has he whacks you with something, Haha :D
Ok, dude that is 600% fail.
You have no right to comment on grammar when you can barely spell anything at all. You do realise these images are just previews of stuff in the mod and to be less boring he has displayed them in the form of a new article. At least that adds some diversity and change to the new for the mod. It makes it more interesting. Not doing so would be as stupid as trying to pass a map-pack off for a whole mod...
Still even all that is not enough to act like a troll/*** and post "lame".
Hehe thanks!, and yeah sorry the demo will be a while off!
Hehe yeah, well i know some people would say its another realism jolt, but i love it and its staying that way!
Yeah they still walk around, i think it lasts around 5 seconds, just enough time to let him get into the crowd of zombies!
Haha cheers man and as cool as acid would be, water effects for that would be insane so ill leave it out for now sorry.
You just quoted me and i cant tell were it ends.
Basically, this skin is not the best, it may be changed in the future but now yet.
Thaaaanks dude! :)
Thanks!, got it ingame now!
Haha maybe, but it couldn't really be hand-held.
WTF lol, old image dude! :D
Yeah, check the more recent images.
Haha, cheers! :D
Yeah man, im 4th! :D
And thanks for the add mate!
Mannnn looking stunning and perfect as always!
The one i use is fab, but im not an expert on laptops, research a Dell 1720.
Hahaha cool man, means you got style! :D
Thanks for the friend request! :)
Haha, too much caps but thanks for your enthusiasm but im not in need of any raping, if you did come to my house you might as well test as opposed to rape me.
Thanks bud! I try to keep it all fresh. :D
Haha, lol! Allot of people seem to like my accent, i never notice it really! :P
Looking pretty good!.
Cant wait to see/hear more!
I did on important parts, yet people still missed it.
Also why would i spam my own pictures?
If you go into the orange box mod source code > click show all files > find the "zombie.cpp" then right click and click > Include in Project...
Wallah you now have zombine in episode 2 code for a mod.
Not really sure what that is, so ill just say: Its a Minigun :D
Haha sounds nice, thanks!
Im sorry, what?
Its a skateboard, if you got someone with one they don't have pack a punch, my friend Adam broke some chavs nose with one once.
Haha yeah man!
Oh hells yeah!
Ah, cool thanks :D
Thanks man! Its gonna have a few more features but it will do for now! :D
Yupp, another mod of no content by developers who are learning the basics while the mod is in production.
Thanks man, It was your wise teaching of c++ that eventually got me to here! :)
Haha, thanks, its not any harder than a team, just takes longer :P
Haha, you never get a real close-up of the top, its just unnecessary detail. Plus its pure metal, no cheap hollow bat here.
Yeah, well i quoted simpsons instead.
Hahaha, is that Simpsons reference?
"Thats not a knife, THIS is a knife!",
"No, thats a spoon...",
"Okay kid, you win, i see you have played Knifeyspoony before!".
I love the simpsons :P
Thanks man :)!!
Hahaha, the nicer a texture, the more pwn?
I like those odds!
I remember him from ages ago, never watched it, i used to watch people like The Rock, but i do remember these crazy classics from when i was a kid... God i feel old now.
Its only a team of 1, but i have help with music, and a touch of programming here and there, but the overall mod is a one man project. :)
Haha thanks, well one feature of this mod will be custom content, and a ton of it too :)
Haha thanks :)
I'm not a professional if that's what you mean? haha :D
Well with this beast yeah!
This thing will obliterate a zombie head!
Yeh, or you can use any other weapon to blow heads off!
Yeah, im going have it so when you spawn you have a random colour maybe :D
Ugh... Fine ill make female ones for you tonight then.. :P
Cheers dude! :)
All in good time :D
Thanks man :)
I cant wait to get it finished myself :D
What more to say really?
(i <3 John)
Haha, well use your free time to learn.
I know :D
You do missions, help people, find weapons, get achievements and lay down pure ownage!
Its all on the main page!
Thanks somuch :)
P.S I'm always the stick man :P
"I have a mod idea.. Now i need a team."
You sir have failed. Get a team together, get a decent idea. The come back instead of wasting my time, and all the other nice users on this website.
Ill see, im having problems with vehicles now that i have moved engine. Thanks
Haha its a good game!
Thanks man! you going be upset though, wishing as Agent 47 you could punch a zombie in the FACE!
Hehe thanks!, that's exactly what i was going for, the normal half life one just didn't work.
I hope you can get a team ready to be able to create all your ideas, as for the mapping...
Its BEAUTIFUL. One of the most amazing looking forest style maps i have ever seen, puts Half-Life EP2 to shame :P
Why you have split your idea into 3 comments in beyond me. I already have survival down, it will vary for maps but it already does exactly like survival would do. Bosses are in singleplayer. Game modes are not yet implemented into Co-op.
Its basically exactly what you said, only it will vary for different maps.
And what this mod will become:
Haha, i will, honestly :)
Isnt there alot of stargate mod?
You have some real big mods to fight off so i wish you luck!
Yeah! I have an SDK map for all gamemodes with all weapons and tutorials and prefabs for mappers :)
The game has a menu called "FREE-MODE" were all mine, and other peopels custom maps can be played :)
Because you seem to think that this is somewhat an easy job that i could handle, forgetting how difficult it would be to pull it off. Thats why.
Like i said before. You know little about the source engine.
And you said that i should make this, and i said i cant, so why not leave it as that?
It is possible to do, just not possible for me and that is the main point, my other point was that is had never been done in a source mod, not a source game, so i was right on these. Maybe it is possible, but until i get the work from another genious programmer who has proof they have done it, im going to stick with my initial belief that it isnt possible.
Because they are fists.. For punching, i have a knife as a separate weapon.
You must have not seen anything about it either. That is a SOURCE GAME. Not a mod, its a licensed game... What does this allow you ask?
How about a completely fully open engine supplied by valve, and created using top professional game developers and programmers.
I am one person, and i cant do it. I've also never seen it in a >> SOURCE MOD << before.
So please dont try to prove me wrong with facts that are incorrect.
You clearny know little about the source engine, im pretty certian it cant be done becuase of the way view models work.
Maybe yeah, just hoping im not taking the gore too far :P
Haha, all in good time mister freeman.
I don't understand?
All blood decals here are custom and new.
It does create a huge lag LOL, But i think i have found a method of creating it that wont lag :)
Same with molotovs :D
Well thank you for the help :)
It can be used for taking pictures, but not Dynamically. You just click, and the phone will vanish and a screen shot will be taken and saved for you :D
Well it would have to vary for zombies, at the moment it looks just like a blood splatter would, it would be lighter splat because its thinner as opposed to coagulated blood which leaks from the body in large amounts.
Im using idea based off one of my favourite games.
I don't know, if just just let go of it, then it should do a fare bit of damage like normal!.
As for knocking them down it wont, because it will be covered in spikes :D
How would i know? Haha i don't speak all these languages, i just looked on the internet for something nice to say to people at Christmas.
You haven't complained about anything in the other video...
And I've had about 6 comments on how well the car looks so im afraid im going to keep it how it is, maybe adjust it a little but near the same.
Glowing eyes on zombies make no sense. I dont know hy in movies and stuff that eyes would glow?
Im getting my zombies realistic to how i think zombies should be, and i think glowing eyes is just wierd.
Thanks Joure :)
Was hard to rig this badboy and i hope the animations make it work ingame :D
Not actual midgets just dead kids, like off the movie 28 Days Later, they enter a garage to get petrol, the guy goes into the store like an idiot, and kinds a kid that tried to eat him, it was freaky until he based his face in with a bat haha :D
Ill put them in, and if people complain then ill remove them, or release 2 versions :D
Yeah, a new map update every now and again, it will be updated with a new map every week upon release, probably judged by me, and the user of the launcher can easily see that this is a worthy map and will be able to download it from here!
I also might make a past map list of the best, just a simple website library, so other maps not shows will also get a shot at being viewed by others!
Yeah, maybe just a leg or an arm, dont want too many :D
Haha thats called funny not creepy :D
Get your emotions right :P
Hehe :D nice idea :D
Thanks Guys :)
Believe me when I say, and i'm not being modest, but the reason i'm a little slow at developing in a sense, because well, every time I go to test something new, e.g. a new weapon, if it works or not I still get sucked into playing, usually the developers of a game get sick of the same thing after time, but its SO addicting, and that is one of the reason why I am proud! :)
Its not for everyone, but give it a try when its out :D
It will have a role playing aspect, bosses, missions, and people who will help you, plus the overall kill as much as you please fun aspect :D
The lighting will be fixed, I work on supreme detail on the maps last, cinematic, story and game play are my main concern as of yet :)
I'm not really sure what SMOD is, but it isnt based on anything that isn't full of zombies, if you are referring to beta weapons, the OCIW I have always loved, and the MP5k is just amazing, the icepick is fun, and well, why not use them, more weapons the merrier :)
Thanks for the quick feedback :)
The more you praise me, the faster i work :P
Any requests? GO AHEAD AND REQUEST!! :D
Ill do my best :)
SMOD does look okay I guess, but I'm trying to keep my mod full of either Valve's or my own content.
Thanks for the idea though!
Hell Yes :)
But for all the people who cant play it, due to console restrictions, hopefully this will fill the zombie Single Player void in each of their hearts :P
F.A. Game = F.A.G, I thought it was kinda funny, plus a cool name :)
Yeah but they are completely different games, if anything Zombie Panic! Source will be hit harder because its the same style game play, its multilayer with one team as zombies!
My Mod is a single player one with completely different goals than L4D.
Also their is an issue of price, not everyone will have money for L4D but mine will be their in the background.
Fortress Forever failed slightly because it was almost exactly the same as Team Fortress 2.
Mine is nothing like L4D, it may be zombies, but you can clearly see they are nothing alike, my one is more like Dead Rising. If Dead Rising comes out built on the source engine then I am in big trouble.
This Is My Rival Zombie Mod I See! :D
Joking, we are in complete different categories, yours looks magic though, look forward to playing!
Love the insane ideas, id imagine it will be fun as hell!
Ignore what people say, unless they can do better and prove it, then you should ignore them!
This is a mod, a random one, with crazy ideas!
Anyone who thinks certain zombie mods will be crushed by left 4 dead is silly, the one difference is price, as opposed to game play. You cant go round comparing Doom95 to Crysis :P
Yet again, nice release, look forward to a play of this :)
I Wanted To Do This For My College :D
AND FILL IT WITH ZOMBIESSS!!!
But No :D
I Like This :D
I Have To Admit. Awesome!!
But Doom Would Be Better :D
Its.... Well.... Beautiful.
Very Nice Work!
That Is Totally Insane :O
But I Imagine Would Be Good When Finished!
Random Ideas Is Always Good!
Keep Up The Good Work! :)
