Experienced players seem to do well with the game winning on average 1 out of 8 games or so during our playtests. We liked those odds and so we only adjusted things a little bit for release. We knew that once out in the public we may get a better chance to see where our initial ideas fail and where our balancing would begin. We still want to keep the helpless feeling but not take away the players hope. Always appreciate constructive criticism and will do our best to turn it into something the fans will enjoy.
Sorry but i'll pass on the CS copy cat mod. Zombie Panic on HL1 was exactly what it was suppose to be but lacked atmosphere, content, and needed more variety. Just because there were a few mods built around the idea of ZP1 doesn't mean the original creators should let poor replacements get in the way of our original idea. The game is a blast to play and survivors aren't meant to have it easy. It's true survival horror and that means chances are you're gonna lose. If it's not your type of game then you're wasting your time trying to change it into something other than "The" zombie mod :)
With the bugs soon out of the way, linux build here shortly, professional animations already 80% finished, 3 more character models (that 6 total if you count zombie counterpart) practically already in the game, and most everything HL2 almost phased out as it is with these coming patches, I'd hate to let down our loyal fans as well as those who are into the theme. There are very few zombie mods (released) and those that are coming like NMRiH dont need to hear the same ol bs. I say "more" zombie mods! If you don't like ZPS you'll like NMRiH and vice versa. They're different games with the same theme a theme we've rallied around.
lol. cause it has a few bugs its all of a sudden another cs zombie mod? We invented it first of all. It's a first release with a lot of quality content. Quit expecting a Beta to be a Commercial game and be more constructive with your crits or find something better to do with your time than troll.
Cause both are causing me trouble atm :P
Will be fixed with upcoming patch. Sorry for inconvenience.
indeed... I need sleep... almost
I'm still awake 22hours now. So you know the Installer is 654mb. Will update again soon.
Its still early morning on release day. Stop making a fool of yourself and spamming. It'll be released today on time and not "LATE" if its late for you... go to bed :P
Well considering Zombie Panic was the first MP Zombie mod. Was quite popular on HL1 and has averaged over 3000 unique visitors a day for over 2 years. It's doing ok.
I live in Japan it's 23:54PM here in Kyoto so release will be the 29th for me heh. Meaning I'm not sleeping until it releases. Lets just say I'll hurt more than anyone else.
It's only 6:51am on the 28th. lol taking awhile is 9pm :P Remember timezone is PST. So quit looking at 'your' clock :)
I edited the profile so that we are still an Upcoming mod for ModDB's 2007 Mod Awards. Dont' worry we're still releasing Dec 28th, 2009 (heh)
Guys be patient its still early morning for all. Mod isn't released yet. But I promise I will make a post and edit our profile when it is.
lol we don't follow everyones timezone it's 7:38pm on the 28th for me... We are working under PST. You'll have the mod today. Don't ask for a time or where it is till the 29th :P heh
No bother at all. You'll notice a lot of vehicles look similar in games but we went with the impala because not only is it a civilian vehicle it is also a taxi and police car in the real world. So it fits and makes it easier for us to add variety. The base is the same but in game it's not something you're gonna notice unless you're just being anal.
Actually I hadn't thought of that at all (serious) We chose the 28th for the day it's on (Friday) and our own timeframe. But that's cool none the less.
Check out Moddb.com Zombie Panic: Source and educate yourself :)
Horror/Zombies vote Zombie Panic!
Word is ZPS will be announcing something soon :)
Vote ZP:S and visit us at Zombiepanic.org
Wow not sure how that happened. Thanks for catching that. Nah at this time we only support windows.
I find it funny that you insist on knowing the level of progress involved in ZP:S and yet... I don't remember hiring you on the team. Or is it I declined your application and now your bitter? As for experience both coders on the team are very experienced. But honestly your immaturity and insults will handle this issue for me.
Thats the spirit heh
Ah, the good old Quake/HL1 modding days, when people were a lot less impatient and understanding heh (mind you it was a lot easier to get the work done too). Guys, I can't wait to play so keep up the good work and don't burn yourself out.
Always looking for new talent. Check out our forums and apply with some sample work.
Always nice to be appreciated :)
Didn't NMRiH use the same mall? Think a few other potentials did the same over the years.
Yes, but Zombie Panic: Source has taken the time to resolve this issue (vets grabbing all the best weapons). As for head shots being the only means to killing a zombie, it may be the most popular way but isn't the only.
