A Zombie Survival Half-Life Modification

The Infected are everywhere. Everything you know has been destroyed. Friends and family are infected or missing. Do you have what it takes to survive in an undead world?

Inspired by CSO, CS/CZ Zombie Plague, Outbreak, Brainbread, They Hunger, and DayZ

In Hazard, I've been experimenting with various different types of zombie spawning. There are 3 types I am considering for the next release.

1. Fixed spawn points. This is what old versions of hazard used. There were set points on the map where zombies would spawn. This method is predictable but reliable.

2. Random spawning method 1. In this method, an entity is placed on the map and zombies will be spawned within a given radius of it

3. Random spawning method 2. In this method, zombies are spawned within a certain radius of the player.

There are pros and cons of each of these methods, and I'd like to know what the watchers of the mod think would be the best course of action. Another possibility to consider is using a combination of the above methods.

Thank you for reading and I hope to receive feedback on this matter.

I will also take this opportunity to showcase some of what I've been working on lately:

Thanks for tracking or checking out the mod page. I am really trying my best to make this mod as fun and interesting as I can.

Are you going to add Multiplayer to this? Or will it just be Singleplayer?

New gameplay modes except Kill'em'all would be more interesting. Base capture, for example. Capturing the base disables enemy respawn in certain area, so you should take over all the bases to clear whole map. Or, you can capture bases to make your way through infested territory, from base to base. Maybe you even can collect some parts of special weapon (like a bomb) to use this weapon later. Or you can help for some survivors to get a safe place (though this requires a clever enough AI for your companions, or they will die too frequently :) ).

Also, when you play single (without allied units on a map) it easy to run out of ammo after some time, because weapons drop rare enough. And health/armor do not drop at all.

Also, a fix for key setting page would be helpful, with adding of new specific commands (like nightvision).

Health actually does drop, It's just very rare. As I mentioned in previous comments, Hazard is getting a complete overhaul, I would like to add a few alternative modes in addition to the normal survival, I feel like I will definitely add some sort of escape mode, where player has to locate and get to evacuation points in time to be picked up by a plane/boat or whatever. It would be similar to an open world Left 4 Dead. I have actually thought about a mode to rescue survivors, and capturing areas, but it is too early to consider these modes yet, and like you said would require much better human AI, otherwise it would just be annoying. I am working on a Technology demo to showcase new AI, because I want to show how the addition of different zombie behaviors challenges the player in a unique way.
