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.

Now, im gonna be real whit you.

The respawning rate whit the zombies on survival IS HEELL CRAZY!

The collision error when you kill a zombie, there still collison in the 3 sec of the dying animation

Invinsible weapons. (weapons that appear in your inventory but you cant use when you pickup a backpack or bag of ammo/weapon)

Zombies that stack up and do LITTERALY NOTHING before you even act on them (huge exemple in the survival mode)

And i guess that it, i may start a trend about the bugs that i found.

(Sidenote: Yes, i know that your only 2 guys working on this. but there a dude, by himself, that is doing a HUGE project and it a little bit better. (He spend almost all is free-time in it.) im not trying to be rude. here the site:

Thanks for the comment. Input like this is extremely helpful since the mod is still in development. About the bugs you've found:

For the respawn rate of zombies, zombies have more reasonable health now so that with amount of zombies gameplay is more balanced.

After reading this comment I have fixed the collision bug so when a zombie dies it has no collision and wont block player or other NPCs.

For the fake weapons that show up in inventory (I like to call them ghost weapons): This is caused by increasing the amount of weapons possible in HL, in default HL there can be only 32 weapons including suit, in hazard this number has been increased to 127(The max for an 8 bit signed integer). We believe that these ghost weapons are caused by uninitialized memory, however we don't know how to fix the issue.

The stacking zombies where caused by an AI bug which has been fixed by now.
