Situation Outbreak is an Orange Box mod about the impending zombie apocalypse. Armed with nothing but a 9mm and a pair of brass knuckles, you must do whatever it takes to survive against the thousands of zombies that used to be your friends and neighbors. The cost of failure is nothing less than your free will. There are no heroes. No single person can save the world and there are not enough bullets to go around. The only thing left to do is to kill the damned, hoping that you don’t end up like them.

It's time to set things straight: no content was 'stolen' in the creation of ZombieMod: Source.

Posted by on

I would just like to make a brief but very important announcement regarding some of the familiar content depicted and used in ZombieMod: Source. Agent Red Productions obtained permission from at least one of the author's responsible for the creation of each piece of content not unique to the mod and/or created by an individual outside of the studio. Essentially, this means that while yes, we did and are using content created by others, I can assure you personally that we have full permission to do so.

Lately, things have gotten really out of hand, with people saying left and right that we have 'stolen' content and are liers. Indeed, earlier in development there were two incidents regarding outside content useage: one with Zombie Master, and one with Zombie Panic: Source. However, both issues were speedily resolved with the help of the mods' fans and even some developers before they could get completely out of hand. While this was an obvious mistake on our part, it has already been dealt with and appologies have been accepted by representatives of both mods, so we fail to see why people should continue discussing the matter and spreading hateful and false accusations.

I hope this clears the air regarding such issues. If there's anything else you'd like to know regarding these matters, please take them to the studio first instead of posting in a public forum. It's unprofessional and we'd rather handle such matters one-to-one so that no one has to suffer any unnecessary consequences.

Thanks guys, and continue to play and enjoy the mod and all it has to offer the modding community.

Im glad this has been cleared up, I personally prefer mods that dont use anything at all from outside there production tema but at least you have done it the right way. Keep on updating and keeping everyone interested.

On a sidenote on the map Chapel i found an exploit where by running off the hill under the bridge and jumping into the tree it makes you unreachable by the zombie hordes, hope this helps, Izzy

Who cares where you get your models from?

Apparently some people do, which is why I made this announcement.

Yeah, becuase it totally doesn't take hours, maybe even days, to make a good model.

Figured I'd see what all the fuss was about, and I'm pretty sure I know why the guys down at ZM and ZP:S hate you so much. Even with permission, using other mod's models is kind of lame.

"It's unprofessional and we'd rather handle such matters one-to-one so that no one has to suffer any unnecessary consequences." is that supposed to be a threat?
