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.

There is nothing wrong with the idea, but implementing it with a large particle cloud is not very creative and not good performance wise. Many people who play Source mods are using older computers and Source doesn't handle particles so great. The overdraw while using them can be pain to optimize as well. That's the main culprit.

Don't bash me for having an opinion and lapping up everything a bunch of hobbiests whip up. I respect you guys for what you do, but again not the greatest thing the world has ever seen in this video. It's just lazy game design.

Mate, this thing barely impact's one FPS at all. We ran our tests and they shows a minor decrease of an average of 1-2FPS, so your claim is completely invalid. I can see where you're coming from, but have some faith in the Source engine and in us, won't you?

since you are the most unconstructive critic in moddb i have seen, i guess your only going to listen to unconstructisism.
you are a ****** prick. just shut the hell up and leave moddb. if all you have is your childish whining about something as simple as an optional boss, then we dont want you here. go jump in front of a speeding bus, and make sure you dont mess up the grill, or your life would finally be worth something: the cost to fix that grill.

excuse me everyone. i understand if this gets negatives for being as bad as he is.

Interesting... It looks super tough though. Is it easier to kill with more people? Or is it still really tough.

It's hard...easier with more people, but it's meant to be really tough. Most maps just weren't enough of a challenge for people. This boss system is sure to change that.

More bosses will be developed as time goes on. The cloud was a great idea suggested to us and we used it. A giant zombie isn't out of the question for the future, but we figured that people would complain about it looking like L4D's tank.

Yeah, it makes a really freaky noise when it teleports. It also shakes your screen and turns it red for a couple of seconds. None of this is featured in the video of course, so you're just going to have to experience it for yourself this weekend. =P

You do. The new points system in v1.52 rewards you with points per hit instead of points per kill like in v1.51. =D ... I'll look into the color change as well.

Looks a challenging change from zombies. The fact it can teleport will surprise anyone hoping it will just fly at you down a corridor and the added lighting effect which makes the environment around it look darker is cool. I would like to see that cloud go against more people just to see how it would react.

very strange concept.we leave the concept of zombie. it maybe not bad idea (I do not know) can add the monster Stephen King. (ur monster is like a monster in stephen king)

choice: or you keep the concept zombie or you go in other idea for a universe different!

This looks pretty cool , but it would be a bit better if depending on its health it would spawn zombies from it insides, like when its at full health it doesnt spawn anything , half health it spawns a few zombies and when almost dead it spam the **** out of them.
