Just as mankind is on the brink of extinction from a deadly pandemic, Extraterrestrials establish contact and offer a "cure" (an organism from their home planet). Although the majority of the population is afflicted by the raging virus and have no other option, a small minority immune to the virus resist the organism. Due to Mans inability to coexist, a social division emerges masking the presence of this hostile organism.

Players can either choose to play as the Human Resistance and fight back the rising threat of the Necrotrophs, or wipe clean the dirty slate of humanity. With abilities like: picking up any melee weapon, radar (to coordinate attacks), nightvision, and more, the Necrotrophs are very dangerous. While the Resistance may be outnumbered, with an inventory, ranged and melee weapons to choose from, and ironsights, the Resistance are also no slouch.

As the title suggests, we are looking for serious and dedicated server admins who have experience operating and running dedicated servers. More specifically, we are looking for someone to help us fine-tune the server files. The ideal server admin is someone who can host a test server for us 24/7 and can swap files quickly when contacted. If you are interested in working with us, please respond below.

Please keep in mind, this is NOT a request for beta testers or for people to actually play the mod. The server admins who apply here will get only the required server files (no client.dll).

Oh and the Resistance were inspired by the white guy and Selena (specifically the scene where they rescue Jim as he flees from the church).

Quote:IMDB: "I am Legend" Release Date: 14 December 2007

No it's not a copy of I am Legend. I've been developing and conceptualizing this mod since mid 2006. If this were a copy that means after watching the movie I would have had to create all of this work (I'm the only artist, mapper, and writer on the mod) like the map, textures, sounds, story, models, etc in less than 6 months. I'm good but not THAT good. It's tough to get this stuff done with school/work/girlfriend as is. Does it share similarities? Sure. Both have a post-apocalyptic setting and show the decaying of an urban environment and plant life becoming dominant again. If you want to know my REAL inspirations it was Invasion of the Body snatchers and the towns people of Resident Evil 4 (the Necros can pick up melee weapons just like the people who had "Las Plagas" in that game.
