ZombieMod takes a unique approach on the Zombie Apocalypse by putting it in the perspective of a military commander, not a survivor. Since it is 2 years after the first infections, resistance on the east coast is organized, resulting in battles rather than small groups fighting for survival.

Report article RSS Feed International Crisis

The second doctrine for the Survivors, "International Crisis" focuses on the impact the collapse of the U.S. has on the rest of the world, and the subsequent relief efforts.

Posted by burtondrummerNY on Jul 15th, 2011

It is the 20th of December, 2015. The liberation forces have spread across the United States until the western coast. As the forces are about to enter California, the United Nations votes to send relief efforts to the battered United States. This is where our update begins.

International Crisis adds relief forces and abilities to the survivor's arsenal, enabling them to be more daring in combat. Survivors gain the support of foreign troops, several abilities, and the M1126 Stryker, but unlike the Protectors of the Homeland doctrine, it is not as powerful, and still requires mostly civilians.

Left Side: Brothers in Arms

1) Monetary Donation: 100 MP - A donation of 300 Manpower and 200 Munitions will be given to survivor forces. However, incoming manpower resources will be halved to pay off the loan.
2) Weapons Crates: 200 MP - A weapon crate will be paradropped on the map, allowing a squad to pick up weapons such as the M16 and the M240b.
3) Brothers in Arms: 450 MP - A random supporting nation (UK, Canada, Germany, Russia) will send a squad to help fight the undead. However, the recharge time is high, so use them wisely.

Right Side: Supplies

1) Care Package: 200 MP - You will be given either munitions or fuel to help fight the undead.
2) Observation Satellites: 300 MP, 50 Munitions - A military satellite will be directed to your sector for a period of time, revealing a designated area.
3) Stryker IFV: 600 MP, 50 Fuel - We have received enough fuel from our neighbors to run a M1126 Stryker. It can carry up to 8 soldiers and is armed with a M2 .50 Cal mounted on a CROWS.

The Stryker looks great, not too sure on the road block pieces/ sign, there's a bit of a scaling discrepancy between them and the quality differs between them. Great work tho!

The HESCO bastions (the blocks) are about neck high on a soldier in real life, and they are that high in ZM. The fence is meant to be too high for a person to climb, so they are much taller than a person. The skin quality on the fence is lower than other work because that's actually the first asset I put ingame :P

Hmm maybe its just the sign thats offscale then, arent you able to wlak under signs like that really?
Oh and I hope it doesn't sound like i'm criticizing too much but your soldier models look dead themselves! There skin is almost white, add a bit of colour dude! :P
Oh and can you give the royal marines a green baret, that'd make them stand out a little more.

1) Atmosphere makes everything look greyscale, as you can see from the pictures posted separately thy have normal flesh tones.
2) No berets because royal marines do not wear them in to combat, only in peacekeeping operations.
3) The sign is to scale, and I've never been able to walk under one of them (i live on the border of NY and NJ so there's a sign near my house)

Are you gonna make a Dawn of War II-like damage system ? Because your close-combat system is pretty good. And I really cannot figure out a zombie with a RPG :p
