Dynamic Zombie Sandbox .95 Release

Yes. I put that desk there Dynamic Zombie Sandbox V.95 ReleaseDynamic Zombie Sandbox V.95 Release Dynamic Zombie Sandbox V.95 Release

Overview

Today I have another slice of the zombie pie to deliver. Zombie sounds have been completely redone, zombies should never stop spawning now. I added more parameters. R3F logistics were added. NVGs and more.

What's New?

  • I decided to use celery's way of spawning hordes, which is more efficient.
  • Large hordes now roam the map searching out players.
  • Zombies don't stop spawning, and every chunk of time the zombies refresh themselves so the mission doesn't bog down.
  • R3F logistics were added, you can now tow vehicles and move objects in vehicles to make yourself a base. Objects spawn randomly in towns like cars do.
  • The Vanilla A2 version was fixed. Weapons are found in boxes instead of cars, I had to do this because there is no "addWeaponCargoGlobal" command for A2
  • NVGs were added because of popular request
  • I removed Construction as it was causing issues and R3F does a better job IMHO
  • Improved startup stability, instead of multiple scripts, now it is one big script, weapon choosing has been optimized.
  • And the zombie sounds have been completely redone. :D
  • A new loading screen was made by tonic!

If a steam deal pops up for Arma 2 & Operation Arrowhead we should encourage everyone we know who likes zombie games to get it, steam does some good deals from time to time! After living off half life 2 zombies mods for years I gotta say this is a nice bit of fresh air, something different and it's great. Trouble with hl2 is the map size so the way it plays out is very level based whereas this is just wtf this place is huge o_O

With the difficulty up and map marker off its almost impossible to figure out where you are, once you do and once you find a few other people it's such a relief! I was playing for like 20 minutes, no guns running around in the darkness and out of nowhere I heard a convoy in the distance, luckily was able to cut them off and join the bus, was such an epic moment :D

There is a 50% off all BI games going on right now actually, but not on steam. You could still tell people via the Steam forums I'm sure. Check out the BI store, even the DLC is 50% off. :)

Agreed, The BIS store gives more money to BIS, and that lets them make ArmA 3 better, :D

ArmA 2 F2P (A2F, ArmA 2 Free, whatever) doesn't support mod, but this is technically a mission, allowing it to be used in A2F.

:D

Are you playing on ArmA 2 OA? I hate it when one word can ruin the whole version. I'll fix it and re-upload it.

Like this 'mod.'
I'm gonna have to buy the game I guess to keep it from Crashing to Desktop. :(

Btw, can you put up the parameters/settings for a dedicated server file? Thanks!

In a long game with friends, everyone is on the server crash. Only the host plays, and all departures.

This is a great mod but the only thing that bothers me is that weapons are really rare on the map, even if I set the parameter on how much weapons there are on the map to plenty nothing changes.

"R3F logistics were added, you can now tow vehicles and move objects in vehicles to make yourself a base. Objects spawn randomly in towns like cars do." Only thing I can do is look inside vehicles inventories the majority of the time, very rarely am I able to use all the features of R3F. My friend can move/place things whenever he wants, but he can't tow anything (nobody can). Seems to be completely random who can do what - Is there a easy fix to this? its extremely annoying >_>

Not an easy fix, I've been looking into it for a while, and I can't seem to find the problem. Are you using dedicated or listen server?

I'm having an issue with the OA version. I only have OA installed (complete clean of install. 1.60) No matter what I try I always get the "class Citizen1 no longer exists" error when trying to load up the mission in MP. Any guidance is appreciated.

I have a problem with this mission. I extract it with cpbo, and edit description.ext to change defaults so that cars can't spawn only destroyed, as it tends to happen on servers. But after i make the .pbo without any other modifications and try it out, the game freezes...
Arma becomes unresponsive...

Edit: The game became unresponsive because i also toggled another script in description.ext

Hey guys, this is a great mission that you have made, but i noticed one thing - there is not a good portable light source in Arma2, besides cars. In OA or CO there are weapons with flashlights (g17, for ex.), but no such guns in Arma 2 or Arma 2 Free. Maybe you should create the option to use artificial flashlights (by attaching lights to players). Propably with another parameter in server, cvg_lights or something, if 0 then nothing happens, if 1 then everyone gets NVGs, if 2 then players have an option in scroll menu to toggle flashlight.
Although i have no idea how this would work in multiplayer, here is how i make flashlights in singleplayer - Heypasteit.com

How do you edit the mission? there is only like 3 things i want to put in. one is PMC skins because the PMC look like surrvivers. two is helicopters when i say helicopters i mean for maps like chernarus so you don't drive around for an hour trying to get some were. three pre-built military bases like with apcs and military vehicals and weapons but i want to build these at towns like chernagorsk. I might want to put some other stuff in there but the reason for this is to make it funner its amazing already not saying it sucks but i've been on servers that have this mission edited, like one had different blufor skins and some indipendent skins helicopters and bases. all im asking is how do you edit this mission, please i absolutly love it. i plan on making a dedicated server at the island namalsk. so if you can reply will you i must know how.

I do not know if it's me but when the second loading screen freezes near the finishing point. I sat there for atleast 4 minutes waiting, I was wondering if I got somethin wrong. I installed it into the MPfolder so it should work right? I also was wondering if I can just make a server for myself, by putting it into the reguler missions file
