Modeling & Art Work

Maxx has been working hard at creating a great new gun, the Ruger 10/22 which he just recently finished. This is just added to the long list of amazing weapons and props that Maxx has cranked out. It doesn't stop there though just today he started working on another weapon a Colt 1911 handgun.

Wouldnt it be better to link your homepage in the profile on moddb instead of the forums?

Looks good but i'm sick of seeing zombie mods now it's just another same old modification (even though you guys used to be the best out there).

I'm not saying this will be rubbish but it's just the same zombie idea it's getting very repetative now i think everyones just jumping on the band wagon. I think yah these were one of the first to come up with it at first anyway but some mods are just doing it just because everyone else is.

Not only does every zombie game or mod I've played focus on entirely different kinds of game play, but this one does as well. The "not another zombie mod" comment is baseless and meaningless, and - believe it or not - there are a lot of people like me who love zombies and want to see more of them.

It sure is a fad to say you're sick of zombie mods these days. I'm sick of military shooters; they're far more prevalent than zombie mods, or mods where it's "a dark future", or mods where Faction A fights Faction B for whatever grim and gritty reason.

It is hard for us to gauge. We are getting closer every day, our team is very dedicated and that is why we have weekly updates, to keep everyone in the community synced up on what we're doing.

We're still a ways out but we're doing our best to aim for a launch before the end of the year.

Any idea of planning for a future list of features?

Say develop the mod into a workable yet content wise game, and then add new features later on to add onto the already crafted gameplay...

example: Say in the future you add the ability to climb over high fences/ledges...

That wasn't a good example though... It's probably more easier for a UT3 mod to get that...

The maps look pretty damn snazzy. I'd say it reminds me of L4D but to be honest I think this looks a bit more interesting. I hope you guys keep trucking along and make a truly great zombie game. Keep it up, you have my full support. :D

Good news... I've just saved a... err wait.. I mean good news about the animations and so forth, something I have been wanting to see.

As far as the comments about zombie mods.. yea there are a "lot" but not really.. Most don't get released. This one however I think is the most promising one I have seen since the old HL1 zombie mods. ( Talking about mod wise that is.. )

One thing though that has been wracking my brain a little.. I cant remember if it was this mod or another zombie mod I was watching a long time ago that had a dev member that went by the name EvilErnie. I remember posting on the forums for that mod about a bunch of ideas for skills/abilities.. I normally have a decent memory when it comes to these things but... argh!

EvilErnie was on "DEAD Mod" I believe.
