Summary

Zombie Master: Reborn combines FPS and RTS experience into one terrifying package. Each round a willing player is chosen to be the Zombie Master. ZM's job is to summon and command zombies, and kill the remaining survivors. The unlucky who didn't get picked, assume the role of a survivor. Their goal is to stay alive and complete the map objectives.

Reviving your favorite FPS/RTS hybrid from the dead

Zombie Master: Reborn is a rebirth of one of the first Source mods, Zombie Master. ZMR aims to build upon the foundation of the original with new features and long overdue bug fixes.

How's it going, BROTHER! Today, I, the real Hulk, bring you a great update! You might remember me from this hit film! No, I am not related to the humen called Hogan. It has been a while since the last update, but I assure you, brother, it's worth the sacrifice!



Moving to Steam

Documents have been sent, fees have been paid, sweat has been... sweated. Bada bing, bada boom, we're on Steam.
If you visit our Discord, you already know that Steam keys have been given out and playtest sessions have been held. You may still apply for a key by joining our Discord group and filling this Google form.
Let's be clear here, the Steam is currently just for playtesting purposes as it makes sharing an update a lot easier. Steam is the next big step, but we're still far from proper release.



Beta 2


AI update

ZM advertises itself as an RTS game. AI is something an RTS game should excel at, or at least give the player proper tools to control the units. Despite this, commanding units is an absolute chore as they sometimes refuse to move at all, or it feels like it takes forever for the unit to respond to a command.

With this update, I'm happy to say that this is now in the past. Units respond to your commands instantly, clear destroyable obstacles by themselves and queue your next command if they are doing something else at the moment.



The pathfinding has been upgraded to navigation meshes. Nav meshes are editable in-game and, despite being ground only, in our case are far more flexible and "smarter". Pathfinding is still possible with AI graph to support maps that don't have nav meshes build for them. For mappers and those who want to help, you can use these video tutorials to get started. All custom meshes are collected here.

Accurate representation of how it feels to command units.



The change that made memes into reality...

Hulk's legs are now its weak point! For far too long Hulk's hitboxes have been completely screwed. Hulk was practically a walking box; you could shoot BETWEEN the legs and still register it as a hit. In fact, it was a lot safer to shoot the legs than the body, hence the false assumption that the legs take more damage. Fixing this opened an opportunity to do something else with the Hulk. Hulk is still the dangerous moving wall that it was, but now survivors are rewarded by well placed shots.

Got tired of the default HL2 crosshair. So, here are some customizable ones!

I helped spread that rumor about Hulk's legs taking damage, I'm glad I help in something.

Just looked at the servers list. A grand total of zero players on what, 5 servers? "Only babies think this is dead." Sorry sperg, no matter how you phrase it, this mod is dead right now. If you'd have played this mod over the years, you'd know how much more lively it was compared to today. Sadly you seem to know little. Hopefully it regains popularity with the Steam release.

The mod is nowhere near dead, we play almost everyday. If you join the Discord you will be notified when people are playing or when we're having big events.

Insane how this mod was somehow surpassed by the other godawful zombie sourcemods out there. How did Zombie Panic Source, an awful mod, get a Steam release over this? Off the top of my head, there's no zombie game quite like this - where you get to be the AI director. Crazy world.

Sad to see this is still dead. Kids these days don't bother sorting downloaded folders into their Steam sourcemods folder. It's all done on Steam now. Without a Steam release, this'll as dead as it is now. Bloody shame too, this mod is great. I'll never forget the overplayed red queen map.

This ain't really dead, people use the Discord to call others to play from time to time, but it tends to be most populated on weekends. There's a Steam version in testing as well.

Yes, I've joined in on the single server that gets populated from time to time. Hence why I called it dead - the only 5 servers only get populated through a small circle of players. Good to hear about the Steam version, hopefully it comes back to popularity.
