This is a quick little news post talking about our medic system and how it will contribute to the gameplay.

Hello everyone! Long time, no update! That's because we're working on some really crazy stuff to put into the mod. Sounds, models, new units, SCAR features, you name it, we're probably working on it. So, to pass a little bit of time and keep you guys interested, I'm explaining to you how the medic system in this game will work.

Everyone knows that in zombie movies, whenever you get bit, you need to kill the victim. Otherwise, he'll become a zombie! Simple as that.

The hard part for the mod was trying to come up with a way to do this. Obviously, according to the game, this would be friendly fire. So, our SCAR coder, sirpsychoj, had a look at the situation, and came up with a solution.

The way it will works is simple. First, you need to purchase the universal medic upgrade, available in the First Aid tent. By doing so, every survivor squad (be it builders, police officers, survivors etc, just not doctrine units), has one medic. If he dies, you gotta reinforce your squad to get him back. Anyways, the medic has an ambient healing aura. His squad will slowly heal itself. However, when a member gets bit, then he gets to work. If you have come from a previous engagement, and your squad has all members but at low health, chances are someones a zombie. So, go to the squad abilities and click on the handy dandy button with the medic on it. You'll notice that the other members are inactive; they change their stance and don't shoot, so choose your time to use this carefully. Your medic is active. He should have a pistol, and it should be aimed at the zombie, who is active, but immobile and unarmed. Do what must be done.

And, now your squad has one less guy. I guess you gotta reinforce.

That's all for now!

Well this is Great! Keep up the hard work, and I like the idea of infected soldiers. Makes me wonder how you would pull it off, but I hope it'll be out soon. No rush of course

is there no way that when a survivor gets infected, that he actually becomes a zombie, and goes to the other player/cpu?? that would be really cool... but anyways, your idea is pretty cool too!

Uh, should probably just make it that the medic can heal him, but he can't move while its happening or something like that, I think units who die should definitely get back up though.

zombies should gain health from eating dead.
