The project is dead
After so much time thinking about it and still stuck in some technical aspects I can't still developing this mod thanks to my my lack of knowledge. I don't like cancel this after like 2 years of developing but at the end it's not wasted time. I started this mod with null knowledge about modding and programmation, but with time and following the trial and error formula I learned a LOT about modding. I didn't lost 2 years in this, Not at all.
This time something stopped me in my tracks and it is something that I could not learn how it works, the S.T.A.L.K.E.R quests system with which I had planned to make the wave system of the Dead Zone mode.
Basically, trader will give you the first wave as a mission and via scripts of the quest, zombies will spawn and the objective is kill them all and return to trader for next mission / wave. It sounds like a basic thing but the X-Ray Engine is never easy. After get stuck on this so much time it made me lose the interest in this and I started other small projects like my potato addons.
Well, I will not develop this anymore, but if someone is interested in finish this or use the assets as modder resources, here is the latest build packed as a Standalone. If somebody want to finish this PM me and I will send you all the full resources.
Know issues or unfinished stuff:
- Weapons atachments doesn't work
- Weapons reload sounds are desync
- Infected and Zombie dogs AI doesn't work properly
- HUD is broken
- Perks doesn't work

Much other stuff still broken but I didn't tested them.
