Thread: [TvT/FFA/CO-40] Dynamic Zombie Sandbox

  1. #1

    Lightbulb [TvT/FFA/CO-40] Dynamic Zombie Sandbox



    This mission is something I have been working on for a while now, and I finally see it as ready for public beta.
    (Devheaven page:
    Devheaven)


    What is it?

    Dynamic Zombie Sandbox is a fully customizable, random, zombie mission. It is different every time, no matter what. Much like cipher from A2. The goals of the mission are in new positions with each run of the mission. It can be played as a quick mission. Giving yourself a marked objective, or hiding the location of the objective and searching the entire map for it, increasing the difficulty drastically. The parameters below account for either the easiness or difficulty of the mission.

    This mission was made to accomplish a couple things I wanted to see in zombie missions. The first being island independence. You can change the .chernarus on the pbo file to any other island and the mission will work. The only thing on the map is the playable characters. Everything else is generated via scripts.
    Along with map independence I wanted as much randomness as possible. The player will be spawned at a random town or position on the map. Vehicles spawn next to buildings with random vehicle types with random weapons inside. Military vehicles spawn by military buildings, civilian with civilian. The players weapon, if he chooses to start with one, will be randomly chosen also. A lot of things are also choose-able in the parameters screen


    I wanted to add as many parameters as possible, more are on the way.



    My vehicle spawning system spawns vehicles at buildings on the map, so they are not limited to just towns. Weapons only spawn within vehicles at the moment.

    It can be played on a listen server or dedicated.

    This is still in beta so bugs will probably be encountered.

    I plan on adding a lot more to the mission in the future, this is just the first release. I would like to add many more game modes and tasks. Maybe even a structured storyline, we shall see how it goes.

    I list the mission as TVT/FFA/COOP because the game can be played in anyway you want. You could fight over resources, get a team together and fight the rest of the people. Or unite and fight with one another.

    It is TvT If you want it to be, otherwise can choose to work together. You can be greedy and attack other players.

    No ace support yet, but I plan on making an ACE version soon.

    The mission works fine with ACE on, it removes stamina automatically, but it doesn't include any ACE weapons or vehicles yet.

    This is really nice mission, I must say Im really pleased. There are some oddities like starting with Rocket Launcher only (but overkilling Z's like that is pretty funny).

    Here are some ideas:

    -Random survivors pockets, where you can get some ammo or recruit some helpers, but such pockets would be very rare
    -A mission type: The Siege - you need to hold point for few minutes, hours or days. Z's attack in waves, you have option to skip time until next attack, or you can try your luck finding equipment out in the field. After set time you are rescued by military (chopper on convoy)
    -new goals:
    *get to the green zone cordoned off by military
    *find extraction zone and wait for chopper
    *get to survivor stronghold
    *get rescued by military armed convoy (random position, they drive around the map blowing shit up)
    *get to the boat and sail away

    - the fog is very nice, but you should give options to set weather as well, fog with thunderstorm would be really creepy

    All in all its very nice mission, very L4D like.

    BTW: Some zombies are really sneaky, lying prone in tall grass and all .

    Good mission, the ability to customize this much is great and just what I have been looking for.

    Some suggestions:
    Parameter to determine zombie speed.
    Ability to build things, particularly barriers that actually keep zombies out (I guess the idea here is to build your own safe zones).
    Parameter: Randomize spawn location of zombies, some in cities some in country (if possible).
    Parameter: Destructible buildings are a great idea, but could we have a parameter that adds more: such as wrecks, smoke and fire (JTD Fire and Smoke, this gives the battlefield a history), destroyed barriers (ala The Walking Dead Atlanta).
    Parameter: Ambient aircraft: Every now and then a helicopter or jet flies by.
    Save Function for LAN. Would be great, if possible.

    Bug:
    The parameter: Find and Defend Military Base doesn't work, it loads the mission as the script initiates the splash screen reappears zoomed and won't go away.

    Thanks for the hard work.

    Nice work!
    Scary mission.

    Tried it on Emita, worked fine!
    Except the bug that jg4500 mentions, that at some point it freezes at the splash screen.

    Cheers!

    I have set it up making "MY" dedi server and on my teams Dedi server but it always "stucks" while in map (i see only a 'splash screen'/no options *pretty much the same bug as jb4500 mentioned* )
    I tried it at least 5-6 times

    Any suggestions?..
