cly_dota_3.png

Map: Chernarus

Players: 1-2

Story:

A part of South Zagoria has been overrun in the cover of a Sunday night's darkness. Your company was taken by surprise and every man is either dead or hiding. There is no way to get south so you have to alert the rest of the country by broadcasting a warning at the Green Mountain broadcasting tower.

Description:

This is a zombie SP/coop mission with a specific objective and one life per character. The zombies are resistant to bullets, and only a headshot is a reliable way to kill them. This is a prologue mission to the Chernarus Apocalypse series.

Chernarus Apocalypse series:

Part one

Part two

Part three

Features:

  • Addon-free but convincing zombies
  • Several zombie behavior types
  • Custom healing script with shareable bandages
  • Pistols are accurate
  • Selectable friendly fire damage rate
  • Players have name tags
  • JIP players start close to the group
  • Character gear, bandages and damage are saved in case a player disconnects
  • Spectator mode after death

Credits:

Mission and scripts: Celery

Apocalypse series concept: Zipper5 and Celery

Noises and screams: Thief II: The Metal Age and freesound.org

The mission has been designed to run without mods but should work fine with most mods. ACE is accommodated by removing the stamina feature.

As usual, what to say, nothing but GREAT!!!

I suppose that soon there will be enough stuff for an undead campaign.

Bye!

All of Celery's missions are fantastic. I had been considering making a Co-Op version of Dawn of the Apocalypse for me and a friend to play and now I don't have to!

The Armaholic links were broken so probably a lot of people didn't get to download the mission. The download links are working now.

Celery,

Thank you for your Zombie missions. We're enjoying the missions on our dedicated server. I haven't tried Dawn of the Apocalypse yet, so here goes!

Hi there great mission a few questions though

Me and me bro is playing it on dedi server and instead of doing main mission (radio tower) we decided to scout for better weapons first

We are playing with ACE2 BTW.

Is there any ammo crates any where or goodies for us to actually find?.

Not in that mission AFAIK.

The only one task is to get to the radio tower to send the message faster than your ammo falls to zero and before "The Loved unDead" starts to feed on your brain.

Have a nice time!

This was one of the hardest things I have ever tried. And man, was it scary! Sweet mission, but a bit much to take on alone, I must admit. At least with the amount of ammo provided. Btw, you are allmost able to drive the UAZ to the fuel station. Died trying :P
