In your description of the mod you begin talking about zombies fighting normal ppl and stuff, but only a few lines further u describe ur mod as 2 teams fighting each other with ak47's etc. PLEASE!!!!!!!

Maybe u have this written in a secret design document, but u should start describing whats fun about the gameplay, what can dead ppl do etc. Website looks good tho :)

if you read the FAQ list posted here: http://mods.moddb.com/4448/

you will find out a bit more on what the gameplay will be like and what features will be in the mod.

I read the FAQ , theres not much info about gameplay. Your mod is 2 teams fighting each other with realistic guns, like almost all mods out there. Except ofcourse one team is undead, but as far as i can tell this just means one team will have a zombie skin. So its gonna be 2 teams fighting each other with real guns? If not, put it on ur frontpage

Well first off the dead in this mod will not be those leg dragging, BRAINS! mumbling slow zombies like in the movies or in other mods, these zombies (dead we like to call them) will be fast, smart and strong, ever play a zombie that can attack others with an AK47? or maybe a baseball bat? Don't think so, these dead, will make the gameplay alot more fun along with keeping the action going... I don't think anyone wants to play a slow moving zombie that can only bite people...

It sounds like ur saying the zombies wont look, move or fight like zombies but will be just like normal humans, which kinda defeats the purpose of using zombies. Maybe im crazy, but playing as a slow moving zombie that can take a 1000 bullets stalking your weak human opponent and eating his intestines sounds alot more fun than playing a humanlike zombie with an ak47, against a human with an ak47.

Then you just skimmed the FAQ, you didn't actually read all of it... the FAQ explains how the zombies will have a mutation system, allowing them to mutate into better killers, with each mutation adding a new look and skill for the player.

and if you would have read it you would have seen that the zombies will only beable to use a small selection of weapons, most of them being melee sytle weapons, there bite will be there strongest and most deadly weapon, but of course you'll have to be close to use that.

"OUR" zombies won't be normal zombies threw the whole game, the player will select a zombie class at the beginning of the level, then after he has earned the skills to mutate himself he will be allowed to choose from different options what he wants to mutate, then he will mutate, changing his look and abilities. We never claimed to be a run ofthe mill zombie mod, think of this as more of a Resident Evil meets Natural Selection meets Firearms kind of mod. Also if you would have looked more closely at the FAQ you would have seen that only the humans will be allowed to use the more powerful weapons in the mod, and the weapons will be real life weapons because we don't want to use laser guns or plasma rifles etc. we want weapons of mass destruction in this game, to make it as bloody and gory as possible.

As far as gameplay goes the FAQ lists that there will be a few different types of game modes (depending on the level your playing)

Some gametypes that we intend to include are Deathmatch, Attack & Defend, Demolition, Capture & Extract, and many others.

(so that explains what the gameplay will be like)

The zombies will start off looking just like a normal zombie would, only with our mutation system they will beable to change, if you would read the story line on the website you would see how this is possible.

Which is also listed here: http://mods.moddb.com/4448/ in the about section of the mod (its a general storyline which explains how the zombies have the ability to mutate)

Human classes will also beable to change, they will have an evolution system, the more skills they earn the more skills they will unlock and beavle to use, such as a medic skill allowing them to help wounded players or infected players, although they wont change in appereance they will change in skill levels.

I read all that, but stuff like mutating and skills could mean anything, or nothing. What do u mutate into, and what are these zombie skills?

In all mods and games players have skills, even in counterstrike. Mutating could mean anything, from getting a new skill like carrying 2 grenades instead of 1, or morfing into a butterfly. The last one would be really interesting then what ur site says now, which is ''mutating will get u new skills with which u can do something, and u will be a better player with more powerful weapons"

In NS u dont just get more powerful weapons when u mutate, u can climb walls, teleport and fly. I dunno what ur zombies can do :?

CLASSIFIED

RE: COLONEL H. GLOVER

In 1966 Darrow Chemical Company was ordered by the military to develop the top secret chemical Trioxin. They were told it would be for marijuana defoliation. An accidental leak into the Pittsburgh VA Hospital morgue resulted in a contamination that literally reanimated corpses. The Army Corps of Engineers contained the bodies in a cryonic state inside airtight biohazard drums. A shipment of six drums was lost in the rushed transport to a storage facility.

The bio-warfare experimentation that could create indestructible soldiers in the event of war was launched using this new weapon, 2, 4, 5 Trioxin. The military’s orders to medical supply warehouses for cadavers are common and assumed to be for ballistic tests.

What the Army did not know is that the lost Easter Eggs had been rotting in the basement of the nation’s largest medical supply warehouse in an industrial park outside Louisville, Kentucky.

All was revealed the night of Friday, July 3, 1984 and by Independence Day, 12 hours after the last Egg hatched, yet another cover up had begun…

The July Fourth 1984 Industrial Disaster of Jefferson County

Q: Will we beable to shoot off body parts?

A: Yes some body parts will be flying off, were still working on the system to do this and make it look as real as we can.

Q: Will I need Half-Life 2 in order to play D.E.A.D?

A: Yes. Because D.E.A.D will be using the Half-Life 2 engine (Source), you will need the original game in order to play D.E.A.D.

Q: Is there a release date?

A: Not at this moment, it takes alot of work to complete a mod and things cannot be rushed because it will only effect the quality of the mod, so we are taking our time and making sure every detail as been looked at.

Q: How will this mod be different from all the other HL² zombie mods that are being made?

A: There seems to be a great deal of zombie style mods being made now that the Source engine is out, but with our mod we think we will be adding features to the game to make ours stand out a bit more than the others, some of which will kept secret until a later date.

We do however wish all the other mods the best of luck, we have no interest in mod wars, every mod has there own unique element that makes them special.
