The Zombie Apocalypse

By

Buddajr


The Virus hit hard and fast. Millions turned into Zombies almost overnight, and those who were immune now are the prey to these mindless beasts. Does your team have what it takes to survive the Zombie Apocalypse?

The Zombie Apocalypse is a unique Zombie experience that combines teamwork and skill to create a fun and challenging experience. Players must work together and utilize all their talents and professions in order to achieve victory. The key element to this game is randomness. All spawns, talents, professions, weapons, and events are randomized to assure a new experience every time you play.

Professions and Talents
Every male survivor has their own professions and talent. Talents generally are combat related and will help your character fight while professions are all about survival. Some of the professions will create useful items for your people while others will provide useful effects. Every profession and talent will level up as your survivor gains combat experience and kills zombies. The most important aspect of this map is utilizing your professions and talents in order to benefit the group as a whole.

Currently there are 10 professions and 10 talents.
  • Construction: Builds defensive buildings to defend your people
  • Craftsmen: Builds useful weapons, armors, and tools to aid you in combat
  • Engineer: Builds modifications to improve your weaponry
  • Munitions: Builds explosive designed to make decimate zombies
  • Reloader: Reloads ammunition for your weapons
  • Physician: Heals wounded survivors
  • Fertility: What can you say? He’s attractive and fertile…increases population
  • Biotech: Creates helpful medical items for your people
  • Survival: Has priceless wilderness knowledge and abilities to aid your people
  • Chemist: Uses toxic compounds to destroy zombies

Supplies
Supplies are central to your people's survival. Every turn you need a minimum amount of supplies for each survivor or your villagers will starve to death. Supplies can be found by searching houses, random events, fishing, growing crops, mining ore, or killing pigs and sheep. Supplies also are used to create most of the useful items that each profession can provide. Having a booming economy is central to achieving victory.

Zombies
The Zombie spawn system has been completely revamped. The virus now starts in the Lab area where the infernal disease was created. The virus will attempt to spread to new areas over time, creating virus pools so that the virus can add to its army. Each new base will continue to grow in strength and size the longer they remain, and they also will help the virus spread even faster. Will you risk valuable people trying to fight the spread of disease, or will you just try and outlast the ever growing horde? Either way, zombies crave the succulent taste of women flesh and will attack you every night.

There are now new types of special zombies that spawn depending on the region where the virus has spread.
  • Docks: The docks regions now spawn the dreaded Reaver Zombie. This half fish, half man creature is a much more terrifying hunter.
  • Farm: The farm regions now spawn a mutated sheep called a Boomer. This ticking time bomb explodes upon death dealing damage to everything around it.
  • Graveyard: The virus reanimates the bones of long dead corpses, creating extremely endurable skeletal zombies.
  • Small Towns: The Small Town provide extra bodies for the virus to corrupt, creating extra spawns of normal zombies.

Reproduction
Women are the key to reproduction. Every so often, randomly, women will deliver babies. Even if your male survivor is killed, your female survivor can still deliver a child assuming there are some other male survivors left (the survivors have loose morals), so keep your women safe. Women can also carry items and backpacks.

Weapons
Your survivors can pick up various weapons to boost their combat effectiveness. However, guns require ammo to shoot so you will need to pick up ammo to use your new weapon. The game features a custom reloading script which makes survivors automatically reload when needed.
As of Version 1.30, there are 13 different weapons:
Hatchet, Knife, Chainsaw, AK-47, M240, SPAS-12, W1200, 9mm, Desert Eagle, Intervention, .50cal, FAMAS, and the M16.
Each of the weapons can also be modified in several different ways, giving a huge variety of possibilities.

*Note: I don’t know that much about weapons, however I do obviously realize that not all pistols use the same ammo, and that not all shotguns use the same ammo, etc. However, for the purpose of simplicity I have kept the ammo types generic.

Victory
Will you bunker down and try and outlast the horde or will you attempt to destroy the massive overlord that controls them all? The choice is yours, good luck.

I would appreciate any comments and suggestions so that I can make the game more enjoyable.

Future updates might be a little more scarce as I’m currently in the middle of another project. However, I want to continue to improve the map, so I appreciate any comments, reviews, and feedback you have.

Changes:

1.30:
New Skin for Reanimated Bones
New Spitter Model
New Skin for Reaver
Changed Zombie icons
Added 6 new weapons and changed much of the old ones
Changed the weapon mod system
Added Reloading
Different weapons have different movement speeds
Torches and campfires are now built instantly but there can only be 1 campfire and 8 torches on the map at one time
Added more to craftsmen class
Changed beginning conditions - Players now start in center of city with random weapons and gear

1.24:
Greatly increased the difficulty of hard and insanity mode
Lowered health of Tank
New Special Zombies

1.23:
Fixed major bug with backpack that crashed the game. The backpack can no longer select items within the units inventory
Women now have an inventory. They can’t use weapons but can still carry other items and backpacks
Fixed bug when attempting to pick up a weapon with a man that has a weapon already equipped

1.01:
Fixed minor bug with neutral creatures setting of events
Minor Improvements to terrain

Plans:
Adding new victory condition, bug fixes, balancing issues

Notes:
Crafting Professions use a spellbook system to store craftable items. Unfortunately, because of the way the spellbook ‘spell’ works, there is button used to cycle through the various items. It’s a little crude right now but works perfectly fine. I’ll continue to look for a better work around.

Crafting Professions also take time to create their items. If you order your survivor to create a barricade be a little patient, it takes time to build!

    Autohost

    I've been auto hosting your map across battle.net, and it has been pretty popular.

    I thought you had quit warcraft 3, but I never touched or claimed your map. If you wish for me to take it down I will.

    I found this map very fun and very difficult, it probably didn't help that there was only 2 of us playing but still. Also, where the hell is the water bucket? I looked all over the farm for one and found nothing but animals and crops.

    5/5 and +rep :)

    No, please keep hosting it. I can't host myself so I'm happy others are.
    Water bucket can be built by the munitions class (converted flamethrower I presume).

    The crop die too fast,chainsaw too power full, class makebaby is too weak - if i drop or pick weapon then skill of this class cd, sniper yet damage low,assault gun 30 round yet only 10 mana,map too large yet not many place to def,no build class = gg game,killer buff weak than other,survival class useless reveal,fire cap unfinished can heal lol, if i having 2 man having miss + one with build barricade then win game in all mode
    why don't u make spell book better easy too use, just use level of spell book to make the time finish the item,building construction class hard to build correct place if any unit stay there...
    the birth of baby, pig, sheep is imbalance ( some game i got 40 pig only with 5 min but some game 30 minute still so-so )
    make mode for two - three people...
    btw, make captured animal don't run around anymore, it hard to control ( i build a whole wall for them )
    overlord is out power full, i buidl 10 man with miss + block damage level 3 + metal armor still can tank the overlord

    Btw2, This game petty easy if u got a chainsaw early, use unit having chainsaw to kill zombie building in early game ( this make zombie can spawning in mid game )

    gameplay
    bases
    systems

    Plant seeds in the ground, then way for the plant to turn green and water it with a watering can. Do this until the plant becomes an item that you can pick up called "Full grown wheat".

    First off, most of the models used can be found here on the hive. Second, to edit them you would first need permission from the makers of the models.
