Delete zs_surfacing please. Zombies can't get out from own spawn. They simply can't surface. Only normal zombie class can.

And perks reset every map, at least for support class I should re-select it every round.

 

And medics lose ammo too fast, because first, second and med kit ammo its all the same ammo, which spent too fast.

Why would you want the inconvenienceof selecting them every game?

 

Medics generally have more ammo including the new perk.

 

Removed zs_surfacing.

No, sorry, you got it wrong. My english sucks :D It wasn't a suggestion. I mean there is bug with perks. Sometimes all my support perks are deselected. Happened only for support class

 

My english is shitty and I don't really want to improve my skills. It's hard to describe things for me. Sometimes I'm just lazy to report bugs.

 

About medic: I think it's silly that medic lose med kit ammo when he shoot using rifle or pistol. And if I shoot with pistol - I lose ammo for rifle  :wacko:

Hey its kinda buggy when you carry an item you collide with it (when moving forward). maybe you can make it no collide to you but to leave it colliding with the others.

 

With the new medic perks you can rapidly heal others with +1 health. Every time you heal him a medkit sound is played. It's nice when healing without the perk, but when its faster with the perk enabled its annoying - You hear it every half second. You can make it to play another less annoying sound when this perk is enabled.

 

Howlers aren't very useful, I think. Their only ability is to scream in small radius the players are desoriented. Increasing it will be good.

 

 

Uhmm... "Create a new endgame screen." This one is really original, I think you'd better keep it as it is now.

 

Well that's all.

The current endgame screen is from the old game mode and half of the information and details listed don't pertain to anything currently. most of the hints are outdated (eat flesh to heal, most assists, etc.)

Definitely needs revision in the future after the big gameplay balancing stuff is changed imo

  • Added Necrossin's endgame screen and is currently set to allow 5 maps to vote for. This may receive further changes.
  • Diverse Ammo
    • Ammo drops are no longer a generic SMG box that give ammo to the current weapon.
    • An undead, map placed or ammo pack will randomly (this may be altered to suite that human attacker) drop an ammo of any type
    • The ammo types are:
      • Pistol box (pistol)
      • SMG box (smg)
      • AR2 clip (assault rifle)
      • AR2 Combine Ball (pyro)
      • Shotgun shells (buckshot)
      • Health vial (medical)
      • Mini hl2 ammo crate (currently for grenades/c4 if in equipped but will be changed to give ammo to everything).
    • Ammo pack can pickup any of these and throw it down again for something else.
    • Mobile supplies still gives the equipped tool/weapon ammunition.
  • Added "Energiser" tier 3 Engineer weapon. Essentially the pulse rifle but slower and deals significantly more damage.

 

Priority Todo List:

 

[High Priority]

  • Fix some text not scaling on the new loadout screen.

Endscreen now is:

 

- empty

- doesnt show useful information

- doesnt have any background, just a text with stats and the votemap section.

 

Some people say its bugged and it isnt meant to look like this. Now it looks worse than before. Restoring the old one or repairing the current should be done.

An update on current development:

I code for my work placement so I don't want to code in my spare time.

I finish my placement at the start of July.

Chances of me doing development are slim until then.

I haven't abandoned this mod.

The mod has moved on. Doing updates on this version of the mod is pointless, especially since the server is at 0 players 24/7, but do as you wish.

Hi Guys,

I've been having discussions on the current mod and its future and have came to the conclusion that moving to the new base is the right thing to do now.

The current mod has allowed me to experiment with gameplay and what I deem a green zombie survival. This knowledge and experience will be used for a new base but keeping what has always made this server unique.

Some initial points that would change from the new base:

  • Remove arsenal and resupply crate.
  • Disable bosses.
  • At wave end a headcrab canister or something will come crashing down (depending on surface or underground map) for supplies. This will be very similar to the old supply crates.
  • Undead dropping ammo.
  • Dynamic zombie spawns everywhere (similar to killing floor).
  • Human classes, each with their own leveling and xp. (similar system to what the mod currently has, it will be revised)

Let me know what your thoughts are on all the above.

Created a flare gun using Braindawg's model. Player must be looking upwards and at the skybox to fire. Shoots a bright flare really high into the air that gradually falls down. When the flare begins going down a headcrab canister is launched at that position.

An important mechanic that I have added to 3.0.

The canister will destroy anything that is about 64 units (25% more than the player width) away from it. Using the canister will cause it to open up and ammo and weapons (number and type will depend on wave) will fall out of it. This will all be up for grabs.

Anyone can then use it to gain a suitable weapon from it once it has been opened. Just hit USE again.

I will need to upload a video clip because I was impressed by the whole visuals.

Looks interesting enough, I don't see it fitting in with normal survival mode though.

BUT, we could make a Salvage Sub Gamemode like I've done with Arena mode. Instead of Supply crates.

 

Some sort of Support weapon can be created like this for players to scavenge for weapons and ammo. We could make maps for it which are open to make it have more of a purpose. Maybe even create a new zombie class for this. 

Just some food for thought.

This is part of the mod that I'm building from 3.0. I don't have any intentions to intervene with your own project.

then why do you keep working on your bland project and posting it on mr.green forums, duby's way more better optimized, tought and balanced for both sides. no offense

Duby's project is worthy to be on Mr.Green, your project has been on for a good while and almost no one comes play it, you cant pick most of the weapons down and reload animations break often and it has some serious balancing issues.

http://steamcommunity.com/id/rui_troia/screenshot/266086874785391522

 

As I've said, forget about working for a mr.green ZS/ZA pufulet, go make maps. You have some pretty good ideas and I belive you can innovate alot if you contribute to the community trough mapping :) as i've seen you've done in noxiousnet

You're the best mapper than I've seen around here and in NoXiousnet, close to Stelk's level (godlike), I think the flaregun could be used to signal carpet bombings on Duby's main Mr.Green's ZS so lets not waste your efforts.

I love you pufulet im just here to talk what is best for the community in my point of view.

 

TLDR - If you put your shitty version as official mr.green zs you should consider killing yourself, let duby take care of the situation as he knows far better what he is doing and has more dedication towards it. Please Pufulet do not ruin Mr.Green again, do a favor for the community and go back to mapping instead of coding mods.

For any of you who still care, I released an update of the following changes:

  • Various undead classes are more resilient.
  • Updated how speed/falling is handled. Overall should feel better. This covers damage and how fast you can run.
  • Updated several weapons.
  • Updated several class perks.
  • Fixed the bug where c4 could get secondary ammo.
  • Ammo pack now throws 1 unified ammo type that grants ammo to the player's current held weapon.
  • Double HP should be applied properly to the first zombies now.
  • Scaled SP requirements for new tiers to be harder to obtain.
  • All pistols are more effective to balance the change above.
