Default Zombie Panic: Source released

Wow this mod is crazy fun! I normally lose interest in mods after a few hours, but this has me hooked. I found it to be surprisingly polished as well. I suggest you all try it out!

About Zombie Panic:

The basic idea of the Zombie Panic is to create solid game play that is based on a classic zombie outbreak scenario, the living dead are coming for the last remaining humans, and these survivors must fight them off and live through the day.

The game works like this:

Everyone joins a server, in the beginning you can either choose to join the human team or you can volunteer to be the first zombie. If no one volunteers the game will pick one human randomly and the game begins. The starter zombie's goal is to, of course kill the humans while the human goal is to stay alive as long as possible, complete objectives, or even wipe out all the zombies. The catch is that when a human is slayed he will simply join the ranks of the undead, now ready to finish off his old living teammates.
The humans can't tell by the player list who's alive and who's not, eventually there will only be one survivor still standing if all goes wrong, facing all the zombies which use to be allies, with his back to a wall. The zombies only have a certain number of reinforcements (lives), when a zombie is killed they lose 1 life from the counter. However, when a human is killed they gain 1 life. If the zombies only have 1 respawn left the humans can win the round by killing off the remaining undead left on the map.

That sounds awesome.

Downloading now.

Hopefully its better than the "Fistful of Frags" mod I downloaded a little while ago. It's the first beta but its pretty weak.

I have to give this a try too, looks like fun.

EDIT: Just played for a bit, good fun if you have a good human team to start. Voip works fine, zombies are tough to stop so serious human teamwork is needed. I like it.

Just played it a bit. Wasn't real impressed.

Zombies move so slow you're pretty much dead automatically if a human sees you and has ammunition, but the team still wins most of the time because zombies respawn and humans don't. Its just incredibly boring to play the zombies.

The human part doesn't seem too bad except that you have to play a zombie anyway if you die.

And for some reason there are 75 trillion players and almost every server is full. I did manage to get into 2 different servers, but every single person was flooding the voice com talking about stupid crap. That shouldn't really have anything to do with the game, but I have only heard a few people do this in the past few months of playing tf2. With this game, it was entire servers of 12-16 people just blabbering on and on, mimicking beavis and butthead, talking about tv shows or saying "braaaains" so loud that the speakers were crackling...

I'll try it again later. Hopefully these people all go to bed so I can actually hear the freaking game.

It's a western themed thing. It might be good some day but right now it just isn't fun.
