Just curious: why is the melee attack of a submachinegun pierce? I'd be expecting impact (knocking down somebody with the weapon body).

I think it's one of those new bayonet submachineguns.

Because you shoot the zombie when its coming towards you.

Why don't you guys try making more relevant questions, as the alternative to not posting at all.

Looks nice so far; details like the knapsack help create the RPG atmosphere.
The horse could use a semi-transparent drop shadow, like the cows have.

Lol, I knew there was something odd-looking about the horse before but I didn't realize it was that xD.

very nice papa smurf.

i absolutely like what i see, cine i can sense some potancial -
where did you get the beds from, btw ?

btw, what about adding real-range (if you havent dont that yet) to the firearms, would be surely a very nice thing to have. of course you'd have to spend some thoughts about how it would work (can you move after shooting, how many times you can fire per round, does it cost moves to fire and such)

in any case this looks promising, and if its just for the resources included in the dl.
looking forward to it.

and .. i can say that im probably interested in supporting this mod with a MAP (or SCN better said), since i also had in mind making a horror rpg (or simply a horror SCN with RPG elements)
The best bet is your own, good Taste.

I thought of using it but if I recall the ranged era had limitations regarding the amount of weapons that a unit can have, and this RPG has many weapons, basically everything someone would want to use on a zombie. So far I got animations for submachine guns, rifles, sniper rifles, pistols, shotguns, and flamethrowers.
And I still have to figure out how to animate from scratch chainsaws, and things like that...

And yea, the idea is adding post-kill movement, like in SX, but only 1 mp instead of 3.

To tell the truth I'm quite short on resources although I'm scavenging from anywhere possible. Wesnoth doesn't have many indoors objects and finding ones that look well with the rest is difficult. I'm lacking tables, desks, a bar for the PUB, stairs going down, wooden doors and other less urgent things. So I guess I'll have to keep looking or just make them.

doors:
use the wooden walls instead

stairs:
interesting. i would like to know how the stairs are going to work in your MOD ? do you need just a "staircase.ITEM" and when stepping on a certain Hex the players are "teleported" to another floor - or do you simply want to make the impression of different heights by using "staircase-terrain" (which would be great to have i think).

interiour:
sure, more would be useful.

Not good enough.

I just need somethat looks like staircase, you step on it and get teleported.
I modified a bit the open trapdoor image and well it is good enough for the time being.

Now what I need the most are desks and a bar for the PUB.

The staircase terrain thing is overdoing it, not even worth trying.
Maybe if some graphics artists feels like helping, but there is a limit about how cool I can make things, lol.

It's just a lot of work for a single person.

I still haven't even finished furnishing all the houses with what I got, it's terribly boring.

Yea.

I found some more stuff now.

I'd definily want to play this :) you might check out zombiesquad.com (or is it .org?) and put this on their forum. Might attract some new players and they might have some tips (like weapons, descriptions , etcetera)

A little update on the progress.

-The map is about... 98% finished, it tooks a few weeks but it's done now.
-The introduction is done.
-I've got a definite plot, thinking of the side-quests and things along those lines now.
-Also trying to come up with a better name for the city, and perhaps the game too.
-Resources wise everything is alright, I got everything I needed and even more.

If anyone is interested, after I finish this, I'll upload an add-on with RPG Resources.
