    I hope no one did such an request before me.
    Wouldn´t it be cool, if there are Zombies on Panau and Attacking you?
    I mean it is not impossible – You could change the Skin and I`ve seen some mods on this Side where the factions are attacking you-I think you could easily do this to the residents, too.
    Besides, you could leave one fraction as humans and then they are fighting against each other.:ohmy:

    The mod about the fractions is this one:

    http://www.justcause2mods.com/index.php/mods/other/Gameplay/Factions-attack-you/

    I would do this but I´m just there for Design and Stuff and I hate Numbers-I´m just no Programmer. :cheer:

    every game needs a zombie mod, i support this.

  • #85225

    I support this idea as well and would love to help in whatever way possibly if someoen could show me the ropes on faction editing.

  • #85227

    For now use the WW2 units as zombies
    :D

  • #85229

    Forgive me sir, but to what WW2 units do you refer?

    I love the idea of zombies, but not armed…

    Yes, I also know it would be a big work to make pedestrians hostile :blush:

    The main idea of getting a zombie npc to work with it’s ai is followed:

    – Movement speed (slow speed, but can quickly dash if it’s target is close enough)
    – Animations (walking, sprinting, melee attacking)
    – Attacks (only melee attacks are involved, does heaps of damage)
    – Faction related scripts (Can turn pedestrians into zombies? Heals if they kill a npc? All other factions prioritize zombies as the biggest threat?)
    – Able to take bullets to the body, but dies easily with shots to the head.
    – Can gib?

    Say, what if you want pedestrians to do one of several things if they spot a zombie?

    1) Cower in one spot.
    2) Flee and scream.
    3) If armed, fight zombie(s).

    So what if they are inside a vehicle?

    1) Get out of the car immediately, then do one of the top listed actions.
    2) Speeds up and runs over the zombie, continuing to drive away.
    3) Avoids zombies, and drives away.

    I dont think that Just cause 2 is the kind of game that has zombies in it but if you did have that they should hae their own island. Also when you finish the main storyline Baby Panay could come back as a zombie

  • #85540

    Whaaat, you don`t want Zombies in your Game?
    Buddy, you`re in the wrong Thread. ;)
    But I had an similar idea with that island
    – but I thought that it would be more difficult to create an whole new island,
    btw no one has done that before, too.:huh:
    But if there would be such an island, it shall be a smaller one.But big enough for an special building: the Bio-Gas-Kind-of-tower.
    You know, it looks like an cylindric rocket, but it is several levels beyond earth so there are just about 30 meters over the ground and when you go down, there is an console where you can destroy the whole thing and green mist appears and you run like “Oh my, I hope it doesn`t explodes while I`m down here” 😆 .
    I know that one (?) surely was at the desert island.
    After this explosion there are everywhere Zombies and, surely, the surviving fractions haet you and shoot you and the Zombies.How `bout that?:woohoo:

    I’m for the idea of having zombies in the game :cheer:

  • #85107

    if a zombie mod is possible this will make more like the game DEAD ISLAND which is sweet wish it is first person both vehicles and on foot really looking forward to this idea…

  • #85108

    Needs head explosions.

  • #85109

    It should be possible, what if you just made the military look like zombies, get rid of civilians, up the number of military personnel, hardest part would probably be making them use a melee attack, but maybe they could use something similar to Rico’s melee attack?

  • #85110

    jonah
    Member

    hhhmmmmm for the skins maybe you could use one of the dead rico skins. oh and you could mutate the melee arm to the range of the attack so it would look like it was swiping at you

    It is possible to replace the civilians with other types of characters… we just need a useless character that nobody cares about to make a zombie out of… *looks over at Karl Blaine*

    I have made some zombie skins for some of the civilians. They are just skins, but we can do some hex editing (aka, entering random numbers into the cdoll files) later. I’ll submit the skins as a zombays in panau mod after I check to make sure they don’t crash the game.

  • #85112

    I like the idea of mowing down hundreds of undead Karl Blains.

    What faction do you want that will be the humans?
    I vote for the Reapers!
    They have big trucks with turret!

    BOLO will win :P

  • #85115

    Joe Gold
    Member

    If at all possible, feel free to take out a civilian skin or two as well. The Reapers will be the best choice for the human faction, as they have big armored trucks. You can also use the Japanese Zombie skins (there are about 3/5 of them, so together with 2/3 civilians and one Karl Blaine skin, we’ll get a good variety of zombies – maybe some with a broken/missing limb?).

    Writing the AI code will prove to be the hardest part, but I’m sure you’ll manage. Try getting the admins to open up a forum so we can work out this mod in an orderly fashion. I don’t mind helping with the script, though I never programmed anything in 3d but I’m sure I’ll manage with prioritizing the AI’s reactions towards zombies/military/player.

  • #90688

    8thor8
    Member

    yeah, that’s good. It might also work if we try to create a faction called “zombies”. then I know how we can get everybody to attack them. editing the AI code will be the hardest part. we may even have to create new files to make it work…

  • #85116

    We should see if we can make civilians attack like the factions mod did, or completely get rid of civilian spawn and replace it with lots of military spawn, who have been re textured to look like zombies. Hardest part would probably be getting the military to use a melee attack instead of guns.

    Ah… no. This will render the game completely boring and repetitive, as your only option is to kill waves upon waves upon waves of zombies until you get sick of it and leave.

  • #85117

    Maybe, but all other options seem like they would require lots and lots of coding. I’m trying to think of stuff we’ve already learned about modding this game and see if they can be applied to create a zombie apocalypse version of Panau.

  • #85118

    Joe Gold
    Member

    But you have to keep in mind that it’s gotta be playable. It’s just as big of a mod as IronMan, even bigger (requires a lot more skinning and handling AI).

    There’s no other way than re-skinning and stuff. I say we try to take a go at it.

    if theres a mod to make civilians attack cant u reskin the civilians to look like zombies and make them really slow so ur not constantly having to run for your life.

  • #85120

    Joe Gold
    Member

    but there aren’t much civilian skins (like, 3 for males and 3 for females). We DO want civilians in our mod to act as bait and stuff.

    Skins we can use:
    Karl Blaine
    Ninja
    Baby Panay
    Suggest more

  • #85121

    steven
    Member

    how many diff kinda of zombies do u want?

  • #90749

    Just the one standard zombie type would be best, with some different skins so it doesn’t look too repetitive, maybe, just maybe, a tank type zombie? Like how Baby (SPOILER) is able to absorb 39,498 bullets to the head before partially collapsing.

  • #85122

    Joe Gold
    Member

    Come to think of it, we have the ninjas, panay, blaine, jap-zombies, Jade Tan (females zombies are a great thing) and maybe one of the factions? Or two?

    Let’s call it a vote: How many factions should fight the zombie outbreak?
    Options are:
    1) Just the military and Rico
    2) Military, Rico and the Reapers (they have armored trucks)
    3) Military, Rico and Ulars/Roaches
    4) Military, Rico and all factions to fight the zombies
    5) Military, Rico and all factions, along SOME lightly-armed civilians at random spots

    I, personally, vote for 5.

    Other skins we can gladly use:
    Razor of the Roaches
    Bolo of the Reapers
    The guy calling you ‘Serdadu’ all the time, of the Ulars
    Ulars, Roaches and Reapers’s TECHNICIANS because their skins aren’t being used anyway

    The more diversity, the better. I also think we should import zombie skins from Prototype, just like this guy did with the Alex Mercer skin for Rico. It should save us tons of work and let us focus on the AI.

  • #85123

    Alex
    Member

    I’m waiting for this mod with inpatient

  • #85124

    The more different skin types the better, as for the voting, I wouldn’t mind option 5. The prototype zombies should work too.

    Also, I had an idea, I say we should have the Mile High Club be some sort of survivor outpost.

  • #85125

    Joe Gold
    Member

    That’s a great idea! We can also use several other outposts such as high up in the mountains (the top of the Casino Falls should be great, zombies wandering down below and a big cluster of civvies and militants up top shooting at zombies like in Dawn of the Dead).

    We should create at least one survivor outpost for each factions we’ll use (military bases aside). The Ulars’ fort will also be a good spot.

    How about using cournels as the zombies? They only die if you shoot them in the head or blow them up.. much like zombies, yes?

    What are cournels?

  • #90928

    Aria pordel

    I have an idea.We can turn outposts into infected hives like Prototype.

  • #90929

    I believe Dragonya meant colonels, which is an interesting idea for a zombie that shows up occasionally, but to use them as the default zombie? Sorry, but I like mowing down hordes of the undead with a mini-gun too much to worry about aiming for their head.

    How’s the progress coming along? I know Thor said he was working on some textures, and now D.O.M.I.N.A.T.O.R. is too, guess we now need someone who’s good with the coding part.

    Dammit I just cant get it right! The movements are VERY weird and the speed SUCKS!! I will try some more and If I dont get it right I will not post anything. RE: 4 years technical modding experience and texturial.

  • #91255

    How are you doing the movements? Are you using the pre-existing melee attack from the player’s character or something else entirely?

  • #85133

    You can say that but trying to make from scratch. (PS: Played 32 zombie games for three days for inspiration.) Another thing, who are we giving the textures and codes to when we are finished to upload? Hoe_Om_Selfmoord_Te_Pleeg.gif

    You can send it to me, and I’ll be sure to gather it up. We also need a scripter to mess with the A.I… I think I know a guy who can do that.

    i think its fine
    also can we have two versions: one where rico is a human and fights against the zombs :police: (#1) and (yes you guessed it) one where rico is a zombie and fights with the zombs against the humans 👿 (#2)
    it will be hard to make rico use only melee though, but we can always just use melee and ignore the guns in ricos hand.

    but i dont want this to get in the way of the zombie mod so do the #2 one after the main mod

  • #85137

    Joe Gold
    Member

    Might not be a great idea. Just Cause 2 isn’t built for hand-to-hand combat (maybe a Matrix/GTA game would fit better), it’s built for rampaging and exploding the shit out of everything. If you can’t make it go ‘BOOM!!!’, it ain’t fun. If you can’t explode dozens of people seven generations away in mere seconds, it ain’t fun. If you have to slumber around distinct jungles, ghostly villages and humanly deserted cities for hours on end only to be picked off by a bored sniper on top of some building or find out you’ve been rolled out into a 16-feet puddle of dry blood and crushed bones by the random SUV maniac, it sure as hell ain’t fun.

    And yeah, THAT’S a lot of text. Still, no one here is a dyslectic 7-year-old, we can handle texts.

    About the picture above – it’s awesome! Really, I love it. It’s as funny as it is creative and it’s obvious it took quite some time to make out. GJ!!
    How about the animations and code though? I’m waiting eagerly to see it. Also, if you have the knowledge of putting it in-game, would you like to make a demonstration-video for us?

  • #91281

    fair enough, but i had another idea. can you make it so there are zombies that look like the strippers from the mile high club (oviously with zombie features like pale skin etc.) to make it more realistic like in some zombie games?
