Hello all, I was away for a few months after frustrations about the lack of Multiplayer Modding abilities with Crysis 2. Here I am again and by the look of things there is still only 1 released mod (build mod) for Multiplayer Crysis 2... which is sad.
Nonetheless I am back again looking to find a programmer to help me finish this mod.Concept of the Mod:
First off you need to know this is a SMALL mod, and is really just a custom game-mode. When it is completed, players should be able to install it and play straight away without downloading massive files.
This mod has been in the workings since last year and is the first Multiplayer Zombie/Survival mod created for Crysis 2 and the Cryengine 3 as far as I know.
Now before you read further, I know what your thinking. Yes there have already been threads posted on zombie mods on the CE3 already, but IMO I just don't see them being completed and they are just ideas mixed in with a bunch of pointless models and guns to get you excited. Most, if not all of these Mods are also Singleplayer.
Battling it out against computer zombies is all well and fun but quickly gets predictable and just aint as thrilling as versing zombies played by real people.
This Mod is based loosely around previous zombie mods for other games. I was inspired mainly by the zomdb mod created for Call Of Duty 4 back in the day. This was my favorite mod of all time and I had so much fun and sleepless nights playing it. This small mod IMO was better and more fun than any full game actually dedicated to zombies like L4D.Gameplay
At the beginning of the round, all players will spawn on the Hunters team (Marines) and will have a set number of seconds to go find a good spot to hide or camp. After that number of seconds, 1 random person from the Hunters team(US) will be selected to become the first zombie and switched to the other team (CELL) and begin the infection. Furthermore any player that joins after this or dies by any means will also spawn as a zombie.
Simply, the Zombie Teams goal is to kill all players of the Hunters team. Zombies cannot pickup or hold weapons and will only attack using melee which will be 1 shot kill. When a Hunter dies either as the result of being killed by a zombie or falling off a building, they will respawn as a Zombie.
When the Zombies have killed all players of the Hunters team, Zombies win the round. If the round time ends and there is atleast 1 player still left alive from the Hunters team, then Hunters win the round.More Features Id like to eventually Integrate but are not essential
- The last Hunter left alive will gain higher health, regenerating health and possibly a powerful gun.
- Hunters will gain money from each kill and can purchase better weapons
- Players will have Ranks and unlock new items at higher levels
- Hunters will be able to deploy Mines which detonate when Zombies step on them
- Zombies will have some special abilities
- Zombies can throw skulls/knives/limbs etc..Mod Team
The team currently consists of just me and a few testers. I am wanting to find a PROGRAMMER to help write the gamerules for this mod. If this one small task can be complete then the mod is 90% FINISHED !
I am thinking it will be easier to simply modify the Team Deathmatch rules seen as this mod is just based off that with some changes.
Here is a example of some custom gamerules if you need an idea of what to do:http://www.crydev.net/wiki/index.php/Robbery_GametypeSampleXx.ProGaMeR.xX

Although I am mainly looking for a programmer, I welcome anybody to the team who can help, wether it be Level Design, Marketing, Recruitment or Scripters. PM me if your keen and we will have something for you to do.
Testers: Whenever we make significant progress in this mod we will have testing sessions on our private server. If you would like to become a tester and be notified of our testing sessions, please inbox me.Some of the work So Far/screenshots:
