Hello Survivors! Geoff is gone today so I have no oversight on what is posted here. I can post anything I want!
The responsibility is crushing me. Let’s dive right in!
Richard as always has been hard at work picking at the brains of the zombies. The zombies are now able to react to the things they hear, see, touch, and even smell. That’s right, if you get too close to a zombie, it’ll sniff you out.
As well as that, the zombies can also play dead (Well, really dead, not just undead) so that corpse on the ground might just take a bit of your ankle if you are not careful. The corpse might also just be dinner for another zombie, as they can eat corpses.
And finally, Richard changed the aggro values for zombies based on what you’re doing, and made zombies turn more naturally, or as he calls it “smooth turn on mode transition”
Grant has changed the default player model to our new one. What does this mean for you? Not much actually. The new model has new weighting and rigging which makes it look better over all. It also fixed issues with the fingers and some other things that looked wonky.
Chaoss has been hard at work making towns, and the buildings for towns. You’ve seen what he’s been doing in previous Weekly Deads, but what I’m about to show you should get you excited.
He has placed the roads down, and will texture them soon.
If you are anything like me, your hype is building. I know that I am personally excited to walk down those streets.
If you’ve noticed in previous Weekly Dead posts, the buildings were missing backs, and insides. Part of how Chaoss was building the town. The above image shows a complete building, with collision inside, rooms in the back, bathroom, everything you could want out of a building. Things are happening guys. Really happening.
And here is a picture of a true monster tormenting some helpless zombies.
Horrifying stuff, so bad that we may have to remove that dread creature from the game.
The section containing this sentence is the weekly reminder that both Geoff Keene and Richard do livestreams every now and then on twitch.
We’ve created a team twitch page that includes Chaoss’s profile, no longer banned by twitch for the heinous crime of being British but not using Virgin as his ISP.
Be sure to follow us @TheDeadLinger for more development news!
Linger on, Survivors!
