Survivalism (DayZ / Rust Inspired) - Now with Persistent Inventory

#1

Post by haxmurderer » Tue Jan 28, 2014 3:33 am

Hey guys,

I've been working on a WAD about rainbows and unicorns zombie revenants and pinkies. Or something like that.

"Survivalism" is my attempt to create a DayZ-like world in the Doom engine, where you're trying to scavenge items to survive in a wasteland. It features randomly spawning monsters and loot across the map, with a handful of weapons that you find to help you survive.

Check out the screenshots below or just jump onto a server to get better idea of it! :cool:

Features:
  • Dynamic day/night cycle
  • Construction - build Minecraft-style bases
  • Chop down trees with an axe to get wood or mine rocks for stone
  • Crafting
  • Persistent Inventory (new with Zandronum 1.3) - Servers can save your stuff!
  • Zombies attack your base!
  • Dynamic monster spawner and loot
  • Turnip farming
  • Chickens
  • Random hard bad guys that drop better guns :)
  • Two maps: doomz1, doomz2
  • Pinky creepers :wink:

Tips:
  • Hit F1 for a quick guide.
  • Don't let the pinkies get too close to you
  • Wood/stone boxes can be reclaimed by attacking them with an axe.

I was going to make a mod just like this also inspired by DayZ. Looks like you beat me to it. :smile:

This looks cool. If you are looking for more inspiration, I suggest playing 'Sir, you are being hunted'.

This modification looks excellent and something that many could enjoy. For future releases, you should use different zombie (or monster) sprites to offer some variety to the gameplay.

Thanks for the words of encouragement, guys! :)

I just completely rewrote the monster / loot spawning algorithm to be a bit more challenging, and it should hopefully cut the lag way way down too.

Unholypimpin: You can't put roofs on the bases yet, but I'm going to try to add that soon. Need roofs and doors. :D In theory you should be able to attach blocks to the side of other blocks, but something's not working the way I thought in the algorithm for that stuff so that part isn't working. (If that was working, you'd be able to build roofs already.) Worst case, I'll try to add some skinny pillars in that you'll be able to stack a roof on top of. Does that sound alright?

Dr.Robotnik: Yes! I have some ideas for how to make the monster combat a lot more interesting and terrifying. The zombies are just the beginning...

Lord_of_D: I think hunger/thirst mechanics are lame, so I probably won't do that. I wouldn't mind adding farming but only as a way to grow more resources or get health. I'm not sure what I think about bandaging and all that stuff. Could be OK but I wouldn't want to go overboard with it and make it super complicated and annoying. I'm open to suggestions though.

CloudFlash: I've always wanted to try that game, it looks so good. I really have to try it out now!

Next stuff for me:
- Improving the map
- Roofs and doors for bases
- Tweaking everything
- More items, weapons, loot
- New bad guys

If I have time, I'd like to get the roofs and doors for bases done this weekend. If I can swing that, I'll drop a new release and update the server for everyone to test. It'd be good to see if the new monster spawner gets rid of the lag too. :)

P.S. Someone built an awesome base above the canyon on the server. Made me super happy.

I actually think a hunger mechanic would be really good for this mod. I remember last time I was on the server it was too easy to avoid the zombies/monsters and there was no reason to get out of the safe spots, aside from fighting off hoards keeping me not-bored. If you don't introduce a mechanic that gives players reason to venture away from safe zones, at least make the zombies/monsters able to get into said safe zones. Actually, instead of introducing a hunger system, you could try making missions that randomly appear in the world, said missions could grant cool bonuses.

That would be cool. YOU HAVE 10 SECONDS TO KILL 3 REVENANTS IN A ROW OR YOU DON'T GET $200 HURRY WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE


Also this mod really needs an M1 Garand. D:

Sky Houses!: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2lnekbl ... u3qWj1dXyo
To make a sky house quickly press "use" twice and the boxes will collide with each other thus making them stay in the air.

P.S: You could make a day and night system so that when its night hoards of enemies come and having a house makes them easier to fend off. Also can you aded more uses for houses, but in all GREAT IDEA! I cannot wait to see this complete and on servers.

r2 is out! I added more crap for building bases, though the "box placer" gun is still only for placing boxes. I updated my first post with a brief changelog. 4avenger5, you will be pleased with the new sky house-building potential. :)

I'm playing with the day/night cycle. The thing with Minecraft is that there IS something to do indoors at night, other than just hiding from bad guys - you mine! So I might expand that aspect when I do the day/night cycle. What else can I add to make it fun to stay in your base?

Ænima / AkumaKing: I'm totally down for the mission system. :) I'm gonna think about how to implement that...

Thanks again for all the feedback, guys. Keep the ideas coming and have fun on the server!

This mod is awesome and has a lot of potential, i do think you should make it so you walk a little faster though. i found myself sprinting the whole time, i dont know a whole lot about doom moding but i think it would be cool if you made the walking speed faster and made it so there was a sprint bar so you need to save it for when you really need to get away. Other than that making new sprites just for this mod would make it look real nice but i imagine that comes later. Also if your looking for ideas on what to make the construction gun look like check out temperature guns.

Hey, just joined an empty server and saw this:

Might need a script to clear that variable upon both player death and disconnect. Is it everybody's time or just that player's?

Hey guys, thanks for all the feedback and suggestions! I've added a bunch more stuff that you guys suggested. :)

I've added this to the first post, but also pasting it here to bump the thread (hope that's OK):
New in February 17, 2014 Update (r4):
  • Day/night cycle! Harder zombies (Incarnates) at night and more of em!
  • New weapons: Bow and SSG
  • Special monsters: Hell Knight and Baron of Hell, dropping the Yellowboy and SSG respectively
  • Some night zombies may decide to beat the crap out of your base. :lol:
  • Armor
Anyone have any ideas about what you'd like to see next?

P.S. I forgot to fix that timer thing Ænima... thanks for pointing it out! XD
