Icarus' "Doom Mod Madness" video featuring ZOMBIES:EEE
(note: video is using older version and does not reflect recent changes)
[About ZOMBIES: Extreme Epidemic Edition]
This is a modification of ZOMBIES TC, a pretty much ancient and outdated total conversion for Doom II.
Aside from packaging this mod up nicely for use with ZDoom, this also adds a few new features and fixes
not in the original mod, such as:
- New realistic looking sky textures! (Looks best in GZDoom)
- HORDES of zombies! Where there was one zombie before, there are now up to ten! Fight your way through swarms of the undead!
- Speaking of zombies, zombie enemies now act like zombies! Good ol' slow lumbering rotting Romero-style zombies!
- Cops and unarmed civilians are now friendly! Cops attack enemies! Civilians....well, are pretty much zombie chow!
- Weapons redone in DECORATE! New sprites by ZikShadow!
- High quality music from both the American and European cuts of Dawn of the Dead! Extra sounds and ambient effects from Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead!
- When humans (friendlies, rockers) die, they now rise and join the rotting ranks of the undead!
- You can now choose to play as a cop, biker, or thug! (Really the only differences are what weapons you start with)
- 8 player starts for co-op multiplayer!
- A new inventory system
- Various fixes and tweaks

NOTE: Although it is possible to play this with ZDoom, it is best to use GZDoom, as my modified graphics are in PNG and look like shit when played in ZDoom
As of v3.0, this now works in Zandronum
Due to changes, crouching is required and autoaim is recommended to be shut off.
SLADE, Photoshop CS6, WhackEd

MIDI files now in base pk3s - no need for separate patch
Various tweaks to Dehacked and DECORATE
UPDATE- version 1.5
NEW INVENTORY SYSTEM!
The powerups have been tweaked to be in an inventory like Heretic! There are 7 new items that can be picked up and used whenever you want!
Gas Mask - Travel through hazardous environments!
Night Vision Goggles - See in dark places!
Surgical Kit - Portable health!
Adrenaline - Quick power boost! Tear through zombies!
Cocaine - Illegal drugs! 45 second speed boost!
Morphine - Powerful painkiller! Reduces damage taken, but distorts vision!
and my personal favorite
Zombie Guts - Smear some of this on you to repel enemies for 10 seconds!
The gas mask and n/v goggles replace their respective original powerups, so can be found in-game, but are also rarely dropped by cops. Cops can also (once again,rarely) drop surgical kits, adrenaline, or morphine. Thugs/Bikers can drop all of those, minus the goggles and gas mask, but also occasionally drop cocaine. Zombies drop zombie guts, obviously.
Fixed grenade sprite and revolver pickup sprites
Player classes now start with a few items, varying by class
Removed easy version
Various decorate tweaks

I have added 5 extra songs for future use Please replace zombies-mp3.pk3 with zombies-ogg.pk3
