I'm not entirely sure what this is meant to be, but it sounds good and you sound of a professional?

Well, picture this.. Dead island with a nazi zombie crossover, apart from you have the option to kill or work with your team mates :) and I may be new to the site but i've had a few years backed up behind me, this isn't the only project ive worked on so I understand a lot (not all) about mapping and scripting for this engine :)

Well i'll be sure to keep my eyes peeled on this and any testing news.

So this is basically a "total conversion" mod? Like it uses the assets of [email protected] but not the traditional zombies setup? So can we expect to see rounds, mystery box, ect or is this something completely new? Either way, this is probably the coolest thing I've seen on UGX, the screenshots look really nice!

Well, i'm keeping all the old stock scripts from the der riese package (e.g. mystery box, teleporters [maybe], and perk system) to keep it enjoyable for everyone but ive added a few user-created (some by me) content to go that extra mile. with the standalone version of this mod I introduced ai pathing for friendly ai's to assist you to different locations (no further animation was done since it was only a test) and it runs smoothly. The final outcome of this mod is to give a singleplayer/multiplayer deathmatch experience within a zombie mod on a massive scale. I'm now currently scripting a side mission where a soldier is trapped on a train, your job is to kill the surrounding zombies and set him free.. a lot like what they did on dead island. The only downfall on this map would be the lack of detail, there's only so much you can add before it lags.

So it's a campaign kind of map, like Trazit, only better  ;). So if this was gonna be multiple chapters before, but you decided to merge them into one map, then how long will each playthrough be (roughly)? Oh, and I think a good solution to the lag problem would be two versions of the map - Lite (less detail) and Full (all detail)

Yeah exactly! well only one person has tested chapter one (standalone) and that took a good 40 minutes, chapter two took 25 minutes w/o its extension :p chapter three is really small so that one could be quick to complete but its in tight areas so theres a higher chance you could die. chapter five is by far the longest one though (if i can include that into the huge map since it was a "gone-back-in-time" sort of map, towards the beginning of the outbreak. by my prediction, since there are a lot of doors on that map you can buy, and a mean a lot! it could take you around a good 2 hours or so to complete. ps. its also a headmess map, your character starts to go crazy and weird stuff happens. the map will be reshaped and it will make it even more challenging for you to finish (you'll see what i mean when you play it) but the story will make sense in the next few seasons :p

ps. just included a bonus chapter into the big map, chapter seven is now amongst one, two, three and six :p messy chapter layout but ive worked out that seven works better before four :)

And for the lite and full build, yeah i will include that :)

The main focus of this mod was to bring a new singleplayer experience to zombies from a co-operative view.

That's just confusing, I don't get it ??? ???

Well its all down to how creative I am with detail now, im pretty much done with the lite version now; just a ton of scripts and maybe integrate the pathed ai system (if i have enough time). if you want you can test the overall map layout if youre interested? i need to see if it can cope with 4 players without causing new bugs :p

i may be wrong here but have you got 1 zone over the whole map? if so do you have any buy-able doors in the map? and if so you really need to spilt the map up with more zones

Sorry i forgot to say, its broken up into 8 zones, theres around 13 doors/debris which cover the whole map, avoids long zombir waiting times :)

I'd suggest recoloring the dynamic_water patch to black as white doesnt look good.
Other than that, the update looks awesome :D

May i ask how you would do that? ive never recoloured water textures before :p i'm guessing its to do with the overall light map (e.g. glow tweaks etc..) but ill give it a shot! :) ps. beta out tomorrow night (GMT+ London time) just to let you know ;)

I'm quite new here so i dont have "edit" options enabled to make it beta available, i'll contact a mod to do it for me :p Yeah there will be limits for the time being since its only a beta so its more of a focus on what people think of the overall layout before I put together a more detailed version of it. just hope things run smoothly once released :)

It's because i delayed it for the time being because when i handed it out to the first two testers (one off this site and another on) they both came back and said there were some major problems with coop and solo so I needed to address these before sending it out to everyone. i added a notice when this happened on the main post but I will contact you shortly with a date and we'll sort things from there. it should hopefully be fit for gameplay by this weekend :)

Mute grenades - as seen in advanced warfare, these are used just like a grenade but instead of damaging the zombies, it causes them to become confused giving you the 10 seconds needed to get out of a crowded area. In other words, a better and more efficient version of monkey bombs.

Sounds like they will work similarly to the way emps worked on zombies in bo2...with the exception of the zombies waking back up from the emp blast if you sprint, jump, dolphin dive, or shoot
Looks good. I can't wait to give this a run through. I can already tell, that when it does come out I'm going to be putting hours into it.

i 100% agree

I'm looking forward to releasing the full version of this, but as every other project i do. i want it to be at a great standard where i can release it and not feel like ive missed something out. Thats what the pre-beta and beta is for, its to allow you guys to see what you like/dislike and take suggestions from everyone to make this map have that special feeling you wouldn't get in many other maps. Of course, the aim is to make it fun and less complicated but over time you'll understand that when new ideas are introduced they never always fit perfectly into the gameplay so by continuously experimenting I can achieve that. Obviously the wait will always kill but when its released i'm sure it will be worth it! i can assure you that if it does get positive feedback it won't be the only map i will be doing, ive got some bigger plans for next season that you may like ;)

For anyone who wants to know what I have to go through so far, here's a "to do" list until the pre-beta is ready and its yet to be updated :)

- AI xanims on ai thrower
- Coop backgrounds and cinematics
- Solo cinematics
- more weapon spawns
- zone 3 spawners autokill (railyard)
- removal of peacekeeper (temp)
- apply command shortcuts
- ai origin followers fix
- spawners don't spawn in teleporter zones
- Improve custom weapon damage (prefered shotguns)
- mute grenade (yet to finish)
- scorestreaks (introducing a few killstreaks from mine and my friends past of scripting
- Hint chats
- Custom traps (tbd)
- Bo and bo2 perks (yet to be added)
- New boss (tbd)
- changing stock boss model

2 most recent maps are almost complete, extended the gameplay distance and introduced new areas for you to explore

Day/Night cycle idea has been cancelled, but an alternative idea for a "scare" factor (not jump scares, just scary ambience and gameplay) will be implemented. This however will be optional ingame, it won't have anything to do with beating the map so its totally down to you whether you want to go to this new area or not :)

some new teasers for you all :)

The last two maps are currently undergoing, but i will let you all know when they're both finished.

I thought i'd let everyone know about the latest news on the project rather than keep it quiet and cause a whole lot of questions about the progress delays over the last few months, so here's a few reasons to why you see a large amount of changes to the overall design and function.

Well, as many of you know I don't rarely have time to work on this project, I can potentially put about a day's work every week to this which is one of the main reasons to why it's taking so long. Planning wasn't thought out properly when I first started the project, the whole intention of this mod to start with was to follow a dead island and nazi zombie style cross over, allowing people to experience a large scaled environment and interact with AI for objectives and side missions..That was the start but I realised there's a lot more potential to this idea, I spent months experimenting ideas to make it feel more realistic by focusing on high detailing and custom ambience/lighting to give a heart warming experience to what the engine can potentially do..that's then.

And then there's now... lately i've been caught up with the idea of expanding it even more where it's starting to become something hard but special to achieve. Since there's been a lot of changes i just want to confirm that there will be a shadowlands, but not the way you see it now. Only lately you've seen part of what the cooperative experience will look like graphically, but the way AI and player interactions will be a lot different in the final version. For the last week i've been writing up a script for a solo experience which actually has a storyline rather than rely on side missions, but also make the solo experience similar to the coop experience to maintain the overall feel of the mod. If anyone is confused to what i'm trying to achieve; think of 'The Last Of Us' but with player decided interactions, where the player has to choose wisely where to go and how it could impact the rest of the story mode.

Anyways, ontop of all that I would like to announce that their will be an Official Beta for the cooperative experience sometime close to now, it just wont have the final build layout but you will get to experience about 20% of what it will be like.

Thank you all for your patience and I hope you enjoy what I have to show in the near future :)

This in my opinion,* seems to be one of the most ambitious projects to date. I'm overly excited to see what else you're releasing and the possibility of a beta soon makes me very excited! Keep up the good work and take your time. :)

I never feel like i need to rush things since that's what i've never really done, the key to put a project together is to finish it to the standard you're happy with, giving in on half-assed work would be a let down for myself but all these ideas drive me to present the work differently each time, that's why i like experimenting and seeing where the project will push me too :) But I feel grateful that you're interested in what i had to say, i hate feeling that i let people down by constantly delaying a potential release but the longer it takes the more possibilities it will have is what i say :)

Since it's in a post apocalyptic environment you won't see many weapons, but it will focus heavily on melee tactics and depending on the gamemode you will be able to craft your own weapons rather than just buying them (seems to suit the theme this way)

Hello everyone, if anyone that hasn't heard the reasoning behind the cancellation of the halloween release please read below, I do apologise for any inconveniences.

Quote from: Uk_ViiPeR
The release date has been post-poned due to three major faults with the mod itself, although this gives me more time to fix a few more bugs and add new features as i go on. The UI will hold a lot more features giving the user out-of-game benefits for ingame content. You don't need to worry about the mod being scrapped as i've gone too far into this project to throw it away, all i can tell you is that as soon as you see gameplay of this mod from TheRelaxingEnd then you know it will be out shortly after. I hope you all understand why i'm doing this and i respect you more if you do so. i'f you do have any queries about the mod feel free to contact me.

Just a little update, due to security problems with the verification system I would advise people to request access whether its for the pre-alpha or not. I'm only saying this because on the release of the project your name has to be in the mod in order to validate your account.

You can request access by requesting beta access (your name will be added to the google document) or simply comment on the document itself. if your name is on that document (within reason) then you have been granted access to the shadowlands project.

You can comment on the document here (make sure to comment on the next available box): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hUtyYW-NnVanEuJxsg5OTgSBCkLI5pm7MlOw5o74BQk/edit?usp=sharing

If by any chance you would not like your name displayed on the graph then please notify me before applying to the list and i will happily keep your waw user private.


Thank you for your patience and I hope to see a lot of you on here soon :)

Still here, still working. just quietly. I don't want to spoil anything just yet. It's a slow progress but i'm getting there, thing's are different now, but seem to fit the theme a lot better than the past.

ETA - before BO3 mod tools (if released)

Progress update, just wanted to let everyone know the project is still undergoing.

- From high demand i have started a classic mode, but won't be the heavy focus of the project.

- More features and ways to obtain items have been added, working on ingame UI currently to expand the possibilities.

- Trailer is 90% done

- Alpha is 90% done (for real this time)

any-who, here's a screenshot

Hello everyone, today i'm bringing some up to date news about the project and what will be happening in the future, now don't be affraid with what i'm about to say because there is a silver light to it.

The Shadowlands Project for [email protected] has been cancelled for now. unfortunately due to the amount of limitations with the engine itself i regret to inform you that the project won't be at its full potential with this version of the engine. there are many reasons to this but i will explain them below.

- The map capability is limiting, the original plan was to make a single map have a "open world" feel to it. while fitting with the world and other gamemodes.

Quote
- Custom content has been restricted, this effects how much content is used within the UI or ingame.

- The maps i've already designed and are ready i'm just not happy with, they have so much more potential and could really use a 'remastered' look to it.

- This also helps me focus on doing the DLC maps ready in advance.

Currently, this project will be held mainly for BO3 as we have a wide range of new tools to mess around with and i can meet the higher standard i've always wanted.

There will be a [email protected] version shortly after the BO3's version is released, but it will have to be a LITE version because of the stated issues above, but will function nearly the same as bo3's version just with less content and access.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience and false hopes (especially after the recent pre-alpha preview video) but i hope you all understand why i'm doing this.

This WIP thread will remain the main topic until a bo3 section is open, it will stay open and i will continue to show updates and progression overtime. i have a lot to show you all soon, but please stand by for now.

See you in the future,
Uk_ViiPeR.

unfortunately no i did not, but i guess it was down to what experience you had and where they were looking. i'd rather the alpha tools to be tested and end up nearly bug free in comparison to the current version (if they found any that is) just saves us in the long run really.
