Degeneration -Zombie Reign-

by
Genesis92x


Description:
Degeneration is a sandbox zombie survival game that mainly uses Charon's Undead Mod. Many other scripts that are written by very smart scripters are used as well, if you want to find out what is used you can download the un-pbo version of Degeneration and take a look for yourself!


Degeneration's Story:
The ground softly shifted under my weight, as I slid down the tree I was leaning against. Able to rest for only a moment, I began to think about what I always thought about when I had time to myself. The scent of burning fires, stale gunpowder, and rotting flesh, helping to jog my memory. For ten years, I had worked this area, hand in hand with Takistanians and Americans, in an attempt to give us all a better world. A volunteer work force of over ten-thousand United States citizens, to help rebuild Takistan from the recent wars. I don't think anyone could of seen this coming. Hell, I'm in the middle of it, and I still don't believe it's happening. Since the weeks that have gone by, I have heard rumors from evil scientists to UFOs, and everything imbetween. Personally, I don't really care where they came from. All I know is, they die with enough bullets in them, and that's enough knowledge for me. Now that I finally have a radio, which was obtained from a fallen Takistani guard, god rest his soul, I've gotten some info on small pockets of survivors. The USMC and US Army have apparently set up a sizeable garrison in Rasman, and that's where I intend to be by nightfall tomorrow. Being on foot is horrible in this forsaken land, but at I least I can see them coming easier than if I was traveling by vehicle. Besides, you really need only two things to survive here: A steady hand, and an even steadier supply of ammunition.


Installation:
Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\MPMissions folder.


Goal:
What? You have to design missions that have a goal? Well shucks. Degeneration really does not have an end point. In-fact, if you beat Degeneration (killing all the zombies) I will call hacks on you very quickly. The odds are very stacked against the player(s) (1,000,000,000 to 1) The goal of Degeneration can be whatever the players want it to be. Do you want to try to attempt as many side missions as possible? Do you want to just sit in a corner of the map and sing by a camp fire? Do you want to ruthlessly hunt down the zombies and try to help the poor towns? Do you want to set-up a fortress surrounded by trip mines and landmines and static weapons so you can sleep peacefully in the night? Do you want to go from town to town trying to find people you can recruit to help you fight the zombies?
What-ever the goal, you make it and you do it. For those that need an end to a mission, try killing every last zombie. Every. Last. Single. Zombie.


Setting:
Degeneration takes place in Takistan and it involves the entire map. Yup. All of Takistan. Each town (and a few added towns/safezones/Evacuationzones) adds up to a total of 34 areas that the zombies virtual infection system can infect and spread their virtural love to other towns.


Spawning:
Ammunition? Weapons? Pffftttttttt. Starting with weapons is for babies and little children! Are you a baby/child? In Degeneration you can have your pick of any civilian in the multiplayer set-up screen, once you load in you will be randomly spawned in a town that cordinates with that slot. 1 player per town, so your friends will not be close by! Once you load in, you will quickly realize that you have no weapons! No matter, then try to hit M to check your map. GASP!! You have no map either! No map, no compass, no nothing. In Degeneration you will spawn with nothing at all. Naked and perfect zombie food. (Well you have clothes)


Gear:
I will not go in-depth into the gear system. Just know that there are 330 different (and growing) assortments of weapons and gear. How do you get this gear you ask? Simple! Scavenge! Scavenge! Scavenge! What? is that a dead doctor? You better loot his body and see if he has any antidote on him!
Each area (34 of em) has a magnitude of vehicles that can spawn within them. To ensure different game-play each time, this system is randomized. Rather then going on in a long sentence about how the spawning system works, I will give you an example.


Side Missions:
Side missions are totally optional and consist of saving people/killing people/getting things. They usually give you vehicles or weapons that are usually not obtainable any other way. This is just another aspect added for the players that wanted another thing to do.


Saving?:
You will not get far in Degeneration before you are forced to let real life take back over and get some sleep. BUT do not worry! I have tested it multiple times and saving will not break Degeneration! I even gave the players a radio command to "Debug" the zombies in case they suspect the zombies are broken!


So...All in all?:
All in all, Degeneration is a sandbox zombie killing mission and I can't really write down everything about it here. I will let the players find out what it has to offer (A lot of secrets and hidden things!). It is a sandbox mission and just that-the players can bring and take what they want from it. I will be releasing the un-pbo version of the mission too so people can easily mod it.


Important note:
If you are hosting Degeneration install The Undead Mod V.90 like normal.

If you are a client REMOVE the Chn_Undead_Control.pbo!! Otherwise the mission you join will be messed up! This is something that someone else will have to fully fix!
