Interesting and of course a small token of your time if curious-
Looking to see what would happen in a zombie outbreak given factors X and Y? Look no further, for physics and disease gurus have given us the answer.
Presenting Zombie Town USA — an interactive zombie outbreak simulator.
The simulator is hosted on GitHub, produced by Matt Bierbaum. In it, observe a map of the United States and start your own zombie outbreak, modeled on disease and virus transmission. The map shows which areas are more densely populated so placing a zombie in the center of New York is quite interesting.
The sim uses modeling and of math and real-world information, including 2010 census data. You can adjust the “bite to kill ratio” and “inter-cell propagation speed” to test different scenarios.
Start your simulation with Zombie Town USA now.
Shenanigan Simulator Overpoch Dayz
We are a group of friends just running a server together for the heck of it. We were sick of every other server we joined having unfair game-play. I say this meaning admins were abusive of there rights and made dayz hard to enjoy. We are a very active crew that promote a fun and stable experience while playing. We are also a fresh server, and we are hoping to get more active players to start a fun and active community. Since we have played Dayz our self, we understand the frustration that abusive admins, hackers, and other bologna brings. A list of our server details are listen below.
Server Ip: 126.96.36.199:3302
Self Blood Bag
Server Events (With Rewards)
Starter Base building box (per group)
Gas Station Refuel
Very Active Admins
4 hour Restarts
With More Coming...
No talking in Side Chat
No camping trade zones
No stealing from trade zones
No trash talking
All around be a good sport (We admins will be watching)
If you have any questions or comments, leave them below. If you are interested in donating ask an admin in the server. All donations goes to server upkeep and upgrades. Have fun and we look forward to see what kind of Shenanigans you bring to our server!
So I have been watching this wonderful series, DayZ - The Diary of Isaac:
It had me thinking of some old ideas I had while playing the mod. These are all hypothetical features, as i'm sure most people would hate them due to their harsh and inconvenient nature.
Here's the idea's:
-Zombies can "infect" players by making them bleed. Once infected, their motor controls would decrease, they may fire off weapons on accident, lots of stomach issues, and lastly after about 2-3 hours an AI would take over and attempt to kill other players in the area. There is a cure to the virus, however it is extremely rare due amount of people that tried to obtain it.
-Out of game chat programs are a bannable offense and the community discourages meta-gaming (Impossible, I know).
-When a player begins the game, he is sent to a random server, to which they cannot switch until death. Upon death the player is forced to re-spawn in another, random server and cannot return to the previous one. At least not for a very very long period of time.
You have been playing for a while and you have met another player. You don't know him outside of the game but you promise to play with him at specific times on certain days. You've spent the majority of your DayZ hours with him so far.
Well, just like on any other day, a horde of zeds attack the both of you. You decide to shoot them, as using melee is too risky. You friend uses up all of his ammo and you have very little left, but the horde is dead. Once you think the fight is over, one last zombie comes running towards you while you are reloading. Your friend pulls out his axe and begins to attack the zed, as a last resort to save you and he takes down the zombie.
Finally the battle is over. You perform your usual checks on each-other to see if either one of you are bleeding and infected. Yet your friend seems reluctant to take off his shirt. You keep asking him to and finally he finally removes his top. He has been cut, and he is infected... He tells you to put him down but you refuse, and instead you both embark on a search for the cure. It's been thirty minutes and his stomach is making some very odd noises. After an hour he begins losing motor controls and accidentally fires off his M4 multiple times, almost killing you in the process. So he throws it away. After two hours he starts throwing up and collapsing repeatedly, it is clear that he is going to die. He asks you again to put him down, as he doesn't want to turn into a zed and attack you as well. You know its the only option.
You take him to a tall hill and you both sit down on the top, looking at the horizon landscape. You both begin talking a little bit about your adventures, knowing he doesn't have much time left. After about half an hour, he is trying to talk but he keeps throwing up blood, effectively cutting off direct chat when it occurs. You stand up while he is talking and pull out your revolver. As you walk behind him and begin loading the round; you both start laughing with a bleak tone, stating how much fun you've had surviving alongside each other. A long pause of silence occurs, he begins making savage noises, however you can still hear his voice as he says his goodbyes. You raise your revolver up and he stands up and turns around. His face, now unfamiliar and feral. His arms rise up to attack and you squeeze the trigger...
What was once your friend, is now a lifeless corpse at your feet. All those hours spent eating together, fighting together, and surviving together, now just memories. There was no meta-gaming so you can't contact him, if he re-spawns it will be in another server, and he cannot come back to you. His existence has effectively been removed from your life as you know it, all because of a bullet, fired from your gun. This is a true apocalypse moment, and this is what I want my DayZ experience to be like.
Alright, so that's my little idea and story to back it up. Yes I do realize it will most likely never happen and I never expect it to. Just a little thought that I wanted to share with anyone that might be interested.
