Let me start by saying I know next to nothing about game development and have no clue if this would work or if we are even allowed to do this but since we are using other Infestation assets such as the guns I wonder what else we could use. I was watching old Warz/Infestation videos such as the "Rampage" gameplay trailer and old Q/A's with Sergey Titov on dev servers where they had brand new Zombie animations no one has seen before. Even something simple such as walking with one arm out at you in the Rampage gameplay looked cool and refreshing from the generic old animations we have. I wanted to know why were these animations never used back in Infestation and would we be allowed/ could take those old animations and implement them into this game to make the zombies new and refreshing at a low cost.

After the map i really think the zombies are worth taking a look at. They have been the same for so many years now and could need a fresh touch to them,  if possible.

It would be so funny if we could get Artemis to do a single zombie noise. It would be Hilarious

you mean stuff like crawling zombies etc?

some people manage to make them running "privately" ( dunno what that means dx ) but these were never unfinished..

example : a crawling zombie would insta get up to use atack animation, and later get on a ground in 1 single frame to start moving, was crazy AF

thoo would like to see something like that beeing made from a scrap here

No no, Go look up Artemis Knives Q/A Sergey Titov. He is running around on a dev server and some zombies has new unused walking animations etc. Also in old trailers there is old walking with 1 hand out examples. The crawlers I forgot about but that woukd be cool to. When i get home later I will post a video with examples

Examples:

2:51 Zombie on the right

15:36 Look all around at the MULTIPLE animations being used for zombies all around

38:08 Some zombies are doing unused walking animations

 

And then we have this old old video

 

Examples:

0:28 Zombie using unused walking animation while not agro 

0:33 When agrod zombie uses unused cool arm out animation

2:28 Zombie using unused hit animation which could be re-cycled 

5:08 another unused agro animation

 

From the rampage gameplay this is OLD OLD footage and somethings such as the zombies legs moving funny would have to be adjusted if possible but we have serious stuff here that can be used to make some refreshing interesting zombies!

Well..they aren't new..Used them in my last emulator..they are actually commented out in the Infestation coding.Putting them into Aftermath wouldn't be hard to do..But the dev's time is pretty well consumed and they can't jump on and introduce every little thing that the community wants..This is AK'S baby..I think if he decides they are worth messing with, then they may appear in game...

No idea how hard new zombie skins would be, but just that would be a great fresh touch. The zombies work, that is the most important part, but some new looks would be so cool.

Again,  no idea if this is possible or not.

Its possible and since all the animations and stuff are there it shouldent be that hard at all. I agree though this map patch is taking a little to much time and full focus should be on that first.

Yeah that would be so cool. Although I would change the appearance of the zombies like their looks. They have been looking exact same for like what 5 years? For sakes change their voices....

unfortunately probably wont redo or update any zombie textures much.  Dont have access to the psds or highpoly models for them.  Makes it a bit hard to do any good serious texture changes without those.  Maybe change tints and change some patterns on cloths but beyond that dosnt really look that good and not worth it. The most I have done lately (will be in patch) was make the eyes, skins tints similar, and fixed up the materials a bit on them.  None of the materials where setup right previously.
