Personally, I don't like the Idea of infection. If i wanted to play against other players, I would go to zombie panic. Survivors vs Zombie master is what I play this for (other than the realism). zombies not under the zombie master command would make the zombie master position completely void. BUT! I do like poisoning. For example, instead of instant kills, blobs poison the player, and over time (if the player isn't already killed) the survivor will bleed out, and die from the poison.
As I posted in another topic: http://zmbe.theicecave.net/index.php?topic=28.0
We could add a Med Kit that allows a player to become a sort of healer for the survivors.
It would be preferable for only 1 of each of said 'Class Items'. More each player having a specific and individual role makes the game more challenging and fun. Having 50 med kits would ruin the idea of healing because the role would become standard and not unique.
It would be fun for a survivor team to have:
-1 tank with a riot shield to make a path for other players to get through
-1 medic with the med kit to heal poison, and rehabilitate downed players
-1 Engineer, that fixes guns, shields, and etc.
- the rest could just have guns, who's sole purpose is to be the zombie killers. The most important players, the ones who do the general killing.
I like the 1 hitter quitter zombies, but maybe some kind of body armor can be added. Instead of more health or less damage, armor can be added to absorb killing blows (damaged armor can be fix by the designated engineer)
If infection is such a big demand, then I guess a different game mode should be added. As an option, not a standard.
To highlight what I said earlier.
ITEMS with abilities NOT classes
BLEEDING not infection
ARMOR not weaker zombies.
I want to preserve the gameplay that is already there; and maybe add somethings here or there. The basis of the mod is already AMAZING. I wouldn't want to see another generic infection zombie game like Zombie Panic (Not that it isnt a good game, its just that there are too many like it)
OH!! Maybe some sort of friendly fire option, Just for the realism. OPTION. Cuz I know a lot of jerks who would kill me for no real reason.
