    There's a few post apocoliptic mods out there and I'm wondering what's going to set this one apart from the others?

    Aftermath is going to be done in the same style as afterworld, tactical combat while most other post-apocalyptic mods are strategic in nature.

    yea more like jagged alliance, xcom, afterworld... that stuff, no city building, etc. more tactical rpg than strategy game.
    But it will take some time

    I was bored so I tried to put my writing skills to good use. ;) Hope it's useful.


    Spoiler Story :
    The decades leading up to the Aftermath were an era of peace and prosperity for humanity. Technology was evolving at a rapid pace, diseases thought to be incurable were being cured, and the United Nations had passed a worldwide ban on Nuclear weapons. Even the level of corruption was thought to be minimal. But most of the public never knew about the biological weapons that were being secretly developed by every nation, as a means of "defence".

    There have been biological weapons in existence for a long time, but these new ones were different. The advancement in knowledge of bacteria and disease had great potential...

    As peaceful as those years were, the following were violent and bloody. Several assassinations had disturbed the peace, and nations went to war.

    It only took one nation to destroy everything we had.

    A bio-missile was launched straight into the heart of a metropolis that held half a billion souls. A few million people went into comas... even more died. Most of them, however, seemed to be immune to the viruses released from the explosion.

    That one missile may not have caused the Aftermath, but every nation retaliated, and the Earth became a toxic wasteland.

    A few months later, the people who had appeared immune to the viruses began to have symptoms. It was horrific. At first they just looked like heavy drug addicts, but on the inside they were truly suffering. Parts of their brain were shutting down. Their muscles were tearing in pain. They became mentally unstable.

    Their skin became a sickly shade of green, and it was then that they became enraged. In their enraged state of mind they found themselves craving raw meat...

    The war continues. But this is the Aftermath.

    seZereth, since you hate doing coding, you might want to contact primordial stew who is doing Escape from Zombie Island. It looks almost identicle to Aftermath but a little more srategic (but not by much).

    I have an idea for some zombie units.Maybe you could make some Zombie Police officers,soldiers,and S.W.A.T. officers.(Since the army and Police department could have tried to intervene due to residential calls,or from failed rescue missions).

    EXTRA ZOMBIES
    1.Zombie Police officers (stronger than normal zombies)
    2.Zombie S.W.A.T. officers (stronger thn Zombie police officers)
    3.Zombie Soldiers (Stronger the Zombie S.W.A.T. officers)

    It would also be interesting to add a plane wreck on the map,where regular zombies,Zombie Flight attendants,and Zombie pilots would spawn.

    Tasunke, I don't think this mod ended up being developed. However if you're interested in a post apocolyptic mod check out Fury Road, which is available and working, and is still an active project.
