    A Zombie Nurse, for King Arthur's Escape From Zombie Island II scenario. Handy if your Zombies need limbs re-attaching, although I wouldn't trust her with a thermometer anywhere near me.

    If anyone else has any use for such a thing I'll be very surprised!

    Special thanks to Vuldacon, for tweaking the animations and in-game testing, and also for the excellent sounds. They really bring the unit to unlife.





    Get her here.

    [EDIT - 20/10/06] - I've done new Civilopedia icons for this unit. Check out the downloads page to get them.

    Those animations are great. I really like the death animation with her trying to keep her balance as she's falling. Great stuff.

    Well, I must say that after thoroughly Game Testing this Unit when making sounds for her that she is Great Fun! Plotinus has not only made this Zombie Nurse exactly as we needed for "Escape From Zombie Island 2" but he added Some fun features to her such as her arm dropping off during the Death Animation and her taking it off and waving it around during the Victory Animation. I think she is a Perfect Zombie Nurse and adds Fun to the Game.
    This Unit can also quite easily be used for the Zulus for example...They Just Love to make Zombies :D Great Job on Her Plotinus :clap: :band: :thanx:

    Thanks, it's a great addition for Escape From Zombie Island 2. She's gross but in a really, really good way.

    It's here!

    Looking at the unit, if you were to ignore the victory animation, then this unit could be used as your average sleep deprived/drunk nurse or woman on hen night!

    Glad you all like her. I should probably mention that the program I used to batch convert the frames for the animated preview messed up the palette a little, so she looks a bit better in-game. But they always do, of course.

    Utahjazz7 - thanks for the comments. I think you were right when you said in your tutorial that deaths are very hard to do. In fact I designed this one a little while ago, and I was so pleased that it actually looked fairly reasonable for a change that I'm using it for everything at the moment (apart from the arm dropping off, of course). It's longer than a standard death animation (because of the stagger), which means you need custom sounds, but I'm quite pleased with it.

    Well, it depends on how they die, doesn't it.

    I have to mention this - my girlfriend is so funny sometimes. I told her about this unit, and she said, "Well, I wouldn't have thought Zombies would go into caring professions like nursing." I had to explain that it's not a Zombie that's become a nurse - it's a nurse that's become a Zombie. Then she understood...

    Sure zombies can go into a caring proffesion such as nursing- there are thousands of twisted, sick-in-the-head, "I'm gonna just rip out your brain now" nurses out there, right as we speak...
