    *The Majority of these changes have already been added this week.


    - Changes -

    Bleed - Bleed now deals 4 base damage for both teams.

    Each stack provides 4 additional damage. 1 Stack = 8 Damage, 2 Stacks = 12 Damage.

    Upgrades affect stack damage only. ( The 4 Base damage cannot be increased )

    Survivor Bleed 'Tick' Time changed to 10 -> 12 Seconds.

    Dependant on the player base, multiple people can now answer the math questions, runners up will gain half the previous experience reward.

    For token rewards, all players will receive a token.

    You will also no longer be randomly slayed if you were second to answer ( this was a bug ).


    Panic Pass - You will no longer need to spend any tokens on any challenges. ( Keeping in line with the Anti-EA statement ).
    The Curse Challenge has been made free whilst active, Double EXP Challenge can now be re-rolled for free in the Coin Shop ( !pass )

    Although you would gain enough tokens to complete them at later levels, the early levels proved difficult to complete if you started with very little tokens.

    There are no costs to activate the Panic Pass.

    Once activated you will have 45 days to obtain the unique skin, all other rewards have no time limit.

    Once you reach level 10, the rewards will reset back to level 1 ( e.g. Level 11 = level 1 )

    New Commands: !curse /curse !decurse /decurse

    Fungrades 2024 - 1.2.0 - Zombie Balance, Infection Changes, Stat strength moved into Yin Yang's from Upgrades.

    - Notes -

    This update is focused on moving the power of infection and its relevant builds ( On-Hit Power, Mutation, Plague ) into Yin Yang's .

    Along with this change, the strength of both Damage & Health from upgrades have also been moved into Yin Yang's ( Keeping Damage & Health Builds viable )


    Zombies currently have an insanely high win rate across 90% of the maps played, ( even with the new zombie selection feature which will select based on skill ) zombies are still having a little bit of an easy time. Due to this, higher skilled players are also having little chance of becoming a zombie on the majority of maps ( along with the fact everyone pressing F2 ).


    As Yin Yang's feel slightly underwhelming at the moment, several Yin Yang's have had their overall power has now been made far more stronger than previous. They have also been given scaling de-buffs making them viable at all levels.


    Although the Zombie infection upgrade is receiving a nerf from upgrades, survivor armour no longer completely prevents infection. Having armour now increases your infection protection chance by 2x. Ultimately, if survivors still decide against upgrading infection protection, zombie infection builds will now be far more deadly.


    Similar to infection, armour now reduces the attackers bleed chance by 50%


    ** FYI: Changes below that include 'Base' refers to the additional ( or negative ) stat provided at level 1 included for both Yin Yang's & Perks.



    - Changes -

    4 New Prestige Specific Upgrade Yin Yang's have been added

    Zombie Cripple Upgrade Removed, Replaced with Endurance ( Anti-Cripple/Slow )

    For simplicity and easy understanding for all. Infection and Infection Protection now works with Armour(2x Infection Protection) for all interactions. Plague chance re-buffed to 100% from upgrades ( from 50% ).

    Bleed stacks now reduce Life steal effectiveness ( Revitaliser, Bloodthirster, Vampire )

    Yin Yang de-buffs now scale with each level, making them worthwhile at all levels.

    Medics now receive a default 10% infection protection.


    - Fixes -

    Mutation Air Proc Rate

    Map Starting weapons fixed ( Multiple Melee Weapons ).

    Vampire Perk now works correctly ( was providing 0 health in specific conditions )

    Pre-set ID Numbers & Loading

    We used to run that 'general' game mode as 'Kings Mod' many years ago, i am sure we split the players 50/50 human/zombies. humans re spawned, was a lot of fun

    That map is such a 50/50 though, in terms of a server filler and those who love/hate it, it always has been.


    I have seen it populate the server rather than kill it, but that was well over a year ago.


    My update to the map defo gave zombies a better chance.. Right..?

    1 new Perk Added - Death Knight - description above.


    Stats system has also been modified slightly, point rate gain/loss has been multiplied by 10. which means top ranked players will now gain tiny amounts of skill rating for killing anyone( rather than only gaining skill rating against players with similar skill rating )


    Along with this change, a new kill !feed which will indicate who you killed and vice versa ( with skill rating gain/loss information ). This will hopefully make the stats system easier to understand in how you gain/lose points !

    Map Conversion system has been removed. I didn't like it.


    Your upgrades and points now transfer automatically to the next map without the loss of any points. The new system, after 5 minutes of not rejoining the server, your points will slowly start decay over time.


    This means all active players, even if you only play for an hour or two, will be rewarded with upgrade points the next time you join.


    Upgrades also now max out at 10.

    Over the last few months, both xerox and myself have been working on a brand new perk/class system, which will work significantly different to our previous mods.
    We have specifically designed a system that will allow anyone to join at anytime without the need to spend hours on end trying to get points to match other players stats & upgrades.

    PerkUP
    is our latest and greatest mod that will revolutionize the world of Zombie Panic Source Kappa which will offer various different perks and classes, randomly provided each map for each individual player. Along with the randomised perks, we have also added some of our iconic upgrades that have been in our systems over the many years we have been running.


    For those watching the devlog, you may already know several of the perk names included, and for those that played our previous classmod. I do plan to add more over time ( hopefully ones you can all suggest ).




    How does it work?

    Perks
    For each map, you will be provided with 2 random perks. These perks currently include various types of buffs, some designed around damage enhancements, some designed solely for defence, some for utility purposes, and even some being slightly... random.
    You cannot change your perks manually, however, they can be re-roll via Roll The Dice. Roll the dice, including the much-loved Burn and Freeze outcomes, will also provide the chance to obtain a third Perk. The 3rd perk will then remain with you for the remainder of the current map.


    Upgrades
    4 Upgrades have been added to each team, for Survivors you will have Speed, Damage, Armour & Ammo Regen. For the Zombie team you have Speed, Damage, Health & Infection. Upgrade points are gained from dealing Damage, getting kills & assists and from Roll The Dice.


    However, although we have included our classic upgrades to the system, we have made one big change. Upgrades are temporary for each session. I wanted to create a system that was not a grind fest for upgrade points, but rather a system than can be enjoyed without the 'need' for a mod reset due to the system getting to a stage where the long term players are far too overpowered for new players to comete with. There is no longer the need to spend 25 hours a day playing to become the very best, You join, and instantly receive 2 perks and will quickly obtain upgrade points to spend. With this mod, you also do not need to worry about crashing, or restarting your game for what ever reason, the system will give you 5 minutes to rejoin before your upgrades are reset.

    Map Conversion (The confusing part, but not really)
    But players who have played for a couple of hours will still be stronger than me still!
    Yes, to some degree. Each map you will lose a % of your upgrade points, However, the longer you play, the % gained back will increase by 10% ( Starting at 30% ).


    As an example: If you manage to make 100 Upgrade points in your first map, the next map you play will provide you with 30 (30% Map Conversion) Upgrade points in return. If you are still playing at the end of your second map and you have gathered another 100 Upgrade points in total, you will then receive 40 (40% Map Conversion) Upgrade points for the next map. This is now the only reward for long duration of play, you will be overall stronger than other players, but remember, it does not take long for everyone to reach max upgrade potential!!!

    Map Conversion system has been removed. Upgrades no longer reset on each map change. However, now if you leave for long than 5 minutes, you total upgrade points will decay over time.

    Balance System + Last Stand
    This mod will also include a new balancing system which will provide early buffs for zombies if they are having little success at the start of the round, the hope for this system is to prevent starting zombies from leaving by giving them some early buffs ( Health/Damage). In chat notifications will be printed when the system is active.
    But don't fret survivors, it would not be fair giving zombies a buff without doing anything to the human team! Therefore, survivors will also receive a small buff if they are the last remaining survivor(s) (depending on playerbase).


    Automatic Upgrade System
    Inspired by Leo, and his need to help and provide new players with information about upgrading. I have made a kind of 'failsafe' system, which is ON by default. This will attempt to upgrade you, randomly, if enough upgrade points are available. a huge portion of players from our previous systems did not upgrade, this will give players who still do not fully understand that little extra boost regardless. It will print in chat the upgrade that has been upgraded when the script runs each time.

    Stats System
    The mod now has a skill-based stat system in place.Your rank, skill points, and gained skill points will be printed in chat.


    You will gain points based on the victims skill rating. This will range anywhere between 1 skill Point to 40~ skill points.


    You will also lose a small portion of skill rating on death if the attackers skill rating is far lower than your own.

    I have several more planned to add to mod, however, i would like everyone to come up with some of thier own ideas for perks. Therefore any suggestions you have, please make one here : http://soldiersofdemise.com/Fo…/14/?issueType=suggestion

    I think that is a good point, we all have/had that one common ground of zps, but outside of that, we play very different games as a whole. I have tried several times, and i know I've stated this several times in other posts in the past, but we just don't have the dedicated player base to move into games like Garrys mod, public CS GO servers etc etc, we've tried enough times to know. Games like Warframe as an example is a good shout. Those type of games only need a few people to get started is always a good place to start, as it can only grow over time.


    But again, Anyone that would like to get a game rolling that requires a server for it, just ask. Like pret does for Minecraft, it does not take long to setup servers and will always be happy to host them. We have a very powerful dedicated server waiting for new servers to host.


    I myself generally play league. So if anyone is up for a game of league, just spam me ;&gt; I will also probably be playing the new CoD or preferable the new Battlefield game when it comes out too ( mainly BR ofc ). I think getting together in these type of games that do not need the numbers to succeed is the best course to take.
