A coop/singleplayer survival map with dynamic difficulty, similar to Call of Duty zombies.

  1. The Beta Update

    BackSun
    The Beta Update

    Additions:

    - added a map of the world to the spawn with locations of interest marked
    - Added a screen fade when a weapon refresh happens
    - a new area for bots by the spawnroom
    - Added a "cheat room" that allows players to have one wave last forever,
    that can only be accessed using noclip.
    (although it can only be used after a wave has been completed)
    it gives players control over:
    bot health
    the dynamic difficulty level (how many bots spawn at once)
    spawn rate (how fast they will respawn, if enabled. by default it is 8 seconds)
    whether or not giants spawn
    whether or not all weapons are unlocked
    bot running speed
    - added a speed boost when in between rounds
    - the waterfall now slightly damages robots
    - added the recall canteen
    - added text to tell dead scouts to join spectators
    (since I can't stop them for instantly respawning)

    Balance:

    - bot health was tweaked slightly
    so the beginning will be slightly easier but later
    waves will be much harder.

    bot health at round:
    0: 40 (was 45)
    10: 220 (was 225)
    20: 770 (was 575)
    40: 5270 (was 1525)
    60: 19270 (was 3375)
    80: 43470 (was 6150)
    100: 69470 (was 12150)

    - the money gained per wave now increased by 5 per wave
    (was a flat 250 each wave)

    money gained at round:
    0: 150 (starting money)
    10: 290
    20: 345
    40: 445
    60: 545
    80: 645
    100: 745

    - slightly increased bot's attack range in later waves (every 5 waves, from wave 25 to 60)

    - changed the sniper rile charge upgrade from a speed upgrade
    to a support upgrade (the shield)
    and separated it into 2 upgrades (each half of the original)
    - reduced the maximum number of any single upgrade to 6
    (so the default GUI can be used)
    this effected: almost every ammo related upgrade (max ammo, clip size, etc.)
    - added an ammo regen upgrade

    - removed the "rage on hit" and soldier buff duration upgrade
    - reduced passive health regen to 4 (from 6)
    - increased the cost of "Sniper charge rate" to 200 (was 100)
    - increased the cost of soldier, engineer, and demo's weapons to 6 (was 3)
    - increased the cost of pyro and heavy's weapons to 9 (was 3)

    - gave engineers 75% sentry resistance
    - improved sentry damage upgrade to +75% with a cost of 250 (was +40% with a cost of 225)
    - improved the metal regen upgrade for engineer to 5 (was 2)
    - the cost to unlock medic's weapons will now only increase by 1 per player (was 2)
    - decreased the cost of medic's weapons to 2 (was 3)
    - allowed medic to use Ubercharge (although uber is set to 0 on wave start)
    - added an upgrade to increase uber charge rate
    - added an upgrade to increase move speed when aiming (which affect heavy and sniper)

    - disabled the following weapons:
    (most because they don't function correctly with these bots)
    - battalion's backup
    - buff banner
    - concheror
    - quick fix
