    I just found out about this. ZPS is getting a pretty meaty update and a modeling contest. Good stuff: http://www.zombiepanic.org/site/index.php

    Played this already, but i didnt like the whole gameplay, way too slow compared to other games (Left 4 Dead).

    The pictures look nice though.

    Are they seriously using that many env_projectedtexture's? Unless they've changed something about them, I can't see anybody getting good performance at all.

    I was briefly on the zombie mod team HoldOut as a level designer before the lead coder decided he wanted to concentrate on University and the whole thing went down the drain mid development.

    It's a shame that most of their good maps (and weapon models) were donations from said mod. I'd have liked to see better stuff by now.

    I still had a map i wanted to release for HO and promised Tatsuro i'd donate it to ZP when it was finished (when i was reminded about the mod when steam had a big hoohaa about it). But my motivations continued to lie with TF2. I should pull my finger out and pass it over since the half finished vmf still looks of better quality than these maps.

    Zombie Panic is incredible fun if you play it with a group of people you vaguely know, and alltalk on, about 3 times a year.

    Zombie panic is okay but I find it really...buggy with no help.
