Hey folks, today I wanna introduce you to one of the best (if not the best) mod I've seen so far.
Homepage: Clicky
So it's a mod about surviving (and not more) the zombie-apocalypse.



Quoted:

Welcome to Chernarus

A 225 km2 open world post-soviet state and one of the areas hit by a new and presently unknown infection which has wiped out most of the world's population. You are one of the few who have survived and now you must search this new wasteland in order to fight for your life against what is left of the indigenous population, now infected with the disease.

Go Solo, team up with friends or take on the world as you choose your path in this brutal and chilling landscape using whatever means you stumble upon to survive.


Well if surviving souns boring or easy to you: You have nothing in the beginning. No food, no weapons and no idea where you are. You have to find everything in citries on farms and so on. Also it's online which means you'll have to face other survivors. They could kill you to grab your gear. Paranoia.

All-in-all it's A LOT of fun. Even if there's no story or sth, my friend and I have some nice and some bad stories to tell :)

Seen it. Very cool concept, but I'm afraid that I'd lose interest too quickly due to the many problems with it. It's still in BETA after all.

It's an ALPHA actually. The thing even before the BETA :)

But really it's so much fun!
Thanks to Vavena!

If it is this popular while still in alpha, i'm sure that it will get a lot of players when it's done. Remember Minecraft, it had a huge amount of players while still in alpha and no advertisement.

Many thanks to MissMaw, LaCorpse, Xiron, Arcana3 and Joxuu for making me sigs!

Yes.
And honestly I would say it's the Minecraft for FPS-Games.
Thanks to Arcana3!

I had seen a video from SeaNanners playing it, and it looked interesting. This whole scavenge-build-survive thing is what i like most, and what drew me in Minecraft in the first place (<MC Hipster> when there wasn't even the Nether or Multiplayer... before beta... </MC Hipster>) If it's free, i might give it a try.

Really, really fun. It's got a lot of glitches, but they really don't matter. It's just too good. I've got my homeserver as UK63, if anyone fancy joining :).

"I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m ****ing ******ed but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding." - Guuse
