Death Front v1.2

The Story:
Your are sent to a place with which we have lost any contact since two days. According to the few information we have, a deadly virus infected all living things turning them into hostile creatures. You are the first encounter squad and you are facing an unknown ennemy, so be cautious.


Must to survive, here's how!

You have to face waves of zombies coming to kill you. You need a lot of teamplay and co-ordination. You have to build a solid and well-thought base, ensure that your team mates stay alive by healing them and reducing their infection level, that dangerous zombies are killed as fast as possible, that you do not run out of ammo or food etc... Each class has a specific mission to carry out. If someone fails, it could kill the whole team.
This is a fast, active and stressful game. You always have to fetch items and use them as well as your abilities. This is not a game that lasts 2 hours you spend waiting and watching zombies getting killed. You have to play all the time at 100% and take decisions quickly.
This game is hard. Be warned! This is a challenging never ending game. Your goal is to get a high score.
This map is made to be simple. That means everything can be known easily. There are few zombie types, few marine classes, few item types. This is not a big map, everything is about gameplay.


More about this map!


Special Features:

Autobalance : The number of zombies is proportional to the number of players. That means you can try to play alone
Randomly generated map : At start, a city is randomly generated, placing obstacles at differents points, what will make each game different.
Items drop : The airforce supports you during your mission. To get items, you have to order some and they will be dropped randomly on the map. Then, you will have to fetch them (risking your life sometimes).
Item-depending game : In this game, you will always need items. Your abilities can help you, but you really need items to succeed in everything. There is no permanent item. There are only usable items with some charges. That means you always have to order some and fetch some. You will never be "full stuffed" stopping your progression for the rest of the game. Each class has a +50% effectiveness with a certain type of items. For example, a medic heals 75HP with a medkit instead of 50.
Infection : You have an infection level which increases if you stay near corpses or if you get hit. The more you are infected, the more you take damage over time. To decrease infection you have to take antidotes. Other medicines can help you to stay alive.
Food : You consume food over time. If you have less than 2 food units, you will starve and take damage over time.
Ammunition : Your ammunition is limited. If you run out of ammunition, you will simply not be able to attack anymore.
Hero attributes system : Each time you level up, you get 1 point you can spend in constitution, weaponry or battery (which replace strength, agility and intelligence). Constitution is movement speed and hit points regeneration (useful to scout and fetch the items). Weaponry is damage and attack speed (to increase your DPS). Battery is energy (mana) regeneration (to allow you to use your abilites and your items more often).
Dying system : This system will help you not to die too fast. It lets you a chance to be rescued by your mates. When your HP fall to 0, you just fall on the ground unable to attack or move and you will die from infection if you are not rescued. If you get healed to more than 0, you will be able to get up and fight again. If your HP fall to -200, you will die forever.
Simple zombie assault : This will allow you to keep a base with holes and no get focused all the time. The zombies are dumb and will walk toward you attacking everything on their way.

Beginner's Guide:

I will explain you here how to play in concrete terms.

1) Your marine
Choose your class in the transport helicopter. Spend your 2 marine's attribute points (battery is a good choice at start).

2) Placing the command post
Take the command post and put it somewhere. There are many ways of placing your command post. You can use the trees and houses to make a natural invincible wall or you can use a plain area for a better visibility.

3) Ordering some items
Click on the command post and spend your points to order some items. As you really need some barricades, I recommand you to take massive material at start, some weapons can be useful though. Once everybody ordered items, require them to be dropped.

4) Fetching items
Once the items are dropped, the team has to get them and bring them back to base. Just look at the minimap to know where they were dropped. Remember, you need barricades at start, so you can start building.

5) Making the base
Once you got some barricades, you can build a wall that surrounds you. There are many ways of making a good base. The command post can be in or out of your base, it can also be a part of the wall. The wall can have some holes or can be totally closed. An opened base is useful for getting in and out for repairs, building or items fetching, but hunters will get in. If you have a hole, you need to cover it with spikes and a torch to prevent zombies coming in. If you are in team, everyone should build some barricades, because one marine can not build everything (except a good engineer).

6) Before a wave
Before the wave starts, the team should scatter everywhere on the map to get items and then run back to the base. If you are badly injured and could die in many seconds, do not get out of the base or ask a medic for morphine. The medic can stay in the base to clean it and the engineer can stay to (re)build. If the wave starts exactly at the same time with the drop, do not take too much risks. Do not try to get an item far in the edge if you are not an experimented player (especially if you are not a ranger). Do not get hit! If you die far from the base, it could kill the whole team trying to rescue you.

7) During a wave
During the wave, everybody has his specific job : the soldier has to use the weapons wisely (do not waste them, but use them). The ranger has to be very careful in order to neutralize hunters as fast as possible and has to kill tanks. The engineer has to keep an eye on the barricades and repair them (holding "ALT" is a good trick to see any possible gap). He can also use smoke grenades and electro gun to reduce the global zombies damage. The medic has to be very careful too. He has to keep an eye on the life of each marine and on the global health. Spamming morphine on a badly injured marine till you get the medicines to cure him works fine.

8) At the end of a wave
Before the wave ends, you should order your items or they will come too late. The ranger can leave the base before every zombie is killed and can start getting some items. If your base is a closed base, you will probably have to destroy a barricade to allow your team to get out. You will obviously destroy the most damaged barricade and rebuild it when everybody is back in base.
