In this thread I will try to put any Zombie info that I can find so that all of you guys can use it to make your maps or skins or anything else. I will have pics, info, videos and anything you ask me for. I was also thinking of going to faces of death to see if I could get so pics of dead people. This is for makeing the most realistic skins. To make a zombie you must first look at the non-liveing. I know some of you think that looking at dead peoples pictures are wrong or sick ( I kinda do to) but make-up artist do it so why shouldn't we. It would make for realistic cutz,bruzes,bites,impalements,smashing of body parts and so on... I will not post anything that is very bad but it will be alittle. I will get you Zombie movie info and other info as well...
The reason I'm am doing this is because I can't code and I don't know how to make maps or do anything I just want the source ver to something that freaks me and everyone out. I hope that you all support me in this and if there is anything I can do to help any of the map,skin,content, makers out there just let me know...
In love with mod

This is all from a book called : The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From The Undead
What is a zombie? How are they created? What are their strengths and weaknesses?What are there needs, their desires? Why are they hostile to humanity? Before dissussing any survival techniques, you must first learn what you are trying to survive. We must begin by separtating fact from fiction. The walking dead are neither a workin of '"black magic" nor any other supernatural force.Their origin stems from a virus known as Solanum, a latin word used by Jan Vanderhaven, who first "discovered" the disease.
Too often, the undead have been said to possess superhuman powers: unusal strength,lighting speed,telepthy, tec. Stories range from zombies flying through the air to their scailing virtcal surfaces like spiders. While these traits might make for fasinating drama, the individual ghoul is far from magical. There is no way a zombie could fly unless the human it used to be could fly. Imagine the human body as a tool kit. The somnambulist brain has those tools, and only thse tools, at it's disposal. It cannot create new ones out of thin air. But it can, as you will see use these tools in unconventional combinations, or push their durrability beyond normal human limits.
The eyes of a zombie are no different than those of a normal human.
While still capable of transmitting visual signals to the brain, how the brain interprets these signals is another matter. It has been suggested that zombies have night vision, a fact that explains their skill at nocturnal hunting. This theory has been debunked by the fact that all zombies are expert night feeders, even ones without eyes.
Zombies have, literally, no physical sensations. All nerve recptors throughout the body remain dead after reanamation.This is truly their greatest and most terrifying advantage over the liveing. Th inability to recognize and avoid pain is what makes the walking dead so formidable. Wounds will not be noticed and, therefore, will not deter an attack. Even if a zombie's body is severy damaged, it will continue to attack until nothing remains.
Despite legends and ancient folklore, undead physiology has proven to possess no powers of regeneration. Cells that are damaged stay damaged. Any wounds, no matter what their size and nature, will remain. The inability to self-repair, something that we as living take for grated, is a severe disadvantage to the undead. For example, every time we physically exert ourselves, we tear our muscles. With time, these muscles rebuild to a stronger state that before. A ghoul's muscle mass will remain damaged, reducting it's effectiveness every time it's uesd.
Ghouls possesss the same brute force as the living. What power can be exerted depends greatly on the individual zombie.The one solid advantage that the living dead do possess is amazing stamina. Imagine working out, or any other act of physical exertion. Chances are that pain and exhaustion will dictate your limits. These factors do not apply to the dead. They will continue an act, with the same dynamic energy, until the muscles supporting it literally disintegrate.
They can't run!
