Which mapping entities are for ZP?
Where should i put the entities at (suggestions for best gameplay ballance?)
How many of these entities should I place, if necessary?
BTW expect something nice from me on monday. :rolleyes:
(you should look like :huh: and then :lol: otherwise something's wrong with your brain, if you can't figure it out.)

I have to know you know what entities are before I can help ya :P You don't sound so sure :P

Entities are doors, moveable crates, and other objects that the player can interact with or have some meaningful use in-game. They do not block visibility calculations like normal brushes do, so having a door entity halfway down the hallway wont work out that well.
Which entities are for ZP, and how many of them do i need for my map to work properly for the mod?
I thought my question was strait forward enough... probably too strait forward, eh? :rolleyes:
I just have one more section to do...
Then i'll begin tweaking and other... things, with my map.
Lets just say it's a large map, consuming nearly 70-85% of all available build-space top-down, and 1/5th from the side in VHE... and my original plans were grander. B)
[built in about .8 to 1.7 weeks, i might add; held in my brain for far longer, though, so i had a good mental image...]

Just normal HL entities.
You will need to d/l the zp fgd also. It has 2 zp specific entities info_team1 and info _team2
That's IIRC. Havn't been able to check in a few days...

I would hope that those two entities specific to ZP (info_team1/info_team2) are all that i need to place...
not like other mods where other special entities are required (res nodes in NS, bomb sites in CS, capture points in DoD, etc)

well, one for each spawn you want.. and also you would need to place weapons and junk.

For now, those are the only mod specific entities we have so far, though they are critical.

use the modified FGD posted on the forums, it has some of the more useful NS entities (info_texlights, etc)

Shotguns, Assualt Rifles, 357's (the other, revolver-like pistol fyi) Grenades and Satchels (only 1!) all with their respective ammo. I also have medpacks and batteries in my level.
Just wondering if these are the weapons that every zombie panic map should have.

Ideally you need 31 survivor spawns and 31 zombie spawns to support HL max of 32 players

Excellent, because i just sent 40 minutes compiling it, and i would hate to have to spend another 40 re-compiling with replaced/altered entites.

No, you just would have to add the switch -onlyents to csg when compiling it. It just updates the entities and does nothing else.
