    Hey Guys!

    I have no experience in modding, coding etc. at all... So what I'd like to know is: Would it, theoretically, be possible to make a Zombie Survival Mode that looks roughly (and now be stunned and awestruck by my superior drawing-skills) like this?

    If possible with the zombies spawning in set waves until wave 30 or so at which point they would just spawn like wild without any delay.

    I have been asking myself this question for a long time now so I would appreciate every helpful answer to this.

    Yes, it's possible, but to spawn zombies on the way you want you would need a bot to spawn them using the remote rcon.

    Actually, you can also spawn them using .gm scripts on a per-map basis, you don't actually need to use rcon at all if you have a script set up.

    Strathos and by extension Arcrave figured out a way to spawn zombies at preset spawn points. The gamemode Arcrave created (rapid zombie mode) is hella fun. I have to ask his permission to post some of his code, but literally you can have a folder of custom maps that each have spawns in different places with different types of zombies and spawn-rates. It's a blast.

    Awesome! :D
    ... Well.... While I'm at it... Do you have a link or two to show me where to get started on modding game modes etc.? ... I used the search function already but I guess I used the wrong words or I didn't recognize modding stuff... Even though I used "Modding" as a keyword xD...
