A Spiffy New Vehicle Mod For Killing Floor
And welcome to the week’s most meta post.
Killing Floor started life in 2005 as an acclaimed, zombie based full conversion for Unreal Tournament 2004. Loads of accolades led to the creators’, particularly lead developer Alex Quick, promotion from the minors, as numerous companies attempted to take the game full retail. Tripwire eventually did the honors and the full retail version was relased in May of 09. We all know what this means: The mod that went legit now has a ton of mods of its own, and the latest is a just-released vehicle pack that adds quite a few new ways to kill zeds deader than Britpop as quickly as possible. Let’s give a big round of applause for Killing Floor Vehicle Mod.
Wicked, right? You’ve already been dropped into an English suburb straight out of Shaun of the Dead. And you’re still up against swarm after swarm of completely disgusting undead hordes. But now, you have cars to play smashy smashy with. They also built in a pretty neat limitation in the form of actually having to keep your vehicle fuled up. No more endless gasoline video game driving for you, now you’ll need to periodically risk your life running to grab fuel for the car if you want to keep making zombie windshield paintings.
Other features include:
* 1st person and 3rd person for vehicle visuals.
* A zoom feature for passengers
* A mechanic’s welding tool for on the spot repairs.
And more that you can read about in full, here. Meanwhile, there are three download packs for gamers with different needs:
Version 1001 (Auto) – This one comes with all the necessary files for the Killing Floor Vehicle Mod as a self executable file, but does not include the maps. After installation, you’ll be permitted access to a dedicated server where you’ll find maps on a download redirect.
Version 1001 (Manual) – Same as above, only it’s manual install instead of a self-executable file.
Map Pack 1 – This is the full version. It comes with all Vehicle Mod maps. It’s a larger file but it’s mandatory for players who want to play solo campaigns.
