Hey,I saw that there is a Dawn of the Dead mod being worked on right now. Though, between all the zombie horror genre, eg.Day of the dead,dawn of the dead,resident evil,resident evil2,28 days later, and Land of the dead. Resident Evil takes all in my opinion, so its to my delight to present this request,on behalf of resident evil fans everywhere- to you the modding community. To make a resident evil mod, based off the movie except with out the girl in the red dress and slight changes in the movie.(captain getting cut up by the lazers,along with the medic, and other two guys.)
This is the idea,you enter the masion as in the movie as a member of the special ops team U.B.C.S., to find out what has happened down in the hive. After recieving a distress call from inside the facility, the higher branches of the Umbrella corporation, want to find out what has happend down there and adress it. So they send an elite team of U.B.C.S soldiers, there to infiltrate the hive and shutdown the Red Queen. You are Adrian Cooper, a medic for the team and a rookie youve been with this unit for less than a month. Everyone expects alot from you, and gives you a hard time, but now theyre going to have to depend on each other.
Especially you... as your team goes deeper inside the facility, unlocking the mystery of what happened inside of the Hive. Restoring power,breaching doors,Hacking computers,taking point,disabling security systems, and tending the wounds of your comrades. Their lifes and the sucess of the mission lies in your hands, if you make mistakes people die or get hurt..badly. Many things will happen in your time in the hive, you will see things and hear things that no human being should see. You will see people devoured before your eyes,screaming reaching out to you and beging you to help them, but you cant and you watch them go down in a crowd of flesh eating zombies.
Always on alert,anticipating every move walking, through dark eerie hallways flooded with water and trash. Your finger on the trigger ready to fire into anything that shows its teeth at you. The water dripps on to your head, always reminding you of this cold dark place, and what is going on down here. You reach the fuse box and slowly turn on the power, afraid of what might be revealed out of the dark and into the light. As the light, starts to flood the room..images appear,they begin to take shape,pale blue eyes stare at you, and calmly you flip off the safety.
The loud snap of the safety breaks the silence, heads snap at your direction, mouths open revealing sharp jagged teeth, and loud hisses and breaths. Erupt from their mouthes and they begin to move quickly to your position, you squeeze off a few rounds hitting them in the chest, they fall down like all things are suppose to but they get back up. You fire again putting more lead into them, same thing...they just keep coming. You begin to panic and start spraying into the croud of zombies, you empty the magazine, and draw out your side arm, but you dont have time to fire. As a zombie grabs you and tries to tear your neck open, but you pistol whipped it in the side of its head and fire a round off straight between its eyes.
You yell for help, and all of you begin firing into the crowd of undead, bullets flying everywhere,hitting lights,tearing concrete up, and empty shells hit the ground. With a happy jingle, but you have to soon fallback as you become surrounded by hoardes of zombies.
You have to leave quickly as you have no more ammunition,and your team mates are going hand to hand with the infected. Your team captain finds a door,but its locked he tells you to put in the security code. You fumble with the codes, and try desperately to open the door, and then your captain then pushes you out of the way. He yells at you for the code and you tell him 9235, he enters it, the keypad reads acess granted, he yells see how that was!
This is what im able to type so far,my hands hurt now so just tell me what you think, and do you think its possible.:deal: This is an idea/request anyone mod team can take it im just supplying background information.;)
Here are some reference pictures
It's quite possible to do actually, the hive part anyway..mansion would be difficult though. Zombies could be reskinned with different outfits, and some of them could be defualts. The guns,well I alreay saw that somebody made a colt.45 looking skin,so if that was done in silver,thats one gun done. The other guns that would have to be done from scratch would be the raging bull pistol,and saw gun,9mm pistol,and the m4 acog,the Hkmp5k smg(foldable stock lazer and scope),the g3a6(foldable stock and lazer),and the g3a6 compact(grenade launcher attachment,and scope). The models,would have to be done from scratch as well, since people would be umbrella corporation commandoes and not UAC marines.
Now admit it people you would have fun,with weapons like those,:nodding:
Also post what you think should bed done to improve the mods basis,explain your version.
Almost everything is possible with a large modding team I would like to see a resident evil mod but there are just too many for my liking.
Not for Doom3 there isnt.....RE with Doom3 graphics I would give kill for that.(not to mention cookies) The suspense that this mod,would create and the scare factor..would be huge. Especially,with some great zombies sounds and high screeching earsplitiing noises. Then the ability to play with Hk's and a squad of individuals helping you,I would love that. Not to mention,the puzzle factor,and challenges of lets say..overwhelming force,security defense systems,limited ammo,and the danger of being biten...:naughty:
Wouldnt everyone love to see Kaplan being pulled out of a train by a huge monster,screaming? Then again seeing One* beeing diced by a lazer sysytem,and see Jb being pulled into a crowd of zombies? Witness Rain campoe being turned into a zombie?
Or the alteranate version,maybe they make it out alive?....you decide their fate as well as your own.
Might be a good idea, but I'm sorry to say that asking nicely doesn't go very far with the modding community. Most people prefer strongly to work straight from their own ideas, and stick to their guns. Perhaps something will come about it, but you could always give it a shot yourself. Mapping isn't hard to pick up, you just need to be a little artsy. The scripts and def files in Doom 3 are rather easy to get accustomed to, and the rest of the team could be organized by a little recruiting (coders, modelers, music, etc.)

Music I can do, I right stories for mods and when I get a mike im going to pick up voice acting.(I can only do bad guys though) I think its the best idea though,becuase no one has thought about an RE mod based of the movie,with minor tweaks in the story. The minor tweaks being taking out those three gay people matt(treehugger) Alice(nobody wearing a red dress has a place in Re), and spence(you could keep him but he's not uniformed so ..but we could have him getting eaten):D
We could have broken t-virus capsules lying around on the floor of the labs...and anti-virus ones. We could also have a weapons sytem, that you can have only one primary(if you dont have the back pack),then 2 secondary weapons,not to mention grenades,which you carry six of. The back pack allows you to carry more weapons and items,but you sacrifice some of your speed but not by much you can still out run zombies...but when you meet up with the badguy ditch it becuase you will die!!!(choose your weapons wisely,not to mention items):)
You should also be able to issue commands like, hold this position,treat wound,and follow me.
By badguy I mean the mutated monster,That pulls kaplan out of the train. It can climb up,the sides of walls and upside down on the ceiling truly terifying. Maybe in the mod,if it ever gets taken up by a mod team, could have a golfcart, and a forklift. When in the still under construction part of the hive, when you go down the long dark tunnel that leads to that area.
Let me just interject here. If you are going to do a Resident Evil mod, and I suggest it be done for Doom 3, DONT make it on the movies. The movies deviate quite a bit from the excellence that is resident evil. In the movie they make the zombies have normal eyes, which takes the creepiness WAY out of them, I think one of the great things resident evil (THE GAME) did was gave them white eyes and made them slow. And tried to minimize human like qualities, which is what scares people. The story in the game is also much more detailed and interesting than the story in the movie. They dont explain well enough how the virus works, what it does, how it infects you. The science of the virus is what makes it unique, because it doesnt need magic to work, which is another part of why it is scary, it is semi-explainable, where as Dawn of the Dead and all that crap are not done by normal means. Resident Evil mods and movies are supposed to appeal to the Resident Evil fans, and the movies didnt do a great job of that. Like in Appocalyps how Angela ashford was a child, and good. And how Alex Ashford was wiped from the story completely. The people who will play your mod will mostly be Resident Evil Fans, and your goal should be to make it appeal to them. In which case if I were you I would go by the Game story not the movie.
