Hey this post was partially brought to you by this one so check it out
The general idea of this post is to think of some different events that change how the turned zombie guys “think”.
In 3.x all we have is the full moon, it makes zombies spawn more often and more aggressive, this is a great way to shake things up, but once you have a bullet and a few guns it gets a little stale.
In 4.x, instead of complicating the fullmoon, maybe adding different events would be a better way to go.
TL:DR this makes zombies migrate through different zones
During a full moon, the light being reflected from the moon is the highest through the whole lunar cycle, making it easier for zombies to see. If they can see better then they can move better right.
The zombies in this phase have a one main goal, to get from their original location to their destination. They would mostly begin to move at the same speed, slowing or speeding up depending on the zombie’s type. In turn, the migrating zombies will chomp whatever lies in their path, including but not limited to: cars people animals trees pennies grass and ceramic.
The eyes of the zombies would glow white, using eachother as beacons of a horde.
TL:DR this makes zombies more aggressive and powerful. (3.x moon)
A blood moon in real life is essentially a lunar eclipse, but it would make more sense instead of randomly spooking/messing with players that this would occur during a new moon. It’s better to have a predictable event with unpredictable consequences rather than an unpredictable event that gets you unfairly.
The blood moon would make zombies harder, more aggressive and more intelligent, hearing and seeing further in front of them with glowy red night-vision eyes. (Yeah they hear with their eyes so what)
TL:DR The blue moon would be a reverse blood moon, making zombies docile unless provoked.
On the opposite end of the lunar cycle from the blood moon, a blue moon would occur, having a chance to take over full moons. During this state, zombies would go lovey dovey and avoid players, but defend themselves only when attacked.
Their eyes would glow blue like the moon, signalling their passivity.
WAIT WAIT WAIT
There is a catch to each lunar event though, zombies will only affect zombies with eyes beneath moonlight. This means reclusive 40 year old basement zombies will be a no show in a horde, as will zombies that rely on hearing. (the ones with no eye balls)
Tell me what you think
- These are all cool
- A few of these are cool
- One of these are cool
- This is all terrible
