    Could I interest anyone in trying out a mutation I'm testing? Shoot me a pm or just say something here, and maybe we could work out a game!
    eh, come to think of it, it's kinda stupid not to just give it out and see what happens. i'll make it a little easier to get started without some dick giving you a list of instructions when I get home.
    Just.
    I got no idea what the game is like with people that aren't already friends/friendly teammates (that's why i wanted to ask internet strangers), and bots have no idea what the hell they're doing ever, so be warned.

    I had an idea for a game mode...
    It'd be sorta like Infestation in Aliens VS Predator.

    Basically, it starts like a regular campaign.
    But once a survivor is killed, they are switched over to the Special Infected team.

    To ensure that they DO actually die, some alterations could be made, maybe make Medkits scarce.

    Obviously, it wouldn't be a "serious" game mode, but more of a "get a few friends and fuck around" game mode.

    Dunno, mite b cool.

    So, uh. "A way to make it easier to start" turned into "add it to the main menu" turned into "fix the fact that it erased all the campaigns" turned into etcetcetc and
    i guess somehow it turned into this
    (takin down the link cause it's either that, or keep updating each slightly less broken version for the sake of the one or two people total who will ever click it)

    With
    some
    explanation
    pictures

    i didn't really expect to put this much into making it playable, so now i'm kinda hoping there's some mutation repository

    Someone should make a Shaun of the Dead campaign.


    Stage 1- Suburbs
    Stage 2- Liz's Apartment
    Stage 3- Mum's House
    Stage 4- The Back-Alleys
    Finale- The Winchester


    Mum's House can end in a "gas up the car" event and the Winchester Finale would be set to "Don't Stop Me Now", until the survivors need to flee to the basement and pile onto the lift.

    Realism Mode removes ALL guns; nothing but melee weapons until you reach the Winchester.

    Maybe have some custom weapons (throwable vinyl records, pool cues, etc.) and set pieces (use trampolines to get over fences, etc.)

    And of course, the survivors would be Shaun, Ed, Liz, and either David or Mum.

    Dunno, I think it'd make for a pretty bitchin' campaign.

    Does anybody know a good mutation repository site thing to use?
    Lookin for a place where I can update it, get feedback, that whole deal. I've found a few sites for mods in general, but they seem to be focused on stuff like making nick look like the joker or zoey topless

    If I remember correctly, only in Left 4 Dead. In L4D2 they started replacing limited hordes from the first game with gauntlet hordes, the ones you can't beat and have to escape from.

    I'm pretty sure the elevator horde in the L4D2 version of No Mercy keeps going until you all board the elevator and start up to the roof.

    What? I've played No Mercy tons of times and we always camp out that one room and then when the hordes all dead we run to the elevator. Is it only like that in Versus? L4D2 by the way.

    Yeah I'm doing L4D 1 campaigns and can confirm this. You can stay there forever.

    Looking back I wonder how I played this so much, just the same campaigns over and over.

    I really wish they'd make new ones, because a lot of the community survival maps are like every 5 seconds "HERE JUST TAKE ANOTHER TANK YOU'LL BE RIGHT"

    The Three Stooges (Larry, Curly, Moe, and Shemp)    technically four, shut up   
    Abbot and Costello

    admit it, you'd play it.

    I think Abbot and Costello and Laurel and Hardy would make a good team of four.

    Say, if Valve does another installment in the Left 4 Dead franchise, what kind of gameplay changes would you wanna see? Personally, i'd be interested in seeing it take the gameplay in the direction of survival in the game world, as opposed to merely escaping from a location to get somewhere safe.

    Another thing i'd kinda like to see would be the Survivors, technically carriers of the infection, be able to augment their capabilities by using mutagens taken from the Special Infected. Their ability to survive in a world ravaged by the infection would be tied to how willing they are to sacrifice their humanity and adapt, plus it'd likely give them some cool abilities to work with.

    And one of the last things i'd like to see would be Survivors being able to struggle against the attacks of certain special infected, like trying to rip out the tongue of a Smoker, or throw a Jockey off their backs. It might lower a Survivor's need for a helping hand, but having a few more independent capabilities would be a nice touch.

    You guys thought of anything?

    not like spaceships and shit, but a few years after the first infection, just to see what society has progressed (or regressed) to since the infection hit.

    Edited:

    either that, or something in California, if only to get a Hollywood Backlot/Theme Park campaign.

    I'd like them to keep the basic premise and gameplay of L4D1/2. But I'd also like to see it take place in Europe, going from say Greece, through England, France and up to Russia. And I'd also like to see them flesh out the current roles and abilities of the infected. Hunter would be great if he had some Mirror's Edge-esque parkour skills, and Smoker's had the ability to set off smoke alarms and fire sprinklers if they were killed in the right place.

    Plus handicaps for public versus games. The larger the point gap between the two teams, the more significantly the winning team is handicapped - vision-impairing storms, cut-off routes, less items through their playthrough.

    All that can be done in L4D2 some way or another.

    Edited:

    I agree with seeing the future of society, but I'd like a different approach to gameplay. Right now it's run and gun from point A to point B, that's pretty much it. A more open world to explore would be pretty neat, in my opinion, though not like GTA or Dead Rising. The four survivors would start where The Parish ended, you're stuck in holding cells similar to The Sacrifice comic, the whole base goes to shit and you've gotta get out, then the whole game world is yours to explore and alter (of course as far as the zombies allow it). This means you could garrison the military base or blow it to shit, travel all the way to some awry shithole and garrison that up.
    Though I guess that gets boring as shit fast. There's no goal.

    I'd like Valve to focus more on Campaign mode. Weapons, game mechanics, map design that won't necessarily work in Versus, but would be glorious in Campaign. Of course it would be Campaign only.

    Also, I would like to see a realism mode that is more than just "no outglow. zombies take less damage" I what to see something fucking unique. Something like the L4D Apocalypse mod (too bad it's dead now).

    I want more dynamic maps, more types of uncommon common zombies and greater emphasis on searching the items.

    Also I wrote much more detailed suggestions on my blog some time ago. Please share your opinions if you read them.

    Also all the mentioned about better campaign, better survivors (no dumb like rochelle or ellis please..) improved look of infected, no more dumb weapons (frying pan killing charger.. facepalm)

    More guns. 3 times more guns, preferrably the kinds that fit the setting.

    In a rainy city like in No Mercy, which do you think is more likely to be found? A flashlight-clad M1911 or a completely decorated Sig Sauer?

    A perspective from the military's point of view. Like a group of 4 soldiers who are carriers but in the shit. Military type high-grade weapons and some comical, serious characters.

    Edited:

    Well another normal HURR IM A NORMAL SURVIVOR would be boring.

    Think military survivor like Day of the Dead.
