Note to the people linked here via gaming websites: This is *not* a mod. It is a adventure map with a custom skin. No coding has taken place, and there is no need to mess with the .jar files. Hope that clears up some of the confusion I've been seeing!

Known Issues



-If you load the map while your difficulty setting is on "Peaceful", Diamond Chestplate can cause invincibility. If this happens to you, either don't use the armor, or spawn yourself an iron chestplate in its stead. You can also try reloading the map after you set the difficulty level to something else.

I only wish my friend wasn't on vacation so that I could do a co-op recording with him. Definitely downloading this map, and I'll try to make a solo recording if I can. Oh god this looks awesome.

This should be getting more attention! Just finished recording the first level, and it was quite fun. I do admit that I got a bit lost though, heh. The only problem I noticed was that I think the diamond chestplate had made me invincible - I was hit quite a bit, but never took damage. I've seen this happen with other maps that gave diamond armor, but I'm not sure why.

And your choice of mob and item substitution was brilliant,
Spoiler:
The scenery design was also quite amazing. It's obvious that you put a ton of work into this, and it was not wasted at all.

I'm editing the first part of my Let's Play of your map right now. I'll post it as soon as it uploads to YouTube. Again, great job.

What a weird bug. I've never heard of that happening before. Is anyone else having that problem? I'll probably have to take them out if that's the case.

You should find a way to add a few guns! Nothing would feel more legit like shooting those zombies in the head with a good Desert Eagle!

I'd honestly be surprised if it worked on my computer anyway. I run OSX 10.5 and the only mod I can get to work properly is the zombe mod pack.

And I figure this way it's more accessible since I'm not relying on another developer to update their mods, and I know I'm not the only one who has issues installing mod packs.

Yea, macs are a little harder to get mods to work on. I can do it fast and easily with PCs, but when i tried on a mac, I had a hard time.

Awesome!

You have a fantastic speaking voice, btw. I want to see the rest when you're done!

ps. Are you sure the invincible bug isn't a product of one of your other mods? What a weird bug.

Thanks, there should be three other videos for the first level, and they'll come out throughout the next two weeks or so (we have other videos in our upload list). I'll definitely play through the other levels as well, I want to see the boss round, haha.

Later in my playthrough I cycle through all of the commands that could prevent mob damage, and the bug didn't go away. I'll try putting on some diamond armor and playing another map, but like I said, this has happened to me and my friend (silent_boom) before on other maps (where the other people playing the map noticed the odd bug as well).

Either way, great job again.
