I was lookin through the servers on css and found some zombie horde servers, and what you do is, its about 8 human players vs 20 bot zombies (humans can be zombies aswell).

The zombies have 444 health that regerates 10 every 3 seconds, and they can only use knives. And the only way zombies are damaged are with direct headshots.

Humans are just normal, normal health, normal guns.

The reason i ask LNY to see if they could set up a ZH server is because most of the ZH servers arent ideal for people in the UK to play in. I got a ping of around 300 - 400 in all of them and got auto kicked. Overall its a really fun css mod to play. And the zombies do actaully look like zombies and sound like zombies to :D

So just a thought guys :)

We couldn't support more servers than we already have right now :( If we get more donations, it might be a possibility, along with bringing back the speed server :)

along with bringing back the speed server Smile
Hopefully this is bottom priority.

One of the guys at www.X-LANS.co.uk has a Zombies server running, the IP is 212.187.246.14:27015. I've not tried it, but he says it's a blast!

Well if mcbain is serious about getting a new machine i can get lots of the bits, obiosly not the high end graphic but i could get ahtlon 64 +3500, with 300gig hdd and a reasonable board eaiserly, o btw the way i can prob run a server from my machine if needed.

we don't actually make the machine ourself. We rent one from www.cs-servers.co.uk at around

Around 50 pounds a month sounds like a good target, lets try and reach it.

Or what we could do is, turn the warcraft server into a ZH server and run it as a ZH server for a few weeks, they we will do a vote on the forums which one they prefer, ZH or Warcraft...

Just a thought

Have played a zombie mod and thought it was pants to be honest. Was about 2 months ago so it could have been different to the one Cyph is talking about. Warcraft server seems to be pretty popular at the mo, be a shame to get rid of it if people want to play.

yeah, I have never found a decent zombie server. And if it's not got enough people it really sucks....

currently, we are puching our CPU hard with the 4 public servers. it is running at over 90% all of the time, and when there is a map change, it goes to 100%, which is why we get lag on the other servers when there is a map change on 1.

Running a ZH server will chew more CPU than the warcraft server, as it will always have a hoarde of bots in, and bots chew CPU.

realisticaly, if we want to run any more servers, we need to get more funding. I feel that it is only worthwhile getting another dedicated server, as 2 20 man public server would be

ZH servers rock i [play on them all the time and tbh i havenmt found myself laggin on the servers i play

but if we did get a ZH server we would have to restrict certain weapons other wise it would be too easy and not fun at all

Does this mean for all the servers we run it costs us
