what there needs to be in there is a way for the humans to fight back once the popultion of zombies reaches a certain extent based on their surroundings and the size of their party, because right now I got a little group of humans quarantined nicely in a room that's not very accessible, they could get out one by one and wipe them suckas out.

I did notice the humans sometimes 'barricade' themselves too making for a very bleak ending, and are in dire need of weapons. What this sim needs is a good flamethrower! They've been losing all afternoon.

The advanced version seems to just pause after a while. :|


Oh, it is because they killed the zombie. That seems to happen often with me. :|

Everyone turned into zombies in that simulation in the time it took for me to take a ****.

So, if you find yourself in a city beset by zombies and fighting for survival... WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T TAKE A TOILET BREAK.

Exclamation 28 seconds later

@ STM

Nice simulator, but it seems pretty clear that the only hope humans have is to contain the threat and remove it as soon as possible. Also, it seems that the smaller the open area the first zombie appears in, the slower the infection spreads. In large open areas, the infection spreads faster, because panic spreads, removing the human's ability to fight back.

Its a little known fact that the reason for the 2nd Ammendment to the US Constitution is so that Humans would have ready acess to Shotguns when the Zombie hordes invade. If you saw 28 Days, You would see that Engeland, with it's gun laws, Is one of the worse places to be in a zombie attack. In the US You can break into a loot a gun-shop, Kmart, Walmart etc... and have all your anti-zombie needs met.

Double bah at human dots for not fighting their way out and dieing for my amusement.

Please refer to the many times I have declaired spelling autonomy from the English language, Forming my own language D66rish. This was established 2 years ago, both here and on IRC

Roughly it translates as: 'America's gun laws allow us to protect ourselves from the undead... which is a good thing considering the huge zombie army that could grow from the corpses of those who get shot in America every year'
