Re: Special versions of Z DOS

I remember there was a version of Z DOS which was I think a preview build with slightly different maps. I think two maps in the arctic world where swapped and the starting units where a bit different and some grenade boxes where added/removed. Does anyone still have that version?? There is an editi...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

ZED Online looking great so far. I'll have to give it a go myself when I get to it. For now, I present a little project of my own. I sort of recreated Z in a well-known sandbox game , using a mod that lets you add custom entities in the game. It's too limited control-wise to make a proper strategy g...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

They probably dropped the project right after implementing multiplayer for iOS.

You know, it'd be better if Steam just sold the original game bundled with a DOSBox emulator, as they do with DooM classics.

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I agree I prefer the balance of Z DOS. The Zod engine is too different from Z DOS to just copy&paste all the stats. We need to fine-tune all the stats to have the same behaviour as in Z DOS. Pyro are really strong in Zod for example. One unit of 4 pyros can take out a medium tank 70% of the time. T...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

https://zzforum.lewe.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11253 I noticed something I haven't really paid attention to before. In the original Z PC version, vehicles actually had a unique camo colour scheme for each planet. https://preview.ibb.co/dsW2jc/jc.jpg Desert - Olive Volcanic - Dark green Arctic - Silve...

Re: ZED Online - a fork of the Zod Engine

I have a big question regarding the repair facilities: When I repair a tank and during the repair the enemy takes the flag of the repair shop. Does the tank that is at this very moment inside the repair shop belong to the enemy who captured the flag or does the tank still belong to me? And if is st...

Re: the junk yard

Someone in the ideas section mentioned they’d like to see an armored car in the next Z, so here comes the 6-wheeler jeep/tank hybrid.

Re: the junk yard

Yes, those are smoke dischargers.

Also, when you look at the Heavy's sprite in Z, it has these boxes on the sides of its turret. Wonder if they're supposed to be some kind of launchers?

Re: the junk yard

I thought, maybe I'd retool the classic Heavy into a main battle tank or something. The powerful sniper gun and low-profile hull plus a speed & mobility upgrade. Meanwhile, I introduce a new kind of tank to hold the title of Heavy. In case the 152mm Gun-Launcher isn't quite enough, it also comes wit...

Re: the junk yard

I'll be taking a few creative liberties from the original in my Z reboot, introducing such things as multi-crewed vehicles, air and sea units, and a bit of weapon customization. The Jeep's incarnation from Steel Soldiers comes as the Gun Jeep , with better crew protection and ability to mount differ...
