Infection Mode: Cursed Manor

Cursed Manor is the first in a series of maps inspired by 'Infection' or 'Zombie' game modes seen in a few other games.

All players initially start out on one team except for one player who is on the undead team. Whenever a player on the living team is slain, they will automatically join the undead team. Living players start out unarmed but weapons and armor will spawn at random locations within the castle for them to find. The game continues until there are no players remaining on the living team or enough time has passed since the last slaying.

Note: This is NOT a mod. It is a custom map and it does not require any mods to run.

Special thanks to Big Beans for providing sound effects and the item pickup particle effect.

Best time to play on the server(s) with this map?

I subscribed to it, but I can't find it in my map list to start a server with it.

Played this map the other day. It's fun to jump onto the chandeliers. I'm very impressed with your map making skills Egg. :steamhappy:
F.A. Hayek Feb 18, 2016 @ 8:56am 
Ah yes, I didn't notice that change from 30 seconds to 15. This seems fair enough!
❊Eggplant  [author] Feb 17, 2016 @ 12:27pm 
The mark was changed to trigger at 15 seconds remaining instead of 30. From what I've seen so far, that's been short enough that the marked player is able to survive more often than not. The babbling makes things harder, but the timer is also significantly shorter than it used to be for that phase of the round, so you don't have to stay hidden for as long. The babbling also has a much shorter radius than normal voice commands, so you have to be closer to hear it.

I may tweak it some more after further testing, but so far I'm seeing the living team win more often than they used to because of these changes.

That new babbling thing makes it even harder to survive. Undeads already had an OP advantage during the last 30 seconds (curse marking).
❊Eggplant  [author] Nov 15, 2015 @ 5:56pm 
It would still be too big of a focus on projectiles. I don't want the living team players to be getting killed regularly by unblockable attacks, which IMO would be incredibly frustrating when it means the end to your one life on the living team. The first undead spawns with throwing axes, but he's the only exception to the rule.
Nobody Nov 15, 2015 @ 5:44pm 
Maybe not slings but throwing axes / knifes should be a better choice for undeads. No ammo crates but they can refill by spawning only.
❊Eggplant  [author] Nov 15, 2015 @ 5:38pm 
Giving the undead slings would turn the mode into nothing but archer vs archer battles, which I absolutely don't want to happen.
Nobody Nov 15, 2015 @ 4:53pm 
Hey, I wonder if you have considered allowing undeads to have slings because It gets annoying to deal with campers at certain spots in Ruins.
Hell Ryder Nov 1, 2015 @ 12:33pm 
o... ok
