Nocturnal Zombies

Zombies often stand around in groups doing nothing until they see or hear something. But not at Night Time!
This mod will gives Zombies nocturnal instincts that kick in once it gets dark. From 10:00pm to 5:00am Zombies Primal hunting instincts will take effect and they will be moving around a lot more, scattering in random directions and be restlessly searching ... for you.

UPDATE: added 2 hours of terror! from when the clock strikes midnight 00:00 to 2:00am zombies harvest the energy from the moon and gain a significant speed boost ! you cannot afford to be outside during this time!
NOTE: you can disable 2 hours of terror by removing or deleting "2HoursOfTerror.lua" From the directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\108600\730679898\mods\nocturnal zombies\media\lua\client\

Tested and working on Multiplayer

Nice work, it's good to see someone more competent release a proper fix.

Ty, @cerastes, I used your code as a basis.
And ofc thanks Nolan for original idea and mod.

I think I fixed this mod (and made some other experimental changes too). If you're interested, try replacing the nocturnalzombies.lua file from this mod with this version:

This mod made my nights threatening again. If you no longer wish to work on it thats fine, but it'd be nice if it was updated <3

Does this mod still work? I am very much interested.

@nolanritchie No, it didn't. The feature the Dev's added DRASTICALLY slows down zeds during the opposite time of day, making them useless, and they only move normally during the time you actually picked. It isn't good at all.
