Chainsaw Mod

Adds a ChainSaw to the game.

Have a gas can in your inventory and right click on chain saw to add gas. A chainsaw with gas equipped will automatically start, no need to turn it on. will keep running while equipped.
Can be found in crates, metal shelves, storage units and lockers.

Running ChainSaw stats:
Very slow swing
Makes noise
Max hit 6 targets
1 hit kill most the time vs zombie
2 hit to break door
2 hit to chop tree

Without gas can still be used as weapon with stats comparible to a bat but you will see the slow swing speed makes its suck

If you want to spawn a chainsaw with admin powers the full code name for it is "ChainSaw.ChainSaw"

NOTE: Must have jabs old model loader to see the chainsaw model if you are using build 34. Not needed with Build 35.

hey, maybe you can change the animation. Try anotherone like knife or pen animation, i will more realistic cause chainsaws not swing in real life
by the way, great mod :)

@ShadowCop Hey Man, just saw your last comment, had dropped PZ for a while. I'm about to get back into it and I will definitely check your Chainsaw Mod considering this one hasn't been updated in such a long time ! Thanks !

Hi erveryone I created a complete new chainsaw mod.
Now you are able to fill your chainsaw to 100% fuel by context menu selection.
Also you are able to chop trees by right click on them just the same way you do with axes.
And last but not least I tried to get another option for the text messages, so I added a status window for your chainsaw.

If you want to try my mod please feel free to visit:
or search for ChainsawRevolution.

Many thanks to nolanritchie for his original idea!

I would like to add you as a contributor to my new mod if you want.
Please feel free to check out my rework.

Thanks to erveryone. :)

Do you think it would be possible to have refill options, maybe ? Now it's only 10%, could you maybe add "Refill Half-Tank" and "Refill Full Tank" ? I wiped out all the trees around Muldraugh's North Farm with a friend to build our base in MP, and your mod made me win an unthinkable amount of time but....... I think my right click died in the process ! =-D

Downlaod at first doesn't work(steam warning window) and then dowload starts anyway. Confusing.
