Little something different - ads I make to recruit people for filming HvZ promotional trailers and episodes! Same style I use for regular game posters.

  • An option to turn a human player into a zombie player without forcing a name for the tag would be nice. We have a fairly honest player base, and sometimes tags don't get reported, even though the person tagged has already been participating as a zombie.

Is there a reason why simply creating a fake zombie player to get the tag won't suffice?

This would probably mean that the zombie who failed to report the tag would not be able to claim the feed later - but, since they didn't report the tag in time, this is hardly unfair.

I don't know if they still offer that - and even then, I think a fee is involved. That said, a lot of game organizers (both past and present) still frequent these forums, and are able to answer any questions you may have.

Although its a few years old, this thread will help with getting things in motion: http://forums.humansvszombies.org/index.php/topic,771.0.html

After that, just read through the forums and ask any questions you may have.

If the petition fails, I recommend filing for an exemption to the policy for your game, as its no different then a group of students getting together and tossing a football around (granted, more people and play is everywhere, but its a similar idea).

Are there any professors really into the game? I just found out that the Computer Science department follows HvZ here pretty closely and had no idea previously that they did. Do you have an intramurals department that might have someone who could volunteer as the advisor? Lindenwood's HvZ is set up as an independent group 'sponsored' by Intramurals so we don't have to worry about all of the organization-related things.

Just some things that myself as well as the players noticed during Lindenwood University's game last week.

  • Chat seems to be broken for both sides. I know it worked in previous games, but neither side seemed to work for anyone, moderator or player alike.
  • An option to turn a human player into a zombie player without forcing a name for the tag would be nice. We have a fairly honest player base, and sometimes tags don't get reported, even though the person tagged has already been participating as a zombie.
  • An option to remove moderators as players but still be treated as players in regards to emails being sent out. As far as I know, CC'ing the moderators doesn't actually do anything for getting them the message, and I know I don't receive any of the messages I send. Since our moderators don't play, we remove them from the player count to get a little better idea on numbers.
  • *Insert moderator dreams for hvzsource website that I've posted half a dozen times previously here, including waivers on signing up and an email-styled inbox for moderators*

Part of the problem we had was figuring out what a good object would be, because we wanted it to be noticeable for players to KNOW it was the object ( like a giant stuff animal), but be not be enticing for non players to steal, or non conspicuous that non players wouldn't want to take it, but also people wouldn't see it and think it might be an actual planted bomb or something ( like a backpack or brief case left unattended ). Now I know that last part seems crazy, but we where playing in a post 9/11 American state collage. We had had problems enough with non players over reacting to just the blasters, and given some of the shooting that had happened, I couldn't  totally blame them, but such as it was.maybe you can succeed where we failed and figure out a decent middle ground.
We managed to successfully run this day mission using an orange storage bin and marking Humans vs. Zombies/HvZ on all sides as well as on top of the lid. It ended up being stashed away for a couple of hours at a time, but the humans ultimately found where the zombies hid it last and hung onto it for the last hour and a half the day mission ran. It was open from 10:30 AM until 7 PM. We ran this mission on Tuesday during a Monday-Friday game with about 140 players.

   I have recently begun drafting a plan to establish a Pittsburgh Urban Gaming Association, which will essentially be an organization that hosts, moderates, and organizes urban gaming events in the greater Pittsburgh area. Since we are still early in the planning process-- I am looking to gather as many volunteers as humanly possible. We have been scoping out local parks and venues to host games, and are already establishing a solid plan for advertising and collaborating with universities in Western PA.
   If you or anyone you know (who lives in Western PA) is interested in volunteering, please shoot me an email or PM, describing your urban gaming experiences and in what capacities you are able to help out.

So, I'm curious- has anyone compared Mega stability and chrono data to micros? I know that even weighted 1/2" darts become unstable at 250+ FPS, even with ported barrels. Has anyone duplicated this experiment with Megas? I'm trying to prove Paintball club utterly wrong- IE I can throw a foam dart, from stock parts (No PVATS, just a Titan tank) over 250 FPS and ~200 foot range.
Has anyone pursued the useless but entertaining Mega Sniper the Centurion was meant to be?

Incidentally, does anyone have a Centurion shell?

I have a centurion which I attempted to mod, but I ended up making it unreliable.  It works except sometimes you need to stick your finger inside to make it work right (giggity).  If you want it I would be happy to part with it since it does nothing my blowgun doesn't.

I am currently a sophomore at Seton Hall University and the Student Activities Board is considering having a game on campus, however I feel that we need a lot of help getting the game started. I saw on the HVZ website last year something about being able to have a representative from HVZ come to schools to help set up the game. Does anyone know if this is still possible, and if so, how to get in contact with them?
