Dependent and Compatible Mods

This mod is prefixed with a number, in order to load it after all dependent mods.

This mod is dependent upon the 0-CreaturePackZombies mod. It was designed and tested to be used with version 19.0.3.41 of that mod. It might not work with older or newer versions of that mod.

Technical Details

This mod includes new non-XML resources (Unity assets). These resources are not pushed from server to client. For this reason, this mod should be installed on both servers and clients.

How the Zombies Were Created

The zombie models were created using one of two programs:

  • Mixamo Fuse – a free program for making human-like characters, including zombies. Unfortunately, after Adobe bought it, it was discontinued and is no longer supported. But it can still be used, and is still very good.
  • MakeHuman – an open source program for making human characters. It includes many community assets.

Once the models were created, he exported them to .obj files, and rigged them in Mixamo. From Mixamo, he exported them to Unity .fbx files.

He then imported them into Unity to set up ragdolls, rigging, tags, material shaders, etc.

None of this would be possible were it not for the help of Xyth and Darkstardragon – thank you!

If you would like to know how to do all this yourself, Xyth has an excellent series of tutorials on YouTube.

Re-Use in Other Mods/Modlets

Any rights that he hold in these characters, he hereby place into the public domain (CC0). Feel free to re-use them in any of your mods or modlets.

However, he doesn’t hold the rights to all the assets in the models. He has used assets from Mixamo Fuse and MakeHuman, and does not hold any rights in those assets. Those rights are retained by Fuse, and/or the members of the MakeHuman community.

This sounds worse than it is. Both the Fuse and MakeHuman assets are released under very lenient licenses, and it should not be any problem for mod authors to include them in their mods:

  • Characters created in Mixamo Fuse may be used in any game (commerical or not) for free, though you cannot repackage and sell the assets.
  • MakeHuman characters can include assets from the MakeHuman team, or community assets. The MakeHuman assets are CC0, and the community assets are usually CC0 or CC-BY. He believe he used CC0 assets in these models, but if not, contact him and he will either give credit or remove the character, as appropriate.

Obviously, the characters also use assets from The Fun Pimps (sounds, animations, etc). The Fun Pimps retain the rights in those assets.

Changelog
