Zombie Spawning Setup
The func_zombie_spawn brushes will automatically fill with zombies the closer the players get to them. If you think there are too many or too few zombies in a specific spawn brush, set the spawn_density to a value between .1 and 10. "10" is 10x normal zombies. ".1" is 10% normal zombies.
Auto-regeneration occurs over time, and most zones are set to auto-regenerate to 60% of their maximum no matter how many zombies are killed. If you would like a zone to deactivate after it's last zombie is killed set spawn_regen_target to 0.
How to setup
In order for zombie spawning to work in your map, you need to place an overlord_zombie_helper entity anywhere in your map. This entity is responsible for handling the spawning of any zombies in the game. You also need to place func_zombie_spawn brushes throughout your map where you want zombies to be able to spawn.
Note: For wave maps, the func_zombie_spawn entities should have its Disable Self Thinking spawn flag checked
Introduced in 1.02
Zombie navigation (and to a lesser extent, spawning) is now controlled with nav meshes; this means you must create a .nav file in order for the func_zombie_spawn brushes to activate properly
To create a .nav you must
- Start NMRiH up and load your map as a local server (highly recommended that you compile the newest version of your map for this purpose)
- Type sv_cheats 0 into the console (` to open console) and hit enter
- Type sv_idle_autokick_enabled 0 into console and hit enter
- Type nav_generate into console and hit enter
Depending on how big and complex the map is, the process will take a few minutes to a few hours.
