    [POC] Classic Nomad Survival



    Welcome to the Classic Nomad Survival (CNS) mod, from sphereii and xyth, a new sphereii-mental Proof of Concept mod.

    Enter our world, and test your survival skills in this limited-crafting Romero-style mod, inspired by Valmar's Classic Horde Survival mod.

    ******

    Based on vanilla XML, with twists from the Magoli's Compo Pack and Tin's magical rwgmixer settings, CNS offers experienced players fresh new challenges, along with new mechanics that will influence the world and you. Challenge yourself and your friends as you fight for your very survival in this hardcore mod where loot and scoot is the name of the game.

    Code contributions from a variety of people, including StompyNZ, HAL9000, Carlzilla, stedman420, Mortelentus and TormentedEmu.

    ******

    You've asked for this mod. And you probably asked the wrong people to make it.

    A tip o' the hat to "Val" of Valmod. His Classic Horde Survival mod was a favorite of mine...as it was challenging but didnt require days of commitment to enjoy it.

    This mod continues in that tradition, it is perfect for those players who only have a few hours to play every few days. Those hours will feel like a lifetime in this mod. See how many days you can survive.

    The mod will need balancing, especially in the loot system and mid game progression, so please provide suggestions how we can improve it. Enjoy, and let us know how what you think.

    Thanks for reviving CHS.

    Really nice. Main concept is from CHS, but I saw many well-managed feature for CNS.

    One of the main features in any SphereII-Mental mod is to showcase proof of concept mechanics that do not exist in other mods. Most are hidden, and players will stumble onto them if they pay attantion. Many things just work "differently" or are impossible to do in vanilla due to code changes.

    Actually the MOD is very HARD CORE, some points are positive and others negative.

    Liked it:
    You lose 1 life when you hit with your hand.
    "Zumbi tracks you with torch heat.
    -Map is nice.


    Negatives:
    - No Axestone
    -Does not have a wooden club
    -Spikes you need Duct Tape, Jesus what ??
    -1 arrow 3 feathers like this ??

    among others, I am still playing and trying to understand the logic behind certain things.

    I really wanted to find out how you set up for the zombies to track down the heat so fast !!

    If you do the Direct Download, or download the master.zip, the mod should be about 150 megs. Once extracted, it's quite a bit bigger.

    We are glad you are enjoying this.

    We decided to severely limit your crafting, especially items people use right from the start to end game, like the axe and bow. It has a wood club, but you cannot craft it. Instead, look for drift wood, and small trees with 15 HP to get a starter club.

    For the spikes, something needs to hold the spikes together

    Paper cuts. The idea is to think out of the box, and use what you have at hand, that's not your hands. Use flash light, sharp stone, torch, club, etc.

    This mod does not need to make total sense; it's intention is to challenge and change play styles.

    There is an alternative to the stone ax that you can craft. The tutorial teaches you.
    Have you ever seen an arrow with 1 feather? It takes 3 or 4. Common sense there.
    Woodclub-like and other weapon objects exist all around you. Not going to spoil it, but try some things.
    How would you hold a group of spikes together without rope? Duct tape.

    A question please, are the prefab files changed somehow to specifically fit the mod, or could I add some extra custom-prefabs on top?
