Wow, out of all my unfinished projects, I actually finish something and put it up on Newgrounds!

As this is my first published work, I guess there will be things that need to be improved. If you could point these out, I'd be very grateful.

I might be making a second guide, with more information, and some basic animation. I didn't include animation in this because I'm still practising, but I feel animation would explain things better than text can.

If you have differing views about any of the information in this guide, please don't hesitate to share in the reviews, or a PM.

Anyway, sources I used can be found in the credits at the end. Hope you enjoy and learn something from this!

Edit: Oh yeah, if you like, submit to the Zombies collection, it would be much appreciated ^_^

Basically this is a breach of copyright/plagerism

This is just capied out of the book with a few changed words. I understand what your trying to do but
1. you missed the major fact that infection is caused by a virused of unknown source called solanum
2.you put this on the internet causing some/most of Max Brooks book info to be irrelevant. Do not do this again or you may and will be eventually sued. Nice try though.


MrAids responds:

Sorry, I hadn't seen this.

I'll admit this took the same format as the book and perhaps turned out too similar than I had intended, but I did not directly copy the text out of the book. Altering the information to my liking and compiling it with other zombie films, texts, games as well as my own personal material does not breach the copyright. Any future projects of this nature will stray more from the book if that is any comfort to you.

I did not mention Solanum because again, I did not want to replicate the book in this flash, merely to use it as a reference.

The information in this flash is not directly copied from the book, and those that wish to read it will find there has been many alterations made to the information provided, and much of the information is my own.

I also see no reason why I would be sued. I have not profited on this flash in any way, and I never intended to. This is merely here for entertainment purposes, and for those who wish to further explore the theme of zombies should read Max Brook's work. I had also acknowledged in the credits that The Zombie Survival Guide has attributed to this guide, and I did not pass off all of this work as my own.

If you wish to discuss this with me further, please do so via PM.

Why using radio instead of the internet ?

Almost every home have the internet , the internet cable are not exposed so they wont be easely destroyed , i have a solar plate , so i will have all the electricity i want. A type of armor I like are the plate metal armor with hydromechanisme resistant movement systeme with a electronic heat modulator. Anyways zombie are not that dangerous is a human walking capacity with a spreading factor , roof bridge systeme will be good for travelling into a city , from roof to roof , zombie can't do shit. Humans survivors are more dangerous , especially if one of them become a ennemy.


MrAids responds:

Who would keep the internet and electricity running when everyone's a zombie? Most radio's run on batteries, and you can send your own message to other possible survivors, and receive emergency broadcasts.

All plate armour is heavy. Try fighting in a suit of armor, and see how slow you are. Plus, the features you're talking about run on power, which might be cut off eventually.

Assuming you are talking about inner city rooftops, zombies have access to rooftops through stairs, so rooftops in inner cities are not a safe travelling route. Rooftops anywhere else are likely to be spread apart and too great a distance to jump, and carrying something to cross would weigh you down. Staying on the one roof that can only be accessed with a ladder is good for a small time, but they are not liveable.

Human survivors indeed can be dangerous, that's why stealth at all times would not only decrease zombie encounters, but human encounters as well. You would see/hear survivors before they see/hear you, and you have the option to stop and join with them or ignore them and move on.

The same with the guy under!

Really neat, though, I didn't really need it 'cause I know a zombie from inside-out! But if I forget ANYTHING, I'll be sure to check this out(Unless the zombies haven't destroyed any Internet cables). Really neat man! But I wasn't really sure why you need a bandana. Until I kind of forgot and it's for when you or a friend is hurt and you useit as a band aid. And yeah if zombies over run Columbus, I'm better to kill them all with my MTAR21(I'm in SWAT team so I have skills).
P.S. If you want a good zombie story go to my page and look at some of my latest posts ad you will soon find a story called Death and Undead. Once again, nice flash and info!


MrAids responds:

And you know, bandana's do serve practical uses...

I mean, that's why they were made.

Nice Detail and Good Organization

This is one of the most detailed online Zombie Guides I've come across, and with the exception of a few misspellings was really simple to read and flowed nicely. The information in this guide was direct and informative; the only things I disagree with are things that fall under "personal preference" and can't actually be called wrong. I wish that text were just a tiny bit brighter or larger, but besides that I have no complaints and I really enjoyed reading this. Really, I think it's a great Job all round.

There were misspellings?!? I ran the whole thing through Spell Check! Lol.

And the text will definetly be larger next time around.
