Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.

Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.

General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.

  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.

    4. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    5. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.[/COLOR]
  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!

Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
[COLOR=darkred]Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.

Examples:
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.

A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.




Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

  • [Re-skin/Mutator] The Rotting

    I've seen so many pieces of work and always thought hell, I wish I could do that, so secretly behind the scenes I've been learning the Inns and outs of texturing and coding for KF and I'm now at the point where I feel confident enough to publicly announce the project I'm working on.

    I'm not going to give too much away in terms of content so I've attached just the one picture, but I'll detail the overview.

    Story:

    The Rotting: 5 Months after the infection took hold, the Specimens roam the streets in search for their next meal, but unfortunate for them, the menu ran dry a long time ago, with almost everybody already dead or mutated, the Specimens have no source of food, and with no food, the Specimens are litterally Rotting to death.

    But these are tough little buggers, the hunger makes them a faster, stronger and more devastating force, a human fighting for survival can overcome the laws of nature, an enhanced creature fighting for survival...is godlike.

    Main features of this Mutator are:
    • Re-skins for every Specimen
    • 3 Versions for most specimens at different stages of decay
    • Specimens are stronger, faster and hit harder
    • Some Specimens also recieve an additional factor, for example, a Clot when killed will explode Bloat Bile
    • Other features may be added as the project progresses
    I have no plans for a beta at this time, but who knows, it might be on the cards eventually.

    Now for the pic, an un-finalised version of the Rotting Clot:

    By all means share your thoughts, is it lame, should I quit now? Should I continue etc...

    looks nice, and I like the idea of exploading into bile once it has been killed, and I like how his foot is intersecting the terrain.
    how long have you been learning the programming part?

      Very nice mate. You've thought of all the main parts to it while adding the small parts that people may not care about but will keep it for fun. Well done.

        At least it's not an HD rotting Clot. I'd have nightmares for days.

        So far, so good.

              Looks pretty awesome. If I may suggest something, you should make multiple skins for each specimen for variety and give each one slightly different stats.

              So for example a more healthy looking clot would be more faster/stronger and the more "rotten" looking ones would be slower and possible exploded in bile like you said. But wether the rotten ones should do more or less damage per hit Im not sure, up to you I guess

              Would be even better if someone could do a little modelling, for example remove an arm from a specimen or a part of its face to make them look even more different from each other.

                Only problem I have with your comment is probably the "healthy" version of zeds. When you think about it, aren't the standard zeds the "healthy" versions? :P

                I must admit I kinda like the idea of having two versions with different stats but I think the rot version is great and can't wait to see the later zeds. The second version needs to be different and maybe unique. I can't exactly think of an example but can you see my point?

                  Yes, thats what I ment. Healthy clots would be the "normal" ones, but for this mutator you could make them slightly faster/stronger.

                  Who said anything about two :P. I was talking about more like 5 or upwards. Theres much you can do with the skins, add more wounds/scars/boils/bullet holes... etc. I could probably even help with the skinning if the idea took wind. I mean, if it feels like too much work.

                      I was wondering about this, I know they were experiments to begin with, but why would they have the ability to turn other people into clots, surely there has to be some form of infection there.

                      You've ruined my surprise

                      There are different variations of each specimen in the mutator, each like you say at a different stage of rotting, each with slightly different stats.

                      As for the modelling part, I can't say I can remove arms, but trust me when I say, you can tell the difference between the versions, for example I have a clot midway into decomposing, which has rotting flesh and such, the beginning of decay, I then have a badly decomposed clot that has severely rotting flesh revealing bone and skull, so you can get a picture of how they will look different.

                      As of yet I only have 3 variations of a single specimen, these don't include the healthy(standard) versions, this is The Rotting mutator afterall

                      But i'm glad people like the project, I will keep at it.

                            Why not? The human organism can get infected and I don't suppose that the Clots innate and adaptive immune system (if he even has that) is that much better then the one of a human.
                            I mean the clots imune system had no time to "learn" and adapt to the world + they don't have medicine or anything else. Rotting Clot might be a bad description, as a rotting organism is dead.

                            Or a Virus, which is only "Specimen specific" implements its DNA into the Clot's DNA, or its RNA with the help of Reverse Transcriptase into the Clot's DNA. Instead of killing the Clot the Virus makes it stronger (positive mutation).

                            The idea of a Zombie Virus isn't that abstract in real life either. If you know how to mix the Nucleotids together. "Just" use a Virus as a Vektor and you could basically cure cancer or produce the worst disease.
                            The Adeno Virus for example is used to add Genes to the DNA, in order to cure someone. This Virus won't write his own RNA into the DNA but the one which "was given to him" (by scientists).


                            So why can't it be an infection
