*The map is now called KF-ShaunOfTheDead (previously KF-DogsCantLookUp) to avoid any confusion*

The THIRD release of the Shaun of the Dead beta is now here. I hope the non stop work through the past few weeks (when I was supposed to revise for my exams) has been worth it. Well it's up to you to judge.

Please report any bugs to my website www.bunnyhead.tk so this thread is not clogged up with replies. Feel free to comment here on the map and discuss new ideas.

My Steam name is chewmyheadoff, feel free to add me.

.....Where is the queen when you get inside? D=

If you need to know how, I can tell j00. =D

Plus, no offence, but your textures for the custom meshes, look a little....hmm. Plastic wrappy? o_O They just look...off.

Just tried this. Very cool. Some crits/suggestions:

Make the sky less bloomy. It hurts my eyes.
Maybe have an upstairs part in the Winchester, or a cellar (like in the film)
Have the Winchester gun above the bar (like in the film)
Map music

Awesome release for a first beta though. Look forward to your next build ;)

The reason why the custom textures looked a bit off is because of the crap lighting from the unreal engine, that is given to my custom meshes which i made on a different modeling program. I'll find a way to fix it soon.

Im already working on the cellar and the fuse room; just didnt want to release everything in the first build.

The sky iv been trying to darken, maybe put a fog ring around it like west london.

Other possible improvements:

- More alley ways
- Ambient sounds


Plus dont worry i dont take offence, throw anything at me, i just want to make this map good. I was wandering, is the file size a bit small? I swear i downloaded some maps which were 30mb+.

The cellar is nearly done but where should the entrances be? At the moment there are just stairs from the little room at the back of the pub. It would be difficult to make a trap door behind the bar as zombies will have a hard time getting back up. I might include the lift but maybe only for a trader room, that would be proper jokes.

Please post comments on what needs improving, more zombie spawn zones or something? I don't know what people want as im sick and tired of play testing this map over and over and i dont know whats fun anymore.

I was waiting for this one so thought I'd give it a test.

1) Please add combat/calm wave music for next release, really adds to the atmosphere
2) Regarding the actual Winchester - other than the Cellar already discussed, you could add the corridor with John's office, maybe a bathroom and the back door to the street.
3) You must have had a reason for not putting in weldable doors for the pub entrances?
4) +1 to putting the gun above the bar. There is a Winchester static mesh in there somewhere
2) Being based on the film, it would have been nice to have more incentive to fight in the actual pub. At the moment it seems like the dumbest place to fight, because the streets are reallly wide and there is that huge park opposite the pub. I think you aimed to balance the map for > 6 players? Noone else joined my server while I was playing, but on my own I had no problems kiting any number of zeds in those streets.
Ideas for making it more interesting to play with up to 6 players:
-narrow the streets or block them off significantly with wrecked vehicles
-put zombie spawn points in underground and have them jump up out of sewer holes and from behind wrecked cars in middle of the street, to surprise players getting comfy standing in the open with a crossbow
- block off the majority of that huge park opposite the Winchester

I really liked the passages through the backyards, the recreation of the pub and the general attention to detail. I didn't find any glitches/abuses.

1) Yea I forgot to put music in, it will be there next time.

2) There will be a backdoor... corridor and john's office? I'll have to watch the film again.

3) I swear the pub entrances are weldable, they were the last time I played.

4) Yea that's easily done, I kinda rushed the interior to get the first beta released.

Back to 2) Yea I realised that was a major problem, zombies came so slowly and they were so predictable. I forgot to set the spawn time, and I'll add more spawn points in the middle of the streets.

- Hmm blocking off the park? Maybe. No one goes there anyway.

Why do I can't start the first wave, is it the map too big for me to find the mobs? or there is a bug, I think music is not a bad idea but the volume need to be proper for the game (should been small volume, just like Background music)
