    I just wish it didn't take zombies so long to go down when they die to the hunting rifle. You have to just trust that it's a one-shot kill and keep aiming without real confirmation. It's especially annoying when it's your teammate with the rifle though and you really can't tell if the zombies are dead yet or not.

    That is why you shoot it with more bullets. Also, not sure, but using console commands, can you do a versus match with all controlled by human players?

    Just a single big building, like a multistory office complex or something.

    Pretty sure that's supposed to be in the game already.

    Bleak highway with mazes of ruined cars and plenty of open spaces for zombies to rush in and get you, maybe some craggy hills alongside to offer infected ambush points; a few buildings as well, for supplies; final rush for freedom occurs when the highway becomes a bridge over a river and you just dash while the horde comes at you.

    On that note, bridge out of the city would be a good one.

    A well lit area with plenty of infected-inaccessible high ground, no obstructions, and plenty of ammo and weapons.

    To be honest one of the ZP levels would be pretty cool.

    Or the map from Shotgun Sunrise (LC has been dicking around with this already, I know that for sure).

    I'd still go with some kind of scientific thing. Lots of stainless steel and linoleum.

    Cruise ship is a really good idea.

    The last saferoom would be the bridge, where you'd be able to seize control and drive it somewhere safe.

    Hmm cruise ship...

    Chapter one: Going from passenger accommodations towards the midship
    Chapter two: midships recreational areas: ballroom, workout area, pool, etc etc
    Chapter three: topside decks
    Chapter four: fighting you way to the bridge to call for help
    Chapter five: turns out the Navy is already on the scene, and just torpedoed the cruise ship, get out before it sinks! (how?) (possibly not doable, but it'd be awesome to deal with not only zombies, but the ship starting to list and other crazy stuff, probably stick to the topside deck)

    i have some issues with this game so far:

    1) it's hard to find time to drink
    2) see #1

    so, with that said, team zissou beer helmets must become standard issue..something like
    http://www.amazon.com/Beer-Guzzler-Helmet-Assorted-Colors/dp/B000QV9XDI/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=miscellaneous&qid=1226266565&sr=8-1

    does anyone have any suggestions for wraparound headphone/microphone combos? i may attempt to attach my current headphones to this helmet but if that doesn't work i'll need some wraparounds instead...

    ZOMG, I GOT IT. We must get Asiina to knit us red beanies with two pockets to hold beer koozies.

    Dude that is exactly the picture I was thinking about when I said that. Chernobyl itself would also be a great map (radiation would enhance to zombie experience as the setting sort of makes sense)
