    Just a brief note to say that if you had a custom model made for TRP - you will be able to use it on ZRP too. Will just need to request it and have proof of ownership / donation when the server launches.

    However most of the headgear items will not be available - probably limited to just the baseball cap and facewrap as we dont want people using the TechCom helmets etc.

    The clothing system itself will work similar to TRP, however there will be much more variety of civilian clothing - Ive delved into my Tekka WIP library and cooked up around 40 male combinations.....havnt done females yet but there will likely be just as many. No silly outfits this time, its almost completely modern-day stuff that could relate to any setting (so will probably be useful in the case we decide to do other short-term roleplay settings / Random Roleplay events).

    Not sure how armour is going to work yet......currently im thinking that I might be able to just make police vests / military vests that can be overlayed over any clothing (by using the code we had for exos originally) but this may be problematic visually for certain models where the clothing is a bit too bulky and will clip with the vest. Also female models might look a bit awkward wearing them unless.....I guess I could make fem versions of each vest to ensure a decent fit.

    I'd actually try and make armor rather scarce to be honest. Make more unique clothing items instead. Different kinds of shirts, coats, hell maybe even a hazmat suit for narrative purposes.

    Police vest / Riot gear / Military armor will probably be your three armor items and should be distributed very little imo. It's not like HL2 or TRP where everyone's going to have guns and armor.

    The distribution of armour and items isnt really up to me - the admin team will have their own agenda for the availability of these things.

    Im actually genuinely looking forward to a gamemode which is much more focused towards basic weapons and mellee

    I'm curious to see what kinds of things you'll come up with regarding those melee weapons. Planks, bats, pans, improvised/makeshift clubs/stab-sticks.

    It also wouldn't be zombies with a few chainsaws about. That shit's gonna be the AR2 of the setting I feel lmao.

    Can you make it so outfits have some sort of backpacks bodygroup where you can wear one? It’ll be pretty nice eye-candy especially when the world goes to hell.

    This is actually already the case with TRP so it shouldn't be hard to port over in some fashion.

    A variety of backpacks would be pretty neato.

    Yeh I can do that. But I dont really want it to turn into a situation where every single person wears a backpack item just because they want the script advantage.

    They could simply be aesthetic, like beanies in HL2RP.

    yeh we'll more than likely have any item that increases storage just be an invisible thing that sits in the inventory like in hl2 with cca equipment etc

    to be fair, most people across the globe own some form of backpack they have at home - just think of college students in particular. it'd also make sense in the zombie apocalypse, since you never know when you gotta leave a place (and therefore lose everything you were keeping there because you didnt have it in a bag)

    Your wish has indeed been granted.

    Id rather just assume that people have backpacks than see every single player wearing the same backpack model as standard just to get the script benefits.

    considering it's a narratively focused setting and the only thing they could hope to possibly stockpile is an assortment of melee weapons and misc. narrative items I wouldn't care if people got script benefits from it.

    if you're really worried just make different backpacks have different carry weight increases

    that, tbh. how likely or unlikely is it that we'll get a few different styles of backpack? there's the one amianne rigged for hl2 all the way back then, there was that military one used on hl2, there's the old "rebel vest with bag" bag, there's the slung duffle bag used on some models... would it be possible to use those?
