I had an idea for a mod that would cure captured Zed’s into NPC’s that you can have join your group or preform menial tasks. I had a quick look around on the webs and couldn’t see anything pertaining to a mod like this, so, I figured I’d ask in the most knowledgeable place on the game, if anyone has heard of anything similar or has reasons why this idea couldn’t work please let me know.
So here’s how it works, you capture a Zed using ‘Snare Control Pole’ and ‘Dog Training Gloves’ and put them into a ‘Cell’ (Built into your base) or ‘Cage’ (Built into your vehicle for transport) for storage until your ready to inject the cure. You can find 2 tiers of the cure in vials, v.1 and v.2(WIP names lol) located at labs. These can be combined to various results. Cure v.1 + v.1 = v.2, Cure v.2 + v.2 = Cure v.3 ( Cure v.3 cannot be found in the game world and the recipe must be learned. Either be finding a file or hacking a terminal in the lab) The 3 versions of the cure have different cure success rates, 40%, 50% and 60% cure rate. If you succeed in curing the Zed it will turn into a NPC with stats that are calculated using the Zed’s difficulty level and condition. The stronger and “healthier” the Zed the higher quality the NPC. If you fail there’s a chance the Zed will mutate into a Cage smashing “Hulk” or turn to mush.
All these ideas are obviously WIP and nothing is set in stone
Thanks for your Time and Input!
