Some scenarios/challenges ought to be able to completely alter game settings or rather come with pre-defined game/map settings for faster starts, and an experience that lasts longer than the initial start. For example, “Downpour” challenge would have weather permanently set to only rainy type weather.
-The Mist - Perma Foggy weather, low zed count, but stronger zeds.
-Pitch Black - Always Night
-Raiderlands - high npc count, but mostly raider types.
-DinoCrisis - all zeds are replaced with X (this case being dinos)
The basic idea is to be able choose a set of pre-defined rules to shake your game up that don’t require going through settings or MOD list. Just choose special scenario/challenge, create character, and go!
Would we classify them as ‘Map Scenarios’? Where as scenarios/challenges affect the start, this would affect the map itself. Pre-set Map settings?
