Killing Floor General Discussion

Discussion in Setup an Event started by Vadleon, Dec 9, 2011

    Welcome to Mk.II of the Killing Floor Discussion and Event Planning Thread!

    Alright, so it's been a while and many of us still like shooting zeds with buddies. Let's get the ball rolling again. This time around though, I'd like it to be kept to either a monthly or bimonthly schedule so the fun doesn't get worn down as people feel obligated or rehearsed to play. We should have fun and try more maps, successfully or differently, and experiment with more custom maps.

    Since the first thread had a good layout, time for copy pasta...
    Event Times, IP's, and Map Downloads

    Time - A weekend soon?

    For starters
    I'll start with a game description for those unfamiliar. Skip ahead if you want to plan a time and discuss things.

    Killing Floor is a zombie game that features holding out against waves of enemies and using different 'perks' for weapon sets (not the same as classes).
    • The enemies come in many distinct varieties and each will prove a challenge on different maps and difficulties.
    • The perks that I mentioned are different from classes in that you can use any weapon at any time, provided you have the space. Additionally, you can level up any other perk while using a particular one (ex. using commando and level up support).
    • Between waves of enemies, you are allowed a short period to find a trader and purchase new guns and more ammo.
    • Due to the nature of the gameplay and the location of traders, team cooperation and advance planning is a necessity to survive a whole map. You will need to plan who carries what and where each of you aim if you are to successfully defend from the 'specimens' (zombies).
    • The maximum team size on an unmodded server is 6 players. Organize your team and work together. However, mind the potential advantages and disadvantages of a larger team. (More details later as needed.)
    The game is normally $20 on Steam (link here), though I strongly suggest looking out for a sale price. Traditionally, I think it's worth it if you enjoy shooting games, leveling up, and working as a team. Don't feel obligated to buy it, as I too am a deal seeker and I know money can be tight.

    The meat of this thread
    If you have the game and want to play, say if a time works for you or suggest your own. Also, post your levels so we can guage what kind of server and difficulty we should find/ set up. No point in playing it on HoE if all we'll be doing is dying and not having any fun. :razz: Also, posting your preferred difficulty that gives you sufficient challenge will help us choose something that works for everyone so we can also try leveling our lower perks.

    I generally suggest we try meeting up weekend on weekends, as that's when people have the most open time. Days include Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Post times that work for you and we can all figure something out. Current and future events will be at the bottom of this post, in addition to IP's or extra custom map downloads.

    Just a few things to mention in advance:
    • Don't be a jackass. We're all here to have fun with each other. While there is no official pF server for this (and probably won't be), we'll either find an empty server to play on or I can throw up my own, and I expect everyone to be respectful of other players. If you think a plan will fail, don't scream at people; present your own and explain why.
    • Levels don't matter for playing together. You can be lv.6 in all perks or lv.0 in all of them. Just bear in mind that higher levels will likely kill more and not find as much interest in normal difficulties. Also, as a note to higher levels, don't hog the kills. Other people need experience and money, too.
    • Since the max team size is 6 on a standard server, if there are too many of us willing to play we'll need to break up into groups and play. I'm open to the idea of a non-standard slot server, but those will not allow perk leveling, so I would avoid those.
    • I strongly suggest downloading and installing Mumble and joining our server for it (details here). This will make voice communication a lot more clear than the in-game mic.
    • CHECK YOUR KEYS. Don't start playing the game without giving all your controls a gander. Reset a few if you must (such as voice chat and for throwing weapons). Arrange them so they work and you don't end up asking how to do something while being eaten by 3 gorefasts.
    • If you want to learn more about the game and have more knowledge to use in playing, consult the wiki here. Trust me, there's good information in there.

    I'll kick this off by suggesting a date range, as I know people are just now finishing semester finals. Any day from this weekend through next week work well for people?
    As a note - there is a free weekend currently running through the 12th! Anyone who doesn't have the game and has considered buying it should definitely give it a try. Should you like it, it's also $5 right now for the base game. I suggest getting the bundle at $8, as the price is more efficient than getting the DLC separately.

    About myself:
    All perks are lv.6 except Berserker at 5.
    I'm down for any difficulty, but I would like to try filling out more of my suicidal and HoE achievements.

  9. Jan 12, 2011
    Quite alright buddy. I don't expect everyone to be ready, since many of us are still doing finals. I'm just putting the KF thing out there to let people know that we can play again. :smile:
  10. Jan 12, 2011

    What do you guys think of playing this Friday (23rd) or Saturday (24th) at anytime? I know it's going to be before Christmas, but I'd like to see who's up for a game.
  11. Apr 2, 2011
    Hey vad... most people have like a Christmas eve dinner... or something like that... so the 24th probably would not be a very good time to have a game (in the evening)
  12. Jan 12, 2011
    Good point. Alright I'll edit my post, but how about anytime on those days? Suggest a time and let's see.
  13. Nov 6, 2011

  14. Feb 21, 2007

  15. Aug 2, 2010
    So how's up for a PF community KF night soon? Like tonight.
  16. Oct 29, 2010
    Tonight is poker night dork!
  17. Aug 2, 2010
    Stab you in the ass with a poker card.
  18. Jan 12, 2011
    Thanks rxn for the tasteful bump!

    Sure, I can play for a bit tonight, though weekends are generally better. Would you like to throw up a server on your beast computer or shall I? :razz:

    Also, I will try setting a date sometime soon for more people to play together, but haven't gotten around to it since Dec. due to things popping up.

    Edit: What time and should we meet on Mumble?
  19. Aug 2, 2010
    I'll most likely borrow my friend's private server. Just getting a feel for KF to set a date and time as of now.
