October is Zombie Month…

Welcome to Zombie Month Here at theCrazySteve.com Expect Lots of Zombie Goodness. I start you off with this pretty nifty Zombie Simulator i found on the net. It simulates what a zombie outbreak would be like if it ever really happened.

Zombie Infection Simulation v2.3

Created by Kevan Davis, August 2003


To view the zombie infection simulation, you’ll need
to install Java.

Rules and instructions after the break:


Simulation Rules

Zombies are grey, move very slowly and change direction randomly and frequently unless they can see something moving in front of them, in which case they start walking towards it. After a while they get bored and wander randomly again.

If a zombie finds a survivor standing directly in front of it, it bites and infects them; the survivor immediately joins the ranks of the undead.

Survivors are pink and run five times as fast as zombies, occasionally changing direction at random. If they see a zombie directly in front of them, they turn around and panic.

Panicked survivors are bright pink and run twice as fast as other survivors. If a survivor sees another panicked survivor, it starts panicking as well. A panicked survivor who has seen nothing to panic about for a while will calm down again.
Controls

* Press g to toggle between grey and green zombies.
* Press s to alter the simulation speed.
* Press space to uninfect all but one zombie.
* Press z or reload the page to reset to a new city.
* Press + and – to adjust population (this also resets the city).
* Press p to toggle complete panic (as in v1).

(You’ll need to click on the Java window before it’ll accept keypresses.)
