So i was thinking that the bodies of the dead survivors could turn into (NPC) zombies and walk around, unless it got killed with a head shot or removed the head of the corpse?
Like, you have to make sure they are DEAD before looting the body and the surroundings

I think it could add more to the zombie theme, and be more 'realistic'

I like this idea, but realistically, they'd need to have been killed by zombies, or at the very least have been munched on by zombies after getting killed - and of course they can't turn into zombies if they got shot in the head like MrPhysicalSky said.

I like that idea. I think that they should take some time to turn, however, instead of getting up right away. That way, you could have a chance to burn bodies or take off their head before they rise back from the dead. Imagine you and a group of friends are together and some die. Now you have to take care of the bodies. You'd get a mental health hit for having to burn the bodies of your former companions.

Well, i think there's alot of ways to get 'infected' like some zombie movies they can die, but only turn if bitten by a zombie, but in the walking dead (i've read alot of them) they've been infected the whole time, so they turn no matter what, even killed without being bitten.

Yea I know that - I love TWD tv show and they turn no matter what... I guess it all depends on what the devs are basing the game on.. I still like the idea though! ;)

I think many people want it to be like in TWD, but it would be nice to hear what the devs thoughts are:)

Most zombie games don't let you get turned especially not mmo's but I think it would be cool.

As this is a survival game, it kind of defeats the aspect of survival as some people would just want to play as a zombie. Don't get me wrong player zombies would be nice but I don't agree with it. This is my opinion and I don't want you to get offended.

The Devs are going for more of a team player experience. I don't think player zombies will support team play that much. Honestly playing as a Zombie is cool, But only for small games. Like L4D2 and Contagion. Anything open world you would be doing a lot of walking.

What if once you died the character you were playing just turned into a npc zombie. That would make it harder for other people to
get your supplies off your body.
That is a really good idea. Similar to the survivor zombie in L4D2 that carries the items from when it was human.

i understoood what he meant by the title, and i like it. i myself don't know any games that if your character dies you become a zombie, and this system would make a bandits life harder. kill the guy with a shot to the torso and walk over to loot his body only to have him munch on you face while you where searching him.

I really like the idea, but don't you think there would be an issue with the whole mental health thing for shooting other players (before they've turned of course)?
shooting a player will lower your mental health, but when they are "dead" then it's fair game to kill them
