Stranded - Open World Zombie Survival Sandbox [SP] [Released]

Recommended Posts



An event occurred. It's origin unknown. Some say it's just nature restoring the balance. Some say it's a virus from outer space. Some say it's Judgement. Nobody truly knows. What we do know is that one day the dead started to rise. Everyone who dies rises again to attack the living and create more walking corpses. Countries that had the infrastructure managed to withstand the event whereas countries torn by civil war, famine and scarcity were not so lucky. Altis was not so lucky. You are a drifter. A faceless roaming survivor of the aftermath earning a meagre living scavenging and selling loot. You are nothing. A nobody and when you die you become another nobody. Over and over. 


Explore and pillage the island nation of Altis where the further you go the harder it gets. Battle across high risk/high reward loot zones where the better the gear the more dangerous the foe but don't stay out too long. You don't want to be outside a safe zone when night falls. Take on odd jobs. Kill zombies and bandits for money. Build up your cash to buy better gear to take on harder loot zones but beware, If you die you lose it all.

Mission Summary



- Random Events
- Safe Zones
- Vendors
- Loot Zones
- Tiered Loot system
- Tiered enemies
- Somewhat balanced progression
- Repeatable missions
- Mag repacking
- Ambient, non intrusive, music
- Custom dynamic spawn system that changes depending on day/night cycle.

The main feature of this scenario is what I hope to be re-playable fun that you can either enjoy in short spurts or play over a couple hours.


Whilst this project is functionally completed there is more I would have liked to do with it however due to time constraints / inexperience I've had to cut features out. Over time I would like to add things like a sort of bounty system / reputation system plus expand and add more variety to what's in this scenario.

I can't make any promises, beyond bug fixing support, that I'll continue to add to this project though.


- Apex
- Contact
- All free DLC
- Ravage

I've been experimenting with making different versions of this scenario with different dlc's and mods in mind like Western Sahara and RHS mods.

Update: 7 Apr @ 9:42pm

Update: 11 Apr @ 11:26pm

_______ FIxes / Optimisations _______

- Optimised Cleanup script. Reduced stutter (I think) when script runs and script will only delete bodies after certain distance from player. Cleanup time extended to 20 mins per script loop.

- Removed a seperate cleanup loop for mines. Now it's all in one script.

- Added some missing mags to the trader list

- Increased vehicle rearm price

- Lowered prices for attachments

- Increased money loss when dying

Update: 15 Apr @ 11:20pm

_______ FIxes _______

- Rewrote the add trader script and enabled the trader script to restart upon mission load after saving and exiting. This should fix the shop after resuming a saved game. Please let me know how this goes. This has changed how traders work slightly. You'll now need to look at the laptop in front of the trader to open the shop menu.

Update: 20 Apr @ 1:00am

_______ Additions _______

- Added an animal spawn script.

- Made it easier to see where you need to go to refuel / re arm and repair your car. You can only do this with cars you've bought from the mechanic. To refuel or repair cars found in the world you'll need to buy the fuel and repair box from the mechanic (or loot them).

Update: 23 Apr @ 9:08pm
_______ FIxes _______

- Fixed Bar Mechanic Tow script not working | Overlooked a missing bracket. Doh!

Update, 03/03/2024.


I took a bit of a long hiatus however I intend to release this ........ soon 


The base features have been completed. I've cut some things out because I didn't have the time/experience to implement them such as the conversations and lore elements.


Now I just need to polish this up a bit and do a full test and subsequent bug fixing exercise then this will be ready for release

I'm currently play testing and ironing things out.

Updated the scenario to remove the Western Sahara dlc requirement. This was completely unintentional and I left the dlc activated as I was planning on adding in the weapons and clothing and making a separate version at some point.
