Description: Call of Duty: World at War - Nazi Zombie Dead Sand Elite MapThe dead arise from their watery graves and these fallen soldiers march towards their objective and over run this bunker.

NOTE: Dead Sand Elite does not have nazi_zombie_ prefixed to it. It is, however, still a zombie mode mod.
Fixes to the original Nazi Zombie Dead Sand mod:
Chests display the proper buy messages.
Mounted weapon deployment doesn't crash the game.
Mounting weapons is easier.
Enemy AI can't fall off ships and end up in the water.
Enemy AI is no longer allowed to go prone.
The "?" (gambler) doesn't post messages to all players, only the player using it (except for the Jackpot).
The "?" (gambler) displays the proper price and the cost caps out so that it doesn't get too crazy.
Some buyable weapons were displaying one price, but costing a different price, they are all fixed.
The Commisars don't drop PPSH's anymore, sorry.
The Nebelwerfer attack doesn't necessarily end a level anymore.
Players can no longer get 'stuck' rebuilding the barrel barrier.
Changes to the original Nazi Zombie Dead Sand mod:
Perks have been implemented, they drop from zombies just like powerups but look different than powerups. Two additional perks have been implemented, 'Endless Grenades' & 'Three Primaries'.
With Endless Grenades your grenade inventory will be replenished by 1 grenade every few seconds. With Sleight of Hand, the replenishment is faster.
Three Primaries gives you three primary weapon slots.
The Juggernaut perk has been altered to double your toughness (200% health) instead of the standard 160%.
For a solo player, the Quick Revive perk is useless, so Quick Revive provides additional speed to rebuilding barriers (solo only).
The "?" (gambler) can now spawn perks as well as everything it used to.
An additional power up, 'Speed Boost' has been added, giving all players an increased run speed for a duration of time. The powerup icons have been altered a bit to make room for the new powerup.
There is now a passive bonus for keeping the barriers up. When all barriers are fully built and the number of enemies exceeds a threshold, all players will get bonus points at an interval. This will be indicated by the flashing of a new barrier icon:
This bonus is equal to 10 * Round Number every x seconds where x is equal to the number of players. So at round 10, four players connected would get 100 points every 4 seconds, when the number of enemies exceeds a threshold. Keeping one enemy alive won't be enough, but using that time to rebuild all barriers could be valuable for the next round...
Timed powerups last 30 seconds + 2 second per level. For example, at level 10, timed powerups last for 50 seconds.
Enemy AI shooter spawning has been changed. It is no longer predictable where, when, or what will spawn. However, the spawn locations are the same.
There is a Boss Zombie (red flashing eyes) that can spawn, he is 6 times harder to kill and drops a "Super Powerup". He may also drop one or two perks depending on the round. He is a little smarter than regular zombies and doesn't like grenades thrown at him.
The Zombies are tired of coming out of the ships piecemeal all the time and getting cut to shreds, so they may now do a 'zerg' attack in an attempt to overwhelm the players.
The enemy eye texture is now blue instaed of the default (merely a costmetic note here).
Previously, several MG's could be bought from the chest that didn't have bipods. Those types have been eliminated, with the exception of the Scoped FG42.
The price of the buyable Projekt 335 has been reduced to 1500 (originally 3500). The ammo cost is still only 500.
The Bouncing Betties explode faster than before, due to the increased speed some of the zombies have. This is a blessing and a curse; don't be planting them or near them with zombies comming at you.
***The Map Geometery:
There is now a tunnel at the far end of the beach trenches that leads to a small bunker behind the sea wall. The wall can be rebuilt from inside the bunker. There is also a good strategic position for one or two players above.
The trench logs facing the beach have many useful mountable positions. Sometimes trickey to mount on, sometimes easy.
Player repawns are in randomized locations, players will not necessarily respawn next living players any longer. If you die, you might end up high or down low.
Cheating is no longer possible. The map will abort if run in a mode that enables cheats (e.g. +thereisacow or devmap). To run Dead Sand Elite solo, only use the 'map' command to start it. Attempts at altering variables like sf_use_ignoreammo will simply result in the mod aborting in the middle of playing.
Extra thanks to some fans who can be found on the graffitti wall in the game!
