“Many of you have heard of the zombie templates. The plan with these is to produce a zombie ‘doll’ which we can have an artist dress up with various survivor clothing and bake to a single texture on an optimized mesh. This would increase the amount of visual variety without impacting performance if/when players see large amounts of zombies at once in the scene. This approach also creates an opportunity to introduce some degree of variety to the zombie bodies, themselves.
Example zombie ‘template’ – he wants your brains in his belly.” C. Torchia
