Heya guys, I'm going to throw together a quick list of things that are commonly suggested and whether they've been mentioned by devs as tentative or no's. I'm going to be basing this off of a few threads in the old forum and the top of my head. If I miss any please mention it in the thread and I'll add it to the list.

 

Key

[n] - This is a confirmed 'No' from the development team. Please don't waste your time or ours reposting unless there's something relevant and new about it

[y] - This is confirmed 'Yes' from the development team. This is something the definitely want to see in the game, but this does not constitute a guarantee. Please don't post about it unless you have something new or relevant to add.

[m] - This is a 'maybe' from the dev team. It's something they've mentioned that they were interested in but we still don't know if it's a confirmed feature. Please don't post about it unless you have something new or relevant to add.

Everything else - everything not marked would be something overwhelmingly decided by the community or that's self-evident. If you feel it needs discussion bring it up here or in a thread if there's not already one out there.

 

The Big No's!

These are a list of things that are either vehemently opposed by the majority of the community, confirmed "no's" by the dev team, or impossible within the game as it is. I'm going to try to make this completely unbiased, but if you disagree with anything posted feel free to mention it. The most important ones are highlighted in red. If you take nothing else from this thread, please pay attention to these.

 

 

         Aerosol Can + Lighter = Flamethrower

[n]    Beginning the game before the infection

[n]    Children or babies

[n]    An ending or any game over other than death

[n]    First Person or other viewpoint changes including camera rotation

[n]    Unlimited/large amounts of ammo and weapons

[n]    Voiceover

[n]    Zombie Beasts or Infected Animals

[n]    Zombie Camo, or Using Zombie Guts as a Disguise

 

Tentative Yes's

These things are things that either the devs have expressed interest in adding. Please note that this list does not mean these will be in the game at release, nor does it mean the devs will ever add them. It's solely a list of features they're interested in adding. These things do not need further threads, so please refrain.

I suggest some sort of list of commonly suggested suggestions, something that'd make it easier to determine if something is commonly suggested. Perhaps it could even be in list form, but I don't know.

I can't think of a signature.. I'm not very creative.

Hey mod developers!

 

Ya hit the nail on the head there... doesn't fit with their design goals or how they feel the game should be, and would require a fair bit of time that could go into more needed features. Which is why it's fantastic that we have modders! You should look into learning to mod the game yourself since you have so many ideas, RoboMat is working on a tutorial for modding in the Mods section.

[n] Sex
If you want a realistic game, smoking a joint would be a super-cigarette and relieve so much more stress, and Why no sex? There are at least going to be motherfucking rapists who will rape you, if you want the game all sad and shit.

That's not the kind of atmosphere the game devs are going for?

You've been warned for this post. I've already told you to stop being rude about/to the developers. Last warning.

It's a rather important difference. :|

The only thing I wonder about is no sex. I was thinking more of a "You're in a very close relationship with another NPC, you're both attracted to each other, [insert scene where you two talk in a bedroom here], fade to black, wake up next morning happy and un-stressed.

 

I guess it doesn't fit the atmosphere?

Are rain barrels supposed to be implemented at some point? I thought someone said something about that but I can't for the life of me remember where.

Aside from the brief use of the Random Forest of Lost Characters, it's a fervent "no." They want a hand-made map, perhaps with some small randomizations to the state of buildings and the like (similar to the distribution of items). Something that's able to be shared by the community as a whole.

Yay! Main reason I'm playing in sandbox right now is so I can extend the time it takes for waterlines to be turned off. Without some way to catch rain or gather other sources of water I'm sorta stuck trying to leave the town and find one of the hard-to-get-to wells or risk a slow drawn out death of thirst.

It's sort of like child killing, in the sense that it's just awkward.

Just do a search on the old forum for "rape," and I think you'll get a rather fine understanding of why they don't want to touch this.

On the plus, drug use is fine!
