Lockpicking



This mod gives the player two new ways to open locked doors.

The burglar profession has been added :)

As of version 0.7.0 you can now break open windows when you have a crowbar in your inventory. But be careful, there is a chance that the window might break!

Lockpicking
Lockpicking is the silent method to open a locked door. To use this the player must have equipped a screwdriver as his primary and a bobby pin as his secondary item. Now when you click on a locked door the new menu entry "Pick Lock" will appear. If you click it, the player will move towards the door and start picking the lock. Be careful though, lockpicking is not an easy thing to do and the chance to fail is fairly high. If you fail picking the lock, it is broken and can't be picked again.

Breaking the lock
The easier and faster way to open a locked door is to simply break the lock with the help of a crowbar. The player must have equipped the crowbar as his primary item. Now when you click on a locked door the new menu entry "Break Lock" will appear. If you click it, the player will move towards the door and start breaking the lock. Be careful though, there is a chance that the crowbar might slip and knock against the door, causing a loud noise which may attract zombies. If the lock-breaking succeeds the door will be open albeit it will also make quite some noise (although not as loud as failing to break the lock). It is also noteable, that breaking a door will damage the crowbar.

As you can see both methods have their pros and cons and it is your decision which one you want to use.

I think XP would be a welcome addition to this mod. The first few pick attempts should be pretty much guaranteed to fail (perhaps even having a chance of breaking the screwdriver in the process) and work on from there slowly but surely gaining the ability to pick.


I can't think of a signature.. I'm not very creative.
Go check out my controller thread if you need help with that.

That's definitely on my to do list :)

I suggest playing in Sandbox mode with loot set to abundant :) It can be hard to get into PZ, but there will be tutorials etc. in the near future.

 

In the next version of this mod the screwdriver spawning rates will be a little bit higher ;)

Updated to Version 0.5.0
 
v0.5.0
  • Implemented Thuztor's awesome icon for the Bobby Pin
  • Added condition drainage to the screwdriver
  • Condition of the crowbar goes down lower now
        => It happens at random atm so it shouldn't be too fast anymore
  • Increased chance for successfully breaking a lock
  • Breaking the lock is much faster than lockpicking it now
        => Overhauled completion times of both lockpicking and lockbreaking
  • More lock difficulties (Very easy, Easy, Medium, Hard, Very hard)
  • Tweaked distribution of bobby pins
        => they are most common in bathrooms now
  • Tweaked distribution of screwdrivers
  • Lockbreaking now exhausts the player
It's only a small update ... I know - sorry :(

Awesome, maybe NOW is my chance to find a screwdriver.... gonna try it today!

 

My little suggestion: build in a mini game like in skyrim for example!

Please no mini games. ;)
It should depend on the characters skill (later). Or? :)

They should spawn more frequently especially in crates now :)

No worries. It just wouldn't fit into Project Zomboid.

I loved the Lockpicking minigames in "Thief" :)

Love your mods RoboMat. But do I have to manually remove the files from the old version before I install the newer ones?

Thanks a lot.

 

Well it should be enough to delete the respective folder in /media/lua/Mods/ ... all the other files should be overwritten. In the future I will probably post a note wether old files need to be removed or can be overwritten :)

You probably put the icon.png into the wrong folder. It should be placed into the folder above the "/media" folder ;)
