    ORGM Rechambered

    Yep, and updates to ORGM to make it work. I decided since next time around I don't have to worry about breaking things like save compatibility, it was time to make some drastic changes to the mod. But given the effort involved in some of these changes, it may delay the release...so people might (good chance) will have to play anim build without ORGM for a while, least while its still in IWBUMS. There's tons of crazy stuff in the works for v4 of the mod that will be worth the wait though. Multiple capacity magazines, Dozens of variants of each gun, different models offered by the manufacturer..with different barrel lengths, calibers and features (theres 20 colt anaconda's on the list alone!), including some extremely rare collectibles. A new system is in place for generating many variants of a gun or magazine with minimal effort (other then research involved), and a powerful new spawn system to allow all these new variant without flooding and diluting the loot tables. Just going to take a bit of time to hammer it all out.

    ORGM Rechambered

    Sweet! Great work! Looks amazing <3 Can't wait to play this mod with the Animation update but that will probably be months away lol.
  5. I run into that too. Great way to get XP if the Admin don't catch ya I'm also seeing the vanishing zombies while fighting. I just made a post on it. While fighting, ALL of them around you will vanish but they're still there. You just dont see them. If you don't run away until they pop back in, you will be hurt badly. Your swings are at nothing but air but they can still react as soon as they pop back in and will always have the initiative on the attack. No matter if you're in mid swing and aiming right at them. This happens OFTEN and for everyone on the server I play on.

    Picking Up Shelves

    I find that if I try to pick up a specific type of shelf and I fair where only one of the 2 pieces drop, I will from then on never be able to pick up that same type of shelf (Book case - magazine rack etc), ever. I've had this happen with 2 different book cases that were two tiles wide. I was able to fix one because I had an extra set that I had to place before it let me pick up any more. If it breaks where only one piece survives, once again, I will no longer be able to pick up that same type of object. When attempting to pick it up, it highlights the object red as though I'm missing a tool, which I am not. It will also, while red, allow me to pick up the floor tile below it. Very weird bug.
  7. Something very similar is happening to everyone on a multiplayer server. I've even tested this out on another random server to make sure it's not just something on the server I play on. While fighting zombies, they will often just pop out of existence. You can move around like normal but if you stay in one place, you will be attacked as though they were always there. The don't actually pop out but become invisible for a short time (5 seconds) and then reappear as though they were always there, moving towards you or attacking if you're standing still. This happens VERY often. One minute you can be swinging at a zombie then nothing there. If you keep swinging, they just pop back in and land a hit on you because you're swinging at air. Not sure how they get the bite on you then. The only way to get out of this is to literally run away until they reappear.

    Autosave routine needs to be reworked

    That wasn't generally about car disappearing (yet it's a part of an issue) but generally wrong idea of how saving works now.

    Autosave routine needs to be reworked

    They stated in a recent Thursdoid that one of the coders is currently investigating the car save bug and is making some progress (if I understood that correctly).
  10. When player drives a car for the loot, spends some time there then returns to the base and the game crashes - car disappears. I've experienced an issue muliple times already: I gets a car, goes around the city and collects pretty valuable stuff. Then I returns to the base and starts to sort it out. While I do it game falls to this issue crashes. As a result - car disappears and everything rolls back to the state like I've just came back. BUT player's inventory remains the state as it was right before the crash. As a more indepth result: everything what was looted on adjacent cells is disappeared (it was looted), but not on the base (player inventory is in "new" state). I am not sure how the autosave routine really works now, but judging on what I see - cell saved when the player leaves it and goes to the next cell. If I correct, the "visited" cell needs to be saved also. That'll prevent the car from disappearing. Possible solution: when player's inventory is saved, current cell state also to be saved. But not directly. Save it as a "player.temp" and "cell.temp" files for example. And if the save worked correctly (no failure) just rename to correct names then. That'll prevent a save from curruption in a manner "one file is an hour old and another was just saved". In a more simple words: that'll prevent synchronization issue among the savefiles.

    Good places to camp?

    I have used your spot before Brex, easy access to the centre of West Point and its pretty low Z count. My favorite location is; https://map.projectzomboid.com/?#0.6614321693763002,0.21446489532683813,190.05228697006655 I build a cabin on the little peninsular SW of the building. Loot the log burner from the cabin in the woods on the other side of the lake as I always seem to have too many accidents with camp fires. You have a lake to fish. I like to fish and I generally set the food spawn rate to low, but I feel the big river funnels Z's along its banks. Level up slowly and systematically loot West Point by car.

    What does leveling First Aid affect?

    The first aid skill is not as useful since there is no enemy NPC or wild life threat to cause injury to player at the moment since zombies are the only enemy threat. Currently the way I level up my first aid skill is to injury myself to increase the skill by climbing through a window with broken glass in the frames just make sure to have some bandages a suture needle or needle and thread in case you get a wound injury.

    What does leveling First Aid affect?

    Do you know if there's any truth to whether having a higher level of it reduces the chance of zombie infection? ...Like, if I had level 10 first aid, would my chance of being zombified from a zombie scratch be reduced to 15% rather than 25%?

    What does leveling First Aid affect?

    As far as I know, healing times, infection, and also how much information you get about each injury (severity, healing). I couldn't tell you the exact differences between the levels, but it's good to have somebody with the skill in MP. It's pretty difficult to gain XP otherwise.

    More details

    I don't think there is a real to change the base map, since they are mostly clean for a reason. There are already event houses that rely on RNG and are supposed to represent some kind of situation happening, like an overrun home base, a suicide, or homes that have already been fully looted with one window smashed in. I wouldn't mind expanding on that, maybe increase the odds for starting later into the apocalypse with the erosion mechanic. There is actually more than you would think, what with shelves being populated by books and even themed loot lists based on the profession. Apart from that, the chances of encountering special homes that have the remnants of the former residents (suicides, dead bodies, obvious loot) there is also cooked food still on the stove. This is something likely to improve naturally with the inclusion of NPCs.

    Low FPS

    There can be a lot of things that can lower the FPS, as said in the Low FPS FAQ. Check if you have any mods turned on that would lower the performance. Also, check the options at the bottom of the Options menu like the Skybox. Try turning the Skybox off for example and wind effects... turn off Post Process as well. Another thing that fixed some users problems is going to your Steam Library > Rightclick ProjectZomboid > Properties > Local Files > Browse Local Files In that folder there is a ProjectZomboid32.bat file, doubleclick it to start the game through that file and see if there are any improvements. Lastly, you can go to "C:\Users\YourUserName\Zomboid" on your computer and upload the "logs.zip" file here, it should contain useful information about your game, so we could take a look if there are any problems with it.
  18. ...and how significant are the differences between levels 0, 5, and 10? Also, I'd read that it can have an effect on infection chance (something like each level of first aid reduces the chance of infection from a scratch by 1% (additive?))... is that true?

    Game Freezing every few seconds

    Drivers as mentioned. Always try to go back to the original drivers for you MB to start with. Updated drivers do not mean they are going to work with your system. Most of the time if your system is running fine stick with it. Or update one driver at a time and then give it a few days so you can see how it reacts with your system. If you update multiple drivers you are not sure which one is causing an issue. Background program could be at fault. Wireless devices as well. Move some dongles around. IE ones in the back to the front. Check power settings. Is your HDD running in IDE mode instead of AHCI? If you change from IDE to AHCI then make sure your OS is running in AHCI. Sometimes you need to tell it. Check your bios. There is a power saving setting on mine that wants to force idle the computer. Also which OS did you dl from here. Might be some information in the forum thread about the same issue.

  22. I believe the easiest possible way for you will be : https://www.hwinfo.com/ Run it, then choose "Video Adapter" in a main menu.

    Replace broken glass on windows?

    Nope. Heat spreads around a heat source in a certain radius. If straight path to head source is obstructed - there will be no heat from the heat source on the tile you standing (e.g., low iron bar fence around a campfire will make a perfect heat insulation).

    Game Freezing every few seconds

    I've the same problem, and with these two options off the game works better, but it still need something: the freezing are shorter and less frequent, but still annoying

    Low FPS

    It's been 6 months since my game started to get unplayable due to low fps. I've tried anything, lowered graphics, updating drivers: nothing changed. I've also tried the "low fps" FAQ. So, my notebook is an Acer Aspire 5741G, intel core i5 430m 2,26 ghz, with nvidia geforce gt 320 M, 4 gb ram..... please help!
