  1. ... so you don't want to see what are my building skill Rathlord? Go on Booking and tipe "Aosta-Chambres D'Amis" that's just a little taste of what can be done using your brain... and then you can see how u can use cement, wood, steel in the proper manner. (since that for you is impossible to manage to use concrete or any other material for everybody that isn't "expert"!) Man what I'm saying is the simple truth: EVERYBOY can use cement, EVERYBODY can learn how to use it. Simply deal with that man, everybody can be an "expert". (sorry to take off your title!) Now do you want to keep talking about useless stuff, like the "mostly".. just kid talk there.. so sad to read from an "expert". The fact is the SAME is concrete that keep it together. And OF COURSE is spread between the stones. (it's so OBVIOUS that, I didn't think it was needed a mention, since that I'm talking to a "builder for living" right?). No need to be a genius to do that. Not even "expert". Why do you keep clutch at straws? I'm gonna post a video on Y-T where I make a concrete wall my-self, like a tutorial. So maybe when you see it you will stop argouing about nothing.. P.S. Do me a favor and do a research for the use of concrete (calcestruzzo, cemento, calce) in the history. Discover why it's always used in fortification. Find out why there are so many different techniques to use it. Find why everybody can learn how to use it, not even using modern techniques. FACTS MAN, NOT POINT OF VIEW. If you want a single story, you can literally sink 4 x 4 posts into the ground (3-4 feet deep) then build off that. That's a temporary structure, of course. It's better to embed them in concrete. it's even better to dig four-five feet down and have concrete footings. But, now we're starting to blend disciplines, aren't we? Seems like we are!
  2. Sorry! Yeep! my mistake to haven't read from who was the warn! "But maybe that's too much to expect from the Internet." don't make that sad face man.. I'm friendly here!
  3. It's mostly build with concrete my friend. It's the concrete that keeps the stones togheter. (must know that builder!) You need some evidence of what I'm saying? No problem at all send me Private Message and I'll give you the site were you can actually come for a vacation in some of my own builded houses here in Italy (not put it here cause I don't want to share my privacy with everyone). Come and see how we build in the proper manners. I'm in this business since I'm 18 and now I'm 25. Quite of experiece man. Thanks to my dad architectures we are quite good in business. And I'm quite sure that every human with a working brain can use concrete, and that explain why his use go soo back in history. I think that if you have to, you will learn pretty quikly how it works and how to use it. But again you don't think so? Fine, that's your opinion. Just don't say that's too difficult, 'cause simply: IT AIN'T in my opinion. "You can't build a doorframe out of cement, since you don't have the tools to cut open said cement." That's not how you do a doorframe man, you don't cut it, you just shape the container for the cement like doorframe! Sure you can build a wall with only nails and hammer but can be kick down easly if you don't make a really good proper base. And takes a lot of time to do that, and again quite of a know how. And for SURE it ain't enoght just an hammer and some nails. How you gonna keep the zombie or even the wind to don't make this fall to pieces? No man you need to dig (with an hammer???) deep in the ground and stick there some logs to be your base. Then you can try to buid your wall. AGAIN NOT THAT SIMPLE AND NOT THAT "EVERYBODY CAN DO IT IN SMALL TIME". So you see... I don't even know why we are still talking of something that has found his end with this: "All three of this operation are hard to perform. It's just that 2 are in-game, so they go simple and smooth, and 1 isn't in-game." About the weight: I must have understand wrong then!
  4. That's what I say, never say that they are the same: "Have you ever plastered a wall guys? Is not that simple and it requires more tools than just the buket. But in-game is faster than barricating. Have you ever build a wall, some stairs with wood? It will surelly requires many tools than just "hammer and nails", and also quite a manual skill to make it stand and resist properly. Is not that simple AT ALL. But in-game is easy like drinking a beer. So, why are you saing that is hard to do a concrete wall? (wicth it is, I'm not saing that isn't) It's pointless to put out that. All three of this operation are hard to perform. It's just that 2 are in-game, so they go simple and smooth, and 1 isn't in-game." In fact the only problem here is that Ratlord don't like the idea. Like he has just wrote. And what I'm saying is that if you can do a wall with wood in-game you should be able to do a concrete wall. Just like in real life. That's the end of it. But if Ratlord start saying "it's to hard, to heavy (witch is just no sense, try to carry a log or a bag of concrete then you tell me what's the heaviest!) and all, well I think I should tell him that's not right. No harsh fellings agaist him of course!
  5. Really a warning? For what?? Guys I don't know how to explain my self propely in english but to me it wasn't hars! I mean I even put smiles in it! Too sensitive for my taste.. any way you are the moderator, so you shall moderate. "Not Lovely" had make my laught so hard! Rathlord, if really you do houses for a living you are surelly not an european to have this kind of thinking on carpentry. I mean seems like you don't have any idea of how hard and full of skill you must be to buid a damn wall in wood that actually stand without any proper base. And you claim that is super hard to do a concrete wall witch basiclly need only a proper cointainer for the "colata" of concrete and a proper mix of water and concrete. It's so easy to use and that even the COLOSSEUM IS MADE IN CONCRETE like almost all the buildings in the Roman age. And there was no modern tools at that time. Just men using their brains and arms to build something that is still here in the modern age. Repeat: NO MODERN TOOLS that could be available everywhere nowdays that make it so much easier to use. That's why you don't seems to have any idea of how construction works, the real construction not the semi-prefabbricated houses that are in America. I'll love to be very more detailled with the process of making concrete but I can't make my self clear with english. And that's sucks. p.s. don't be so sensitive about this one! No harsh fellings!
  6. Man you don't know what are you talking about. Seriously. No idea at all. Anyway I have really no time or wish (since that I have to explain using english and it's hard for me) to explain you why are you so terribly wrong. Talking about weight is ridicuolus too; did you ever lift a... nevermind is useless to explain the reality to you guys! You really have no idea. But it's fine keep the drean on!! P.S. Guys go try to make a wall with wood then tell me how much time it takes and if it doesn't fall like a piece of paper! ... Ahhahahah! Moderator WarningNot lovely.
  7. Glad to hear that! Yeah, the problem here is : I have no clue how to make a cement wall... Hey, I'm a geek, not a construction worker So I need to make some research on that (or maybe the team have already their idea on it, haven't talked about it with them...) to find a realistic solution to make cement wall... Ahahah! Just like I have no idea how to program a game!
  8. Have you ever plastered a wall guys? Is not that simple and it requires more tools than just the buket. But in-game is faster than barricating. Have you ever build a wall, some stairs with wood? It will surelly requires many tools than just "hammer and nails", and also quite a manual skill to make it stand and resist properly. Is not that simple AT ALL.

All three of this operation are hard to perform. It's just that 2 are in-game, so they go simple and smooth, and 1 isn't in-game. You're right. We'd better make crafting harder. Romain! Romain! I didn't say that. I'm fine the way it's now. I'm saying that cement isn't more hard to manage than wood. Life experiece.

  10. Didn't know that.. fun fact! Seems like you are one of the fews that have understand that my Topic is deliberately a (how do you say in english: 'na strunzata?) pointless. No need to arguing. "I'm ok with that" like I've said!
  11. Yeah, that's what I want to see to. Not just "hit them nice and softly wile they are on the floor". Nice to hear that knives are less deadly in post .15.. No that's ok! But man "realistic"? even my 15 years old sister could kill a man with an axe in one good shot.. so think at what a construction worker, strong, light drinker, prone to rage, brooding guy named "Jack the Beast" would do to a man's head? No need to be always one hit.. even a 20-25% would be good.
  12. Now, can somebody tell me why the fuck I kill zeds like lambs with knives? (1 hit kill) But with a damn Axe or other blunt I can't beat the shit out of them? (can be 1, so damn rare, or 10 hit) I mean... it's quite nonsense. I've just think about that wile I was working in the joinery.. I thought: "I can easly smash my collegue head with one shot with an axe, why can't I do it in PZ?". You can tell it was an hard day. Ok. I have complained enought, no real need to tell me why. I'm ok with that but you know.. just to. Your turn.
  13. That's exacltly what I am talking about.
  14. As you can see in the pics above, as things hit the one month mark my safehouse became somewhat crowded and I had to have words with the locals (my baseball bats are very chatty ). On the food front, I raided both the pancake and burger places early on but never in the nearly 2 months touched any of it, 300 berries stocked up saw me through very nicely. I did have a go at farming but with the water barrels being moody about relinquishing their contents I just filled my face with more berries. I am determined to hit my next marker of 2 months though. Man... i just died like an idiot. I was making a watching tower on the 3 floor. That was great I can see really all my damn safehouse. Then I click the wrong button, "E" instead of "R" to rotate the damn fence I was building, aaand I jumped off the fence. Uploaded with ImageShack.com
