    About the batteries in 6 months after the apo: What's taking in calcul is the time since apocalypse sandbox option + the world age hour, what I first did was close to the reality, I had to change the battery on my car 2 times 'cause i didn't used, it last approx 5-6months if I don't start it, so that's what I did in PZ. Now thing being: even if i have an old car, there's much more electronics in it than back then, so battery should be drained faster (imo... i'm far from being an expert on car.. Heck i had my driving licence at 30 :D) but also it wasn't that fun (even tho, i think 6 months after apo should be tough, not giving the player cars easily in this mode, it's meant to be hard...). After 39.67.3, you should approx have 50% chance of finding a working battery on a car, even if the car is trash, you could always take off the battery and put it on another car. If people find this too easy i'll lower it again (before it was like 5% chance of finding a working battery in 6 months after the apocalypse :D), remember you have a car battery charger now I'll add possibility to start the car via jump cable in the future (tough to decide what to do if you drive the car with cable attached etc... Not a high prio for now I think)

    Some cars are meant to be rare, in the 90's not a lot of people had mercedes or bmw I'll look to add bit more zones for them, but it will never be as common as a small or normal car. For the auto shop, can u point me which one you've tried exactlY? (a pzmap link would be awesome :D) loot table may be off sometimes :/

    @Neutz Seeing your save problem, you can modify the .bat (or directly add a java launch option in steam for PZ) -Dnosave to avoid creating a save (will still do one for MP, but not for SP) pretty usefull
  15. RELEASED: IWBUMS Build 39.67.3

    IWBUMS 39.60 [NEW] New FaceDirection=true ParkingStall property aligns front of vehicle to Direction edge (provides support for parallel-parked cars instead of randomly-oriented ones.) - Tim B.

Emptyoutside rooms were placed in BuildingEd on roof-like bits that stick out from buildings as well as covered areas (at gas stations for example). Treating these as rooms caused some issues: 1) Zombies could spawn in them (on roofs overhanging the level below for example). 2) Generators placed in them would poison the whole building. 3) Lighting wasn't the same as other outside squares. 4) Curtains might be placed on the wrong side of windows. 5) Exterior doors were treated as interior ones.)
