    No, we're leaving those to modders.

    Farm of Fear

    Let’s get something out of the way first then. Ugh. We feel so unclean doing what we’re about to do. SORRY. SORRY EVERYONE… All the other games were posting Steam Awards links like that, so we did too. Don’t vote for us if you’d rather not, but if you do – well click on the above massive intrusive image and that would be swell. So, back to business, we released some final-ish fixes for the current stable build yesterday – the changelist for which can be found here. There may well be another smaller patch, early next week, with some other minor changes – namely a few small anti-cheat measures, a fix for some modded textures and a bit of metal walls weirdness that still needs addressing. B42 FARMING This week we’re going over to Blair, and his current mission on overhauling our Farming system. Now, priority number one is to get things more tactile and animation-led with farming: when you use a watering can we want it through a direct mouse-click and not a maze of sub-menus. Away from this, however, we are also making the overall system more complex, varied and interesting. Elements of this already coded into the 42 mainframe include: Plants have growing seasons, and for most crops there are one or two optimal planting months. You’ll be able to read the best month to plant your crops on the back of seed packets, and if you plant at the wrong time of year you’ll get a reduced yield, and perhaps the risk of producing sickly plants. Appropriate plants, such as Potatoes, can be planted using the vegetable itself. You’ll be able to dry seed Corn and Peas to preserve them for planting next year. Plants can accumulate slugs and snails for the player to deal with – either using looted pest control, or perhaps using a folksy remedy. Nearby slug repellent plants such as Rosemary will help too. Rosemary is one of several herbs added as well. They tend to grow more quickly, and when harvested are knocked back a few growth stages – and then can be harvested again later. The herbs you pick can also be used to propagate new herb patches while they’re still fresh, and can be dried as well. We are expanding the need to water your crops to houseplants. Potted indoor vegetation that players find in the world will now be living – similar, but not identical, to crops. They need to be watered, can fall victim to diseases, and will become visibly unwell before they die and become a dried husk. This also means that they will be another cool signifier of the days that have elapsed since the beginning of the Knox Event – since in time all the plants in homes, shops, the mall etc will wither and die. Elsewhere, we’ve been seeing what animals look like without their clothes/skin on. We’re thinking that these look realistic but a little too fatty and should have a little more muscle on show – but it’s interesting nonetheless. These past two weeks we’ve also made a lot of progress with getting the previously shelved fire system back on track, including the ability for the game to have liquid-looking Molotov fire FX on the ground. The actual visuals are going to be fine-tuned and improved soon, so we’d rather not share images of it, but rest assured it’s going to be pretty cool. Finally, another quick bump for the Spiffo plush that Makeship are creating for us – which is something that the community has been asking for since forever. If you want one you’ve got two weeks to put your order in. In case you want to give it for Christmas then Mash has also created a certificate of gifting intent that will hopefully come in useful. This week’s road-side (well, centre) picnic from Athena. A changelist of all our pre-release and post-release patches since the 41 beta began can be found here. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send you update notifications once builds get released. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too.

    41.78 Released

    Hotfix 41.78.12 - November 23rd: Propane Torch usage rebalanced for Fixing and Repair scripts to accommodate the change in capacity; all reduced to 2. Added "AllowRottenItem:true" parameter to the recipes to Empty Frying Pans; Griddle Pans; and Roasting Pans. This will allow players to reclaim said pans when they let Stir Fries and Omelettes get rotten. Recipes such as the Mildew Spray Cure, and Emptying Sacks of produce now have the field "AllowRottenItem:true" which allows rotten items to be used in that recipe. Fixed the Make Mildew Cure recipe not allowing both regular and Canned Milk; as players were unable to make this cure after all of the normal Milk has gone rotten. Fixed being unable to use Rotten Milk to make the Mildew Spray Cure. Commented out the "Make Pot of Soup" recipes; they're obsolete given the evolved recipe system which handles this matter better. Fixed being unable to use Canned Soup to make evolved recipe soup. Changed the display name of "Canned Soup" to "Canned Vegetable Soup". Note: To make Pots of Soup with Opened Cans of Soup you must now add them to a Pot of Water, as an evolved recipe soup. This fixes the Super Soup exploit and will allow players to also add additional ingredients to the Soup. The other way of making Pots of Soup was an obsolete and in many ways incompatible method from before the evolved recipe system. Updated the Clean Tray recipe so it works with trays of Biscuit Dough, and also so that it works with rotten and cooked ingredients, so players can always recover a tray from rotten trays of food. Several tweaks to clothing masks. Added missing SetMelee Delay on Pistol Whip animation. Fixed Hoodie and Vest masks to work properly with base mesh. Fixed JokeKnife, JokeArrow, BunnyEars, FurryEars, Antlers and GodStar Headbopper to work with all hairstyles. Fixed moodle and heart wiggle-speed, now reduced by half. Fixed an issue with forageSystem.lua not accounting for the new loot rarity settings. Fixed the veteran having some duplicate clothing selection options. Fixed in-game map road that was made curved in cell 35,31. Fixed print() statement from JoyPadSetup.lua that resulted in unnecessary messages in the console log. Fixed source files not being loaded in the Lua debugger on Linux. Fixed mod Lua files not being loaded in the Lua debugger. Fixed being able to purify Watering Cans in an Oven. Fixed being able to turn Cooked Eggs back into Uncooked Eggs. Fixed Pizzas having the hasMetal tag. Fixed error in SliceCooked test. Fixed PopEmpty2 and PopEmpty3 having DisplayCategory = WaterContainer instead of DisplayCategory = Junk. Fixed PopEmpty having DisplayCategory = Material instead of DisplayCategory = Junk. Fixed BeerCanEmpty having DisplayCategory = WaterContainer instead of Junk. Fixed Buckets not having been updated to use metal filling sounds instead of plastic filling sounds. Fixed distant players not appearing on the in-game map when the server option allows it. Fixed Male_Undies not having the "OBSOLETE = TRUE" parameter. Also removed them from the foraging pool. Fixed not using a language's desired encoding when reading credits.txt. Fixed non-admins seeing invisible remote players on the in-game map.
  4. It'll go pretty quick since we're pushing early in the week. The time you're referring to had an extended weekend due to a national holiday, and there was an issue that prevented a Window offline build. Linux and Mac were already there. So they're pretty quick. You just lived through an exception
  5. Hotfix 41.78.10 - November 21st: - Fixed being able to purify Watering Cans in a Microwave or Oven. - Fixed being able to turn Cooked Eggs back into Uncooked Eggs. - Fixed Pizzas having the hasMetal tag. - Fixed error in SliceCooked test. - Fixed distant players not appearing on the in-game map when the server option allows it. - Fixed Male_Undies not having the "OBSOLETE = TRUE" parameter. Also removed them from the foraging pool. This build will be pushed to Stable within the next day or two.

    41.78 Released

    We agree, but we're not making that change for 41.
  7. Good day, exhausted scavengers! This time we have not just one but FIVE community made maps for you to explore, build, fight and die in. All five were entries to the Halloween Community Map Jam run by Pertominus on their Discord server, and are a diverse collection of spooky maps that are fun to play all year round. Backrooms by Azakaela (previously featured on this very mod blog) is inspired by the “Backrooms” creepypasta, where a person finds themselves in endless, haunted yellow corridors, stalked by strange, unknown entities (though in PZ, those entities are a little less “strange” and a little more “zombified). Peles Mansion (based on Peles Castle in Romania) by Daddy Dirkie Dirk is an elaborate and beautiful mansion featuring many custom tiles, while Finnegan Mental Asylum by Fred Cooper is a sprawling, infested complex with a prison and implied experiments – very unlike the benevolent activities of our canon Finnegan Research Group. Gabester (of Elysium Island) is the creator of The Museum, another sprawling complex, this one filled with a variety of waxwork models, custom tiles, and (with the proper mods installed) some cool old-world weapons to fight the hordes with. The final entry is the winner of the map jam: Overlook Hotel by Pertominus themselves, an incredibly atmospheric recreation of the famous hotel from The Shining, filled with recognisable locations (and that famous, awful carpet). We wanted to find out more about the map jam and each of the maps, so we tracked down Pertominus themselves. They kindly took time off from typing “all work and no PZ makes Jack a dull boy” to answer our questions! Pertominus Hi Pertominus! Before we dive into the map jam, tell us how and when did you discover PZ? “I picked up Zomboid in 2015, logged a couple hundred hours on it, and put it away until Build 41. Since then I have stacked up over two thousand hours, mostly playing multiplayer with friends on the Aussie Survival Server.” Tell us about your own maps and mapping experiences prior to the community jam. “Prior to Map-Jam I had only published Christmas Village. It’s a quirky seasonal map that I created for a Christmas event, to play with friends. It should have been as fun to play as it was to make. Instead, it got almost everyone killed (sorry, gang)!” Please give us an overview of the Halloween map jam, and tell us a little about each of the entries. Have you created or participated in other map jams before? “The 2022 Map-Jam was an idea originally proposed by Azakaela who wanted to expand the contest after the 2021’s ‘A to B’ Map Jam. Just like a ‘game jam’, a ‘map jam’ is an accelerated creation event where themed maps or buildings are created in a relatively short time frame, and the end results are shared publicly. The rules were pretty simple: anything creepy-crawly, spooky-scary, that goes bump in the night or gives you fright!” Finnegan Asylum, by Fred Cooper “The Finnegan Asylum, only loosely associated with Finnegan Research Group, was the first entry to show any serious development in the contest. Its huge layout is impressive enough but especially so for a first time map maker! Fred Cooper didn’t miss a single tile and kept improving the map even after the deadline. It’s a challenging but rewarding map, it fits into the vanilla world and has all the necessities for survival. I would recommend bringing the entire faction and a trailer of weapons for this challenge map. I’m definitely thankful to Fred Cooper for showing interest early on and motivating others to compete.” The Museum, by Gabester “The Museum was a late entry for the Jam but showed up with dozens of previously unreleased assets that were an absolute crowd favorite. It’s got a few secrets hidden inside and several fantastic references from the Mapping Discord, but Gabester really outdid himself with the Steam preview video, it’s a must see! The Museum was actually tied for first place after the judges voting so we had a difficult tie-breaking decision to make.” Backrooms V3, by Azakaela Redfire “Aza managed to keep development of this HUGE map secret, and then revealed that it was completed and ready to go weeks before anyone else. It was impressive how fast she got through it considering the restraints of working with buildings that size. There are a lot of confusing passageways which are the same but in the centre and towards the edges there are some very unique scenes which are worth surviving to explore.” Peles Mansion, by Daddy Dirkie Dirk “Dirkie smashed out this entry over two days in the final week of the competition, but it’s still packed with content. It has heaps of custom tiles, some made specifically for this map! It’s in a really nice spot and intentionally hidden from the map so it would be a really cool place for a hidden base/event on servers.” Your spectacular Overlook Hotel map won the map jam. Can you tell us how you made it? How long did it take? “Overlook took me a solid month to finish. I based the exterior appearance off the Stanley Hotel, which inspired Stephen King to write The Shining, and I was fortunate in this case because the building is so well photographed. Google Maps even has interior walkthroughs of the building for the numerous hallways and suites that I had no inspiration for. The Shining is also a bit of a cult classic so naturally there are dedicated fans who anonymously compile floor plans and reference images for no reason at all. I browsed a few of these sites as well and they were a huge help! With all this great reference material all I had to do was find the closest tiles visually.” “For the interior of the Overlook I tried to recreate the iconic movie design. the carpet, the walls, along with the blood and some easter eggs like the skeleton room and the chopped door.” What tips do you have for anyone trying to win a map jam? “I think it depends on the judges, we had a good mix this time! Players like one thing, server admins like another, and modders/devs look for something else entirely. The best advice is to get started early! share WIP images with the community, and encourage anyone who is considering making an entry to do so. So even if you don’t come first you still win a load of fun and friendship.” Do you have any mapping tips in general? “We always say start small! There are a lot of benefits to this besides just setting an achievable goal. Seeing the entire map making process from start to finish helps you optimise for a larger project, set up the tools correctly, get the most out of presets, establish your workflow and build up your custom assets.” Is there anyone in the PZ community (or beyond) you would like to give a shout-out to? “Hell yes! Thanks to all the Unofficial Mapping Discord admins for helping out with the organisation of the Jam, to Gabester for being such a good sport and competitor, to Dirkie, Azakaela and Fred Cooper for participating in this year’s competition to Nasko and Ayrton (the TIS devs who helped judge), and thanks to NoMiS, ItsAmelora, AuthenticPeach and RoyaleWithCheese who also judged. Be sure to check out their channels!” Outside of the jam, which maps or mods by other users do you enjoy or find interesting? “I’m somewhat of a collector so I have almost all the maps! I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite but a fun mod we fought to have installed on the server that I HAVE to recommend is Edible Junk, because I think eating crayons is just harmlessly funny.” What’s next in your mapping plans? What’s the dream? “Short term goal is to finish my Phoenix map, which some might remember from pre-41. Long term goal is to help get the Simpsons-Springfield and Fallout community projects into a releasable state. Both of these are huge projects that intend to be complete overhaul mods so there is lots of work to be done, not just mapping!” “Future map jams are guaranteed. We haven’t decided on the next theme yet but we’re also toying with the idea of a smaller scale building jam!” Thanks to Pertominus for answering our questions, and to everyone who entered their map jam! You can find all five maps here.
  8. Hotfix 41.78.9 - November 17th: - Several tweaks to clothing masks. - Updated the Clean Tray recipe so it works with trays of Biscuit Dough, and also so that it works with rotten and cooked ingredients, so players can always recover a tray from rotten trays of food. - Fixed "Pour on Ground" Shortbread Cookies recipe, replaced it with a recipe to Empty Baking Trays. - Fixed possible Lua error with setUseSteamRelay(nil) calls in the server browser. - Fixed being unable to slice Cakes or Pies. - Fixed being unable to put evolved recipe Rice and Pasta into Bowls. Barring further hotfixes, this is the build that will be going out to Stable early next week.
  9. Unlikely, we're focused on expanding the current map.
  10. No, not an oversight. Yes, graphic sex is pornographic. No, a nude body is not pornographic. It's not content we want our game to be associated with. The document serves as legal groundwork; "covering our asses", in simple terms. It naturally means we reserve the right to take action against mods that break the ToS and/or Modding Policy where we see fit. You will never hear a company go "Ah nah we just put it there to cover our asses but we won't actually bother doing anything about it wink wink" since that would nullify that aspect of the relevant terms/policy legally. We wouldn't know if they're playing with the mod or not. Mods that are not allowed on the Steam Workshop can exist outside of it. The Terms of Service and Modding Policy still apply to them regardless of where they are published. No, they are not specific to the Steam Workshop, they are a policy for modding the game.
  11. Mods. If it happens in vanilla, let us know.
  12. Do you mind posting a screenshot or video of the issue. They look fine on my end.
  13. Not sure if it's just me but I don't see those pictures.
  14. Hotfix 41.78.8 - November 16th: - Propane Torch usage rebalanced for Fixing and Repair scripts to accommodate the change in capacity; all reduced to 2. - Added "AllowRottenItem:true" parameter to the recipes to Empty Frying Pans; Griddle Pans; and Roasting Pans. This will allow players to reclaim said pans when they let Stir Fries and Omelettes get rotten. - Recipes such as the Mildew Spray Cure, and Emptying Sacks of produce now have the field "AllowRottenItem:true" which allows rotten items to be used in that recipe. - Fixed the Make Mildew Cure recipe not allowing both regular and Canned Milk; as players were unable to make this cure after all of the normal Milk has gone rotten. - Fixed being unable to use Rotten Milk to make the Mildew Spray Cure. - Commented out the "Make Pot of Soup" recipes; they're obsolete given the evolved recipe system which handles this matter better. - Fixed being unable to use Canned Soup to make evolved recipe soup. - Changed the display name of "Canned Soup" to "Canned Vegetable Soup". Note: To make Pots of Soup with Opened Cans of Soup you must now add them to a pot of water, as an evolved recipe soup. This fixes the Super Soup exploit and will allow players to also add additional ingredients to the Soup. The other way of making Pots of Soup was an obsolete and in many ways incompatible method from before the evolved recipe system. - Added missing SetMelee Delay on Pistol Whip animation. - Fixed Hoodie and Vest masks to work properly with base mesh. - Fixed JokeKnife, JokeArrow, BunnyEars, FurryEars, Antlers and GodStar Headbopper to work with all hairstyles. - Fixed moodle and heart wiggle-speed, now reduced by half. - Fixed an issue with forageSystem.lua not accounting for the new loot rarity settings. - Fixed the veteran having some duplicate clothing selection options. - Fixed in-game map road that was made curved in cell 35,31. - Fixed print() statement from JoyPadSetup.lua that resulted in unnecessary messages in the console log. - Fixed source files not being loaded in the Lua debugger on Linux. - Fixed mod Lua files not being loaded in the Lua debugger.

    41.78 Released

    It was updated yesterday already. Not sure why the offline installers are not available for Windows yet but I reckon it won't take too long. You can check through GOG Galaxy though. If it doesn't show up, try the Unstable beta channel as a workaround, I've just published it on that channel too as a possible workaround.
  19. Select the legacy41_77 beta branch on Steam. No, auto-updates cannot be disabled.

    Spiffo and Friends

    Hello survivors! Three things of note this week. FINAL BUILD 41 PATCH RELEASED This afternoon we put out 41.78 to the stable branch, and you can read its changelist here. Nothing seems to have exploded just yet, but there will very likely be a hot fix for anything that does crop up. We’ve had a few complaints of visual issues with some clothing that we’d thought we’d fixed for instance, that can probably get a quick look-over again before we move on. This patch is largely quality of life changes, some MP tweaks and fixes for longstanding annoyances – so hopefully you’ll see a few things in the changelist that make you feel both cherished and warm. Other than that hot fix, unless we return if circumstances demand it, the final devs who were tinkering in Build 41 will from this point on all be fully aboard the Build 42 train. BARNYARD FRIENDS First, let us reiterate – Build 42 is still a long way off. However RJ’s development playpen for the domestic animals that the build will feature is still ticking along quite nicely. This week he has prepared two videos for your delight but first TWO caveats. First, our animator Martin wants it known that one of the things we’ll be working on will be the way animals turn / turn when they move. Secondly, clearly what you’re seeing here is debug dev-stuff – especially how it looks and operates when leading an animal around on a rope. We haven’t quite landed on the best way to herd animals around yet, and will likely have to land at a halfway house between realistic, feasible and fun. Likewise, thirdly I guess, UIs clearly aren’t final yet either. So here’s proof that you can pet the cute little animals in Build 42 of Project Zomboid. And here’s how to coax them into a trailer so you can cart them off to slaughter them somewhere distant so their loud desperate squeals won’t attract zombies. MAGICAL WOODLAND FRIEND Yes, it’s happened. Spiffo merchandise is finally a thing. Behold! More information to come later on down the line. But for now… To register your interest in crowdfunding a Spiffo plushie visit the Makeship Store! The full campaign begins in less than a week! To find out how you could win one of two free plushies visit this twitter post! This week’s table arsenal from Polaris. A changelist of all our pre-release and post-release patches since the 41 beta began can be found here. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send you update notifications once builds get released. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too. No-one is allowed to make a jar-based gag in the presence of our Spiffo plushie, please, as we had to google it and oh dear god no please no.
  21. All for it. Has to wait for Build 42 at this point, though.
  22. Hotfix 41.78.7 - November 9th: - DB Viewer userlog will now have the value in the amount field increased for repeated counts of suspicious activity. - znet is rebuilt for MacOS 10.12.6 - Fixed in-game map position of a shed in cell 35,32. - Fixed Lacerations and Stitches not becoming infected. Cover stitches with alcohol soaked bandages to avoid them from getting infected. This is likely going to be the build going out to the Stable branch tomorrow.
  23. Hotfix 41.78.12 - November 23rd: Propane Torch usage rebalanced for Fixing and Repair scripts to accommodate the change in capacity; all reduced to 2. Added "AllowRottenItem:true" parameter to the recipes to Empty Frying Pans; Griddle Pans; and Roasting Pans. This will allow players to reclaim said pans when they let Stir Fries and Omelettes get rotten. Recipes such as the Mildew Spray Cure, and Emptying Sacks of produce now have the field "AllowRottenItem:true" which allows rotten items to be used in that recipe. Fixed the Make Mildew Cure recipe not allowing both regular and Canned Milk; as players were unable to make this cure after all of the normal Milk has gone rotten. Fixed being unable to use Rotten Milk to make the Mildew Spray Cure. Commented out the "Make Pot of Soup" recipes; they're obsolete given the evolved recipe system which handles this matter better. Fixed being unable to use Canned Soup to make evolved recipe soup. Changed the display name of "Canned Soup" to "Canned Vegetable Soup". Note: To make Pots of Soup with Opened Cans of Soup you must now add them to a Pot of Water, as an evolved recipe soup. This fixes the Super Soup exploit and will allow players to also add additional ingredients to the Soup. The other way of making Pots of Soup was an obsolete and in many ways incompatible method from before the evolved recipe system. Updated the Clean Tray recipe so it works with trays of Biscuit Dough, and also so that it works with rotten and cooked ingredients, so players can always recover a tray from rotten trays of food. Several tweaks to clothing masks. Added missing SetMelee Delay on Pistol Whip animation. Fixed Hoodie and Vest masks to work properly with base mesh. Fixed JokeKnife, JokeArrow, BunnyEars, FurryEars, Antlers and GodStar Headbopper to work with all hairstyles. Fixed moodle and heart wiggle-speed, now reduced by half. Fixed an issue with forageSystem.lua not accounting for the new loot rarity settings. Fixed the veteran having some duplicate clothing selection options. Fixed in-game map road that was made curved in cell 35,31. Fixed print() statement from JoyPadSetup.lua that resulted in unnecessary messages in the console log. Fixed source files not being loaded in the Lua debugger on Linux. Fixed mod Lua files not being loaded in the Lua debugger. Fixed being able to purify Watering Cans in an Oven. Fixed being able to turn Cooked Eggs back into Uncooked Eggs. Fixed Pizzas having the hasMetal tag. Fixed error in SliceCooked test. Fixed PopEmpty2 and PopEmpty3 having DisplayCategory = WaterContainer instead of DisplayCategory = Junk. Fixed PopEmpty having DisplayCategory = Material instead of DisplayCategory = Junk. Fixed BeerCanEmpty having DisplayCategory = WaterContainer instead of Junk. Fixed Buckets not having been updated to use metal filling sounds instead of plastic filling sounds. Fixed distant players not appearing on the in-game map when the server option allows it. Fixed Male_Undies not having the "OBSOLETE = TRUE" parameter. Also removed them from the foraging pool. Fixed not using a language's desired encoding when reading credits.txt. Fixed non-admins seeing invisible remote players on the in-game map. NEW Added a prompt for the updated Terms of Service as we are a big boy game now and have to fit in with the other biggerer boys. Added sandbox option to disable Fake Dead Reanimation. Disabled Fake deads in MP by default. Added more control over fake dead behaviour to the sandbox options; having zombies that were "killed" having a chance to become fake dead is an option that is off by default. Added sandbox option that allows Corpse Maggot spawning to be disabled or limited to corpse inventory. Added sandbox option that allows poisoning food to be disabled, or for poisoning food with bleach to be disabled. Added sandbox option to disable the Tainted Water Tooltip/Warning for hardcore play Added sandbox option for enabling/disabling XP multipliers affecting passive skills, which is false by default. Added sandbox option that prevents survivor vehicles from spawning. Added sandbox option "Light Bulb Lifespan". This does not affect Light Bulbs in vehicles, only in light fixture tiles. Added "Randomize" options to Zombie sandbox options for Memory, Sight, and Hearing. Added loot rarity settings "Incredibly Rare" and "None", as well as a "Super Low" option for Fuel Pump content. Items from table stories/randomized stories/etc will still spawn when loot rarity is set to none. Renamed Item "Weight" to "Encumbrance" in the UI and context menu. Added an Accessibility Option that makes the player character automatically walk to a click container within a short radius of 3 tiles. Added the ability to set custom "Good" and "Bad" highlighting colours in the Accessibility Options menu. This is applied to things like traits, tooltips, and the aiming outline. Added an option to bind "Walk To" to a key instead of having to go through the RMB menu. Added highlighting to clicked Crates so it's easier to tell which crate is selected. This can be enabled or disabled in the in-game Options. Added a Context Menu entry that enables/disables Auto-Drink. Tiles that are being disassembled will now be highlighted in the "bad colour", red being the default. Resolutions higher than 1440p will have their zoom levels adjusted to allow closer zoom-in, bringing it more in line with lower resolutions. Disabled some Randomized Survivor Safehouses from occurring in instances where a building has over 10 rooms, or is a spawn location. The limit is 10 for some and 20 for other Randomized Survivor Safehouses. This also means the Toilet Paper story is now disabled in buildings that have over 10 rooms or are spawn locations, which will likely reduce the amount of Reddit posts about it by 50%. Added a check to prevent any of the randomized burnt building stories from occurring if the building is a spawn location. Changed ISCloseVehicleDoor to play the door closing sound when the action is completed instead of its start. This is to provide better feedback for players in cases where they have unwittingly cancelled this action. Added "HasMetal" tag for items. This tag was added to food and water items in metal containers, which will now set microwaves on fire when microwaved. Adjusted the mechanics UI so that both the Battery Charge and Condition are included in the Battery entry in the list of parts. Modified the vehicle mechanics UI to prominently feature the % of a full tank of gas it has, in addition to the battery charge. Added a few more existing clothing options to the character creation. Added the ability to destroy only one wall when selecting corner walls. Replaced the bucket world static model textures with metal icons and textures and not plastic ones, as buckets are now metal and not plastic. Updated the BucketEmpty and BucketWaterFull scripts with tooltips and IsCookable to reflect that they are now metal and not plastic. Changed the icon of the Watering Can With Water to match the Empty Water Can and the Watering Can models. Added a stale tooltip for perishable food to display, when appropriate, that such food is neither fresh nor rotten. Added tooltip to Club Hammers and Mallets explaining that they are unsuitable for driving nails. Flatpack model is applied to movable items that use the Flatpack icon. Made more food items capable of being added to tacos and burritos. Bell Pepper can now be added to Stews. Added a check so cooked eggs cannot be used for inappropriate non-evolved recipes. Removed the requirement for hot water to make a bowl of oats. Changed the Violet FoodType to NoExplicit. Trash tiles (Movable items) and Plastic Bags can now be used as tinder and fuel for fires. Changed the Sawed-off Shotgun recipes to only use the hacksaw, and not the garden saw; a wood saw would be unable to cut through the metal barrel of a shotgun. Added the Meat Cleaver to the Slice Onions recipe. Removed it from the Jack-o'-lantern recipe. Changed the Cigarettes script to prioritize using Matches before a Lighter if both are in the same inventory. Added a new Doctor's bag and military duffel bag. Renamed "Hemophobic" trait to "Fear of Blood". Vehicle Spawn Chance rate can now be a float value instead of just an int. Added a check to prevent items that "weigh" over 50 units from being put in vehicle seats. This is an ongoing issue with bags/containers that are modded over capacity, which get stuck once placed in vehicle seats when the bag + contents have an Encumbrance of >50. Changed translation strings to make bottle names more consistent. Changed IGUI_HouseKey from "House Key" to "Key" to avoid issues with non-residential keys. Removed the numeric information tooltip provided when selecting eat all/half/quarter food item context options. Commented out the tool definitions in ClothingRecipesDefinitions as they currently are nonfunctional and serve no purpose aside from confusing modders. Commented out the WoodenLance in the safehouse weapons distro lists; that item is redundant vs SpearCrafted, and also doesn't work with spear recipes. SpearCrafted already spawns with safehouse weapons. Replaced AmmoStraps in the safehouse armor distro list with AmmoStraps_Bullets and AmmoStraps_Shells. Changed the display name translation string for the wearable AmmoStraps items to Bandolier on account of consistent confusion with the weapon attachment that is also called Ammo Straps. Changed the display name translation string for firearm magazines to use the firearm it is for, and not the caliber, as the prefix. Solves having two .308 Magazines, for both the MSR788 and the M14, and also that's how they're named in real life. Added a tooltip to firearm magazines that displays the ammunition type that it accepts. Added missing models for Candy Corn, Candied Fruit Slices, Hot Sauce, Fountain Cups, JuJubes, Nettles, Shrimp Dumplings, Poached Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, Packaged Corn, Pickled Ginger, Sugar Cookies, Fish Sushi, Radio Receivers,Radio Transmitters, Gummy Bears, Gummy Worms, and Tent Kits. MULTIPLAYER Added server option "KnockedDownAllowed" to enable/disable the PVP knockdown. This is a stopgap change to give servers an option to make PVP combat less frustrating before we can address PVP combat more directly in the future. Adjusted Type 3 and 5 Anticheat to reduce false-positives. Added auto-completion for player nicknames when pressing TAB while typing in the Chatbox. Added RCON command "checkModsNeedUpdate" to check for mods that need to be updated. Allow other non-admin permission levels to delete items in inventory/containers. Added Checksum logging for MP servers, enabled by default for now. Extended NetChecksum logs: Client dumps logs into checksum.txt. Client sends logs to server. Server dumps logs into checksum.txt. Server dumps client's logs into checksum- .txt. Multiplayer clients will now retry the GettingServerInfo request 3 times. DB Viewer userlog will now have the amount field increased for repeated counts of suspicious activity. When sorting the relative paths of scripts and Lua files to determine load order, the relative paths are first converted to lowercase. This is to fix platform differences breaking checksums in multiplayer. It also fixes the issue where the same file might be loaded more than once if mods use different capitalization for the same file or folder. Fixed the multiplayer "whisper" command corrupting the Lua environment due to multithreading. Fixed being unable to claim a safehouse unless standing on the ground floor. Fixed not checking upper floors for other players or zombies when claiming a safehouse. Fixed an exception on the server when food rots into a new item in a container that isn't in the world any longer. Fixed new stubble getting added to remote players after each appearance change. Fixed text annotations not appearing on annotated maps in multiplayer. Fixed Endurance sync in the Admin Health Tool. Fixed a bug that didn't display mods in the mod list of a server in the ESC menu. Fixed admins being unable to remove car hoods while inside the vehicle. Fixed players being unable to interact with Radios they placed themselves. Fixed a safehouse owner always respawning in their safehouse when the option to do so is unchecked. BALANCE Modified the M16 & M14 critical values to be more consistent with other rifles. M16 CriticalChance changed from 30 to 25. Added CritDmgMultiplier 10 Added AimingPerkCritModifier 12 M14 CriticalChance changed from 0 to 30. Added CritDmgMultiplier 10 AimingPerkCritModifier 15 Disabled the cumulative slowdown until the next shot when firing the M16 in automatic mode. Firing the M16 in automatic mode will cumulatively reduce the chance of a critical with each additional shot. This is intended to represent the loss in accuracy due to recoil. Short summary of the various changes in this changelog that impact the Propane Torch and Propane Tanks. There has been a pretty longstanding bug where Propane Torches were not used up for several Disassemblies. With the fix, usage of them was reduced from 100 to 10 but the number of refills per tank was adjusted from 2 to 16, along with changes that make sure players find more Propane Tanks in the world to offset the reduction. Set some traits to be mutually exclusive to remove exploits or illogical combinations. Hot-Wiring a vehicle will have a low chance of causing a car alarm. The chance for this is decreased further for higher electronics skill levels. Zombies pushing up against a previously unentered stationary vehicle have a chance to set off an alarm. Removed the undesired RNG check that made vehicle alarms go off only 20% of the time. Fixed car hoods being unable to trigger vehicle alarms. Disabled being able to make melee attacks while inside a vehicle with the window rolled down. Randomized the fall damage that zombies take. This randomized spread will average out to the previous damage before it was randomized; this will have a minor impact (hohoho) on the damage that zombies that fall suffer, but slightly more of them will be able to be killed by this than before. Made it so groin injuries from not-crawler zombies are less common, and that crawlers can also inflict uncommon groin injuries. Increased the yield of metal parts when scrapping wrecked vehicles by 33%. Added a new procedural container, "CratePropane", to garages and shed. Increased the spawn rates for Propane Tanks in the distributions. Increased the spawnrate of Thread and added the chance of Sewing Kits to spawn in gloveboxes. Trailer capacity now reduces slightly when damaged, as there was no point in repairing them before. Changed Bowling Ball Bag capacity from 2 to 8. Increase number of Plaster uses to 10, same as Paint. Allow plastic bags and money to be used as tinder Adjusted duration of the stationary Pistol Whip animation, it's now the same length as the shove animation. Adjusted the capacities of pistol and revolver cases from 7 down to 4. Adjusted Encumbrance of the sturdy stick item to 1 to be more consistent with other items. Adjusted Encumbrance of fire extinguishers to 2, to be consistent with other items. Decreased Encumbrance of Walkie-Talkies. Adjusted Encumbrance of the TreeBranch item to match that of a crafted spear, to 1.7 from 1; The Encumbrance discrepancy has been remarked upon repeatedly, and this also serves in making item Encumbrance more consistent. Adjusted the amount of fuel that spawns in fuel pumps at Low and Very Low. Updated the nutritional value for Canned Evaporated Milk. Calories 472; Carbs, Lipids, and Proteins at 23.6 Changed the days until rotten for Bagels from 2 to 6. Gave the Stir Fry and roast script items a default hunger value of 10. This was previously reported as a bug when players spawned the item in instead of making it via the evolved recipe. Maggots are slightly more poisonous. Fewer maggots spawn, especially in spring and fall (maggots don't spawn during winter). Maggots are now a default item in the world item removal lists. Added a comment for the world item removal lists explaining that Base.Maggots should stay in the list due to corpse maggots. Additional safeguard to prevent errors when using mods that remove maggots altogether. DEBUG / MODDING Added a search bar to the LootZed cheat panel. Added vehicle distributions to LootZed. Improved inventory check-in Check Stats panel. Right-clicking on a fuel pump in debug mode will display the amount of fuel in the pump in the right-click context menu. Added logging of player injuries caused by zombies to the console when in debug mode. Added isStartValid function check for BaseTimedAction. Allows checking if an action is valid before the action starts. Added saving ModData from IsoGameCharacter to IsoDeadBody and from IsoDeadBody to IsoZombie. Added "OnPlayerGetDamage" event. Added event "OnWeaponHitThumpable" (Args: character, weapon, object) Added a trigger for the OnFillContainer Event when vehicle part containers are filled. Added the tag "CarBattery" which can be used with mod item car batteries so they can be charged with the vanilla car battery charger. Added the event "OnThrowableExplode", which transmits the IsoTrap and IsoSquare when one detonates. Added a toggle option in the vehicle debug context menu that will show if a vehicle's alarm is enabled or disabled. Changed Fast Move cheat in debug. Players can now levitate on different height levels via the PageUP/PageDown keys, and move around via the Arrow Keys on the different height levels. Made ImageScale, SeatOffsetY and SeatOffsetX global and not local in ISVehicleSeatUI. "Missing translation", "ignoring invalid ItemPicker item type", and "VEHICLE MISSING CONT DISTRIBUTION" console messages will now only appear when using debug mode. Exposed the MediaData.MediaLineData class. When the Sound.WorldSound.Render debug option is enabled, world sounds are rendered according to the Hearing sandbox option. For Hearing=Random (where each zombie may have a different radius) sounds are rendered using the Hearing=Normal radius. This does not mean that their hearing radius is not randomized, it only means that a world sound radius cannot be rendered on a per zombie basis in debug mode. For Hearing=Pinpoint/Normal/Poor, meta-zombie hearing radius is handled properly. FileDifferent, FileNotOnServer, and FileNotOnClient errors will now display the absolute paths of both files. This should make it clearer that a mod might just have been using the wrong capitalization for a folder. Fixed characters in godmode still changing body weight. Fixed instances of the Cheat Menu not working after a player died. Fixed removing bodies via Horde manager not working in SP. Fixed being stuck in a vehicle after trying to uninstall/install a car part through the Mechanics Cheat, when a character was inside the vehicle. Fixed bug with health panel: Fully healing a body part now also removes its muscle fatigue. Fixed mod texture packs being loaded before Core.TileScale was set based on the double-sized-textures option. This would result in 2x texture packs being loaded instead of 1x texture packs.

Fixed evolved recipe error in scripts for Lemons and Lime. Fixed Machetes not losing condition when used to craft spears from branches/planks. Fixed Empty Beer Bottle using the wrong icons. Fixed the space before commas in evolved recipe item names. Fixed missing recipe for Opening Canned Fruit Beverage. Changed "Canned Condensed Milk" to "Canned Evaporated Milk" because people are really passionate about milk in can lore. Fixed melted ice cream not rotting.
