  1. Sorry to bother you, I know I'm a total noob and a pester. I just wanted to enjoy Zomboid multiplayer. I know for sure that we have the exact same versions, but we can uninstall and reinstall if needed. I will probably have more questions I'm sure but I wanted to extend my sincerest thanks for being willing to help me out. The question that comes to mind is how to verify our game's caches. That's admittedly not something I've ever done or even read up on while doing all that work. I'm still afraid the server will tell her that it won't connect due to "Files not matching Server [Settin
  2. I've been attempting to get a basic server running for about 5 hours now. I've tried using the in game hosting option and inviting another player to join me (I've also had the player in question try to click on my username and join me that way). However, they are unable to do so even after I send an invitation. The server, among other things, kicked her out due to "files not matching the server's [settings/files/something]" So there's that faint glimmer of hope right before being kicked in the balls. So here's my question guys. Can you guys end my nightmare? Can you show me h
  3. And on the same thread: And by Lemmy (still same thread): Another UI rework? ;-; Yep our last change was for the better but the current UI system still leaves a lot to be desired and outside combat is still probably our #1 complaint about the game as it stands, for new players particularly. Our third stab, which is only being done in little bits every so often and likely won't see light of day for a good while, will hopefully hit all the notes, be more intuitive, quicker to access and manipulate, but at the same time have more depth to it. For e.g. imagine having a pistol in your
  4. I'm really glad some people are getting into this idea. I mean, with police vests and military vests it could double as body armor (along with the proposed makeshift armor). Plus it would be awesome to store even a handful of things in your vests and cargo pants depending on what they are. It would be far smaller than say a garbage bag (storage wise), but I truly think it would feel more like a survival experience. Since as stated, that's the first thing I would do, get clothes that could carry items and a bag so I could keep as much stuff on me as possible. Even if the pants or vests don't ca
  5. And maybe the hunting vests could allow you to be easily seen, Cuz 'round these here parts, we got them fangled neon-colored gear. (I'm pretty sure it's mandatory if it's to be used in hunting) It's to let hunters know your not an animal, In case you don't know. So, It would have to either make you easily spotted, or can be spotted from further away. I don't know.... Exactly! Brilliant! So it could have a nice balance of pros and cons. Gotta admit, that was a really fast reply. I love the Zomboid community so much. Hahah. Maybe the Cargo Pants cause you to make more noise depending on how
  6. I think this is a great idea. It was one I was thinking of too. I certainly hope it makes it into the final game. Something to distract the Zombie Hordes would be excellent. I miss being able to leave an oven on for a long period of time and basically set off fire alarms to lure Zombies to those houses. I think that feature got removed, but I'm hoping it comes back. Because I really would love to loot a house that's far from my base, set off the fire alarm when I'm a decent distance away and have all the Zombies get attracted towards that noise. I believe you could do that back when you did

    Starting items.

    I'm pretty sure this article is dated, but it does show how to make custom sprites AND at the end that you can make an item and have your character start out with said item. Maybe with a little work on the lua you could add already in-game items to your character. Hopefully this helps. It involves a little modding but the article breaks down things pretty well in my opinion. So hey, maybe it'll help out. Just trying to lend a hand where I can. =] http://pz-mods.net/guide/adding-custom-item-sprites/ Warmest Regards, Flaros
  8. I was going to suggest makeshift armor as well as new hairstyles (like a mohawk, since I have one) but that appears to have already been suggested so I'll add another idea I had been tinkering around with. Also, a more user friendly map editor down the road would be sweet (I'd love to make my home town), but I digress. -- After playing several other Zombie and overall Survival games, I think there is room to add some cool features that could balance out the game and add a bit of flare without ruining the spirit of the game. Such as: Cargo Pants Police Pants Military Pants Cargo Vests Hunter
  9. Just curious. Has anyone tried to add a vest (or clothes) that would also double as storage? So that one could have say, a military bag or hiking back on their back, but also wear a vest that would lessen their weight and increase their capacity while also storing items? That way you could theoretically have three (or more) ways of storing items? Secondary slot for smaller bags, back for larger backs and a vest for other items? I've been doing a little research on the subject but I'm not sure how it would work. Since I don't think there's a function in the game's lua system that would allow
