    RichCoconut got a reaction from Sparrow in Snow/Rain/Fog/Ambience   
    Simply put, it would be pretty neat to see more visual weather effects/ambience other than just rain and thunder. I think these would be great and I have complied a list below of the effects.
     
     
    Snow/Blizzard
     
    Description: Basically what rain is, except it's white dots of snow falling to the ground. If the weather is more harsh, then a blizzard will occur which will have greater effects on the player.
     
    Effects on Player: Same effects already put in when it snows, if a blizzard, the player will feels these effects even more.
     
    Visual Effects: White dots of snow, if blizzard, more dense pieces of snow falling.
     
     
    Fog
     
    Description: Fog is pretty much what might occur after a thunderstorm/rain, or randomly during the seasons/months.
     
    Effects on Player: Reduced sight (Not as bad as night time, but perhaps 15-30% of that) and the chance of slight panic/anxious if your outside for too long.
     
    Visual Effects: Transparent grey visual with a slow, creepy animation.
     
    Ambience
     
    Description: Basically just more ambience to bring the place to life. Perhaps some trees could drop leaves and those said leaves could be seen blowing throughout the city. Some items such as Newspapers, Papers, various garbage, etc. should also blow in the wind. Would be nice to see some of the tall grass have an animation even if it's subtle of some weather occurring. 
     
    Let's hear some wind blowing if its thunder storming or if it's a bad storm, let's see more visuals of the wind blowing water on the roads (if it isn't too much, if so, its fine.)
     
    Effects on Player: A more immersive experience.
     
    Visual Effects: Self-explanitory. 
     
     
    I believe little touches like this can really give a heartbeat to a beautiful game such as Project Zomboid.

    RichCoconut got a reaction from grammarsalad in Using a instrument to play music + fight, maybe craft   
    To put simply, I think it would be pretty cool to have an acoustic guitar or banjo where if equipped, you can use the numbers 1-6 to play each note. Can start in Standard tuning then add the feature to change the tuning. It would play a sound clip of that note when pressed. Chords can be held with 2 or more buttons.
     
    Just a random thought. Add something to do while the night passes by. If a window is open, zombies might be able to hear the said instruments.

    You need both the workshop ID (for the client to automatically download the mod and for the server to download/install the mod) and the mod loading ID to indicate which mod the server should load.

    RichCoconut reacted to Sykriss in Combining maps?   
    Is there any method to combine multiple maps into one? I was inspired by this when I noticed that on pz-maps there's a map called "Alexandria" under savegame maps that seems to have Bedford Falls, New Denver, and the vanilla map combined into one. This is massively appealing to me and it would be awesome if someone could either link me to that Alexandria map or explain what it would take to merge multiple maps into one. Thanks!

    They're all roughly the same to me, so probably the one that weighs the least, which is likely the M4.  Later on, though, I imagine there are some guns that are going to be more prone to malfunction, and/or need to be cleaned more often.

    You do not need to anything that you don't want to, but following my advice above would accomplish your goal of setting up the server, no matter how unsatisfactory a user experience it is not to have a specific tool. People have been dealing with this for over a year with only mild complaint and without taking it personally when someone explains how to do it, while we wait.

    Our entire forum is for discussion. there are general discussion boards, suggestion boards and all kinds of different threads to get involved in and don't be afraid to post a thread of your own if you can't find a certain discussion topic already started. It's pretty organized over there and we do supply a type of mod that no other server does... currency.
    From what I understand; Hydrocraft includes a wealth of guns, and radios will (hopefully) be implemented in build 33. I am not sure if they will run the same way as the mods may have them worked out, or if the devs will copy/paste the best mod version's coding into the game. But I'm with you on that one. Some radios will be a HUUUGE game changer. We have a few threads on our forums that discuss suggested mods for the server as wellas some ideas for expanding on current limitations.
    I can't say I'm sure where everyone's hate is coming from for hydrocraft. I guess folks are just inclined to side with the underdogs, but seriously check it out. I tried it on SP and was AMAZED with the extra things that add so many levels of realism.

    If it doesn't work with EA V31.13 you've installed it wrong.

    RichCoconut reacted to Rathlord in Commonly Suggested Suggestions   
    Heya guys, I'm going to throw together a quick list of things that are commonly suggested and whether they've been mentioned by devs as tentative or no's. I'm going to be basing this off of a few threads in the old forum and the top of my head. If I miss any please mention it in the thread and I'll add it to the list.
     
    Key
    [n] - This is a confirmed 'No' from the development team. Please don't waste your time or ours reposting unless there's something relevant and new about it
    [y] - This is confirmed 'Yes' from the development team. This is something the definitely want to see in the game, but this does not constitute a guarantee. Please don't post about it unless you have something new or relevant to add.
    [m] - This is a 'maybe' from the dev team. It's something they've mentioned that they were interested in but we still don't know if it's a confirmed feature. Please don't post about it unless you have something new or relevant to add.
    Everything else - everything not marked would be something overwhelmingly decided by the community or that's self-evident. If you feel it needs discussion bring it up here or in a thread if there's not already one out there.
     
    The Big No's!
    These are a list of things that are either vehemently opposed by the majority of the community, confirmed "no's" by the dev team, or impossible within the game as it is. I'm going to try to make this completely unbiased, but if you disagree with anything posted feel free to mention it. The most important ones are highlighted in red. If you take nothing else from this thread, please pay attention to these.

    Been on TIS forum since we moved to this new forum and I have only 50 posts. This is my third in this server thread. Also I was Wilson from the screenshot Rich posted above.
     
        For about a week or more, IWBUMS allowing, Rich and his fellow admins have been assaulting us with very exciting challenges. Puzzle buildings full of traps and deadly wrong turns, protect the survivor/structure missions with insane zombies waves. Recently pitting us against what became a real time two and a half hour battle for survival. We pleaded server wide for help (we were doomed) and even got a few KOS bandits to help out. I was as shell shocked and wearied as my character. I don't think anyone who participated could say much negative about the experience (other than the perma death nature of PZ, the heartbreak of a good character dead). I only wish I had the software/know how to have made some video. The ingame narratives have been incredible.
     
        If you are looking for a server, nothing against any other (played many and never had a truly bad experience), this place is a blast. And please participate in one of these events, for your sake. It is quite challenging and creates an original play through. Just be prepared to die many times in pursuit of victory and glory.
     
        Zeek, Rich, Hobbes, Aniketos, Pot of Water, thank you for a great server. All the players, thank you for making these raids and events an awesome experience. All of you at Indie Stone, thank you for working tirelessly to create a game world I can have this much fun and variety in.
