    As some of you know, over the past few weeks I've been working a new version that intends to work on vehicles build and handle many of the reported problems and issues reported over the past while. As well as add some new features and Improved AI!  So whats different? Let's take a look.

    Let's get the Bad News out of the way first

    Problems that still have not been fully resolved, and really cannot be without java side edits which we don't want:
    Pathfinding Freezes/Delay.  If there is a lot of stuff going on in the cell like zombies hording towards a big sound, Survivors can have a lot of delay before they calculate a path to where they are wanting to go and therefore, may appear frozen in place even though they are trying to move or run away but are waiting for the response of the Path-finding algorithm. New issue since vehicle build path-find change is that certain building windows in certain places on the map, seem to have an incorrect property set which causes a survivor to think they are able to walk through it, when obviously they cant.  Calling said survivor to you if they are stuck can get them un stuck MP is still a No
      Problems that have been fixed!:
    Random Survivor Despawn.  No more random disappearances of your loved survivors! Survivors are now saved in a map table which is saved many times per minute, which gets loaded at the start of the game.  There is no way your survivor is going to disappear until he dies and his save file is deleted by the OnDeath event. PVP System improved, No more friendly fire on group members when PVP is on. Survivors can now Sprint! Very noticeable performance / efficiency boost.  The whole mod was totally re-written.  Much more organized and clean, potential for growth is great now. Compared to Normal Survivors mod, FPS is great, no lag or stuttering (caused by this mod) Bleach Suicides. Survivors no longer consider Bleach and other poisonous "foods" as food. Bad Food Choices. Survivors no longer just grab random food but will make a more intelligent choice, choosing cooked and spoil able foods first. Endless Door Open Attempts. Survivors will no longer stand there in an infinite loop trying to open a locked door that's not gonna open. They will try entry through a window or give up trying to get in. Barricade Building Order Fixed.  Didn't work at all before, now it does. Woodbury, Military Blockade, Prison, Hilltop Spawn points fixed.  The option to spawn in these places on a new game was gone, now it is back! Enter Vehicles.  Survivors will now enter the real Vehicles from the vehicles build assuming there is a free seat, they will get in if following you when you are in said vehicle. Note Survivors will not get into vehicles from car mod anymore. Feed me I'm a Baby. Before survivors in an order state like guard or patrol would not feed themselves. Now they will eat or go find the food or water they need no mater what state they were in, as long as they are not ignoring danger to get a snack obviously. The name in the medical check menu now matches the survivors name  
    New Features:
    Survivors Name appears over their head like it does on Multiplayer Barricade Order added/fixed Doctor Order added.  A Doctor will go to and treat anyone near by that is in need of any kind of treatment, bandage changes, splints, stitches, anything!  You can only Order a group member to take the doctor role if they have at least level 3 Doctor Farming Order added. Yes you can have Survivors tend your farm for you.  But not just any survivor can do this. You must find someone with at least level 3 farming. Partial Food Eating. Survivor will only eat w/e % of the food is necessary to return to 0 Hunger rather than just eating the whole thing. A More interactive style of of well... interacting with survivors.  You cannot just shout orders or order all orders and have your orders heeded immediately like before.  These are people not your puppets after all.  To ask a survivor in your group to do something, or any survivor to do anything basically, you need to first engage them in a conversation.  By right clicking on them and "Call"ing them over to you.  Then they will come and have your attention for a short time. During that time you have many options to interact with them like before such as giving orders, giving them items, swapping weapons etc.   Now right clicking can be tedious i know so, there is a hot key "t" which will Call a near by member to you automatically. and hotkey "/" to call a Non party member from near by if any. Improved Random Survivor AI.  Before the randomly spawned survivors would just endlessly fight near by zombies, flee from zombies or try to hide.
    Now they will follow the following logic.  If they don't have weapon they will search for building to loot, going to new building by buildings looting for said weapon. Once weapon is found, they continue going from building to building but this time looking for food.  Once they find food. they will then barricade the windows and lock the doors. And remain in that building as their kind of base.  Eating and drinking what they have inside until they get killed or you come to recruit them. If they run out of food in said base and begin to starve they will set out again for a new base containing food. Recruiting Logic improved. Before a survivor just have a x chance to be willing to join you or not.  Now all survivors have a kind of relationship stat, and asking them to join you will be based on that stat, a quite low chance for successful invite by the starting level, and each time you ask them the relationship stat goes down!.  So asking and asking does not help but lowers chances.  Giving a random survivor a weapon or foods will increase relationship stat and chance of them excepting party invite! Proper Greetings. If a random Survivor sees you for the first time and it is not too dangerous to do so, they will approach you and greet you.  And will continue on their way after you do not interact with them for a short time.  Though you can of course call them back. First Aide! before survivors did not address their injuries at all.  Now they will flee and give them self first aide if required.  They don't do anything more complicated then bandaging.  Unless they are in Doctor mode. If you want to give them first aide treatment without them messing with bandages first order them to "Hold still" Finding their own Water.  Survivors, like when hungry, when thirsty will go find water near by themselves, either from an item containing water like water bottle, or from a water source like sink, tub, well or toilet. Declaring your Base Area and other Base related areas. You can now select areas with your mouse and designate them as areas in your base, like storage areas for certain items, areas to do certain kind of base work in. Options / Settings in Main menu.  Before you had to fish through the mod files and find the settings file open it with notepad editor and change the values yourself. But now you can simple return to the main menu and Super Survivors has a page on the options menu and you can set all settings with drop down boxes. Group / Base Role based AI  Survivors in or around the base, will try to keep themselves busy even if you don't tell them what to do. W/e they choose to do, they will stop and return to base after doing that thing for a reasonable amount of time. Survivors in Base do Work  Survivors in base, who are not currently doing something you the leader ordered them to do, will take up work tasks themselves based on their group role. Gun fire Cover when behind Objects if you are behind a window shooting from out a window. You will have great cover against incoming fire. Approx 75%.  Many other objects just having them between you and the shooter when you are behind them will also give you cover. The average object gives you 50% cover. Good shooting skills can slightly negate the effectiveness of cover. Translation Support  Translation Support has been added.

    Stuff that is Gone now or not yet added:
    Controlling Survivors.  No longer an option and will no longer be. As the idea of this mod is for them to be self sufficient enough for you to not need to control them Order All option. (will not re-add for already mentioned above reason. But something similar will be added ) Rules of Engagement. (Something similar will be added)  
     
    Stuff I plan on adding soon:
     
    Survivors going on Loot missions themselves (Out of cell) with amount of items they bring back dependant on various things such as time since start of world, kind of weapon / skills. You Joining groups.  You can join groups and not be the leader.  Survivor Group Leader AI will give the orders. a simple story mode with quests involving unique survivors

    You actually have the same ability to magically storm out of or through hordes as they do. It's a little know fact but, i have reported it as a bug while back. How you do it is by simply using the "Walk To" option when right clicking on the ground. Which makes your character move by path finding and not by the normal movement controls.  When in this state, zombie slow does not effect you.  This is the same way these NPCs move which is why they don't get slowed. Try it out yourself right now, if your quick with your mouse you can escape zombies grasps with it, but like the previous poster said, it doesn't meant you wont come out of there unscratched.
     
    I did mess around at one point in manually slowing their pathfind speed when attacking zombies are detected. It had a small effect but ya they still kind of power through most situations where you could not do so with using normal controls.

    Zombies often stand around in groups doing nothing until they see or hear something. But not at Night Time!
    This mod will gives Zombies nocturnal instincts that kick in once it gets dark. From 9:00pm to 6:00am Zombies Primal hunting instincts will take effect and they will be moving around a lot more, scattering in random directions and be restlessly searching ... for you.

    I’m having fun playing with this mod, and tweaking/adding things is half the fun even though I’m pretty horrible at coding. I suppose that’s what makes games with good MOD support so amazing. While I can't wait for an “NPC Test Branch”, I think this mod has really added some much needed depth to the game, and opened up a can of worms that cannot be ignored. So while waiting for “Official” NPC’s, we get to mess around with Super Survivors!

    That said, I've made a few tweaks to address a couple minor things that made Super Survivors! A little awkward (imo). I really don't know what the heck I'm doing, but calling upon some 7th grade C++ (from the 90's) I managed to not break the mod too badly while adding a few things to (imo) improve playability... I recorded a short video to help illustrate what I’m talking about…

    Following in General – I noticed that setting the [Following Distance] only affects at what point survivors start to follow when they are stopped. In other words, they do not consider [Following Distance] when it comes to stopping… This results in survivors bunching up all around the player each time you stop.

    To remedy this, I changed it to check [Following Distance] setting during the stop trigger. The result is survivors will try to maintain the distance while following, and setting it to “10” really does mean “Hang back” and “Stay back there”


     
    Moving with Larger Groups – I find that moving with larger groups is awkward still because even though they can be made to maintain a certain distance and not crowd around the player, 4 or more survivors in a group still move in a bunched up sloppy looking mob. This is hardly noticeable with one or two survivors following, but with a group, it starts to look pretty silly.

    To remedy this, I added the ability to assign a value [Follow Order], which is derived by the current [Follow Distance], to each individual survivor. This value is then added to the [Follow Distance], resulting in the possibility for each group member to have a unique following distance. This allows groups to move in staggered formation where certain members can be placed up front or designated to hang back. (+)Increasing or (-)Decreasing the [Following Distance] setting will bring the entire formation closer or further respectively.


     
    Stand Ground issue - On issuing this command, all Super Survivors attempt to occupy the same square the player is in, similar to the issue with following in general described above. This is awkward when trying to setup a quick defensive posture, because they are all knocking heads and stepping on one another’s heels... I did however want to retain the ability to command individual survivors to Stand Ground in my square, just in case I want to place them behind a counter, or in a corner...


     
    To address this, I linked [Stand Ground] to the [Following Distance] value (similar to the fire control tweak a few posts up)... If [Follow Distance] is "0", they will try to occupy the players square. If [Follow Distance] is anything other than "0", they will Stand Ground where they are at the time the order is given.  This will allow the player to lead a group into position and then issue the order basically freezing them to fight in that formation. This will reduce instances of survivors climbing all over each other when you want your squad to stop and fight...


     
    Exchange Clothing - Added the ability to exchange clothes with survivors via the interaction menu... I dunno... just seemed like a cool thing to be able to do...  Matching uniforms for your Post Apocalyptic gang... Or if a Survivor spawns with amazing skills, but is wearing a purple vest...  "Come on man what the hell are you wearing !?!!"


     
    Dope and Beer - Added menu command instructing Survivor(s) to gather ammo in specific quantities... No more waiting until they've blown through the one box of ammo they brought only to run around in a panic like rank amateurs... You can tell them to bring a crap ton of ammo in a specific quantity designated by....... [Following Distance]!!!

    Just open up a couple cases into boxes... drop it all on the floor... and tell them how many they get each. I find this much easier than passing out ammo box by box.


     
    Survivor Info Screen – Added max (bag) weight, and current (bag) weight carried… useful to prevent survivor from dumping their loot if you accidently tell them to grab too much ammo. Added Bravery Points, and Following Order as well…



     
    Un-Addressed Issue - It seems to me that on occasion, when the Survivor is "Standing Ground" further away (still visible on screen, zoomed out)... specifically between the player and Zombies.... they fail to defend themselves... and just stand there and get chomped on...  Anyone know why this is ??


     
    At anyrate, These are some of the things I did to make this Mod play the way I wanted.... which is kind of turning it into a squad based RTS of sorts... Combined with Fenris Wolf's [ORGM-Rechambered], it's a blast!!!

    you can use "é/è/à/û/ù/ï" characters. you just need to make sure the file has the right encoding.  feel free to fix it with characters including "é/è/à/û/ù/ï", then i'll add your translation

    As some of you know, over the past few weeks I've been working a new version that intends to work on vehicles build and handle many of the reported problems and issues reported over the past while. As well as add some new features and Improved AI!  So whats different? Let's take a look.

    Let's get the Bad News out of the way first

    Problems that still have not been fully resolved, and really cannot be without java side edits which we don't want:
    Pathfinding Freezes/Delay.  If there is a lot of stuff going on in the cell like zombies hording towards a big sound, Survivors can have a lot of delay before they calculate a path to where they are wanting to go and therefore, may appear frozen in place even though they are trying to move or run away but are waiting for the response of the Path-finding algorithm. New issue since vehicle build path-find change is that certain building windows in certain places on the map, seem to have an incorrect property set which causes a survivor to think they are able to walk through it, when obviously they cant.  Calling said survivor to you if they are stuck can get them un stuck MP is still a No
      Problems that have been fixed!:
    Random Survivor Despawn.  No more random disappearances of your loved survivors! Survivors are now saved in a map table which is saved many times per minute, which gets loaded at the start of the game.  There is no way your survivor is going to disappear until he dies and his save file is deleted by the OnDeath event. PVP System improved, No more friendly fire on group members when PVP is on. Survivors can now Sprint! Very noticeable performance / efficiency boost.  The whole mod was totally re-written.  Much more organized and clean, potential for growth is great now. Compared to Normal Survivors mod, FPS is great, no lag or stuttering (caused by this mod) Bleach Suicides. Survivors no longer consider Bleach and other poisonous "foods" as food. Bad Food Choices. Survivors no longer just grab random food but will make a more intelligent choice, choosing cooked and spoil able foods first. Endless Door Open Attempts. Survivors will no longer stand there in an infinite loop trying to open a locked door that's not gonna open. They will try entry through a window or give up trying to get in. Barricade Building Order Fixed.  Didn't work at all before, now it does. Woodbury, Military Blockade, Prison, Hilltop Spawn points fixed.  The option to spawn in these places on a new game was gone, now it is back! Enter Vehicles.  Survivors will now enter the real Vehicles from the vehicles build assuming there is a free seat, they will get in if following you when you are in said vehicle. Note Survivors will not get into vehicles from car mod anymore. Feed me I'm a Baby. Before survivors in an order state like guard or patrol would not feed themselves. Now they will eat or go find the food or water they need no mater what state they were in, as long as they are not ignoring danger to get a snack obviously. The name in the medical check menu now matches the survivors name  
    New Features:
    Survivors Name appears over their head like it does on Multiplayer Barricade Order added/fixed Doctor Order added.  A Doctor will go to and treat anyone near by that is in need of any kind of treatment, bandage changes, splints, stitches, anything!  You can only Order a group member to take the doctor role if they have at least level 3 Doctor Farming Order added. Yes you can have Survivors tend your farm for you.  But not just any survivor can do this. You must find someone with at least level 3 farming. Partial Food Eating. Survivor will only eat w/e % of the food is necessary to return to 0 Hunger rather than just eating the whole thing. A More interactive style of of well... interacting with survivors.  You cannot just shout orders or order all orders and have your orders heeded immediately like before.  These are people not your puppets after all.  To ask a survivor in your group to do something, or any survivor to do anything basically, you need to first engage them in a conversation.  By right clicking on them and "Call"ing them over to you.  Then they will come and have your attention for a short time. During that time you have many options to interact with them like before such as giving orders, giving them items, swapping weapons etc.   Now right clicking can be tedious i know so, there is a hot key "t" which will Call a near by member to you automatically. and hotkey "/" to call a Non party member from near by if any. Improved Random Survivor AI.  Before the randomly spawned survivors would just endlessly fight near by zombies, flee from zombies or try to hide.
    Now they will follow the following logic.  If they don't have weapon they will search for building to loot, going to new building by buildings looting for said weapon. Once weapon is found, they continue going from building to building but this time looking for food.  Once they find food. they will then barricade the windows and lock the doors. And remain in that building as their kind of base.  Eating and drinking what they have inside until they get killed or you come to recruit them. If they run out of food in said base and begin to starve they will set out again for a new base containing food. Recruiting Logic improved. Before a survivor just have a x chance to be willing to join you or not.  Now all survivors have a kind of relationship stat, and asking them to join you will be based on that stat, a quite low chance for successful invite by the starting level, and each time you ask them the relationship stat goes down!.  So asking and asking does not help but lowers chances.  Giving a random survivor a weapon or foods will increase relationship stat and chance of them excepting party invite! Proper Greetings. If a random Survivor sees you for the first time and it is not too dangerous to do so, they will approach you and greet you.  And will continue on their way after you do not interact with them for a short time.  Though you can of course call them back. First Aide! before survivors did not address their injuries at all.  Now they will flee and give them self first aide if required.  They don't do anything more complicated then bandaging.  Unless they are in Doctor mode. If you want to give them first aide treatment without them messing with bandages first order them to "Hold still" Finding their own Water.  Survivors, like when hungry, when thirsty will go find water near by themselves, either from an item containing water like water bottle, or from a water source like sink, tub, well or toilet. Declaring your Base Area and other Base related areas. You can now select areas with your mouse and designate them as areas in your base, like storage areas for certain items, areas to do certain kind of base work in. Options / Settings in Main menu.  Before you had to fish through the mod files and find the settings file open it with notepad editor and change the values yourself. But now you can simple return to the main menu and Super Survivors has a page on the options menu and you can set all settings with drop down boxes. Group / Base Role based AI  Survivors in or around the base, will try to keep themselves busy even if you don't tell them what to do. W/e they choose to do, they will stop and return to base after doing that thing for a reasonable amount of time. Survivors in Base do Work  Survivors in base, who are not currently doing something you the leader ordered them to do, will take up work tasks themselves based on their group role. Gun fire Cover when behind Objects if you are behind a window shooting from out a window. You will have great cover against incoming fire. Approx 75%.  Many other objects just having them between you and the shooter when you are behind them will also give you cover. The average object gives you 50% cover. Good shooting skills can slightly negate the effectiveness of cover. Translation Support  Translation Support has been added.

    I see you have not found anyone to do this yet.  Maybe your already aware but I just feel I should warn you that pretty much anyone could whip up a mod with a token like item.  But it would be easily duped and therefore worthless in no time.  All the work in this project would be in implementing system(s) to prevent duping / creation of these tokens in unauthorized manners. 

    I would be interested in taking on this project, it's just I would not be able to give it much priority.  If your not in a hurry to get it out asap then gimme a "call".
