    Hydrocraft Mod

    Hey Hydro, any chance of making cardboard boxes burnable? I have piles and piles of them from all the crafting and looting I do, and the only way I have to get rid of them is to put them in a corpse inventory before I turn them into charcoal (VERY cool idea to get rid of corpses, BTW). Is it possible to add a trait to them so they add burn time to a campfire, similar to what books do? At least then, all those boxes can help me cook and purify water. Thanks!
  2. The original police station? or is that a hint there is another police station on the map now?
  3. Anyone have any spoilers on new police stations/guns stores/ammo caches? I'm assuming that the prison has an armory, but if someone could confirm, that would make the trek over there more enticing.

    Hydrocraft Mod

    I tried searching for this and couldn't find anything, so I hope this isn't a repeat. There's no option to craft a ring mold for steel rings (used in crafting a chain). I read the book and have all the required materials, but can't create the mold. Right now, the only option I have to find a chain is the "search junk" and "search for metal" actions.
  6. Ok, so I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything, but I haven't had time to look through this whole thread. Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere. I'm not sure if it's a bug, so I wanted to check if anyone else is having this problem. First off, I didn't have mods turned off, so that might be the issue right away (anyone using hydrocraft, can you confirm the below also?) EDIT: I just saw someone just posted about this about 2 hours ago. But I can confirm what Sick Boy noticed. I can build the wall frames without issue, but it seems like I can't build the wall or window panel unless I'm directly in front of it. For example, I can build a complete wall if I'm building one north (above) me, but if I build a wall frame south of me, I can't complete it without walking around to the other side of it. This is problematic if I'm building a wall on the 2nd floor or above, as there is no floor on the other side. Second, I over ate on day one, so my weight started creeping up, but I'm noticing after 3 days of staying in a state of constant hunger, I'm not losing weight. Any tiny amount of food I eat still makes me gain weight. Also, does calorie expenditure come into play at all? I ran from Cortman medical to the large warehouse and back (probably several miles) on day 2, and chopped down roughly 50 trees on days 3 and 4, but I still gained weight. My weight isn't increasing rapidly, but the fact I gained any weight at all after putting myself on an apple diet seems, odd.

    Hydrocraft is so easy to install, there's really no excuse not to do it. The gameplay extension from the mod alone is worth weeks of time (I'm going on 500 hours in-game). Literally every suggestion in this forum is in the mod, or is probably planned to be added. Want to make gunpowder? It's in the mod. Want to compost? It's in the mod. Want to make a solar farm to recharge batteries? Yep. Hunt with dogs? Beekeep? Smelt metal? Mine ore? Yes to all! Seriously, go into Steam, subscribe to Hydrocraft, wait for download to complete, and then get lost in a new world of PZ emmersion.
  8. What if we could re-read books? Right now, books disappear when you read them. What if we could read a book again, but each time you read the book, your boredom moodle gets refilled less? It would still reduce stress, but at a certain point you don't get a boredom moodle boost. There's only so many times you can read Jurassic Park before it's really boring (but hey, then you just toss it in the fire to give you a few minutes of cooking or warmth!).
  9. OMG, loving the new update! Started a new game: Looked around, all the window curtains were already closed (awesome!). Picked up a radio ("hmm, never seen one of these before, what's it do?"), turned it on. *Zombie crashes through window*. Ran around like crazy trying to find a weapon. Found a baseball bat (Hooray for sports that I dont play!). Bashed in the head the zombie. 10/10, would turn on the radio again. Wandered around a bit and found another house. Went in, and looked around. Empty, *phew*, started going through the stuff in the house like Link in a pottery store. Went to the kitchen for food, ate a dozen donuts in one sitting. Opened up a drawer, SCORE, the guy that lived here was some kind of electrical engineer or something! Grabed a backpack and took all the timers, remotes, electrical scrap and sensors. 10/10, would be a kleptomaniac again. Found another house ("What's this, boarded up? hmmm, oh well, I'll just go in"). I started to unbarricade the front door and at least 20 zombies leap out of the second floor window DIRECTLY ABOVE ME (I didn't have time to count, could have been more or less). I push away a few as I try to scramble back in terror. The house was apparently infested with them, and the barricades only seems to corral them in there after they took out whoever was in there. It took me 20 minutes to thin out their numbers, and it seemed like they would never stop coming out of the house (or dropping down on me from above). In the end, the house was pretty well stocked with food but the paydirt was the shotgun and 5 boxes of ammo (Poor guy, never got a chance to use it, the zeds got him while he was on the toilet....what a way to go). 15/10, would get ambused by 20 zombies falling on me from above again.
  10. I just had this image of someone swinging away at a bunch of zombies and them all staggering back like.
  11. As fun as people might think this is, remember that we're in a zombie apocalypse here. The unintended consequence is that you'll die more times than you ever could image as you pass out/fall unconscious around LOTS of zombies. Or...not lots of zombies, just one. Just imagine how sucky it would be to fall from the second floor accidentally (it happens), and you pass out from the pain. One zombie comes across your tender unconscious butt and makes a meal out of you. You're unconscious, so assuming you were in so much pain that you passed out, being eating isn't going to suddenly wake you up. I think a lot of people would hate this. In multiplayer, I come behind you and wack you in the head with a bat, then I walk away to let the zombies finish you off. Unless you like playing without zombies, in which case just go buy the Sims, COD, or something....
  12. I only build floating bases in SP. I rather enjoy the "I am Legend" feel of making a huge home completely by myself. As big as it is (probably around 3000+ nails at this point), it would be too big of a target.
  13. If anyone tries to get rid of my floating castle in the sky...
  14. While not in the vanilla game, if you want hay the hydrocraft mod has it. It would be hard for the devs to put every single suggestion into the game, but pretty much if you've thought it already, there's a mod out there with it.
