    Farmoid for build 40

    Sorry for the late reply. I'm working on adapting Farmoid to the new system, as well as some other additions I've got in the works. At the latest, I'm hoping to have it ready sometime in January.
  2. Right now, it seems events are trigger with little regard to the player. About the only factor I'm aware of player's have is really just where the event happens. Being that it isn't all players at the same time (unless they are all in the same area), it's at least plausible to believe that events are even happening that aren't near us. I like this scenario more than I like the idea that the game is actively working against us. We prepare for what might happen, and die from something we missed, as opposed to preparing for what might happen, and then getting punished for...playing wisely?
  3. Nuclear fallout might make a better mod than in vanilla. It would be hard to explain how there's a reactor in a state that is heavily supported by coal mining/power and had a moratorium on nuclear facilities. Nuclear bombs/strikes would also be hard to explain, as well as late game organized military activity, as the infection has spread globally according to broadcasts in game. As far as weather events...well some of those are already in the weather test build, such as storms and blizzards. Earthquakes? The largest modern quake recorded for KY was only 5.2, and that was in 1980-something... Overall, I'm not a fan of arbitrarily destroying playerbases or killing players. Make it something we can prepare for as we see fit, or mitigate when it occurs. Having a challenge is nice, but an airstrike bombing players' bases isn't challenge, it's trolling.
  4. I'm not sure what the temperature was, but it was around midafternoon, maybe 3-4. I'd just driven back to the golf course from WP, so was in my car most of the day(car is missing front 3 windows). I was at stage 2 when I got home, so stripped all clothes off. Made two rounds of transfering loot from the car into the house, and climbed into the car to empty the seats, that's how I died.
  5. Could we get some more active ways to cool ourselves off, such as pouring water on ourselves? I just died from hyperthermia naked, well hydrated, and outside.

    Halligan Bar

    Not something I've seen in many games. I'd vote for it!
  7. In 1990's, a little over half of cars made in the States were manual, ranging from nearly all makes and models, (luxury cars started adopting automatics faster than the rest to a point).
  8. If you search the forums here, on steam, or even the workshop, you'll find some mods for farming that add quite a bit of what you're asking for.
  9. In the most likely case, I would compare the scenarios this game provides to off-road driving rather than the Indy 500. There is a difference in ability between someone that knows how to handle their vehicle over rocks/mud/etc than someone who doesn't, and that's the best analogy I can think of that would compare to driving over zombies, on or off actual roads. But the skill that that entails requires finer control over the vehicles than the game provides. Losing traction would be a nice mechanic, but driving slower should be the appropriate recourse to overcoming that, or simply better tires for driving off road.
  10. Some more metaevents would be neat, but this sounds more like you could use a peek at sandbox settings. Zombie spawning, migration, density....these are all things you can already adjust in sandbox. I'm not too keen on them getting stronger over time though. Logically, they'd be getting weaker as they continued to decay and be subjected to the elements.
  11. I think I'd prefer vehicle handling and operation to rely on vehicle parts and condition as opposed to skill. The best driver in the world isn't going to make an ignition start any faster than anyone else or give the tires a better turn radius, for some examples. Plus, it's enough that we, as players, need to learn how these vehicles handle. The more we use vehicles, the more familiar we become with them. I don't feel that we need another layer added to this.
  12. I'd love to see more skills, or the ability to add our own.
  13. For the farming aspect, if you get experience just for putting seeds in the ground, seeds need to become a lot more rare, and the xp needs to be something like .1 per seed or so. Nothing requires the player to invest in all the seeds they plant, and seeds are so plentiful, even on extremely rare settings, that letting some crops go to waste just to build farming xp is not really a penalty anyways. I think it's better that you get xp after successfully growing plants. It makes sense that your character learns what they are doing right and the reward comes after the work involved.
  14. I too would like to see more types of damage, what you suggested and more. As far as getting scratched from a zombie, perhaps it wasn't their finger nails at all, but from exposed finger bones. If this happens to you again, remember that you get at least one usable rag even when you rip up dirty clothes!
  15. I noticed that the building in this pic is missing a section of it's wall....the hard way. It's in the east end of Riverside.
  16. Split screen Co-op issues: Player 1(P1): Mouse&Keyboard Player 2(P2): Wired Xbox Controller Detection: When P1 & P2 are close to each other, P1 can only see zombies that aren't moving or P2 has detected, even when the zombie is right in front of P1. Seems to be that P2 detection radius is overriding P1's. Televisions: When P1 & P2 are close to each other, if player 1 is watching an educational show on TV, P2 will get the experience for it, even when they are not watching TV. Foraging: When P1 & P2 are not close to each other. If P2 is in an area that can be foraged, P1 gets the context menu option to forage, regardless if they are in a place that otherwise couldn't be foraged. Sound: Sounds are focused on P2, P1 cannot hear any sounds if P2 can also hear sounds. Carpentry: P2 cannot upgrade wood wall frames at all, no context menu options for it appear.
  17. Is it intentional that I'm getting .9 xp for removing parts after reading Mechanics for Beginners? Seems pretty low, considering I can get the first 2 levels in a day for cooking, foraging, etc. but it takes several days for the first Mechanics level.
  18. Local Co-op seems to be broken, I'm getting around 6000 of these errors: Mar 15, 2018 4:07:17 PM zombie.iso.IsoCell render SEVERE: null java.lang.NullPointerException at zombie.iso.IsoCell.IsDissolvedSquare(IsoCell.java:1392) at zombie.iso.IsoCell.RenderTiles(IsoCell.java:905) at zombie.iso.IsoCell.render(IsoCell.java:4899) at zombie.iso.IsoWorld.render(IsoWorld.java:2881) at zombie.gameStates.IngameState.renderframe(IngameState.java:849) at zombie.gameStates.IngameState.render(IngameState.java:1015) at zombie.gameStates.GameStateMachine.render(GameStateMachine.java:37) at zombie.GameWindow.render(GameWindow.java:732) at zombie.GameWindow.run(GameWindow.java:1309) at zombie.GameWindow.maina(GameWindow.java:1077) at zombie.gameStates.MainScreenState.main(MainScreenState.java:183)
  19. What do you guys think of a Landscaper, kind of a hybrid Farmer/Carpenter?

    Project Farmoid v0.75c

    I'm hitting the final testing phase. So far everything seems to be working as planned. I think I should be releasing this update by Friday.
  21. If you just bought the game, it is your fault for bringing an expectation that wasn't fulfilled. The store page tells you there aren't NPCs, the forums will tell you there aren't NPCs, youtube will show you there aren't NPCs... It's not the devs fault that you didn't do any looking around.
  22. At first, I thought it was a problem with my mod, but after some experimentation in the base game I've noticed this: Non-thumpable objects can be stacked on top of each other. Farming plots, plastic chairs, campfires, etc...as long as they don't share the same sprite, they can be stacked. It's not game breaking, but somewhat exploitable. Could we get a way for all world objects to check a square for other world objects. The existing options don't seem to do this on such a broad situation.
  23. I'd love to see a Jeep Wrangler added. Hard top or rag top before the animation update, removable top after.
