    lol never mind on the compost, I knew that there was some reason why I was keeping all those recipe books in my home, it was in case I upgraded and needed to reread a book. Also I filled plastic containers with methanol and can't seem to do anything with them, at least not reverting them into glass containers and the glass containers where consumed in the process. This was on an older version of your mod so I don't know if it still consumes the glass containers.

    Hydrocraft is heavily dependent on foraging, so you should probably put a couple of points in the character creation screen. It's easy to get to level 10 if you do, I go out and before I have a chance to fill a bag with foraging stuff, I need to head back to read another foraging book. The mod can be a bit confusing since it changes so much, as does the vanilla game. I usually try to rush the largest water container that I can get before the shut off (I really hate having to clean water and I save my tablets for emergency use), the well or anything else I can find. All the while leveling up my farming skill by doing cabbages and leveling foraging whenever I have the time so I can get some animals to produce milk for butter. After that you just need leather to craft the apron or just luck out and get the fire suit. After that you should be set up to where you can do all the other stuff fairly easy. As for the base, I set up in west point above the hardware store and expand below after getting the washing machines from the laundromat to block any entry point. There's room for all my smelting crafting stations inside the hardware store and I use the apartment above the restaurant for my electronics and weapons storage.
  3. Personally I don't get the appeal of NPC's, the only game similar to this that I've seen NPC's done correctly has been This War of Mine. Every other game has fetch style quests that send you all over the map looking for items.

    I usually set up a shooting gallery from a second floor window since I don't have to waste beta blockers by doing this and it draws them away from my base. I use a pistol and it always hits someone since there'll be so many of them standing there.

    I think you have to find the chain while you're looting or through the medium junkyard.

    It's usually best to start with the knife or any 1 stab hit weapon since it lets you level up that skill fast. After that go with whatever sharp blade works for you. I seem to recall seeing something about spears working like the knives, only you could 1 hit zeds from farther away but it could've been some of the newer updated stuff that's coming in vanilla. What tools are you using? if you mine with the drill it should go a lot faster.

    Hydrocraft already uses a system that lets you take injuries from fire while using a forge or any other fire based crafting, you minimize the chance of being injured if you're wearing safety equipment that can be looted or crafted.

    How do I get or make agar for yeast production?

    I think windows are the main thing that you should add. Would be nice to have some sort of metal barrier that you could easily open and shut, sorta like this.
  10. I agree with this Maybe you could add an XP buff to Str or Fit gains depending on what you eat or your current weight? If you're heavy, you gain an XP buff to Str since fat helps build muscle and if you're light, you gain a buff to fitness since cardio is easier.

    If you want ideas on what other stuff would be nice to add for food, you could try WHEY which is a byproduct of cheese making. The stuff has so many uses, like in the preservation of foods. I mainly eat it as a protein powder to supplement my protein intake. That also gives me an idea for a negative trait, lactose intolerant.

    When drying fruits or vegetables to put in Ziploc bags, it uses up the water bottle variant of the lemon container. Lost a couple of whiskey bottles that way, not sure if that is intended. Have yet to try the bowls or any other container. Have yet to find the washing machines or other appliances, I'm guessing they're in the junkyards? I made a small one and filled it up, not sure what it gave me since I had so much stuff in my inventory and it only let me search it once. Also, there's no recipe for the large junkyard except to fill it. While watching nomis videos, he said something about making yeast? You can craft wood lue from Wax and Glue. Thus Wax from Bees and Glue from Zombie or Animal Bones. Do I have to read a book for this or something? because I can't see the recipe and when I right click the wax or glue on my inventory I get nothing as well, had over 20 of each and had the other items used to make glue for the making of glue from bones.

    Get the Medical Textbook and a Saw, read it, learn Gather Bones from Corpses > Cut up the corpses for bones > Use Mortar and Pestle and grind them up and make Glue. Didn't realize that wood glue meant any glue. Wonder how many recipes work this way?

    Are the wood glue requirements for the wagon wheel supposed to be that high? because 12 wood glue per wheel seems like it would require you to take trips to other places in the map like muldrough or other player made map mods. I have 11 wood glue after looting around west point, haven't hit the large warehouse on the north part of the map though.

    Nice update, can't wait to try out all the new stuff I'm still on 3.4 and when you eat potato pancakes it duplicates the frying pan which gives you a nice source of recyclable iron Is there any way to make yeast yet? main reason I haven't tried making alcohol is because yeast is a limited supply and vinegar is a priority.
