    One tile size

    Thank you Bughunter! I got a screen shot of the 64 bit version. of the doubled size picture and the straight line between each corner was 90 pixel. Just calculated the hypotenuse and it was 90.50966... I just wonder where the half pixel goes o o... oh well Big thx again!

    One tile size

    I was asking myself the question on the size of 1 tile in the game at the moment. I know that before 1 tile was 32 pixel. I took it from a wooden wall in the tile file found in the map editor thing. But since its prior to the visual update in the 33 build. well its not accurate and I don't feel like doing thing twice IF it can be avoided. It would be really appreciate to know the right size. I need it for a mod... 7 logs wall. It will look like a wooden dam to maintain the zed flood where its suppose to be... Out of you're base ^^. Thank you!
  3. I would like to ask if there would be a possibility to get a more detailed forest environment. The thing that I want to bring up to in particular are trees. 1.Tree grow to fast with the erosion getting the full 2 log on a 3 week of waiting is sadly impossible. (If its intended well my bad =o ) 2. Bigger tree could be place around the forest or even closer to make a roof above you,re head that blocks suns ray! But not water sorry... it does the opposite really, It rain more heavily inside the wood. 3.Dead tree. 4.Level of dryness of the wood. Green: Unable to burn or construct with. Half Greenie: 5. Being able to walk freely under big tree. If its a leaf tree and not a needle tree(pine like tree) ( i would gladly name them accordingly but english is not my native tongue and it seems the traduction word for a word would come to this..) 6.This is not something that would need to be added but would certainly add benefit to the wood. KENTUCKY wild life...They should'nt require any special skill to distinguish since they are native tree! I would gladdly look into more of hem but well I rather wait and see if it picks anyone attention before jumping knee deep ^^. Tree Paw Paw. The inner bark can make rope and gives mango like fruit from august to october. Tree Wild Cherry(black cherry). The inner bark can be used has sedative or cough remedy from august to october. American Plum. Edible shiny red fruit can be dried to make fruit leather O o from august to october. Flowering Dogwood. Edible red /yellow pink blush fruit that taste bad! from august to october. Persimmon tree. Edible red fruit that need some preparation for it to taste good. There is also some local recipe going with them could be worth a look XP. 7.Small wild plant used has erosion. 8.If it was to be added somewhere in the game then I will gladly wait. Otherwise... how can I mod the map to add these parameters to the ''Forest'' in the original map or any modded city so to speak??? If none has the answer no worries I'll look into it. But I would gladly look accept any help ^^;. Good Day!
  4. Well what I would want with it is more of a stage building with add on. 1.Building 4 log wall 2.Adding log support 3.Adding rock and concrete support 4.Modifying in place log wall by changing what's holding it. 2-3 in any order. Witch might require the new way to construct things. Since it should only had more HP on 1 side not both lol. But graphics are graphics so I'm gonna start on that. Unless its better I wait for the next release. Has for the ''realistic'' part. Meh i feel like there's a lot of thing to had before wanting to implement all the tool require for construction period. Because.... It should take an hour or 2 or3 ... without any power tool for it to be strong enough. Measuring tool that have the right ledge I know you can take rope, tree branch an about anything with a length, But you're character does not know that. Leveling tool to make it look straight. Sharpening the edge of the log with an Axe to make it easier to enter the hole you just made praying that there is not any rock blocking its path under = =;;;;;;;;;;; Ladder to be high enough to hammer it down in the ground(sledgehammer). Arranging the ripped cloth to make the higher point sturdier or something. Its just cloths it could just rip in shred instead of working and needing more in the process. If you'd use rope you'd need a sturdy knife to cut it Swinging an axe above you're head to cut the rope is not good and require time... A saw would simply jam unless its a hand saw(smaller tooth). Plier if its iron or barbed wire. Anything that is not tighly fit could make it all go down way more easily with bad luck. Also if there would be a way to climb over somewhere sometime in the game. You would also need to sharpen the edge that is out to make sure that anything stupid that try to cross it would just impale itself on. And with any of those step there is a chance of cutting or crushing you're self even more without the require tool. Slightly or big 1. Consuming stamina a lot, Burning up you're food you ingested, taking down a notch you're water level and affecting you're tiredness meter! Almost forgot! It makes a lot of noise to make let's ring any zombie in a 100 meter radius 300 foot I think O o. I don't thing I would like it though... that's game time consuming in game for 4 logs wall and you'd need around 50 to 100 of them to make a descent space in you're shack. Now now come and think about the wood... The bigger the sturdier it is right and there is no tree the same size shape height has the one next to it. if its to dry Its barely workable. If its rotten it can barely hold itself together... Wood rots with rain and time. Need roof. Need treated wood. That's oil for ya. Cauldron perhaps. It sure won't be that fancy industrial stuff ^^; It could go on and on...
  5. The only way I would see it to be logical to have more health. Is an all new model together. 1 that requires a shovel(to make a hole and bury after), hammer/axe/sledehammer/ (for time duration of pounding the 4 spiked log it in the ground) and should require 3 more log that would enhance the simple 4 log wall to a 7 supported wall log. And 4 nail-screw for the Support holder Also toughness should come from witch material you use to tie the log together, clothing,Hemp rope, Fishing wire ,iron wire. Could also add weight at the bottom of the wall such has rocks that you can find while searching =o P.S. I know the image is not really beautiful but its self explanatory. And I could do the graphic if the need arise XP. But I'm not really good with the coding part sorry...
  6. Since you speak about ice and power out ... Well i just had to rethink of what people where doing back then with no electricity. Its not miraculous but hey! Its better then nothing. They kept big ass ice cube under straw in a dark place to keep it during the ''heat season'' Anyway someone wrote about it xD The thing goes by the name ICE BOXES. http://frozen61.tripod.com/id5.html
