  1. Zombie AI

    i'd like to but I doubt it. I know html back to front, but the code that zomboid uses I'm unfamiliar with. and unfortunately real life leaves me with little time to learn a whole new programing language to change what could be a single line of code. although maybe if a modder see's this they might help. hell, if a dev see's this they might like it and add a zombies hate the light mode. never know.

    I agree, although i'd like to add to that. i'd like something from the book series the enemy (good read by the way) in which zombies are caused pain at day, so during the day they hide in buildings or anywhere outside the sun to avoid it, but during the night come out to hunt. this'd be cool cause you'd actively have to scout out houses to see if there nests during the day to loot them, but during the night would have to find shelter or hind as the zombie numbers swell massively. I think that'd be kinda cool
  3. 1.dunno if this is is possible but its a little detail that'd be kinda cool. If you smack a zombie in the head while facing a window, and the zombies killed, itd be cool to see it fall back and smash through the window. 2. it'd be kinda cool, although again dunno if it could be done, is if u plow ur car into a wall at high speeds u could fly out the windscreen and get knocked out, and then wake up later. (yeah I know cars aren't in build 38 but I dunno where else to put this so here it goes

    ok then. that's interesting. although it may not be true sociopathy, our character would need to develop an emotional detachment of some kind id imagine, lest they fall apart emotionally. and I can only speak for myself here, but with my emotional detachment I can also detach myself completely from pain. it takes a fair amount of concentration, and only works on external damage, not just being sore, but I can completely disconnect myself from any pain. although the focus required gets more difficult the greater the pain. but it essentially means that, given time to focus, I have no real pain threshold that I know of. but that's just me. and I know how difficult boredom would be to cope with, but would that be enough to really balance it out. sure, it'd be expensive, but you can just pick some traits making strength and agility worse, then exercise to bring them up, and the you have a damn near untouchable character, immune to all those pesky traits that can reduce vision and accuracy in combat.
  5. Psychopath triat

    No problem. and to be fair, in terms of the game, I can imagine our character (if in single player at least) would either become a sociopath or sink slowly into depression and loneliness. also, thanks for making me aware of sociopathy as what I may have. I couldn't be sure to be honest, as while I remember the course of events that caused it, I can scarcely recall the time before when my emotions where at a normal level. also, being unsure of this, isn't a psychopath a person with muted emotional responses? wouldn't that mean an emotional response is capable, just dulled, and would not be a leading factor in that persons decision making process? I'm uncertain, and as you say you've talked to clinically diagnosed psychopaths I wont disagree, but I feel like an emotional connection on this level would be possible, just highly difficult to maintain, and would not sway the persons judgement as severely. my little take on things. but in terms of the game, I cant imagine a psychopath trait would have any negative downs sides if they are basing it on real life. it would simply make you nearly immune to fear, loneliness, with a muted sense of pain, and a heightened sense of boredom. maybe with some it would give them moral issues to deal with, but I can only speak for myself, and I can safely say, in a PZ scenario, I would simply be enjoying myself, sure, everything is dangerous and out to get you, but I can do anything, have whatever I want, and get to smash my way through mindless zombies to get it. id be strolling down streets killing zombies with numerous dangerous homemade weapons while laughing my arse off. I simply wouldn't see a downside. and to be fair, if your uncaring about all the people that died to get to that point, would there be one? anyway, I like the idea of the trait, but I feel that if its based on any real psychopath traits it would simply be too OP for PZ.
  6. Psychopath triat

    ok, I wish to interject myself into this discussion if I may. I am a psychopath. no I am not clinically diagnosed or anything. but I am intelligent and capable of analysing my internal functionality to such a degree where it seems to be the case. this, as well as my personality fitting square within the definition, minus one blemish I will address later. I have damn near zero emotional response to the suffering or happiness of people and animals. I'm simply of the mind that if It does not affect me then I could not care less. however, if I have understood this discussion correctly, I am within the category of high functioning psychopath. I have a moral code, and do not wish to cause harm without reason, and even have a sense of honour and duty. there is a difference between me and other people who do not have any psychopathic traits though. (from what I have observed). I am quiet willing to throw such things away for necessity and personal gain. without feeling bad or even troubled. I will try to play within the rules and win by the higher system, but I don't do this for any real wish for good or compassion for others. its simply the best way to achieve what I desire with the fewest negative consequences. if you want a simple definition of what I believe a psychopath is compared to a normal person, then here it is. if someone offered me everything I desired, then handed me a gun and said all I had to do was shoot someone in the head, then I would simply grab the gun and shoot them. and I believe most people would do the same. the difference is if it was your best friend you had to shoot. many would refuse, think, or find challenge in the dilemma. I would not change my response. I would shoot. I am a cold person, hidden beneath a veneer of normality in order to adapt to society. I understand I cannot make emotional connections. I simply don't care. they feel irrelevant to me in the grand scheme. this, to me is a psychopath. there is a single blemish on this record of my cold heartedness. as you have stated, a psychopath is someone who find difficulty in forming emotional connections. but such things are not impossible, or even rare. for me my one true emotional connection however, is the women I love. yes, even with my cold heartedness, I love someone. but the difference here is my difficulty within our relationship. she is a very emotional person, which puts as at odds regularly. and at the beginning of our relationship I came off as cold and uncaring, even though I had feelings, I had no means to express them. I have over come this with time, but it still proves a challenge. she is my only real connection with this world, and for all that's in it I would not loose her. now, simply to add a bit extra on the end here, I was not born a psychopath. I was a very emotional child, and was normal most of my early growth. but my mother is very antisocial, and I spent much of my early life cooped up in my room. I craved connections and friends, to the point of being driven to depression and anxiety. I was also plagued by nightmares, and was very scared and alone. but, instead of sinking into my loneliness and cocooning myself in it like many do, I instead embraced it. I accepted the idea of always being alone. and moved on. I battled my inner fears and, one after another, I won. i decided to no longer care about the world, or the people around me who left me in my little prison, and instead of hardening my heart, i destroyed it. i took enough of my emotion to portray humanity on the surface, and let the rest go. i burned my emotions. and only now, with the help of my girlfriend, am i able to use what little i have left. but I'm still cold, calculating, and heartless, with the only patch i didn't burn down left over for her. so, there you have it. my opinion on what it is to a psychopath, and an explanation of our differences, as well as how i was made as a man made psychopath.

    wow. that's................... interesting. magic there but not there door.
  8. Story Submissions

    im not really that new. been on pz for 2 years, and on the forums for about one. I just don't post much. but I was just offering cause I love writing storys and the pz world could have some cool little storys in it.
  9. Story Submissions

    hey, would you guys ever let us submit suggestions for a story in pz. like maybe a single player story or just some small set pieces spread throughout the world. it'd be kinda cool to be able to add our own ideas for small stories to the world of pz, as well as making the world feel real and the people who died in it more alive to the player.

  11. having stuff like that would be really cool. but it'd only have serious effect if u found that in a doctors office filled with blood and bodies. but stuff like this littered through the world would really bring the world to life
  12. Soup up our vehicles

    not the compactor space. just kinda sitting on the edge on the back. but I'm sure you could just rip the button that operates the compactor out so you can use it a storage space. firetrucks would be cool too. although not as tough as other garbage trucks and other stuff, itd be damn useful to use the fire hose on zekes
  13. id like to see just more evidence of resistance against the horde. like currently we have a bunch of random gen survivor houses and stuff, which is cool. but id like to see places that would pose strategic value in the fight against the horde and have a chance for remnants of a fight to spawn there. like on main street there could be the remnants of a battle between cops and zekes. once cars are added in this could be even better done. there could be the remnants of overrun military barricades on the edge of the roads out of town. the remains of an assault of the police station. these could be cool places to grab some good firearms loot and ammo (maybe body armour if added) but are covered in zombies maybe even slightly tougher than regular after their battles. could be cool to see a few random gen fight scenes around the place to make it truly seem like a battle against the zekes properly took place here.
