  1. Community Vehicle Suggestions

    I think they should add forklifts (specifically propane powered) around factories, mills, large businesses, and building sites. The Fork could flip cars onto their back (or right side up), or carry goods with a pallet attached. I say propane powered so that propane tanks become even more sought after; especially when the power craps out and barbecues become necessary. It would be relatively quiet and have a small turning radius, but would be slow, difficult to repair, and leave the character exposed to attack.
  2. Possible vehicle interiors solution

    I've been mulling this idea since the vehicles branch was released and I think I might have found a solution to having visible, interactive interiors in larger vehicles such as campers, rv's, cube trucks,semi's, etc. It's easier shown than described so I made up some screenshots: For gits and shigs; lets say this is a camper And I want to setup or lock down the vehicle I would have to park inside a highlighted area that I would select either left to right or up to down so the interior could be properly generated Now that I am parked inside the highlighted area, I would turn the vehicle off And as such, the interior is now generated, perfect for camping in the woods or for those that like a life on the road So, is this a feasible solution, or is this just wishful thinking?
  3. New Denver, BC (V2.1)

    Silverton has just been added; the last of the expansions, it lies south of New Denver. Still have to add the forage map to the map but having to define over 600 map files sounds like a nightmare so I'll get to it when I can. Also haven't added the vehicle spawn system yet as I don't know how to. And yes, I still have to remove the road blocks, just having problems loading the map files with them.
  4. Questions and Suggestions

    I compiled a bunch of suggestions I thought while playing Zomboid, and also have some questions involving upcoming features: -Dump Corpse out window, or over ledge; this seems quite vital for clearing out buildings of more than a story tall, I hate having to go up and down several flights of stairs with corpses when I could just dump them out a window and deal with them on the ground afterwards. -High enough Cooking skill = Auto timer set; This would give more insentive to increase the cooking skill so that when one puts food in the oven, an auto-time button could appear next to the timer for convenience. -If object is equipped as primary or secondary; equip with both hands without having to unequip said object, such as axes, bats, etc. -Ability to automatically put certain items back in their containers when crafting; ie: Can Opener or kitchen knife being used and automatically being put back into their corresponding container when finished. -Will vehicles have difference between manual and automatic transmissions, and will there be possitive or negative traits for driving: +Professional Driver (Less chance of injury), -Can't Drive Manual (Driving manual can cause injury), +Street Racer (Less chance to lose control), And will driving be a levelable skill like carpentry, trapping, cooking, etc. -Can modders create annoted maps for user created maps, and how would it work? -How will vehicles spawn on user created maps? What defines a driveway? Will it require defining zones like forest, deep forest, etc.? -Will we be able to siphon gasoline from vehicles? If so would it require a garden hose and empty gas can for quiet, yet long fill up, too much siphoning leading to poisoning; or a screwdriver and empty gas can to pierce the gas tank for a louder, yet quicker fill up? Or both? -Doors with windows and glass doors should be easier for zombies to break into and climb through -Full glass walls require twice the resources to barricade and cover with sheets -Cooked food should have separate temperature and burning bars; I don't feel comfortable risking burning food to get the 'better hot' buff as I'm eating. Especially if something is cooked like chicken; if chicken was fully cooked, it's still going to be very hot, even if it was no where near burning. -Some frozen food should be completely uneatable until thawed or give serious negative penalties for eating. Something about eating a frozen pizza seems, well, disgusting, let along a good way to break a tooth. -Hot food and drink should increase your temperature, while cold food and drink should lower your temperature. -Zombies climbing through broken windows should have a chance to get cut and bleed on the glass leaving a visual cue, and add the danger of climbing through yourself and getting cut and infected (With Transmission set to Blood and Saliva) unless you remove the broken glass. -Burned down buildings should have some smoke plumes coming out of them and increased temperature within for the first day or two. -Add plywood as another barricading material, similar to sheet metal, but with the banging volume of boards. Its downfall would be that it is not craft-able, and not possible to repair. -Add options in the sandbox menu for the amount of burned buildings in a map, the amount of boarded up buildings, looted buildings, etc. -Perhaps change the drop down options in the sandbox menu to a scaled bar with Minimum and Maximum sliders attached; similar to the levels scale in a image editor program. This way would allow more freedom to starting a game; with a range of settings within the min-max sliders; say one cabinet could have lots, while another has very few, as set by the sliders, the closer they are together, the closer the range between the two points would be. -Settings for world erosion expanded to: grass/vines, trees, and buildings/roads. for added sandbox support; I like world erosion, but I find trees grow too fast, and buildings exteriors disintegrate like toilet paper. -If zombies are attempting to go through a closed door that opens on the other side, one should be able to open the door, but not close it as zombies are going through, or dead blocking the doorway; a person can exploit the flow of zombies with a door by quickly opening and closing the door letting 1 or 2 through at a time which is way easier to deal with than the 40 others on the other side of a door. Lemme know whatcha think
  5. WorldEd not accepting png/bmp files

    You should be able to find how to create a vegetation map here: under the title: Creating The vegetation Map Image When you're finished, name the vegetation map in your case "Basemap2_veg.bmp" without the "" and save it in the same folder as the Basemap2.bmp image. Clicking and dragging the Basemap2.bmp image on Worlded should now work.
  6. WorldEd not accepting png/bmp files

    I believe you require a vegetation map first before you can drag your "Basemap2.bmp" into the cells
  7. Map files not loading properly

    I sent them and he showed me what was wrong; I believe I erased the wrong TMX file for Rosebery as it was trying to load Roseberymap5.TMX for the Roseberymap.TMX, them being two different animals entirely. Making Rosebery again isn't that hard, I have all the building files; just gotta drag and drop onto a new .TMX, which I've already done this morning. Frankly I see it taking no longer than a few days to get it back up to the testing and bug fix stage I left it at so long ago. Yea I had finished the map months ago, I'd just been lazy toward getting it uploaded at the time so frankly I think its the maps way of kickin my ass into gear As such, I'm going to need my old account on the forums soon to update the map when I finish Rosebery. When that's done, I'm going to start the final town expansion; Silverton.
  8. Map files not loading properly

    In the end I say fahkeet; I'll just make Rosebery again, wont take that long.
  9. Map files not loading properly

    This is the code I am using for the .TMX: I open it in worlded, it shows this: Hunky Dory so far, open a cell: Cell opens fine, looks good, open that cell in tiled: No dice. It makes no sense to me. what can I possibly be doing wrong?
  10. Map files not loading properly

    I believe that's how the files are already arranged: I could be wrong, but then again all this is making me a little dizzy. You may have to dumb it down for me, winters always play hell on my focus. This would be great, I'll have to update the the New Denver Map Forum page eventually.
  11. Driving Cars Mod

    Could we have propane powered forklifts? Obviously they wouldn't be fast, or hold a lot, but it would give more use for propane tanks
  12. Hanging maps

    Like the title says, I'd like to be able to hang town maps on the walls of my safehouse. I tend to pack light on my supply expeditions and as such bring only essentials with me (Water, Weapon, and a bag of chips) and tend to leave my map at home anyways. It would add immersion, and make it easier for more than one person to go over a map. Perhaps maps could be found on walls in some businesses, homes, etc. like finding a radio found on a counter, perhaps less common though.
  13. Map files not loading properly

    Sorry, bare with me, I have severe depression that plays me like a marionette, it can be hard to articulate my words properly, and the map not loading doesn't help. This is what it shows in Worlded after opening the rosebery.tmx without editing the .tmx in notepad++ Then When I update the .TMX to: I get only this: LIke I said, I'm not in a good way mentally, and not getting the maps to work is just not helping. About ready to just send my map files to Indie Stone and exile myself to the forest.
  14. Map files not loading properly

    This is the problem I'm dealing with; it just isn't working any or either way I attempt it. It has me a little worried now, but I'm sure it's fixable, I tend to be the glass half empty kind of person; goes hand in hand with depression, a cynical combo.
  15. Map files not loading properly

    Definitely helps, but is there any way to restore the maps without having to repaint details with the BMP brush and replace the streetlights, fire hydrants, etc.?
