  1. Map: Trumbull Valley

    Indeed. I've also thought about recreating locations from other zombie-themed games, such as Willamette, Raccoon City, Union City, Splendid, and Austin. Though some (such as Banoi, Fortune City, and Harran) would probably be far too difficult to recreate in PZ's engine.
  2. More building options

    I'd like more defenses, like plywood sheeting and concertina wire
  3. Map: Trumbull Valley

    Likewise. It's pretty addicting. Easily one of my favorites despite some flaws. Can't wait for SOD 2. Also I'm not even sure if making a Trumbull Valley map is possible given the terrain and assets, but I'm willingly to bet the buildings like the church and courthouse could be replicated pretty easily.

    If the military were firebombing vehicles you'd think we'd hear the jets and explosions, or that a stray bomb would ignite a forest fire, or we'd find charred remains, or... *sighs* EA, I know, EA.
  5. RELEASED: Vehicle Test 36

    Those pileups are an eyesore because they magically float above the road even though they don't have wheels. But I'm actually not talking about that. I'm talking about makeshift barricades that look like they were cobbled together in a hurry using whatever was available in order to slow the advance of zombie hordes. Something like this:
  6. Hydrocraft Mod

    Does the current version work with the vehicles build?
  7. RELEASED: Vehicle Test 36

    Did somebody say something about roadblocks? Because I'd love to see roadblocks, especially makeshift ones with trash and wrecked cars and shit
  8. Occupation Changes/Additions

    Also I love the idea of spawning as a convict in the prison, having to fight my way out and make my way to Rosewood in order to survive.
  9. Occupation Changes/Additions

    Excellent ideas. I think there are a lot of other occupations that could be implemented, such as: Truck Driver Factory Worker Janitor Exterminator Lawyer Pizza Deliveryman Postal Worker Store Clerk Lawyer Banker Teacher Salesperson Veterinarian
  10. Lore-Related Questions

    Well I think we all know who would be the best president to guide the country through this crisis:
  11. So I had some questions about the lore of PZ, or at least what I've been able to discern from the radio and TV broadcasts. Was wondering if whoever wrote those broadcasts would be able to clear up a few things. 1) Why isn't the President named at all? Given that this is 1993 and the in-game backlash to the President's response to the Knox Incident by Republicans, it's pretty clear that the President is supposed to be Bill Clinton. Yet none of the radio or TV broadcasts ever refer to him by name, something you rarely see in American news media. 2) According to broadcasts, the border camp supposedly set up outside Valley Station is apparently overrun at the end of the first week, at which point Louisville is infected and the outbreak abruptly goes global. With the devs saying that Louisville will be a future playable location, will you be able to spawn in it at the beginning of the game, and if so how does that make sense from a timeline standpoint? 3) How are helicopters flying over Knox County if a no-fly zone has been declared? I'm pretty sure even military helicopters are restricted from flying in no-fly zones. 4) There's mention of a photograph of a zombie that's leaked to the public, giving America the first real glimpse of the scope of the outbreak. But how the hell was that photograph taken? This is a time before digital photography. So it seems to be implying that someone snapped a photograph in the middle of Knox County, subsequently escaped Knox County, and gave the photograph to a member of the press WITHOUT the military stepping in to cover the whole thing up. I'm not saying it's impossible, just trying to figure out the sequence of events. 5) There's also mention of secret camps (especially around Fort Knox) where hazmat teams have been quarantining human survivors. Will we ever see those in-game?
  12. Veterinary Clinic / Animal Hospital

    While we're at it, could we get zombie Mitch McConnell and zombie Rand Paul in on the mix?
  13. The original Cloverfield is one of my favorite movies of all time. I won't act like it's a masterpiece of filmmaking, but it's an entertaining monster movie that was boosted by an ingenious marketing campaign that set the stage for its spiritual sequel, 10 Cloverfield Lane, which I also enjoyed (albeit not quite as much as the sequel). But I saw the third movie last night and I was just so disappointed. The whole movie feels like a mediocre sci-fi thriller with some Cloverfield fanservice thrown in. Granted, some of that fanservice was pretty good but the rest felt forced and out of place. Not to mention the story itself was, as mentioned before, dull and cliche. It makes no attempt to connect the first two movies outside of some throwaway explanation of parallel dimensions or some bullshit. I really wanted to like the movie, but even with that awesome ending, I just came away disappointed. Because I loved the original Cloverfield and its sequel, and I wanted to see where things would go from there. Now, I'm thinking maybe the franchise should probably just die. Maybe it shouldn't have been a franchise at all. I dunno. Bottom line, if you're a fan of the original Cloverfield movies, aside from some fanservice, you're gonna be disappointed. If you're not a fan, you'll probably outright hate it. But at the very least, I didn't have to pay money to see it in theaters. So there's that.

    did you fix the floating vehicle wrecks?
  15. I don't know if this is the specific forum to post map ideas, but I thought I'd do it anyway. So the map I'm suggesting is Trumbull Valley, the fictional setting in one of my favorite zombie games, State of Decay. There's a lot of potential for a PZ version of Trumbull Valley, and I honestly think not only could it be done, it could be done very well. It may be difficult in some respects, as most of the terrain color consists of yellows and browns, neither of which are prominent in PZ terrain. And there will obviously be things in the original Trumbull Valley that can't be implemented into PZ due to limitations (plane crash, mountain, etc.) But I still think it's doable. The road layout isn't too complicated, at least from what I can see. Since nearly all buildings in State of Decay are enterable, that would make creating the custom buildings a bit easier. I mean, I may have no clue what I'm talking about, since I have no experience mapping in PZ nor would I know any way of going about it (hence why this is a suggestion). I just think it's an idea with a lot of potential. I may be the only one, or I may not be. What do you think?
