  1. The cordless phones found in-game aren't mobile phones. They use the same landline network as any other house phone. I like the idea of using car phones to contact the outside world, however.
  2. The same thing I do every game, Sniperman - try to take over...rural Kentucky.

    Crepe Expectations

    With regards to the floodwaters - shouldn't the water look brown instead of blue? Floodwaters tend to look super muddy.

    Will we be able to loot the interiors as well as the trunks?

    Everything looks awesome, but is there any way to download this for those of us who don't have a Steam account?

    Pills addiction and overdosing.

    Perhaps there should be different types of painkillers in Project Zomboid: Low level painkillers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) would be extremely easy to find (homes, shops, and vehicle gloveboxes) and entirely non-addictive. Unfortunately, they would only be useful when dealing with low-level pain such as shallow cuts and scratches. Maybe your character could get random headaches (or hangovers) in the future that would also be treated with these painkillers. Opioids such as codeine and oxycodone would be the next step-up in terms of painkiller strength. These pills would be used for treating severe pain such as that associated with deeper cuts and fractures (though they'd still be ineffective against agonizing pain). They'd also be significantly harder to find than over-the-counter drugs - mostly found in clinics, pharmacies, and rarely in homes. Opioids would have the potential to be addictive - especially if taken regularly over a long period of time. Using opioids would also result in a small penalty to accuracy and coordination. Morphine would be used for treating the most agonizing wounds. Found only in hospitals (and maybe ambulances), morphine would need to be injected into the injured party using a syringe. Morphine would quickly neutralize any and all pain, but with heavy side-effects similar to those of being severely drunk - including sudden extreme tiredness and a loss of coordination and accuracy. It goes without saying that morphine usage would be extremely addictive.
  8. I absolutely agree with everything else, but wouldn't old newspapers have long disintegrated into uselessness by the time you find them? Paper doesn't hold up to the elements well.

    Hell yes! Give us the opportunity to: - Temporarily deafen ourselves when we fire a gun in enclosed environments (possibly negated with earplugs) - Temporarily blind ourselves by welding without eye protection - Risk driving a nail through our hand with low carpentry skill - Risk burning ourselves or slicing a finger open with low cooking skill - Twist our ankle when running through the woods in a blind panic We can always use more chances to injure ourselves (especially through our own stupidity) in Project Zomboid.

    Defecation v1.2

    Will we eventually be able to dig a basic pit latrine with a shovel? Maybe build an outhouse depending on our carpentry skill? Or maybe adult diapers could be added to the game. Useful for those of us who're prone to getting the crap scared out of them on a regular basis.

    Maybe certain garage doors on homes and businesses could be motorized. If you wanted to open the door without hammering it down - you'd need to find the corresponding garage door remote (or at least one that operated on the same frequency). The remotes would be found in homes, on zombies, or inside vehicles. Of course, someone with sufficient electrical skill would simply be able to cobble together their own garage door remote. And it goes without saying that motorized garage doors would be noisy as hell - so you'd have to consider whether whatever's in the garage is worth opening the door and attracting every zombie within earshot.
  12. 880. Give us the ability to clean bloodstains with more than just mops. I fail to see why sponges or even rags wouldn't work just as well. 881. Ice Cream Sundaes! We've got ice cream. We've got bowls. We've got nuts and cherries. Let us throw them all together and create an ice cream sundae to chase the post-apocalypse blues away! Some syrups (chocolate, caramel, and strawberry) and whipped cream (EDIT: and sprinkles!) wouldn't go amiss either.

    Pretty much all electronics should have some effect on indoor temperatures - especially in a small room. When I was living with my parents, I remember having to open my bedroom window in winter to deal with the heat emanating from my computer and X-Box.
  14. 875. Tooks Bear! I'm assuming the "Tooks Bear" advertised on the in-game radio is a parody of the electronic "Teddy Ruxpin" toy that was sold in the 80's and 90's. If that's the case - shouldn't we be able to find it in-game and disassemble it for Electrical EXP?

    How about some taxi stands/depots/garages? All those taxicabs have to be coming from somewhere.
