    CLH - Real Cars

    When I clicked on this topic, I expected something along the lines of Filibuster Rhymes' Used Car mod. This was a pleasant surprise, though. I very much like what I see.

    Indoors should have Ambient Light in the day

    Along those lines, maybe it would be possible to see the sun streaming in through the windows? Patches of sunlight on the floor, that sort of thing.

    Being able to attach a winch to your car would also be nice while also allowing you to clear the road.

    Hotwire system

    Don't military vehicles have a push-button ignition to prevent that exact situation from happening?

    Hotwire system

    I can understand burglars and mechanics knowing how to hotwire, but why would military personnel be expected to know how to hotwire a car? Is learning how to hotwire a car a part of basic training that I'm unfamiliar with?

    To be fair, canned condensed milk and powdered milk are both sold in the US, and should totally be included in the game.
  7. 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.

    Crepe Expectations

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

    Crashed Cars Mod

    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.
  13. 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.
