Currently I have been playing on a custom survival setting on sandbox and things have been pretty good even with multiple mods of my choice being used. I am currently at around Day 17 and my power has gone out in-game, and so far so good. The zeds are forming pretty big hordes and my game has yet to still lag or stutter at all. I used to have horrible lag and stutters before but not any more. Averaging from a solid 100fps to a constant 60fps when big hordes and action is going on. I haven't experienced any horrible bugs or glitches or for a matter of fact, any game problems that have to do with my system like any crashes or errors popping up..... and yes, I have tested mostly everything from different scenarios and settings on sandbox and they all work great. I can give out screenshots of the settings and mods if you'd like later. Even in-game performance with the FPS counter on top.
I have been enjoying the new addition of vehicles and have been able to do things I didn't do before like take long trips without worrying about wasting time running to that location, therefore moving bases, and items, are now a more viable thing for me. Since I never had the courage of moving from one base to another place. Ex. Setting a base at Riverside then moving to Muldraugh. I can escape dire and dangerous situations where as before I'd probably die. I could write much more about how many things vehicles have changed in terms of game play.
I do have some complaints and more feedback to give to the devs but I can't think of too much right now since I am at work at the time of writing this. If you want the extra feedback or want to ask me specific questions, feel free to ask them. I will give my best responses to help with the feedback gathering. Also I will be giving my PC specs once I get home.
QnA made by myself:
Q:Do you think vehicles are overpowered? Or game breaking?
A:No I firmly believe that at their current state they are not op in any way due to the fact that they will at some point break down and you can get in a situation where you're stuck and the zeds will end up breaking your windows for their tasty meal. You can even have injuries if you crash which makes driving vehicles less op. They are great at the moment and I believe they are balanced. At some point you won't be able to refuel your car since power goes out, gas goes too. So stocking up on gas is crucial.
Q: Have you ran over zombies and crashed?
A: Yes, I have gotten a few zeds killed just by ramming into them but it isn't the best way of clearing them, again, it's balanced. And yes I've had accidents.
Q: Have you experienced any game breaking vehicle bugs or glitches?
A: No, not yet atleast. They are working fine.
Q: Does it lag or stutter at all when driving around the map?
A: Not really, even though I do get the occasional lag hiccup every now and then. But only had it happen 4 times when there's a lot of trees around.
I'll reply to question instead of putting them here.
Feedback regarding car sounds: I don't like that the sounds can be heard looping, specially when sounding the horn, backing up in vans, and sometimes the engine sounds hiccup or can be heard looping. Please add more variety of crashing sounds instead of the generic glass shattering sound.
Driving: It's good where it's at.
Additional vehicle details that I would like to see:
The heater and cooler don't seem to be working, everything is fine but it seems like it either is ineffective or not working.
Please add a digital clock to the car dashboard.
Some vehicles damage textures are weird, like red paint on the glass?
Will there be visible movement/actions whenever the anims come out? Like if I open the car door or trunk, will we see that? On an old mondoid I saw a car with an open door.
Will we get more vehicles like bikes, motorcycles, buses, big trucks/commercial trucks etc..?
Ok that's it for now, this is the biggest thread I've made and I don't want to make it any bigger than this or else readers will ignore and not see this.
I just want to help the devs and contribute to the topic. Thank you.
