  1. Latest IWBUMS crash on OSX

    The workaround is perfect. Thank you cyberbobjr! I've been dying to see the building cutaway improvements
  2. Game Mode: Tower defence

    Personally, I don't think the world needs anymore tower defence games/modes etc but to each their own.
  3. RELEASED: IWBUMS Build 38.15

    IWBUMS crashes when trying to launch. Playing on Mac. Copied the below from the report on Steam.
  4. Balrum

    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone here has played Balrum and if so, could share their thoughts. Whilst waiting for animations/vehicles etc, I've been looking for another isometric game to play in between making my PZ map. I've seen mixed reviews and would like to know what the PZ community thinks. Balrum looks quite interesting, it's a different setting to the games I normally enjoy (PZ, Shadowrun) and is only £10 on Steam. Thanks in advance.
  5. News for new players who think they can live a year

    I've invested almost 600 hours in the game and my record is 9 months, and that was helped by 2 injuries that forced me to stay indoors for a month on both occasions. I will get 12 months eventually.
  6. Gas 2 Go

    To me, it'd make sense if they wait until there are actual military locations on the map before introducing military vehicles. Would be a bit weird coming across a random military truck and having no idea where its come from. This, exactly. Optimizing what they have already so it runs as smooth as possible before trying to add more is the most logical step in my eyes. Keep up the good work TIS. Can't wait to see what the future holds.
  7. Some Random Ideas

    I really like the idea of a thermos. I assume once animations are in, the clothing aspect of the game will be looked into, introducing jackets and coats etc. A thermos would be another way to keep warm in the winter months, especially if you haven't been able to find warmer clothes to wear. The delivery driver/pizza guy perk would also be great. There is Pizza Whirled on the map after all and I think it'd also be an opportunity to add more variety with the cars we see. Taxis are a great shout, as Damien mentioned above.
  8. I assume we'll be able to toggle NPCs on/off in sandbox.
  9. Fixes for long-standing bugs?

    Not sure if its a bug or intended but I've noticed for ages that water bottles will lose some of their capacity over time. A full pop bottle will originally be 0.8 but after an undetermined amount of refills, will slowly drop down to 0.7-0.6 etc. I might be wrong and it is supposed to represent deterioration of the bottle, which I could understand with plastic bottles. Perhaps the bottle became crumpled and doesn't hold quite as much water, but it happens with the whiskey bottles as well, which I assume are glass.
  10. What do you guys think of Erosion as it stands?

    This exactly. Whilst I'd like to see more variations in the type of erosion we see, like the scattered garbage and makeshift barricades mentioned above, PZ is a game above all else. I'm up for realism where appropriate but having features that are only visible after in game years is not logical in my opinion. But as the leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea said above, this is where Sandbox comes into its element, as any erosion settings can be adjusted there.
  11. It'd be interesting to see an update to combat. In most zombie movies, you see them being taken down by a kick to the knee and then a stab to the head. I'd love to see something similar and other take down moves. Depending on how strong and nimble you are, a running charge to push past a group.
  12. RELEASED: IWBUMS Build 38.15

    Anyone else notice the lights are being weird? I'll go to sleep with the lights on, wake up and all the lights/lamps have turned themselves off. Also, if I go out looting and leave a light on for when I return. Come back a few ingame hours later, the lights have turned off. I'm playing on Mac but am at work at the moment so can't post specs or anything until later.
