    - slowed down body heat generation increase/decrease rates
    - added advanced view and applied text changes on thermal tab
    - fixed temperature offsets of limbs to be more pronounced
    - changed a few internal values making fighting cold to be harder based on test feedback also including: the dropping of core temperature now affects total possible heat generated and the body ability to keep fighting cold
    - increased energy/fluid consumption rates a little bit when overheating/undercooling
    - added small increase in energy consumption when generating lots of heat.
    - changed skin temperature moves faster when its moving back to favorable levels, so it doesnt take that long to warm up again.
    - fixed bug that during heat made skin too hot too fast based on insulation
    - fixed a few clothing pieces insulation
    - changed hypothermia stage 2 kicking in at core 35, instead of 33

    Increased thread spawn rate in kitchen.
    Mechanics window tooltips now display battery charge, amount of fuel in gas tank, amount of air in tires.
    Improved how day/night cycle zombies sandbox option works: when active, they get your sandbox options. When inactive, they're really slow & weak, but they can still walk/attack.

    FIXES

    - Possibly fixed walking-in-place zombies.
    - Fixed hotbar not updating when replacing a holster with a double holster or vice-versa.
    - Fixed custom weights for food and crafted radios not being saved.
    - Fixed "Clear Ashes" not being available.
    - Allow Shovel/Shovel2/SnowShovel/HandShovel to be used to clear ashes.
    - Fixed lua error in DebugChunkState displaying tables in modData.
    - Fixed the bug "vehicles sometimes disappear until you reload the game".
    - Fixed the player getting stuck when climbing a sheetrope and the way is blocked at the top. The player will automatically climb back down.
    - Fixed overlapping garage door and wall in cell 37,22.
    - Fixed Tailoring skill books disappearing after being read.
    - Fixed grime/overlays/etc from burned tiles.

    - Fixed lua error when crafting when items need to be transferred to main inventory. (Packing nails into multiple boxes).
    - Fixed not being able to wear items on the head with coveralls (FullSuit and FullSuitHead locations were swapped). This should fix welding masks disappearing when zombies die, if they were wearing coveralls.

    - Fixed hitting trees through walls.

    Man, this insulation stuff is painfully unrealistic and punishing. For reference, I live in a Canadian mountain town on Lake Superior - I know Northwestern Ontario cold. Today is a warmer day, we we were at -3 for our high, and I was fine wearing 1 down jacket over my shirt - not sweater - and usually replace the former with a hoodie when I leave work for the day. The fact that I have to wear 4 layers of clothing to survive spring in Kentucky is both absolutely hilarious and terrifying.
     
    I look forward to your next patch - hopefully this gets heavily rebalanced. Other than that, there is a ton of great detail here. I'm surprised with how much potential this system has.

    Hey everyone, here’s a quick update on where we are with the current IWBUMS beta process. We do hope you’re well, and wish all Americans a happy Thanksgiving today – even if many of the PZ team only really know of it via films and soft focus television comedies from the 1990s.
    41.21 PATCH
    We patched the current IWBUMS beta on Tuesday, which was a version that contained:
    Visible bandages A new ‘inspect clothing’ UI and improved tailoring Randomized vehicle events to come across on the highways of the Knox Event Improved Studio and Kingsmouth challenges Insulation/temperature system changes Loads of balance and bug squashes Annoyingly this patch also came with its own measure of bugs, and we had to spend a day hotfixing players who couldn’t survive through winter due to INTENSE SUFFERING and also a savegame issue.
    These issues should now be fixed, so if you’re still having problems with them then please double-check your system has the very latest version of the IWBUMS beta by verifying files or reinstalling. If problems remain then please let us know on the forums.
    UP NEXT
    We’re slightly behind schedule in our new weekly patch release schedule, what with the above issues, so the next patch probably won’t be quite as bumper as recent ones have been.
    However it should contain the return of rusty cars, more and improved vehicle events on the roads and a QOL looting improvement that displays all containers in a 3×3 area around the player – which should also make corpse looting a lot less fiddly.
    EP has also, meanwhile, been experimenting with a function that provides  a radial menu for hot bar slots – that then lets you choose an item to equip in that slot.
    UP SOON
    Regular readers will recall that last week we were debating whether to put Zac’s work on the improved character fidelity and optimization into cold storage – which would then allow us to throw him into the mix on work on the much-awaited (but still not at all imminent, we’re afraid) Build 41 MP.
    However, in the past week he’s slayed a whole bunch of rendering demons and the whole thing is looking a lot more positive. Here’s a video from his branch showing where he’s at right now. He’s really made some headway in the past week, and the seams and fuzz that were cropping up are increasingly in check.
    Another big ticket item that’s on our list for the full version 41 release, meanwhile, are Yuri’s improved fire visuals. Working with assets made for us by a lovely effects specialist called Dan, this is the current look we have for in-game fire.
    PLEASE remember this is still work in progress – and currently not tied to the actual PZ fire and firespread system.
    Yuri is currently optimizing the fire for low-end systems, and is also implementing his fire effects in script, which will allow the community to easily upgrade and create their own visual effects.
    That’s about it for now, but many thanks for all the enthusiasm we’re still (still!) seeing for Build 41. The last month has seen the highest average player count we’ve ever had for PZ – beating the full vehicles release by quite some way, and the animations build isn’t even fully released yet!
    It’s great to see that people are digging it, and exciting to think what the MP scene and modding potential will be once it’s fully out in the open.

    Hello everyone! Lazy Thursdoid this week while we can get away with it, IWBUMs are out and for the most part everyone seems to be really happy with how its going. A few much more isolated issues to resolve on low end PCs and Mac, Linux builds. It sucks and we promise we’re working on them, if there’s anyone out there who feels they haven’t been responded to about their issue, chances are we’re already aware and are working on solving it or getting hold of a similar spec ourselves to debug on. Otherwise, people seem to be responding very positively, and player counts, reviews and everything seem to be very active. Exciting times!
    We released 5th patch to IWBUMs yesterday, and boy was everyone really happy to see the increased soap spawns! We seem to have licked all the specific performance related issues, and now only need to improve general performance with skeleton sharing between zombies in hordes. This will happen during IWBUMs at some stage, but is a bigger task than some others so we’ll see at what point it does drop in.
    We feel our naming scheme for the playstyles has been a lot more successful than previous attempts, the hotbar system has been going down a storm. We’ll carry on polishing, balancing and fixing until we’re finally ready to start testing the multiplayer code (no timescale on this, it really does depend on a lot of factors) and until then… enjoy!

    Ok, few things from me:
    The new build is great, thanks a lot guys.
     
    Now few things that im worried about:
     
    1) dont change ballance so fast. What i see here and at steam is that a lot of guys complain about difficulty after few days of IWBUMS... Play a bit more, try to adapt. Dont whine at forum becaouse you died 4 times in a row. Look at some youtubers, they are dooing just fine at survivor (apocalypse) mode. Its not 100% ballance issues, its you not adapting to the new game.
     
    2) I have mixed feeling about new game modes (brawler , survivor etc). Imo they will spread out, small, multiplayer community. I know that some players may have problems with new fighting mechanics. But instead of creating many "game modes" just utilize that skill system. Multi hit etc is cool, just merge that to fighting skill and/or strenght.
    You want to kill zombies - build brawler character and dont sellect brawler mode. That will also add a lot of deepth to multiplayer system and NPCs.

    Should fix a lot of 'crash on loading into game' issues!
     
    - Increased memory allocation for 64bit zomboid that could potentially avoid crashes on some systems loading into game.
    - Fixed shader issues with clothing overlays and holes which affect some GPUs (big source of hangs/crashes on game load / leaving spawn house and probably the same cause of some mac issues reported)
    - Added options for transparency / visibility of iso cursor for combat.
    - Render thread will now throw out better error messages for diagnosing future problems.
    - Fixed zombies playing their death sound sometimes when stabbed (but not jaw-stabbed).
     This happened when bCloseKill=true but CriticalHit=false.
    - A zombie dies as soon as it is jaw-stabbed, not after falling to the ground.
     The KnifeDeath animation is played in the falldown state, not the hitreaction state.
     The KnifeDeath hitreaction doesn't happen now because the zombie is dead before falling.
    - Fixed zombie number issue on Survival
    - Fixed pathfinding failing when moving on the same square when that square is blocked in all directions.
     This worked before luautils.walkAdj() was changed to not call AdjacentFreeTileFinder.isTileOrAdjacent().

    Lots of fixes in this one. Though big apologies to some of the crash people out there. We're really working at trying to solve your issues, and have tried a few things, but with no errors or crash traces being reported by the build, they are somewhat a mystery and hard to puzzle out. We likely haven't fixed everyone's issues, but we'll get to the bottom of it eventually and you're not being forgotten.
     
    NEW
    Renamed playstyles for clarity and to emphasise dev intent for how they should be played. Brawler becomes Survivor, Survivor becomes Apocalypse.

     - Fixed missing trait icons when using the Turkish locale. (Prone to Illness, Illiterate, etc).  Anything with a capital I.
    - Double-clicking tutorial and playstyle labels in the new-game screen proceeds to the next screen.
    - Fixed issues attacking while in a vehicle (infinite ammo, can't shove).

    Overall- love it!
    Observations and bugs after playing through a day (disclaimer- this on MacOS, survivor):
    1. Pants, jackets- only pants and shorts work, textures break on others and all attempted jackets (limbs turn to single hue of green, yellow, red, or blue)
    2. Movement feels unresponsive- felt a need for faster initial acceleration, especially when accelerating at new angle of rotation, when the circle-dance also comes into play and really slows you down.
    3. Zeds turn invisible on defeat. Still able to view inventories.
    4. Zeds have invisible limbs, or monochrome limbs/faces (probably because they are wearing the gear mentioned above)
    5. When sneaking, E opens doors but not windows. Is this new?
    6. Equipped items- have no "drop" option (unequip only). Is this new? Unequip + drop feels unnecessary.
    7. Cursor- Combat targeting seems out of place. Pulling grass, opening windows appears to operate at the point of the cursor rather the plane below the cursor. Seems odd to have to internalize different planes for different actions (referring to the targeting reticle that appears when sneaking/aiming). This may have always been the case, but with the importance of head stomping, it now seems problematic.
    8. Lights- no effect indoors? Played around with a few settings, but nothing seemed to make a difference.
    9. Blood accumulating from zed smashing appeared greeny blue on player skin and clothes. (Or maybe that's just what zed blood looks like! Nothing wrong with that!)
    10. Head stomp- LOVE it. Really makes luring away zeds one by one a much quicker process- a welcome relief given the new gratifyingly dangerous threat posed by anything more than 2 zeds.
     
    Lots of good things to say but that list is too long so... gerd jerb.

    NEW
    Simulated weather and climate system - recreating true-to-life weather patterns through 365 days of the year New shaders for times of day and seasonal effects Storms that move over the map Fog and mist that clears during the day Rain and snow now look like they hit the ground. Rain then disappears, and snow fades out. Improved snow and snow effects. New isoRegions system to detect an enclosed area - player-made or dev-created - to keep weather effects on the outside New player character temperature system New Chatbox. Primary features include separate chat streams (safehouse, local, global, etc), customizable chat and more intuitive usage and commands. It's hopefully a lot more convenient now. New system to convert objects placed by mappers so they can be used as functional game objects. This covers items like barricades, campfires, rain barrels, traps, composters, crops etc. New functionalities for the PZ sound system. Formerly modders couldn't override sounds in PZ FMOD soundbanks, so when players find certain sounds are too loud or annoying (heartbeat, zombie alert, flies, level up noise etc) it was hard to raise/lower them independently. Details about all the game sounds now go into media/scripts/sounds.txt. A new in-game UI allows users change the volume of any sound they feel is too oppressive. Winter is Coming game mode now works with new climate system. Seasons still impact on this mode - 'Summer' highest temperature is 0 degrees centigrade, and winters may drop to -30. After 3 full days a powerful weather period is generated, that will always feature a blizzard. New MP Admin UI added: an Items list viewer in the admin panel. It can be used to quickly search through, and spawn, items. New C++ version of ZombiePopulationManager. This system is what governs the placement and movement of zombies when they’re not directly on your screen, and this updated version should be an optimization for SP and MP – hopefully helping out lower spec machines and busy servers. Reflective windows on vehicles Skybox generation for vehicle reflective windows. This takes into account: the time of day, the Global illumination color, fog, cloudiness, precipitation intensity, wind direction, wind speed and the temperature of the ambient air (as in winter the clouds are lower than the ground) Added 'sway' wind sprite effects for trees and vegetation that increases/decreases with wind speeds(default on, can be toggled off in options)  Added 'shake' sprite effects for hits on doors, chops on trees and zeds/players walking through vegetation. Added new Spiffo survival guide entries about weather. Added new clothes: Long shorts, Jacket, Padded Pants, Padded Jacket Thunder sound now plays to all players when an admin bans a player banned, a thunder rumble is heard when one is kicked. Game now saves the last five console logs in a /logs/ zip so users can easily upload errors even after they've restarted a game Added more checks to online usernames. They now must be three characters long, and not contain any of the following character: ; . ' ? \ Added new server option AllowNonAsciiUsername (default false). This can be set to true to allow the use of non-ascii characters in the username, such as the Cyrillic alphabet etc..) Game now checks username in lowercase when accessing the database. So if your name is BLARG, but you type BLaRG you will still join. Commands can now be temporaly disabled with DisabledCommand annotation. Disabled connections, grantadmin, removeadmin, servermessage and thunder commands. Help also disabled for these commands by annotation Added climate and weather MP admin panels. Many climate values can be now be ticked to override what's happening on the map. Values set by admin will override any values set by climate system, weather and mods. System also shows current weather information, and gives options to stop it. Added BloodSplatLifespanDays server option to remove old blood-splats. Added a 'Revert screen settings' feature after 20 seconds for when newly selected resolution settings are incompatible. Added a way to edit admin powers (invisible, godmod, no clip, unlimited carry, various cheat...) in the MP admin panel. Added in-game Sandbox options editor for server admins - this will allow server admins to change in-game settings that do not require a restart. Updated community translations. Also updated translations with the display names to aid the process. Added a way for outside signs to have light (check room under it if they have electricity). Added lights to neon signs. Added buttons to server-disconnect screen to return to Main Menu or Quit to Desktop. Added separate Shadow extents from vehicle extents to allow for better shadows Updated fonts to bold to aid readability. Added a way to edit Admin powers (invisible, godmode, no clip, unlimited carry etc) in the in-game admin panel Added back the Lowest lighting-quality display option. [Lowest lighting quality now doesn't use the circle-stencil and doesn't draw a second pass of floor shading, so it is a help to low-spec users.] Added Display option to disable the new roof-hiding feature for low-spec users. Shaders now used to draw wall + stencil + lighting in a single pass. Difficult to tell how much FPS boost this results in, but could help. Client now displays the first lua or script file that does not match one on the server to aid user diagnosis of things going wrong with MP Updated menu screen with vertical rather than horizontal options - due to problems with taskbar in latest Windows Updates. Added a UI to display status and error messages when attempting to connect to a server. Vehicle dashboard now displays headlight icon in red if headlights are switched on but aren't working. Added tooltip for Light Fire when Notched Plank is in inventory but not the other item required for lighting a fire. Added Loot All and Transfer All commands to the inventory context menu when using a controller.  
    BALANCE
     
    Reduced the the impact of loot modifier sandbox option on easier difficulty. Increased the height of tooltip progressbars. Added being able to rest/sleep on picnic table (considered as a bad bed.) Added missing Raspberry Shortbread, CookieChocolateChip" & Candycane items to the loot table. Added a way to dismantle car wrecks (burnt car) with a propane torch & a welding mask. Gathered metal material will depend on your metalwork skill. Added missing nutrition values to medicinal herbs and condiments. Disabled zombies sprinters in MP (if speed is set to Sprinter, it'll be set back to Fast Shamblers) Lowered the alarm clocks a and digital watch wake up distance. Added "Very Low" choice to CarSpawnRate Sandbox option. Increased VOIP range  (fade and falloff) Bowls of soup now affect thirst. Wood barricades require two nails. Previously in SP 2 nails would be used, while in MP only 1 would be used. Changed in-vehicle visibility cone for when player drives through weather effects. Cone now extends based on darkness value. Player can now sleep in a car that has its engine running. Added Packaged=TRUE to Remoulade so nutrition info is visible. Renamed Disinfect Bandage recipes to Dinsinfect Rag for Ripped Sheets. Increased the distance zombies spawn in newly-seen rooms when the player is in the same building. This is to fix zombies spawning right in front of (or sometimes around) the player in the large open rooms in the Mall. Renamed Metal Tube into Metal Pipe. Removed Pipe (plastic one) from recipes/dropping table, and now use Metal Pipe instead. Improved the appearance of crafting tooltips. Frozen food no longer allowed as the primary ingredient in evolved recipes. Can no longer use rotten bread slices when cooking level is less than 7. Added several missing vehicles zones (McCoy, Fossoil) & improved gas station vehicles spawning. Car-battery charger is now placed on the ground and interacted with using a context menu. Transferring water from an object to an inventory item now requires equipping that item. The amount of water to transfer is calculated in start() instead of when the action is queued.  Repair Engine and Take Engine Parts now show progress bars and flash Success/Failure. Drunk moodle now has an impact on driver steering input Updated map to improve zombie density in some farmland and rural areas.  Changed First Week in One Week Later and adjusted settings to make sure that new players aren't given too easy a ride. You can now improve wooden door frames as you would walls. (This won't work on previously built frames though). Players can now be harmed when hit by a car. DamageToPlayerFromHitByACar sandbox option added Added chevrons on character screen next to the weight to indicate if weight is increasing or decreasing. All vehicle doors may be locked/unlocked from inside without requiring a key. Single tile doors can now be blocked from opening/closing by obstacles - as it is with double doors. Piped items (sinks, toilets, baths..) now require a wrench to be moved. A moveable item requiring no skill now have a 25% chance of breaking instead of 75%. After placing a water piped item you now need to plumb it back before being able to use it (require a wrench & a building or fully enclosed player built house). Weather now impacts on chances of starting the car (specially on low quality engine, the colder, the harder is to start).  
    MODDING
     
    LoadVehicleModel lua function and re-calc spawn chance added to aid players who want to mod in new/individual cars. Mapper-placed generators are now functional objects when first loaded. Changed spawnchance for vehicle type definition from an Int to a Float. Added mod options for climatemanager

    Hey all, quickfire ‘what we’re up to’ blog today.
    We had an impromptu Community Megatest last night. It was really useful in terms of spotlighting a few things we need to iron out before we can release Build 40: namely some potential lag caused by extreme weather that we’re digging into, a ‘joining server’ error that some experienced and the ‘dead zombie leaves a weird graphical glitch’ issue which, admittedly, we already knew about.
    Internal testers have also flagged a few issues that *might* be an issue on Linux and Mac, so if you’re on those platforms and the new IWBUMS beta isn’t behaving then please let us know.
    Our plan is to patch these issues up over the coming days and then have another Megatest next week.
    As mentioned, we’ve just released IWBUMS beta version 40.21. Among other things this includes:
    Skybox generation for vehicle reflective windows. To give a better indication of what the weather and climate systems are doing, car window reflections now take into account: the time of day, the Global illumination colour, fog, cloudiness, precipitation intensity, wind direction, wind speed and the temperature of the ambient air (as in winter the clouds are lower than the ground) Please note that the overall effect of this might be toned down a little, and that a primary motivation for this is also as it being a first step towards reflective-looking water – seeing as bodies of water for a long time have been one of the ugliest things in the game. (This will be a Build 41 or 41+ thing though)

    An ugly thing that we have addressed in the latest 40.21 IWBUMS, however, is more natural looking snow on the ground. Previously snow would appear in blocky tiles, but now Turbo has made it look far more natural when it gathers and melts away.
    Other new stuff added in the new beta version: temperature now has an impact on the chances of starting a car in super-cold temperatures (especially on low quality engines), less fiddly chat/admin options and some tweaks to how MP usernames work. As discussed last week, we’re biting the bullet in terms of Build 41 being the animation build – so that TEA aren’t playing endless catch-up with the main game. As well as preparations for the big switcheroo the guys at TEA have also been fixing issues like zombie outfits randomising and disappearing, renderer crashes and sorting out z-ordering issues so that bags are now drawn correctly.

    This week’s featured image from our tester Sasha, who’s awesome. A general list of stuff added to PZ, and vids of features being worked on, is kept here – so you don’t have to plough through endless dev blogs for info. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send blogs like this and patch notes direct to your mailbox. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too.

    NEW
    Skybox generation for vehicle reflective windows. This takes into account: the time of day, the Global illumination color, fog, cloudiness, precipitation intensity, wind direction, wind speed and the temperature of the ambient air (as in winter the clouds are lower than the ground) Added more natural looking snow on the ground: Added more checks to online usernames. They now must be three characters long, and not contain any of the following character: ; . ' ? \ Added new server option AllowNonAsciiUsername (default false). This can be set to true to allow the use of non-ascii characters in the username, such as the Cyrillic alphabet etc..) Game now checks username in lowercase when accessing the database. So if your name is BLARG, but you type BLaRG you will still join. Added clear console command for client and server Commands can now be temporaly disabled with DisabledCommand annotation. Disabled connections, grantadmin, removeadmin, servermessage and thunder commands. Help also disabled for these commands by annotation Added debug menus for weather, climate, bodydamage and stats - which can be opened with shift-backspace: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6KdrMqzHrE&feature=youtu.be&t=14 Added more climate modding options Weather now affect chance of starting the car (specially on low quality engine, the colder, the harder is to start). Added more filters to characters used in player usernames (, / @ $) FIXES
    Fixed not being able to create new username. Fixed removed unused import and leftover debug lines. Fixed new players not being able to join server. Fixed unnecassary 'ban steam id' when banuser is preferable Fixed Coordinates parameter being used with 'add vehicle' command Fixed wrong calcul in Nutritions values (it'll be now easier to gain more weight if eating high carbs or lipids food) Fixed "Survived For" showing on the character screen if the player doesn't have a watch.

Fixed Banuser command Fixed output from help command not being alphabetical Fixed players not being able to execute commands if they have the correct rights. Fixed wrong calcul in startEngine process. Fixed multiple VehicleFailingToStart sounds playing. Fixed DebugChunkState not rendering weather effects. Fixed scaling of lines when zooming indoors. Fixed some map issues: A house had a grass floor, a trailer had a TV on the same square as a kitchen counter, a building had no light switches in two upper floor rooms. Fixed doors/radios/tvs/windows sometimes having different states on clients and the server. Fixed ReleaseSafehouse command Fixed and refactored Grant Admin and Remove Admin commands  Fixed incorrect trunk size of vans with seats.

    Hey all, here’s a quick run-down on where we’re at with Build 40 and beyond.
    BUILD 41+
    With the final touches being made to build 40, we’re now at the point of making a decision on what to do for the next build.
    The issue with huge features like our new animation and clothing system, and everything that comes with it, living on another code branch is you tend to have to play catch-up a lot. The developers on the base game add or fix things on the non-animation branch, those changes need merging in – and due to the vast differences in the underlying code due to the animations this tends to add in extra work for the four guys over at TEA working on the new systems.
    There comes a point you’ve just got to go all in and commit, or you’ll be playing catch-up forever. So (even though we have a few non-anim things ready to roll for Build 41 – like improved MP admin and gamepad functionality) as soon as build 40 is live and patched, we will be making the leap and merging in both the work we originally did, and all the extra animation tech that’s been worked on by TEA into the main development branch
    This will mean that every developer at Indie Stone, including the chaps at TEA and at General Arcade, will all be working directly on the same version, and the focus of the entire team will be shifted onto making sure the entire game functions with the new animation system.
    There is still a lot to do, there’s a lot of game there and things like cars and multiplayer will need some work to get functional, but this move will commit us and the next non-hotfix and non-patch build after 40 goes live will be the animations build.
    It also means that blog updates about it all (once the dust has settled from the big switch-over) will hopefully become a bit clearer and less dry and technical. As well as, say, this week’s news that ‘Zac has made improvements to the BlendField renderer to help visualise how the anims blend together’ we can increasingly show how the PZ gameplay we all know and love/hate is coming together with the new visuals etc. Which will hopefully prove less frustrating.
    Before this happens, though, TEA need to bed down a few things and prepare some documentation –and we need to get Build 40 out of the door and patched. So….
    PUBLIC IWBUMS BETA 40.17 RELEASED
    We just released version 40.17 to the IWBUMS beta, patchnotes for which are available here. We’re pretty much done with Build 40 at this point, but do need to smuggle in some more temperature balance and seasonal SFX.
    We’re going to do a new internal test build for 40.18 tomorrow with some required fixes for admin commands and the chatbox, with the intention of then releasing it to IWBUMS early next week so we can have one final Community Megatest to shake out any remaining cobwebs.
    There will, as always, be free PZ codes for people who help out – and due to the additions to the game mentioned below it should be a lot of fun. Please keep an eye on the forums for details.
    Turbo has added climate and weather MP admin panels that should make for some really interesting roleplay and gameplay opportunities on PZ servers. Storms, snow and fog can be triggered at will to cover the entirety of the map – as well as overall climate values can be now be ticked to override what the game has conjured itself depending on what time of year it is. Server admins can also play around with how night appears, whether the game appears in monochrome etc We’re hoping that it’ll be a lot of fun.
     
    Rain and snow now look like they hit the ground, which makes for a huge visual improvement. Rain then disappears, and snow fades out. Likewise, Turbo has also fixed how precipitation wasn’t clearly visible when zoomed in.
    There’s also a bunch of fixes including: issues with various in-game tiles, gun sounds not being heard far enough away in multiplayer, two bugs that spawned a random zombie in a barricaded bathroom and the ability to learning from the TV and radio when asleep. Full list here! This week’s van diagram from La_Chaise™. A general list of stuff added to PZ, and vids of features being worked on, is kept here – so you don’t have to plough through endless dev blogs for info. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send blogs like this and patch notes direct to your mailbox. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too.

    Thursday, Thursday one and all. We’re currently knuckling down on the Build 40 IWBUMS beta – as it’s pretty much feature complete at this stage, and are currently sweeping up as many issues as we can to package with the public release.
    To this end, we’ve just released IWBUMS beta version 40.16. In amongst the longer changelistof bug fixes and polish this version contains the following.
    Reflective windows on vehicles. Player temperature rework including better time control and overall system improvements, and clothing insulation values. This also includes a moodle to show, in extreme cases, wind speed and wind chill factor. Added ability to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit Improved weather effects to show snow, rain and clouds being better reflected by windspeed. This is also alongside improved blizzard and storm effects, and more ‘vertical’ appearing rain so it appears less snow-like. Bug fixes including passengers no longer falling out of moving cars during short disconnects, the issue with not being able to refill propane torches, Q not attracting zeds, zeds appearing black on reloading, snow covering up fire tiles and upgraded door frames blocking player movement. It works on Macs again now. If you are one of our testers then please be aware of two issues while you’re playing.
    This version might come packaged with an issue on some graphics cards due to a shader issue. We have a Radeon 390 on our internal testers, and it’s playing up a bit. Please let us know if you have any problems, so we know how widespread an issue it is. If you are impacted, then please try turning off the Steam Overlay and see if it helps. EP has also fixed an OLD bug that had zombies being immune to attacks while staggering backwards. This might create other bugs though, so please let us know if anything weird happens around smacking zeds around with melee weapons We’ve compiled some guidance as to how the new chat functions work, and you can find them here on the forum. Hopefully there’s not too much wrong with it, as that would make a Russian man cry. That said, some functions might not be 100% yet, and likewise chat history will come in the next version. Still to do on Build 40 are tasks like adding admin control to the new weather and climate system – which we will then use in a Community IWBUMS Megatest to flush out remaining bugs and issues. We think the ability to accompany bans from servers with the sound of thunder might be quite fun, alongside the added RP value that a godlike control of the elements will bring. We also have a soundbank of seasonal effects that Turbo would still like to add in, if he has time before release.
    Elsewhere we have plans for upcoming features in future builds crystallizing now (the power network, car upgrades, some thoughts on the farming revamp etc), and clearly have the guys at TEA working on the animation system too.
    After we put out our guidance on how to get new vehicle mods into the game alongside the official vehicles then it’s been really gratifying to see them starting to appear in the Workshop. Please check out Filibuster Rhymes’ Used Cars, for example. Hopefully one car set of many to appear in the future.

    Hey all, Thursday greetings.
     
    IWBUMS BETA 40.14 RELEASED
    We’ve just released IWBUMS beta 40.14, which is another release that’s primarily fix and polish – our current aim for the devs working on this build being to make lots of quality of life corrections and adjustments while Turbo finishes his weather/climate work and the version can get a full public release. You can see the patch notes here.
    To this end this version fixes missing raindrops, absent MP storms and other climate errors – while EP has also figured out the annoying sound volume and delayed sound issues, which should now be eradicated. The telepathic ‘terminator’ zeds trailing after players in MP that several of our IWBUMS testers have reported have also been stripped of their powers.
    EP has also made improvements to alleviate longstanding woes with zombies appearing in your vision cone all-too-late in large buildings like the Mall, and Yuri has made fuel caps more accessible through his vehicle anti-clipping force-field.
    EP has also been through all the various vehicle features and made them operate as you’d expect when the car battery is dead or uninstalled, also having them still operational until the car is powered down when the battery is removed and the engine is going. Another minor, but irritating and ancient, bug he’s figured out is the frozen food that’s been spawning in freezers long after the final power outage.
    Please be aware that SpiffoSpace remains open for IWBUMS testing. This server, based in France, has no password and can be found by anyone running the beta (access details here). Once we’ve added in some admin power over weather (admin-triggered storm/snow/fog etc) we will be coordinating a Community Megatest on here.
    IWBUMS NEXT
    Due for internal testing over the weekend and early next week, Turbo has redone the way the IWBUMS beta currently has changes in temperature, and resistance to hot and cold, impact on the player. Although it works okay-ish currently, the edges were too rough – and deaths were often broken/cheap.
    His revamped system focuses on how resistance to the elements is calculated – and the way it takes hunger, thirst, worn clothing, wetness and exercise all into account should be a marked improvement. The temperature ‘safe zone’ range will be wider too, and the system takes ‘real time’ minutes into account rather than ‘game time’ – so fast forward peril is decreased, alongside being dead by dawn next to the embers of a camp fire.
    The next version will also improve weather visuals to better distinguish rain from snow, and add in temperature conversions – so our Kentucky setting gets its proper and correct Fahrenheit readings, rather than horrid old European centigrade.
     
    MUSIC MAN ZACH
    While the four guys over at T.E.A. continue to work on our new animations system, we thought it might be worthwhile mentioning the fifth horseman of that build: our music composer Zach Beever.
    Since animations are such a fundamental evolution of the game, we want a whole bunch of new music to bring players along emotionally with the new visuals. Zach’s been working with us for months now, preparing a whole host of new tracks, many including familiar themes and motifs from old favourites.
    Rather than drip them in one by one, and to give him time to work on them as a collective whole, we felt their impact would be far greater if they all went in together. To this end, behind the scenes, Zach has now completed 19 new music tracks, with more to come – and a part of one of the latest can be heard below.
    https://projectzomboid.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/zacpreview.mp3?_=1
          For thoughts on his direction and inspiration for the music, we thought we’d ask the man himself.
    “When I began work on the soundtrack some years ago, part of the overall vision was to incorporate instruments that were totally removed from the Kentucky setting. The thinking was to mirror the massive shift in the world—that whole zombie thing—with an equally big change in the (expected) music. What could have possibly been played by the banjo and fiddle, for example, went to the tar and duduk.”
    “Recently, though, the team brought up a player’s suggestion to reexamine this and tie in aspects of the local music. This took some thought and a good bit of experimentation, as I didn’t want to upset the identity we had created for Zomboid.”
    “The result is a new set of tracks that, I believe, expand on the old ones faithfully—the mood is still there, but now we’ve got American-style sounds mixing with the more middle-eastern sounding ones. When everything’s heard together, I hope the occasional appearance of these instruments (and their distinct playing styles) hints at the past world.”
     
    VEHICLE ENHANCEMENTS
    Behind the scenes there’s currently a lot of conversation about revamps of existing systems (farming, last week’s thoughts on polishing the power outage etc) but something else we’re discussing are ‘survival-style’ skill and recipe-based enhancements to vehicles. To which end, we thought we’d float this image of our potential direction with this in front of the community – to gauge opinion and gather some feedback.
    Please note that this is NOT a final representation – it requires a full art pass, not to mention a lot of coding work that will likely come from General Arcade’s Yuri for a future build. It does, however, show how a modular model system could work – and we’d like your thoughts on it.

    Build 40 has been released onto the public 'I Will Back Up My Save' IWBUMS beta.  For information how to access this, please go here.
     
    NEW
     
    Simulated weather and climate system - recreating true-to-life weather patterns through 365 days of the year New shaders for times of day and seasonal effects Storms that move over the map Fog and mist New 'A Storm is Coming' and 'The Mist Descends' scenarios  New isoRegions system to detect an enclosed area - player-made or dev-created - to keep weather effects on the outside New player character temperature system New Chatbox. Primary features include separate chat streams (safehouse, local, global, etc), customizable chat and more intuitive usage and commands. It's hopefully a lot more convenient now. New system to convert objects placed by mappers so they can be used as functional game objects. This covers items like barricades, campfires, rain barrels, traps, composters, crops etc. New functionalities for the PZ sound system. Formerly modders couldn't override sounds in PZ FMOD soundbanks, so when players find certain sounds are too loud or annoying (heartbeat, zombie alert, flies, level up noise etc) it was hard to raise/lower them independently. Details about all the game sounds now go into media/scripts/sounds.txt. A new in-game UI allows users change the volume of any sound they feel is too oppressive. Winter is Coming game mode now works with new climate system. Seasons still impact on this mode - 'Summer' highest temperature is 0 degrees centigrade, and winters may drop to -30. After 3 full days a powerful weather period is generated, that will always feature a blizzard. New MP Admin UI added: an Items list viewer in the admin panel. It can be used to quickly search through, and spawn, items. Added BloodSplatLifespanDays server option to remove old blood-splats. Added a 'Revert screen settings' feature after 20 seconds for when newly selected resolution settings are incompatible. Single tile doors can now be blocked from opening/closing by obstacles - as it is with double doors. New car-battery charger that is placed on the ground and interacted with using a context menu. Transferring water from an object to an inventory item nos requires equipping that item. The amount of water to transfer is calculated in start() instead of when the action is queued.  Repair Engine and Take Engine Parts now show progressbars and flash Success/Failure. Drunk moodle now has an impact on driver steering input Added a way to edit admin powers (invisible, godmod, no clip, unlimited carry, various cheat...) in the MP admin panel. Added in-game Sandbox options editor for server admins - this will allow server admins to change in-game settings that do not require a restart. Updated community translations. Also updated translations with the display names to aid the process. Many UI changes to handle different font sizes. Added context-menu font-size option. Warnings now displayed on button tooltips in the Mods screen. Added UIFont.DebugConsole for the lua console which doesn't handle larger fonts. Added a setColor function to BaseVehicle.java. Added DebugOptions.WorldStreamerSlowLoad to simulate slow map loading. Added a way for outside signs to have light (check room under it if they have electricity). Added lights to neon signs. Added a way to dismantle car wreck (burnt car) with a propane torch & a welding mask. Gathered metal material will depend on your metalwork skill. Added buttons to server-disconnect screen to return to Main Menu or Quit to Desktop. Added seperate Shadow extents from vehicle extents to allow for better shadows You can now improve wooden door frames as you would walls. (This won't work on previously built frames though). Updated fonts to bold to aid readability. Re-exported the map for to improve zombie density in some farmland and rural areas.  Changed First Week in One Week Later and adjusted settings to make sure that new players aren't given too easy a ride. Added a way to edit Admin powers (invisible, godmod, no clip, unlimited carry etc) in the in-game admin panel Players can now be harmed when hit by a car. DamageToPlayerFromHitByACar sandbox option added Added back the Lowest lighting-quality display option. [Lowest lighting quality now doesn't use the circle-stencil and doesn't draw a second pass of floor shading, so it is a help to low-spec users.] Added Display option to disable the new roof-hiding feature for low-spec users. Shader now used to draw wall + stencil + lighting in a single pass. Difficult to tell how much FPS boost this results in, but could help. Client now displays the first lua or script file that does not match one on the server to aid user diagnosis of things going wrong with MP Added an eight-second timeout while waiting for the checksum response from the server. Added player body temperature info to moodles Updated menu screen with vertical rather than horizontal options - due to problems with taskbar in latest Windows Updates. Added a UI to display status and error messages when attempting to connect to a server. Added a chevrons on character screen next to the weight to indicate if weight is increasing or decreasing. New driving-related traits  
    BALANCE
     
    Reduced the the impact of loot modifier sandbox option on easier difficulty. Increased the height of tooltip progressbars by 1 pixel. Added being able to rest/sleep on picnic table (considered as a bad bed.) Added missing Raspberry Shortbread, CookieChocolateChip" & Candycane" items to the loot table. Added missing nutrition values to medicinal herbs and condiments. Disabled zombies sprinters in MP (if speed is set to Sprinter, it'll be set back to Fast Shamblers) Lowered the alarm clocks & digital watch wake up distance. Added "Very Low" choice to CarSpawnRate Sandbox option. Increased VOIP range  (fade and falloff) Bowls of soup now affect thirst. Wood barricades require two nails. Previously in SP 2 nails would be used, while in MP only 1 would be used. Changed in-vehicle visibility cone when driving through weather effects. Cone now extends based on darkness value. Metal tube added to dismantle car wreck loot table. Player can now sleep in a car that has its engine running. Moved the ServerToolbox (and Lua DebugConsole) close buttons to the left to match other windows. Improved vehicle handling  
    MODDING
     
    LoadVehicleModel lua function and re-calc spawn chance added to aid players who want to mod in new/individual cars. Mapper-placed generators are now functional objects when first loaded.

    We’ve just updated the public weather build beta to version 40.7, which will probably be the last one before we widen it out to the more heavily subscribed IWBUMS public beta channel. (Steam beta password is ‘weathertestbranch’ for those wanting to check it out.) Primary new features in this include:
    Turbo has hooked the Winter is Coming game mode to the new climate system. After three full days of preparation time a powerful weather period is generated, that will always feature a blizzard. The mode will still follow seasons, of a sort, with the mode’s ‘Summer’ having a high temperature of 0 degrees centigrade, and the ‘Winter’ dropping to -30. A time-lapse of the initial Blizzard in Winter is Coming can be seen below.
    Before the public release of this build we will likely also add in an Endless Night and Mega Stormy scenarios too (names placeholder!), and likewise experiment with zombies being attracted to the rumble of thunder.
    Placeholder moodles have been added to show the ‘heating up’ and ‘cooling down’ of player temperature, but this will likely change to being shown on the player health screen. We don’t want this aspect of the game to become too distracting and micro-managey, and don’t feel that an over-population of the moodles is entirely the way to go. [In the meantime, however, they are quite useful for tracking impact of the WIP system. This build hopefully nerfs some of the more extreme impacts of temperature too.] RJ has coded a new MP Admin UI to help server owners quickly search through, and spawn, items. It looks a bit like this.
    Stas has continued to update his new chat system – and this version has a bunch of bugs fixed that have arisen in testing, alongside a much neater fade-in and fade-out for the input field. New car stuff: When dismantling a car wreck metal items are now spawned on the ground instead of player’s inventory. The player can also now sleep in a car that has its engine running, and Turbo has also played around with the visibility cone when driving through more intense weather effects. General Arcade’s Yuri has also exposed various elements of the vehicle code to modders, essentially rewriting stuff like LoadVehicleModel and vehicle spawn governance, in lua. This will aid modders who want to add in new/individual cars to operate alongside the existing ones of the vanilla game. He has also written a guide for this, which will go onto the forum in the coming week. The full changelist for 40.7, which also contains a lot of handy fixes and tweaks, can be found here. If you missed the full current changelist for the version 40 weather beta last week then that can also be found here.
    [As mentioned in the last blog this build also contains a system that converts items placed by mappers into in-game objects, the rethought soundbank system, an improved car battery charge system, in-game sandbox options for MP admins more readable fonts and players damaged by vehicles in MP.]
    Elsewhere we had a productive anims meeting with Bitbaboon Mark and the team at TEA this week, with work like a tidy-up of the state system, improved documentation of current player functions, a motion extraction build for Martin the Animator to play around with and an investigation into depth buffer usage to help with model issues all now being worked on over in their HQ. (None of it sexy stuff, but all of it necessary and in good hands.)
    Meanwhile RingoD is now helping out Mash when it comes to Louisville, and in particular the suburbs, creating house variants on what we already have in-game so that when the larger urban area finally arrives (as we’ve said before, this is a huge project so will be several public builds away at least) the expanded number of buildings won’t feel cookie-cutter.
    This week’s roof garden from Eddie. A general list of stuff added to PZ, and vids of features being worked on, is kept here – so you don’t have to plough through endless dev blogs for info. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send blogs like this and patch notes direct to your mailbox. We also live on Twitter right here! Our Discord is open for chat and hijinks too.

    halkaze reacted to Batsphinx in WEATHER TEST BUILD - New thread and full changelist for 40.6   
    PLEASE NOTE: This build introduces new 'cooling up' and 'cooling down' info to the moodles. This is relatively placeholder, and this information will likely appear in the Health Panel in future builds.  It might be handy for seeing what's happening with the new system and playtesting though.
