  1. Carrying big & small

    Dismantling and carrying big things, e.g. popsicle fridge makes a little sense. It seems normal to dismantle e.g a couch (yet IMHO process should spawn more "pieces" than just 1 for every tile) Wouldn't it be better to add option to push and pull objects in "Furniture movement" menu? They would work only in long axis of an object. Also, moving 1x1 object should occupy both hands, like moving a generator. No way putting wooden crates in trash bags. (And it would be nice to have an emergency "let go" button somewhere.) And here I've stumbled on another issue. No way picking up whole big-ass fridge by your hands, they need a strict limit of Strength factor. That's for big stuff, now look at all these tote bags full of 15 pillows... How to tell which objects are too big for which containers? It needs adding only a single number in items and object stats. Let's call it "cubature" and define as "the longest dimension of an object". If object's cubature is equal to container's capacity, it fills it entirely and nothing else can be put in there; if bigger, there's simply not enough space for it. If cubature is smaller than capacity, you can stuff it up to it's weight limit. I suggest using a book and medkit as a base of "1". How does it sound for you?
  2. Something Easier to Carry Bodies

    Couldn't wheelbarrows and shopping carts be some kind of simplified vehicles, basically trunks on wheels? Would be great not only for bodies, but other stuff as well.
  3. Better looking storage areas/crates idea

    Would be great to see shelves and other storage objects changing their look along with their contents. They already "react" to its mass (can be empty/half filled/full), and items have their categories. Maybe it's some work, but I can't miss opportunity to voice against kitchens full of books.
  4. Power Musings

    I had an immediate shutoff of power twice and water once. And there was time I left my base (bar in south Muldraugh), stacked full with empty gas cans I've gathered in two days earlier wherever I could, going to nearest gas station. Power failed when I was on my way. Personally, my favorite shutoff setting would be "0-7 days". Hope I'll see it someday.
  5. Accidents - self inflicted wounds

    Self-inflicted wounds, that can happpen when using a tool. Cuts from knives, saws (hands or arms), screwdrivers (hands only), and hatchets (legs or head), burns from welding torch (limbs), bruises - new kind of injury, not needing any treatment and healing quickly - from hammers (hands or arms) and sledge (legs or head). When sleepy, ill, drunk, panicked, heavily stressed, and having "All thumbs" or "Unlucky" traits - chance of accident increases. Staying home away from zombies will not guarantee you not seeing any blood anymore.
  6. 569. It's weird that books and gazettes disappear after reading. I think they should be treated as canned food - read a bit, or a whole if you like, and then be left with paper block that won't give you fun anymore, so you can throw it in the fire as well. 570. Any crafted electric device should need a battery to work (and they are kinda too quick to build). 571. Zombies are better at dismantling doors than a player - they always leave a perfect set of hinges, doorknob and boards. That amazes me. 572. I totally dont get how I can pass the zombie in the window. It should be a guaranteed bite, or just block ability to go through currently used window. 573. How does one disinfect internal broken bone and how exactly does it help? Weird.
  7. About Electricity

    I've found home alarm exactly once. IMO it would be cool if home alarm was an object (spawning in alarmed houses and maybe possible to spot through the window) not just lootable item.
  8. Built a freaking mansion on the empty place, north from Muldraugh. About month of in-game time, meanwhile living in the small, two-storied white house at the end of town. Day by day, at dawn, running to the building site, coming back at nightfall. Gathered favorite furniture. Moving a fridge alone took me about a day. In about half of building time it became boring as hell, yet I've sticked to it for the sake of future perfect base. Finally comes the day of moving in, the last thing to do was to bring and install a generator - it could work constantly for half a year with all the gas I've gathered at the start. That's how I have discovered that player built houses cannot be electrified.
  9. Floor space vs. any other container space

    At the beginning of a game I also just throw my loot on the floor and go looting again, but always segregate it later. When everything is just piled around, you'll gonna spend a lot of time searching for just-that-one-thing-you-need-NOW. After throwing 50 units of stuff on a floor, it looks like unidentifable mess, and probably you will lose orientation what's where. Also, sometimes things don't land exactly where you want them to - containers are more precise. Not exactly sure how's with your second post. Storing things on the floor is good only for heavy things, and no more than 2-3 types of them, e.g. boards and logs. The best capacity-surface ratio container is a stack of 3 wooden crates (they're 50, not 25, or maybe you look at cartbox) - you got 150 per square.
