  1. Hello, I have some weird bug with temperature on versions 41.33 and 41.34. My digital watch always shows me the same temperature value (Celsius - 22; Fahrenheit - 71.6) inside every building. No matter how cold or hot outside, no matter day or night, first or second floor etc. But the only exception is burning heat sources like BBQ's and fireplaces inside building - then the temperature will increase or decrease. The outdoor temperature and temperature inside the cars works pretty fine, like it should be. I also found that in versions like 41.27 and 41.28 ("zoom" and "zombiefpstest" branches) there is no sign of this bug - indoor temperature works fine. And yes, I tried to reinstall the game and mods on IWBUMS branch, but seems that not working for me. The only solution of this annoying bug is roll back to previous versions. And, finally, the last thing - I watched some Zomboid videos on Youtube and find out that only one of 4 players which I have watched has the bug like mine. I don't found any temperature bug reports in Steam or this forum so I think it might help a bit.
  2. It's a really good idea, especially food expiration mechanic. I would be very glad to see the opportunity of determining the expiration date in game or something like that. Food like milk, ice cream, eggs ( in box ), mayonnaise and remoulade already can jump into this mechanic and many another food items can jump later with your good '''packaged food'' suggestion. Fruits and vegetables ( also bread, meat and more another pre-made food) can be packed in plastic packages and boxes ( or another material) and can be found can be found in a variety of places ( food markets, fridges or freezers and even cars.). But I think that this packed food should be pretty rare - for game balance. This is also good suggestion, I think that food spoiling mechanic needs some improvements, food spoiling can be more realistic with your and vanorfeadiel suggestions. Winter is really dangerous now ( I died because of hypotermia from 11 hours in late December with sweater) and it would great if my food could have been stored more time. Hand-made fridge or mini-cellar that can be made with spade and planks would be something fantastic even if effectiveness of this thing will be much lower than in usual electric fridge. And maybe partially eaten chips, cereals, chocolates and similar non- perishable food item should spoil too. You are absolutely right - it's fine if you can determine approximate nutritional values of food, but the possibility to see exact nutritional values, especially on player-made food like soups and salads? It's definitely unrealstic, food during cooking often changes its nutritional properties, but maybe if player have high cooking skills ( level 5 and even above ) the possibility to see this values might be pretty realistic. Anyway, I don't think that too many PZ players play with this perk - 4 free points can be spent on another perks that give slight boost to usefull skils like fishing, farming and first aid or some another usefull perks. Player weight monitoring is really usefull thing, but now we can see player weight in "J" info menu without weighing in scales... Just now realised that the possibility to weighing and learn your weight also would be realistic, considering that the scales are already in the game
  3. It's just my mistake with my editing of this post. Two first my screenshots are showing some bugs and last - this is night temperature in June, 1 which I discovered exactly in previous weather beta version 39.68 ( standart weather settings ). I wanted to say that weather now really unpredictable and farming can be really hard ( especially in autumn). I'm sure that I saw mention about reworking of farming system in some of previous Thursdoids, would be great to see different farming.
  4. The current weather beta version looks pretty good, but there is still some bugs 1. Missing floor tiles on 2nd floor in this building ( Riverside) -https://map.projectzomboid.com/#0.5529902847673417,0.0899333071994897,1305.3977172958737 2. When I died, my corpse became invisible ( Maybe because of grass and erosion aroud, met this before with zombies corpses in 39.67.5) And about optimization - maybe there will be any optimizations of weather effects or something ? I played without zombies and 12 months erosion and FPS are much lower than in 39.67.5 ( before I get around 50 FPS with max zoom level with zombies, now I get around 35 FPS with same settings, and with fog even less.) Also, zombies in 40.3 seems to be more indifferent to the player. I played in 39.67.5 version 3 days ago and zombies in this version definitely be more aggresive to the player and heard & see me much better than now. Now they still reacting pretty good, but not enough as in 39.67.5. Many of them now just standing on ground without any movement, before they moving around more often and be more dangerous.
  5. The newest update of this branch with improved temperature impact are interested me, so I decided to give some feedback about some features: 1. Player modifiers- I don't know them very well yet, but they definitely impact on player body temperature. As I noticed, combination of values "Hunger"," Thirst" and "Tired" modifiers gave me some negative boost to my body temperature in summer ( increase temperature) and in winter ( reduce temperature). Unfortunately, I don't know about others modifiers like "wetness" or "sickness", but guess that they also have some kind of negative or positive(?) effects. 2. Air near player- it's really interesting thing. Difference between "World temperature" and "Air near player" is really well-designed and especially noticeably in winter. In January, 9 difference between temperature outside and inside at least is 3-4 at noon and evening and more in morning and night ( up to 8-9 ) in usual one-storied house. Haven't found any difference in temperature between first or second floor. In cars this feature also work pretty well - I got around +4-5 to this value without working heater in evening of October, 9. 3. Heat sources - campfire can be really usefull to keep warm, it gives a great boost to "Air near player" value. Can say that this is even more effective than car heater - at least campfire warms up much faster even if heater turn on max power. Both of them give around 27-30 up to "Air near player" value ( but campfire can give even more or less, it's heavily depends on player distance.). Other heat sources like BBQs and fireplaces are usefull too. 4. About cars- there is really big difference between driving with open window and turned on AC/heater in summer and winter. In summer the entire effect of AC is neutralized very quickly when I open the window (the air around me becomes the same temperature as world temperature). In winter I can drive with open window and even broken windshield and effect of heater is persist (although it decreases) for a pretty long time, maybe 1-1.5 hours, during this time I left Muldraugh and arrived to March Ridge + checked dormitory really fast. Air temperature in my car decreased from 27 to 14.
  6. Thanks for tips, at this time I definitely finished my work with this hideout- fog displayed normally inside and all roof tiles and doors with windows in place now: But I think that there is some issues with walls displaying And also I got new bug- when I quit from game, fog disappears. Yesterday I quit from game when stayed inside my unfinished hideout and today I discovered that fog around me is gone ( just now got the same bug when quit in main menu and load my save 3 times) and even 3 planks on my window frame disappeared too.
  7. - Game experience is much better for me now. With new shaders combined with snow and other new or improved weather effects the game finally looks like it really has different seasons. Fog, as I understand, can become a serious trouble to the player, and falling snow looks really amazing! PZ runs little slower now, but still enough for comfortable game. About general and serious bugs- there is much quiter sound when I open or close doors and windows compared with stable build. Don't find any problems with zombies, loot spawn or cars at this moment. - Don't play enough, but can say that in January is still pretty warm even with "cold" and "very rainy" sandbox settings. I survived from 10 to 21 day in sweater and didn't get hypotermia. As I can see, weather is more unpredictable now, usually in 10 January it was already fallen snow, now snow falling around 2 days in 17-19 days. Also tried to play a bit in April, July, August and October in various weather settings, but don't find storms yet. Fog is common at least in July and January. - I absolute appreciate this work, especially evening and night shaders in all seasons. It's look just amazing, and now nights look even more terrifying than before! - No problems with that for me. Rain, fog, snow displayed correctly from any point of view. Fallen snow combined with fog also displayed correctly. - Just now build a small hideout without doors and windows. Fog displayed inside building as well as on the street :
  8. Found new bug with water tiles just now - in winter they are covered with snow. Saw this bug when played in sandbox with the same default survival options, but only changed the game date to "January, 10''. At first I thought that it was ice- but no, then I was able to drink and fill a cooking pot with water, so it definitely not ice
  9. This looks really awesome, I like to see such large-scale buildings and cities in PZ, hope you once will end your project Your work reminded me of Louisville, I'm really waiting for cities like Louisville , hope that game optimization and FPS will be good in this places and we all can get a really amazing game experience.
  10. Dont know much about it, but it really make sence. It might be some kind of irritation or alergic reaction. Would be nice to see more things like this in medical system in future builds. Anyway, at this time glass shards in wounds are much dangerous that any infection on them. Excluding zombiefication,of course.
  11. Yes, dirty clothes don't have much influence on gameplay and soap now are pretty common, it's just strange that all my clothes in survival and sandbox( with default clothes options) mode became dirty in 2 game hours and once I even don't kill any zombie,just ran around the town. I did not see this thing in previous builds. About cologne - seems that I get wrong. Before I play with some mods, and maybe this feature with cologne isn't in game now,I don't remember exactly. But if cologne in game is not alcohol-free - it might be usefull feature and alternative to disinfectant. If whiskey contain 40 % of alcohol and can be used to disinfect, cologne with around 70 and 90 % can be usefull too.
  12. This time game runs better than yesterday. Recipe magazines now pretty common (checked in all 4 towns), and in bookstores in WestPoint& Riverside I even find 2 generator manuals in each store without lucky trait.Also glad to see more metalworking magazines in mailboxes. No issues with music today, music play almost every time when I just start new game and some time later. Game not crashed today, but FPS is pretty low for 1-2 minutes when I first enter in game and start a new survival. Today I also find bug with clothes- it becomes dirty very fast: And I can't use cologne to disenfect wounds and ripped sheets ( remember this feature in previous builds like 36.4 and 37.14, maybe it was removed.)
  13. Yes, Windows 10 64 bit Home version
  14. I just checked the game files- there is no missing or corrupted files. Also there is no troubles with my PC and drivers. Maybe I made a mistake when wrote about game version,so i want to slightly clarify my words - my current version is IWBUMS 39.64, the same issue with music what I mentioned today I have seen in previous "vehicle" test branch before it goes into current "IWBUMS", then build with music and some sound issues was called "Vehicle test 39" or something, it was released in March 15. Anyway, I'll try to play again and find other bugs or issues in next days, maybe I can get a new crash log.
  15. Seems that build have some serious issues- at first quick game at Rosewood in Survival mode I again checked 14 mailboxes and only find 1 electronic and 1 auto manual. (For example- in West Point in 39.58 I find Herbalist in 5ft mailbox and 1 engineer and 1 fisher magazines in 7th.) But more important thing- in this time I again found strange bug with music- it only play when I started the game, later I survived almost the whole day and didn't hear any music. In main menu after this game there was no main theme, only silence (I've seen this bug in the Vehicle test build 39 ). And the most important thing- my game crashed when I start another run at same conditions - Rosewood, Survival mode. At first I got low FPS and game slow down, then I quit to main menu and after a few seconds later game crashed. I got traceback for this issue - PZ_traceback3.txt
  16. In March 2015 I bought PZ on Steam,then I was 16 years old and then this game gave more than hours of fun- I realized that PZ is that game about zomie survival which I always want to play. A lot of time has passed since 2015, and now I glad to see many changes from build 31 to build 39, in 2015-2016 I can't even imagine many aspects of game like graves,annoted maps,nutrition system and more other things. I don't know for sure all features that will be added in future, but I'm sure that PZ would be one of the best survival games,not only about zombies.
  17. Just now noticed lack of recipe magazines in mailboxes in Rosewood in Survival mode ( I checked almost all mailboxes in town and found 2 common magazines like auto manual and electric device recipe and only one quite rare magazine- hunter magazine, also I had "lucky" trait ). Especially that's noticeable in comparison with March Ridge, where I found generator and fishing magazines in first mailbox which I checked and many other usefull magazines later.
  18. Seems that Valu tech radio has infinite battery charge. I saw it once and also tried to use Premium tech radio, but consumption of battery charge on Premium tech radio works fine. Also noticed that if I press "esc" when my radio equiped and and works it shut off ( don't know if it's a bug or not, radio also can shut off if I press buttons like 1 or 3 for weapon or something else )
  19. Tried to play in 6 months later and found some bugs. First- almost whole forests on water ( this is one of most extraordinary bugs that I've ever seen in game ) . It definetly depends from erosion, seems that Snakeman found this bug in early stage. And seems that this bug in whole game map- I found it in Riverside and West Point. Second- in 6 months later I've checked 8 cars in first game and 5 in second- and none of them was with working car battery. Their condition was maybe the same as in Survival mode, but battery remaining was 0 % in all cars that I've checked. Maybe working batteries still exist in this mode, I was not looking for a long time. Third- some corpses of killed zombies still accidentally disappear . I can loot them,but it's a little uncomfortable. The only way to see them is the blood around them,and I discovered that corpses are disappearing more often if I kill zombies with knives
  20. Maybe 3D models disabled in your game, so just try to turn on 3D models in graphic settings, at least you need to choose "only player(s)" option if your game runs slowly with big amount of 3D models
  21. I think that some car aspects need balance. For example, one- I survived 1 month and 23 days in Riverside and didn't find any car jack. 6 wrenches and 3 lug wrenches is mine, but there is no one car jack in town and outskirts. Even axes and sledgehammers is more common in my game than this... Second- driving is really good now, but there is strange situation- I can make a tons of gasoline before electricity shut off. But car mechanic is definitely hard for me- mufflers and tires degrades even faster than gas, and upgrading mechanic skill is hard too. Small xp without mechanic proffesion or trait makes it really difficult task. I wanted to upgrade my mechanic skill to 3 level, but without car jack and even with skill book it really hard right now. (And I can suggest-some actions like removing car batteries and lights do not require mechanic skill,but also do not give any xp. I think that this actions could require mechanic skill 1 like removing tires to upgrade skill faster.) And third- loot in cars is really common now, but it's quality is pretty low. Only notebooks,tissues,flashlights,clothing etc. In Riverside there is many good loot,but in other towns like Muldraugh and Rosewood it might be useful to fing rare items in cars. Checked a lot of cars- almost all things are in glove boxes, in trunks there is really lack of things. Loot in zombies with "lucky" trait are more usefull compared to loot in cars with the same trait, so it makes more sense to fight with zombies to find good stuff than looting almost all cars in town.I find 5 axes in good condition in zombie corpses when killed 1342 zombies and any rare weapon or something in cars. About bugs- some corpses of zombies that I killed is dissapearing. I realised that it happens offten around buildings and grass. Corpses is still lootable, but they are invisible. And another bug- the beard of my character once changed its color to more lighter ( I played with goatee and stubble together), but on the same day the color returned to normal. (Just now remember that in 38 version of vehicle test the full beard of my character is disappear after one game loading, don't encounter with this bug in next versions, maybe it's fixed now )
  22. Thanks, I didn't read full changelist attentively, but understand this feature later. It looks really realistic and adds more difficulty in the game, but now "vehicle mechanic" option in radial menu seems to be useless. Just now I survived 28 days in survival mode and didn't find any serious bugs or issues. Still can't find any meat in ovens,but now meat are really common in game, so this is not especially important to me. I'll tell if find any bugs in next build
  23. Thanks,this build looks more playable than previous Now I do not see any significant changes with my game FPS if I disable or enable new UI rendering option or change UI framerate when it enabled (but common UI FPS looks more faster than before in default settings). In my first look seems that enabled rendering give me little smooth game FPS ,but I prefer to play with smooth UI anyway, considering that overall game optimisation is really good at this moment First bug that I found in this build- I can not acess the vehicle mechanic menu when I choose it in radial menu or press "U" button in car. But press "E" at hood always give me it as before.If I already checked mechanic menu around hood,I still can't acess it in the car radial menu or "U" button. And another bug - corpse of dead survivor not visible nearby random wrecked car in Muldraugh:
  24. I think that this mode will look really good together with the game lore. As i know,in canon game modes like survival and first week now we start from day 3 of Knox Infection outbreak. But in non-canon"the initial infection" mode there is no news about current situation on radio and TV,at least in first day.And considering this,your suggested game mode can be the less hardcore alternative to the survival mode. For example-your character start the game in first day of outbreak.As you mentioned,there is many NPC,but first zombies have already appeared,and now panic is already spreading out. First official news says to stay at home and citizens first follow them,but as you say,then they gradually begin to understand that they are doomed...some survivors try to escape the quarantine area with their cars and suplies,but it's' too late.And yes,there is really good opportunity for looting in earliest days of outbreak.You can grab more items in first days of this mode than in compared of survival mode because in 1-2 days of Knox event some people are also engage in robbery. But police might stop them,it just random. Maybe this game mode can be something like story or else.It remotely similar to old PZ Baldspot and Kate story when there were also survivors and news of infection outbreak.Or something sort of "advanced" initial infection mode...
  25. In this build i'm found another strange bug-when i tried to pick up one already working Valu-tech radio,the error appears(traceback included) and i got nothing.But in another time i got this radio as usual and It worked normally.Also next screens of some texture bugs,at this time-in Riverside: 1.https://map.projectzomboid.com/#0.5496445862646812,0.09194821195046171,1297.9806848112382 2.https://map.projectzomboid.com/#0.5491167235776406,0.09800387369893253,1297.9806848112382 3.https://map.projectzomboid.com/#0.534966838100897,0.09233617962825316,1297.9806848112382 PZ traceback_2.txt
