    Maris reacted to Primal in 41.36 Damage to machines. Is it reasonable?   
    Hello. I like how the power of the machines was cut, but they are collapsing as fast as if water was flowing from under the tap. I did not go at high speed. I crawled like a turtle so as not to destroy the hood. But at some point, my engine died. On other machines, all body parts + wheels died.

    clothing do affect stealth by changing the amount of noise you do when moving. 
    as per the above, they probably heard your footsteps, especially at lower sneak levels and without the proper shoes. 
    the third point is actually really needed, together with the future cover system / peek from cover system.

    Maris reacted to BoogieMan in Stealth indicators   
    Maybe, but some other things would have to get more attention for it to work well.
    -I'm not aware of clothing affecting your stealth in any way at present, although it should based on lighting.
    -Zombies seem to hear you doing things if you're within a certain distance even if you're not triggering the game to play a sound effect. You hear nothing, they hear "something."
    -Zombies don't seem to me to be affected by things that should reduce their ability to hear you such as rain, thunder, or a car idling nearby.
    Any sound that is a good deal louder than others should reduce or even cancel out the quieter sounds unless those listening are very close to the origination.

    Would it be useful to add indicators of the noise you make?  And an indicator of visibility, how well you can be seen in a particular setting, including clothing worn on you.

    It's supposed to but a few releases ago they disabled that because they're still fixing some bugs.
    It's possible they've reintroduced it but I personally don't remember reading anything about that in the changelogs.

    Maris reacted to Banjo in How do you get the player's co-ordinates?   
    Simple question, related to my other thread but since nothing showed up in searches I thought it would be better to ask in a new one so others can find it for help if they want to do the same...
    I figured it out, but for those who are wanting to know how, here's the code from Robomat's awesome Co-Ordinates Viewer mod...
            local absX = player:getX();
            local absY = player:getY();

            local cellX = absX / 300;
            local cellY = absY / 300;
            local locX = absX % 300;
            local locY = absY % 300;
    absX and absY are "absolute" co-ordinates (where in the whole game world you are)
    cellX, cellY, locX and locY are "relative" co-ordinates (current cell and location within it, as used in start spawns)

    Maris reacted to ATPHHe in Load files order   
    Hmm. Not sure if one guide exists yet as I haven't found one.
    From what I've seen in the CMD/Debug Console, the game loads PZ Lua files, then Mod Lua files from the "lua" folder based on what's happening below.
    Build 40
    Lua files in these folders are loaded when you are booting up Project Zomboid, reloading lua mods, or returning to the main menu:
    Loaded 1st:     "../media/lua/shared"      ( folders/files loaded alphabetically - PZ Lua files, then Mod Lua files ) Loaded 2nd:    "../media/lua/client"      ( folders/files loaded alphabetically - PZ Lua files, then Mod Lua files )  
    Lua files in these folders are loaded only when you are starting up a Singleplayer game/save, or a Multiplayer Server:
    "../media/lua/server"      ( folders/files loaded alphabetically - PZ Lua files, then Mod Lua files )  
    Build 41 seems to keep the same load order for Lua files from Build 40.
    For other files like 3d models, scripts, textures, texturepacks, etc., I cannot confirm yet how they are loaded exactly.
    Hope this helps a little bit though.

    And ofc we all are waiting for armored parts for vehicles (including armored metal windows). At least plz add possibility for modders to use armored models of vehicle parts in their mods.

    Maris reacted to Morbo513 in Vehicles are overpowered   
    Would like everything Strepan mentions, though I think vehicle modification should be quite extensive - reinforcing the chassis and other major components, in addition to different types of passive weapons and armour, eg. a cow-catcher, wire mesh and/or bars over/instead of windows, that sorta stuff. Nothing too mad-max but just enough options for the player's vehicle to be able to be somewhat unique. These would have course make the car heavier, slower to accelerate, harder to handle, less fuel-efficient and harder on its tires, suspension, brakes etc - the player could balance this out by stripping out non-essentials and using different parts.
    That said, realistically, I think you probably could run over a zombie at low speeds without doing significant damage to the vehicle or occupants - doing so to a zombie at a time, 100 times over, I don't think would make much of a difference. Rather, I think cars should have a risk of getting their wheels caught in piles of corpses so it's more risky to use against crowds.
    With the changes to damage to vehicles from hitting zombies, I think cars should preserve much more intertia at medium and high speeds, especially if they're on the heavier side.

    On the subject of vehicles in general, something else I'd like to see is being able to use "seats" for both passengers and cargo, regardless of whether there's a seat installed - currently that just means even more empty space, but for some reason you aren't allowed to use it. For passengers, it could mean they're much more susceptible to damage from crashes - cargo could be dropped/damaged on crashes, especially if the boot's open or the car's missing doors.

    Does it go down faster or slower than 'Resting'? I get it when you hit Rest on a chair you can see the progress bar filling to show you how much is left for a full rested state BUT is it the same speed as sitting on the ground?

    Try to sleep on the ground in RL.
    Even if you haven’t slept for 2 days, it’s quite difficult to fall asleep on the ground. In any case, the sleeping will be restless and incomplete. And in the game there is also a fear that they will eat you, which certainly will not allow you to sleep normally.
    In the bed, at least, you can hide in a blanket, and the "monsters" will not see you.

    Maris reacted to ATPHHe in How to call a LUA method as a response to a Zomboid Event?   
    One solution is to change "MyClass:OnPlayerUpdate(p)" by removing the colon and replacing it with a period, "MyClass.OnPlayerUpdate(p)".
    I am not sure why this works, but it has to do with how  . and : on "MyClass" both act with Zomboid's Events.
    local MyClass = {} function MyClass:new(o) setmetatable(o, self) self.__index = self --Events.OnPlayerUpdate.Add(self:OnPlayerUpdate) -- Error: function arguments expected near `)` Events.OnPlayerUpdate.Add(self.OnPlayerUpdate) return o end function MyClass.OnPlayerUpdate(p) print(p) end local o = {} local instance = MyClass:new(o)  
    With this change, "print(p)" should produce this now.

    Maris reacted to ATPHHe in getMusicPosition()   
    You can use "getSoundManager():getMusicPosition()".
    You can also test and play around with "getSoundManager():getPosition()".
    Both functions "getMusicPosition()" and "getPosition()" return only floats.
    To be exact, they both return Time Elapsed in milliseconds (ms).
    To get seconds, you need to divide the music position by 1000.
    local sound_position = getSoundManager():getMusicPosition() local totalSeconds = sound_position / 1000  
    I created a function that prints the time of the music being played in many various forms.
    You can choose which time formats you'd like from this, or you can edit or reference this code.
    -- Prints in various forms, the current elapsed time of the music that is currently playing. function printCurrentMusicTime(isoPlayer) local sound_position = getSoundManager():getMusicPosition() print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (ms): %.2f", sound_position)) local totalHours = sound_position / 1000 / 60 / 60 local totalMinutes = sound_position / 1000 / 60 local totalSeconds = sound_position / 1000 print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (hours): %.1f", totalHours)) print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (minutes): %.1f", totalMinutes)) print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (seconds): %.1f", totalSeconds)) local totalHoursRounded = math.floor(sound_position / 1000 / 60 / 60) local totalMinutesRounded = math.floor(sound_position / 1000 / 60) local totalSecondsRounded = math.floor(sound_position / 1000) print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (hoursRounded): %.1f", totalHoursRounded)) print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (minutesRounded): %.1f", totalMinutesRounded)) print(string.format("Current Music Time Elapsed (secondsRounded): %.1f", totalSecondsRounded)) local music_clock = millisecondsToClock(sound_position) print(string.format("Music Clock: %s", music_clock)) end -- Returns a clock as a String in "hh:mm:ss" format. function millisecondsToClock(ms) local sec = tonumber(ms)/1000 if sec <= 0 then return "00:00:00"; else local hours = string.format("%02.f", math.floor(sec/3600)); local minutes = string.format("%02.f", math.floor(sec/60 - (hours*60))); local seconds = string.format("%02.f", math.floor(sec - hours*3600 - minutes*60)); return string.format("%s:%s:%s", hours, minutes, seconds) end end Events.OnRenderTick.Add(printCurrentMusicTime)  
    When this function "printCurrentMusicTime" is called, it prints the various time formats on console.

    Here's the actual SoundManager functions. I hope this all helps. Enjoy
