    Battery weight

    Hello, I'm not sure if this has already been addressed - and maybe need to be moved to suggestions section - if so please let me know. Can you please change battery weight from 0.6 to 0.1 (at least). 1 battery for 1 flashlight that weight more than half of the kilogram - is it some sort of power core? Maybe instead of using "battery" - just change this to "batteries" (like 2 batteries) - which is most common setup for flashlights, and change it weight) (for example 1 AA battery weight around 23 grams). I know it is really low priority problem, and there might be logic behind that, but it makes me wanna cry every time i see it
  2. Hi. Small thing really but sometimes confuse the hell out of me. When i have planks in backpack and want to barricade something it will first unpack plank to my inventory and than barricade., however if i have metal sheet in backpack and want to barricade something - nothing happen. I have to first unpack metal sheet "by hand" and than i cam barricade. Option to barricade with metal sheet is visible but not working when metal sheet is in backpack.
  3. Hello, So i am one of the lucky ones who broke his ribs while driving. Also worth to mention that i have slow healer trait. And this happeed month ago ( precisly 32 days ago). I already know stages of healing process ( 1st pain and severe damage. After slight pain and minor damage after no pain and after few days cured - at least this is valid for broken legs - yeah i does that alot). So does anyone know how long this ribs will take to cure? Is there anywhere available any sort of calculations ( like base injury - first aid lvl - comfrey etc) so i can count how long this poor dude needs to take stuff easy?

  6. Hello, So i decided to put this small simple guide of what i found out about mechanic skills. I was playing with this on few playthroughs trying to figure out how skill points are added and what is the fastes way to lvl it up. This is just my personal impression about mechanics- if there is anything incorrect in this post let me know - and how i usually approach this in game. Few things to consider: 1. Skill points are assigned to item per car not to opration itself (so you cannot just readd the same tyre over and over again to lvl it up. It works more like - this car has this tyre, when you move it to another car it will give you point once, but repeating this opration will not give you small amount of points) 2. You needs lvl 2 mechanics to hotwire cars and lvl 4 to repair engine. higher lvls are to fix different type of cars (heavy duty and after sport). 3. You can do basic operations on heavy duty or sport car without any mechanic skills if you read magazine of how to do it. 4. Tools you need - wrench, lug wrench, jack and screwdriver Now for fast leveling: 1. Get 2 standard cars in safe location (you will need keyes for them and if you play six months later you will need live battery and gas) 2. Swap seats around (from one car to another one) 3. Swap headlights (yest they give some points as well, so if you have some other light bulbs from radios you can use them as well to get some more points) 4. Remove tyres and swap breaks and suspensions 5. Swap windows and doors around 6. Swap trunk and hood around 7. Lastlsy swap windshields Those two cars (if you have book for lvl 1-2 mechanic) should lvl you up to Lv2 allowing you to hotwire cars. From now on is downhill. Just get one more car - ergo you have 4 more operations (you just have to keep track of this). What i mean by that is if you have 2 cars you can swap part from car on to car 2 and thats it. If you have 3 cars you can swap parts: from car 1 to car 2 and 3 (2operations) from car 2 to car 1 and 3 (2operations) from car 3 to car 1 and 2 (2operations) giving total of 6 operations instead of 2. one more car and you have 12 operations: car 1 - to car 2,3,4 (3 operations) car 2 - to car 1,3,4 (3 operations) car 3 - to car 1,2,4 (3 operations) car 4 - to car 1,2,3 (3 operations) This should allow you to get to lvl 4 easly having just 4 cars in place (and 2 keys, othr 2 you can hotwire) After that you can drop cars on a side and loot engine and fix most of the cars slowly lelving this up. Hope it helps
  7. I think replacing the same part on the same spot will give you just much less xp - i didn't test it over few days though. With two cars ypu can get 2lvl within 2 days ( ever higher lvl take bit longer but i got lv4 within 5 days with 3 cars spending on mechanics 4-5 h daily)

    Compass Item

    yes. or give cords to Map with location. Due to fact that view does not move at the moment (fixed camera) having aditional item which shows you where you are is kind of pointless but looking at new graphics i would not be surprised if for new releases be possibility to rotate camera - then compass will be very useful item to have.

    Vitamin pills

    Hi, They are but they reduce very small amount of fatigue. You would need to take lik 3-5 of them to get to higher moodlet lvl. I use them.

    Fridge Room/Food in winter

    Hello, Will it be possible for food to freeze (or at least chill) when left outside during winter? It might be nice alternative to fridge when is -10 outside (plus most students does that during winter in real life. hang food outside in plastic bag) also (you know i really want basements lol - i can wait) - maybe it would be possible to - using shovel and concrete - "build" some hole in the ground as storage (something like hand made cooler - not to make stuff freeze but to keep it in lower temperature, expanding spoilage time) - plus this whole can be used later to build smoker to make beef jerky or smoked fish.

    How to stop grass/bushes from growing?

    In my opinion if it is growing on crops it is a bug ( as i don't think that was initial intention) you can create bug report just please be patient. Devs see bugs there but sometimes doesn't respond cause are busy with new animations. I would still make this bug report as it will be easier for devs later to track and fix it. Try to use workarpund for now if possible ( or if you have a sack and shovel dig and pour dirt before planting crops to make it all brown - this should help)
  12. Hello, Is there a way to refil propane tanks? when feature to remove car wreckage by propane torch has been added i constantly need to look after if i do no run out of propane (and it makes it very hard to lvl up). Is there a way to refil propane tank on gas station for example?

    How to stop grass/bushes from growing?

    1/2. There are certain bushes that you cannot remove and they will grow on crops ( i think it is a bug). To remive them try few times to remove crops ajd re add it ( i got rid of some like that). When crops are growing nothing else should grow there. And you can remove long grass ( by hands) and bushes ( by axe). Also before you put crops try to remove grass from tile - if something is growin on tile already. They do not grow on woden floor. 3. Yes you can. Also it is good way to manage crops which don't need max water and for growing over winter ( didn't test it yet as but apparently it is legit way to do so)

    Sound Markers Pings

    Hello. Maybe subtitles for common noises be beneficial in that case?
  17. Hello, I mentioned this in other post but decided to add as new topic in case it will get overlooked. So when you hit a zombie by car (don't kill it) and run over him and par kthe car, zombie will be laying there "alive" (made me giggle to say that zombie is alive) with not action until you move car away. Moodlet will appear every time you come close to this car saying that there is zombie near by. It is not big issue but might be worth to force this zombie to become crawler to crawl out from this car?
  18. Hello, So this bug is with game since i think beginning. i noticed this a year ago - i checked again yesterday - it is stil there. In warehouse here: https://map.projectzomboid.com/#0.5589827780400132,0.28721902942263716,445.5963467848301 on first floor on south east corner 1 tile from wall there is floating black small bin - you can get to it by building floor around inside this warehouse. I had inner conflict to report is as i just love it and use it as "secret" in game, but since you guys tid up animations maybe it can be removed as well?

    You can grow it but i don't think they will yeld anything. I mean from nov to jan it will defo not give you any food. I managed to get some cabbage in the middle of feb though. Did you check if you can have any food from it? That would be interesting to know ☺
  20. Maybe adding R.click option to inventory place where are bags could be solution for this kind of problems? Like when you come close to this corpse - in inventory windows there will be icon of zombie and shows his clothes - if we could r.click on that icon and grab it from there - it would be workaround to grab for containers behinf obstacles (like trees).

    Game "suddenly" fails to load

    I had this issue few times. what i did is: 1. Save savegame files in different location 2. uninstall Project zomboid from steam 3. remove all temp files from %temp% 4. remove all "project zomboid" leftovers 5. clean registry (using ccleaner for example) - this is like general housekeeping dunno if game saves anything in there. don't think so 6. restart machine (do not shutdown - win 10 has fast boot option, when you shut doen it actually kind of hibernate machine) 7. install PZ again and check

    Chance of breaking legs is very low.

    If you get "lucky" and "thick skin" trait it lower the chances i think (or maybe just a "lucky"). You know that breaking legs is carpentry course in this game? i personally hate it especially with slow healer trait.
  24. Ok i might get smashed in the face for this but can you take this car and drive in different place? i had occasionaly zombies "stuck" under the car (hit by car, fall on the floor, parked on top of it) and zombie laying on he floor waiting to get up - it cannot (because of the car) so it is just laying there. when you drive off it will get up. I have seen in my game similar thing happened (with panic moodlet) and every time i checked there was some living zombie under the car that could not get out. I think it might be good idea to add to game that if zombie will stuck under the car it will become crawler and crawl out from it (as far i;m aware crawler can move under the car). Please let me know if this is case (i'm curious why something like that happen).
