  1. Mmm...no. Cigarettes are needed for the smoking trait which I often take. Yes, if withdrawal gets bad enough anti-depressants can be used, but cigarettes have a specific purpose. Maybe, just maybe, the poll could have been designed better? To have rolling pins and butter knives on there at all is just ludicrous imo.
  2. Cigarettes or beta blockers - I never need anti-depressants. Finding a brand axe can be nice but also a bummer if I already have plenty of axes and I'm loaded down w/ loot- I usually play w/ the Bedford map. It's a tough thing more me to leave behind 'cause of the times when axes *were* rare. lol
  3. The Super Survivors! mod is quite good imo. The NPCs can add a lot, whether it's a bunch of survivors that you're trying to keep alive, or hostile bandits shooting at you. Now and again a survivor might have a fire bomb - most of them have guns. So, you might be happily coming back from a looting trip to your base and there'll be a raging gun battle against a horde of zeds w/ buildings on fire. Good times.
  4. When did you join pz

    I started up Minecraft in 2012 or 2013 and one of the little yellow messages said "Play Project Zomboid!" So I Googled it and played whatever one the zeds look like big headed aliens) a few times then went on to 1.5. It was fun watching the game develop: invisible fire w/ swaying dancing zombies, crops teleporting all over the map, and some just psycho versions. Was it the 2.9.9.X that would just get crazy? There was one where you were just horded from all sides as soon as you logged in. Lol
  5. Regeneration of resources in nature.

    OK, TY. I knew that I'd been unable to fish at some point, but then I couldn't remember what season it had happened in.
  6. Regeneration of resources in nature.

    [I didn't see a need to start a new thread - will move it if necessary] So, does the "zoning system" affect aquatic life, i.e. you *can* fish out a lake? I'm a little unclear from my skimming of the above. If so, how large are these zones? If the small lake at the Campgrounds East of Dixie runs out of fish, will the much larger lake at 12602x8816 run out as well?
  7. Bedford Falls V3 (Steam Workshop)

    Oh yeah, I am constantly on that site: I can't play without it. Lol. Anyway, there's this whole road network to the North of Bedford Falls. part of it connects to the road exiting/entering BF along the military base.
  8. RELEASED: Build 38.22

    Sorry about that. A developer on the server I play on provided two .json files (....something with Java? I was trying to follow but, yeah.) to put in the PZ folder. I also cleaned my Steam cache just for the hell of it. It took a couple of tries (likely user error) but the game worked again.
  9. RELEASED: Build 38.22

    I'm still not getting in: on solo it hangs after I hit "click to start" and in MP I "join game" but never get the "click to start" option. Gonna try a few things... [Fixed]
  10. Bedford Falls V3 (Steam Workshop)

    Hey there, Bedford is easily my favorite map (except for the lack of wood stoves )but I can't stay there all the time. :*( Is there a map somewhere of the road system that leaves the Bedford map near the military base i.e. from 13694 9897? I need to find a semi-easy way to get to VS.
  11. Dead Pixels: OUTBREAK Build 35 Restart 12/20/2016

    Harder server settings honor the spirit of the game, i.e. "this is how you died." I appreciate it when you mitigate the damage of my recklessness and...well, just an unfinished (abandoned?) game. I try to keep that rare. Fortunately I can also count on other players to bail me out or lend a hand. I try to do the same: I try never to have to little not to share. Paying attn to other players (of various abilities) and learning HOW they're surviving is much more useful than moping and wow, you just might have to alter your playing style. Srsly, if *I* can stay alive (let's not talk about lately) it's just *not* that f'in hard.
  12. Dead Pixels: OUTBREAK Build 35 Restart 12/20/2016

    Folks show up again all the time - you know where I hang out Damon: drop by! (No srsly, still too many zeds) New folks should definitely drop by: yeah, the server isn't set on "easy" but the admin both sane and drama free AND new (or really beat up) folks are well taken care of in the PVE areas. Cool people outside of 'em too. Sure, SOME of 'em might be shoot at you but hey, zombie apocalypse. (You might even make friends w/ em later anyway.)
  13. we need the old servers back

    Aw, a lot of people won't want to play w/o mods because of slow development over 5 years. I can't - I can't even tolerate SP w/o the the Survivors (NPC) mod. I was going to suggest "The Good Ol' Days" but then I saw that they had transmission off. Still, although I think that you're in a minority, there surely have to be only folks that want vanilla + transmission. Maybe the developers would consider a second "official" server but don't count on that! (very busy) The PZ community can come through though. Maybe change the title of your post/or repost to "Looking for server w/ no mods but w/ transmission?" Something like that.
  14. Dead Pixels: OUTBREAK Build 35 Restart 12/20/2016

    Oh yeah, I was following it closely: not much point in playing until it's done and didn't want to be late to loot specific places/find a base etc. I kinda had to schedule it into IRL so I'd want to know about delays. It was so cool seeing players come back after a long time. So folks were obviously paying attention. I got to play w/ a buddy from another server for the first time in more than a year...years? As usual it's a great choice of mods and, especially maps so there's room for everyone. Oh. The new fancy books. Those I hate. Good job Paul (and Jab) and thanks again.
  15. Survivors Mod

    How did those dude get up on the roof? Lol I wonder if they had guns at some point because of the dead zeds in the street. I'd ask if anyone of them wanted to join but...
