  1. [Admin - I started this in General Discussion but it seems better here - please remove from General Discussion] I logged out a character who was in *perfect health* and unencumbered in his base. I logged in a few hours later and his health was terminal - no wounds, no moodles (except damage one) and unencumbered. He lasted a few seconds before keeling over (did not re-animate). Later character was locked safely in a room, I lost connection to the server and logged in less than TEN minutes later and he's in critical health - no wounds, - I ate and he recovered. Finally a character gets scratched but is healed to OK. Played a few hours, and he logged out as OK (took screen shot) but came back at Slightly Wounded. Eating didn't help...then he got queasy. So he's infected, in spite of having reached OK. Is the game "changing its mind" when I log off? Reaching OK still means you're not infected, right? Am I not seeing the proper information, i.e. he has a wound or damage from weather (vehicle collision damage is turned off), poison, whatever but it's not being displayed? Srsly, I've played 5 years and never logged in to a mysteriously damaged character...or I forgot.
  2. Healthy Character Logs Out, Logs in Terminally Damaged

    ??? When did temperature finally start working? Even if it did, how would it explain logging out in perfect health and logging in dying?
  3. Healthy Character Logs Out, Logs in Terminally Damaged

    The first time, he was in perfect HEALTH (health) and simply "died" i.e. he did not become a zombie. No wounds, no sick or thirsty moodles. No generator, fireplace was out ( I haven't heard of them causing harmful fumes - just covering *all* possibilities). I always take weak stomach (whatever it's called) but I also never eat bad/uncooked food or drink bad water. Didn't have the Hypochondriac trait either. The second time, I got booted off the server while he was chilling out in a farmhouse - again he was in perfect health. It took me about ten minutes to get back on and, when I logged on, he was in critical health. I had driven there, but the car (outside) wasn't running. Eating got got him back to OK and he continued on with his adventures. Here we go, w/ a twist- 3rd time. Logged in while writing this, toon was Ok. Drove off to loot and got scratched. Got to OK so continued one, looted for awhile, drove back home, did a little fighting, took a screenshot of toon being OK and logged off. Logged back in and he was at Slight...but couldn't didn't get above it and then got queasy. He shouldn't be infected after getting to OK. =\ Anyway, that's different than the other two time - *definitely* the second time - but it seems like his injuries are delayed or something until he logs out. Getting scratched kinda complicated troubleshooting but I guess that I needed to know *that* as well, i.e. that I can recover from a scratch but might be screwed over when I log back in. Thanks man. =)
  4. I logged out a character who was in perfect help and unencumbered in his base. I logged in a few hours later and his health was terminal - no wounds, no moodles (except damage one) and unencumbered. He lasted a few seconds. Very weird. Then, a later character has closed himself off in some random farm's bathroom (again in perfect health) but I lost connection to the server while looking at the map in a browser. I log in less than ten minutes later and he's in critical health - no wounds, no reason why he'd be in critical health I was able to eat a lot and he recovered. What's up with that - I'm pretty certain that I've never had that happen in 5 years.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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]
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.)
  15. 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.
