    Light Drinker Trait

    Oh wow, that's a blast from the past - I forgot all about that trait. It really was a freebie. Even if your toon is illiterate a lot of food adds happiness so you don't need booze.
  2. OMG, it would be wild if stoves set stuff like gas and ammo off. If someone found your base and stuff stored in an oven...

    Fracture Clinic - Broken Thigh

    I'm curious if the pain moodle is gone and if there's any noticeable improvement i.e. if the healing process is even underway. =\ I've been lucky w/ not going much beyond two weeks, but I don't know if I've broken a femur before (and kept my character). I'll have weight on my mind the next time I'm building an upper level.

    Fracture Clinic - Broken Thigh

    30 days seems like a ludicrously long time - especially if you kept well fed. Is there *any* improvement? You don't still have a pain moodle, do you? I'm pretty sure that you should be able to kinda run at the end of a month. I've always had to deal for about 2 weeks maximum (haven't had a fracture + slow healing though) but have seen a *few* reports of 1-2 months. =\

    Favorite Foods to Cook

    Initially baking bread because I get my first few cooking quickly and then I'm happy when I have enough from my garden and traps to make stew.

    How to kill off a large horde with only melee?

    A quarter staff is from the Hydrocraft mod - it's made from a tree branch.

    How to kill off a large horde with only melee?

    You're not going to kill 140 zeds w/ a machete - you have to break up the horde. Start luring hunks of it away in another direction and then continue to split them up until it's manageable. In small groups the machete will be great because it's quieter than an axe.

    RELEASED: IWBUMS Build 40.18

    Alas. I can still play IWBUMS w/ a bunch of mods but now I want to see a storm or some other big weather and see if my machine tanks. lol

    RELEASED: IWBUMS Build 40.18

    Is anyone else having trouble playing the IWBUMS on 32bit? I actually have to lower the Xms/x to play. I can play the current version w/ a lot of mods but I have to be careful w/ IWBUMS or I'll get a outofmemory error before world is loading (solo or server) Are the weather effects much more demanding on machines? (I'll be upgrading my OS but not for months.)

    Most Interesting Deaths

    It's a stupid one, but it was educational: chopped up by shirtless Frenchmen a few years ago. I was on a server living downtown in a few fortified buildings in Bedford w/ the stairs knocked out - good number of players and factions. One day, 2 French dudes armed w/ axes w/ no shirts starting tearing up the place and they eventually started chopping into my fortifications. Note that I'm upstairs w/ a full ORGM arsenal. So, I actually climb downstairs and open up w/ a weak handgun *near them.* So of course I'm axed to death. I log in w/ my alt after letting a buddy know that I'm being attacked. My alt spawns in, runs to the base, climbs up, and confronts the bad guys w/ a shotgun...*click* Forgot to reload. SMH Alt is axed to death. My buddy finally arrives but...he forgot an f'in gun. One French dude died from my shots but came back so that they could trash my rooftop farm, crap everywhere (an awful mod from years ago), and attract a horde to surround the place. I was able to get back in and thought the whole thing was pretty funny, pathetic as it was.
  11. [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.
  12. 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.

    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

    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.

    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?
