    123Imirish reacted to Etsamaru in Does PZ really even need cars?   
    I don't think cars keep you safe at all, if you think about it, all the zombies and other crashed cars would make it almost impossible to get around, imagine if you go the car running but all the cars all over made it impossible to get anywhere. Also you probably wouldn't know how to hotwire, that's not common knowledge for most people, and the likeliness of keys being in the ignition is small.
    Most cars you would find would be limited in gas, and in maneuverability, how would you get around anywhere with all the other cars parked on the streets? Real cars don't do too well off road, and most cars are going to be on the road. You could get stuck in mud, pop a tire, blow the engine, attract zombies hit a tree. 
    Cars would make the game MORE dangerous. Possibility of Zombies IN CARS. On Cars, Under Cars. Getting stuck.
    If you hit something while driving you can injure yourself, head injury's back injuries, anything. Hit a zombie would probably still jolt you, hitting a horde would definitely damage your car. Hitting another car? You could potentially kill yourself, or make yourself bleed very badly.
    Oh you want to drive through town? Where are you getting out of that car, because I'm sure you just lured the horde right towards you, on no you got blocked by cars. You could go off road but that might ruin your car and you might hit some trees, if you drive back you are dead. I guess you have to get out of your car now. Oh the zombies are close no time to get the stuff out of the trunk. 
    Cars are really only OP on empty and mostly empty roads, and without realisitc consequences. I imagine you would be running over metal, nails, broken glass, pipes, going off road could murder your tires, getting stuck in ditches, mud, really if done right cars could almost be a deathtrap waiting to happen.

    123Imirish reacted to RobertJohnson in RELEASED Build 26   
    Hello kind fellows !
    Online Multiplayer! 3D Models for characters! (Some very old systems may need to turn them off) NEW COOKING SYSTEM ! FISHING, YAY ! Tons of new items (mainly food), here's some example :Pickles BellPepper Mustard Peach CakeBatter ... New icons for some items. New stab weapon : the hunting knife ! You can know choose to split a pot of soup (or stew.. Woops, spoiler) in 2 or 4 bowl. Added a hunger reduction selection in recipe, for example now Butter;15 mean you gonna use 15 hunger reduction of the butter (and not all the butter). Change on food poisoning : Poison food will now have a poison power (bleach is more deadly than poison ivy, etc.) By drinking bleach (...) you'll feel pain pretty fast, with a slight health lose, then after 1-2h, sickness. After the sickness, you'll start to lose health, a full bottle of bleach will kill you. But if you have some food poisoning from a recipe, you can try to eat a lot, stay well fed and you can make it ! (and then reclaim vengeance on the chef who did that !) Added context-menu command to chop down trees. Sledgehammer will lose condition when used to destroy things. [MP] Password will now be hashed in the data base. A ton of other stuff we've forgotten. We'll make a more comprehensive changelist from 23->26 soon. [bALANCE]
    Changed the weight of some item :Frying Pan from 2 to 1. Pot of soup from 6 to 4. Food benefit will now stay a bit longer (more realistic !). Lowered the chance of finding a Spiffo (sorry ). [bUGFIX]
    Fixed the cabbage icon. Some fix in the crafted item sprite (sometime they bug when reload). Fixed the help text in admin command (if you misstyped something, now the help text will be correct). [MP] You can now use character ' in your username. [MP] Fixed zombie corpse with no item on them. [MP] Fixed safety toggle sometimes not synced. [MP] Even if DisplayUserName is off, you can now see the safety skull. Disable stencil buffer in 3D model FBO.  Added checkGLError() calls to get more info about what fails when creating FBOs. It seems Intel GPUs often don't support the combined depth/stencil images.  Set SandboxVars (Lua variable) from SandboxOptions after loading map_sand.bin. (Issue #000325) . There is a Lua function SandboxOptions.load() but it only loads some of the variables. Fixed fire issues. . When an IsoThumpable was destroyed by fire, it could still be interacted with. Print an error if there is no spawn-point table for the current map. Fixed female pants/skirt glitch when not wearing a top. Fixed RecipeManager bug calculating the age of created items. Fixed 3D animation glitch when weapon attack animation finishes. Fixed a big hitch when first seeing a large group of 3D zombies. . Borrow the OpenGL context from the RenderThread only one time when setting the zombie models. Fixed an old map-streaming bug. . It's possible to have a chunk scheduled to be saved/reused and loaded at the same time.  This can happen if you step over a chunk boundary and then back again quickly.  What was happening was the chunk woul... Make walking in GhostMode approx 1/2 slow as sprinting. . This is used in multiplayer.  Always moving at warp speed makes it hard for admins to walk along ledges etc. Reduced garbage creation and with 3D models.  Don't update model lights in the render thread. .  Change current animation after switching weapons while aiming. (Issue #000315) Fixed smash-a-window becoming open-a-window when initially in attack stance.  (Issue #000314) Added custom maps in multiplayer. . Since custom maps are handled through the modding system, mods are needed in multiplayer. In serverOptions.ini, "Mods" is a semicolon-separated list of mod id names.     Mods=BedfordFalls;AnotherMod;YetAn... Fixed IsoGridSquare.EnsureSurroundNotNull() not respecting the map bounds. Mods can load custom .pack and .tiles files. . In a mod's mod.info file: pack=NAME : means load media/texturepacks/NAME.pack tiledef=NAME NUMBER means load media/NAME.tiles There may be multiple pack= and tiledef= lines in each mod.info Walk next to a tent before sleeping in it. Fixes to ISBuildingObject. Added "Destroy Floors" command.  Only allowed at z > 0. . People wanted this to correct carpentry errors (and fight griefers who block stairs with floors). Fixed LastStand bugs. Fixed tents.  ISBuildingObject changes. . Tents use both front and back tiles and can face either direction. Increase the distance that Shift-clicking toggles curtains. Darkened localToBuilding lights a bit. Call GameClient.getCustomModData() when needed. Fixed RecalcAllWithNeighbours() not recalculating all the squares it needed to. . Stumbled upon this while doing the chop-down-tree action.  Added chop-down-tree timed action. . Fixed 'hours survived' getting reset in MP. Throw an exception when loading IsoWorldInventoryObjects when the item type is unknown (same as ItemContainer.load() does) Discard IsoWorldInventoryObjects that use obsolete item types. Fixed not being able to sprint N/S/W/E in GhostMode (Issue #000297) . If the amount of movement is > 1 in any direction then testCollideAdjacent() returns true. Fixed GhostMode not being set when admin joins a server.  Don't drawDebugChunkMap() unless Core.bDebug is set. (Issue #000296) ISDestroyStuffAction: sync the breakdoor sound with the sledgehammer swing animation.  Sync sound in MP too. Fixed ambient door/window lights "popping" when turning. Fixes to ISTakeWaterAction. Save the game after converting to a new world version. Redid the food-aging system. Don't print "timeout downloading zip" in console once the download has finished. Free 3D model slots before return-to-menu. . There seemed to be stale zombies and players in ModelManager.Contains. Display the weapon condition, cooking progress, and drainable-amount-remaining as progress bars. . Also moved the "Contains:" recipe line below the item name, and fixed images overlapping the Contains: label. Also fixed the InventoryPane co...

Fixed ISInventoryPage using invalid container with ItemPicker. . Also set IsoGameCharacter.inventory to "explored". Fixed local/global chat not using the desired key bindings. Fixed typo in SuburbsDistributions.lua (affected mechanic shop) Fix #2 for IsoCell.getOrCreateGridSquare on the server. Added GLBufferObject to hide whether the ARB or core version of glGenBuffers etc is used. . Some people get a "glGenBuffers unsupported" error with the 3D models, which is odd since that is part of the OpenGL 1.5 API. Allow spawnpoints at z > 0.  Fixed return-to-menu bug that spawned new players at z > 0. .

Fixed see-through-walls on z > 0 along chunk boundaries. . It was possible to see through the west walls of the 3-story grey office building in Westpoint.  This was due to there being no squares on the other side of the wall. Fixed chunky lighting. . I set out to fix non-smooth lighting on exterior walls at z > 0.  Turns out this fixes chunky lighting inside rooms as well. Fixed quoting problem with projectzomboid.sh (Linux demo won't launch). Fixed IsoWindow properties.  Allow right-clicking on IsoThumpable walls that are s or e of the player. . When thumpable walls are "transparent" it wasn't possible to interact with them via the right-click menu.  No plaster, paint, etc was possible.

The code I commented out already happens near line 331. Fixed 3D player not facing the direction of movement when walking a path. Fixed light sources not being removed when out of bounds. Fixed pistol clips disappearing on Normal/Hardcore reloading difficulty. Prevent item duplication in MP due to delaying grabbing items from the ground. Fixed 3D animations not being the same duration as the sprite animation. . If you chopped a tree with an axe with the 3D player model, you could hear that the chopping wasn't in sync with the animation. IsoSprite.update() does "def.Frame +=... Improved  blood splatter rendering / logic .  Server handles the -debuglog commandline option. Taking/spilling dirt removes blend_grassoverlay tiles and attached sprites (blend tiles). [TRANSLATION]

    I understand where you are coming from but you have to understand the following points,
    The roads will be to littered with road to make them something you use an loot runs, a lot of roads will be impassable in cars,
    Petrol, when other items are implemented, will have a variety of uses, but unless you have a petrol siphon. Also most cars would be running low on petrol, many would have been kept running as their owners fled.
    GTA, although a great game, does not have realistic cars, you can be dropped from Mt. Chiliad and If you land on 4 wheels you are A ok.

If you would like to see more maps that are based off video games and fantasy worlds, then fine delete my empty thread. But if you understand that creating a representational map like the one in PZ that resembles the real world takes ALOT of time and planning, then please be kind enough to let my tread stay so i can gradually implement images of the map.

    I'm all for cars, particularly when the map gets larger.Build a few walls, plop a car alongside, rig up a tent, Bam. Reasonably well protected safehouse.
    I'd LOVE to see some form of small obtainable or player crafted vehicle (i.e: handcart, motor-trike or car with steel wheels) that would run on the train tracks in game. For efficient, long distance travel, nothing beats the low friction of steel on steel. Of course, moving a train off the tracks is significantly harder than moving a wrecked car out of the road, but you can't have everything
    Having some form of vehicle that requires care and maintenance, that opens up  a range of possibilities for the player... We really need this. Scrounging for tools, supplies and skill books to repair that banged up army truck and turn it into an ad-hoc tank... Think of the gameplay possibilities

    We'll have generators and stuff eventually, so it won't be the only source of power, but since solar is silent and runs on the sun and not a finite supply of fuel it would still be a pretty desirable location.
    Although it does beg the question of what happened to the person living there.  If they were so prepared for the apocalypse they'd have a much better chance at survival than everyone else and they'd certainly have no reason to leave.
    If you ask me it'd be nice to see a house like this in SP or MP, but it should already be mostly picked clean by the bandits that must have come straight to the best-stocked house in the city, killed the owner and taken everything they could carry.  Remember that the start of the game does not coincide with the start of the zombie outbreak - especially in MP - so it's reasonable to expect that some looting of high-value targets has already taken place.
    You'd still have a good setup with the solar power, farmland, and maybe a well on the property, so there's a reason to want to live in the house, but there aren't so many resources there that it becomes everyone's first and only destination.
