  1. Koester, putting aside your colossal attitude for a moment, since your streamer friends may well be people we'd like to help out. Does these stutters only happen when recording? and what capture / streaming software are you using?
  2. Hey! Sorry am finding the question a little vague, in the sense that our plan for the most part is pretty transparent. The things left on the list (after multiplayer is reintegrated) are hunting, NPCs and story mode. With other stuff that is more fluid and depending on what feels is needed as builds progress, but they are the main biggies. In terms of overall vision, outside the planned story mode which will be a more narrative experience, I guess it's essentially to create the ultimate zombie apocalypse 'story generator' (story generator being like Rimworld, Dwarf Fortress, Crusader Kings 2 where the game has enough complexity, variety and possibility that the gameplay becomes like a unique story every time that people can recount to each other and that story be as unique to them as possible.) Essentially a Walking Dead episode generator where every time you play you have an interesting story that develops through the course of the game. NPCs will be a big factor in this. As to details on our plans for NPCs etc, we've got a new rule where we avoid talking about them too much until they are planned for the next build in dev, since we've had problems with early hyping in the past, but our plans for them have been spoken about in the past and its all still valid. Am sure others will hook you up with old Mondoids talking about our plans.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. We may strive to be realistic, but allowing players to go a month without food would, for the most part, remove food as a practical concern in the game particularly for the majority of players who probably don't survive more than a month or two. It's one of the situations we need to prioritise gameplay over realism. As for foraging tiredness, perhaps this needs rebalancing, but comparing it to fishing, a renowned relaxation pastime doesn't really seem fair comparison. I'm pretty sure hunting for berries in the woods would get tiring a ton sooner than chilling beside a lake drinking beers and waiting for a fish to bite.

    Zed Clients

    In case you didn't know, we're vastly majority white in the development team. If you took from that statement that we don't value our own lives and don't think our own lives matter, then am afraid you took the wrong thing away from it. If what you say about Belarus is true then that is wonderful to hear and we could all learn a lot from Belarus. Sadly its not the case elsewhere, particularly in America where all this stuff is going down at the moment, as such that statement is something a lot of people are saying in solidarity and its unfortunate that its somehow so contentious to some.
  5. huh very good point there. something we'll look into but I doubt for 41.
  6. Thanks for the suggestions will make sure the mp team see them! though a core aspect of our planned zombie networking is the client who zombies are chasing will have (server validated) authority thus eliminating latency completely where its a concern.
  7. It's something we're not actively promising, and certainly not pre-1.0, but its very much something we still want to do.
  8. While we do have some reservations about streaming platforms in general (the death of modding, ownership of media you purchase concerns etc) GeForce Now leveraging already owned Steam games that you can still install and play natively, and the way they have gone about it we have no issue with and would definitely be open to considering it if approached. No Stadia tho over my dead body etc. * * Unless in future the market has already gone in such a direction to such an extent we have absolutely no choice if we want to make any money, in case that statement ever bites me in the ass
  9. This code was on the 'Creative' branch which made it possible with some significant changes to how the map worked for the Creative mode. However that branch, due to anims and npc pressure of focus from community anticipation didn't get any time put into it and has spent years going stale with years old code. The prospect of merging in creative at this point would be an act of madness since the code has diverged so much, so this stuff would sadly need retransplanting at the point on a fresh branch, 'started from scratch with the advantage of the old code for reference' when we started working on it again. As such this stuff could never have been released as it was entwined in the creative branch which required a ton more work and had no time for it. It could potentially be done again in future, but the video you see does not represent anything usable at this point.
  10. BALANCE - Increased dirt on character. FIXES - Fixed some recipes not being able to use the new garden saw. - Fixed exceptions due to missing eye-shadow textures. - Fixed the makeup ui not working with different-sized fonts. - Fixed the makeup ui not working with a controller. - Fixed the Lua debugger Errors ui not showing exceptions in one case. - Fixed occasional Lua error when right-clicking on windows. - Fixed odd position of bags on the ground when dropped from hands. - Fixed Blooo (again again again) by making the default DisplayName for items is now the Module.Type of that item, making it easier to debug. - Fixed the "leg kick" when performing some timed actions (eating, smoking, etc).
  11. to encourage flashlight use - no one ever uses flashlights because its perfectly able to see even in houses at night. Using flashlights is cool and atmospheric and something a person would do irl, and also comes with risk/benefit tradeoff so is an interesting gameplay mechanic that until now has never been required to be used.
  12. 41.35 patch notes NEW Experimental bag holding - Feedback please! Added make up: - You need either a make up foundation, make up eyes shadows or lipstick. - Make up available will depend on the type you selected. (i'll change it so it'll check for every make up material in your inventory, so if you have lipstick but click on makeup foundation you'll see lipstick make up in the list) - You also need to be in front of a mirror or have a mirror item in your inventory. - Clown, Skull, Brave heart, multiple lipstick & eyes shadow color... Experimental lighting changes - Feedback please! - Vision cone is 25% darker. - Lamppost lighting are way brighter to counter this. - Increased character's lighting to counter balance the darker vision cone.

  14. yup if there are sufficient trees / plants around and far enough away from urban build up you should be able to forage anywhere
  15. this will probably be further balanced a few in the team said the same thing but we didn't want to block the release due to it.
