    Scrap metal

    Does anyone have a solid source of generating scrap metal? I mean a particular item to breakdown? I am swimming in metal sheets and bars from warehouses and breaking stuff down but I have hardly any scrap metal

    Personal Challenges

    Not sure if you would class it as a challenge but I play every game (6 months later) with unemployed, unfit, weak and obese
  4. I was testing fuel burning times on a campfire against the numbers that are taken from media\lua\server\Camping\camping_fuel.lua. For example it says that a log should burn for 4 hours but I was getting about 2 hours. I tested this with the other fuel sources listed and I would always get half or around about that value. I found the offending piece of code in media\lua\server\Camping\SCampfireSystem.lua at line 165 and 166 the same function is added to the events (the function that seems to reduce the burn times every ten minutes) Events.EveryTenMinutes.Add(EveryTenMinutes) When I comment out one of those calls then the burn times become consistent with camping_fuel.lua. I doubt it was intentional, but if it is then ignore this plz. This is on the current IWBUMS build

    how does the temperature system work?

    The warmest clothes in the vanilla (IWBUMS) are padded pants and padded jacket. Again in Vanilla, if you are in winter (6 months later) then you need to pay attention to the cold moodle, it was start with chilly, then cold, then freezing, then Hyperthermia. Going inside a house will provide warmth, but it may not be enough. Look at the arrows on the moodle, if you are cold and you have 2/3 downward arrows you need to at least get inside to warm up. If you still have the arrows then you need to start a fire (camp fire kit) , the more wood and logs the warmer it will be. If you are freezing and going inside doesn't give you green arrows up then again start a fire, if you don't deal with it you will become hyperthemic. If you are are already hyperthermic, then start the fire and warm up immediately. In Winter its always best to make sure you have a campfire kit handy (unless you have a indoor fire you can use) and a supply of wood (so an axe for logs or breakdown furniture with tools) I am unware if a beg provides any warmth, I am inclined to say it doesn't but sometimes I warm up when I sleep but this is probably just the temp getting warmer

    Wrong way down a one way streeeet!

    Apologies if that has been asked and answered before, but will stamp and push/attack with weapon be on different hotkeys in the animation build?

    Reloaded

    The inventory update is very juicy and something I had hoped for for a long time. I hope it can lead to something like my very first suggestion on these forms many years ago, a tool belt and weapons holster with a quick draw keybind. Looking good

    Barricading with metal sheet from backpack

    its not really a bug, its just coded that way in the lua. Some of the tasks use the command to check if the item is in your bag and then triggers the transfer call, while others dont. I ended up making a mod that altered the lua to make them all consistant. I suspect it will be cleaned up in the later builds once the big stuff is done

    How to stop grass/bushes from growing?

    Are you using any mods? Ive never had bushes or grass grow on my crops so not sure about that one. in answer to point 3, yes you can. If you want them to grow inside the house you have to water them manually (Carrots are actually better grown this way). Alternatively you can put the soil on the roof or build a platform and they will grow fine up there

    Red Hand Gang

    I wouldn't say its that OP, more often than not you are just in a single room with only 1 exit, the door. So you can become trapped quite easily by a horde.

    Dark as night while raining

    This also happens a lot to me, I generally have to hope there is lightning when it rains or I cant see anything. This is survival mode on IWBUMS and the negative traits I take are weak, obese, unfit.
  13. I'll just be cheeky and ask 4 in the hope one might get answered Will we get the chance to ride a horse!??? Will the forests mechanics ever change to allow it to be more easily traversed and used more as a way of sneaking past zombies Will we see more combat mechanics? i.e space bar to foot stamp, alt+ space to stab the zombie with a knife in the second hand. Will we ever get the chance to crawl so zombies can't see us in buildings when we don't have sheets on the windows etc
  14. I play survival mode, I take the unemployed, obese and weak and I don't find it that hard to survive. In this build i found my survival rate when up when I started to utilise the space bar stamp function, its so OP and generally played a bit more cautiously. I definitely die more in this build (mainly my fault) and I think it has some problems with too many zombies in the first few days (mainly from a RP point of view) but I wouldn't say it was very hard once you get the hang of it, but since we are playing the game with missing features I don't think it matters too much. I just had to play the first few days a bit different to how I previously did.
  15. I have never taken lucky and I have never had trouble finding multiple axe's
