Guys.. I'm alive on day 13, this is the longest I've ever survived (I usually commit suicide by feeding myself to hordes because I'm a sadistic son of a bitch), and I'm really trying to survive this time. So I'm set up in the town centre in West Point (inside the Food Market store or whatever it's called, I'm on the second floor apartment.), pretty dangerous place to live, however it's been going quite well, I'm looted the surrounding buildings (and taken wood from a lot of doors), and I've started doing some construction in the car park round the back of the building. I've also cracked open the gun store just out of town, however I don't need the ammo right now (I took the fireaxe though). Things are getting really tense, I have a genuine sense of dread when playing now, since I feel quite 'comfortable' where I am, it's TOO quiet. I have the sense that a horde will tear through town soon. That's the least of my worries though.. all of the food is starting to rot! I'd been meaning to start farming, however I'm in the middle of the town and I've never farmed before. I'm not sure what I should do, it seems like everywhere is full of rotting food and my supply of chips and canned food is dwindling. I do have a previous safehouse that I abandoned without taking supplies from, I had stockpiled some food there so that's my short term move. What about long term? What do you guys suggest will keep me alive for the coming months? Preferably without farming since I'm comfortable in my current abode. And also, say a large horde does come booming through town, if I hide in my apartment (there's a few doors to get up there and also navigating to the back of my store), will they find me if I don't attract them? Could I wait them out? Thanks.
Now, before anyone jump on me - I know that the walking sounds are already implemented into the game, it's just that they work in the way they probably weren't meant to work. So, without a programming experience, but atleast having some notion of what it could be, I'll jump in with my suggestion. Foot sounds. Whenever a certain sprite plays, play that 1 single footstep sound. That way it won't be binded to how long "Shift + (Directional Button)" is pressed, and therefore could be a ground up for some awesome sneaking implementation. The way it works is, whenever a certain sprite is displayed (Taking the ones where our/NPC/Zombie character sets foot to the ground), it plays 1 single sound file. That way whenever your character runs, you can tell by hearing footsteps (and so can zombies, wink wink). It both solves problem of footsound syncing with animation, without the need to calculate it like "So, the footstep sound plays every X seconds... Fuck, but what if he is tired, or overencumbered? then the walking won't be in sync.. Or grabbed, hell, aaa". Something along the lines of "WalkingspriteNorth_15.png" calls the "WalkingFootstepsoundgrass_1.ogg", or chooses between "Walkingfootstepsoundgrass_1.ogg" and "Walkingfootstepsoundgrass_2.ogg" or "Walkingfootstepsoundgrass_3.ogg" etc, for variety. * With this in mind, you can go completely crazy as to make all kind of footstep noises - grass, sand, gravel, ceramic, bare footed, sneaking, zombie shuffling, walker crawling. Imagine how much more it would add to immersion. Hearing like a dozen of zombies shuffle around outside your warehouse. You didn't forget that your character can get a little scared when some amount of zombies are outside? Well, now you can get scared aswell. Tell me what do you think. ____ Edit : * In the "WalkingspriteNorth_15.png" example with the number I meant to display the "appropriate" frame when the character sets a foot on the ground, while in "Walkingfootstepsoundgrass_1" the number represents one of the variety of the footstep. So the first one would sound different from the _2, or _3.
