  1. I Think that a tile based inventory system would be great for this game. like Escape from Tarkov, Day Z, and Resident Evil 4. (see attached photo for context) It could let clothing have inventory space rather than you just being able to hold 10 units of stuff. course I see that it would be tedious to swap around items from your pants to a new pair, etc. but I think the struggle of organizing your items as a zombie, or three, bang on your door; but being able to visualize how your stuff is placed in your pack would feel less unorganized than a drop down list. I'm not say
  2. 1. This shirt cannot be ripped into rags and blood is not displayed: Police Trooper T-Shirt - Base.Tshirt_PoliceBlue 2. Blood is not displayed: Police Trooper Hat - Base.Hat_Police 3. Blood is not displayed: Police Deputy Hat - Base.Hat_Police_Grey
  3. I got this idea from my personal experience with the game. See, when I'm playing with my first created survivor, and he dies, I forgive that initial immersion in the world, because the second survivor is still inside his home, even though the apocalypse in his city has started more than 1 month ago! This is not immersive, nor does it make sense. After all, this game is a simulation of an apocalypse. The second survivor must, as the name he describes suggests, be surviving! Whoever reads this agrees with me? Because of this surreal reason, I came here to propose that you, devel
  4. Hello guys! Its not a huge suggestion, but I think it would fix something ingame, that bothers me for a long time. I experienced, that Canned Sardines does not requires Can Opener to get opened, because it has this little handle on top, what you can use to get it open. I checked the Canned Tuna textures, and it also does have the exact same handle to open, but it requires a Can Opener to get opened. My suggestion is to make the Canned Tuna possible to open without a Can Opener. Also I have found Corkscrew in game. My suggestion is to give the Corkscrew a function, which is mea
  5. Hello everyone! Project Zomboid is one of the most atmospheric games I know. The 41st build has become even more atmospheric, beautiful and realistic, it is being refined and this can not but please. The other day I was playing The Long Dark and OMG! These sounds of inventory, when you have something behind you clanking or gurgling, very much immerse you in the game! Or take another game, DayZ, in which you can hear a rifle dangling from your belt, behind you. This also immerses you in the game. Would PZ be prevented from doing something like this? It seems to me that to hear t
  6. Hello everybody! I'm here with a very small idea. Why not add the ability to load weapons without clips to the game? How it is implemented, for example, in the game DayZ. Playing on complex sandbox settings, I sometimes had problems with firearms - I didn't have clips for them. Why doesn't the character put a round in the barrel? Of course, it might not be effective against the walkers, but... it will be possible to rake them in one place Thanks for your attention
  7. We all want Project Zomboid to be the most realistic Zombie Survival game of all time. here is some suggestion. Campfire system expansion. It is the basic things to do in Survival situation, here is we can find current PZ Campfire system https://pzwiki.net/wiki/Campfire not so much for start a fire for surviving the zombie apocalypse, at first we only need a Match, when all Matches gone? next we can use a stick and notched wooden plank, only that's it but come on, its realistic Zombie Apocalypse, we need more more wa
  8. Hello dev team and forum community! So, here's a small list of some ideas I've had for small details. -Choosing "short sighted" gives you glasses by default. That pair, and only that pair, negates the effect of the perk, if they're kept clean and not broken. If lost/broken, too bad. -Pain tolerance traits (increases/decreases pain moodle amounts) -Noisy clothing (like those pants that, no matter how you walk, always go "SHZWEP SHZWEP SHZWEP" when they move) -Different footwear should affect climbing ability and stamina drain -Gas masks should provide face p
  9. This mod lets structures come crashing down when their support structures are removed. All structures must have a wall in a 5x5 area below or get destroyed. Also prevents players from building floors more than 3 tiles away from any wall. Be aware that any player (and zombie) that is below a crashing structure will get hurt, maybe even killed... Mod preview image by Onkeen. Thanks! I'm still working on the details and effects of this, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to reply! This is what happens when you remove enough supporting struct
  10. I love the idea of zombies if strong or numerous enough being able to break down walls or even topple houses if you set them to extreme settings, but this is silly and I would only like it as an option. I'm sad that huge hordes of zombies can only break doors and windows. It seems a bit silly too in that way. I'm also disappointed that cars can't crash into signs or buildings and cause any actual damage. Cars crashing into buildings are not so uncommon and get reported on the news less often than they actually happen. I saw a news report once that a man got drunk or had a heart attack and drov
  11. Much like water in containers; the weight is determined by how much water is in said container. It would also be amazing to have this implemented with food items. If I have a box of Mac and Cheese, that weighs 0.5 by default, surely if I was to eat 1/2 of the Mac and Cheese then the weight of the item should drop to at least 0.30? Assuming that the packaging would weight a default 0.1, and that 0.2 of the weight is consumable. This would be extremely useful if implemented, both for managing weight and realism. The same could be implemented for things such as cans of paint, and even
  12. Hi, recently started playing again. Trying to sleep I lay pondering. Let me see if I can remember it all. Real time. How come this isn't default? There is the speed up buttons for those moment where it takes a long time. Item transfer delay would make more sense as well. (supported in sandbox) Not being able to carry almost anything without a container of sort. It would also be nice if you could use certain items from your backpack without the item appearing on you. Taking a pill for example. This includes fridges. More positive traits possible. Somewhere around the gene
  13. Redux I've done a similar suggestion a while back and it seems to have been deleted, probably from lack of activity. It was then limited to falling from sheet ropes. I've since saw a discussion on steam about sheet ropes breaking. I've also climbed a sheet rope while carrying 3 fridges (1 primary, 1 secondary, 1 in inventory)... so I think it's time to get this out there again. From the past to the present Initialy, there was some complaints about the randomness of possible injury that made that suggestion unpopular. Although there may be a random part to it, most of
  14. *Warning this mod would be huge xD* \\ So, first off I'm new to the forums, Hello everyone! Modders and fellow PZ Family! I'm familiar with how the forums work, and in advanced I'd like to apologize if I upset anyone lol >.< - P.s I'm not a modder but would love to learn how! // That all being said, let's get down to the idea! I've played PZ for the better part of a year or so, definitely not as long as most everyone here, but that isn't necessarily needed to know that it can become quite lonely in the PZ world. I mean, we all know when we start off
  15. There are a lot of things in the game that are not realistic, mostly that they disallow something that we would usually do in real-life, and on top of that some are inconsistent with others. If you cannot think of any examples right now, I do have a few which I will post below. Wine as disinfectant Why can't we use wine as disinfectant? Wine usually contains higher amounts of alcohol than regular alcoholic drinks and that makes it a better disinfectant than most. Cologne or aftershave with alcohol make a disinfectant I've noticed that in the game there is cologne, and I tried to use it
  16. Typical situation in game now: it's 10pm, too dark to go outside, probably too early to sleep. Player doesn't have anything to do so he/she read some skill book to gain exp boost / kill time but wait there is one problem with reading, there is no light source (in most cases, after power is off). So i suggest that if player want to read he need a light source near character or he simply can't read books/magazines etc. This of course will require placeable candles/flashlights and maybe some recipe with flashlight so it will work as lamp. I think it is simple, realistic idea which will make game
  17. Just found my first Sledgehammer and I said ''Cool! Now I can take down those doors I wanna break for hinges and planks. Maybe even get myself some more planks from some wooden houses I saw.'', but, when I destroyed my first door IT LEFT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BEHIND. Then tried with house's wall, same result. With a wooden wall I built? Same result.... It's as if more than a sledgehammer, it was a sort of ''Delete'' button that magically disintegrates everything it touches. Why is that? Why can a humble hammer or ax demolish a door more realistically than a sledge? Why do demolished walls don't

    Realism mod

    Hi, i want to show you my little simple mod. Mod doesn't adds anything new, it's just changes various game mechanics. The reason behind my mod is to make game a lot harder and more realistic at the same time so i changed mostly how farming works. Changes: It mostly changes how farming works, it's now a lot harder (realistic growing time). All plants have realistic growin time now(and realistic time to rot): carrots: 4 months to grown 6 months to rot potatoes: 4 months to grown 8 months to rot tomato: 2,5 months to grown 2 week to rot (default time) cabbage: 4 months to grown 3 months
  19. Here are three new items with their respective mechanics that would flawlessly fit this game: 1. Ladders Ever seen one of these? These foldable metal ladders (which are rather commonplace in garages, construction sites and tool shops) would make quite a great addition to the game. First, they could be used to access the second-floor window of a house you were trying to get into. The downside would be that the zeds could knock it down as you are climbing and send you to your death (or a lot of fractures if you happen to survive). Also, they could be useful for building roofs to our base
  20. I was bored in my safehouse, and on the verge of depressed. I then read 4 books in about 1 minute, and my character was just fine. Maybe all books should have a set amount of pages, and it takes a much longer time to read them (like skill books), but instead of boosting your XP multiplier, it reduces your boredom and unhappiness. It would have a set amount of pages (i.e. Magazines have 30 pages, newspapers have 20, books have 200.) So for example you could have one book that you've been reading for awhile, but haven't had a chance to finish so you read it in your spare time instead of read
  21. This is perhaps the biggest realistic element I see missing in this game... Why can we not move around or remove the stuff within our base? Why can't we grab some stuff from other places and bring it to our home? And finally, why do we have to use the Sledge to remove furniture instead of just, like, grabbing it and trowing it away (something which, by itself, is pretty unrealistic. See my other thread for my suggestions for the Sledge.)? If it was the Zombie Apoc, what would stop us from grabbing a chair or a BBQ from the backyard of our already-zedified neighbors? If we need water, what
  22. So, as the topic says I don't think it makes sense... I am jogging around fighting zombies, yet somehow while doing other things I am able to drink from a water bottle as if it is a camel back... Yet, the same does not apply to soda... this does not make sense... For realism we should drink from the bottle like a soda (you can keep the water units system I.E. don't drain the whole bottle at once). Whereas if you have a camelback it will automatically hydrate you. Anyway, bit of a rant there... I am sure this could be modded, it just seems a bit hokey to me when I am running around. EDI
  23. Log walls are the strongest walls in the game but building them is very easy and not so realistic. Now it look like this: In that picture i explained what should happen with such a wall. So my suggestion is that you need to have a shovel and dig a ditch in order to build a log wall. Like in this picture: I think it will be good change for realism and good for gameplay too.
  24. I would like to suggest changes for the sake of realism, or perhaps options in the menu when starting a new game to bring more realism to the game. I love the game and one of the things I like most about it is that it has a feeling of realism to it that other games always lack. It is brutal and unforgiving just like a situation like this in real life would be. To that end, there are a few things already in the game, or expected to be added to the game in the future, that I think would break immersion. 1 - Tool/Weapon durability. I understand that this was implemented to add difficulty
  25. I apologize firstly for the small book below, and if this has been suggested previously, as I am new to the forum. I've been playing PZ for a while, and have thought that a reloading system (similar to "Fallout: New Vegas") would be a major addition to the game. As an avid shooter in real life, I understand the advantage of having the tools required to reuse my spent shell casings. It isn't a hobby EVERY shooter does, but I'm sure every shooter appreciates. In the game, I understand that we are trying to survive, and not scrounge on mall parking lots looking for little brass shell casings (h
