  1. Hello and Welcome! Here you will find a concise and comprehensive guide and tutorial of making 3D models for Project Zomboid. Currently, this will mainly pertain to custom Clothing creation but may include weapon creation in the future. This will present how to create models from scratch with Blender and bringing them into the game. I would like to emphasize that with the right optimization, you can bring any model into Zomboid. Step 1) Installation and setup Step 2) Model creation Step 3) Skinned model or not? If not, Export your model and go onto the next step. Step 4) Creating the clothing item scripts Step 5) Testing your Model Step 6) Extra things to do with 3D models Regarding 3D Car models Thanks a ton to the people that taught and assisted me along the way to learn Blender for Zomboid - DETOX, Maxwell218, PawLow, and Shark!
  2. This is a very simple suggestion. As it currently is, bandanas have quite a messy way of wearing them (an issue that was resolved for hoodies and ponchos and fanny packs a while ago with the addition of the "wear" menu). Notice how Untie Bandana and Tie Bandana are seperate to wearing on your face. (TBH the wording of these is kinda confusing aswell) Here is the solution that has been implemented for hoodies, to clean up the clutter in the RMB menu. Just a simple proposition to apply the same "wear" menu to bandanas (and maybe reword the Unti Bandana and Tie Bandana menus, so that it's clearer that this is on your head instead of your face.) My apologies if this has been suggested before/is planned and i've missed it.
  3. 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
  4. Hi. I decided to add a new type of clothing: a hard hat, jacket, and pants. Based on the standard ones: Jacket_Camo Green, Hat_Army, and Trousers_camogreen. Changed textures, drew new icons, and created the necessary files. Here is a list of files and what I wrote in them: Folder: \media\clothing\clothingItems Files: Jacket_CamoMP.xml, MP_Hat_Army.xml, Trousers_CamoMP.xml I changed two lines in each file. The path to the texture: <textureChoices>clothes\jacket\jacket_camomp</textureChoices> <textureChoices>clothes\jacket\jacket_camomp</textureChoices> <textureChoices>armyhelmetmp</textureChoices> and unique GUID for each subject (im use www.guidgenerator.com/online-guid-generator.aspx) <m_GUID>7fde9ae9-a876-46d2-ab46-24da3952c9f5</m_GUID>... and so on Folder: \media\clothing Files: clothing.xml In this file, I registered a new type of zombie spawn and specified the items that appear on it. Specified previously assigned Guids. Assigned a unique Guid to the zombie type. <m_FemaleOutfits> <m_Name>ArmyCamoMP</m_Name> <m_Guid>e9047c42-479b-4d28-975b-7dd1af366f79</m_Guid> <m_Top>false</m_Top> <m_Pants>false</m_Pants> <m_AllowPantsHue>false</m_AllowPantsHue> <m_AllowTopTint>false</m_AllowTopTint> <m_AllowTShirtDecal>false</m_AllowTShirtDecal> <m_items> <itemGUID>7fde9ae9-a876-46d2-ab46-24da3952c9f5</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>5b7f2fb6-953c-4496-91df-0a6a1d0f2273</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>edd70d8d-6f04-4a7b-9162-1f12ef96bb3b</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>b81f298c-cf92-47bf-b854-649308ba17b0</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>19504103-de6a-44bd-ac48-b9079ce0e355</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>1aad0762-7886-4295-be32-448343be62aa</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>1a437dbb-cee9-4013-8e8a-e158acf98b62</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>2b0756ac-57f3-415e-bfed-24b28d1ca4d6</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>fb86bd5f-1931-4b24-a5d7-bd6a43769991</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>cbe793fe-97d9-4585-88e0-bc18be39d714</itemGUID> </m_items> <m_items> <itemGUID>227cb2d5-05a5-44ed-872d-ac4ca16e80bc</itemGUID> </m_items> </m_FemaleOutfits> Folder: media\lua\shared\NPCs Here I specified the probability of spawning a new type of zombie. WPIZombiesZoneDefinition = ZombiesZoneDefinition or {}; WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.Army = { ArmyCamoDesert = { name="ArmyCamoDesert", chance=20, }, ArmyCamoGreen = { name="ArmyCamoGreen", chance=30, }, ArmyCamoMP = { name="ArmyCamoMP", chance=30, }, } WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.SecretBase = { ArmyCamoDesert = { name="ArmyCamoDesert", chance=20, }, ArmyCamoGreen = { name="ArmyCamoGreen", chance=30, }, ArmyCamoMP = { name="ArmyCamoMP", chance=30, }, } -- total chance can be over 100% we don't care as we'll roll on the totalChance and not a 100 (unlike the specific outfits on top of this) WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.Default = ZombiesZoneDefinition.Default or {}; table.insert(WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.Default,{name = "ArmyCamoDesert", chance=3}); table.insert(WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.Default,{name = "ArmyCamoGreen", chance=5}); table.insert(WPIZombiesZoneDefinition.Default,{name = "ArmyCamoMP", chance=5}); Folder: media\lua\shared\Translate - spit Folder: media\scripts\clothing here I specified the item characteristics and icon name item Jacket_CamoMP { Type = Clothing, DisplayName = Military Police Camo Jacket, ClothingItem = Jacket_CamoMP, BodyLocation = Jacket, Icon = JacketCamoMP, BloodLocation = Jacket, RunSpeedModifier = 0.93, CombatSpeedModifier = 0.95, BiteDefense = 40, ScratchDefense = 60, NeckProtectionModifier = 0.5, Insulation = 0.5, WindResistance = 0.35, FabricType = Cotton, WaterResistance = 0.5, Weight = 2, } item Trousers_CamoMP { Type = Clothing, DisplayName = Military Police Camo Pants, ClothingItem = Trousers_CamoMP, BodyLocation = Pants, Icon = TrousersCamoMP, BloodLocation = Trousers, BiteDefense = 20, ScratchDefense =30, Insulation = 0.55, WindResistance = 0.4, WaterResistance = 0.50, FabricType = Cotton, } item MP_Hat_Army { Type = Clothing, DisplayName = Military Police Helmet, ClothingItem = MP_Hat_Army, BodyLocation = Hat, Icon = HelmetArmyMP, CanHaveHoles = false, BloodLocation = Head, BiteDefense = 100, ScratchDefense = 100, ChanceToFall = 10, Insulation = 0.3, WaterResistance = 0.3, } Folder: media\textures here are the icons and texture of the helmet: ArmyHelmet.png Item_HelmetArmyMP.png Item_JacketCamoMP.png Item_TrousersCamoMP.png Folder: media\textures\Clothes\Jacket Texture jacket: Jacket_CamoMP.png Folder: media\textures\Clothes\Trousers_Mesh Texture trousers: Trousers_CamoMP.png I know it's not exactly the right texture and path. camouflage pants are on a different path. I got them mixed up a bit. it doesn't matter now, because it's not just the pants that are the problem. and folder: \media File: FileGuidTable.xml here I re-registered the GUIDs of new items. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <fileGuidTable> <files> <path>media/clothing/clothingItems/MP_Hat_Army.xml</path> <guid>5b7f2fb6-953c-4496-91df-0a6a1d0f2273</guid> </files> <files> <path>media/clothing/clothingItems/Jacket_CamoMP.xml</path> <guid>7fde9ae9-a876-46d2-ab46-24da3952c9f5</guid> </files> <files> <path>media/clothing/clothingItems/Trousers_CamoMP.xml</path> <guid>edd70d8d-6f04-4a7b-9162-1f12ef96bb3b</guid> </files> </fileGuidTable> and now the crux of the problem. none of this helped. the desired type of zombie appears, but there are no three new items on it - only those that were originally in the game. what did I forget to do? maybe you will notice the mistake you made? maybe I forgot to add another file or made a mistake with the model? I don't work all three items: helmet, jacket and pants. please help me, I have been struggling with this problem for about a day and tried a lot of things. unfortunately, nothing helps. I know, activity on the forum is low and hints are rarely given. if you understand the essence of the issue-help, do a good deed.
  5. Some of my clothing items have issues due to holes/patches Where I can see the environment behind the article of clothing. Here are some example pics where you can see the white of the bed around the arm patch on this ranger jacket, and then the white is gone when I stand where the patch has the wall behind it. By the Bed and then one where you can see the shoulder patch showing the white of the bed behind it, while the rest of the patches have the very faint brown of the wood behind the character: The foreman vest with a hole, where the right side you can see through to the white of the bed. Add my holeless/patchless McCoy shirt underneath, can see through those same spots. And last one, with a full set of clothes on underneath by the bed, and then next to it:
  6. Hello there, I just return to my survival and lose my glasses temples. Is it just my game or everyone's else?
  7. Hi Folks, I looked through the bug tracker and haven't seen this one mentioned, so I hope it's not a dupe of something already reported. I've recently returned to Zomboid after a little hiatus and been playing with the latest build of 41.39 and was excited to hear that clothing can actually be repaired! However, when I attempt to repair clothing I see the progress dialog bar but nothing gets repaired and the resources are consumed. I also see little red error boxes in the lower right of UI after I inspect clothing and right-click Hole to get the Patch Hole context dialog. I followed the console.txt log and see the following errors regarding getScratchDefenseFromItem(Clothing.java:936) and getBiteDefenseFromItem(Clothing.java:922) methods: LOG : General, 1593988288187> ----------------------------------------- STACK TRACE ----------------------------------------- Callframe at: getScratchDefenseFromItem function: doPatch -- file: ISGarmentUI.lua line # 124 function: doContextMenu -- file: ISGarmentUI.lua line # 167 function: onBodyPartListRightMouseUp -- file: ISGarmentUI.lua line # 92 ERROR: General, 1593988288194> ExceptionLogger.logException> Exception thrown java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException at NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke0 (Native Method).

  8. Thought I would take a look at a simple clothing retexture mod. I can work out most everything but the last couple steps to keep it from being a hack job. Only a few new steps here from a standard item mod. Create the item definition: <User Folder>\Zomboid\mods\<MyMod>\media\clothing\<MyMod>.txt Create a texture image for the 3D character model: <User Folder>\Zomboid\mods\<MyMod>\media\textures\Clothes\<subfolder>\<itemName>.png Create an inventory icon 32x32: <User Folder>\Zomboid\mods\<MyMod>\media\textures\Item_<itemName>.png Create the model\texture\tint\GUID references: <User Folder>\Zomboid\mods\<MyMod>\media\clothing\clothingItems\<itemName>.xml Attach the item to some distribution (place it in the world), the new ProceduralDistributions have a bit less boilerplate than the old SuburbsDistributions. <User Folder>\Zomboid\mods\<MyMod>\media\lua\server\items\<MyMod>_distributions.lua Finally, you need to have a GUID to clothing model reference placed in fileGuidTable.xml. I have found no way to inject this from a mod, I could only get it working by adding the reference directly to the game file: <game install>\media\fileGuidTable.xml Anyone know a way around this? Also, if I want the clothing item to be worn by zeds, I need to edit the game file: <game install>\media\clothing\clothing.xml I'd love to have a way to inject\replace XML in those files from the mod. That or some back door lua script way.
  9. I think Project Zomboid has a fairly large fan base and they should use fans love for the game to help support the development. I.e I’d love to be able to purchase something from a “PZ Store” and I don’t exactly know what but I think it would give a nice add to the game and also I’d love to support Project Zomboid Dev Team instead of being a one time buy and play game. Maybe they can add clothing items you can buy and find in game, or custom weapons skins you can buy when you loot a bat. I don’t know but I’m sure they could find something for us Zomboid lovers to buy something.
  10. It's probably already been suggested, but is it possible to have equipped clothes showing up in an expanded menu? Either that or as it's own 'bag slot'? I personally find that it's quite hard to navigate my inventory when I'm wearing every single bit of clothing I can find. I understand not everyone is as clumsy with inventory management as me, but I feel it would help massively. xXx
  11. Loving the new update on the test server, i've only encountered one issue. I like to start in Feb. since its my birth month and reasonably its always cold but none of the clothes give off warmth and they all appear blank on the insulation bar: Jackets, Shirts, Sweaters, Jeans etc. none of them worked for the cold.
  12. Heya Everyone, so let's get right to it. Seeing the new video with the "potential" clothing I noticed that the way they had big gowns/dresses animated (As is most common to see, people usually just bind the dresses to the legs and therefore get these big pants which are supposedly dresses, even though they act completely like pants, bound to the bone structure and therefore easier to fit into animations (So you don't need to animate new animations for the dresses)) Now while I understand why they would do this, I would like to suggest another option. Have restrictive dresses. Now before you go crazy, there are some restrictive and some not-restrictive dresses, the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 6th are probably the most restrictive and I would suggest making it so you can only walk in them (or crouch, but no running) which makes it so we won't see clipping, but holding the bottom of the dress to the ground (as shown on the bottom "animation", that way it seems much more like dresses instead of big pants which only really look good if you're standing still. I would suggest animating the dresses (or part of them, to just drag along the ground, thinking along something like the Villager (woman) from Warcraft 3 if anyone can remember, it seems much more like a dress and doesn't break the aesthetics of the game. So wearing a beautiful dress would let you look stunning, but would restrict you to walking/crouching, and maybe climbing through a window, but never down/up ropes or any of the other crazier animations. And if things become grim you can always just rip it and suddenly you can do all the normal things you could do before. Just please, let's not go the route of big trumpet pants, then I rather you just keep to dresses like the dark blue which is just a polygon in between the legs. (also please add heels )
  13. I suggest adding a method that will allow us to load skinned mesh in game! I replaced the original models of clothes, and it looks good. But unfortunately adding them without replacing the original is impossible, since there is no skinned model load method. :(( Class LuaManager.GlobalObject has a method that allows loading a static model, but it does not allow upload skinned model, because it sends boolean true to ModelLoader.instance.Load
  14. As the title suggests, nice slacks, suit jackets and ties on collared shirts (long-sleeved and short-sleeved) for undead office stiffs and players hoping to look a little more classy in the apocalypse, sports jerseys for undead fans and players alike (an opportunity for another Spiffo logo on a shirt), and mechanics' uniforms for the undead mechanics of Knox County (especially taking into consideration the recently added garage and junkyard in Riverside) - Taking inspiration from Left 4 Dead Common Infected. Short/Long-sleeved shirts, sports jersey, and suit: Mechanic's Uniform: Sports Jersey: Suit and Tie: Would also be nice to have collared shirts and ties in-game, so as to properly represent this awesome concept art for Zomboid:
  15. So, this is either gonna sound really cool or really stupid. You know how certain fast food chains have costumed mascots to advertise their products? Like the Chik-Fil-A Cow, or Ronald McDonald, etcetera? Well, one would think that with a chain like Spiffo's being popular enough to warrant its own feature-length film, it would stand to reason that the restaurants would have a Spiffo suit lying around for some hapless employee to climb into and sweat his balls off while holding a picture of chicken and waffles on the side of the highway. Thus, I suggest a Spiffo mascot outfit as form of clothing/armor (at least, for when the animation update finally drops). I know what you're thinking: a mascot costume as armor? Is that realistic or practical? Well, yes and no. I used to be a college mascot, and let me tell you, the fur on that costume was THICK. It wouldn't be easy to bite through that, especially if the person wearing the suit was resisting and fighting back. Plus the mascot head would have full protection at the cost of limited visibility. With that in mind, a thick, fluffy Spiffo suit could protect against bites and scratches on the arms, legs, and torso, as well as pretty much negating all damage to the head and neck area. The downside would be the heat. Again, from experience, I can tell you that it gets REALLY hot in those things. I've even passed out on one occasion from the heat. Thus the character wearing the suit would be much more susceptible to overheating and thirst. Plus you can't easily drink water while wearing the mascot head, so you'd have to remove it in order to drink from a bottle or water source. I dunno. I just think it'd be both hilarious and badass to slaughter zombies across Kentucky while dressed as an adorable raccoon. Spiffo IS the official mascot of both PZ and Indie Stone, after all. Why not take that to a whole new level?
  16. Could we also be looking forward to seeing military hazmat/nbc suits ? Military presence should own this since the virus is understood to be mostly airborne, hence a gas mask and suit. Made from rubber and different layers, it should provide some protection against bites, though I have to tell you, these things are hot and heavy, but they offer a wide variety of protection against anything nuclear, biological and chemical. This one is a Romanian gas mask and full NBC suit that can be found on military guards stationed at the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant and around some gun/chemical facilities. This one is mine,a rare model that is standard issue in Romania for anyone working in a highly dangerous place or keeping guard over. Excuse my background, it's hard to get it on and then walk around to do a good picture. Here's an example. Anyone who wants to see more I'll post other pictures. Didn't put the filter and gloves to take a picture. Coal based filters. The game already has coal, makeshift gas masks could be possible. I think it would be a good idea for corpse management also and so on Good mobility for arms, legs, only if you wear boots inside.
  17. Did a forum search, found a few mentions of some gear in a few discussions here and there, and thought I'd expand upon it a little bit. With the animation update including lots of new models, I thought I'd mention usable gear that could display what players, zombies, and hopefully NPCs in the future, are carrying. That being said, let's get started! Utility Belts A brief mention of this both here and here, with the equipment involved and the benefits of the gear being visible to players. Utility belts are used by police officers to carry equipment including handcuffs, pistols, extra magazines/pistol rounds, flashlights, handheld radios, batons, knife or multi-functional tools, keys, basic first aid items, and disposable gloves. Soldiers also use packs and belts to an extent, though that's not really my area. Workers in and around construction areas *cough* McCoy Logging Co. *cough*, not to mention plumbers, mechanics, and other professions, frequently use utility belts to carry tools such as hammers, screwdrivers, and the like. A few photos with some captions: I bring the utility belt up because as I mentioned in a separate thread, it would be worth checking to see if there's still a gun in the holster before making what might be an unnecessary risk to get it, or if a police-radio is still clipped onto the belt/uniform as seen in the photo, or dragging on the ground, which leads me to my second topic: Radios As mentioned in the aforementioned links, police officers use their radios to inform dispatch of the current situation, while soldiers use radios to keep in touch with their superiors/fellow soldiers. Useful gameplay-wise to just attach it and inform both players and possibly NPCs of information, with above-mentioned radio broadcasts. Graphically - I think they'd be awesome, and add a huge amount of atmosphere. More photos: And finally: Holsters Fairly straightforward, places for firearms - either slung over the back, in the waistband of the pants, or a holster by the side - would be both cool to see and important for gameplay purposes. As said in a separate thread, it'd be helpful to know if the man you're talking to has a gun in the waistband of his pants or a holster by his side, be it another player or an NPC. And that's about it!
  18. I reckon some folks here have seen this on the Steam forums some time ago, but I wanted to compile a slightly updated list of some law enforcement gear that might be nifty to have in the game and appropriate to mention now, with the ever-approaching animations/clothing/weapons update. I am also hoping to broaden the scope of to-be-included police gear beyond riot gear; this post is mainly about standard carry, normal police gear you'd find even in a small county sheriff's department that'd be appropriate for the setting of Project Zomboid. Let's begin! 1: Police Batons (Specifically PR 24s) - Tried and tested, these are traditional police batons; A weapon among law enforcement officers that would've been standard carry back in the early 1990s. Typically made out of sturdy plastic. Noted especially for its lethality. 2: Police Bulletproof Vest - A common must-have with police officers that could be used to deflect bites in single player (and stop bullets fired by NPCs when the day arrives) , while also useful in multiplayer, with the drawbacks including weight and overheating. 3: Police Duty Belt -I find it a bit weird that I can find a pistol or a radio on a zombie when there's no place they could be hiding such items on their person; pockets are too small, and I don't see them clipped on. I do think it'd be useful both gameplay-wise and graphically to include somewhat of a visual cue as to what a zombie/player is carrying and where they're carrying it. Enter: The Belt. This is equipment that's a staple to police uniforms and designed to hold most of the gear used by police officers on a daily basis. They generally hold: handcuffs, pistols, extra magazines/pistol rounds, flashlights, handheld radios, batons, knife or multi-functional tools, keys, basic first aid items, and disposable gloves, which are used to treat wounded victims or investigate crime scenes, and could be used when moving corpses in-game. 4: Police Flashlight(s) - While there typically isn't a mandatory flashlight that police officers have to use, most carry one with them at all times. -Some choose to use the big stinger-type flashlights, which are large and heavy (good for self-defense). -Others prefer smaller flashlights, which can put out a radiant 1000+ lumens, enough to illuminate a street for up to a few hundred yards. The smaller flashlights can also can be mounted to pistols, useful during night pursuits. 5: Police Handcuffs - Very self explanatory item. Most handcuffs are made of steel, making them very durable and are near impossible to have the locks picked by perpetrators. Most police officers carry 2-3 pairs on their gear belts so they can apprehend multiple suspects when they are without backup, often when they are patrolling unpopulated or rural areas *cough* Muldraugh and West Point *cough*. This is one that could be useful in multiplayer for hostage situations, or in single player when NPCs are added. 6: Police Radios/Microphones - Officers use their radios to inform dispatch of the current situation. The radio is usually held in a pouch attached to a loop in the equipment belt and can be easily removed, while some radios have an external microphone attached to the radio that can be clipped to the uniform. Can serve as additional radios in-game while providing insight to local/county police chatter and military broadcasts. Useful gameplay-wise to just attach it and inform both players and possibly NPCs of information, with above-mentioned radio broadcasts. Graphically - I think it'd just be awesome, and add a huge amount of atmosphere. 7: Police Cruisers - Confirmed! It is worth a mention that police cruisers tend to carry weaponry (usually a shotgun) in the trunk with some ammunition. Police cruisers are also equipped with radios near the driver's seat that could be used for further communication, along with very loud sirens. All of these items were common around the 1990s, even in areas such as rural Muldraugh/West Point, and certainly in large cities such as Louisville. I'd love to hear any thoughts, recommendations, or anything else on the subject.
  19. I decided to gather up a lot of comments today on Youtube of people's suggestions for the clothing and animations update, shorten them up, and compile them in a single forum. Please note that all these ideas are from the majority of people, and not just from me. Giving you a heads up of what the community thinks should be added. NOTE:This is not to add on to the current progress of the great, hard working, already busy, devs. I do not want them to take this as more pressure or work "To-Do". These are just suggestions after all, not something that should be in the game if the devs wish to. There is already too much work being made by them, but i decided to do this anyways just to give more ideas. In case they want to add this AFTER the planned builds are fully out (speaking after build 1.0) i don't want to delay the build release time... Ok here we go... Suggestions -Zombies ignore you when having soaking blood wet clothes. "Also imagine you got so much blood on you. The walkers will start thinking you are one of them because you smell like one. But the down side is that you will feel uncomfortable like walking makes you slower. Don't feel like eating before cleaning yourself up etc." -Blood footprints. -New showering/cleaning system. "Maybe now showers and bathtubs will have some utility besides decorating and being used to fill water bottles. Also, wet bath towels should be useful as well. showers will have use now with these bloods stains on player? mabye with soap you can get clean buff? " Zombie clothing decay/variation. "Strangely, all zombies wear perfect shoes... One might expect them to lose one boot or both after a while... And also, clothing has to have various levels of deterioration too... Right now all zombies look too fancy even with the blood cover on..." -Wearing clothes with zombie blood can infect untreated wounds. "Do you plan to add some sort of infection due to blood on your character? That chance being increased the more wounds/untreated wounds your character have." -Zombies with certain clothes/equipment can't harm you. "also recommend that zombies with a helmet are made unable to bite you, it would make sense if the same went for zombies with gloves on." -New panic mechanic. (Already answered) "when you fall over a fence, the "recovery" animation should be dependent on how high your panic is!! With high panic resulting in scrambling up again quickly and low panic being like "oh that hurt, gonna take a moment here." But it depends on panic level." Another guy said: "maybe they should scurry along the floor until they find their feet when trying to run, after being knocked/tripped over rather than lying on the floor. Or maybe even mash to bring them to their senses a bit faster." Chris Simpson's answer:"Already a thing we have anims for scrambling across the floor trying to get up in a panic, scrabbling backwards on your ass kicking zoms in the face etc. It's gonna be ace but not 100% sure that'll make it into first version." FAQ by the community "You can't swing at more than one zombie anymore? Or are those animations being worked on?" "Will this update impact my low spec pc badly?" "Is this completely CPU dependent or can my GPU also handle some of the rendering?" "Is there a way i can switch back to the old sprites or versions of the game?" "The textures of the world look off and don't fit the character's models and clothing anymore. (in some people's opinion) Will you work to make shaders and improve them?" I made this because i thought it would be good to get the people's major suggestions out to the people at the forums to see. I hope you understood this doesn't have to be implement if the devs don't want to... again i don't want to annoy them by any means. Thank you devs for working on such a great game! I appreciate your hard work, and time that you're putting into this game. I am looking forward to what the community thinks of this. Thank you again.
  20. Big fan, saw the recent blog post about your new texturing: http://projectzomboid.com/blog/2016/06/bloody-business/. Since it gives you the ability to combine as many textures as you like, I thought: why not add, as time passes, ageing to all found clothing in the game, conveying the encroaching worldly demise, perhaps as a sepia-toned texture set with minor imperfections.
  21. I have managed to edit the long skirt into a more shorter one, I personally find this too short, but I had to make it shorter to show off the differences between each clothing item. This is still a WIP.
  22. Hey guys, So I've been playing this for a while, although I had to make a new account to post this because I have no idea what my old info was, or if I even had a forum account Anyways, after playing recently and being absolutely thrilled with what they've done with the game. Occasionally an idea will come to me, and I tried to write down the ones I remembered but I'll edit it later. Most of them are pretty small things, some without even any real gameplay impact. Hopefully I didnt repost anything, I skimmed the forums to see whats been posted and saw a couple I thought of, so I'll leave those out [Colored Ripped Sheets]: Thought it would kind of neat if when you ripped up an article of clothing for bandages, the bandages retained the item's color. ["Functional" Clothing]: The color customization of clothing is nice, but it would be neat if they added some actual useful clothing, for example: -A rainslicker to prevent or reduce the effect of rain -Thicker winter coat to fight against the cold -Variations on shoes: Sneakers that say, increase sprint duration/XP gain, or steel toe boots that make zombie stomping more effective. -Combat Webbing: Wearable in the chest slot, this would function both as clothing and a bag slot (along with keys, backpack etc) with fairly minimal capacity and weight reduction, with the intention of storing ammunition/pistol/knife/smokes/etc [spray Paint]: The ability to tag buildings or areas with some variety of predesigned symbols with looted spray cans would be neat. They could serve as warnings to other players, or locations of stashes and safehouses/directions. To prevent spamming maybe they could be cleanable using the same process as blood spatters. [Misc. Item Overhaul]: I'm a huge fan of flavor, and I love the atmosphere that a lot of the misc. items provide like finding wallets on zombies and toys in crates. But a lot of the items seem like they verge on the border of useful; why not actually make some of the misc items do something? If not beneficial, at the very least cosmetic. -Yo-yos. Why shouldnt this provide amusement, maybe with a durability bar to boot. Or if thats too useful, give the character a yo-yoing animation when used. -Rings should be wearable, even if just for cosmetics sake -Playing cards relieve stress and boredom, but require another player to use. -Dice should be rollable -Sunglasses, wearable. -Wallet should be usable as a very small bag, equipable in its own slot like the keyring -Umbrella and map... self explanatory [Repair Overhaul]: I feel like weapon repairing is kind of counter-intuitive. When playing with relatively scarce resources, in the time it takes me to find the materials to repair a spiked bat I've already found and make 10 more. Sometimes the materials seem a little weird too. Either change/reduce the materials required, or give them "durability" like water and disinfectant. There's probably more, but I'm pretty tired Anyway, most of them are pretty little things, but I'm all about the atmosphere and flavor in a game and Project Zomboid has tons of it! Good work devs!
  23. clothing is becoming a very popular topic in the past week or so i just thought i would make a thread that is about just general clothing suggestions i will also link to the other posts about clothing in this thread also. when King jjwpenguin finishes his list i can add it to here as well. going to create a spoiler list for things being suggested that revolve around clothing. 1: Uses: ways to use clothing other than fashion. 2: New Types: what slots and how the above uses can be implemented 3. Fashion: just more clothing stuff you would like to see to create a variety 4. UI changes: Better ways to view your clothes. 5. Traits: traits relating to clothing: 6. References: other threads about clothing. if you have any ideas of how to organize this stuff better let me know and i'll try too. also i will add suggestions to the list. Edit: added names of those who started threads in references added Clothing - king jjwpenguin
  24. Soooo i'm curious about adding new skills. Or better said replace carpentry for more suitable skill like Builder, or Engineer, or... i don't know name that covers all the things player can made by himself... Maybe Handyman? There is a mod, where player can create almost any building that you can see in the city. But i don't really like mods that adding many things in this game, because of so many releases and mod compatibility, even one can be lost in many mods in some future build, where some mods would be added into vanilla. So why not add it into vanilla? I really, REALLY would like to see that player can made things out of metal(no more nails-hungry in survival mode), or making glass windows. And adding feature of making roofs(without making stairs build before, scaffold kit would be needed). And if making glass works are too much, so at last being able to disassemble windows from neibourhood houses and add it into your house/fortress. Oh yes, another idea just now popped out. Disassembling. Wooden walls, doors, floors... and destroying things with sledge into visible rubble, where something usefull can be, if lucky. Another idea is... TIME. And DATE. IRL human can't know, what time and date is now, without watches. I saw digital watches once in great mall, so... Why don't take out time and date from the upper right corner? It will be more realistic. And give watches a purpose. Wearable loot. If char find watches, from that point he can have his upper right corner back. Another thing... different looks of zeds. Bodies. Some skinny, some obese... even char. And more clothing types, like for example raincoats, jackets, necktie, uniforms/overalls...
