  1. Aight, what if there was hand held metal detector in the game that you used to find scavenge things like firearms, metal sheets, scrap metal and other metal objects? You know those long, length-wise electric ones with the arm brace and the metal disc at the end? You'd find it in houses and electronics stores. Would it be rare loot? I'm not sure but you could at least find some. When right clicking the metal detector and selecting "use" you'd automatically go into foraging mode only this time you'd be able to detect metal objects better than you would in normal foraging mode. Other objects would still be detectable but metal ones would pop up the best. I was thinking using the metal detector could increase your forage level too. The metal detector could also detect metal stored in containers in addition to metal lying out in the open. You could even use the metal detector as a blunt weapon though I wouldn't recommend it since you'd be damaging equipment against its original purpose. Better to use an actual melee weapon rather than a electronic tool that's meant to be utilized for its original purpose the most. I'm guessing it could weight 2-4 units in the game. A metal detector weighs on average 2-4 pounds in the current day though the 90s shouldn't have much of a difference. Also, metal detectors would beep in the game potentially attracting zombies. In order to stop this you have to get a set of headphones for the metal detector. You know, like you would for the portable cd players in the game. The headphones required would be different ones that the mp3 ones.

  3. After seeing the scene from TWD where the group encounters zombies with riot gear, and their usual machete/bat to the head tactics didn't work. And I thought, "Hey, that would make an awesome gameplay mechanic in PZ!" Adding groups of zombies with riot gear, would not only be a smooth way to implement riot gear itself and make zombie combat have more variety, it would also add more sense of immersion (which PZ already provides so heavily) by seeing the dead riot squad that tried to take on the horde. Now that the explanation of the idea itself is out of the way, we can move on to combat. The riot zombies would be EXTREMELY resistant to blunt and shard weaponry, and because of their bullet resistant clothing would take more 4-7 shots to kill. Now, before you say its to OP, listen to this. Earlier, I mentioned a scene for The Walking Dead...now I will annoy you all by doing so again. After the group encounters the riot gear zombies, the soon realize they can stab them through the chin up under their glass visors. That is how i think they should be in PZ as well. So the best way to kill them, is with a knife, whether it be a kitchen knife or any of the other knives added later on. It would be instant, like with other zombies. Although it sounds easy, it leaves you vulnerable to other zombies and is not advisable when in combat with many zombies at once. Now, a few more things and I'll be done. The Riot gear slows the wearer down quite a bit, both players and zombies. With zombies there is an equal chance for their visor to be up or down. If it is up, it is much more vulnerable to all attacks and can be killed with one shot to the head. If it is down, it cant bite you, just grab you leaving you open to other zombies to sink their teeth into you until you push them off. Well ok, that about covers this suggestion, and as always I'm open to criticism and suggestions. http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2013/04/riot-gear-zombie_the_walking_dead.jpg
  4. http://innawoods.net/ This site is awesome, it let's you build your own survival gear setup, from weapons and pouches, to small appliances and whatnot. It's still in it's early state, but I have already spend hours building guys for different scenarios. Here is my zombie survivalist for cold regions.:
