  1. Quick Summary: Louisville, KY is the disco ball capital of the world. Adding a disco ball factory would be a fun addition. Explanation: Over 90% of all disco balls worldwide are manufactured in Louisville, Kentucky. In the 1980s around 25 people, mostly women, made disco balls, manufacturing 25 per day per worker. Its in a smaller factory. The disco balls, formally known as mirror balls, are filled with aluminum, then have the mirrors put on. Their factory floor had a boom box for music - playing the best disco music, of course! This company also had a decently-sized wood products division sharing factory space with the mirror division, and the mirror division also makes traditional mirrors, but it is most known nationally & internationally for the disco balls. The manufacturing process, as described by the woman who has been making them for nearly 50 years (and she still does!), Yolanda "Yo Yo" Baker: On a recent morning, Baker showed how sheets of mirror glued to heavy cloth are scored in various sizes and then broken into squares. Strips of mirrored cloth are then cut into workable lengths. She grabs an aluminum shell, made in Illinois, and carefully applies glue. The middle of the ball is covered first with what Baker calls the "belly band" and then, one strip at a time, she starts the laborious process of turning a dull ball into an explosion of light.

P.S. One company anecdote described how, once upon a time, an unmarked police vehicle drove straight into the factory wall, with its whole front inside the building! Maybe a fun addition to the building? P.S.S. Working disco balls would also be LIT, I wanna see zombies swaying in a mosh pit now, or a survivor using their dance moves on a dance floor under a disco ball

  3. Version:41.71(steam) Singleplayer Host Mods:Louisville Brand new save Reproduction: run in walkway in designated location Louisville Apartment Complex 6th Floor Fire Escape located at 13120x1619x5 has an invisible barrier of some sort. Map screenshot provided as well in case I messed up the coordinate. Recorded myself walking & sprinting at the invisible barrier, doesn't knock me back like a physical wall would so not sure if this is intentionally blocked off? I could not find anything related to a Louisville fire escape, so I apologize if this is already known. Also included logs.zip as requested, I first encountered this in my normal playthrough with various mods, and re-launched with only the mod "louisville" which gives you louisville spawns so I could just run the 2 blocks from spawn to check if it still happened, and it happens with only that as well. Sorry I could not test with vanilla as I wasn't sure off the top of my head how to set up a spawn or fly there. Thank you. logs.zip
  4. Howdy folks! Today's nomination for the map is... Louisville's Second Chances Wildlife Rehabilitation Center! Why, you ask? 1) This small building's earned itself a TV series on National Geographic & gone viral numerous times online. See http://secondchanceswildlife.org/about-us/video/ and https://www.natgeotv.com/asia/bandit-patrol/about 2) It's a small, cute building. 3) It also would make a decent base It has a pond in the back, ever since an aquascaper came in with 20 people and built a pond for Justin Beaver, a beaver at the wildlife education/rescue center. 4) The indoors of the building's well-documented. See the below video and watch for 2-3 minutes. 5) It's really cute! 6) It's actually in Kentucky! Although it didn't exist in the 80s/90s... perhaps y'all could make an exception for it? I think the building itself existed in the 90s, but not for the purposes of wildlife rehab.
  5. Devs, 1. I noticed that the Kentucky History Museum is on Google Street View, so you can view all of the (public) interior sections online. It looks like there's tons of neat stuff you could add into the building! Perhaps it'd make good inspiration? https://www.google.com/maps/@38.1989497,-84.8746117,3a,75y,339.18h,88.59t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipMgEiUQVD2JdjX0D2P3EQhMGkukNcyBq_0XLAli!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipMgEiUQVD2JdjX0D2P3EQhMGkukNcyBq_0XLAli%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0.21035251-ya62.306892-ro-0.6750908-fo100!7i7776!8i3888?hl=en A lot of the artifacts on display might also, oddly-enough, be useful in a very long-term zompoc situation... I was seriously eyeing that antique cotton loom in the company store exhibit.... 2. Two blocks away, someone also put the Old State Capital Building on Google Street View too. This building is REALLY cool! https://www.google.com/maps/@38.2002913,-84.876556,3a,75y,90h,90t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipP8I_5MHRmjhcdIgShIIw291wLCjDYk7bej9iV3!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipP8I_5MHRmjhcdIgShIIw291wLCjDYk7bej9iV3%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0.04138735-ya48.35641-ro-0.7058901-fo100!7i7776!8i3888?hl=en The Old State Capital does have BAMF paintings tho... and one of the street view photos includes an antique wood stove... so perhaps I'm partial to having a wood stove downtown. 3. The Buffalo Trace Distillery is also on Google Maps as well as on its own website. It's a very old distillery; the original distillery was built during the American Revolution. The grounds contain the original home of a Colonel, whose home was built in 1934 from stone. The bonatical garden renovations are unfortunately very recent and not in the PZ timeline, but the house has been there, along with the buildings. See https://www.buffalotracedistillery.com/# and also see https://www.google.com/maps/@38.2168486,-84.8701619,3a,75y,272.3h,75.22t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipOP0WinVhHFixagOld8hPLLeAlBaKt1H3Jy5jqg!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipOP0WinVhHFixagOld8hPLLeAlBaKt1H3Jy5jqg%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi4.071016-ya185.85037-ro0.4857074-fo100!7i5376!8i2688?hl=en P.S. You can use the X's on the street view map to navigate, or the minimap at the bottom-left.
  6. Kentucky as a state is known for bourbon; Kentuckians claim bourbon as their own, usually citing Elijah Craig as their inspiration. Heaven Hills is based out of Louisville and has been since the 1910s, and they make many well-known brands of whisky (like Evan Williams, see others at https://www.heavenhill.com/history.php --- must be 21+ to view). So while Louisville might be a long ways' away, including the liquor manufacturing for the inevitable whisky companies in Louisville doesn't have to be! Perhaps for a longer-term feature, we could work on a distilling method for liquor, perhaps something like this: 1. Build a rain barrel. 2. Put milled (IE processed) grains into it; using corn would work 3. Put hot water in the barrel 4. Put yeast (yes, cooking yeast) into it 5. Put into a fermenter (basically a big steel barrel), keep it temp-controlled, and wait 3 days (7 if no electricity for temp-control), occasionally "watering" it with cold water. Congrats, you made beer! 6. Continue toward whisky. Build or find a column still. Building a still would require cooking and metalworking skill. Distilling takes a few hours, so setting this up like a kitchen stove item (with an on/off button and a place to put the fermented beer) might not be a bad idea. Congrats, you made icky-tasting whisky! 7. Build a cask to store well. Perhaps you could even re-use the rain barrel from #1. Carpentry skill dictates how good the barrel is; if you build a bad barrel, you may lose some of the liquor. 8. Let it age if you're inclined. Congrats, you made better whisky! In-game reasons for this: Long-term, non-spoilable happiness item-making Long-term manufacturing of disinfectant An alternative to jarring for food storage A long-term way to get wasted & make bad PZ survivor decisions Later down the line, for a Louisville bourbon distillery and NPC item-trading as a commodity Downsides: If it's made too detailed, it could be confusing Outside of roleplayers, not many players would get wasted on purpose Anybody in this forum made their own liquor before? What may I be missing? P.S. Maybe you could even convince Indiestone management you need to tour a local whisky manufacturer and/or try to make your own Indiestone whisky for research purposes....
