I feel as if the different skill types for different weapons, such as spears and axes are good. though segregating Long and short types of weapon is a bit to far and adds pointless grinding into the mix. For example. the Hammer and sledgehammer. If you are a level 8 in Short blunt, Able to reliably kill zombies in 1 or 2 shots with a Hammer, frying pan ect. If you get a Hammer that is somewhat heavier and has a longer handle, None of that training with shorter hammers applies to hammers the game defines as "long". Beating something to death with a Blunt object that is 15 inches long should not be an entirely different skill to beating someone to death with a blunt object that is 30 inches long. Think of it like if the Developers decided to split up shotguns and Pistols into different skills. They are different, But the end result and the way that the result of An object going into A Zombie's face at high speed is exactly the same. Merging them back into a single skill would help saves some minor headaches with modded weapons in the future. Would a 19 inch club count as short while a 20 inch club count as long? TL:DR Would beating something to death with a 20 inch club vs a 23 inch club really be so disconnected in transferable skills as electrical engineering and fishing?
I just had a little idea for a defence system that could be added to the game. This would work both as a deterrent for both zombies and survivors. Basically, using a log and a saw you can craft 2 wooden stakes. Stakes can be placed individually on the ground, taking up one tile, however you can still walk around them. Four wooden stakes could be used to make a stake wall (just four stakes in the ground upright, taking up one tile like a regular wall). Regular stakes can be used to display dead bodies, so assuming you had tons of these set up around your base, the smell would help to mask your base from zombie hordes and would also deter most NPC's from getting too close. Now as a defence, you could create stake trap and barriers, the traps would be single stakes in the ground at a random angle, a zombie could then be lured to walk into the stake and get stuck. Now do this around the entire base and you have a minefield of zombies for trespassers to get through (and if they do get through it they'd make a ton of noise killing all the trap zombies). Trap zombies would be tough to deal with since you can't push them off of you, they could grab you and pull you in for a snack. Worse yet, if the angle is right, they could pull themselves off the stake and then you'd have a bigger problem. Stake barriers would be similar to trap stakes, but would be more like a wall. Basically you'd craft it using 7 stakes (3 for supports, 4 for the actual barrier), and it'd be at a 35-40 degree angle facing N, S, E or W. These would work well as one-way routes, people would have a lot of trouble getting over the sharp end of the barrier while people on the other side could walk up it and hop off the end. I'm kind of thinking similar to the medieval style barriers which I believe were effective against cavalry, these would work well against zombies (they can still break through them though) and humans who would need to get past the sharp stakes and any zombies that might be stuck on them. Anyway, let me know what you think, personally I think this could be really cool when it comes to survivor group wars and would just be awesome to see hundreds of zombies placed in a big minefield style defence. -GodWaffle
