  1. Hi. I want to share with the community a problem with transport management in the game, which, as it turned out, is not only for me, but also for other YouTubers. So, the controls for player movement and vehicle movement are different in the game. Overall, I really like the way it works. I have no problem in driving when the car goes up, up-right or up-left. But when the car goes down, down-right or down-left, I often confuse the turn buttons, because when the vehicle is driving down the map, in order to turn right you need to use the left button, and accordingly, to turn left, you need to use the right button ) Because of this, I often direct the car into different obstacles) The same thing I noticed with other players in their videos. QUESTION for game developers: Can I ask you to add a setting to the game that would invert vehicle controls right = left left = right when the vehicle is going down / down-right / down-left? How I imagine how this could work. The game tracks the position of the car, but only after the player releases the turn button while moving. If the vehicle is pointing at an angle of -110 deg or +110 deg, the game inverts the controls to the right / left. I understand that not all players need this, and therefore such a function could be enabled or disabled in the game settings. I am not a game developer, and perhaps the solution I proposed looks stupid, nevertheless, I am sure that the problem with transport management worries not only me. I hope the convenience of transport control will someday become more comfortable) Thank you very much for a cool, well-developed game in my favorite genre.
  2. Go halfway down for a more organized version of this. Kinda wish Overgrowth got even worse, such as the roads eventually being covered in grass, and maybe after a year trees will start growing on the edges of roads, and eventually cover the road as well. Would also be cool if some walls in buildings also started having holes form in them, small enough that you can only see through them, or large enough that you can walk through them. (Hell, if there were versions of buildings that had completely collapsed that would be super cool as well) Would also be cool if cars left in a grassy area long enough Would get overgrown, and would require some extra maintenance to remove the vines and crap from the car before you could drive it. Also we need semi trucks, and an event where a truck is blocking an entire street. That'd be cool too. Ah what else.... perhaps also taps should slowly lose the stored water in them, so you can't just get fresh water easily when going to a new area. Perhaps maybe even water stored too long could potentially become tainted, specially if it's in an open air container? Would also be great if there were more events to make stuff feel a bit more chaotic (of feel like the aftermath of it) such as car wrecks through fences, car buildup behind a police or military line, hell maybe even entire blocks burned down instead of a single house. Maybe even a chance for a street to have a barricade of furniture, of be blocked off with a wire fence with holes in it. (maybe this would have police vehicles behind it too. Idk) Oh yeah, power being on in burned out houses needs to be fixed too. Would also be neat if eventually metal objects other than vehicles would start rusting (street lights, metal doors, ect) and streetlights also having vines grow on them, however it lining up with the sprite. If you dont want to read through all of my random giberish -Grass can eventually entirely cover a road, and bushes can start growing as well. -Some buildings will have holes form in their outer walls after an extended period of time. This can be prevented by repairing the wall if you want to keep your base secure, however will add more of an apocalytpic feel -Vehicles left in areas where grass or shrubbery is growing will have plants grow over them a bit, which will require you to remove before it can be driven, or you can pull it out of the weeds with a trailer (bit more difficult to pull for a few moments, then the remains of the weeds will need to be removed as well -After a long time (1 or 2 ingame years) trees will start growing on roads (Perhaps they only spawn once a year or something so you have to do the most basic of maintenece once or so a year to keep the roads drivable, but not soo often it becomes a major nuisance.) - (Not in the original text) vines can grow around objects left outside (trashcans, streetlights, ect.) also, vines should onyl start growing if the house is besides dirt or if grass is growing in the street -(somewhat unrelated) We need some basic mechanics to allow semis/18 wheelers to be added in whether in mods or not. Essentially allowing a hitch point to not be at the complete rear of the vehicle, and restricting certain trailers to certain vehicles. Thats probably all that would be needed before modders could make semis -Water would eventually become tainted and unsafe to drink if left alone long enough (Water from the taps would last longer than boiled water due to chlorine/ect inside of it.) open air containers would get dirty much faster, if sealed containers go bad at all -Some way for global power to not affect certain buildings (burned out houses should not have power) would be neat if the whole power system got a lot more complicated, such as power lines which could be destroyed to cut off power to certain areas faster.(Perhaps could also be used to power larger areas with generators too.) -Vehicle events which have damage to the environment, such as car wrecks through small fences (or even large fences and walls if holes in them are added - Metal objects having rust forming on them after long enough would look good too. - if it would ever be possible buildings collapsing after long enough would be neat (only way I can think of doing this is if its done off-screen with a loud crashing sound, and a copy of the building is made with it collapsed. SOme buildings could even partially collapse. idk.) Heres an example someone made of some overgrowth And thats all. I'll probably post ideas here a lot since I now know its here.
  3. With the new update the vehicles accelerate slow when driving forward, but they accelerate way faster when driving backwards. The vehicles when driving in first gear, they going immediately to 3000rpm. And it stays there until you hit 30mph. 2 gear 3500rpm. And so on. It does the same in cruise control 5mph. 3000rpm 25mph also 3000rpm. Before the update the vehicles and the sound behave more dynamic, now it feels more static.
  4. This started with the .54 update. When looting, I leave the engine of my car running, thus allowing for a quick get away. I now am aware of my car's engine revving on it's own, parked out by the street, while I'm in the house looting. When it first happened, I thought OMG, the zombies are stealing my car but don't know how to take it out of park. Every car I have used is doing it. It's a bit startling when you're trying to sneak around the house and be quiet and you hear your car's engine rev out by the street. I named my last car "Christine".
  5. 1) The first thing you want to do, as with most mods is to create your mods folder structure, use the image below as a reference, replacing MOD_NAME with the name of your mod: Don't worry about the files shown above, you will be creating them as you follow this guide, just make sure to remember, anytime you see "MOD_NAME" in this guide, replace that with the name you chose for your mod. 2) In your "..mods/MOD_NAME" folder, create your "mod.info" text file which contains the following code: Remember to replace all "MOD_NAME"'s with the actual name of your mod. 3) In the same folder, create/place your MOD_NAME.png , this will be the thumbnail used in game as the poster/picture for your mod. 4) Next up, in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/lua/client" folder, create your MOD_NAME.lua file with the following code inside: This is the script that will load your model and scripts into the game, it also controls the spawn rate for the car in each type of zone as well as providing the vehicle mechanic overlay. Remember to replace all instances of "MOD_NAME" with the actual name you chose for your mod. 5) Next, in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/scripts/vehicles" folder, create your MOD_NAME.txt file containing the following code: This script example contains all of the parameters to control the simulation of the vehicle, such as engine power, gear ratios, collision cube and much more. You will (hopefully) find it well commented to give you an idea of what each parameter does. You can look in the games "media\scripts\vehicles" folder for a vanilla vehicle script that more closely reflects the vehicle you are adding rather than starting with the example above, have a good look through them all to get a sense of the different templates you can use and the various changes that can be made to different components. 6) Now you need to (if you have not already) make the 3d model for your vehicle. We suggest using Blender, but as long as you're experienced in 3d modelling, any program that can export .ply files should work, just make sure your faces are triangulated, in Blender you can do this by selecting your model in Edit mode then pressing Ctrl + T. Then drag and drop the exported ply file onto the converter supplied below (unzip the below file, drag your .ply directly onto the .exe, do not double click the exe), it will output a new txt file with the same name as the .ply in the same directory. Copy the new .txt file into your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/models" folder as "Vehicles_MOD_NAME.txt This is the .ply to PZ convertor: PZ_PLYtoPZconverter.zip 7) Now it's time to create your vehicles texture files, these should all go into the "mods/MOD_NAME/media/textures/Vehicles" folder. First up is your "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell.png" , this is the main texture image for your vehicle and needs to be 512x512 pixels, as do all of your textures, below is an example: Next there are 6 different overlay/detail png's to create, the first is for the vehicle lights ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Lights.png"): Then the vehicle rust ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Rust.png"): The next 2 image examples ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell_Damaged01.png" and "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Shell_Damaged02.png") are to show light and heavy damage, respectively, on the vehicle's shell. They are used to represent dents in the bodywork: The next 2 image examples ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Overlays_Damaged01.png" and "Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Overlays_Damaged02.png") are very similar to the previous 2 except they are for showing damage on windows and lights as well as scratched on the body work: The last file we need is the vehicle colour mask ("Vehicles_MOD_NAME_Mask.png"), which should also be placed in your "mods/MOD_NAME/media/textures/Vehicles" folder. This tells the game which parts of your vehicle texture correspond to which part of your vehicle model and is needed to display damage, lowered windows and removed elements etc: Here the colour values to be used: Copy your complete mod folder structure into your C:\Users\YourUsernameHere\Zomboid\Mods folder, load the game, turn the mod on in the mod menu and start a new game, your new vehicle is now ready to be found and taken for a spin. Finally, here: ZAZ968M.zip - you can find an example vehicle mod using the above instructions. Notice the included example mod uses a slightly different process with its textures/overlays. The main texture is transparent while the detail has been shifted onto the vehicle_lights .png. This allows the game to automatically and procedurally generate different colours of your car when they are spawned in. Happy Modding!
  6. Hello and welcome to my tutorial. It covers full workflow of vehicle creation for PZ. If you are a complete beginner in 3D modelling, you'll have to watch/read additional tutorials, I won't cover every aspect of model creation and 'where this button is located'. I divide vehicle creation in these stages: 1) Modelling 2) Wheels texture and modelling 3) Texturing 4) Packing files in folders 5) Editing scripts and .lua 6) In-game editing and tests 7) Workshop publish STAGE 1 - MODELLING Today I am creating a 1960 Ford Falcon I prefer using blender as it is my everyday 3d modelling software. Now, find references for your vehicle and ideally it will be a blueprint/outline scheme, like this one: There are some tips in modelling for PZ: 1) Do not care too much about topology and good shading. There is no actual shading in game, only windows have reflections. 2) Avoid n-gons or triangulate them before export 3) DO NOT make edges to outline body panels/parts. All dividing of parts will be done with texture mask. You can do it in UVs if there will be a point for that. 4) Place spindiel imitations in wheel wells to hide rear part of wheel models 5) In the UVs parts of body have to be straight-oriented without any non-90 degrees rotation, so pixels in texture will lay parallel with polygon flow. 6) To avoid physics artifacts in game import model of one of vanilla game cars models to your scene and model in consistent scale. Or import mine, that is available in the end of topic. This is what I consider a well done model There is nothing special in UV unwrapping process, just remember to place the least amount of seams possible and keep island aligned. Here are the UVs of my model: I've unwrapped the model without applied mirror modifier, so now we will have to texture just one half of the car. I'll fix mirroring later. STAGE 2 - WHEELS There are many ways to make a wheel and texture it, but I'll show the most efficient one. Make the wheel's face with simple materials, but unwrap the 'road touching part' to flat surface, like this: Then place an orthographic camera facing the wheel, scale it to fit the whole wheel-dish. Place a ring with emission material to light the wheel. Switch your renderer to Cycles and go to camera view, now use a rendered shading mode to adjust materials and lights to your taste. Set rendering resolution to something like 120x120-175-175 for best results Check the 'transparent' box in film settings to have alpha backround in texture: Now increase the sample count to something like 512-1024 and hit render. You will end up with a result of a ready-to-go wheel texture: The example file with scene for rendering and the model of this wheel you can download here: *google drive .blend file* Now make a lowpoly model of the wheel to use this texture on. I prefer using 18-24 edge circles for wheels. The unwrapping will be later, but eventually you'll end up with this: This method takes 10-15 minutes when you get used to it and gives a stunning and clear result. STAGE 3 - TEXTURING NOTE: I use a pretty complicated way of texturing and adding light to model. All rules of using textures the default way are covered in "HOW TO CREATE NEW VEHICLE MODS" topic by RingoD123, one of PZ devs. You can access it here: *boop* I'll show you my way, using Substance Painter to apply lighting and fake chrome parts to model. But first comes the base color and details of the car, so let's dive into it. Create a texture with 0 alpha and resolution 256x256. You can go for 512x512, but personally I like pixelated look of lo-res texture. Here are the settings for initial image: To preview the texture you are painting with different car colors, use this node setup. But switch filtering mode from "Linear" to "Closest", I forgot to do it on screenshot. There are two types of texture details: somewhat transparent and absolutely opaque. Half-transparent parts will be affected by car color, so they are mostly shadow/highlight details. Headlights, fixtures and things like that have to be opaque and painted with 100% brush hardness. It is easier to keep 3d view just to see what are you doing and paint texture in image editing mode, right there: First, paint the outlines of doors and other opening parts. Here are some brush hardness values: 0.2 - Outline shadow 0.5 - Outline 1.0 - Fake chrome and rubber window sealing Some work in progress screenshots Now when you have windows frames, save the image you just painted and go to photoshop and mask out glass sections like that Well, time for Substance Painter. You can use photoshop gradients for windows and blender lighting for lighting of the body, but I'll use SP "Baked lighting" filter for that, and for chrome especially. I will briefly describe what I've done in SP: 1) Mask out windows, give them mirror metal material and add a filter to them 2) Mask out chrome parts, made them mirror metal and added the same filter with slightly different settings. 3) Apply the same filter to all body parts left. 4) Add a position gradient to the windows Now I have this result, it is not shaded model, just basecolor: Also export the AO map you baked in SP. You can download file with this scene to look through and get ideas using this link: *boop* Now paint additional details you want on the car and open Photoshop. This is your layers layout: Now save it as .psd for future color editing and as .png to see what the you've done. Plug .png direcly as BaseColor in shader settings. Set your shading setting like this: And check if everything looks ok. This is my result: And this is the vehicle's look with wheels that we made before Sweet, isn't it? Now, it is time to get rid of mirroring. You can make new UV, bake it and... get A LOT of offset artifacts resulting in jagged pixel edges. There is a lazy but effective method: 1) In the UV editor place cursor in the 0,0 coordinates. 2) Set Pivot to 2D cursor: 3) Scale all UV islands to 0.5 EXACTLY 4) Apply mirror modifier to your model. Now select FACES of any half of the model and move it in UVs on Y by value 0.5 EXACTLY or you'll eventually mess everything up. 5) In Photoshop expand canvas of your PSD file we made before 6) Duplicate everything and move to the upper left corner, like in UVs. You can merge color layer(s) to operate color on export more easily. Now you have half of the texture empty... You do not want to waste it, right? Then drop in the wheel texture here without scaling, and you won't need additional texture file for it! 7) Create a layer beneath all others and paint it black or grey to cover alpha-holes in the textures. 8 ) Now unwrap the wheel to this new texture and let it shine! We painted the car and fixed mirroring. DOWNLOAD THE .PSD FILE: *bloop* There are 3 more types of textures to make: 1) Rust 2) Damage (1 or 2 levels, I'm lazy, I prefer using single one) 3) ID Color Mask or just Mask It wasn't possible to make them right with mirroring. Everything about these textures are explained clearly in Ringo's guide, again: *boop* I'll just show results I ended up with. Now you have to use 512x512 clear images for these textures, do not forget it. RUST Painted it with jitter brush and 0.2 hardness. To see what I am doing used the same node setup, as for base texture. DAMAGE Painted gradients with black and white with 0.1 hardess with repetitive strokes. MASK Mask texture tells game where are separate parts of car: doors, windows, lights and others. Every part has it's own color in palette, you can find color table in Ringo's guide. Copy and paste color HEX to use it in blender brush or fill tools. I've missed some of the parts because they do not really matter. AEUGH Texturing is finished. Go to photoshop and make all color variations you want and save them as .png, name them Vehicles_[vehicle name]_ Vehicle name mustn't containt spaces These are color palettes of my car: Now you have to export your vehicle body and wheel models. Copy them to an empty scene and save as separate file. If you used blender default orientations (front, back, right, left, top), then rotate the car on Z axis by 180 degrees. Game rotates it for some reason, so you'll have to do it. Now position everything in scene like this and continue to export settings. Export body and wheel separately with these settings: STAGE 5 - Packing files in folders The folder hierarchy and naming the files you can find in Ringo's guide. The mod file and all of my project files you will be able to download in the end of this topic. make up an Id name for your car. It has to be short, but unique and do not contain spaces. For this car I use '60falcon'. _____________________________________________ workshop.txt properties of the mod for Steam Workshop _____________________________________________ mod.info properties of the mod for in-game mod menu _____________________________________________ models_X folder -> vehicles this folder contains 3d meshes of the vehicle - body and wheel _____________________________________________ textures -> vehicles easy to guess, all vehicle textures are placed here null.png - completely transparent image, used as placeholder later on _____________________________________________ scripts -> vehicles there shoud be a .txt file named with you vehicle's ID name. Open it up and follow these instructions: change invertX to 'TRUE' if vehicle appears to be mirrored by left and right in game. Do not care about scale, offset and other geometric parameters. Insert all your color variation textures as shown below: All vehicle driving parameters are self-explanatory. Remember to set seats count, I'm creating a car with 4 seats. If you want to make less seats or add new, delete passenger[Seat code] records or add new. Also remember Seat[position] records down below. Add or delete the templates, loaded from Game default files: _____________________________________________ LUA SCRIPTS lua -> server -> vehicles -> [car id name]dis.lua Vehicle trunk type distribution file. There is a file with all vehicle distribution types in game files, I'll put it in project folder in the end if the article. This is game files distibution types, select one of them in respect to the vehicle type you are creating. I'll use CarNormal type for Ford Falcon. This is what distribution lua file has to be: _____________________________________________ lua -> shared -> [car id name]SpawnList.lua This file describes spawn zones of your car in game world with certain chance. I've typed in all default zones of spawn, you just have to change the chance and set [Base.60falcon] to [Base.(your car id name)] _____________________________________________ lua -> shared -> Translate -> EN -> IG_UI_EN.txt This is the name of the car in UI - keys name, mechanics window name and such. STAGE 6 - In-game editing and tests Launch PZ and disable all mod exept the one you will be debugging. Now close the game and go to Steam. In application setting set startup parameter to -debug It enables many debug options in-game. Now launch the Game again and, if menu doesn't appear, you've done something wrong in lua scripts. Check them for probles, and I hope, you'll figure out what is wrong. Now start a new game in world with no zombies and big amount of cars. Leave the house and find any car vibing in the street. Right click, -> Vehicle -> Set Script -> [your car ID name]. Car will switch to yours. This is what I've got on first time in-game spawning: YEET, it is all coming along. But wheel positions are a bit off, and we have to place the entering areas of doors. Go to Right click on car -> [DEBUG] Vehicle -> Vehicle Editor. Chassis Place extents and physics shape to outline the car Areas These are access areas to different parts of the car. There is nothing to describe, really, just place them where you can explain it and continue to next section Right click in mechanics tab to enable cheat options for the car. Now right click in mechanics panel. Here you can get key for that car or repair it. Final result in different variations Make a suitable preview image for your mod and crop it in Photoshop to 256x256. Place it in mod folder as preview.png In game menu go WORKSHOP -> create or update mod -> Go to your profile workshop items and find the new mod. Add the description, more screenshots and set visibility to 'Public' ALL PROJECT FILES: *YEET* ZE END Congratulations if you followed my guide to this point. Comment any issues or mistakes I've made.
  7. As the title says, I can't leave the car anymore. I just drove on the street and did hit the fence, it catapulted me into the air, landing on a burned car. Now Im on top of it and can't do anything about it. See the Video Link for details.

    '88 VW Golf Mk2

    My latest mod, You can get it on steam here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2516123638
  9. I think so far there was one problem is that the view from driving are still too short for players, I can't keep my speed up to 60, because I can't stop getting crash into on something, I think mabye if we can change our view from the driving to look even further ahead will be good, I mean we already able to do that by aim our weapon, so why not make this one too? just use our mouse to contorl our view, that will be good, right?

    heater car

    The heater works strangely, it is very rare, I notice it for the second time in all the time. The first image shows that it is turned off and the temperature of the cabin rises, in the second it is turned on for heating, but the temperature decreases.

  12. As the title says, this is a Range Rover Classic vehicle mod, it's an iconic vehicle and my first try at PZ modding. Model, textures and everything else is my own work. I have started from scratch 6 days ago and it's almost done. I just need to figure out the technical details with stats and performance. I also have a question for you experienced modders out there, how to add custom wheels since the original tutorial here on the forum has no info on it. Got it.
  13. Good day survivors! I was curious what others thought about having an option to uninstall vehicle parts directly to the ground. Vehicle parts, like furniture, are often heavy and even a single tire can have your character struggling with the weight. Furniture that is too heavy can be picked up and then it immediately falls to the ground (as the item) if it is too heavy for your inventory. And even just a minute of stripping a car for parts can have your inventory looking like this: I will concede I don't know the best way to deal with car parts you do want to go straight to your inventory, like taking a tire from one car to immediately put on to another, but that's why I've just considered this as something toggleable in the Accessibility tab. The scenario I'm in is me constantly bouncing back and forth between dropping heavy items and uninstalling parts, but I still usually end up in a lot of pain from the all the constantly adding heavy items to my inventory.
  14. Vanilla zomboid with no mods, IWBUMS Build 41.47 version as of December 2nd When driving, if you're in a forage area you can right click and get "Forage" context item. If you do that directly under your character's seat (have to get it perfect) you can start foraging and collecting items while in the vehicle, and you can drive away and continue to collect from the spot you started. This bug is repeatable and easy to recreate. I cannot provide a video but I will provide a screenshot that show the speedometer proving the car is moving, the context menu forage option, and the forage window progress bar and collected items. Second screenshot showing that no mods are being used and the date of the bug being recreated.

    Towing car mod

    You will be able to tow cars using a tow rope. Now you don't have to leave your favorite car to pick up a new one. New item (tow rope), custom towing physics. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2241990680 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Works with mod "Filibuster Rhymes' Used Cars!". And with other mods, that add new vehicles. Permission : Ask for permission Video overview / tutorial: Supported languages: (Need help with translate) - English - Russian (Also need help redrawing the icons and the cover) Enjoy
  16. Just found a bug where if you hold spacebar, shift and mash W you can effectively increase your acceleration to ludicrous amounts (I was using the speed demon trait). I don't have any mods that I think would interfere with the handling of vehicles but I'm not really sure.
  17. I decided to make a car towing mod. I have some results, but this is not a simple mod. I changed the source code of the game (decompiled, modified, compiled) and wrote a mod for lua. Stopped at the current state of the mod. (There is no point in continuing if the developers do not add the necessary code for the mod to the game and decompilation does not perfectly restore the code, so the decompiled files crash the game (I think the deadlock occurs)) I added the following code to the game source code: 1. OnVehicleUpdate event - trigger when vehicle update 2. Change vehicle position (like setDebugZ(float)) public void setDebugXYZ(float x, float y, float z) { this.tempTransform.set(this.jniTransform); this.tempTransform.origin.x = x - WorldSimulation.instance.offsetX; this.tempTransform.origin.y = z ; this.tempTransform.origin.z = y - WorldSimulation.instance.offsetY; setWorldTransform(this.tempTransform); } This is not real towing. I'm teleporting transport now. Joints are needed for real towing. Now, as I understand it, the developers use the modified Bullet engine, and there are no joints in engine java api now. What I want to achieve with this functionality: 1. Towing a car with a correct turn and physics similar to realism (imitation) 2. For towing you need a special device or a special car 3. Towing affects the movement of the car. (Depending on the weight of the towed vehicle) What I've done: How can I submit a request to developers for the methods I need? Write what you think about the mod idea. If there are a lot of people interested, perhaps the developers will implement the required functionality.
  18. Good evening. I just lost my character to a really bizarre and frustrating glitch. I was in a School Bus surrounded by zombies, and have been running them over in a desparate attempt to escape. Suddenly, the bus stopped. Now, this may have been due to the engine breaking apart, but that turned out not to be the case because the bus restarted and proceeded to move when I pressed the movement keys. The bus reaches about one RPM and less than five miles per hour, switches to drive, and travels about two or three feet before the key pops out and the bus stops. I reinsert the key, turn the engine, and then the bus starts again. I move the bus again; the key jumps out of the car. It does not work. Again. I thought it was because I was sitting on zombies, but I eventually broke free and the bus continued to stop. Again, when I cranked the engine, the engine light was green and the bus moved. When I was cranking the engine, it was yellow if the engine didn't start. The heater still works. The battery still has charge. The bus has all four tires. All bus components are present. The engine is not at zero percent. Nothing else with the bus is going wrong. It is not the engine failing, but the bus key jumping out of the ignition! I eventually got out of the bus and was mauled to death by zombies. I have a backed up saved game, but I'm still not happy with this bug. Thank you for any assistance you may render. Warm regards and warm bodies, -TURTLESHROOM

  22. Good evening. In my most recent "Zomboid" game, I accidentally jumped out of my running vehicle by pressing the "E" key and was unable to get back in, despite pressing it again and despite the green square being highlighted. I popped out of the car by pressing "D". Consequently, the zombies that I mowed over devoured me, and I committed an act of Save Scumming because of the accident. Restarting the game at my last back up, I showed up back in my base and walked to where the vehicle was. It was there, but the key I had left in the ignition was not present. It vanished. I am using the latest "I Will Back Up My Save" branch on Build Forty-One. Thank you for any assistance you may render in future updates. Warm regards and bodies, -TURTLESHROOM
  23. It will be no damage to anything if you turn off the engine but still can move on if your speed enough. This can be used to cross hordes at high speed without damage and stop your car immediately.

    Vehicle Parts Repair

    I'd like to create a mod to repair vehicle parts. I know that there is already a mod there. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1558779191 But I would like to make it as realistic as possible. Therefore, I wonder what is the real difficulty of repairing auto parts? And how can this be done most nice and neat in terms of game design?
  25. My suggestion is that the vehicle access "area" in build 41+ is made easier to engage with. Either by allowing access when not completely facing the vehicle or by making it slightly bigger, especially on 2 door vehicles. With the new animations and sluggish turning when your going anything faster than a slow amble it's awkward to make sure you hit the right spot. Might just be me and if so πŸ˜” I'll assume it'll remain the same and I'll make sure I'm never in a hurry to enter my vehicle. But wanted to post as this has happened to me a few times and when you have start again because you couldn't open a door when moving what I consider slow, can be a bit of a pain. Here is the scenario: You picked up a bit more heat than you expected on a loot run and are now high tailing it back to your pimped out ride. Should be a simple crouched jog back over the road and jump into your sweet ride and off into the sunset you got. However you've a bit of momentum and overshoot it!! 😱 Now you cannot enter the door, no drama I'll step back and then..... Run past it again!?! At this point I'm questioning my characters mental aptitude, and πŸ’©ing my pants as it only takes a Zed to stroke your back in Apocalypse and you're all but dead. So with lighting wit Run around the vehicle to the other side only to have to same thing happen again 🀬 Now obviously the best fix is to not run towards your vehicle. However when you have a 7+ Zeds on your tail in a tight group with more following behind, walking isn't always possible. Interested to hear others experiences with this.
