  1. I was thinking what if someone could make it so the zombies hold forks and knives (1 in each hand) while they chase and try to feast on you? The zombies would use the folk and knife to try and stab the player and they could still bite as well. But not scratch or lacerate since they're holding the folk and knife and can't freely use their nails. They may be able to use the fork and knife to grapple the player kind of like when barehanded though this would take health away. When the player is killed by the zombies you could see them feeding on your corpse with the folk and knife before you reanimate. If you die without being infected if the zombies find your body they can continuously feast on it. This would create a unique challenge to the player since the zombies would basically be using melee weapons to a very limited degree. Also it serves as good nightmare fuel and could even make the player panic more than with normal zombies! If the player kills one of these zombies they can get the folk and knife. I've imagined this funny scenario in my head for awhile and maybe someone could make it into reality.
  2. Well as the title says, I find it very repetetive that zeds allways fall in two ways, when they fall on their back it allways looks a bit weird to me that every zed has its right arm spread, I think adding more ways for the corpses to fall would add some needed variety in that aspect. Also for my secondary suggestion which I don't think we will ever get but it would be fun, to have some zeds without some limbs, maybe zed without arm, crawlers without legs?
  3. I noticed you can't tell how damaged a door, window, wall, etc. in the game is when it's being attacked by a zombie for example. Like a fresh door looks exactly the same as an "about to be busted down by a zombie" door. Basically you can't tell when a structure is about to give until it gives. So what I was thinking is structures such as windows could get more and more cracks as the zombies bang on it creating some nerve racking suspense for the player! Doors and walls could get cracked and crooked as the undead bang on it too. Barricades can get mangled up similarly. This way the player could tell if they must spring into action immediately to survive or if they've still got time! Also useful for determining how urgent it is to address trapped zombies trying to bang their way out of the rooms they're stuck in. As for hostile npcs and players this would be useful for knowing when the survivors you turned down giving supplies for are about to bash in! So when the undead or hostile survivors come a knocking you know how urgent it is to get into gear and fight back!
  4. • 41.73 • Multiplayer • Dedicated Ubuntu 20.04 LTS • No. • Still occurs on new save • Reproduction steps: Navigate to SanboxVars and set the following values: PopulationMultiplier = 0.0 PopulationStartMultiplier = 0.0 PopulationPeakMultiplier = 0.0 Start a dedicated server session. Obeserve zeds spawn in houses when approaching them, ignoring the zombie population settings. This behaviour can be observed through server statistics. As I understand all the lots on the map have an unremovable spawn trigger with a chance of spawning zeds when a player approaches one. This at the moment is only avoidable running a bash script loop which deletes zeds in a specified area, but is not reasonable as it lags down the server. while true; do { echo 'removezombies -x X -y Y -z Z -radius R' sleep Ns } done I would be grateful for any info considering this issue and ways to resolve this without loop scripts. UPD: Zeds spawn with a completely black ZombieSpawnMap as well. Currently no ingame way to disable zombies is implemented.
  5. I got this idea from my personal experience with the game. See, when I'm playing with my first created survivor, and he dies, I forgive that initial immersion in the world, because the second survivor is still inside his home, even though the apocalypse in his city has started more than 1 month ago! This is not immersive, nor does it make sense. After all, this game is a simulation of an apocalypse. The second survivor must, as the name he describes suggests, be surviving! Whoever reads this agrees with me? Because of this surreal reason, I came here to propose that you, developers, or modders, create a Zed Story for the second survivor (and later), which suggests that he lives in a city that is really going through an apocalypse, this way, maintaining the immersion of the city and the game. I got tired of deleting my game because I was not immersed in the second created survivor. I want him to have a story, like having just had a car accident, and having a cut on his leg, making you rip his shirt to stop the blood. Or you're camping out near the city, hungry for your food to run out. This type of story makes you immersed that he spent 1 month surviving and suffocating as his first character, however, he does not do as well as his first survivor, and you need to continue seeing a dramatic and immersive story of a survivor , controlled by you. That's all I'm asking for. Enough is inside the house as if none of the dead were walking in your garden or eating your neighbors for more than 1 month! I also suggest that Lore's story about the second survivor be told according to his chosen profession. Some got suggested: If he is a policeman, for example, a story that would fit with him could be an accident in his vehicle, he just got close to the chosen city of spawning, in a neighborhood, he is bleeding slightly due to a scratch caused in the accident , or cut, and it is necessary to tear your shirt to stop the bleeding. If he is a lumberjack or forest ranger, he may be surviving in the woods, at a camp, near the road to a store or gas station in the chosen city. The food he collected and that helped him survive until then is over and he is a little hungry. Other stories that suggest how the second survivor is surviving the apocalypse when you start to control it: Inside a house with sheets on the windows and doors. Inside the gas station store. Inside a supermarket with an empty backpack. Inside a car at the entrance to the city, but the fuel ran out. Near a campfire, with rice. This fire may have been built near a city lake. or not having any food, just the campfire warming the survivor, and he starts to sit next to him, warming up. Inside a hospital, with a bandage wound. (I know you have a mod with a similar start, it's a good idea to dive in yourself) And it can contain as many different immersive scenarios as you developers want to add. Thanks for reading. Sorry about my English.
  6. I've set my sandbox settings to active at night and zombies to sprinters, so during day time they move slowly and are not dangerous, but during night time they can sprint, making them dangerous. My first run went well, but my next few runs were broken. I start at 9am, zombies are walking, a few mintues later, I run on a 30 mintue day cycle, they start running during day and night! I have a few mods, but these do not interfere with the ai of the zombie, meaning it may be a bug with the game. There have been many cases in the past for such bug. I really enjoyed the nocturnal sprinter zeds, but now I can no longer play that certain mode due to this "Active during inactive times". Im currently on IWBUMS 41.31 with several IWBUMS 41 mods that don't interfere or alter the ai of the zombies.
  7. When zombies fall from high places they don't make "fall" animation, they just keep walking into you. in the image you can see upstairs broken doors, the zeds came from there.
  8. Simple mod that gives the zombies a chance to spawn without clothes! LINK

  10. I Was thinking that is unrealistic that a zombie can stay years walking , so my idea is that when the zombie spawn it start like a internal clock that it Will die in 2 weeks or more time (you can change it).Whit these we can have a balanced population of zeds , because whit migration they can go to the city and repopulate it.
  11. Ok I say that if the dev can create like a Alfa Zombie that can control the one horde if you kill him that is very hard because the zombies can defend him. If you kill the Alfa zombie the horde will scatter and then if the zeds found another zombie Alfa they can form another horde or the zombies that no have one can create 1 horde whithout a alfa zombie (vanilla hordes) .Sometimes hordes can have like 2 alfa zombies depend the size , the zeds will follow the alfa zombies until he decease. Alfa zombies will spawn sometimes spawn but they can help to the difficult in the game , so zombies can for they own hordes in the first days and then alfa zombies start to appear (you can put in the option menu if you want them or change the probability to spawn)
