  1. Update 11/3 Hey guy! This is now working on the stable branch! Hey dudes, I finally got the compilation of my cars completed, plus a few extra. I've got all the masks working, although the damage textures are kinda half-assed. The script files are fine tuned (for the most part). But yeah, hope ya guys enjoy! Link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filed etails/?id=1510950729 I owe a HUGE thanks to Fenris_Wolf of ORGM Rechambered for helping with, well, all the lua files, haha. I'm as good as code illiterate, so without him, this wouldn't have gone anywhere. Car list:
  2. I had a fully loaded police truck when I saved and exited the game. It was parked and turned off about 20ft from my location. Loaded up a few hours later and the car was gone. This was parked by the rear exit to the movie theater by the mall. EDIT: Another odd effect. The backdoor to the movie theater is now locked and it was NOT when I last played. As far as I can see, the pile of dead zombies I was disposing out back are still there. So, car and contents vanished, door locked itself. The trunk was nearly full with a few tote bags, a school bag, and a hiking bag loaded mostly non perishable food, building supplies, tools and some guns and ammo.
  3. I've tried tor each out to people on the indiestone discord, I've done everything ever article i can find on here to try and fix it and have no idea what i can do to fix it. whenever i try to toggle the Vehicle Info or Car radial i just get lua errors Vehicle Info: function: onMechanic -- file: ISVechicleMenu.lua line # 395 function: onKeyPressed -- file: ISVehiclemenu.lua line # 969 Car Radial: function: showRadialMenu -- file: ISVehicleMenu.lua line # 54 function: onKeyStartPressed -- file: ISUIHandler.lua line # 56 I have no clue how to fix this, or read LUA, I've tried everything I could find about it, I don't know Lua code at all so yeah, maybe i'm an idiot but help would be appreciated Al mods are disabled, i thought maybe ORGM's settings might be conflicting so i disabled all mods i had, i checked my servers settings for vehicles as well, easy use isn't enabled, i have no idea why this isn't working
  4. **THIS IS A NEW FEATURE THAT CURRENTLY ONLY WORKS ON THE WEATHER TEST BRANCH, MAKE SURE YOU ARE SUBSCRIBED TO THE WEATHER BETA BRANCH BEFORE TESTING** 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!
  5. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where the vehicle tilesets are. I'm new to the game and would much rather build maps than actually play at this point. But going through Tilezed's tilesets, I don't see any for vehicles. Could someone please point me in the right direction? I'm working on roads to start with and having an in game car on my map for reference would be fantastic!
  6. So I just got this game a couple weeks ago, I was playing around with settings to get better performance and now I don't know if its something ive done or a bug but car textures are missing. The shadows are on the ground and I can still get in the car and check the trunk but the actually textures aren't showing. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas? Loving the game so far!
  7. Hello. I've been playing the latest IWBUMS build (as of 10/10/2018) version 40.25(Steam). I run windows 10 (version 1709), and a gtx 1060 6gb, ryzen 5 2600, 8gb ram. My screen resolution is 1440p (I think i'm running the game at 1080p though) The bug/s I've noticed is that for me the recent addition of shiny windows on cars doesn't work unless post processing is switched off in the video options. (I have also noticed that rain doesn't seem to "splash" when it hits the ground, but that might just be me not knowing what to look for.) I have updated my graphcis drivers, and so can't see any reason for it not to work (I have also validated my game files), so I am assuming this is a bug, and not intended behaviour. As far as I know, the only way to reproduce the bug is essentially to switch post processing on and off, and compare the windows before and after.
  8. Good evening. This is something I can't explain in pictures, because it's in motion. I can, however, describe it. I am also experiencing lag like I've never imagined, although I attribute that to the "Super Survivors" and my entry into a place I have not been before, which requires new Survivors to be generated. (Trying it without the "Super Survivors" enabled only caused monster lag when there were large numbers of zombies.) When I summon a horde of zombies to follow me in my car (so that I may either ignite them or run them over), the occasional event in which the horde gets so big that the zombies literally stop my car happens. This is normal, and usually, my car can't move more than a few pixels for some time until I break out. That is where the problem arises. Zombie hordes keep concentrating on one side of my car, and the game clips as my car is forced in the direction the zombies are pushing. I have no control over my car until it crashes into something. It's as if my car is on black glass! When I plough into a horde of zombies and they stop me, the usual pixel-by-pixel shoving begins, but once I break out of the horde, my car suddenly lunges at full speed, as if the horde was a chain that had been broken, in the direction it was going. I cannot control, break, or reverse course into the car unless and until it crashes in some way. It's as if my car is on black glass! I should mention, BTW, that it is in November, the temperature is approximately thirty two degrees Farenheit, and it is raining. This, coupled with lag, means my car crashes into everything and the game keeps lagging, so even when I am in control, I still crash into things. Even with all the Mods and the special Advanced Map, I never experienced any lag like this, and I've noticed a lot of change in vehicle mechanics and behavior since the IWBUMS V40.14 version. (Namely, the positive benefits are that I can run over zombies more efficiently and vehicles cause more damage to zombies.) Is this Working As Designed, or have I encountered a bug? Thank you for any assistance you may render. -TURTLESHROOM
  9. 1) First create a folder structure for your mod, call the first folder something like "MyCarReskinMod". Inside that create a "media" folder, inside your media folder create 2 more folders, one called "textures" and one called "scripts". Inside the texture folder create a folder called "Vehicles" and inside the scripts folder create a folder called "vehicles". Your final folder structure should look like: MyCarReskinMod media textures Vehicles scripts vehicles Don't forget to place your mod.info and poster.png files inside your first folder alongside the media folder. 2) Copy, paste and rename the vehicles main texture that you want to edit/reskin from the ProjectZomboid/Media/Textures/Vehicles folder to your media/textures/vehicles folder. Use this texture along with the vehicles texture mask (also found in the same folder) as a template for your skin. The vehicle mask is listed in the code snippet below ("textureMask = ...") and dictates what part of your vehicle texture gets assigned to each part of the 3d vehicle. 3) Find and copy the original script of the vehicle you want to reskin from the ProjectZomboid/Media/Scripts/Vehicles folder and paste it into your media/scripts/vehicles folder. Below is what the start of your vehicle script should look like, in this example we are editing the taxi skin: Change the line "texture = Vehicles/Vehicle_CarTaxiShell" to "texture = Vehicles/"YourVehicleSkinPNGNameHere" and save. Add your entire mod folder structure into your users/zomboid/mods folder, enable the mod on the in game mods page and play, your edited vehicle skin should now be in game. You can download an example here: RingoCarSkinEdit.zip
  10. Hey guys, with the ability to add cars in the new weather beta (thanks a lot, by the way!), I've been working on adding them all as new vehicles. Here's a screenshot of what I've got so far. I've got like ten thrown in there for now, not counting the different similar models (like cop cars or different lengths of pickup bed). I haven't done the masks yet, but got the random colors in, so that's pretty cool. Take it easy, dudes.
  11. Players've learnt how to drive... It's time to make driving even harder! If you want to drive faster/slower or go backwards, you need to switch gear. Some of the vehicles (Like sportscars) have Automatic transmission so you don't need to switch gear (except for go backwards). This should make driving a bit harder and new people won't drive a car as fast as they found a key to the nearest car. Also this will add one more option to choose besides Capacity and Speed. P.s: If there's any mistakes in the text — sry. UPD: Uh, there's one thing that imo will make driving more realistic — Handbrake should be toggleable and make car unable to move while handbrake is used.
  12. So I was playing on multiplayer with my sister- just us, but the server tends to load chunks really slowly when we drive, and when we drive up next to the next one we often have to wait up to 30 seconds for it to load. Not sure if that's normal? We have about 3GB dedicated to the server (the computer has 12GB RAM total, current stable build, Windows 10). Well, after doing this for like, two irl days, we were driving back along a road we'd been on many times. We then saw that, just about every place we had stopped to load a chunk on our last time through that road, there was.. now another of the same truck. Items inside and condition were the same, and the engine was on with the key (also a copy, we had been in the car and running it on the road, afterall). We now have three to four extra trucks and are sort of confused. They still drive and I pulled the keys out and drove them around, though I didn't try taking items out of the glovebox, which is the only place that had items. So, definitely an odd bug. But I guess now we have a convoy..?
  13. Hello guys! I have a problem that I could not solve on my own. We make a custom model of police car for Project Zomboid (Link). After we upload it to the Workshop, and we saw that the textures of light, damages and rust do not worked. In lua file the textures was writed to the model, but it still does not work. Anyone know, how fix that problem?
  14. Enhanced Vehicles (WORK IN PROGRESS) Hello members! Today i want present you a our modification for Project Zomboid. We are decided to change default cars for more detailed and realistical. Our team make a new models and textures based on realistical vehicles of 90's. About progress, we will inform you at this topic. Thanks for you'r attention. Chevrolet Caprice 1992 1. First car in our modification - Police Cruiser and Park Ranger Sedan replaceble at model based on Chevrolet Caprice 1992. We are already complete a model and main textures.
  15. Hello there, I started a new game on Ver. 39.67.5, and just noticed in any car I cant see the icons for seats/trunk or anything on the inventory bar, therefore I'm unable to load items on cars. Im using some mods too, wich according to the creator have been updated to work on this new ver. of the game. Mods Im using in case any of these mods is causing the issue are: *Alice Pack *Bedford Falls *Better fuel mod v.1.0 by snake *Better item category labels *Cremation corpse disposal *custom tooltips mod Ver.2.7 *Easy access *Eerie country *immersive overlays *Legourmet evolution plus ver 0.7 vehicles edition *additional skill books vehicles edition *Milk mod *Molotov classic recipe *More zombie loot *Open cans with knife *Realistic weapon durabilities *Silencer *Simple lines *South muldraugh *West point strip center *Wring out wet towels
  16. Good afternoon. Okay, so I've been playing the game for a few days and, much to my chagrin, I got bitten by a zombie. I deployed CTRL-ALT-DELETE and reloaded from the last auto-save. Fortunately, that was right be for I got nailed by a classic Bathroom Zombie, so I lost no progress. I looted that jackpot of a house and went down to my vehicle. It was gone. Now, I'm stuck too far away to get home AND I lost my preexisting loot in the car. The game saved correctly in the auto-save, and I've loaded the save files, which are all in order. -but my car is gone. The cars near the jackpot house? Oh no, they're there. Only MY car is gone. -and my car key isn't gone, either! What am I to do? Thank you for any assistance. -TURTLESHROOM P.S.: My version is V41.2 .
  17. When my friend use the car and leave it with the key, and me take out the key, the key just disappear
  18. Hi, Sometimes when I drive slowly with a lot of zombies (20-30 zombies) behind/next to my car, my car is like capatulted and it goes from 5mph to 60mph in one second and I think it mostly happens with slow vehicles like vans. So yeah it's fun to have such a boost but when there are trees everywhere you get an instant crash and that's way less fun game's version : 39.67.5 but it does that since the beginning of vehicles I didn't see anyone reporting this bug, I'm playing with sprinter zombies so maybe it has something to do with that It's very easy to make this bug happens, just take a slow van, attract a lot of zombies and drive slowly next to them or even in circles
  19. Hello, I am speaking for both the community and the Dev's, could you please add an Official Test Map for your latest updates ? For example a large parking lot with all vehicles having a place to spawn and such, different types of roads, terrain, etc. Zombies to roam a side of it, and a bunch more. Would love to see that kind of a test map. You could get a lot of information out of it and we could test all kinds of bugs and, fps decrease and other issues that pz needs fixed and as such I think it would be a good idea to be able to test the new features on a such said map. We could have trees to crash in or to chop, a mechanic shop filled with the parts you need to test out anything else and so on. That way it would be easier to test and see where problems arise. Below is a really poor example (really poor) but I think that everyone gets the idea. We can test houses, how the rendering will affect buildings and such and vehicles. We can have a dense area with a bunch of houses, a bunch of two story buildings and then just normal country road. Tight curves, intersections, etc. We could basically do a lot of stuff on it and it would be a fun way for everyone to test out new features before playing or if they are willing to make the game better and report anything unusual. This is just a suggestion but I hope it will come true. A cell or four at max would probably be enough for the car to accelerate, do leaps and anything like that. Please think it through and share your opinions with me and anyone else.
  20. Hey guys, Is it just me or there's no longer cars in the vehicle beta server? I updated and it no longer works. Literally no cars showing up after the update. Anyone know what's going on and how to fix it? Thanks so much!

    Driving Cars Mod

    Official Web Page: http://undeniable.info/pz/DrivingCarsMod.php List of all the Vehicles with their information here: http://undeniable.info/pz/DrivingCarsMod.php#list Please Help Contribute if you can! TO DO LIST: Fix Problems on Multiplayer: GridSqaure:transmitRemoveItemFromSquare(item) seems to occasionally fail or time out when used multiple times per second. This problem is causing cars to duplicate themselves from time to time as you drive along. I have yet to find a solution to this Maybe we can kindly ask the devs if they can provide a method for the IsoWorldInventoryObject class such as setPosition(newX, newY) though I understand this could be more difficult then it sounds as these world inventoy objects are relative to what square they exists on. So if thats too much to ask, I can live with just a setTextureOffset(newX, newY) method so I can just change the offset of the car Until it moves onto a different square. This would reduce my item drop and pickup command spamming by like 80% which should fix the problems experienced in MP. What do you say devs? Make isometric car images for other kinds of cars with all 8 angles We should really make our own art as I just found most of these cars on google images, though I made slight adjustments to them, we really need you artists to whip us up some isometric vehicles from the 8 angles you see. Including one image of the car being broken. Off Topic: Feeling Bored? Try these games The game of Stones The game of Lights
  22. So in this thread I don't want to discuss the inevitability that cars are coming to PZ. We know cars are coming and you can test them right now. This thread isn't for that. This thread is for people to discuss the future use, mechanics and ideas surrounding cars. As the discussion evolves I'll be adding things to this list. Cars and the like have an incredibly high value in this game, especially with customization and fleshing out the fun parts of using vehicles. They should be balanced, but also they shouldn't end up like guns. Remember that cars are meant for transportation, and that if they don't fulfill that purpose because they are too risky to use, then people won't use them. Categories include (subject to change) Types of Vehicles Car Modifications Maintenance of Cars When the Gas Runs Out / Usage of Wrecked Cars Please note that "Mods" in this topic revolve around modifications to the cars, not installed or Workshop mods that change PZ. TYPES OF VEHICLES More than cars and vans, there should be other vehicles that we can choose from as well. Motorcycles Dirtbikes Bicycles ATVs (4x4) Snowmobiles (Winter) Massive trucks (10+ Wheeler) Pickup Trucks Moving Vans RVs / Campers Buses Car type allows for easier sleep depending on the car. Cars provide less sleep quality than RVs Can't sleep in ATVs Sleep in Buses Different performance based on the ground type Cars and motorcycles perform better than other vehicles on pavement "Capacity" vehicles like Moving Vans and Trucks only perform okay on pavement, and terrible offroad. Their strength is massive storage space. Offroad vehicles such as Dirtbikes and ATVs perform well... off road. They are great for country-based bases. They perform well on road too but not as well as cars. Snowmobiles for the winter. They perform extremely well on snow, terrible on everything else. Buses extremely slow CAR MODIFICATIONS Depending on how high your skills are, there should be ways to modify your car. Reinforcing the dash, bumpers etc with steel/iron in order to take more damage Mods influence weight of the vehicle Lowering weight such as removing the back seats of cars and vans increase storage capacity and increase fuel efficiency, but are countered by only allowing one or two people in the vehicle. Increasing the weight by adding grills, reinforcements, loading the vehicle up with supplies, and having multiple people inside should decrease fuel efficiency, making it more costly to bring that tricked out Mad Max vehicle across the map. Cosmetic ways to modify your car with paint would be a nice touch, and could make people recreate their favorite pop-culture cars without Indie Stone getting hit with copyright. MAINTENANCE OF CARS I suggest that the "Metalworking" skill should be changed /renamed to "Mechanic", "Engineer" or something similar. Metalworking is underused at the moment apart from making metal walls and such, or reinforcing windows. Cars in 1993 don't have the vast array of electronics that modern cars do. If someone can do mechanical work on a car, they can figure out how to weld sheet metal. This will make the "Engineering" skill as robust as the carpentry skill, which is well-developed into the "house building" skill that it is. This enhances normal gameplay since we aren't getting a new category, the skill tress will become more complex and will encourage players to decide what they should spend their time on with better rewards. Like the "Farming" skill, those who are well trained can start identifying parts of the car that are damaged or need replacing. Having more information allows for better repairs, and more effective repairs that last longer or replace more condition. Car parts should have condition, and much like Fallout weapons being jammed at a certain condition, car parts should backfire, fail or make more noise depending on the condition of the parts. Modifications are locked behind skills Easier mods such as taking out a seat could be skills for level 1-2 Harder mods such as attaching spiked bumpers (that reduce zombie collision damage) should be regulated to 6-10 Higher skills also allow for better extraction of parts from ruined or spare vehicles. Much like Metalworking and Carpentry allows for more parts to be harvested from objects the higher you skill is. La Cucaracha horn, the most powerful of horns WHEN THE GAS RUNS OUT / USE OF WRECKED CARS Cars should be able to be pushed if they have functioning tires. Pop into neutral and move from driver side. Cars should be able to be stripped for parts Car parts such as tires, engines, brakepads etc can be taken out and installed on other cars of the same category. Cars can be "broken down" and stripped for metal sheets, pipes, and basic electronics (radio). Based on skill. Car batteries can be used for small lights much like the flashlight on a pole, but last much longer. Unlockable levelled skill. Car tires should be able to be taken off. Unless reattached, they cannot be driven of course They become much harder to not only push, but to tip over as well This can provide "walls" in which wrecked cars block zombies Possibly have it so zombies are stopped and have to crawl over the car, or able to stand on top of them Larger cars such as 12 Wheeler Trucks or Ambulances with wheels removed cannot be climbed over or moved due to the weight unless there is a massive horde behind it. This makes Bicycles more useful for after the gas runs out. Junkyards have to be added to the map. Allows for spawning of "car circles" where you can find survivor camps in the fields with broken cars surrounding them. This encourages exploration outside of cities. Possible biofuel with high farming.

    Driving Cars Mod!

    I could use someones help with some questions. I want to figure out how to hide the player while driving so its like hes IN the car. And lastly make it so the car crushes zombies it runs into. To kill the zomies i hit I just need help with a way to kill a zombie with his MovingObject class. i can already detect all the moving objects i collide with just dont know how to KILL the moving object i hit if its a zombie. someone help plz
  24. With generators being in game for a while now and cars coming later it surprises me that you cannot put gasoline in spray cans, water bottles and buckets. This seems like something that is pretty common sense. Please let us put gas in anything that can also hold water. And water in gas cans too if that's not in.
