I know I've suggested this before but I don't think anyone understood my idea. Also I've expanded on it. Since the main point of single player on Zomboid is PvE, I was hoping you'd eventually add some more immersion by adding different types of weather and weather effects. For example, right now we have rain as a type of precipitation which adds other challenge of getting wet and adding those status effects, but it seems there's only two types of rain differentiated by sounds. I'd like more kinds of precipitation, such as: Hail: With the possibility of getting injured, losing HP. Snow: (Yes I know we have snow, I'm talking about snow falling from the sky, not the ground cover type.) With the possibility of inflicting frostbite and decreasing visibility. Fog: Decreased visibility outdoors. Also I'd love a way to control the temperature indoors, it makes no sense that while the power is still on I get hot indoors or too cold, can't I change the thermostat? I feel that varied types of weather could add more challenge to the game as well as more incentive to stay indoors on particular days. What do you all think?
Simply put, it would be pretty neat to see more visual weather effects/ambience other than just rain and thunder. I think these would be great and I have complied a list below of the effects. Snow/Blizzard Description: Basically what rain is, except it's white dots of snow falling to the ground. If the weather is more harsh, then a blizzard will occur which will have greater effects on the player. Effects on Player: Same effects already put in when it snows, if a blizzard, the player will feels these effects even more. Visual Effects: White dots of snow, if blizzard, more dense pieces of snow falling. Fog Description: Fog is pretty much what might occur after a thunderstorm/rain, or randomly during the seasons/months. Effects on Player: Reduced sight (Not as bad as night time, but perhaps 15-30% of that) and the chance of slight panic/anxious if your outside for too long. Visual Effects: Transparent grey visual with a slow, creepy animation. Ambience Description: Basically just more ambience to bring the place to life. Perhaps some trees could drop leaves and those said leaves could be seen blowing throughout the city. Some items such as Newspapers, Papers, various garbage, etc. should also blow in the wind. Would be nice to see some of the tall grass have an animation even if it's subtle of some weather occurring. Let's hear some wind blowing if its thunder storming or if it's a bad storm, let's see more visuals of the wind blowing water on the roads (if it isn't too much, if so, its fine.) Effects on Player: A more immersive experience. Visual Effects: Self-explanitory. I believe little touches like this can really give a heartbeat to a beautiful game such as Project Zomboid. Tell me whatcha think!
