Hey i just wanted to say that with the introduction of metal and metal working, would the Devs eventually put in canning your own food? It seems like a simple process... I even found a video about it xD There can be canning machines found, (rarely) through out the urban areas, they require electricity so with the addition of the generators and gas it would make a great addition to the game. You would have to start farming early on and then you can make your own food storage for late game. Also i'd also love to see a way to create a makeshift fishing rod from nothing but what you find in the wilderness. That brings up a new way of making string or rope, from vines or just from zombie's clothes. Anyway i'm sure these ideas have been posted before but i'm just bringing it back up.
Okay so far we have carpentry as the major skill that defines how well we can barriade and build defensive structures, but what else can be done? One idea me and Nagol had was weilding, a heavy armour version of carpentry. It's generally less portable, harder to gather the necessary resources for, and has some safety hazards (especially if one is not wearing the right gear or skilled in the craft), however it's constructs are non-flammable, can conduct electricty for added defence, can brace exsisting structures, and is generally more permenant and sturdy than it's "lighter" alternative. It could be used in construction (building sturdy metalic structures), crafting (making metal-based upgrades and objects), scavenging (breaking down metallic objects), and even infiltration (getting through mettalic objects like steel doors, locks, gun-safes, ect.). The required objects, pro's, cons, and mechanics are up for debate - be free to add your thoughts, especially if you know anything about the craft. The opposite: a quick fix would be more elaborate forms of furniture moving, perhaps even some novice booby traps, like turning a chair over the front thus tripping up some of the zombies, or moving a dresser on the edge of the stairs then pushing it down once the zombies flood the stairwell. Any other thoughts about alternate methods and skills for fortification? And what do you thing about adding welding in general? Any ideas?
