  1. This mod aims to allow the player to move using the left mouse button. By enabling this mod you will move to a location in the same manner as the right click contextual option but by simply left clicking on the desired location. This does not remove WASD controls. To Do: 1) Bugs, bugs, bugs. 2) Add an options menu to toggle it on and off. 3) Make the meatbag "Run To" while while "Shift" is being held. 4) Make combat work more naturally with this system. 5) Make sneaking work with this system. 6) Bugs, bugs, bugs. Latest Update: <>The meatbag no longer ignores containers or cancels movement when a container is clicked on. Instead the meatbag will try and navigate to a spot beside the container. <>Other minor bugfixes. <>Code refactoring. Known Issues: (This list will change) #1) A benign error occurs on starting/Loading a game after you click to start the game. #2) Related to #1. The meatbag will try and navigate to "a" location appon clicking to start after starting/Loading a game. If you have any questions, comments, feedback, or suggestions please let me know. If you do try it and decide to uninstall it Please let me know why. This information helps me make the mod better. Enjoy. v0.3 coming soon. Note: this mod currently uses it's own scripts and does not overwrite existing game files. This means it should survive updates for the foreseeable future and shouldn't have any clash of compatibility with other mods unless they overwrite certain files themselves. (No problems so far) I would warn players to try this on a meatbag you don't hold any love for as the move to system in PZ can be somewhat awkward at times if you aren't used to it. This might get you killed if you are used to WASD. You can currently find the mod through the steam workshop in the link below. steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=600699360 Non steam DL Below Click To Move v0.2.zip
  2. Ok first of all I would like to warn everyone that this will be a VERY long post so if you intend to read all of it, hope you are comfy and have all you need. Second of all I would like to say I didn’t steal anyone’s ideas, I have had most of these for months but have not bothered to post them until I had them in an ok format. Third of all and the last thing before I start please remember nothing is confirmed and some of these ideas may reference my other posts and or upcoming posts so some things not implemented in the game may be talked about for possibilities of the future. Thank you and enjoy the Post. 1.) Now before we begin I would like to make a list of tools that may be used in the maintenance and upgrades of some vehicles. · Wrench- can be used as a weapon and for certain repairs. · Blow torch- used to weld metal together to fix the car body. · Engine lift- used to lift the engine. · Creeper- makes fixing under a car easier and slightly more efficient. · Oil pan- used to collect oil from the ground instead of leaving an oil mark. · Cutting pliers- used to cut certain things off and pull items out. · Pliers- used to pull small parts out. · Air brush- making paint and decals last longer. 2.) Now for a list of stats that may seem a bit confusing: · Weapon usage- what weapons you can use and from what seat. · Storage capacity- how much something can hold or carry · Tow strength- how much something can tow. · Damage resistance- how much it can take from impacts like crashes or blunt damage. · Mirror view- how much you can see around you using mirrors. · Noise- how much noise it makes when moving. 3.) Now with that out of the way we can get the cars and vehicles. This area will cover player powered vehicles. Bike- this is a standard vehicle and will be the start of the list. It has 2 wheels, comes with 3 variations, can have a multitude of add-ons and much more. · Fatigue rate: medium-slow · Speed: poor · Storage capacity: poor · Turn radius: ok-good · Weapon usage: single hand weapons only · Noise: very little-silent · Seats: 1 · Variations: Road, mountain, cruiser Notes: The variations are Road, Mountain and Cruiser. Mountain bikes are good off road as well as on road. They are very durable and pretty fast but cause fatigue slightly faster. The road bikes are best at going fast on the roads while poor off-road. The cruiser is the standard bike with ok on road and poor off road speed but while on roads it has less fatigue rate. Both the cruiser and street bike have higher fatigue speed off roads while the mountain bike has the same rate for both roads and off roads while being lower than the bikes standard on road speed. Big wheel/Tricycle- This is a 3 wheel bike that is more of a joke but will serve as a basic type of transportation if needed. · Fatigue rate: medium-low · Speed: poor · Storage capacity: None · Turn radius: Very poor · Weapon usage: one handed weapons only · Noise: quiet, loud · Seats: 1,2 · Variations: Tricycle, big wheel Notes: The tricycle is a smaller bike with the ability to carry a person on the back. They are very slow due to big legs and small pedals. The tricycle is a poor weapon but can coast. The Big wheel has the same problem being slow but only carries 1 person and is much louder. It is however it is better off roads slightly and is a bit faster. It also has plastic tires that can’t pop. Scooter- These are another player powered vehicle. · Fatigue rate: medium · Speed: ok-poor · Storage capacity: very poor · Turn radius: ok · Weapon usage: None · Noise: ok-slightly noisy · Seats: 1 · Variations: None Notes: This vehicle can be folded and stored for transportation reasons. It also has Plastic tires that preventing popping. Skateboard- This is a board with wheels, not much else to say. · Fatigue rate: medium-slow · Speed: ok-poor · Storage capacity: none · Turn radius: Very good · Weapon usage: any weapon besides guns · Noise: medium-Loud · Seats: 1 · Variations: Long board, Penny board, shortboard. · Notes: First of all each of these can be used as a weapons and have non popping wheels. The long board has the farthest attack range but the worst durability. It also is easier to ride but is heavier and has a bigger turning radius. The shortboard is the perfect middle child. Good range, weight, ok to learn, can do tricks, can turn fast, and only has the downfall of poor durability. Now the penny board, while being the smallest is the most durable but it harder to learn and can’t do tricks as easily. It’s also very light and has short range. Roller-skates- These are like shoes but make you move. · Fatigue rate: medium-slow · Speed: ok-poor · Storage capacity: None · Turn radius: ok · Weapon usage: all but guns. · Noise: medium-loud · Seats: 1 · Variations: None · Notes: these are shoes that take a while to stop, longer to turn, such off-road, and can coast down streets. Kiddie cars- those small pedal cars for kids. · Fatigue rate: medium · Speed: slow-medium · Storage capacity: None · Turn radius: poor · Weapon usage: one handed weapons · Noise: medium · Seats: 1 · Notes: they do look different but these are where the differences end. 3.) Now we are on to small cars and vehicles. This is only a start. ATV- this is your standard Quad for off-roading adventures. · Fuel tank size: ok-small · Fuel efficiency: poor-ok · Noise: very noisy-Loud · Speed: Ok-fast · Storage capacity: poor · Seats: 2 · Turning radius: ok-poor · Weapon use: person Driver can’t, passenger gets full 360 degrees to attack. · Notes: This vehicle has the same speed on and off road but is more efficient off road. Dirt Bike- This is the mountain bike but motorized. · Fuel tank size: small · Fuel efficiency: ok · Noise: Very Loud · Speed: Fast · Storage capacity: Poor · Seats: 2 · Turning radius: ok-good · Weapon use: Same as ATV · Notes: Its faster than the ATV but it is also louder and holds less fuel. Golf Cart- Clubbing Zombies in style since 1984. · Fuel efficiency: ok · Fuel tank size: Ok · Battery Efficiency: Ok-poor · Noise: low-quiet, low · Speed: slow, slow-ok · Storage capacity: Ok, good · Seats: 3,5 · Turning radius: Ok-poor · Weapon use: passengers can use weapons. · Variations: electric powered, Fuel powered · Notes: The cart can be your standard white frame and be electrical or have a more rugged frame and better off road capability that uses fuel. The electrical has less storage, can’t go off road, and can hold less people but can charge easily and quickly. The fuel powered can hold 5 people and more storage. It also is better off road than its electrical counterpart. Its only downside is it takes more to fix it, you need fuel to run it, and it is louder. Motorcycle- Vroom vroom! · Fuel efficiency: good · Fuel tank size: ok-good · Noise: loud-extremely loud · Speed: fast- very fast · Seats: 2 · Turning radius: good · Weapon use: one handed weapons or passenger · Notes: Passenger has full 360 attack radius. It is best for quick escapes but attracts many zombies. Motorized scooters- So very hipster · Fuel efficiency: ok-good · Fuel tank size: ok-small · Noise: ok-loud · Speed: ok-fast · Seats: 1 · Turning radius: ok · Weapon use: One handed weapons only. · Notes: This is like the dirt bike but slower, quieter, and made for on road. Ride Mower- Got to keep your lawn clean in the zombie apocalypse. · Fuel efficiency: poor-ok · Fuel tank size: ok-large · Noise: ok, loud · Speed: slow · Seats: 1 · Turning radius: ok-poor · Weapon use: any weapon. · Notes: This will actively kill crawlers and cut grass at the same time. The blades are able to be toggled but it makes noise when on. Otherwise it’s pretty quiet. 4.)

The Police version (like S.W.A.T.) would have the hatches instead of the window, an extra 2 seats, the ability to hang from the edges of the vehicle, and a siren. 5.) Now to finish up with this part of the list. It’s time for large trucks and big vehicles. Truck · Fuel efficiency: ok · Fuel tank size: ok-large · Damage resistance: ok-high · Bullet resistance: poor · Noise: ok- loud · Speed: ok · Storage capacity: Great · Seats: 5, 6 · Tow strength: good · Turning radius: ok · Mirror view: ok · Variations: 5 seater, 6 seater · Notes: The only differences between the 2 are the 6 seater loses the spot between the driver and passenger seat but has a chair instead.

Now for a list of trailers as well as items that can be pushed or pulled by players. · Shopping cart- This is a play pushed utility that can be used to hold and store items or push 2 people. It does require both hands to control. · Push Mower- This is a player pushed utility that consumes fuel to work. When pushed over tall grass it will trim it. It does make noise however. · Horse trailer- This is a medium weight trailer that can be pulled by most vehicles with tow capabilities. It has a good amount of space for storage or it can also be built in. · Tank trailer- this can be small or large. The only difference is that the large requires a 6 wheeler and a small can be towed by anything as well as holds less. · Box trailer- this is another 6 wheeler trailer that also has a small variant much like the horse trailer. · Tow dolly- This can be towed by pretty much any car. It can be used to tow another car. · Equipment trailer- this is used to pull small cars, work vehicles, and other small utilities. · Sled- This player pulled utility is best used when there is snow. It can be filled with items or a person. It can also be pulled on non-snow surfaces but makes noise and requires much more strength. Either way it takes both hands. · Wagon- This is much like the sled but is better over solid surfaces like roads and pavement rather than dirt and snow. It does make less noise however and can hold more items then a sled. · Refrigerated trailer- This is like the box trailer for the 6 wheeler but has a fuel powered ac installed to keep it cool inside. · Log trailer- this is a large 6 wheeler exclusive that holds large logs. This is found in the log mill and is pretty much useless considering there is no use for the huge logs as of now. · Car transporter- another 6 wheeler exclusive that can hold a total of 8 cars; 4 top and 4 bottom. This does however require precision and time when unloading. · Dump trailer- this is a smaller trailer that can be dumped back using a small battery. · Camper – this can be pulled by most vehicles. It is a smaller version of the RV having a working stove, sink, microwave, a bed, and room to hold 3 people inside. · Utility trailer- this is a mix of the equipment trailer and the wagon. It is able to hold more things than the equipment trailer could such as generators and crates, but is still not able to hold items just lying there. 7.) Now for a list of additions that can be added to cars or added to customize your car: · Winch- This can be attacked to most trucks and a few cars. It can be attached to assist pulling a stuck car, knocking over trees, and pulling out stuck objects like unmovable poles, light posts and signs. · Seat belt cover- This just simply can be added to any car besides busses, and give an extra decrease of panic. · Fuels saving tires- tires built for the road. They save fuel while on road but are horrid off-road. · Off road tires- These will help remover the speed reduction on your cars while off road but it provides no buff on roads. · Large tires- these are just tires for things like tractors, some 6x6 and large trucks. They do increase fuel efficiency and speed by slightly. · Small tires- these are for things like wagons, ATV’s, and things along that line. · Basic tires- the standard car tire. · Hitch lock- these need to be attached to tucks in order for them to tow, excluding the 6x6, bulldozer, and tractor. · Bike rack- This can be attached to the front or back of most vehicles. It will provide some extra protection to the front but can also hold 2 bikes. · Roll cage- a small addition to some vehicles improving damage resistance to the top. · Shell- this adds extra room to trucks as well as protection from elements. · Basket- a bike and scooter attachment that adds some storage space. · Bell- Noise maker for bikes and scooters. · Horn- Noise maker for bikes and scooters. · Skateboard wheels- replacements. · Scooter wheels- replacements. · Bike tires- Spare tires. · Bike mirrors- add mirrors to the bike to see behind you. · Bike light- let there be light. · Seat covers- provide extra panic decrease. · Ladder rack- a type of add-on to trucks that can allow for more items and a less likely chance of things falling out. · Headache rack- protection for the back window but deceases visibility from rear view mirror. · Light bars- This is a protective front piece that has lights connected to it. · Nerf bars- steps into trucks that improve entering speed as well as a little blunt damage. · Skid plate-extra protection to the underside and front of you vehicle. · Mud flaps- This decreases the amount of dirt and mud that need to be cleaned off the back and is shown in tracks. · Bull bar- This is a light bar but without the lights and can endure much more blunt damage. · Water bottle holder- a small bike attachment that can be used to hold a water bottle or smaller pop bottle of sorts. · Bike bags- These can be put onto bikes to add 2 small storage units on it. · Muffler- this can be attached to just about any vehicle and is used to make it slightly quieter. Extremely quiet for motorcycles. · Snow plow- able to be attached to most vehicles and will both clear slow in front of you and push objects out of the way. 8.) Now with that out of the way we are still far from finished. Now we have the list of problems with the car. · Leak- fluids of sorts are leaking leaving trails from your car. This can be fixed by replacing parts or patching it up using tape. It could be fuel, oil, coolant, or antifreeze. · Scratches- small gashes to the car that could lead to more serious damage if blunt damage is taken. · Dent- This is from blunt damage. · Broken window- just as it sounds. · Missing _______- parts are missing. Its normally important. · Smoking- this says smoke is coming out of somewhere. · Loose- parts could fall off or disconnect. · Bent- from more serious blunt damage. · Destroyed- ruined and needs to be replaced. · Rusty- next to no defense but still usable, of sorts. · Burnt- charred edges but similar to rust. 9.) We are not done yet, now let’s get to the jobs and skills. Skills: · Driving skill- This is the skill of how well you can drive your car. It increase brake reaction time, how much you jerk your car, or even details like how well you can prevent disaster like spinouts. It grows from driving and once you get high enough you can drive things like big rigs or RV’s. · Mechanic skill- This is just the skill of fixing cars. Nothing else to it besides the normal benefits. · Maneuverability skill- This skill only really applies to the player powered ones and motorcycles. This improves how well you can move as well as (this is for all cars here) how well you can’t turn or if you can do things like drift. Occupations: Note, things like construction worker can drive construction live vehicles with more ease then a normal person. · Chauffeur- This job costs +4 points and in return gives +3 driving skill. You also get the trait quiet. · Taxi driver- This job costs +4 and gives +2 driving skill and +1 maneuverability. · Street racer- This job costs -6 and in return gives a driving skill of 3 and a maneuverability skill of +3. · Mechanic- This job costs a total of -4 and in return give a total of +3 mechanical skill and +2 electrical skill. · Cyclist- This job costs -+4 and in return gives +1 to light footed, +1 to maneuverability, as well as a buff to fitness. · Bus Driver- This job costs +2 and in return gives +3 to driving and the skill to drive a bus near perfectly. · Truck driver- This job costs+4 and in return gives a +2 to driving, the skill of driving a 6x6 next to perfectly as well as the trait coffee junkie. Traits: · Quiet- This trait makes you less noisy as well as shout quieter. · Technical- This job gives you +1 to both electrical and mechanical for -8 points. · Eagle eye- Now if you have this trait and level 3 mechanical skill you can tell problems just by looking at the car. Even if they may be interior ones. · Crafty- Able to make parts or repairs using less or parts that normally are not able to be used. Ex. Saran wrap for windows, or a wire clothes hanger for the radio antenna. · Coffee Junkie- This trait makes the player less affected by sleep when having coffee as well as a longer effect of it. It also reduces any effect of jitters from caffeine (if added). 10.) Now this will be one of the last things on the list. Now for mechanics and other noted/ideas. · Driving conditions- In rain or snow driving becomes harder. With rain you can’t see as far ahead or behind, as well as going to fast has a chance of causing a spinout. Now with snow the problems double. You may start to slide while driving, may not be able to stop, and even the same problems as rain but with 2x the effect. · Car conditions- Cars can be found in many places and situations. Some may be in good shape but out of fuel. Others may be completely wrecked. Most may just need a few new pats or a little fix. That being said most can just be hopped in and drove but others could cause more damage in the form of a fire. · Car locations- Not all cars spawn in the same areas. The police vehicles spawn near the police station, and rarely on the road. Construction vehicles are only in the construction site, and found in a few other places like the log mill or on a truck in the road. · Special vehicle abilities- Now some vehicles like the smaller cars can do things like drift or make a quick U-turn. Other things like bikes and skateboards can do jumps over hazards like crawlers at a high enough level. · Player made upgrades- These normally cause damage to the vehicle unless done at a high mechanical skill. That being said it is not normally recommended. · Zombies in cars- Some zombies can spawn under or even inside of cars. Typically they need to crawl out then can get up once out of the vehicle. · Terrain troubles- While raining or snowing the ground will become more dangerous. If it is wet from rain you will slide around slightly, and have troubles stopping. This gets even worse with snow. Above all that is ice, which is even worse. Now if the ground is wet and you drive on dirt, this will create a muddy terrain that will slow down your vehicle as well as stop it if you got to slow or the vehicle weighs too much. · Starting cars- Cars can be started by owning a compatible set of car keys or a few other methods. Other methods include hotwiring or making a makeshift key. Hot wiring just requires a knife, scissors, or pliers, as well as a screwdriver. · Hitting Zombies- Running over zombies doesn’t do much damage to your car but with each kill it leaves a .1% chance of breaking your front windshield due to zombies crashing through it and as you kill more covers your windshield in blood making it harder to see. Crawlers have a chance to pass under cars when drive over. Well it was fun writing this but now, it is over. A list of car parts may be added along with a few pictures but for now I think you guys would like to see this. Anyways thank you if you managed to painfully read all of it. Anyways, thank you and I hope to hear from you guys. Anyway sorry for this long and scary looking post, And hope to hear feedback. ..... whoops. didn't realize how long it was until i posted it.... Heh heh....
  3. Hello everyone. This is going to a long post but if the devs pay attention it will make PZ a more enjoyable experience for everyone, so bear with me. I am probably not the only one that is annoyed by how zombies destroy all objects in their path, but this is not about that. This is about something else that annoys me because it isn't realistic. This is about horde movement. Have you noticed how when you clear an area it doesn't take long for zombies to overwhelm it again? How annoying it is to see small clumps of zombies neatly interspersed, almost equidistantly from each other, when just a day before there was nothing there? I think this is because of the algorithm that is currently used to populate areas that have a certain ideal zombie density. It saddens me to see that movement of zombie groups to areas with lower-than-ideal population is so directed and certain (or maybe they are even just spawning in low-pop cells?). That's not how groups of barely-thinking zombies would act. Right now it seems that zombie movement is either a limited random walk or completely directed movement into zones that are low on ideal population. But I have an idea that should make it slightly less frustrating to make an area more clear of zombies, and at the same time make supposedly safer areas become more dangerous. The Lévy flight. The Levy flight more closely resembles how animals and even brainless single-celled organisms like amoebae look for food. They randomly browse an area foraging for food (let's call it roaming) and if they don't find anything they travel in a random direction for a while (let's call it a flight) and then start browsing around again. The ideal behaviour would be something like this: When all zones are populated with the ideal population of zombies, each group (following the leader) would randomly roam around an area inside, for example, a 50 square radius (about the size of a West Point city center block). Each group would do this for a random amount of time (between 5-30 minutes of real time) and then engage in flight mode and go randomly in one of the 8 possible directions. The distance traveled would be a random number between 50 and 100 squares, for example. The group would then start browsing in that 50 square-radius circle again (including banging on random stuff once in a while). But at the same time we want zombies to roam around urban areas more and we want lower-than-ideal areas to be properly repopulated. And there is a very elegant way to make it happen based on the ideal population settings for individual cells by biasing their "flights" in between random movement. All we have to do is to change flight behaviour in groups of adjacent cells (not the whole map). When zombies are randomly choosing one of the 8 directions for a flight, the chance of going in the direction of a low-pop cell would be exactly the same (1/8), *but* when they did choose the right direction, instead of travelling for the base 50-100 squares, they would travel 100-200 squares (this would vary according to ideal cell pop) before roaming again. The lower-than ideal area gets repopulated and the movement still seems natural. Above all, the movements would still be mostly random and the area you cleared could take just one day to be packed again or maybe it would take a week. You would also see more lost zombie groups trampling your crops in your secluded forest farm. Of course, some stragglers would still be required. While it's easy to see that a previously cleared store may be dangerous to enter because of the horde nearby, if a zombie got into that store by itself, you would be caught off-guard. What do you think? TLDR: Zombies should fly.
  4. Sound draws zombies, and since rain causes sound maybe they would be much more active during rain. Moving about almost constantly and being much more alert to stimuli (other than sound of course which would be slightly dulled). I think this would be a really cool addition and increase immersion, difficulty during rain storms, blah blah (insert excuse for putting it in game here).

    Transport

    It seems weird that there is this pretty large map with streets all over the place and yet no vehicles or easy ways to get from Westpoint to Muldraugh or vise-versa. If there were cars, bikes or trucks that could smash down walls if traveling at a certain speed that'd be great too. I believe you could also impliment the ability to take fuel from different vehicles for molotov cocktails or for your personal transport. Using sound for starting the car and car alarms would be impressive. I believe the best way to to use this and so getting cars isnt so easy is that you have to find keys possibly inside a building for a car waiting in a car port. Thankyou for reading if anyone took the time. )
  6. First- I am unsure if this has been discussed or not, as I can not locate the 'search' feature for the forums . Second- Whether it will be re-added or not, I am unsure, but I figured I would post it here anyway. I remember playing PZ when it first came out a while back and that you could select how you moved (IE: button on the bottom of the screen switches between keys moving you diagonally or vert/hor with single-key presses). I would personally like to see this feature brought back as I thought it made navigation a bit better. ~WolfenRayneGames
  7. The title speaks for itself, i'd like to see the option of crouching added in the near future. Maybe it could give us a less chance of zombies hearing or seeing us...
