  1. Long-Term Crafting Projects (CrafTecs) This mod is a complete overhaul of the building worldobjects mechanics (like walls, doors and such). Current state The mod is fully functional as of IWBUMS 34.something. Mechanics The mod requires you to start CrafTecs (working name) on squares, then add parts like planks and nails. After that, you can start working on the object. If you only have half of the necessary parts, you can start building the object up to 50% completion (or whatever fraction of parts you have). Objects take a LOT longer than they did before. Walls take half an hour, stairs four hours, crates one hour and so on. It always felt weird putting up walls and stairs in minutes. To counterbalance that long time, you can stop the project at any time and resume working on it later. You can even share the work between different people! Everyone will get 0.1 point of experience per unit of progress he helped on the project. That means if you build it for 60 minutes, you will get 6 points of experience sliced into 60 times 0.1 points. Normal multipliers still apply. The code also allows for objects to require certain level in different skills and even allows for certain profession. This way you could, for example, require a nurse with experience in Blunt-Maintenance to build a certain object. You can also require MULTIPLE professions / skilllevels for a single object. You can also require different tools to build things. Hammers, saws, blowtorches, a waterscale, a pen, a piece of paper, anything!

  2. I love this game but I honestly have problems with the graphics. I'm not a graphics obsessed person when it comes to video games but this game gives me a worse headache than minecraft even though PZ is very fun to play, but I always get a headache eventually. I'm playing on the best possible settings the game allows and it still looks blurry and makes me eyes and head hurt from the effort it takes to concentrate on the game. This is also probably already known but my character clips through their own clothing (you can see their underwear and body clip out from their pants and shirt) I feel like the game looks like a mid-2000's java flash game, and don't get me wrong, many of those games were really fun but I strongly feel that the game could use a boost into 2019 since the new year is coming very very soon (we're in december!) (SOON) and I really want the game to just look a bit better. The parts of the game that suffer the most when it comes to graphics are the character models like the player and zombies, and maybe the cars just a little. Basically, anything that moves doesn't look as good as it could or should to be honest with myself and everyone. The buildings and fridge and all that stuff that doesn't move looks fairly good. (also the water like lakes and rivers looks like the freedink smallwood games and it just looks like someone made a blueberry smoothie with soymilk and dumped it on the ground) I really hope for improved graphics because the gameplay is so good that it actually deserves better looks to go with that good gameplay. I hope very sincerely that this very constructive and honest feedback helps indiestone devs and PZ grow and improve in beautiful ways.
  3. Sleeping Overhaul Did you ever want to hole up in the Pile 'o Crepes or Spiffo's Burger Joint but couldn't because there was no place to sleep? Then this mod is exactly what you are looking for. It allows you to sleep virtually anywhere (in beds, on sofas, in tents, in armchairs, on chairs, on benches, on the floor, and more...) and every object has its own comfortability levels which affect the recuperation process. You too can sleep in the lovely smell of crêpe. But this mod does more than adding more sleeping possibilites to the game. It changes the whole sleeping system. The player won't sleep for a fixed amount of time anymore but instead only until he is fully recuperated ... or awakened by a nightmare. You now can also sleep whenever you want - No more "you aren't tired enough to sleep" modals. Take a nap and be happy! Church is closed... but open for napping. There is also a chance to pass out when too tired now, so try to sleep regularly. If it happens, your character will drop to the floor and stay unconscious for a few hours. Of course this has a few repercussions so try to avoid it ... not to speak of the zombies who might munch on your brain while you are dreaming of better days. Who wouldn't sleep in a fast food joint!? The recuperation system is more realistic than with the vanilla sleeping mechanics. With this mod a healthy character who's very exhausted sleeps about 6 hours to be fully rested. But there are other factors that influence the recuperation time. For example being stressed will make the player sleep longer to regain fatigue, because who could sleep deeply during a zombie apocalypse anyway? At the moment the most important factor for the sleeping time is the comfort level of the furniture (from best to worst):Level 0: BedsLevel 1: CouchesLevel 2: Armchairs, Tents*Level 3: Chairs**, Benches, Treatment TablesLevel 4: BathtubLevel 5: Toilet, StoolsLevel 6: Floor* Park Rangers have the "Camping Enthusiast"-Trait which makes tents as comfortable as beds for them. ** Security Guards have the "Chair Man"-Trait which makes chairs as comfortable as sofas for them. Sleeping in a bed will of course offer the best recuperation, but I tried to keep the values balanced so even sleeping on the floor (without any other effects) won't be too bad. Of course I know that there are some people out there who'd prefer sleeping on the floor. For those people the values are easily changeable in the Sleeping_Config.lua file. Some of the new modal dialogues. As of version 1.1.0 there are two new traits for the Park Ranger and the Security Guard which affect the sleeping behaviour for those characters. The custom icons were made by the one and only Thuztor! Finally sleeping is affected by a multitude of factors (stats, comfortability, etc...) and there is even more stuff to come in the future! For a complete list of the current features check out the changelog below. As always crits && comments are appreciated. If you find any bugs or places where the sleeping overhaul doesn't work please report them here! Also the stats and different values aren't carved into stone. If there are issues with the balancing I'm totally open to change it. Download for Updated Sleeping Overhaul (Build 27) updated by Pravus The mod in action: (ENG) Awesome showcase by Rancorist: (GER) Great let's play by totu: Known Bugs: - Player starts sleeping before walking to the object (Fixed in v1.1.0) - Fatigue is reset right after sleeping (Fixed in v1.1.0) - Nightmares happening even when negative stats are zerored (Fixed in v.1.1.2) Special Thanks: EreWeGo: for all the testing and feedback!

  4. Hello everyone, I haven't visited the Forums properly for quite some time. But, I have recently updated the game and found the addition of "Safehouse" and "Faction" creation to be really interesting. Sadly though there is one thing I dislike about said "Safehouse" creation, it doesn't work on non-residential buildings. It also doesn't work when you have zombies set to "0", in an attempt to setup a Faction stronghold for possible Roleplay. Anyway, I thought to myself that there wouldn't be a better place than the Forums to ask for such a Modification. Any help is appreciated, thank you for your time.

    NEXT DAY RP ModPack

    This is a global compilation of several mods like Ortmans Gun Mod, Hydrocraft, OZ More Medicine and several other available on workshop mods plus our own home made mods. The compilation is overhauled, rebalanced and translated to play on Russian speaking biggest role play server The Next Day: Zomboid. So what does the mod adds besides the the compilation? - Using handcuffs - blocks te ability of using hands; - Tie hands with a rope - same as handcuffs; - Amputate hands/legs - can cure if you are still NOT infected but bitten by zombie (to amputee anything u need a a scratch first so the menu come up); - You can amutee one or both hands and one or both legs. Every amputation brings its own penalties you will not able to build and use everything that needs two hands without one, you will not be able to run and get tired very fast even by walkin with one leg; - Adds addiction traits to drugs and alcohol; - Addictions can kill you; - Adds several new ways to get sick by cold or by other stuff; - Adds a description option so you can attach a contextual description to your character; - You can read contextual description of character by using RMB on teh avatar or by clicking LMB under the feet of character; - Adds traumas - if characters HP drops under 50% it gives the avatar light trauma perk, if the damage is under 80% it gives a heavy trauma perk. Both perks limit the ability to run, fight melee and build. Are cured with time and care; - Light and Heavy traumas can be dadly if the chcracter is not left in peace for some time in bed/chair and without medical atention. Running/fighting/building can kill you; - Hides "online" button for players, means only admins can see who is online via the game client (we really want to make the word dangerus and unpredictable, knowing that soem badass in online makes you more careful); - Hides the name above the head of the character so the only way to identify a player is the contextual description mentionet before; - Adds a "telportator" an internal script that allows gamemasters to crate items that will teleport characters between locations. Example: you are using a sewer hatch (that is an object bound to ground) once you do it "teleports" your character to another map - example: the sewers. Normally we map a separate area that got no other access then by teleport and use them as doorways. (to use this you will have manually change an ingame file and write down the coordinates you want an item to teleport); - Every new crated character will recieve a debuff trait, that can be switched off only by game master, this is made as an internal server mehcnism to force players to write character lists on our forum. Most part of mentioned features are coded by; AiweLelia, Sinoptik, ComaWhite, myself IMPORTANT For DEV's: We share this mod mostly for developers since we hope, that some of the added fatures might be usefull in upcoming updates. For PLAYERS: The mod will radically change your gameplay experince so don't try this mod unless you know what you are doing. This mod is designed only for Next Day Roleplay - the first russian roleplay server and community.; For Modders: if you are interested in getting any certain feature - PM me. DOWNLOAD

    Injury Overhaul

    Injury/Medical System Issues and Proposed Solutions Issue: Amateur medical care being on par with professional medical care. Solutions: Prescription Medication and Over-the-Counter Medication. Medication can have side effects, with prescription medication side effects much more severe than OTC medication, and mixing medication can be dangerous. Only Doctors know what side effects pertain to what medicine, and which meds shouldn't be mixed, as well as what happens when you do mix meds and how to treat dangerous mixtures. Issue: Not enough non-fatal wounds, leading to large, useless medical supply. Solutions: Menial tasks can injure survivors based on their lack of skill in certain tasks (cooking, building, ect.) Amateur treatment may cause more issues than solve, leading to infection, sickness, and possibly death. This would all help the issues Doctors have leveling First Aid, as people would really want to be healed by a professional, instead of doing it themselves and possibly dying.

    Overhaul for sheet ropes

    I think the sheet ropes should be overhaul with the purpose to difficult of using, because it's the easiest way to have a completely secure base. For example, it would be logical that we can not use them in any way when we have damaged hands. Also we are unable to use them, when we have overweight or underweight traits. The same for when we are heavily loaded. It also would be nice if zombies could break them when hitting from below.

    The Aiming Overhaul

    I'll try to keep this relatively 'simple'. Aiming and Firing The aiming system we have in-game right now isn't all that great; You look in the general direction and hit a target without really aiming at all. I haven't played multiplayer yet but I don't really think that the current aiming system will work very well with it at all. I think hand-to-hand weapons are okay, but guns aren't. First of all, with the 3D system, when aiming, arms should be slightly detached from look direction, so it's a sort of keyhole aiming style. So if I'm facing forward, I can move my character's arms still to aim within that 45 degree forward direction. Bullets would be fired towards the mouse cursor, however would take height into account too. Say you're got a zombie next to a wall, he's standing still, so it's purely a target to shoot at. If you howver the cursor over the grass in front of the zombie, the gun will be 'aiming' at the ground, so the bullet will hit the dirt. If you hover the cursor over the zombie's legs, it's aiming at that height, and will hit the legs. If you hover the cursor a little above his head on the wall behind him, the bullet will hit above him. This would work by having an invisible 'aim target' attached to the cursor, which would move across the space in 3D, up and down walls, along the ground, etc, kind of like a laser pointer from the gun to the mouse. The gun would then trace a ray from the gun's 3D position (even from rooftops or balconies) towards that point in space, and if it intersects with something along the way then that is what it will hit. For example, you're on a three-story building rooftop, in front of you is two-story building with one zombie on the roof. You aim your mouse cursor at the road behind that building, so although you've aimed at the road, if the 3D ray passes through the zombie, it would hit him. This ray would be invisible, and the aiming would not be 100% accurate (skills would play a larger role here), but I think this would work really well for making sure PVP gunfights aren't a "I can click faster than you" affair. Gunshot Wounds So to combat the DayZ style bloodlust that some players may have, gunshot wounds should be dangerous, but not instakill dangerous. Basically, the player body model is already in-game, you've got your body parts which can be damaged, etc. So depending on where the raycast hit point is on player's avater, that part of the body would be damaged with a gunshot wound. A gunshot wound would cause bleeding and agony, and the 'Needs medical attention' moodle would linger until the bullet is removed. You could get lucky and the bullet may pass through you entirely, but if not, then you could risk trying to pull it out yourself (and likely infect your wound), or try to find a doctor. Depending on where the bullet hits, you would have effects to your character: Head = Instant kill Neck = Death in under 5 seconds, slow movement, heavy bleeding Chest = Death in under 10 seconds, slow movement, crawling, heavy bleeding Stomach = Slow movement, crawling, heavy bleeding, possible passing out (Likely needs someone to drag you to safety and carry you back to camp) Legs = Limping or crawling, bleeding Arms = Decreased melee damage, decreased pushback force, bleeding And also, all gunshot wounds should be treated properly, and I believe the devs plan to overhaul the medical system which would definitely play into this to ensure the wound doesn't become infected. Having these effects for getting shot would make it more of a risk to try and shoot someone. These factors would come into play: -You may miss. Result = DEAD -You may hit them and they may shoot you back. Result = INJURED -You may kill them and their buddy shoots you. Result = INJURED OR DEAD -You may kill them and steal their supplies. Result = ALIVE So you'd need to be a good shot, you'd need to be quick enough to pull your gun, aim accurately (+ have good aiming skill), and shoot them before they can react and run/start shooting, and even if you down them, they could still shoot you before they bleed out. Taking Cover This one isn't so big, but I believe sneaking will make players crouch low in future versions, so having more low objects like cars and what-not would allow for some really intenses gunfights. Well, those were my ideas as simple as I could get them, still pretty long, but let me know what you think. This would be a lot of work for the devs but I personally think that in order to have PvP being fun and giving players a chance to defend against griefers and bandits, this is the way it should be done. Thanks for taking the time to read through. -Ben

    Lighting Overhaul

    One of my biggest complaints is the lighting. Many buildings will have random rooms that have crazy amounts of light in them. Just last night, i was playing on V31.11 and I went into a bathroom (window less) and the lighting was perfect. I turned on the light and it completely flushed everything out. There have been times when i was walking down the road at night and I look over at a building and see perfectly into the room through the window like the light is on. This was months into a game. Or some times it's just part of a room. a piece of the wall that lit while everything else is dark. Have any of you noticed this? All my friends that play have the same complaint.
  10. [idea/Suggestion] While I was playing Build 30 or 31, (Don't kill me if Build 31 isn't out yet, haven't paid attention and its 10:52 PM here ), I noticed that the UI isn't top notch nor very stable. I understand that we are on either build 30 or 31, but the UI needs to get a refresh like... right now. I've read the future of the game and how they'll update the UI drastically for the following next builds, however; I decided to create a UI that simplies both keyboard and controllers in hand and hopefully helps the Developers in mind. Keep in mind that this is not fully art designed and its only to improve functionality. --The Start Of The UI-- The first section of game will start and prompt the user on how to start the main menu or to begin interacting with the game once its done loading, simple stuff here. If the person hits ENTER, the game will run on Mouse Mode. Should be very self explanatory, if you hover over the text, it turns red that tells the player he or she has selected the option. If the person hits "A", the game will run on Controller Mode. This one is a little hard to explain, when the player uses the moving buttons, (Left Stick, Right Stick, D-Pad, etc..) then the red will highlight red after moving. For example, the game will always highlight survival when using controller on boot. If I use the D-PAD to move towards the left, it will highlight the other option I have and highlight it red. It will of course dehighlight the previous option that was selected. It shouldn't be rocket science, but its a nice start. --Game Selection-- Once the player hits "A" or enter, the screen will change towards this following "diagram". The Menu will be greeted and the person can just move their mouse/left stick towards any of the three choices. Survival Classic/Sandbox/And Challenges or AKA Custom Maps. Mouse users should know that they are not affected, and controller uses are benefited from the change since its simple to left click and press A at the same time. Hitting ESCAPE or B makes it go back towards the main menu. --Online & Settings-- I'm still working in this section, either on wed or friday I'll show the other missing segments so both can enjoy the simplistic interface. --Character Creation and World Settings-- This one should be easy to create, same like the previous one, I'll eventually explain how these will work. That's all for now! Keep up to date towards the thread every week, hope to solve many issues. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to drop a reply! I'm aware that there are other UI's, but I think this one should be much simpler for newbies. Happy Zombie Hunting! -Videogameget 12/7/2014 11:12 PM PDT

    Campfire overhaul

    We all know that its pretty easy to make a campfire lit in this game. And i tought it was a little bit too easy and a little bit too unrealistic. So this overhaul would make it a bit harder and a bit more realistic. And thats all what this game is about, right? So lets gets started. Wet wood: You just chopped a tree down and you got plenty of wood. But its imaginable that the wood is probably very wet because it stood outside all the time. starting a fire with wet wood is incredibly hard. So its the best solution to store it somewhere inside for a few days until it becomes a little less wet. The more dry the wood, the easier it will get to make a fire. Now, wood you find in a container is another story... Dry grass: You need something to start a fire with once you get a lighter/matches. In the overhaul you have the abilty to pick some grass on a grass tile and store it in your pockets or inside. After a few days it will become more dry, and eventually it will become a great way to start a fire with. Ofcourse, one plumb of dry grass wont make a fire start for the average joe, so you will need lots of paper and dry grass to start a good fire. Fire stages: When you start a fire, it will change, and have different stages. I will show my ideas: Fire tent: This is the first stage when you start a great fire, lots of flames and warmth will come, but you have a great chance to burn your food when cooking. Black wood: The fire has been goign for a little bit. The paper and dry grass have already burned away and the wood has become black and ashy. The fire is still in great condition but the flames are less high. You have less chance to burn your food and this is probably the best opportunity if you dont have time. Collapsed black wood tent: Your fire tent had collapsed, and your flames are less high. This is also a great moment to cook food but it takes longer. Ashes: Your campfire is now smoldering red ash. It still gives some warmth and it gives a bit less smoke. Sleeping with the ashes stage in a cold winter is safe and a good way to keep warm. Fire making skill: The more you make fire, the better you will get. eventually at level 2 you can try to make a fire with a notched wooden plank and such. It wont always work, But its a good way to grind your fire skill without wasting wood. at level 4 You will get much better at making fire without matches/lighters. At level 5 you have no reason anymore to use matches or lighters for a fire, as you will be a firemaking god. This skill will be under the survival category just like trapping and fishing. There will also be fire making books around for you to find. So what do you guys think? Id like to hear your opinions about it.
