  1. What I am talking about, is to add shopping carts as a way to carry items. Now of course, this shopping cart as an item that could be used could be broken. IE: could be missing wheels. Repair would either need a low level, or should not be added at all; since it's a shopping cart. These things should be fairly common in supermarkets; for obvious reasons. Dragging a cart can, and should slow down the player, if the cart gets overweighed, then it should be very hard to carry. The cart would not be a rideable thing, only a thing that would be dragged on forward. Why would you want to add this into the game? Well, I personally think that an item like this would be firstly very useful to the game, would as well add some immersion; as some people would rather preffer dragging their items on some form of a sled, rather than a backpack. Not only that, I feel like it's a realistic choice, considering how desperate the times in this game could be. And lastly, thanks for reading my suggestion. Whether it will be accepted or not, I am still very thankful for reading it. Have a nice day.
  2. What the title says. basically the idea is that certain items and face coverings could provide varying degrees of protection against the sickness caused by dead bodies/zeds. An idea I had for balance would be that bandannas would provide a quarter resistance, surgical masks would be half, gas masks would be three quarters while the rare Hazmat suit would provide full protection from the effects of decaying bodies. For added balance you could factor in condition as well, A hazmat Suit at 75% durability would only give the same resistance as a gas mask, for example. I think it would give another reason to use those items, as it would give them added utility as well as a reason to take care of those pieces of equipment. Your thoughts?
  3. I was thinking this would be a neat idea for an unlockable skill or some such. It would not be without consequence (You lose the whole car) but it would be a GREAT "Oh, this situation isnt looking good!" tool/ weapon. Imagine the carnage, Imagine the usefulness, imagine the FUN!!!!!!!!! KABOOOM
  4. Hello, I am a new player that is very much enjoying the game. I posted this on Reddit and another Redditor suggested I post here. I did a search and it does not look like this has been suggested already which I would be surprised if this is true. My suggestion is to include a "persistent" game mode where you can re-spawn with your skills intact upon death. Maybe there is a reduction in skills, could be a random skill(s) or all skills, but you come back and have some progress already. I think this game mode would be most appealing for hosting servers but I think single players like myself would enjoy it too. It might be the "easy" setting for beginners or something. Thanks for reading!
  5. We all want Project Zomboid to be the most realistic Zombie Survival game of all time. here is some suggestion. Campfire system expansion. It is the basic things to do in Survival situation, here is we can find current PZ Campfire system https://pzwiki.net/wiki/Campfire not so much for start a fire for surviving the zombie apocalypse, at first we only need a Match, when all Matches gone? next we can use a stick and notched wooden plank, only that's it but come on, its realistic Zombie Apocalypse, we need more more ways, because it is so much ways to start a fire, especially using household appliances, like; 1. Ash Cotton ball roll: (this will add ash in a Campfire after it burn out) *more realistic stuff here Cotton ball + Ash + 2 Plank Rub together, wait until smoke comes out and wait the ember to grow 2. Dissecting Battery: (this will add more a simple use to battery) Battery + Hammer/something hard to smash it + tweezer Take out the lithium and boom, you got fire the time it takes depends on player surviving skills, idk where to put it but maybe add more skill for surviving, maybe combine it with Foraging skill And so much more, this will add more realistic touch in our beloved game here is some reference that we can find on YouTube. Hopefully this suggestion will help Project Zomboid to be the most realistic Zombie Survival game of all time.
  6. Hi, I propose to add: - The effect of clean clothes on boredom; (Wearing dirty, wet clothes from the dead to increase one-time boredom). - The effect of food temperature; (warm food may slightly increase saturation (by about 3-5%) while lowering cold food (by about 7-10%) this probability can be applied to boredom. Based on this mechanics, you can add perks: neat, dirty. (increasing / decreasing the effect of boredom). A tourist may not have a negative impact on food.
  7. I suggest: - Remove the ability to climb over fences with peaks; - Reduce the likelihood of climbing the fence in the rain; - Increase the load for lifting the rope; - Make it impossible to climb the fence, climb the rope (with any overload). P.S All the things that I indicated in my opinion will benefit the realism of the game.
  8. Dear PZ community and development team, I’ll be brief firstly, greetings from Ukraine; secondly, it is very painful for me to look at the current loot system where the dimensions of objects and containers are not taken into account (modes of this nature are extremely mediocre). My suggestion : Add two weight values for each item (volumetric weight and actual). The container will also have two weight parameters (but the player will see the average value). The container defines a larger parameter for the weight of the item and it is it that is taken into account. "formula volumetric weight is length × width × height cm/ 5000" More details below. Items will be divided into categories: - very small items; (up to 0.1 kg of volume / actual weight) Settling in bacpack: no restrictions. (subject to capacity indicators of volumetric and actual weight)* Settling in pockets: up to 25 pieces. (I think there should be different pockets and, accordingly, different capacities). Settling in a container: no restrictions. * - small items; (up to 0.5 kg volume / actual weight) Settling in bacpack: no restrictions.* Pocket storage: up to 2 pieces. Settling in a container: no restrictions.* Very small and small items will require pockets to carry in inventory. Either carry it in your hands, a backpack, or fasten it to belts. - medium subjects; (up to 5 kg of volume / actual weight). Settling in bacpack: no restrictions.* Settling in pockets: no. Settling in a container: no restrictions.* - heavy objects; (up to 20 kg of volume / actual weight). Settling in bacpack: no more than two. Settling in pockets: no. Settling in a container: in any other container without restrictions.* - special items; (over 20 kg of volume / actual weight) can only be lifted by two hands if the actual weight is less than 40 kg. Settling in bacpack: no. Settling in pockets: no. Settling in a container: in any other container without restrictions.* Character’s inventory is limited by the number of pockets, slots (belt, holster), hands and directly with a maximum weight of 40 kg (volumetric weight does not apply to inventory). Everything regarding containers: - The container takes into account the greater value of one of the weight parameters; - The container cannot hold objects longer than the length of the largest side of the container. Backpacks / bags / bags: - Have all of the above properties; - Category exception: heavy objects (no more than 2), special item (do not fit at all). when hovering over an item and container the player should see: its size, a larger weight indicator, category. This will make the loot system as close to real as possible. finding items is one of the foundations of this game and there is a huge gap in it ... P.S This is just a sketch, but if you are also interested, I will add to the topic. Little things: Pockets: you can sew them. (from 2 sewing levels) You can sew pockets on things from: jeans, synthetics. Items suitable for sewing: pants, jeans, shirts, jackets and the most interesting backpacks. (It makes sense to add one pocket to the backpack. For * quick access as a belt only for objects "small" 2 cells for a screwdriver and scissors;)
  9. TRUCKS Since this is set in America, this should have one of the most iconic things America has, and it is its long nosed Diesel semi trucks. These trucks would have a lot of use for players that wants to live the travelling nomad life, they would be safe in a large truck with a Sleeper behind.(A Sleeper is a the part of the truck where Truckers sleep, eat and entertain themselves). It would also give a lot of utility to communities if the time ever comes to Multiplayer where large groups of players have banded together with NPCs. These trucks could be their lifeline in supplies themselves or blockading a street. The challenge in having a truck in the Apocalypse would be: Repairing it and up keeping it. Trucks have larger tires than normal cars, so after a while, finding replacement wheels would be extremely hard(Trucks usually have 22.5 tires). Refueling a truck could take a lot of effort. For example, a 1980s Peterbilt 359 with a Sleeper and 6X4 Chassis would need at least 300 Gallons per Football Field to be fully refueled. Maintenance would be a nightmare as trucks do not have usual parts that you could use on cars and you would need to find a Truck shop to get the proper parts for it. Space, trucks need a ton of space to be stored, so unless you have a warehouse as a Safehouse, you would have to park it in the open, for everyone to see. Lights, trucks have a TON of lights, from the roof of the cab to the sides of the Cab and Sleeper, some would even have Spotlights, old time trucks in the 1980s would have Spotlights and Long Reverse lights attached to the top of their chrome driver and passenger side windows. These bad boys uses 4 car batteries, good luck with that. Majority of trucks use 12 Speed or 18 Speed Eaton Fullers, so the player has a lot of shifts to do to get it up to speed. Some like logging trucks has High and Low gears for Hills and Mountain roads. There are different types of trucks too, Day Cab, Flat top, Cabovers, Logging, Military and Sleepers. Day Cab: A truck that only consists of the Cab, it is shorter and used for local trucking industries as it could fit in almost anywhere and has a smaller turn circle Flat top: One of the most famous types of trucks in the 1980s and early 90's. These trucks has sleepers that has flat roofs. Cabovers: A very old design of trucks used way back then in the 80s and 90s when road regulations on truck length wasn't harsh one many states. Logging: These are the types that could plow through large hordes with ease, they are city trucks equipped for the harsh muddy roads of the Mountains. Large bullbars and headache racks. Mostly seen in Day cab with the headache rack behind the cab to protect the driver from the Logs his hauling. Military: The military uses many types of Civilian trucks converted for military use like the M915A5. A Freightliner converted for Military transport. Day Cab 1978 Peterbilt 359 Flat Top 1984 Peterbilt 359 Cabover 1994 Freightliner FLA Kenworth T800 Logging truck, the thing you see behind the cab is what truckers call "Headache" rack. United States Military M915A5 with a M1015 Flatbed Trailer (If this is too modern, there is always the M35 Semi used way back in the 70s) The benefits would be great for anyone. A truck could travel a thousand kilometers in a single tank, large hordes would be nothing as you just plow through them with a trailer, and it would be good as an intimidation to players on the road or walking along it. But one should always remember that trucks have air brakes, so you cannot just be constantly be tapping the brakes since it would lock and would take a lot seconds of revving up the engine(It is to pump air into the brakes) to unlock. They would also be noisy, and more noisy with the trailer jumping on and on in tight turns or just from speed. TRAILERS In terms of trailers, the usual 48ft Fontaine Flatbed and 53ft Wabash Dry Vans and 48ft Refrigerated Reefers you see everyday should be scattered on Industrial areas, these are their Pros and Cons: They would have large utility, but are hard to use since if you do not have a Semi truck, they cannot be moved. Replacing their tires would also be hard after a Month into the survival since they also use the same size as the Semi trucks. Hooking up a trailer would also be a hard thing if you do not know which airline to attach and how to hitch the 5th wheel. Though the creativity that could spark if you have a 48ft Flatbed, you could turn it into a house, towed battlewagon, and car/parts/object carrier while the Dry Van would serve the same purpose just excluding the battlewagon but instead as troop carrier or a more enclosed house or moving storage facility. The Dry Van could be used as a temporary or permanent blockade since 53ft is a very long length and could block off Highways and entire entrances to towns. The Reefers(Basically large fridges) could be used to freeze captured players to death or store large amount of foods. But it has a Generator and would need to be attached to a Truck to work properly. These trailers has the ability to "slide" their axles to balance out the weight, but since this is the Apocalypse, they'd be just there as an option if you want to slide the Axles backward. Examples: Wabash 53ft Dry Van trailer Velocity Fontaine 48ft Flatbed. The one on top is a Dropdeck with Spread Axles Here is a link to how Axles slide on Dry Vans: Now for the more complex trailers like Bulk tankers and specialized trailers, these should only appear in specified areas like construction sites and Gas stations. There are multiple types of Bulk Trailers and you'd see. I'll just post a picture since it would be complex to explain it all. The examples I'll use are from a Tanker Company named Polar Tanks. I don't know all the liquids they carry but the examples I could give is: Petroleum: Used to store Diesel and other types of Gasses. Up to 80,000lbs. Dry Bulk: Used for Cement and other types of Construction materials that are in liquid form. Chemicals: Used to haul dangerous chemicals from factories and is often called as the most dangerous type of trailer as if one could leak, an entire town could die. I cannot explain the others as my American Truck Simulator knowledge on tankers ends there, you guys might have to ask actual truckers on what they do. Here are more types of trailers: Wilson 42ft Grain Trailer, these should be found in large farms. There is two types of Dump trailers, one that is called "Side" Dump trailer and "Full" Dump Trailer, here are examples: EAST Full Frame Dump Trailer JET Side Dump Trailer And here is an example of a "Lowboy" trailer: JET Tri Axle Lowboy trailer, these are used to haul Construction equipment or just heavy vehicles in general. Thanks for looking into my suggestions! Keep doing great Devs!
  10. You could use a VCR to record any of the shows you see on the tv like the Life and Living channel or any of the news channels onto a tape to watch at a later date on a tv, you could also find various tapes scattered around the world detailing different skills such as a digital biology lesson found in a school to learn some first aid skill, recordings to help with the maintenance of vehicles, recordings of survival shows that show you what berries are poisonous. You could also find tapes of "Home videos" which bring a boost of happiness and reduce the stress of the viewer, the player could also play some zombie type movies (assuming that the universe has zombie culture) which allow your character to fight more effectively since they know where to aim and attack.
  11. Hi Indie Stone! Great work on pushing out a new update! I'll be playing it for the next while, hopefully have some more bugs to keep you all busy :). I really like how now I can replace my starting schoolbag with say a dufflebag I found, however when I do so I naturally assume the game is smart enough to know this also means I want to transfer all items. Can you please make the game smart enough to know? Thank you for reading.
  12. Allow survivors to sleep on the floor for an uncomfortable but successful nights sleep. 1. Sleeping on the floor with a pillow equipped will dampen the hard floor resulting in a better nights sleep. 2. Having the homeless occupation allows you to sleep outside on the floor with less harsh consequences. 3. Becoming far too tired, or far too drunk will result in you collapsing from exhaustion and sleeping on the ground for an appropriate amount of time. Allow survivors to sleep on the toilet. (If my survivor is able to sleep on a kid's plastic chair, I'm fairly certain a toilet would suffice; plus this would stop us from having to pick up a chair and haul it to the bathroom to sleep in the security of having an extra door between you and the zombies.) Obviously sleeping on the floor (especially outside) would have serious consequences if you were to be ambushed by roaming zombies during the night; but as of now, you can just carry a chair around with you to sleep outside on instead and face the same risks. So sleeping on the floor, especially inside, should be an enabled feature.
  13. I am someone who loves the rain. Ever since I moved to Arizona, I spend 10 months out of the year craving the rain that almost never comes. Arizona is the 3rd driest state in the country, behind Utah and Nevada, and my 11 inches a year comes mostly from monsoon season. Whether rainless overcast, light drizzle, medium soak, heavy rain, or monsoon downpour, I can't get enough of it, in reality or in video games. Heavy rain is better. I'm always cranking up the rain values in games I play if they allow it. Which is why I would like to request some kind of mod to add in intense thunderstorms, and make the rain much more intense than it is now, both visually and audibly. The "very rainy" option simply makes it rain more; what I want are storms with howling winds, crashing thunder, lightning strikes, and water puddles. For those who have not played Don't Starve, it had an expansion called Shipwrecked that adds in a very visually entertaining hurricane storm followed by a monsoon. It looks something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWcgq4ZA8UY I understand that Muldraugh and the area south of Louisville don't get hurricanes and monsoons—hell, I was born 80 miles from where this game takes place, near Evansville. Which is why I wanted to request this mod. Something to spruce up the rainy season, and really give a sense of surviving nature's wrath.
  14. This probably would take a lot of reworking for the firearms but as of right now they're near useless anyway. The current system relies on chance and accuracy with no feedback other than click (miss) click (miss) click (awe yeah you got a hit) Reworking firearms to show more feedback to the aiming factor with a visible cone that narrows as you sit still with accuracy factoring how quickly it narrows and how narrow it's final AoE can affect. Panic could cause it to fluctuate depending on the level of panic while tiredness could cause it to narrow slower and not as well. It would act as more of a gameplay helper with making firearms a useful tool in the game where as of right now pure chance until 5+ skill leaves them as ignored and left behind.
  15. This is my first PZ suggestion in this forum. So this has probably been suggested before or the developers are planning to add cash which would make searching wallets off dead zombies useful? I believe the game could be modified to make cash useful. Perhaps vending machines and gas pumps. Cash could be looted from containers or zombies? Maybe cash could be obtained from atms using an ATM card or disassembling if you have high enough electrical. I found it weird how you could grab everything in a vending machine without even tampering with it or inserting cash. I propose that to get snacks/soda from vending machines you have to pay cash or disassemble it to get all the cash and snacks inside if you have high enough electrical. Maybe implement a pay at the pump system at some gas stations so whenever trying to obtain gas you would have to use that cash[or use a credit card maybe?] I hope people like this suggestion and I hope others can add some ideas to this topic.
  16. First I'd like to state, yes I know this is the wrong forum to post in, however, the website was not letting me post to the proper forum (Suggestions){Box was grayed out and unable to be clicked on}. With that in mind I continue... I've had a couple of times where things just get a little to close together and need some distinguishing... i.e. Disassembling needs to be more specific. > https://i.gyazo.com/291fad73b24cc63a02e8f55cf65a736b.png This photo is just a simple example of what I'm trying to explain. Adding the name of what you are trying to disassemble would make it faster and easier to work in the game.
  17. So, I got to thinking of some things that would be awesome in regards to the chat system that I know that is being worked on. So here is my list of features I know I would really like to see. Name colors able to be assaigned by admin. - Preferably, this would work on a system much like how minecraft does it where it does it by groups. For example, default, admin, custom group 1, custom group 2 Font Colors able to be assigned by admins - much like name colors, only for the text itself. Ideally, it would be best if these colors could be assigned via a command and by a config file in a server Looks good and adds flavor to the game Allows admins to even assign their own name colors unique to everyone as well as chat color to be seen easier in a wall of text Chat types - whisper (pm), whisper very short distance, talk (normal distance), shout (longer distance, global Chat Windows - defined much like how in WoW you can define what you want to see in the chat window with tabs. ie - Tab 1 - whisper, talk and shout only, Tab 2 all chat types Chat type memory - with the addition of chat types by distance, the ability like many MMOs to do /s (say) /shout, /g, etc and have an indicator right before the text box to say what "channel" they are speaking in that remains as such until changed. Customizable chat box background opacity Admin - When an admin types in chat, it says "Admin" before the name Quick and dirty example of my thoughts....
  18. 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.
  19. Hello there, Indie Stone staff and PZ players. My suggestion is: lets boost the PZ development together, by giving TIS more money, so they could hire more programmers, and be more rewarded for their work and thus be more productive and happy while being productive. Explanation: PZ saw the light of day in 2013. It's been 4 years now, since i've bought this game. Since that time a lot have changed, but there's still a lot to be changed, and some of us (i've conducted a poll between me and my friend, and the opinions was 100% positive) think that PZ could use some extra developing speed, because, you know, it's been a year since the new 3d models was promised and all that... So i came to understanding that i would love to give another 15 - 20$ to support great developers team and one of the most unique games on the market. I mean, come on, 15$ for 4 years of playing (and ongoing development), that's just come on. Core: The Indie Stone, consider making a gofundme, kickstarter, or any kind of crowdfunding event, where players who want to do it, could express their gratitude for your work and boost the development of this great game. Disclaimer: please note that english is not my native, be forgiving.
  20. I begin thinking and wondering can we give your charachter the ability to tag the house . For example if you already looted the house you wont forget by tagging it( like grafity on the wall or on the ground. Because I think when NPC is (finnaly) released then we would have a hard to time to understand which houses are looted , stoked or used as a shelter . At least it's my train of thought.
  21. Hello all. First of all, sorry if this thread is being discussed somewhere else. It surely isn't the most original idea, I know; but I think, as the title says, that it would be really awesome if the game had this classic rpg styled inventory, when you could drag items and see their shapes in a lot of sizes (tiny sized items like rings or sugar, I don't know, or bigger items like a shotgun). It would be very fantastic. Please Devs make this thing real. The actual inventory is pretty dull.
  22. Hi, recently started playing again. Trying to sleep I lay pondering. Let me see if I can remember it all. Real time. How come this isn't default? There is the speed up buttons for those moment where it takes a long time. Item transfer delay would make more sense as well. (supported in sandbox) Not being able to carry almost anything without a container of sort. It would also be nice if you could use certain items from your backpack without the item appearing on you. Taking a pill for example. This includes fridges. More positive traits possible. Somewhere around the general guy would be nice. Whenever I make characters based off my friends, it usually ends up with them having too many positive traits to be able to play. Your body turns more food into fat when you sleep. Do you gain more weight if you go to sleep on a full stomach in the game? Temporarily feeling sleepy after decent meals. Decreased stamina after large meals. More strength makes sense. Feeling tired rather than sleepy after digging. Watering is such a bore. Garden hoses would be such a relief. At least when there is still water. Rotating sprinkler. (needs garden hose) Tall and short body perk. Metabolism. Your body will save more calories if you are not getting enough food. Extreme weight loss also turns down your body's metabolism for many years regardless of the amount of food eaten after. To be able to drop worn backpacks to the floor. (right clicking) Being hungry should decrease your ability to learn. Same goes with being tired. It feels like being full goes away too quickly. The ability to use spoiled and rotten food as fertilizer. I know you guys have said no regarding bathroom business, but have the topic regarding watering and fertilizing the fields with your wastes been brought up? Activity takes more calories, but you feel less hungry while in the midst of it. You feel more hungry after, though. Food after activity helps build muscles. Some food are more effective than others at this. Swinging melee weapons indoors would be unwieldy in rl. Buildings may be more suited for firearms. Buildings would also reduce the distance of the sound being heard. Weapon magazines. Useful for handling and maintaining weapons. The weak trait penalty is too great. It should be worse to be frail imo. I would consider myself weak because I have little upper body strength. Doesn't reduce my ability to carry heavy backpacks that much, though. Upper and lower body strength traits. Body type muscles traits such as strong and endurance. Most food should reduce thirst. The body absorbs a good amount of water from food. Allergies. Ash from biologic sources, such as wood, make fine fertilizer. Night owls and morning bird traits. I really miss seeing the ability to sterilize rags by cooking them. Filling pots or pans with certain liquids. If you for example put alcohol or disinfection on a bowl, then you could put rags and bandages in them multiple times. Staying warm by sleeping in bed. Keeping food cool by digging it down. Symptoms such as nausea and fever helps your body combat diseases. Being able to survive the zombie plague. This doesn't mean you are immune as the plague can create new strains over time like the flue. Cannibalism. Zombie meat might even be safe if you prepare it properly. However, prolonged cannibalism gives you brain damage. Weapon traps against invading survivors. Shotgun tied to door for example. Risking death by eating too much after starvation. More suggestions may follow.
  23. I have a suggestion. In the Pizza Whirleds there are big menu signs. I want to build a Pizzeria so I want to be able to take those menu signs and put them in another location, but you cannot currently dismantle them and carry them. I know they're bigger than one tile, but so were the drawings in the Kindergarten, and they were split up, so it could be done for the Pizza menu too. Any chance the pizza menu can be split up in three or two pieces (Depending on how many tiles it is) so that we can take it? It would improve my experience a lot!
  24. Here is a list of my suggestions... I don't really know if I should divide them into groups and make multiple threads. I would like to get lots of feedback - both positive and negative - as long as insults aren't included. I know its a very long list of suggestions, but in my opinion, some of them are pretty nice ideas for the current game. 1. Different character sprites for different body traits. (Obese, overweight, underweight.) - I understand this is too much work for too little outcome. (Because of different clothing and upcoming updates.) But it is one of my most wanted suggestion... 2. Changing primary/secondary hand to right/left hand. - During character creation, the player has an option to choose between right-handed and left-handed. - Depending on the player's main hand, a wound to that specific hand/arm will have more penalties than wounds to the other hand/arm. - Holding a weapon can be done in either both hands, main hand or sub hand, with best to worst weapon performance in that order. (This will affect gameplay during injuries/amputation.) 3. Ability to sit down - on the ground, on chairs, on benches and on beds. - (With a 1 second delay for both sitting down and getting up.) - Sitting down will replace resting and will have the same effect but with animation. - Sitting on the ground will have the minimum effect with beds having the maximum effect. 4. Ability to lie down - on the ground and on beds. - (With a 2-3 seconds delay for both lying down and getting up.) - Lying down will replace sleeping and will have the same effect but with animation. - Lying on the ground will have the minimum effect with beds having the maximum effect. - Waking up will make the screen blurry for about 5 seconds. (From the black screen) 5. Push-able objects - such as shopping carts, trolleys, strollers and wheelchairs. - Can carry lots of items with reasonable speed but with a lot of noise. (Loudness is proportional to the weight of items in the object.) - Wheelchairs can be used as a future vehicle for survivors with leg amputation or leg fracture. 6. Sprites for bags - for equipping on the back, in primary and in secondary. - Different sprites for each bag. 7. Sprites for carrying heavy objects - such as generators and corpses. - Different sprites for each object. 8. Sprites for character's injuries - scratches, bites, wounds and deep wounds. - Different sprites for each wound on each part of the body and a different moving sprite for fractures. (This helps in multiplayer for doctors/nurses to be able to immediately take action.) - Sprites for bandaged wounds and a different moving sprite for splinted limbs. - Sprites for dirty bandaged wounds. - Blood stains on clothes when worn above the wounds. 9. Sprites for blood stains on clothes. (Similar to blood stains on the walls and the floors.) - Blood stains on clothes from fighting zombies. - Blood stains can be removed from clothes in a similar way to removing them from walls and floors. 10. Craft-able and loot-able items to avoid getting wet.
