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!
A the title says, here's my suggestion towards the Dev's for another type of large vehicle that I for one would love to see in the game. I saw in some threads the mention and occasionally pictures of buses and other transport vehicles. Since there's already kindergartens and schools in Mouldraugh and WestPoint (probably someplace else also I don't quite remember) and on custom maps I would love to first of all, see School Buses like this one, which let's say, can hold up to 12 people or such in total. Now, the vehicle won't be op. It drives slower but has a large fuel capacity, it's harder to steer it at higher speeds and turning in general is a challenge just like in real life, also it's more durable but replacements parts and such are harder to come by (ex: only found on trucks and mechanic shops). Same things apply to the Prison Bus. As for the Prison Bus, being reinforced to stand up to more damage will mean that the consumption of fuel might be a bit higher but overall it will offer more protection for the player/s. Also, inmate zombies with a matching Bus ? WOOP WOOP! Now, moving on to the Trucks section. We already have the UPS type trucks and the mail delivery trucks in the game, but they are just for small deliveries. While I know large vehicles might be a problem in PZ, I think that they should be added since cars are becoming more and more diverse. Cars like security trucks, dump trucks, garbage collecting trucks and transport should be something worth of finding. Large fuel capacity, large consumption, hard to turn but with good speed and durability. Not to mention that they are loud and they'll attract zeds worse, if not the same as a bus would. I'm not sure if adding trailers to it would be a thing but I would surely love to see that. A box truck (furniture moving, delivery truck etc. Knox Telecommunication Utility Vehicle.
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.)

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....
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. )
