    (MP) Bite won't heal

    My friend and I are playing on P2P server that I'm hosting (build 40.43). He has been bitten by a zombie and it has been 10 in-game days and the wound still hasn't healed. It doesn't say 'Bitten' anymore but the bleeding effect is still there and won't go away, the bandage on it goes dirty on regular basis, but even when he leaves it on for longer, he still doesn't develop infection there.

    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

    First Aid Wound Check

    Simply, right click the bandage/splint, to check the condition of fracture or wound to know if it is safe to remove bandage or splint.

    Stopping wound infection with maggots?

    Okay, so I heard this was a common thing back in the day. (No idea if there's any truth to it.) But this seems far too convenient. So here's what I'm thinking. Not everyone would know about this because I certainly didn't. But perhaps a skilled first aid worker could think of it. So my suggestion is once your first aid gets high enough you have the ability to learn how to use maggots to treat wounds in order to prevent infection. Eh? Ehhh? Ehhhhh? Or maybe stop infection entirely. What do you think?

    Noticeable Wounds

    BASIC POINT: Hello! This is my first suggestion and I believe I would like to see well... Wounds. See if the zombie you hit is having your hits spread around or just in the same area, seeing the gunhole on their corpse, or seeing yourself bandage your leg, waist, neck, head, etc and the bandages still stay. Basic body damage to the sprites is basically what I want to see. Like Kate in the story! Her leg was bleeding and you could see it. You also saw the bandaging after you got her healed up. I am just wanting that for our little dudes and the zombies so I can keep note of their damage. I know this would be loved for just a bit of effects or for the hardcore dudes and dudettes that want to plan out what to hit and when. So... comments?
