BUG FIX

[bALANCE]

  • Modified some experience needed for level on some skills.
[NEW STUFF]
  • Tons of new sounds (74 so far and counting !)
    • Ambient sounds: scream, dogs, wolves, owls... Depending on your current zone and day time.
    • New crafting sound: saw logs, duct tape, slicing food...
    • New foot step sounds.
    • And much more...
  • New Scavenge skill (does not require any tools, usefull for MP !):
    • Go into the forest and right click "scavenge", you'll find berries, mushrom, worms and other edible plants/insect.
    • The number and the type of food found will depend on your skill.
    • Plants/insect aren't unlimited in a zone, if after a while you don't find anything, go elsewhere and try again, they'll be replenished after a while.
  • Little revamp of the melee skill:
    • Blunt and blade now have 3 sub skills:
    • Accuracy: Influences hit chance, damage done, critical chance..
    • Guard: Helps you to avoiding being scratched when wearing a weapon.
    • Maintenance: Helps you to not lower the condition of your weapon when using it.
    • Accuracy and reloading skills are now part of the sub skill : Ranged.
    • Balanced how the weapon knock down a zombie (basically, a bit less knock down if the attack is not fully charged).
  • New crafting: make axe and hammer from stones, tree branch and ripped sheet.
  • The stone hammer condition decrease when you build things with it (like walls, floor..)
  • Build log walls with 0 in carpentry skill, they are strong but really expensive (4 logs and 4 ripped sheets/twine/rope), usefull when you don't have a saw and you want to build things !
  • Added a sub menu "Wall" in the construction menu.
  • Chopping trees can drop branches and/or twigs.
  • Panic will decrease faster if you have survived for a while (you get used to zombies, but still get jump scare).
  • Fishes aren't unlimited anymore, after fishing in a zone for a while, you won't find anything, go fish elsewhere, the fishes will be replenished after some time.
  • The items Bandages (the one you get from rip your clothing) is now call Ripped Sheets, still can act as bandage.
  • Added trapping skill books.
  • Traps won't catch animal if a player is around.
  • Renamed Scavenge in Forage.
  • Push a zombie on a fence won't make it climb it, but return in attack mode.
  • Added more chance to hit with a ranged weapon if the target is really close.
  • No auto age for item being respawned by the server.
  • Added a 15 mins day length options in sandbox.
  • Added wine in loot distribution.
  • Now render the dead body in 3D.

Will the changes in character skill necessitate a character wipe?  I lost all my characters skills in the last update as well and I'm just wondering if it's worth working so hard to replace them if they are just going to go away again Soon :)

Should not, what happened to your last character ? You're the first who report that problem, I try to make everything so nothing is wiped during an update...

This was on a MP server so that probably has something to do with it; however whenever any existing character tried to connect to the server after the update, it would hang for a long time and then when they got through the character existed, but with absolutely no skills.  It also occasionally would hang on an error indicating some problem with an item in their inventory, and then when they finally connected most (and in some cases all) of their inventory was also wiped.  This happened to pretty much every player on the server.

hmm, those log walls sound overpowered to me. Let's see...

4 logs give 12 planks which give in turn give 4 walls of varying strength depending on carpentry skill.

Trees are - practically - unlimited. So unless you're building your fortress in the middle of the city, I'll be only using those from now on.

Ok i was going to put this in as a suggestion. But I was going ot base it on the number of zombies you had killed not time. But that works to.

 

it all look like more fun down the road when 29 come out.

Hooooo this is gonna be good !

Question : Will we be able to "deconstruct" log walls when we find a saw ? Or if we just want to stack logs in a useful way instead of just letting them lay on the floor :]

will we be able to clean up blood in this update?

Oh yeah, u have a house? :) Know this problem, I would like that too, but it would need some additional equipment; besides cleaning stuff, bucket, cloth & water (all existing), there'd be the need for a broom... or u take a toothbrush.

Will the park rangers outdoors-man trait affect the forest scavenging? 

 

It should.

 

Actually i think they should go with some Neo Scavanger approach, where you can find mushrooms and stuff to eat in the forest, but when you pick them up it just: Mushroom.

But when you have the botony skill it says: Posion mushroom or ediable mushroom, why every mushroom in the forest must be ediable?

 

You should get a trait that affects if you can tell which one you can eat, cause if the scavanger trait only does that, then how will you know which mushroom does what?

 

Or even a book about Botony added to the game can counter balance that fact.

 

Different books of Botony would mean more stuff you can eat or craft medicine with.

Log walls?

Scavenging skills?

Improvised weapons from branches and rocks?

THREE WEAPON SUB-SKILLS?!

 

screeeeech

 

Question: Will log walls require nails?

Maybe they will, maybe not, but in my opinion it would be cool if you needed some rope to make them :D

How large are these "zones"? Just as a general guide. What qualifies as a forest? Just any old clump of trees (in that case would a single tree count), or are there predetermined tiles?

 

Will the sub skills require a skill point to be put into each of them, or do they all level as part of the parent skill?

Nope, there's the parent skill (blunt or axe) that cannot be up, then the 3 sub skills.

 

 

Will Aiming and Reload be made subsidiary to Ranged now that such a system exists?

 

It's already the case, I just forgot to say it in the patch note, sorry ! :)

They don't need nails, but they do need a rope/sheet rope (made from clothes), it's there so people without hammer/nails will be able to build a small house, no door/windows tho :)
