I am just saying that there should be a new city or a few. I will put a list of the cities and what can be found in them.

 

City #1: A big city

 

A Highway-It would be filled with cars and zombies. The over passes could collapse and then leave a giant hole between the route.

 

A 5 star Hotel- It would have multiple stories and each floor would have about 5-7 rooms. The elevator would work until power goes out. There would be a Little breakfast place inside, Have its own basement full of supplies, Then there could also be on the top floor a penthouse. Above that is a helipad and an empty roof.

 

A hospital-The hospital would have a generator to power it even after the apocalypse but in order to get in you would have to get through hundreds of zombies. There would be high grade pain killers, Bandages, Slings for fractures and sprains, and a few tools. This would be a dangerous e survive or thrive moment.

 

A Club- This place has booze till the zombies come home. It is dark inside but contains a lot of alcohol and a few things off food like some chips. The front has an empty dance floor but not much can be done with it. 

 

Electronics store- This place has been raided for the most part but contains batteries, some books, DVDs, a few useless things like Computer mice and flash drives. DVDs can be played on TVs at home for entertainment. 

 

Gourmet restaurant- It has fresh everything, a deep freezer in the back that keeps everything fresher even after power goes out for a total of 2 weeks before that stuff goes bad. They have 2 stoves, 3 sinks and just about every food. They also have every cooking tool from baking pans to cooking pots. They also have about 50-60 forks and spoons as well as a ton of knifes. 

 

Clothing store- has just about every fashion any zombie could wish for. Winter coats to keep warm, Raincoats to keep dry, Hiking boots and running shoes. Everything a zombies could want.

 

A fire station- It has fire gear, axes, and firetrucks as well as a little room upstairs to live in for a while including some books, a fridge, a sink, and a couch. alarm can go off and is louder than  the other alarms but it will not work after the power goes out. 

 

An Auto shop- Filled with wrenches, screwdrivers, and car parts. when cars are added this will be the place to go. 

 

Junkyard-A place that if you look on the ground you can find empty cans, old clothes, zombies, and sometimes some food. If you are lucky you may find a weapon or tool.

 

Gas station- It has a little bit left as well as a convenience store but the store doesn't have much. It also has a small car wash next to it.

 

Airport-This place has suitcases and backpacks scattered everywhere. There are small gift shops and food stores. In the front is a huge parking lot. There are planes with salty peanuts and zombies. The place is filled but may be worth the risk. 

 

Camping store-As raided as it is it contains a tent kit, Fire starters, MREs, weapons, and everything else you could want.

 

Post office- This place contains a lot of mail and stamps but in the back is a room filled with boxes that can contain ANYTHING. It may be a fork shipment or it could be a box of bullets. There may be some string or there could be guns.

 

Homes-These homes are the suburbs and contain very little rare objects. Just normal homes.

 

Library- Has just about every book you could want to read. It seems quiet empty and has Magazines and books. Only problem is can you find where they are located.

 

Sewers-There are manholes in the street. Under ground there is... Not much to be seen. Its dark, filled with zombies, and leads around the city. If you wonder to far you may reach a different city.

 

Casino- Filled with Money, alcohol, and a few little shops. Zombies may be anywhere in this place. Or they are all at the buffet. It has food, Water, rooms to sleep, and everything else besides unlimited power.

 

This larger than life city will keep you on your toes and have alot to offer. You can reach it by following the roads then getting onto the Highway or take a train into the city. Possibly walk and hope you make it.

 

City #2:The tiny forest village

 

Farm- This place had a huge farmland with tractors and animals. Thieving you need in the middle of nowhere. Has a well too.

 

Orchard- It contains alot of trees that grown apples, oranges, lemons, limes, plums, and more. It has some tools and a good sized home.

 

Cabins- These homes are connected by a dirt road and the farms they work on. They have a fireplace and candles but don't use electricity. Some may have bushes with berries but most are just warm cozy cabins.

 

Market- This place is a little make shift shack in the middle of the cabin network that sells some fruits and supplies. 

 

Butchers shop- Fresh meat stored in one of the few working fridges. It inst really over run but it is deserted.

 

Railway-On the edge of this town is a tiny train stop that leads off to the city.

 

graveyard-The best place to be when zombies break out. Has a small shed full of shovels and tools.

 

These are my two city ideas. They would make a great additions to the map with a lot of work but so far its a start. what do you think would be good in a city or what do you dislike about my cities.


That was bigger than i expected...

you ARE aware the map is based on Real Life Kentucky, right?

the city is known as Louisville, and the part that will arrive at some point will be the stuff on the south side of the Ohio River.

 

how detailed it gets is unknown to us at this point, we don't really want to see Mash go crazy trying to get every street and block accurate to Real Life specifications.

 

 

(wow, i finally got Ninja'd)

Ultimately, the real world location for which the game is based on is going to dictate what the map contains.

 

Why did the Devs pick Kentucky? they work/live in that area?

Nah, two are British, a third is Canadian, another is French, then a fourth Canadian. :D

I don't really know why this location, beyond it's association with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Knox

I was just saying because if everything is so closely represented to real life then it would be bigger. Just saying a larger and smaller city would be cool. They don't exactly have to be specific either. I mean if the game was exactly like IRL then there would be no zombies, you wouldn't be 27 forever, you wouldn't always die from one of like 10 things, and there would be a lot more to the game. Yes i know its early access but i think that a little variation would be nice. Or if they really want to change things up why not make it so that you can choose states. That way you can either face zombies Las Vegas or Oregon or Kentucky. That would be cool too but again not every thing has to be so precise so that is just my recommendations. They are not final unless they are a definite no.

as cool as it would be to have different state options, i think that would require  3 things

 

1: MOAR MONEY

2: MOAR STAFF

3: EVEN MOAR MONEY

 

they just don't have the man power to create many different maps, that will have to come from the community in the form of Mod Maps such as Bedford Falls & Dreadwood. you have some ambitious ideas to be sure, but try to remember the actual size of the TIS staff. this ain't EA or Turn 10, this is the best Indie Dev team out there and they just don't have that many people right now.

 

the game is roughly 3 1/2 years old at this point in its development cycle, and the map is maybe 40- 50% of what it will be when finished.

I love the 5 star hotel idea and sewers. Would be really cool. Another thing that would be cool would be if you could dig a hole in the ground and ultimately create your own tunnels.

Sewers-There are manholes in the street. Under ground there is... Not much to be seen. Its dark, filled with zombies, and leads around the city. If you wonder to far you may reach a different city.

 

 

Why would there be a lot of zombies? Do you think when the zombies came there were just tons of people hanging out in the sewers? That wouldn't make any sense.

If you have some sort of part where the sewers opens up then it would seem logical that some may be down there because of bums hiding in the flood channels that can lead into sewers.

In my opinion it's a pretty big order for them to fill out that you've laid out here, they can only do so much at one time and I'll wager they're trying hard to do what they can. I'd agree with you Uberevan that a university/College would be nice, maybe it could have lots of books and other stationary supplies, but again it's really up to the Devs what to include and where to make it.

Haha i would love to see a high population density city eg like Mumbai, imagine the streets so filled that you would not be able to even exit the building lol xD

Another thing I'd love to see is large buildings in places such as these where  you have to find supplies to get to other buildings without using the streets, like fire escapes and makeshift bridges

I would think more along the line of jumping from roof to roof or like you said the fire escape. It is a cool idea. If they ever get the time i think that id they made Las Vegas a new map that would be cool. It could be filled with casinos and urban houses. Also a little ways out could be lake mead and as a second city Henderson which is now basically part of Vegas. I know that would take forever but it would be epic!

why wait? learn how to do it yourself, plenty of people in here who will help you when and where they can.

 

there just needs to be someone who decides to do it, to get the ball rolling.

You don't need to be able to code - there are map tools somewhere...
