Egads, that's a huge update. O.O

 

Are the bottles of lemon juice now the bottles of lemon juice you can use in recipes, or the drinkable ones? I'm going to need to plant a ton of lemon trees to keep up with my efforts to dry fruit (although I did run out of jars with lids last night, so no more jams for a while).

 

I'm really curious how we find animals like cows. I'm guessing it's not with a dog whistle. Do I need to go out and start forging Swiss cowbells?

 

I may have missed a trick with rakes - what can you do with them?

 

So much new stuff!

Thanks for the update..  :) And all your hard work for our benefit..

 

I had a bit of a dissapointment just now. I finally created a kiln and made some flower pots. I put dirt in it and tried to insert some seeds... However, it turns out I need farming 10 for that? I don't quite get it, whats the reasoning behind that?

Finding cows is the same as finding sheep.

Because the Potted Plants are OP. Had to make them hard to get to balance them out a little. Sort of like a reward for reaching level 10 Farming.

Hydro?

Do you can add please an way to make gasoline for generators? I hate that after an time generators get useless. Thank you :)

 

Potentially some form of biofuel, from crops for instance?

 

 

Iron, Lime and some other materials could also work to make homemade gasoline.

Thanks to Hydromancer, one of my goals in Zomboid is now to collect enough socks to make a unit of charcoal.

 

I'm really loving being able to use charcoal with the smelter and the kiln - I'm way of turning books into charcoal because that seems like accepting that civilization has fallen, but there's so much stuff that can be incinerated now, and it leaves me all my trees for building. Awesome update.

 

I'm now trying to work out if it'd be cruel to keep cows on the roof.

 

I do have a request, though - now that there are mines for bringing up stone, would it be possible to have a recipe, possibly involving stones and the mortar and pestle, to make bags of plaster? I'd love to be able to decorate more of my current safe house, but I've exhausted the supply of plaster.

I've been playing with the latest Hydrocraft build since last night, and I have a few observations...

 

- Switching the kiln/smelter over to using charcoal as fuel, combined with all the different ways to manufacture charcoal, may just be the best thing since sliced bread. I'd spent about three months of game time stocking up on various things I thought I could recycle into ingots, but had never managed to do much because I'm building quite a large base and I always seemed to need the logs for something else. Thanks to the change, I spent a day recycling stuff I had stockpiled up, and was really able to play around with the system - it felt like actually getting a crack at it, rather than just fiddling around the edges. I finally got my anvil built!

 

- It seems the dog whistles are one use only now? I found three, and each lasted just one use, and none of them generated a dog. If they're going to be one-shot items, I think they should automatically generate a dog - I had to loot a block of ten houses to get those three whistles, and ended up not getting a single dog. With so many dog breeds in the game, it makes the odds of finding one of the breeds that can help carry things pretty low, and that seems a great shame - since the efforts been made to give us access to dogs in so many shapes and flavours, I want as many chances to play with them as possible.

 

- I now have a top hat. This may be the greatest thing ever.

 

- Would it be possible to drop the weight of the individual ziploc bags? At the moment, a box of 100 weighs 0.5, but each individual ziploc bag weighs 0.1, so a box of 100 generates 10lbs in weight of ziploc bags when opened. It would be handy if the bags became the same kind of weight as coins and nails.

 

- I'm loving the new veggies. I haven't sat down to work out what's going to be growable via the the plant pots yet, but I'm having great fun cooking with things I've not seen before.

I agree about the dog whistles, I want to try the cows so much but I've scoured the map for them and could only find one, and I got a husky. Maybe if there was a way to make a Dog Whistle?

Lumber stacks and crates feels a bit OP in amount of xp for packing/unpacking.

Best way to get to lvl 10 carpentry:

1. Found three lumber crates, some carpentry books (not necessary if you have some extra time);

2. Unpack lumber crates;

3. Unpack lumber packs, get your xp;

4. Pack lumber packs;

5. Repeat until you get lvl 10 carpentry.

 

Got me about 15 minutes to max up my carpentry with 125% buff as carpenter specialist. Better to minimize xp from packing/unpacking or completely remove it.

Technically it is performing a Carpentry related task. However its up to the player not to exploit this since I don't see how to fix it without taking away the nice ability to package lumber.

Hi, I've got an issue when trying to connect to my on server. 

 

Whenever i use hydrocraft mod i got this text graphical bug, but i have already disabled multi-core both in game and in options.ini, tried reinstalling, deleting zomboid in my user folder. I even reinstalled Java and tried to give zomboid more ram.

 

I've got win7, radeon 6970m, 8gb ram with core i5.

 

The funniest thing is if i play singleplayer hydrocraft, everything works just fine with no bugs whatsoever, but if i try to connect to anyone's server, i get this text glitch every time, see pic for info.

 

So far nothing worked, need help pls

 

If you don't know how to solve the problem, give me a hint where to look for the problem itself

Being able to package lumber is such a useful ability that I'd hate to see it removed - it's made working on my large-scale safe house (well, safe villa/village) complex so, so much easier just because I'm not constantly running back and forth with half a dozen logs at a time. It's an absolute godsend if you're into the construction side of PZ, which I really am. The benefits of being able to package lumber outweigh the potential exploit to my mind.

 

(I really love being able to package up lumber. Honest.)

Do different dog breeds have different odds at finding cows or sheep? My border collie has found several sheep so far, but no cows.

 

I'm having a lot of fun turning all of the dead zombie clothing into ropes though, there are naked zombies all over my lawn. =)

Have you started harvesting their bones to make arrows or glue yet? (The zombies, not the sheep or dogs).

It work without the Hydrocraft mod in multiplayer?

Hydrocraft have removed crafting menu ("B" hotkey) from my game completely as for latest IWBUMS build.

You have the latest version of Hydrocraft? The menu bug should have been fixed in v2.6b and above.

Finding cows is currently broken. Don't waste your rope. Wait until next update. Sorry about that everyone.

Wooden Pallets !! (sugestion) :D

You basically get a temp one when Crating Stacks of Lumber.
