  • You now first need to build a frame (wooden or metal) before building a wall or a window.


Added sleeping quality:

  • Sleeping on a good bed could reduce the needed time to sleep a tad
  • On the other hand, sleeping on a chair or some couch could make you tired even after waking up (understand you had a bad night, trouble to fall asleep..) and some pain in the neck
  • You can't sleep if too much in pain or anxious, take some sleeping pills to counter this

Just tried out the IWBUMS RJ; everything is looking awesome! Just a few things to point out though. I've tried building the various things and I cannot seem to build any metal furniture even though I have the required skill and ingredients. Also, the pole fence does not orient its graphic to the way it actually is in game (i.e; the fence looks like it goes north - south, but actually exists east - west invisibly. That's just what I've found so far though. Also, love the new litter mechanic! ;-)

Great news !

RJ can you put all that metalworking and carpentry stuff into crafting UI, some things are there , some you can only see when you have right items and r-click.

I took metalworker profession and crafting UI have only 2 recipes there.... we have that feature for some reason right ?

Also for Crafting UI can you make something like that:

white -> you know how to craft it and have mats with you

grey -> you know how to craft it but dont have mats

red -> you dont know how to craft it (due to lvl or skill book/ profession)

I want to try new stuff but dunno whats new as I cant find it.


Ill post few bugs in bug tracker.

I had two filled up blowtorches as well as a bunch of the metal pipes, sheets, etc. When I hovered over the metal furniture, it said I had the right skills and tools, so I tried to build a metal shelf, then a metal crate. The shelf showed where it would go if built, but stayed red as if I didn't have the ingredients. The crate placement image did not show up at all.

3 minutes ago, RobertJohnson said:

Crafting UI is not for the tile object building, new crafting are mostly in the right click menu.

Is there any way to address this ?

Like im having truble finding PZ new features and I know what to search.

New players might not know that half of the PZ crafting fearutes exist as they are buried under tons of requirements.

This may affect reviews, we old players know that PZ have deep crafting system but for new players that look just at crafting UI I dosent look that deep.

Aye, so, about blacksmithing/smithing/the stone furnace: right now it's disabled (smithing magazine shoudln't be there, I forgot about them, sorry.) as we talk with the team to see what's best to do, this may even never come, no idea, for now I focus on metal welding, but i'll let you know :)


About crafting UI, yeah ok, I see your point, I'll try to think about something (maybe a tab "Wooden building" and one "Metal building", idk...), same for colors naming suggestions, great idea there.


About jumbo trees: yeah my bad, I just checked with mash and I need to reexport the map, but i'll do another version tomorrow wiht more balanced scavenging stuff.


Gonna also take a look into this metal things not showing, this part of code changed a ton in the past days, rushing a version, so I may broke something (tho the metal walls worked when I tested before the version :()
