Tagging looted houses

I begin thinking and wondering can we give your charachter the ability to tag the house . For example if you already looted the house you wont forget by tagging it( like grafity on the wall or on the ground. 

Because I think when NPC is (finnaly) released then we would have a hard to time to understand which houses are looted ,  stoked or used as a shelter . 

At least it's my train of thought.

I always take zombie's shoes off and put it in front of looted house. 1 pair of shoes means house looted, 2 pairs means no water left in sinks etc. in the house.

But yeah, with NPCs coming, my way could become obsolete if they pick up stuff from the ground, lol.

Well you can paint on walls but only skull and arrows. A "X" and a house marks would be good addition. The problem is that paint weight a lot.

You can use spray paint mod for that.

I have used shoes like Geras as well or just opened all the doors of a house I looted.

 

If you only play one game at a time you can create private tags in project zomboid maps to mark which house you have looted.

 

But yes spray paint in the base game could be nice to have for that role.

Nothing says looted better than burnt to the ground....

Not everyone has pyromaniac tendencies. I like to save as many buildings as I can . Keeps more zombies out of sight and out of mind. Although I like occasionally set the zombies on fire... - insert evil laugh-

i usually break the front door with an axe and leave the remains there (maybe sometimes i took the plank and leave the rest) so i know when i see a doorless house with some doorknobs than they are already ransacked. but do remember that loot do refill after a while :P but i prefer to loot new houses and leave looted houses alone.

I've always left all the doors open of houses iv looted (I loot everything I will ever need from a house usually, but close the doors if I left anything in there I will need so I know to go back). Using an axe to take the door off seems a bit excessive and a waste to the axe's condition in my opinion. I agree spraypainting would be a nice idea though.

I use a similar method, and once I have a hammer and some nails I start taking down doors around my neighborhood to use for building and barricading.
