  • [MP] Added an UI for admin to manage player's inventory.
  • [MP] When a server save will occur all client will be unable to perform anything (paused, server option).
  • [MP] Got rid of TransactionID while it's bugged & it made server saving longer.
  • Large piles of rotten corpses will make you feel ill and sad if you stay close to them for extended periods.
  • You can now dig graves with a shovel. (Ability to bury multiple bodies in the same grave will come in 38.2)
    • If you're carrying a corpse, you can bury it in an empty grave.
  • Added new sub menu in carpentry "Misc".
    • In "Misc" you'll find a wooden cross, acairn and a wooden memorial picket to go alongside the graves you dig.
  • Changes in clothing:
    • Clothing can now become dirty over extended periods, dependant on your activities.
    • Fighting zombies will make your clothing bloody.
    • If you're wearing dirty or bloody clothing over an open wound then chances of infection (normal infection, not zombie) will increase.
    • Clothing now also has durability, every time you get hit you'll lose a little.
    • Some clothing is more resistant than others.
  • Added new sandbox options:
    • Generator Spawn: Increase/decrease the chance of electrical generators spawning on the map.
    • Generator Fuel Consumption: Impacts how much fuel is consumed by generators. A generator that needs no fuel should be set to 0.0. (Replaces GeneratorFuelConsumed server option)
    • Randomized House Chance: Increase/decrease probability of discovering randomized safe house on the map: either burnt out, containing loot stashes, dead survivor bodies etc.
    • Annotated Map Chance: Impacts on how often a looted map will have annotations marked on it by a deceased survivor.
    • Zombie Construction Damage: Governs whether or not zombies can destroy player constructions and defences.
    • Free Trait Points: Adds free points during character creation.
    • Player-built Construction Strength: Gives player-built constructions extra hit points so they are more resistant to zombie damage.

    • Fire spread (previously No Fire spread on server): allow or not spreading fire.
  • TV and Radio programmes now have an impact on the character's moodles. If watching an instructional show then an XP multiplier is received.
  • [MP] Added a "Level Up" button on the player stats UI to quickly level up a perk without using global point.
  • Changed how custom maps are loaded:

    • After selecting your mod, you now arrive on the "select spawn location" screen and no more "select map" screen to avoid confusion.
    • Every map mods enabled is now loaded, including their spawnpoints.
    • It means you don't need to code your own multiple maps mod to load more than one.
  • Changes on world view:    
    • Building levels above the player are ONLY hidden for the "current building".
    • "Current building" defined as the building you're inside OR if you're outside, the building blocking our view of the player character OR a building whose window you're look through.
    • To peek through a window stand adjacent and face it.
    • Building levels are also hidden when the nearest visible zombie is behind a building. So if your character looks behind the back wall of a building and there's a zombie there the building's floors will be hidden just as they would if you walked behind the building.
    • Building exterior walls are no longer stencilled to transparent when you're outside unless they are actually blocking the view of your character.

  • Increase player's constructions hit points.
  • Removed starting year sandbox option.

  • Fixed water pouring bug.
  • Fixed lampost still active when electricity was down.
  • Fixed being able to build thing inside player's safehouse.
  • Fixed being able to climb through windows into a player's safehouse.

It's hilarious that it's possible to just die by standing next to some corpses for 2 in-game hours.

Also, while I like the feature itself, I think the bloody clothes thing should have came in along with blood texture overlays for characters, the utter lack of any visuals in the area just make it feel completely "meh".

Love the new sandbox options BTW.

Not entirely sure that's working 'as designed' then!

 

As for the bloody clothes thing, yeah it's definitely been built with the new anims/models in mind.

Really looking forward to pitch-black darkness at night and hyperactive zombies, but I literally cannot decide if I wanna wait for the stable branch or help testing lol.

 

However, I do wonder if the dirty clothing mechanic would be best added under the new animations, because I feel like without a visual indication, it would be an annoying feature,

Well, I was standing next to some 50 dead zombies just to see what would happen, got the Fever moodle after a short while and after a while of having it my character died. I would get getting some disease and unless the character takes anti-biotics and some other medicine they will get more and more sick and after a few days or a week start to die.

As it is it just feels like dead zombies emit Chernobyl levels of radiation.

Yeah,  what you describe is what it's going for. Fairly sure it'll be a bug, but RJ will know. It'll probably get changed in the next version or so in any case.

Also,what about zombie clothings? Can you make it already dirty?

( If zombie was a player - maybe even depend on how long he was dead )

I killed maybe 6 - 8 zombies outside of my base and within 2 - 3 real life minutes I'm already queasy. I don't have a shovel though, so how else can I get rid of the corpses?

Genuine question. Thanks. :)

Everything the player can see is fairly bright even with Pitch Black nights, Flashlights are still very optional where I was hoping that it would be barely possible to walk around without them at night on that setting, I was hoping for full on Darkwood (It's a video game) like nights.

Also, and I've had that issue since forever, flashlights themselves should be brighter. The area illuminated by the flashlight is barely brighter than the general ambient brightness of player's FOV.

Edit: The above is 100 times worse with Shaders on.

Random speed on zombies is my new favorite setting, some zombies kinda stutter between shambling/running sometimes. It's rare though and stops as they get close.

The more I play the more I feel that should be the case.

Died in 10 hours. I was never able to outrun the sickness somehow. I made it away from the corpses around my house and felt a little better for like a second, but then I decided to go back and use my new hope to clean up the corpses and the sickness went back to where it was. Finally, I decided I would have to go on the run from the sickness if I had any hope of surviving, but it seems like even the corpses that randomly spawn from the game were contributing to my sickness. Either that, or the 6 - 8 corpses at home caused an irreversible sickness that snowballed into a terminal illness, ultimately leading to my untimely death. 

 

TL;DR - Zombies have some hardcore airborne super powered illnesses and they killed me in 10 in-game hours. :P

I agree, Night should be more dark.

I am dying of a fever just fighting zombies in general. 

 

Yeah, it's bugged - RJ's going to release 38.2 tomorrow.

 

In the meantime maybe see if the following new Sandbox option can make life easier?

  • Decaying Corpse Health Impact: Governs impact that nearby decaying bodies has on the player's health and emotions

Finally TV programs do something!

 

Also, if its not intended to die (because come on everyone would die by  corpses instead of actual shambeling corpses), then whats the intended effect? Be ill and have nausea?  Can it get to a point that you get used to the smell? 

Does standing inside a house with lets say 5 corpses inside intensifies the ill effect?

 

Also last thing, is there any type of visual que outside of the soon   animations to know your clothes are bloodied up? If the zombies go for a groin shot like they always do, i will have to change pants?

I can't tell much of a difference between pitch black nights and what it used to be. Is it bugged? Here's a comparison of what my game looks like at night in previous builds, and here's what it looks like in the current build (It's darker indoors than it is outside).

 

Build 37 (Survival):

IWBUMS Build 38.1 (Sandbox w/pitch black nights):

593ee229926e2_Screenshot(382).thumb.png.8ee61145341116d01ff4b3ed7b960454.png

 

I wanna show a screenshot of Darkwood at night for comparison like Svarog mentioned, but I'm too lazy to sit in the game for 10 minutes until night for one screenshot lol. But in that game, you cannot see a thing at night. Nothing. Period. Unless you have lights on, but even then, the darkness is solid.

Unsure of the specifics, but the current issue I believe is simply that everything happens way too fast. It's supposed to be more of an ambient effect, not to kill you in a couple of hours!

 

RE: Darkness chat. This is me plucking a fact out of my arse, but I recall RJ telling me that he'd also fixed the 'phases of the moon' code that had been broken for a long while without us realising. As such, some nights might be darker than others - and that could account for the discrepancy in Baycon's screenshots. *All this is my personal supposition though!*

Can you update it with vehicles branch too? Also, why did you removed the year selection in sandbox settings? It's fun to start in 2017.

Well, the ambient lighting levels in pitch black night are more/less fine, the real problem is the ambient brightness generated by the characters FOV, everything in front of the character is so bright that it might as well by early morning.

It's super, super obvious if the shaders are on, everything behind the player is nearly pitch black, everything in front is 7-8am.

I don't think setting it to low made any difference, standing next to some 20 corpses, dead in 2 in-game hours.

The Day/Night zombie activity is waaaaaaaay overdone IMHO. The time-dilatation field the zombies are placed in (Because they look like they exist in slow motion) during their "off" hours makes them a complete and utter non-threat, I just killed 100+ zombie horde, all clumped together, with an axe during the day (Zombies are set to be more active during the night) and none of them got close to me. I didn't even have to move an inch. Just swung away until they were all dead.

I thought that this setting would simply turn zombies into slow, stupid shamblers with minimal senses and strength when they're not active but they would still remain somewhat threatening. Like, let's say my settings are

- Runners, Strong, Navigate + Open Doors, Superhuman Senses

I imagined that if I set them to Active at Night, during the day they would just be.

- Slow Shamblers, Weak, Basic Pathfinding, Very poor senses.

Basically, whatever is the lowest possible setting for zombies, that would be applied during off hours while during the on hours they would act according to Sandbox preset.
