Did somebody say something about roadblocks? Because I'd love to see roadblocks, especially makeshift ones with trash and wrecked cars and shit 

There's pileups of cars on the highway leading to West Point from Muldraugh, in the first highway intersection leading to Rosewood, south of Muldraugh, and on the car bridge leading to the Mall from West Point. They're major annoyances, as you have to cut down trees to navigate past them if they haven't already been cut down.

All traffic jams appear to have been firebombed as 90-95% are destroyed.

 

Every single traffic accident being like that is relatively illogical unless there is an implication that the military meticulously bombed every single buildup of cars without leaving any behind, so you should consider including a separate type of jam that's simply a buildup of traffic.

 

Additionally, you should consider not having every single car ditched on the side of the road being near - destroyed. Maybe create two different states - crashed VS abandoned, with the standard fluctuation of how much gas is in the tank / none at all. There are just as many reasons for a car to be abandoned and still functional as one that has been in a traffic accident.

Those pileups are an eyesore because they magically float above the road even though they don't have wheels.

 

But I'm actually not talking about that. I'm talking about makeshift barricades that look like they were cobbled together in a hurry using whatever was available in order to slow the advance of zombie hordes. Something like this:

If the military were firebombing vehicles you'd think we'd hear the jets and explosions, or that a stray bomb would ignite a forest fire, or we'd find charred remains, or...

I agree with Kim, since when story (On Tv and radio) population quickly died. So it's posible to have abonded car's on intersection's (Red light) so trafic get clogged (In first minute's of zombies apocalypse you would leave your car to check what happening with driver ahead)

  • Can't enter a locked car, even if i uninstall window and door. Shouldn't uninstall window from a locked car without breaking window, and open it.
  • A synchro problem on server allow me to pass trought a car. I go back then moving forward again, so i do this 2 times, and at the second my car appear the noise on the other one. the good thing is that i can't moving forward or back as long as the wheels were not on the ground. had to take a pick up to hurt car below to make mine fall on the ground.
  • Add hand brake ? So locked car would be more difficult to hurt to move. and without handbrake can push cars in the wheels direction
  • can we tow a car with rope ? (and hand brake prevent from this)

:D so real ! the number of burned and no burned car is inverted  (3 or 4 no burned car) !
the one at south crossroad of muldraugh is good big one. but i think cork should be more frequent than piluep : people in corks who give up their car because can't escape by driving. very good for the impression of panic. Little car pileup in center town should be more seen than big ones.

 

@RobertJohnson : nothing to do with car, but i spend many times to know the health point of walls and as many things : everybody know and say different answer from others, but nobody is wright, even the PZwiki talk about numbers with no references. So i read media/lua and would like some clarification and will edit pzwiki :

  • log health : 400 + SkillLvl x100
  • framed wall health: frame + LvlWall + SkillLvl x100 or Frame THEN LvlWall + SkillLvl x 100 ?
    LvlWall for wood : 1=200, 2=300, 3=400. For metal  1=450, 2=550
    Frame : wood=50, metal=120 (don't apply SkillLvl when just building frame, that's wright ?)
    I think the first solution is more logic : so a metal frame + wooden wall3 + carpentry 10 = 120+400+1000 = 1520 ? that's wright ?
    So the difference between plain wood an metal wall at 10 is very low : 1450 / 1670 or may metalSkillLvl is more than x100 ?
  • the plastering wall don't give BonusHealth ?

  • can't pick or put something in a bag on the ground. have to equip it to change content and then drop on ground
  • Lvl 3 wooden wall appear over placed object ahead (but not lvl 1 or 2 )
  • The moment where Tree grow to become an obstacle to car don't coincide when sprite change from first little tree, to tree higher (2nd size), so i can pass over most of little tree, but some create collision.
  • When killing horde in my garden, i got about 160 keys in corps (lucky trait), I keep 2 doors and build 7 doors in my safe house, 152 keys are for the same door (one i build). no other for an other door.
  • If I keep Left click pushed and OS a Z's, player hit on ground as Z's fall (and as I have to terminate him at ground). no really embarrassing expect facing horde, a shoot at ground, with nobody at ground while 10 Zombies are on you....
  • If i use the metod to push against a tree to up the maintenance skill, while I keep [CTRL] + [SPACE] pushed, if i click rapidly in inventory windows, animation bug, and I double knockback ! (will test this facing a bad situation in hord, think can knokback everybody to regain "full speed of leak")
  • kill a zombi with car isn't  recorded in the zombis kills count of the player windows
  • if i use scrollbar and release mouse button while i'm on other container ( in the right column), this select the container.
  • can't keep chat window on (window disappear even i pin it)

 

 

On all step of farming :

  • when diging, have to reconnect to see digged ground (already said)
  • when harvest seeds or vegetables : XP is applied, ground changes too, but nothing appear in inventory (no harvested seeds or vegetables) tested with carrots

[another non-car-related] Also placing campfires requires reconnect or "walk away from cell and come back" to be able to see it placed and use it.

In addition, the fire sprite no longer shows

Yes! I didn't realise that until now that you mention it. It's been a while since I last saw the fire sprites!

 

Edit: but you can still see the small flame sprite on burning zombies.

under linux i can switch multithread on, always  comeback to off, i check this before, saw all cores working when launching game so i was thinking  was applied.
(EDIT: forget was a still in progress, but it isn't an important bug ?)
I3 3,2ghz 4cores, 4g ram (2g manually reserved for game, but only 1,5 used), settings low/medium, tiles x1, compressed textures. 

 

  • Vehicle ! so i can visit the mall !!
    but no. On spiffo server the worth lag i ever seen.  cell don't appear Z's freese 1sec/4sec , i reconnect, cell desappear in my back when moving around, i disconnect and freeze, 2 times have to kill process to relaunch PZ. First freeze close steam (crash or not don't know).
    it's when i click on quit game that game freeze.
    2nd times "ps aux" (command line  of task manager under linux) give 100% on a core for PZ. So, don't really sure multithread is on (maybe is only a fatal loop on a thread). 
    I put all settings to mini when I was bitten in the void, so the game is ugly.
    before first freeze i saw a horde attracted on a thing, in a corner of a wall but i don't know what.
  • I think other players see are talk about that : when I drive at speed too high (about 40 mph) there is many "border of the world" in black , where my car stop with visual of hurt but without damages, and when following appear, i can moving forward  

server don't crash.

  • Unable to remove generator straight from the trunk of a pickup, had to drop it on the ground and then pick it up.
  • Found a pickup that was duplicating keys, after i had 2 keys the truck wouldn't start at all even with a key in the ignition
  • When barricading windows or making farm plots they don't appear until i relog
  • Insane frame destroying lag at the mall on the multiplayer server
  • Sometimes in the info panel when i mouse over the traits it doesn't show the tooltip saying what they are

 

This was all on the SpiffoSpace server

I see what you mean. That would be an interesting concept to see in the game.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I remember (from versions 2.9.9... onward, a few years ago), the multithread option wasn't working at all under linux (you could select the checkbox, but this wasn't actually doing anything, and the choice would revert at restart). This was also acknowledged by the developers, but I cannot quote on that, nor explain why: so if anyone else has a deeper insight it would be nice to know.

 

On a different subject, I can also confirm a few of these issues, namely that you need to equip the bags to access their content, and that sometimes car trunks work weirdly. I have experienced also all those farming shenanigans.

Another strange issue, a Franklin Valuline doesn't start. I have the key, and have been using it for a while. Apparently nothing is wrong with engine and battery, however with key in ignition the systems are red. Am I missing something? See attached screenshot.

 

Also: which recipe magazine is required to hotwire heavy duty vehicles?

harvest tomatoes works. so it is not for every plants. but there is a delay with remove tomatoes plant picture, didn't occur with carrots.
in advanced game, can find cigarettes on somes zombies corpes, but fungicide is very hard, to obtain :

  • milk may rotten, if u don't find spray on time.
  • after cutoff milk is rotten in every fridge.

can just count on respawn, that is not very a good solution. 
may can we find almond with forage ? and create almond milk to use in fungicide and cooking recips ?

Is this just temporary until the "end of the world" bug is fixed, or could it maybe be a server option?

 

I regularly drive a lot faster than this, and before the black screen bug I'd often go around 100~ mph on roads I knew.

It's just temporary, as the faster method had a few critical glitches that are being worked on now.
