Are basements and sewers really gonna be a game changer?
>>
>>1277772
>sewers
have they said theres gonna be an extensive network or anything? I dont even remember seeing sewers mentioned in the devblogs but unless you can use them as an alternate conspicuous traversing method they wont change anything
>basements
adding some RNG to the world is interesting from a looting/replayability standpoint, but I dont see them being practical from a basing standpoint
its better to have windows to be able to jump out of in an emergency than a base with a single way out. Not sure what to expect from the non randomized basements.

who cares about that? i can't wait for the fishing rework, my favourite activity in any game
>>
>>1278012
I have never enjoyed fishing minigames in any game
Fishing was very OP before since it was really just a time check so I support adding a minigame that makes it less braindead, but I probably will never fish again

Same, it being just a time check is much better than the shit they want to make. It's a zombie game, i'd rather spend more time doing something related than having to waste more time in some really boring and simple minigame.
>>1278424
all indies are extremely memed because either most buyers don't play them for more than 10 hours, mod them into a bloatfest or don't play them at all and just watch them on youtube.

been tried hundreds of times. Generally ppl can't agree on the settings/mods/rules and there isn't enough chan interest in the game anymore so the results are low pop serbs that are usually 2-5 ppl co op which die two weeks in.

>Activities like preparing a sandwich or making a nailed baseball bat logically require a handy surface to perform the work. The way it’s being implemented – any logical surface will do (tables, counters etc) but this sort of crafting will no longer be possible while standing in the middle of the street with zombies approaching.
This sound retarded. So what, I can have a hammer, nails and a baseball bat but because I'm not next to a table I can't do it? This the most rudementary "crafting" a person can do, you can do on the ground or on top of a fence or car bonnet.
>need a table to make a sandwich
While we do use tables and plates in real life it's not like it can't be done without it. This is just stupid. Counters and tables should just make it faster, or rather, make it a lot slower without it. And your character should just automatically use a surface

Yes, we can agree. The only faggots who endlessly complain about mods being added don't ever join any server (niggers also complain about the server not being open to cracked copies), they didnt' even join the vanilla server back when we had a modded one and a vanilla one on the OP.
Just post a list and ignore the bloatfag whiners

zomboid with all those mods gets boring fast, its like if wherever you hit a roadblock in a game you use cheats to spawn something in. When you don't have to earn it there is no dopamine reward, and zomboid is a shallow game to begin with. Probably why those servers have fast turnover of players, they get bored fast

Play unmodded while you figure shit out
The only thing to state about builds is that fitness and strength will never move a single inch, presume your starting stats in those are your final, everything else you can grind.
Add mods as desired, but most break progression and are poorly thought out for the most part. Develop your own tastes.
>>
>>1304278
Okay thanks.
>Play unmodded while you figure shit out
Really? It's an early access game, are there no QOL mods or shite that unfucks the game?
>>
>>1304282
There are plenty that are like that but it really depends on what YOU consider fucked to then be unfucked.
If you don't like that theres no lock picking or hot wiring minigame and those are instead tied to just breaking in and a skill level, those mods exist but I don't give a fuck about stupid shit like that.
What YOU care about will be revealed in gameplay.

A big controversial one is the skill journal: you get one life because that was the fad back then, however if you don't want to lose every skill and start over constantly like a roguelite speedrunner tranny, you can pick up the skill journal mod which will let you carry over skills which often take dozens of hours to grind between lives otherwise you'll lose everything when this inevitably happens >>1291428
If you don't care about that and take your estrodiol every day, you'll hate that mod and resent the suggestion of it.

So figure your own shit out, theres no real universally good mods, just mods which change things or bloat your harddrive with pirated music.

how long does one even has to play for cooking to become viable roleplay aside? I have 200 something capacity worth of canned foods stored from 20 days of looting rosewood and I'm not even done with that area yet
>>
>>1307096
once you get to like 7 or something you can sprinkle saw dust (rotten food) into your rice crispies
with skill books and the cookshow every morning it isnt too difficult to get it there

I love 7 days to Die, it was one of the first games I've bought after pirating it for like 7 alphas in a row. I play for a week straight every single update with a group of friends. Lately the game has gotten worse and worse, that update where buildings stopped being houses and turned into shitty dungeons really ruined the vibe of the game.

its so funny how badly the devs dont even understand that this giga retarded crafting overhaul will only apply to RP servers. you think the more normie servers will be okay with no loot spawn? fuck no. when a player drops into a 5 month server, he is fucked on loot because some retard built some shit in the gunstore or for whatever reason loot spawn bugged out. asking a newbie to go to fuck mcgee's house and his clan faglords to ask for a wooden spoon to kill zombies with will never go over well.

besides the most fun of this game is the looting and thinking every server will turn off loot spawns because we can now craft some shitty rust sword after 6 months ingame shows an extreme lack of intelligent thought within lemmys brain. players want to be able to loot the cool shit and go to LV to loot some guns and swords, not go to some players shitshack in the middle of the woods and beg for a spear because the map is completely empty.
>>
>>1308576

you could but youd be suicidally depressed with headache, fatigue, dizziness and coughing according to google

yeah but WHY quit if world gone to hell

>uncontrollably
I mean they're not gonna have a coughing fit based on rng but I know a couple smokers who after intense exercise will force a cough. even infrequently that can be a death sentence depending on where you are and what types of zombies (sprinters)
>why quit if world gone to hell
fair point, It does seem like its way too easy to keep your character happy in current b41 imo. in a hopeless world you kinda need coping habits, would be interesting if you had to choose between easily sustainable habits like smoking and drinking or something more annoying and less strong like books or food

One point into a skill on character creation means that you'll level it up 4x faster (2 is 5.33x and 3 is 6.66x) which you can combine with fast learner for a flat 30% gain in exp.
Reading the corresponding skill books will give you 3x, 5x, 8x, 12x and 16x exp respectively so the easiest way to level up those skills is to read the books before grinding them. Some skills also have VHS tapes so you can level up carpentry, cooking, foraging, fishing and mechanics just by watching the tapes. You can easily get 5-6 levels in carpentry with VHS tapes alone or by watching Life and Living at midday provided you have read the books, so I imagine that the same applies to every other skill that has VHS tapes.
>strength and fitness
Take fitness skills over strength skills for more reps, eat food with protein for a 50% boost to strength exp and do squats and dumbell exercises.
>farming
Harvest crops already on the map.
>foraging
Some professions and traits improve your odds of finding certain items that give out more foraging exp or they increase your search radius.
>carpentry
VHS easily to level 5, then look for places with lots of furniture like warehouses. You will only need carpentry 4 for rain collectors and 7 is the max for crafting recipes.
>mechanics
VHS and 3 needed to hotwire. Cars with parts you haven't worked on before give exp more often.
>nimble/sprinting/maintenance
Exp is randomly given.
>aimining
Shotguns, after level 5 your exp gain is massively reduced. There's 2 VHS tapes for this skill.

Skill points and using them.

Most skills aren't worth leveling and wasting time on reading worthless books during the first 30 days is a noob trap. Always prioritize carpentry 4, electric 1 and mechanics 3 on 0-30 cut off for utilities. Everything else can be read/learned at your own leisure, if at all.

I just got directed here from /v/ and your post is old as fuck but when the game had it's massive surge at the time we had multiple extremely fast high IP threads on /vg/ to the point several posters paid for servers and they all catered to different tastes from RP to RP-PVP etc all using different mods and all of them were heavily populated

it was pretty great, then I quit for a few years and now I got the zomboid bug and it seems like it doesnt even exist on the site anymore

Is the sex mod any good now? I remember it in early development, and it was really impressive for something just getting started. Surely it's developed into something extraordinary? It convinced me that zomboid has the potential to be up there with Xcom, Sims, and potentially Skyrim in terms of high quality sex modding.

I'm trying to figure out when I first pirated PZ. I think probably build 25 back in 2014, but it might've been a bit earlier.
I'm not surprised that there's still no NPC, what I'm surprised by is that the game is still in development. People were much more pissed about the lack of progress in ye olden days and I fully expected Indie Stone to go bankrupt.

They ended up getting rich by a wave of new fags when they did that revamped multiplayer drop a few years back
it was basically go timing

>really great time for zomboid for half a year
I kind of miss it, was way easier to find a multiplayer server back then now all of them are overly bloated 500+ mods RP servers with PVP enabled and 90% of the playerbase is max in all skills or all go the minmax route lol

custom sandbox with reduced weapon drops going great. anyway what I've been thinking is setting up a mixture of survival and 6 months later so that I don't have to waste my fucking time doing the autism life and living thing. will it fuck off if I set the spawn date to september?
>>
>>1291428
Why not use the journal or knockout mod?
Nice thing about those mods is you can crank up the difficulty so it ends up feeling like a zombie simulator ultima online and you and adjust if you lose skills, how much you lose, and if you lose book knowledge you can also set it to lose nothing etc.
I set mine to a small chance to lose 10% but I have mods for random zombie types, slower but still sprinter types, the sprinters shrek when they aggro you etc
rarer loot

makes the game way more fun this way

its like five fucking paragraphs i was doing that in elementary school. all anyone wants is an update to the work youre doing thats it. it doesnt have to be fancy. they were stressing because these guys literally do no work during the week.

look at SCUM, these guys release a simple weekly report that is basically bullet points of what the team is working on. thats it. thats all it needs to be. and these guys have infinitely more people to manage than lemmy and co. jerking off doing nothing.

It's hit and miss, it's far more fun to play now if you like combat since you constantly can fight zombies (puppets) now if you choose to, and things spice up and force you to "git gud" now when looting even police stations.

The static spawns before were far too easy since puppets were always in the same exact spawn spots if you were lucky enough to get them to spawn in the first place but I'd definitely like to see traditional roaming zombies like zomboid.

Modders will fix it though and can turn them into proper shambles to boot.

Why is he complaining, I don’t get it.

He and the other 3 main TIS members are literally multimillionaires and he can work on the game and push an update whenever it’s ready. It’s not like anyone is making him or his team do crunch work and they literally all can ignore the whining and just work on it and release it.
>>
>>1337299
They can and should just hire actual good devs to rewrite their turd of a game from scratch.
>>
>>1337279
>GPT: Lemmy, a developer from The Indie Stone (TIS), expresses deep frustration and exhaustion over the community's criticism regarding the development timeline for Project Zomboid. He explains that predicting release dates is challenging and often inaccurate, leading to backlash when estimates are missed. Despite their efforts to avoid releasing broken or rushed updates, the team faces harsh criticism for delays. Lemmy highlights that they prioritize large, meaningful updates over small content drops and emphasize treating their staff well without enforcing crunch. He compares their development time favorably to other games like Rimworld, insisting their pace is reasonable. The continuous negative feedback, despite the team's transparency and dedication, has led Lemmy to withdraw from community interactions for his mental health. He feels that the team's efforts are underappreciated and that the criticism undermines their commitment to delivering quality updates for free. Ultimately, Lemmy suggests that maintaining open communication might not be worth the stress and strain it places on the developers.
>>
>>1337376
>compares their development time favorably to other games like Rimworld
Rimworld has received 2 major DLCs adding cosmic horrors, the cycle of birth, mechanoids and more and several smaller updates along the way in the time zomboid has given us...
>checks notes
Pizza.

Maybe TIS selling their company would be a good thing.
>>
Rimworld at least has different sprites and bodies for each weight class.
zomboid still doesn't have that, how come no one has modded it in? is the code just so fucked that it's difficult to even mod?
People have requested this for over a decade.
>>
>>1337671
anon for the love of god, they spent 5 years animating the 3D character models, how fucking long do you think it's going to take them to rework all of those animations for different body types?
>>
>>1337673
The sad thing is it's not even difficult to make custom bodies, I'm retarded and even I picked up blender and just made my own.
the animations work even with more extreme bodies like thin ones and obese ones
>>
>>1337671
Pretty sure that there's a mod that does exactly what you describe (just replacing the character model depending on your weight) but I forgot the name of it
>>
>>1337376
thanks bot, this further proves that some people weren't bullied enough in school
>>
>>1337693
There is and that's how I use my custom models I just replace pear shaped with my own.
But I meant having multiple models for each weight trait so there's variety in multiplayer.

The dynamic body shape mod is spaghetti coded and doesn't work properly otherwise that would be the key.

>How about I release a post every other week showing unfinished features that have a high likelihood of not being added anyways for the entire games lifespan
Thursdoids are retarded, they don't give confirmation on what the next update will contain, they don't show stuff that is guaranteed to be finished, and they don't give any excitement at all because its every two weeks, and what's worse is a thursdoid that says they fixed a bug yet you know it won't be officially patched for months/years.

>halt to updates because it becomes a nightmare to merge and maintain a releasable build
Holy fuck this de facto shows how bad the code must be. This implies systems in the code that should never ever touch other code are for some reason. If he at least said:
>the update is to remake all of the bad code specifically to make it easier to focus on different areas of the game
It would have been fine, but he's plainly stating that they can't do frequent updates. How the fuck could he mention such a massive hindrance, yet not also make a statement that its what they want to remove first. I hope he just left that out of his comment by accident that looks so bad.

>look at the Minecraft community
This disingenuous fuck. Literally any update to Minecraft breaks modding because Mojang refuse to offer actual modding support. Players were consistently mad anytime an update happened because nothing was fucking in it and they somehow made Vanilla run worse compared to a 200+ 1.12 modpack.

They just need a project manager. Stop offering 6-7 different system changes and just do 1 at a time while doing background work for the others. We could have like 4 updates in the time it takes B42 to come out if they did updates like
>lighting overhaul
>crafting overhaul
>animals
>adding more crafting items, preparing for NPCs, engine update
Instead it's all or nothing and you end up with 3+ year gaps inbetween minor system updates. I'd even take yearly updates at this point.
>>
>>1324010
I think mine is only 2 or 3 and it's overwhelming at times, have barely escaped death many times and had to run into the forest tired with wounds multiple times to lose hordes.
Also doesn't help the helicopter event happened just as I got a car setup but I was fighting in an open area as it arrived so got spotted and had to abandon it to live, took me like 6 in-game days to make it back safely while clearing zombies.

I did get to enjoy my first shotgun spree with lots of shells, still couldn't kill everything but I went from 0 aiming to level 5 before I ran out of ammo.

>Comparing to Rimworld
While they're very different games Rimworld comes out with a massive DLC expansion every couple years while also being out of EA for a qutie a few years now. In the space of time between build 41 and 42 Rimworld has had three different expansions that wildly change the gameplay and add a bunch of shit. I don't like all of it but the comparison is retarded.
>>
>>1339393
the rimworld comparison was really retarded. then when a redditor called out his stupid comparison by posting the dates of release for each DLC and noted that b41 entered beta in 2019, lemmy went into a fit of rage and went
>well technically our very very last update to b41 was in 2022 so its only been two years since our last update HAH! stop with your statistic manipulation!
when he literally lied about this update taking as long as the slowest rimworld DLC.
>>
>>1277772
>google up the game
>its nowhere near as sexy as the op pic implies

>>
If lemmy wants to go
>muh last patch in 2022
then we can safely use
>muh last patch for b42
to properly evaluate the this update cycle, which yep, looks like its gonna be 5 years before this is complete.
