  1. Alpha 18, the wife and I had just come back from one of our "between-alpha" breaks. Horde night went exceptionally well. No base failures, just barely enough ammo. We cleaned up, did a little repair work, and headed home. Then for some god-forsaken reason we logged off . . . before 4 am . . . Logged back in an hour later and shortly heard the sound of our second horde of the night approaching, some pounding on the fence. We ran outside and did hand to hand with the horde for the hour that was left until 4. It was glorious! When it was all over and we found ourselves cleaning up for the second time that night, I turned to my wife and said "That was awesome! We should do it again sometime!" She threw her empty Mountain Dew bottle at my head
  2. Are you running Compopack? I have noticed that a lot of the POI's for that have no regard for gamestage.
  3. Yes, Yes, a thousand times YES! No other game in my library even comes close! More fun, more replay value, it's just damn good. Over 7,000 hours in this game and nothing keeps me coming back for more like this one. ARK is the only other game that even comes close and it is just a little over half,
  4. Archery (I almost always us them for as long as allowable), Cardio, Iron Gut, Motherlode without fail on SP. Varies wildly with MP, I can play anything so I tend to fill whatever roles need fillin.
  5. Funny story, but his wasn't the game trolling you . . . it was YOU trolling you Edit : Decided I would share since I was being nitpicky - Managed to flip my motorcycle end over end in one of the earlier alphas that they existed in. At first I thought I was going to be ok, but then after at least two revolutions the bike came down on top of me and shoved me into the landscape, that didn't kill me though . . . what killed me was the game seemingly taking offense to my current position wedged between the motorcycle and the ground and deciding that the solution was to catapult me into the air. I don't know precisely how high I went, didn't think to look at the elevation, but I did have enough time to look around and admire the lay of the land around me before impact.
  6. On the other hand, in a recent playthrough of mine it rained for 3 days straight.
  7. I see what you did there I was thinking more like a dunce cap
  8. This is awesome, but only people who play would get it. And probably veteran players for half of the references.
  9. Probably not the right place for this, but I thought it would be amusing. None of current reactions seem to fully encompass my absolute disdain for some of the absolute horse**** that is posted in these forums. From users who post contradictory statements from one thread to another, to others that try to cover their desire for an FPS with "balancing" concerns, I periodically take breaks from the forums just so that I don't make a valiant attempt to get myself banned. The solution for this would be to have a subtly scathing, moderator approved, reaction button! Something for those of us that can see through the epeen stroking and outright confabulation to use as an outlet for the vitriol that we hold back in the interest of common decency. I was really sad to see the "Poop" reaction go the way of the dodo. OR a way to add forum user avatars/profile names to zombies in the game
  10. I have never once used those . . . because of the assumption that they would draw/wake up every Z in a 10 block radius. This is of of course based on the evidence in the game that Z's have superhuman hearing and can hear you open a cabinet from a block away.
  11. @xyth Anyone else getting a corrupt file message from WinRAR when trying to unzip the zombie pack?
  12. If it was just a rifle I wouldn't "whine", but even with three levels of stealth (sorry I don't remember the specific perk name atm) opening a cabinet, locker, or door draws an unreasonable amount of attention. As if my character can not learn how to do these things more quietly.
  13. @ztensity I totally get it! I am not stressed either way and I hope you aren't either Having dabbled a tiny bit (like a molecule in comparison to what can be accomplished) in modding, I have an idea of what something like this would entail and have no expectations. Was just asking out of pure curiosity. While I must admit that it makes me a little sad that I wont be able to mash two of my favorite mods together, I will survive.
  14. Any chance that this is currently or ever will be compatible with SubQuake's Undead Legacy? I have used this with vanilla before, but now that UL is updated, I wont be playing anything else for a while No sweat if it isn't going to happen, mainly just curious because I love both mods.
  15. I said anything other than clearing those piles, sorry if I wasn't clear on that. And to be totally honest it isn't "Everything else", but it seems to be a lot of other actions. And the "5 block radius" was bit of an exaggeration. But the fact that Z's can hear you thru walls (or underground for that matter) at 100 ft. range has always been one of my pet peeves. I was just feeling a little snarky that day
  16. Or how about the the fact that no matter what your stealth ability, if you make more than the tiniest bit of noise (i.e, clearing the floor trash that seems to be in front of EVERY door and at the top of EVERY stair landing) every zombie in 5 block radius zeroes in on the building you are in?
  17. I had been away from the game, the forums and mods for a while, was just getting a little bit burnt out. When I decided the other day to play a little bit, I fired up the ModLauncher, and what did I see? My favorite mod of all time was finally updated to A19! To say the least I was tickled pink, and then I actually started playing . . . And I just have to say : "WOW!" That doesn't really do it justice, this mod is incredible! I am totally blown away! Sub, if you aren't already, you should be doing this for a living.
  18. Beautiful! That interior (well, all of it really) must have taken some serious forethought with all of the "slab" blocks.
  19. Thanks, @Laz Man. I knew these existed and I am such a scatterbrain I forgot about them . . . even watched a few of them before
  20. Is there no way to add the sleeper volumes in the in-game editor? Couldn't find anything in this thread about that, and I will be damned if I can figure it out myself.
  21. @rickyralph Probably just my typical bad luck with random gen then. Sorry for the false alarm.
  22. @rickyralph It seems like the rates on your guns might be a little out of line with the rest of the rates. At game stage 51 and have gotten multiple drops of vanilla (got a Q5 AK47 today) weapons of Q2 or better, but any of your guns I have never seen anything better than a Q1.
  23. Yes, there is. But in all of my playthroughs in A19, I can count the number of times I have found it early enough to make a difference on one hand.
