    You wanna use the realism to explain the stripper, cheerleader ... ok. But then when it comes to black zombies you wanna use the argument of a fantasy game? When it comes to add a black zombie there is "no need because its a fantasy game", but when it comes to explain why female are weak or sexualized "this is them in real life".. So you use fantasy when you want and realism when you want, this is

    
    pure hypocrisy

    Read everything again, but slowly. Don't get your blood boiling, you might not handle yourself. 

     

    Fantasy as in, anything can be in this, it doesn't NEED to follow or have something based on real life, but if it does try to represent something real (in this case the name's of the freaking entities describe what they are suppose to be) it makes sense they do it based on what THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. 

     

    And no, they are not weak, or oversexualized, as I explained before. But if they were, I wouldn't get in the way, because as i said, it's fantasy, you absolute tunnel vision social justice warrior. Find another house to bark at.

    So this is the "black" zombie you are talking about? you really think he is "black".. aham... now i know why you dont wanna see black zombies in this game..

    All zombies in this game have skin, no one has a black skin.

    If its just a game with zombies, why do you care if there is black zombies or stronger females? what your problem with them? You dont wanna see them? ok your opinion, but you cant tell that there is black zombies or strong females. Feral and soldiers are MAN. You cant see the different between grey, yellow and black, now you cant see the different between genders? omg

    Why are politics always trying to find their way inside a f*cking fantasy videogame?

     

    They are zombies, f*cking zombies, the only thing that i care about them is their uniqueness to gameplay, i couldnt give two sh*ts about the background of a zombie im going to get rid of in 2 seconds. And besides that, I already know that a lot of people (probably like yourself) will start calling out players for mentioning the zombies as "the black zombie" (in case he has a special ability or combat difference),  or the more deranged will start complaining about players killing minorities in the game...

     

    Also, oversexualized? Fat mamma? Darlene? Lab worker? Arlene?

     

    If you're talking about the nurse, it's your typical "sexy nurse", monster or not, like the nurse from Silent Hill or certain movies. It's like having a fat suicider zombie in a zombie game. They're so engraved into movies/games that it's hard to get em out.

     

    The cheerleader is pretty normal to be honest, and is supposed to be the typical american high school girl probably.

     

    The reworked model of the stripper, is pretty self-explanatory, it's not oversexualized, it's literally what it is.

     

    But if you really want "realism" in a zombie game, then every zombie should turn into a fatless husk with possibly their intestines out, pale skin, wrinkles, bad teeth, eventually no nose, oh and full of their own literal sh*t. So f*cked up, that you wouldn't be able to tell gender, physique or race.

    Nope, just another overly squeaky wheel to add to the ignore pile

    It's rather amusing reading these replies, as you obviously have no idea what I've talked about previously, or what i've contributed in the forums. Whenever someone says amen, it's all good, the moment someone presents criticism and seems unhappy with a certain decision it's overly squeaky? You haven't even started an argument and you're already losing it by trying to insult me. Keep going with that mentality, i wonder what results you'll get.

    So...is there anything about the new update that you do like or do you like to just focus on the negative (for you)? 😅

    I guess we are dodging the topic here. I don't want to praise any work for the bare minimum (and in fact I already said I what to say for this update multiple times), so I prefer to focus on points needed to improve.

     

    Physics on anything of small scale (ex: not flags or capes) is completely useless and a waste of resources. And I was simply pointing out that out of the many things the game needs desperate improvement in (player swim mechanic since zombies have it, proper VFX for hit feedback or improved dismemberment visuals, and hey I guess with limb physics when detached), we get bouncing tiddies.

     

    But nah let's keep playing defensive, dodge and avoid criticism. Praise everything they give us, because it's surely a blessing seeing that juicy discord tag.

     

    Bring the poop reactions and call me a hater all you want, just have some arguments at least.

    Yeah, but even though they WILL add it. It's false advertisement at its current state, I actually got hyped for nothing (thinking they added more stuff in 19.0 after b180, but didn't show in the patch notes).

    And I see you're absolutely ok with stealth being partially broken.

    But I'm sure everything will be fixed in time... I just don't understand why everyone is denying or belittling problems and partially broken systems.

    If anything should go into A19.1/2 should be these kind of fixes IMO.

     

    I mean, it's alpha, as Madmole said you still need to wrap up some of the main systems, so there's no shame to admit that some of them can still have bugs and/or broken parts that are evident while playing. But I feel like I'm beating an undead horse so I'll stop here.

    Stealth? Broken? Mate i think you are thinking of a different game. I mostly go for agility tree when I play this game and let me tell you, unless you freaking max rank the stealth perk, zombies will still be alerted out of nowhere. Even without perks sometimes you can stand in front of a sitting sleeper and he won't notice you.

     

    Stealth damage is a different story, but then again, mention any game with a stealth damage mechanic that isn't "broken".

     

    If anything, the most broken thing about an agility build is the deep cuts perk + fury of blows, that @%$*#! is super consistent. And perhaps run and gun.


  7. I chose "Other Reaction".

     

    So I, in general, "like" the new progression system as it does in fact extend the game's length. However, it was never about JUST finding better loot, the game kept you playing because you wanted to upgraded your base to it's maximum potential and see it hold off the hardest hordes with ease, this new loot change just shifts the perspective into making you focus on your gear alone, rather than your home defense or construction (this also ties into perks but I'm not falling into that hole again).

     

     

    These are the stuff I have been thinking since I first played the experimental:

     

     

    - Primitive items should be found in survivor caches/stashes, instead of having crates on top of PoI's as "Dungeon Reward", how about, depending on the PoI you actually just have a mini survivor camp where he left some of his stuff? Like some PoI's have the chair and reinforced chest on the roof(food ones for example).

     

    - How about having these survivor stashes (also add new lootable blocks mind you) not JUST as dungeon reward, since primitive weapons are not the best either, you are just trying to find (in madmole's words) "something better than what you have". TL:DR Low tier rewards with low tier effort.

     

    - Have a RNG system inside the PoI for a specfic set of blocks, for example, in shotgun messiah normal stores, where there's a bunch of crates on top of shelves and a ton more in the back. How about those blocks, get changed whenever the PoI spawns or is refreshed? (Switches between: Full crate, cracked crate, no crate, something else). It would also make up for more interesting replayability.

     

    - Following the previous suggestion, this way, you wouldn't need to severely reduce the chances of getting an actual weapon or iron tool, because that change would already be apparent as soon as you look at the block (meaning, you could be clearing out a PoI, for a bunch of open crates, it leads up to a similar result, but this way the player doesn't feel cheated on). It also should mean that if you see a pristine crate, it SHOULD contain, at the very least, 1 weapon + (mods, ammo, both, another gun), and later on much more and much rarer stuff.

     

    - And also, for the love of god, actually remove the goddamn special chests and crates (even in late game's rewards) from food PoI's and stuff like that. I'm not looting a freaking fast food restaurant for a shotgun, it makes no sense.

     

    - The big reinforced military chest should not contain bad stuff, period, it should always be the most reliable source of a BIG REWARD, but obviously should be more well guarded. Some of these problems will get fixed with the additions of bosses and special infected, i'm sure of it.

     

     

    Conclusion:

     

    It's going in the right direction, but there is more the devs could have done already to make the looting much more interesting until the great A20 additions that will also improve the loot balance. Some of the major problems that were fixed by nerfing the loot, should have been fixed by making it harder to get instead or spreading it out.

     

    My suggestions are take it or leave it honestly, i'm not here to get into more pointless arguments. The devs obviously have their own vision of the game, and I'm just another guy writing on the forum. Meanwhile I'll be waiting for the next updates and a modding kit.

     

    I apologize for any grammar mistakes that may occur.

    But you did make unnecessary references to the real word in your first post. I just followed suit. I count the word "realistic" 3 times in that first post of yours. But ok, lets assume that was a mistake (even though you use it again in this post to defend your A16 design) and you just were equating A16 with realism, since it seems emulating A16 is what you really want, right?

     

    What you claim is that A16 is a sort of standard that the game has to keep. Because some design in A16 worked it has to work now too? Hey what about a design that worked in A12? Does that need to work in A19 as well?

    Generally nearly everything worked in A16, because A16 was trivially easy, a pole you sat upon made in 2 minutes was already enough for the first hordes.

     

    PS: I build a base later in A17, (after some AI bug fixes and balances) with catwalks that worked, with two block thick walls that actually held them off and led them to an open corridor. I can show you very different base designs I all made in A17, all worked. And sometimes I made a mistake I had to fix for the next horde night and that worked as well.

    PPS: I build a base for the first two horde nights out of a derelict wood shack in A19 and it held up admirably. In SP I always use POIs I adapt slowly to my end-game horde base because it adds variety to my designs.

     

    I used the world realistic to separate the base designs in cause from the slaughterhouses players build, I believe that was fairly obvious. As in, something that someone could live in (not necessarily real life) and have permanent entrances, not entrances that you get to by placing down 2 frames and removing them, but anyways.

     

    Well, my first base in A19 was made from the destroyed house PoI with the water filled basement (has an ammunition box inside the water) and was holding up pretty well, until zombies "found" a weakness (literally the same blocks throughout the whole house, but these were slightly damaged) in the opposing side where they were originally coming from, and their hive mind AI simply sent them into attacking those 2 single blocks. 

     

    And no, not everything has to work, but practical things that look good and are built to protect, should continue to be viable strategies. The example you said "pole sat on", is one of the things that in fact YOU SHOULD remove...Oh and i did have working designs on A17 and A18, otherwise I probably wouldn't be playing the game. The point here is not to see what works, but to ask yourself why don't the others work, when they obviously should? I'm not putting in cause the bases that work, that has never been my point, I merely questioned why do they keep working, but the others don't.

     

    Oh and when you have double walls, triple, quadruple, you really SHOULD have it working. But as for someone who is putting concrete walls simply to direct them to the BIG *SS open entrance and mitigate focused damage, it's kinda frustrating when they prefer to break 2 blocks instead of going through an open area with traps (yes, zombies don't know what traps are) or each attack different spots at the same time.

     

    But hey, each to their own, i'll make my own final judgments when the game finally comes out.

    So what, REAL castles where build with thick walls and the understanding that attackers would definitely target the weakest spot on their walls. And attackers focused on it. And they were built so the defenders could shoot on the attackers while they were focusing their attention on getting the wall breached. Oh look, that is just what works perfectly in this game too. You are perfectly fine with such a castle, definitely on default difficulty. And like reality, if the archers don't do their job, the attackers might actually breach the wall and enter the castle.

     

     

    Once you learn the zombies AI you can go up the difficulty and build bases that withstand a lot harder zombies or more than 8 zombies per player. You build funnels and trap-filled bridges to your castle (strategies that were used by real-world castles too) and survive those as well. You are then playing on a higher difficulty, it should go without saying that you have learned something about the zombies now and can build more efficient structures.

     

    Yes, there are a few base designs that were invulnerable before (unlike reality) and are less effective and more difficult to implement now (unlike reality) but I don't see a way around that. (Talking about bunkers here, any other examples?)

     

     

    I can still how you my previous alpha bases, including THE A16 base, that was built on the scrapyard PoI and I turned it into a freaking last stand base, with catwalks, double thick walls (plates on the inside), spot lights, realistically placed traps, turrets and not a single place that was inaccessible to the player unless I had the drawbridge up (like real life). What had worked on A16 (having an open gate letting them through for the traps to take care of them, having some rogue ones being taken care of by the spikes and my friend also walking around the catwalks, yadda yadda) didn't work in A17, they prefered to break through literally 2 concrete blocks instead of going through a little open corridor (with an iron door, that has much less health than a freaking concrete t2 block) which made my base literally useless, and we just had to kite them along the catwalks because we got out swarmed through 1 little spot.

     

    Oh and invulnerable? Like the funnels and unrealistic killing houses with 1 way entrances that players have built and still work now, the funny pole wall protection that let's you melee them? My "invulnerable"  and realistic A16 base, took 70 90minute days to freaking build , terraforming, gather materials with my friend and still wasn't perfect/finished. If by that point i can't get rewarded with a proper defense, then the game has failed one of the main principles of game design. Not luckily, it was the most fun i've had in bloodmoons and I was always eager for the next. Oh, and I didn't build it from scratch, as I said, it was built/upgraded on a PoI, let that sink in for your "invulnerability is bad" standard.

     

    Also, did you really just compare zombies to military strategists and soldiers, with trebuchets,  catapults, oil based flammable projectiles, and other gate/wall breaching war weapons? Are you serious? They obviously had the cognitive capability and experience to know, even before the wall got damaged, where they would hit...

     

    You see, I avoid making unnecessary comparisons with the real world, but, with all due respect, do you really want me to play the same game? I can start talking about real-life parkour, how flesh works, how armor works, how zombies should die easily and not be able to do jack @%$*#! against iron armor, how swat soldiers don't carry c4's on their chests, how concrete walls would never be smashed by fists (unless it's a giant), how having a working, upgraded and solid vehicle like the truck would make you king of the apocalypse. Oh and how it's unrealistic that you build a literally concrete house on your own, with metal bars and all the fancy stuff. You can pull these pretty easily out of your back pocket.

    I really want to get to the heart of what you are saying here, but most of this is either just untrue or highly exaggerated to the point I can't see it.
    I do play this game, as so do obviously everyone else here... and this is simply not the case.
    What I do get is you have the same concerns as I do, but blowing things out of proportion isn't going to help others see eye to eye on those concerns. 

    No, it's not untrue mate, i'm not exaggerating. I don't use hyperboles unless I know what I am talking about. 

     

    Making a wall around your base means you have an extra chance per block, that they will choose another block. But in the end, whenever a block takes 10% damage or has a bit less health than another. All of the zombies will focus on it, so yeah you can spam repair it, but that's not really the point of making fortress walls now is it?

     

    Keeping true to a PoI's design and making it efficient is one hell of a fun task, but you literally have to think about how the AI pathing works (so new players are completely out of the equation) so you know exactly what path they will take, and that has only work so far in my A18 base (after A17 AI update)  on the elementary school base....because I literally had no block (besides spikes and blade traps bla bla) on the front entrance, and in the end, the base worked like a tower defense game, where I had multiple base defense stages inside (and yeah it was hella fun, until demolishers started appearing), but this is only because I knew how the pathing worked, a newer player will have a hard time if he goes by common sense.

     

    Your best common sense is still staying on top of a building and waiting, getting on top of a building and shooting them down through your "floor" iron bars, or hoping on unrealistic killing houses that exploit the AI (which is not wrong and doesn't affect me, it's just a different playstyle that keeps getting more and more worshipped). 

     

    My point is, the zombies are getting smarter and smarter, rendering a lot of previously decent bases, useless. And the player character is not even picking up the pace if the players want to play realistically (which forces people to use cheap tactics, bloodmoon "bases"  and those that don't want to use em, get screwed), again, staying on top of the roof is pretty one of the last few realistic and solid choices.

     

    Oh and zombies now swim faster than you, let that sink in, because they won't anymore.

    If an option had been added every time someone came to the forum and asked for something, the menu would be more confusing than the control panel of the apollo command module.

     

    Besides, the developers already have enough work to implement what they have planned. If they granted every request for an option, they would never finish this game.

    Wait until the official developer kit of the Fun Pimps is available, then you might be able to build an Anti-Nerdpole mod that works without having to disable EAC.

     

    That's a bit over the top. Adding a UI button + an event is super easy on Unity and doesn't take more than 2 minutes. I think so far I've only seen people asking for permadeath death option, and me asking for Zombie and Player damage/health scalers. So, 3 options in total, one of them being pretty straight forward to add. And the UI is based on drop down lists with pages, so no where in the world will that ever be confusing.

     

    Of course,  I agree that there are priorities, but let's not make this seem like such a huge burden.

    I kinda am worried. Like you, I want all this easy stuff patched up... but I think it still needs to be done carefully or you could end up in a situation where there are very few ways to make and defend a base that is effective throughout the gamestages.
    In other words, I do not want to see all the people making statements like "TFP wants us to play one way, their way, or no way" actually be correct when saying it... because I really hate that line with a passion.

    Making walls around your base has become useless, making anything remotely realistic has become useless (no, putting iron bars as your ground to shoot through isn't realistic), catwalks, improving a PoI and turning into a defended base (which is what i do) has become useless.

     

    Want a good way to survive any horde? Climb on top of a relatively tall building, and know some passage ways out (for example the triple building with the shotgun messiah as one of them, just knock 2 blocks of the bridge on the roof). I barely survive hordes in my base anymore, i pretty much do quests and loot all day, then work on the base, then realize it's probably not ready (and it isn't) for the bloodmoon, and just "wait" it out in a random unprotected building.

     

    A16, and I will take this to the grave with me until proven wrong, was the best alpha for bloodmoons.

    We are just not willing to push new stuff in when large sectors of the game are completely unpolished and need optimized and improved.

    There is character R&D going on right now for new player outfits that replaces UMA. It just *MIGHT* work for bandits too so once players are overhauled then we can decide if bandits are skinned meshes like zombies, or assembled parts via pieces after the new player clothing/armor system is completed we can do some stress tests and see and make the right calls. Then bandits can sort of fall out of the character system instead of a separate effort.

    I think an assembly system (similar to fallout 4's) for the raiders would be the best call in the long run, for more variety and without having to manually manage it. I honestly think the zombies should also get a similar treatment, to make the core game loop a bit more interesting. It becomes boring and rather unimmersive seeing the same zombie 5 times in the same area (considering they are all made to be unique). 

    Has TFP ever considered adding canon fodder zombies? (kinda like we don't care about l4d's commons or killing floor's clots being repeated).

    The truth is is that like the rest of us, you've been spoiled for years on walking into a bookstore or a POI that has a generally large conglomeration of books and having a field day. The majority of the reading material would have been picked off by survivors, most of which probably died years before the factions formed and Noah and the Duke rose to power. There's bound to be very slim pickings, especially on firearm almanacs and the like. You can't win them all, and if you can't accept that, then just do a little bit of roleplay.

    Say that to the church_01 PoI, that thing is filled with book cases that WILL mostly likely get you 3-5 books.

     

    I honestly would prefer a bigger variety of loot blocks that we can get those books from (for example shotgun messiah related could have the weapon books).

    We have talked about perma degradation but I'm not sure it would be fun replacing your gear constantly (which means swapping all your mods, dye), and when you finally got a legendary purple when those come out, to see it degrade away and become useless over time might suck. Imagine spending 90k dukes on a gyro and then you have to buy another one because it cannot be repaired any more times.

    To be honest that's one of the things that made A16's end game quite interesting, the whole taking care of your gun thing was pretty cool (finding better parts to repair and improve your weapon's statistics) and if you didn't build for weapon crafting, you would lose a lot of quality per repair. That's something i fondly miss, looting and mixing parts on the workbench, until you get the juicy purple quality ones.

    Right now Int only has one melee weapon in the from of the Stun Baton that is tier 1 or 2 as it needs baton parts to make and forged iron. So your not going to get one for a few days in game or later since in my experience those don't appear until your game stage is over 20 or so. Other then the Stun Baton a Int player also has the Robotic Sledge and that is almost as rare or worse to get mattering on your luck. So Int is in real need of tier 0/1 options to tie them over until they can get their classes weapons.

     

    Personally I would love a tier 0 upgraded torch weapon that is just a torch combined with a pipe via plant fiber or duct tape. Making a crude flaming pipe weapon that will be weaker then a wood club but can set zombies on fire. Now as for a tier 0 ranged weapon to me a dart gun makes sense that fires the iron darts used by the dart trap.

    The torch is your strongest early game weapon anyways =P and it doesn't have durability (like it once had).

    You better be a hunter in real life because a quick google search says you will have a tough time with a bear. Literally the first thing looking up that gun and a bear is "An AK-47 chambered in 7.62 by 39 is ok for Bear defense but the only way you're going to be able to kill it or put it down quickly is putting multiple rounds through it." Man people literally like to complain about everything without looking things up and for some reason everyone joins in believing it without question. Anyway bears are tough, not every exact vital organ is going to be simulated in a game that isn't a bear hunting game either.  I don't think the realism argument works based on how strong real bears can be though.

    Realism arguments doesn't work at all actually. And in the end, the game literally has RNG stats and levels for weapons, nothing in this game is realistic and it plays more like an rpg than anything else. People are blind if they don't see that. But honestly i really like reading these gun nutties boasting about the weapons n @%$*#! when in reality a videogame focused on realism would be boring as @%$*#!. What goes easy for you, goes easy for the NPCs aswell, otherwise you are unbalancing the situation by casually making it easier for you, defending the "hur dur realism". Want realism? I know american houses are made out of paper but try smashing through a concrete or brick house, try to gather materials and build a house from scratch yourself, try CRAFTING AMMO AND WEAPONS by yourself.

     

    Realism works both ways, and for that reason, will never work in a videogame, unless it's a simulation solely focused on that. A good game is defined by good game design and balance decisions, not mimicking real life.
