  1. I have some on the steps up, then the corridor. Split in 2 parts. If I leave the front half on, I only get to see the occasional head pop up, and then fall over. So I keep the first 7 off mostly, until I hear the demos growl. Then it goes on. (or if I need to repair the machine gun) 52 is still a lot, and will pretty much take care of everything. (and yep, feeding them is not trivial)
  2. 52 Dart traps? heh. Amateur! I use 60. yes, it takes a LOT of iron to feed them. (btw, with a corridor and the dart traps, you don't need the blade traps)
  3. Got 2 more from BM loot bags. Of course, there were a lot of bags to check. (next time, I turn the generators off before going to loot them, not just the switches) (I thought I turned the switches to OFF, but instead, turn the front half ON...) (I died) 😜
  4. Do NOT walk into your own electric fence triggering 4 dart traps though. You. WILL. Die. FAST! (yes, I did that again) oops.
  5. Soooo... you'd get close ups of the jiggly girl.... ... and of Big Momma Gramma Panties. eyebleach will be required.
  6. It won't make any difference if they did something like that. With a finite number of variables, we'd just memorize them all over time. "Oh, this is the DBL version, so the loot room is over there.." kind of thing. (more T5 POI would be a good thing though, however they do it)
  7. I find most of them in garbage bags as well. Some from BM zombie drops, but garbage mostly.
  8. you can burn through a lot of that gas when using the auger, 4x4 (gas hog), or making molotovs. Takes a lot of shale to make oil as well. Mind you, get half a dozen stacks of shale and you are set for a long long time, yes. (even more so if you can craft the 5pack bundles) I do tend to find iron with the shale, and I can always use more of that.
  9. My server is 4' behind me. I still get the the hits with no swing animation. I've also had the hit THEN the swing. It's random, so very very hard to pin down.
  10. This is why I said I'd have to check. I know reg bandage for bleeding, sewing kits for deep lacerations. abrasions.. wasn't sure. could be FA didn't stop bleeding. Early on, I don't have enough FA Kits, so I save those for BM. Once I can make them, well, ... (which on day 35 I finally learned, so time to make a batch or 6)
  11. I do change stacksize of cement/concrete mix to 6000 to match the other items. I do make skyscrapers, big bunkers, so going through 60k mix is easy to do. Just saves on having to make extra storage boxes. (granted, later on, once I have a full box of rocks, sand, cement and concrete mix, ..) It's all the clay that piles up really really fast. (and I do dump a bunch of it)
  12. Nope, we're ded. However, unlike the Parrot, when you put 10,000 volts through us, we do get up and VOOOOM! All our Buffs and Debuffs are wiped. So that candy, buffy food? gone. (I wouldn't be against food/water taking a hit on death though. Waking up from the dead is gonna give you the munchies) Then again, it could be we just had a soulstone going, thus we never really die. Warlocks. heh-heh. BTW, I'm not against a dead is dead option. Mr Mortician. I'd take that as a title. Deep Laceration needs a sewing kit. (can't remember if a FA kit will fix that one) Abrasions: reg bandage, for some reason FA bandage wouldn't fix that. (bug or bad memory) but yes, cloth is easy to get. Red Tea is what I keep for drink until I can make purified water. Goldenrod Tea is for dysentry (red won't fix). Can usually skip that one. Vitamins: sometimes I find a bunch, sometimes none. Since I don't know what gives the fatigue, I keep some with me. (it's a very heavy hit if you get it) Infection: yeah, can skip that later on. Early on when having to run to get home, ... Painkillers, drink, food, bandages, sewing kit. Well gee, have to make choices on what to carry. Whodathunkit. (going to have to do a couple tests on the FA bandages and FA kits though)
  13. I like how all the debuffs are wiped when you DIE. Yer DEAD. Pushing up the daisies. etc. All your infections etc should be gone. Yer DEAD! Not undead. You DO get the XP penalty, so have to work at it to overcome that and start progressing again. That is your penalty. The old way resulted in deathloops. A16 you lost wellness, but there was a hard floor, and you could raise that with perks. Deathloops are no fun for anyone. The length of time to recover from broken bits, sprains, yep, that is a problem early on, no doubt. As stated though, armor does help avoid that. Should be easy enough to get padded armor even on day 1 or 2. (just a bit of duct tape and cloth. check all the garbage, you should find enough to make 5 pieces) Later on, with perks, it is a minor inconvenience mostly. Mostly. Broken legs I think are the worst. (arms being second if doing melee) The fatigue thing, I never figured out HOW happened. (happened to me once, and not sure just what did it) Now, I always keep spare meds either on me, or in the vehicle. (always had spare bandages, FA kits, splints) If you use larger backpacks/storage, then it's a minor thing. On the basic though? Bandage. FA Bandage. painkillers. splints. vitamins. honey/antibio. tea. Water. Food. Sewing kit. FA Kit. There is 11 things for the "just in case I get thumped". A BIG chunk of the default backpack. (can it be trimmed down? of course. Which ones to you pass on though? hrmm) That's a big enough wall of text for today. 😛
  14. er? I just drill the zombie with the auger. Makes a nice squelchy sound.
  15. once I get to make Q5 M60s, I'm not too worried about gamestage, providing I can make enough bullets. once I get to 100k 7.62, then I start to get that warm comfy feeling. oh, I do have to save some dukes for later, when I can try and get 6 Q6 solar cells.
  16. I smelt them. I never haven enough bullets. No, 20k bullets is NOT enough. 😛 (but that's not a bad idea, particularly if you're close to a levelup)
  17. Put it this way, if you CAN put it into the tool/weapon etc, then it will do something. (try putting customized fittings into padded armor. you can't. greyed out) ergogrip works very well with tools. It's a must have for me. REALLY useful once you get to steel. SexRex and coffee works for iron, but need the grip at steel. If I get a Q6 stone shovel, I tend to keep that until Q5 iron and ergo grip. I'm at lvl 40 and just starting to put points into LotL. I max miner/motherload, 3 in cookery, and get to Q5 lvl for machineguns as priorities. Foods next, then more in heavy armor. Since I do the machineguns I need lotsa bullets. LOTS. Lots of forged iron for bars and spikes required. Cement. Rocks. Never enough early on. So mining gets maxed. Oh, always at least 1 point in sneak attacks. If you're crouched and shooting, even if they see you, it seems to count. (just bought up all the steel I could, scrapped my lowbie mgs, and had just enough to make a Q5 M60. Had to use the toughguy glasses for the last point in health to make it. ) We all have differing playstyles. sorry for the long post.
  18. Don't forget the Ergonomic Grip and SexRex. That and coffee, well, you can swing all day long, and yes, time is a factor. I swap to iron once I get to 2 or 3 of sexrex, steel, I wait until it's 4/4 and I can make Q5 tools. (bunkerbuster, iron breaker, ergonomic grip) Now, if you have all the mining books, would be funny to see how the stone axe does, as you still have the same chance to one shot the block.
  19. Ground roads should be ok, but the elevated highways are always busted up. You can fix them in the game though. (they do make nice starting bases though. zeds don't seem to spawn up top, just below)
  20. This is why I prefer to just shoot them from a distance.
  21. It's infrequent. Mostly after a ragdoll effect. They've hit around corners of a doorway, had a nasty one in the barn (the big farm one in navezgane), the wall they break out from the pigpens. The 2 in there were ragdolling trying to get out, one did, the other seems to be stuck falling over his own feet, then teleported behind me and bopped me. I still got him. I'm seeing this on the dedi server. Didn't see much of it in SP local. Have to test more. It's weird.
  22. It seems the animation and actual attacks are out of sync. I've been hit, but there was no swing. Also seeing them doing the electric slide a LOT more in 19.2 (this is with the dedi server.) Going to test some more, but that out of sync thing is really off putting. (and yes, the melee range does feel a bit long)
  23. cooking pots are indeed everywhere. so is duct tape and glue. that's why I loot every single garbage thing I run across. I have enough tape on day 1 to make q1 padded armor. Beakers though, one game, 30+ days to get 1. (then I got a bunch in a couple days) new game? 2 of them on day 3 from a pop'n'pills. (prev game, did a bunch of those and 2 hospitals. none. no chemstation. Oh, traders have 2. bought the stations. THEN I started finding beakers) RNG was not nice. 😛
  24. About the set bonus, I think ppl are asking if it will work in the way of Diablo 3. 2 pc bonus: blabla 4 pc bonus: blabla Alot goes on where you try for bonus from 2 sets that have a good synergy. (and the ring that means you get the bonus with 1 less piece, but min is 2pcs) So is it that style, or just 1 extra bonus for the full set only? oh, as for the swapping outfits for short times, yeah, some are, but for mining, I tend to spend the night mining, then other stuff in daytime swapping out just for hitting the traders, well, even that I tend to just do every 3 days. Of course, all this will depend on just what the set bonus actually are. (gotta wait for that) now I need moar coffee. stayed up too late watching movies again. I'll never learn. 😛
  25. Clothing sets for what you plan to do, well, you kinda have that IRL, so don't see a problem for it in game, nor switching to them for the activity. Mining: hard hat. boots. derp. Farming, chopping etc. Zed killing? Guns. Lotsa guns. (or Big f'n guns.. too small. oh yeah..) If the set bonus are worth it, yep I'll be switching. (no diff than having coffee for mining, or beer for punchypunch time) (could use a pitchfork for the farmer. just for the screenshots) 😛
