  1. Nope. Perhaps a bird's nest was clashing with the tree (spawn wise) and this was the result. *Shrug*
  2. Sounds better than the horrible mess I got myself into with her. Lol. I jumped down to Grace's cave and hastily placed a few landmines. Even after dumping a full clip of my AK into her, she still murdered me. I returned with my spare pistol and a molotov and proceeded to break down through the loot room to find her, as she had moved from her original position. While on the ladder and with Grace directly beneath me, I threw the only molotov I had, which of course caught itself on the ladder's hitbox, setting me on fire and killing me. Third time's a charm, right? Nope, I fell down the ladder and got stuck in a corner. Finally I made my way back down, grabbed my original backpack, loaded my AK, and... came out with 10 health and a deep laceration, an infection, and a concussion. Happy days lads! ๐Ÿ˜„
  3. Sometimes to win an argument, you have to look like a blithering idiot in the process. ๐Ÿ˜œ
  4. Oops, my bad. Chickens can lay eggs after all. I was mistaking them for the majestic buffalo chicken.
  5. Sort of true. But from now on, let it be known that chickens give birth to live young. Let me win this argument. Let me have that much. ๐Ÿ˜› It's honestly pretty simple. Chickens don't lay eggs, but vultures do. Snakes lay eggs, but elephants don't. Most humans don't lay eggs, but Roland does. Capiche?
  6. No doubt about it, especially in 7 Days. Our characters can't run for more than 30 meters before puffing and wheezing like they need an oxygen tank attached to their back.
  7. True, but who needs a mega fort by day 7 or even day 14 anyway? You could simply make a staircase that connects to a walkway with iron bars separating you from the zombies, and you'll do fine perhaps up until day 21 at best. Besides, don't get too comfortable where you are at @Kalen TFP have said on multiple occasions that we'll certainly be getting a pretty heavy stamina loss penalty for using motor tools in the future.
  8. I personally think melee stamina costs are fine the way they are. Besides, we have the clubs which by end-game provide infinite stamina recovery through power attacks. As for sprinting, I don't see this being an issue once you get past the bicycle phase. (And even then, tap W while sprinting on your bike and you'll only lose stamina while turning.) A subjective problem (or lack thereof) with varying solutions, balanced like all things should be.
  9. Chickens don't lay eggs. Back to elementary school with you.
  10. On the other hand, waiting for your meals to cook, items to scrap, stamina to regen while running or swinging a melee weapon, they're all in the same boat here. Is waiting around fun? No, but balance takes priority over such things.
  11. Very true. Again, was just playing Devil's Advocate, even though the counterargument itself is ridiculous.
  12. Not that I agree with this side of the argument, but you could say that for every moment you're waiting for stamina to return, you're not exactly playing the game. Or at least that's the flip argument I hear with every waking moment.
  13. Game-changing question here. Do zombie vultures in 7D2D lay eggs? ๐Ÿค” Are those eggs found in the birds nests on the ground? ๐Ÿคจ Are we cooking up their children? ๐Ÿ˜ Poaching, scrambling, boiling, and spreading them on toast perhaps? ๐Ÿ˜Š Are we eating rotten zombified eggs? ๐Ÿ˜ถ Bluh! ๐Ÿคฎ
  14. Is this a bug or a new feature in the game?
  15. That's fair, not everyone is a hardcore miner from the get-go. I always go deep into the mining perks as soon as possible, if not maxing them outright, almost treating them like a Band-Aid by ripping it off and getting it over and done with, i.e. spending my points on nothing but Sex Rex, Miner 69er, and Mother Lode until they are nearly maxed out. After that I cherry pick my points elsewhere. That's true, but I've rarely encountered the problem where I run out of coffee. Drinking 3 or 4 of them is more than enough for a night's session of mining stone or iron. Anywho, when I finally get around to convincing myself to play beyond day 2 or day 4, I plan on my next long-term world to have the following restrictions: Survivalist difficulty from the start, no crafting ammo (or at least until I need to, if that time ever comes), no buying ammo or ammo components from traders or receiving ammo quest rewards, and trying not to spend 99% of my free time looting. The only thing holding me back is 9 times out of 10 I am in the mood for roleplaying as a Terminator-esque action hero, and 1 times out of 10 I can settle down, get immersed, and enjoy the game more. Perhaps I should work on getting more into the latter habit. The only reason I mine iron is because I prefer having several thousand crafted at any given time, and I use the rest for steel upgrades. That and I don't like having my forges being idle.
