  1. Huh. Well if that is there then it may be more of a visibility issue, like having the infection rate flash bright green when you are infected or the infection rate goes up from being hit. Although it's still rare that infection rate out climbs health damage.
  2. Really? I looked at the wikis before posting but there is very limited info on infection, and honestly not sure if the information there was even up to date. Do you have a source for this?
  3. He's right though, infection isn't really an issue. You either die before you reach 100%, intentional or not, or you use medicine from your stockpile of supplies. I had thought a bit about this, there a couple ways to handle this: make medicine harder to come by add some extra penalty for dying while infected beyond a certain limit increased xp penalty spawn infected, with rate reset have zombies hits have chance raise infection rate if already infected more reasons to use medicines more dangerous early infection 1 is about limiting the supply of medicine. It's a bit clumsy and is hard to balance properly and is still a non issue with crafting late game. 2 is more about preventing a player from ignoring the mechanic by getting themself killed before it's an issue. The problem with this is if you were to die by zombies there's a good chance you go infected along the way, so you'd have to limit the penalty to only players above a certain infection rate (25%, 50%?) so that is only affects those that ignored infection 3 is more about making infection rise quicker and forcing the user to consume more medicine. Best part about this one is that the mechanic for chance to infect is already there, just needs some modifying. You'd have to cap the effect so you don't die from successive hits even if you have the health. Could be 1% increase for each hit chance capping at maybe 30% 4 is about reducing supply. Example of this would be a food recipes for honey and requiring antibiotics to be used in first aid crafting(probably give first aid kits 10% infection rate reduction) 5 is about making infection always have a downside, stage 1 has no downsides currently. Introducing a debuff like 10% reduced stamina cap or 15% less effectiveness from food and drink would give reason to use medicine earlier without making it life threatening. The debuff would be included in other stages as well. Anyways they are just some ideas on how to make infection and medicine more important gameplay mechanics
  4. Early game every loot find and harvest is valuable, it feels like there's no end to raw materials given our perks. I'd like to see a recipe cost modifier in the server settings so that I can increase the cost of recipes as my base becomes more secure.
  5. Can we have a thrown spear be replaced with a another from your inventory, it is really inconvenient to have multiple spears in my toolbar, just so I don't have to battle the UI and the zombies at the same time
