  1. I guess that is true. I mean before this thread I suspected this was a thing but I generally accepted it was my own fault I got made. Since this thread, now I blame auto-aggro whether I was stealthy or not. In fact I now blame auto-aggro for everything bad that happens to me!
  2. More like the horse has come back as a zombie. That's what happens around here.
  3. It's those armored heads. That's why I keep a silencer on my DV FTW! Pistol - Silencer, 2x, Flashlight, Mag ext - General purpose assassinations 44 - Rad, Cripple, Reflex, Laser - Tougher stuff and 5% trading DV - Silencer, 2x, Cripple, Mag ext - Assassinating tougher stuff Xbow - 4x, Rad, Cripple, Poly - Sniping SMG - Drum mag, Reflex, Fore grip, Muzzle break - @%$# has hit the fan, spec'd for hipshooting. Machete - Fortifying grip, weighted head, rad remover, burning shaft - For when you feel like getting up close and personal
  4. It used to be this way (more or less). The temperatures also swung all over the place frequently. It was a nightmare. Realistic? Sure. Fun? No. Yeah I hate using shotguns because of that. Otherwise they would be my hordenight weapon of choice.
  5. Ahh yes the good old days. It was like a pack of Endermen and Creepers stomping through your world. Now between mostly sleepers and 1/4 zed block damage setting my world is mostly intact for me to wreck!
  6. Why should there be any clear indicator that a trap is a trap? The zombies in that room are alert for whatever reason. Some of the suggestions put forth are some of the dumbest @%$# I can imagine and would detract from the game more than it already does. If there was some kind of tripwire or other que that I still can't do anything about that would piss me off more than the current implementation. For a game that is about fighting zombies I have never seen so many complaints about being forced to fight zombies. Hell, I dislike the BM horde mechanic, but having played with the option of turning it off, the game becomes dreadfully boring once you are past early game with them turned off.
  7. Situational. Yes, better to not get hit, but I don't think fully perked out and fully modded armor the penalty is most likely a non-issue. Considering that most of the time I get caught is the auto-aggro rooms I'd rather have the extra protection. BM night I switch to heavy armor anyway (when I can remember to).
  8. Now you just sound like a broken record. Game isn't balanced around nightmare/insane. Get over it. It doesn't seem like anyone else gives a @%$#.
  9. And give up the nerdy glasses XP bonus??? Never! If you use a boost to get skills, they stop working the minute the boost is gone It's probably an oversight. Although if the bonus/penalty on all armor pieces combines it would help offset some noisier armor pieces mixed in. Chances are if you are wearing all padded armor you probably don't have a full set of adv muffled connectors to slap in there anyway. Oh, also are you looking in the right place? You need to use the modify tab and look at the left side to see the real deal with the mods, I know, it's dumb and counter-intuitive.
  10. Ok so now that I am aware that auto-aggro volumes are a thing, they are pretty @%$#ing annoying. Am I going to abandon my stealth-build? No. Am I going to piss and moan about it incessantly? No. Speaking of, I'm at 8 agi with maxed skills. Lvl 54, so the bulk of my points are there. Do I go for 10 or put the points into other skills? We're talking another 11 points to finish it (6 for agi and 5 for skills). I am leaning towards maxing it, but 3 points per ability is painful.
  11. Roland! You just don't get it. You seem to think people learn a game and then adjust the difficulty level up to give themselves more challenge. That is not how it is done. Playing on the most difficult settings is purely for epeen bragging rights. Otherwise the people who play on those settings wouldn't complain so much. So it should be easy enough for them to do as they wish just so they can play on that level and look down on the rest of us, and they will start playing the game on those settings from day 1. Game balanced around default settings? That's just crazy talk...
  12. There is still sneaking or not sneaking. If I shoot a zed in the head with a silenced pistol it is still going to wake every zed in the room if I am not crouched. Another example is when things go south with this strategy, I resort to the Dirty Harry special which yes, all the zeds in the room were already alerted so it's moot, but it doesn't seem to draw zeds from the rest of the house. The way noise works is a lot of what I consider broken (possibly even the cause of all of it). It works well enough for game purposes once you get used to it, but it's still a @%$#ty system.
  13. Now I'll have to admit I didn't know about the auto-aggro volumes before this discussion. I always just assumed I screw up from time to time, which of course I see now is ludicrous! While I don't like heavy-handed scripted events in general, I can't complain that they are over-used or overly punishing. If this were a game like Thief or Styx where getting spotted and/or having to kill means failure (in expert) then I too would be pissed, but it isn't. Kill the zeds and move on. People complaining that it wasn't disclosed to them that stealth might not be 100% effective in all circumstances really makes me SMH. I feel like some of you are just trolling at this point. This has turned into a tempest in a teapot. Maybe TFP should add: "Warning, you may be killed by zeds" to every description and every journal entry to prevent any future incidents like this. Honestly stealth is broken all around. I use the silencer more for effect than because it seems necessary, unlike other zombie games noise doesn't do much and seems to follow very strange rules. If sneaking the arrow in the head won't wake up the zed next to it, if not sneaking it will. That makes sense right? 😛 I haven't delved into POI creation but from this discussion and my own observations, I'm guessing it all has to do with the way the rooms are designed. Sometimes I can run past a building and everything in it aggros. Other times I can tear half the building down before a zed notices. I seem to remember back before the days of POIs it being more like State of Decay where shooting unsupressed guns brings every zed in the area, and so it was an option of last resort.
  14. While I hate a lot of things about this game and the direction it has taken the last few updates, I gotta chime in and call bull@%$#, I love my agility build in a19. I can clear most of a POI (yes, even tier 5) with just my silenced pistol. For everything else, there is the SMG with drum mag. Stealth build isn't any worse off than any other build with the right equipment. The new perk, stat and loot system might be complete trash (and don't even get me started on the map), but the pure agi is the most fun I've had with a19.

    Gazz's Bio

    Yeah! Disgusting! Battlecruiser 3000AD never heard of it. That DS (and don't ever say his full name, it's like saying Beetlejuice or Biggie Smalls 3 times) guy. Legendary jerk. Never heard of him either. Now Daggerfall! Ahhh what wonderful memories, even as bug-ridden and broken as it was I still have nothing but fond memories of it. I don't know if it is just because it was so ahead of it's time or if Bethesda and all the other clones just couldn't recapture the magic, but it'll always be special to me. So a many years overdue thank you for those tools that I probably used Gazz. Oh FFS, now I see why I never post here....a ♥♥♥♥ing captcha? for real? is it not enough that we have to register with our steam accounts?
