There is no specific effect on fog but by... being foggy... it reduces the light level and makes you harder to see.

 

Now what I would like to see is fog dampening environmental background sounds and making enemy noises appear slightly louder to the player. =)

 

Thanks Gazz.

 

About the sound effects. I don't understand why you would want to do this. Why would you think that fog would make sounds appear closer than they really are?

Besides, sounds are already like this in the game. I hear a zombies and it sounds right next to me when really it's farther away. As in on the next floor or something.

This is the character of the old Russian cartoon "Hedgehog in the Fog". The cartoon is very strange and in some places scary about how the hedgehog is looking for his friends in the fog =)

 

Thanks. Does watching this cartoon make you a Communist?

The 'snoring' noise that sleepers make are basically whispering in your ear. I occasionally travel past POI's and hearing these snores and I'm not even inside the building, yet they sound like they are right next to me. It's one of the two audio issues I have personally with sleepers, the other being the lack of footstep noises from sleepers that haven't been hurt yet, or attacked a player.

Any normal zombie you see that has a glowing green variant will be deleted and some new radiated ones made from the ground up to look mutated will be made to replace them. Probably about 3-4 unique ones, plus cops and wights off the top of my head.

 

I am going to read that as: All radiated skins are getting deleted, new mutated zombies are going to be added to the mix to replace the rad zombies and there will be a mutated version of the wight and cop. Sounds like a good plan to me, I am liking it.

Question.

Do you plan to add all kinds of buffs to all the food the player cooks? For example, a different duration of the "metabolism" buff or other useful buffs. Especially if these recipes require some rare ingredients such as eggs.

 

Reasoning (can be ignored)

Now food is mainly different in how much it reduces thirst or hunger. Exceptions are special recipes.

 

In the end, it turns out that I just choose one or two simple recipes for the whole game and use the other extremely rarely or not at all, since their advantages are not enough motivation to find the ingredients for their creation.

 

An example of such recipes is pumpkin pie and blueberry pie. To create them, you need eggs that cannot be grown in the garden.

 

And the effects of these recipes are the same as those of others, which require more affordable products, such as meat, fat, potatoes, corn, mushrooms, etc.

Will the nightvision goggles be usefull when the fog hits? Perhaps we can see way further with them like 30-40 blocks.

So I just discovered an unfortunate bit of info. If you get the book to get brass doorknobs from doors that visibly have a brass doorknob, and you destroy that door, you'll get the doorknob. But if your axe is strong enough to destroy the first (and only) layer of reinforced wood planks over the door (if this is the case) and the door itself in one hit, then you will not get the doorknob since it counts as you destroying that extra layer and not the door. That's... good to know.

ok i will pop. i am sure i will get flamed for this but i feel it needs to be said. so...

 

roland, as a teacher especially, dont piss take the boy.

 

adam, as a father of 4 sons, i want to lecture. because i care. stop playing so many video games. pay attention to your studies. learn.

 

your grammar (and spelling - check your posts before committing!) is shocking and you show a lot of general ignorance of the world in general. that's part an age thing, but also a lack of exposure to the real world, and schools failing. read things. read the news. read books. read old newspapers to see that what people worry about hasn't changed. don't rely on the internet for any truth. or school. or the tv news. think.

 

your ideas are interesting and worthy of thought and consideration. you obviously have input worth listening to.

 

hone your skills and embrace education.

 

and work hard. success is earned.

 

and never belittle yourself. for you it is self destructive. for us it is tiresome. be strong, stand tall.

 

AND TIDY YOUR ROOM!!!!! ha ha ha

I've never been against it, Rick was but after I redesigned ISS making the need more obvious and made a mockup of unobtrusive food water bars he finally conceded.

That is, if we get back food and water bars - we should Thank You for this? :)

 

....soooo what else don't we know about You? :)

I've been wanting to know - which of You guys developed graphics for the old GUI that was before A13?

Integrated Survival System, f.e. the health and stamina system. Its getting changed so your not constantly bandaging micro damage to max health, but rather will receive more significant hits that have a debuff attached to them, and require a specific treatment.

 

I love it

That could be the basis of a great bug report. Hint hint :cocksure:
