Hey guys! I'm from the console crowd and have just recently procured a good enough laptop to run the PC (definitely superior) version.

Totally loving it & can't wait to dive into Alpha 19. 

So did I see correctly and they are changing the stripper zombie!!??

NOOOOO!!! Censorship sucks!! Leave in the boobies!!

I think the fps animation is due for a revamp. I'm talking about the the sprint mostly. Also speeding up and not having as much weapon inertia so it doesn't have that floaty delay thing going on would be nice. I feel like the developers are working around those problems because they can't work on it as easily as they can weapon reload animations. Please can you guys work on sprinting and good weapon movements.

 

Sprinting: tucking the weapon near the rest 

 

Weapon movement: get rid of the floaty hands by making it quicker and less inertia. Make the guns slightly lean into the direction you're aiming in.

Why does half of the forum suddenly consists of deleted posts from MechanicalLens?

Well, at least its better than half the forum consisting of posts from MechanicaLens that ARENT deleted.

 

;) I jest.

Since we are on the topic of Nerd Polling, has there been any discussion about players "double looting" quest POI's? Players will get a quest to go to a certain building, loot it and then turn around and activate their quest, which resets the building immediately which allows the to loot it again.

Shhhh, don't tell em, they might think before they type now 😅

Hey smartass! Come down from your high horse and mingle with us mortals! 😡

 

I did start reading in the edits but after a while it became tedious.

I was asking WHY they were deleted, not how to read them.

 

If it's a forum bug or a moderation abuse I'd like to know, if you don't mind that is... *smh*

I don’t consider this a problem as you still have to decide if you even have time to do both. Second, if you already looted the building prior to the quest or you are on a repeat quest isn’t that essentially the same thing?

@TFPS 
Been a huge fan of this game for years and am always drag new people into it.
Would you be down to increase roamer spawn and roaming hoards a bit or otherwise eventually implement a world gen option to control those parameters? Roamers made the game more intense and interesting to me in earlier builds. Nowadays I find every update I dive into the txt files to increase roam spawns. Cheers!

I think it would be so awesome if they did more models like what they did for the clubs (e.g. spiked/barb wire etc.) But for other weapon types.  Soooo much more immersive. 😎👍

 

Edit: The new wooden club with a barbed wire / chain / spikes mod on it looked so Fing badass!

 

Looks like something snowdog would use...😏

Is Prime's face merged with the model or is it a mod? Cool!

Jonah Birch who I don't think even knew about this current nerd pole discussion is streaming and doing a permadeath no cheese challenge. No nerd poling or building things to cheat the zombies or the loot.

Yes. Madmole talked about it and uses this. I asked him about it being an exploit but he did not agree.

WTF is "nerd polling"!

 

 

well i got me in-game!

Nerd polling is when a player builds a tower or poll of blocks right under there feet, literally. 

They jump up, place the block and land on top of it. then repeat this step.  It's done to reach higher places and other things.

Usually there are lots of POIs around in a typical town. Instead of double-dipping you could as well loot one of the neighborhood POIs for somewhat the same effect.

 

It does make a difference on densely populated servers, but anything above 8 on a server is outside of what TFP has to balance and needs to be dealt with by the server owner himself. If such an owner even wants to change anything, double dipping makes sure people still have lootable POIs on those servers, its more like a feature than a bug.

I wonder how hard it would bhe for them to just implement it. would be so cool!

 

It would be amazing, yes!, but I guess they don't want to spend more time on adding trivial stuff, they have bandits to make yet...

Maybe the forums should automatically add an -IMO as a signature to all posts so we dont have to have people waste their time pointing it out on posts they dont agree with?

 

-IMO

That's your opinion. I mean, yes. They should add IMO, IMO.
