You can already do plenty of physics defying things.

Not nearly as many as they can..

Like how you "fixed" the slippery slope thing...

Now they can walk across that np...But I can't.. wut?

You've been mentioning those holes a lot lately.
Sounds to me like something's coming down the road.

already here in part.

I was in the "old" fire station, and had a wolf break through the wall block one up from the bottom, and he jumped through that hole..

Awesome, thanks a lot. I want to see how good this can be.

Laz and  I have been using it quite extensively in our prefabs and neither of us is disappointed. (if you use them correctly, they offer greater game play by the different ways to trigger sleepers surprising the players)

This is awesome.
You can actually set things up so that if a player enters a POI through some way you don't want, a harder set of zombies can be spawned.

yep and i even set up hidden zombies behind fake walls that will attack after you think you are clear to proceed. and we can set a sleeper volume up to not be used in a quest just in case you decided to add a deterrent force. (that way they arent part of the quest requirement).

Ah yes, that's good thinking with the quests.
Deactivation of a volume when another volume was triggered would be icing on this cake.

Electric Fences stopped to work and did spark at the fence post sometime during my hordenight... is that a feature? can we get a tooltip? how long does it take to work again?

You have to repair the end post. It wears out.

Any chance there could ever be feral zombie rabbits? I can’t think of anything more terrifying at night.

I think it comes down to more then you want to beable to cheese the game so it should be left, their are difficulties that are easier, pretty sure you could just turn the zeds off in the xml if you wanted. You already have zeds lined up on a conveyor for those that want to exploit that way. Its a survival game and should be treated as such. The company integrity as a game producer in question how about? Begs the question of what the next game will be like if they are willing to leave things like that. Don't think leaving exploits in was part of the kickstarter goals do you? What other survival game would just leave exploits in because someone wants to play less then casual?

You’ve completely missed the point. I’m sorry you failed reading and comprehension. You poor poor boy

No, I will never acknowledge using exploits as a game style, this is literally backwards thinking you poor lady. Its one thing to use them while the game is still broken but its something completely different to expect them to stay that way for the sake of the way you play. Especially at the expense of what I have already stated. I'm sorry if you fail to comprehend how a game is actually supposed to be played.

I think it would be neat if the traders offered a special quest to find a series of items, basically multiple places you have to go to, can even have digging quests, once this long quest is done you get yourself either a legendary item, or a part of the legendary item for them to craft for u later, that could be a neat incentive

The problem is that some of the things you label as exploits aren’t labeled as exploits by literally anyone else...

 

I respect your high standards but you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.

Is this a contest? The zombies were just telling me the other day that players can harvest and carry massive amounts of stuff, then magically build these huge bases. They want you nerfed.

 

I can walk across it just fine other than some sliding down.

The zombies talk to you now? I’ve been trying to reach that level for years.

more AI exploit:

 

 

No matter how complex the AI is, there will always be exploits.

Do a simple and effective AI.

Sorry @Rolandbut that is an exploit, no if and or buts about it. Yes I have a high standard and wish TFP did too but this isn't debatable, thats literally game braking.

That's The Hopping Dead Season 1
or maybe it's just a test for the feral rabbits someone wanted.

That is just a stupid bug with ladders. Ladders don't work that great in general, even for the player. I already put it on my todo list.

And I’m sorry you can’t grasp the concept of having multiple game play styles, that arnt your way or the highway. You poor baby. The sheer thought of others playing a open world any other way than the way you dictact it to be, must be absolutely horrifying for you.

Please tell me you aren't trying to insinuate that you care more about the game than TFP.....

You must be late to the party. I've wanted everything better for this game, I give TFP #$%^ for the choices they have made that I believe are detrimental like candy over the skeleton key or a parachute, tower defense pathing, pretty much anything that takes away from realism and emersion, the problems with the all powerful frame, issues with pvp they don't want to bother worrying about till later, rules and balance ect. I even asked to be a tester back in A16 but got passed over. I don't want it to stray any further from what would make it a good game if I can help it. That includes pointing out exploits and bugs that you guys seems to want to try and keep so you can not play the game right and trying to sway 'the vision' if I can to what I believe with my knowledge as a life time gamer to make it better.

MM shuts me down all the time though.
