Every single time. Without some algorithm determining whether or not a specific mag extended will add 1, 3, or 6 to a pistol. It should hold what it holds, not ".8" of a round.

 

I'll just attach that to my spike club and hit them 1.8 times per swing! Its OP, but I'm doing it! :)

All I'll say is that A17 will end the #hungerandthirstbargate once and for all... :)

Hahahaha! You can be such an optimist.

It will only be round 2.

You can swing it more often without reloading.

That's simply how it works.

 

If you install it in a club with a 3 swing magazine... again: Learn to math!

Make some zeds hit more often quicker and others that don't. You would be surprised how just little things like that can throw you off your game and make it more challenging because their attack sequence is unpredictable and you just won't know till you engage.

 

Unless we get a cool new bar that shows the attack speed of each zombie you hover over.... ;-)

The rotten food inside the fridges looks frigging cool, though.

 

How cool would it be if the door opened?

I get your point, I wasn't even intending on showing it, its just something that went in recently and we haven't even discussed all the show/hide rules yet and decided on anything final. Like I'm pretty sure we won't show on non hostiles or targets you haven't even engaged yet, or sleepers.

 

An option in the menu to hide/show different HUD elements would be ideal. Some did state that they like the idea of the enemy HP bar. :)

 

Then I can turn EVERYTHING off and others can just turn this or that off or on.

Like blocks that change state? Did we have those before zombie corpses to gore blocks? (although not sure if a zombie corpse is a block per se) It could be done for cupboards when looted i guess, maybe?

That's so true. When an enemy is predictable, it's easy to just come up with a formula to completely adapt to their attacks.

 

Unpredictability means surprise. Surprise means senseless actions. Senseless actions mean mistakes. Mistakes mean death.

They are going to add that right under the big red bar for you and make it twice as high.

...what universe is this? Wizardry!

 

In the multiverse everything happens at least once. I bet it will happen again at some point. :)

 

But first I need to find something to agree on with Anabella besides your creep factor....

Behemoth needs so many special considerations because he's the size of a house. We can do "man sized" bosses easily.

 

Is the concept of a larger mutant zombie dead or is it just that particular concept?

Well I was partly joking. It WOULD be awesome if they can keep it from becoming a new dupe source. :)

^^ To show it unintended was maybe a good thing, so you can take it in your considerations. Thanks for clearifying.

And as i said everything else i perceived look amazing.

I was always on board with selectable options for HUD. That is way easier than modding everything invisible.

I want my refrigerator to follow me around... Just in case I need a beer or someone to calculate one of my weapons attachments.

As proven with this video, people flip out to see unfinished stuff, like the enemy health bar.

 

Most of the commentary on the health bar has been constructive feedback, with one or two exceptions.

 

Even if I didn't know what a radioactive cop was capable of, after he took a few 7.62 rounds to the head without dying, I'd start questioning the feasibility of taking him on.

I'm sorry I said it made me throw up in my mouth. That wasn't constructive. ;)

We're still deciding that. It might be a perk you buy, so its not even there by default. Maybe it will just be for bosses. Originally it was for them because we have these cool group quests you can do, and having a health bar for the big boss is kind of essential in our opinion. Nobody likes a stupid radiated feral that you can't even kill because he's regenerating or whatever. We're going to communicate what kind of strengths they have as well with little icons so you know their strengths and weaknesses.

 

Getting it with a perk would be good. Or with an option in along with making the other UI stuff an option. Options make live better and stop people from complaining as much.

I think the zeds should be the main threat for players not the bandits.

 

I agree

 

Unpredictability means surprise. Surprise means senseless actions. Senseless actions mean mistakes. Mistakes mean death.

 

Death means Ressurection. Ressurection menas Transplantation. Transplantation means Unpredictablility. Unpredict...
