Michlo Posted April 24, 2018 Share Posted April 24, 2018 Greetings. I have 522 hours into this game. Obviously, I like it. I just came back recently for another go and I've hit the same point that I (forgot I) hit before and it is really souring my experience. After a lot of effort, I have my base (the farmhouse) rather well defended. I have the top-tier steel spikes around the perimeter and the lower couple of rows of blocks are also the top tier steel. You'd think that would be enough to go and safely explore for a while without having to worry about the base. Nope. Despite the fact that these zombies still only have flesh and blood hands, their slightest touch on steel spikes is enough to degrade them. Since, after day 51 (I think I'm at 56 now) hordes are descending every day, I sometimes don't even get to leave as I'm dealing with hordes and then the numerous repairs over and over again. Often, I'm just about finishing up with one horde of about thirty when another rolls right up! And WHY am I suddenly having sleepers spring into being inside the farmhouse WHERE I LIVE? How could they possibly get in? I know you want us to have challenges but when we get all the way to steel we should be able to have a break to go and do something else, explore or create another project, without having to worry that our base is being destroyed. It should take hundreds of zombies before there is the slightest scratch on steel! So, my questions are: will the integrity of higher tier materials ever be addressed? Will we be given a point to aim for where we can finally relax a little? Is this a bug with the sleepers? It seems to happen if I close the two main doors (I don't always). Is endless hordes after a certain day a known mechanic? I only have two forges, one in the attic and one in my mine area at bedrock so surely that isn't enough to draw them. I want to keep playing this game but NOT as a janitor. Cheers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
