Lukas5577 Posted October 2, 2014 Share Posted October 2, 2014 I was recently watching some The Walking Dead and there were a few interesting things that might fit into this game in my opinion. Zombies only dying by destroying the brain or an infection that turn you into one of them after getting bitten. I think these things would make a really good hardcore mode at least because it would force you to flee or be much more cautious about what you do instead of running with a sledgehammer into a horde mowing them down like nothing. Also becoming a zombie or the need to find a maybe extremely rare cure would add an really interesting touch to the game. Also thing like old tanks, helicopters or just huge car graveyards like seen in the series would make the game look even much more post-apocalyptic as well as maybe more damaged/overgrown buildings and maybe collapsed houses or even skyscraper ruins. In the devblog there was also mentioned something about smell and there is already smell added by flesh in your backpack in the game. What about maybe covering yourself in rotten flesh or twd like in zombie guts to smell like one of them to be able to slowly walk through a horde and hoping for them not to notice you. In my opinion this would make much sense because if you smell like them you should be much harder to detect because they are usually not too smart creatures :) Also running a farm or a camp and having a possibility to find generators and wires or maybe even water pumps and being able to dig a well/water reservoir to store water and pump it through some pipes into your house would be amazing. Over all having some water management instead of filling stacks of glasses with toilet water would add a nice survival touch. Lighting, electric fences and stuff like that would give you more options for safety but would also be problematic because they would constantly drain your fuel. Breeding at least some chickens would be cool too. Additionally heat to keep you warm/dry your clothes up would also add great to a survival feeling if seasons or weather would be added in a way to make you wet/cold and create also a need for fur/warm clothing. Also apart from cars in the future what about maybe riding a horse or even getting a train running to cover some distance into one direction in a short time and finding maybe a major town because tracks should usually lead to bigger cities and not every small village like roads do. Fixing helis or military vehicles would be an idea too but could be really overpowered because if you manage to get the insane amount of fuel a heli or tank consumes you would be close to invulnerable in it and have the ability to gun down a whole village in a few minutes. Over all it's just an collection of ideas mainly inspired by twd. I think some things like electricity might already be mentioned but i wanted to add it nonetheless to this list because it would fit really well in my opinion. It's just my opinion and i really like twd so i would like these elements in a game like this because they would lead to an really interesting gameplay that would be close to the telltale games (at least the fights and the danger by zombies) but in a sandbox like 7dtd you could kind of build your own story/ survival camp with some people. Seeing some of these things as hardcore mode or over all in the game would be really cool or at least maybe an idea to create a mod for people that would like to see things like that in 7dtd. What do you guys think? Would it fit into the game or rather not? At least the fear going out from a horde would be much more massive than it already is like in twd.
