    Don't do it if you don't like it. There will be gatherer quests so if you don't like gathering 100 corn and potatoes, or 5k wood, etc then don't do those either. We want to cater to every play style in quests, not just FPS players.

    I'd it true that every single perk in the game can be got in a schematic?

    If you find a perk schematic but dont have the proper attribute can you still use it?
    No its not true. You can find schematics that mimic a portion of what some perks do, but most of the perks have some other bell and whistle that crafting x doesn't provide.

    There is no such thing as a perk schematic. There are schematics that unlock recipes.

    There are no requirements to read schematics, but workstation gates still apply, so if you find a schematic to craft a chainsaw you still need the workbench and to get the ingredients or meet the requirements to craft the ingredients (like steel, etc)

    Potentially down the road, the worst I can see of not going stealth (and this may be an exaggeration) will be like ignoring the trader. While you can certainly live your 7 Days to Die life without visiting the trader at all, you'll be at a disadvantage for doing so. It wouldn't be large enough to be a cause for concern, but going stealth (especially if you're low on ammo) would be highly recommended vs raiding a POI with the aim of a storm trooper. :P

    There is the quest to requires you to kill chickens with a nail gun. Anyone with a lack of patience or has a tendency to rage is locked out of that quest. :P In all seriousness though, no, and you have a point.

    As long as going stealth isn't the true end-all-be-all, and never will be, I think everyone will be fine.

    You're not the only one. Lol I spent the entire night contemplating on what skill tree to go for in A18. :P Yes, I'm stubborn and indecisive, I admit it. Haha
    Yes its no different than ignoring the buried treasure quests. I do them now because they are a great night time quest to do and I have 42,000 spare clay

    Sniper rifle takes 7.62 in the CLIP and is not single shot. Lol
    Every book perk is unique and the only way to do that.

    Every buyable perk in the game that unlocks a crafting recipe, there is also a schematic out there you can find that lets you craft the same thing, but the schematic won't give you any other perks the perk does, like craft x 10% faster or whatever.

    You are entertaining the notion of tying all loot to zombie kills and not everyone wants to play that way. Stealth is a major feature of the game that would need to be addressed. Stealthing through a POI past all the zombies would have zero value without found loot.
    I just reread your original post. When I first read it, I thought you wanted the loot multiplier triggers to be activated by killing all the zombies in a random sleeper volume, as opposed to just passing through. Stealth would indeed be less legitimatized in both my joke suggestion and my original interpretation of your post, and that is part of why it didn't seem like a good idea.

    A few days ago I found several such instances in localisation. Caliber 44 would be much bigger than what an Iowa class battleship had so a little dot can make quite the difference.

    You are confusing a magazine for a clip. A clip is just a string of bullets that can feed a magazine or "holder of five" or whatever for putting them in easily then you toss the clip. The clip never goes into the gun, its a convenient box is all. All our guns that shoot bullets have mags except the hunting rifle which is single shot.

    actually the books are more interesting to find and read to me than the perks... i tend to forget about spending points...
    That is a great way to die. Perks are where all the true power is.

    yep, my British Lee Enfield 303 uses a striper clip to load 5 rounds through the open bolt. with the optional magazine you could load 10 or two striper clips. you could not load via the magazine but only through the bolt 1 at a time manually or 5 at a time with a stripper clip.

    so I see a mod option for a stripper clip that increases speed loading of the sniper like a bandolier does for other guns

    If you find the schematic and then later buy the perk you will gain the bonus the perk offers even though you already know the recipe.

    Reading a schematic gives you the crafting recipe even if you donít qualify yet for its corresponding perk.
    Obviously this is subjective - but do you find the extra bonuses are enough to make you still want to spend a point on a perk for which you already have recipe part because you've read the schematic?

    Just a wag on my part but huge POIs came to mind when occlusion started being discussed. And another wag makes me think the state data for 'not completed yet' POIs might be managable if it wasn't every POI.

    Say a new massive POI like an international airport were added. There could be a bunch of individual POIs as part of the 'complex', like hangers and parking garages. Those could use current system; reset if player/s leave for 15 seconds. But maybe Terminal 1 & 2 are each larger than the current skyscrapers; those could be a bunch of sections/areas that would maintain state until the entire terminal was completed.
    Back in A12, I used to loot Diersville like it was one huge POI. It would be pretty cool if the town itself was given the dungeon treatment, with some of the houses as optional sub-dungeons, and the hospital as the boss dungeon.
