    Immunity to spikes. They go through them like matchsticks.

    Welp, I was going to do a Fetch quest at the Shotgun Messiah Factory. Turns out, the Satchel was ten steps into the place. XD

    Edit: Easiest quest ever. I completed it in under 15 seconds.

    There are many little changes, but the major ones that come to mind are the zombie speed boost randomly when taking damage, sleeper volume trigger improvements and player breadcrumbs that AI now use to follow.

    I'm open to grandpa's crafting elixer that randomizes player crafting stats while your on it, so you might craft a dud or a nice one.
    I should have finished my thought. It could look like a perk that once had, the player could craft a special part that when used provides a chance to "crit" when crafting an item.

    However, the Grandpa's elixir route makes more sense for 7 Days and has the same function. I wasn't exactly sure how "gamey" (not intended as a negative) your vision for crafting allowed. It sounds like an enjoyable addition for crafting while leaving room for the best stuff (like the legendaries) to be found only through looting.

    Breadcrumbs? They're in? Any more details on how it works?

    OMG! Well paint me green and call me Kermit!

    I was just about to turn my back on an INT build... until MM said something and then I started thinking...
    I'll have to play the game to get the details and the play style would be completely different than any other...

    BUT there is something powerful there. I don't want to spoil it if I'm right.

    Thanks MM, hope TFP working smoothly on A18, can't wait for the update

    Looking forward on your new looting system, must beat the late-game experience in A17.

    Here are some ideas:
    - super loot, which can only be in an air drop and which cannot be created (super antibiotics or unique enhancing drinks, unique schemes or books, special super cartridges or grenades ...)
    - limited time until the box with loot disappears (did not manage to pick up during the day, the box self-destructs)
    - maybe the plane drops different boxes with different markings, which need to be opened for a long time, like safes (fortified military boxes with ammunition, fortified medical boxes, fortified box with tools and diagrams, and so on)
    - the danger of getting an air drop: zombies, wolves, zombie dogs, zombie bears or bandits at the place where the box falls, which constantly arrive at the point until you pick up the loot, and you have to fight back and try to destroy the box and so on ...
    We already changed it out so they have a chance to drop every major loot group in the game instead of mainly useless food and semi useless drugs.

    On the list for someday is to make npcs/zeds attracted to them so its not just free amazing loot. It works fine for pvp but for sp coop there needs to be bandits/zeds attracted to the drops.

    100% random, so you might find a high damage weapon but it has a small mag, etc.

    The video would clearly be the best way, as you can pause it and read the descriptions of each rank when I moused over them.

    No worries, keep trying.

    Yes, you'll notice my pink goggles in the video, these I dyed pink so I know they are "the good ones". The modded gear icon is a great addition.
