    That won't help me if the intention is to change the xml tomorrow. What we need is Madmole's answer on the intention....or Gazz's answer about his task list

    In that video, they only did 500 block explosion damage. It got buffed after the video. If it was buffed before the video then MM's base would have been gone as several of them exploded inside his main room with all his crafting tables and storage.

    I'm eagerly awaiting A18 to find defenses against this new zombie. At the same time I'm hoping that my fears and concerns are misplaced but only time will tell when we can try it out ourselves.
    If I remember correctly they mostly just entered the base room by the door because MM was opening it again and again to shoot through. Also MM had a second room he could have retreated too. And we all know this base is rather underdeveloped for an end-game horde base, what does it tell us if it gets wrecked?

    By the way, it seems they have been constantly balancing the spawn probability of the demolisher, first there were ~8, then none, and now 1-2. Sure, it could just be random variation, but balancing is one of the reasons MM plays the game, so it's quite probable

    But it doesn't really matter who is right, the block damage of that zombie makes sure he will immediately have anyones attention whenever he turns up. But that is his purpose in life, he's is a designated "endboss", he isn't supposed to be easy.

    So no one is watching "White Zombie" circa 1932. probably the first movie about zombies.

    Original Dawn of the Dead was the best zombie movie ever... the one set at the shopping mall. Its the one that got me thinking about how I would build MY base in a zombie outbreak. Now with this game I can actually build it.

    Guys, there is too much worry about enemies like Demolishers. Thanks to Conventional Ralston many people who would've had an issue won't have an issue.
    Ok, so I misremembered. But I assume they upped the hitpoints of the blocks accordingly to not change the balance.

    Ralston is the hotel, unlimited stealth on horde night or an option for zombies not to dig?

    I also wonder how the players will do that, prefer the melee bases.
    Would you use a firearm to trigger the explosion?

    A melee base player will have to move temporarily when the demolisher is coming and deal with him before returning to melee. Or have more than one space from which to melee. Redundancy always helps.

    Bela Lugosi? Never heard of her! :-)

    White zombie is officially the first movie with a zombie in. The first book with a zombie apocalypse is debatable though.
