Feel like the zombies are destroying EVERYTHING you build!? Worry no more! This series shows exactly how to build a zombie proof fortress :D

What amazing structures have you guys built to keep the zombies out? :D

watching these videos made me want to punch a kitten. to anyone new to game this is a horrid way to go about building a base , spend a few days gathering goods like metal, food, water and guns before securing a building and setting up mine . also light outside structure you fort in so zombies do less damage, light slows zombies and decreases their damage done. they are rather funny otherwise.

Cute. I always enjoy the frantic 1st day scavenger hunt.

Thanks Brumby for enjoying our video so much :D

We played new games a few times and tried the 'just grab everything and build a shelter later' approach and it just didn't work for us. We found that style boring as you'd have to sit out the nights rather than mine. We found that building a super fortress suited us and we had fun - which is the point of gaming right? ;P I agree with the lack of torches, we forgot to put them outside but we do mention it and then put them out there later.

Thanks for watching and giving feedback :D Keep those kittens safe :D

You 2 had a lot fun with your approach and that's ultimately what matters.

mining first night and forting a place are not bad ideas I do it myself if I have a partner to help, often I'm solo even in a multiplayer game so I gotta watch my ass at night and cannot really get serious about mining . I also like to build well defended/ defendable bases, just think you should get some mats and supplies first day and not worry overly much about first nights wait , also if you drop a bag and use a club as only belt item , a well lit fighting area you can score mad loot from the waves of zombies and it's kinda frantic and really fun way to pass the night.

Thank you so much :3

Clearly we smelt so good the zombies just couldn't help themselves but claw their way in haha. There will be more videos uploaded showing the progress of the castle by the end of the week so I'll keep y'all updated :D

Check out the castle update!! :D

We've built some underground dungeon style rooms and a trench which lets you loot hordes of zombies each night without wasting ammo or taking damage!

Wow your castles are amazing!

I've been to Dover Castle many times so it was nice to see it in game form :) Do you create your castles without zombies turned on? How long does it take you to build them? :)

Hi,

in the previous alphas you couldn't switch off the zombies so they were quite a nuisance...
Dover castle took about 10 hours, Minas Morgul about 10, Caernarfon 20+, Notre Dame about 15 hours. The touch-up i recently did on Caernarfon was about another 8 hours

Our Castle is finished! Now including towering rooftops, defensive moat and hearty farms! Looks like we've hired some zombies to be our guardsmen too XD
