    also, been drawing 7dtd fanart for the past couple days in addition to my scarecrow character for inktober and not sure where I can post it on this forum so the general megathread is as good as place as any really.

In the walking dead no one zombie stands out, they are all kind of the same and that is how I want our hordes to be. We could save memory and performance doing this as we could instantiate more of the same model.


    At a minimum maybe we will just cover the existing zeds in more dirt and blood and desaturate their clothing further. But I'd rather make some special blood moon zeds for this, like these are the crazy ones that only come out once a week on blood moons, and that explains their ability to know where players are.
    To further comment on AtomicUS post about this long talked ago about topic, is this still in the cards? Just caught up on Walking Dead and man those Oceanside zeds looked creepy as f. I would totally be down with Wandering Hordes and Blood Moons full of about 2-5 different models of lower rez art of mud soaked rotting walkers. Especially if it means both better performance and the possibility of more being added to their groups.

    I love the ones we have now but if those were given more abilities, or even just have higher HP i could 100 percent get behind hordes of these rotters. I LOVE their look too so the more grimier and skeletal looking the better. Sorry for off topicing you MM.

    Since the generated worlds are stored in your personal space it shouldn't matter.

    If you had PersistentPlayerProfiles true then I don't have a better idea than using the dedicated ONLY for generating the world, not playing. Also this doesn't sound like intended behaviour and you could file a bug report.

    Am I reading this right - we now have Bullet Proof Zombies and you need AP to take them out ?

    That's a big negative if true.

    we do not have bullet proof zombies... you just need AP for better armor penetration against some of them.


    like... dont throw rocks at a tank if you have a rocket to even up the fight.

    Which zombies exactly are armored? Just soldiers, bikers, and utility guys?

    So it works literally as it should then. Normal ammo can take it out but it takes a lot more of it so get working. AP takes it out faster. Sounds good to me. AP rounds were useless in 17 because they were overkill. Now they are just right and can help win a fight.

    I currently have 30,000 coal sitting in storage. All I need is a boat load more nitrate, and brass. (I have no need to worry about lead; I have about 50k worth in several veins I found, sitting there, yet to be mined.)

    Currently I am sitting at 3,500 7.62 ammo. I'll be spending the next week doing pretty much nothing but car wrenching sessions/brass loot runs. The zombies barely touched my base, only managing to destroy one block, so my base is surely secure for day 28. It's ammo that's my biggest concern right now.
    With a slowed down day cycle of 90 minutes that means your hordes will physically go on 1.5x longer too, once the numbers are enough.

    Yeah seems like we have a similar function already when you aim a turret so it wouldn't be too hard probably.
