    Someone else might call that risk and reward.

    Nice. I'm interested. Does he already have a name for the mod?

    The mailbox in front of the house could be the trigger... Maybe?

    Wasn’t it once the case that the Wights could resurrect zombies? I’m not sure... but they do seem out of place at the moment. It feels like they should be special.

    It has previously been requested that we can actually see the limbs of the zeds when dismembering.

    Perhaps two birds with one stone? The limbs fly off, the Wights turn them into those Little Thing-like creatures. I imagine three or four versions. The arm creature, the leg creature, the torso creature, the head creature. Probably wouldn’t matter if they all shared the same pathing, damage, health etc.
    Could extend it further though... cop head creature still spits... screamer head creature still screams.

    Not all POI's have mailboxes. :P

    And besides, what if you had destroyed the mailbox?

    No offense, but I think your suggestions have reached rock bottom. :P

I agree that it just humming would not cause as much heat as it being fired in short bursts, but either use should cause heat in the very least...
    This could be the case. I mine a lot of iron with the auger.

    In general, it is not a big problem for me. I just have to watch out where I use the auger.
    But a mod to reduce noise and heat generated by the auger would be a nice. Maybe as a rare or legendary item.

My AK is amazing so its like whatever, one for you, one for you, oh two for you, one for you, etc.
    lol, great comment

    Wait, trash pandas. Raccoons, even possum, should be everywhere, at least at night. Maybe they don't attack(unless zombied) but would make noise to attract Z if you messed with them. Not a bad extra night hazard I think. Ha, with coons it would be hard to tell which ones were even zombies, feisty little things. Just realizing there are many realistic options left as far as believable animal types you can add. Just please no more giant bugs or silly stuff like that, no need and makes no sense biologically unless this were the Permian era or something, those seriously broke my immersion, there should be more than enough real world options to choose from that could be had fun with.

    this sounds creepy and amazing .

    That rates about a 10/10 on my joygasm meter.

    Yeah, it does. I could tell since this "conversation" got off to a rocky start.

    Now if you'll please excuse me, I'm going to do some tests in an A17 creative test world while listening to some rock and roll.

    @MM, will you ever consider enhancing the quest system to be less immersion breaking (arcade style)?

    (example, POI reset will happen off screen like zombie spawn, not in your face after you just finished clearing up the place, quest start via use of some new UI, and not by a huge yellow "!" object in the world, etc)
    I can easily see why supporting MP make this harder to design and implement in the way i am suggesting, but was this really the best solution you can find? its fine for demonstrating a WIP concept as place holder, but since it don't fit the style of the rest of the game i would say for me at least it is non ship-able. it kinda ruin my immersion which i highly value in your game. hope you will keep it in mind and mb eventually find a better way to do it that is more immersion friendly.
    I used twice the ammo, so why not get twice the reward?

    We'll probably address it at some point, but its not a big deal since you have the same risk either way. Doing it the first time doesn't get you the quest reward.
