    Yeah if I used earbuds then the in game audio wouldn't be picked up on my desk mic I also use for skype.

There are multiple places that have giant pillar sized rolls of material that can be harvested for significant amounts of paper. Like each block can be 100+ paper.


    I always bash literally everything to make sure I know what I can potentially harvest from it :P. It's why I started pickaxing the fully stone and fully metal sinks as well as any faucet I see. Free iron pipes from the sinks and free iron/brass from faucets after you scap them. Showerheads too to scrap into iron. The toliet factory as part of the 3 building dungeon crawl is one of my favorite POIs because I always get a good amount of brass/iron from it along with cement/cobblestones from another building scooping the bags with a shovel.

    You won't get enough paper for a shotgun turret base defense by looting this way. Of course, I'm talking about mid/late hordes. In A16, for example, I needed 3 ~ 3.5K shotgun shells, so imagine getting the necessary paper: you won't do anything, but looking for paper everywhere. Yes, I could craft it from bones, but I'm saving it for duct tape.

    Thanks Faatal, it is already solved, @ZombieSurvivor helped me solve it, I had a problem with the anisotropic filter of nvidia, it was running at x2 and I put it manually at x16 and it worked correctly, in the same way I thank you for the help

    Thanks! Cubilla's debut was in Peñarol (my team) I didn't saw him play though...I'm too young lol

    I disagree its crap, I can one shot about anyone with 2 taps to the face with my crappy q2 one.
    I must agree. Usually, I'm very picky with guns in this game, but I confess that the shotty was surprisingly effective, even at low level.

    But I do have my Day 34 defense. After the brown alert of the last horde night I went into full on farm/prep mode for the next one an I think I overprepared lol. It was a massacre.. I also did adapt what another forum poster was saying and used 4 junk turrets. That way while I was reloading 2 the other two would be firing. Of course, this means I'm even more of a reload $*#&$ than ever and I barely had time to fire more than a few clips of AK ammo.

    Nonetheless, the 2 auto turrets + 3 shotgun turrets + 2 blade traps + 2 electrical fences are what did 90% of the work. I think the Junk turrets were there mainly to make me feel like I was useful. "I'm helping!" lol. I could have potentially AFK'd this defense since the blade traps had taken hardly any damage and the electric fences were both still healthy once the night was finished....electrical turrets still had plenty of ammo too.

    This is why I say you can overcome basically any challenge in this game via controlled pulls or farm. Controlled pulls for POIs and sheer amounts of farming power for horde nights. Farm + well built base > player skill lol. At least until demolishers come knocking on my door. I'm pretty scared they are gonna boom on me.
    At work so couldn't watch it all, but man that looked awesome. Great setup! 😅 engineering for the win!!!!!

    Olimpia and Peñarol two great teams of America, the first final of the liberating cup, we lost it when Cubilla scores the winning goal, years later he gives us two other liberating cups, "El Negro Cubilla is great" I'm not very old but I read a lot and watch videos and news, it is in my plans to be a sports journalist.

    (Español)

    Olimpia y Peñarol dos grandes equipos de America, la primera final de la copa libertadores, la perdimos cuando Cubilla anota el gol del triunfo, años mas tarde el nos da otras dos copas libertadores, "El Negro Cubilla es grande" yo no soy muy viejo pero leo mucho y veo videos y noticias, esta en mis planes ser periodista deportivo.

    At least I can save more repair kits now. I was using them to polish up guns before selling them but there is no question now what the right choice should be. Always scrap guns.
    This apply to all tiers? I know the higher ones net more dukes but havent crunched the numbers yet.

    Compared to guns and ammo it seems like an unnecessary nerf.
    On a 2 players game, we got over 350 x 9mm bullets by day 2 (we were mostly looting POIs). While finding almost no feathers around.

    No...I didn't think it through. Looks like only tier one is blatantly better to scrap instead of repairing and selling.

    Maybe people will just think there was a DP after my name for that post....

    Your poor scheduling doesn't constitute an emergency for us. Sorry for the 37 second wait.

    I would do what faatal recommended. He knows what the code is that governs this stuff, I do not. I would have told you to do the same thing faatal is telling you now on top of the AF fix but I forgot about this last night.

    Edit: Damn AF 16x, highest I would have gone is 8x lol.
