    To answer your question, personally, I find 90 FOV eliminates my nausea, and it doesn't have extreme fisheye. In fact, it looks pretty damn sexy.

    FOV setting, it would seem I cannot change it via console command before joining and have it saved. It says it set it to 90 but when I took pictures for side by side comparison of various FOV settings I noticed nothing had changed. Did they lock FOV on dedicated servers in A18 now???

    Spoiler: 


    EDIT: Just tried on single player. I think I have my FOV locked at 90. I guess what I was thinking would work, works and I had already done it and forgot lol. will test further but still wanting to know if its locked on dedicated servers to default setting in A18

    Agree, it also gives a reason to explore and find other biomes.

    Needs/Desires are paramount to having a long good game IMO.

    The real reason is that it would be a can of worms to have pistol users get almost 2x the amount of loot chances. That would be silly.
    Or small safes would drop only parts/ammo, no weapons ever, and that would be boring.
    You see his recent vehicle elevator. That was amazeballs. May copy that in a future build. Or use it as some type of fun trap...😂

    You checked that they could be crafted but can they be placed?

    @madmole Hm... regarding the agility and melee weapons. I think why it feels so weak is primarily due the extreme differences in weapon damage, stamina cost, and durability. Comparing a hunting knife of quality 5 vs a machete of same quality.
    Hunting knife:
    Damage (basic attack): 8
    Power attack damge: 28
    Stamina cost: 5
    Attacks/ Minute: 120

    VS

    Machete same quality of 5
    Damage basic attack: 26
    Power attack damage: 45
    Stamina cost: 12
    Attacks/ Minute: 55

    It's no wonder why the rank 1 and rank 2 melee for agility feels lacklustre. Essentially, if you want full potential you pretty much need a machete or just rely on the bleeding effect. Though, on the other hand once Alpha 18.2 comes out we shall see if it still needs another pass, as the knives are being buffed with a speed debuff as well.

    As for the spears? Why not also allow them to penetrate zombies, considering that perception really is all about that trait.

    A18.1 I play solo games, I like the jack of all trades no specific build. day 40 something with 300% xp and nerd glasses, have 3 points in lucky looter, have inventories worth of stuff, can't seem to get the xp up quick enough to allocate points to be able to build gear or weapons better than what I can loot. So now all the looting seems pointless and grindy to just get bullets and random books.
    So I ditched that save game, new game, 1 in lucky looter to avoid forever loot times, balancing between looting and crafting seems to be way better, although looting still supersedes crafting. My thoughts, speed up looting to level 1 lucky looter equivalent and ditch the perk or change what it does. And maybe weapon and gear crafting gets better as you craft, a learn by doing thingy, eg 1st pistol craft level 1, 2nd one level 2 etc
    I tried a game where I didn't use any weapon I looted I scraped them and used crafted only, was challenging and not bad game play either.
    Oh and the springs man, chain mod needs 10 springs, this needs 10 springs that needs 10 springs, want to hammer a bunch of nails at the end of your baseball bat, that'll take 10 springs to do that.
    note:still absolutely love the game

    Bleeds should not be that bad. I fixed that months ago when I was playing agility. Bleeds do tick twice a second, but at 10% of the chance, so at nomad difficulty (30% rage) you get a 6% per second chance, which would be an average of raging every 16 seconds.

    There is VRAM on the video card and system RAM on the motherboard. If a texture is accessed from system RAM by the video card, it will be slower than if it was in VRAM. It is much worse if it is frequently accessed textures like the terrain textures.
