    Sounds good. (: The transition between having one or two irradiateds showing up in POI's/horde night one week and then an increase of tenfold the next week may need some fine tuning in the future imo (to add a bit of "middle ground"), but you know best and I look forward to what you have in store.

    (painkillers and some buffs could give a temporary independence of stamina from health)
    Then you have to add an adrenaline rush to the game)

    Now this sounds exciting! 😎 Uppercut then followed by a round house kick ala chuck Norris / Matrix?

    Can we have a thrown spear be replaced with a another from your inventory, it is really inconvenient to have multiple spears in my toolbar, just so I don't have to battle the UI and the zombies at the same time

    Regarding spears: One option would be to just make it stackable or use it like ammo?

    OR: add a mod (chain) for spears to retrieve your spear after throwing it. This would also reduce losing my spears after throwing them in grass or from POI roofs

    Broken arms, Abrasions, deep lacerations, concussions and infection will be delivered via the new crit system and have new unique effects and unique cures. All the new ones will remove 25 max health and heal slowly over time or faster via specific cures, like a broken foot heals faster with a cast.

    A nearly identical system will deliver vehicle damage and critical vehicle damage which would be flat tire (drive slow and hard to control), leaky radiator (drive for a minute or so before overheating), bad battery (random won't start with cool down), bad engine (won't run at all), etc. You'll need those parts to repair it, repair kits for general damage. On screen debuffs when you are in the vehicle. Debuff hyperlink system, click the debuff it opens character stats page and highlights the debuff.

    No more micro damage from small wounds, no more tiny bandage spam, but more meaningful big debuffs to players from combat trauma. You guys wanted survival, its coming.
    Oh yes, this sounds amazing. This will really make you calculate more when exploring, bringing back the challenge in to it.

    Hello.
    I really look forward to the appearance of bandits.
    I ask you to customize the game without zombies, but with gangster settlements in ruined cities. Because the zombie apocalypse is weird. The settlements of bandits after the apocalypse are logical.
    Only without re-spawn. 1 city - 1 settlement of bandits. He killed everyone - new ones do not appear.

    I really like your game. I play Steam for more than 380 hours.

    P.S. I apologize for bad English, I write through Google a translator.

This system solves that, smashing into metal going full speed should give your vehicle a critical injury. Driving over a few things at 100 heath? No, minor damage. You will need probably several heavy impacts to get a critical injury on a player or vehicle, so we'll be fair about it, and yes it will be interesting.

    People who want to lug around all those parts can, but it should be perfectly safe to drive on roads with caution. Unless we change things, just keep a spare vehicle in your pocket, that takes less slots that car parts.
    Maybe adding a mod for a carrying a bicycle (and minibike too? As it is nerved so much that I don't even bother crafting it anymore) on the 4x4 truck? This would also improve the 4x4 truck compared to the motorbike. I never use the 4x4 as the motorbike is superior overall.

    Would be really nice once vehicles can't be picked up (which I hope will be the case in the future)

    Sorry just going to be negative here but not towards TFP just in the voxel view of things. I don't think voxel technology is that far along where I wanna rely on it to no be able to pick my vehicle up. Sure TFP could go another 5 or 6 years and stil be in alpha. Cool we get to keep getting updates but lets be real at some point they have to call the game finished because money doesn't last forever. Just don't see voxel based worlds being far enough ready before they go gold. So maybe next project/game it will be and stuff like this can happen. But as it stands sorry just doesn't add enough to the game vs the out come so personally hope they keep it the way it is and don't put that kind of limit on vehicles to not be able to pick them back up.

    So with critical damage I have to land it safe and sound next to Shamway just to nerdpole my way up.

I got hot and my whole head and upper body turned beat red for a few hours. It just kept doing that every night and I started developing more and more symptoms. Low testosterone was the main culprit, so getting on HRT helped some, but correcting 47 years of eating foods I was allergic to and managing my stress better made all the difference in improving my blood work and now I feel like I'm in my 30's on most days where 5 years ago I felt like I was dying.

    I'd start researching paleo and low carb diets. Read nutrition articles on bodybuilding.com or anywhere that seems reputable. I think Athlean X is pretty good for a youtuber but I don't hear him talk about diet very much. The main thing is to get your carbs from low glycemic fruits and colorful veggies, not pasta or bread, and try to avoid dairy and get allergy testing. Rotate foods every 4 days so if you are allergic to something you minimize the damage. I hope that helps. WIth google you can find info on all this stuff so easy.

    Some people can turn a new leaf and just switch, others it takes time to slowly replace bad habits with good ones so its tolerable. It depends how motivated you are for change but once you are eating clean and proper 80-90% of the time you will start to feel a huge shift.
    Ill pitch in a little bit, because I was doing a lot of research in this regard for my app.

    There is ♥♥♥♥load of information on the internet and that is not neccesseraly a good thing. There are lot of diets, that compete:
    -paleo
    -vegan
    -low-carb
    -keto
    -vegetarian
    -carnivore
    -etc.

    My advice here is, do not subscribe yourself to one diet. You primarely need to listen to your own body - what tastes good, what agrees with your body and what leaves you with sufficient energy. In the end what works for one person might not work for another. There are not only genetic differences between individuals but also differences in your gut microbiomes. You will need to experiment.

    Priorities go as follows:

    1. You need to intake sufficient ammount of energy that covers your basal metabolism and energy expenditure through work, exercise etc. You can easily calculate that on any fittness calculator. I myself thought I ate a lot, whereas I had about 400 calories deficit.
    2. You need to have sufficient intake of macro-nutrients: Carbs, fats and protein. Different diets promote different values for fats and carbs (low carb, high carb, low fat, keto). Most important however is sufficient protein, as those are broken down to amino-acids that are used by your body to build you cells, hormones etc.
    3. You need to have sufficient intake of micronutrients - minerals and vitamins, that acts as catalysts and mediators in many bodily functions. Best solution to this is have very varied diet - different kind of vegetables, fruits, fats, proteins.
    4. Timing - having your food at the same time everyday improves digestion.

    To sum up eat enough of varied quality food, same time every day

    Lastly it is important to pair good diet with exercise, quality sleep, social contact, hobbies and some sort of meaning.

    ps. in regards to gluten and lactoce intolerance is blown out of proportions. They arent the best thing for your body, but if you dont consume too much of it it is fine. You do not need to avoid bread, pasta cheese etc, just downscale it and have more varied diet.

    I played all of A18 and I think even A17 without one incident where I had to pick up a vehicle. I had very few incidents where I had to shovel out a vehicle. And that always worked, I just had to dig a wider circle around to avoid hitting the vehicle on occasion.
