    You know some reactions come just at the right time, some others come late. Reactions have points that can be hit or miss. Your reaction not only came late, but it was a complete miss.

    It's a miss because while I'm pretty sure you picked the bandits as an example just because it's probably one of the easiest alternatives of NPCs to implement at the moment since the player doesn't need to interact with them like they might want to do with friendly survivor NPCs and therefore it's enough to just enable them through xml, their current code is still pretty basic and would have been much better if they had some extra code to make them smarter which as far as I know is impossible to do in xml alone, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    But your reaction is a miss also because bandits aren't the only NPCs that should be running in the world. What would I mostly love to see are friendly NPC survivors you could interact with and who would actually be doing something more than just standing in one place all day. Again, this requires much more advanced code than is currently available in the base game and standard xml just won't cut it, unless you're fine with the very basic version of their AI.

    If you want more, you do need that extra code like the one provided in Starvation mod that improves the AI little bit, although like I said previously while Starvation is already a very impressive mod, it still lacks some features I personally would love to see. Funny as it may be, it seems like Starvation will have to be enough for me.

    By the way, that nuclear powered weapon you talked about suddenly ran out of fuel and fell back where it was launched from.

    I like those guys who always bring up TL;DR version of something they didn't read, thank you.

    You can also enable followers through xml, but that isn't even what we're talking about.

    Says the guy whose post I quoted started with the phrase "You sure know it all." to someone that was just trying to explain the difference between modding and actual game development.

    I would rather call Roland: "Secret Santa of A17... and beyond!"

    Aldranon: "Whats this?? 7 days to die is updating to A17 now!! OH! God bless you Secret Santa of A17 and beyond! God bless you very much!"

    No one would know I'm playing A17 RIGHT NOW! Nope. Might even ask is it ready yet, to throw you all off. Yep.


    Oops! Sooo, is A17 ready yet? Yeah...

    That is a cool concept. The law of physics indicates that particular copter would spin out of control soon as taking off and would never reach that altitude. Guess we could suspend basic laws of physics.

    The zombies are all about suspending the basic laws of physics they voted overwhelmingly for its inclusion because they are very partial to tenderised meat.
