    @Kinyajuu
    Thanks a lot for the News and Updates you made in the last Days. It feels good to get some new informations.

    The Buff System sounds awesome, the Potential behind it is simply stunning.
    I really hope you go deep into diversity and depth with that system.

    Not speaking of the extreme ones like vampire Guns or Granatespamming sledgehammers.

    But for example different Kinds of +/- Mods for Weapons.

    Example:
    Adds more Firepower, creates bigger Recoil
    Adds less Recoil, takes away Firerate.

    Such things. it would really make it an interesting System that would provide lots Effort to "master" ingame and thus keeping us busy

    Keep up the Good work.

    Maybe for a reason.

    P.S. After so much good info on the new weapon system I hope that speculations and complains will stop. We had more than enough info to understand all is gonna be better. I repeat - all of it.

    Oh, wow... I was going for 30 minutes. I figured he could do whatever he needed in that time. 30 hours is a bit excessive.

    as Arnold would say...
    "whut you talk'n bout?"

    LOL you know this is normal everyday behavior. you been around long enough to see the pattern and see the men with white straight jackets on the loose.

    always be speculations and complainers (game sells are falling or should have been done by now and not enough spawns, too many spawns , no lasers or rockets to the moon etc....)

    then there is hype and hysteria because someone heard something therefore the world is ending

    devs come out and share some goodies and then speculations are tripled and the questions

    then there is of course.... When will a?? be officially released for experimental so we can test it before everyone else

    and then the... When will a?? bugs be fixed cuz i cant test it while its broke...

    last but not least... havent seen or heard from a dev in 5 minutes,,, did they take the money and run?


    so yeah, its just another normal day in forum paradise... LMAO but its all the fault of the pimps for making a damn interesting game regardless of the complaints. without them we wouldnt have this forum to watch the wheels go round and rounddddd

    I'm happy about the news. I can't wait to play around with modding some of the new stuff

    All you are hearing seems to be "removal of gun parts". Well think of it this way, each of those parts were basically a limited version of what mods are. The new mod system even uses the old assembly screen.

    Only one actual item ID in the xml has to be used for all item mods. The mods are stored in another xml file and have an upper limit of 32,000(ish) possible mods. In the old gun system a pistol could only have a single item assigned as it's "barrel"

    Now, using tagging and mods, a pistol COULD have 50 different types of barrels. All that do various things aside from editing the same set of stats. One could add damage and take away magazine size; One could have less damage but give you 1hp per shot when you hit an entity; One could give you any level in any skill for a specified time after a kill. 3 off the top of my head that are possible in the new mod system, and that's just scratching the surface..

    The limited nature of gun "parts" evolved into a mod system that can now work on any item in the game, not just tools and weapons. The new system can mimic the old system exactly if that is the desire, but, it can also do much much more.
    BOOM! And like that Kin makes a believer out of me. Love how this sounds and thank you for taking the time to clarify it a bit more. My head was definitely somewhere else.

    This sounds VERY exciting, especially for modding potential.

    If I'm understanding this correctly you will be able to put a healing buff onto your weapon and use it to heal people? Really that is the stupidest thing ever.
    I am hoping I am wrong....please don't say ..just don't use that buff in game on your weapon.
    I am hoping that the mods for weapons are legit actual attachments. Like scopes, duckbills, extended mags and semi auto from single shot for rifle for example.
    Please don't put in unrealistic stupid mods and make it an arcade game. That would ruin the game.
    I would stop playing the game...that reminds me of COD when they added those dumbass buffs in black ops...never played a COD game again.

    Please keep the realism of actual real life items.

    Ouch
    I can see if someone was shooting another player with just a regular bullet then it doesn't make sense but I have seen mods that have tranquilizer guns. Even in vanilla game you can cure the infection with honey...honey...I mean someone out there must have figured out what is in honey that cures and extracted it to use in a tranq dart. So why couldn't you shoot that at a buddy and cure him.
    Now curing a broken leg with a dart...that wouldn't make sense.

    I'm puzzled by how you came to your assumptions that made you think it's going to be worse then current "gun parts" in the first place.

    I`ve always liked your point of view. Complaining moves the progress bar ahead and ahead, braking records. A dev said once even they didn`t think game will go too far, but here you go. Cant wait for new stuff too, new bugs and glitches are welcome. When ready. Really ready.

    I'm guessing, with the new system, it's possible to vary melee animation/attack speed as well? Any new melee animations coming?

    So could a mod give an item to an enemy hit by the ammo? So maybe have a chance to put your projectile into the inventory of the enemy so when you kill them you can retrieve some of your arrows/bolts/lead bits?

    or more seriously in that subject...could a mod ADD an arrow to the zombies loot table? so you actually have a chance at arrow recovery?
    An idea I'd like to record for posterity. Especially if Posterity's name is Kinyajuu, who is the one who could fulfill that wish

    I'm sorry, I'll try to remember that yesterday so it doesn't happen again before.
