    Fine by me, but it makes it much more difficult for people to collect all the info we have here.
    If only there was someone willing to follow MadMole across the internet and post newly revealed information back here. Where would we find such a man? Who would be willing to do such a thankless task? What brave hero will step from the shadows and save us?

    Find out next week, same bat-time, same bat-channel.

    How long before someone asks if 'very close' means next weekend?

    "Smell is gone it was an abstract that was too hard to communicate in a game"

    I thought it was communicated reasonably well already. Cook bacon: expect visitors if you don't put it away quickly.

    Have a little icon or something next to smelly stuff(and maybe throw one on your HUD in case you miss the first one), maybe put a little simple graphic around you so nearby friends can notice that you smell like hot tasty meat, and we're all set.

    The most awkward thing it seems would be calculating how long it should take for zombies at various ranges to notice the smell.

    It was a nice fairly unique thing about the game. Too bad.

    I feel like that's what it was. How much should xyz smell? How long? How strong through xyz container? How long for that? How strong of smell does a dead zombie have that has deteriorating senses and does the range deteriorate as well? Should it work like vision? Does the smell range deteriorate as it is out longer. And probably many more factors I'm not thinking of off the top of my head. Now with the new buff system, I could see it working better with a modder or maybe they'll put it in since you can have timers and all. But it'd still seem so simplistic to what smell actually is verses sight. And with how TFP is, at least Joel, he wants things perfect, so if smell can't really be done in a good way that makes sense, then it would be tossed, at least for now (not saying it will ever come back in gold, or whatever). I feel like smell itself could be a 1 man job, lol.

    Seems like he's just bringing up the fact that there's so many negative reviews and that a mod would carry more weight than a random person
    Players write negative reviews based on their opinions of the game, it's progress, their frustration with voicing their opinion in the forum & being Moved or Deleted by Moderators.
    There are other reasons but they do it because they are angry & trying to solve that by going through all the reviews & the Pimp's making comments on them would take up all their time. They got enough problems with what happened with the Unity Update to get XP out than worrying about the Negative Reviews.
    I think Roland's creation of the Locked Dev Thread is a step in the right direction for player info. You don't have to weed through all the negative comments anymore & get the answers from the Pimps without the Peanut Gallery. I suggested he do this a couple weeks ago in another Thread & it's a great improvement for communication. I think this should happen in the Steam Forum too where all the Negativity is & they got the info bit I think an actual link to the Dev Blog would be better.
    Make Players Happy & the Negative Reviews might get changed to the Positive, that's how you fix it, good ole PR.

    I really liked the smell aspect. That certain things would smell more than others and you could make certain foods to either minimize the smell or get rid of it completely. How you could glance at the map and see the effects of the smell, range etc. I miss that added layer.

    Problem is. This is impossible. People who think they are owed something that was never promised to them in the first place CAN'T be satisfied. If you try, they will just choose something else to be pissed about.

    Its as easy as that! Make everyone happy!

    Why cant everyone do that? i mean, its not like players are individuals with their own opinions and what they want in a game. But just flipping the switch from unhappy to happy is all it takes!

    Good-Boi 1 point 9 hours ago
    Is steam workshop support coming for A17 or on full releasetm ?


    [–]JoelHuenink 3 points an hour ago
    If it comes it will be after the full release.
