    Question What happened to the increased difficulty?

    After the Update I thought I could continue with my normal game. However I do not know if by mistake of the game or the physics, I was building an 8X8 floor with columns in the 4 corners. When putting the last floor block came all down destroying my forge, safety boxes and others just missing 4 hours for horde.
    I preferred to start a new game, because I knew I could not overcome that horde and I lost the materials and so on.

    I started a new game and "Surprise" now YES the trader's mission comes out. I was happy because before I did not go out, and when I walk to the vendor "a wild bear appears" out of nowhere. In my face, it falls from the sky beside me and begins to kill me, when I was just level 1 and just beginning.

    All right. I'm dying. I reappear near the backpack and decide to go for my things but with the bear's care. When I'm on my way, passing through a forest I get a mini horde of dogs. 7 dogs begin to chase me, bite me and kill me in LEVEL 1.

    I preferred to start a new game. A new map was already 2 deaths.

    in the new map, I appear in a snow zone, (rare, you usually appear in burned areas), I'm in the wood harvesting and that to make my first bow and arrows, (mini-missions) and that I get 1 zombie bear and 3 woodcutters to kill me ...


    What the hell happened to the difficulty now? (The one of the snow I lowered the difficulty to the minimum of scavenger)

    Just sounds like horrible luck mate. The lumberjacks are always in the snow, no matter your level, but the bears are definitely bad luck ! I either don't see any for a while, or I have 3 of them roaming around the town I'm in.

    Try not to travel very far in the first hours of the game. Afaik you get some puppy protection (lower spawns) in your starter area at gamestart.

    That's what I do. Stay near the spawn and smash trees down and break rocks when starting a new server. Build a bunch of box frames and get off the ground. High ground is the keys to staying alive. Nickel and dime the zombies. Then once ya got a sniper rifle then go full RAMBO like me. Or dig a tunnel in the early goings.

    Spawning in winter biome isn't rare. It happened to me on my old public server. I built a big tree fort for first base. But burned a lot of wood to stay warm. Was to much work. Seemed like I was gathering wood to stay warm or killing hordes every hour and the hour. If you like exploring day 1. Then find a place like a store that's like 3 stories high.

    Then frame up the ladder to get to it. Or smash the ladder and use frame boxes to elevator yourself up. Best safe bet in the early goings. Zombies love ladders. Get rid of them unless your cement your way around the place as reinforce walls and vault doors and more bars behind the doors.

    Cause I seen a horde eat through a vault door at the book store one time. I didn't keep track of the days. I got stuck staying a horde night at book store with 3 hours to board it up. Lucky I had 1 vault door on me. Then I used the rusty bars on the two doors behind the counter after they broke them down. Used the store counter as a kill house pill box framed in with bars. I went wild.

    Shocked I lived. I had a close call. I was standing on the drink machine behind the counters after they broke in that door from the back. I caught fire from the fire zombie. I was tap dancing around and getting crazy head shots with my sniper rifle. Then ate some cooked meat and drank some water then took a pill then was good. Then framed up the place. Then it was daylight.

    Turn the zombie spawn rate down. Difficulty is mostly just how much damage you do to zombies vs how much they do to you. Lowering the difficulty does not change how many or what kinds spawn.

    wow, ok. I'm never online, only play solo or splitscreen... out of curiosity: that was the first time you joined this particular game?
