    Infected Should Be Able To Break Down Doors

    Yeah right. No destructable environment... won't happen
  5. Over the last couple of days, I've made a number of config changes and added some new mods! Increased the range that a player must move in order to allow new zombies to spawn. This will allow players to "clear" an area of zombies and loot it without more zombies magically appearing. Removed food from zombie loot. Reduced chances for backpacks to spawn. Reduced number of farm animals that will spawn. Increased the number of wolves in a pack. Removed backpacks from shipping containers. Barbed wire will only be found in military and industrial areas now Child backpacks can only be found in schools. Combat boots and combat knives added to deer stands. Drybags can no longer be found by boats but can now be found in military areas. Rifles and pistols are now harder to find. Adjusted fog and rain settings - maybe it'll get foggier and rain? Reduced the amount of seed packets and removed them from hunter spawns. They will only spawn at farms now. Added LessSkiningMeat mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1670944414 Added LessVegetablesHarvest mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1675754556 Reduced the number of soda cans that spawn. Reduced the canned food spawns. New spawns now spawn with no loot. Heatpacks removed. Reduce the number of blade weapons (machete, knife, etc) Added HealthRegen: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1682203063 Added Simply Planks: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1674364676 Make sure you check out our Discord server for the latest information and updates!

    Delete all current loot on a server?

    Loot is persistent. It stays there through server restarts, for a time determined by the types.xml file. Does anyone know how I can clear out all loot currently on my server without affecting containers or players? I see files in the storage_1/data folder of my server with the name "types". If I delete those files, will that achieve what I need?

    Adjust overall chance of loot spawning?

    I understand how to edit the types.xml to adjust the chances for individual items to spawn, but what do I have to do to adjust the chances for loot to spawn overall, or at least based on the type of loot or building? I am going for less loot and I've reduced the chances for a lot of items to spawn in types.xml, but I'm afraid that will lead to extra spawns of other loot that I didn't adjust.

    Option to place barrel - bug ?

    Unless the server you're playing on has BuildAnywhere, you're going to find it hard to place anything. The ground has to be perfectly flat to place anything. Pressing and holding the left mouse button will place the barrel.

    Take him off ignore. If he harasses you enough and you report it, he'll be gone.
  10. BetterDeadThanZed


    Report any post that he harasses you on.
  11. I edit my zombie_territories.xml and use equalModRequired=1; and my players can join just fine.

    Can Devs FIX In-Game Name please?

    I use OmegaManager. I can get all the info I need about my players, even if they don't set a name.

    Pitch black, why?

    Look for servers running the Arctic Latitudes mod. Typically night on those servers will be more of a "twilight" type of night, not pitch black.
  14. DZSALauncher shows you the exact time on the server. You should use that because it also downloads all the mods you need for that server.
