Version Number Date Added Features/Fixes Added
Build 34.28 (stable release) 26th May 2016
  • A new column in the server whitelist database shows the Steam ID of the owner the game, in case it is different than the Steam ID of the client that is connecting. This should allow admins to deal with problem players that are abusing the account-sharing features of Steam. To ban the owner of the game, the admin will need to add the owner's Steam ID to the bannedip table manually. Banning a player the usual ways only bans the Steam ID of the client, not the owner.
  • Moved coop-stderr.txt and coop-stdout.txt to Zomboid folder (they were in the install directory).
  • Fixed clients getting stuck in an endless download loop after an 8-second timeout had occured waiting for a map update from the server.
  • Disabled Nutrition.update() on the server and for dead players.
  • Server saves map_t.bin every 10 minutes instead of every 10 seconds (ouch) and does it in a separate thread.
  • Players are sorted by name in the in-game players list.
  • Take items from the ground and other containers when lighting fireplaces and woodstoves.
  • Fixed bird sound playing for trapped animals.
  • Fixed "Navigate + Use Doors" zombies opening locked doors and windows.
  • Fixed sleep-related traits not being available in multiplayer when sleep is allowed.
  • Reduce all food-related properties (like calories) when adding bait to traps.
  • Boredom/Unhappiness now get reduced when eating food or using food as bait.
  • Place moved rugs on top of the topmost floor object.
  • Removed a bunch of server and client console spam. If you want to see messages on the server about map loading/unloading, pass -debuglog=MapLoading on the commandline when launching the server. Other messages can be removed by setting -Dzomboid.znetlog=0 in the server's .json file (or .BAT/.SH file depending on how you start the server).
Build 34.27 (stable release) 18th May 2016

Version 34.24

  • Fixed exceptions when the server's SpawnPoint setting was improperly formatted.
  • Added UseTCPForMapDownloads server setting. This enables the old way clients received map data from the server. It may help the server run better when many clients are connected.
  • Fixed plant diseases going over 100, and not being treatable if they were already 100 or greater.
  • Fixed exceptions adding items to corpses in multiplayer.
  • Starting the game in Compatiblity Mode forces 1x textures on.
  • Added a "Soft Reset" button to the Host screen to do -Dsoftreset to the server's world.
  • Adjusted fatigue to increase faster. This was needed because sleeping was previously fixed to properly reduce fatigue all the way to zero. Waking up at 7AM, the tired moodle should first appear near 11PM.
  • Fixed food spawning as frozen in freezers without power (Six Months Later for example).
  • Fixed poison from food not considering the amount of food that was eaten.
  • Some people were getting a black screen in game. This was due to the Lighting.dll failing to load, which was caused by 1 of 2 things:
  • The system was missing Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime DLLs. The game comes with the installer for those DLLs, but I'm guessing they only run the first time the game is installed. So now the game itself will run those installers if the Lighting DLL couldn't be loaded.
  • Some people's systems have bugged installations of the C++ Runtime 2012. I rebuilt the Lighting DLL to use the newer C++ Runtime 2013 which didn't seem to have this problem.

Version 34.25

  • Added PlayerRespawnWithSelf and PlayerRespawnWithOther server options to enable spawning where you died or at a splitscreen partner's location.
  • Co-op hosts may always run server admin commands, even when the host's account is not admin.
  • Updated client and server to this version.

Version 34.26

  • Keep the controller listbox (the one you see in-game when first activating the controller) above other windows. Removed blank space below the last item in the list.
  • Fixed the game sometimes hanging in multiplayer after closing the window in-game.
  • When creating new server settings, all currently-active Workshop mods are added to the new settings. This also happens when starting a co-op server when the settings don't exist yet.
  • When adding a map in the server-settings editor, that map's spawnpoints.lua file is automatically added to the spawn regions list. Removing a map removes the spawnpoints.lua file from the spawn regions list.
  • Fixed button tooltips not showing up if they cover the button (when the button is near the bottom of the screen).
  • Co-op hosts connect to 127.0.0.1 for map downloads when UseTCPForMapDownloads=true.
  • Steam co-op hosts don't log in as admin anymore. This should be okay, since co-op hosts can now run admin commands whether they are admin or not.
  • Fixed some garbage creation on the server with the new map-download code.
  • Fixed username and speech text position over other players heads lagging in multiplayer.
  • Removed the old PZServerSettings program.
  • Avoid a possible NullPointerException in SwipeStatePlayer.
  • Changed how player coordinates are reported in the server's PVP log (now uses x,y,z world coordinates).

Version 34.27

  • Stop generalstore.other loot spawning in bin/clothingrack/filingcabinet/microwave.
  • Fixed light radius shrinking when lights were placed above ground floor.
  • Force the player awake after death if they will become a zombie.
  • Fixed clicking on containers from far away displaying their contents.
  • Fixed not being able to slice cooked Bread Dough.
  • Fixed SpawnItems going to the wrong player or no player after respawning in-game.
  • Fixed destroying floor at top of two adjacent staircases.
  • Fixed CanBeDoneFromFloor recipes not removing items in bags on the ground on the server.
  • Co-op hosts always see the admin buttons in the players list, even when not admin.
  • Fixed invisible players and their chat text sometimes being visible to non-admins.
Build 34.23 (stable release) 10th May 2016
  • All-new double-sized textures.
  • Easy Co-op server hosting from in the game.
  • Double-sized Tilesets option for low-spec machines.
  • There's a new server-settings editor in-game.
  • Barricades are allowed on both sides of a door/window. For doors, barricades absorb all damage before the door takes any, to stop the door being destroyed before the barricades. For windows, a barricade absorbs damage only when it is between the attacker and the window. When removing a barricade, one plank at a time is removed.
  • Allow rain barrels to be moved.
  • Added SleepAllowed and SleepNeeded server options for multiplayer sleeping. Players may sleep at any time. When all players are asleep, the server clock speeds up. Players sleep until they wake themselves by aiming or moving. Players may wake other players. Zombie attacks also wake players.
  • Fireplaces work like campfires.
  • Wood stoves now work like campfires. They emit light, warm/dry the player, can be used for cooking, and don't require electricity.
  • See-through doors. Hang sheets on see-through doors.
  • Fixed walls and solid objects on the floor below blocking movement going up stairs.
  • Staircases may now be placed above another staircase.
  • Crates can now be moved with the furniture-moving commands. When building new crates, the height is chosen automatically (no need to use the R key). Currently, this allows stacking crates on top of tables as well, although that might change. Destroying crates lower in a stack should cause the higher crates to drop down.
  • Allow digging farm plots with a shovel.
  • The "levelup" sound only plays when a point may be spent. It plays in these 2 cases:
  • 1) The player gained a point while already having enough XP for a new perk level.
  • 2) The player gained enough XP for a new perk level, and already had a point to spend.
  • Added "Zoom Levels" checkboxes to the options so users can choose zoom levels.
  • Added "Pour into" submenu so you can choose what to transfer water into.
  • "Fill" is now a submenu of items that water can be transferred into instead of having separate menu items (when taking water from a sink, for example).
  • Smoke bomb changes:
  • No longer start fires in multiplayer.
  • Now work when fire is disabled in multiplayer.
  • No longer emit light.
  • Don't burn corpses.
  • Use a larger smoke sprite when first triggered.
  • Memory-leak fixes in multiplayer.
  • Bags now displayed on ground.
  • New community translations.
  • Ham icon looks far less like a penis.
Build 24.22 (IWBUMS Release) 9th May 2016
  • Wall vines placed by the mapper become erosion wall vines (on the ground floor only).
  • Fixed adding/removing items to/from bags on the ground not sending those items to the server. Broken since February. Whoops!
  • Fixed fishing exception when no more lures were found when automatically adding another fishing action.
  • Fixed cooking recipes with the same name getting combined in the crafting ui. ('Prepare Rice' for example)
  • Juice Box: Eat -> Drink.
  • Axeman trait gives faster axe swings.
  • Fixed some issues saving when closing the game window while in-game instead of exiting.
  • Fixed erosion updates on the server every 10 minutes possibly affecting parts of the map that hadn't finished loading yet, resulting in invisible trees etc.
  • Added a graphical indicator to show how fast time is passing while sleeping in multiplayer. It updates once every 10 game-world minutes. I added this because it wasn't always obvious when the last awake player finally went to sleep, if you weren't staring at the clock.
Build 34.21 (IWBUMS Release) 6th May 2016
  • Fixed the launched server's name sometimes being different than the one displayed in the Host screen.
  • Updated community translation files. The encoding of Simplified Chinese files is now UTF-8.
  • Fixed random-building code running before a chunk was fully loaded, which sometimes caused sprite issues with erosion.
  • Fixed frozen food not aging at all; it was supposed to age 1/50 the rate of unrefrigerated food.
  • Fixed Watermelon DaysFresh being greater than DaysTotallyRotten.
  • Fixed possible exception and infinite loop when burning barricaded objects.
  • Smoke bomb changes:
  • No longer start fires in multiplayer.
  • Now work when fire is disabled in multiplayer.
  • No longer emit light.
  • Don't burn corpses.
  • Use a larger smoke sprite when first triggered.
  • Nutrition is disabled everywhere by default until more refinements are done. It can be turned on in new Sandbox games.
  • Fixed recipes sometimes producing rotten food as soon as the first ingredient was added.
  • Updated the screen shader to greatly reduce texture sparkles at the highest zoom levels. Let me know if this causes problems.
  • Fixed the screen position of the equipped secondary icon.
  • Fixed icon size in the radio/tv panel.
  • "Fill" is now a submenu of items that water can be transferred into instead of having separate menu items (when taking water from a sink, for example).
Build 34.20 (IWBUMS Release) 4th May 2016

  • Fixed 'Wake Up XYZ' not working on splitscreen players in multiplayer.

  • Fixed holes in floors being valid places to stand for some actions. (Issue #163)
  • Fixed moved woodstoves displaying fuel/fire sprites. (Issue #165)
  • Fixed some tile-property bugs (sink position in the Sunstar Motel bathrooms).

Build 34.19 (IWBUMS Release) 30th April 2016
  • Fixed tutorial breakage caused by customizing zoom levels.
  • Fixed render bug when ServerWelcomeMessage was empty.
  • Added a lamp to the tutorial cabin kitchen.
  • Non-public servers shouldn't show up on the Steam server browser. I wasn't able to test this though.
  • A co-op host can mark which friends are allowed to join. Those friends may then join without needing an invite from the host, using the in-game server browser, Steam's server browser, or Steam's 'Join Game' / 'View Game Info' menu commands.
  • Possibly fixed the Steam server browser not realizing clients left the game.
  • Fixed non-Steam co-op host not using the correct server password if one was set in the INI file.
  • Fixed client savefile name being 0_ServerName_player when joining a non-Steam hosted server. If you joined a non-Steam hosted server, rename your 0_ServerName_player folder to IP_Port_Username instead. This bug doesn't affect Steam-enabled hosted servers.
  • Fixed old tent sprites being used.
  • Fixed container overlay sprites not appearing outside of pre-built rooms.

  • Added an editor for spawnpoints.lua files to the server-settings editor.
  • Fixed adding sheetropes not consuming items in multiplayer.
  • When an installed Workshop item is added in the server-settings editor, all mods in that Workshop item are added to the Mods list. When a mod is added, any maps in that mod are added to the Maps list. So adding a Workshop item adds it's mods which adds those mod's maps automatically.
  • An error is displayed if a client attempts to accept an invite while in-game or when not at the main menu screen. Previously, the invite was ignored in these situations.
  • All friends are displayed in the Invite Friends screen along with their online/offline/etc state.
  • Instead of drawing individual drops, rain textures are drawn across the whole scene. The textures are chosen based on the intensity of the rain. Rain splashes may appear on every level (such as flat roofs), not just ground level. The textures aren't final.
Build 34.15 (stable release) 12th April 2016
  • Fixed the Mortality Sandbox option not showing the "Never" choice.

  • Fixed clearing the joypad focus for a coop player when the mouse-user closed the Sleep dialogbox.
  • The "levelup" sound only plays when a point may be spent. It plays in these 2 cases:
  • 1) The player gained a point while already having enough XP for a new perk level.
  • 2) The player gained enough XP for a new perk level, and already had a point to spend.
  • Reduced the rate of damage from poison.
  • Fixed "other" tables in SuburbsDistributions.lua not being used.
  • Changed the generalstore in West Point so the clothing area is separate and spawns appropriate loot.

  • Allow WildEggs as cake ingredient.
  • Fireplaces can be lit with the same items as campfires.
  • Fixed equipped clothing items being useable as fireplace fuel.
  • Wood stoves now work like fireplaces. They emit light, warm/dry the player, can be used for cooking, and don't require electricity.
  • Added IsoHeatSource system to handle warming/drying near barbecues, campfires, fireplaces and woodstoves. (Campfires already warmed/dried the player).
  • Fixed triggerEvent() not handling Lua exceptions resulting in a memory leak (reported by Jab).
  • Fixed client exception toggling PVP in multiplayer.
  • Prevent exceptions in multiplayer when a client wields an unknown type of item.
  • Fixed being allowed to dump dirt onto non-existing floors at z > 0.
  • Replaced furniture-moving context menu with a panel that shows when the mouse is over it. One less click required.
  • Added SleepAllowed server option for multiplayer sleeping. Players may sleep at any time. When all players are asleep, the server clock speeds up. Players sleep until they wake themselves by aiming or moving. Players may wake other players. Zombie attacks also wake players.
  • Pressing the A or B button on a controller exits to the menu after player death.
  • Changed "Bag of Oats" back to "Can of Oats"
  • Added "Zoom Levels" checkboxes to the options so users can choose zoom levels.

  • Fixed lightbulb color being lost after moving lamps.
  • Server spawn buildings are never randomized, and any zombies in them are removed when a player joins.
  • Barricades are allowed on both sides of a door/window. For doors, barricades absorb all damage before the door takes any, to stop the door being destroyed before the barricades. For windows, a barricade absorbs damage only when it is between the attacker and the window. When removing a barricade, one plank at a time is removed.
  • Allow rain barrels to be moved. Potential mod breakage: IsoThumpable.setMaxHealth() now only sets MaxHealth, it doesn't set Health as well.
  • Moving carpentry objects preserves the original object's modData table.
  • Fireplace: Fixed crash when lighting. Fixed sprite size/position. Fixed light radius in multiplayer.

  • Alarm sound stops playing sooner after fast-forwarding. (Issue #50)
  • Fixed most ??? and broken tiles in community maps that haven't been updated for the 2x tileset changes. The 'sewer' tileset doesn't exist in 2x yet, it's used in many Bedford Falls garages so they still display ???. These fixes should be applied when starting new games using community maps as well as loading old savefiles.
  • Fixed inventory-menu tooltips not going away sometimes when using the controller.
  • Added an in-game server settings editor. This is basically the same as PZServerSettings, but is in-game so it can be translated. It can be accessed by the new "Servers" button, which may go away once starting servers from the client is added.
  • The Sandbox options screen was redesigned. There were changes to how Sandbox and server options are implemented, to make it easier for the developers to add new options in the future. Please report any weird bugs with Sandbox or server options that these changes may have caused.

  • Don't allow non-empty containers (i.e., Garbage Bags) to be used as carpentry materials. (Issue #97)
  • Display the translated name of tools in the furniture-moving info window.
  • Fixed Mayonnaise not adding calories/carbs/lipids/proteins to food when used as a spice. (Issue #92)

  • Fixed container capacity changing when moving objects.
  • Fixed freezer container being lost when moving objects.
  • Fixed wrong container capacity being displayed when clicking on objects in the world.
  • Fixed non-food items getting aged, which after enough time would cause them to have no texture (the game was trying to use the "rotten" texture which didn't exist).
  • Fixed farming sprites not showing in the context menu.
  • Fixed farming sprites for in-game plants. There may be bugs here, it's a bit confusing.
  • Fixed some ??? tiles when importing old savefiles.
  • Fixed disappearing items and weight capacity possibly being exceeded when spawning items.

  • Fixed radio tile properties causing floating radios, and Makeshift turning into non-Makeshift when placed.
  • Crates can now be moved with the furniture-moving commands. When building new crates, the height is chosen automatically (no need to use the R key). Currently, this allows stacking crates on top of tables as well, although that might change. Destroying crates lower in a stack should cause the higher crates to drop down.
  • Fixed the new lighting system not "spotting rooms" properly. This prevented spawning of indoor zombies and generators.
  • Fixed black screen after a coop player died and respawned, caused by the lighting system not handling the new player's position in the world.
  • Fixed 3D models flickering on/off in coop.
  • Fixed massive memory leak with sprites. The Redboid server had 21GB of unreleased sprites after running for a day.
  • Fixed right-clicking not detecting players or corpses with the 2x tiles.
  • Fixed black fridge having 20 freezer capacity
  • Fixed the appearance of grime below windows (so it matches adjacent walls).

  • Fixed scoreboard not showing Steam details for distant players (all those %1).
  • ProjectZomboid64 exe uses ProjectZomboid64.site.json if it exists so people can customize JVM args. Ditto for ProjectZomboid32 and ProjectZomboid32.site.json. This was added because the original .json files may get overwritten when the game updates.
  • ProjectZomboid64/32 accept JVM arguments in addition to game arguments. This can be used to override vmArgs in the .json file. JVM arguments must end with a --, even if there are no game arguments.

Example: ProjectZomboid64.exe -Xmx1024m -- -nosteam

  • Setting Open=false no longer keeps a server out of the public server list.
  • /banuser on a disconnected user also bans that player's SteamID.
  • Log messages on Steam servers contain the SteamID instead of IP address, due to the Steam networking stuff not making it easy to get a player's IP address. The /list command displays IP or SteamID for players.

  • Removed the "ban ip" admin button on the scoreboard on Steam servers.

  • Added getModInfoByID(modID) Lua function.
  • Fixed "Navigate + Use Doors" zombie Cognition setting. The locked/barricaded/etc state of doors/windows wasn't checked (zombies would walk through locked doors). Doors/windows being opened by zombies wasn't synced in MP. (Issue #002121)
  • Options screen now has Back/Accept/Apply buttons. (Issue #002120)
  • Set fullscreen and resolution at the same time when applying option changes.

  • The 'steamid' field in the whitelist is updated every time a client connects.
  • Added "Blood Decals" option to limit the number of blood sprites rendered. "None" is an option. This is mostly for people with no-so-great computers in multiplayer.

  • Fixed blood-travel distance when stomping on zombies in multiplayer.
  • Fixed position of the Chat context menu (used to clear the chat text).
  • Added (CURRENT) resolution as the first in the list of choices in the options screen. If the window had a non-standard size, then the first resolution was the one selected even though it didn't reflect the window's current size. (Issue #002130)
  • Added a UI to set the time before bombs explode. It works with controllers.
  • Fixed lighting bug in coop when one player had "Cat's Eyes" trait. (Issue #002132)

  • Limit chat messages to 256 characters to combat spamming.

  • It seems some people are having issues with ProjectZomboid32.exe on 32-bit Windows. The console says "Could not reserve enough space for object heap". Let me know if that works or doesn't work for you. You might try disabling the Steam Overlay and see if that helps. I noticed that some Steam DLLs want to load themselves in the middle of the application heap, which prevents Java allocating a single large block of memory for it's heap space.

Build 32.20 (stable release) 12th Aug 2015

[Steam Workshop]

  • There's a new "Workshop" button in the main menu screen. That takes you to a screen where you can upload mods to Spiffo's Workshop. Look in your user Zomboid\Workshop\ModTemplate folder for an example of how to arrange your files for uploading.

[Steam Multiplayer]

  • There is now a proper anonymous dedicated server that can be installed and updated using SteamCMD. This is a separate Steam application. Here is an example of the commands you might use to install/update a server on Windows using SteamCMD:
    • login anonymous
    • force_install_dir C:\PZServer
    • app_update 380870 -beta iwillbackupmysave -betapassword <password> -validate
    • quit
  • Steam servers require two additional ports to function (I'm guessing they are both UDP ports, but you may need TCP as well). These are in addition to the DefaultPort= setting. These can be specified in two ways:
    • In the server's INI file as SteamPort1= and SteamPort2=.
    • Using command-line options -steamport1 and -steamport2.

[Steam versus Non-Steam]

  • You will see "(Steam)" next to the version number in the main-menu screen when running a Steam-enabled client. Steam-enabled clients can only connect to Steam-enabled servers. Servers still require an account username and password, however be aware that you are logged into the server using your Steam account credentials. Other players can see your Steam avatar and profile name in the scoreboard regardless of the server username you choose.

[Steam Broadcasting]

  • This allows other people to watch you play. Open the Steam Overlay, click Settings, click the Broadcasting tab, then click the link at the top beside "Broadcast Status" to start a broadcast. There may be an easier way.

[Other changes]

  • Updated LWJGL (OpenGL library) to version 2.9.3.

  • The second change affects how zombies group together in loaded parts of the map. Now zombies prefer to stand around in groups of 20 or less, and don't get attracted to each other quite so often.

Build 32 (stable release) 25th May 2015

[NEW STUFF] Zombie Respawning

[spoiler]
  • The zombie-respawning system was rewritten. This picture shows a part of West Point. Each large rectangle is one cell (300x300 tiles). The small rectangle is the loaded part of the map around the player. Each red dot is one zombie. The yellow dots are the "real" zombies in the loaded part of the map. In the top-left corner of each cell you can see the number of zombies in that cell followed by the number of zombies there were when the game first started (the desired population). The third number is how many hours before new zombies can spawn.
  • The sandbox option "Zombies Respawn Interval" controls how often zombies respawn. Zombies will respawn only when the current population in a cell is lower than the desired population. In mutiplayer, the HoursForZombiesRespawn server option is used instead. In survival mode this is set to "Every Day".
  • The sandbox option "Zombies Respawn Percent" controls how many zombies respawn each interval. This is the percent of the desired population that is added each interval. In multiplayer, the ZombiesRespawnPercent server option is used instead. In survival mode this is set to "10 percent".
  • Zombies won't respawn in loaded parts of the map. This is to avoid zombies popping up in front of the player. They also won't spawn in any part of the map that was loaded within the last hour of game time.
  • Zombies should never respawn in any buildings or fenced-off areas. The game checks if there is a clear path from one randomly-chosen square on the edge of the world to the place it wants to place new zombies. If a path can't be found, then no zombies will be spawned in that part of the map.
    • 2 new professions: Electrician (can operate generators and create electronics device for traps) and Engineer (can create traps/explosive)
    • Added generators:
      • You can find them in shed/generator, you can then take them and drag them near a house.
      • You need to be an electrician or found the recipe book to use them.
      • Once placed near a house, it doesn't work with player made safehouse yet, right click and plug it.
      • You can now add fuel in them and then turn them on. It now provide electricity to surrounding area.
      • The generator will deplete fuel and condition slowly, a bad condition generator could start a fire or even explode, be sure to fix them with electronics scraps! Oh, it also does a lot of noise... ;)
    • Traps/Explosive:
      • Molotov, flame trap, pipe bomb, noise maker, smoke bomb and aerosol bomb!
      • After crafted them (need to be engineer, but you can find some books to learn the recipes) you can throw them or place them on the ground.
      • Some electronics devices can be added to them: remote trigger, movement sensor or even timer!
    • Added the tutorial, give it a try! It's the first step tutorial, it won't teach you all the mighty stuff you can do, but it'll provide a good base for new player as it teach movement, fighting, looting, eating/drinking... And use of context key!
    • Random character creation and save your character creation! (mod from BlindCoder)
    • Added 2 new challenges!
      • Opening hours: The Mall is surrounded. Once upon a time, it was an important place in their lives. Instinct has led them to its doors. A memory of what they used to do... You are alone, but not for long. At 9AM the Mall will be ready for business: doors will open, and the hordes will enter. Be ready for them.
      • Winter is Coming: It's mid-July, but suddenly there's a chill on the breeze. In a mere three days' time a winter will set in like no other before it. You awake in an isolated location. You have meagre supplies, and the undead hordes might be **slowed by the intense cold - but they are no less deadly. Wrap up warm, survivor...

  • Same for rain collector barrel water.
  • Tainted water can still be drink but cause some food poisonning.
  • Boil it (only in pot or bowl) to remove the tainted
  • New Traits/Professions/Last Stand/Level system: Explained by the one and true Lemmy:
  • You have now 10 levels instead of 5, the level 10 correspond to the level 5.
  • Professions
    • Professions now often give skill points, and these tie in directly to the learning speed in those skills as well as the starting skill level. This is to further diversity character creation and make the professions feel like an actual previous experience exists instead of starting characters as blank slate.
    • Also professions are not all necessarily free, so there is the potential for some more powerful start professions to require negative traits to balance. Unemployed gives 8 points to start. This is very important for reasons that will be clear when we talk about the new traits.
    • So you may pick the Carpenter profession, and right out of the bat this gives you 3 points in carpentry. This not only means starting on level 3, but the carpenter will gain a 50% boost to XP in that skill.
    • The scaling goes as follows, based on the starting skill level:
    • 0) 0.25x speed (eek)
    • 1) 1x speed
    • 2) 1.25x speed
    • 3) 1.5x speed
    • 4) 1.5x speed
    • 5) -
    • This multiplier is permanent for the entire game. Even when you get to level 1 in a 0 level skill, you retain the x4 time to learn it.
    • The idea being that now, a carpenter with skills ONLY in carpentry may advance in carpentry at a fast speed. Their hopes of becoming an expert farmer any time soon are remote. So this further diversifies characters to provide much more varied runs in single player, and provides more potential for teamwork and specific roles in MP and ultimately NPCs. However a carpenter being doomed to ONLY ever be able to learn carpentry quickly is going to be in trouble, so enter:
  • Trait Revamp
    • A few big changes to traits
    • 1) Currently non relevant traits have been removed until NPCs go in. Light Drinker and all the other cheesable traits.
    • 2) We've added a ton more. Some need better names and others may be OP/UP and may need nerfing or point values changing.
    • 3) To counter the fact that a profession may only allow leveling up a single skill. Specifically, a range of traits now act as hobbies. Say you pick 'Gardener' trait that says the character enjoyed gardening in their pre-apocalypse life. This will give a single point in farming, for example, and while this doesn't seem like a huge deal in itself, since its a character creation skill point, it DOES mean that they are now learning farming at a 1x speed rate instead of just 1/4th speed. This makes farming a viable skill to train up during a run. Think Morrowind minor / major skills. So now the player is encouraged to pick a few hobbies or other traits that round out their character with skills they intend to use, and now with little in the way of exploits with negative traits they will have to build some bigger disadvantages into their character to compensate. This is why unemployed gets extra points to start. They have the time to invest in hobbies, and need them to have any skills they can train at a decent speed at all.
  • I haven't done the descriptions for the professions / traits yet (want to run them through Will) or any UI elements to convey the starting skills or training speeds etc, but here is a list of professions and traits:
  • New professions list
    • Unemployed
    • Fire Officer (3 blade, axeman)
    • Police Officer (3 aim, 2 reload, 1 nimble)
    • Park Ranger (2 trap, 2 forage, 1 carpentry)
    • Construction Worker (3 blunt, 1 carpentry)
    • Security Guard (night owl, 2 sprinting, 1 lightfoot)
    • Carpenter (3 carpentry)
    • Burglar (2 nimble, 2 sneak, 2 lightfoot)
    • Chef (3 cooking, 1 blade maint, 1 blade)
    • Repairman (1 carpentry, 2 blade maint, 2 blunt maint)
    • Farmer (3 farming)
    • Fisherman (3 fish, 1 forage)
    • Doctor (3 doctor)
    • Veteran (desensitized, 2 aiming, 2 reload)
  • Traits
    • Not going to list them all, just the ones that may not be completely obvious.
    • Adrenaline Junkie - Can run faster when in top level of panic
    • Inconspicuous - Just naturally better at not standing out.
    • Packmule - Raises amount that can be fit into bags.
    • Disorganized - Lowers amount that can be fit into bags.
    • Self Defense Class - 1 blade guard, 1 blunt guard
    • First Aid (1 doctor - should be unselectable with doctor prof really. same with a few others)
    • Fishing (hobbie - 1 fishing, should be excluded for fisherman)
    • Gardener (1 farming, should be excluded for farmer)
    • Jogger (1 sprinting, better endurance)
    • Illiterate (can't read skill books at all)
    • Dexterous (Faster loot speed. should impact other things too in future)
    • All Thumbs (opposite of Dexterous)
    • Pacifist (slower at learning combat skills)
    • Brawler (1 blade, 1 blunt. Don't like this name, but basically someone who gets in fights regularly)
    • Plays Baseball (faster swing with baseball bat)
    • Hiker (1 forage, 1 trapping)
    • Hunter (1 aiming, 1 trapping, 1 sneak)
    • Gymnast (1 lightfooted, 1 nimble)
    • Insomnia (fatigue recharge when asleep very very low. Will likely wake up tired)
  • Challenges
    • Also in this version is a modified version of Last Stand menu that allows for challenges using the last stand challenge system but playing in survival game mode. I discussed this in an earlier thread that it's important to make this feel a more complete game, a way of unlocking additional challenges, a feeling of progression, and also providing some goals for players that may have none. Now the framework is there, so if RJ , EasyP, Turbo want to add any challenges, or for that matter everyone on here with some lua skillz chance to contribute. Want a fun challenge to be in the game? Make something and put it on this forum, and get it past the community and us and its in there.
    • Also there may be another challenge in there called 'A Really CD DA' which may be fun! :P
  • More stuff will be added as we confirm/finish test

  • Added experimental population management: after an area is abandoned by the player, new zombies will migraite slowly from this point. I'll need feedback on it. :)
  • [MP] Added experimental loot respawn, you have to setup the serverOption "HoursForLootRespawn", if you set it as 48, it mean the zone will have to be unseen for 48 in game hour before loot respawning, same as zombies respawn, I'd LOVE to have feedback on it :)
  • I'm also working on (idk if it'll be done for this build tho..) the ability to paint letters/text on wall.
  • New crafting : Bookcase, shelves, bed...
  • Map fixes (no more falling through Mall stairs, etc...).

  • Tent will now require a tarp (instead of the sheets) to be crafted.
  • You can now craft a mattress with some sheet, pillow, thread and a needle.

  • You can now type admin commands directly in the console, no need to log as admin, for example do a : additem "rj" "Base.Axe" directly in the console to add this user an Axe, more admin commands are coming (probably for this build, will do it while testing), like broadcasting message and.. Well.. Idk yet :P (I'll update the "how to administrate your server" post today)
  • You can now add game meat (I mean rabbit, birds, squirrel.. from trapping) inside soup and stew.
  • Loot respawn can't happen in a zone where the player have built (or barricaded) stuff (to avoid spawning in/near safe house).

    • Earplugs
    • Rings

  • [MP] Fixed safety toggle from sometimes not synced.
  • [MP] Even if DisplayUserName is off, you can now see the safety skull.
  • Disable stencil buffer in 3D model FBO. Added checkGLError() calls to get more info about what fails when creating FBOs. It seems Intel GPUs often don't support the combined depth/stencil images.
  • Set SandboxVars (Lua variable) from SandboxOptions after loading map_sand.bin. (Issue #000325). There is a Lua function SandboxOptions.load() but it only loads some of the variables.

  • Print an error if there is no spawn-point table for the current map.
  • Fixed female pants/skirt glitch when not wearing a top.
  • Fixed RecipeManager bug calculating the age of created items.
  • Fixed 3D animation glitch when weapon attack animation finishes.
  • Fixed a big hitch when first seeing a large group of 3D zombies. Borrow the OpenGL context from the RenderThread only one time when setting the zombie models.
  • Fixed an old map-streaming bug. It's possible to have a chunk scheduled to be saved/reused and loaded at the same time. This can happen if you step over a chunk boundary and then back again quickly. What was happening was the chunk woul...
  • Make walking in GhostMode approx 1/2 slow as sprinting. This is used in multiplayer. Always moving at warp speed makes it hard for admins to walk along ledges etc.
  • Reduced garbage creation and with 3D models. Don't update model lights in the render thread.
  • Change current animation after switching weapons while aiming. (Issue #000315)
  • Fixed smash-a-window becoming open-a-window when initially in attack stance. (Issue #000314)
  • Added custom maps in multiplayer. Since custom maps are handled through the modding system, mods are needed in multiplayer. In serverOptions.ini, "Mods" is a semicolon-separated list of mod id names. Mods=BedfordFalls;AnotherMod;YetAn...
  • Fixed IsoGridSquare.EnsureSurroundNotNull() not respecting the map bounds.
  • Mods can load custom .pack and .tiles files.
    • In a mod's mod.info file: pack=NAME : means load media/texturepacks/NAME.pack tiledef=NAME NUMBER means load media/NAME.tiles There may be multiple pack= and tiledef= lines in each mod.info
  • Walk next to a tent before sleeping in it.
  • Fixes to ISBuildingObject.
  • Added "Destroy Floors" command. Only allowed at z > 0. People wanted this to correct carpentry errors (and fight griefers who block stairs with floors).
  • Fixed LastStand bugs.
  • Fixed tents. ISBuildingObject changes. Tents use both front and back tiles and can face either direction.
  • Increase the distance that Shift-clicking toggles curtains.
  • Darkened localToBuilding lights a bit.
  • Call GameClient.getCustomModData() when needed.
  • Fixed RecalcAllWithNeighbours() not recalculating all the squares it needed to. Stumbled upon this while doing the chop-down-tree action.
  • Added chop-down-tree timed action.
  • Fixed 'hours survived' getting reset in MP.
  • Throw an exception when loading IsoWorldInventoryObjects when the item type is unknown (same as ItemContainer.load() does)
  • Discard IsoWorldInventoryObjects that use obsolete item types.
  • Fixed not being able to sprint N/S/W/E in GhostMode (Issue #000297) . If the amount of movement is > 1 in any direction then testCollideAdjacent() returns true.
  • Fixed GhostMode not being set when admin joins a server. Don't drawDebugChunkMap() unless Core.bDebug is set. (Issue #000296)
  • ISDestroyStuffAction: sync the breakdoor sound with the sledgehammer swing animation. Sync sound in MP too.
  • Fixed ambient door/window lights "popping" when turning.
  • Fixes to ISTakeWaterAction.
  • Save the game after converting to a new world version.
  • Redid the food-aging system.
  • Don't print "timeout downloading zip" in console once the download has finished.
  • Free 3D model slots before return-to-menu. There seemed to be stale zombies and players in ModelManager.Contains.
  • Display the weapon condition, cooking progress, and drainable-amount-remaining as progress bars. Also moved the "Contains:" recipe line below the item name, and fixed images *overlapping the Contains: label. Also fixed the InventoryPane co...
  • Fixed AdjacentFreeTileFinder not handling diagonals (Issue #285).
  • Fixed fridge/stove temperature being off by 1 day wrt electricity shutoff.
  • Fixed teleporting through wall when using 'E' to climb a sheet rope on the other side of the wall.
  • Add support for obsolete script items. This is needed since savefiles cannot be loaded if there are unknown items. The type of item (Food, Weapon, etc) needs to be the same so the InventoryItem (or subclass) load() method reads the correc...
  • Fixed some issues with destroying windows.
    • 1) A wall with a window couldn't be destroyed with the sledgehammer. ISWorldObjectContextMenu now checks for a wall if there is a window.
    • 2) Removing a window leaves the wall behind, but there i...
  • Fixed adding sheetrope on the server. The client calls canAddSheetRope() which calls getOrCreateGridSquare(), but the server doesn't.
  • Fixed ISInventoryPage using invalid container with ItemPicker. Also set IsoGameCharacter.inventory to "explored".
  • Fixed local/global chat not using the desired key bindings.
  • Fixed typo in SuburbsDistributions.lua (affected mechanic shop)
  • Fix #2 for IsoCell.getOrCreateGridSquare on the server.
  • Added GLBufferObject to hide whether the ARB or core version of glGenBuffers etc is used. Some people get a "glGenBuffers unsupported" error with the 3D models, which is odd *since that is part of the OpenGL 1.5 API.
  • Allow spawnpoints at z > 0. Fixed return-to-menu bug that spawned new players at z > 0. IsoChunkMap.WorldZA wasn't getting initialized between sessions, so if the previous player was loaded at z > 0, the next new player would spawn at z ...
  • Fixed IsoCell.getOrCreateGridSquare on the server.
  • Fixed ServerList.txt file stream not being closed.
  • Fixed mod.info file streams not being closed.
  • MP time sync: server sends clock time to clients every 10 game minutes.
  • Fixed missing 3D female hair. SurvivorFactory.setHairNoColor uses F_Hair_Bob, F_Hair_Long, F_Hair_Long2, F_Hair_OverEye and F_Hair. But there is no f_hair.txt so I used f_hair_kate.txt
  • IsoObjectPicker scores IsoThumpable doors the same as regular doors.
  • Prevent zombies thumping on crafted door frames. Someone reported a door frame was destroyed before the door.
  • Farming/campfire fixes.
    • 1) The LoadGridsquare event on the server is happening before the square's properties are updated, so the 'exterior' check fails.
    • 2) After a server soft-reset, the farming clock is reset to zero, so last-time-water...
  • Fixed lighting not being updated immediately when opening/closing doors.
  • Allow doors to be built inside regular door frames, not just IsoThumpable door frames.
  • Fixed destroying IsoThumpable container destroys contained items. When destroyed with the sledgehammer context menu command, items were not destroyed.
  • Fixed campfire sprite not getting set properly in MP.
  • Fixed soft-reset bug with campfires.
  • Fixed ISFarmingInfo bug on client.
  • Fixed excessive memory usage during server soft-reset.
  • Fixed campfire object not updating on load.
  • Campfire rewrite
    • Added ISCampfire object.
    • Got rid of campfire ID#.
    • Use nested modData tables instead of "campfire:N:...".
    • Don't extinguish campfires instantly when rain starts. Instead, reduce the fuel twice as fast as long as it is r...
  • Synced removing build material from the ground.
    • Seems like there was a bug in the loop as well, since it removed items without decrementing 'm'.
  • Update ISFarmingInfo on the client when plants change.
  • Farming: plants that are not outside don't get watered when it rains, get less health from sunny days. Some plants (carrots and radishes) suffer when there is too much water, so people grow then inside.
  • Changes to Core.setDisplayMode()
    • 1) Fixed RenderThread.returnContext() not getting called if the display mode couldn't be set.
    • 2) Only accept isFullscreenCapable() display modes when asking for fullscreen.
    • 3) Set fullscreen + displaymod...
  • Fixed running out of file handles on Linux (too many open files).
    • Looking at Resource Monitor I saw many open files:
    • 1) All the .lotheader files
    • 2) Many duplicate ambient stream .ogg files (windy day, windy night etc); more as time passed...
  • Fixed see-through-walls on z > 0 along chunk boundaries.
  • It was possible to see through the west walls of the 3-story grey office building in Westpoint. This was due to there being no squares on the other side of the wall.
  • Fixed chunky lighting.
  • I set out to fix non-smooth lighting on exterior walls at z > 0. Turns out this fixes chunky lighting inside rooms as well.
  • Fixed quoting problem with projectzomboid.sh (Linux demo won't launch).
  • Fixed IsoWindow properties.
  • Allow right-clicking on IsoThumpable walls that are s or e of the player.
  • When thumpable walls are "transparent" it wasn't possible to interact with them via the right-click menu. No plaster, paint, etc was possible.
  • Fixed rare exception in SpeedControlsHandler
  • Fixed garbage creation in ModelCamera
  • Fixed issues with windows on chunk boundaries. Issue #000237
  • Fixed a rare crash in SwipeStatePlayer. The code I commented out already happens near line 331.
  • Fixed 3D player not facing the direction of movement when walking a path.
  • Fixed light sources not being removed when out of bounds.
  • Fixed pistol clips disappearing on Normal/Hardcore reloading difficulty.
  • Prevent item duplication in MP due to delaying grabbing items from the ground.
  • Fixed 3D animations not being the same duration as the sprite animation. If you chopped a tree with an axe with the 3D player model, you could hear that the chopping wasn't in sync with the animation. IsoSprite.update() does "def.Frame +=...
  • Improved blood splatter rendering / logic .
  • Server handles the -debuglog commandline option.
  • Taking/spilling dirt removes blend_grassoverlay tiles and attached sprites (blend tiles).

[TRANSLATION]

  • Korean language is back !
  • Japanese language ! (thanks a lot Katzengarten !)
2.9.9.17 build 25 v3 25th March 2014
  • Temporary reset to 2D sprites for player if graphic card does not support FBOs. Just until we can get the remaining compat issues fixed. This will be removed as soon as we get 100% compatibility. As stated before having 2D + 3D for player characters will hold us back terribly in future.
  • Optimization of FBOs. Only uses one for every 3D character in the game.
  • Fixed some colour tint issues on 3D models so they match 2D counterparts more closely, which improves the switch from 2D to 3D for zombies, tho some issues still remain (momentary flick to different direction on occasion, as well as turning a 3D model to a 2D sprite constrained the 8 compass directions). I did notice that in full daytime they looked a little muddy but can't say if that's a new thing or was the case in previous build. Will look to fix that.
  • Lowered default # models in 3D since some of those who did have FPS issues often didn't occur to them to lower the 3D model count in options themeselves. :( looked into an FPS driven auto system but found its results a little unpredictable and weird.
  • Other stuff, will get the others to fill out.
2.9.9.17 build 25 v2 21th March 2014

NO OFFICIAL CHANGELIST

2.9.9.17 build 25 17th February 2014

[BUGFIX]

  • Remove plant action is now synchronised.
  • Some fix on farming (plant was here but unusable, ...).
  • Added a warning message if you try to type and unknown command in the chat (like if you type "/al Hello!" you'll have a "Unknown comman /al Hello!" warning in the chatbox.
  • Now trim the /all message (understand you can't just write "/all").
  • Rain barrel are now loaded on player correct.
  • Fixed missing pillar sprites when building stairs (and also made them destroyable).
  • Fixed tomato instant growing.
  • Fixed building walls problem with a controller plugged.
  • Bleach is Unhappiness +99 instead of -10 (used to make you happy?)
  • Craftable doors could be opened from far away by clicking on them.
  • Synced burning players and zombies. The player might be burning on the server but not on the client before.
  • Fixed never-wake-up from sleep bug.
  • No more barricading crafted walls, or adding sheet ropes to crafted walls.
  • Fixed Survival Guide contents being drawn over the title bar.
  • When a player died in multiplayer, all the other players would equip the dead player's stuff.
  • The "Climb through window" context menu command now works if you are trapped in a piece of furniture next to a window. Holding 'E' already worked.
  • Fixed moodles sometimes overlapping.
  • Fixed animation speed of rain and fire at different FPS.
  • Fixed save folders with spaces not loading. Although the game converts spaces to underscores when creating a savefile, there is nothing from stopping the user from renaming the folder.
  • Fixed sheet rope climb speed not being affected by the speed control setting.
  • MP: Scratches from weapons would cause infection.
  • Fixed water remaining in sinks/toilets not being remembered properly.
  • Make sure tooltips get hidden when windows are hidden.
  • Stopped zombies thumping crafted stairs, so they can climb them now.
  • Fixed path separators in the joypad directory on Linux.
  • Fixed the Caps Locks key breaking savefile names etc.
  • MP: Less weirdness with blood/animations when fighting zombies.

[NEW STUFF]

  • Added the number of players connected in the PLAYERS list (press escape and click "PLAYERS").
  • You now can't join a server with an empty user name.
  • Added a "QUICK JOIN" button in the server list, allowing you to join the server without save it in the list.
  • Safety System : [1]
  • Added key binding for Local chat, Global chat and Toggle safety.
  • The on/off state of stoves is saved.
  • The inventory window font size can be changed between Small, Medium and Large fonts.
  • Set Disabled=true in a game controller *.config file to ignore that device.
  • The Heavy Load moodle now has 4 different settings (only 1 was shown before). The player is slowed down more with increasing weight up to 2x maximum carrying capacity.
  • MP: Synced zombie appearance. Ditto for zombie corpses.
  • Added "Remove sheet rope" command. You get the sheets back but not the nail.
  • Added "Climb through" command to crafted window frames, same as normal windows.
  • MP: Reduced book reading time by 1/2.
  • MP: Synced thunder and lightning.
  • MP: Synced weather-related stuff such as temperature, phase of the moon, and nighttime brightness.

  • Mods are loaded/unloaded as soon as the Mods window is closed.
  • MP: Added player slow-down when zombies grab.
  • MP: Sync zombie sounds.
  • There's a -nosound option that disables audio.

[OTHER]

  • Changed the calcul in the eat 1/4, 1/2 food option (it's now always based on the base hunger reduction).

[CLIENT]

  • Map choose + Character creation + Random spawn point added. Note : Random spawn point can be changed by the admin so everyone could spawn at the same point, but by default it'll be random (just like single player).
  • Servers in ServerList will be pinged, so you can see if they are online, the number of players connected...

[SERVER]

  • The server welcome message is now in the server options (Users/Zomboid/Server/ServerOptions.ini only on server side) ready to be customized.
  • Soft world reset. Will remove zombies, bodies, loot, reset all containers in world. Will leave all construction in place.
  • Database will now be created if not found on the server.
  • Added a LogLocalChat server option, used to log the local chat ("t" key) in all the client chat box.
  • Added AutoCreateUserInWhiteList Server option : If you server is open, this option will allow the server to create the user in whitelist if they entered the server with a password, so his username will be *protected.
  • DisplayUserName : False = you won't see another players username on top of their head + their name won't be logged inside the local chat (true by default).
  • Added administration tools : http://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php/topic/5813-how-to-administrate-a-server/
2.9.9.17 build 23 4th February 2014

[PERFORMANCE]

  • Big improvements to multithreaded rendering performance.

[BUGFIX]

  • Fixed a bug in the thunder : The system roll a dice each day, and you have 1/20 chance of having a "thunder day", though a bug made every day is a thunder day ! So yeah, I know some of you loves thunder, but *you'll have much less of them now.. :P
  • Fixed some farming bugs (mainly plant disapear though you could still water them etc. Thanks Twiggy for the saved game ! :)).
  • If you have an item equipped in both hands (e.g. baseball bat) and unequip it, the BOTH hands will now be unequipped.
  • Light switches and lamps should Just Work ™ now. Whether a light switch is on or off is now saved (which required the world version to be bumped). Plus, turning a lamp on or off in a room will no longer turn *all the room's lights on/off. Light switches have a higher priority than other objects so they're easier to click on (I figure that's ok since they're so tiny, they won't block you clicking on important stuff *usually). Also street lights don't mysteriously shut off after you leave an area or reload your game. And Mash has been busy adding missing switches and lamps to the map.
  • Fixed not being able to click the scrollbar in the options screen when scrolled down.
  • Fixed the Reload difficulty combobox getting repositioned after clicking (it's position was getting restricted to the screen size even though it is in a scrolling parent widget).
  • Made a few attempts to fix weapon-related bugs. The timed action queue would sometimes get broken when firing/reloading while other actions were in progress.
  • Fixed hovering the mouse over the moodles at non-100% zoom.
  • Fixed multiple attacks per attack animation while holding down the left mouse button. This doesn't fix the pistol shooting too quickly, it has a very short attack animation.
  • Fixed the shotgun sprite not rendering while aiming it.
  • Fixed the mousewheel not working in the character-creation screens. The main options screen was getting the mousewheel events even though it was hidden.
  • Fixed the traits list in character creation not scrolling properly after removing traits from it.
  • Fixed dragging tabs out of the character info window. Now when you drag a tab out to a separate window, that window will be toggled by the hotkey. So if you drag the health tab out, 'h' will hide/show just that window. Ditto for the skills and traits tabs.
  • Squares along chunk boundaries were all marked as blocked in the NE or SW directions. Tracked this down after I saw some weird lighting on the ground near a streetlight. Probably affected pathfinding too.
  • Light switches were using 30 days as the electricity cuttoff date when they should have been using the sandbox option (14 days in survival).
  • Ambient light from outside buildings shines through windows and doors so rooms aren't quite as dark at night. The code for this was already in there but got broken at some point.
  • UIElement no longer creates a double-click if the mouse moved more than 5 pixels in any direction from the initial click.
  • Fire fixes:
    • MIssing sprites. Still some missing smoke sprites due to a naming issue in the pack file.
    • The same fire added twice to the global list of fires.
    • Fire objects not getting removed from the square they were on after they burned out.
    • NullPointerException due to fires getting added where they weren't allowed.
    • Characters that were burning when saving the game weren't given fire sprites or light after loading.
    • When a real zombie was turned into a virtual one the fire sprites and light were not removed from it, so when it got turned into a real zombie later it looked like it was burning.
  • Got the molotov weapon working pretty well. No idea if they can be crafted or not. You can see the molotov flying through the air when thrown (It was using a sprite that didn't exist). After throwing, another molotov will be chosen as the current weapon if the player has one rather than switching to some other weapon. The throw physics needs work. Currently, the closer the target, the lower the throw velocity.
  • Crafting stairs bugs fixed. There was a field not being saved that caused crafted stairs to become blocked when trying to use them. There was also a bigger issue that put new grid squares into the wrong location, so when you went up the stairs there was no floor tile at the top and you ended up floating on z=1. The fix for that might break other stuff though. :shock:
  • This : http://theindiestone...ter-infinitely/ fixed
  • Fixed crafted items in a bag not being transferred to the main inventory before crafting begins. This is the reason your clothes get ripped when you click on an item in one of your bags to make bandages for example.
  • Fixed farming actions causing the player to walk right onto the plant's square instead of stopping next to the square.
  • Fixed the inventory tooltip being invisible after unpausing the game if the mouse was hovering over the inventory window. Also, hide the inventory tooltip when mousing over the Category column, otherwise it obscures the grab/drop buttons and stays stuck on the last item it was over.
  • Fixed right-clicking on windows with containers behind them.
  • Items in equpped bags show 'unpack' instead of 'grab' buttons. There was a save/load bug that broke this.
  • Fixed glitches with clicking/dragging tabs in the character info window.
  • Fixed the inventory/loot windows sometimes getting "stuck" following the mouse.
  • Fixed the -Game Paused- text being off-center.
  • Fixed the player sometimes getting drawn overtop of objects after coming down a staircase.
  • Fixed skill-book reading times. If you increased the game speed while reading, the book would get read much more quickly. Now every page takes 2 game-world minutes to read no matter the game speed.
  • The player now remembers how many pages of each type of book have been read. In the old system, each book recorded the number of pages read in itself only. That was a problem if you started a new character *from an old savefile, the new character couldn't read already-read books.
  • Fixed DrainableComboItem rate of depletion. Candles would not be drained at 60 fps.
  • Unequip items (such as candles) when depleted.
  • The item selection is cleared when switching containers in the inventory/loot windows.
  • Fixed inventory item text being drawn more than once when dragging.
  • Fixed not being able to unequip clothes from the primary/secondary slots.
  • Damage from fire to the player wasn't affected by the speed setting.
  • Fixed mysterious burnt wall tiles sometimes appearing where fires had been after sleeping.
  • Fixed mod resources and savegame thumbnails not loading on MacOSX.
  • Food starts cooking when its internal temperature reaches a certain point, not just when the stove it is in is at a certain temperature. A side effect of this is that food will continue to cook for a short time when removed from a stove.
  • The 'Skill points available' display was changed to handle double-digit skill points better.
  • Fixed an exception when placing a farming plot while it was raining. Also fixed sprites from previously-built items showing up when rotating a farming plot with the 'R' key.
  • Fixed Lua timed action update() method not seeing the 100% job delta.
  • Fixed Lua debugger not centering the source window on a breakpoint.
  • Screen resolutions are now sorted by increasing width and height in the options.
  • Fixed o/p keys in Last Stand challenge 2 working in challenge 1.
  • Fixed the on/off state of building alarms not being restored properly. The game would correctly save whether an alarm was on/off, but would only set it to 'on' when reloading a game. Because of this and because the on/off state is initially randomized every time a game starts, over time more and more buildings would get alarmed. When loading an old savefile, the status of alarms will be reset to a reasonable amount. This should only affect buildings that haven't been explored yet. You'll see the total number of alarmed buildings printed to the console.
  • Clicking the 'inventory' button will toggle the loot window in sync with the inventory window, in case one was visible and the other was not.
  • Fixed multiple raindrops and rain splashes on single tiles.
  • Fixed randomly seeing through walls. If you ran right along a wall, you could sometimes see inside the building. This also seemed to happen when climbing through a window.
  • Fixed animation issue with zombies climbing through windows, they would appear to teleport forward for 1 frame.
  • Fixed the text-entry box drawing text when it's parent was collapsed. If you use the NecroForge mod you'll know what I mean.

[[NEW STUFF]]

  • Added mouse-over highlighting to combobox choices.
  • Added 'walk to' timed actions before using a water source, using a stove, or grabbing items off the ground. No more refilling your bottles from across the room.
  • When clicking on a container in the world, that container will be highlighted in the loot window, but only if the container is in the loot window. Previously, some other container (or none) would be highlighted even though the clicked container's contents were in the list.
  • Added a 'layout manager' to remember the size/position/visibility/pinned state of the various game windows. It remembers this at each different resolution. All the info is saved to layout.ini in the user's Zomboid folder whenever the game exits during the new OnPostSave event.
  • Added mouse-over highlighting to combobox choices.
  • Restored the old pulsing read damage indicators in the health panel.
  • Made the character-trait tooltips easier to read in the tabbed character window.
  • You can now build light sources, for now only one : some planks, some nails + a torchlight and here you go, a 4 directions torchlight on a wooden pillar, don't forget to turn it off when you leave your base as it drain energy ! Also don't forget to change the battery some times.. ;) Note : This is fully moddable, you can do light source with everything you want, including fuel you want (or no fuel but just a life, like for candle, but those are planned already :D), don't hesitate if you have some question on it !
  • Campfire context menu now has submenus for "Add Fuel" and "Light" so you can choose exactly which inventory item to use. You already could choose the item for "Add Fuel".
  • When pausing the game, all the in-game windows are hidden so you can't click on them while using the option screen. Less clutter too.
  • A progress bar shows how long until food is cooked, and how long before it is burned after cooking. You need to expand the food item in the inventory window to see the progress bar.
  • When filling dirt/gravel/sand bags from the ground, only 1/4 of the bag is filled each time. Submenus let you choose exactly which bag to use. Also, the player must walk next to the spot when filling a bag.

Campfires are a bit nicer. They have an actual animated fire sprite and will set the player/zombies on fire if stepped on. Light cast by the fire goes on/off as it should. Adding fuel to a campfire increases the amount of time it will burn as well as the light radius. A new file camping_fuel.lua lists the different fuel types and how much burn-time each is worth.

  • For modder's, nested Lua tables in mod data are now supported:
    • Keys may be either number or string. Only string was allowed before.
    • Values may be boolean, number, string or table. Only number and string were allowed before.
  • The game will write all of its console output to a text file ~/Zomboid/pzlog.txt in addition to the console.
  • A new OnResolutionChange event fires when the screen size changes. This is used to update the layout of the various option screens gracefully. The option screens are not so small on 1024-pixels-wide or smaller screens.
  • Zombies will (usually) wander away from a window they just climbed through. This was done to fix the jumping in/out of a window repeatedly, although that still happens sometimes.
  • Any item that can store water will now show a 'Pour on ground' context menu option. This means that bottles of Mayonnaise, bowls of soup, etc, can be emptied out.
  • Custom maps now supported. You can create a mod, put one or more custom world maps into the media/maps directory, and they will show up in the map selector screen when creating a new character. They will only show up for enabled mods. Savefiles remember which map directory the world came from, so if the mod gets uninstalled or disabled, you won't be able to play that savefile.

[BALANCE]

  • Changed things in the torch lighting, first all light source are a bit stronger (candles, lighter and torch light), plus the torch flicker is now much more realistic.

[EASTER EGGS]

  • Only a real Sir know how to moonwalk...

[TRANSLATIONS]

  • Fixed Turkish translation.

[OS X CHANGES]

  • OS X now uses Java 7, meaning you'll need OS X 10.7 or later to play. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we needed the OS X package updated to work with recent Java and OS X 10.6 and below uses Java 6. Contact Rathlord if you're using an older OS, he may be able to show you a workaround.
  • Java is now packaged with the game for OS X. Java version on computer is no longer relevant.
  • OS X can now use the Launcher
  • Mod posters now function on OS X
  • Mod sprites now function on OS X

  • This fixed : http://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php/topic/4120-bags-build-19-hotfix/

New Stuff:

  • Now sometimes spawn also empty bottle (water, whisky...) inside garbage bags (from an original idea of LeoIvanov)
  • You can now rename your bags (right click on them in your inventory, "Rename this bag").
  • Experimental PC Launcher (Issues with Mac/Linux atm) thanks Starbound! Ignore the fact you now get a Steam and Launcher option for compatibility mode, this is because that config has to be shared across all branches of the game so we can't remove the steam pop-up until we release the launcher on Steam proper or those not on this branch will no longer get it.

  • Changed a bit Saw Log : Logs are now a bit heavier, Saw Logs take more time but give you 3 planks instead of 1.
  • Added a ModData to the GameTime instance, so even when the player is dead, you can store everything inside it, it's linked to the world + Use it now for camping/weather and farming, meaning if you plow something with a player A then he died, you create a new player on the same map, your farm still remain.

  • Display a "Click to Skip" message when loading a game (not on a new one !), when the loading is done.

  • If you put a bag in a bag, the weight reduction won't apply on the bag inside the bag. (to avoid bagception exploit). So you still can put bag in bag, but it won't be infinite anymore.
  • You now can't build over existing windows/doors.
  • Left click on world item won't be grabbed instantly anymore.
  • Now bags have a capacity, meaning you can't put infinite items inside them.
    • e.g. my bag has 5 capacity and 50% weight reduction, I put a 3 weight plank inside it, so now in my main inventory this plank only weighs 1.5, but the capacity of the backpack is 3/5, meaning I can't put another plank in there.
  • Now you can't equip a weapon via hotkey while preparing an attack.
  • You can't loot from far away anymore (looting then running away).
  • Getting wet under rain, getting a cold, sneeze and stuff are back to the game !

0.2.0r or RC2.5 24th July 2012

Go to Indie Stone for full release info and download

  • NPC tweaks to hopefully make them less hopeless (though don't expect them to be Bear Grylls):
    • Why are you trying to pathfind through trees, you fools?!
    • Tweaked flee behaviour to avoid 'stand there looking stupid getting eaten' issues. Will now favour a close range pathfind instead of opposite side of map, for quicker results.
    • tweaked pathfind manager to put pathfind jobs on empty threads to reduce wait time for NPCs to get long pathing results
    • Factored in danger rating of tiles for short range fleeing.
    • Found intriguing bug where NPCs stand waiting for a pathfind to complete that's not in the system any more (must have failed or completed) no known cause yet but intriguing and may help a LOT if fixed.
    • Fixed bug with 'obtainitem' behaviour where character would go to all the buildings he plans to search before actually searching any of them.
    • NPCs no longer collide with pushable objects (for now) so they don't get stuck on them.
  • changed zombie spawn. If it still goes weird I literally have no clue what's up.
  • Fixed hammer sound glitch.(This is still not fixed)
  • Modders: ZombRand(a, b) now changed to ZombRandBetween(a,b) due to conflict issue.
  • Zombie start density closer to q levels (though a bit higher and still looking for spawn bugs)
0.2.0r RC2 29th June 2012

http://theindiestone.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=8991

  • Re-enabled character customization. (No character sprite atm though)
  • Fixed a few weapons that have issues.
  • Added frying pan as weapon properly. (no special sound yet can't seem to find a free one)
  • Fixed bug that meant some weapons never have a 'hit' frame and thus never hit zombies.
  • Planks stack once more.
  • Add 1366x768, 1920x1200 and 2560x1440 resolutions
  • Fixed issue with clip reloading. Remember HOLD R to load bullets, let go to put clip back in.
  • Fixed death anim.
  • Lowered initial zombie count. Still plenty though! Feedback welcome (It's hard since half want lots, half don't )
  • Fixed tree/door chopping (although the damage needs adjustment)
  • Fixed hordes appearing indoors.
0.2.0r RC1 29th June 2012

http://theindiestone.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=8988

  • Added new zombie sprites
  • Added New survivor sprites
  • Added new animations
  • Added new aiming mechanics
  • Added shoving with certain weapons
  • Added new stabbing combat with certain weapons
  • Removed Character customization
  • New Running system
  • Added shovel, frying pan, and pistol
  • Added 9mm ammo
  • Removed tutorial
  • Increased zombie count
  • Tweaked Knife and Axe weight
  • Axe has durability
  • Music temporarily removed
  • Still a couple of things in R not in this build, primarily the wheelie bin between cells and stopping 'lost in the woods syndrome' but they will be relatively quick to add so bear with any 'lies' on the R changelist for a day or two while we clean up any loose ends.
  • This first version will be in good ol' batch format. Soon after will add the launcher, and finally (once I figure out how it works since I didn't make it) will add the win/linux/mac installers.
  • As stated in another thread, this version does not have music. Sadly the music skipping issue became 1000x worse since the optimizations, and could barely get through the first ten seconds of a track. We'll fix this when we figure out a solution.
  • The new blood system had to be removed until it can be optimized memory / speed wise.
  • Be gentle. The game's engines have undergone a massive massive rewrite and hopefully the benefits will be obvious. Optimizations are bastards for causing bugs, and this has undergone some massive changes in the name of optimization. We may have new bugs to quash or a few teething problems on certain graphic cards.
0.2.0q 27th March 2012
  • Banished the stair death! If it is not gone (which hopefully it is) stair death should be MUCH less common now. This does not include falling from high floors through careless walking near edges, perhaps unfairly in certain buggy circumstances like missing bannisters.

As more residential areas are added these will become game start hotspots of zombies.

  • Adjustments and tweaks to Panic system.
  • Fire Animation rate fix.
  • Fire-system memory leak fixed.
  • A bug un-spotted so far with the Clock has been fixed.
  • Infection rates from zombie scratches and bites modified after _extensive_ testing.
  • Memory leak in the rain system fixed
  • Based on extensive play-testing - Fixes to incorporate the specific number of bruises, scratches, bites has been factored into the body damage calculations.
  • Bug with moodles always being shown in the lower right on Hi-Res displays is now fixed.
  • Body part status updated to reflect being on fire/burning.
  • Alcohol helps you calm down and combat the panic-state moodles and their negative effects.
  • Player can become drunk from consuming too much alcohol.
  • Drunkenness moodles added.
  • Mass mantis bug cleanup fix operation.
  • Panic only triggers when a zombie comes into view closeby, not if it wanders closeby while in view. Panic still occurs if suddenly you see a ton of zombies, but only if you're outside or the zombies are inside the same building as you.
  • Stumbling about like a buffoon when drunk.

  • Changed 'time since seen zombie' code to avoid 'permazomb music' syndrome.
  • Hallucinations cannot break down doors.
  • Indoor ambush zombies are deaf and only respond to seeing player, to avoid them thumping at doors.

0.1.4b June 10, 2011
  • Fixed ATI crash bug. We're not sure but this may cause a slight slowdown as it was an optimization that we had to remove to fix it. We'd like to hear how this affects anyone? We'll work on pulling back performance to what it was, but non-ATI owners have to admit this needed resolving fast.
  • Fixed camera bug.
  • Removed custom mouse pointers entirely, for now. Too many issues on macs and some PCs.
  • Various zombie spotting chances changed. A player not moving inside a building will rarely be seen by a zombie from outside and higher floors the chances diminish too since zombies tend to look ahead.
  • Sounds in buildings are muffled so don't travel as far outside.
  • Some horde balancing / fixes.
  • Some aiming tweaks.
  • Reduced footstep range slightly.
  • Zombie spotted music will not play if the zombies are miles away or many floors below you.
  • Made the horde prefer outdoor locations and generally ignore doors without any stimulus from inside. They will on occasion disregard this inclination, to keep you on your toes. After all if a zombie starts thumping he'll attract attention from others. ** may need tweaks **

0.1.4a June 6, 2011
  • N, E, S, W / NE, SE, SW, NW directional control toggle.
  • Inventory grows to fill vertical space of sidebar.
  • Fixed various bed related bugs. Added option to sleep to avoid accidental clicks, or to inform player why they can't.
  • Fixed pot dupe bug.
  • Fixed the death sound.
  • Planks of wood will be useable melee weapons.
  • A few stragglers aside, zombies flock together and slowly migrate around the map in one or more groups, meaning the zombie density around the map will differ massively, and this will change over time. This means that your safe-house may be left alone for some time before suddenly being in the centre of a massive shambling swarm.. This may need some balancing in future updates, but should provide more strategy to avoiding the horde.
  • Scratches have only 25% chance of infection, and you will only find out a day or more later when you get queasy if you were infected. Bites are 100%.
  • Added something little to the tutorial that was missed off due to time.
  • You survived for...
  • Bite / scratch / death sounds.
  • Uhoh! Something that'll catch people out a fair few times before they adjust their plans slightly.
  • Can barricade with hammer in your offhand. Forgetting to do this if you have wood selected and try and barricade a door, it will fail but NOT open the door to all the zombies you're trying to protect yourself against.
  • Context sensitive clicking is disabled when CTRL is held.
  • Beds can only be used when within 'open container/open door' range.
  • Skipping tutorial will retain the 'safe zone' until you venture out, to make it a way of skipping the tutorial without punishing the player, making it a more attractive option.
  • Experimental - Raised day length from 15 minutes to 20 minutes, now that there is the ability to fast forward. Doubled the speed of fast forward (CPU dependent).
  • Food / pills can be eaten by putting them on the heart icon, in analog to putting things in inventory.
  • Couches / sofas can be slept on.
  • Eating / pill popping no longer clears item from mouse. So eating multiple is just multiple clicks.
  • Restarting after death. Will skip front end and load the map again immediately. May cause obscure 'second playthrough' bugs from restart we'll have to deal with as they become apparent. May also be pushing it for memory on lower end PCs if the old map hasn't been garbage collected in time.
  • The heart icon does a little wiggle (like the moodles) when you sustain injuries, as a reminder that you might need to tend to some new ailment.
  • Mouse hotspot offset removed on Mac until proper cursors are working.
  • Options file saved in lwjgl cache with game resolution. For those Mac users that need a different res for offline. Will have no effect when played in the browser.
  • Random buildings / doors will be locked and only openable from the inside. Fire axe can attack doors. (Well everything can but most are ineffectual)
  • Craftable full-tile barricades made from 2 plank + 2 nails + hammer. Exact #'s still to balance.
  • Smashed doors either by player or by zombie yield some planks to pick up.
  • Game pause/resume and speed control buttons on the hud.
0.1.3a May 31, 2011
  • Fixed invisible wife / running bug.
  • Mousewheel support for inventory
  • Rudimentary joypad control. Movement/attack/door interaction. This will be ongoing and it'll be a while before the entire game is playable purely with a joypad. Press A button to activate pad. Left thumb = sneak, walk, run. Right thumb = moonwalk/look around. Right bumper (on Xbox pad) = attack, A to interact with doors / containers. Compatibility on mac / different gamepads unknown.
0.1.2a May 29, 2011
  • Added 'speed up time' button (return) that will (PC power dependent) speed time up by a factor of ten. Useful for skipping cut-scenes, waiting out a night when not tired, or doing Benny Hill impressions.
  • Tweaked zombie numbers to make it less immediately punishing. Days are now safer for longer, without sacrificing the danger of nights.
  • Added arrow keys / right shift / control keys as alternates to WASD
  • Lowered zombie path-finding range
  • Made zombies have a chance of getting 'bored' banging doors and investigate other zombie sounds, thus making it feasible to wait out zombies at the door if they don't break it down in time and you make no further sounds.
  • Added tutorial skip option that we're somewhat ashamed of thinking of and will probably become infamous. You'll see.
  • Fixed Kate's dragged / dead frames which weren't working .
  • Fixed infinite ammo bug.
  • Player's footsteps now make sound audible to zombies. to compensate for this zombies have less peripheral vision.
  • Double click to add to inventory.
  • Repaired moodlets for bleeding, injury, pain etc.
  • ESC skips dialogue for current conversation entirely.
  • Potential fix to lag issues. Not definite or even probable but possible.
  • Space will now open inventory and holding it will stop it from closing.
  • RTS style control groups for equipped items. Shift+Ctrl+ 1-9 will store the current equipped items for that hotkey. Pressing 1-9 after will recall them if they are in your inventory. (shift + control is because you use control in battle so using ctrl alone would lead to accidental overwrites)
  • Ctrl click will drop an entire stack into a container straight away instead of one by one.
  • If you walk away from a container while holding one of its items on your mouse pointer, when it shuts the container it will add the item to your inventory and keep it on your pointer, instead of removing the item from your pointer.
  • Some balancing of item weights.
  • Improved moodle effects.
  • Added 'encumbered' moodle.
  • Bandages now stop health loss completely for that body part (until proper medical attention is in via NPCs/Skills)
  • Pain threshold reduced to better warn of scratches etc.
  • Increased wall transparency range.
  • Line of sight now works when zombified.
