conspiracy crap??? is a unique VHS providing lore to Project Zomboid, referencing the Military Research Facility.

Overview

The player can reduce boredom by -5 for each line of dialog when in the vicinity of a television playing the VHS.

The VHS can be used with an appropriate television to play the dialog of what appears to be a conspiracy theorist's home recording.

Transcript

Theorist:

We all know the US military lies about UFOs, the Philadelphia Experiment...
...and the reasons for the new HAARP project...
...but did you know there's a secret laboratory right here in Kentucky?
For years an area in the middle of the forest to the west of Rosewood...
...has been marked on maps as a "restricted area".
Accessible only by a series of purposely inconspicuous dirt roads...
...the true purpose of this facility is unknown.
We do know that, for years, the Muldraugh area has been the subject...
...of mysterious military testing.
Mass livestock deaths, strange tastes from faucet water...
...and foul smells in the air have all been noticed locally.
Just what is going on in this lab?
Who are the mysterious personnel who travel...
...to the lab in the early hours of the morning?
Are there hidden underground facilities?
A tunnel to Area 51? Headquarters for the Majestic 12?
We have no way of knowing. The Army will never tell the truth...
...and the mystery continues...

Distribution

The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
Containers

livingroom shelves 10.78%

This VHS will only spawn once and only in living room shelves, making it incredibly rare.

Trivia

  • The tape mentions the stench in the air noticed locally in Muldraugh. This might indicate that the tape was recorded only weeks or 1 month before the Project Zomboid events started.
