Knox County is a fictional area in America where Project Zomboid is set. It takes place within the city of Muldraugh, Kentucky. The main map is currently divided in 4 quadrants with another off-grid map which contains randomly generated forests and the newly added Well.
The Suburbs was originally the only explorable area of Knox County, until the addition of the Forest in 0.2.0. Currently, it contains 22 buildings of varying sizes, from small one-room shacks to shops and houses. There's at least one warehouse and multiple shops, while the rest are houses. The Suburbs are currently located in the Northwestern quadrant of the main map.
Not to be confused with the off-grid Forest, these small Woods are located in the Southwestern quadrant of the main map. In the southwest part of this quadrant is a 2 story house with a Barn beside it. In the northwest part of this quadrant is a small woodcutter shack which often contains carpentry tools and you can easily access the suburbs through the path north of it.
Located in the Northeastern quadrant is a luxurious set of 6 Villas, containing each 1 garage, 1 big kitchen, 2 bathrooms on each floors and 3 bedrooms. An ideal getaway for building a nice fortress as many trees surround the Villas like a protective barrier. In the southern part of this quadrant is also a small Fast Food Restaurant.
Containing mostly shops and office buildings, the Downtown District is located in the Southeastern quadrant. A perfect sector for quick supply runs. The most important buildings in this quadrant is the game's second storage Warehouse and the big Restaurant right next to it.
The Northern Highway
Northwest from the Villas is the Northern Highway. Entering this area brings you to a different map cell. This long road stretches for many cells, but in the first cell on the left side of the road there will be a small farm house. If you continue on the Northern Highway to the second cell you will come across an opening to a dirt path. That dirt path leads you to another map cell and to a large farm filled with wheat fields, small shacks, a well, and a barn.
The Forest was the second explorable area of Knox County. It contains about six hundred trees and a farmhouse in the center. The farmhouse contains no materials but houses some survivors.
