Overview

Valley Station is a large, spread out town located on the southern outskirts of Louisville. It is based on the real-life Valley Station, Louisville. Dixie Hwy (Route 31W) runs through the west section of Valley Station. The Crossroads Mall can also be found in Valley Station. While Valley Station mainly consists of various rural neighborhoods, farmsteads, and cabins, the central commercial district contains various places that often contain valuable supplies.

Valley Station is an overall difficult town to survive in. The zombie population tends to be rather high, especially for a rural area, and very spread out over large distances, including into the nearby forests and fields. Using vehicles can often result in back roads becoming swarmed from zombies exiting the trees and fields nearby, and the Crossroads Mall is infamous for the large zombie population it contains. Zombies may also wander into empty cells from Louisville as well via the migration mechanic, making Valley Station even more dangerous. Despite all this, most valuable loot is sparse, and many players consider Valley Station to have the worst zombie-to-loot ratio in all of Knox Country.

Districts

Valley Station can be divided into two districts.

Residential

The west and northeast of town are dominated by two large residential districts that mainly consist of various fields, forests, small neighborhoods, and rural farmsteads. The zombie population in these areas is high, and there is not much in terms of loot other than the occasional grocery store or house.

Commercial

The central commercial district is also very spread out, and consists of the Crossroads Mall and its surrounding stores, as well as a few other businesses and a warehouse to the north. The zombie population is highly condensed around the mall, but is also high in most other areas, as Valley Station has a very consistently high amount of zombies.

Strategy

  • Similarly to Muldraugh, the greatest danger in Valley Station is becoming exhausted. It is highly recommended to not solely rely on melee weapons in this town, despite the large population of zombies. Characters with low overall weapon skills or low fitness will struggle to survive in Valley Station.
  • It is not possible to spawn in Valley Station without the use of mods. If venturing here from another town, always bring extra supplies.
  • It is highly recommended to bring large amounts of firearms, high quality melee weapons, such as pickaxes or shovels, and repair materials from other towns, as loot, especially weapons, is sparse in Valley Station, and often surrounded by a sizable zombie population.
  • Fire Bombs and molotovs are highly effective in Valley Station due to the low density of loot rich buildings. This means that these weapons can be used with a much lower risk of burning valuable loot to the ground.
  • It is highly recommended to set up an outpost somewhere in town or on the outskirts before venturing further in, in order to give the player a space to rest, cook, and perform weapon repairs securely and without fear of large numbers of zombies.
  • It might be a good idea to skip most of Valley Station entirely and head directly to Louisville if the player is interested in large amounts of loot. Louisville has significantly more loot compared to the amount of zombies present.
  • The forests of Valley Station are not safe areas. Zombies frequently spawn or wander into the forests nearby.
