I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation. I actually named my daughter after the Pink ranger and will provide proof if challenged.


Used tailoring to fit an ANBC suit I looted off a zombie. Its pretty fantastic. Dropped my ESAPI vest due to encumbrance penalty though but the ANBC excellent overall coverage should be superior I think.

You can use 'C' -> yell a few times to get moose to flee. They are still comically dangerous though lol

A full set of survivor fire gear is 100% coverage and has great environmental protection but it will it keep radiation out?

I would say oats are one of the most valuable, because they can be processed into a variety of foods including the very calorie-rich and long-lasting oatmeal, as well as a few others. Grains are always worth growing, especially ones with quick planting times. Berries are useful as they serve as fruits for most recipes like jams and other sometimes difficult results. Beyond that any large-volume vegetable should be fine, potatos and pumpkins are pretty versatile but the latter don't keep very long.
Thanks! This goes along the line that I was feeling out already

Light nomad gear is a bit better in that regard, yes. But the normal nomad suit has 40 warmth on torso/arms/legs and it's a huge pain to do stuff outside of cold temperatures. Speaking about stable btw


Also a zombie just dropped the anarchist manual so I can finally make the electrohack and crack the ton of safes I marked on my map :toot:

Check the description - it should say something like "it will protect you from radiation" (See Hazmat suits to see what this looks like). From what I remember, survivor gear will help you against acid but not radiation.

Nope. Anti radiation gear has one of two specific tags (RAD_PROOF and RAD_RESIST) that will show up in the description text under the item stats.

http://cdda-trunk.chezzo.com/flags/RAD_RESIST

E: Power armor is radiation proof too but I think itís hard coded because I donít see a tag for it.

Moose are one of those things that I stay faaaaar away from unless and only if I'm carrying a shotgun and even then only if I'm hurting for food. If you see it indicated on the map, steer away from it same as you would a Brute or Mi-Go.

Fear the Dread Moose.

occasionally a moose will attack a zombie, get slapped in the face and than its over. That moose has moose rabies and will not stop till everything in the world is loving dead.

I found a fully intact one in a garage once complete with golf clubs, which lead to me becoming 'clubs mckenzie, pro golfer' for about thirty minutes before I was torn apart dropping down off the wrong gutter into a swarm of pissed off children.

For what it's worth, in one of Vormithrax's more recent video, he commented that he didn't think shouting scared moose anymore.

On the up side, they won't spontaneously aggro on the player anymore unless it's mating season (late(?) fall). If something else attacks them, though, moose IFF leaves much to be desired.

Apparently the heavy rail rifle isn't craftable in experimental builds now? At least I haven't gotten the recipe after hitting all the skill levels I thought I needed.

Not that I need it what with the massive aftershock Ion Cannon, laser battle rifle and literal Barrett Light 50 sitting in my APC's holds, but it's the thought that counts

I'm doing base building - if I want to use things like a vehicle mini-fridge and RV Kitchen unit, does it make sense to use the vehicle system to build an enclosed wheel-less "vehicle" to use a house and slap some solar panels on top?
Are there any drawbacks to that? Does it interact weirdly with NPCs?

The drawbacks I had when I was setting up a static base is that you canít drag carts inside a vehicle and cargo carriers hold a tiny amount of loot compared to a display rack. I used to set up combo vehicle/houses by exploiting the fact you can build vehicle tiles through empty door frames.

Have some crappy ASCII art because Iím not by my computer. W is a wall, V is a vehicle tile, R is a display rack, and D is a door. The vehicle tile on the 2nd row is built over an empty door frame. It needs to be a vehicle board to enclose the house or you can get fancy and make it a windshield with a remote operated curtain. The vehicle tiles on the 3rd row are fridges, welders, whatever you donít need to be next to to use. 4th row is a cargo carrier with a battery charger. 5th row is a seat with controls, a water faucet, etc. Everything within the walls is roofed, the vehicle tiles on the outside can have solar panels.

This is what I got going on in my hideout right now. Its a frame that goes out into the open air in the south with 2 upgraded solar panels with a storage battery. Below that is a funnel with a 100L barrel. Above the panels is an outdoor welding rig. Looping up into the building is a kitchen unit. Left of that is 2 minifridges, The leftmost minifridge has a water faucet and a water purifier. North of that is an aisle with lights. North of that is a 200L barrel of purified water. Below the minifridge is another welding rig for crafting indoors and below that is a recharging station.

What even is their aesthetic? breaking changes every 2 weeks? OK, good to know. Will have to keep an eye out for the mod that brings that recipe back in whenever. Hurling around rebar with something that you built up from a box of scraps ala Tony Stark is one of the things that I thought really differentiated this game from other roguelikes.

In theory the turret should have had a 1-turn delay on firing the first time it sees you, giving you enough time to flee up the stairs again.
