  1. I like this idea due to the fact that if you improve the mechanics of the weapons, you will vastly improve the overall game experience for all modes. Who is to say, with the proper scope on a SMG set to single fire, you can't have almost the same chance of a good hit as a sniper. This will also improve the overall game experience. Too many times I've fired a weapon, only to have the shot go flying off in an almost 90° angle from where I was aiming. I don't believe that buffing certain assault rifles if you improve their hit box. and IMO, nerfing the snipers might be a mistake. This is an idea that I've been bouncing around the forums for a while. Only, instead of trading them, have a vending machine, like in the Trade Lounges, so players can 'sell' their excess inventory at a reduced rate. I'd say players would receive between a 10% - 15% below the available price in the Marketplace. (Of course you could even make it a higher deduction but nothing over 25%.) I have heard about a sort of 'black market' on discord for buying and selling items for GC for items available in Survival. Since there is currently no currency in Survival, this is circumventing the system that is set up. There are only 2 ways players should be able to acquire items in Survival. Farming and Trading. (I know this comment will be very unpopular but it needs to be addressed) This could make for a more even playing field. If you are wearing top of the line armor and helmet, you should be better protected. @Sven, I am going to leave this one alone. You and I have had a number of conversations about it. You know what I think so, nuff said. As you said, these are just some of my ideas. I also like the idea of improved weapon mechanics. Here's a thought, maybe, after the weapons are improved, you guys can work on improved mechanics for vehicles? (Sorry, I couldn't resist the temptation) Overall, I agree with what you have said @Sven. Have a Nice Day!!!
  2. I find it interesting that you chose to reply to a post I made on the 16th rather than the more recent one. Again, I point out that although you may have 'improved' the loot from the Alien in your perspective, to others, as you can see, the so-called 'improvement' is negligible. They are still dropping the occasional item that is among the most common available. And, as far as the Toxic, is having it drop an Adventure Backpack, or a Heavy Armor an improvement? That is debatable. You see, both those items are found everywhere. Why would we chase one down, only to harvest loot we can more easily acquire elsewhere? I can surmise that any player who has been in the game for 6 months or more has an abundance of these items. Myself, I have well over 1000 of both in my inventory. I also find it interesting that you want to 'see what the rest of the team thinks'. In the past, that has meant no to any changes that we, the community, ask for. I'm sure you can see that I am not alone with this thought. The standard answers are, 'I will discuss it with the team', 'We are working on that', 'Only Fred can fix that' and the ever popular, 'I don't have time because of other things'. Oh well. Looks like just another idea/request will go by the wayside. So sad. Aftermath started it's death spiral in much the same way. No matter, I have other games to play. I spend more time on games on my PlayStation. At least you know what to expect with them. If I want to drive a car, I can be certain that I will not get disconnected from the game. I would also like to address the radiation zones themselves. The gas masks do enough to hinder our vision. This is even more troubling when it is nighttime. We are all but blinded to what is going on around us. Unless you have a good working knowledge of the area you are in, you are basically at a major disadvantage. Again I suggest you allow us to wear NVG in conjunction with any and all masks and hats. If you must present a lower perspective of the surrounding area, I would suggest, instead of all but totally blocking our view, you change the area to reflect more of a greenish hue. BTW, there still has been no response to comments about the insensitive language that is used in the game and with certain character names. Have a Nice Day!!! OH and, Play Nice!!!
  3. Ok. Here is my critique of this event. 1) The Alien loot has improved slightly, however they still drop helmets and armor. This needs to stop. 2) I got the chance to kill 2 Toxic Supers. Both appeared at the same time. I was a bit excited at the prospect of having better loot. The first one I killed, which took 500 rounds to kill dropped 1 ADVENTURE BACKPACK. I was shocked. Again, all that effort and all that ammo spent and only 1 item. Then I proceeded to kill the second one. Guess what. All I got for my trouble was 1 Heavy Armor. 1000 rounds total and all I came away with was 2 items? And neither of those were higher tier weapons? You really didn't improve the Toxic. It's still dropping junk. Backpacks and Armor are a big waste of ammo. They both can be easily found just laying on the ground in other locations. Once again, when I killed a Super I got 8 pieces of loot which consisted of 4 helmets and 1 armor. Sad. People talk about the game economy. After this event I would have to say it's in poor condition. I had high expectations for this event @Sven. Sadly, it fell far short of those expectations. After re-reading the statement from you above, I realize that neither the Alien or the Toxic zombies are going to get any better and are not worth the time to pursue. Besides the fact that the very minimal improvement in the Alien loot, it will no doubt revert to what it was. Oh, and over the weekend, I was subjected to getting booted out of the game when I tried to enter my vehicle. This should have been addressed and fixed MONTHS ago. The grade for this event on a scale of A to F (F being a failing grade) I give it an F-. Have a Nice Day!!!
  4. It's not an exaggeration. It's a fact. One normal radiation zombie dropped 2 PKM heavy machine guns. I know that normally they only drop one PKM ammo box. It was a big surprise to me. I thought that maybe, just maybe, @Steve actually followed through with his statement that he could update the loot drops live without having to wait for an update. It was right after that that the Toxic Super dropped 1 Heavy Armor.
  5. Amen to that @JKS. The loot imbalance for both the Toxic and Alien have been horrible for far too long. @Sven thanks for listening about this. It was sad when a regular zombie dropped better loot than the Toxic Super (2 PKM heavy machine guns for the regular zombie compared to 1 Heavy Armor from the Toxic Super) in a radiation zone. And, like @JKS said, I hope this is a permanent improvement instead of just a weekend thing.
  6. Maybe you have a point. However, adding trees in ridiculous places so the branches protrude THROUGH solid objects is crazy. Also, trees do NOT grow in the middle of roads. As far as improving the look of that game, that is debatable. You call having trees with branches so low that they extend INTO the ground an improvement? It just serves to clutter an already over burdened system. The more you add to the terrain the more un-optimized it becomes. The overall performance suffers and you have spikes in the FPS like you had this past weekend. An over abundance of anything is bad. Look at all the threads that address the loot. Plus, as of yet, none of the admins have addressed my last paragraph dealing with language and harassment. In case you forgot what I said... I guess I have to learn to deal with the fact that the PVP side of the game takes precedent over the rest but the language and innuendo are still problems that need to be addressed. You may not like what I'm saying much of the time. However, a lot of what I'm saying is being echoed by others in their own way. Just think of all the players in the game that never venture into this forum. Think of the treatment they encounter. Maybe to some being called 'noob' is nothing but that is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak. Those that do not venture into the forums and just get fed up by the verbal abuse they have to go through leave. The in game reporting system is still useless as far as I'm concerned. As is repeatedly asking players to 'take a screenshot' or 'make a video'. I used to take screenshots and post them but eventually nothing got done about what I was presenting. Those that post videos depicting what they deem as cheating is mostly just brushed aside as a 'perspective' type issue. Any and All things presented, either in the in game reporting feature, on this forum, or on discord should be answered in a timely manner. What happened to the live stream you used to present? Were the questions presented there too difficult to answer?
  7. First of all, thank you for finally responding. When I talk about issues that have been around for 1-2 years, I'm talking about things like broken vehicles, horrible loot drops, system boots, FPS that goes wild (I had a 1400 FPS over the past weekend and my game was locked in a similar manner to what @Katryna247 reported to tech support.) Now, this only occurred once for me, but she had hardly any access for much of the weekend. I also understand that you are not going to take every suggestion I present and implement it. That is not my point here. The main point is the lack of participation of the staff. I can take no for an answer. However, no answer of any sort is far worse than a no answer. @Sven is a trooper. He takes the heat for just about every negative issue that is presented here. He doesn't get enough credit for the effort that he does put forth. However, he is not the only admin/developer connected with this game. He is simply the only one that takes the critical comments and pushes forward. My point here is, share the responsibility to respond to our posts. There's an old saying 'Many hands make light work'. We get frustrated when we try to help by pointing out what we perceive as problems and get no response. It's just as bad for us to see short replies that do not address our issues. Some people feel like they are being treated unfairly thus you see the language take a derogatory turn. (This issue is especially bothersome to me. We are told to keep the dialog respectful. However, we see very disrespectful language directed at us in the in game text chat, that we report using the in game report feature, and nothing ever gets done about it.) Another example of the poor response from the support staff. We are even told that 'You have to understand that this occurs in video games' and to just 'ignore it'. Or we hear, 'Oh, it's just part of the game'. Racial slurs, Sexual innuendo, blatant foul language that is disguised by U$ing special characters, and homophobic comments should not be a part of ANY aspect of the game. That includes character names, server names, in game chat whether that be on discord, on the in game voice chat and the in game text chat, and posts in this forum. I hope that you mean EVERYONE'S feedback. I am not the only one posting here. However, I am one of the few that will call you out when things that are broken do not get fixed in a timely manner or at least acknowledged that you are working on it. And reporting that it is either fixed, or it's beyond the scope of what you are able to do and tell us so. BE HONEST. Communicating goes a long way to keeping us engaged in the game. You all have a mostly thankless job. When you hide, you magnify the negative feelings we, the gaming community, have toward you. I hope this helps explain what I'm talking about. There have been some new members of the forum that have presented issues they see. Acknowledge their input. Keep the community engaged.
  8. Yes. I'm talking about the Toxic green zombies. I honestly can't see how you or the other Developers and/or Admins weren't aware of this. This is not my first post on this issue. Plus, there have been other members of this forum that have tried bringing this to your attention. (Again, when I say YOUR I'm talking about everyone on your staff that is responsible for responding to comments, issues, complaints, reports and the like. For example, Of course, these are just 2 examples related to this subject. You cannot expect the gaming community to be happy when issues like these and so many others are either brushed aside, not answered, or given the answer of 'I understand and will bring this up in the next meeting. All those that are responsible for repairing issues that happen should be checking this forum DAILY. By not doing that, you are letting really good, loyal gamers like myself to become so frustrated with poor game quality that they eventually leave. For myself, I'm like a dog with a bone. I'm going to keep chewing on it till there's nothing left. Unfortunately, there is less and less of that 'bone' left to chew with this game. I haven't made almost 600 posts here because I like posting. I'm doing my level best to point out issues that I see so they can be addressed in a timely manor and fixed. It's up to you the staff of Infestation: The New Z to see to it that these problems are fixed. @Fred, @ElChupacabra, @3lias, become active and take some of the heat off @Sven. BECOME MORE ACTIVE!! DO SOMETHING TO HELP WITH IMPROVING THE GAME!! COME OUT OF HIDING AND TALK TO THE PARTICIPANTS OF THIS FORUM!!! We're actually a really nice group of people. We don't bite, well, for the most part. We may get frustrated and long winded at times. We may even lose our tempers and rant and rave and even YELL!! It's not done to be disrespectful or hurtful, it's because WE CARE ABOUT THIS GAME and WANT TO SEE IT THRIVE AND GROW!! Oh, and please, Please, PLEASE... Motivate the support staff to do more than just give the standard answers for reports they receive. If someone is having a problem, HELP THEM FIX IT. Some of us try to help by answering questions for newer members of this forum. WE CARE!!! SO SHOULD YOU!!! Here is just one example: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8210-super-zombies/ It's easy when you really care about what happens with the game.

    No problem. Glad I could help.

    super zombies

    It's actually game time but you got the idea now. Have Fun!!!
  11. CampersRUs

    super zombies

    What it means is, if you stay in one spot, you will see a Super zombie every 30m to 1.5 hours. That is not the time they will spawn, it's the time frame that they respawn. Supers spawn day and night.
  12. CampersRUs

    super zombies

    You seem to be talking about the Alien zombie. 2200 = 10 pm so they spawn between 10 pm and 4 am game time. There are multiple locations that the Alien spawns. There are 2 that I know of just in Nato Airforce Base. Another spawns in Death Valley. There are also spawn locations in Boulder City, Campos City and Ridgeway Airport. There are other spawns but I don't remember where they are. Have some fun and explore a lot of different locations. Super zombies spawn all day and night.
  13. @Sven, it's very nice that you finally responded to @Katryna247's issue. My question to you is, what is the reason you have not responded to my posts? When I say 'YOU' I'm talking about any of the Admins and/or Developers.
  14. CampersRUs

    super zombies

    If you are talking about Super zombies, (the big white zombie) they spawn in the time frame you said, 24 hours of the day. The Alien zombie (the Blood Red one that appears black due to the effect of night vision goggles) only spawns after dark, usually only once between 2200 and 0400. It will very rarely spawn twice in that time period.
  15. After playing what I would call a mediocre weekend event, I decided to go to a radiation area and give it another shot. I was kind of bored so I thought it would bring a little more excitement to the game. When I arrived I was confronted with the usual irradiated zombies and killed a few. They dropped the usual loot they drop which is PKM ammo. Then, I was confronted by a regular Super zombie. It took a little more ammo than usual to kill him but he dropped some decent loot. By decent I mean NO helmets or armor. Then I found an Irradiated Super and attacked him. As usual, it took an extra amount of ammo to kill him. After he was dead, I was shocked to see that he had dropped only 1 SVD. I searched the spot because some items drop into the ground but the SVD was the only loot found. Then, to my surprise, I heard a second Irradiated Super. I lured him to where I was and proceeded to kill him. I was ASTOUNDED to see that he had dropped only 1 HEAVY ARMOR!!! I again searched the area and found NOTHING ELSE!!! What The Hell!!! @Steve, In another thread you were approached about improving and changing loot because of the junk that drops. You stated that 'It will be easy. I can change the loot live so I don't have to wait for an update to do it' Why did you tell that person you can do it, when in reality, you don't have any plan on doing it? Lying to a player about what you can do is worse than not answering at all. Which brings me to my next issue. Why have none of the developers answered the points I made with the post I have linked here? Is it that you don't want to respond to comments that are other than complimentary? Wait, I think I know what your answer is going to be. 'I'm so busy doing other things I don't have time' OR 'I'll bring this up in the next meeting and see what everyone says about it' OR you just don't give a damn. In the link below, I tried presenting some issues as precisely as possible in an adult, polite manner. So much for diplomacy. Yes, the post may be in the wrong thread. I was just following the thought that was presented in the thread. Besides, the issue presented affects ALL game modes, not just survival. http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8185-another-unnecessary-suggestions/&do=findComment&comment=42808 If you think that ignoring what I have been trying to point out is going to get me frustrated and just drop the issues, you are sadly mistaken. If anything, it's going to irritate me more and you will hear it more and more. Bottom Line here guys, You are doing little to nothing to fix some issues that have been ongoing for well over a year. Some for longer than 2 years. You want to keep this game relevant. You want to keep making money. You want the players to be happy. Well, unless you stop sidestepping issues that are hurting the overall enjoyment of the game, you will end up with nothing. I know I've said this before. But it bares repeating. And NO, I'm not speaking for just the PVE side. I'm speaking for ALL the players and modes. Since you have little to not separation between the modes, what issues presented here effect ALL GAME MODES. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!
