  1. Yeah... RIGHT. I see that Sven finally had enough and left. Now who is going to be the voice of reason? Steve? The man that tells members that they should 'stop lying' and takes items away that players PAID REAL MONEY FOR? He is nothing more than an arrogant idiot that thinks he knows how to interact with people. Even worse, he thinks he is the only one that knows what is best for a game in this genre. Over the past 3 years, there have been literally hundreds of excellent suggestions for content and game play that would have, not only enhanced the game itself, but would have been instrumental in this game thriving today instead of those few that are still playing in hopes that someone with some common sense DOES SOMETHING TO MAKE THIS GAME BETTER. The Midievel event was a major dud. Yes, there was a fire in a server room. But my question is, If this were actually true, why didn't one of the staff make an announcement in these forums about it? Plus, the servers for the PVE players had so few zombies to kill, it was extremely difficult to gain any experience. And then there was the issue of, if you were near the end of a mission and suddenly got disconnected from the server, all your mission progress was WIPED CLEAN. The issue with so few zombies was, if there were actually 50 players that joined in, there would be virtually NO ZOMBIES OR LOOT left to collect. The car issue is not the only one that has plagued this game for well over a year. How about the fact that boulders appeared in places for no apparent reason, trees are placed so branches protrude through solid walls and are actually placed INSIDE buildings, in the middle of roads and inside an RV, and zombies are now allowed to spawn at bus stops. (this includes the new Slicer) I'm only one voice in the hundreds that have, in the past, pointed out issues that kill this game. I bring this to the attention of ALL PLAYERS and ADMINS. Not to try to destroy this game, (you, the admins and developers are doing a fine job of that all on your own) but to try to, one more time, appeal to you to bring this game up to the level of it's potential. I know you are trying to run a business and make money, however, as I have said many times in the past. 'If you have a rusted out bucket of bolts for a vehicle, give it a shiny new paint job with pretty decals and new seats and expensive tires and wheels, but do nothing to repair the motor, all you will end up with is a pretty piece of junk that looks pretty as all hell, but is still a piece of junk.' All I have left to say is this. 'If you want to keep this game going and have it grow, HIRE A DAMN PROGRAMMER THAT KNOWS WHAT THE HELL HE'S DOING!!!'
  2. @3lias, If @Steve doesn't 'own' any servers, maybe you can explain this...
  3. Well @3lias, this has turned out to be a nothing event. I'll give you an example. On Saturday, everytime I tried to log in I got the message, 'There are no servers available in your area' This was for Colorado V2 PVE Server US. (which, I found out is supposedly owned by @Steve) I'll get into that in a minute. For today, I tried 8 times to log in. 4 times I got the message, Disconnected from the server. 4 times I got the message 'Failed to join game, your previous session hasn't closed yet. Please try again. What the hell is going on? How can you have an event when nobody can join in? BTW, All 8 times there was nobody in the server. Now, about @Steve, I don't know what happened but Every locker was wiped from the above mentioned server. When I messaged about it I was told, 'Well, I posted it on Discord and FB. I do NOT nor will I EVER use either of those platforms. I rely on THIS FORUM. I mentioned that to him and he basically said, 'Sorry, I only post it on those two outlets.' This is total BS. I know I lost about 28 GI Access Lockers, lord only knows how many lockers others lost. The reasoning he gave was 'poor performance'. This is a joke. After the wipe, my FPS was still in the red, the feed would freeze, and a few times when I tried to play, I was disconnected. It's my opinion that, as long as Steve has any connection to this game, it will not be successful. He is too self-centered. He doesn't care about the player base at all. If he does, in fact, 'own' the 100 slot servers, I surmise that he is not paying for them. I figured I'd wait for the big Midevel event and give it one more shot. At this point, with not being able to even log in to a server, I am done. I know I've said it before, but this time is it. I spent real money purchasing those lockers only to be told is so many words. 'That's too bad for you.' Have a nice life @3lias. Good luck trying to keep this game running.
  4. Oh, I forgot to mention. You won't have to see many more of my posts exposing the weaknesses of this game. I only have 5 days left on my private server. After that, it's all in your hands. If you apply yourself properly, you can save it. Otherwise, this game will die. Your staff list has already dwindled to a bare minimum with many of those remaining not posting anything in these forums. Your own reluctance to respond to not only mine, but many of the other members that actually give a damn about this game. As for me, I may or may not play every day of my remaining 5 days. Like I have stated so many times before. I have many other avenues to entertain myself. Many of the games I've gone back to playing are quite old, but yet, they still function the way they are supposed to. Cars drive like cars, bullets still travel in the trajectory they are fired, grenades actually go where you throw them, and, in forested areas, it looks like a forest instead of a gigantic shrubbery field with 50' tall bushes that have branches that cover the ground and protrude through walls. Oh, and the enemy, whether it be zombies or a hostile army, do NOT no-clip through solid objects. And you are actually able to walk up a curb and climb stairs without having to jump. Food for thought.
  5. I finally took the time to kill a Slicer. Wow. Was it tough? Sure. Was it worth the expenditure of ammo? Hardly. the best piece of loot it dropped was a karambit. And why in hell are you all so fixated on having everything drop heavy armor and helmets? Even the rare locked room has nothing but standard loot to offer. I about fell off my chair laughing when I opened one and saw the six item boxes. What a big disappointment when I picked them up. Again with the helmets and armor and regular automatic weapons. Oh sure, you toss in an occasional sniper but it's not really worth the effort you have to put forth to gain entry. Also, why don't you post the locations of these rooms? It's not like they are a special event. They are part of the game now. After all this time you should be able to do a much better job of keeping players interested in all aspects of the game, not just PVP and Battle Royal. Beyond those to parts, all you do is run around a stale map killing zombies. The fun has long since turned to boredom. Maybe a total wipe isn't such a bad idea.
  6. So, I've seen you mention a new vehicle a couple time now. My thing about that is, WHY?????? The vehicle system is just about back to where it was before you supposedly fixed it. Vehicles are back to flipping and flying through the air. What makes it bad is the fact that you can only place a vehicle with it pointing north. When driving off road, the tree limbs are so damn low to the ground that you cannot see anything in front of you. And when the vehicle leaves the ground and goes sailing through the air, it decelerates. When it lands it has to build up speed again. And the fact that you said that 'Now you can adjust the vehicle in mid-air to land squarely on the ground' is a joke. As far as I'm concerned, the vehicle system is as bad, if not worse than it was before you 'fixed' it. If you are indeed going to introduce a new vehicle, FIX THE BROKEN SYSTEM BEFORE YOU INTRODUCE IT.
  7. So you fixed the issue of the heli-crash not spawning on private servers. Good for you. Now that it is actually spawning I have one question. What is the purpose of the heli-crash spawn? All that spawns is the same junk loot that is common everywhere on the map. I thought there would be something special. Like maybe a key for a secret room? Yet another addition that was hyped as something special. All we got was more of the same. It's just like why do Super and Alien zombies still drop helmets and armor? And why does the Toxic zombie drop fewer items than the other 2? Just makes no sense at all.
  8. I played about 4-5 hours yesterday and still no helicopter crash appeared. Also, no slicer spawned in the same period of time.
  9. @3lias, @Fred, @Sven, @Steve, @ElChupacabra Please Read This. Another couple of thoughts crossed my mind. In order to get a regular key, you have to kill a Slicer. Well, for a solitary player, playing on a private server, there are 2 basic problems. 1) The Slicer doesn't spawn with any regularity. 2) And more importantly, When you do encounter a Slicer as a single player, you stand a very slim chance of killing one. I have tried 3 times and failed each time I made the attempt. It's not because I don't have enough ammo, it's just that the Slicer is extremely difficult and has what seems to be an unlimited area. These factors make it virtually impossible for a solitary player, like myself, to obtain the regular key. I also noticed that playing solo on a private server, the Helicopter never appears. I played for 5 hours straight on Sunday. Not once did the crash appear. I tried playing on a popped server, but by the time you reach the crash site, someone is already there guarding the site like they own it. These things together take all the fun out of playing. Without being able to obtain the regular key, you cannot advance to the special key. Add to this the fact that the servers are becoming more and more unstable. Even in a private server with me being the only one in it. You run along, the screen freezes for a few seconds, then you continue. Also, when exiting a vehicle with zombies present, the screen freezes when you try to pick up the vehicle. Come on guys, you've been at this long enough. These things should not be happening. In the 3 years I have been playing, the same old problems keep recurring. Get with the program guys. I'm trying to be supportive but it is getting very old.
  10. Thank you very much @An4rchy. I appreciate the information.
  11. Personally I don't, and never will, understand why they insist on playing 'Hide & Seek' with the locked rooms. Also, I have been playing all weekend and not once have I come across either a helicopter crash site, or a slicer. I did finally find the 2 locked rooms at Lonetree Farm and Emerald Peak Resort. Only question I have now is, where are the regular locked rooms located?
  12. Ummm @Sven, I have a bit of bad news for you and your team. This issue has not been fixed in it's entirety. It seems you only focused on the 64-bit side of the game. I switched to the 32-bit because, while playing the game in 64-bit mode, it was playing in a very 'choppy' manner. In other words, there was a stutter whenever I approached an area populated by zombies. Much in the same way as I described when talking about the issue addressed here. However, in the 64-bit mode, it didn't throw the vehicle into the air and disconnect me. However, upon switching to the 32-bit mode to see if the problem was lessened, it was not. I approached the same exact spot I talked about previously, driving at high speed, my car was thrown high into the air and I was again disconnected. This has again cost me a ZK Spawner. My reason for trying to play in 32-bit mode was simple. It seemed that the 64-bit mode was not optimized. This is apparent because, even while on foot, the game stutters (pauses) momentarily. In addition the FPS fluctuates from 32 up to 150. This does not allow for a smooth transition from place to place. In addition I observed that while driving, the vehicles 'bounce' as if hitting unseen bumps in the road. And, the issue of the vehicles flipping and twisting in mid-air, that was supposedly repaired, is coming back again. (Yes, I was driving on the paved area). I am playing on my own personal private server so I was alone. Further observations of gameplay indicates to me that the game is in need of better optimization. The FPS changes dramatically depending on what you are looking at. It seems the grass is higher than before, and there's the issue of trees with branches so low they protrude into the ground and through other stationary objects. (As I have pointed out on numerous occasions most noticeably at Camp Splinter). This needs to be corrected. What is the sense of introducing new and exciting zombies, and loot items, if the game environment won't support them in a proper manner.
  13. It seems that you have reverted to your old ways. This event offers nothing for the PVE player. Double currency on the Oregon map? And only on Official Servers? Needless to say, I will be spending very little time playing during this nothing event. I thought you agreed to be all inclusive for everybody. I guess, because the PVE side of the game has gone quiet, you feel you don't have to offer anything to them. Hope you have a good, safe weekend. Stay healthy.
  14. Here is an update for you @3lias. Earlier today, I was playing and driving very slowly, honking the horn. (Honking seems to speed up the zombie spawning a little). I was just about at a stand still when my car, a sheriff's dragster this time. was flung high into the air. I was high enough that I could look down on the treetops. The screen froze, and I was disconnected from the server. Alas, I lost yet another vehicle. I once again add that this was on my private server. I was the only one present. This tells me that this issue is not related to other players being present, but it does indicate it is localized to the actual spawning of zombies. As it happens, I was very near Rotten Valley again. Please, understand that this happens all over the map. Colorado V2 is where I spend my time. As I stated before, this issue doesn't seem to be limited to just driving. There is a stutter on the server and suddenly zombies appear. However, not being in a vehicle isn't a big issue for me due to my level and experience. I sincerely hope my input about this bug is helping you better diagnose what is actually happening with the programming of the game. Hope everybody is staying safe and well during this global pandemic. Stay home as much as you can and practice social distancing of 6' of separation when you are outside. Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds and be sure to clean under your nails. And, I know this is the most difficult part, try to not touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  15. Thank you @3lias. I lost yet another vehicle to this issue yesterday. That makes a total of 4 ZK Spawners lost.
  16. Just a side note about this issue, I don't want to mislead you into thinking that this just occurs around Rotten Valley. On the contrary, it occurs whenever zombies spawn. Even when on foot, there are short pauses that happen. I firmly believe this issue is linked to the FPS. I was stable for a while but it has been fluctuating more and more. It's more noticeable since the latest patch.
  17. I don't have a video of it, but I can tell you when it happens. It has happened to me 4 times. While driving past Rotten Valley at top speed, the zombies that normally occupy the road are not there. This crash happens when they suddenly materialize. This flips your vehicle into the air, freezing the picture, and eventually kicking you off the server. When I was able to return to the server, my vehicle was suspended in mid air. I was able to retrieve it by placing a personal storage locker next to it, climbing on top, and picking the vehicle up. Of course, there were those times where I wasn't able to log back in in time to save my vehicle. This has cost me 3 ZK Spawners. It seems the sudden spawning of the zombies is the cause. Before you ask, it has happened both on a server with other players as well as a private server where I was the only one there. This type of bug also occurs when you drive up to where a group of zombies spawn. While stopping the vehicle and trying to pick it up, the screen freezes. This can cause you to be killed by the approaching zombies. I have had this happen to me a number of times. I honestly believe this happens because of the lag that occurs when the spawning zombies fail to spawn, and then suddenly appearing, causing the FPS to drop to 0. @tonton3313's screenshots are excellent depictions of what happens. I have seen picture #4 more than once besides the times my vehicle was suspended in mid air. BTW, a video would be extremely difficult to obtain because the screen freezes and the image flashes from one position to another. I hope this description helps you to understand this problem. Please get this fixed, I'm tired of losing lives and vehicles because of it.
  18. Do a little research. There is a map of all the large zombie location. And, as I stated, the Toxic zombie only spawns in radiation areas. Here's a link to the New Z Wiki. https://infestationnewz.gamepedia.com/Infestation:_The_New_Z_Wiki
  19. To be clear, there are 3 large zombies. 1) the SUPER zombie that spawns in multiple locations around the map both day and night, and is WHITE in color. 2) the ALIEN zombie that spawns in multiple locations around the map between the hours of roughly 2300 and 0300 and is RED in color but appears to be BLACK when wearing NVG. [night vision goggles] This zombie is not as plentiful as the SUPER. 3) the TOXIC zombie. If this is the one you mean, it spawns only in radiation areas and is GREEN in color. It can spawn anytime while the radiation zone is active. I'm posting this so there is no confusion as to what zombie you are talking about and where you might find him. Remember, WHITE = Super RED/BLACK = Alien & GREEN = TOXIC.
  20. @ZenoZen, You are 100% correct. There are certain players that get a certain amount of joy from being kicked, knowing full well they will be able to rejoin in a couple hours. It only incites them to become an even more obnoxious player. I have noticed this over my years of running chat servers. Yes, some will say, 'But this is a game, it's different' WRONG. The concept is exactly the same. This type of person comes on here to be disruptive. They consider it 'fun' to impede the fun of others by acting out. They are like spoiled children. My thought is a kick should last at least a month. But there is only one way to ban someone and that is permanently. If this is incorporated, we would see less of these players harassing others. They would have to take their unruly attitude elsewhere. If they want to purchase their own server, let them. They can then do what they want. Stay safe. @ZenoZen. And thank you for sponsoring a server.
  21. I would like to point out that the hit markers for the KT Decider are not working correctly. While playing there are more and more times where you shoot at a zombie and nothing happens. The sound is there, but there is no hit marker. I'm using a rifle laser and let the zombie get close so the shot is at point blank range. The last time I used a KT Decider was for the specialist contract, which I am doing again. It's just like when someone else mentioned throwing a grenade and it either detonates behind you, to your right or left, or even at your feet. Could you please check this and make some adjustments? Thanks, and Have a Nice Day, wash your hands often and stay safe. Remember social distancing of 6'
  22. I got the same screen. I had to log in to my account. For some reason it is not remembering your password. Here's what I did. 1) Click the OK box on that message. 2) Log in to the game using your username and password. (My username was remembered, my password wasn't) 3) At this point you can play the game. Enjoy
  23. Thank you very much @3lias. I appreciate the effort you have put forth to resolve these issues. I still think the Toxic zombie should drop loot equal to the quantity of Super and Alien zombies, but I guess 5 items is better than 3. I suggest however, the items dropped by the Toxic zombie not include the same helmets and armor that the Super and Alien drop. I think weapons and ammo and a rare airdrop caller could be incorporated to make the effort needed to kill the Toxic zombie worth the effort. As I stated, the reward should reflect the amount of effort necessary to kill them. And @Sven, I still have the issue with the rifle and pistol flashlight. However, I think it may be associated with my older computer. Since I hardly ever use them, and the patches that @3lias has presented here, I'll just leave that issue as it is. I hope you are all staying safe during the pandemic. Have a Nice Day!!!
  24. @Fred, @3lias, @Sven I hope you all take the time to read this post. Please, don't just ignore it like you do for so many other comments and suggestions that are made by the community. I don't usually play in the radiation areas, but today I found myself caught up in the middle of one at Zeta. These are just a few of the things I experienced while there. First of all, The view through the gas mask is still quite horrendous. Especially at night. The field of vision is far too narrow based on personal experience wearing a gas mask. This needs to be adjusted so the view is a bit clearer. During daylight hours, it's not quite as bad but it does need improvement. Second, The bus stop that is located at Zeta is in an area that is inside the radiation area. This is wrong. If a player decides to travel by bus to Zeta, and is not prepared, they are in for a rude awakening. This is magnified if they arrive during nighttime hours. I suggest that either the bus stop be moved further south, closer to where it used to be, or by shrinking the radiation area itself. It doesn't make sense to have the radiation area engulf the bus stop there. Third, the flashlight attachment is still not working correctly. I tried attaching it to my weapon to get a better field of vision. When it is first attached, it does help with the visuals. HOWEVER, as I had reported multiple times in the past, when you switch to another item and then back again, you are blinded by your own flashlight. I had thought that this issue was fixed a long time ago. I guess if someone stops reporting an issue such as this, it gets tossed aside and not worked on. When you are confronted by more aggressive zombies, and cannot see them clearly, it is extremely difficult to get to a safe place. To help with the visual aspect of being in a radiation area, a working flashlight would be more beneficial than the blur that you see through the gas mask lenses. Fourth, and most important and irritating, the loot drop and experience gained. It takes between 4 to 5 times the ammo to kill even regular zombies. You have to shoot them in the head at least 5 times before they die. Super and Alien zombies are even harder to kill. The toxic zombie is even worse. Since you are having to deal with such low visibility and a massive expenditure of ammo, the experience should be at least 3 to 4 times what you get normally. As far as the Toxic Zombie, why the hell is it only dropping 3 items? Especially when a good amount of times 2 of those items are armor and helmets. A regular Super drops 8 items. Why such a restriction on the amount that is dropped from a zombie that takes so much ammo? In my opinion, the issues presented here can be considered game breakers. I have been playing this game for over 3 years. I don't see any reason why game issues such as these are allowed to continue to exist. It just doesn't make sense.
  25. @Keymbo. It's funny that I found this in another thread. Antoworte auf mein Survival Beitrag bezüglich marketplace. Translation? Reply to my Survival post regarding marketplace. Fascinating. I guess you need help from @HomuraZ? For your information, If you set the prices too high, any new player will have no chance of purchasing items from the marketplace. That is why they need to be lower. It's hard enough to get players to come to this game. They don't need to be chased off because of extremely high prices. @Sven, I have been giving it some thought and think it would be advantageous to keep the marketplace confined to safe zones for Survival. Afterall, it is supposed to be somewhat more difficult to play. And I do stick with my assessment that the prices shouldn't be so high as to scare away new players.
