  1. With "browser store" you are talking about an in-game system where players can put items for sale and others can buy them without using the trading lounge / all automatic right? I'd love to see this one day

    Weekend Event!

    Lower amount of zombies THAN what? Compared to what? Just wondering.
  7. Dear Community, Are you ready for another weekend event?! Before we jump into the actual weekend event we'd like to remind to you that we have just released patch 2.40. For patch notes go here: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8541-patch-240/ Also, the new Winter 2019 major event has finally started. We are releasing a new box, new map, new trading lounge and a lot more further content! Winter 2019 is a major event and will be active for the upcoming 2-3 months. For information go to: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8542-winter-2019/ For this weekend event we'll have it live the following period of time: START: November 29, 2019 12:00 PM (CET) END: December 2, 2019 12:00 PM (CET) Now, let's jump into further details about this weekend's weekend event: Free Revive Weekend. Revive will be free this weekend for anyone that doesn't have premium! Battle Royale Madness. In Battle Royale Madness we shake up the loot completely. Snipers, strong weapons, riot shields and all other good items that normally don't spawn in the Battle Royale game mode are now spawning! Last "Battle Royale Madness" event the snipers were a bit too common so this time we'll adjust that and have them more rare. Caliwood Double Reputation. (OW / SURV) In Caliwood for both the Open World and the Survival game-mode all reputation gained will be doubled. This only goes for official servers. Camo Skinbox from Super Zombies (OW / SURV). The Camo Skinbox is now spawning from Super Zombies in both the Open World and Survival game-mode. Note that the skinbox is rare to drop so you're going to have to kill a lot of Super Zombies to get an actual Camo Skinbox! Good luck! ROUTINE: Battle Royale Map Rotation As always, the main and only Battle Royale map will be changed. This time we are changing over from Tropico to Arizona. Note: We change the map rotation in the Battle Royale game-mode every week due to the low(er) amount of players playing Battle Royale. If you have any suggestions, ideas or feedback please let us know at http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/5388-maps-battle-royale/ SALE: Black Friday Sale! 50% discount on all skinboxes only for the upcoming 24 hours!

    Winter 2019

    Dear Community, This has already been announced in the patch notes of patch 2.40 but just in case some of you missed this and so that there is a separate event announcement we are posting this again. This post will contain all the information about the major Winter 2019 event. For this major event there is no particular end date set yet but it will be up for around 2-3 months from now. This event is much more than just a weekend or week event. It's starting now, with the release of this patch and will end in around 2-3 months. The event can be considered as a seasonal event. This means all features listed below will only be active and available during the event period. Here's what we have for you guys: Winter 2019 Trading Lounge & PVP Map. Winter themed Season Pass #2. More about this soon. Season pass won't be instantly released at this patch but will be released soon after, most likely the Monday after the weekend event which will be December 2, 2019. Winter 2019 Box. Brand new content including the new "Winter Camo" skin set. Also includes items such as the Riot Shield Winter Camo, Snow Ball Grenade and the Bear Hat to keep you warm this winter!

    Weekend Event!

    Thx for further feedback guys, about to announce the new weekend event for this weekend!
  10. Servers are going down for patch 2.40 very soon. Stay tuned!
  11. Dear Community, Good morning! It's time for patch 2.40 which includes the release of the base building system in Survival, the winter 2019 major event has officially started, we are about to release a new type of zombie and on top of that a lot of fixes and improvements!

Available for purchase through the character selection screen. Winter 2019 Character clothes will be available for the following characters: Rockin' Rolla, Hunter, Ex Cage Fighter and Club Promoter. GENERAL: Added big amounts of content for the Christmas 2019 event already. More info about this will follow throughout December. Christmas 2019 event planned start date is December 20, 2019. Fixed a bug where not all map filters would show on the servers list in the main menu. Fixed a bug related to the taunt system where your game would glitch when using a taunt. Fixed a crash that happened when leaving a group. MODELS: Fixed an issue related to the Halloween circus tent models where players could glitch from the inside through the wall to the outside. CHARACTERS: Added rank 1 character skins for November 2019. ZOMBIES: Added a new super zombie type: The Slicer. This is a new unique kind of big/super zombie in New Z. At the moment we are still testing it and making sure it's 100% working before we release it but we're at a stage now that we are 99% sure it will be released very soon. The slicer has unique sounds, animations, stats and behavior. It's around the same size as a super zombie but has a lot more health. The slicer won't be released just yet but you all can expect it will be released in both Open World and Survival very soon. We will finalize its stats and AI and when we release the Slicer we will let you all know exactly how it will behave, how much health it will have etc. For now, here is some preview pictures: Item & Skin Updates: CHANGES: Melees now have separated player and zombie damage values. This allowed us to change and adjust the damage values for melees better and more in-depth. We have left the damage against zombies for melees the same while we have lowered the damage of most of the melees against players. There is now also a new bar added in the statistics UI (when selecting a melee) that shows the damage vs. a player and/or against a zombie. FIXES: Fixed an issue related to dropping taunt recipes where there was no model. There is now a model and it's no longer invisible. Fixed an issue related to the FN Scar CQC Desion where it had too much reflection on some maps. Fixed an issue related to the M4 Desion where it had too much reflection on some maps. IMPROVEMENTS: Sprays now have their own TPS/dropped model. When dropping any spray on the ground there now is a spray can model. ADDITIONS: Added a new normal Riot Shield: Riot Shield Golden Tar Gibelin. This is a shield dedicated to the player who had the most kills on the last New Z Super Cup. Added a new clan Riot Shield: Riot Shield 24HR. Open World Updates: PVP SERVERS: Spawns in PVP servers will now check for the spawn with the least amount of players nearby. COLORADO V2: Adjusted the fog level around night time. Slightly increased the amount of fog on further distances around 11 PM in-game time. CALIWOOD: Adjusted the fog level. Slightly increased the amount of fog on further distances. Survival Updates: BUILDING SYSTEM RELEASE: It's time we take the building system to the next level. After this patch we will enable building on at least 1 Colorado V2 server per region. We'd like to see first how the Survival players react to this and based on further feedback we might make final changes before we enable building on all Survival servers. We are able to turn building on/off per server dynamically without restarting anything so if all goes according to plan expect every Survival server to have building enabled later on. We expect feedback and therefore we have created this dedicated forum thread where you all can write any feedback and ideas you might have about the building system. Here is the link: http://forums.fredaikis.com/index.php?/topic/8538-building-system/ GENERAL: Added the base build hammer to the crafting list. You need the following materials to be able to craft this hammer: 10x Wood, 8x Metal, 2x Glue, 1x Nails. Added the cupboard to the crafting list. You need the following materials to be able to craft this hammer: 25x Metal. Exchange missions have been updated: Consumables Exchange Exchange 3x Water 375ml for 1x Electro-AID. Pistol Exchange Exchange 5x Kurger .22 for 1x Desert Eagle. Assault Rifle Exchange Exchange 2x Scar CQC for 1x Scar Night Stalker. Sub Machine Gun Exchange Exchange 2x Thompson for 1x P90S. Mixed Exchange Exchange 2x PKM Ammo Box for 5x Stanag 30. COLORADO V1: Removed the radiation zone from Clearview since there is a high concentration of PVP in this area. CALIWOOD: Adjusted the fog level. Slightly increased the amount of fog on further distances. Harvestable resources have been added to the map. This means players can now also farm wood, metal and stone in this map. Also added "no building" areas everywhere to prevent players to build in particular areas. Fixed the terrain around the safe zone. The safe zone is no longer clipping inside the terrain and overall terrain has been made smoother. Players can now also do the exchange missions in Caliwood. Before we end these patch notes let's talk about what you guys can expect to be coming in terms of event(s). Black Friday Sale on November 29, 2019 Christmas Calendar starting December 1, 2019 and ending December 25, 2019. Christmas 2019 event starting December 20, 2019 and ending January 6, 2019.

    Building System

    All feedback regarding the building system goes here. Feel free to comment down below!

    Weekend Event!

    Okay but do you remember what exact private server that was on? There is literally no way that hat is still spawning.
  15. Hey guys! Thank you so much to all of you for all the feedback already! Keep it up! Unfortunately we will NEVER ever bring weapons back in the in-game marketplace for GD. Sorry. Interested point actually. "Make simple weekday events, not just weekend". What would you guys think if we'd do week events instead of just the weekend where, every Friday we switch around 4 features. Turn off the old four and turn on four new ones?

    Weekend Event!

    Okay thanks for the further info, what server was this on? If it was a private server, what was the name / region? I know. Chupa actually brought up weapon statistics, mostly AR based stuff, in last staff meeting. I ma a big pro for improving weapon mechanics in New Z. Most of the stuff is statistic based and New Z feels very old and outdated on today's weapon mechanics in games. I totally agree with you here. Stuff that NEEDS fixing in my opinion is mostly based around the fact that in any popular shooting game at the moment, when spraying an assault rifle, your bullets will at least go where you aim OR there is some kind of recoil / spread pattern that can be learned PER GUN. In New Z, unfortunately, spread is random and recoil only goes upwards. A HUGE improvement we could and should do is advance these values, allowing us to create recoil and spread patterns PER gun. This way we can basically improve every single automatic weapon and in addition bring a whole new level of gun play to New Z. Another thing that really bothers me personally in New Z is the fact that spread is directly started from the weapons barrel. On high range, even low amounts of spread end up in bullets flying literally everywhere. Weapons need to have some kind of range FROM where the bullet starts spreading. Of course on every weapon this would be different where on for example on SMG's the spread would start increasing quite fast over range, but on certain assault rifles like the scar, which is supposed to be accurate, the spread starts increasing on a longer range. These are all things I have proposed to the rest of the staff team for maybe over a year now but there is unfortunately nothing more I can personally do here.

    Weekend Event!

    Well, I actually do agree with some of your points but that's my personal opinion. If that's what you want to hear. If any of it would make it in to the game? I don't know, I can't promise anything. It's not up to me to decide that. And yeah some things like for example the attachment system that the attachments stick on a weapon have been brought up in staff meetings and I 10000% agree with you that we should implement this into the game but unfortunately it still hasn't made it into the game for several reasons.
  18. Can you stop writing with this annoying line through your text. Can't take this serious.
  19. Sven

    Weekend Event!

    I don't see the problem? Forum rule: Write threads in the correct section / category. Why? There is a 100 reasons, which of a few I already explained to you. What's the big deal?
  20. Sven

    Weekend Event!

    Yeah and that post was in the off topic section, aka the correct place. see my point?
  21. Hi Community, We haven't done this in a while and we'd like to create a more dedicated place for feedback around the weekend events. This thread is open for anything around the weekend event and feel free to share anything relevant to the weekend event(s). Now, I know a lot of you have already posted threads with feedback and ideas for the weekend event(s) in the past and I am not saying non of you did but I think a step in the right direction is to start with creating a more dedicated place for feedback about the weekend event(s). To start this off we'd like to offer you guys some kind of form that you could fill in that helps gather some initial feedback. Just copy the following text in a comment and answer how you like: - If you could organize a weekend event, what four (4) feature points would you do? 1. 2. 3. 4. - What do you think we can improve on for future weekend event(s)? - What previous weekend event points did you like the most? Why? - What previous weekend event points did you NOT like at all? Why? Feel free to of course share any additional feedback you might have. Feel free to re-link threads from the past or just copy paste the entire thread in a comment here. I hope you all can appreciate this approach with the aim to improve the future weekend event(s). Best Regards, Sven

    Weekend Event!

    Actually, let me correct you here. Over the past 2 years, a number of people have made hundreds of complaints as well where I can recall that me personally replying to that "feedback" never even gotten replies. I remember asking: "Why do you think this" or "What example can you give us" etc. without ever a reaction. People have written: "This is bad" or "This sucks ass" and gotten replies but never answered I mean, it stops there and then. BTW I don't know where you find this but some "double XP stuff" was never a permanent part of any weekend event. Also, a lot of ideas people have brought up we have actually done or tried something with. F.E. the server option / feature system we made where we can enable and disable certain features on servers live. Just to mention one. Yes zombies drop higher amounts of GD. I can confirm. Yes these items should be removed. No idea how / why they would still be spawning. I double checked on the database and there is no way the Pumpkin Hat can still be spawning for example. Can you give us more information, what server, when, etc. so that we can investigate this? I actually replied to @JKS 's post. Just didn't get to reply earlier. I can quote: "I mean be realistic here. You posted this Saturday afternoon time for me, now it's Monday morning for me and the first thing I did was reply to this / forums etc. I mean, do you want to hear a sorry from me that I didn't get to reply on a Sunday?" - What do you want me to say? Thanks for your feedback And again, I can only speak for myself and I can only justify my own actions and activity on these forums. Sorry if it disappoints you.
  23. I actually really like this idea. Only down sides I'd see is that we can't make this happen directly in the next weekend event as we'd have to patch in the coins etc. etc. It would be cool to have some weekends where these coins are available so that it stays more of a rare and event based thing. Thanks for sharing this idea. I'm going to do something with this.
