Hello!

November Roadmap

November is going to be a huge month for 3.0, in that the majority of features from 2.0 will be getting brought in now that the foundation is in place. These are the big things that are being aimed for:
  • Driveable vehicles.
  • Crafting and harvesting resources.
  • Building fortifications and bases.
  • Skills and specializations.
  • Customization in the form of faces, hairs, colors and the Gold suit.
  • Footsteps, swimming, climbing, leaning and punching.
  • Miscellaneous features such as audio and the ability to undo.
  • Optimize the heck out of everything.
There are not in any specific order, however it is most likely that crafting and vehicles will be added before building.

  • Fixed a bug with the menu clothing.
  • Fixed objects that did not have a numerical suffix.
  • Fixed a crash when joining servers.

Thoughts

What do you think of the zombies climbing through windows? I think it will really add onto the barricading aspect of the game because you'll need a place to stay, and if the zombies can get in the windows you've got a problem.Today I was also looking into the possibility of rain and snow in 3.0, and I gotta say it's really promising.Thanks for reading!
