I'm not entirely certain that it doesn't exist already, but a CBM that allowed you to recharge batteries from your internal power supply would be nifty.

I think I've seen it able to craft 'bottle of pure acid' by using a welding rig, pulling batteries out of the vehicle.  I don't remember exactly though, there may have been batteries on the floor.

I believe you can also use 'weak acid water' which you can obtain by leaving a partly filled container under a funnel during acid rain or drizzle.  Particularly, if you have a Keg, you can ruin a lot of perfectly good water with a light tracing of acid, then refine that into real acid.

I can confirm you can collect acid rain- I slept through an early morning acid storm, woke up with a few plastic bottles of acid and the rest of the stacks ruined/heavily damaged.

Protip: use 3l jars


Oh hey and if it makes a difference, I use 4 funnels in a 2x2 arrangement.

I saw someone mention you can pick up part of a stack. Don't remember exactly how.

Also, funnels are a perfectly viable way to get water. Just set a single funnel up than put a steel jerrycan or keg under it and sleep semi-near it. Granted it takes a while to purify it but hey, tons of free risk-free water.

Ohh speaking of this:
You can use the water-extraction bionic to get ANY AMOUNT of drinkable water; it just fills on the target container with potable water. I've extracted 80+Liters from a single jumping spider with jerrycans. If only you could just directly pump it into vehicular water tanks...

And then, they will be weaponized. Like everything in this game, from kittens to babies, everything is a potential device of murder.
So if baseless speculation is all we have, we might as well treat it like fact.

Yeah, currently all corpses contain infinite water.  It's viable to keep a dead rabbit in the glove compartment to take a drink every now and then.

And now I realize why so many out-of-context quotes come from here.

I've definitely got shocker zombies in my 'classic zombies' world.
There are no special zombies besides shockers though.

When I tried classic in .5, I had a bunch of boomers in a hospital as well.

While I understand that static spawns means creatures won't spawn in from sound or smell and/or whatever, what does that mean in the longer term? Will a town or area repopulate with creatures eventually or will it remain cleared? Is there still situations where the game will spawn creatures, as I vaguely remember that static spawn only affects zombies and not other creatures in the wilderness.

Oddly enough, the shockers are in places I can't imagine them having been. They're around the helicopter crash site, but I was there only the day before.

   So in my latest video I tried something I had not in while and put basically all my points into stats. It seems to be working out quite well though that could have just been a lucky start. How many of you have done characters this way and how have they worked for you?

If you want to see the video you can find it Here (using SirHolder's Tileset)

Damn, Astral, you beat me to it :P

So any special tips for doing things like scavenging cars or something? I always hold onto a wrench, a screwdriver, a crowbar and a welder if I can find one of each. And what are electronics good for?
