Okay, so here's how this works: -50% Plague Infection reduces how much infection you get for each plague hit. The plague meter fills up with each hit from a plague zombie. Let's say that the meter has 200 max, like a stamina bar or health bar, but instead of starting at max it starts at zero. Let's say that a regular plague zed will add 30 to that meter if he hits you. This number can fluctuate for special hits, crits or etc. -50% Plague Infection will reduce the amount of that hit by half. So, that 30 would be… Read more »

I never use surgery. And I agree, using heavy weapons in SoD1 was way better. Also, you could get fifteteen peoples doing the builder boon. But I think they fixed you doing it over and over.

About UD's shooting down the idea of urban maps, pretty much everything that people really want them to do, and a lot of things (like the AI) that really need done UD says is undoable because of the limitations of the software. There are plenty of games that pretty much do those same things though. So it is possible and I really hope sod3 is built from software that is at least robust enough to handle this stuff. Suicidaly stupid friendly ai, enclaves that stand in the pitch black dark, and not only let you loot their base while saying… Read more »

I've been playing State of Decay since the original launched in Xbox Live Arcade back in the day. Brought a friend of mine into the series and he's been complaining about the lack of map diversity and asking me why UL don't make a CIty map, especially after we played Daybreak and he saw the huge city out in the distance. As far as I can tell, UL simply didn't have the team to pull off a city map in the way most players would envision it. I mean think about it: all we've ever gotten is different variations of… Read more »

If you have an Auto mechanic and the driver skills will the maxed out effect for the community of an auto mechanic add to the driver's ability percentages?

It is amazing that there is this beta in the first place. I had assumed UL were done developing SOD2 and they were fully on SoD3

Thanks for the video fox. After reading this I hope you get a nap in. I believe plague resistance keeps you from getting infected at all. The coveted "Blood Plague Survivor" trait gives +100 plague resistance thus your character is immune to the plague unless they use a biochem item like scent block. Infection resistance slows down how fast you get full blown allowing a character to use something like scent block, or take plague zombie damage, but get full blown infection a much slower rate. My survivor with the "Blood Plague Survivor" trait takes out plague hearts and my… Read more »

Munitions also lets you upgrade the storage locker to Firesafe Storage 3 for +20 ammo and fuel. Non Beta is +3 storage. +10 is better but still meh.What I don't like is (unless they've changed it) is when ever you go above a certain level someone in the comunity will start whining about how you need to upgrade the storage or you're goingvto lose recources regardless of how much space you actually have.So now you have the potential for +30 ammo storage but the comunity will start complaining long before you reach that point. I've looked at my stirage trying… Read more »

I prefer to use Produce meds option to improve Medicine and Chemistry skill. It's not as fast, but levels up both simultaneously and gives resource. It consumes ethanol though, which normally you wanna preserve for strong painkillers. That's why I always do the Brewers quest line, because their supply drop always has at least 3 jugs of ethanol. It's super good, because it also has the luxury alcohol item that sells for 102 influence, and the supply drop costs only 150. Not too mention it also has a food rucksack that will always give you +3 food. In lethal zone… Read more »

Just a note. The Munitions and Pharmacology skill bonuses are similar but before they gave a measly +3 rather than +10. Surgery gave the +20 same health bonus but was specific to the surgeon rather than community wide. Pathology was mostly the same but the bonus was 100 infection resistance to that survivor only instead of 50 to the entire community. Also, infection resistance and plague infection are different things. Every character has an infection bar, similar to health, that starts at 100 infection resistance. The +50 brings it to 150 total. For example, say a plague zombie grabs you… Read more »

I think infection resistance is like increasing the life bar so you are more resistant to plague and need a higher amount to get plagued, while the reduced plague infection is 50% less plague damage from all sources.
