What will Kevan implement next?

Where the Heck is a list where Kevan lists the things that he is working on implementing to make the game work better? --Mattiator Mattiator 01:53, 5 Dec 2005 (GMT)

It doesn't exist (except in Kevan's head, presumably) - he's a pretty modest sort of guy. He doesn't post what features he's "working on", nor does he say updates are "just around the corner." He doesn't even make disappointing promises about improving server performance. In fact, he focuses almost entirely on making updates, instead of talking about them. It's a good policy. --LouisB3 02:21, 5 Dec 2005 (GMT)
However, you can head on over to the Suggestions pages to take a look at the user-submitted ideas that have been approved. There is a chance that some of these will be implemented in the future, when Kevan finally has time to get around to them. For example, I remember seeing the original suggestion for improving search odds in lighted buildings quite a few months ago. It was implemented a couple weeks ago. --Mewarmo990 05:31, 23 May 2006 (BST)

Multiple Floors

Will there be more that one level in some buildings ever in the game,l ike a police dept would have 2 or 3 and a tower would have like 10 or 20. And if they were put in would you be able to move freely through the stair well/elevator and the floor door be blocked off or would a floor being fully blocked of mean you cant move up to the next floor.

First of all: Sign. Your. Goddamn. Posts. (I'm beginning to see a need for a giant, blinking, multi-hued "Sign your posts" marquee at the top of *every* page where people are supposed to post.)
Second of all: Who. Knows. Kevan may decide to, Kevan may decide not to. Considering his seeming disinterest in the game, I don't think something as fundamentally 'different' as this would be implemented anytime soon. –Xoid STFU! 02:42, 18 July 2006 (BST)


Are there any plans to introduce additional guns to this game, like, say some sort of full auto rifle? Firearms selection seems kinda lacking...and IMO it's really illogical that the military would not have any rifles like, say, an M4 carbine.

Rifles are generally seen as out of genre - they are frequently suggested but nearly always shot down on the suggestions page. General consensus is that another firearm isn't needed. (also, sign your posts by adding '--~~~~') --Preasure 19:01, 20 April 2007 (BST)

grenades would be cool ;) -chaosvolt-

No they wouldn't. This is another frequently suggested idea that always gets shot down. --Explodey 23:58, 30 May 2008 (BST)
Guns would be REALLY imbalanced, the shotgun is balanced as it takes ages to find ammo and reaload. And the pistol is balanced as doesn't do as much damage as the shotgun. Militarry weapons would have large magazine sizes and pack a punch, so it would be unfair on zombies. --Angusburger 10:15, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Hiyah. First time on this wiki. I actually have an idea similar to these ideas, but one that I find a little more believable: a bolt-action rifle!

Here's the basics: the rifle is meant to be a more accurate weapon than any other gun, with DPH (Damage Per Hit) of around 8- more than a pistol, but less than a shotgun. It accepts a 5-round magazine, and at its highest level of accuracy (which takes about 4 upgrades to get to, with the last one costing 125 experience points), it hits about 75-80% of the time. As you can see, it can be very powerful. However, the main problems with it are its difficulty to find both the weapon and ammunition (drop rates for both weaponry and ammo are even lower than that of the shotgun, and the highest find rate is actually within the forts, with the malls coming in second), as well as its weight: the weapon itself weighs 4% heavier than the shotgun, although the ammunition still weighs in at 2%, and you can only carry one rifle at a time (for obvious reasons). In addition, I was considering putting in a system where you would need to maintain the rifle over time, which means more AP spent looking for resources and actually cleaning the barrel and the action. I personally think that even in here, a bolt-action rifle (hopefully not too overpowered) would be able to fit into the game. --Jack Thorpe 9:11, 12 February 2009

I'd recommend taking that to Developing Suggestions rather than on here. Generally, ideas for new guns (specifically rifles) are rejected. --Johnny Bass 21:45, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

I wonder what Kevan will do for Halloween?

If Kevan is reading, please give us a hint what you'll do do the game this Halloween. Anyone else, say what you THINK he'll add to game to make the classic horror holiday fun for players. my guesses:

  • Nerf us poor humans
  • make humans and zed party together
  • do something lame like reuse the vampire/werewolf joke

So, what do think he throw at us?

Contact List

Is there any way I can find out who adds me to their contact list? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by John Kingston (talkcontribs) 02:26, 28 April 2008.

No. --PdeqTalk* 08:17, 28 April 2008 (BST)
...Unless kevan introduces an update for that, which he might. You should put it forward on the suggestions page. --Angusburger 20:53, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
