20070613 Dry Cleaning / Clothing Repair

Darwinson 20:53, 13 June 2007 (BST)

Suggestion type
New skill

Suggestion scope

Suggestion description
Basically, this skill would let you repair / clean clothing that was 'blood-flecked', 'bloodstained', etc. - really, just a cosmetic skill, but some survivors might appreciate keeping the zombie bits out of their natty tweed suits / combat fatigues / frilly little princess dresses.

Obviously a Civilian skill, though it could be made a Zombie Hunter skill for shits and giggles.

EDIT: Okay, I concede the point - this skill should be limited to powered buildings, so it doesn't destroy game balance. Or maybe for realism or something.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep - creator vote. --Darwinson 20:54, 13 June 2007 (BST)
  2. Keep - No reason not to. Zoift 21:58, 13 June 2007 (BST)
  3. Keep - while it needs more info this would be a nice little add on.--'BPTmz 00:56, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  4. Keep - But yeah, only on a powered building. ~m T! 02:02, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  5. Keep Which buildings? Don't some hotels have like washing machines in 'em? Make an item necesary too... Like... "Detergent" --Secruss 04:01, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  6. Keep Come on people, why pick the dang thing to pieces? All it is is a bit of completely harmless flavor. Nalikill 04:00, 15 June 2007 (BST)
  7. Keep Without this, most clothing may end up all bloody.Plus, in the zombie situation, there are sanitation reasons, just like tossing out dead bodies.Mail2345 06:53, 15 June 2007 (BST)
  8. Keep - I like it :) --MarieThe Grove on Tour 16:01, 15 June 2007 (BST)
  9. Keep/Change - Make it only available in hotels. Make it cost APs. --People's Commissar Hagnat [cloned] [mod] 00:36, 16 June 2007 (BST)
  10. Keep - Great for clothes like camoflauge jacket which can be only obtained from a fort. You shouldn't have to get a new one every time it gets some blood on it. --Midianian 20:28, 22 June 2007 (BST)
  11. Keep - Nice bit of game flavor. Also, for the survivors who travel a distance to get that rare item, then head back home, this would be good. ~ Logan Ash ~ Logan's BadgeMetal FoxLogan's Talk 10:11, 24 June 2007 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill Great premise, but surely the skill could only be used in a powered building that would feasably contain a washer/drier?--Seventythree 20:56, 13 June 2007 (BST)
    RE: That was my first thought, but given that people would be paying XP to get the skill in the first place, it seemed like a useless extra condition. --Darwinson 21:16, 13 June 2007 (BST)
    EDIT: And it's possible to launder clothing without a washing machine; I've had to do it before, and it's not all that hard.
    EDIT II: Alright, alright, I concede the point, and edited my suggestion to reflect this. People washing clothes in the middle of the street doesn't make much sense in the zombocalypse. --Darwinson 02:45, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  2. Kill Part of the fun with clothes is to go into harms way, only to get something nice to wear. This skill would remove that aspect. - BzAli 21:32, 13 June 2007 (BST)
    RE: Not really - you'd still have to procure the clothes in the first place, as well as earn the XP to get the skill. Besides, you don't have to mend and clean clothes if you don't want to - it's just cosmetic, after all. --Darwinson 21:37, 13 June 2007 (BST)
  3. Kill - Show me how to effectively clean blood out of clothes, I want to kill more people for reals. Seriously though, where would we get the propoer stuff to be able to do this, I don't even know how to clean blood out of clothes I have in real life let alone how I would go about it in a zombie apocalypse. Why not just drop the clothes and pick them up again.--karek 01:09, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  4. Kill - Above. Theres protein in blood. No go. --  AHLGTG 01:36, 14 June 2007 (BST)
    RE: You'd be surprised, actually. Shampoo works really well for cleaning bloodstains out of clothes - as I learned back in high school when a lightning globe exploded and sent shards of glass into my arms. But that's a story for another time. --Darwinson 01:52, 14 June 2007 (BST) EDIT: Or spit. Or cold water and friction. Or hydrogen peroxide and water. Or...
  5. Kill 100XP for a purely cosmetic skill? Bleah. Just loot new ones. --Magentaine 04:59, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  6. Kill - As ever one else has said, If you want clean clothes just loot new ones. --Sonofagun18 06:17, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  7. Kill - As above --Duke GarlandTLCD SSZ 07:52, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  8. Kill - Just get new clothes if you don't like them dirty. It's not like they'r hard to find. --Nikitis 10:19, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  9. Kill - Sometimes realism goes to far. Blinkin the Gremlin RRF AU10 T RR GC 00:33, 16 June 2007 (BST)
  10. Kill - There's flavour, then there's pointless realism. Just go get some new clothes. Simple as. armareum 00:59, 16 June 2007 (BST)
  11. Kill - as others.-- Vista  +1  10:28, 23 June 2007 (BST)

Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. Spiced Ham - Just go get a new one -- boxy T L ZS Nuts2U DA 01:14, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  2. Spam - If you want to be clean, go get new clothes. In the Zombie apocalypse it should be hard to keep your clothes clean-- Che -T GC X 01:23, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  3. Spam - I doubt highly that a woman running from a horde of flesh eating zombies is going to be thinking "I got blood on my clothes, OMG!!!!". --User:Axe27/Sig 04:52, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  4. Spam - As what boxy said. Simple and easy. --JudeMaverick W! TJ! Talk Zzz... P! Nuts! 10:10, 14 June 2007 (BST)
  5. Spam - This suggestion made me smile, but for the wrong reasons. --Matthew Fahrenheit YRCT+1 05:26, 15 June 2007 (BST)
  6. Spam - As boxy. --Anotherpongo 17:34, 15 June 2007 (BST)
  7. MUMS the word Double D - Hmmmm, why would we go through all the trouble of making repairs or even cleaning them when we could always go steal another outfit?-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 01:00, 18 June 2007 (BST)
