Suggestion scope

Suggestion description

Vehicles can be found in: caryards Junkyards Fire Stations Outside hotels and towers Outside streets Fort Vehicle Depots.

In order to drive a car, you must have:

Hotwiring skill or keys to the car. Hotwiring allows the player to run the car without a key. If player's don't have the skill, they must find the keys within the building (example: searching the building, you find the keys to an ambulance).

Driver skill. Without this, it takes five AP to drive the car. Civilians can start with this. With the skill, two AP. And for an added danger, without the skill, you can't ram zombies, barricades, and there's a 40% chance of crashing for 15 damage. With the skill, 15%.

Gas cans. Duh, you need gas to run the car. Gas consumption depends on the car. If it's a humvee or, say, a Lamborghini Diablo, it'll consume gas at a faster rate.

And for the necrosisly challenged: Memories of Life. Driving is three AP. You don't need a key or hotwiring. You smash the engine to run. (BUT GLENSTONE THAT'S NOT REALISTIC - But since when has been UD been realistic?)

You can stay inside a car, but they're not barricadable. The vehicle can be wrecked by zombies, PKers, or crashing the car.

Zombies/barricades/harmanz are rammable for six damage, but you can't ram without Driver skill and it's only 30% hit with the skill.

Vehicles found will depend on the building: Fort Vehicle Depots: Jeeps (seat three), Humvees (seat five). No machine gun. They take punishment (25 zombie hand hits to wreck), but are slow (two blocks), and require two gas cans to run (takes 15 turns for it to run out of gas.) Hospitals: Ambulances. Fast (three blocks), seats five. but also eats up gas. Moderate protection (15 zed hand attacks to wreck) Needs two gas cans. 12 turns to run out. Police Departments: Helicopters are out of the question. So are SWAT vans. Police cars (seat four). You can find two pistol clips and three shotgun shells in here, but they don't replenish. Moderate protection (13 hand attacks), moderate speed (three blocks). Police motorcycles (seat two) - fast (four blocks), needs only one gas can, but if you stay in it, zombies CAN attack you without wrecking it. 11 turns to run out of gas. Fire Departments - Fire Trucks. Massive, armored as VHB buildings. However, they only seat four people, require six gas cans, and are slow (two blocks). 10 turns to run out. Malls: Bus. Same as fire trucks, but seat Everywhere else: Motorcycle - same as police cycle, but more bland. Car - same as police car, sans ammo and needs three gas cans.

You can spray-paint civilian cars and buses to a certain description. (E.G.: A heavily modified bus with the words "The Dead Reckoning Mk. II" is parked here.

You can turn the radio on for random songs, usually pertaining to death or... cars. Like "Cars" by Gary Numan.

EDIT: a wrecked vehicle will be shown. Example:

A wrecked police car with Roachvile PD markings is here.

Keep Votes

  1. Author Vote Derp. Glenstone 05:52, 23 June 2007 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill- Most cars by now have very dead batteries. Odds are they were left on in the panic when the outbreak started.--Dragon fang 05:46, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  2. Kill The Only Reason that I'm voting kill, not spam is the possibility of listening to cars in your car. Here in my car/i feel safest of all/I can lock all my doors/It's the only way to live/In cars....--Seventythree 11:42, 23 June 2007 (BST)

Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. spam - i dont normally vote spam but this is just that bad....--'BPTmz 06:01, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  2. Spam -- Dude, sorry but no. You don't use the template, you suggest something that is far, far from simple (not only cars, but now keys? do they even match a particular car?), and honestly... driving zombies?? ~m T! 06:03, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Zombies can open doors. And I put "you find the keys to an ambulance". Yes, you need certain keys for certain cars. Glenstone 06:08, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Back button also erased the template I put in. Plus, "LOL NOT USING A TEMPLATE" isn't a valid argument, IMO.
  3. Spam/Dupe - Spam, because this suggestion is annoying and you didn't use the template. Dupe because Cars and stuff have been put forward many times. Heres the link to one car system, and while they may be different, they both involve putting cars in. Cars.Also, to comment back on votes, use #: because just using : will break the voting system -- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 06:12, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Fine. Please tell me how it's annoying. Glenstone 06:14, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Only once you RE right. :P Just kidding. It's annoying for many reasons. I will not list them all so don't ask, but one of them is because of this "they must find the keys within the building (example: searching the building, you find the keys to an ambulance)." What makes you think after close to 2 years, the keys to a car are gonna be inside a building near the car? Also, here is another one "And for the necrosisly challenged: Memories of Life. Driving is three AP. You don't need a key or hotwiring. You smash the engine to run. (BUT GLENSTONE THAT'S NOT REALISTIC - But since when has been UD been realistic?)". There is a limit to unrealistic-ness, and besides, it's completely out of genre.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 06:18, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Heh. Thanks, that clears things up. Glenstone 06:23, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Well, if that wasn't sarcasm (it's so hard to be sure on the internet) than your welcome. If it is, then :P. No need to re back for this. Also, remember the Preview button, that way you can catch your mistakes before you post them (like forgetting your signature ;) )-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 06:26, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Wasn't being sarcastic, just to clear that up. :P Glenstone 06:50, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  4. La la la - I don't wanna get trapped in a car in UD. Or cruise around in wrecked boring. Also, I don't like the radio idea or the general tone of this suggestion.--Lachryma 06:30, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    You can exit them, you know. Glenstone 06:37, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Your justification should go under kill, too. And what do you mean by tone? Glenstone 06:40, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    The exiting car thingy isn't my concern, really. The whole 'yelling at your readers in all caps' thing is. And the distinct lack of a point to this suggestion also adds to its spam-ness.--Lachryma 06:44, 23 June 2007 (BST)
    Hmm. Yelling at people in caps? Oh sure, I used caps, but I'm not flaming anyone. And if you want a point, fine. Faster transportation. Glenstone 06:50, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  5. Spam - Completely unsuited to the game and of no real value. --The Hierophant 09:02, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  6. Spam - all of above --Duke GarlandTLCD SSZ 09:20, 23 June 2007 (BST
  7. Spam - It just makes no sense! "Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions" - Thomas Jefferson. - Werewolf32 12:45, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  8. Spam - Cars.CARS?!In a text based browser game? --User:Axe27/Sig 17:00, 23 June 2007 (BST)
  9. Spam - BUT LOL GLENSTONE THEY'RE TOO POWERFUL. --Magentaine 17:11, 23 June 2007 (BST)
