ok good start, should something be added about the fact that the reduced attack rates are for both survivors and zombies? also we should start that list of dark buildings.--'BPTmz 21:42, 28 May 2008 (BST)

The real question is, why have my attack percentages been quartered, rather than halved? I'm currently at 12.5%, rather than my usual 50%.. Necrodeus 09:38, 29 May 2008 (BST)

provide more info on, at least, whether you're survivor or zombie and what weapon this percentage stands for --~~~~ [talk] 13:00, 29 May 2008 (BST)
I concur with Necrodeus. I'm a survivor and after ~50 shots of my pistol (65% to hit), I only hit 9 times in a darkened building.--Terry S 02:03, 30 May 2008 (BST)
Let me clarify here, I play Zombie, and thw first day the change was implemented, I found myself with a 12.5% chance of hitting, rather than my usual 50% for having maxed out attacks. However, it then reverted to half, and I haven't seen it since. But just to say - I hate this update. I seem to come across dark buildings all too often, and as a zombie player I can't even light them. I just find it very annoying. -- Necrodeus 17:33, 7 June 2008 (BST)

What's the point of making this change affect only clubs, banks and cinemas? It's not like there's anything worth searching for in them anyway and other that being used as entry points, these buildings are pretty much entirely useless anyway. It's nice it affects armories, but there's only 2 in the whole city I believe. Also, I think the darkness penalty should be removed from zombies who have successfully landed tangling grasp on a target since sight would no longer play a part in whether they'd land an attack or not. --Demnos

The point is to have more locational variety / player effects on locations. I suspect that Kevan might expand the effect to malls (which notoriously lack windows) or some such if it plays well in the current buildings. And, from my experience, tangling grasp does EXACTLY what you say. I'm confident enough of this fact that I edited the page to mention it. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 21:39, 29 May 2008 (BST)

This is all quite funny. Demnos clearly wants even more zombie favortism. Furthermore, the explanation for the darkness is that skylights are being covered. Clubs, banks, and cinemas generally lack skylights. As do military Armories. Malls and large building; however, generally benefit greatly from natural lighting. To put it simply, the desires of the game admins is pretty obvious. (added by shemoves)

Well first of all, this is a zombie apocalypse game yet 2/3 of the population is still human so I don't see this as zombie favoritism. Besides, you give semi-realistic reasons as to why some buildings stay lit and then call a very realistic point about tangling in darkness wanting more favoritism. Have you ever been in a mall with the power off, even in broad daylight they are dark. You might have a few lit patches in the hallways due to the skylights but 90% of the mall, especially the stores, would be pitch black.--Demnos

Umm, the main Dark page says that the factory isn't affected by darkness. I was in the factory at 18,44 earlier, looking for a generator. It took a lot of Ap to find one, because the building was dark. It was ruined and I tried to repair it, but I couldn't. I just went back to get a screenshot, it had zombies inside, and didn't say it was dark. Has anyone else noticed this with factories?--Tigersight

Interesting, I've never seen this happen, next time if you see this happen, be sure to grab a screenshot and send it to Bug Reports. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 04:25, 1 September 2009 (BST)
It's perfectly possible you got unlucky and simply didn't find a generator inside a non-lit ruined building instead of a ruined dark one. Ruined buildings look a bit like their dark cousins, and they both impact search rates, but they aren't the same thing. Did you have a toolbox with you at the time you attempted the repair? Maybe you also tried to repair just as a/the zombie waltzed in and didn't notice (or the page didn't refresh properly)... I've never seen anything like this either. --Bob Boberton TF / DW Littlemudkipsig.gif 04:32, 1 September 2009 (BST)
I have a toolbox. I tried to fix the building to help my search chances, but it said it was dark, so I couldn't. And all of my searches came back like searches in dark buildings.--Tigersight
I got a screenshot of someone else saying they searched a dark factory. --Tigersight 22:30, 7 September 2009 (BST)

No Repair

So... as i understand this, if a building is dark, it can NEVER be repaired? WTF is this? --DoctorRevive 11:53, 29 May 2008 (BST)

You have to hook up a genny and then repair. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:55, 29 May 2008 (BST)
Does the generator also have to be fueled? Or is a simple generator sufficient? --Jen 17:16, 29 May 2008 (BST)
Fueled. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:22, 29 May 2008 (BST)
I'm in a fueled club, and it's still too dark. Conniving 22:05, 29 May 2008 (BST) >_>

Ditto, I was in a 'dark' building with a powered genny and it said it was too dark to fix. It also requires 3 AP to fix. much AP does it take for a zombie to ruin a building? This update gives further advantage to the zombies...but maybe that is the point. (added by shemoves)

Definitely something's amiss. Buildings report as "dark" but still say that a generator is running. Attempts to repair come back with "Too dark to repair". Even refueling the genny does nothing. Brooooken. - Wyeast 01:48, 30 May 2008 (GMT)

Was bug. Is fixed. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 20:24, 30 May 2008 (BST)

It also seems that repair effort increases rather quickly; yesterday it would have taken 2AP to repair giles cinema (59,81), today it says 3AP. Theres a fueled genny. Outside it says ruined and lit, inside it says "The building is too dark for full repair work." --Swank 04:24, 30 May 2008 (BST)

For the love of all that is Holy can we please implement flashlights into the game? Like big industrial flashlights that have 5% encumbrance, if needs be requires batteries, can be used as a weapon with a 10% hit rate and 1 damage, and most importantly will let you see in the dark. -- Rogueboy 11:37, March 06 2009 (UFC)

I thinl dark, darkness, and dark building should all re-direct here. Its a shame you can't use key-words on wiki pages, because it would be good if any of the terms th game uses (such as "lights out") also lead here.

"You generally will have to set up and fuel a generator before repairing a dark building that has been ruined."

Is there any reason for the word "generally" to be there? Is it theoretically possible to repair a dark, ruined building without a generator? --Jen 00:25, 4 June 2008 (BST)

Yes, because it is theoretically possible to find a ruined cinema, bank, club, or armory that already has a generator running inside, say if zombies ruined it but did not kill the generator before moving on. It wouldn't technically be a dark building (as it is lit), but it would look exactly like one on the map (would show as a ruin only- there is no special display for ruins with power) to anybody outside the building (not sure what the interior would look like - ruined but not dark, I suspect). In such cases, you NEED to read the text description to tell the difference. Also, some people seem to be calling any building that CAN be dark a "dark building" regardless of whether it has power. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 09:19, 6 June 2008 (BST)
So, basically..."In order to repair a dark building that has been ruined, a fueled generator must be present in the building"? (It's not the clearest syntax ever. But it replaces "generally will have to" with more precise information). I suppose I assumed that, if there was a generator already in the building (and perhaps even running!), the "set up and fuel a generator" part of the repair process had already been taken care of. Which is why the addition of "generally" confused me quite a bit. --Jen 03:01, 7 June 2008 (BST)
Would work fine for me. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 06:24, 7 June 2008 (BST)

Grip descriptions

You attack HellAngel Holly in the darkness, but miss.

Your attack does no damage. HellAngel Holly slips out of your grip and into the darkness.

eh... this should make it into the article. If i understand right the grip allows you to do non-halved damage, but once they've "slipped into darkness" it's half again. right...? --~~~~ [talk] 11:30, 8 June 2008 (BST)

That's my impression, but (as I noted in the article) its hard to demonstrate simply by looking at the game screen; you need statistical evidence. However, seeing text like the above is a big part of what lead me to suspect this. Maybe we could collect some statistics here to confirm / disprove the hypothesis? I'll set up a table below. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 21:40, 8 June 2008 (BST)
The table looks confusing. An example row would be great. --~~~~ [talk] 07:42, 9 June 2008 (BST)
As soone as I actually have some data. Its pretty simple- like a search table. Say your maxed out zombie spends 35 AP total attacking. 5 of those are bites, all made after you've gotten a grip, and 2 hit. That would give the line "Bite: 30% | 0/0 | 2/5". For your 30 claw attacks, say 15 were without grasp (4 hits) and 20 were with grasp (for 12 hits). That would give the line "Claw: 50% | 4/15 | 12/20".
Ah, I see why it was confusing now- my column headers were bad. I've fixed that, and have been cracking dark buildings looking for data. So far they have all been empty. So much for worries about survivors using them as forts.  :P SIM Core Map.png Swiers 09:42, 9 June 2008 (BST)

Statistics for Zombie Attacks in the Dark

Use the table below to record your zombie's results when attacking in the dark. Be sure to create a NEW ROW for each type of attack you make; if in the course of spending 30 AP attacking, you make 25 claw attacks and 5 bite attacks, that would require two different rows.

Conclusions / Anaylisis

My hypothesis from the above data is that the hit rate for maxed claws in the dark is 25%, and 35% once a grip has been established. Does anybody know enough statistics to figure out if / how well the above data supports that hypothesis? Having the values come so close after "only" 132 and 80 tests seems unlikely if the hypothesis wrong, but I don't know how to use chi-squares to figure out HOW unlikely. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 19:45, 12 June 2008 (BST)

I'd be inclined to trust the first one. It's a half accuracy attack as expected, and the sample size isn't too bad, and we know that human nature means it's probably a nice value like that. The second value needs more samples before you put a claim on 35% methinks. I mean, a report of 3/3 drives it up to 40%. And since the pRNG is less random than a coin with 2 heads, it might just happen. This all said, you could keep collecting and put some 'tentative' figures on the page. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 20:31, 12 June 2008 (BST)

Tangling Grasp

This still implies pretty strongly that there is a special effect, just that there are no current numbers for it. This is getting to the point where it's the new "Ransacks aren't searchable", or, better yet, the new "Interference requires Lurching Gait" and we shouldn't be encouraging assumptions without evidence being mentioned in articles as long as they use indefinite language.--Karekmaps?! 22:37, 9 June 2008 (BST)

Completely leaving it out implies that it provides no bonus, or that the bonus is also cut in half, which we simply don't know; that's all I intended it to say. I've been meaning to ask Kevan just what the intended / implemented effect is, but who knows. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 22:43, 9 June 2008 (BST)
My point is that verification is needed that it exists, not the other way around.--Karekmaps?! 00:06, 10 June 2008 (BST)
The games rules and flavor text strongly indicate that SOME effect exists. It may be that the normal 60% gets cut to 30%, it may be that Tangling Grasp is so buggy we'll never be able to tell with crude statistics. I think saying there is an effect, but its unknown, is reasonable. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 04:39, 10 June 2008 (BST)

Strangely, the ?dump button still appears when dead bodies are present; it is only the scene description that is altered.

Zombie Tactic

I don't think this is right for a non-POV page, so I'm putting it here instead. Feel free to comment / flame. Zombie tag teams -- Necrodeus 02:43, 8 July 2008 (BST)

A bad idea at least as unbalanced as it is ...

Top attack of zeds will be 25%, if Tangling Grasp works (the percentage information is not changed so player has no information = doesn't work) zeds only have hand to hand skills, they can't turn the light on and the final nail in the coffin is that they will lose to a living human with a shotgun in the Dark, somehow it doesn't seem fair or even realistic... I was so annoyed by the "feature" that I finally registered myself so I could report it as a bug (the information isn't very visible to users), I don't favor any of the teams/side, I play in character, please do add some equilibrium to this thing... --Panic2k8 17:45, 8 July 2008 (BST)

Tangling grasp does work, and bumps the rate to 35% when applicable - see the extensive analysis above, as well as Kevan's direct confirmation. If you factor in the cost of searching up ammo (even in a powered mall with bargain hunting) survivors spend more AP to do the same damage in the dark than zombies do.
In fact, all your above complaints apply equally in normal buildings. In lit buildings, the percentage information is not changed so player has no information. A zombie will lose to a living human with a shotgun in a lit building. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 18:38, 8 July 2008 (BST)
I pretty sure I used Tangling Grasp and no visible bonus was added to attacks, so if it exists it is invisible to players, that's what I wrote above. You seem pretty one sided on your factoring you seem to be forgetting that zeds do have a lot of other handicaps to. If you look to things 1 on 1 zombies are the underdog, their strength is on numbers (if available), since most of the time they are forced in a position of hunter (they can't hide and build protections) and the game makes it very hard for them to coordinate, if living players cooperate effectively (and they have the means to), there would be no chance for zombies. In any case I stand by my affirmation that as it is the Dark is unbalanced in detriment to zombies, one needs to go as far as state that humans play defense have a unmatched ability to coordination and with this dark effect they also now have strongholds or at least safe houses across the city (it all depends on what equipment they have) and it is not very realistic I agree that a zombie should lose to a living human with a shotgun in a lit building, but not in a dark one. --Panic2k8 19:13, 8 July 2008 (BST)
Unless you're in monroeville, where dark buildings are the norm and the zombies do win. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 19:25, 8 July 2008 (BST)
Please refer to my comment above, what I have to say about the darkness update, and my suggestion of a zombie tactic. I agree that one on one, humans and survivors have it pretty much as bad as each other, at least, inasmuch as such a fight is always slightly balanced due to a survivors need to expend AP looking for ammo etc, but this doesn't take in the whole picture.

Not anything specific, no, but I doubt he meant the flavour messages with "Barricading is also affected.". The only proof we have at the time is that the flavour's changed, nothing else. Anecdotes aren't proof. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 11:47, 27 August 2008 (BST)
Since there can never be anything other than "anecdotal evidence" in regards to this, I've posted the question directly to Kevan. Hopefully, he will answer it, one way or the other. --WanYao 12:12, 27 August 2008 (BST)
Ummm, yes there can be other than anecdotal evidence. Open your notepad, start barricading in dark buildings and record some numbers. It's called research. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 12:20, 27 August 2008 (BST)
Theoretical probability is bullshit. If you had a bag with 10 black marbles and 5 red marbles and you pulled out a marble 20 times, replacing it each time, and every marble you pulled out was red, doesn't mean that the chances of getting a red marble are greater - in fact they're clearly half - you've just had a run of "bad" luck. Fuck research, I want answers!--Nallan (Talk) 14:56, 27 August 2008 (BST)
You absolutely CAN do such research. What you do is run an experiment. Every experiment has a hypothesis. In the above case, the hypothesis would be that there are 10 black and 5 red marbles, and hence the chance of drawing a red marble is 33.33% (not half). Drawing 10 red marbles in a row would be so extremely unlikely in that case that it tells you you hypothesis is likely wrong; statistics lets you calculate how likely it is to be wrong. That might not be a small enough chance to constitute a disproof in this case, and 10 draws does allow for such flukes (the chance of such flukes can also be calculated)- but with 100 or so draws, you'd get a very reliable indicator. It worked above for tangling grasp. Then again, Kevan also answered that question. SIM Core Map.png Swiers 15:14, 27 August 2008 (BST)

Of course you can run an experiment... But, gee, from his attitude I wonder what Midianian would need before it stops being "anecdotal": I mean we now have three people saying it does affect barricades -- and one provided some stats. But that's not good enough for Midianian... And, it's not exactly EASY to find the circumstances to conduct this experiment, it's not exactly like it happens every second building or something... nor is it easy and simple to create the circumstances for it. Sheesh, people, go play on the street and do an experiment how long it takes for you to get squished, if SCIENCE is that important to you... Actually, that just to Midianian and Aeon17x, not the rest of you. --WanYao 21:18, 27 August 2008 (BST)

Provided stats? Do you mean the "...of four attempts two returned..."? Really, four tries. I just flipped a coin four times, and it came three times heads, once tails. Does this mean the chances of getting heads is 75%? No, that's an anomaly brought on by ridiculously low numbers. Your experiment below gives much better results, though. Finding dark buildings to barricade is much easier than finding unransacked buildings with more than one zombie inside, yet strangely I managed to conduct over 300 tests in that kind of environment. You don't need nearly that many to say there's some kind of effect, but you do need more than four, and more than "it feels like it". Like, say, 20? ;) --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 09:09, 28 August 2008 (BST)
I think you're arguing just for the sake of arguing. --WanYao 09:24, 28 August 2008 (BST)
Not arguing at all. Just explaining my attitude and telling you "what Midianian would need before it stops being "anecdotal"". You were wondering about it, after all. --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 10:13, 28 August 2008 (BST)

Results of 20 barricade attempts in a dark building, beginning at Loosely Barricaded.

  • One "normal" failure[1]. This was not until my very last attempt, at QSB.
  • 7 successes, that look like this. These were, oddly, mostly at higher levels around QSB.
  • 12 failures, every single last one of which looked like this.

And... YES there is a zombie inside... Which should not affect barricading, and in any event none of the messages were about him lurching in the way: you get those in dark buildings, a different message if you're intercepted. Every fail message I received was as above.

... and 4 more cade attempts, 2 of which were successful, the other resulting in that "you fumble around in the darkness" thing.

You have my evidence. You have Father Thompson's evidence. You have Finis' anecdotal report. Is that good enough for you yet? I mean did you seriously think I just made this shit up when I changed the wiki entry?? --WanYao 22:15, 27 August 2008 (BST)

I'd say that's reasonable anecdotal evidence to suggest that there is SOME effect. It (plus other known effects) suggests the effect is likely to be that half of all cade build attempts result in fumbling in the dark. Posting that as a theory and awaiting Kevan's reply seems reasonable. Its certainly not as bad as my original tangling grasp theory.... SIM Core Map.png Swiers 23:42, 27 August 2008 (BST)

Tangling Grasp in the Dark: Changes from August 16 2010 Update

There does not appear to have been a change made to the Tangling Grasp discussion in this article since the 8/16/2010 UD update, which stated: "Zombies are lurching into the deepest shadows of dark buildings, making it harder to escape their tangling grasp in the dark." Since then, I have noticed a definite propensity for my tangling grasps NOT to fail in the dark.... I just spent 45AP attacking harmanz in a darkened Cinema. My results (attacking only with hands) are:

Attack + miss x4 Attack + grab -- successful entanglement THEN: Next 26AP spent attacking. 16 hits, 10 misses. NO dropped entanglement -- kept entangled until I killed a survivor who had started out at 50HP.

Started attacking next survivor with 56HP.

Miss x2 Attack + grab -- successful entanglement THEN: Next 11AP spent attacking. 7 hits, 4 misses. NO dropped entanglement once again. Survivor ended up at 32HP when I ran out of AP.

So, out of 37AP attacking while Tangling Grasp was in effect, I had 23 hits, and only 14 misses, for an approximately 62% hit rate. This is in line with the documented 57% hit rate in non-dark situations! I also had ZERO dropped Tangling Grasps, which would seem highly unlikely out of 37AP in non-dark circumstances. It seems that this change made quite a buff for Zeds in dark buildings -- possibly taking away the Dark penalty completely for zombies with Tangling Grasp -- in fact, it makes the Dark better, since Tangling Grasp seems to be "stickier" than anywhere else! Please, can somebody help conduct more research? I will continue to report back on this issue.... lots of dark buildings to attack! --BadgerW 18:57, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
