Incorrect Criterias

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time, but the criterias are more like guidelines. For example, the Doctor supposedly starts in a powered and repaired Hospital. However, when I created Yuki Onna, I started in a ruined and unpowered Hospital. I did get a screen, but that was lost when my PC was hacked about a month ago. But yea, you might want to recheck the criterias. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:01, 20 September 2010 (BST)

Maybe with the Big Bash wrecking so much infrastructure, you catched a brief glimpse when there was no lit VSB hospital, so alternate targets get chosen as in the case of the necrotechnician? -- Spiderzed 23:05, 20 September 2010 (BST)
I doubt it. At the time, I had DJSpinbad maintaining the barricade plans for Penny Heights. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:16, 20 September 2010 (BST)
On the 24th August, there were plenty of safe suburbs. A good deal of the south was still (before MOB rolled in a week or so ago). May have been an anomaly of some sort. e.g. when you started making the character, the hospital was powered, then it was blown out. Did you spend ages on the character creation screen or anything?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:42, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Not that I remember, but I don't think that'll be the case. I believe the system randomly selects a location after you hit the finish button. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:49, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Very odd. It may be partially based on a system where if there's a high low-level player concentration in one area, you're less likely to appear there, to prevent zerging. That was around the time that all of those low level GKers were zerging the place up, so it could be because of that.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:52, 20 September 2010 (BST)
I'd imagine that the game only recognises the status of a building at certain points in the day, falling back on the most recent "snapshot" of Malton when it chooses your spawn location. In between that time and your spawning, change could feasibly happen. Strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others 23:56, 20 September 2010 (BST)
Could be, but also the recent spawning zerging spate could be the issue. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 08:59, 21 September 2010 (BST)
I know this is old but, that does have an impact. Generally zombie density in an area and barricade density have a bigger one from what I've seen. Ransacked/ruined buildings have a higher priority than EHB++++. Zombies in an area have a big impact, and that's either by suburb or by spawngrid, something like mobile zombie groups in an area has a big impact on the spawn map, always has. --Karekmaps 2.0?! 12:43, 18 April 2012 (BST)

Starting Tips

Useful addendum? Have noticed before that there were tips upon the first change from harman to zambah and vice versa, but now I have records of the tips for the first change from harman to zombie. Or maybe the starting/class change tips should be moved to a different page. -- Spiderzed 13:25, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

Sure. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 14:59, 4 January 2011 (UTC)
Researched the freshly revived corpse, only to learn that they don't get such a message -- Spiderzed 14:25, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

for reference

My new character just spawned into a VSB building with a zombie sitting inside it. I don't know if it's relevant in any way but it was interesting so just leaving this here. A ZOMBIE ANT 08:35, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

In fact, the place has about 12 survivors in it and the graffiti reads Do not kill our pet zombie Mark 5. Thanks!.
I think I might be starting to enjoy this place. A ZOMBIE ANT 08:43, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
