    Well yes, zombies don't really pose a threat to a train, but debris, malfunctioning or non functioning switch tracks, and failing infrastructure do.

    me and my friend found a really damaged chopper in elektro so we were just killing everyone on sight while trying to find parts, we'd found fuel but not much else so we were still looking when suddenly we hear a whizzing noise and the fucking chopper takes off and flies away
    My friends drew out the Bandits from the Elektro fire station and I climbed a ladder onto the roof to steal their huey, the problem was that I didn't notice the extremely low fuel counter, so as I took off and flew towards the flare they popped to pick them up, I ran out of fuel and crashed into a building, landing on all 3 of them.
    SO IT WAS YOU

    I'm living on Stalinsky Island. It is a quiet life where I shoot maybe three zombies every respawn cycle, and reap the rewards of ~4-5 spawns, civilian and industrial. You could always swim out here, but be forewarned as you will lose your backpack and everything in your primary slots.

    My group of friends and I are fucking pro at this game, we all have Aks's and atlas packs with a shit ton of medical supplies and the best stuff you can get, and have been alive for days now. Surprisingly we've only come across 2 humans, but never any real scary situation with them. The scary part about this mod is that you're probably always being watched, luckily our group is of 3 people including me, and I'm pretty sure people don't mess around with groups. It would kind of suck to be by yourself in this mod.

    I don't picture a train working too well just because of the danger of other humans waiting for the train to arrive at some spots.

    The whole tank thing wouldn't really work since the only place that spawns AT4's is the NW airfield, and whoever owned the tank could just camp it until the end of time

    Yeah, I just got to the Dam on the far north part of the map. I fell into the water and lost everything. It's like going to Las Vegas and getting mugged as soon as you turn onto the strip.

    That would destroy the atmosphere. There are 49 other players who would kill for my equipment. I wouldn't like to worry about a tank ruining my day too.

    Also imagine a bandit group that stockpiles RPGs.

    When I started playing I used to group up with random people and kill useless bandits when they'd fire at me. Now I don't bat an eyelid at massacring groups of survivors and stealing their medical gear and food.

    There's just nothing much to do when you are with a group that is fully kitted out with Mk48s, DMRs, M16M203s, NVG, GPS and Coyote Elites except murder people. It's also incredibly easy to find people if you wait near a town for a couple of minutes and listen for gunshots.

    God this game is intense. I was in Zub looking for loot. I was climbing the stairs and a zombie popped out, scaring the crap out of me and causing me to fall down the steps several floors. I managed to patch myself up, and I threw a flare I just found to lighten it up. Worth it for binocs and a knife, along with some food.

    I thought I was a goner for sure.

    the only acceptable train would be small hancar/draisine or similar track motor car
    also maybe the human force powered one ;)

    the problem is too much work involved

    After 8 hours playing all night with my brother we had a great loot, I shot two bandits that got in a small skirmish with us, then after all of that I accidentally shoot my brother trying to defend him from a zombie.

    Then shortly later I'm ganked by another bandit.

    I was in a group of 4 in Elektro. We stopped at the hospital to pick up some blood packs, One of us was shooting the window to break it when another guy from our group walked in front of him and instantly got hit in the back of the head and died. It made the shooter into a bandit, so we had to leave the city before anyone killed him.

    Also is it bad that the possibility of this mod being remade for ArmA 3 is the main reason I'm looking forward to the game

    They would need to be beyond rare.
    Well, that was the idea. People think that when I say "There should be -a- tank" I mean there are like four or five and pretty easy to fix.

    Basically a tank would be one of the hardest vehicles in-game to repair and tank shells would be just as rare as RPG's if not more scarce. (Considering how rare RPG's are consider that) they'd eat jerry cans for breakfast and would have to be supplied with M249 ammunition to make the machine gun work (guy using it is pretty exposed, remember.)

    It's more of a day. "Okay, we spent a week getting this thing fixed up, we've got two shots. Let's save it for a rainy day." And "Oh shit Bandit Group #2 has declared our group, Bandit #1's extermination but I know where their base is! Let's end this shit. Get the keys."

    It's like. Right now what are the biggest objectives? Survive. Group up. Make a base. Loot. Arm yourself to the teeth. Fix a boat, fix a car. Fix a helicopter (this is like the end game, you fix a helicopter and use it as a group with deadly effect) so the tank would be the very last thing a group would be able to do. It's basically a really scary looking APC though considering how rare I think tank shells should be.

    Edited:

    Well yes, zombies don't really pose a threat to a train, but debris, malfunctioning or non functioning switch tracks, and failing infrastructure do.
    It'd be funny to watch a bandit put razor wire in the tracks and jam up the train before lighting off a flare to have zombies swarm the stranded passengers. Or driving a car onto the tracks and setting up snipers in the woods and picking off survivors as the trains stops and they all dismount than reap the loot.

    As it is so far I've found zombies at every train station I've been too.

    I think the tank would work better than a train honestly. I'm just dreaming.

    But really. Keep things exactly as they are. Add tank shells to the game, make them extremely rare, add one tank to game and make it incredibly hard to repair using special parts. It'd balance it's self out.

    I honestly don't see how adding a single tank which would be idle 90% of the time ruins the mood. Chances are if someone fixed it you'd never even see it because of how time consuming it is to stockpile the fuel and ammunition to use it. The map is also huge.

    It's like saying "Helicopters ruin the theme of days" but so far I think it really adds to it when you see a group of bandits fly past in a helicopter with it's searchlights, hiding in the shadows until it passes. Or the video posted in the OP where the group uses them to loot stores. Or the med-evac team that was mentioned earlier in the thread.

    As it is none of us are devs or even have any connection with them. We're just being bros and saying "Wouldn't it be cool if X"

    Yeah I guess it's really a case by case basis. I wouldn't want to go too overboard on vehicles though, boats, cars and choppers covers a pretty good range of mobility in itself. All I'd really like is either more enterable buildings or maybe a few more zombie variants (I'd still love to see tough, high HP shamblers).

    It'd turn out to be either too difficult to get to make it worth it or overpowered and stupid.

    That and there'd be no way to stop the tank considering how rare a rocket launcher is (if there even is one yet).

    So apparently you can escape the debug zone by running east to Kamenka.

    I kept spawning in the water. I probably could've swam to shore but I would've lost all my items if I did that.

    Enterable buildings are much more important than anything at this point aside from bug fixes. I don't honestly like the idea of zombie variants, seems like we're bordering on cliche and it's hard enough to survive if your a newbie. Maybe a rare soldier zed that is more resistant to body shots due to armor but even than eh.

    A tank would just not fit. And assuming it would require as much as maintnance as you describe then even adding one would be pretty useless. Its rare, its scarce and maintaing it would require countless of hours of repair and refuel. Im pretty sure that would require quite a significant amount of effort to properly code in and then balance it out which would take months because it's rare as fuck. Its not worth it.

    Also we do have a connection to the dev, he regularly visits the thread and sometimes replies as well.

    Had some good fun on US7 last night, teamed up with 6 guys and completely ransacked Elektro. We were gonna make a car and stay near Stary before clearing out the airfield but it was 3am at this point, and 4 hours of sleep for college is pushing it.

    Man I love this mod.
