One of the crucial wonderful issues about Mission Zomboid is how actually intimidating it may be, regardless of the outwardly pleasant visuals. Nevertheless, the developer of The Indie Stone plans to make issues a bit of scarier – with some upcoming modifications to the essential know-how of the survival recreation, we are going to quickly be confronted with the exploration of underground ranges, similar to basements and sewers. And they are going to be very very darkish.

Mission Zomboid Construct 42 remains to be a great distance off, and it “will arrive a big period of time after Construct 41 is absolutely accomplished,” the builders clarify within the newest replace submit. This replace, as we’ve got already realized, will embrace some necessary modifications to the Mission Zomboid engine. Briefly, they embrace a brand new rendering pipeline that may enhance efficiency as new “items” of the setting are introduced into the sport, a brand new lighting system that permits mild to “naturally seep via doorways and home windows” for improved ambiance, and elimination of the prevailing eight-story header – the up to date engine will assist as much as 32 ranges in every chunk.

It is very important notice that these new ranges could also be larger or beneath floor stage.

Put all of it collectively, and you’ll have already concluded that there have been basements, semi-basements and / or sewers on the best way. You’ll be proper in case you did, as a result of that appears to be precisely what The Indie Stone has in thoughts. Watch this video:

Now the plan is to make use of a system that depends on a set of created basement and subfloor layouts at any time when somebody comes down the steps from floor stage. More often than not, you may be wandering round in a easy one-room basement with loot containers and different stuff mendacity round. Carry a flashlight (sorry, torch) with you, as a result of due to this new lighting system, it is going to be very darkish there.

Nevertheless, on uncommon events, you can too discover the doorway to a posh system of underground tunnels – bunker complexes or different related secret constructions could be turned on randomly. You by no means know, and this random system will imply that each playthrough will convey new surprises.

None of this has but been set in stone. Indie Stone says they’re additionally contemplating constructing investigative sewer networks within the Louisville space. With 32 ranges of vertical house to discover, there are many prospects.

Construct 42, as we have seen, can even barely enhance the dimensions of the Mission Zomboid map. Going ahead, we are able to count on NPCs with advanced and dynamic backstories when Construct 43 comes out.
