Dull isn't it. If you down vote at least remark why.

 

I like the River of Life. Finding water in a city split in two by a river is perplexing. If we've figured out how to build a recycler we can probably figure out a purifier

oh look,a veteran user
 

 


I got some ideal book covers for them but I can't include them yet cause idk how to use photoshop so...I'll jusT post them on what they will look like word by word:
1)Hunt in Packs-5 wolves howling with the moon on the background

2)Overequipped-just replace the guy running w/ a knife around by Rambo :D

3)Great Times-well built structure(something with emblematic value) on the background with people walking by happily

4)River of Life-it's up to you people

5)Refining Oil-an oil rig on the background and an oil tanker too

6)Kill them All!-Early DZ survivors trying to survive a horde rush while shooting

7)Fastest Way Possible-I got this one from a movie:quicksilver running with his headphones on
8)Being Picky-a man picking on which item he wants to bring with him(a flashlight or a rope)



if you got better ones,quote on this reply

I really hope that book will solve the water problems that DZ users encounter :)

and thanks for replying

Finally some nice book ideas. Unlike the ones that request for a DMU/book version of it for fuel or temporary.

 

The book descriptions could use a bit of help, but none the less not bad ideas :)

Other than your childish tags and your overreaction to a single downvote, I think some of these books are good ideas. Some are rather pointless (Hunting in packs for example), but for the most part I think these should definitely be added.

I really like the water one, it's one of my biggest annoyances in the game. Really makes no sense to be this hard. The "oposite day" books were kind of funny even if something I would never use. The last one is tough one, could be good if there was a restriction so that it only applies on manual missions.

Here you go people:

1)Hunt in Packs

      Purpose:to even out the distribution of EXP among survivors
      When To Use:use this on missions and raid alike if you got an uneven EXP distribution

      Motto:"Unified Effort,Unified Experience"

2)Overequipped

      Purpose:To Use higher level weapons,a support book for "Trained"
      When To Use:use this if it's not enough,and always use this on raiding,it can negate those negative effects

      Motto:"Just in case that other people outclass us"

3)Great Times

      Purpose:support book for UCS,also for autos(if you don't have a DMU,you poor thing),also for infected bounties(when doing it ofc)
      When To Use:when it's needed

      Motto:"Chill in the Apocalypse"

4)River of Life

      Purpose:to increase the chance to scavenge water(the most annoying thing in DZ,next to great uniques and unique tokens)
      When To Use:when you don't have enough water and needed for the war task

      Motto:"let it flow..."

5)Refining Oil

      Purpose:to keep up your fuel up and runnin' :)
      When To Use:use this if you wanted to

      Motto:"And this is why we have chemistry people"

6)Kill them All!

      Purpose:support book for "Anatomy 101",also aids for IB's
      When To Use:use it when you need to finish bounties,and if you need extra firepower
      Motto:"let the bodies hit the floor"

7)Fastest Way Possible

      Purpose:self explanatory
      When To Use:use it when you need to be fast(don't do drugs kids)

      Motto:"be like Flash,be fast(except on your sex life)"
8)Being Picky

      Purpose:to lessen those trashworthy items you don't really need
      When To Use:use this when your inventory is almost full and you need that unique gun/gear

I'll remove this after 3 days and replace them with the table

 

Is this meant to build suspense? If you are going to put in a table version of what you have already said, why not just do it?

 

I can't imagine using any of the books your proposed in the Original Post and the "controversial one";

 

And the last but not the least:Controversial Book/s(controvesial in a way that it/they could potentially break the game)

 

1)Fastest Way Possible-Mission Book(still needs an approval of publication :D )

    Description:Hurrying is a lifestyle that suits on the ever evolving world of technology
    Effects(Permanent Version):               
      *Decreases Return Times by 50%
      *Decreases Action Times by 50%

      *Decreases Mission Times by 50%

    Effects(Timed Version):               
      *Decreases Return Times by 60%
      *Decreases Action Times by 75%

      *Decreases Mission Times by 70%

 

Half the mission time but a half DMU and scavenging takes half the time/

 

Really?

Comments:

 

"kill them all" - good idea if someone needs the extra damage. a bit like Anatomy 101.

"river of life" - the best book of them all. water is quite scarce even with 2 rivers, so it can help a lot.

"refining oil" - a buffed Peak Oil. maybe make the perm ones be only in boxes so the market won't be flooded.

 

"fastest way possible" - perm version will break the game, just my comment. make them last for, say, 12 hours max.

"being picky" - I think 10 to 20 percent is too much. maybe a little less?

and if you don't want to use my books,Okay then(I don't control your life,it's up to you anyway ^_^)

Without trying to be too harsh;

 

If you haven't finished something, why start the post?

Why make posts saying "I am going to do this", why not do it or keep quiet until you have the time to actually do it?

Would you hand in an essay plan for your schoolwork and expect to get full credit for an essay?

What makes you think any of "your books" will make it into the game? 

 

In this thread, 8 of 16 posts (including this one) are by you. Maybe that should make you consider that people aren't such a great fan of your idea.

 

I have no idea at all what the below post was all about or why you think it is a rule people have to answer/explain why they voted for something either way. It just makes you seem needy and self righteous

 

Spotted another hater again(or his alt account I suppose)
the guy didn't even replied(it's a rule that if you hate something,you better have an explanation for it or it'll become a blind hate towards that someone/something)

I monitor the upvote-downvote ratio guys(so far,6 ups,2 downs)

 

 

"Every breath you take

 Every move you make
 Every bond you break

 Every step you take

 I'll be watching you..."

 

As a final point, why include "kill your self" and "leave me alone" as tags? 

 

The books you have proposed offer nothing new to the game.

I actually lied about that one,I got assignments and finished all of them before I started making this post

 

Why make posts saying "I am going to do this", why not do it or keep quiet until you have the time to actually do it?

cause I don't expect this to reach my deadline plan for this anyway(nov.25),after that date,I'll be bombared by deadlines again,my life is full of deadlines that I became one of them,thus having this behaviour(always rushing unplanned,unprepared,improvising all the way,just to keep up to the majority(sucks doesn't it?),and I rely most of your feedback to make the books more doable i.e. hunting in packs book---->you said it's useless right?

What makes you think any of "your books" will make it into the game? 

Nothing/no expectations,not gonna expect them to reach on the game nor even give a shit about them in case they got implemented(which will never happen,let's be realistic here)

In this thread, 8 of 16 posts (including this one) are by you. Maybe that should make you consider that people aren't such a great fan of your idea.

hmmm...never thought of that one,the deletion one ofc(I know that they're(the users that replied and upvoted) not there for the whole post,just that water one),I'll delete some of them(the replies,not the users,can't do that one,I'm not a God/one of the dev teams)
 

I placed the tags just to fill up the quota

and yeah,I know that they offer nothing for the game,not now,nor ever(the hell I placed that disclaimer for ,you know what I'm saying?)

Maybe yes... I can't wait for other creative idea of the original post :)

Especially the parts of Kill them all,If that book would added to the DZ,I hope this book would make the IB become slightly easier.(?)

About other users said that these book doesn't offer this game any new. But I barely agree on this. I don't think all the update must be necessary to bring so many new experience to us. Why we can't  just suggest some new idea for the book? They may bring benefit to the players at some point or being a double-edged sword to them.That is the role of book,ain't it? Although I think they still able to bring other unusual game experience for us. Not that boring at all :c

In my opinion,these book is still a good idea. I hope Con would take a look on the suggestion by the original post. :)
