Greetings! I am Azi Dahaka, leader of the Warlords clan. I started playing in 2013 and I am very proud of how this game has expanded in the following years, and I am amazed at how Con used a lot of the original player suggestions (including mine, which was physical or mental illnesses for survivors) to build new features into the system.  

Sadly after joining the forums and posting every day for nearly a month without being a spammer, none of my posts have been approved by moderators and my account remains invisible and I am unable to format my submissions to stop the preview of hyperlinks, etc. This hosting website will only have this post be visible for one year so if someone could copy-paste it into the actual forum thread that would be greatly appreciated. 

This thread is for brainstorming what zones level 60 - 100 might be like, along with possible new elite types, zombie types, mission text, new buildings in the base, and possible weapon types. The devs are welcome to use the ideas from me or other players in this discussion. They are also free to ignore these suggestions if they feel like it and not do further level expansions (or expansions that are not like the ones proposed by players in this thread), since the events are also a fun (and much less code intensive) way to introduce new content into the game.

A note to others who might suggest or build on my ideas: art assets like furniture in buildings can be time-intensive (and thus expensive) to draw and model, which is why Con was very happy when a player in the early days suggested raider bases, since a lot of existing art assets could be re-appropriated.

Level 61 Zone: The monorail (sort of a necessary pre-zone)

A single 'train station' (using train station assets) sits in this small zone and no other buildings. On the map the elevated monorail track touches all future zones on the city minimap. If you visit this zone enough (as you also progress through the later zones) you will eventually RNG the three elite zombie types exclusive to this area, The 

Monorail Pilot (that is the correct term apparently), The Conductor, and The Traveler. If you kill all three of these elite zombies at least once, then your survivors will be able to "ride the monorail" and can return for free from five missions a day in the later zones (which will probably be necessary as the wait time will continue to grow for players without the deathmobile upgrade and the experience requirement for leveling up will continue to grow as well). Players with the deathmobile upgrade will not have to collect these elite kills, but will be free to do so if they wish since there is a new base building later in these suggestions that encourages hunting elite zombies (or just completing a mission for extra XP).  PLEASE NOTE: None of this is meant to reference the train scene in the film 'Matrix Revolutions', which I consider not to exist. It could be a reference to the South Korean zombie film 'Train to Busan' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyWuHv2-Abk or even the train ghost in the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore film 'Ghost'.

New Zombie / Elite Zombie types:

(Exclusive) Monorail Pilot  (zany adventure starring a monorail driver http://ragnerdrok.com/2018/06/20/fate-accelerated-according-to-plan-a-head-above-the-competition/)

(Exclusive) Conductor http://royalentertainers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/550694_415168915180893_1079315169_n.jpeg

(Exclusive) The Traveler https://zombiecode.files.wordpress.com/2009/11/zombie_nast.jpg?w=497

New Buildings:

Monorail Train Station https://ih0.redbubble.net/image.59923840.6391/flat,550x550,075,f.u7.jpg

Quest Texts:

Slay the Monorail Pilot: We must find and dispatch the Mororail Pilot so that we can use the track [kill Elite pilot 0/1]

Slay the Conductor: We must find and dispatch the Conductor so that we can use the track [kill Elite Conductor 0/1]

Slay the Traveler: We must find and dispatch the Traveler so that we can use the track [kill Elite Traveler 0/1]

New Weapon Types: None that I can think of for this area

New Base Buildings: The player Harpango has made a number of fascinating building and trap suggestions in this iconic, influential, and popular thread:  

http://forum.conartistgames.com/index.php/topic/9406-oddities-of-the-dead-zone/

Level 62 Zone: The Burned Zone

This large zone of the city was engulfed in flames in the days after The Fall and no one was alive to put out the fire.

Special properties: This looks like a normal city zone from the map, except that in several cases there are empty spaces where buildings used to be. Scavenging actions in this zone takes twice as long (digging through the ashes) and you are three times more likely to find an empty container with no items inside since so much was destroyed (luckily none of the quests in this zone require you to find a certain amount of gear or weaponry). The building scenery and art assets such as shelves and furniture and map floors are hue-corrected to be blackened and charred, and there are many more blackened 'junk piles' in the surviving buildings than in previous zones with fewer wooden watchtowers on the street maps, etc. and more firetrucks and burned out cars in and outside of buildings from the firemen who rushed toward the inferno.

New Zombie / Elite Zombie types:

Charred zombie: normal fat zombie with blackened areas of burned flesh

Husk Zombie: completely black ashen zombie missing one arm and a head, with orange glowing embers still glowing in its torso and legs, sort of like this without the armor: https://stmed.net/sites/default/files/dark-souls-hd-wallpapers-32937-8312118.jpg

Fireman zombie: Zombie Fireman

New Buildings:

Union City Public Library: Map icon = Giant city library with roman edifice and columns. Standard library design with atrium, rare book collection, computerized checkout lines, and "stacks" of shelves with burned boxes on the floor where librarians tried to salvage important works or store supplies or camp in the ruins. Very slightly increased chance to find books with the multiplier still stacked with the Burned Zones scavenge penalty. (building description on city map) Only a few books remain in the burned out husk of Union City's great library.  

Union City Hall: A grand City Hall structure filled with burned emergency equipment. Auditorium within similar to police station auditorium with lots of chairs and city council podiums or table, a mayor's office like the police station offices, with many office desks for city workers. (building description on minimap) HERC seized the City Hall only to soon abandon it when the fires raged out of control in this part of the city.

Union City Tribune: Large burned office with charred printing press. (game description) The Dead Zone Gazette stole a lot of the machinery from this ruin.

Union City Central Post Office: Map icon = large building with another roman edifice and columns. map layout is similar to the back rooms of the large hardware store with a truck loading dock and large open lobby-space for lines of customers at the mail-windows. Many boxes on the floors. (building description on city minimap) There are probably still customers waiting in line to get some stamps. 

City Courthouse: Courtrooms and jail cells like the police stations. Good chance to find weapons. (building decription on city map) I find you guilty.

Town Square: A park layout with a few more water fountains, benches, and a central statue https://youtu.be/rgHiq8PYtgI?t=1m49s and more burn damage (building description on City Map) So much for the Union Days city festival.

(multiple instances) Burned Ruin: A normal building layout from another zone except without any walls, and much fewer searchable points of interest.

New Base Buildings: Media Center. This is a bookshelf in the base that works like the shoeboxes. The top shelf has some external hard drives that hold TV shows and movies, and there is also room on the shelf for books, comics, graphic novels, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes, laserdisks, a digital projector for movie nights, or old videogame systems. The player can specify what desired media items the survivors wish to salvage from a list of hundreds of parody titles/bizarre cultural artifacts like Allie McBeal http://ragnerdrok.com/2017/10/04/red-markets-the-missionaries-1-an-easy-retirement/ (or if that would be too labor intensive just have an expanded list of general media format categories, like POETRY, NINTENBO 74, COOKING MAGAZINES, etc. etc.). Like the shoeboxes, none of these media works count as tradeable items or inventory items. The media center items are 'scavenged at a rate 1/5th that of research materials, and can be consumed to heal an injury for free (and then are blacked out on the bookshelf and need to be scavenged again). Max charges = X (which improves with further upgrades to the media center).

1 it seems like you broke the formatting by posting too much in one go so most of it I can't read 2 con has more or less given up on the game 3 alot of your ideas have been suggested before and were shot down 4 all of this would take much too long to implement anyway since if you haven't heard flash is dying in 2020 and the game is flash based

1 How the fuck did you manage to break the format?

 

2 Hate to be this guy but the game is dead barely held together by the ally war, and to to be honest con has left the game pretty he doesn't even interact with us raising the cap to 100 is just not gonna happen.  Honestly I am surprised as hell that con hasn't given us a date when he is shutting the game down permanently. 

 

Con has provided me with hours of entertainment with his games I admit that, I hope what ever it does it makes him happy.

Well I did not read through that whole mess good effort on the "fan fiction". A cap raise to even lvl 70 would not make much sense. The weapons and gears we have now are pretty much maxed. Any weapons beyond lvl 60 would just have useless range that exceeds the games maps and triple 70 max resistance vests with a bunch of extra stats already exist.

as a example, if CON increase the cap level to 65, probably he just move the things from level 56-60 to 61-65 and put other stuff in the blank space.

Level increase in level cap is not really a good thing. What CON should do now is to port this game for Android for use for mobile devices as support for Flash is gone down the toilet.

Doesn't really matter, the ideas are pretty outlandish and just objectively bad to begin with.

 

I'm still quite impressed he managed to destroy the formatting so badly. Thumbs up for that one.
