Hello Con Artist users, I'm a new guy around here and I already have an idea. My idea (although this may have been already posted) is to insert Gas Stations into the game.  Specs would be:

 

Gas station

 

Supplies:

 

Food

Water

Fuel (ranging from 1 - 10 units)

Gear (sometimes, but not often)

Junk

 

If any of this seems like a bad idea, say so! Although I will agree, you do get F.U.E.L. Gen later in the game, it would be a MASSIVE help to those who don't have it yet.

 

Anyway, feel free to comment, and if it does get added, great. If not, well... we'll manage.

Rather than repeat what has been said on many other threads asking for gas stations, have a look at some of the other threads;

Don't really need any more sources of fuel now. We have infected bounties, survivor bounty cap raised to 100, individual war rewards and fuel can also be found in missions if you play regularly, and also looted from other fuel gen's. f2p players don't have much problem getting fuel easily now, they only have to play regularly.

 

Steven, keep playing and level up, and you can get fuel easily.

Comes up a lot and any way you want to swing it it always sounds like "I want more free fuel". I tried to offset the high reward by saying the map is subject to a constant rush with a large number of infected spawns (more than maps like the military base).

 

Even this was shot down, sure you will be under constant attack from a large number of running infected since its a constant rush but its still wanting more fuel.

I don't mind gas stations, since they could act like grocery stores, i just don't want them to generate any extra fuel. Since they'd obviously be the first place most people go look for fuel, they should also be the first place to run out of fuel.

The Fuel Generator isn't nearly the only way to get fuel. You can:

 

1) Raid other people's generators. (Reliable source of fuel in my opinion, since I raid a lot :P)

 

2) Bounty hunting, once you reach level 10. 

 

3) Survivor requests. These appear once every few days, and give a nice amount. 

 

4) Individual War Rewards.

 

5) Just play. You'll automatically get fuel if you play regularly. 

 

Seriously, getting FUEL is very easy now, with all these new updates and additions. It used to be much harder.

How high has this gotten on CA's list anyway? Anywhere on the maybe list, or is it just a flat-out no?

It's on the list but below pet dragons and flying pig bombers

 

In case you missed the sarcasm, it's a NO

I may be wrong .. but in this forumk exists a tendency to attack anyone who makes a post, regardless of the idea of the fund.
Again, maybe I'm wrong. But that's what I see.

In this forum (much like life) bad ideas are mocked.

 

Repeated bad ideas are mocked more and frustrate people.

Does your idea stand up under criticism?

 

This place would become insanely chaotic, jumbled, and unnavigable if people just posted 'ideas' without the slightest bit of research into whether their 'fresh idea' hadn't already been discussed to death, torn apart, and generally decided to be put to bed. 

 

Also, any idea containing 'more fuel,' unless it has been thoroughly thought out, will get shot to pieces and the poster not taken very seriously.

guys ...you all seem a little frustrated and nervous.
you better give a grip.

if you do not like an idea, ignore it. simply.
"Mock" an idea, whatever it is, is not a sign of maturity.

 

Especially for new users.. when they comes here and finds that "welcome" .. it will not be encouraged to remain, and much less to spend money.

 

That's all.

Yawn

 

Thanks for the slightly mental psychiatric observations. We may seem negative because we've had 'gas station' about ten trillion times already. 

 

That is all

OK, I understand you are bored tired frustrated or whatever or anything else ... but there are a thousand ways to respond.

Including even ignore. It's better than "seem negative" or respond annoyed.

 

Peace and love my friends. I'll stop here.

Only thing i find strange here is a couple of you experienced folks saying that this is a "gimme more fuel" idea.

Daily amount of fuel scavenged is capped based on the account lvl so you can introduce Iraqui Oil Fields as a map and you would still not get more fuel.

Maybe you would find the cap amount in one mission instead of 3. Big deal and definitely no reason to call this a more fuel idea.
