Project Zomboid is an open-ended zombie-infested sandbox. It asks one simple question – how will you die? Whether surviving in Knox County free-roam or controlling Indie Stone mascot Baldspot in his quest to save his injured wife Kate – death is always a certainty. Quite how long you manage to put it off is another matter…

Its not just Zombies that will kill but the environment. You can build and fortify to keep the horde at bay or always be on the move. Fight the cold during winter. Farm to spend less time making risky supply runs. Make to much noise with firearms and zombies will be attracted to your location, forming groups organically making it difficult to fight them off or pass by unnoticed. Over exert yourself and you might not be able to make a run for it when it counts. Depression, starvation, loneliness, illness, insanity, a lethal bite...

10 comments by TKAzA on Jul 22nd, 2015

Project Zomboid the amazingly moddable, zombie infested creative sandbox has just released another standout feature for all you budding architects of the apocalypse.

The new creative mode in build 33 gives survivors the option to build their own houses, forts or even towns and cities with a innovative and simple to use editor, coupled with the ability to join forces and build with your online friends, you will never be alone in your creative endeavors again.

Here's what the devs have to say about build 33s release.

Quote:

Creative Mode is something we first experimented with in the dim and distant past, but came back to mind when we were looking at the speed of our own map production and the tools that we use. The Louisville map we’re building is very ambitious so, alongside EasyPickins’ awesome existing mapping systems, we started to think about ways we could populate our world more quickly.

Quote:

Furthermore, Creative Mode works completely in online multiplayer, so players can join forces to build an entire town on their server – before using it as a fun and engaging place to die from zombies. Split screen support isn’t currently coded, but will certainly be something we look into as we refine the system.

In terms of Build 33 – the first version of Creative Mode will cover only the essentials: containing basic house construction, furniture population, landscaping and so on. As we roll it out further, however, we’ll provide additional tools that will let you create neat road systems, sidewalks, gardens, fences, levels of erosion and all that fun stuff.

A stand out comment from the developers is the possibility in linking all user created maps so they are linked into one huge zombie infested world created by the players for the players.

Quote:

Then if all servers have their own unique maps, who’s to say we couldn’t see about giving them an option to have their borders connected one day? With Build 33 the Zomboid infection will be easier to spread than ever before. Exciting times!

Don't forget you can also share your creations on modDB and indieDB to get even more exposure for your custom maps, mods and creations, so why not add yours today.

So, I'm using a Windows 7 computer with a Nvidia graphic card I think. I'm running the game windowed and on low quality. It keeps coming up with either this error; Error: String index out of range: - 1

or it locks up when I try starting the game after I create my character. Any help?

Shouldn't be related to your graphics card, that is a java error. Have you tried modding the game at all? Make sure this is a 100% fresh install of PZ

According To lemmy we should be getting an update that is stable in c aoulpe weeks
They did not specify how long and what date becuas ethey don't want to disilusion the fans with some things that haven't been put in yet. If we could maybe we could do a fundraiser on you tube that way the developer could add more content and have more money to fund the game

This is one of those examples of how great indie alpha funding can be... Project Zomboid is a real work of love fueled by a great community and great interaction between developers and fans. Even if it's just in the earliest stages the colossal potential it has for modding alone makes this a game full of potential. As for the game itself it has great music, and awesome atmosphere... It's a great ride for all the nostalgic gamers that fondly remember isometric games. And the structure of this game…

I enjoyed this game for a while, but due to the constant "patch coming soon" but never actually coming, im giving up on this game for now, maybe the game will finally be slightly updated within a year.
